Cruco was successful In having the
indictments quashed and while he

Eastern district of Oklahoma wired
a letter to the department ot Justice
at Washington outlining the suits and
the ipiashing of tho imlictmonts by
Judge Marshall and has placed th

THE LAND SUITS
Tho reporters for the Vrdmorolto
called at the office of Judge .lame
E. Humphrey this afternoon and whon
asked about the present hltuatlon of
the land suits by the government nt
Muskogee, Judge Humphrey said,
"Tho whole question as to tho right
of the United States to maintain
the suits was now In tho hands ot
Judge Campbell for a decision. The
demurrer was argued orally com
mencing the 22ml ot March and last
ed for three days and a number
of printed' brlcfB wero filed. Wo con
fidently expect that the Judgo will
Hiistalu the demurrer- and dismiss
tlio cases, 'llhcro may be somo frauds
committed here and there nnd thu
people ot this state nre anxious that
actual frauds bo prosecuted in tho
propor courts and tho stato courta
of Oklahoma aro ahlo to caro for
tho rights ot Its citizens. Should the
court dismiss the cases It la very
doubtful It tho government would ap
peal as there Is now a now adminis
tration and some caro would bo ta
ken. If tho court should ovornilo
tho demurrers then tho demurrants
would nppoal to tho supremo court
of the United States, probably a few
solocted cases as tost propositions."
Judgo Cnmpboll said at tho conclu
sion of tho argument that owing to
the great Importance to tho stato ot
those cases, that the consideration
of the legal questions Involved should
have the right of way, that ho would
receive for flfteon days printed briefs
and aftor that give tho questions In
volved his lmmcdlato attention. It
Is probablo that tho town lot casta
will be decided this week but the
legal questions Involved In thoso
cases are ontlrely different from
tho laud cases. It Is understood that
a decision will be reailed sometlmo
this month.
