THOSE LONG LEASES

That Amounj (o
Deeds.
Chief Plensant Portor, of the
Creek nation, is in Washington on
a twofold mission. II o desires the
ratification ot a tuppjemental
treaty with the Creeks, and io also
anxious that some action bo taken
by the interior department to put
a stop to tho wholesale leasing of
Creek lands by the five invest,
companies that are operating in
tho territory. According to state
menta made by Chief Porter to Mr.
W. A. Jones, commissioner of In
dian n flairs, these speculators
have secured already nearly 1,000,.
000 acres of Creek lands under
leases that practically amount to
a deed. They aro working on a
plan that threatens the absorbtion
by tho investment companies of
nearly all of tho landed property
of the Creeks. In a long confer
ence with Commissioner Jones the
Creek chief explained the situa
Jtion in detail. lie presented copies
of these leases that are being en
tered into by the hundreds and
explained the mothod by which,
bo declared, the investment com
panies, taking .advantage of tho
Indians' willingness to sell any
thing for a little moner, are get
ting control of thousands of acres
Ot most valuable lands in the
Crook nation.
The lease exhibited by Chief
Porter is of the ironclad varioty.
It provides that the Indian shall
lease all rights, titles and Interests
in their lands to the investment
company for n period of ninoty
pine years at a fixed turn per an
num, The lease thenrecileB that
the investment pompanles, desir
ing to discount their obligation,
offer a lump sum to the Indians
instead of the annual payments.
The further provision is made thai
the Indians, when they receive
theirtitiet) to the lands, shall deed
tbem to tho investment companies
in consideration ol another sum,
named in the lease.
Commissioner Jones was in
formed that fivo of these com
panioa, located ct Muscogee, Wag
oner and other towns in tho torri
tory, now have 050,000 acres oi
Crook lands tied up in such loases,
and have secured them fur very
small prymenta. Chief Porter is
vory anxious to havu some action
by tho department of the interior,
or eomo legislation that will put a
Btop to this Byalem, whioh, he do
claw;, is calculated to cause end
less trouble and litigation when
tha Oreeka receive their deeds to
their lands,
Commissioner Jones declared
that, In his opinion, tho leasea
are not worth the paper they
are 'written on, but will uo
doubtedly lead to litigation
and cauio much trouble In the
final disposition of the lands. 'Un
der tho Creek treaty," said Mr.
Jtdee, "the Creeks have a right to ,
leane tboir lands fur one y oar Any
lease for a longer period of time
than ono yosr must bo approved
by t.ie interior department. These
long.tlmo Ipruoh of which Chief
Porter spanks have nover been
subintttt-d to tho department and
ore clearly a violation 0f the law,
9omo action should cortalnly bo
taken to prevent tho Creeks from
being robbed by land shark.
There would be millions In it for
theBe Investment companies if
these leases should be held
valid."
Ohief Porter is aho anxious to
eecuro a supplemental treaty wilh

may secure their lands by acres

INDIAN REMINISCENCE.
A Ramble tu the Old Haunt by
Moonlight.
We look a ramble over again the
many old places that afforded us
pleasure when young. First tho
druse thicket where we shot birds
with our little bow and arrows. It
waB gone, not a bush nor a stump
standing. Where wo once killed
a grey equirre! off a tree was a
shade tree In a yard where ran and
played half a dozen little children
lighter in complexion than we aro
Wo turned and wont to a littlo
lake that was in tho woods, where
we used to kill a mess of ducks,
this also had been filled and was
growing a crop, the banks thereof
had been transformed into a home.
Then we turned and roamed over
the rivbr bottom where the Umber
wbb so large we could not -each a
squirrel with an arrow. Thia wo
found to be all gone, not a tree
stood, but a great farm was there
enolosed with iron. About this
time wo remembered a fine flow
ing spring where wo had shyly
tried to court a darkeyed beauty
but we could not get near the
spring without permission as it
with all of the wild woods, had
betin converted into a fine mil),
ing property. Then wo turned
our course to the old (lining and
bathing hole on the river where
We have whlled away many a hap
py hour. In going we thought
the river had been moved in the
ah utile as we did not seotho grand
old willows which were wont to
fringe the water's edge, but alas
these grand old trees had been fel
led to satisfy the whims of civilii
tion; and whero we had swam and
caught fish, there stood a great
iron structure, which proved to be
an iron bridg leading out, one end
north, the other south, to all
points.
Being di-gusted, we turned and
said, "wo will go out on the pni
rie where we in our boyhood shot
and killed prairie hen," and when
we reached the once prairio there
stood hundreds and hundreds of
great, fat cttlle within the
walls of an iron fence. Then
we gave up our ramble. Coming
by the place where somb if our
loved ones He in everlasting slum
ber, we saw, as it wero, a great
wbito oily. We wero amazed at
the sight, because all was new
where all was quietude; children
played and seemed happy, though
in the city of the dead.
We ambled back to our den and
wondered on tha past. Then we
heard the sound of revelry, the
dance ball was in full blast; we
heard tho clinking of classes.
which contained the white man's
whiskey; wo heard the swearing
and oaths ol the white man, now
anil then a random shot of the re
volver ol tho whlto man. This
reminded us of the old Indian
prophecy, "The Indian will go
and bo diiven toward the setting
sun until there will be no place
for him to lay his tired body and
that will be the end ot him."
But this is called civilization,
Christian religion, and the savage
must go down before it, Then it
carpe to us, in mind, that the in
evitablo was upon the Indian.

Of Drought Sufferers Brought to
the Attention of the Interior
Department With Request
for Funds From Roy.
ally Receipts,
The immediato necessity of ro
llevlng the suffering fullbloodn,
who ore struggling against all the
horrors ol starvation in tho Bnow
clad fastnesses of the hills, has
aroused the' tribal authorities to
take action, and Chief Bufliingtnn
will left for Washington Tues
day in personally rpquest the
secretary of tho interinr to allow
the payment of 810,000 from the
funds received from royalties, for
reliol purposes
There is approximately 430,000
in the sub treasury at St. Louis to
the credit of the nation, and wih
the consent ol tho department
this money will be immediatelv
available.
Chief Bufllngton was in consul
tation at Muskogee Saturday with
Agent Blair G. Shoenfelt, In re
gardto divorting part of the roy.
ally fund for the purposo of
purchasing supplies for the suf
ferers, and received an assurance
from the agent (hat he would urge
upon the department tho necesei.
ty of prompt action.
The suffering among thoBo whose
crops were ueBiroyea oy ine great
drought of last summer, has be
come bo acute that several com.
munites havo instituted relief
measures, pending the necessary
delay through payments from the
tribal tunds.
They will investigate the cases
of destitution in the territory con
tiguous tu them, and give all tern,
pnrary relief within their own dir
trio's.
No measures havo as vet been
undertaken in Vinila to raiee a re
lief fund, but unless the interior
department grants immediately
tho request for fund's, it will bo
incumbent upon this community
to answer the call of humanitv.
aud assist in relieving the unfor
tunates, who cannot survivo the
winter without material aid.
A number of citizens have ex
pressed their willincness to con.
tribute most generously, and in
case Chief Buifiugton fails in his
mission to Washington, the collec
tion of a relief fund will be inaugu
rated at once.
There is a wide divergence of
npinion as to tho best means of
conducting the distribution of
supplies, but it is certain that no
money will be paid out direct.
An immediate and thorough in
veetigatlon will be made of all
cases by those selected tor the pur
pose, and the supplies will be dis
tributed in some manner later to
be decided on, through the same
channels.

Mr. William Higglns was the
invited to address the clnb. H
had only recently returned from
Washington, and after a careful
investigation of the bills nendlntr
in congress, providing for tbe
formation of counties, he wan well
prepared to address tbe club on
ihe subject. He was given marked
attention, and upon producing a
map showing in detail tbe pro
visions of the Jett and Flynn bills,
the membera present saw in a mo
ment the injury which would be
doue to Vinila and farmers on the
south and east.
After an animated discussion, it
was conoeded something should
be dono, mid done quickly. It
was sta-ed that Mr. Soper had in
course of preparation a bill which
waa much more fair to Vinila. It
was decided unanimously to tele
graph Mr Super, who ia now in
Washington, A vote of confidence
in Mr. Super was proposed by Mr.
Amos, in thin matter, and tbe sec
retary directed to telegraph him
that his fellow citizens looked to
him to protect our rights.

There is a wide divergence of
opinion among tho membera of
the committee concerning the die
position that shall be made of the
Indian territory case. There is no
sentiment in favor of admitting
tho territory into tbe Union as a
part of Oklahoma, the differences
being confined to the character of
the government that shall be pro
vlded for the territory. The Moon
bill has been strongly urgd. Tbe
objection to it ia that it provides
for a full territorial form of gov
ernment with tho conferment ex
pen8e in taxation that must be
borne by personal taxes until such
time as the Indiana' landa am
made subject to taxation. Some
of the members of tbe committee
urge that the territory cannot af
ford to assume such a burden and
they are making an effort for the
adoption of tbe Curtis bill, which
provides for a governor, secretary
of the territory and a delegate to
congress, to be appointed by the
President, and tbe expense of the
government to be borne by the
federal government. This matter
is now in tbe hands of a subcom
mittee, which will report to the
lull committee next week.
