OKLAHOMA WINS BOUNDARY SUIT (Continued from page one) waters of tho river. Had the cen. ter of the river been held to be the State line as Texas claimed, the oil wells in operation would have been thrown into Texas. While the decision settles a ques tion in controversy, the fixture of the boundary line by no means ends litigation regarding Red River pro perty, for hundreds of separate cases are expected to be tiled in United States Courts. The next Issue in the litigation to determine Just where the bed of the river wus in 1819. Texas contends that It was where it is now. Okla homa claims that in 1819 the bed of the river was some place south 6f the present bed or against what Is now known as "The Bluffs." The Federal Government, shares Oklaho ma's contention. Should this issue be decided in favor of Oklahomn, this State will gain a little new ter ritory south of what Is now the river channel.

Sheep and lambs were quoted steady. Following Monday's slow trade and decline In prices the cattle market today showed a material improv ment In tone with prices throng to 25 cents higher. Receipts for the two days included a smaller per. cent of fat cattle, and a larger per cent or stockers and feeders than In proceeding weeks and killers are not finding the runs burdensome.
