REV. KITCHEN .39 39 43 45 26 22 22 23 23 .10 8 FIRST SERMON. Audience at Chr stian Church Heard Intere'stlJg Dllscourae. Rev. Kitchen pireached his Brst sermon last nlglit t< a deeply Interesteil and high'y deliglted audience at the Christian chuj-ch. The feeling! through out the servlqe was of the finest, and the sermon was J stirring and choice from start to flnish. Rev, Kitchen has a clear, good voice and a rapid, pleasing delivery, ' and a clear flow of thought wblcii carries his audience with him without effort on their part. The people were charmed last night. The subjact of the sermon was, •What Shall I Do With Jesus?" The preacher said !in part: "Every one! must decide this question. The tnie answer is that He is the Son of God; and because He is, should bo recognized and accepted as a personal Savior. Because He is the. Savior, lie is ojir leader, and should be foUiwed; He has authority and ahou'd be obeyed." The speaker strewed brigb, witty aiylngs through his sermoD-ln a telling way. At ono point he quoted two lines which gn: "There littl^ saloon, don't cry; youll bo a drug store by and by." He also quoted a «aloon Keeper in Oklahoma who said: "If the church people evergei together, theyllknock hell out of thl^igs." He said the only time Sam Jones was ever brought to a stand still {on tne platform, was when he once asked: "How would Jesus Christ look In a saloon?" A man called up from tho audience: "How would Jesus Christ look with a cigar in his hjouth?" The speaker scid that the only way to settle any moral question right was to settle what Christ thought alwut it The subject of the sermon tonight Id. "Rejectinp Christ" The peop!p cannot afford to miss these strong sermons. 10LA« MAHW JHtpMlMljl^ IW^tVKfkJ ETBimML BI6 GONte BEGilN 3 EIOHTEENTH A^^UAL SESSJION OPENED LN MUSKOOEE.

Nor. 19.—A jsalt arising cot of iaa eSbrt to consolidate the dtlea of PlttsMirs and Allecifny was deddedlbr tM aapraaiie coaft of tbs MMvkogec, Ok'H., Nov. 19.—The eighteenth annual session of, the Trans-MisslBSiiH^ Commercial . Con gress began In this ctty this morning. The delegates listened to an address of welcome and affected an organization for (he transaction of business. On Wednesday the congress will t >cgln the consideration of resolutions. Matters of vast Importance to the West are to be taken ut), including a parcels iKtst the deepening of water ways, the sale of public lands, the irrigation and drainage of submerged land. At the mom.'ng session former Governor Dav.'d R. Francis, of Missouri, welcomed Oklahoma Into the Unk;n. Chief Moly Tiger, of the Chetokee Ir.dlans, de'lvpred on address of welcome to the congress and spoke atalnst the removal of restrictions from the lands of the Are civilized tribes. He said in part: "All cltljcens of (his government have be?n and are encouraged to buy and hold lands, and wo are told that the best dtlsenship Is made up of the one hundred and sixty acre homeowners. In the light of this teaching and truth, why should my people be encouraged to sell their lands? ."The polished and educated man wUh Indian bk)od in his veins who ad- jvocates the removal of restrictions from the lands of my Ignorant people, apart from governmental relations. Is only reaching for gold to casejiis Itch Ing palms, and our posterity will r?- member him only for his avarice and bis treachery. Indians Can Care for Property. "I. together with many full-blooded Indians, am capable of caring for and prott'cting my property rights, but a decided majority of my people are moro'y crawling children in the white man's business world. The man In our midst who hero or elsewhere Intends for the removal of restrictions upon the lands of the full-blood Creek Indian knows In his heart that he Is Indifferent, insensible and dead to their best intorosts. And 8uch> contention has no more foundation to rest upon than a dnclaratlon from one, who, standing In Jho full noonday, points to the sun and assorts that It gives no light It Is a flpht between graed and conscience with this great movement as arbiter. . Lands Go- to Settlers. "Under the wise provisions of the law, the reclaimed regions are quickly turned over to bonaflde sett'ers, whose farms are restricted in area from 40 to 160 acres. Insuring compact farming communities. The land speculator has small chance under tbiB law which compels 'actual and continuous settlement and cultivation. There is no class of farmers who as n rule are more prosperous or receive a larger share of profits from the soil than the successful Irrigator. "The creation of tbonsands of homes out of what was otherwise a desert, in the midst of broa,d grazing areas, or near tbe great mining camps of the West, Insures a'stability to the commonwealth which cannot be obtained In any other way. • These homes serve as an offset to the roving pophlatlon on the grazing* lands and to the restless miners who make no permanent habitation."

Bradley who Is on trial for killing former Scnfitor Urown of Utah, took the witness stand today in her own defense. Her assumption of that position marked the dhnax of an already famous case. I The fact that the~ story was to be heard under oa^ had become geuerally known and the court room was crowded long before the Incoming of the court Many women were in the ttudicnce. After the resume of her life the witness told of being introduced to Senator Drown by his uncle and of afterwards coming to know him well while she was engaged In political work in Utah. The acquaintance had continued to ripen until 1898 but when Mrs. Bradley was asked to give a description of this relationship sie fell into tears and appeared for a time quite unable to proceed. When she did open her Hps no one heard h( r, except the stenographer who Interpieted her answer .to be "the acquaiitance grew Into, very Intimate relatons." "Tell the ury how you came to enter these re: atlons." This brought out a long narrative which was lo mingled with sobs that the )ttenogra pher was compelled to repeat the stoiy which is as follows: "The senator told me he was very unhappy anc wretched. 1 had told him that our re atlonship could only result In gri^ and sorrow and he replied that he would stay by me aU my life. Flnali} he came to me and said 'Darling we are going on together all through life.: You can't avoid me and I want you to have a son.' Finally after several months I consented." Mrs. Bradley said the son had been christened in Brown's presence and had been given the senator's name. He wanted to get a divorce and marry her but she would not consent' 40 break his home and had tried to break the relationship but he would hot have it so and woi^ld frequently come to her saying she was the only bright spot in his life. ' "Did you believe In his protestation of affection?" "I did not believe it possibio for any ono to ask a woman to have a child and not be fond of her," Mrs. Bradley replied. PAY IN SCRIPT AGAIN.

COMPLAlN-r,-FILIJD WITH C0» MEBCE COMMISSION MENTIONS BANANA ORDERS. Dealers Say Rate to lola Froai Nc» Orleaas Is More Than From New Orleans to Kansas City. , The Missouri and \ Kansas Shippers Association, of which The Olxby Fruit company and lola Fruit company art members, has In behalf of the fruit, dealers in Iota, Parsons and Hutchinson, Kansas, filed a protest with the interstate commerce commisslot against the rates on Ibanana shipments to these towns from; New Orleans and .Mobile. They allege that the rates are too high. Th« Shippers' assoda- tlon Is endeavoring not only to reducs the rate for future ahlpmenta but airo to collect |64 overcharge for every car that has been shipped Into lols In the last year. If the associatloa is successful in making the collection It will mean a Satn of many hundreds of dollars to the lola fruit dealers, a* many car loads are shipped to thl» point. I The frnit men in lola. Parsons ami Hutchinson have asked the Shippers as Boclatlon to assist In getting a lowet rate here and the complaint to the IntersUte Commerce Commission is the result A comparison of tbe rates made bj the railroad companies from New 0^ leans and Mobile tb other points 1$ very interesting. For InStatK:o th| rate from New Orleans to Kansas City is 64 cents a hundred pounds while ts lola. which is not as far from New Orleans as Kansas City, the rate is Tf cents a hundred pounds. Also rates into some of tbe lows towns, which are a greater ^istancs from the shipping point than Kansai City, the rates are lower than to Kan* sas City. The Frisco is the only line coming from the banana market into this seo tlon and all towns jilong the Frisce line arc given a better rate. The rats to Fort Scott and Kansas .City, botk of which are Frisco towns, is tlit awate. lola must pay tbe Frisco rats to Fort Scott and also, the local rat« of the Missouri Pacific from FOR.
