SAYS HE ILL NOT DROP IT DISTRICT ATTORNEY MELETTE STILL AFTER ROLL THIEVES. A SPECIAL GRAND JURY Strong Sentiment Among Muskogee Business Men that Creek' Rolls Were Public Property. Muskogee, I. T., April 30. "The Creek roll scandal has not yet been dropped," said a federal oflicial here todr.y. -"I wil Ido everything ,iuin.v niwer"fii'"have" Tie matter probed to the bottom and it is more than likely that a special grand jury will be call ed to continue the ivestigation. " Commissioner Bixbv said today that, he is anxious to have the matter sift ed to the bottom. It is understood that the federal grand jury, which ad journed last night without bringing any indictments against the roll thieves, had the information in hand by which at least three persons could have been indicted. District Attorney Mellette will try to have this inform ation' used before a special grand jury if one can be called, and a more thor ough investigation than ever will be instituted. The attorney general's of fice at Washington will be asked to continue the prilling either by a spe cial inspector or more likely by a spe cial grand jury method. There is no lousier any doubt that the rolls were copied and the inform ation stolen from the oflice of the Dawes commission. The only ques tion to be determined is who is res ponsible for the theft. Several per sons testified before the grand jury that they had purchased copies of the original roll. Four different land men of this city went into combination and purchased a copy, paying .f-MiO for it. There is every reason to be lieve that this information was fur nished the grand jury, as these men testified before that body. "An em ploye of the I'nion Indian agency also purchased a copy and turned it over to the Indian agent. ' Federal and Dawes commission ollicinls are deter mined to have the roll thieves punish ed if possible. The same sentiment, however, is not found among a nimber of business men who believe that the interior de partment had no legal right .to with hold information concerning the rolls, which, in their opinion, are public re cords and should not be secret. Some lawyei-s also are found who contend that there is no statute under which the roll thieves could be prosecuted. District Attorney Melctte, however. ti.inU 'liflVentlv. and he is as much determiped as ever to run down the . ., n 1 rr secutc them. ' During the investigation' William M:ut:ii, dr., a de k in the Creek land i Hice, and a witness before the grand jury, was suspended. Today, C. S. Dawson, head of the recording divi sion, was suspended. A few other changes are expected in the eomufls sion within the next few days. Mr. Bixby would not state the resoiis for making these chaises, and they may have nothing to do with the Creek rolls scandal. These divisions, how ever, were the ones under fire during the grand jury investigation. 'ITI.SA. INDIAN TERRITORY. MONDAY APRIL 30, l'tdti. to Ask Sen.
