of this district will congratulate them

to do much good work for the district.
Ho will represent the hope, thu aspira

honest convictions of thu district. Make

nflairs of Oklulioni'i I left Esbon,
Kansas, on the morning of the tilth of
August, and it was so cool that I was
compelled to wear a winter wiap
which was comfoi table until I teached
Manhattan; after that I had no occasion
for wraps, in fact upon my arrival at
Kingfisher tho heat wns very oppiessivo
to me, and has been ever since till the
night of thu !2(lth it tinned cool, but thu
28th again warm. Tho thermometer
registers as high as 103, and it wns re

judge tho wind blows hero about thu
thu sumo as it docs in Jewell County,
Kansas, but instead of dust it blows
sand. The drougth has injured tho
crop to some extent and all thu water
melons nnd peaches that I have seen
ate small. I havo failed to find any
good eating apples, but there any
amount of cooking apples at sixty
cents per biisbol nnd tipwnids. Thu col
ored population raise a great ninny veg
etables nnd fruits nnd aro seen every
day peddling them on the streets. It is
comical to sec the little picaninios on a
load of watermelons. On looking out at
any time one can see numbers of pica
ninios amusing themselves in various
Kingfisher is said to havo it popu
lation of .1600 and a goodly number of
them aro colored. Tee negroes compose
fully ono third of tho number owning
claims in tho C. and A. country, which
was opened foi settlement in 1802. They
aro as a class industrious nnd are mak
ing money. Kingfisher is a bustling little
place, but it can boast of only ono rail
road, thu Kock Island. Ithnsalso three
batiks and tho business portion of thu
town is built of brick, which is made
here. Thu coloicd inhabitants havo
their stores and churches on a sepcrato
street, but they carry on business with
Tneronru eight churches hero; M eth
odists and Christians being tho lending
denominations. Thu colored Baptists
aru building a line brick church, in
which to worship. There are also nine
hotels and a few boarding houses nnd
resttiarants, but very fow rooming

dollars ($'.2.00) a week. Thoro aro a
few vacant houses now, but I'm told
that this time last year everything wns

dollar and a half ($1 50) per week but
transients havo to pay twentytivo
cents ($0.25) .a meal. However somo
of thu rcstuarants give fifteen cents

Anneal Eiieiinpment of the tetrltorial
militia came to n close the '20th lilt,
after several days of camp life and
military discipline, drill nnd routine in
tho city park Thousands of people
visited the enmp every elay to witness
the di Ills: tho specinl attraction being
tho regimentnl parade each evening at
GuO Thousands of stintigers were In
the city during tho tlmo On Wednes
day nfternoon the annual sham battle
took place, and was witnessed by fully
live thousand people. Immediately
after tho ha i battle orders wei o issued
to break camp and each out-going Haiti
took portioii" of tho leglment. The
night before I artived, during this
encampment, the negioes caused some
double nt the depot mid Unco coin,
panics of militia were called out to
quell the mob. It is interesting to me
to wnteh the Indians in their blankets
nod moccasins, ami no mutter if the
inclinometer does register 103 deg. Ehr
they will have their blankets wrapped
round them, the mo3t of which aru
mndo of the biightest colors imagin
able, although some are of somber
A great many of them, men as well
ns women, braid their raven black hair
in two braids anil wrap it for six or
eight inches with the brightest colored
ribbons Once in a whilo I notico one
with a feather stuck in their hair. Ono
morning as I was going to the oflice I
noticed n squaw with a papooso on her
shoulders and holding it there with her
blnnkut wrapped around both while
just behind her wns a young Indinu of
probably fourteen dressed in tho bright
est red nnd one of about sixteen in
green that would rival the grass in its
coloring. They do not work, but live
upon their income which has given
somo peoplo the idea that they aro
fostered by tho government, nnd al
though they aro the wards of tho gov
ernment tho money, etc, they receivo
from it is the interest on the money
paid thorn for tho lands that havo been
opened for settlement. Each Indian
has left a quarter section of his or her
own which thoy nro permitted to loaso
to tho whites for a peroid not exceed
ing two years at tho expiration of which
timo it may bo leased again. The first
year's crop, however is almost worth
less ns tho sod must be rotted nnd somo
of tho numerous weeds destoryed which
is done by turning the sod. The soil is
of a red color and looks to me like clay,
but it is a very rich loam as is manifest
ed by the bountiful crops produced
thereon. I havo only been out six
miles in the Indian allottmeuts but they
stietch away as far as the eye can reach
to and beyond the Worth Canadian
river. I saw the home eif ono of tho
chiefs, which is a modest white box
house I am told farther out the In
dians lives in tents or teepees, but near
town they havo small houses nnd thoy
also camp out most of tho timo. I do
not understand how they endure the
heat as they do, why thoy will have
their heavy blankets wrapped around
them, and seem quite comforttiblo
dining thu warmest days when tho
wind, fairly scorches my face. I have
seen a few of thorn with light-weight
blankets. Thoy take great piido in
their ponies, and an Indian is wealthy
according to the number of them he
owns. They have their religious
dancus as described in history, but tho
government has forbidden them to in
Hict toiture, upon themselves as was
their custom. I learn that they havo a
Baptist church a few miles in tho
country, pastorod by n whites man. Tho
Cheyenne and Arrapnhoes aro said to
bo the largest of tho Indian tribes and
thoy are heavy.
Labor Day, or tho 1st of September
was ushered in with rain, nnd it con
tinued nil day and as it cooled off the
air it made it very pleasant indeed.
There nro a great many things that I
would like to tell you about this section
of tho country but will not try tho pa
tience of tho editor longer this timo,
but will probably givo you another
sketch of Oklahoma lifo later on.

spite all efforts to subdue the flames, it
was burned to tho ground. Mr Scott
had beon in tho upper part of the
house, earlier in tho morning, looking
for something and had beon lighting
matches to see with and it is thought
that the firn was started by sparks from
somo of tho matches. Only $300 of
insurnnco was carried on the house,
