Kansas City Daily Gazette, 13 Oct 1892
CHICAGO, Oct. 13.-
Zack Mulhall, of Mulhall, I. T., connected with the stock department of the Santa Fe road, says: "The Cherokee strip is now free of cattle from one end to the other, for the first time since white men visited that country, and it will probably remain so. Boomers have burned all the grass, so there would be no show there for cattle this winter, even should any attempt to return. According to what has been said, the government wants to throw it open for settlement next spring, but that won't affect cattlemen. They don't want any more Cherokee strip, especially when there is only about half of it worth anything, and that will be crowded by settlers."
