claimed that the bill violated In the moit
flagrant manner the rights of thCbero-
keo Nation. Th Cherokee Nation it wa
claimed la far enough advanced In civil-
ization to carry on their affair. Count.!
aldi "The Cherokee Nation was o far
advanced In civilization that a
early at the treaty of Hopewell It
wa given th right to nd a
deputy to the Congren at the Unltsd
States and wh.n tbpy left tbelr boms In
Georgia they left behind thtm cultivated
fields and well (toCksd plahtatlbns. It
wai no tnftlng comlderatlon that passed

bad been taken from ths Cherokee lands

tically conflicate theselandtr Ths Chero-
kee Nation can now sell 0000000 acres ot
thl land at (3 fer acre. Thl sura can bs
realized for It at ones. Why should th
Nation not receive It valuef Why tliould
twd-thlrdiot til valuable leiM H given
to ths people ot the United Sidles! "
Referring to ths grazing Interests of th
Cherokee Nation ths counsel saldt "No
sans man can seriously contend that tbsrs
Is any thing Immoral or contrary to th
welfare ot tbs people of the United States
In leasing land to graze cattls upon. Even
a vegetarian would not consider It Im-
moral to permit cattle to lire or allow thtm
to graze on the prairies of tb Indian coun-
try. But In addition to thl the section
not crdy declares the leaie void rr-V It
dlrocL the execatlve to carry into execu-

Is not legislation nor Is Itconcelvable that

mit ll execution. Ths sola purpois of the

to accept th provldon ot lection 0."
