TOWNSEND RLNDERS DECISION

Are Void in Pickens County.
In the case of Joe F. Roblson vs.
Jake Mastenson et nl. Judge Town-
iiend rendered nn ImiMirtnut decision
in that case Joe F. Roblson who hnd
been appointed Kunrdlau of two Indian
children brought suit against .1. ID.
Arnold and his tenant to annul and

the Indians' allotments. 'Hie lease
ro Arnold had been executed by n
gttardl-in appointed by Walter Colbert
Judge f tho probate court of Pickens
rotinty and the lca.to purported to
have lien approved by that court.
The ordir npiMimtlng tho guardian its
well as the order approving the lense
appeared to be regular and contain-
ed recitals showing thnt they wore
made In the probate court of Pickens
county Chickasaw Nation but Mr.
Rubicon attacked the order appoint

that while they purport to hnvo boon

had no power to act as probnte Judge.

citals thawing that they were mnde
within the Jurisdiction of the probnte
court of Plekein county 11 wns con
tended by the attorneys if Arnold
thnt they could no be collaterally at
tacked especially since they show
that the probate court acted within n
jurisdiction. Judge Townsend decid-
ed against thlA contention nnd held
that when a judgment of nn Indian
court becomes subject to Inquiry Ir
n cn?e pending in tho United States
court the Jursdlctlon of tho Indian
court could be Inquired into. And i
It bo found that It acted without juris
diction tho judgment would bo held

bert nt Tishomingo nnd n great many
lensej ppproved by him nt Tishomingo
whllo he wns probate Judge or Pick-
ens county. Under this decision ill
these orderH are absolutely void.
In his decision on tho subject Judge
"Tho question submitted to me is
upon tho exceptions to tho Blaster's
report. Tho master reported if I un-
derstand tho matte- correctly Hint tho
judgment of th? probato court of Pick-
ens county could not bo attacked col-
latcrly. Tho plaintiff excepts to the
master's report. It occurs to mo that
this question must bo determined upon
tho basis of what thatiorco and effect
Is to be given to tho Judgment of the
Indian courts when they urc attacked
In this jurisdiction."
After quoting at somo length from
Mlnck on judgments and Justice Urnd-
ley tho court further says:
"The circuit court of appeals have
decided that proceedings nnd Judg-
ments of the courts of the Cheroko?
nnd Creek nations nro upon tho same

that all the acts of tho said county

pointment of tho said gunrdlnn aside
from the allegations as mado above
were nnd are absolutely void. The

Chief Feature of the Meeting.
The Lincoln Republican club hold
aii interesting and enthttslnstlo meet

matters up for discussion before tho

oratory dispensed for the edification
of the Fathering. Ical speakers had

was carefully worded and couched In
terms that woultl ordinarily glvo or

that the action ot tho club In making

agreed that in the oven' ot a vacancy
the club should be culled together for
the purpose of making nn endorsement
and a motion to this effect carried al-
most unanimously. What seemed to
be a light over the resolution was
thus avoided. Robnett took tho Iloor
and stated that the reason he wnnted
the endorsement wns that other cti-dors--
nents were being tiled for the

club ho said was satisfactory to him.
It was reported In tho papers yes-
terday that Marshal Colbert had re-
signed. This was refuted by hU
friends last night and It was further
stated that Colbert had tho assurance
from the department of Justlco that
he would not bo removed pending tho
charges against him.
