JUDGE GILL FILES SPECIAL OPIN-
ION IN CASE.
I Holds That Merchants Arc Exempt
I After Final Payment Is Made on
Lot on Which Business Is
Judgo Joseph A. Gill of the Northern
district has filed his pectul opinion In
thu tribal tax case in which he do-
clnros thnt the morchnnt would ho ex-
empt from payment of tho tax It ho
would set up tin his dofonse the fact
that he had mndo dual pnymcnt on
his hit. whether tho patent had been
IsHueil or not. The opinion stntes that
his concurrence In tho opinion of
Judge Townsend and Judge Raymond
wns due to the failure of the South
McAlester merchants to mnko such a
Ills opinion attacks the whole th-v
ory set ftirfii by Judges Townsond nnd
Raymond In their opinion. He says
that townsltes arc as much outside the
"Indian country" as the Cherokee out-
let lie showed that tho old 1839
treaty covered that territory as well
nnd that there wns no special repeal
of the license feature when tho out
let wns sold to the United States nnd
afterward o homesteaders. The se-
gregated townsltcs over whhh an alien
government has been established nnd
which have been sold to the nnn-cltl-en
temporarily he even being In-
duced to come and bid on the same
occupy the peculiar position of being
outside the Jurisdiction of tho nntlon.
The only difference between Judge
Gill's opinion and that of Judge Clay-
ton in tho nisi prius court Is that
Judge (lill holds that final payment on
his town lots must be made by tbo
merchant while Judge Clayton held
that tho treaty provided for the over-
labting relinquishment of tlio nation's
Interest in tho townsltc even should
default of payment bo made In that
latter Instance the property reverting
not to tho nntlon but to the town-
site commission for snle again.
