got oveb the line. A careful estimate by a reporter who was on the border last night is that within a radius of five miles from the border entrance on the Ponca trail fully five hundred men were at least a mile over the line. Wire fences divide the strip from Oklahoma; The men did not know the fence was , the dividing line, or if they did, heeded it not No soldiers were there to dispute their entrance or tell where the line was. Without let or hindrance a great number of people went into Oklahoma as early as Saturday night A cattleman at Bed Bock said last night that as he came through Oklahoma from Galveston he counted over 100 in the bushes along through Oklahoma. -r
