claim known pb tho Slade-Bender
accounting or the 84,000,000 found
due the Chorokeo nation according
to said accounting. Tho hlslcry
of this claim is well known, though
somewhat misunderstood, or mis-
interpreted by interested parties.
The facts are, tho eastern Cher
okeeB had a balance of $1,111,284.
70 due them with interest at five
per cent from June 12, 1838. But
the eastern Cherokees wero given
full rights in the Cherokee nation,
and whatever funds they had were
placed to the credit of the whole
Cherokeo people. They were al
lowed to sharo equally with the
old settlers in the lauds west of

undoubtedly belongs to the Chero.

Hon, James M. Robinson, repre

"Indian torritory is an anomaly
in the body politic of the country.
This has been the sontiment of all
the thoughtful who have given at
tention to its status. It wasjvoiced
by ex-President Harrison in a

a subject for the last report of the

sort of government suited to their
needB in great meaeuro, but wholly
inadequate for them in community
or for the territory, if they were
applicablo in a general way, which
they are not.

designation would imply, aro
