INDIAN PAY SEASON.
A Harvest at Anadarko for Saloons.
Gamblers and Tough Characters.
Tii- i"uiiir qua. wilt payment of
tin- tnilians nun mado nt Aanadarko
last wi-rk. anil that town has been
(warming with all daxaes and condi
tions of people, all bent on separating
the noble red man from as much of
hie easily-gotten wealth as possible.
Gamblers, courtesans, pickpockets,
stteaktaieves, snide actors, tamnle
venders and various other specimens
of humanity who live by tholr wits,
have made tho town tholr headquar
ters during tho payment and while tho
Indian's monoy lastotl they lived on
tho fat of the land.
"The week of Indian payment Is a
red-letter occasion to the uncivilised
Indian," says a correspondent, "for It
means fire-water, feasting and numer
ous othor forbidden pleasures. If there
ta any money left after the Indian
agent deducts the amount due poor
Lo's creditors. It is quickly dissipated
in gambling, debauchery or riotous liv
ing. The gamblers and saloon-keepers
are fully cognisant ot this fact, too,
and never failed to make preparations
for getting hold of aB much of the
Indian's money as they can Induce him
to part with, and the task of persuad
ing him to "let loose" Is not dim
cult The Indians are paid quarterly
In cash and rations, and from four
days to an entire week, are usually
required to transact the business con
nected with the payment, which Is no
small Job, particularly when there are
many creditors, and all the gororn
ment red tope and regulations to be
gone through With to secure the trad
ers and other creditors their money.
So. as the week for the Indians to be
paid off approaches, the town begins
to III! tip with an undesirable class of
cltlsen the worst olement of mankind
to be found In the new country, in faeL
No matter how dttlt the times are. or
what the conditions surrounding the
payment, the Indians rarely hold onto
their funds longer than a week at
most, and with some of them the
money lasts scarcely three days. They
always get gloriously drunk, gorge
themselves with moat and drink, and
If they cannot find sufficient gambling
opportunities, give tholr money away
to anyone who will tako the trouble to
try and got It. And there aro always
plenty of ' that' class of parasltos
around at such tlmos. Tho avorage
Indian who deponds on tho govern
ment for support Is usually wonderful
ly deflclont In a knowledge of the
value of money. "Como easy, go easy"
Is his motto.

multi-millionaire mining man of Par

Several weeks ago Alvarado wrote
to Minister of Finance Joseph Ives
Limantour offering to pay oft the pub

been renewed In another way, direct

Alvarado has acquired a vast for

got his fortune out of the ground and
that it is right he should give a por

in princely style and has given large
sums of money to charity.
