ad by Congressman Bart hold t. of St.

(Special, to Dally Panhandle.)
Washington. July 23. Tho board
engaged in districting Indian Ter
ritory preparatory to the constitu
tional convention, has Issued a state
ment through Vs chairman that ses
sions will bo held In Muskogee for
five days, beginning Tuesday.
Hearings will be granted to repre
sentatives qf political parties, cities,
commuuitlea and proposed districts
for the discussion of tho work of ap
portionment. It is thought tho work
of thfl board will bo completed by
'August 115, and that tho election of
delegates to the constitutional con
vention will take place on November
6. Another Important evenl in the
territories next woek will be the clos
ing of the rolls of the five civilized
tribes, as provided for by congress.
The closing will be final, and strenu
ous efforts are, living made to get
the nanv,s of all members on the
rolls within tho time limit. Tho num
ber of Indians entitled to allotment
Is very nearly 100,000. Many of
these will recvlve money, ns them la
not enough land to go around.

(Special to Dally Panhandle.)
Austin, July 23. Some weeks hro
complaint wus niado to tho nttorncy
general that the Itock Island Con
struction company, a corporation In
corporated tinder tho Oklahoma laws,
was rngagod In the work of construc
tion of tho Texas, New Mexico &, Ps
ellle railway, which was recently In
corporated, h lino running from Mc
Kinney into New Mexico. Investiga
tion in tho office) of tho secretary of
slato showed that the construction
company above mentioned had neith
er a Texas charter nor a permit, lo do
business in Texas, and luvusllgatlon
at McKlnney by Klrsl. Assistant At
torney tieneial W. 10. Hawkins, dis
closed the fact that tho company
had actually begun the- work of
constructing tho iiliovc-nientioned
lino of riillway, and was stlll-cngagcd
In thai work, under contract with
said railway company. Chapter Ha
of the general laws of TVxas, IHiKI,
provides:
"That no corporation exiept one
chartered under the laws of the slate
of Texas shall bo authorized or per
mitted to construct, build, operate,
aiiulre. own or maintain any rail

The attorney general held that this
law prohibits, a foreign corporation
from i onsi ritcting a railway, in Tex-
hs, even under a contract with a Tex
as rsllway company, nnd accordingly,
notified tho officers of tho construc
tion company that they would not.
be allowed to further prosecute! the
