A public indictment merits proof of innocence or guilt. There Is an urgent demand for the strictest federal investigation in tho Choctaw and Chickasaw nations. It Is correctly "Poor Ijo" that should now bo given the sheltering hand of tho Rovcrnmont. Not tho Indian that has long resided In tho Torrltory, hut tho poor unfortunatoc to whom has corao an inheritance that Is tho bono of con tention of numerous schomos and on terprlscB that appear to bo distinctly advantageous to tho white men iden tified with tho suspicious movoraonU Tho Mississippi Choctaws, Illiterate Impoverished and timid, are being "bought and sold as bo many slaves, , .fey corporations organlted for tho solo nurposo of this human traffic. -Tho luiontlons of the pcoplo who aro to gain by this removal of Indians from Mississippi to tho Torrltory Is ' not ono of charity, but of gain. It Is julrilttod by them that one-half of tho poor Indian's allotment will soon bo 1 In tho grasp of the corporations. ' If so, how? This Is what tho government should expose. If tho methods of thOBe deal ers In human Hush, who oponly soil Indians with their allotments, can stand tho lime light of fcdoral Inves tigation, tho corporations should de mand investigation. Thoy stand hargcd. U they will not vindicate themselves It Is a confession to cor ruption. Capital. Tho mattor of tho location of Choc taw Indians In this country from Mis sissippi by companion organized for that purpose Is being generally dis missed and tho promotors of the plan ro bolng nccusod of devising a schemo for robbing tho Indians. Por ons who take this view of tho mat tor should kcop, at least, two points Jn mind. First, Chat tho commission to tho five jivlllzod trlbos have taken the mutter upon thorasolvos to look aftur the wolfare of the Indian nnd when his Interests tome In conflict with those of tho whlto man tho In dlan always receive the favor of the Dawns commission. In the mattor of these syndicate contracts with the .Mississippi Choctaws, tho so mo rule will hold good: and, second. If the In dian had been loft to himself ho would neither have bad the means nor tho Ingenuity to have taken ad vantage of his Inheritance from the great father. If tho syndicate suc ceeds In getting ovory foot of the Indian's land oxeept his homestead, lio Is still far better off than In his Mississippi home paying ront io tho 1 white man. Tho opportunity is now offered for Bolng on record as a progressive all Izcn of the Indian Torrltory in th'o "World's Fair proposition. We must raise $2,000 or take a hack scat among the towns of the Indian Torrltory. Ardmore is to b congratulated on being designated as the place for holrt log the national summer normal hi year. In a letter from Prof. E. II. Hlnsbaw of Btoemaeld Seminary the Ardmorelte. that gmrtemaB coa reys this Information. Profs. Htosfcaw and Hendrlx will have charge of this summer school. Thee bmw are recog nized as the leading educators of the Indian Territory and it goes without saying that tho summer normal at Hargrove will bo a power for good and will be largely attended. The -ess and the citizens of the town will lend every encouragement. In tho matter of the World's Fair building the Indian Territory baa the opportunity of doing 150,000 worth of advertising at half price. Tho United States government has given one-half tho amount. This Is a sufficient sum to construct aa appropriate building and It will be the means of bringing millions to the Territory and will be worth thousands of dollars to Ard more. Tho pleasure and satisfaction of having Indian Territory headquar ters at St Louis during the exposi tion will, In Itself, bo worth the price. THE MISSISSIPPI CHOCTAW. That Boston syndlcato that has rais ed monoy to bring the Mississippi Choctaws here to got allotments Is a little slow. The dating for filing of applications by such Choctaws expir ed March 26. It would have been a good graft if worked soon enough. South McAlester News. But' io Mississippi Choctaw who has been Identified may yet movo to tho Territory and recolvo his 'share of the allotablo lands. ENTIRELY NEW FEATURE.

Dr. Wiley's Borax Boarders Are Chang ing Color. Washington, April V"- The depart ment clerks who for sovornl months havo submitted to Dr. Wiley's borax cured food experiments are slowly as suming a pink complexion. Dr. Wiley's food oxporlmonts nro conducted with tho strictest secrecy. A doson or more young men connoctod with tho department of agriculture havo for sovorul months boon living on a dlot proscrlbod by Dr. Wlloy, who Is Booking to dctcrmlno tho chomlral offocts of borax and other chemicals on proparod foods. It has only developed within the last weok that all who havo boon at tho doctor's table aro taking on a pink complexion. It 1b not thought that this Is due to borax, which has been' glvon to the young men In tholr food but to somo chemical Ingrodlont which has boon mlxod with tho food un known to tho subjects. The only admission that will bo mode at the department Is that the drugs used in the food have, up to date, provod absolutely harmloss. Tho pink complexion which somo chemi cal evidently cnusos, gives tho men a healthy appoaranco such as would result from good circulation of blood brought on by outdoor oxorclie.

Constitutional Convention for Twin Territories Urged. To the Ardnoreite. Wynwrwood. I. T.. April 15 The weather Is getting pretty dry la this section, but vegetation is growing well aot withstanding. The protracted mooting at the C. P church dosed last sight at high tide, the Rev. C. P. FKsgeratd having been called away. Many convert were made apd the results of the moetleg are satisfactory and will abide. Samuel Houston Hargls surprised his friends last Sunday by marrying him a wife. Joy go with him. The now city officials have been sworn In and are now ready to hear everybody's complaints. It was Jef ferson who sahl that the great fault of all governments was In governing too much. The tendency of all governments has ever been towards paternalism, to wards relying on the government to do what tho Individual ought to un dortako for himself. Such tendencies neithor develop nations nqr men. Thero has been some such talk as having a convention of the people of the Twin Territories for the forma tlon of a constitution to be submitted to tho next con gross. Why is it not agitated more? I have yet to see the citizen that opposes it. Warning Order. In the United States Court In the In dlan Territory, Southern District. Mattlo Robertson, plaintiff, vs. Oeorgo Robertson, defendant.
