TUB CURTIS HILL.
The bill that ia now most likely
to become a law effecting the
rigble of Cherokaes is that one
which was introduced laat Satur
day by Representative Curtis of
Kanea. It provides for the Al
lotment of Uu acres of average al
lotable land, and all the lands are
to be appraised at their true value
without regard to loetijw or im
provements thereon. All the land
is made inalienable for five years,
and the smallest subdivision of
land that can be taken in allot
ment is ten aores. Forty acres
aiut bs designated as a horns-
stead aud ft made Unalienable dur
ing the lifetime' of the allotee. It

bill by a popular vota of the quail

Senator Burton will receive no
further consideration from Presi
dent llooeevelt. The president
baa taken an emphatic stand with
reference to Mr, Burton's course in
the Cuban reciprocity controversy,
and in tho future ho will bn re

istration dud will bo treated as

Territory, will not bo appointed.

Mr. Burton in politics and ia
counting on the senator, will bo
removed, and Wiggam, the candi
date of Representative Miller, sup
ported.by Mr. Burton for poatmas
ter a t Emporia, will be turned
downforeome other republican. Pol
iticians at the capital were amazed
when they read in tbe newspapors
of Mr. Burton's intcmerate apocch
at tho republican senatorial oon
ferenco last week, nnd tliero was
not a little speculation as to what
effect bib renmarks would have at
the White house.
That President Roosevolt would
tako notice of.'ho incident was
not donbted for a moment, but the
politicians wore hardly prepared
for the determined attitude as
sumed by the prnsident. It ia
now generally accepted as a fact
that the senator will be disciplined,
and that his course in tho Cuban
oontroverBy will be resented by
tbe most effective means at the
president's command. Kanssns
at the capital discueaad the devel
opraenta of the Cuban controversy
affecting Mr. Burton with much I
interest. It haB been knoun here,
that the senator whs especial',,,
