CHIEFS IN BIG PARTY
After Several Battles, Indians
Get Yellow Metal Some
Reports that small traces of gold
nrra being found in the Klatntchl
mountains!, in southeastern Okla
homa causes a mumbor of old
C'herokres residing In this city to re
call a pllffrlmaffo that certain Choro
kp.i made before the war between
the states to the aoldcn stato In quest
Tho Cherokee cold seekers drovo
overland, takins with ahem a herd of
cattle so ui to bo provided with
plenty of meat. Tho caravan, if it
may bo,lcrmcd such, left Tahlequalt
In tho spring of 1804. passed up tho
tanks of tho Arkansas river, turning
unit Just south of whero tho present
town of Ucd Fork 1 situated.
Tho gold seekers loft the Arkamnn
at tho mouth of thd Cimarron and
decided to follow It to tho foothills
of tho KockJcH, and In tho western
part of what Is today Oklahoma, they
encountered tho warlike Cheyennes.
Fovoral battles tbok place, but as tho
Ohorokcra wero all stronger armed,
the Cheyenne soon loft them In
Martin Schrlmsher and Itlchard
Keys were tho leaders of tho Chero
kees, who numbered about 100.
Schrlmsher was" a Chcj-okeo citizen
by marriage. Ills grandson IB Hrncst
Bchrlmshcr, ex-postmaster of Col
llnsvllle. Another member was John
It. Carter, undo of Congressman
Charles D. Carter of Ardmoro.
A hirgo per cent of tho gold Book
ers wore of mixed blood, and all woro
t-liarp shots and efficient horsemen.
Nothing unusual occurred to the
caravan after they crossed the plains
of Texas, Kansas and New Mexico.
Tho IMcblo Indians that tho Choru
Ices encountered In New Mexico nnd
Arizona greeted them hospitably nnd
eulded them on tho way west.
After some months time tho party
reached Mariposa county, California,
which was then overrun with pros
rectors frpm all parts of tho coun
try and many from foreign countries,
attracted thcro by tho discovery of
gold In '46.
No accurate records wore kept by
the Chcrokees in he party, but n
diary that is now.,owned by relatives
of S. n. Lewis, an attorney of this
city, shows that Carter found Home
nuggets on his cfcilm, but "as it come
Msy, It went tho same way." And
this tendency on tho part of tho oth
ers caused thorn to soon part with
what gold they had found or ac
cumulated nt tho gaming table. At
any rate not a single one navod any
money, and In 1S57 certain of the
Cherokee mixed bloods took pasfngo
upon a big sailing ship that was to
pa-s around Capo Horn nnd land
them In New York city.
Adverse winds on tho middle Pa
cific blew tho yessel upon tho shores
of Nicaragua while tho Walker party
et revolutionists wero seeking to
overthrow tho native government.
The Indians w;ere taken prisoner and
tfntover tho mountains to Orcvtown.
the Oulf of Mexico seaport of this
The Indians wero tried as prison
ers of war. but It was finally proven
that they knew nothing of the inten-
tlons of WTalker, or the other Ameri
can adventurers with him, to capture
Ontral America, nnd establish a sort
of nn American empire.
They were acquitted, but ordored
tojk'jlt the country, so took pasnago
onS vessel going' to Now Orleans.
I-a., and landed there early in 1859.
While In California tho mixed
bloods found D. W. Hushyhead, later
chief of tho Chcrokeo Nation for
f-frht years. Ho had preceded the
wlied bloods to California, driving
serosa the ijlalns In 'an ox wagon In'
1149. He spent 18 years there, in
1171 ho was chosen to bo principal
chief of the Chcrokno nation for
most prominent of the mixed blo,ods.
He was tho father of Dr. J. C. Bushy
head of claromorc.
