ABLE WHEN SOLD
Oklahoma City Okla.. Feb l'h
Homesteads of Creek Indians that
were inalienable and nontaxable for
twenty-one years become taxable when
sold alter restrictions have been re-
moved. This is the conclusion of Judg'
lUuumons of the supreme court coin-
mission in tin' case of the county com-
missioners of Muskogee county ui.j
.sought to collect taxes on lots that
had been a part of an allotment of this
sort. The collection was resisted by
1). X. Kink and others of that city.
Ia his. opinion deciding the a-e i:;
favor of the commissioners and up-
IioiJiug the tax Judge Hummons said:
Judge Rummons' Opinion.
"We are convinced that the purpose
of congress in exempting the home-
stead allotments of the Creek Tribe
from taxation and requiring the state
of Oklahoma in its constitution to give
effect to the exemption so granted
was solely for the protection of the
members of the Creek Tribe; that con-
gress intended by the supplemental
agreement to convey to the members
of the tribe homesteads which could
.- not be taken nun them lor me pa-j
inent of taxes. The constitute t.a! j
.'; provision of the state of Oklahoma
above quoted gives full effect to the
purpose of congress
j "Hut can it be said that whet; en::-
; -;re- determined that certain classes
of Creek citizens were competent to
i attend to their own affairs am! to
alienate their lands at will it aNo in-Ut-rnded
that such lands should continu
I ""to escape the burdens of government
a'ter they had passed from the hands
j o: the Creek citizen.-?
Lead to Discrimination.
' "Such a conclusion would lead t. the
greatest discriminat ion and in.iu.-tice
5 between citizens and would derogate
! from the power of taxation essentia!
to the maintenance of government that
; we do not think that the act of con-
) gress of May -7. lfluS is open to this
said by the
supreme court of the I'uited States.
th exemption from taxation of the
j l.uids of the Indians is a valuable
right; but is not the right to freely
'. alienate one's lands also a valuable
' "We think there can be no doubt
that it is a right of the highest value.
We think the intent of congress by
i that act was to say to the Creek ''''
j izeit we have given you lands which
i are non taxable for twenty-one year-:
' the exemption from taxation adds
value to your lands the restriction
J upon alienation impairs that value; we
will now offer you the privilege of un-
I restricted alienation but if you eiert
to avail yourselves of this privilege

INCOME TAXPAYERS ERR IN

said S'ate Auditor Howard yesterday
"for the rea.-on that there seems t'
be an impression that in making! up
their report the taxpayers should not
include in their taxable incomes divi-
dends received from banks and other
"This i.s a mi.-'aknn idea as these
dividends are not exempt from ihe
income of the taxpayers under the
state income tax law. The sta'e law
differs from the federal i that t!.e

New Indian Policy
Fur the first time -ince the govern-
ment assumed the guardianship of In-
dians and their property a definite
Indian policy has been announced in
Secretary Lane's declaration that tiie
purpose of tiie Indian Hun-an must lie
to equip all Indians lor full citizen-
ship and self government as fast as
possible. To this end. first steps have
already been taken towards turning
loose those of the Indian wards who
are now capable of administering their
own affairs and towards placing upon
a preparatory list those others who
may be considered competent within
the near future.
In the education of the Indians tiie
new aim is towards cuch academic and
vocational instruction as will fit Indian
boys and girls for the parts they must
play in life rather titan t) overtrain
and overediK at'- them unfitting them
fur u-e:'.'il work aiming taeir native

When co'iive'or tr.Tubied with con-
RtipatUn. take Chamberlain's Tablets.
They are easy to take and most agree
able in effect. Obtainable everywhere.
