THE INDIAN'S FUTURE.
Editor of thk Ciheftaim. It
may bo of little conscqucnco
to our readers but I utitik it tho
duty of every ti jo citizen who can
write not to bo diverted from tho
discussion of tho merits of this In
dian question. In tho considera-
tion of this great question you
need not say that I'm a person of
good or bnd repute whctlier I hnve
personal interests to be subserved
or whethor I'm untainted with
selfishness. If my arguments aro
sound they will have weight; if my
statement of facts arc correct they
will furnish information to all who
may read them nnd contributo in
some measure to a proper under
standing of tho question at issue
Tho time has como when
nsido from nil considerations of
humanity this vexed problem
must be solved. One thing is cer
tain tho United Stales government
through her constituted powers
and authorities extending her ad-
ministrative influences over moro
then 55000000 of white popula
tion teeming and surging withtho
mnd waves of immigration and
buoyant with tho spirit of progress
and enterprise cannot longer evade
tho responsibility of the question
wo have chosen to discuss. As a
means to tho end desired as a
means to tho accomplishment of
this grand consummation we know
of nono more important than that
tho government adopt and ndhero
to somo well defined policy hav-
ing for its object a final settlement
of the Indian question. Let that
policy be pre.o-'.neiiily juBt wise
atuS human that no political party
would daro to pull down what its
predecessors had built. Wo would
as speedily as possiblo place tho
Indian question outsido of tho pale
of party politics. The causo of hu-
man advancement is too sacred to
bo subject to tho mercenary ends
of political patronage. Tho im
mortal soul of man was never in
tended to bo used as political nier
cuanutso. now many will agrco
that so long as tho Indian requires
tho guardianship ot tho govern-
ment ho remaiiiB at least under
tho indirect influenco of political
parties. Wo believe that the gov
crnmonl can and ouL'ht to adopt n
firm settled policy based on peaco
founded on justice and having for
its object tho civilization progress
and advancement of tho IndianB
.and their incorporation into the
civil body politic with all tho
rights priviiigos anl immunities
duties and responsibilities of Amer-
ican citizenship. Tho sooner this

main in our country on simple
prima-fucie allowing. If they nro
allowed to remain in our country.
ami mnko farms by permission of
the interior department that de-
partment is guilty of doing tho
Cherokee Indians an injustice in
tho fnco of treaty provisions. A
low years ago our council created n
citizenship court to try tho rights
of claimants. Those tho commis
sion admitted YfirojiccqntetJ by
the- United States government or
nt IcnstSt Interposed no objection
to tho rights and privileges confer-
red upop tncin by the commission
but clahnanft th6drntrt rejected
sot up a howl about their pretended
rights and were allowed to remain
by tho agent. Now let us soo if
the court created then by our coun-
cil had tho right to try claimants
to citizenship in tho Chcrokco na-
tion. By treaty wo havo those
words: "Tho United States shall
secure to tho Chcrokco nation tho
right by thoir national councils to
mnko and carry into effect all such
laws ns they may deem necessary
for the government and protection
of tho persons and property within
their own country bolongtng to
their pcoplo or such persons ns
hnvo conncctul themselves with
them provided always that they
shall not be inconsistent with the
constitution of tho United Stntos
nnd such acts of congress as havo
been or may be pasuod regulating
trade and intercourse with tho In-
dians." Was tho creation of that
citizenship court inconsistent with
tho coustitution of tho United
States or any net of congress regu-
lating trado and intorcourso witli
tho Indians? I answer no. Tho
creation of that court was in ac-
cordance with a treaty provision
conferred wholly upon the Chero-
kee nation and by our government
not being allowed to exercise that
privilege docs not impair the treat
any in tho least. There is a con-
stitutional provision acknowledg-
ing all treaties mado between tho
United States government and any
foreign government or nation of
Indians to bo tho supreme law of
tho land. As a matter of policy it
would be much wisor and better in
both governments to adhere closely
to treaty. Tho Cherokee nation
commits almost a suicidal act by
submitting to the domineering
policy of the other government to-
Now a fow words in regard to
tho othor class of claimants to
citizenship: Probably the greatest
error our nation over committed or
over will commit was tho one al-
lowing the colored claimants to
citizenship livo here so long with-
out properly settling tho question
of thoir rights. Almost all of them
wcro owned hero prior to the war
as slaves by tho Chcrokco people.
Tho simplo fact of their beine
claimants to citizenship has given
opportunity for hundreds of other
negroes to drift in from tho Btatcs
and sot up the samo claim nnd
their number is continually in-
creasing. However tho citizen-
ship court lntoly created by our
council wo hopo will ultimately
ami finally settle this long nnd

of tho country was placed in our

could not accopt tho money if
tendered us for tho wholo bulk of

Then following that tho appropria-
tion was made of $300000 to bo

tion dated December 23. 1881. ask
ing for information on tho subject
wncn no says rno money was
on account of nil tho lands of tho
Chcrokccs west of tho Arknnsns
Ans. I hnd no connection with
the shaping of the letter nor tho
inquiry contained in tho resolu-
tion nnd consequently I don't
know what ncUated it but I do
know that tho statement is in con-
flict with the act of March 3 1833
as well ns tho terms of tho deeds
oxecutcd under that act nnd I
know further thnt tho letter you
rofer to wns submittod in tho cattle

which seemed to bo to wrest tho
land from tho Chcrokco notion
by E. C. Iioudinol as part of his
statement. Uccauso instead ol
making tho entire appropriation ns
recommended by tho secretnry

Sonntor Dawes for the npproprin-
non oi cowAAj wnicn wns sent
down to tho sccretnry of interior
by Senator Dawes as well as I re-
member asking his views on the
matter and in reply tho secretary
addressed a letter to tho chairman
of tho scnato appropriation com
mittee the wording of which I
can't remember exactly but was
something to this effect but if tho
view expressed in department let-
ter of January 18th wncn I recom
mend a sum sulhcient to pay for
tho whole tract of land west of 00
then I havo to say tho appropria
tion of tho sum of 8300000 in ad
dition to nmonnt nlrcady paid tho
Cherokee nation is not deemed to
bo in excess of tho value of tho
lands occupied. But if n nronosi
tion of that kind had been submit-
tod we could only havo Bubmitted
it to our national council with that
view understood the last clause.
But wo wcro specifically instructed
to accept not less than $1.25 for
the occupied lands.
Ques. You say tho secretary in-
tende1 that probably the govern-
ment might pay for tho whole
amount of land and recognizing tho
fact that wo could not accept the
money if tendered as for tho wholo
bulk of land. I will ask this do
you not consider the appropriation
bill of March 3rd 18S3 as such a
Ans. No I do not I havo a
letter of tho secretary of January
18th which contains a recommen-
dation for nn appropriation sufli-
cicntto pay the Cherokee nation for
the whole body in question that let-
ter was addrcssod to congress; but
seemed not acceptable to congress.

Pompey Williams was tho chief of

much more happy than now. They

Wo lived happily on our reserva-

on foot. Sometimes I would travel
all night walking through wood
and pralrio often miles and miles
away from any house. For many

with only tho food I might get on

his hole and following his burrow
