0.:u friend Jno 1'. Drake of
Chelsea has accepted tho nomina-
tion for district judge on the Alli-
ance ticket and has been endorsed
by both the Liberals and Nation-
als. Better material for tlie judge-
ship could not bo found in the dis-
trict and we predict a walk over
for Mr . Drake.
We do not want the country to
lorget that Chief Mayes was offered
one dollar per head import tax on
cattle and accepted fifty cents.
The people should also remember
that the cattle law was passed by
an overwhelming majority hence
the necessity for a brand new coun-
cil and senate.
Sk.natok 13iu. and John II. Beck
addressed the colored people of
this city Thursday night on the
importance of voting for Hoolie
Bell in the comingelection. Much
enthusiasm was manifested and
they cheered each other lustily.
There is something very remark-
able about these two fellows of late.
They haven't joined anew party
for better than two weeks.
A wkoxo impression as to the
position some of our leading cat-
tlemen occupy on the allotment
question is a sourco of much need-
less censure upon that class of citi-
zens. Every man is supposed to
look after his own interests and it
is right and proper that they
should do so. It is unreasonable
to expect them to take the inith-
tive in a movement that would be
detrimental to their interests.
In their zeal the party organs of
Loth the Mayes and National
parties are out-running their dis-
cretion and are more injurious
then helpful in the cause in which
they are enlisted. They ore just
now engaged in a tirade against the
independent movement that lias
been inaugurated in this country.
It seems that there is some dis-
satisfaction among the managers
of the Mayes campaign in regard
to the distribution of funds. Money
has been plentiful and has flowed
like water. No discretion what-
ever has been used in its distribu-
tion. Men of no political stand-
ing whatever have been paid large
sums of money and above all the
matter has been "talked."
We take advantage of the lull in
the news to gratify R. A. Hosey of
"State Alliance" fame by noticing
him. In regard to his statement
that The Chieftain is a "dead let-
ter with the Alliance" we will sav
thatllosey is a "liar by the watch."
The Chieftain prints more Alli-
ance newj and is read and en-
dorsed by more Alliance men than
every other paper in the Cherokee
nation. But then we can't stop
to throw etone3 at every cur that
gets in the way. Hosey should
change drinks before writing an-
A ROW IN DAMP.
Tho contest for tho nomination
for clerk at the National conven-
tion of Cooweescoowee district
was a hot onq and ended with
much dissatisfaction. The con-
vention had been going on in the
absence of several delegates and
nominations had been declared
until it came to the clerk and
when tho voto was taken Mr.
Teeco Chambers had a majority
of ono over Hardin Trott. Cham-
bers' nomination .was not declared
and "log-rolling" at once began ; a
break-up-in-a-row was imminent.
At length tho confusion subsided
sufficiently to take another vote and
Mr. Trott received a majority and
was at once declared the nominee.
Mr. Chambers' friends quietly sub-
mitted but will fight Trott to a
finish at the polls.
WHO WAS CHIEF ?
Four years ago when Joel B.
Mayes was running for chief he
promised the peoplo all over
this country that if they would
elect him he would be chief. Has
he 'always been chief? Mr. V.
K. Ilalsell stated publicly at Chel-
sea last Monday that he "was the
man that passed the cow law that
had been talked of so much and
that he told Joel Mayes that if ho
did not sign it ho would pass it
over his head and he signed it."
Fellow citizens 1 honor bright !
who was chief on that occasion ?
Aye lot us go further who was
chief and council and senate on
that sad and long-to-be-remember-ed
occasion ? With shame-faced-ness
and humiliation beyond all
power of pen to describo we are
bound to say that Mr. Hal-
Hell was both chief and council
WHY THEY OPPOSE IT.
A prominent cattleman of this
town said on tho street iii a con-
versation a few days ago that if
this country was allotted
not one man in ten would bo able
to buy the improvements that
would be on the land that he might
select. This " lets the cat out;"
this is the idea of justice the cattlo
barons have. If the land was al-
lotted there would be no buying to
do. It one man's fence surround-
ed another's land he would not
be forced to buy it ; of course the
owner of the fence could move it
if lie saw proper. No the idea is
just this : it is the grass they are
contending for and a hope of hold-
ing all they occupy. If this sys-
tem of monopoly goes on another
four years a poor man cannot find
room on the public domain to build
a cabin. The question is some-
times asked why don't everybody
go out and make farms ? We tell
you they are not ablo and for that
reason they arc forced to let the fav
oi ed ones occupy that which is just
ly theirs. But a few of our wealth
iest men are in favor of a division
which speaks well for their sense
ofiusticeand riirht. Tliey have
loo much regard for right to op
pose a movement that would give
to the poor that which justly be
longs to them.
CONFLICT OF AUTHORITY.
It is to be regretted that our
public men and officials cannot
airree as to the best means of
conducting the affairs of this gov
eminent. We noticed recently a
letter of Treasurer Itoss' in which
ho asks the chief to co-operate with
him in trying to collect the tax oil
the cattlo on the strip. Instead of
co-operating with Boss. Chief
Mayes takes the matter into his
own hands and sends Lee Crutch
held to the trip with no vestige
of authority to collect the tax.
The result will be a conflict be
tween the chief and treasurer in
point of authority and the cattle
go free of tax as is probably the
understanding between Mayes and
the cattlemen. When the fencing
was being removed from the strip
Mr. Mayes claimed that he was en
tirely powerless to do anything
whatever as his authority did not
extend over the strip. The upper
most idea now with the cattlemen
is how to get Mayes elected again.
In our opinion tho peoplo of this
nation know nothing of the evils
of monopoly as compared to what
they would experience were the
Mayes party continued another four
years in office. As the strip will
surely pass from our hands soon
the Insatiable greed of the cattle
barons will then be turned loose
upon us cast of 90 and the poorer
classes will know something of
"how miserable is man when the
foot of the conqueror is on his

partment of its government and in

The abore we quote from Chief
Mayes' annual message Nov. (5
18S8. Mr. Mayes says at that time
there was means to maintain every
department of the government. In
the name of God how is it then
that every department of this gov-
ernmrnt is being run on credit?
Further along in the same message
Mr. Mayes says: "To prevent tho
spread of disease among native
cattle tho introduction of foreign
cattlo should bo restricted to tho
winter mtiHth$.t Tho chief seems
to have undergone a very great
chango of heart in regard to tho in-
troduction of foreign cattle. lie
is now of tho opinion that Texas
cattle will not disease native cattle
and has affixed his signature to a
bill extending tho timo far into th.)
spring. When Chief Mayes deliv-
ered the message above referred to
he was on the side of the people
and a majority of tho people with-
out regard to party were plaased
with the actions of Joel B. Mayes.
But he has fallen from grace the
funds are no longer sufficient to
run tho government and Texas
cattle no longer breed contagious
A WICKED PH ACTIOS.
The homage which the peoplo
pay to the memory of men after
they are dead is in proportion to
iheir honesty and integrity while
living. This fact ought to impress
upon young men especially the
priceless value of an upright and
blameless life. True patriotism
and unselfish devotion to truth
never did nor never will fail of its
just reward. Though the recom-
pense sometimes never comes un-
til after death it is none tho less
eloquent for that reason because
it teaches a lesson to the living
Men of very meager abilities
have risen to prominence
through honesty and integrity
while bright talented young men
have sunk into oblivion because
nobody had any confidence
in them. But for older men and
those who have had experience to
set traps and pit-falls for tho un-
wary young men of our country
deserves the contempt of all lib.
erty-loving people. Tho point we
wish to make is just this : The
custom of corrupting and buying
the influence of struggling young
men who happen to be poor
is too prevalent in this country.
The tiling should bo swept from
the politcs of the country and its
perpetrators relegated to tho rear.
WHERE DID THEY GO?
Those 216 Negro Votes in Ooo-
I.KN AI'AII I . T. Jtltitt.. Ml.
Editor Chieftain : Will you
allow mo space in tho columns of
your paper to ask who cut the
vote of the colored citizens down
to 124 in this district and why
it was done ?
Cooweescoowee always polls
325 to 310 colored votes and I
would like to know when the court
was convened and they cut out 210
that were always recognized as
citizens by the Cherokee nation.
It seemed to mo the court trying
colored cases would give a man a
chance to come with his witnesses
to prove whether he had a right or
not. Because tho colored people
are powerless to do anything for
themselves such treatment is very
Tho Cherokees know that every
officer that has been elected in
Cooweescoowee district was elected
by tho 3-10 colored votes. Our
chief was elected by this voto and
if that is illegal then all your offi-
cers areilleg.nl. To try a man for his
rights without his being present is
a law I am not acquainted with.
I thought the law held a man inno-
cent until ho was proven guilty
after being summoned to appear
with his witnesses before the
court which was not done in this
case. I would like for some one
to tell me when and where tins
court was in session and who was
the judge. I thought our chiel
paid strict attention to those rules
hut I will say --.if he lets every
one tamper with them that so de-
sires it accounts lor tho 2Hi voles
lost since 1881). I hate to think
that affairs are run in such a man-
ner at our capital and that all the
burden is thrown on the negro.
When the officers start to put in-
truders out they will start fur some
negro neighborhood to find them
and tho negro must go even if he
never was out of the nation before.
Such things are very bad to exist
in a country like this. I guess
tho gentlemen M'ho have done this
have retired from office and do
not need the support of the negroes
any longer; I think we know them
all. Mr. Mayes told the negro
that if lie didn't do something or
recommend to his councilors to
do something for them they
(the negroes) could go back
on them. They also sang the same
song two years ago and what have
they done for our good? All I
can see that they have done for us
is to tn to sell us out what no
other party has ever done but the
grand Mayes party "the only
friends the negro has ever had"
to let them tell it. We know them
and have heard them sing the
death song to the negro for many
a year and we nave hail a plenty
and do not want to hear any more
of Mayes' death songs so we w ill
pray for them.
Ouh portly friend Hardin Trott
is stirred to the depths of his soul
over the prospect of seeing the
clerk's offico pass into the hands
of another. His friends say he
has the finest set of books any-
body ever saw. His books may
look good to a casual observer
but how about the false entry in
the Neilson hay case ? Trolt's
books would show that Mr. Neil-
son paid the royalty on tho Gth of
May and the evidence in court
would show that it pa? not paid
until Mav the 17th. An v case on
earth could he beaten by tamper-
ing with the record a bad prui.
dent to establish indeed.

As Promulgated by Cooweesooo-
wee County Union.
Hie following declaration of
principles was adopted by the
Cherokee citizens belonging to tho
Fanners' Alliance it Industrial Un
ion of Cooweescoowee district
at the county union held at
Claremoro. I T.. April 15th lS'.tl:
Whereas The general condition
of our country imperatively
demands unity of action on the
part of the laboring classes and
the dissemination of principles
bcstralculated to encourageand fos-
ter agricultural and mechanical
pursuits in order that they may
derive a just remuneration for
their labor and to secure to the
laboring and agricultural cla.-ses
tho greatest amount of good hold
to tho principle that all monopo-
lies are dangerous to the best in-
terests of the country and it fosa
ercd will eventually enslave a
free people and subvert and finally
overthrow the great principles
bought and paid for by the blood
and treasure of our forefathers
we therforo adopt the following as
our declaration of principles:
1st. That believing in the doe-
ti ine of equal rights to all and es-
pecial privileges to none we de-
mand that the legislation of the
Cherokee nation shall be so framed
in the future as not to build up one
industry at the expense and injury
of others and we are opposed 'to
tho inonoply of land water and
all other gifts of nature.
2nd. That wo believe that the
money of the cou-lfry should be re-
tained in tho hands of its peole;
therefore we demand that all
national revenues shall be limited
to the necessary expenses of the
nation economically administered;
and that wo are unalterably op-
posed to a national interest-paying
3un That we favor the sale of
all the lands west of longitude '.III
belonging to tho Cherokee nation
at the rale of J-'l.tn) fier acre pro-
vided that the I'nited States gov-
ernment will guarantee the re.
moval of all intruders and abrogate
the loth article of the treaty of
lS(U) And in order that each cit-
izen receive his or her pro rata
share of said moneys we further
require the I'nited States govern-
ment to distribute the aforesaid
moneys to each Cher ikee citizen
that has reached the age of eigh-
teen years at the time of first pay-
ment and 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 cxh .iti-ted and equitably
Itii. That the number of im-
provements being made and pub-
lic roads fenced up on our public
domain and for many other good
ami sullieieiit reasons we are com-
pelled ti demand the survey of
our country into sections thereby
providing for public roads and to
enable our citizens to better locate
tin ir farm" and build permanent
improvement and homes.
oru. That the revenues for the
"tippoit of any government should
bear equally Upon those that re-
ceive its bent lils and realizing the
present moile ot raising revenues
in the Cherokee nation is uuequ al
ami unjust that we are it) favor of
a direct tax on property and in-
comes and withdrawing all
funds belonging to the Cherokee
nation paying it out per capita
save and except an amply suffi-
cient fund for educational purposes
and tor the support o our orphans
and their education.
I'iiii. That we demand that the
I'nited States government shall
establish a uniform system and
price for the travel ami tr.tn-por-tatioti
of passenger and freight on
all railroads in the I'nited Slates
and especially in the Indian Terri-
tory. Till. That we are satisfied that
it is practically impossible for us to
successfully cultivate our lands
without skilled labor therefore
w e favor just and equitable laws in
reference to the prenntte I citizens
of this nation.
iSru. Hood government being
essential to the safety and hap
piness of all its inhabitants and as j
siu h cannot be expected if ignorant ;
incompetent mii nro t
selected aim elecletl to ollicial n-
.sitioiis we tlo not favor and will
not support such for oflice.
I'th. That we request the Con-
gress of the I'nited States to pro-
vide by law nieanj to vindicate
and decide all claims and ques-
tions pertaining to the lands and
moneys of the Cherokee nation in
the supreme court of tho United
10. And we also demand of our
council measures of such a charac-
ter an will juntly and legally settle
the citizenship question in the
Cherokee nation especially of
those claimants who were Ipto
prior to 1 sst;.
11. That we lt mand that next
council pas such laws as will make
it impossible and impracticable to
monopolize the pu'dic (Ionian and
estop the universal leasing of all
our lands ea-t on t"'0.
12. And that we further demand
of the next coiin. il sn. h legislation
as will ab .li-li the uh L -tle hrib-
ery and debauchery of our tlec-
tions and thereby make it impos-
sible for honest and pure nu n to
13. Lastly and in conclusion in
view of tho enormous extravagance
and corruption of the present ad-
ministration and the enactment of
class legislation by our council and
senate approved by our chief we
see no security in perpetuating our
present form of government except
by allottingour lands in severally
and retaining our present tribal or-
ganization. Therefore wo pledge
ourselves to support no candidate
who will not pledge themselves to
carry out these demands.

Tho outlook for tho Farmers'
Alliance in Cooweescoowee district
was never blighter then at this
present time. Harmony prevails
and the coming meeting at Chelsea

greatest meeting in the history of
the order in this country. It is
earnestly hoped that every sub-
tiiiiou in the district will have a
full representation and especially
those west of the Verdigris river
as a closer relationship is very de-
sirable at this present time in view

ing part in the great political
struggle that is shaking this coun-
try from center to circumference.
