J. H. ARTGR Proprietor
In K.'ply to Owen.
Editor Chieltnin: In a former
issue of the. Cliiellniu 1 submitted
tc Col. It. L. Owen self appointed
couneel for the eastern CherokeeB
a legal question in substance as
follows: "If the western Chero-
kees had an equal interest with the
eastern Cherokees in the lands
east of the .Mississippi by what
luw would the latter bo justified in
selling said lands and pocketing
the entire proceeds without ac
oounting to the former?"
In reply the colonel Bays: "The
western Cherokeee have no Inter-
eel whatever in the balance for
the ren8on that their equitable
rights and legal rights under the
treaty whs adjudicated by the su-
pieniH court of the United Stales
in thi' oine of Western Cherokeee
against the Uni'ed - Intra (148 U
S Rxpinie 427) and judgment
rendered in their favor."
The oolnnolV answer is hv no
meaiift SHtlsfiic'ory In examining
thlf oifco I find it to Iih an issue
exelu-ively between iIih western
Cherokee and the Utiiied States;
Uih Hiiinprn Cherokee are not
kniuvn in Uih cse; hence the
light txisiing betw. en ihe west
ern Cherokee and the eastern
Cherokee were nut nnd could
not have been properly ailjudi
ouled. Whether the extern Cher-
okeee when they collect this 81-
HI 284 70 shall have to turn a
par f It over to the western
Cherokees wll depend entirely
upmi Hie rifiiti of it fuure no-
counting and perhaps upon it it ad.
There wer no facte in the treaty
of 1835 nnr any luw henring upon
them by which Hie western Cher-
okees could have held the United
States accountable for their just
proportion of Hie 85000000. In
the fourth article of the treaty of
1810 she only benevolently ack-
nowledged an equity in favor of u
mo western uiieroKees when in
fact there was no such equity ex-
isting; that is to say she magnani-
mously agreed to indemnify the
western Cherokees for the wrong
which tho eastern Cherokeee had
done them in selling their land
and refusing to share with them in
Now this agreement wbb without;
any consideration and tho United!
Slates could not be held liable
upon it any further limn elio-
tnigbt see (it to fulfill it.
It is obvious therefore that the-
issue in this Onso between tho
Western Cherokees and the United
States was an equitable issue $
while tho only one possible be-
tween them and the Eastern
Cherokees i strictly a lrgal one.
It U also tquilly clear Hint what-
ever sum the United States may
have paid tho Western Cherokeee
either voluntarily or aH tho result J
oi a judgment ol the tnurl can
inure only pro luntu to the relief
of the Eastern Cherokees on their
liabilities to their brothers of the
west. Prima facie the Western
Cherokees ore entitled lo tht-ir
share of any balance thai may
come into tho haudg of the East-
ern Cherokees as collectors of the
85000000. Should it ever appear
on an amicable accounting or as
usi- of liio press I am actuated by
something n little more solid than
a bnyinh ambition "lo exploit my-
aelf in print." Too.Qua-Stee.
Uoudlnot Is Opposed.
Editor Chieftain In tho Fort
Gibson Port of March 28 1901 I
notice the following Item:
"U. C. Aditns Frank J. lloudiuot
Kob't I.. Owen ami Judge Springer all
are urgluc the ratification of the agree
ment If there nre others they aliouM now
J spak or foreer hold their peace." VI-
Willi this statement of the
Cliieflatn'H for its authority the
Post without seoing me at all
published tho following:
the result ol nn adjudication thai
the Western Cherokees have in
fact received n fair proportion ol
the lund In question we shall be
satisfied and havo no more to fay;
but as yet however quit the
United Stutes may be to the West-
ern Cherokees their claim upon
their eastern brothers is by no
means res judicata.
I trust my friend tho colonel
will not lake it too deep to heart
beooti8u I laughed at him in my
last u. tide. I have no ohjeotlon
to being esteemed frivolous for 1
think if I live long enough and
keep my health I shall be able to
convince him Hint in my frequent
"P. J Uoudlnot attorney for the Kcc-too-Walis
and foruitrly opposed to the
Cherokee agreement after staying in
Washington several months ami thor-
oughly studying the situation has been
forced to the conclusion that the agree-
ment is httter than the Curtis act beiug-
thelwwtof two evils. As attorney for
the full bloods It may he expected that
will exert much Influence with his peo-
ple. We expect to have something from
him in our next."
As llioso statements of my atti
tude towards the Hell agreement i
are absolutely orronotis without
foundation in truth I hopo Tho
Chieftain will do me the justico to
correct tho mistake I havo been
opposed to (his agreement as it Is
called from the first from the
time Chief Buflington appointed
his delegation in defiance ol tho ro-
quirements of our constitution '
and nothing has happened sinco
then to cause mo to chano my
view of it in the least.
1 pre m in n Tho Chieftain nccep.
ted my opinion of the lenso clause
(section 70) as published in tho
Tnhlequah Arrow as enough to
justify the conclusion that I favor-
ed the ratification of tho agree-
ment. If that section were the
only objectionable one in the
agroement I should certainly fa-
vor its ratification because as I
stated in tho Arrow. I believe it 1b
I do not favor the putting for-
ward a meaningless insignificant
lease clause one which no think-
ing fair man would presume to
compare witli the thirteenth seo-
tlmi nf the Curiirt hill propns.d to
he lepenlid hy the tigreement as
ih piiinu objection to an agree
meiit containing so ir.ntiy reully
outrageous provifaimiH. Neither
the peoplu I have the hohor lo
represent nor I prop ss t-i have
uur attention diverted from the
point at issue. We are opposed to
tliiH agreement for the many rea-
sons htretnfiire recordid in our
protests now on file in the depart-
ment at Washington City. We
shall stand behind thoso protests
and always respectfully continue
to ussert our rights as wo believe
them to be until suoh time as wo
may bn heard properly and our
claim finally determined accord-
ing lo the guarantees and reserva-
tions contained in the fundamental
law of the land tho constitution
of the United States.
