Strange things happen In the Indian
Torrltory as well as elsewhere It Is
not altogether strange, either, but a
breaking out of good, common sense.
Tho town of Lehigh Is remembered as
n stronghold of tho Marcum faction
during the Marcum-Wolvorton strug
gle. It was Imposslblo to hear a good
word ftbout Ardmoro, or an Ardmoro
man from that place. Tlmo tho oradl
rator of all differences has succoeded
In disponing tho wrathful vongeanco

had might but good words, and tho Lo
high Loader furnishes a proof of this
In tho following: "Honry M. Air

simply grand. Whilo short, as all
tablo talks usually are, yot it contaluod

FIRST GUM FIRED.
Tlx- first gun ha bwn Bred In the
renewal of the l-sttle for representa
tion In congress fr Iniiian Territory.
The Chickasaw Nation has gone oa
record and a big convention will be
held !n Ardmore November t per
fect organization for rarryinic to con
gress the appeal of the people for Im
Some weeks ago the Capital noted
the mass meeting held at Ada. Chick
asaw Nation, when resolutions vera
passed asking the mayor of Ardmore to
co-operate In the effort to organise the
Chickasaw Nation and present a solid
front to congress when It meets wtthla
a few weeks. Mayor Dick of Ardmore
has accepted the suggestion and on
November .'0 the business wen of tbe
Chickasaw Nation will speak In no un
certain language for the right that
have unjustly been denied Indian Ter
ritory. The Ardmore meeting will aurly
realise the opportunity presented at
the coming session of congress where
a pending measure that fully satisfies
tbe demands of the Territory at this
time .will surely be given considera
tion. This measure Is the Territory
of Jefferson bill Introduced and
backed by Congressman Moon of Ten
nessee. It would be unwise to at
tempt the passage of a new bill along
the lines embodied In Mr. Moon's
bill.. Having to Its credit the unani
mous recommendation of the commit
tee on territories and the backing of
an almost united press of the Terri
tory together with numerous petitions
snd resolutions passed by municipali
ties, the Moon bill Is by no means a
congressional stranger. The people of
the Territory are familiar with It pro
visions and have willingly given It the
stamp of approval.
If representation In congress Is de
sired, at once the most practicable
method of obtaining the relief Is to
back up Congressman Moon nnd add
prestige to bis threat that no business
could be considered as a matter of per
sonal privilege until bis reported bill
is put to a vote.
The people of the Chickasaw Nation
have taken a great step toward attest
ing their Independence. The example
shun! be followed by all of the Ave
tribes wltlila a short time and culmln
ated by a rousing general convention
of all the people at some convenient
place Just before congress assembles,
TAKE UP THE CRY.
The Mass Meeting at Ardmore on No

The Ardmorelte Is in receipt of the
following letter from n citizen on the
Hock Island road which show how

8pectal to the Ardmorelte.
Ada. I. T., Oct. 26. The prospects
for two new- railroads and the large
receipts of cotton has caused no little
boom In this thriving city. Last week
no less than $15,000 worth of real es
tate changed hands. Among impor
tant deals was one whereby Judge Hox

Texas, purchased 80-foot front on Main
street at a consideration of 6,600.

The Mousquotalre, a Parisian Jour

and then became extinct It was car

with an astonishing disregard of busi

"Whatever you like, my boy," Du

would explain to every new axplrant,
"wo must understand ono thing: 1

Everylody was dazzled, nnd Dumas
blmpclf more than all the rest. No
business enterprise, however, could ex
ist on such a Imsls, and the Journal be
gan to languish. Then a man named
Boulo proposed taking tho speculation
out of Dumas' hands. II 0 offered tho
great man 100 francs n day, which

"Here," said Boulo, Is a checkbook
full of those Httlo tinted leaves you arc

your 100 francs.
Diunns loved money, and his face
beamed with delight "But suppose,"
said ho, "that some day 1 should want

"Well, all you have to do Is to sond

When these three Modern Samari

Tishomingo In quest of materia! for
our noble fraternity, we verily be
lieved that the Institution would go
upon It merits, which are too plain
to be overlooked by the dullest ob

have hailed from Kansas City. While
Ardmore Is young, and many Improve

the Territory with three of the strong

A suburban golf club has a Jananasa

taste are beyond question, but be has
a very 6light knowledge of English,
and this sometimes causes bim to
make ludicrous mistakes. A young
woinnn gave a tea at tho clubhouse
and sent for Ocka a few days abend of
time, so that all the details ot her
party might be perfected. She ar
ranged for everything and at the end
said: "Now Ocka, at the tea we must
have apple plo order." "Yes, madam,
apple pie," Ocka returned. "No, apple
pie order," said tho young girL "All
right. Mo understand. Apple pie,"
Ocka repeated with an obstinate smile.
"Apple pie order," tho other corrected
again, and Ocka took his leave. He
