Vinita, Ind. Ttfrt., Oct. 22, 1800.
The Muldrow Regislor Is not
giving much attention to claimants
to oltlzcnahip those days.
On that tho Dawes commission
hurt iho maklnc of the roll of
frcodtnonl is now the universal
winh of the Chorokces.
Tiik list of namos ot claimants
whoso cases have boon decided oo-
cunr a very largo portion of our
snaco In this issuo, and will con
tlnae to bo printed weekly till all
havo boon disposed of.
The Cuikftain will bavo full
weekly reports from Tahlequah
during council, and it is tbo Inten
tion to mako tbo lettors just as full
of interesting matter as possible.
Everything that concerns tbo
Ohorokoo nation will bo given lull
ecopo ia thoso columns.
TnETahloquab advocate takes
The Chieftain to task for "eond-
ing the impression abroad that the
Chorokces are tardy in negotiating
with tbo Dawes commission," and
says that "such is not tho case."
Thon tho samo paper in tho very
earno paragraph proceeds to arguo
that timo is tho thing desirod.
Consistency is said to be a jewel.
The contempt cases against a
number of our cllizons woro sum
marily dismissed by Judge Watt
Starr at Claremoro last Monday.
This town in not exactly "between
the dovil and the doep sea," but
betwoen Hoolio Bell and Jim Tit
tlo it is constantly on tho "rack."
But whatever happon6 the proper
ty owners and tax payors will con
tinue to pay tho bills.
The grand jury concluded its la
bors Tuesday afternoon and made
its final report to the court. In
thanking them for their very effi
cient work Judge 8pringer said
"You have more than vindicated
the wisdom of congress in enlarg
ing the jurisdiction of your courts,
and you have fully demonstrated
the fact that law and order can
safely be maintained in this country."
One week from next Monday
tho Cherokootiouncil will assem
ble in regular session. From pres
ent indications questions of vital
interest to tho nation will bo con
sidered, and doubtless bo legis
lated upon. It would he impos
sible to forecast with any degreo
of accuracy what will be attempted
or done, but it is earnestly hoped
that no dilatory tactics will bo in
dulgod in, but that the "bull will
be taken by the horns."
A very commendable silence
reigns in' a number of newspa
per offices in this territory as to
the DaweB commission and its
work among the Indians. Not
many months ago their columns
were filled with violent abuso of
the commission, and they did
everything in tboir power to pre
vent its return here last summer,
declaring that it was a schomo of
Jeff Watts to get tbo intruders ad
mitted to citizenship. It is with
a great deal of pride that this pa
per refors to its record along that
line, for it hailed tho creation of
tbo Dawes commission three years
ago with tho utmost confidence as
to the ultimate result. And now
the real work of the commission
has begun and its work speaks for
itself, and it was not over-estimated
in any particular.
where ho Is "at." Thon will boa
good time to placo ovory citizen
upon his prorata share- of tho land
and not wait for tho country to
again be fillod up with claimants.
Tns Chieftain Is not urging tin
dno hasto, but is apposing undue
More Officers Sorely Needed.
Deab Sisters: -Some time this
summer sialor Alcnotto Cook in
sisted earnestly that I bring tho
Armonian question beforo the pco
plo of this neighborhood. "Can't
you havo a bonefit for thoir re
lief?" alio asked. I promised I
Now tho best way to koop a
promise is to fulfill it.
One ovening in August I talked
to tho Sunday school about it, and
tried to got a collection but with
out success as tho subject seemed
to be new to most of thorn, ana tho
school was noarly all composod of
women ana gins tnai uay, ana you
know thoy aro a poor audionco
from which to mako a collection.
Then an enterrainmont was talked
of. I took sick with tho fever a
few days alter and was not ablo to
bo out until last Sunday week,
when tho Armenian question was
discussed again and it was settled
that it being a relief fund and ow
ing to my recontillness which pre
vented mo from attending at night
that tho next Sunday evening we
would tako a lunch thero consist
ing of pie ana cako, ana tho pro
ceeds go to tne Armenians.
On tho appointed timo after
Sunday school, just as several
couples of young ladies and gen
tlemen were being seated to eat,
two men walked swiftly into the
house, ono sat down for a fow
minutes. As moro wero starting to
eat ono of them sprang to his feet
and called a halt to tho proceed
ings, told tho young people not to
oat nor pay a cont 'til thoy heard
Irotn him. ouch a tirade against
the Armenians and tho workers
never was heard before. lie said
Armenia didn't need it; that tho
ereat want and suffering was only
an exaggeration, and Armenia bad
never bad a dollar or the money
tbat had been collected already
from the people When I made a
protest that no stop talking and
that ho was breaking a public
meeting, as a panic was in evi
dence, and I denounced bis right
to come thero, and his conduct un
fit to bo at a church or school
house, ho told mo I was trying to
act like a man and that it was
nonooi my business what he did;
he was alreo citizen.
Now I consider it a compliment
to think that as I was presiding
over the meeting, that I was in
telligent enough to act like a man
and try to stop him not a drunk
on wretch likojhim, but liko tho
men tbat tho foundations of thiB
government rests on. I looked
around at my Sunday school boys
and knew that I was safe from
even tho tap of a pencil which ho
ehook violently at mo. I tell you
inters, mon, real men, are tho
onos we owo tho protection of our
good namos today.
Why, when I told that fellow
that Judge McClure lived over in
Vinita, it acted liko soothing syr
up. Judge Parker may havo faults,
ho may be severe, but I shall save
my flowori for him and other such
men who uphold the protection of
women ratuor man givo mem 10
Well, tbat follow paraded around
and talked 'till he saw thero was
no use. Ono of the boys 'lighted

Tho Arrow says it will tako at
least fivo yeais to complete the
survoy of this country, and longer
to allot it. If this is true, tho sur
veyors themselves don't know
what they aro talking about, and
the work they have already done
is no criterion as to what is yet to
bo performed. Tho abovo state
ment, if believed, is misleading
and will do harm. Tho people of
tho Cherokee nation have a right
to know the true status of thoir af
fairs, and no man nor no nowspa
per will be ablo to mislead them
much longer. This same Arrow
fought the Dawos commission
tooth and nail, and was in favor of
the national council retaining the
solo right to pass upon questions
of citizenship. But would it un
dertake to got its readers to be
liuvo that tho Dawes commission
had not done good servico in this
matter, and that it was not wise
in congress to tako the jurisdiction
in citizenship cases away from the
Clierokeo council? It is a littlo re
marJftiUo that tho Arrow would
undertake to renew the fight and
to prolong tho time further. Thero
is no wisdom or eafoly to the
Clierokeo pooplo in such argu
ment Twelve or eighteen months

A Costly Experience
T. W. Triplet, oi Tahlequah, I.
T., clerk of tho district court there,
who is a guest at tbe Midland, lost
81,100 somewhere Monday night
while out looking about over the
city with somo irionds whom ho
met hero. He brought the money
to bet on tho election of McKinley.
lie was looking for somo bets, and
made soveral acquaintances and
indulged in some convivialty Mon
day evening early. During the
evening he went to the hotel,
whore he left his watch and a
small sum of money for safo keep
ing. He was advised to leave all
ho carried, but did not do so, und
ho spent most of tho night with
bis friends, Yestorday when ho
awoko he was unable to find the
largo roll ho wanted to bet, but
had a hazy recollection of having
deposited it witb some frionds
witli whom be spent a portion of
the night, but Ib entirely unable
to locato the friend or his placo of
business, and is oi the opinion he
is out that amount. The police
are of the opinion he was made
tho victim of alleged friends.

that it was tbo work of an incendiary.
