Law Removing Oklahoma Land
Restrictions Goes Into Effect.
Anxious Crowds of Buyers and Sellers
and Hundreds of Thousands of
Dollars Changing Allottees Get
What They Want.
Tho law lemovlng the government re
strictions on 9,000,001) acres or Indian
lands In Oklahoma has gone Into ef
fect. Every real estate otllce In that
linrt of the new state Is crowded with
anxious buxers and sellers of land,
money is changing hands by the hun
dreds of thousands, agents are busy
corralling the allottees that have been
In practical captivity during the past
few days, leases are being taken on
lund that is not bought and actual
cash is being passed from hand to
liand, making the night one of the
most exciting in years In Oklahoma.
Everyone Is striving to get the first
chance at the property.
, The removal means that 9,000,000
of the 20,000,000 acres of Indian land
in forty counties in eastern Oklahoma
becomes saleable. The fight of the
'white man to secure the Indian lands
began the moment the Indian allot
ments were made and it has been
pushed every since. When statehood
became effective and the question of
taxation became an issue the removal
of restrictions became imperative, but
not until Oklahoma got its own dele
gation In congress was the desired
legislation secured. For a month
agents of real estate companies have
been rounding up the Indian and
negroe allottees. One buyer has been
entertaining a number of Indians and
negroes here for three days, providing
them with everything they desired,
the only conditions imposed being
that they do not leave their rooms or
nllow anyone to enter. Guards In tho
hnlhvay night and day see that tho
rule is obeyed.
