' It is tbe prevailing opinion of all thos who hare visited Oklahoma that the capital city of that conntry will be located near what is now Norman, a point eight miles noitli of rurcell, and between Tur-eell and Oklahoma station. Here is where the old Atlantic & Pacific, now the 'Frisco railroad, crosses the Santa I e, and where the prospective Rock Island route .will cross. To Messrs. John Calhoun" and II. B.

A gentleman just in from Oklahoma ays that immense prairie fires have been raging for the past week in the Oklahoma country between Purcell and Oklahoma station. The ky is black with smoke and the air is filled with Hying cinders. The whole country is being burned up and il is a f Jet which a visit will easily demonstrate that the eattla men will have very poor picking for their herds thu season. Whether it is the work of tbe boomers or not, he w4 unprepared to state. Last Tuesday afternoon a eow-boy by the name of Al Walker, from Walker's raaeb, I- T-, while under the influence of Joint water" went to the rooms of Mrs. J. B. Carson, is the second story of the Hooghton block. ard finding no one in but the lady and her little daughter, be nsed insulting language, and Mrs. Carson toid blot to leave the room, but he refused to go and she seat for her husband who soon arrived and Bade Walker skip. When Walker started down atuira he lost his footing and fell to the stone, pavement, some twenty teet below. He was picked up and takeu into Juliiw Bchrend's clothing store where Vr. Wolfe and Aeker dressed bis wounds and he was then removed to tbe Gladstone hotel. He was badly bruised about the face and neck, and otherwise quite seriously injured. At the present writing he is rapidly improving, and will probably soon recover. Purcell, Indian Territory, Is evidently getting to be a pretty tough place. A gentleman -who recently visited that "town says: Purcell is youag but not behind tbe times. She has her hell's half acre as well as any other well regulated place. This undesirable locality is down at the foot of the bluff near the depot. There is not a building in this portion of the town that U not bullet riddled and does not show the ear marks of a thoroughly western"bad town." The dances given here ars well attended and every one in full dreds. I was present at one. The principal require ments are high topped boots, belts, cartridges, six-shooters, high broad brimmed hats and a general air of western freedom. Tbe girls are daisies and high kicke rs. This is only tbe tough class. Purcell has some very nice ladies and many gentlemen. It abo has its bad citizens as well. At one of its dances not long ago, a drug was administered to all present which m.vle them, men and women conduct themselves wore like wild beasts than civilized people. The details are too disgusting for fruUitaUon. The dance, however, did not cake oiaea in toe town of Purcell, bat ia Ct eoantry bejosi DISTINGUISHED VISITORS. On Monday night Hon. C. II. Mausur, M. C accompanied by his aou C. W. Mausur, Hon. J. C. Jamison, Adjutant general of the Mate tf Missouri, and 11. 11. Isham, o Coffeyville, Kan., arrived iu Arkansas City on their way to Oklahoma City aad other portions of the Indian Territory. Congressman Mansur is a member of the House committee on Indian Affairs and has come to this seclioii to leant from personal observation the into feeling that exists among the peopie of the border in regard to the opeutug of Oklahoma. He has beeu a warm trieud of the Oklahoma uioveuieut auj ably advocated its iiu-nied.a'o opening duriug the reeeut con- greaMonai controversy, but so many eou- llicliug reports concerning the wishes of Uie people fte in circulation in .Washington, that he dcteriituicd to find out the truth by a personal visit to southern Kansas ami the Oklahoma domain. The dny following his arrival here h was joined by Judgd Calloway, of Fort Scott, chair man ol iiw Democratic Slate Central com mittee of Kansas, and together they left for iur. Oklauoiua couutry. Today (Thurs day I they will return to this city and to- nigi.t a rousing Oklahoma meeting will he held at which both of the distinguished gentlemen will speak. Congressman Man sur is enthusiastic uuon the Oklahoma question and wilt urge upon l'resid-jnt Harrison the importance of an immediate proclamation opening this country to settlement. We regret that we go to press to early to give a report of his speech. FIRE! FiREU At about - o'clock last Wednesday morn ing we were awakened from peaceful slumber by the shrill cry of a woman, and upon going to the door discovered that the residence of Jim McMillen, the night policeman, ou the corner of Spruce and h street was on lire. We hastened to the scene of the conilagration and found Mrs. McMillrii and her two little children al most suffocated in smoke. We sent them to our residence and proceeded to remove the household goods, and in a few minutes after neighbors were on hand and the house was soon cleared of its effects. When the tire company arrived the flames bad gained considerable headway and the house was pretty badly demolished before they were extinguished. It is uot known bow the fire originated, but it is thought to have been the work of an incendiary, as there had been no fire in the house since early in the evening before, and as the fire was first discovered iu the cellar it is sup posed that some cowardly villian entered by the way of an outside bulk-head and set fire to some wood which was piled up against the wall. Mr. McMillen is a faithful officer, and has made many enemies among the toughs of the city, who no doubt took this method of revenge. It was a cowardly .villiansttct, and we hope that the city authorities will sii't the matter to the bottom, and should the human viper be captured we trust the law will be meat- ed out to him in its fullest measure. A 6 AO ONE. An innocent appearing youth jailed on a serious charge. Capt. Siverd came in from Coffeyville Saturday evening with Milton Andrews, and placed him in the county jail to answer to tbe charge of rape. In 1881 Marina Chatfield died in Beaver township. He left a good farm, considerable stock and a wife and family. In 1885. Mrs. Chatfield hir'-d Milt Audrews as a farm hand. In December last the old lady-had an illegitimate child, and died as a le- sult. The neighbors were wild with indignation and told Andrews if he didn't take the child and put it in good hands they would swing him to a cottouwood limb. Milt brought the child to town and got parties to take care for it. About this time it was discovered that Viola Chatfield, a 11-vear-old-daughter of the women whose death had produced such a sensation, was found to be in a de- icate condition. At tau. tbe girl's uncle, M. Robinson, who 'lives iu Sumner county, determined to put the -young se- t'ueer through. Accordingly he brought Viola to Wiufield and put her in good hands, and swore out a warrant for Andrews' arrest. It was put into the hands of Capt. Siverd on January L'dth, but when he went to serve it, young Andrews had skipped. The Captain heard of him iu Missouri, and made a fruitless trip. East week the Captain, through a pro cess best known to himself, learned thai Andrews was working on the Wagner extension of the M. P. at Coffeyville. Deputy Sheriff Clifford, of Moutgomerj't was sent a description with orders to take Andrews in, which was doue. The uncle discovered that the mortgage had been allowed to eat up the Chatfield farm, most of the ttock had been sold and everything had gone to the deyil. Milt Andrews is 23 years did and has a very unsophisticated look. He is a brother of Bob Audrews, who has just been released from a year in the pen for forgery. The parents of these boys live in Vernon township and are well respected. "Viola is now being cared for by a family in Winfield. She is quite a pretty girl. Under the law making the "age of consent' IS years, the charge against Andrews is rape. If the facts, as supposed to exist, are proven, he will have cbauce for bitter repentance. Winfield Courier. GEM. JAMES B. WEAVER, Gen. James B. Weaver, ihe great Iowa statesman who caused the sensational deadlock in congress a few weeks ago,aud who finally succeeded in forcing the house to a rote upon the Springer bill, spent a few hours in this city on Wednesday, while on his way to Oklahoma City and Ft. Reno. Eike Congressman Mansur, Gen. Weaver is on a tour of inspection of tie Oklahoma country. During his brief stay in the city he was the cynosure of all eyes and was constantly beseiged by a large crowd of admirers who were profuse in thanks and congratulations for the magnificent victory he had achieved in behalf of the people- Gen. Weaver expects to return to this city in about a week and will probably remain here a day or two, ami our people should see to it that be is accorded a grand, reception.

Hunters, wood-choppers and generally all intruders will be expelled from Oklahoma ami the Cherokee Strip, and prevented from entering therein. Any movement of 'boomers'' will be promptly reported to the commanding oliicer of this post. In the performance of this duty, the troop commander will be guided by instructions and information given iu cir. 2 sec. "8! dept. Mo. 2. Lieut.

The couutry in the neighborhood of the following named localities will receive particular attention: Oklahoma 'Station, Horinger, Council Grove, Twelve Mile Bottom, Ten Mile Bottom, Crutchs Creek, Head of Little River, Deer Fork. All intruders into Oklahoma will be removed therefrom. Lieut. Carson will take for his guide cir. 2, ser. '89, dept. Mo. The circular referred to in the order is as follows: . Headquarters Department of the Mo., Ft. Leaven w oktu, Ks. J an, 19, '89. circular xo. 2. The following memoranda of laws and instructions relating to the action of troops operating in the Indian country, are published for the Information and guidance of all concerned: I. The military to act by direction of the president under sections 'IH'o, 2150 and 2131, revised statutes. 'Section 2150 authorizes the president fb direct the military force to be employed in the removal of persons found in the. Indian territory contrary to law. Sec. 2150. Troops are employed as fol-lowo: Apprehending persons found violating the laws, conveying thenr from Indian territory by most convenient and safe route to nearest civil authority; examination and seizure of stores, etc., authorized by law; preventing introduction of persons and property contrary to law; destroying distilleries. Where grounds for criminal or civil proceedings exist it is the duty of officers to take immediate steps to bring the cases befoie the nearest tribunal having jurisdiction. Sec 2151. Persons arrested under 2150 will not be held over five days after arrest and before removal, and will be treated with all the humanity and kindness which circumstances permit. Arrests are generally made while acting in co-operation with ludiau agents, in response to s pacific instructions, the milli-tary giving the agents such general lawful assistance as they may require, or special assistance in each case. The seizure authorized by section 21 10 is, however, by law independent of co-operation, but for the sake of harmony co-operation should be had where practicable. Arrests iu Oklahoma and in the Cherokee Strip are made iu accordance with the general instructions to prevent Intrusion iuto the ludian country, which instructions continue iu force uutil revoked lj proper au thority. - II. The persons arrested uiy be divided iuto three classes as follows, according to the di.qositiu to be madu of them by the military: First Intruders not vi dating any other Indian intercourse law. Second Those who commit offenses which subject them to hues or forfeitures only. Third Persons found committing offenses which rendered them liable, to imprisonment. first. Offenders of the first class will, be rc-uiovad beyond'the line. From the decision of the district court of the western district of Arkansas in 1879, and the recent decision of the attorney general, it seems that section C383 It, S. relating to the cutting of timber, does not apply to theluased Cherokee lands. Timber cutters will be removed as intruders and will not be allowed to take tHe timber with them. Care will be taken to Insure the preservation of evidence in each case. Section 2152, R. S providing for the assistance of the military to the Indian agents in arresting offending ludians or other persons fleeing, from justice into the territory, does not strictly come under the subject of these memoranda. The latter are arrested, however, as intruders. As to assisting in the arrest of -ludians the commanding officers must judge under paragraph boii, army regulations. StCO.VII. Under the second class will be consider ed all cases arising under the following sections of the revised statutes: 21 11. Sending seditious messages to any Indian nation, tribe, eta. 2112. Carrying the loregoiug. 2113. Alienating (or attempting to I the confidence of any Indian or Indians from the government. 2116. Attempting, except under author ity of the United States, to negotiate with Indians for lands. 2117. Driving stock to feed on Indian lands without consent of tribe. Stock is driven off Indians lands. Military does not hold and care for stock, neither it responsible lor safe delivery to owners. Evidence of number of head should be preserved. J 2118. Settling on or surveying, or at tempting to survey, lands belonging to the Indians. , 2133. Attempting to trade without a license. I All merchandise offered for sale or found in possession of persons arrested to be seized.J - ' 2131. Foreigners, ( those not naturalized in the United States) found in tho Indian Territory without a passport from the department of the interior, Indian buiouu or uenrest post commander. 133. Purchasing or receiving from In dians, articles commonly used in hunting, husbandry, cooking utensils and clothing, except skins or furs. 2137. Hunting or trapping, or taking and destroying peltries or game, except for subsistence while iu the Indian country. All trans, guns aud ammunition iu pos session of persons for this purpose and all peltries so taken are seized. 2U8. Persons once removed returning. It seems that the United States circuit court commissioner has no jurisdiction over offenders ol the secoud class. Civil proceedings are brought by the Lulled States district-attorney before the district court. In aggravated cases request will be made by telegraph to these headquarters for authority to take persons arrested to place of meeting of district court having jurisdiction (see article iv.,1 or, if circum stances require, such p csons will, when practicable, be so .Conveyed and immediate report made of the case. Otherw ise the person arrested will be set at liberty at the I'ue and the United States attorney promptly advised of all the circumstances. In this case goods, etc., seized as author ized by law should be held for such a time as may be necessary to turn them over to the proper civil officer -the neatest United States marshal, if he will receive the property and receipt for same, otherwise await the disposition directed by the court or dia- trict attorney iu each case. TII1KH. Under the third class will be considered all offenses committed in violation of the following sections of the revised statutes: 2138. Driving or removing cattle from the lndan country for the purpose of trade or commerce, without authority of the sec retary of war, connected with supply of troops. (The permission to drive through the territory over authorized trails are given by common consent aud are strictly construed. The privilege is also -entitled to protection from the troops.) 2l;W. Selling, giving, etc., to Indians (or introducing or attempting to) any spirituous liquors or wine. This includes Indians as well as whiles. 2110. Searches should be made when there is good reasons to suspect such introduction. The liquor will be taken and destroyed, the boats, trains, wagons and sleds, used in conveying the same, and also the goods, packages aud peltries of the persons arrested, should be taken with him and turned over to the commissioner. 2if 1. Setting up or continuing distillery. 2H2. Assault by white, or Indian on white, w ith intent to kill or maim. 21i;j. Arson. 2H4. Depredation ou mails. . ! 2145. tuber crimes. Third The law s authorizing the residence of employes of railroads, while so engaged, upon the right of way should be strictly constructed and care be taken that intruders taking advantage of these laws do not escap;; expulsion. .Fourth The follow ing is the subdivision as to jurisdiction of United States district courts in the Indian territory: All north of the Canadian river and east of the state of Texas aud the 100th meridian not set apart and occupied by Cherokee, Creek aud Seminole Indians.
