to discover over which of the pair,

The campaign being waged by
the oil men against tbo ratification
of tho treaty is indicative of the
straits to which the opposition is
driven. Their only argument is a
corruption fund which is being
freely used among the full-bloods
An outrage on the rights of
women was consumated In the
Commissioner's court yesterday
when one was fined for using a
broomstick on a man. Such an
invasion of an inalienable right
should receive the severest con
damnation. Tho misrepresentations dissem
inated by some of the opponents
of the treaty have proven to be
veritable boomerangs. As these
various lies have been exposed
thoBe who were at first deceived
have become aggressive champions
of the treaty.
Jit Smith is making a 'vigor
ous campaign for the council in
Delaware district, and the voters
of that district will make a mistake
If ho is not elected. 'The great.
?st good to the greatest number,"
Is the platform upon which ho is
making his race.
Oil Smith, candidate for a seat
In the council in Delaware, is un.
qualifledly for the pending allot
ment bill, and is working as bard
for its ratification as for hU own
eleotion.- This-, alone, should rec
ommend him to the honest voterB
of his district.
About the only crime or mallei,
oua intention that Too qua slee
has not charged against the gov
eminent is that they intended to
condemn the Cberokeea to listen
to his everlasting prattle. But
then Bucb barbarism is too horri
ble for contemplation.
The opponents of the treaty
have failed to'conslder the intelli
gence of the Cherokee citizen in
their fight against that meaturo.
No Cherokee who understands its
provisions la going to vote agalntt
it, unless influenced by prejudice
or some purely selfish motive.
There is an unaccountable leth
argy among a large element con
corning tho treaty. There eeems
to be a feeling abroad that tho

No rational reasou has yet been

of that district and will, if elected,

The true friends of the Chreo
kees are desirous of seeing a set
tlement of the tribal estate so that
each ono can reoeive his equitable
share before it dwindles away.
Tho most strenuous opponents of
the treaty are those who have con.
ticually robbed the nation and do
not want to lose so rich u craft.

McAlester has received notice
that the pay of jurors has be on in

fact that some of the opponents of

1KUAIY OR THE CURTIS LAW?
Under tho above caption V. L.
Trott has issued a printed argu
ment against the ratification of the
pending treaty which in a way is
unique. It Ij an Illogical master
piece; a fllm'j tissue of puerile
repetitions of exploded misrepre
sentations. A completo analysis
of its weird assertions would oc
cupy time which they In no way
deserve. One of the most grotes
que features is the assertion (bat
tne treaty is favorable to the oil
companies. No one knows better
than Mr. Trott that the oil leases
were granted under the provisions
of the Curtis Act and that the rat
ification of the treaty will invali
date those unholy instruments and
drive the oil pirates out of busi
neBS. The most bitter enemies oi
the treaty are the oil men and tho
only consistent campaign that is
being made against its ratification
Is being conduo'.ed by their agents
with their money. A fact known
to all and of which a man as con
versant with Cherokee aflairs as
Mr. Trott must certainly be oog.
nizant. It is this "oent-ficent"
Curtis Act which has thrown the
treasure vaults.of the nation wide
open to these professional looters
which Mr. Tiott wildly appeals to
the Cherokees to accept in lieu of
a meaiure which makes each citi
zen steward of bis own. Probably
tbo moBt flagrant misrepresenta
tion in this most marvelous col
lection is found in tho repetition
of the assertion that the treaty
grants each alternate section of
land to the railroads. Mr. Trott
could have employed his time to
better advantage when he wrote
that paragraph by coming to this
office and receiving a check for 8100
by adducing proof of his assertion.
Mr, Trott well knows that there is
a standing offer from this office to
pay tho sum of 8100 to anyone
who can bhow where the treaty
contains any such illegal provi
sion. The entire document is
woven out of just fuch palpable
misrepresentations. No one doubts
the sincerity ol Mr. Trott's oppo
sltlon to tbo treaty. Hut it is an
opposition born, cradled and nur
tured in prejudice. A prejudice
which seeking gratification would
condemn the Cherokees to a delay
in the settlement of their affairs
until their uatate has dwindled
away under the blighting touch of
the corruptionietfl who have grown
wealthy at their expense,
