E Under the above heading the New Tork "World of February 10th, contains an editorial, of -which the following are a lew extracts: "Physicians and unprofessional men of sense agree that if people would take a little of the pains to prevent disease that they do to have it cured that the civilized world would be much less like a vast hospital than it is now. But the idea of a regular and stated physical examination, even of persons who are apparently well, is an excellent one. The approaches of pul monary complaints, kidney troubles. and many of the other ilia that flesh is heir to are so insidiouB as not to be pp- purens 10 lueir victim.

Galveston (Tex.) News, April 2nd. During the recent Mardi Gras cele bration at New Orleans, a lady from Galveston, while taking in the carnival, was not forgetful of the fact that it was near the time for the March drawing of the ljouiHiana btate Liottery, and re membering that she was then in for tune's very household, the home of the lottery company, she invested $1 in a lottery ticket, which she brought back to Galveston, almost forgetting its pos session among her ninny pleasant recol lections of the trip. The drawing came, and it was not until several days after that she bethought herself of her ticket. and having her attention directed to the matter she, upon examination, discov ered that she held one-twentieth of tick et No. 10,420, which drew the second capital prize of $100,000, thus entitling her to $5,000. The ticket was prompt ly cashed through the banking house of Adoue & Liobit of this city, being paid over to Mr. Nichols as the rep.esenta. tive of the fortunate lady.

Condensed for the Convenience of Hurried Readers. General Merritt's instructions ptBsTIcally make him military governor of Oklahoma. Word was rriven out Fridav that the land offices in Oklahoma would not be opened for business until Tuesday, Zid. Small parties are paying big fees to 'euides" nartlv contingent upon their beins located upon good claims. The townsite Question is all in confusion, as en rv ore-concocted scheme has been re jected by the land offices. Oklahoma Harry Hill is missinix. His dog was found shot dead, near FurcelL A large reward is offered for bis discovery. A syndicate has bouulit 63.000 acres of land thirty miles from I hattanooga, Tenn., and will develop the territory on a grtna scale.

Martin is being pressed for annointinent to till vacancy on the interstate commerce commission. The salary is $7,500 a year. A long lino of settlers slept in their tracks Monday night, iu tho line formed at the Guthrie lnmt office, determined not to lose their rights in the line. There is great suffering for water nmong the multitude at Guthrie, as no wells hav6 been dug, and the v. at jr in the stream there is not bt for drinking. The specific charges against Boulanger are corrupting tho army, malversation in the war office as regards the handling of funds, and making a seditious speech. Hanna Kattcrsbv. Barnuin s fat wamon. died iat week, and now her husband ot thirty. years, Barnuin s living skeleton, .1 ohn Bat-tersby is dying. She weighed 700 pounds and lett an estate valued at f lo.uuo. The "press car" was hitched to the first train out of Arkansas City, and had ssver.ty passengers on it. From the three points. Caldwell, Hunne- well and Arkansas City, there were from twenty to th riy thousand who went to Ok- 1 ihoma by the old trails. These were fol lowed by the numerous tram loads by rail. Two. and probably four clerks, who are informed as to the detailed work of a local land office, have been sent by the general land office to Guthrie and Kingfisher station in Oklahoma, to assist the local land ofliecrr. The basis of the last ruling excluding whisky from Oklahoma, is that it is surrounded by "Indian country," nnd the linuor cannot reach there without passing through such prohibited territory. A good horse, supposed to bo extra fast. brought 500 at l'urcell. It was bought by a townsite manager who wanted to reach a certain location iirst. There was great de mand for fast horses. At Kansas City Union depot the boon-er crowds were so great that it was almost possible to start a regular train hlled with parties holding local tickets. Special trains followed immediately. A rumor by tho way of Fort Smith says that a coach on the southern border of Okla homa, on the banks of the Canadian river, had been robbed its, passengers held as pris oners, nnd the coach burned. There are combinations forming among the Oklahoma emigrants, with mutual agree ment that they will stand by each other in occupying claims on the "i lutlet" alter fail ing to get claims on the lands opened for settlement. An attempt was made to burn tho Santa Fe freight depot at Wichita. It was frustrated by the night watchman. The entire end of the building was saturated with coal oil end a match touched. 1 he loss is light. There is no clue to the incendiaries. A nartv of thirty boomers from Texas. Louisiana and other southern states, who had trespassed on Oklahoma lands, have taken prisoners by deputy marshals after a fight, in which one marshal and seven roughs were wounded; two ot tho latter probably fatally hurt. An attempt to set fire to the United States JNational bank block at Atchison was discov ered just in time. The arrangements for the fire had been enref all y made, and there would have been little chance of saving the build ing had the night watchman not discovered it as he cud. Most of the lots of Guthrie proper had D -en claimed prior to noon ot tho ssna. Later comers are determined that these claims ahull be debarred under the law. The early claimants are said to include depufy marsh i's and others who were there under official permits. Reuben Darden and Thomas Dansbv. two of the men convicted by the United States circuit court, at Little Rock, Ark., for vio lating the election laws at the election last November, have I teen sentenced by Jul ire Brewer, the first named to fire years in the penitentiary and the last to pay a line of $500. The ense of N". B. Hughes, for embezzle ment, has been dismissed in the Shawnee county district court on motion of the county attorney, who stated that a case could not be made against Dr. Hughes in the face of the statement made by Airs. JVlowrey, the complaining witness, that she gave the money to Dr. Hughes to me upon his own discretion, in procuring the pardon of her son. Anloldecout, Captain Jack Crawford, says: The new comers outnumber the old boom ers ten to one, and will be as well prepared to defend themselves as American citizens. and all tho killing that will take place will be the slaughter of a few outlaws from the border who have been enabled to terrorize a few Dfeoi le m some scantily settled coun try, but who will get killed off in Oklahoma as quick aa they turn up." : The president made the following appoint ments April 1!': Solon AV.

Work on tho plant will begin within thirty days. -The necessary frogs and switch-throw for tho sugar mill switch and part of the track wero put in nnd laid this week. Rain and lack of material has retarded the work somewhat. Osborne Journal: City Clerk H. C. Mills received the gratifying intelligence from Washington, on tho 5th inst., that hereafter he would receive a pension of $30 per month, and is an increase of 150 per cent. This is what cheers the old . soldier who fought, bled and starved for his country. Florence Herald: The bidding for the erection of a two-story stone build ing with a basement on the county farm in Wilson township has been let by the county commissioners. There were nine bidders, the lowest, which secured the contract, was S5,969. We under stand that work will begin at once. Liberal Chronicle: The building of Mrs. J. K. Tyler, on Second street, proved to be on fire, and being very dry, burned to tho ground. Tho cause of tho fire is unknown. The wind being in the southeast probably saved tho en tire business portion of our city, as we have no means, whatever, of fighting the fiery element. Hutchinson Democrat; A vagabond has been hanging around the north part of the city for some days, frightening the ladies in several localities. He ac costed Mrs. Shields on west Seventh street, who went for him courageonsly with a hoe. He concluded he had tack led the wrong party and left.

Attica Advocate : The township elec tion to vote aid to the sugar mill, at tracted very little attention as it was a foregone conclusion that the bonds would carry almost unanimously, hence the light vote 114 for and 4 against. The farmers were too busy to attend the election in any great . numbers, but those who did vote, voted for the proposition. Concordia Daylight: J. E.

This lat eral is thirty feet wide and has a water ing capacity of over 30,000 acres. North Finney is indeed a network of laterals from the Amazon. A Marion special: Tho rain was one of the heaviest which has visited this county for several years. It is worth thousands of dollars to this connty. The winter wheat crop is about the largest this county has ever had and it was never in better condition. It will bo a big year for the farmers. The rain extended throughout the western part of the state. Cheney Blade: Over, three tons of butter were made at the Cheney Creamery during the month of March, which would supply about 1,200 families during the month, and those who furnish the milk for the creamery didn't do without bntter on their table, either.

McPhersou Republican : Mr. Black- ler informs us that the dwelling house on his farm in Lone Tree township was Diown over. It rolled over three times, and the occupant says that sometimes he was on tho floor and sometimes on the roof. It was moved about a hun- aret yards and stands there bottom up. It is a story and a half high, but is not materially damaged. It will be set up in its old place. Burlingame Democrat: The knitting factory is crowding work to its utmost capacity. Thirty-six hands are now employed, and the force is being in creased weekly. Fay day the pay roll amounted to $480. There seems to be an increasing demand for the goods wherever they have been introduced and in order to supply the demand, addition al machinery and an increased force will be required. Ma nkato J acksonia n : Thomas Kn i ght. geologist and mining engineer of Kan sas City, was here looking up the coal question. He examined the prospects on JJir.

Ingalls Union: Buffalo tracks, of all sizes, may be viewed by all who will take the trouble to visit the spot where the canal waste gate has just been put in. They were about four feet under ground, being brought to light by wa ter washing the loose sand and gravel from over them, the imprint of the hoofs still showing very plainly, where they were made in the hard, gumbo soil. Atchison tjnampion: There is un nsua' activity in the Central Branch shops at present, as there is likely to be all summer. About one hundred and twen'.y-five men are at present employed there, with the prospect of a consider able increase in the near future.

All the work of the Central Branch, the Jopl n and cmotopa branches or the Missouri Pacific is now done in these shops. STOCK AND FARM. "orence Herald: Considerable corn has been planted. We have interviewed a number of farmers in relation to the matter. Some have already put in as much as one hundred acres of this grain. Liberal Chronicle: W. Bell, of Meado, came hero for the purpose of contract ing with tho farmers, tho amount of cane his company desires, to operate the extonsive sugar plant to be located in this citv. Terry Eye: P. D. Terry is negoti ating for tho establishment of a horse- raising stock farm on a large scalo for this point. May his plans mature is onr hearty wish, for such a country for horses never was built before or since the formation of North Finney. Arlington Enterprise: Wm. Cecil is a little ahead on corn of anyone we have heard of. He has 210 acres plant ed, 60 of which is large enough to culti vate, and he commenced on it Monday, Aprd 15. How does this strike our eastern friends who are just getting their oats sown? Lyons Tribune: Every peach tree, from two feet high upwards, is covered from sprouts to top with a burden of bloseoms. In 1881, whon peaches yielded such a crop in this county, the conditions were far from as favorable as at present, and if nothing happens the growing fruit there will be a large yield. tjoncordia Jbmpire: A larger crop will be planted in Cloud county this year than ever before. Tho winter was very mild, stock came through in the best of shape and never before looked so well in tho spring. The wheat pre sents an excellent appearance and the warm rains have started the grass well already. Prospects could not be better at this season and there is a confidence among tho farmers that they will have excellent crops. There was a demand for all the farms offered for rent. If there is a failure this year the farmer? will not be to blame. Horace Champion : It would be possible for Greeley county to be placed in a better condition than it is at pres ent. The fine rains of the past few days have thoroughly soaked the ground to a great depth. Wheat, oats and rye are looking very fine and give promise of an abundant yield. Already a very large acreage has been planted to corn, millet, sor ghum, potatoes, etc. Our farmers all feel jubilant over the bright prospects and are determined that it shall not be their fault if a good crop is not raised. Atchison Champion: As an illustra tion of what may be done in Kansas by industry, prudence and good manage ment, may be cited m the fact of a young Englishman, who, five years ago, bought a farm in Atchison county for 4,700, on credit, and who to-day, is en tirely out or debt, with his farm in a high state of cultivation, with a good house, barn, fences, stock, surrounded by all of the comforts and not a few of the luxuries of life, with money on in terest besides. And this is only one in stance of a number that might be given. Marion Record: We are indebted to Mr. J. E. Gilbert, of Lincolnville, for a fine mess ot German carp from his arti ficial pond. Mr. Gilbert is making a fine success of these fish. In two years some of them have grown to weigh sev en pounds. The samples sent us were large, and we pronounce them a very good quality of nsix. Our farmer friends ought to pay a visit to Mr. Orilbert s place, and investigate this matter. There might be many fine fish ponds made in this county, furnishing food and sport for the family, if farmers would only think so. Arlington Enterprise: A. J. Judy, of Langdon, met with a serious accident which will probably deprive him of the use of a-fine team this season, tie had driven to the field to burn off some stubble ground, and unhitched the horses and tied them to the wagon, after which ho went off some distance and started the fire. A moment after ig niting the grass the wind suddenly changed and a strong trust drove the flames directly toward the team, and reached them before they could bo re leased. The fire swept under them, burning their legs and body in a fright ful manner. They wiU ne ot run; little use for eome time. QUESTION. rnuulDent Men and ro'itlclans of the Southern States Exp:e s Their Opinions Concerning It Xe y Inter, estiug Heading. Fair Portrayal of S-corlment on the Oreat Question of the outh The Kace Question as Held and A nnuunced. Philadelphia, April 22. Tho Enquirer publishes the following responses from leaders in tho southern states to these questions: First What is the southern question? Second How should it be met to produce the greatest good to the south? The idea of the Enquirer was to obtain the real views of the southern leaders upon a subject which is becoming very prominent. The responses nearly all voice the same een-timent: that the race problem is the great one to be solved, and that the south should be allowed to manage her own affairs without interference. Following is a brief summary of some of the opinions: Governor Richardson, of South Carolina, says: "The southern question is the race problem: shall the African or Caucasian predominate? The solution is in the strict avoidance by the general government ot any distinctly southern policy and leaving to the states themselves the management of their own domestic affans." Governor Fitzhue"h Lee. of Virginia, savs: "Two distinct races are wrestling With each other for political supremacy. The question is, therefore, whether Ihe southern states and cities shall be retained in the hands of the white men, or whether there shall be war of races. The prosperity of berth races and that of the states in which they live demands that each state should be allowed to control its own internal affairs without fed eral interference, and to exercise those rights preserved with the great care to the states by the representatives of these states who framed the constitution in the city of Phila- aeipiua over luo years ago. Governor Buckner, of Kentucky, protests that there is no such Question. The so- called southern question seems to be a hot bed plant of nortnern growth an exotic which will not nourish in southern soil' Such unpatriotic sectional agitations, whether originating in the north or south. should not be encouraged by the people of any section, and ttritj injury resulting from such aeitations to the whole countrv would be reduced to a minimum if the people of each state would continue to attend to their own affairs in accordance with their local institutions, and unite in supporting the general government in its just exercise ox all its legitimate powers. A. J. Russell, superintendent of public in struction of Florida, says, "aa the question is discussed in the republican journals, he is led to suppose that some special legislation is to be inflicted on the south, but the south has no lear. it th3 question means, how can the southern neonle be made reDublican. it cannot be done. The truth is the so-called southern question can best be answered by letting the south alone in its enjoyment of her constitutional rights." Oscar H. Cooper, superintendent of public instruction ot Texas, says: "The difficulty of the adjustment of the races are being met ana overcome ty common sense. T. Miller, attorney general of Mississippi, says that "tne contrast between the negro and white governments has been so decid edly in favor of the latter that the white people are determined there shall be no re turn to the former; indeed, a military despotism would be preferred. If our political dominion at home is at all questionable in its rightfulness in its origin, let it be remem bered that we view government here as matter ot business, not glory, and we pro test against interference, because we know that our state affairs are managed in the interest of all. We say to the republi cans, take your new states and keep control of the government if you choose; keep up a scheme of taxation revolting to justice and oppressive upon the agricultural sections and we will submit cheerfully, but don't set ignorance and vice to rule over the south. Lastly, when interest and judgment instead of passion and prejudice shall con trol the southern negro, when there shall be a home of opinion among them, the question will be settled. The white people are solid because the negroes were solid against them. The state treasurer of Arkansas, W. E. Woodruff, thinks "the question can be solved by remitting to the states chiefly affected, aU local subjects, the supreme court of the United States being the iinal arbiter." George M. Adams, secretary of state of Kentucky, says: "I am ono of those who believe in the right of the people to regulate their own attairs m their own way. bolomon .f aimer, superintendent of edu cation of Alabama, thinks "the south will work out the solution if loft free to do so." Lieutenant Governor Maulding. of South Carolina, says: "The federal government can help the south by apointing to office men of character and capacity, by dealing generously in the matter of her internal improvements, and by refunding to her people the cotton tax, so unjustly collected from them. In other words, I say let the south alone. Reservations in Oklahoma. Washington, D. C, April 23. Secretary Noble, in a letter to the president, recom mended the establishment by executive proc lamation of certain reservations in Oklahoma. Following is the secretary's letter: Depabtment of the Interior. Washing ton. To the Puesident, Sib: It has been ascertained that the acre of land desired for government use and control in the presi dent's proclamation of March 23, 1889, and described as follows: One aero of land in square form in the northwest corner of sec tion 9, in township 2b north, ransre 2 west of tne Indian meridian, m the Indian territory. is found not to be suitable for the purpose intended. "It is, therefore, recommended that said tract be relinnuished and made subject to disposal as other lands embraced in said proclamation recording to the of March a. 188i), and that the following tract be reserved for government use and control in lieu there of: One acre of land in square in the northwest corner of northeast quarter of southeast quarter of section 8, township lli, north of range 2, west of the Indian meridian, Indian territory. "In addition to said reservation it is represented by the proper military authorities that a reservation should be made of the following described tract: The southeas-t quarter of Sf'ction 31. township 12, north of range 3, west cf the Indian meridian, in the Indian territory, for military purposes, and the Teservat'on thereof from a settlement filing is recommended accordingly. I have the honer to be, very resiiectfully, John- W. Noble, Secretary. Upon this letter the president made the following endorsement: "Executive Mansion. Tho within recom mendations are approved. The relinquishment of the first mentioned tract and the reservation of tho other tracts as therein proposed are made and proclaimed accord ingly. The secretary of the interior will cause the eame to be noted in the general land office. Benjamin Hakbison. Oklahoma Lnnd Frauds, Washington, D. C, April 23. The general land officials have information that persons will attempt to evade the law of homestead entry in Oklahoma. Ths method is to procure from soldiers a declaratory statement, which will operate to reserve the lands for six months. They also obtain from the soldier at the same time a relinquishment of his rights thereunder. Tho sharpers may then be able at any time within six months to sell theirclaims to persons desiring homes, and by filing the relinquishment the pur chaser obtains a preferred right in the land located. Every possible effort will be made by the land officials to prevent the consum mation of these frauds, and when found the guilty parties will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for perjury. The law on this subject permits soldiers to make their entries through attorneys, who, however, must swear that they have no personal interest in the claims, and the filings are not made with a view to relinquishing the claim. o ILlqnor in Oklahoma. Leavenwokth, Kan., April 22. Hon. N. F. Acres, collector of internal revenue for the district of Kansas, which includes the Indian territory, is in receipt of the following instructions from Hon. John W. Mason, commissioner of internal revenue, which settles the matter regarding the sale of liquor in Oklahoma and corrects the statements given out in the Associated Press dispatches, which were entirely incorrect: To Nelson F. Acres, Collector Internal Revenue, Xjeavonwortn, nan. Washington, D. C. Arrangements are made to give you a sufficient force for any work that may be necessary to prevent the sale of liquors in Oklahoma. Issue no spec ial tax stamps tor Oklahoma. John W. Mason, Commissioner. N. F. Acres, Collector, Leavenworth, Kan. Washington, D. C Send deputies as de sired to prevent infractions of the law in Oklahoma. Issue no stamps to liquor deal ers intending to do business there. Ihe aovernment will pot Deiiit the sale of SOUTHERN liquor there. Revenue Agent Clark will assist you in preventing violations. John W. Masox, Commissioner. In accordance with the foregoing, Collector Acres detailed and gave special instructions to Deputy Co'Jector E. N. Gates, and he will leave for Guthrie at once in charge of ten other deputies whom Collector Acres has commissioned and sworn in for special service in Oklahoma. Tho intention is that the force of deputies shall be on the ground in advance of the boomers with arrangements consummated to prevent the sale of liquors at any cost, and with full euthority to use the military if necessary to compel an observance of law. Serious Trouble Averted. Pukcell, I. T., April 23. The apprehended trouble from the wounding and arrest of the boomers has been averted by the release of the captured men. The Tex-ans changed the course of their march and fearing collision with the United States troops have encamiied about five miles from the Oklahoma border. The two men supposed to be mortally wounded now appear to be in a fair wcy to recover, and unless through some unforeseen accidents there will be no deaths resulting from the battle. The Texans at first swore revenge, but have prudently concluded to first take oossession of their lands, and if they secure their quarter sections they will be satisfied to let the trr nble drop. lhe rush from the north into Oklahoma 6till continues. The line for sixty miles south of Oklahoma was practically unbroken, Like water m a pipe, the wasrons emrjtied oui ai one ena ana nnea in at the other, al ways full. And so it is from the south, all day long the white topped wagons pass through Purcell, which is only across the river trom the Mecca of these pilgrims. The railroad is taxed to its utmost, and the Santa Fe has at last 6olved the problem ny running two trains north on a smgli track against two running south. With twenty or more trains a day on this new road not a single accident has occurred, the only mishap being the breaking of the water works, which has caussed a scarcity of water. The telegraph operators handling all these trams are constantly at work day and night. That their work has been well done, the record of no accidents will bear witness. JL he business here is simply wonderf tu. Indians and Whisky. St. Locis, Aprd 22. George B. Clark, of this city, revenue agent in charge of the dis tricts of Missouri and Illinois, received in structions from Commissioner Mason to proceed to Oklahoma territory and take charge of the government s interests there as far as internal revenue restrictions and collections were concerned. The United btates marshal and the military will co-operate with the internal revenue agent in enforcing the law. It is anticipated a large amount of liquor will be carried into the new country, and attempts be made to sell it without license. It is also thought that the new comers will not obey the law pro- iii oiung roe saie oi wmsKy to ine Indians. well known fact that an Indian full of Ken tucky distilled, considers no rights sacred or human life of any consequence. Trouble is expected from this quarter. From Actnal Knowledge. Topeka, Kan., April 22. The land officers, both at Kingfisher and at Guthrie, held consultation and gave out the following as official, as to the manner of application for filing claims: All applications must be presented to the register and receiver in the form prescribed by the rules and regulations of tho depart ment. No original entry papers will be prepared by the land officer. Proper blank forms will be furnished by the land officials to actual applicants on application, but not to attorneys. Guthrie land office will be opened Monday at noon. The non-mineral affidavit cannot be made upon hearsay, but upon the actual knowledge of the applicant himself. All affidavits and oaths must be administered by the receiver or register. Advices From General Merltt. Washington. D. C, April 23. The follow ing telegram ha9 been received at the war department, dated Chicago, 111.: "The fol lowing telegram, dated at Oklahoma station, is respectfully forwarded: 'Have just arrived at this station: found everything auiet. and am making such disposition as will maintain peace on and after the 22d. The means of communication an railroad wire are in adequate even for the railroad travel. Com munication, in order to certainly reach me. should be wired through Woodward to Fort Reno, with which post 1 am making arrange ments to establish a fine of carriers. Will telegraph later, as I receive information. V. MEBBITT, f Brigadier General,' "Geobge Cbook, "Major General Commanding." Checkmated by the Hants Fe. Topeka, Kan., April 23. The men who were to build bridges on the line of the settlers march and tax the settlers were checkmated by the Santa Fe road as soon as it was learned that these sharks were charging the emigrants from So to S10 for crossing. The railroad company planked its road bridges over the daneerous streams between Kansas and the Oklahoma line, built inclines to let teams on the road and passed them over for nothing. From the Oklahoma line to the Kansas City line the Ponca trail is strewn with camp fires at night and white covered wagons in the day time. A veteran gays he has seen nothing approaching the number of camp fires since the army was camped on the Jfotomac. The Chicago Colonists. Chicago, III., April 23. A special train left the city, on the Santa Fe road, having on board about 250 colonists for Oklahoma. They renre-ont two colonies. One is the Chicago Oklahoma colony, the other the Chicago Oklahoma Settler's association. The former will settle in Edmans township, the latter in Guthrie township. The travel ers will be well armed and supplied with an abundance of tents and provisions. Material for nearly 1.000 residences and business houses have been shipped from this city. Ten Thousand in Ons Day. Chicago, III., April 23. A conservative estimate as to the number of people who expected to settle on town lots around Guthrie, Oklahoma, is 10,000. Monday, at 12 o'clock, the station at Guthrie was without an inhab itant. By night it was a city of 10,000 people. A Chicago firm who handle sectional houses will have ouo bouses on tne ground, and each house, with plenty of help can be put up in two hours. Thirteen houses, in sections, were shipped to Guthrie from Ar kansas City. The Xfon-BIlneral Clanse. Pubcell, L T., April 22. Some of the settlers who succeed in getting a claim, and do not understand about the non-mineral clause, will be almost as sorely disappointed as those who do not succeed in tibng their claims, as the registers say no claims will be hied unless tne applicants sign tne DianK containing that clause, which virtually al lows all the mmrral lound on tne settler s land to revert back to the government, if it chooses to hold him to his bargain. Cnnfiseaied tvhltky. Guthrie, I. T., April 23 The orders to confiscate all whisky found in the territory has created consternation among a class who expected to take chances. There are a number of half barrels of whisky already in the cars, billed to Guthrie. United States Marshal Needles, of the Indian territory, said that he should be relentless. Needles does not anticipate any lawlessness at Guth rie, but thinks the southern border may be unruly. Kansas Prohibition. Atchison, Kan., April 23. In a recent in terview Senator Ingalls is quoted as saying: The effect of prohibition in Kansas has been unmistakably advantageous, and the suppression of the open dramshop traffic in the state was one of the most extraordinary results of modern civilization. If the question would again be submitted to the paople, have no doubt it would be adopted by a vote practically unanimous." Win do 111 'a Whisky Order, Washington, D. C, April 23. Secretary Windom has ordered a suspension of the sale of tax st amps to parties desiring to engage in the wholesale or retail sale of liquors in Oklahoma. The secretary's decision is based on the ground that it would be impossible to get liquor into Oklahoma without crossing some portion of the Indian territory. Boh Smalls. Washington, D. C, April 22. Robert Smalls, who for two congresses has made a contest for a seat in the house, has received ms commission as collector 01 inrernai revenue at Beaufort, S. C. This has been a tri angular factional fight, in which the colored as well as the white republicann have been divided. Martial Law. Topeka, Kan., April 23. General Merritt and his soldiers are at Guthrie to establish marshal law. There is great satisfaction among the settlers on account of the order establishing martial law, and there is a feeling of safety never existing before. CROWDED TRAINS. The Crowds l arger Than Expected The Railroads Worked to the Limit of -PoHinillty Tht First Comera Get First Chances. Town Iots Claimed for Purpose of Pale A Solitaule in the Morning Bias a L ally Paper and City Election ltcfore Night. Guthrie, Ok., April 24. No one who has never Eeen a western tow n take form and shape can net comprehend tow quickly a full rigged city with a double deck boom can bo put in running motion. Guthrie already has its Main street, its Harrison street, its Guthrie avenue and its Oklahoma avenue, and this morning it was a wilderness where the antelope sported and the jack-rabbit flapped his ears in the sun. At 4 o'clock p. ni. the fihst municipal election occurred. The election notice appeared in the Oklahoma Herald, a daily paper, published at Guthrie on the first day of its existence. A council will be elected at the same time. Nearly 1,000 votes were polled, as there are about that many men in Guthrie with the intention. of becoming citizens. The leading Tiaiujbdates" for mayor were Adjutant General Heece, of Illinois, AVilliam Con-sfantine, of SpringEeld, O., and T. L. Sumner, of Arkansas City. A strong dark horse -is olney Haggert, o Huron, Dak. Tho Kingfisher land office was not opened the tiist day. Pubcell, I. T., April 24. Five hundred dollars was paid for a fleet horse by Tom Horton, who exi.-ects to reach a claim proposed to be taken by a townsite company, which expects to build a city that will rival Purcell. Many fleet horees have been brought from Texas and Kansas. There is as much struggling for townsites as for sections. Thirty-two townsite companies will go to Guthrie, half that number to Oklahoma City, and twenty to Kingfisher, while there are r applicants for sites on al-niosu eveiy section. This makes the average settler swear. Trouble among townsite companies promises to be as dangerous as among claim hunters. Animosity is brewing between tho northern and soethern people. A settler, caniped on the Oklahoma line, said: "My party had a cowboy guide. When we came to ths Chickasaw we were compelled to pay a man $450 to swim the stieam and bring us a little boat in which we could cross. The same thing had to be done at Salt Fork. We gave our guide $100, find if he gets us well located, he gets $130." Another party paid their guide $20. It had leaked out during the wakeful hours of the night, befora the train left Kansas, that the press special coach would be a part of the first train to move out. The railroad niai:a,'ement succeeded veil in keeping this fact a secret. No one but the representatives of the press were informed of the fact or knew the location of the press car or the time of its departure, but it is impossible to keep such information from people who sit up all night to find out the shortest and easiest way of getting into the promised land. The result was that when the newspaper coach was backed up at a point below the depot, the entire crowd charged upon it. The newspaper men were ranged in a solid phalanx, but had to light across from the platform to the car. Ihere were rustlers who had been fighting on the borders for several years, and who had a death grip on the iron railing, and expressed a determination to go in that car. These were not easily disposed of, but after them came a swarm of men with bogus credentials presuming to represent every great newspaper in the United States. Nearly every correspondent was called upon to discredit two or three of these assumed journalists, and scores of others tailed of identification or recognition and were made to fall back with more of a precipitancy than good order. A Prophesy of the Santa Fe. New Yoke-, April 2f. The Railway Age says: "The annual meeting of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad company will be held at Topeka May 9. when in spite of speculative rumors of impending changes. absorption by a rival company, etc., we have no doubt that the present management will be easily re-electad. The majority of the owners of this great system are perfectly able to distinguish tho difference between difficulties resu ting from mismanagement and those which are the result of causes and conditions affecting all railways, and they have foresight and courage enough to look ahead and wait for the improvement which is soon to come. Already the conditions affecting the railways west of the Missouri river are greatly improv2d, and the crop prospects for Kansas are unusually promising. Large wheat and corn crops next summer and fall would make a heavy increase in earnings, and put this and other similarly situated roads on the way to renewed prosperity. It is a notable fact in regard to the Atchison, that in all that has been said about its management, no reception has been cast upon the integrity of its directors and officers. Commanding aa they do tho confidence and respect of the stockholders, they will be re-elected, except that possibly there may be the voluntary retirement of two or three directors to give placo to representatives of interests which will strengthen the company. Land Office Business. Pubcell, I. T. April 24. Immediately up on the arrival of the crowded trams at Guthrie, the land office was beseiged by an eager and determined crowd of men waiting to file claims upon homesteads. As the afternoon wore on, this crowd grew larger until at closing time, it reached a regular line far down the line toward the railroad station. Business in the land office went rather slowly. The register and receiver did the best they could, but the pressure upon them was tremendous. The men who were waiting to file claims were forced into line two abreast. They carried blankets and baskets of provisions with them. Friends brought them water to drink from an engine tank at the railway track in the rear of the land office. Dealers in real estate began business liefore 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The land office occupies the mof t conspicuous place in the entire town-site. It is located at the top of the slope that leads eastward from the railroad. It can be seen for several miles in all directions. It is not yet finished, but is doing joinething more than a land ofhee business. A Darinc" Robbery, Pattonbbubg, Mo., April 24. A masked robber entered the express office here, and putting a revolver to the agent s head, ordered him to open up the safe and deliver over all his valuables. Tho agent was not slow in obeying orders, and Mr. Robber left directly afterwards with severs! money packages con' aining in all, between $b,UUU and $10,000. The authorities refuse to give any information in the ma; ter, but are work ing hard-to get on tho robber's track. Yellow Ferer In Brazil. Baltimore, April 21. The British steam. ship Pine Branch, Captain Hutchinson, ar rived hero from Rio Janerio, via Barbados, reports yellow fever as terrible at Santos and Rio Janeiro. The numiier of deaths at the latter port reaches 1C0 a day. The Sionx Commission. Washington, D. C, April 24. The presi dent has appointed the following commission to negotiata with the Sioux in Dakota! General George Crook, United States Army; Hon. Charles Foster of Ohio, and Hon. William Warner of Kansas City. Three Train Loads from Newton. - Newton, Kan., April 24. Three train loads of people bound for Oklahoma, left over the Santa Fe, Among them was a number of capitalie ts who will organize a bank and open stores and be ready tor busi ness in Guthrie to-morrow morning. Two hundrei dwellings were shipped ready to e put up in a couple of hours. Massachusetts' Vote. Boston, April 24. One hundred and fifty eight cities and towns outside of Boston give the following vote on constitutionaJ prohibitory amendment: Yes, 43,254; no, 55,328. The vote of Boston is: Yes, 11,060: no, 31,075. The amendment is defeated by from 35,uaw to 4U,uvj majority. Serlons Rioting; in Vienna. Vienna. April 24. There was serious riot ing in this city, arising out of the strike of reet car drivers. Workingmen in sympa thy with tho strikers blockaded the streets and overcame the police. A force of cavalry had to be called out to quell the disorder. Many persons wera injured, and a large number arrested. The majority of the cat men of the city are on a strike. The socialists side with them: The riot- ing occurred in the suburbs. The military an 1 police charsed the crowds with swords. Many of the rioters received bloody wounds and about 100 were arrest el. . The mob re-plisd by throwing stones.
