Intermarried Claimants in the
Cherokee Nation Can Re-
linquish Holdings In Fa-

The following order which is self
explanatory has been issued by Tarns
Bixby commissioner to the Five Civil
ized Tribes :
Department of the Interior Commis
sioner to the Five Civilixed Tribes
Muskogee Indian Territory:
"In the matter of the relinquish.
ment of selections of allotment or
portions thereof made by intermarried
claimants to citizenship in the Chero
kee Nation the records of this office
"That immediately after August 7
1902. the date of the ratification of
the Act of Congress approved July 1
1002 (32 SUts. L. "16) known as the
Cherokee Agreement the Commission
to the Five Civilized Tribes began the
preparat ion of the final rolls of citi-
zens of the Cherokee Nation Including
those who claim right to enrollment
in said Nation by reason of inter-marriage
with said tribe and from time
to time as soon as portions of said
rolls were completed transmitted
these schedules to the Honorable Sec-
retary of the Interior for his approval.
"That among the schedules so ap-
proved there were included the names
of eleven hundred and forty-five ( 1145)
who claimed the right to enrollment
as citizens by intermarriage of said
"That upon the opening of the
Cherokee Land Ollice at Vinita In-
dian Territory 1 n January 2 1902 ior
the reception of selections of allot-
ment and designations of homesteads;
"That in many cases t he intermar-
ried claimants including those who
had been finally approved by the Hon-
orable Secretary of the Interior and
whose applications were at that time
pending designated as their allot-
ments lands upon which were located
their home places their most valuable
holdings believing that there was
little doubt as to their final enroll
ment in view of the favorable action
thereon as to a number of said appli
cants by tfic Commission to the Five
Civilized Tribes and by the Secretary
of the Interior.
"That on February 24 1903 the Sec-
retary of the Interior referred the
rights of intermarried claimants to
fifizt-nshin in the Cherokee Nation to
the United States Court of Claims for
determination and at that time said
Commission was instructed to take no
further action in the matter of the
enrollment of such claimants until a
decision had been rendered by said
Court of Claims in the matter of their
right to enrollment.
"That on the 15th day of May l'JOa
the United States Court of Claims
rendered its decision holding adversely
to the claimants for e rollment as
citizens by intermarriage of the said
Cherokee Nat ion fid an appeal was
thereafter taken 1r .n said decision to j
the Supreme Ciu.x of the United
States where the matter is uow pend-
ing. 'That the Commission to the Fiv3
Civilized Tribes and its successor the
Commissioner to the Five Civilized
Tribes have received numerous appli-
cations from this class of claimants
petitioning that they be permitted to
relinquish their selections or portions
thereof which include their improve-
ments in order that so 1 e memU-r of
their family may be filed upon s lid
lands thus protecting them from
selection thereof by some stranger.
"It is further a matter of record in
this otlice thac many familiesof inter-
married claimants of said Na Jon have
completed their selections of allot-
ment and compliance with the re-
quest above noted will necessitate
favorable action upon applications to
relinquish allotments or parts thereof
heretofore made to citizen members of
families of these intermarried claim-
ants in order that they may Le filed
upon tracts containing the improve-
ments owned by and which have bu n
selected by said intermarried claim-
ants as their own allotment select ions.
"As many of these intermarried
claimantslhave had set apart to them-
selves from their holdings lands which
contain their most valuable improve-
ments and a refusal to prant their
prajerto relinquish said holdings in
faxor cf an enrolled member cr mem-
bers of their families may do 1 hem
irreparable injury and cause them to
lose valuable lmproemtrits owned by
. To the general announcement of the arrival of full lines for fall which will soon

A Word on Cottons
It may seem strange to learn that it is impossible to buy brown muslins out of
many wholesale houses but such is the case. There js a heavy shortage and cotton
fabrics are advancing daily in price. We were fortunate in buying heavily before the
present advances and until present stock is exhausted will give our friends the benefit
of the old prices. Our advice is to buy early and buy all you want as later you will
have to pay more.
No house in Vinita who did not have their brown
muslins bought six weeks ago can compete with us
