Ter., Ji nk 30, 1 802 When the intruders are removed from the Cherokee Nation will Boino tinti-allotment inun pleuso toll us how to keep them out? Ir you wish to know anything nbout the affairs of this nation write to W. A. Phillips, the at torney for the Cherokees, in Wash. ington. A wu. lias been introdued in the United States senate providing that the president shall appoint two commissioners for the Colum bian exposition from the five civ ilized tribes. The Oklahoma Press Association meets in Guthrie, July the 12tli Ihe fraternity of that city are making grand preparations for a royal time. Speeches by Gov Seay, Judge Green and Hon. Hor ace Speed are a part or the pro grain. There has been nothing said latelv touching the title to the Strip that question has been set tled. The Cherokees own the Strip and it Is very valuable. The gov eriiment will buy it and as one of the conditions of the trade will remove the intruders. The Cher okee will point out the intruders ; they know them. A few days ago a company of young gentlemen (Cherokees) took a trip through the western part of Cooweescoowee district in search of public domain on which to make homes, but they report that they were unable to find any unclaimed land suitable for farming purposes They passed many fine farms ol thousands of acres, and in one in stance they found one man claim ing twenty-three farms. This is "a condition and not a theory, that con Iron ts the Cherokee peo ple, and is a strong and it would seem sufficient argument to con vince any one that some change is necessary in the land tenure of this country. Those who oppose any change in our present system should take into consideration the fact that even now it would be ut- terly impossible for one-fourth of the children under age to get homes. It is now high time that the poorer classes of citizens were awakening to a realization of the true state of things. A BLOW AT WIRE FENCING. Only 60 Aorea May be bo Enclos ed For Any Purpose. At the special term of the circuit court in and for Cooweescoowee district, U. N., June 23, 1892. In the matter of a motion filed by the sheriff of Cooweescoowee district to set aside a writ of in junction issued by this court bear ing date May 25, 18'J2, based upon the application and affidavits of W. L. Wilder, J. M, Keys and C. Ilayden, praying that this writ do issue, restraining said sheriff of Cooweescoowee district from cut ting down the wire fencing of affi ants, on the grounds that said en closures are made of post and wire, and that the intention in making such enclosures was to make farms for cultivation. After a hearing and examination of the records in the case it ap pears that the plaintiffs have not claimed that the enclosures of land in question are not such as are re quired by law to be cut down; but it appears from their affidavits that the enclosures are such as are required to be cut by the law found in act approved Dec. 9, 1882, entitled "An Act to Prevent Monopoly of the Public Domain." It will be found in second section of the preamble to said act that it was the intention of the legisla ture in enacting this law to make it apply to all enclosures "of large bodies of land for whatever pur pose" such enclosures may have been made. The court holds that these pro visions me (sweeping in tneir terms; excepting no enclosures of land .made of posts and wire, only cucli as are provided for in the second flection ol said law, approved Dec. y, 1882, wherein it is provided "that from and after the passage of this act, it shall not be lawful for any person to hold, lor the pur pose of grazing, a greater quantity of land than lifty acres attached to the farm owned or occupied by fiich person, he being a citizen of the Cherokee nation." The court further rules that in accord with this provision a person may hold as much as fifty acres, but no more, with post and wire fence; and enclosures embracing more than fifty acres made of the same material, are unlawful, re gardless of the purpose for which they might hive been made, and are required to be "removed." As to the equities at law that that have been urged, the court rules that it has no authority to pass upon the equities in the cft!-e, and neither has it the author ity to pass upon the constitution ality of the said law requiring the removal of poft and wire fences. These lntter questions will have to be disposed of by the Supreme Court, as that is the only tribunal clothed with the powers to enter tain and pass upon sutli questions. The motion is therefore sus tained and the writ of injunction is hereby dissolved. II. T. LAMDEfM. Judge Northern Jad. Ct., C. N. SUB-COMMITTEE REPORT. Extract From Cherokee Oommlu sloner Sayre'n Statement. Iiy Mr. II. II. Hubbard, ( rep resenting t he Cherokee Clti.eiiohi association"): Q. You mention this Citizenship association; do you know anything personally in regard to thai mny of people or Cherokees. as thev are called? A. No. sir: not as body, I am personally acquainted with several of the persons who claim to be members of the Citizen ship association. O. The statement you have made here, il 1 understand you correctly, is derived from inlor mation you have received whih you were in the Indian Territory? A. Largely lrom information. Q. Was that information prin tipally from Cherokees who were recognized citizens and authorities of the Cherokee nation? A. The information was principally de rived from persons in authority in tho Cherokee nation and persons recognized as Cherokees by Cher okee authority; and some of tho information was obtained from persons who are denominated in truders. Q. Can you say whether those persons have had a fair and im partial trial or not A. 1 never saw the court in session and never saw the record of the court. (). Now. vou nronose. under this first article, that these people shall be evicted as intruders upon the demand of the principal chief of the Cherokee nation? A. Yes. (J. Would that include persons that have never had any trial in the Cherokee nation and who are there? A. It includes every per son who does not come within tho classes that are exempt under the provisions of that article. Uy .senator rlalt: Q. As I understand by this arti cle, the persons to be ejected are those not recognized as citizens of the Cherokee nation by the consti tuted authorities thereof; before anybody can be taken I suppose it must be established that he was not recognized as a citizen of the nation bv the authorities thereof. That is a preliminary question be fore you eject a man? A. Cer tainly. By Mr. Hubbard: Q. l)o you consider that the constitution of the Cherokee na tion is one of the "constituted au thorities of the Cherokee nation," or what are the "constituted au thorities of the Cherokee nation?" A. I have to say, right there, that I did not write that part of the contract; but adopted the language that was insisted upon by the Cherokees. The question canio up there as to what were the con stituted authorities; and it was concluded that the constituted au thorities were those that were in authority under the constitution and laws of the Cherokee nation. By Senator Piatt: Q. Was there any hearing be fore your commission given to per sons who were called intruders No, sir; and there were no ap plications by anybody to be heard, that I now recall. Q. Where were these negotia tions held? A. I hey were held in the supreme court room ut fahlequah, and the negotiations resulting in this agreement were largely open to the public, that is, many persons besides the com missioners were there at different times. Q. How long did the negotia tions continue? A. Ihcy confin ed from about the 17th of Novem ber last until probably the 17th of December one month. Q. How far did this body, the Watts family, reside from 'fahle quah? A. They were probably lifty miles from Tahlequafi. Iiy Mr. Hubbard: Q. How is it to be determined who are intruders and who are not? . I suppose that when the prin cipal chief would make a demand tpon the executive department of the government to remove an in truder the executive department would ascertain in its own way whether he was a recognized cit izen ol the Cherokee nation; would iscertain whether he came within iny of these exemptions; whether he person was in the employment if any railroad or telegraph com pany; or whether he was there as missionary; or whether he was there under the provisions of any law of the United States or any law of the Cherokee nation, or of my of the treaties between the Cherokees and the United States; ind when satisfied of the fact that le did not come within any of these provisions he would be or- lered to go, and 1 suppose fie would go. (I. I nat would necessitate, then, wine further legislation or some plan by which this fact, of these people being intruder or other wise, could be determined? A. Vell, I should think there was nothing for the executive depart ment to do except to ascertain ihose facts whether he came with in any of the inhibitions of the contract.. By Senator Piatt: Q. There would be this to be as certained, as a matter of fact, whether he was recognized by the constituted authorities of the Cher okee nation? A. Yec, sir; that would be a question, and whether the person was within the territory under any law of the United States or any treaty with ihe United Mates. By Mr. Hubbard: 'i- Suppose that he was there under a treaty with the United .states, then wfio should settle that the principal chief, or who? A. Too executive department of the United States government. The treatiee of the United Stales with the various Indian tribes provide, without any particular legislation n the subject, that persons shall be expelled by the United States authority from Indian reservations. That is a power that has been ex ercised every day almost, in iny presence, within the last sixty days, by the agent in charge. i). As a matter of f art, thru, the United States retains the right over the question of iutruderlup; is that your understanding? A. That article is meant, and 1 think stales, that the Cherokees have tho right tu determine- their own citizenship; and if tho constituted authorities of tho Cherokee- nation say that you are not a citizen of tho Cherokee nation, thai your name does not appear upon any of their authenticated rolls, or that you are not a descendant of a Cher okee, that determines that ques tion,. Q. Is that your view, or the Cherokee view? A. That is my view. I was stating it as my view. By Senator Plait: Q. Would not u question arise, in case where application has been made but not acted upon, as to wluther the applicant was an in truder or not? A. 1 think he would bo an intruder up to the time the question is acted upon. By Mr. Hubbard: Q. Whether ho had a trial or not? A. Yes, sir; I do not think that the constitution and laws of tho Cherokeo nation, or tho laws of tho United States, give to any man a trial a u matter of right, whether he is a Cherokee or not. A man may bo a Cherokee by blood, and still bo refused citizen ship in the Cherokeo nation. Bv Senator Piatt: Q. Vou think that, before a man plants himself on the land of the nation or insists upon his right to enter or remain there, ho must fust get the permission of the Chero- okee nation upon tho ground that ho is a Cherokeo by descent? A. He must be readmitted to citi zenship before ho can acquire any rights positively. By Mr. Hubbard: Q. i)o you know what a Chero kee is how the constitution of the Cherokee nation defines a Chero kee? A. I have read the consti tution of the Cherokeo nation, but I do not know that 1 can repeat the language. Q. Is it not your understanding that some of these so-called in truders have been there for twenty years or more? A. I understand that they began coming perhaps more then twenty years ago. O. 1 would like to know how you, as a lawyer, can say, under the decision of the supreme court in the North Carolina case in 18S.j, that that decision applies to those people who have been there for twenty years? A. ihat decision, as 1 understand it, says that a per son who has been absent from the icrokeo nation, even it he is a Cherokee, is not entitled to all the privileges of citizenship of the Cherokee nation unless ho returns and memorializes the national council and is readmitted to citi zenship; without that he is not a citizen. No matter when he went there, if he had ever been absent from the Cherokee nation, that af firmative action had to be had in his favor. The Cherokee nation is not required to prove that a man is not a citizen, but the burden of proof of citizenship is on the ap plicant for citizenship. CATTLEMEN'S PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION.
