Capt. Wm. Jackson was elected
Mayor of Wagoner last week. The
Captain headed the democratic
Indian legislation in congress is
a specialty with the Washington
coriespandenls of the metropolitan
press these days.
One of the questions that con-
gress will now wrestle with is a
bill of instructions for the Dawes
commission. It will certainly be
very difficult lor this commission
to do more than has already been
done without additional legislation.
A BILL has been introduced in
congress providing that hereafter
white men marrying Indian women
shall acquire no interest in the
tribal property but the women be-
come citizens of the United States
but lose no tribal rights. The five
civilized tribes of this territory and
the Seneca nation of New York
Indians are specifically excluded
from the provisions of this pro-
A meeting of the executive com-
mittee of the Indian Territory
Press association was held at Wag-
oner Monday. It was determined
to hold an association meeting
about the last of August at South
McAlester and an endeavor will be
made to arrange an excursion to
Denver and other points in Colo-
rado. A program which should
prove of benefit to every member
of the association was mapped out.
The status of every class of citi-
zens in this nation is now practi-
cally settled with one exception
that of the adopted white citizens
and their case has also been passed
upon incidentally along with the
Delaware? Shawnees and freed-
men though in a way that will not
do the whites any good. The con-
stitution of the Cherokee nation
clearly defines the status of all
classes of citizens but like the
other classes of adopted people
named the whites will have to
have their case passed upon by the
court of claims specifically. Of the
Shawnees and Delawares there are
about 1500 of the freedmen prob
ably 4000. and of the white
adopted something near 2100.
is one thing certain it was a bad
day for the Cherokees when Mr.
Wallace was allowed to set up his
court and proceed with the work
without the Cherokee nation being
represented. The Cherokees have
always felt that a great injustice
had been done them in the making
of this roll for it is a well known
fact that a large number of colored
people are enrolled that had no
good claim to citizenship in this
country and could not have justly
been admitted under any single
provision of the treaty of 1SG6.
But it should not be forgotten that
about one hundred additional
names were added to Mr. Wallace's
roll b the interior department
after Wallace had submitted it
and that there were still others left
off that were without doubt enti-
tled to citizenship. The Wallace
enumeration amounted to nearly
3500 but what the present one
will be no one would hardly risk a
guess for withal it is an uncanny
subject and the most conservative
are afraid to even think of the re
sult. Of course all will admit that
the natural increase of these peo-
ple has been large for they an
under favorable circumstances the
most prolific people of any race or
country. Whatever may be the
result there is little question but
that the roll now being made will
be final and that those who suc-
ceed in getting their names on this
time need have no doubts of their
citizenship in the future and their
rights will extend to land and
moneythe property of the tribe.
But there is one consolation alike
to all concerned and it is a con-
summation lung and devoully
wished the final settlement of
this matter is near at hand and
the rights of these people will be
ultimately settled and their num-

Washington April 30. T h e
house committee on Indian affairs
today reconsidered its vote making
a favorable report upon the bill
imposing a maximum rate of 3
cents per mile for passenger
charges in the Indian Territory. It
will be remembered that this bill
was passed upon unfavorably by
the comptroller some time ago
but the report had never been
made to the house and at the in
stance of the Indian territory
railroads a reconsideration was
The Democratic territorial con-
vention to be held in this city on
June 9th will be in man' res-
pects the greatest political conven-
tion ever held in the Indian Terri-
tory. The people of the town
regardless of party affiliation will
work to that end. The Democrat-
ic club of Yinita has the matter of
arrangements in the hands of
competent committees and a rous
ing reception will be given the
hundreds of delegates and visitors
that will attend. The eagle will
be turned loose and allowed to
scream and it may be stated that
it will not be the McKinley bird
that was caught in a trap and
shipped to the great apostle of
protection some years ago but the
real American eagle the bird of
freedom that soars aloft over and
above all parties and all issues.
Vinita will not lose the opportun-
ity of doing herself proud on this
occasion; she has the hotels and
the homes that will be thrown
open to the visiting statesmen. If
necessary a "wigwam" will be
erected for the occasion so that
every visitor as well as delegate
can sit and see and hear what is
Indian Hill Conference.
Washington April 30. The con-
ferees on the Indian appropriation
bill have not yet come together.
Representative Sherman ot New
York has relumed and the house
conferees are ready for the meet-
ing but so far the senate conferees
have shown no inclination to begin
operations. The senators proba-
bly have soma inkling of the trou-
ble they are going to have through
the efforts of the members of the
house to secure important legisla
tion affecting the continuance of
the Dawes commission As has
been before stated in the dis-
patches the house conferees intend
to secure as comprehensive a cata-
logue of the duties of the commis-
sion as possible in the section con-
tinuing their salaries. The incor-
poration of general legislation in
appropriation bills is always vig-
orously objected to and is often
met with by final and effective
opposition at the White House.
In this instance however the
general Indian bill enlarrinc the
duties of the Dawes commission
which is now pending before the
House originated with the presi-
dent and if this bill in whole or
part should be incoiporatcd in the
Indian appropriation bill he could
not be expected to object.
Fort Smith Court.
The May term of the United
States court opened Monday morn-
ing. The juries were empaneled
and sworn but there was scarcely
anything else done. The docket
is of the usual size but has only
nine murder cases set for trial.
One of the most important features
of the day was that it was the be-
ginning of Judge Parker's twenty-
second j'ear upon the bench. In
his charge to the juries he briefly
reviewed the changes in the condi-
tion in the Indian Territory since
he went on the bench. He said a
icign of terror existed there when
he first came twenty-one years ago
and he feared that it would be en-
acted again when the full jurisdic-
tion was given the territory courts.
He thought congress had made a
mistake and that lull jurisdiction
should not be given the Indian
Territory courts until that country
was organized as a state. He was
especiall' severe upon mob law
and said that it taught disrespect
for the law. In the Indian Terri
tory though he had only known
of three cases in two years.
A number of Indian Territory
papers have copied an article from
the Tulsa New Era unon the work
done by the Ft. Smith deputies
that does them a gross injustice.
Ike Rogers had a commission from
Col. Crump in one inside pocket
and a sixshooter in the other when
he took the fire stick to Cherokee
Bill. Bill Smith was with Marsh
Tilghman in the capture of Bill
Raidler and two of Col. Crump's
deputies were in the parly which
had the fight with the Cook gang
in which Henry Munson and Lon
Gordon were killed. Bob Rogers
never held a commission as a dep-
uty and was killed by a deputy
from this court. He fed the dep-
uties into the campol his gang but
they did not surrender without a
bitter fight in which two of them
were killed. The list of bad men
captured by Ft. Smith deputies is
too long to mention.
John and George Pierce and
Webber Isaacs were hanged here
last Thursday afternoon. They
walked to the gallows firmly and
calmly but all showed a consider-
able degree of nervousness and
that they were laboring under a
great mental strain. The made
no talk on the gallows and simply
requested a prayer by the priest.
They made no protestation of in-
nocence nor did they acknowledge
their guilt. Webber Isaacs told
the same story that he did before
to his cell mate the night before
A. W. Craig and Ed Lunsford
charged with being accessories to
the murder of Thomas R. Madden
had their examination Friday.
Craig was held and Lunsford discharged.
Catoosa to the Front Again.
Catoosa again comes to the front
with another killing. On Monday
John Green shot and killed the
wife of his cousin Jeff Green at
Fox Taylor's ford on the Verdigris
river As near as we can learn
the facts it came about in the fol-
lowing manner: John Green was
working in the field when Jeff
Green and wife came out to him
with the avowed purpose of whip-
ping him as the result of a former
quarrel that they had had. Jeff
gave chase to John with a rock in
his hand when John turned and
made him desist with a small pis-
tol which he had. Jeffs wife then
took up the quarrel and went to
the house and got a rifle which she
started to give to her husband but
John interfered. She throwed
down on him and he throwing up
both hands to knock the rifle to
one side.his pistol was discharged
the ball entering Mrs. Green's
forehead just above the nosr from
which she died that evening John
immediately came to Clareniore
and gave himself up to Deputy
Marshal Jack Williams. He said
the trouble all arose over the arrest
of Mrs. Green some months ago by
the Ft. Smith authorities on the
charge of murdering her child and
John Green refused to go as a wit-
ness in their behalf for the reason
as he stated that he would not
swear to a lie and if Jie told the
truth he would convict them. All
the parties were whites and the
case will he tried at Ft Smith.
FREEDMEN ROLL BEIN'U MADE.
The long-looked-for commission
to take the census of the freedmen
of the Cherokee nation is now en-
gaged in that important work.
This commission will take the au-
thenticated census rolls of 1SS0
the last rolls of the nation that
have been authenticated by act of
council as a basis and a new roll
will be made governed b' the
treaties bearing upon the subject.
Six years ago the famous Wallace
roll was made. Wallace was sent
here by the interior department to
take the census of the Cherokee
freedmen. The Cherokees were
not represented in Mr. Wallace's
court because the chief refused to
appoint an attorney to represent
the nation. Council had made no
provision for such appointment
and Chief Joel B. Mayes did not
care to assume the responsibility
of appointing an attorney under
such circumstances. The respon-
sibility of the refusal of the chief
to act in this matter has been
placed variously; some have
claimed that the chief was respon-
sible for the Wallace roll but the
masses have we believe laid the
lame on the council. But there
Washington May 2. There is
a great deal of uneasiness among
claimants for Indian attorneys'
fees as to the action to betaken by
the conference committee in the
Indian appropriation bill. The
house promptly refused to insert
many of these claims and they
were adopted by the senate aftera
vigorous debate lasting for several
days. The conference committee
appointed by the senate however
is said to be not very friendly to a
number of them and combined
with the opposition they will meet
at the hands of tho house confer-
ees it is not unlikely that several
of them may be omitted from the
bill as it finally passes. Particu-
lar opposition is being made to
the attorneys' claims growing out
of the old Cherokee Indian settle-
ment and it is stated upon what
seems to be good authority that
these claims will be omitted from
the bill. A great man' Indian
claims are meeting with a wiy
cool reception at the hands of this
congress. The committee on In-
dian affairs has just sent in an ad
verse report upon the bill to pay
to holders of the Kaw or Kansas
Indians scrip the balance due upon
this scrip. The bill is to pay to
certain holders of this scrip which
was issued without authority an
additional 1 per cent interest on
the scrip from lS62to the present
time there having been paid the
principal with 5 per cent interest.
The committee is satisfied that
there was no authority in the be-
ginning to issue the scrip and that
the parties holding the same have
already been paid more than they
were entitled to.
The attempt to add the Dawes
bill as an amendment to the Indi-
an appropriation bill failed in the
senate. In the course of debate
the decision of the United States
supreme court in tho eastern Cher-
okee case with the ruling of Sec'y
Teller that the rights to decide the
citizenship of a claimant was
vested exclusively in tho tribes
wa6 quoted approvingly. The In-
dian lobby have won a complete
victory and the controlling power
of the officials of the five tribes is
today more firmly fixed than at
any period of their history. The
"independent nation" theory was
fully recognized even to the extent
of the supreme court decision that
"By treaties with the Cherokees
the United States have fully rec-
ognized them as a distinct politi
cal community so far as to justify
and require negotiations with them
in that character."
This would preclude a possibili-
ty of statehood without their con-
sent and so entangles all questions
of that nature as to render efforts
of that character by Oklahoma
mere wasted effort. Ex.
Robert L. Owens the distin-
guished Cherokee politician and
financier will sell at auction at
Blackwell O. T. on May 16th a
large number ol his lots in that
town the design being to get more
people interested to help and by
promoting the construction of a
railroad to the place make a
lots with a road worth more
many without. Arkansas
Agent D. M. Wisdom is disburs-
ing money to the Old Settlers of
the Cherokee nation at Ft. Gibson
this week having began the pay-
ment there last Friday. He will
likely pay at Gibson for the next
ten days. The paymei.t necessa-
rily progresses very slowly as it
is quite complicated and must be
handled carefully Up to Wednes
day morning last about sbo.000 had
been paid out including what had
been paid at Muskogee. Tho agent
thinks it will take him fully two
months if not more to complete
This payment is similar in many
re.-pects to the Strip payments of
1S94 except that tho crowd is not
so large but the flying jenny plays
the same old familiar tunes that
all ttiose who attended the other
payments are so familiar with
while other catch-penny games
are numerous on the grounds.
There were originally 3.000 old
settlers who came to this country
in 1S3G and were at that time
known as the Ridge party and the
present roll is made up of the de
scendants of these old Cherokees
only a very few of the original old
sottlers being alive. After the
Ridge party came the Ross party
and very turbulent times followed
many killings resulting from feuds
between the two factions. At the
breaking out of the late war the
Ross party or "Pin" Indians re-
mained loyal to the government
while Stand Watic led the other
faction in fighting on the confeder-
ate side hence nearly all who
served in tho confederate army
participate in this payment. Elevator.

white settlement seeming to think
that people have forgotten how
they plundered the New England
Indians of their lands. Oklaho-
ma including all the Indian terri-
tory would make one of the finest
states in the Union and it would
pour a stream of wealth into Kan-
sas City and St. Louis. IC is a
shame that such a magnificent
domain should go to waste right
in the heart of civilization. Most
of these noble red men over whose
persecution Messrs. Hoar & Co.
blubber are about as much In-
dians as I am-lhal is flaxen-haired
blue-eyed fair skinned Caucasian
Indians. These blue-eyed In-
dians are the ones who fight for
statehood and they are "big in-
juns" for the real Indians have a
law that any Indian can have as
much land as he will fence. The
genuine Indian wouldn't fence the
Garden of Eden; but the "squaw-
men" do fence and desire to fence
"all the land-joining theirs" and
crowd Mr. Red Man to tho hills.
Last spring I lectured at Purcell.
To while away the time en route I
asked the conductor if there were
many Indians there. "An Indian
what's that? inquired the knight
of the bell cord "I never saw
one." Neither did I during my
stay in that ambitious little city. "
One Caucasian Indian owns a
farm by the fence tenure 25 miles
Jong and 15 wide. In 1S94 he sold
300000 bushels of wheat off his
ranch to say nothing of cattle
horses hogs etc. Governor Ren-
frew who by tho way is a level
headed Arkansan asked this par-
ticular Indian why he opposed
statehood. lie replied in language
which Logan Black Hawk or
King Phillip could not have un-
derstood: "Because it would cost
me SG.000 a year in taxed" So
Grandpa Hoar et al. would forever
deprive millions of industrious
white people of happy homes in
order that such bogus Indians may
roll in wealth. If McRea can se-
cure statehood he ought to take
rank among presidential possibili-
ties. Recently he said that he is the
original Bland man. No doubt he
declared for "the Bald Eagle of
the Ozarks" at an early date; but
the honor of being the pioneer
Bland man belongs to C. B. Ellis
better known as "Toot" Ellis edi-
tor Of the Vandalia Mail and Ex-
press who also enjoys the distinc-
tion of being the youngest editor
in Missouri. In his first issue
Sept. 13 1S93 at the masthead
was this legend: "For President
in 1S9G Richard P. Bland." So
the kid editor probably preceded
all others in the movement now
considerably larger than a man's
hand. "Toot's" youthful troubles
was then like one crying in the
wilderness. Now the basso pro-
fundo voices of big bore statesmen
make Silver Dick's name rever-
berate throughout the land.

about Judge Culberson as their

"physical culture enthusiast the other
day to a class of Indies. "The weight of
the skirts on the straps has worn little
furrows in the hcaiy muscles of the

women who wear narrow straps. Of
course it is not observable when they
arc dressed in ordinary costume but

things upon the ordinary corset. That

cause of more distress than one can
well imagine. There are a great many
people who could not be induced to
put shoulder straps on growing chil-
dren; indeed the waist is in every re-
spect more desirable. It need not be
high in the neck but should coer the
curve of the shoulders so that the
weight of the gnrments may rest even-

"Vikita I.T. Feb. 20 1S96.
The Wm. Hall HediclneCo. St. Louis Mo.:
The medicine sent me has cured hog cholera in all stages after: giving it7a
fair test I find it to be the only sure cure I ever had and have tried nearly
everything heard of before. Being in a liquid form renders it easy to admin-
ister. It goes farther thereby making it cheaper than any other preven-
tive I ever used. The four bottles ent me has cured about 43 head that were
infected in the herd. Still have some left on hand that I use as a preven-
tive. L. W.Mabks.
