Tho part of tho chiefs messago
that is most pleasing to the moss
es is tho part in which ho calls at
tention to tho fact that thero is
something over four million dol
lars found duo tho nation from the
Maj. Kidd, Cnpt. McKcnuon
and Slenogrnpher Jacoway, of tho
Dawes commission, wero north
bound passengers last Monday, en
routo for Washington. Ex-Senator
Dawes is already nt tho national
capital. Tho purpose in going to
Washington nt this time is to dis
cuss affairs of this country in de
tail with tho administration nnd
,hnvo a report propared by tho as
sembling of congress thrco weeks
There must bo nt least hnlf n
dozen gangs as desperate as the
Cooks oporaling in this territory.
The number of murders and hold
ups reported every week is simply
alarming, yet there aro people
still contending that t-uch reports
aro very much overdrawn. In the
minds of some people it is a crime
to report a train robbery or a mur
der. Tho kind of national prido
nnd patriotism thnt refuses to ex
poso crime in this or any other
country is very dangerous indeed.
Last Saturday at South McAl
cster Senators Jones and Berry, of
Arkansas, Gov. Ren fro and Hon.
Henry E. Asp, of Oklahoma, and
others, met with the Dawes com
mission and addrescd the people
on the bubject of tho probable
action of congress this winter in
reference to this country. Senator
Joncd went over to Tahlequah and
made a speech to the Cherokee
council on invitation from Chief
Harris, tho gist of which will be
found in our Tahlequah letter,
In renewing for The Chieftain
Judge John A. Foreman writes:
Hurrah for Sam Mayes and tho
passage of a law providing for the
survey of our land, regulating the
settlement thereon, limiting citi
zens to a certain number of acres,
doing away with tho one-fourth
mile outside, and kicking every
actual Cherokee by blood or adop
tion who is baso enough to call for,
or want a change in our govern
ment other than purifying it our
eelves and upholding it with our
own hands, and singing its praises
to the world.
The chiefs message, printed in
this issue, like many of its prede
cessors, is a well written, timely
and sensiblo document. The
"annual message" of a chief of the
nation is only envolved after much
thought and as in tho present case
Ib generally of some literary merit.
The first and most important topic
touched upon by Chief Harris is
with reference to our relations to
tho general government and the
propositions of tho Dawes com
mission. Thnt our interests may
be thoroughly guarded the chief
recommenus mat council Jose no
time in providing a delegation to
WHERE THB TROUBLE LIBS.
The fact cannot bo denied that
tho land question is tho greatest
ono confronting the Cherokee peo
ple at this time. Wo aro supposed
to hold.our lands in common, and
that would imply equal benefits to
all concerned, and whenever any
part of our people occupy or use
moro or less, as tho caso may be,
the land is not held in common.
The original intention was all
right with regard to common prop
erty while land was plentiful and
wo were not interrupted by intru
ders, but now conditions have
changed and justice demands that
thero be some restriction. A few
people are in possession of all the
most valuable lands and locations,
and there must necessarily bo a
bow deal some timo. There is not
a shadow of right or justice to
those who are without homes to
allow (he country to remain as it
Js. If, tho land is to "remain com
mon proporty" the common
properly of nil tho chitons some
will have to disgorge, and that is
xaetly where tho trouble cpmes
in. Every man wants to keep all
be has of lis public domain and
if ha has wore than his share he

INOB OF COUNCIL.
Polltlos Crop out- When Offloea
are Mentioned A Hanging Law
for Blaokwell'a Benoflt.
Tahltqaah, I. T., NaT. It.
Tho first week of council has
come and gono nnd n rovlow of it
does not show a vory prolific ono
for legislation. But then, this is
no moro or less than was expected.
Thero are somo plums to fall, and
you soo the members will bo kopt
qulto busy "fixing" everything so
that thoy will fall in tho right
man's apron. And besides, it
would not do to rush in important
bills bofnro tho appointments are
mado, for if they wero they would
likely servo as collateral for tho
lawmakers to uso among them
selves in "trading" on who shall
fill tho several positions. With
this viow of tho case brforo us, we
can but wait nnd hope for tho
speedy appointment of n delega
tion, a supremo judge, a member
of tho hoard of education and sup
erintendents of tho high echools.
Tho Nationals will, it la said,
hold a caucus tonight or tomorrow
night, nnd whnt they sny will
settle the matter of who shall have
tho coveted places. The Nation
als of this council aro like tho Re
publican, of tho coming congress
will bo; thoy are "Btrictly in it,"
with a voting majority of both
houses, and will give tho chief a
"tip" as to whose nnmes they want
to confirm. Judge J. M. Keys and
Jesso Redbird, the latter from
Goingt-nake, aro in tho lead at this
writing, or at least that's the opin
ion of most of tho prominent Na
tionals, ai.d thoy ought to know.
But little cm 'io learned as to who
will go to Washington ns dele
gates, but thero aro plenty of aspi
rants who think they would make
able representatives nt the federal
capital. For superintendent of
the male seminary, Gus Ivey. of
local nowspaper fame, and Gideon
Morgan, one of tho founders of tho
late lamented People's party, aro
rur.ninir neck and neck nnd it is
thought Gus will oUt-wind Gid on
tho homo stretch.
Senator W. E. Sanders intro
duced a bill to incarcerate prison
ers in the national jail, pending
trial ,in case they do not give bond.
Some of the fullblood members
did not at first understand the
proposition but when it was ex
plained to them tho bill passed
both houses and will be approved
by the chief.
The chief, by special message,
asked council to take somo action
in regard to the new boom city of
David, near Chelsea. Hero is tho
Whereas, Information has been
received by me that one A. J.
Ulackwell, a citizen of this nation,
has assumed to run off a certain
part of his improvement, upon tho
public domain of the Cherokee na
tion, into lots and is Belling tho
same to citizens of the United
States: and whereas, such action is
in violation of the laws of this na
tion and a fraud upon those who
buy, and will lead to further and
more serious complications of our
relations with the government of
the United States and their citi
zens, and to dissension and strife
among our puoplo, and whereas,
other citizens are said to contem
plate like action, now therefore,
I. C J. Harris, principal chief
of tho Cherokee nation, do hereby
warn all citizens of this nation to
cease such unlawful purpose, and
do hereby notify all citizens of the
United States that the pretended
Bale of such lots is in violation o!
the laws of this nation and to be
null and void, and the porsons
making such sales are frauds, im
posters and criminals, and all will
be Drosecuted in the courts of this

the seal of the Cherokee nation,
this tho 7th day of November, 1894.
C. J. Hahius,
The answer is a bill that tins
passed both houses, amending the
old law, and making it treason for
a Cherokee citizen to sell any land
of this nation to a non-citizen.
Upon conviction of violating this
proposed law, tho penalty is death
by hanging. The bill waB relum
ed to the senate by tho chief with
out his approval. He thought
well of the bill but suggested that
it be amended as to the puuUh
ment, making it tormi in prison
instead of hanging until dead.
This and ono other imperfection
was his reasons for not signing tho

Both houses of tho national coun
cil adjourned soon nfior meeting
Monday morning and repmroil to
tho opera houso to hear a talk by
U. S. Senntor Jns. K. Jones of Ar
kansas, who, it whs announced
some days ago, would be here.
Thoro were no other senators with
him, ns it was expected theto
would be. Tho opera house wns
filled to overflowing to hear the
senator speak. Chief Harris pre
sided at the meeting nnd intro
duced Senntor Jones. Hon. G.W.
Bengo acted as interpreter. Sena
tor Jones' remarks were to tho
point and wero woll received by
tho large crowd who heard them.
The pith of his speech was about
'"The time hns now corao when
the Cherokees must act on the
matter of allotment. Tho senti
ment in tho country at large and a
majority of the members of con-
cress demand a change in the con
dition of this country. It is for
the Cherokees by prompt action to
take tho lead in this question.
Delay will only force the chr.nge
upon them, and will, in all proba
bility, lead to a settlement not ns
advantageous as they might wish
Somo chango will bo demanded
and the Cherokees, by showing
the pioper disposition in the mat
ter, can obtain a much moro favor
able settlement thnn by refusing to
participate in any moves made.
The land belongs to the Indians
and every foot of it must go to
them. He will never lend his in
fluence or aid to any move to de
privo them of one foot of territory
which is theirs by right. This de
bire on tho part of congress
that the Cherokees should become
close citizens of the United States,
showed that congress considered
them worthy of that honor. It was
a tribute to their culture and civ
The senator, in conclusion,
stated that his remarks were not
mado in an official capacity but
ns n friend of the Indians.
Replying to a question by E. C.
Boudinot regarding probable trou
ble over the M., K. & T. lands in
case of allotment, the senator re
plied that the governmental course
could not guarantee that no law
suit would ensue, but as long as
the Indians as a tribo or individ
ually held a title to the lands they
could not be disturbed.
Short addresses were made by
E C. Boudinot and Senator "Saf-
gy" Sanders and others, thanking
tho senator 1'jr the interest be had
vhown in their welfare.
The addresses of Senator Jones
and the other gentlemen were well
delivered and woll received. There
is no doubt but what their remarks
will causo a deeper interest to bo
taken in this subject and moro at
tention be given to finding n
method to settle this great ques
tion of the future of our nation.
Tho meeting adjourned at noon.
Senator Jones, accompanied by
Gen. Porter, drove to Fort Gibson
