A brisk rain -last Sunday night
followed by a mUty cloudy Mon-
day foronoon brought to mind tho
circumstances which destroyed tho
fair last year and tho hopes of
many werolowty than tho barom-
eter. About noon howevor Old
Sol peaked tli rough tho clouds
and tho mud began to disappear
as rapidly as it was produced.
Tuesday tho oponing day tho
attendance was not so very small
but a great many persons got into
tho grounds over tho stables and
nihcrwiso without paying. As a
consequence tho receipts wero
much less than usual. By Wed
nesday many ot tho defects of tho
previous day had been ob viatod and
ilio managers had affairs in porfect
control. As a result tho associa-
tion's receipts for tho day wero
tho greatest in its history of seven
years. Thursday waB another
reasonably good day (financially)
but a heavy south wind modo it
unpleasant and probably deterred
Bomo of tho town pooplo from go-
ing out. And (ho wind did more
than that : It proventcd th. bal-
loonist from making his ascent and
thereby disappointed many who
had hoped to see tho novelty.
An attempt wns made to inflate
tho balloon upon tho previous
evening but at that timo tho wind
was also too strong.
The art hall was more crowded
than over beforo and it seemed
upon n casual inspection as though
the various exhibits wero Buporior
in character to those- of former
years. This was the J caso as to
both fancy needle work etc and
fruits preserved and otherwise.
Tho livo stock classes wero rep-
resented very well but particular-
ly as to horses. In this department
tho display was certainly excel-
lent far surpassing former years.
As to racej horsos there was no
comparison cither numerically or
in quality. After a reasonably
fair number of flyors had been re-
corded last week two cars arrived
by special train upon tho Frisco
Monday morning from Fort Smith.
This swelled the number of really
fast horses to near fifty embracing
trotters runners and pacers.
The races woro conducted undor
tho personal supervision of the di-
rectors and if tho president Col.
Bell mimed even a heat thn fact
was not recordod. Of course there
was 6ome growling among Jho race
men but by fair and firm rulings
tho association settled all differ-

THAT 876000 APPROPRIA-
TION. Just as tho sins of tho falhors
aro visited upon thoir children to
tho third and fourth generations
bo it seoniB that tho iniquity of
that $300000 appropriation by con-
gress of which tho "coons" woro
denied a per capita share is driv-
ing its chickdns home to roost.
Without questioning tho right of
congress to appropriato monoys of
the Cherokee nation for any pur-
poso which it has not if our
right of sclf.govemmont is not to
bo interfered with upon almost
any excuso it is evident that tho
question of citizenship must be de-
termined as toMiundrods of colored
people who claim Chorokco rights
undor the treaty bofore a distri
bution can take place. It would
be an act ot criminal injustico on
part of tho government of tho
United States to pay out this mon-
ey to all colored residents of tho
country who claim nalivo Choro-
kco rights without first determin-
ing tho status of those who are
not acknowledged citizens.
The question of citizenship ta-
ken in all its bearings is by far
moro important and burdened
with greater interests to tho Chor-
okee peoplo than tho lease or oth-
erdisposition of our grazing lands.
As far as thoso who claim citizen-
ship by tho right of Chorokeo de-
scent aro concerned a final and
complete determination of tho
question seems to ho near at hand
tho authority to do bo being in the
Chorokco nation but as far as tho
colored peoplo who claim nativo
Cherokee rights under tho treaty
are interested the question has
beenono of indefinite determina-
tion bocauso tho nation ha3 boon
denied tho right by the govern-
ment of the United States to mod-
dlo with it. Tho government
seomB to never have been in any
hucry to tako up tho issue but
has let it rock along until it has
become bo complicated that it
will take no littlo time and careful
investigation to determine who aro
justly entitled to participate in tho
8o000 appropriation. How long
colored claimants to Cherokoe citi-
zenship arc to remain as mero res-
idents of the country without de-
fined rights thoro seems to bo no
chanco for determination except in
caBoof Bomo ovent which would
requiro such action as would set-
tlo tho question of their claims to
citizenship. Not only as far as citi-
zen rights aro concerned such an
evnt is calculated to settle but
rights to lands and moneys also.
No nation can oxist in poaco with
the status of any class of its mom-
bers undetermined whether little
or much importance may bo at-
tached to any inequality of rights
but should bo clearly understood
and established in law. This act
of congress unjust and arbitrary
as it may scorn must necessarily
bring about such action on part
of the government as will deter-
mine finally and forovcr all dif-
ferences of right among tho citi-
zens of tho Cherokee nation. It is
better that it bo so rather than to
exist in tho midst of disputed
rights and a continual wrangle
In many respects tho beneficial
results arising from a settlement
of these difference will bo fwlt.
Our political atmosphere will be-
come clearer olection frauds less
possiblo and tho manngemont of
our affairs casior when the polit-
ical and material rights of all are
clearly defined. This is what tho
act of congress in making an ap-
propriation of 875000 of tho na-
monoy to equalizo tho per
yjoent of 1883 is cnlcu-
d must necessarily
erdor that thoso on-
participate in tho
BEATS A THOMAS OAT.
The proverbial nlno lives of a
cat aro no where in comparison to
the vitality ot a Chorokco law.
It may bo doad for fivo years pro-
nounced doad by natural causos
but when occasion requires it can
bo brought back to life and mado
to porform duty as though It was
a thing of immortality. A civil
law at that possesses this wonder-
fill vitality. As generally accepted
and t as sometimes happens a
criminal law superceded for
somo definite timo by tho
substitution of another becomes
again operative A repealing
clauso it may bo said is not a
part of the one to enduro for acor-
laln poriod in such cases. Tho
most acercditod commentators
scorn to only ascrlbo such a
a principlo to such laws for tho
prevention of crime giving as a
roason that tho stato should not
bo without such a law.
Tho collection of a tax on cattlo
grazing on the outlet under tho
law that was repealed fivo years
ago cannot consistently bo re-
cited as authority for so doing
even if it is now operative as somo
of tho legal heads of thn country
maintain unless collection of
such tax was mado in accordance
with tho specifications of tho act
so much on the head for certain
lengths of timo.
If the trcasuror claims the law
as his 'authority ho certainly has
no right to amend the law so as to
accommodate it to the $175000
offer of tho prosent lessoos. The
moro consistent course if he claims
that law as his authority would
bo to bo govorncd by tho law in
all respects and not by such parts
ofit as may most contributo to
his interests. If because
of tho lack of any special authori-
ty and becauso of the necessity to
assume that wh! ii may bo termed
personal or extr. -onicial in tho col-
lection of a consideration for a
valuable privilego he has entorcd
into an agreement with tho old
lessees and received pay for a fur-
ther lease of three months at tho
rate of 8175000 per annum it
would bo much better to tako the
bull by the horns and Bay ho had
let tho consequences be what thoy
may. It would bo much better
likewise not to claim that tho
treasurer is tho financial agent of
the country and that ho can oxer-
cise powers without the- special
authority of law in all questions
of revenue of which ho has super-
vision and may adopt such meas-
ures to incrcaso the income as ho
may deem necessary but only "as
provided by law."
THE LATEST PROCLAMATION.

To all whom it may concern ; es-
pecially tho Chcrokeo Strip Livo
Stock association and sub-lessoes
on the lands of tho Chcrokeo na-
tion west of tho Arkansas river:
In a former proclamation I no-
tified you that I would at a cer-
tain timo and under a cortain law
and a contract entered into be-
twean D. W. Bushyhoad while
principal chief and tho Chorokeo
Strip Livo Stock association de-
mand the surrender of all tho im-
provements mado on said lands by
said association. I mado such de-
mand through Messrs. Ridgo Pas-
chal and C. II. Harris and was
scarcoly treated with respect.
Now being informed by Hon.
R. B. Ross treasurer that he has
mado a contract with Ed Hewin
president of tho Chcrokeo Strip
Live Stock association to rcnow
tho grazing privilego at the rate
of 8175000 per annum for the pe-
riod of throo months October No-
vember and December which
8175000 was tho bid offered the
national eouncil at its last session
by tho Cherokee Strip Livo Stock
association and now since Mr.
Ross has received this revenue at
tho rate of 8175000 per annum for
the grazing privilege while to my
personal knowledge an assess-
incnl was made by the association
ontlielandsat the rate of four conts
on tho aero por annum and that
said assessment states that it is to
pay ducB to the Chcrokeo nation
for the grazing privilego for the
months of October November and
Decembor as shown in publishod
resolutions of tho association of
September 18 1888 I wish to no-
tify you as I have heretofore noti-
fied R. B. Ross trcasurcrthat any
transaction that ho may mako of
tho kind in taking this important
business out of the hands of the
national council would not only
be unlawful but unjust to tho
Cherokee peoplo. I stated to Mr
Ross that thero might possibly
arise an cmergenoy by which tho
stock grazing on said lands might
remain until tho mooting of tho
national council and tho ro venue
collected for tho month of Octobor.
Even that would bo without au-

Editor Chieftain : Tho ques-
tion has been a- vd by several of
my neighbors if Bob Ross had any
ngnt to leaso tho Chorokco strip
and if so by what right. Also if
ho had a right why did ho not try
to get tho most money for it. Can
you answer thoir questions?
From my observation ho as
well as many others of his party
(I will not say all bocauso .among
tho masses I know of many Na-
tional men that favor tho chief's
policy to obtain tho most money
fortheir grars) but among the
leading men of tho National party
they have tried by every means to
drive everyone away that wantod
to bid for the privilego of grazing
on the public lands of tho Chcro-
kees west of9fl.

Now this forces tho quostion on
the minds of tho public : What
causo havo they for doing so 7 It
is plainly seen that everyone that
has como hero to bid for tho abovo
stated privilego has been treated
by them with contempt nftd the
late procl.tma Hon of tho secretary
of tho interior has been blown
around in tho Indian Arrow as an
ordor to tho chief to not lease

gate tho uattor. Why wero the
pets of tho National party tho
Chorokeo Strip Livo Stock associa-
tionso anxious to leaso it after
this order as they aro plcasod to
call it was issued ? Thoy did not
socm to bo afraid. They know
that it amounted to nothing; only
a scarecrow gotten up for tho pur
poso of keeping biddors away but
it did not scaro tho crow bocauso
there aro two companies that wish
to bid $200000 and upwards yet.
If thoy had desired to got tho
most monoy for tho peoplo why
why are they ovorlastingly getting
up something to try to dopreciato
tho valuo 7 Again Mr. Robt.
Ross know that tho men having
and owning stock on iho strip had
been assessed by this corrupt com-
pany known as tho C. S. L. S. as-
sociatlon one cent per aero for
threo months making 8G0.000.
What right had Mr. Ross to deal
with this company now dead as
far os that strip is concerned and
let them mako 810250.00 tho dif-
ference between 843750 collected
by Mr. Ross from tho strip compa-
ny and $GO000 collected by it
from tho owners of tho cattlo on
tho rango? Can it bo possiblo
that Mr. Ross is speculating on
his own pcoplo ? I hopo not but
what am I to think when Ed.
Hewin sworo boforo tho senate
committco HibI thoy had 500000
cattlo on tho rango 7 Will
someono figure that out at 40 cents
per head and mako that less than
$200000 por year. Now I claim
that Mr. Ross had no moro right to
leaso than any other citizen. But
for argument sake admit ho had.
If ho had done his duty by his
pcoplo ho would have dealt with
tho men holding cattlo on tho
rango and not with a Kansas com-
pany that wero speculating in
Chcrokeo grass. Ho could have
got tho $G0000 as well as tho
abovo named company and Bavcd
to tho peoplo that ho pretomh to
roprcscnt $1G2.'50 for throo months

lures on tho strip instead of going
sccrolly to Kansas City and deal-
ing with men for speculation.
Now fellow citizens you that
havo noticed this thing from tho
beginning from tho offor of $125;.
000 up to tho present timo ; you
that aro only tho people; you that
aro not fed al tho public crib
what do you think of wisdom and
patriotism of tho National leaders?
You know if they had their own
way at tho start $125000 would
bo tho sum paid for the finest
grazing privilego' in tho world.
This is a big assertion but it is
truo. Thoro cannot bo found in
tho world such a picco of grass
convenient to market as that of
tho Chorokoo strip ; and yet the
National party aro dutcrmined to
lot tho present association havo it
for loss than its valuo.
In regard to Secretary Vilas'
loiter it is nothing more than
other secretaries havo dono boforo
notify anyono wanting to leaso
that tho right of tho United States
must not bo intorfcrod with nnd
should they tho Unitod States
would dcclaro them void.
sIn other words if tho United
States wants to settle friendly In-
dians thoro thoy intend to do so
m per agrcomont with tho Chcro-
kecs. This is tho amount of this
bug-a-boo 'sounded so loudly by
tho National organ tho Arrow.
You that feel alarmed about Hub
thing ploaso read Socrctary Toi-
ler's letter and seo what ho says
about tho grazing mattor. Again
if thoso National patriots want to
do tho best they can for tho pco-
plo is it becoming in them to bo
forever throwing something out to
discourago bidders? Tho sum to-
tal is this" with then. - you
ticklo mo and I'll ticklo you."
It has been shown clearly and
cannot bo doubted that it was
promisod to them by that party
bofore tho olection ehould-thcy be
succosBful. Thoy havo contended
for tho Stock association )against
tho interest of the Chcrokeo pcoplo
ever sinco and now they go to the
