Am communications those days

thoso circumstances they may fall
"by the way-sidc. If you can't in
vtrtiJt or enlighten anybody don't
print. Wo all know about postcrl-
ty and tho interests of tho Chcro-
kco people and patriotism and
all that sort of thing and tho edu-
cational system is likewiso well
understood. What is wanted is
more practical common-senso cor-
respondthec and les's "rot."
Theue deems to bo eomo com-
plaint that The Chieftain is
hardly Downing enough but its
readers ought to know that while
tho paper is not a political sheet
its columns aro used for political
purposes not only by tho Down-
ing party but by tho National
likewiso. Tiiis is a privilege ex-
tended to all on equal terms un-
dor tho rules of com -non dcccncv. It
would neither be fair nor manly to
attack or condemn a person for
something and then refuse him the
means of defending himself or of
refuting tho chftrgo. Our political
religion is not of that character
and if you want to preach in our
church you can do so. There's
Toom enough for all. Whilo this
is tho caso occasion is hereby ta-
ken to inform all roadens that tho
fabcr-jerke-r of tho luminary is an

the pmo by Jaw. - While tho vio-
lation of any law is to ho regretted
tho action of council in pstsing
such an unreasonable and unwar-
ranted act cannot be too severely
-censured. Tho history of the
passago of the law in question dis-
closes an utter disregard of tho
wishes of tho peoplo and a dispo
sition to sacrifice any and all in-

OUR STRIP LANDS BOOMING.
Tho value of our strip lands as
estimated at tho prico offered for
them by privato parties is gradu-
ally increasing overy day. What
their worth in natural state will
"bo in a fow years moro is indicat-
ed by a late oiler to Chief Mayes
'by tho Strip association for two
additional five years leaso to the
no they now have. An offer of
g-ibO.OOO per annum is inudo for
the fivo years next following the
expiration of tho present lease and
9720000 per annum for another
term of five years making in ail
fifteen years. Taking tho present
Tent of $200000 a year which is
$1 000000 for tho first five yeaw
and $400000 pci annum for tho
second five years which is
$2000000 and $720000 for the
third fivo years which is $3C00-
000wc have a rental of $0000000
which is only $1150000 less than
tho ninount Uic commission is au-
thorized to offer us at $1.25 per
acre This is as much as to say
that in fifteen years the Chcrokccs
will havo realized the government
price of our lands less $1150000
which will then bo the cost of
thoso 6200000 acres to tho Chcro-
kecs .Mora than thig at tho ex-
piration of tho fifteen years these
lands ought to ho worth on an
average of $10.00 per aero.

throo commissioners to negotialo
with tho qhcrokcos for tho cession
to tho United States of their lands
lying west of thb uGlh meridian
Secretary Nohlo informs tho chief
who aro on tho commission Lu-
cious Fuirchild John F. Hartranfl
and Alfred M. Wilson.
Tho commission he .says aro
fully instructed and will-as early
as practicable proceed to vtho In-
dian Territory and enter upon tho
dischargo of tho duties assigned
"Tho object of this communica-
tion" ho says "is to give you as
chief of tho Chcrokco nation
timely advico of tho appointment
of tho commission? and that it has
arranged for tho purpose of
entering upon tho duties assigned
to it to visit tho capital of your
nation on or about the 26th inst.
and it is desired that 'you will
tako such steps as will sccuro tho
making of such arrangements as
will ho necessary on part of tho
Cherokee nation to meet tho com-
mission and conduct tho negotia-
tions provided for."
Tho section of the act that au-
thorizes the president to appoint
this commission is too specific to
admit of the idea that moro than
$1.23 an acre will be offered. The
clauso that indicates the price
reads as follows:
"That said commission is fur-
ther authorized to pubmit to the
Chcrokco nation tho proposition
that said nation shall ccdo to tho
United States in tho manner and
with tho eflcct aforesaid all
tho rights of said nation in said
lands upon tho same terms as to
paympnt as provided in lho agree-
ment mado with the Creek Indians
tc" followed as a condition sub-
sequent by further authority giv
en tho president to open by proc-
lamation tho said lands to set-
tlement. What steps as desired by Secre-
tary Noble will bo taken by tho
chief in making such arrangements
as will bo necessary on tho part of
the Cherokee nation to meet tho
commission and conduct tho nego-
tiations provided for aro not yet
known. Doubtlessly he has made
up his mind. Ho may to some
extent bo governed by tho desires
of tho commission.
TO YOUR REGULAR
Anyone well acquainted with the
political tricks played by one par-
ty on another by inciting dissen-
sions to split tho party vote will
not allow himsolf to bo made a
shameful tool of to beat his own
party nominees and elect those of
tiio other. It is too much hko two
dogs fighting over a bone and
whilo they are strictly attonding to
business a third dog como along
captures tho bone and is off liko a
shot. It is an old trick of tho
trade which tho erperienco of
many defeats has failed to teach
sore-heads the folly of listening to
or of allowing themselves to aid in
putting into power their political
enemies. The result always has
been and will bo that the second
ticket is beaten and it is a
rare exception that tho parly
though having a majority in tho
district is not beaten likewise.
The reward for so doing cannot
be satisfaction to those who ought
to have sense enough if they
haven't to realize tho fact that
such conduct is always condemned
by honest peoplo and those who
aro true to their party principles
and mado fun of by thoso who are
well pleased to see political friends
knock each other down and scram-
ble over a bono that someone else
is sure to get.
No one should consider himself
swindled his patriotism unappre-
ciated his self-sacrificing disposi-
tion to servo his country neglect-
ed or his statesmanship under-
valued should he ail to get a
chance in tho political lottery.
Bucking around and kicking
liko a "bay steer" because you
did not get a nomination is only
amusement to many and a matter
of calculation as to tho qua ttity of
sense you've got and what will be
your feeling when you arc brought
to a knowlcdgo of the painful fact
that you havo boon acting tho fool
and that you have lost tho sympa-
thy and respect of your parly and
that if you ever had any chances
for office you and they aro played
NO MAYE3 PARTY.
For political effect tho Nation
als and others who aro"somclimcs
pig and sometimes puppy" are
trying to make the peoplo beliove
that thero is a Mayes party and a
Downing party that the par
ty that elected Mayes as chief havo
divided into two factions sinco tho
election. Why this is so or what
caused the split no one prelouds
to say or give any reason for.
False a it is and known to he it
Is only a despcrato scheme to
cause dissatisfaction in the Down-
ing ranks. To some this runv op
pear as an unreasonable causo for
any trouble as Mayes was tho
choice of tho Downing party for
chief and having elected him as
such U cannot allow itself to bo
split in0 two to accommodate the
trjcitlers pf the JJatfyiial Mrty or
of those whoso communications
aro with it dosplto their Downing
Several years ago in tho town
ofTahlcquah A politician noted
"for tricks that aro vain" got up
at a political meeting and hollow-
ed "I belong to tho Bu&hyhcad
party." To the credit of tho
Downing party there cannot bo
said that there is a man in it who
on any public occasion would
strike an attitudo to givo effect to
his declaration and bellow "I
belong to tho Mayes party."
Chief Mayes is not only endorsed
by his own party but by liun-
dreds of honest men of tho Na
tional for his conduct in tho lease
of tho strip lands for grazing pur-
poses. For this reason many may
say "I am a Mayes man" with-
out any intention of having it con-
strued into a parly distinction
which is far djflferpnt from "I bo-
long to tho IHishyhead parly."
Tho name Downing party is
fixed and Banctificd by tho death
and recollections of him who was
willing to lay down tho arms of
sectional and unholy strifo and to
ro-unito tho Chcrokccs into a biud
of brothers and no one who re-
veres his memory and who ap-
preciates tho blessings of reunion
and friendship will ever be will
ing for any other namo to bo sub-
stituted. "Sink or swim" wc still
stand by it.

Sbateipeare King Klchird II Act It
Editor Ciiisftaix: In The
Chieftain of June 27 appeared a
communication bearing tho namo
of Johnson Fallon one of the mid-
night delegates from tho black-
smith shop. Mr. F. seems to bo
displeased with some refurenco
made to him in my report of the
convention of tho Downing party
on Juno Slh. If there were any
ambiguous expressions in that re-
port he has seen fit to place his own
construction upon them which ho
had a perfect right to do and as
he himself has placed tho shoo on
the foot that he thinks it fits best
it only illustrates more forcibly the
maxim that "a man is known by
the company he keeps." Happily
situated as he is known only by his
peculiar and utter insignificance
tic is only another instance of a
human being's complete nonentity
havinc been its meld and protec
tionanother wise provision of
nature in protecting that which
cannot protect itself.
But to enlighten tho public a
little as wo go along we will only
tell how Mr. F. stands relative to
tiio man that owns tho commissary
where lie gets his provisions.
Johnson Fallen is Hooly Bell's
general roustabout and keeper of
his "Cleveland bay" except Sun-
days. Though 1 do not presume
to say that this disqualifies him
from acting as a delegate to repre-
sent his peoplo in a political con-
vention ; neither do I censure him
for being angry when another tries
to drag him from his native ele-
ment nor fur his zeal in the cause
of his master. I do not wish to
create tho impression that Mr. F.
belittles himself in assuming the
role he did in the backwoods con-
vention of Juno 5; on the contrary
quite tho reverse. Mr. F. should
foci himself highly honorod by the
flattering condescension of Gus
Buffmgton and Art Williams in
allowing themselves to bo asso-
ciated with him on that occasion.
Under the pretence of insulted
dignity he has seized the opportu-
nity to vent his personal spito
against J. M. Bell and B. S. Lan-
druin. In reply to his personal
invective against them I have
nothing to say. In ttpcakiug of
tho "absurditv of the secretary's
position" ifcc ho Bays "that the
Downing party would put itself in
a position of utter helplessness no
one will believe." Wonder who
the writer means by "tho Downing
party :" is it himself or tho pub-
lic? I would liko to know the in-
gredients that compose a political
party. No doubt part of tho vot-
ers of Ketchum's precinct were
dissatisfied with the remit of the
convention of Juno lbt but why
didn't the writer tell us what part"?
If all reports be true there was
certainly one man that was very
highly displeased with tho result
and also the manner of conduct-
ing especially as it relates to the
appeals from tho chairman's de-
cision that wcro sustained by tho
convention. Why did not the
writer givo some information con-
cerning his little convention at the
shop? Why did lie not tell how
many citizens participated In that
convention and at what hour of
tho day those delegates w;o ap
pointed? And at the snniu lime
why did ho not say that there
wete other mon (citizens) present
but the "convention" waited until
they went away before convening.
Ho is pleased to cull tho motion to
appoint a committee on creden-
tiuls "premature." Tho chairman
announced that business was in
order beforo it was put to the
house. The motion was fair in
every respect and th? Downing
men know that thero wero not
three mon outside of hades that
would throw out Ketchum pre-
cinct with tho certificates they
carried. It is also very easy to
say that none of tho Vinif a delega-
tion set up any claim to their seats
after tho call for credentials was
made. Aftor tho last motion car-
ried with the voto of the entire
mongrel delegation and teeing
that it would ho useless to wastp
time in a convention whero fair-
ness was never heard of the
Downinga withdrew and left tho
cow convention to proceed with
As (ho gentleman has nijked a
few personal questions. I will do
tho same. By what right does L.
B. Bell ask honors and oQlco at
tho hands of tho peoplo of l)ea-
waro district? Is it for services
rundorod dr fc wrongs inflicted?
If it for hardships endured whilo
fighting "traitors at homo iusti-gr-ted
by monii-d syndicates
abroad?" Is it for mighty efforts
put forth in trying to sccuro tho
highest possible price for our
grazing privileges? Or is it for his
fovorish and frciuicd exertions in
tho interest of a foreign cattle syn
dicate to override every veto of
Chief Mayes? Tho acts of our last
national council aro too painfully
familiar to tho peoplo of tho Cher
okce nation to bo bo easily forgot-
ten and tho conspicuous part
played by L. B. Bell in that litllo
drama is not likclv to redound to
his honor. If L. B. Bell is sucli a
strong "Downing party" man why
is it that tho only newspaper in
tho territory that extols his vir-
tuos is tho litllo political advertis-
ing sheet at Fort Gibson that is
festering in its besotted national
ism? As to tho little editorial of
the Tolophono of June 28th it is
all tin' veriest bosh and altogether
unworthy a man or 11. V. U. shot-

egates than they wcro entitled to

Those who were instructed for L.
B. Bell wero appointed by about
forty-nine men including citizens
non.citizcns intruders and a few
from Coowccscoowco district. I
have talked witli disinterested
spectators of the scene and if they
told tho truth L. B. Bcll'a Vinita
convention must have surpassed
tho wildest orgies of the Hotten-
tots of Africa. Tho other conven-
tion took the namo of overy citizen
taking part in it and there wero
fifty-live names on the list. About
Ketchum precinct there could be
no doubt hut his undo got a little
delegation made up of his own
choice material and appointed in
his own peculiar way. Let the
editor of the Telephone ask a few
disinterested parties and lie will
find out how his "Undo Hooly"
got his nomination. Ho simply
makes a misstatement whether
willful orothorwisc when he says
that icvcn men withdrow from the
convention and made their nomi-
nations. If he had said sixteen lie
would havo told tho truth hut ac-
cording to former agreement only
fifteen made the nominations.
In another clause of its platform
the Downing party pledges itself
to tho luilcst development 01 me
resources and revenues of the
country. Now who was it with
the connivance of his National
colleagues attempted to carry out
a policy in direct contradiction to
tho spirit of this clause? L. B.
Boll. Who was it by such vilo
methods of legislation made the
name of the Indian upon the floors
of congress synonymous with ev-
erything that is base and corrupt?
L. B. Bell. Who was it that ro-
pudiatcd overy pledge mado his

enemies of his country? Echo
