I LAND OFFICE SLANDERED GROSSLY MISREPRESENTED DV SOUTH McALESTER PAPER. Author of Article Wholly Ignorant of Facta or Purposely Misrepresents Them to Attack tho Represen tative! of Commissioner. In icw cf tho fact Unit tho South McAloslor Capital has boon making eomo startling assertions concornluK alleged graft at the Ardmoro lanu ot flco and printing matter that Is with' out tho least scintilla of truth, to war rant tho statements made. A represcn tatlvo of. tho Ardmorolto waa detailed to fully Inqtilro Into the matter. It ficcmn that tho Capital published an arfl'U In a recent editorial, relative to ' grafting" at tho Chickasaw land ofllco In Mils city, which In view of the wjdo circulation it is obtaining by uo inn n Minted in various other news papers, ihotild not bo allowed to pass ns the pure unadulterated truth. Tho authvr of tho article In question must bo very Ignorant ot tho true condl tlons, or Is purposoly misrepresenting them, to attack tho representatives oi the Commissioner, tho successor to tho Dawes Commission, for which tho Capital lfbvor had any love, and more particularly since they established headquarters at Muskogeo rather than the rock-ribbed town or sown mcai ester. Ono of tho principal charges pre ferred In this tlrndo Is Uint "a Choc' taw Indian from Grant, I. T., who was desirous of filing" "was told that tlckct3 would not bo given out until 1-30 that nfternooon," and that by mean"? of a grafter ho was enabled to obtain n "ticket," and caught a train for Inme at noon. Tho artlclo fails to say whether It was a railroad ticket lm hc cured, or what manner of ticket. Tlio nr sumption is loft, however, that this Ind'an was ablo to aecuro a ticket of adniftnnce to the land ofllco, good at some future date, before tho rog nlar hour at whl?h those tickets are dl-'i'ibuvd. Any person familiar with tlr train service at Ardmore v.ih roadlly see that this ftory has not oven the semblance o truth. Itwouiu bo lntt-rMting for tho Capital to In form Uk people on what railroad this "Indian" took lus departure from An.- moro for Grant, I. T., at "noon." Tho only trains leaving Ardinoro which would carry a passenger for Grant to lils destination leaves Ardmore owr the Arkansas & Choctaw at 0:du in tho morning, and over tho Rock Island via Wistor and tho Frisco at 3-00 in the afternoon. It would appear that tho "Indian" could havo 3ecured his ticket of admission at tho regular hour and still havo had abundance of tlmo in which to got to tho depot nt threo o'clock that afternoon, or 0.05 tho next morning. Tho Capital deals In too much gciv crallty. It should at least glvo tho namo ot tho person who states that ho applied for n plat at Ardmore, and after writing several letters, secured nn order from Comml-sloncr Ulxby for tho plat. It is undoubtedly truo that, In view of tho fact that tho larger portion ot tho Chickasaw nation has already been allotted, persons coming from tho Choctaw nation may havo consul crahlo dlfllculty In securing desirable allotments in tho Chickasaw nation, without obtaining tho assistance ot oxpcrlencwl land-locators, referred to by the Capital as graitcrs. it certainly nover has been considered tho prov inco of tho employes of tho commls slon nt tho Chickasaw land ofllco. or or any other land ofllco In tho Indian Territory to securo allotments for cit izens, or to Inform them whero such allotments can bo aecured, oxcept In tho caso of arbitrary allotments, ivht-ro tho matter is attended to c. field parties of tho commissioner. Tho wholo artlclo published in tho Capital is a fabrication, puro and fclmple, and must havo generated In tho clastic Intellect of tho editor ot that paper, whoso utter lack of knowl odgo cf tho truo conditions Is rather remarkable.

TfiR., TUESDAY STATEHOOD CHAMPION EX-SENATOR BLAIR MAKES SOME COMPARISONS. Declares It Would be an Outrage to Longer Deny Statehood to People of Sister Territories Who Clam or for Single Statehood. Washington, Sept. 18. Ex-Senator H. 1. Illulr of Now Hampshire has just returned from a trip through Ok. lahonia and Indian Territory, nnd Is the strongest champion of statehood for the twin territories who has ro rently come to terns. Ho Insisted to day upon Instituting comparisons be tween Oklahoma, Indian Territory am. New Hampshire, from which he drew the conclusion that It would be nn outrage to longer deny statehood to the applicants. "The trip was a revelation to mo, said ex-Senator IMaIr, "and It I were a few years younger I would pitch my permanent tent In one of Uimo heaven-favored territories. I consider tlmt no part of the country offers to young men of character and ambltlcn such golden iiancoR of doing something with their lives. "I was In Oklahoma City July 12, and listened with keen interest to the proceeding of the great state hood convention, composed ot dele gates from the llvo civilized tribes and from Oklahoma. There were more than l.uOO of theso delegates, for the most part men of education and inllucnce -shrowd lawyers, pros porous planters, successful bankers, wenlthy merchants nnd solid looking cattle men. Honostly, I do not re member to have ever seen at a nation pi republican convention, n higher e nernl average of ability and of par llmentary knowledge. Never did 1 at tend a convention where thoso prosont woro animated by a nobler or loftier purpose. Casting aside all trickory cr vuiisnnshlp, they had assembled f r the laudable causo of declaring In favor of the creation of a single state to be com posed of tho sister torrltor ! k. They were not there as democrats rr republicans, but as patriots and Americans'. I felt proud to think such wei my countrymen. Thcs should by all means' have their groat project consummated. Indeed, taoso t-jrltorlos are now a stnto In all except name. Tho formality of admission by con gressional sanction Is tho only thing lacking. It Is a shamo and an outrage to keep Uiom out of the union any longer. "They have cno nnd one-half mil lion pooplo as against New Hamp shire's 400,000 and 70.000 square miles to tho less than 10,000 ot the Granito.state. With ovory rcqulslto en titling thcnl to admlssi n tho boon ot statehood cannot bo much longor withheld." "Golna to the Ardmore Fair?" Is n common question all along our lino between Ft. Smith and Oklaho ma City, with most every ono you meet, said Industrial agent Hill of tho Santa Fo this morning. "In my opin lnlon. baring bad weather, your town will ba taxed to its utmost capacity to take caro ot tho visitors and exhi bitors. Not only havo I been question ed relativo to your fair by Texas peo ple, but Inquiries aro coining from other states from parties who aro breeders of fine stock and owners oi raco horses. It has been my ambition to seo Anlmoro properly dcvolopc ever slnco I first visited your thriving town nnd from tho determination and Interest manifested at tho meeting of tho Commercial club last night which I attended.

You havo tho best mntorlal I havo over seen, nnd I can assure you, you will not fall under thoso conditions. I cnu promlso you nil tho nsslstanco possi ble from our officials, ns they have a warm spot closo to their heart for Ard more. Lot mo exhort you on your work nnd sny that the: Invitation to call on the Santa Fo at any tlmo, is extended for such assrstnnco aa would bo proper nnd In lino for them to ren der and I promlso you it will bo forth coming. "What Ardmore wants," continued tho speaker, "Is a few moro pay rolls which can bo brought nbout in duo tlmo. Tho field Is hero and tho oppor tunity Is closo at hand. Factories aro looking for such opportunities as Ard- moro Ih In possession of, and to bring tho proper parties, attention to tho' facts Is all that Is needed to locate somo good ones In Ardmore. Let mo encourage you to keep on with tho gtxid work, and you will succeed, you havo tho opportunities, nnd I am sure that you win meet thorn. I hopo to meet with you moro frequently In tho future and co-opernto with juii to our mutual Int'orest. I am' nt your scnico nt all times.

"If tills can bo dono,' ' said Mr. Morgan, "It would show that tho town was Interested In tho -Farmers' Union" nnd he prodlcted ex cellent results. As a reprjiscntntlvo of the Farmers Union, J. F, Carter stated that the report had gone out that Ardmore ban boycotted tho cotton yard of tho Far mers' Union. Hc hoped such was not Uio ease as lie wished to see friendly relations between tho union nnd tho business men of Anlmoro nnd If the olllco of weigher wns created ho would like to sco tho union repre sented. United Statoa District Attorney Johnson stated that ho was amazed at tho statement, ana report in circula tion, Tho main object of the weigher was to creato a friendly relation or feeling between the farmer and the merchant and that this was one of tho main objects of tho Anlmoro Commer cial club. Ho maintained that tho cre ation of tho otllco would thereby es tablish this feeling, that tho object also was to sea that the farmers got correct weights. After some discussion it was raovod that tho chair appoTnt a committee of llvo as representatives of tho Com mercial club to visit tho city council which was in session. Tho chair ap pointed Messrs.
