Man Who Sold $300,000,000 Worth of Oil Leases Is Dead
Wo,7" S*ort*d Auctioneering fcjr Crying Sale Of Rick Osage Indian Lamm in 1012, Adopted es Osage
SKEDEE, Okla., Feb. 16.-(AP)-Col. E. Walters, 70, auctioneer known to thousands of the nation's oil men abd a life-long peace officer, died at his home late yesterday.
Walters began crying the sale of rich Osage Indian land
leases in 1912 at the Indian agency in Pawhuska, Okla., and
remained as auctioneer until a few years ago. It is estimated
that he induced oil men to spend roughly $300,000,000 for leases.
Walters had been in ill health for some time.
He was an adopted member of the Osage Tribe and had been given a jeweled U. S. deputy marshal’s badge.
Many of the tracts he sold were in the highly productive I urbank area and a. large part of them were sold under the million dollar oak tree” on the Indian agency grounds Scene of the sales was later moved.
One tract sold by Walters was purchased by the late Josh Cosden, then head of Cosden and Co., for $1,990,000.
Walters was born near Fort Gibson, Okla., in the old Indian Territory. His first name and initial “Col. E.” came from the fact that his father greatly admired Colonel Ellsworth, killed in the Civil War.
The father adopted the “Col. E.” as the son’s name.

Mott Amateurs Bog Down And End Up Getting Assistance of Mon Who Know How
Have you filed your income tax return?
Thai: March 15 deadline is just coming into view and many people here are getting around to doing something about it.
State and federal returns have some difference in exemptions permitted and the amateur can nave a lot of fun trying to work them out.
That is, if he isn’t one of the persons who can face almost anything else but is ‘buffaloed’ by any kind of tax form.
There are several accountants neie w’ho know their way through what to the ordinary fellow is a maze of regulations, and, given the figures, do the formful mg and compiling at a speed that amazes the watcher.
Then, too, there is one man working away in the treasury department room on the third floor of the federal building, with two men there on Saturday.
There dozens of people come daily waiting patiently for their turn to submit their information and have their returns filled deftly and quickly.
Uncle Sam has simplified the matter considerably in the last year or two bflt when it comes to joint or separate returns whose business it is to know how to make the returns out still have it on the average taxpayer in a big way.
