Since congress has adjourned
and Rev. V. A. Duucan president
of tho board of education lias
taken to writing five-column com-
ynumications to tho Advocato llro.
V -Ross is having a very pleasant
timo of it.
l'oon old Dead Head Koss; lost
his temper last week and sloppod
over to tho tune of a column and
nlmlf. This cobttho proprietors
of the Advocato tho Choro-
kecs something like twonty'-fivo
dollars enough to furnish bread
for our orphans for several days.
Amove is on foot in tho south-
eastern part of Kansas to arrango
for securing homes on the Quapaw
atrip. Tho plan is to organizo and
quietly nwait until congress opens
that country for soltlpnent whon
tho members propose to move over
nnd Btoko outthoir claims. Tho
tiact embraces 90.000 acres.
Tiieue is ua general complaint
among stock men that under our
present law thoy cannot bring in
cattlo from Texas and mabo them
live. All insist that tho timo
might with perfect safety bo ex-
tended from four to six weeks
and if this is so tho law should bo
changed. Let us give our people
every possible advantago so far as
legislation is concerned.
Does the editor of tho Advocato
wishjo bo understood a.9 claiming
that in employing a white man to
work on tho Ciiiektaix tho owners
of that paper arc taking an unfair
advantage? If this bo tho case
why dors ho not resign? Tho
nation has any amount of capable
gentlemen who aro equal to the
situation and who would fill tho
-placo with credit to thcmselvos
and tho papcrneither of which tho
present incumbent does.
WiiETHEit Mr. Ross and his
cliques are pleased with tho courso
of tho Chieftain or not is the
least of our concern Wo bolievo
Bincerely that tho people nre in
sympathy with the courso pursued
nnd so long as this is the enso wo
aro Fatigued. This beliof is found-
ed oil what is generally accoptcd
as conclusivo i-videnco viz: the
indorsement received. Our issue
of four weeks ago was on. March
10 and begining with that day we
have booked sixty-four new sub-
senbtrs' This is not "a dead-head
li-f but a lovafide paid up one and
nor .not include renewals. If this
may not reasonably be considered
a flattering indorsement we do
not know what to call it and if any
ono doubts tho statcmont and will
mako it known wo will publish
tho names and addressos.

The editor of tho Advocato
cbamclion liko shift tho coldr-
ing of hia Articles to .suit his vorsa-
tilo fancy. Ono issue makes nio(a
beast nnd tho ncxtpays' jho'tho
compliment of being rcispcclably
oonnccted. First ho is bold nnd
nggrcesivc then child-liko and
gcntloj ho sprinkles taffy all over
mo; says I am grandson to a good
man but loaves tho inferenco to
bo made that I jim a " dogonoratcd
sort of a noble siro." And why ?
Then ho'starts off on a sort of np-
pologctio strain to tho effect that
it may bo ignoranco on my part
after all and in n iuost obliging
tono Bays ho will enlighten mo and
my benighted friends Jy giving us
a complcto statcmont of tho wholo
proceeding with ' appropriate
comments of the editor of the Advo-
cate." All right: I am a.Chorokco
citizen by birth and education I
havo long ago learned tho wrongs
to which my . people havo been
subjected. I havo never had an
impulso other than to defend tho
lands I lovo and tho good namo of
my ancestry howovor olso tho
Advocate may put it. 1 am charg-
ed with a want of patriotism and
With havi'ig aided in any way on-
cronchments -pon tho rights of my
people Tlio only ovidonco of the
(ruth of tho assertion is that I havo
said that dishonesty should bo no
longer tolerated by a peoplo who
call themselves froo. With nil
duo respect for Mr. Ross and others
who have lived longor and ought
to be bottor informod I as
a freo man claim the right to
express a candid opinion even
Vhough that opinion might prove
incorroct in tho light of future-
o vents. But it ikos no great
amount of wisdom to know that a
large sum of money has gone by
questionable means from tho treas-
ury. The correspondent is in error
when ho states that the Chorokco
nation can afford to give 7 1-2 per
cont. in order to collect what the
government owes ns. No country
can afford to do anything of the
sort if it aspires to maintain respec-
tability boforc that government
with whom it is dealing and the
world. To havo paid that amount
as a corruption fund or for any
other purpose to Mr. Phillips
who was already heavily salaried
in order to get what was duo us
is not only a serious reflection
upon the government of tho United
States with whom wo must over
sustain special' relations but a
standing disgraco to that civilza-
tion of which I am proud. Now
who denies it? I-know woll onough
that tho record of the United
States government in its dealings
with tho Indians is far from im-
maculate It may bo admitted
criminal but in this caso at loast
thoro was no sort of use so far as
now appears in wasting tho large
amount of money to socuro the
payment; and tho man who is
responsible for tho evil is no long-
er fit to joproscnt this pooplo ns
an attorney or in any other
It is said by tho Advocato that
my associate is a "white man from
Kansas with no rights in tho coun-
try oxcept by tolorr.tion." Oh
dear; don't ho fling stones lively!
Hold on noighborl That is just
what tho people say of your
idolized Col. Phillips only that
ho ought not to bo tolerated at
all. Don't it diffur wonderfully as
to whoso ox is gored? Now that
my associate is on honest gentle-
man has novor been questioned
but tho case of tho Advocate's
mnn is subjudia.
In so far as Mr. Wolfo's courso
may bo construed as defending tho
rights of lliu Chorokco people to
transact their own business tho
Chieftain finds no fault; but in so
far a3 it may bo construed' as an
effort to cover tho villainy of
anybody it is square-toed against
him. We havo no hesitancy in
saying that in trying to defend our
right and ability of self gov
ernment Mr. Wolfo was in
a vory pitiablo plight with
such a story upon his lips as he
must necessarily toll if he tails
any tiling at all. lo say that a
peoplo aro capable and havo a
right to self government who wil-
lingly suffer themselves robbed by
tho duplicity of nn agent is a sad
comment upon their common scuso
Tho Advocato spoaks flippantly
of "tho proud Chorokco nation"
nnd its "freemen" To rail a peo-
plo who would submit to such an
outrago "proud and freo" is a
sllly flattery. But tho peoplo aro
not submitting to it nnd Ihcy never
will Thoy feol that their Bolf-rc-spectrmd
manhood nro appealed
to in strong terms. And if the
Advocate will even at Ibis latq hour
lay tho facts boforo tho people wo
feel surof that everybody will see
tho point and the Chieftain will
havo accomplUbod its aims. I do
not think any sortofcomrnonts by
i the Advocate will conceal Iho facts
at issue in lite meantime wo
shall confidently expect tae jip-
iko"v of fill thp "frerynen." fn the

Kuitoiis Chieftain: The fact
that acominishioners will be sent by
tho UnitcdStates government to
this and othor nations of tho territo
ry to negotiate for the purchase of
land is now well known through-
out tho country. When they will
came is not positively known but
it will probably bo somo timo dur
ing the summer. Tho mattorls of
so much consequence lo the Indians
concorned that if thoro is to be
any deliberation upon it the sooner
tho discussion is opened the better.
For this reason tho following oh-
sorvation3 are submitted at this
time in regard to the subject:
The immediate cause of this
particular negotiation is known to
be the difficulty of koeping intrud-
ers from tho little tract of country
called Oklahoma. Rathor than
having 'to undergo the continual
and increasing trouble of ojocting
largo bodies of troipassers with
the risk ever present of a collision
and bloodshod congross has
thought best to buy the threntonod
lands outright nnd let the hordes
of land piratos in under tho order
of immigrants. The title to tho
lands however is in tho Indian
tribes that havo patents which are
invulnorablc to more nets of con-
gress. Having sold the land onco
thero is nothing left tho govern-
ment but to buy it back again if it
(the government) wants it and tho
fust thing to be done is to agree
with the owners as to price.
Now who aro tho owners?
Jf tho owner of tho Chorokco
lands 18 tho Chorokoo nation as n
body politic then the national
council may fix upon tho price
but if the ownors aro the Cherokee
peoplo then a general convention
will have to bo called and tho senso
of tho peoplo taken upon tho
Again; .tho constitution of tho
nation (Art. 1. Sec. 1.) describes-
and declares what the Cherokco
country shall ho and remain as
"common nronertv." It mav bo
asked whotlior tho national council
can altor tho boundaries of tho
nation without amending the con
stitution or calling a general con-
vention for the purpose
After settling tho point in rogard
to what nuthority is empowered to
nnswor for tho wholo nation or
peoplo in regard to tho price thoy
will tako for tho laid tho noxt
question will bo whether it will be
best to sell or not or will it bo
best to allow each citizen his share
of that land according to treaty
with tho privilcgo pf selling for
himself or not as ho may choose.
A great many may rather havo tho
land than tho money or thoy may
think thoy can mako a better bar-
gain fbr.thcmselycsthan tho nation
can for them

excuse for offering to glvo us tho
amount tho lands were apprftisod at
in 1870 viz.: -1710 cents per aero
such being tho valuation of tlio
lands at that ttmo as designated for
uso ns Indian reservations. But
tho commissioners who mtdo that
nppraisoiiiont dcclaro that it was
cut down ono-half in viow of such
design and that thoy appraised it
nt double that sum. Had tho land
been intended for general settle-
ment after purchase tho United
StntoscommifcBionors would hardly
havo tho conscionco to offer less
than twice 47.'19'eontr. per aero or
at least 03 cents per acre for tho
entire tract now that the intention
is openly profossed to scttlo it with
whites nt once. But oVcn that
figuro is too small considering tho
increaso in tho vnluo of pnsturo
land during tho past nino years.
It is not too much to say that
such lands havo doubled in vnluo
during that period nnd that tho
Chcrokocs ought to get at least
81.50 net per aero for tho wholo
tract which would amount to
about $9000000 and still bo loss
than tho amount which a certain
English company has paid or
