introduced the bill for the creation
of the Territory of Oklahoma out of

Territory and they will also rameni

opened to white settlement.
The name "Oklahoma" which
means in Indian language "The
Land oi trie fair Uod" was furnished
by Colonel C Bnudinot, one of the
most prominent men in the Cherokee
nation, tie was an able lawyer and
an accomplished p-entleman, and
stood almost alone among the Indians

to wflite settlement.
I recently had the nieasnre of be

Editorial Association in Guthrie.
Oklahoma and want to give the read
ers of The Conner a letter telling
them some things concerning this
new country; so will begin at the
opening of the Territory, which was
on the 32nd of April 1889, a little
over 16 years ago. At the signal,
tne Bring of cannons, tne thousands
of people who had stationed them'
selves aleng the borders made a mad
rush to stake off their land; a lot was
allowed in the sites for towns and
160 acres were allowed for a planta
tion. A great many funny things
happened of court e; one old women
drove her stake between the Sailroad
tics in what is now Oklahoma Cit?
and declared tnat it would take a
locomotive and train of cars to move
her. A man who happened to gt
bis stake on the lot that had the
only well near, was found selling
water at 5 cts per pint, he made bis
fortune before the Government
officials found it out; of course they
bad to stop this to prevent suffering.
It was necessary to put up tents, huts
or dog a storm cellar as soon as pos
sible so that they could identify
their property. In a rood many
cases contests were held to find the
rightful owner, sometimes a murder
followed. Now you find every one
settled and interested in bis own
affairs; the towns and cities full of
beautiful homes and all kinds f
business going on that you find in
our own towns and cities. In the
country you find neat little homes;
usually you see four homes together,
this means that four families have
ut their homes in the corners of
60 acres in order to have neighbors
and this seem necessary, for in some
parts of the Territory you go for
miles withont seeing a house and
along the railroad see herns of cattle

Next came Oklahoma City, which
is the largest city in the Territory

Miller Brother's 101 ranch enter
tainment on Sunday June 11th was
worth a trip from North Carolina to
see. There weie 80,000 people whe
witnessed the chose of 50 buffaloes
by the Indians, the parade of real
Indians and cowboys, tbe roping nf
wild steers, trick tiding, the wonder
ful negro, Pickett, throwing a wild
steer with his teeth, the cowboys and
and girls in a horseback quadrille
and Miss Lucile Mnlhall, who rode
a "bucking bronco," roped steers as
easily as did the men, etc. This
ranch contains 87,000 acre" of laud,
10,000 of which is under cultivation.
The balance is uied for grazing pur
poses. The farming is done, almost
entirely by machinery. To give an
idea of magnitude of implements used
there was on exhibition one of their
traction engine and gang plows.
The engine is 25 horse power with
16 discs each of which cuts a furrow
14 inches. These plows are run
both d-iy and night and it is said will

was done in the day time and during
the night another force of hands
used the same machine and plowed
2,000 ucres of laud. This Miller

What Criminal Raleigh is Do
ing Dewey Gets Six Years
A. H. Eller Second Treas
N. C. Railroad.
Raleich. N C. Jnlv 10. 1905.
The July term of Wake Superior
uourc began its work to-day. The
principal case to be tried is set for
Friday that of the State vs. Ray
mond D Ilynum, indicted for the
killing of his business partner.
deacon J li Alford, last December.
He will be tried for murder, but
whether he can be convicted on that
charge remains to be developed by
me evidence auuuceu.
The defence claims that the shoot
ing was done while the two men were
engaged in a physical "scuffle," and
there are witnesses who have made
statements to that effect. It
claimed by some of the friends of the
deceased (so it is stated) that the
"souffle was the result of the dis
covery by Alford that Bynum had a
piatol and that the deceased, fearing
that his partner (with whom a con
troversy had previously arisen) in
tended to attack him. grappled with
Bvnum ifl said to have been crazed
by hard and long continued drinking,
and when he was captured and
brought bock to Raleigb, a week
after the killing, ha was in a most
distressing condition, both mentally
and physically. It is claimed that
he was assisted by friends in getting
away from Raleigh, but that after
they left him he did not have sense
enough left ts take auvantage of
opportunities to make good his es
cape. The fact that he went to his
ola home in Gates county rjnd was
arrested at the borne of his sister,
where his mother was stoppiug, is
cited by bis friends as evidence of
The Kafc'gh policeman, Isaac W
.Rogers, will not be tned at this term
for the shooting of Deputy U S Mar
shal, John Dockery, for the reason
that the hitter's physicians are not
yet able to state definitely whether
Dookery will recover. His condition
has improved during the last week,
however, and it is now thought that
his life will be saved. But the pis
tol balls have not been extracted yet
aud lie is still in a serious condition.
Rogers is still in jail and has not
yet had a preliminary hearing.
Claude JSernard, tbe man who has
figured so prominently in the scandal
that caused the shooting of Dockery,
has not returned to Raleigh and the
prospects ef his voluntary return
any time soon seem to be very doubt
ful. II e was in Norfolk, Va, last
Friday and Saturtlay and an alleged
interview with him was telegraphed
to the newspapers her, in which he
was reported to have nsed some very
"saucy" language about the people
of Raleigh and the newspapers of
north Carolina, lie refused to dis
close his future plans or movements
and it is probable that he will give
Raleigh a wid" berth for some time
to come. Process in the civil suit
against him can not be served while
he remains out of the estate.
But if the grand jury of Wake
Superior Court, now in session here.
should indict Bernard for a criminal
offence he can be arrested and
brought Wk to Raleigh. Whether
that will be done remains to be seen.
Aaothcr case that is attracting
general attention, and which will be
disposed of at this term of court, is
that of tho two men (Rogers and
Sorrcll) who are now completing a
30-days' term in jail, for contempt
of com t, growing out of the Gattis
vs rvilgo and Duke civil suit, which
was tried last monfh, resulting in
the non-suiting of the plaintiff Gat
tis. An effort will be made, it is
understood, to still further punish
these men for the same offense, on
the charge of "embracery." What
will actually be done about tha mat
ter can not be anticipated.
The prisoners themselves and all
the attorneys for Messrs Kilgo and
Duke have already sworn that Rog
ers and Sorrel 1 were not employed
in any capacity in the civil suit and
that they were not authorizixl in any
manner to do anything in connectsou
with that case. lhis evidence,
coupled with the additional state
ment of the men that they acted en
tirely on their own responsibility,
and purely because of their personal
sympathy, is generally accepted as
the truth of the whole matter not
withstanding the efforts to make it
appear otherwise, thereby prejudic
ing the cose now appealed to the ou-
reme Court, by a few enemies of
ir Kilgo and Mr Bcnj N Duke
whose high personal character, piety
and great usefulness are recognized
by all unprejudiced people.
But, as Governor Aycock said, in
his eloquent speech in which he so
beautifully and earnestly portrayed
the real and true character and life
of )r Kilgo, it is the great men,
who actually and actively do things
and accomplish great and beneh
cietit results, who encounter opposi
tion and attract enemies.
The jury in tho case of Thomas
W Dewey, the defaulting bank cash
ier of New Bern, whose trial ended
btet Thursday, brought iu a verdict
of guilty ba urday evening, after be
ing out two days and nights. Judge
Jones sen tensed Dewey to six years
in the penitentiary. Ao. appeal was
taken. In tbe meantime Dewey is
