This Little “Cut”
In the Good Old Way.
Washington, D. C. May $4.—“Some
tlmo ago," said deoretary Hoke Smith
I said that J waa bound and determined
to figure out some way to open the
Cborokee outlet other than tbe old-time
scampering, pell-mell,race-horse meth-
od popular In other and former open-
ings. To-day I am bound to confess to
you that I can not do it. Every pther
fray suggested ran elap up against tbe
law before we got through. After sev-
eral week* of study I must say I see no
other way than-to open tbe outlet and
permit people to make their land selec-
tions the same way they, did before.
My people are wording night and day
at the preliminaries, and you can say
that we will surely have - the outlet
opened by Sept. 15. In fact I expect
that will be very near tbe opening date.
‘‘No, I can not say anything os to how
the opening In Its other details will be
managed os we have not fully perfected
our plana. T.nnd-grabbera and speoula->
tors will have a bard road to travel.
You can aay that honest home-seekera
will get their right* this time."

“Unole Tom'* Cabin" hits certainly
"broke loose"! The copyright on this
most far ous of American novels, by
Mr*. Stowe, has recently expired, which
frees it* publication from the mouopoly
of the btghpj-lced publishers, and
though In anticipation of tbla foot they
have within a few months greatly re-
duced it* price, now that It Is really
‘■unchained" the aonseuuenoes are
something surprising. John B. Alden,

also au excellent large-typo edition, on
fine paper, boaaoonu.y bound In cloth
