Booze Cases to District Court
The new liquor law which has been passed by the legislature and signed by the governor will cause a change and transfer more cases from the county to the district court.
The new law makes bootlegging a felony, which will necessitate filing all such cases in the district court, which formerly were tried in the county court. Such cases have been numerous in the past and their transfer to the district court will serve to increase the work of the higher court and give the county court more time to attend to probate business.
By making the penalty heavier it is believed that the law also will have fewer violations.
Wednesday, March 5th is designated clean-up day. Place trash in barrels, boxes, and sacks and place near the streets and alley for the city’s wagon to get. W. L. Cooper, Exofficio Mayor
Unallotted Indian Land Sale
J. George Wright, commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes, last week issued an order for the sale of the remaining unallotted lands in the Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations. The sales will start in Chickasha, Grady County, on May 1 and close at Idabel on May 15. Two classes of land will be sold- that which failed to sell in May 1912, amounting to 115,000 acres and 90,118 acres in the Choctaw Nation which were removed from sale in 1910 on the supposition that they were timber lands, but since that time have not proven available for timber purposes. There is no fixed appraisement and the land will be sold to the highest bidder. The lands do not include the surface asphalt and coal segregated lands and for this reason the purchaser will receive all title and fee in the property both surface and mineral.
The unallotted Indian land in Bryan county amounts to 5,123.56 acres and the sale will be held in Durant May 2.
