President Harrison isssued his Proc lamation today, opening the famous Oklahoma territory for settlement under the homestead lawa. The date of opening is fixed at noon April 22d The government reserves an acre of land near Guthrie, in the X. W. qr. 9 16, north of range 2-W., on the line of the Atchison R. R. The government also reserves aa acre in the 8. E. qr. of X. W. qr. section 13, Tp 16, X. R. 7 W., about Kingfisher Station, on the projected line of the R. I. R. 11. Guthrie is 90 miles south of Arkan- City, 21 miles north of Oklahoma. Kingfisher is on the Red Fork of the Arkansas river. These reservations are probably for location of land offices. The Proclamation was received with intense enthusiasm by the thou sands waiting on tlie borders to take up lands. We are iudebted to Direcror E. B. Purcell for the above particulars, received by him by wire this afternoon just as we go to press. Hurrah for Harrison ! Oklahoma will be opened April 22d. The Democratic Senators are acting very geuerously toward the new President. Col. Hallowell doubtless thinks it Is rough that be can not have the office he wanted, and that another Kansan who wa? not asking for anything, should have the place. It is rough, " Prince Hal!" We hoped you would make it. First Anneal Graduates' Examination in Riley County, Kansas. 1st.
