naoeseary, and to avoid late drives.
"While the result may be smaller

Jareible is the adage when applied
valaabie animals, which it has
token time and means to produce,
and which are reproductive to an
extent which in a few years have
raised hundreds of persons from
pereriy to comfort, and many to

apply with greater force to the mas'
f oar families, which are able to

whether individuals or associa

a subject of no little mometn, and
forwhich there is little or no cx

Tite Indian Appropriation Bill,
as reported, the 5th inst., by the
sub-committee to the Committee on
Appropriations of the House of
Representatives, contains some im
portant provisions.' as we gather
from the Washington Pout. It ap
propriates S-5,379,373, against 85,
35S,655 appropriated last year. The
LcstimatcsQrero for S8,46C,SO0, an
increase over last year of about
$400,000, for schools and education
of Indians is recommended. The
bill prohibits the War Department
from bringing liquor into Indian
reservations under any circum
stances, and appropriates $5000 for
the detection and prosecution of
persons introducing liquor. It also
provides for a census of tho In
dians. The provision in regard to
liquor is important, and is in vir
tual accordance with the treaty of
1SGG, between tho United States
and the Cherokee Xation, but
whiclufor some unknown cause,
has remained inoperative. If pro
hibition, under severe forfeitures
and penalties, is a proper thing for
the red man, it is not less so for
the white and the black. It is un
reasonable to expect to make pro
hibition effective when whites and
blacks can lawfully obtain liquor
in the Indian equntry at military
posts. The discrimination defeats
the phjecj qf the law itself, and is
both unjust and unwise. Let the
law place them all on the same
footing. Then prohibition may
accomplish its purpose, and pre
vent drunkenness and ijs attend
ant crimes, difficulties and sorrows
but not before,
The Creek lsdiaa Troubles.
An Indian Territory special says:
"Hon. J. M. Ferryman, to whom
the position pf Principal Chief of
the Creek Nation was awarded by
Secretary Teller, has taken posses
sion of the office, and is doing all
in his power to prevent any further
trouble. The friends of Espaicchc
are awaiting hjs arrival before mak
ing any movement. Espaicchc is
in Washington as a delegate from
the Creek nation, but is expected
home within a few days. The ad
herents of Espaiuchc and Chicote
have a majority in both tranches
of the Creek legislature.-
Tke Creek Calefialacy.
The following extract gives the
reasons why Secretary Teller ar
rived at the conclusion to recognize
Mr. Ferryman as Principal Chief of
the Creek Nation. It is from his
letter to tho Commissioner of In
dian Affairs :
I am in reccjpt of yours of the 6th
instant in relation to the contested
electipn for the position of Principal
Chief of the Muscogee Nation of
Indians, and all the papers submit
ted by the parties in Interest, and
the reports of Inspector Benedict
and Special Agent Townsend rela
tive to the same.
After a careful consideration of
thp facts and argument presented
by attorneys representing Perry
nian and Ispahecnc, and also of the
statements of members or citizens
of the .nation, int luding that of
Cheeqte, the retiring Chief, I have
reached the conclusion that Perry
man should be recognized as the
Principal Chief of the Muscogee
I have reached this conclusion
for the following reasons;
1. That on the day when factions
or parties agreed to vote for Princi
pal Chief, Perryman received a
plurality of the votes cast. In. this
connection I am convinced that the
words "majority" and "plurality"
are synonymous ones as understood
and used by the Muscogc pcop'-.
In each case the meaning is, some
thing equivalent to "ahead" or
"to come out ahead." If the day
upon which the election for Princi-
fial Chief was held was not the
egally established day for the pur
Eose, it was at least accepted as such
y nearly the whole voting popula
tion of the Nation: and it would -e
transcending propriety for this De
rartment to interpose objection on
the ground that the votes were not
polled on the proper day.
2. Perryman was recognized by
the Council and was sworn in by
the Chief Justice of the Nation.
This Council was composed of ad
herents of different parties, and I
believe the majority of the mem
bers were opposed to Ferryman.
Itis true that Ispahcchc was recog
nized by a subsequent council
which, under the Muscogee law had
nothing to do with the counting of
the votes of that eluction and
sworn in. lliis was witnout autno
ity, plainly, and cannot operate to
nullify the expression of the will
of the" people ot the Nation on the
first Jlonday of September, the
authoritative recognition of Perry
man as Principal Chief, and tho due
administration of the oath of office
to him as such.
There is much in the case that
might be discussed, but hardly to
advantage, inasmuch as I consider
that the two points above referred
to arc conclusive in the matter,
You are directed to recognize
Perryman as Principal Chief of the
Muscogee or Creek Nation, and to
instruct the U.S.Agtnt to announce
this fact, and in all official acts to
give due effect to the viess heroin

The Cherokee and Creek delegai
tions have presented their protest
against the provisions of certain
bills introduced into Congress,
granting the right of way to the
railroad companies therein named,
to oonstruct and operate their roads
through the Indian Territory. From
this protest we extract as follows :
1st. In the second section the
corporation practically receives by
its terms a strip of land five hundred
feet wide, at and for some distance
from stations, and an aditional two
hundred feet elsewhere lor cuts and
fills. This is taken out of the domain
our people can use or occupy.
Will anyone pretend that the $50
per mile is fair remuneration for
such a property or such a franchise.
No parallel case was presented in
the railroad chartered through the
Choctaw Nation last year. The
treatv with the Choctaws permit
ted such Congressional legislation,
while ours does not, but even in that
case the company were required to
pay the Chotaw Nation more in
each year for the franchise granted
than these bills propose to pay us
altogether. We protest against
such confiscation of our property.
We have not been consulted as
to what it is worth. You sure
lv would not take our property for
the use of the Government for less
than its value, and why should you
give it to a private corporation for
2nd. Section seven of each bill
authorizes the cmnloyees of each
commpany to sottl? on the right of
way. This is a doparture from all
that is known in any State or grants
of right of way. "it grants our
property- for individual benefit.
It would, it enacted, create a
villare. town or stnntr of settle
ments along the railroad, creating
individual rights and interests, and
saddling them and their improve
ments on our realty, it wouiu
create a community'under no gov
ernment or law. It would introduce
all manners of traffic, with liquor
and other abuses, into the Indian
country. It would render it totally
impossible to preserve law and
It is a scheme expressly devised
to break up and destroy the country
of the five nations. It is a scheme
full of mischief and confusion to us
and vou, and would, if consummat
ed, dcstrojr the government policy
in the Indfan Territory. We grant
ed right of wav to two railroads that
have been built, but in both cases
the employees are restricted to an
occupancv necessary' to run this
roab, and the company is under
bond for their good behavior while
iq, and their removal when dis
charged. It works no hardship to
theu. It would cripple and destroy
the a ction of our govemmont thus
greatly violatins our treaties. It
would" strip us of considerable rev
enue we now enjoy. It would
introduce into our country all the
riffraff tliot for roars havo been
seeking to invade'it in violation of
law and treatv.
"H. B.,1' writing from Washing
ion to the Cherokee Advocate, under
date of Feb. 17th, says :
