Fi;om present indications it
looks as though the Maves cam-
paign would be conducted by a lot
ot hlatent blatherskites calling
themselves "hoys." A few more
such publications as the "Devil's

history as the devil's campaign.
Jilt l'.i siiYUKAii's remarks in
his letter of acceptance in regard
to the cow law are woilh many
pages of such stud' as the balance
of that document is composed of.
Some of his fi ieuds say that ht: is
for allotment. If such is the ease
he should cut the matter short by
Thi:i:k is something significant
in the unbroken unanimity of the
independent sentiment throughout
this country. The great masses of
citizens are of one accord in their
declarations for a change. A new
senate and council is inevitable.
The old politicians may read the
hand-writing nil the wall.
ll'' a certain very olliciotis gen-
tleinai(?) in this town presists in
meddling with the affairs of this
jiaper and maligning its editor by
writing letters over the country
falsifying the facts we propose to
give him an airing personally
through the columns of this paper
such as he has never had since he
has lived in this countrv.
If Chief Mayes would shut the
mouths of a few "blow-hards" in
this country who are trying to
make people believe that his
administration litis been a
faultless one he would very
materially increase his chances
of success. It is the "loaves
and li.-hes" these fellows are
after anyhow and the sooner
he shuts them off the better. He
like Cicsar needs to be "protected
from his friends."
Tin coining Alliance convention
at C'lareinorc bids fair to be a very
interesting gathering. The more
conservative element of all politi-
cal parties are in favor of just such
a movement as this promises to be.
If a ticket is to be put out there is
no lack of material to make it a
good one. For the senate orcoun-
cil we could name ex-Senator
LineDey V. L. Trott Judge Clin-
gan Marmie Daniels and many
others who would do valiant ser-
vice for the nation men who
realize and appreciate the situa-
tion nod are nut-spoken on all the
questions of tli o day.
Sumk of the eiiiiee-sei kcrs of the
country toe working upon the sym-
pathies of their frie nds claiming
their support merely upon the
ground of peiso'nai friendship.
Relationship should not stand in
the way one minuite when it is ap-
jiareiit that the iiilerc-ts of tut-people
are not safe in their hands.
The man that is elected iooulce this
year should be in entire accord
with the ih mands of the times and
the promises of the chronic; olllce-
seikcr should not be taken for
tuicht. If there is anything he
would lo t promise it is because
nobodv a-ks biin lo do so.

THE SAME OLD ORY
The Arrow undertake to say
that those who favor allotment are
a class (if people w ho have no hind
to allot and no money to divide.
Tio) Icier of endorsement both
public and private that are com-
ing in by almost every mail and
from some of the input eminent
citizens by hlmitl from all parts of
this nation are evidence to us that
the position this paper has taken
on allotment of hinds and running
litis government by taxation is a
very popular one. Further some
of the leading lights ot the Nation-
al party are advocating allotment
to-day. The Arrow hints at a long
since exploded idea that an adopt-
ed citizen should havo nothing to
say in regard to the administration
of this government. It presumably
rellccts the ideas of tho party for
which it is the mouth-piece and
which pledges itself to the protec-
tion of nil ( hisses of citizens in its
recent platform. Tho Arrow very
facetiously remarks that there is no
reason why the C'herokees as a na-
tion and as individuals should not
have a surplus in store. The par-
ty for which that paper pretenels
to speak has had u great deal to do
with the affairs of this government
and we would like to ask some-
thing about that surplus. Where
is it? When we look for a sur-
plus we find a deficit. And w hen
we talk about allotment we don't
mean to lessen anybody's rights.
We simply want everyone's prop-
erty pointed out to them so they
will know how much and where it
is. We hiy it down as a proposi-
tion that holding hinds in common
h (i failure and litis had a thor-
ough test in this country and we
want a change. Tho perpetuation
of this Cherokee government as
ti government everyone snould de-
she ami work for but the present
; fit cm is wrong. It does not bear
upon all alike tool can not and will
not stand unless something is
done to preserve the rights of the
poor and check the monopolistic
tendency of the present system.
Hut according to the Arrow the
National party will never do it.
Of course the robber is not going
to send for the police.
HE IS NOT THE MOSES.
M r. I'lUshyhead in his letter of
aacccptaiice says; "Our system of
government must be perpetuated;
so says the platform and I heart-
ily concur." I'nder the present
system monopoly has unbridled
sway; the heel of the rich is grind-
ing the life out of the poor. There
is actually no limit to the power
of wealth. To perpetuate all the
evils of which these people are
complaining viz. the unequal and
unjust system of taxation; the pro-
tection (f the grazing monopo-
lies; the leaving open of the flood-
gates at which the intruders aro
pouring in and hist but not least
the temptation and inducement of-
fered to "boodlers" and lobbyists
both in and out of this country;
the desire to feed at the public
crib; the great scramble for ollice
wherein men spend many times
the amount of their salaries; our
lands and money arc going like
the waters of a fast flowing river.
Within a few years our landed in-
terests have dwindled down from
fourteen million to less than five
million ; the invested funds
the interest of which at one
time was more than sufli-
cient to run this government
are now falling far short and every
department of this government is
being run on a credit to-day. And
yet this is the system of govern-
ment you would perpetuate. You
would feed the people with th
same "swill" that the two edd par-
ties are feeding them upon. No
Mr. liushyhead you are not the
Mo.-cs we are looking for to lead
us from bondage. You offer no'
remedy for the existing evils;
you only point them otitnnd desire
to perpetuate the system that
brought them into existence. Your
party is not a whit better than
either of the old parties.
A NEW DISPENSATION.
Now it came to pass about the
end of the fifth month that a great
multitude ofcanditI.it.es multiplied
upon the lace of the earth.
Ami each loan desired to take
unto himself an office. And every
one both great and small was
willing lo accept even the highe.-t
ot'tit e in the land.
And they lifted up their voices
and said "As our fathers done
eve n o do we; were they not wise
in their day and generation ?
Now why should we not follow in
their fo4 steps? We will perpetu-
ate this 'system' ami hand it dow n
vta hand it down even unim-
paired." Hut the w ise men answered and
said luilo them: "Co to; thy
fathers' day and generation bath
become a back number; we are
(baling now with the current is-
sues. le!if Id all is changed and
in our day and generation we
npil 'tumble to the racket' t'f
pr. sent t 'juircioen!?."
And when the wise men had
thus spoken the others gathered
tl.eni-elvi s up and ( nth man shook
hi h' a I and they went their way
every man unto his own home.
THJJ SITUATION BUMMED UP.
The Platforms Muoh Alike but the
People Differently Mixed.
I iiki.su A Ink. Tmi Slny Itl. Is'-'l .
KiTroH Cm hi' tain: Having no-
ticed the platforms ol the three
parties in this nation and after a
careful examination I liud hut lit-
tle (lilletrence on the points most
essential to our people. Tho Lib-
erals start out with a lot of where-
ases condemning tho present ad-
ministration for extravagance and
carelessness and cursing it for ap-
pointing relatives to oll'icc: also
having an unnecessary number of
secretaries. With this we can line!
no fault. Rut nominating a man
to head a reform ticket who has
shown himself on record to bo ill
the same line wo fail to see the
consistency. Those charges were
brought against liushyhoiid four
years ago by some of tho very men
who were the most zealous in se-
curing his nomination in a relorm
move. Hoys arc you honest or
are you wanting ollice only ? Or
has your conduct been so you could
not get ollice in the old parties?
It looks as if we would have a
lively canvass during this summer.
I hoped tho liberal movement
would show to the Cherokee peo-
ple that they desired to work for
the common interest of our citizens
regardless ol special favors nnd
as much as possible do away w ith
those who have aided in bringing
us to what we are We aro bound
to have a change of medicine to
cure such a chronic caseot striving
for ins and outs. As to Mayes he
is public property; when ho elocs
wrong hit him as a patriot nnd
with patriotic; motives. Are you
not aware that the old scab will be
raised from "Bushy." this summer
which will show the $2250(1 the
728000 indebtedness lo the
United States to-day ami twice re-
jected by his old party; also kicked
out of the chief's ollice by Hooly
and Mates before ho would sur-
render? Also if elected would
have "Quilik'y" hack to get more
7 1-2 per cent collections on the
strip; also charged with only
wanting J12o(X)0 for lease eif the
strip lending aid ami influence in
that direction against the interest
of his people and probably many
other things. llooly explained
how he paid the nation out of debt
four years ago at Vinita when
liushyhead accused him of not
turning over to the Cherokee na-
tion the strip taxes. Where does
the merit come in ? We tiro anx-
ious to know. We have hit Mayes
heretofore. The people should
know who they are to vote lor.
As to llenge he might fool us
but we have our opinion of his
party which paid out So 511 at
last session of council for extra
clerk hire and lire makers a
shame. Ifitwasnot for Hedge's
surroundings I fear he would ever
have been left in the corn field as
probably that honorable position
would suit him best. He belongs
to a family that looks only fr per-
sonal interest. This is the great
incentive as shown from past po-
litical history. And such a weak
platform on the stile of the strip
the paramount question on this
canvass. "(Jet thee out." Some-
thing dark in that clause; laying
a trap for someone to get into
the purse probably.
Neither party has adopted metis-
ures to relieve the common tax-
payer from his unequal burden.
All are willing to oppress the poor
ignorant people and not lead them
into the light of equal taxation
and justice. "We know it is right
but fear the people can not be con-
vinced in time to win in the pres-
ent election." Are you not think-
ing this oflice seekers ? Is it not
your duty to inform the people
who are to-day slaves of the injus-
tice done them under present
mode of raising revenue? If we
don't wish to withdraw our inves-
ted fund let us draw the interest
thereon and pay it out per capita
and raise a revenue by direct tax.
This would relieve the poor man
from such unfair taxation and
would leave him a bonus after
paying bis tax; it would also make
the wealthy pay in proportion to
his required protection. Is this
not honest? The party who does
not possess manhood enough to
openly defend the interest of the
common people certainly does not
merit their confidence or support
and should be required to take a
position in a Salt river steamer
next August. We need not be
alarmed but what our government
will run and be more respected
and stronger. The amount go- j
ing to each poor person will over- j
pay his tax the remainder he j
keeps thus making money fr the!
poorer class. Hy this plan the j
man with the big farms and lots ;
of tlieni and other properly arc j
the ones who will pay your tax.
Indian we are talking for you and !
want ymi to stop and count awhile i
before you vote. Let us go for j
what is right party or no party.!
We see but little chance for relief'
in either of the three parties as
they now appear. We only find !
in then) what has heretofoie been'
in the different declarations; the j
people leading them are different- j
iy mixed is the only material
change. If we have to take choice
from the three candidates in the;
field we should consider their j
honesty integrity patriotism and '
favorable surroundings after being
elected as we only pay S20i for !
that privilege that being the1
amount each voter pays to sup- ;
port the nation every four years i
Let every voter have independence j
enough to show up all those whtij
aspin; ti ollice in their true light.
Hy so doing we may det r some of j
those would-be leaders w ho are so i
corrupt Irom becoming public
As to Delawares Shawnecs and
freedinen all the platforms havo!
the same ring pledging equal J
right with Cherokecs by blood ac- j
coiding to treaty. Of course the j
Cherokee are to be the judges of
what that right is as heretofore.
In all can. lor let us have the true ;
st itus of those parties settled. It j
i to our interest as well as to
theirs. We have too many par-
ties among us with varied inter
ests thereby not giving tho unily
in matters of importance that we
should have. From past experi-
ence it is a matter tho parties
most interested in are hardly pre-
pared to settle satisfactorily to all.
Why not refer the whole matter
to some judicial tribunal ol the
United States and altera fair rep-
resentation of the whole matter
ask for a decision which shall bo
final also including tho adopted
white man? We have been vexed
with this question- ever since tho
war anil will oonlinuo to bo if left
alone. Those adopted by treaty
are no doubt wearied over politi-
cal promises in the shape of plat-
forms. As ever

THE REVERSE SIDE.
Ike Rogers Gives the Colored
' i'olka' Position.
Knrroii Chikktaix: Will you
permit mo to inform the public
through the columns of your pa-
per the facts concerning the
late trouble between the colored
people and the ollicers of Coowees-
cooweo district when thev at
tempted to sell the improvements
of (lie colored people.
First we knew il was a viola-
tion of the: law the way that af-
fairs were being carried on. The
sixth article of the treaty of lW(i
provides that all laws shall be in
unuoriiiiiy inrougnoiu saiu nation
and the same law says '-nor shall
anyone be deprived of his life
rights or properly without a due
process of law" whereby all
should be treated alike in accor-
dance with law. Knowing that
the laws were not being carried
out as stated above wo com-
menced our appeals first io the
U. S. agent but he was in Wash-
ington. We memorialized tho in-
terior department and scut to our
own chief but could get no an-
swer or satisfaction.
Now 1 ask the public what are
we to do keep still and be sold
out or rebel against the unlawful
acts that were being perpetrated on
us? Wo have seen in" the papers
that we were threatening the lives
and property of others I will say
for all that there were no such
threats made by us. It was not
our intention to run over the coun-
try to kill people and destroy
property as was reported. All we
ask is peaceful possession of the
homes we now occupy. We are
law-abidinc people yet we will
protect ourselves when we cannot
get protection through our laws.
The ollicers sold Alberty out and
we said nothing yet those who aro
acquainted with tho affair know it
was not done legally .
(J. W. Lane is an iutcr-married
man here as he married a Chero-
kee freedwouiaii and the children
of this woman are with their father
the said (i. W. Lane and they
drew their per capita money the
saute as the other freedinen did.
The agent undo no dilb rcncc in
paying these people and it was
supposed that those who bail
drawn their money would he till
right hereafter. Then to allow
such Siiles to go on would be the
death of any man who c.iuie in
heie ami married one of cur daugh-
ters. If I have all the rights of a
native Cherokee suiely my daugh-
ter would have the same rights as
your daughter would. You talk
about adoption; we are not of that
cla-s of people; we never came
here from Kansas Missouri orTcx-
a to be adopted into this nation.
We were born here; this is our
birthplace and I think it would be
a hard matter for the Cherokecs to
adopt one of their own family.
Two-thirds ed the negroes of this
tribe are mixed with Indian blood
and will be called Indians when
I have endeavored to nhow the
cause of this trouble. 1 hope the
good thinking members of this na-
tion will not blame us fordoing as
we did in this aflair.
Matters were made larger than
thev actually were. I. II.

' ALLIANCE PRINCIPLES
As Promulgated by Cooweeeooo-
wee County Union.
The following declaration (d
plimiples was adopted by the
Cherokee citizens belonging to the
Farmers' Alliance & Industrial Un-
ion of Coowecsconwco district
at the C'liinty union held at
Chtremore I. T. April l'.th 1S'.1:
Whereas The general condition
of our tountry imperatively
demands unity of action on the
part of the I.tboiing chi-ses and
the dissemination of principles
best calculated to encourage and foo-
ter agricultur.il ami mcchanic.il
pursuits in order that they may
derive a just remuneration for
their labor and to secure to the
laboring and agricultural ela-scs
the greatest amount of good hold
to the principle that all monopo-
lies are dangerous to the best in-
terests of the country and il fos-
tered will eventually enslave a
free people anil subvert ami finally
overthrow the great principles
bought and paid for by the blood
and treasure of our forefathers
we therf.re adopt the following as
our declirati m ol principles:

trine of equal rights to ail and cs-

Vouih-' for trade
pedal privileges to none we de-
mand that the legislation of the
Cherokee nation shall be so Iramcd
in tho future as not to build up one
industry at the expense and injury
of others and we are opposed to
the mouoply of land water and
all other gilts of nature.
'2mi. That we believe that the
money of tho coir.it ry should bo re
tained in tho hands of its peole;
therefore we demand that till
national revenues shall be limited
to the necessary expenses of the
nation economically administered;
and that wei aro unalterably op-
posed to a national interest-paying
;!ui) That we favor the sale of
all the lands west of longitude '.Kl
belonging to the Cherokee nation
at the rate of ?:i.(Kl per acre pro-
vided that the United States gov-
ernment will guarantje the re-
moval of all intruders and abrogate
the loth article of the treaty of
lSiil'i. And in order that each cit-
izen receive bis or her pro rata
share of said moneys wo further
require the United Slates govern-
ment to distribute the aforesaid
moneys to each Cherokee citizen
that lias leached the age of eigh-
teen years at the time of first pay-
iiient'itud that a payment be an-
nually made by said government
to those citizens that have arrived
at the age of eighteen until said
funds are exhausted and equitably
-lrir. That the number of im-
provements being made and pub-
lic roads fenced up on our public
domain ami for many oilier good
nnd sullicieut reasons we are com-
pelled to demand the survey of
our country into sections thereby
providing for public roads and to
enable our citizens to better locate
their farms and build permanent
improvements and homes.
5tii. That the revenues for the
support of tiny government should
hear equally upon tfioro that re-
ceive its benefits and realizing the
present mode of raising revenues
in the Cherokee nation is unequal
and unjust that we are in favor of
a direct tax em property and in-
comes and withdrawing all
funds belonging to the Cherokee
nation paying it out per capita
save and except an amply sufli-
eieilt fund for ethical ional purposes
and for the support ol our orphans
and their education.
I'rni. That we demand that the
United States government shall
establish a uniform system and
price for tho travel and' transpor-
iation of passengers and freight on
all railroads in the United States
and especially in the Indian Terri-
ttiry. Till. That we are satisfied that
it is practically impossible for us to
successfully cultivate our lands
without skilled labor therefore
we favor just and equitable laws in i
rclercnce to llie pieiuiueu citizens
of this nation.
8th. (Jood government being
essential to the safety and hap-
piness of all its inhabitants and as
such cannot be expected if ignorant
selfish and incompetent men are
selected and elected to ollicial po-
sitions we do not favor ami will
not support such for ollice.
tii . That we request the Con-
gress of the United States to pro-
vide by law means to vindicate
and decide till claims and ques-
tions pertaining to the lands and
moneys of the Cherokee nation in j
the supreme court ol tho l ill toil
