Ardmore, Thursday, April 16, 1903,
INVESTIGATE THE INDICTED.
All men nro lnnocont until proven
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
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.

Washington, April V"- The depart

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

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.

Thero has been some such talk as
