Judge for the purpose of reviewing
and Anally rtaaalng upon the court
cltlienshtp caa in the Choctaw and
Chickasaw natloni. So much contro-
reray baa arisen over thfa question
that the Joint committee of the house
and senate decided at the last mo-
ment to constitute a separate court
which will have original jurisdiction
In these cases and whose decision
will be final. The creation of this
court however does not mean that
all of the court judgment cases will
be reviewed or reopened. On the
contrary In order to secure the re
opening of any of the case it must be
clearly shown first that proper
notice was not served upon the rep
resentatives or attorneys of the Choc
taw and Chickasaw nations; secondly
that the hearing of the cases was ir
regular; and thirdly that perjured
evidence was submitted or that
other fraud entered into the trial of
the case. Any of these grounds will
be sufficient to secure a reopening of
any of the court judgment cases.
The court will be coniposod of three
judges who will bo appolntod from
