Numerous wit nesses were cxiimlncil by Chief Iavt Clerk CeorRo Oleic Ilogcrs. TIiobo wit nessuH Included leading attorneys of this city and person who transact business with the force. Ou the oth er hand tha witnesses testified that thero had been no discrimination or lrreKtilarltie.1 such as were alleged by two newspapers In the Choctaw na tion. Stories of alleged graft were given wide publicity and commented on in the very nature of things It was assumed that graft was rampant here. Hut tho allegations could not bo sus tained in a single instance. The testi mony developed that tho otuce was conducted In a systematic way and that ovcryono who had business with it was accorded courteous treatment. Of course. Chief Clerk Marr felt grati fied to find that everyone was gen erally satisfied and pleased and that not u single complaint developed. Tho editors, who alleged that Irreg ularities existed, failed to show up and testify". Thoy wero notified In plenty of time, but Ihoy preferred to stay nt'homo and write moro fako articles in tho hopo of Increasing their circu lation. Apparently this was the only excuso for publishing the slanderous ruuorts. These editors should feel heartily ashamed of themselves for tho snrak trick they wero guilty of, and make full retraptlon In justice to the parties involved.
