One of tho not able features of tho congress Is tho strong representative female element prcsonL Among tho prominent wor kers aro Miss Charlotte Grany of Jxm- don, Mrs. Mary Hunt of Hoston, Ot tlllio Hoffman, Mathilda I.ammcrs and Dcrtha Wobor. Mrs. Hunt said: "The ovldenco Is conclusive that tho anti-alcoholic movement Is taking a deep root In every progrcBslvo coun try, Tho discussions In tho congross prove that tho movomcnt is Intelli gently Inspired and that It is attract ing tho support of men and women who shape the practical issues of tho 'world. Undoubtedly wo can go for ward most effectively on educational lines. Woman's Influence must con tinue to bo our chief driving power." Count do Skarzynsky, a medical offi cer connected with tho Russian treas ury department, said: "Pollco regulations such as thosoot Austria, for example, cannot stamp out alcoholism. Reform must bogln in tho kindergartens? bo thoroughly ..supplemented in tho homo and pro ceed uninterruptedly as tho pupil ad vances in tho sphoro of education. Eventually humanity will understand boyond'all question tho evils of drink. This knowledge will arrest thd habit which Is bearing half tho raco to de struction."

OFFICIAL INFORMA TION TO TWO NATIONS. Chairman Blxby Talks Allotments. Exact Number of Allottees In termarried Roll Delayed Seg regated Coal Lands. Tho Soutli McAllister Capital's staff correspondent visited tho Atoka land oftlco and learns much of Interest to tho Chickasaw and Choctaw citizens Tho correspondent says: Tho puBllo has a very mcagor con ception of tho mngnltudo of tho pro cess of allotting Indian lands. From a partial view of tho official Workings ono Is apt to conclude that the pro cos of tho government officials has been slow. In this Idea tho man un familiar with tho procedure of tho Dawes commission, or of tho allot ment of lands, docs both himself and tho government an Injustice. Tho writer visited tho Choctaw land office today. Ho wont through every department. Interviewed tho officials In qharge, Including Chairman Tarns Ulxby; examined tho numerous blanks that form tho seemingly endless red tapo which stands as tho Indian's pro tector; and has concluded that tho Indian will get all his rights just as soon as conservatism will admit, and that ho Is to bo congratulated for having such a generous and safo guar dian as tho great federal government, -Allotment of lands Is but ono of tho concluding stages of tho excellently systematlzod work accomplished by tho Dawes commission. Thcro Is a system everywhero about tho land office. Every attacho has his special duty and evory record Is so compiled that It requires but a minute's work to produco tho whole history of any L-uoctaw .citizen, Including tho char acter and location of his improve ments, 'the number In his family and all other details that havo been gath ered from time to timo and added to this rcmarkablo collection of Individ ual hiitory. At present thcro aro twenty-six clerks In tho Atoka land ofTlco. Chair man Dlxby Is In personal charge. W. II. Angcll, tho chief clork, Is a ro Bourccfui man with a thorough know! edgo of tho Choctaw department of tho Indian scrvlco. Chairman Dlxby snatchod sufficient timo from his duties to talk to the Capital representative. Mr. Ulxby is an old nowspapor man and naturally has a jcind Inclination to mombcrs of tho "profesh." Dolled down, tho head of tho Dawos commission gavo out tho following: The work of Issuing orders to ap plicants will bo continued, all this week as tho special ordor of business.

Jones will present his ticket, or number, to tho clork In chargo of tho cltlzonsnlp de partment. Hero a record will bo mado of nls citizenship in a book contain ing original and dupllcnto blanks. Thoso citizenship certificates aro ar ranged In seven forms, each printed on a different colored papor, ono for each classification of citizenship. This cltlzonshlp certificate entittcs tho ap plicant to enter tho allotting depart ment, where ho defines tho location of his nllotmcnt nnd passes on to tho locating dopartmouL Ho takes oath as to his rights to said lands through prior residence, Improvements, If nny. or claim. Without taking with him nny cortlflcnto of allotment tho In dian passes nut assured t)iat his cer tificate of allotment will bo mailed or delivered to him. Tho dato of mail ing thoso rortlilcntos Is uncertain, but may occur within thirty days. Allow ing nlno months thereafter for the filing of a contest; If nono Is mndo, then tho deed Is written nnd forward ed to tho secretary of tho Interior for ratification. Hero It mny remain In definitely, completely at tho pleasure of tho secretory. No citizen whoso rights nro pend ing In tho citizenship court will re- eclvo recognition of any kind at tho land ofAco until his case Ih finally de cided. Court claimants, with or with out Improvements, nro to receive tho samo trcatmcnL Tholr homesteads, If any, nro matter of record In tho land office nnd will bo rosorved from allotment pending final disposition of the suits. ' Thoro is unfortunate dolay In rat ification by Secretary Hitchcock of tho Intermarried rolls and until this ratification Is secured tho Internitrled citizen is not admitted to tho land office. Chairman Dlxby says ho docs no know Just when a decision will bo rendered. This condition prompted a number of Intermarried citizens to telegraph tho secretary asking for ac tion. Much fooling oxlsts among thoso from a dlstanco who aro told that they must await tho action of tho secretary. No ono yet knows tho location of tho mineral lands as determined by tho government commission. Mon day morning when allotment com menccs there will bo a map of tho segregated district, on file at the land offlco and every allotteo will know very soon after his turn arrives whoth or his proposed nllotmont Is Included in mo segregation. i;nairman uixuy stated that theso maps, which will bo largo, lino ones, will bo on -ealo at tho Mtiskogco offlco of tho commission in about a week.
