A Washington dispatch statos
that Congressman O'Neill and J.
Milton Turner had an interview
with Indian Commissioner Atkins
last Friday with refcrenco to tho
Chorokco monoy. Mr. Atkins told
thorn tho claim of tho frocdmon to
shnro in tho distribution was man-
ifestly just. Ho said that he would
havo a bill drafted to cover tho
enso. Mr. Turner has arranged
with Representative Halo of Mis-
souri who is on tho committco on
Indian nfGtfrc to introduco the
measure at onco. A statcmuit has
been proparcd showing tho number
of persons who were ignored by
tho Cliciokco nation in tho divis
ion of tho $300000. Only Chcro-
kecs by blood received tho per cap-
ita allowance and this left out of
consideration tho following. Ne-
groes 1907 entitled to S30.-120.-10;
Shawnecs 503 entitled to 77-lG.-20;
Delawarcs G72 entitled to 810-
3-18.80; whites 1032 entitled lo
$15892.80; aggregate SO-1403.20.
Mk Ti. B. ir:i.rs rei tecs be-
fore tl houso committco on terri-
tories has won for him considera-
ble public notice and deservedly so.
Mr. Hell's wit may not bo purely
Attic but it was put in in such a
way that its plainness and truth-
fulness had more effect than had it
been nioro clogant or classical.
His quick witty rejoinders found
proper occasion for uso nnd doubt-
less did moro good than an elabo-
rate argument of hours in which
a presentation of all tho merits of
Indian rights as arc defined by
treaties laws of congress and de-
cisions of tho supremo court is
elegantly done. It wan tho busi-
ness of that committco to under-
Etsr.d first the grounds upon which
they woro proceeding and to ac-
quaint themselves as to what rights
they wcro infringing upon. This
thoy certainly did and from tho
tenor of Mr. Springer's questions
it appears that but littlo or no at-
tcntation was going to bo paid to a
knowlcdgo of such facta. This
being tho case Mr. Bell's wit was
moro at point than any labored ar-
gument ho could havo mado or a
summing up of tho troatics laws
and supremo court decisions that
authorize defino and protect tho
Indian in his rights.
Tne Arkansas City Traveler in
discussing tho Indian question
quotes tho opinion and recommen-
dation of Gen. Sheridan upon tho
subject. Sheridan is a good gen-
eral and fightcr.but shows too much
the disposition of a commander
and not a bit of a legislator who
regards tho laws ho helps to make.
Boing what ho is and used to com-
mand ho carries himself into his
recommendations regardless of tho
civil rights of a people. To allot
320 acres of land to tho heads of
families and to soil the balance
for tho benefit of tho Indians ib as
much an outrage upon thorn as it
wtfnld bo to allot an equal number
of acres to the largo land holders
of Kansas and to dispose of tho
balance for their benefit. Gen.
Sheridan docs not seem to know
that nil families aro not equal in
number and that in tho distribu-
tion of property equally groat
injustico would bo done somo
whilo othors would bo benefited.

Having donled that thoro was an
appraisement of western lands at
all Col. Phillips is reducpd to tho
necessity of giving another exhibi-
tion of his surprising agility In es-
caping from ono falsehood to an-
other eo fast that he cannot bo
caught in any. Tho following
question was put lo him:
"What is your understandinc of
tho languago of tho secretary of tho
interior when ho say? in a state
ment 'an lancis' in response lo a
resolution from tho United Slates
senate asking for information
"My answer" said ho "is that
ho mado no uch statement."
"Ail lanus" aro rolcrrea lo in
tho question of tho committee and
tho words used in Secretary Tel
ler's report to tho senate known
as oxocutlvo document nineteen to
appriso tho . jnato that for no par
ucuiar tracts ol land hau money
been paid tho Cherokee nation
but that tho sums had been advan
ced upon "all landa"asawholo ly
ing west of tho Arkansas river and
that thcro had been but ono ap
praisement. Such doubtless is
tho meaning of tho secretary's re
Boforo tho committco was not
tho first timo Phillips denied tho
authenticity of executive document
nineteen. It was a dospcrato ex
pouiont at tno start but thcro was
no other way of escaping tho dam
nine condition in which it
placed him and his accessories
by reason of tho statement ho had
made tho council in relation to tho
$300000 transaction. Having dis
covered no other expedient that
would just'fy his statement better
than out and out denial ho holds
tho fort manfully by sticking to it.
Bluff is his game with those who
oppose liiin and wounded innocenco
and lachrymose emotion with
his friends whom he melta into ex-
pressions well befiting a class meet
ing. Tho cxportness witfi winch
ho docs this entitles him to somo
kind of admiration and shows
a versatility of talent that befits
him for almost anything. He
handles his cards with no inexper-
ienced hands in playing bluff with
his enemies and in holding a death
grip on his accomplices who cling
to him with a tenacity that noth-
ing seemingly can shake I0030.
A denial of tho authenticity of
document nineteen seems to bo an
undc tood arrangement between
him and others. But what con
possess them to do this is a conun-
drum not within tho range of so-
lution or sensible expedients since
tho document has been affirmed
and reaffirmed by tho present sec-
retary of tho interior and sont un-
der seal nnd certificate a3 evidence
to the investigating committee of
our council. Then in tho name of
common senso nnd a duo respect
for the truth what docs tho man
moan. That his prostigo was once
groat among tho Chorokco people
including all classes it cannot bo
deniod. But if it was upon tho
strength of that that ho comes out
and flatly denies that Mr. Teller
as secretary of tho interior made
such a statement ho presumed
just a littlo too much upon a rep
utation that was Jlottcring to its
fall. His denial of this fact was
another agent set to work to sap
its foundation. Ho could not ex-
plain in a way consistent with
what ho himself had 6aid nbout
tho lands and ho was forced to
tako tho bull by tho hornB and
deny that which is nn accepted
fact by tho people.
Ho is not alone in this matter.
Thcro aro others who havo as
stoutly denied document ninotcen
as being tho report of Secrotary
Teller. Somo havo gono so far
as to denounco tho papor as tho
product of dosignlng persons upon
tho character and reputation of
Phillips and others in this nation
and havo succeeded in making
many beliovo such a Billy refugo
from detection. A desperate dis-
caso requires deeperato remedios
and this boing a cholera case a
heroic treatment of bluff chock
and falsehood had to he adminis
TERRITOItT OF OKIiAHOMA.
The crop of bills to organize tho
territory of Oklahoma has seldom
horotoforo been as plentiful as at
present. The Choctaw Chicka-
saw Sominplo and Crock delega-
tions aro wrestling with No. 316
and Mr. L. B. Bell boing- In Wash-
ington on privato business was also
in tho ''ho-muck." A printed copy
of their objections has been receiv-
ed which present about tho same
grounds heretofore bo often fought
over by former delegations against
similar measures. It is almost
impossible lo produce anything
new .in opposing territorial bills as
every species of argument upon
this subject has been exhausted
years ago and all that can be dono
now is to bring forward tho old
atrippod of verblajjo as Sullivan to
the buff when ready for tho ring.

UNITED STATES OOUIITS
Tho necessity of such a court
somowhoro In tho Indian Territory
was anticipated by tho contracting
parties of tho treaty of 18G0. Tho
extent of its jurisdiction la not cir-
cumscribed except in such cases
civil and criminal in which mem-
bors of the nation native or adopt-
ed aro tho only parties. Its juris-
diction otliorwiso is to bo pro-
scribed by law tho law of con-
gross creating tho court. Tho na-
tional council has often Instructed
tho delegation to ask for a fulfill-
ment of tho treaty in this respect
although by many it is rogardod as
a sort of a Trojan horso. Tho con-
sent of our nation boing pledged to
ito establishment it cannot offer
any reasonablo objection to Sena-
tor Vest's bill or any other bill
that docs not intorforo with tho
jurisdiction of our courts or that
does not exceed tKo privilcgo stip-
ulated for tho simpio establish-
ment of such a court. Tho trial of
civil as well as criminal casos
arising between a citizen of the
United States and a citizen of tho
nation can bo consislcnty placed
under tho jurisdiction of the court
as thoro is no law for tho trial of
such caBco in this nation and per
haps not in tho territory. No hon
est man can havo any reasonable
objection to paying his honest
debts and thoso who aro not hon-
est enough to willingly pay such
ought to bo mado to do so. A
court with such jurisdiction there-
fore cannot bo reasonably objected
to by honest people But tho ne-
cessity of such a law is anothor
thing and can only bo necessary
to tho extent that there is a de
mand for it in tho country. A half
century of trade ana intercourse
between whites and Indians has
hardly proven a demand for such
a law as far as tho Indian himself
is concerned. Honesty has been
the only bond for tho fulfillment of
contracts between him and his
white non-rosidont neighbor and
thoro has been but littlo or no room
for complaint against such security.
Perhaps not anothor inslanco of
tho kind can bo found anywhere
whoro thcro has boen such a vast
amount of trado and trust between
two people tho whites of the
states nnd Indians of tho Indian
Territory without some law com
pelling tho fulfillment of obliga
tions. But such is tho fact and
such business relations still go on
under tho old rigime of honest and
mutual confidence without inter
ruption. Exceptions thcro aro
doubtless to tho general rulo and
if but one instance it is enough to
justify tho enactment of such a law.
Security is what tho world of
traffic wants and must havo in or-
der to be healthy and vigorous in
all its relations and is just tho
condition any nation needs to bo
prosperous. If times can be mado
better and relations securer no
reasonablo objection can be cntor-
tained againBt a court In tho terri-
tory with civil as well as criminal
In tho lino of accommodation
there is nothing stranger than tho
erection of a United States court
in tho Indian Territory if the pun-
ishment for crime nearer home can
bo considered such. A likeness
would not suffer if for tho benofit
of tho human raco hell or a de-
partment of it was placed on oarth
rather then havo sinnors taken to
a foreign country to bo tried and
roastod for their Bins.
Tub bill to extend civil jurisdic
tion of tho United Stales courts
over this country in causes arising
between citizens and non-citizens
has been reported favorably by tho
house judiciary committee Its
passago by both branches of con-
gress seems probablo.
It HKHMa that tho delegations
from tho torritory to Washington
aro nicotine questions of Indian
rights bravely. Tho Chorokco na
tion has hereloforo stood in the
front and fought for tho rights of
all when many of tho tribes had
no delegations in Washington.
Now she rosts from her labors in a
sort of a dolcefar nicnte and plac-
idly looks on whilo tho othors en-
gage in a froo fight. 'Th well per-
haps that it is as it is bocauso u

When tho Ohorokeea sent del-
egates to Washington in 1832 thoy

When tho dologatcs of 18S3 re
turned thev said thov had undia
putahlo proof that we did owo tho
government $33159.5 but when
somo of their constituents wero
challenged for tho proof thoy said
"Wo may owo tho amount; the
records at Washington had become
so mixcu up as to clvo them a
chance to claim it." When coun
cil met last November thcro was
an investigation committco ap-
pointed to see into this matter and
they reported that thoy had proof
Bumcicut io convinco any candid
mind that wo did owo tho govern
ment eiM-i.oyi. At tho samo timo
thoy asked council that when tho
delogatos wcro appointed they be
instructed to investigate this mat-
tor when they go to Washington.
Now if this committee established
beyond a doubt that wo did owo
tho government why should they
request that tho delegation bo in-
structed to investigate tho matter?
No wo do not owo tho govern-
ment a cent. The whole movo is
just to get tho country soctionized
and the Fooner our people wako up
to this fact the better for them.
Thcro aro vory few of tho Chcro-
koes in favor of ecctionizinc. It is
just a fow half-breeds. They im-
agino thoy can swindlo tho un-
thinking class out of their horac3
by tolling them thoy could sell
thoir lands for fifteen or twenty
dollars an acre; "Just tho moment
I get deod3 to my lands I can sell
to whom I pleaso." When this
country is scctionized it forover
doos away with tho Cherokee na
tion l am opposed to it. I lovo
my country and noonlo. I am
proud that Cherokee blood courses
through my veins. Thoy say:
"What shall wo do with tho In-
dian?" That is not tho nucstion:
it is: What can wo do to get what
miio land wo havo Jelt him with-
out killing him? If tho Indians
had received $1.25 per acre for all
tho lands that havo been taken
from them thoy would bo the
wealthiest pooplo on earth. The
white man lias dono moro for tho
Indian than ho can over pay for.
Thoy gavo us tho word of God and
havo won thousands of our pcoplo
to Christ. Every whilo man who
has labored for tho salvation of the
Indian has boen givon a handsorao
support as long as ho lived. Thoy
did not ask us to givo them our
homes for what thoy had done.
They felt that thoy woro doing
what God required of them. All
that God requires of tho Indian is
to do not only what thoso men told
them but to read His word and
follow its precepts. Ho did not
tell tho apostles to go and preach
and to teach tho heathen and then
to cheat him out of his homo.
.An tnat wo asic is to let us re
Lmain as wo aro. Wo cannot help
ylbut aeknowledco that tho whito

and everything we get in tho way

and wo aro glad to havo him como
