The First Week in Oklahoma City
By Angelo C. Scott

The original "Oklahoma" was a comparatively small area, embracing practically the territory now known as Canadian, Kingfisher, Logan, Oklahoma and Payne Counties. The remaining portions of Indian Territory with the exception of "No Mans Land", the narrow strip in the northwest, were assigned to and occupied by various Indian tribes. The Oklahoma country was unassigned, and was therefore held to be public domain of the United States and subject to homestead entry. In consequence, for several years prior to 1889 it was the scene of numerous attempts at settlement, led chiefly by Captain David S. Payne and (after his death) Captain William S. Couch.  These attempts were frustrated by the military forces of the United States, under Presidents Harrison and Cleveland. About 1885 the contest was transferred to Washington, in an effort on the part of the "Boomers" to secure the legal opening of these lands to settlement.

For four years the question occupied more or less the attention of the Congress, the measure being opposed by the Indian tribes of Indian Territory and by the Cattlemen, who were enjoying exceptional grazing privaleges (sic) in the "Oklahoma Country". On March 3, 1889 in the expiring hours of Congress a "rider" was attached to and passed with the Indian Appropriation Bill providing for the opening of these lands to settlement, establishing Land Offices, but making no provision for the organization of a territorial government. That is, the land was open to settlement, but it had no organized government, no officers, and no laws except such federal Laws as applied to federal territory.

On March 23, 1889 President Benjamin Harrison issued a proclimation (sic) setting the date of the opening on the 22nd of April at 12 oclock, noon and forbidding entrance before that time.

At that hour immense multitudes were waiting in eager expectancy at every point of vantage on the borders of the "promised land", and at the discharge of the Soldiers carbines began that wild tumultuous ride for home – in wagons, in carriages, on fleet horses, in railway trains – which will doubtless be celebrated in song and story to future generations.

It was a thrilling and unique event and it is literally true to say that a commonweath (sic) was densely populated in a single day.
But this sketch has only to do with Oklahoma City. There was nothing here but the Santa Fe railway station bearing the name "Oklahoma", its attendant residence quarters, a rude little post office and two or three other small "shacks". It had not been designated as one of the Land Office stations, but there was a wide spread opinion that its advantageos (sic) situation would make it the chief city of the future state.
The day of the "opening" was perfect. Recent spring rains had fallen, but the 22nd dawned cloudless and serene, and the day throughout was such an (sic) one as Oklahoma produces in her happiest moods.

The site of the future Oklahoma City, which before nightfall was to be so rudely disfigured, lay smiling in the sunlight, an emerald field spangled with the early flowers of spring.

Probably the first legal settlers reached the townsite on horseback from the nearest point on the South Canadian river. This was the so called "Oklahoma Colony" and almost immediately upon their arrival they called an election for "provisional" city officers, in which three or four hundred persons participated but which was disregarded by a great majority of those on the townsite, and come to nought (sic).

This party arrived about One Oclock P.M.  Soon after came the first Santa Fe train from Purcell and then the first train from the north, and then the multitudes poured in from every direction, and by every method of locomotion. By nightfall there were probably ten thousand persons on the townsite, a city of tents had arisen, and the clamor of multitudinous voices smote the air. Torches flickered everywhere. Furrs (sic)were momentarily revealed by them, and then vanished into the darkness. Horses neighed and pawed the ground. Campfires glowed on every hand and the odor of broiling bacon and brewing coffee filled the air with appetizing fragrance.

It seemed like some huge foregathering for pleasure, or the insubstantial pageant of a dream.

But it was neither. These home-seeking people had, with their frail habitations of cloth taken root in the soil; and there they stayed, and their habitations changed from cloth to wood, from wood to brick, from brick to granite and marble and steel. That first night was by no means devoted to merry-making, or even very largely to sleep.

I spoke a little while since of a "townsite". There was no townsite. The federal law provided that when a certain number of persons entered upon a portion of the public domain for the purpose of establishing a town, that act segregated the land for town-site purposes. But there were no streets or allies or known bounderies (sic). Every man, as soon as he reached the town-site stuck his stake in the most likely place he could find, and that made it his, unless some other man had preceeded (sic) him in the act or the lot turned out to be in some subsequently established street. So all the afternoon of the 22nd and much of the night, witnessed swarming thousands feverishly staking lots and raising tents upon them; and at daybreak of the 23rd the eager quest was resumed with unabated zeal. And thus things went on until noon of the second day. Then it begin (sic) to dawn upon the tired multitude that nobody knew what his possessions were, or his rights. It was a vast assemblage of strangers. Scarcely one man knew another. A few of us, strangers to each other, but thus thrown into violent contact and a common interest, decided to call a public meeting to consider what should be done. We mounted some boys on ponies, gave them bells to ring, and sent them out to all the quarters to announce the meeting for 2 o'clock. At that hour a great multitude assembled in the space now bounded by Main Street and Grand Avenue north and south, and by Broadway and Robinson east and west.

The writer of this sketch was elected chairman of the meeting, and he will never forget its proceedings to the slightest detail. A huge box was obtained and set on end, and the chairman was lifted upon it.

A secretary was elected, - Mr. M. H. Woods of Kansas. Another box secured and he was hoisted to his station. A sea of faces surged about us in every direction. The excitement was intense, for every man's interests were at stake – literally at "stake".

The meeting raged for three hours. It is not intended to convey the idea that it was disorderly, much less, riotous; but it was exciting and tumultuous, and it was interesting, to say the least, to preside over. At its close the chairman lay in the shade of a tent for an hour and spoke only in whispers. The net result of the meeting was the adoption of a resolution to elect a citizens committee of fourteen, which should proceed at once to have the town-site surveyed, laid off in lots and blocks and platted. The election was then and there proceeded with, and it was dramatic, amusing, and in some quarters discomfiting.

Nominations came thick and fast, and when a man was nominated he was hustled through the crowd to the chairman's station. With a helping hand from the chairman and secretary, together with further aid from below, he was lifted to the side of the officers and exposed to the scrutiny of the multitude. If they liked his looks they voted him up, if the (sic) didn't they voted him down.

An effort was made to select men from different states, and the list finally selected is interesting, as reflecting the cosmopolitan character of the gathering. It was as follows: M. V. Barney of Illinois – John A. Blackburn of Missouri – W. H. Eby of Kansas – A. L Mendlick of Wisconsin – D. J. Moore of Kansas – D. E. Murphy of Indiana – Charles W Price of Colorado – C. J. Scott of Texas – A. C. Scott of Kansas – W. P. Shaw of Missouri – O. H. Violet of California – James B. Wheeler of Michigan – M. H. Woods of Kansas and B. N. Woodson of Texas.

The Committee got to work without loss of time. It met that evening at dusk in a large tent near the corner of Main and Broadway, and was in session until 2 o'clock in the morning.

It decided on the width, location, and names of the streets, and the size of lots. It employed an Engineer to proceed at once to survey the townsite and prepare a plat. It also appointed a sub-comittee (sic) to follow upon the heels of the survey, and hear and adjudicate the possessory claims of occupants of the lots, since it was appearant (sic) that almost innumerable conflicting claims would be set up. It is to be held in mind that priority of settlement – that is "staking" determined the right to the lot. Bright and early Wednesday morning the Engineering Corps began the survey at the point where Reno Street intersects the Santa Fe right of way. Soon after the sub-committee entered upon the formidable task of settling disputed claims to lots, passing from lot to lot, hearing testimony where possession was disputed, and summarily deciding the case upon the spot. There was nothing binding about these decisions, since the whole procedure was extra-legal and carried out only by common consent but perhaps in the majority of cases the decisions were accepted as final, and those which were not were later adjudicated by the "Townsite Board" a body subsequently created by Congress.

The deeds issued by this Board form the basis of all titles in the original Oklahoma City including south Oklahoma.
A characteristic spring wind had set in by this time and continued to the end of the week, and the dust permeated everything. The sub-comitte (sic) soon became involved in so great a throng of contestants and spectators that its progress was practically impossible. Three long boards were secured and nailed together in triangular shape, and thus enclosed and protected from the encroaching crowd the committee pursued its way, the triangular structure being borne along by those on the outside.

Thus things went on during Wednesday, Thursday, and a part of Friday. Of course many "Stakings" proved to be in the streets and therefore valuless (sic).  There was no contests (sic) about these and the streets rapidly began to clear of tents in the wake of the Surveyors; and the writer remembers that he felt deep satisfaction in seeing the streets gradually define themselves among the wilderness of tents.

It should be remembered that the original townsite included only that tract bounded on the south by Reno Street, on the north by Eighth Street, on the east by Santa Fe right of way, and on the west by Walker Street.

But complications had been gathering during the week, and by Friday evening the situation was acute. The Seminole Town Company, an organization from Topeka, Kansas, had made a plat of the townsite before the opening, and, sought to have the settlement made in accordance with it. Very few knew of the existence of this plat in the beginning, and those who did know of it, knew that it was wholly unauthorized.
A telegram of inquiry to the Secretary of the Interior, early in the week, brought the expected reply that it should be disregarded. Nevertheless, while the survey was proceeding from the south, settlers had been persuaded to conform their holdings to the Seminole plat on Main Street and north; and when the Citizen's Committee survey had completed Grand Avenue and were proceeding to Main street, the residents of Main street entered a vigorous protest. For reasons it would be tedious to recount here, the two surveys were not identical, and to proceed on the line of the Citizen's survey would have been to dislocate all the settlements on Main Street and north.

Another telegram was sent to the Secretary of the Interior on Friday explaining the situation, and again the assurance was given that the Seminole Town Co. had no rights which the citizens should respect. The Committee of Fourteen held a meeting that night, and after a long discussion decided by a majority vote to proceed with the survey in the morning. But when the Surveying Corps attempted to resume its operations the next morning, it was met by a body of determined men – armed to, it may be added – who informed the Surveyors that the existing lines of Main St. must not be disturbed. The Committee of Fourteen immediately met, and after a brief discussion decided to call another mass meeting, and submit the matter to the whole body of citizens. This meeting was called in the same manner and for the same place as the one previously described, and in its excitement, and intensity of feeling greatly resembled it. The writer of this sketch was again called upon to preside; and it amuses him yet to remember that for many days after he was called on the streets, "Mr. Chairman" by hosts of men who didn't know his other name. After much discussion the meeting reached the moderate and sensible conclusion to have the South side name five men and the North five, the ten to constitute a committee to adjust and amalgamate the surveys if possable (sic) without disturbing possessary (sic) rights. The two sides retired in separate bodies and chose their men and then reassembled and ratified the nominations.

The men chosen were as follows: from the south side M. V. Barney, C. I. Scott – Jno. T. Voss – Jno. Wallace and C. P. Walker; from the north side, M. M Beatty – W. L. Couch – Moses Neal- A. C. Scott and James B. Weaver.

The meeting adjourned to reassemble at dusk and the committee was instructed to report at that time. It met at about four o'clock in the afternoon. The Engineer was called into consultation, and to make the story brief, it was decided that Main Street and all lying north should remain undisturbed, that the Citizen's Committee's survey from the south to and including Grand Avenue should stand, and that the extra space between Grand Avenue and Main Street should be divided into lots facing east and west. Anticipating a little, it may be said that all this was subsequently carried out, and it accounts for the "jog" at Grand Avenue going north and south, as well as for the long line of extra lots between Grand Avenue and Main Street. If these irregularities still exist in 2013 the residents in Oklahoma City, in that far distant day, may understand that they are the scars of that bloodless conflict which so disturbed the infant city on Saturday April 27th 1889.

The great assembly came together again at dusk, this time at the corner of Main and Broadway. Flaring torches did their best to dissipate the darkness, and revealed the faces of thousands anxious for a peaceful and reasonable settlement. The report was read amid profound silence. It was at once seen to be a happy solution for all concerned, and as the last words loft the reader's lips, a might shout succeeded the tense silence. When this had subsided, a preacher named W. P. Shaw, whose towering hight (sic) had made him a marked man throughout the week, and who had a mouth like the crater of Vesuvius  and a voice like the thunders of Sinai, slowly uplifted himself and stretching forth his arms of phenominal (sic) sweep, cried, let us sing "Praise God from whom all blessings flow" – and perhaps the great doxology was never sung more heartily.

It rained refreshingly that night and Sunday was another perfect day. Many religious services were held within the tented city, but the sound of the hamer (sic) and the saw was not completely stilled.
