This was tho remark of Judgo

quiry about tho removal of John
Jorden, a Cherokee citizen, from
the outlet by order of tho interior
department. Tho question of au
thority for dning so, whether right
or wrong, was disposed of, as to
any controversy about it, by tho
judgo's laconic expression. No ex
planation or argument was neces
sary, in tho judge's mind, to do
tcrmino tho authority for Jordon's
removal, bocauso it would do no
good and that ho must go dospito
opinions to tho contrary.
It is rather a pitiful exhibition
for a follow undor tho gallowa to
protest his innocenco when ho is
doomed to liavo his neck pulled.

Imply no advantages over the
mcro right of tho government to

and contingent only upon its poli
cy or tho willingness of the In
dians to be moved there. This
right rit'cms, according to tho
opinion of tho attorney general,
nnd as enforced by tho interior
department in the case of Jorden,
to bo superior to possession and
jurisdiction acquired by a legal ex
chango of landa and by patent le
gally authorized. Possession and
jurisdictions cannot exist under a
titlo impaired or compromised by
any concession whatever short of
absolute surrender of Much title, or

condition of the lands, as hold by
tho attorney general, Is that of

realizos tho puy for thorn. This is
so in effect bocauso tho uso and occupancy-of

Chorokco nation in tho removal of
ono of its citizens from them, by
reason of a right which cannot bo
considered a right at all when not

can't help ourselves, and must
submit to that which no arc pow

Our authorities, so that an intelli

that time is now. It is criminal
to disgnioo facts or to conceal them
from the people who know little

security when there is actual dan
ger. Tho moro privilege of sel
ling friendly Indians upon our
western lands, undor certain con

between nations of equal power,
would never bo tolerated. With

us, anyone, stubborn as ho may bo
in his belief, oannot afford to
prcacii porfect safety.
As beforo spoken of by Tiik
Chieftain, there aro advantages to
be secured nnd which aro possiblo,

THE CHEROKEE OUTLET.
Tho Cherokee constitution. Art.
1, Sr3, 2, provides that tho lands
of tho Chorokco nation shall re
main common property, tho citi
zens owning tho improvements,
but not having tho right to dispose
of said improvements, much less
tho land, to the'Uitjtofliatcs, to
any state or to indivitlruy citizens
thereof, and no authority has tho
right to sell any part of tho Chcro
keo domain in any manner.
Tho National council, by tho
constitution, is given tho authority
to pass nil laws and regulation!
which shall bo contrary to this
constitution. Tho national coun
cil has no right whatever to ncll
ono foot of tho Cherokee foil.
On tho 30th of July, 1889, last
Tuesday, tho counmnHloneru ap
pointed by the government of Did
miett states, tun at Tauloquau
ttubmil a proposition to lion. Joel
II. Mares, principal chief of tho
CheroJcco nation, for tho cession
by tho Chorokco nation to tho
United Slates of all titlo, claim or
inlorest of every kind or character
in and to the Cncrokoo lands lying
west of tho OGth meridian, upon
the same terms as to payment
as IP provided in tho agreement
mado witli tho Creek Indians, of
date January 10, 1880, and ratifi
ed by congross.
The chiof will bo compelled to
reply that thoro is no authority in
him, nor in the Chorokco national
council to make a cession of this
proporly, and thai it could on
ly bo done by a chango of tho
Chcrokco constitution. Tho
Chorokco constitution, section 10,
Article C, Bays tho national coun
cil may proposo such amendments
to tho constitution as two-thirds of
each branch may doom expedient,
and tho principal chiof shall issuo
a proclamation, directing all civil
officers of tho sovcral districts to
promulgate tho same as exten
sively as possible within thoir ros
peotivo districts at least six months
previous to tho next gonoral elec
tion, nnd if at tho first sossion of
tho national council aftor such
general eloction two-thirds of oaoh
branch shall by yeas or neas ratify
such proposed amendments, thoy
shall bo valid as a part of tho
Thus no action could bo token in
tho way of a salo beforo Novem
ber, 1801. The issue bofore us is
a grave ono. Wo h.ivo good title
lo this property though it is vig
orously contested, but tho govern
ment of tho Unitod Statos. can un
der tho treaty of lSflC.settle friend
ly Indiana on this land and prac
tically deprive us of a largo part
of its valuo by doing so, taking
tho most valuable eastern half.
Tho Cheycnnca and Arapahoes
have set up a claim to this prop
erty. A number of prominent U.
S. congressmen have declared
thoir purpose, in caio tho Choro
kcos refuse to mako this sale, to
sottlo these Indians and othors up
on tho eastern part of this land.
The Indians so located could roadi
ly bo induced to allot. Thus a
modo ia provided undor tho troaty
which leads to white occupancy.
More than that, the principal of
eminent domain has been declared
for purposes of right of way
through this country, under which,
for the general wclfaro, narrow
strips of land have been taken by
tho Unitod Slates, and certain
sums provided to be paid iherefur
to the Chcrokco nation, which was
assumed by congress to bo an
equitable settlement. This prin
ciple has been argued in favor of
taking tho wholo of the Cherokee
outlet for public occupancy, on
tho grounds that tho Cherokecs
were not occupying it, that it was
greatly needed for agricultural pur
poses, and that if the Chorokccs
wcro paid a fair valuo for tho
property, it would bo right for con
gress to exorcise its authority of
eminent domain to open this fund
for homes for United States citi
zens who arc homeless.
Wc truly believe that either un
der tho treaty or by the eminent
domain argument, tho government
will tauo sucn stops as wilt bo
found necessary to convert it to
public uso. Wo ara convinced
tho Chorokco nation should take
steps without dolay for securing to
her people tho values involved in
this pruporty. Thoro aro several
propositions being canvassed.
1st. Do nothing but resist in
every possible way any chango of
the prosont status.
2nd. Sell to the Unitod States
for 91.25 an acre, or by diplomacy
get a little more.
3td. Advcrtihc, get up compe
tition, and sell out to the syndicate
mat bids highest.
Uh" Cause the allotment of tho
lands west of tho DOth meridian
under section 2, Article 1, amend
ment to tho Cherokee constitution,
as provided by Artirle 20, treaty ot
July 111, lhCG, and Iwvo each citi
xon authorized to sell or hold his
own patt ai ho pleased.
The first proposition to do noth
ing is dangerous in the extreme,
because there Is overy probability,
if we do so, we will loose tho great
values involved, or a large part of
The second proposition to sell
to tho Unitod States government
would produco us only $1.25 an
acre, when this land ought lo not
tho Chcrokco people threo dollars
an. aero on an average.
The government ot tho United
Statos practically givea away tho
public domain to actual bottlers,
and wc cannot expect that the
United States will give tho markot
valuo for this property, wince it
would be a clear loss to tho treas
ury of tho United States, no ade
quate return appearing. Any con
gressman who would vote eighteen
million of dollars to tho Cherokoe
nation would be accused by his
constituency and oppononta at
homo of having been in an Indian
steal, becauso tho pooplo generally
heliovo this land belongs to tho
government of tho Unitod Statos,
and such a congressman would bo
accused of getting "a part of the
boodlo." Wo could not expect
any congressmen to risk thoir po
litical lives simply fur socunnir
jusuco loiuu unoroiico nation.
i ho third plan of soiling to a
syndicate is impracticable, imdim
practioublo because the govern
mtut would nut allow it. It is
injudicious, bocauso if it could bo
done, tho syndicate that would
como to our legislature would,
by tho lavish use of money, con
trol that body.
If thero was several bidders
thoy would pool, of course, and
divide tho plunder they would se
en ro from tho Chorokco nation
Tho fourth proposition to cauao
tho allotment of this property
among tho Chorokoo peoplo is
practicable nnd just, and would
socuro to tho Chorokoo pooplo tho
largest possiblo rolurna out of thia
property. It la practicable bo
causo no congressman would hesi
tate to allow the Cherokeos to di
vide among themselves tho lands
U) which they have titles, and
whoto value In justice thd Chcro-
kco people should enjoy, when
such an allotment would lead to
tho utilization of this land and its
attachment to tho territory or
tate which tho politicians of tho
Unitod States anxiously desire to
bo established in tho western part
of tho Indian Territory. By this
plan all that tho government de
sires could be accomplished, to-
wit: Placing that land under ter
ritorial government and its ulti
mate occupancy by whito mon,
who could buy of the Cherokee
owners under this arrangement.
This plan is practicable booauso it
could bo dono under our constitu
tion, while tho other arrangement
would tako two roars and a half.
Ity allotment, tho
' if thoy chooai
ooso to soli, could
somewhoro near tho valuo of
vlo properly bocauso thero would
bo hunurods and thousands of bid
ders; men dciring lo sottlo in
that country, and land buyers, do
siring to speculate.
The rush of peoplo into this
country in case it should pass un
der a territorial government would
swoll the prico to an artificial val
uo. Cherokeos might then havo
tho good forluno lo havo lands up
on which town sites could bo con
veniently located and which would
prove great fortunes to those lucky
enough to hold such allotments.
Tho only objection that could be
urged to this would bo that tho
brighter and moro business liko
citizens of tho Chorokoo nation
would bo In a position to speculate
at the oxpenso of thejr loss intelli
gent noighbors, and advanco their
individual fortuuos. This would
bo truly th- caso becauso the ordi
nary citizen would havo in his
hand3 for every family of five,
about 1250 acres, which ho would
probably sell at threo dollars an
acre, while tho men who bought,
by judicious management, would
probably got four or fivo dollars
an acre. Thia objection, however,
of tho moro intelligent men mak
ing money by buying of tho less
intelligent men is an obiection of a
general characlor that would arguo
that no ordinary man should ho
allowed to havo proporty for fear
some smarter individual would get
a part of it. Tho objection is not
sound, whilo it might appear so.
For thofco reasons and many
others which appear to a thought
ful man, it seems to us that it
would bo wise on tho part of tho
Cherokee nation to secure the val
ues involved in this property for
the Cherokee people in tho "only
manner which is provided by tho
constitution of tho Chorokco na
tion, and tho troaty of 1800. (Sec
Section 2, Article 1, amendments
to Chcrokco constitution, and A
ticlo 20, treaty July 19th, 1800.)
