The Kechi township election to vote aid
in the stun of $10,000 to the Kansas Mid

with the benefits which -will accrue to the
township by the building of this railroad.
Mr. E. P. Ford, county clerlc'of Sedgwick
countv, authorizes the statement, that the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa ITe railroad
through Kechi township, is assessed at the
rate of $G,S19.70 per mile, and paid in
taxes iu lJsSl, hi that township, the sum of
$i,2til.4."i on 0 1-2 miles of railroad, and a
total assessed valuation of $14,030. We
can safely estimate that the Kansas, 3Iid

rate as the Santa F as this is to be a
THAT HAEANCE SHEET,
Following an examination made by the.
county commissioners of the books and ac
counts of the county treasurer, the Eagle
published on last Saturday morning the
balance sheet. That balance sheet was and
is correct. The criticism, however, was
offerrd to the effect that the exhibit did not
show the warrants in the hand? of the
treasurer which hail been redeemed, but
not cancelled, etc. A paid warrants and
paid towns-hip orders, etc., are :is much
cash to the treasurer and his accounts
as greenbacks tho whole amount of
these amounting to $9,0GD.07 was culled,
and properly o, as so much "cash in hands
of trcauier." But to shufoff all quibble
Commissioner Aley went over the amounts
:md separated each of these items so that
the balance sheet iis it appears this morning
shows the different amount of each separate
item of which $9.0G9.G7 consists of..
In addition to the balance sheet thus
taken off wc publish this morning the treas
urer's full report and also that of the com
missioners. Taken all together the reports
published this morning give an exact ex
hibit of the affairs and finances of the
county and correctly to a cent.
There has been a studied effort upon the
part of Democratic papers and politicians
in Kansas, to lav the failure of the opening
of the Indian Territory, and especially of
the district of Oklahoma, at the door of
Senator Plumb, Congressman Peters and
others of the Kansas delegation. N line
the Eagle had no sympathy with the
boomers in their attempts to force matters
in the face of Arthur's proclamations, we
repeatedly set out the fact that Senator
Plumb was industriously at work endeav
oring to convince the senate and adminis
tration that the tiling was inevitable and
that therefore the sooner the whole matter
was taken cure of and the Territory opened
by proper legislation, the better it would be
for all concerned, including the Indians.
"Mr. Plumb made the only notable speech
in the senate on the rmestion, extracts from
which were published by this paper. Judge
Peters and Kyan in the House were just as
earnest. After action had been secured by
both houses, directing President Cleveland,
who in refusing to comply, replies by de
nominating the men who were asking a
settlement of the question as unlawful com
binations. The Emporia Repub
lican of yesterday, treating of
the presidential attitude, says that
the people of southwestern Kan
sas, who have been largely interested in the
settlement of Oklahoma, have had their
hopes in this direction crushed by the pol
icy of the present administration. The sec
retary of the interior in his report for 1S85
characterizes those citizens of Kansas and
other ststes wlio sought to make homes in
that country as "outlaws and depredators"
and says they "will discover the impossibil
ity of success when they find themselves
confronted by the law of the land, strength
ened by the civil and military arm and
backed by the moral sentiment of a just
oeople." Congress authorized the presi
dent to open negotiations for the opening
of the Oklahoma country. This favorable
action of congress was secured by the efforts
of Senator Plumb, Hon. Thos. Ryan, Hon.
S. R. Peters and other members of our dele
gation, who did all they could, in the face
of a fresh and hostile administration, to
aid the people in their efforts to settle in
this desirable country. So, the Republi
can representatives from Kansas got
throuffh a measure authorizing the presi
dent to open negotiations for these lands
throudi a commission, but, the administra
tion, arrogant with an unexpected political
victory, refused to carry it out, and, to cap
ti... niirrmv. characterized this advance
guard of daring pioneers as "outlaws.
And yet, we understand, some of these
men who have been beaten back and in
sulted are votinsr the Democratic ticket.
Those thai eio so simply lick the hand that
smites them. To show that our statement
of the case is correct wc copy from the re
port of L. Q. C. Lamar, Mr. Cleveland's
secretary of the interior, what he sa3's on
the Oklahoma question as follows;
Bv the third article of the treaty of Au
gust 10, 1SCJG (U Stat., 7G0). it is stipulated
that "in compliance with the desire of the
United States to locate other Indians and
freed men thereon, the Scniinoles ceded to
the United States their entire domain," con
sisting of 2,109,030 acres, at the rate of 15
cents per acre.
Bv the third article of the treaty of Au
gust 11, 18G0 (Ibid., 780), the Creeks, for
flic same purpose, ceded to the United
States the wct half of their entire domain,
which cession passed 3,402,4:J0 acres, at
the rate of 30 cents per acre. The two ces
sions combined aggregate 5,571,410 acres.
The Indians have been paid therefor ac
cording to agreement.
In pursuance of the purpose for which
these lands were ceded to the United States,
portions on the cast and tho west thereof
have been from time to time set apart for
and assigned to certain tribes and bands of
friendly'Indians for their use and occu
pancv. That portion of the land remaining un
appropriated to the trust provided for in
the treaties lies very nearly in the center of
the Indian Territory. It is this unappro
priated tract that is" commonly called the
"Oklahoma country." Xo agent of the
government resides "upon this land, and it
is not occupied in anv way by any person
or persons for any purpose under any au
thority of this department.
An organized movement by certain pcr-s-ons
was begun and set on foot some years
n:ist for the forcible possession ot and set
tlement upon thee lands under the plea
that thev formed a part of the public do

ment under the general land laws of the
United States. 'To prevent such unlawful
and unauthorized settlements it became
necessary for the executive to is
sue the proehr.nation of April
20. 1S79. Februarv 12, 1S30, and
July 1, 18S4, defining the status of those
lands, and warning all persons againt any
attempts to go or settle thereupon. It had
also been necessary to use a part of the mil
itary force of the United States to remove
intruders who had succeeded in getting into

proposed to run, has not been extinguished.
The railroad has not been constructed upon
or extended into that territory, and conse
quently it has not acquired possession nor
the right of possession of any portion of
those lands under that law.
In the case of the Unied States vs. D. L.
Payne, tried in the district court of the
United States for the western district of
Arkansas, Judge Parker cited the decis
ions of the supreme court in the case of
"Wilcox vs. Jackson (13 Pet., 2GG,) "where
in it is held that whenever a tract of land
iias been appropriated to the public, use it
is sevcied from the mass of the public do
main, and subsequent laws of state are not
construed to embrace it though they do not
in terms except it." He also refers to the
case of the Leavenworth, Lawrence fc Gal
veston road vs. the United States (2 Otto,
733.) which rcafiirms the doctrine in "Wil
cox vs. Jackson, and holds further that
"this doctrine applies with more force to
Indians than to military reservations."
Judge Parker then adds: "1 think, there
foie, from the authorities I have cited, and
from the language of this section that there
is no doubt that "this act of congress has not
changed the land in controversy from the
condition of a reservation.
Xotwithstanding the ruling of the inte
rior department, the proclamation of the ex
ecutive, and the solemn adjudications of
the federal court of competent jurisdiction
I over the parties and over the subject mat
ter, upon a clear statement oi lacts on
both sides of the question, all holding that
these lands arc not a part of the public do
main and are not subject to pre-emption
and homestead entry under the general
land laws of the United States, but on the
contrary that they are a part of the Indian
Territory, that they are not unappropriated
lands, but lands dedicated to specific pur
poses, yet it is to be regretted that re
peated "attempts have been made to make
forcible entry and possession upon said
It has become generally known through
out this country "that this large tract of
land, fertile, w'ell watered, and with its
mild climate, is unoccupied, and that i' has

The lands reserved for the accommoda
tion of the Indians are undoubtedly much
larger in cnlcut than h needed for their
wants and accommodations. There can be
no harm in recognizing the gradual cur
rent slowly tending in the direction of civ
ilized occupation and use of the Indian Ter
ritory, as the Indians themselves become
consolidated upon fewer residential points;
but rapacity and lawlessness will not abide
the gradual and gentle method of change,
and seek by violence and forcible invasion
to displace law and treaty and the sens-: of
obligation to both, and fide roughshod into
possession of the lands of the
Indian reservations. "Will it not
be a lesson valuable there and
valuable elsewhere to show to
such transgressors that their way is hard,
nnd that nothing will render the Indian oc
cupation more permanent, or postpone the J
change in the use ot tnese lantis longer
thaiuhe attempts to invade and by force to
obtain possession and enjoyment of them?
The outlaws and depredators who imagine
thev can override the law and violate treaty
obligations with the Indians, will discover
the impossibility of success when they find
themselves confronted by the law of the
land, strengthened by the civil and military
arm, and backed by the moral sentiment of
a just people.
