to it that the editor of the Advo-
cate is a gentleman.
It is said Hint n strong lobby litis
gone '. Washington to defeat the
ratifWtion of the Strip salo.
Tub receipts of United States
apples nt Liverpool up to Decern
bcr 23d aggregated 690.200 barrels.
What has become of tho 80500

What will bo tho "intrinsic
value" of tho delegation to Wash-
ington? And nothing from 810250
To urge the' ratification of the
salo of tho Strip seems to bo tho
burden of the business of our del-
egation in Washington.
When tho loud-mouthed editor
of the Advocato gets caught all ho
has to do ib to point over his shoul-
der at somebody behind.
Oon Washington delegation gets
810250. Did somebody ask how
long could this government last?
Echo answors how long I
It is intimated that congress is
determined to economiio by refus-
ing to mHko appropriations to meet
their obligations with tho Indians.
We propose each week to maku
Thk CiiibFTAiN more useful moro
interesting and more newsy and
while this is being done can not
our friends assist u in extending
"John William Browne" sug-
gests Abraham's bosom as an ulti-
mate cscapo for the poor people
of this country from the power of
tne moneyed classes. We would
suggest to Mr. "Browne" that ho
imitato the example of Goh'stnithV
village preacher " Alluro to
brighter worlds and lead the way."
The constitution of Arkansas do
fines its west lino thus: "Thence
to bo bounded on the west from
the southwest corner of the state of
Missouri to tho northern bank of
lied river as by act of congress and
treaties existing January 1 1837
defining the western limits of iho
statoof Arkansas." This disposes
of tho scare concerning tho forty
milo strip off the east end of this
Delegate Boudinot in an in-
terview in St. Louis when on his
way to Washington said that the
tact that only 6.G00 acres out of
over 6000000 were included un-
der section five was the sufficient
answer to the intimation of a job.
Well really that ain't much of a
steal after all and the people
should congratulato themselves
that it was not worse. Tho policy
seems to have been to just take a
small slice and tho people would
not miss it.
Thkke is no better index to nn
individual's true character than
the appreciation or non-appreciation
of favors rendered; and there
is no more despicable character on
tho face of the -arth than an Mi-
grate. The snarling dog that
snapped tho hand that in friend-
ship stroked his back was a miser-
able brute that deserved to have
a can tied to his tail at least 3G5
times every year of his worthless
life. But this same dog is a "gen-
tleman and a scholar" compared
with the man who accepts all man-
ner of fuvors and ullown himself to
be lifted out or tho mire only
to turn and strike tho hand that in
kindness and mercy lifts him to
his feet who wiil sneak around
and stab in tho back the best friend
he has in the world.
Thk Advocate still insints that
it knows all aboutTiiE Chieftain's
business and now and tnen ml-
ministers ailoso of "Hankins" or
"Ilanks" as the caso may he
iEsop in ono of his immortal fa-
hies tells of a lion on whom all
the birds and beasts hed avenged
themselves with impunity etill his
liouship remained unruffled. But
by and by tho ass camo along and
throw his heels into the lion's
face following tho example of tho
others whereupon tho old lion
uttered tucso words: "Alas! hoiy
grievous it is to suffer insults oven
from the bravo and valiant; but to
bo attacked by eo baBo a creature
as till who is a disgrace to nature
is unlmrablo." This doesn't en-
tirsly express The CiirEtrrAix'ii
fMliagp in tbe mutter but comes
DMrar than anything else that
BUgpate lieclf at ttrcgri)t. This
may bm a little Mver but then

cordition in tho least so far as
principle is concerned Men do
not brcatho their principles with
tho air. nor drink them with tho
wafer nor get them from any par-
ticular strain of blood but they are
innate rather. Tho lino between
tho white and Indian race is moro
imaginary than real. Tho two
currents have ever blended and wo
must say the Indian has not lost
by the amalgamation. The whole
world now admits tho old Jeffer-
sonian doctrine that "all mon wore
created equal" and that though a
man bo whito red or blaok he is
"A man lor a' UiM "
NOT FAIRLY STATED.
Elsewhere in this paper appears
an editorial clipping from the
Globe Democrat of the l-l'th inst
in which the tribal relution of In-
dians is eonsidorod at some length.
While tho position of Senator
Dawes is fur from being correct
tho Globo-Domocrat's edilori.il
comment is also incorrect. It is
asked that the tribal rolations bo
abolishod for the purpose of de-
stroying the outhority of the chiefs.
Now who are tho chiefs that their
authority must bo destroyed? Tho
chiefs of the five tribes are men oc-
cupying similar positions to tb. sc-
ot the governors ol the states.
They have no authority save that
Jwni-h tho office confer. Thov
are elected by the popular vote of
tho people antHiavo no authority
that is absolute r in any way. to
bo feared. Tin- live tribes should
no longer bo called tribos but in-
telligent progressive American
citizens rather. When Senator
Dawes speaks or 250000 Indians
being turned lotuupon the prairies
he leaves the impression upon the
comjuI reader that the Indian was
under guard or was in some sense
deprived of his liberty. Just bow
well satisfied tho Indian is with
his surroundings is illustrated by
Senator Bell's retort to the Chero-
kee commission two years ago
when that body first visited Table-
quah with a view to buying the
Outlet. At a meeting oi the two
commission during the long and
tiresomo negotiations Col. Wilson
said to tho Cherokee.' "What do
you want?" Bell's reply was
"Wo want to be let alo'no." It is
unruir to assume that trie United
States is protecting and support-
ing the Indians and to be let alone
is a consummation devoutly to be
wfched. Of the five tribes prob-
ably not ovor five per cent arejhe
kind of Indians to which Mr.
Dawes refers. The blanket In-
dians will scon be like the Amer-
ican bufliilo. But nobody is sorry
that the Indian is learning to wear
clothes and take caro of himself
'socially politically mid financially
It is too common for United States
senators to declare that the gov-
ernment i supporting the Indians
when the truth is that the govern-
ment is only paying the Indians
what they justly oho them. Con-
gress frequently refuses to make
appropriations lor Indian tribes as
though 'twas a gift. Tho Indian
desires all the rights privileges
and immunities he can pot-sibly
get and in addition to this to be
INDIAN TRIBAL RELATIONS
Senator Dawes expresses the
view that no moro general legisla-
tion is needed regarding the statue
of the Indian but that the prcBaut
linvsian be depended upon to solve
tlio problem in the due coumo of
time. He is particularly hostile to
tho idea of abolishing the tribal
relations. It would never do ho de-
clares to throw 250000 Indians out
of their present relations; "it
would simply bo turning a flock
of sheep loose on tho prairio with
no ono to caro for Uiein " The
Senator's comparison is not a good
ono. He presents the caso in an
uncandid way and conveys a
wrong impression oi tho policy
that he opposes. Nobody pro-
poses to turn tho Indians loose
liko sheep on the prairie. It ie
only ntked that thoir tribal rela-
tions be abolished fur the purpose
of destroying the authority of the
chiefs and promoting u feeling of
loyalty to tlio government- under
present conditions all of the old
Indian customs and superstitions
aro preserve!! and the chiefs make
it a point to encourage tho spirit
oi inuerueu emnity lovoni tne
whlta ruoe Tho procebB of civill.
ration is mocked and hindered by
tho presence of alien and sinister
forces that should nut ho allowed
to exist Tiihal sovereignty is the
one greats drawback and so long
fU It regain? there can not be a
really ofTeclivo Indian policy.
Tho government is protecting
ond supporting tho various tribes
and each ono. of thorn has its own
laws' and oflicers and prolongs tho
Bomblanco of its formor strength
and glory in a way that Is utterly
Inconsistent with its present stato
of decay and dependence. If iho
tribal relations wero dissolved the
tribal sense of haughtiness and
preiudico would soon disappear
and tho influenco of education and
association would liavo n far bet-
ter chanco of success. It is eny
to understand that satisfactory re-
sults cannot bo expected whoro
tho Indians aro permitted to re-
tain all of their peculiar forms
ceremonies and regulations. They
are certain to give preference ol re-
sped and obedience to their own
governmental agents and appli-
aiiccs and that inspires a danger-
ous attitude on their part as well
as a continual obstruction to the
work of leaching them the lessons
of industry and morality. Tho
Indian wars havo their origin
mostly in tho blunder of hnmnring
thiH tribal sovereignty and help-
ing tho chiefs to maintain thoir
authority. Thceo leading mon of
the different tribes are all enemies
of the policy of civilization and
would like to see it fail. They
keep alive tho warliko instinct of
tho race and do all they can to
discourage tho adoption of tho art
of peace. It is to the interest of
the government as well as to the
Indians that theso scheming and
inischcvious indivividuals should
bo deprived of thoir power and
the only way to reach the results
is to abolish tho tribal relation
and let tho laws of tho United
Stales havo direct and complete
sway over all tho tribes and reservations.

To the Editor Deak Sin:
There is a matter agitating the
bieasts of several of our citizens
to-day which has its bearing in
the past and in tho future as well
as in the present. All candid mon
will "diuii all sensible men must
iiilnn'. that considerations of tho
past and future may infinitely out-
weigh all considerations of present
expediency and comfort. Hi-re
again we are in danger ' being
met with the objection that con-
siderations as to future political
conditions and actions (for this
matter has political bearing) arc
as a rule visionary ; that a man r
a parly who sacrifices present po
litical standing ilepeuuini; on
jpending on n
is either harm-
lessly rainbow. chasing or else has
gone mad. The answer to this is
that nothing is easier to ono who
has learned the lesion of politic il
history than to foretell the result
of political questions after the in-
terest in them extends over tho
whole country and they havo be-
come concrete and definite. The
citizens in Vinita who know who !
prediction was made (tiiero are
made it) after the election of Pres
ident Harrison that free trade was
"Ure to win. Three years and a
half have passed; reciprocity holds
a securo and growing importance
as a policy of Mr.IIarrison's party;
with reciprocity In the republican
platform and revenue tariff in the
democratic in this year of grace
1892 whatever may be the inter-
not nf l.nrlia.1 II ivr.nl I aary II...1
the interests of free trade are so-1
cure; ami llio prediction mat tar-
iffs could not stand in the light of
an ndvancincr civilization is tirntiv
well verified. Germany and the
United States tho leading Inrill
powers in Christendom (there is
nothing but lurid nutsido Chris-
tendom) are running to overtake
the Iree trade procession.
Again in 1890 the demand for
freo coinage grow to sucli dimen-
sions that many sober men were
taken oil their feet. A prediction
was made and pooh-poohed. It
was to the effect that whatever
measures were adopted to secure a
larger volume ol currency the
evils ol a double standard would
bo avuided even if Iree coinage
were obliged to wait. Tho cry
was 'To Hades with parity; we
want free coinage and aro going to
get it." Does tho unshakable
leadership of Cleveland show that
his party will make that an issue?
From 1892 to 1890 free coin ige is
sure to sleep unless some interna-
tional agreement establishes par-
ity; at any rate the best friends of-
free coinage must see that the
complexion of things does not en
courage ttie he.ief that their pet
policy iBimtuiRcnt and since they
must wait they ought to be and
will be willing to wait until there
is a safe way to give them what
So il might bo predicted in re-
gard to tho reform of our civil ser-
vice in regard to the Louisiana
and similar lotteries in regard to
stock-watering margins and freo
railroad passes; it is necessary only
to know that the issue is concrete
definite and of interest to the whole
country to know what the remit
will be; when a reform moral or
political is urged it is often neces-
sary only to survoy the field and
see what sort of men are advocat-
ing it and what sort of men are
nppoeing it to tell what the ultimate
result will be.
What ought a man to say then
when silence is stultification and
cowardice about a business carried
on in defiance of just and salutary
law and whose only result is un-
speakable degradation to the citi-
zen the family and tho state ?
If there is a man ingenious enough
to furnish a pretext for silent aci
quiescence on the part-of men who
pretend In be good citizens not to
Bay Christians in tho huslnpti of
keeping a saloon let that pretext
bo printed eo that honest men may
subscribe to it and avoid the un-
pleasant dilemma of being tho en-
emies of certain of their neighbors
of enemies of just and salufary
laws framed n lji)nl'of the weak
and unfortunate. Until th? pre-
text is furnished it is not fair to
reproach men for doing tho only
thing conscience will allow lhcm
jo uo I received rebuke re
contly from n valued Ifldiid ground-
ed on the unadvisabilliyt.f signing
a potition for tho removal ot a sa-
loon; forty-five seconds boforo I

steps of that saloon lour boys to-
gether coming out. I havo been

of each of thoso four boys most
frequently by tho mother with a
mother's Boliciludo.ln her face;

saloonkeeper and his defenders

Iricnd just mentioned ) for thoy

ternal solicitude as little as a Dig-
ger Indian about the Solar system.
But I have hud Vinita mothers ask-
ing mo for fivo years for God's
sako to bo patient to bo dlligont
in season and out of season to be
kind and to help them mako some
thing of their hoys. I have never
been able to tell theso mothers the
worst I knew; the atmosphere of
tho academy is not heavenly by
a great deal therefore wo can do
very little for a boy when hell gets
two ol his hours to our one; wo
can do less still when hell gets our
share of the boy's timo along with
its own. Knowing these things
and 1 have told but little yet ot
what I know about tho saloon tho
very friend who says I am injudi-
cious would be tho first in a better
moment to tell mo how deep and
indelible the taint of c.iwardice
would ho in me if I over lost an
opportunity to outer a protest as
indignant and emphatic as I could
mako it against a business whoso
only influence will bo to Mexican-
ize America. I can sec it; for every
year I have been hero there has
como.undermy observation not less
than one boy with thointegrity.tho
intelligence the ambition which
makes an American changei? into
such a disreputable loafing para-
site that 1 would not daro to insult
Mexico a thousand miles away bv

Aflairs are in a fine condition
indeed in the "Beautiful Indian
Territory" when it is not the vio-
latoi but the iir'oker of a jul and
salutary law who is attempted to
be held up for public censure. A
comic paper had a series of pic-
tures a few years ago ot-u pet kit-
ten which grew to bo a tiger; the
hist picture showed the horror

beheld tho glistening eyes tho
cruel teeth and tho upraised paw

now his fate. The ruin hii-uue-m

to such dimensions now that it
dares show its teeth; it dares to
