The araout of money received by ones for the oil he has produced and' sold from Sarah Rector's lease in Creek county. It is alleged that Jones has sold $1,250,000 worth of oil from the Rector lease and the additional $320,000 asked in the suit is claimed because it is asserted that the girl could have disposed of her lease at a bonus in that amount if Jones had not been operating on it. Sweeney's petition will be argued September 27, before Judge Leahy, of Musko&ee, and if he is appointed guar* dian, or* even if Porter's appointment held* illegal, it will have an important bearing on the Creek county case; Sarah Rector is the richest Negro girl in the world, agd Uvea in thiftv Pty.
