ach question, but now, that it is.

the right of the Nation to control

Act of CoBgress which appropriat

versy, bat of all other funds, under
"treaty stipelatioes with the United
States, is clearly correct. This
right has heen too long recognized
hy eTery fegarfcnent of the general
.Eovenuaent, and enjoyed by the
Cherokee Nation, to be doubted. ItK
-kiu. not oejeiinquisncov nor wnen
h&t shall be done,the end of every
other right, and of national exist
ence itself, Trill be soon reached.
The Cherokee Nation in this re
spect has never been, jn a state of
minority, and it is too late to enter
upon it. There is hat little within
their experience or observation
that won,'.d persuade the Chcrokees
to oonsent to the application of
their funds by appropriation of
Congress, or their disbursement by
the Indian Agents. Not because
they might distrust the wisdom of
the one, or the integrity of the
other, although they do occasion
ally &I1 by the wayside but be
cavee it would be neither just nor
iixpedient. There is nothing in
that kind of guardianship that is
not humiliating and subversive of
independence, and of self-respect
and self-reliance. And the Chero
kee will swtain their authorities
to the fullest extentin. resisting any
attempt ot the kind, from what
ever soerce it may come.
So far as the small fund is con
cerned, which has causod the rais
iag of this issue, there is no room
for doubting that the equity of the
cae is with the native Cherokees,
whatever difference of opinion may
xist, even among themselves, as
ia the points of law or expediency
wvolved. The Editor, who speaks
sir for himself in the premises,
is free to say that he favored the
distribution of the mite to all citi
zens of the Nation as a matter of
legal implication, but not because
the complainants, red, white or
black, were deprived of equitable
rights by the course pursued. This
is altogether the case with the
whites and blacks, to a consider
able extent with the Shawnees, but
very much less with the Delawares.
And this because the Delawares
contributed to the funds of the Na
tion largely for the rights acquired
hy them as citizens, the Shawnees
much less, and the whites and
But the amount of money in
volved is the least consideration
growing out of this case. Others
eren the virtue ofgobd faith which
they rely upon and practice, is not
worthy the slightest consideration,
when not subservient to the grasp
ing spirit of the so-called,, civiliza
tion which it reflects. A' stronger
manifestation of barbarism than is
found in lhisinvitation,utterly dis
regarding both legal and moral ob
ligations voluntarily assumed, will
be difficult to find.

conclusions incorporated in Senate
Executive Document No.SB.present
By the constitution and laws of
the Cherokee Nation, and in accor
dance with her treaties, the lands
and funds of the Cherokee Nation
are common or public property,
the disposition of which is made
by her legislature in accordance
with her constitution.
No individual right in them
inures until by Jaw or treaty it is
so determined; and por capita, pay
ments of the funds arc not required
or contemplated by the treaties
or constitution. Individual citizens
of the Cherokee Nation have an
indefeasible right to theiritnprove
ments, but cannot alienate the soil.
The improvement is the individ
ual home, requiring occupancy or
use.but descends to children or'mav
be sold. Her funds are not and
lave not been the gift of the United
States, or of any gratuity to the
Cherokees, but have been created
from time to time by the sale of
surplus lands, under the authority
and direction of treaty, the sales
of such property being made by
the legal owners, the constituted
authorities of tho Cherokee Nation,
and a disposition of the proceeds
made by -them under law or the
sanction of treaty. The relation or
the United States to these funds
is merclv that of a trustee of a
clearly defined trust, the interest
being payable annually on the
order of the Cherokee Nation.
Bv the 10th and 11th articles of
the treaty of 1SS5 (Vol. 7, pp. 4S2
3,) and the 23d article of the
treaty of 1SG6 I VoJ. 14, pp. S05),
these funds arc placed completely
under the control of the national
authorities, are payable on their
order, and the Nation may,on giv-r
ing two years' notice, withdraw
their funds from the custody of the
United States, and invest them in
any more protitable manner.
The interest accruing from the
funds has been expended for more
than half a century" in maintaining-H3 .vision of lands they would
or the common property, and of adopted citizens paid for none of
cuuisv; uic uesirucuun ui me .na
tion. Another mistake has led to mis
apprehension. Soma persons have
supposed the CherokcoNntion to be
la tribe of Indians under the manage
ment oi mc mnian xureau lis
fundsjcontrolled by it. Such is not
the fact, as examination will show.
The Cherokee Nation, as organized
under law and treaty, on its present
lands in the west, is a political
community with well determined
powers, flic jurisdiction of all
matters iouhcing the persons and
property of her own people remain
with her. (See 5th article of Treaty
of 1835, and 13th article of treaty
of 1SGG.) Her courts have exclusive
jurisdiction ofall oases except crim
inal cases between Cherokees and
citizens of the United States. This
has been defined from time to time
by law and treaty, and affirmed by
decisions of the Supreme Court-
In the case of Mnckcy vs fxeS
Howard, 100), it is dctormir.wd that
the Cherokee 2aUon is a kind of
territorial government, the only
limitation to whose powers are the
express limitations made by trea
ties. That government has existed
for more than half a century ; has
grown and prospered, and is today
the most successful form of gov
ernment of the kind ; and the ef
forts of which we complain are not
justified by her continued prosper
ity and usefulness.
"The subject niattor of Executive
Document No. SO is the distribu
tion of the 5300,000 paid for lands
under the Act of Congress of March
3d, 1SS3. Under that Act of Con
gress it was "to be expended as the
acts of the Cherokee legislature di
rected. It was so expended, and
leaves no ground for Congress to
interfere. That amount was offer
ed by the Act of Congress to the
Cherokee Nation for a patent to
certain lands of which tho Nation
was the owner. If any restriction
had been placed on her powers the
Nation wou'd not have conveyed
the property. Under its terms pat
ents were made, the money paid,
and the law executed.
The subject of complaint is that
a per capita payment was made of
the money to Cherokees by blood,
and that certain citizens by adop
tion were not permitted to'partici
patc. The payment, it will he ob
served, was made according to law.
Let us see if any equities were vi
olated. Under provisions of treaty
the Delawares were adopted. They
paid for 160 acres per head, and
they paid a proportionate share of
the funds as they were at that time,
and the price of the neutral lands.
Doos any one pretend that if there
this ; we have given them of onr
patrimony about enoucb." And
when the Cherokee Nation legis
lated that this particular pa3mcnt
should only be made to Cherokees
by blood, had these adopted Cher
okees any special grievance? -J
Many Cherokee citizens prefer
red, and hold to the opinion, that
the latter payment should have
have been mado without any dis
crimination against adopted citi
zens. "While it is equally clear that the
legislature could, properly exocute
the power it did, and that tho law
is obligatory on all good citizens,
and also clear that any money, if
appropriated for these parties,
would have been a gratuity for
which such claimants have never
paid n consideration, it is probable
that such distinctions may not be
made in tho future. That rests with
the law-making power of the coun-
try.anu aJl these people are voters.
Whatever our own viow s may be
on the expediency of such meas
ures, we, on behalf of the Nation,
submit that the action was accord
ing to Constitution, law and treaty,
and affords neither legal nor equit
able grounds for intorposition.

are manifest, and they are such as

whether native or adopted. "We
see already adventurers, and well
known implacable enemies to the
preservation and perpetuation of
the rights of the Nation, and ot
the Indian Territory, takingadvau
tage of the pretext afforded them
to foment trouble, and to widen a
breach between the native and
.adopted elements which compose
the population of the Nation. "Di
vide and conquer" is the policy of
scheming fellows, as well as of cun
ning statecraft or ambitious gener
alship, and it is the duty of all
classes, by the exercise of justice.
the execution of law, and a spirit
of kindness and patriotism,to avoid
every issue that may lead to such
results. We want no controversy
that will give any excuse for jeal
ousy and distrust between these
two elements. The uniting of ei
ther of them in a common cause
will necessarily lead to the uniting
of the others for self-protection.
The Chieftaix is for harmony,
confidence, tlie recognition of the
rights ofall citizens, and the main
tenance of tlie government of the
hT government, her educational
and charitable institutions, her
courts judicial expenses and for
other public purposes.
Her citizens are not taxed,excep' l'
for special privileges, such. a li
censes to trade, dispose oftjubi ,'t
timber, or to act professionally. '"
All her lawful citizens aro voters
and have a voice in her govern
ment, and none of them havo been
deprived of a peaceful and free
voice in determining her public
affairs. The rights of 'he minority
arc as mucn respected as arc tlie
rights of minorities in any State.
Her educational and charitable
institutions are regulated by law.
and offer equal privileges to all, as
nearly as practicable.
the Cherokee legislature holds
and has alwavs exercised the right
to dispose of public moneys.
For instance, it gave an annual
pension to Sequoyah, tho inventor
of tlie Cherokee alphaht, paid from
them. From time to time she has
made provision for the blind, the
lame, the insane, and indigent
poor. One pnyment of 8200,000
was made on account of the de
struction of crops by the grasshoi-
ers. A payment of several thou-
sand dollars was made by law for
the rcleif of certain destitute Cher
okee emigrants from North Car
olina, who had not then become
lawful citizens, nor had any lawful
citizens the right to complain of
this disposition of public money.
Any citizen of the Nation can
sue the Nation, through the person
of the chief, for aiy right withheld
or damage done, and to meet such
claim- and responsibilities, her
funds have been used. Every law
ful citizen, whether by birth or
adoption, has his lawful remedy,
under tlie constitution of his own
country, and where he has really
any lawful claim, there is not the
slightest difficulty in exercising it.
Thosc of hci citizens who appeal
to the powers of the United stales
j to interfere with the exercise other
constitutional powers, n may well
be believed have no lrgal case in
tho courts, and seek to hide the
defects of their claim under an ar
bitrary exercise of authority, and
by misrepresentation inviting the
Tjnited States to violate her treaties
with the Nation. In the history of

was done according to treat)', and
under its clearly defined provis
ions. Thus under the treaty of 1835
already referred to, the lands be
longing to the then Cherokee Na
tion, residing at that time east of
the Mississippi river, were sold for
five millions of dollars, of which,
except certain specified amount,
tcingasmall portion of it reserved
for public purposes, the bulk was
declared to be personal right and
benefit. This was agreed to by tlie
Cherokee Nation, the owners, by
treaty with the United States, A
portion of it was expended to pay
for improvements, which were the
only individual rights existing in
tho land. Part for ferries, spolia
tions. &c. These amounts itivas
distinctly agreed in that treaty, and
the treaty of 1S4G (Vo;. 9, page 871
statutes), should constitute indi
vidual benefits, and be paid not to
the national authorities, but to in
dividuals. By these treaties, as
stated, the remaining property was
distinctly recognized as public or
common property, subject to tne
ho entitled to more than the 160
aores per head they specifically
bought and paid for ? If there was
loss than that number of acres at
tlift time of such a possible distri-
jn. they would be entitled to

proceeds of neutral lands, but they

tributive share of which they ask.
From these they incidentally re

equities in any of it. Thev get the
Alii benefit of all they paid for,and
more. Still further, it there is to
be a claim that the community of
interests is perfect, there is a fund
of nearly a million of dollars, the
interest on which is paid to the
Delawares. Although they are an
integral patt of tlie Cherokee Na
tion, the Cherokee authorities have
set up no claim to that. In a tech
nical way they might have claimed
its disposition. They have noither
