Vinita has not only cause for
congratulation upon a lair pros-
pect of ber ting the metropolis of
the India Territory but she has
more than one reason for being
proud of tho name it bears.
First becauso it is universally
concodod to bo tho prettiest and
most euphonious name of any city
in the Indian Territory.
And secondly on account of its
unusually romantic derivation.
While not in reality an Indian
name a many naturally suppoBO
yet tho Indians havo reason to bo
proud of the fact that the town
was christened by a Cherokee
and one of Hie most distinguished
of his race tho gifted Cornelius
Doudlnot. Not as a lawyer an
orator a statesman or a man of
advanced ideas lias 'he name of
Col. Doudlnot endeared itself to
his people but ho possessed in a
marked degree that admirable
quality of loving his follow men
and was by them beloved.
His talent for retined and pleas-
ant entertainment was of an unus-
ual order. He was the fascinating
exponent of interesting conversa-
tion sentiment and song. Tho
beauty and poetry of his naturo
found its happiest expression in
his songs. These wero his fiienda
and those who were enraptured by
them wero among the most hon-
ored in the laud. Many eminent
people were numbered among his
Few indeed of his race ever
stood bo high socially as he nor
received so profusely tho attention
usually bestowed upon genius.
On account of his advanced
ideas upon allotment and other
matters Col. Boudinot was for a
long period of time exiled from
his native country and ho made
the city of Washington his homo
fur many years. Twaa here bo
met tbo famous Vinnio Ream and
the mutual admiration and friend-
ship between the two is familiar
to all who knew him.
It is - fact well known to ivory
cilizHii of this country that the
town of Vinita was originally
called Downingvillo in honor of
Lewis Downing the distinguished
chief and as a matter of looal his-
tory equally worthy of notp tho
name was afterwards changed at
the instigation of Col. Boudinot
to ''Vinita" in honor ol hid first
love "Vinnle It-am" tho fam-ius
In the field uf art America
furnishes no greater name perhaps
certainly not among women than
that of Vinnio Ream Hoxie who
enjoyed the distinction of b-ing
the first woman who ever received
an order from the Uniied States
government for a statue.
During (ho civil war she woe
employed for a time in the post ol-
lice department in Wa-liingtou
D. C but subsequently studied
art and soon devoted her whole at-
tention to sculpture. Her work in
this line was so successful that
alio mado busts of Gen. Grant
Sherman Albert Pike Sheredy
Johnson and Thadeus Stevens
besides producing "The Indian
Girl" a full length figuro in
bronze the Marble "Mariatn"
and o'.hers of note. Her most im-
portant execution at this time was
the 6talue of Lincoln ordered by
the government and pluced in the
oapitol at Washington.
Vinnle Ream spent several
years abroad and perhaps her
most widly known statue is that of
Admiral Farrogut which was cast
in bronze from metal obtained
from the flag ship "Harlford"
and placed in Farragut square
Washington D. O.
She was married in May 1878
to Capt. Richard L. Hoxie of the
U S. corpB ot engineers.
Like the clasBia poet of Greece
many states and cities have
olaimed tho honor as tbo place of
her birth. That honor however
must bo bestowed upon Madison
Midi. whoio elm firbt saw the
light or day Sept 23 1840.
Though the placo of her birth has
been so far disputed yet it Is a
fact that hor piuenlH resided in
Fort Smith Arkansas during her
early youth and girlhood.
Whllo residing in Fort Smith
alio was at one time a Sunday
school pupil of Miss Abblo Wash-
bourne Bister ol the talented Ed-
ward Paeon Washbourne of "Ar-
kansas Traveler" fame
In viow of tho association with
hor narao tho citizens of this city
shouM feel a particular intorest in
tho llfo and character of Vinnio
Ream and Col. Boudinot. Let VI-
nita do oredit to tho beauty of her
namo by rising an a fair nlinu-
ment to perpetuate in memory the
friendship of two gifted spirits

rioro About the Treaty.
Blltor of the Chieftain:
Being nn ex-momber of the Na-
tional Council will havo a few
words to say in regard to tho
troaly between Bu(HngtonBell and
the Dawes commission.
In tho first placo tho Cherokco
commission was illegal so that
being the cobo tho whole transac-
tion is illegal. Articlo G page
20 section 3 constitution of the
Cherokco nation reads in this
light when tho national council
shall determino tho expediency of
appointing delegates or other pub-
lic agents for the purpose of trans-
acting business with tbo govern-
ment of tho United States the
principal chiol shall recommend
and by the advice and consent ol
the national committee appoint
and commission such dolegates and
public agents accordingly on all
matters of interest touching the
rights of tho citizens of this na-
tion which may requite the atten-
tion of the United States govern-
ment. We all know this law was not
complied with. Tho chief selected
the commission himself. I see
now from letters printed in the
papers that the commission that
ho selected is opposed to the
treaty and I think they am
right in opposing it. I think it is
ono of tho most daylight robberies
that ever was perpetrated on us
people. Wo mado a treaty with
the United States government Dec.
19 1890 an agreement concluded
between David H. Jerome Alfred
M. Wilson and Warren G. Sayre

the part of the United States and

them our land out west better
known as the strip They agreed
to put out tho intruders settle up
with us and pay ua what was due.
Did they do it? No. They got
our land and left the intruders
liere and they are hero yet watch-
ing thinking there will bo a chance
to rob theBo people out of their
homes yet. I call them a bad
class ot people. We sent Ribl F.
Wyly to Washington to find out
what was duo the nation. He re-
ported quite a sum Have tbey
paid it? Answer. No. They just
simply lied to get that land and
now are after the balance of our
1 notice there are parties that
have been lying around Washing-
tun trying to gt their fingers in
that boodle thai s due the Cheto-
kto nation from the government.
I ulso notice letters written from
Washington by some of our lob-
byists who have bsen out there
such men ns Rob't Owen and Rich-
urd Adams. Richard says the
treaty is all right; the mineral
clause don't amount to anything.
Poor deluded fool. Does he think
he can stuff thai down the people
who have to vote on that igree-
mout? It. might bo a flower in
Richard's cap if the treaty would
go and he could gel nil that land
set aside that 1b mentioned
in the treaty to pay his dead an-
cestors something he has been
working ut quite a while which is
a downright robbery. No Dick
we can't put any confidence in
what you say about the treaty if
we donato you that amount and
all our government buildings to
the United States and thousands
of acres for towntites and 1G0
acres to Willie Halsell college at
Vinita and why it was the Bap.
list Mission at Tahlequah only
got four ncres7 I don't see how
that was for Ben was thero with
Hoolie and a Baptist to boot. I
think if 1 had been Ben 1 should
have said to Hoolie four acres is
enough for either ono of the places
for we'll all be on the Bame footing
when we pasB over tho river of
Jordun and that is not near all
of the donations yet. Hero comes
Curtis and his syndicate to dig
right under us. What is left?
Nothing but the hide. 1b that all?
No! The M. K. A T. railroad
has got to have a part of the hide.
We will quoto tht not that was

Baa 1620000 acres of land to

10 acres of land in tho stale of
Kansas Tho records of the gen-
eral land ofilco also show that
5700 acres of railroad indnmnlly
lands located in Kansas have
been restored to the publlo do-
main. The company makes tut
report of the operation of its land
department but under llite head
"Pom's Manual of Rdilroads"
1895 page 530 ooutaifm the fol-
lowing: "Under acts of congress the
company received largo land
grants both in the stalo nl Kwieiis
and in the Indian Tmitory. Those
in the latter claim to amount to
3110400 acres subject to treaty
stipulations and lo tho extinguish-
ment of the Indian title. Tho
lands rocolved from tbo slato of
Kansas havo all boon sold. No
lands in tho Indian Territory
havo yot been reclved. On
March 3rd 1893 a hill wan passed
in the national cong'ress providing
for the appointment of a commis-
sion to investigate and roport to
the government as to tho expo
diency of oponlng up for settle
ment territory tributary to tho
Missouri Kansas & Texas rail-
way." Now voter theso aro facts. The
Dawes commission never has told
the people that their mission hero
is in tho interest ot the
railroad company. That is o
fact unlesB the secretary's re-
ports are untrue. Some will Bay
thai is all settled in the treaty. It
is a sad mistake. The railroad
companies have nover had any
show to enforce that law and
wont have until the Indian title is
extinguished. Section 51 of tbo
treaty reade; All lands to which
at the dale of the ratification of
this agreement any railroad com-
pany may under any treaty or act
of congress have a vested right for
right-of-way depot station ground
water stations stock yards or sim
ilar uses connected with the main-
tenance and operations of tho rail-
road. The company may claim
that they want that land for simi-
lar us is lo maintain their road.
Voters study these questions.
Don't let these fakes mislead you.
Turn out and vote against the
treaty for tho Curtis bill or tho
devil's bill cannot make it any
worse let come what may. I
see that the government has made
us United States uitiz-ns. It
seems to mo wo bhould ol had
deeds to our land first before be
coming citizBiis of tho United
States. Now if they can gel us to
break our title then we will bo-
come nothing more than home
steaders; then we leavu the gap
dorrn for tho railroad company to
get our laud. If thero is any left
we'll get 80 acres und a lease
plastered over it if that trea'y is
ratified so I am in hopes that the
cilizeus of our country will all
stand tocethei and defeat it for
the interest of their families. I
see a letter from Judge Sprioger
saying tho treaty is good. I read
it over and over and failed to find
the good part. If ho can't do any
better than lo advise us lo commit
