Information reachod Douison to-day that an armod force of cowmoii had invaded tho llt tlo town of Ardmore, on the Santa Fo railway in tho Chickasaw nation, and had compelled Collector Ben McMish to surrender tho cattlo held for taxes. From Mr. Jim Thompson, a promi nent Chlcasaw, who to-day returned from Ardmoro, Itls learned that tho invading party numbered about fifty with'.tho und stars stripes floating over them, demanded that thoir cattle bo given up. Their demands being re fused they forcibly took possession and headed the stock for their respec tive ranches. Gov. William Guy Is at present in Ardmore, and Mr. Thompsoui thinks that the Indian milltlu, which was disbanded some woeko ago, will be at onco .organized and go into active service. When tbo trouble was feurod some weeks ago GovGuy had a conference with the cattlemen, who agreed to pay the $1 tax, whereupon the governor dispers ed the militia. As soon as that was done the cowmen violated their prom ise, and rode into Ardmore, armed with Winchesters and six-shooters, and compelled McLlsh to concede to their demauds. Mr. Thompson is of the opinion that blood will be shed, as Gov. Guy in a man who will not allow his territorial rights trampled upon, and nioro especially does ho feol em bittered against them from tho fact that the men with whom he hud con ferred uro.the same who ho openly violated tho Indian rights.
