DO NOT BE IMPATIENT.
In our great eagerness to bring
about settled conditions in the In-
dian Territory we should not for-
get that the Indian is yet a factor
in naming the conditions of the
change and will yet have some-
thing to say as to the speed with
which the contemplative changes
snail De brought about. In the
resolutions that are being passed
throughout the country prepara-
tory and in anticipation of the big
convention at South McAlister
on the 22nd the real Indian and
his rights are in a large measure
being ignored. The burden of
most of such deliverances 6eetn to
be the destruction of tribal reven
ues Jelt iroin the wreck of their
courts. Now the Indian must first
get his rights before we can ex-
pect to have a better government.
The lnds must be allotted to the
individual Indian before the white
man can hope to get any of it by
purchase. Cherokee lands could
not now be purchased at one
thousand dollars per acre. The
town sites ought to be settled but
the Indians must have something
to say as to how they are settled.
It is certainly a short sighted pro-
cecdure to undertake to have con-
gress ignore the tribe and listen
to the kind of resolutions that are
being passed all over the country.
The tribal revenues which the
government has pledged itself to
collect and place to the credit of
the Indian tribes are the property
of these Indians and we have no
right to afk congress to interfere
at this time. They will all be
abolished in due time anyway.
While in the Cherokee ' nation
there are a few Cherokee citizens
who want to wipe out the revenues
of the tribe most of the Indians
don't feel that way and they are
in a position to block legislation
and prevent the very thing most
of us want to bring about. Let us
stand by the Indians and help
them to get their affairs in better
shape. and not get impatient and
rush on in advance and do some
thing that will retard instead of
accelerate the thing wanted. The
government in this matter is un-
questionably on the side of the In
dian against those who want to
abolish all tribal rights and rush
pell mell into unprepared state-
While the South McAlister con-
vention is in sassion next week
will be a good time to insist on a
three cent fare on all railroad lines
through the Indian Territory. i

Maklnir Up" with Children.
The secret of "geting along" with
children i3 to apply to them the ordi
nary rules of social life. Th nnront
who romps with his children and in a
lew minutes whips one of them for
not addressing him as "sir" need not
be surprised if his children avoid his
society. One of the commonest laws
of social decency is to not quote Latin
to a pcison who is known never to
Lave studied the classics. Precisely
the same discourtesy is committed if
we use words of many syllable in con-
Tcrsiujf cnnaren; Dut we commit
a still greater discourtesy ia either
case by assuming with an ir of
patronage that the unclassical adult
or the child has no idea in common
with our superior selves. The child of
five and the man or woman of 50 are
surprisingly alike in their interests
and they may converse with mutual
aavamage upon an endless variety of
suDjecis. Jjr. A. L. .Benedict in Wom-
