Senator Itiirton Unduly Interested In
Speclnl to tlio Ardinorolto
Washington April 27 A mild
sensation occurred tho other day!
amoug officials in Washington
when it becamo known that
Mr. David Mulvans the Ropub-
lican National Committcenmn
from Kansas hud secured a con-
tract with tho Chickasaw Indians
to represent them at the national
capital in business boforo con-
gros and tho departments.
The mere fact of tho employ ment
of an attorney did not at-
tract particular attention al-
though representation has been
refused every tribe in Indian
Territory by tho secretary of
tho Intorior. Tho surprising
feature was that a contract had
been made with a closo friend of
Mr J. II. Burton tho junior
and Republican United States
senator from Kansas.
Two years ago Mr. .1 . R. Bur-
ton then a senatorial aspirant
for tho seat occupied by Lucicn
Baker secured a contract with
he Chickasaw Indians to repre
sent them at tho national capital.
Tho salary attached was j000
per annum. When this contract
camo on to Washington Special
tgcnt Wright of lndiun Terri
tory was called upon for recom
mendation as to the necessity of
employing additional counsel.
Ho recommonded against such
action by tlio department. His
recommendation was concurred
in by commissioner or Indian
affairs Jones. Secretary Hitch-
cock also adversely recommend
ed it so that it went to the pros
ident with an unbroken lino of
adverse endorsements by the
olllcials of tho department. Ac
cordingly the president vetoed
Mr. J. It. Burton charged that
tho action of tho department wis
duo to tho iulluenco of Senator
Lucicn Baker though this was
a mistake as Secretary Hitch
cock had repeatedly rejected
similar contracts made by other
tribes iu the territory with at-
torneys. Shortly utter Mr. Burton took
his seat in the sonatoho request-
ed that he be placed upon the
committee on Indian affairs.
Rumor had already had it that
tho senator had many friends
who wero interested in Indian
business whom ho was anxious
to serve. Tho request was not
acted upon owing to the failure
of tho senate to reorganize and
reappoint the committees.
Mr. David Mulvane tho Re-
publican National Committeeman
of Kansas has been one of tho
steadfast friends of Mr Burton.
in recent years. He has assist
ed him politicallyand tinanclally.
When it was announced tho
other day that Mulvano had se-
cured tho contract with tho
Chickasaw Indians it was looked
upon as in lino with tho rumors
which have been curront in
Washington und in Kansas for
more than a year.
It is stated that tho Kansas
delegation acting upon tho re-
quest of Senator Burton will
endeavor to liavo tho contract
approved by Secretary Hitch-
cock. It is already a foregone
conclusion that this cauuot be
accomplished Tho secretary
has already declared himself
upon this point. Ho believes in
protecting tho rights of tho In-
dians at all times and not iu tho
useless squandering of their
funds und substanco in tho pay-
ment of attomoy fees especially
when tho department is capable
of doing this work without tho
asslstauco of attorneys. Should
ho reject tho treaty however a
fight will bo made to take the
matter out of tho hands of tho
Lnst wmtor cougrcss passed
an act making tho members of
the Fivo Civilized Tribes lu In-
diau Territory citinens of tho
United States. Individually thoy
may make such contracts as thoy
sco lit. Their council action
howovpr is entirely differout.
That is a portion of tribal form
of government aud subject to
tho approval of tho secretary
If Secretary Hitchcock rojocts
tho Mulvane Chickasaw contract
an effort will then bo mado to
have tho citizens of tho .Terri-
tory in mass conventions ap-
prove another contract with Mr.
Mulvane individually tho mem-
bers of tho tribes being citizeus
of tlio United States and having
authority to pursuo that course.
Then an important question will
irise as to tho construction of
tho citizenship act which may
ralso some now and Interesting
questions. Among theso will
bo tho question of tho logality
of tho mombors upon tho tribal
rolls. Tho qucstiou of tho citi
zenship of tho freodmeu of tho
various nations will also bo con-
sidered which may show tho
foot that a largo number of ne-
groes who aro now on tho tribal
rolls as citizens are neither mem-
bers of the tribes or citizens of
tho United States.
It is stated that Senator Bur-
ton is endeavoring to tako cure
of a number of his friends in
Kansas by securing their em
ployment by tho Indian nations
in tho Territory as attorneys.
