Sr. Louif, Mo., July 21. J. Milton
Turner, ex-United States Minister to Li
beria ami a man of note among llio col
ored people, returned from Indian Terri
tory yesterday, where ho went by invita
tion' lo meet tlio Dawes Senatorial Com
mittee in behalf of Cherokee frccdmen.
ho says the committee metal Viuita and
examined a large number of witnesses ns
to tlio claims of 7,000 frccdmen of the
Chcrokces, who have been debarred from
receiving their share of s?l!00,000 paid tlio
Cherokee Nation by tho Government for
land ceded lo it hy tho Indians.
The money was withheld from the ficed
mcii on the ground that they aro not of
Chcrokco blood. Turner's argument be
fore tho committee was that under the
treaty of 18(i(l the freed men have all the
rights of native-born Chcrokces, and he
says tho committee after making a thor
ough examination of tho whole question
will report to Congress nexl winter, rec
ommending lhat theso frcedmeu shall
bo paid their pro rata of the $:iOO,000,
which amounts to $118,000. Thcsamccon
ditioii of tilings exists in the Choctaw Na
tion and tho samo action will probably be
taken in that case. Turner also succeeded
in getting an allowance of forty acres of
Iami to each Choctaw frccdmaii and all tho
rights of citizens. These negroes will vote
fortho first time at tho election forolliccrs
of tho nation next month.
