Tns Ciueitaik sorely regrets
tho domiso of tho Arrow. There
is nothing liko opposition or criti
cism to mako a lcllow lively and
causo him to guard against errors
of his own making, or extravagance
of opinion. Tho Telcphono will
certainly miss its usual discussion
and tho oxerciso of kicking back.
Maj. Wallace has been delayed
in his work of preparing rolls of
claimants, precedent to tho 875,
000 distribution among tho Dela
warcs, Bhawnecs and frccdmen, by
having copies made of the authen
ticated rolls, in which at- enrolled
ouch freedmen as havo been ad
mitted to Cherokee rights by the
authorities, and of the roll of the
Shawnccs incorporated with the
fllicrokccs. Ho will begin his
work at Vinita.
Special Commissioner Wal
lacx will tako evidenco in sup
port of the claims of tho Dela
wares, Shawnocs and Cherokee
frccdmen to Cherokeo citizenship,
by reason of tho compacts between
the former and tho Cherokeo na
tion, and bv reason of treaty between
tho United Statos and Cherokeo na
tion, in relation to tho latter. If
found to bo Cherokeo citizens by
reason of sufficient evidenco, they
aro r, nscquently entitled to a
itharo or the 975,000. This is a
plain proposition. But when?
"TOO DEAD TO SKIN."
Judgo Wilson, of tho commis
sion to treat with the Chorokccs
for tho cession of their lands to
the United States, is quoted as
having said that a bargain would
eoon bo effected for that purpose,
as an old law had been discovered
which had already authorized
Ho refers, no doubt, (as there is
no other that can in any manner
be construed to mean such a thing,)
to a section of the instructions of
tho delegation in 1881. If there
ever was a cunningly devised hole
to go in ai, and anothor to crawl
outat,through authority deceitfully
and maliciously devisod and se
cured, that section takes tho cake.
It can be construed to mean al
most anything from a sale of lands
already accomplished by soino un
known and unheard of transaction
or agreement between tho United
Stales and the Chorokco nation,
clear down to no sale at nil, in
cluding all the lands west of the
Arkansas river or none nt all, or
just so much aa had been settled
upon by the Pawnees, Ponca and
others. Only ono item in this
section of tho instructions was car
ried out, and that was to secure to
the Cherokee nation, as the exclu
sive property of the Cherokeo na
tion, the saline deposits out there.
It will bo remembered that these
were, under the treaty of 1S35,
left to tho frco use of all tribes of
Indiana who might wisli to get
salt at tliem. Thi3 being the case,
the Cherokeo nation could not
leaso them without interfering
with this privilege. Hence this
item of tho delegation's intruo
tions. Put wlutcver moaning or stress
one may upon this section, it ceas
ed to bo law or of any legal forco
or e fleet after congress had ad
journed and tho delegation had re
turned. In only on exception
could the instructions havo been
of any valid use, and that in cibo
congress had bcon convened in ex
Every soparato delegation re
celves, by an art of congress, their
instructions, and havo no right to
oxerciso tho authority given in
tho instructions to any former
So, if Judgo Wilson had rofer
onco to whatwero tho inductions'
of a delegation, ho depends for
what ho sayd upon something "too
dead to skin."
THH FEMALE HIGH SCHOOL
Tis pleasant to step nsido from
tho Warm and dusty higlnruye of
publio life and of political bickor
ings, and rest In tho cool shade
and retirement of its moro peace
ful aspects. A restful Sabbath it
Is, a light through a rift of unsat
isfied conditions, wlicro one may
forget for awhile tho worry of ro
sponsibilllios, to enjoy a scene
full of prophecy nud promise.
Just such a place and ocoasian
ran bo found nt our nev femalo
hih school at Tahlcquah, Ap
proachiiijj ft from the jvt., you
aro attracted by its seemingly
great length, and combination of
architectural variety. A substan
tial iron fchto with n largo gate
w ay spanned by an arched frainp
work of iroh, ornamented with
gilt letters spelling "Cherokeo
Femalo Seminary," and a wicket
just to tho right, inclosri tho spa
cious ground and building. .Mr.
8. S. Stephens, superintendent,
has sinco his appolntmont, been
busily engaged in having tho
groat quantity of debris removed
from tho premised and ornament
ing tho ground, with lundscapo
gardening. Had ho tho means
nud opportunity to carry out his
plans, tho entiro premises would
bo arranged with no ordinary skill
Springs of cool nnd fresh wa
tors gush out in many places just
undor tho easy ascent to tho build
ing, where water wagons and town
folks docongrcgato morning and
evening, and tho seminary girls
with pitchers come for cool drink
ing water, accompanied by a teach
er or matron. Tho sominary
spring is enclosed ngainBt the
public by v I'o'llsz fence, as there
aro amplo accommodations and
other springs to supply all on tho
outside with cool, fresh water.
You enter the building through
an arched way into tho vestibnle,
and through another into a long
corridor running tho entire length
of tho building. On tho first iloor
aro tho chapel, tho class, music,
library, dining and store rooms,
and tho office of tho superintend
ent. The upper floors aro divided
off into neat and comfortablo bed
rooms. The building throughout
is supplied witli all tho modern
covcnienccs for wanning and ven
tilating it and supplying it with
You forget to consider these
things in tho presence of troops of
fun-loving girls prominading tho
corridors, pouring up and down
tho stair ways, or standing and
chatting in groups, should you
happen to make a visit there while
tho school ia at recess. During
school hours tho socne is quite
different. Tho great building is
then orderly and quiet. All arc
occupied and thcro is no room for
unnecessary noise. Tho sound of
the piano may be heard from tho
music room, ns the fingers of somo
student flit over tho keys.
Willi such a beginning and un
der such auspices there is no room
to doubt tho great good tho school
is able to accomplish. With Miss
Florence Wilson, whom every
body of the nation knows as being
amply qualified by learning and
experience to fill tho position '
principal teacher and govern.--,
little or no doubt can be entertain
ed as to the bos-t possible results.
Her assistants, Misses Jessie Lieb,
Moo Duncan, Mary Church and
Sallic Morris make up a
good selection of teachers. Miss
Flossie Stephens, tho teacher of
instrumental and vocal music,
with Missl.icbas assistant, can,
as they certainly qualify, fulfill all
the requirements of tho musical
department. Miss Stephens in
well known as a splcnd id vocalist
and performer on the piano.
Ciivcthcma fair chance, is all
that is asked.
THE 87G.OOO PAYMENT.
Has any of tho Cherokees stop
ped to consider whether the 875,
000 payment now about to bo made
to tho adopted citizous is legal,
and is It to bo paid out without
protest from Chief Mayes? The
payment is certainly duo to the
adopted citizen, but by what right
dors tho United States govern
ment attempt to pay this exact
amount to the adopted citizens to
make good all who was left off the
rolls in tho payment of 1883,
amounting to $10.50 per capita?
They order their commissioner
to como hero and pay out this ex
act sum to cover th.it payment.
Now why 875,000? It may pay
(30.03 per head, or it may not
amount to moro than $5.00 por
head, but it should bo exactly
816.50 per head. It Chief Mayes
allows this payment to bo made
under tho act.of the United States
government providing for it, with
out any protest, I think it will be
the rope, politically, that his enc
mios havo prepared for him to
hang himself with. This is not
all the illegal features connected
with this act of congress providing
for this payment und the method
of its being paid. This pay
ment to be legal, must bo ex
actly 810.60 or nothing, as it is
mado to correct a mistake of leav
ing thoso who wcro born nt tho
date of tho 1883 payment off tho
rolls. The United Slates govern
ment has certainly been duped in
to a very great error ns to how it
shall, bo paid, nnd tho exact
amount, to right tho adopted
Euitor Chieftain: As tho con
dition of tho lands west of 00 is
ono of tho vital issues of tho day,
and un issue in whicl) every citizen
of tho Cherokoo nation should be
nliko interested, I propose to set
forth my humble views nnd invito
discussivn upon (he matter.
To-day I say, under existing cir
cumstances tho best tiling that
could bo dono would bo to sell
thoso woslerrt lands. In the his
tory of this nation thcro has nov
er boon tho pressuro and influonco
brought to bear that thoro is now,
nor has tho demand over boon
mado before, that is and will bo
mado from now on for these lands.
I do not believe tho federal gov
ernment will over consent for the
nation to sell thoso lands to any
prlvalo individual or corporation,
from tho fact that according to tho
treaty of '00 It is n party intcrost
cd in tho salo of thoso lands to tho
cxtbnt that when tho nation pro
poses a sale to any other than tho
government, it will interposo its
strong arm, and effectively check
any such salo, which it consistent
ly can do. Had thcro bcon no
treaty stipulation to' scttlo friendly
Indians on tho lands, and did tho
government not havo what wo con
sider n kind of n "lion" upon
them, we would think it wisdom
for the nation to insist upon sell
ing to whom it pleases.
Tho commission proposo to givo
$1.25 nn aero for that land, based
upon its entire ncrcago, leas tho
amount the nation has already re
ceived. They claim tho nation
has received a littlo moro than
8720,000. What if the. govern
ment should conclude to scttlo that
country up with Indians, accord
ing to treaty? It could, with the
greatest propriety, givo to tho
Cherokee nation 47.49 cents por
aero and locate ten or twenty
thousand Indians out there.
If thcro is any po'tlblo chanco
to obtain moro titan 81.25 per acre
for It I favor it, but I nm not able
to sec how it can bo done. There
aro ono or two instances in which
tho government gave moro than
her regular government prico for
land, but they were far difforcnt
from this one, and then by special
congressional action. Wo have a
title to thoso lands but it is an im
paired title, and an imperfect ono,
and tho nation's juridiction and
possession will tcrminato tho mo
ment tho government chooos to
settle or fill it up with Indians.
I know it is not popular to favor a
disposition of any of tho lands
west of 00, but the crisis is at hand
and wo should discard popularity
and take advantage of tho propo
sition of the government.
Another matter is the pecuniary
advantage to be derived from a
sale of thoso lands. The govern
ment would give the nation Home
tiling near eight million dollars for
them, and that divided up among
all her citizens would givu them a
iicc little amount of money to fur
ther improvo their farms, or do
whatever thoy plcasod with it.
It would take more than fifteen
years to receive tho samo amount
of money under a fifteen year
Sell or not soil, is a question
that should be thoroughly discuss
cd between now and council time,
when tho commissioners will re
turn and renew their proposition
to tho nation. There is no possi
ble way for this nation to cvado
the issuo either by prolonging the
sale or referring the matter for set
tlement to somo future d.iy. If
thoso lands wcro immediately
sold, n portion of the money could
be used towards building school
houses which would be more com
fortablo than tho ones wo now
have, and a great many other im
provements needed, if tho pcoplo
desired it. If tho amount was de
posited at 5 per cent, interest, It
would give us an annual income of
four hundred thousand dollars,
which is two hundred thousaud
dollars per year more than wo aro
now receiving under tho present
What say you Cherokeo Etalcs
men, what say you Cherokee citi
zens, in regard to tho proper dis
position of our western lands?
Shall wo take 81.25 per acre upon
tho governments proposition, or
tho pitiful amount of 47.40 cents
an acre, according to treaty stipu
lations? All answer at once.
