And so the Indian territory will

Tho number of people looking
i fur real estate in Vinita increases
as fast as thd days go by. Proper

same price a few months hence
will seem to be a snap in the way
of an investment.
When the bill submitted by the
secretary of the interior, provid

ol .Cherokee affairs, becomes a
law, will be time enough to print
and discuss it. Judgment should
be withheld pending its enactment
At present it counts for little.
The Cuiokeo nation Is in the
infancy of development. The next
few years will see a wonderful
transformation. Taken as a whole,
it is by far tho most productive
section of the Indian country.

In wiring to Washington his en
dorsement of the.propoBed division
of the northern district, Judgo
Gill displayed a spirit that it
would be well for some of his con
ferree to emulate. It is refreshing
to eee a man rise above the dic
tates of personal interests and to
ignore those differences, while an
noying. often prevent the consum
ation of some measure for the
benefit of the public.
If the Washington dispatches In
the metropolitan press are true,
Pliny Leland 8oper Ib in Washing
ton for the purpose of fighting the
Moon bill. The Vinita contingent
did not understand that Sopor's
business in Washington was for
the sole purpose of defeating what
ninetentha of the people of this
town and the Indian territory
want to become a law. It is al
ways unsafe to trust Soper where
thero is politics at stake.
A bomb was thrown into tho
camp-of the Kansas delegation nt

It were as feasible to dam up
Grand River and stop its flow as
to atop legislation affecting the
Indian Territory Indeed it Ib
not advisable that this work stop,
and would be well nigli disastrous
to the business interests of the
territory to stop the onward move
ment. We have at last reached
a point where even tho Indian, the
owners of the laud, are heartily in
favor of n Nttuuly fnmard move

Another one of those wonderful
Washington messages in which
Col. Rob't L. Owen haB won a
case for the Eastern Cberokees in
which bis fee is 220,000, has been

decision of the court of claims,
when the chbo in question ia not
in court at all.
The refusal of the city author!
ties to allow woo en buildings

contrary to the city ordinance, is
commendable. Tbe sooner we
get down to brick and mortar in

the better for all concerned, and

We are in receipt of a copy of
the bill for the allotment of land

and reported by tbe secretary of

in lieu of tbe Cherokee memorial

submitted at the same time and
printed together. Tbe provision
for title is that the principal chitf

The conference commltteo has
tbe Indian appropriation bill un
der consideration, and the ques
tions at issue between the houfo
and senato promises to, be arnica
One of the most important Jf
tlieBe is that relating to the Dawes
ciimmiesinn. The house commit,
lee reduced the membership of
of lite Dawes commission to threo
and provided for prompt action in
dosing the rolls of the tribes and
tilt allotment of lands in the In
dian territory. The senate com
mittee restored the commission
membership to its original num
ber, but retained the provisions
fixing the time for the closing of
the membership rolls and the nl
lolment of the Indian lauds'. It is
probably that the houe will no
cept the senate amendment in this
respect, but it is certain that the
agitation of Ihe question, tbe anx
iety of the secietary of the intor
ior to havo the business of the
commission hastened to a condit
ion and other influences that are
working in the support of the
policy of the administration will
result in giving now life to tire
commission and causing it to com
plete the work, which has been
drapging lor several years Every
influence of the men most interest
ed in tho disposition of the Indian
question is now directed to secur
ing the conclusion of this work
and the final allotment of Ihp
lands of the five civilized rihea
not later than July 1, 1004
The second feature in import
ance is the settlement of the leas
ing problem, and this will be a
mooted question in the conference
committee. The promotion com
paniea and land syndicates that
have been busily engaged in secur
ing nominal control of the Indian
lands are on hand with a lobbv
opposing the leasing provisions
that have been embodied in the
These provide that no losses
made without the opproval of the
secretary of the interior shall bo
oonsldered valid. Tbe companies
in quettion have secured leases
upon nea-ly 1,000,000 ores of land
In the best sections ol the Indian
territory, and will make a stun
born fight against losing their bold
on prospective fortunes.
The provis.ons of the bill fram
ed by the secretary of the interior
is designed lo prever t the Indians
from being robbed and to protect
them in their homestead rights.
Another provision prevents ex
oedH holdings in the territory by
Indiana or whiteB, and these will
probably be approved about as
recommended by Mr IIitchoick
The mineral lu.ini nrnvlamn-
have also been drawn for the pro
tection ol ihe rights of the Indian
and will probably be approved, al
though there is oppoiuon u them
from mining syndicates and those
who seek lo secure onntrnl o' val
