To the loyal, patriotic citizens, Greeting:
In view of the fact that the government

by tlw close of tine fiscal year„the remov-
al of the restrictions and < settlement
tnade with the five clviliz d tril\s by the
ieer<*t%-y of the interior, thus fully pre-
paring the said country for a form of
•elf-government at the said Juncture; and
Ihe tribal relations cease by sanction of
the several treat!'s otf March 4, 1*«; ant?
It Is not American or equitable nor nee- I
essary to longer govern the aforesaid I
country, wholly by !V*derul government. '
s at pre*, nt,, which <:s necessary In the i
Imously favor and #ft>k wparate, prohibi-

privileges allowed by existing and Inevit-
able treaties; and.
When is, no form of.precedure for the
grp.iniz it Ion c«f new states is prescribed
by the United States constitution, or by
fchy law of congress, each case has been
t«>s!th with as It presented itself. In some
cases congress has taken*the Initiative
by the passage of enabling acts; In others
the movement has originated with the
people of the proposed, state, and con-
gress h s. by appropriate acts, accepted
and ratified the constitution and state
government proposed. Thirty-two new
States have been added to the original
thirteen. In the cases of Vermont. Ken-
lucky, Tennessee. Michigan. Arkansas,
Florida, Iowa, California and Oregon,
there were no enabling acts. In the case
of Nevada a constitution was formed
without any enabling act but wa
