Th eke are a good iniiiiy liuppy democrat in Vinita tins week, The mineral law will probably receive some attention aj;ain this council. Taiilko.uah was well tilled with visitors and members as early na Sunday. The destiny of a town is to a great extent in the hands of its inhabitants. Let's huHtlti. Vkky complete reports of the election will be found upon the outride pages of tliia paper. Wouldn't it be funny if the present council should perform its duties and adjourn in thirty days. Ill Landkum is among the pros pective candidates for chief, at the next election. "The early liird," etc. The next bill passed by congress in relation to the judicial fcvsttin of the territory will put a court at Vinita. The Missouri Pacific railway company is gathering statistics of this territory to be embraced in a pumphlet soon to be issued. It is to be hoped that a little more news will be injected into our state exchanges after this week, taking the place of so mucli gush "Maj. Pkabody, the aflablo and amiable," runs an item in a Tahle quah paper, "is in the city." How much is it? Let's know the price of affability and amiability. If any one comes around the present council asking it to receive six or seven thousand dollars and convert the same into the treasury it is hoped that body will gracious ly consent. A recent attempt was made to get "backing" for starting a third paper in this town. That "long felt want" is pretty well supplied. Tahlequah might stand another paper or two. The prediction is frequently ventured that at next general elec tion every male person over 21 years of age residing in this terri tory will be a qualified voter. It's all guesswork. Will the senatorial committee when it comes out next week get its information of those w ho aie on the nation's pay roll and insit-t that "we are all right," or will they hear the people, who know that we are all wrong? Very little can be done in the way of curbing monopoly until a survey of the land and an official count of the people is had not a hap-hazzard census, but a count which the government will accept. That is the only one which will dispose of the intruders. Exper ience has shown that we have ample authority and power to ad mit as many persons as we see fit to Cherokee citizenship. And the same expensive teacher has shown that we have not power to remove or keep out arybody. This is one of the poorest of "poor rules that won't work both ways." OUR TAHLEQUAH LETTER. Council Proceedings and Other Mews in the Capital. luinjr MoiiMKu, Not. 8, lm. Tahlequah is full to overflowing. The generous residents of the city have thrown open 'their doors in order that the members and many visitors may be accommodated, as the hotel capacity is not sufficient for the occasion. Owing to the wreck on the M., K. & T., a num ber of the members from Coowee coowee and Delaware did not get in until Monday evening; Presi derit Buflington, of the senate, was among the number. Up to date nothing has been done; the two houses met Monday morning with a quorum in the lower house but not in the nenate; Hon. Daniel Redbird was elected president, pro tem,ot the senate in the absence of Mr. Bufiington. A report has been current that a bill would be introduced to move the capital to Ft. Gibson, as the old government building would probably be turned over to the na tion. 8mne of the members claim that live districts, Cooweescoowee, Delaware, Illinois, Canadian and Sequoyah would favor it. Mem bers from those districts are hav ing considerable fun over the re port, jokir.g the citizens of Tahle quah who are fearful that there is a good deal of truth in it; it is rather dry fun fur Tahlequah mer chants. .Senator Key mpgefts that the capital must either Le moved to the railroad or the rail road to the capital. It is not yet generally known when Chief Harris will deliver his tae.-nge, jrhaps to-day or to morrow. One member suggests that the chief ought to do away with the old custom of waiting un til Wednesday to deliver his ines sage, and have it on Monday alter noon, so that the council could go to work immediately. Why not? LEGISLATION TALK. A number ot important bills are to be introduced; prominent among tin in are about six on tlio monop oly of the public domain. Several members have bills of their own, so when one is killed another will ba put in to follow its predecessor to the burying ground. The Adair measure seems to have con siderable support, but the forty acre amendment is objectionable to many. Some favor running it off into sections at our own expenBe and letting all have 80 or 1G0 acres, while others favor allotment straight out. The eolons are all puzzled to know exactly what is best. The party prejudice that existed last council seems to be almost eliminated and the general desire among them is to "do some thing for their country." THE EDUCATIONAL END. J. W. Duncan's proposed school bill is meeting pretty general ap probation. The following are a few of its provisions, in brief: Wherever there is a school house built and as many as three citizen families for directors, a school may be established; the directors elect their teacher and discharge if not satisfactory; the nation pays each of its children (or rather the teacher) 81.25 per month; the legally resident whites go by pay ing the same; the commissioner of education to issue 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade certificates to those who are competent to teach, and a pro vision for allowing the principal teacher of schools like Vinita and Tahlequah a higher salary. The bill relates only to the primary schools. There is some talk of reestablishing the board of educa tion. THE STRIP. Interest on this subject is not lagging at all, since it is one of dol lars and cents in the people's pockets. A great many are very sorrowful now that we didn't all, or as many of us as wanted it, get an 80 acres as well as ' the 70" chosen ones. Others wonder if we can't get it changed and yet secure a piece of the coveted land. One man says, "why, if I just had 80 acres along side of one of those towns that will spring up like Oklahoma City or Guthrie, I would get from two to three thousand dollars for it alone." All are de termined that the Watts outfit shall not have a dollar of it, and if the United States senate com mittee insists upon us paying the intruders for their improvements, they had just as well retrace their steps for Washington. Applicants for citizenship are here by no small majority. Some of them look like "Injuns;" some don't. The "some don't" are in the ma jority. THE ELECTRIC RAILWAY. The bill for its charter or right of way from Tahlequah to Ft. Gib son is actually being drawn. Two weeks ago the idea of such a road was almost hooted at, and is yet by some, but Mrs. Morgner and others are pushing the wheels that may start the electric cars to roll ing over to Gibson before another council meets. Quite a number think that an electric road termi nating here would be better for Tahlequah than a steam one pass ing on through, since the latter of tentimes kill a town instead of making it, by building up others on either side. It is proposed that the fare from Gibson will be reduced about fifty cents, and that the company may in conjunction with the generating engine have an electric iignt attachment lor Tahlequah and the seminaries. If electric light for these institutions can be furnished as cheaply as oil, and it ought to be, it Would be quite an improvement, and an agreeable one for the boys and girls. THE CHIEF'S MESSAGE. Soma of The Salient Points And Suggestion. After reviewing the ravages of Death during the past year, in our nation, and the condition in which our people find themselves, mater ially, the chief expresses the con viction that tre haye much to be grateful for. The defect discovered in our jury law is first considered, and the urgent necessity of altering it so as to conform to the constitu tion of the United States making it twelve instead of six is pointed out. The land question is next dis cussed, and in this discussion straight anti-allotment ground is taken, and it is declared that the land in severalty plan would he the destruction ot the nation and of the happiness of its people. The condition or the masses in the United States is pointed out as an example of what we should see here. The Cherokee (vstem breeds no millionaire, no land sytidiaaUm, no mortgage sharks. Land is not degr ajfd. to the level of speculation. Of the tax fystem, of which com alaint is made, the chief says: To 0y jjiinil the wisest rvToviuinnii f made by our fathers for their ioh terilv. win the dedication of the use only id' the lands and the in terest on the invested fundi to each succeeding generation. Monopoly could and should be largely curtailed by restricting permitted laboi to a given number of improvements to each adult. In this manner the leaser could ho disposed ot. A reasonable wire lence law is suggested. The monopoly of town lots hav ing reached immense proportions, and it being evident they are bought for speculation and not for occupancy it is suggested that a minimum price bu established and certain valuable improvements be demanded as a condition to the sale. It is further advised that a provision be made for laying oil towns on the K. & A. V. railroad, and that improvements made prior to the building of this line, when used as town sites, be paid for. Complaint and dissatisfaction being rife over the existing stock law and because the various acts appear to conflict and thus render them inoperative, their repeal is recommended and the enactment of a plain and simple law, fixing the time of introduction, provid ing for the speedy and certain col lection of the revenue, and pun ishment through the courts for its violation without confiscation of, or arbitrary seizure of the stock inlrod need. A list ol over 5, UK) names of in truders has lately been sent to the president with request lor removal lv him; I am advised they were sent to the interior department. The conditions attaching to, ami recommended in the report ot the senate committee, to whom referred the agreement for the sale of the lands west of the iNith mer idian, are so at variance with the acts, in the hntuiy f these in truders, and so manifestly unjust to the Cherokee people, that 1 do not for a moment believe that they will be acceded to on your part, if thev are made a condition to the sale of these lands. We have not been anxious to sell these lands and we have known that so far as the money consideration is con cerned, we were not gelling a tythe of their value, but as our tenants ind b'-en ejected and we were un justly, and uselessly deprived of the revenue derived from the graz ing thereon, and were constantly importuned and harmed by the government of the United States for their sale and our etlorts to have the intruders removed hav ing proved fruitless, we finally agreed to the sale, with the hope that our country would be freed iroin these pests, and t lie jurisdic tion of our courts over our citizens be more firmly settled. The mon ey was the least of these consider ations. If congress should decline to accept and ratify the agreement for the sale of these lands in its entirety, it will bo necessary to take steps to remove the intruders by national authority. We have exhausted very effort to have the government of the United States comply w ith its treaty obligations without avail. That there be no further excuse for delay, I advise that you authorize the principal chief to issue a proclamation, warning these people not to put in crops the coming season, and to depart the country in peace with their personal effects and author izing him in case of the refusal of any of them so to do, to organize a force sufficient to eject them. Our schools, I am glad to say, gem rally are in a reasonable de gree flourishing. The plan of ac cepting payment of board at the seminaries in national tickets should be abolished and cash de manded, as cash is required to purchase the supplies, to the end that these institutions, so far as possible, be made self supporting. From the allowance of ? jU a mile for right of way and $15 a mile an nual rental S1!),0J1.21 have been received. It is recommended that enough ol this to liquidate the in debtedness of the school fund be devoted to that purpose and that hereafter the annual rental be converted to that fund. The public debt is as follows: Tli" "ntataitdina; warraitU on Hit. itpttrral fuii(l,rt.mitiii!!ig unpaid, amount tu S-'hool lnil'1 - III. (..''(.'"

To reduce this expenditure now and hereafter, it is suggeted that the expanses of council, pay of members and other officers and the pay of jurors be cut down; that all persons charged with crime, who do not give bond, be com mitted to the national jail to await trial. The repeal ot the revenue collector law is recommended and that it be placed again in the hands of the clerks without addi tional expense. It is also recommended that the supreme judges be relieved of the criminal jurisdiction now exercised by them, and that this jurisdiction be given to the circuit courts, and the jurisdiction of the district court be enlarged, so as to equalize the labors of the circuit and district courts, and that appeals under necessary restrictions he granted from the circuit and district courts to the puprenie court.

RESOLUTIONS 4 AND 0. A Retraotlou Demanded Broadside Promised. or Mh. Kuitoh: In continuing the discussion of the Vinita resolu tions, I propose to put ex-Senator Bell on the dissecting table US the subject of my next article unless he comes out in your next issue with an ample apology for calling the authors of those resolutions traitors; we demand a retraction of the language in his Claremore speech, and unless this is forth coming we shall turn our battery loose on him in your next issue As the ex-senator is a lawyer and understands the force and power of language we presume that he meant what he said and said what he meant. If not, then an apology is in order. We had always rather say something good of a man than anything bad; soft words turn away wrath. o pass to the consider ation of tbe 4 1 ll and 5th resolutions id the Vinita series: We are in the most anomalous condition of any nation on earth. We are now paying about 210, (KX) taxes to the general government without having a word to say about its disposition. We are taxed w ithout our consent ; we have paid in the last twenty years not less than g.VKl.tHK) to the United Stales government, to say nothing of the taxes to our own govern ment. But whose fault is it? All our own. It is not Hie l.iult ol the United Slate,, government; it is not the fault of our forefathers, for they provided by treaty stipu lation for your representation on the floor of contM'cHS. The United States have wooed and beseeehed you for fifty. seven years to lake your place in the American con gress in order that your rights might be better protected, but you have spurned your rights and re jected the teaching of your fore fathers, ami have suffered your- selves to be taxed without repre sentation and have spent millions of dollars to keep from doing what your forefathers provided you should do, by sacred treaty stipu lations. 'Your Kosses, your Adairs, your Boudinots, your Benges, would have adorned a seat in the halls of legislation, but you have recklessly thrown away your op portunities and sold your birth right for a mess of pottage. It is said Unit "the mills of the gods grind slowly but they grind ex ceeding fine," and "Whom the gods would destroy they (irt make mad." Let us then arouss from our lethergy and avert the male diction of high heaven for failing to take advantage of our opportun ities; let us not be taxed without representation. There are other interests outside your own that demand it; there are more while people in the territ.rv than In dians; their interest demands it; our interest demands it, and if we do not move in that direction they will. This territory cannot exist in lhe very heart of the United States in the very gateway of commerce, with a population of over ;i(K),(HH, with all their multi plied interests without represen tation in congress. We must have it; we cannot get along without it. Our judicial system is un outrage; we are denied the rilit of trial by a jury of the v'iunage; in criminal matters our citizens are transported beyond our jurisdiction and tried by juries ol our neighboring states for alleged offenses; these tilings ought not to be. It is a reflection upon our intelligence and advance ment in civilization that it is so. Mure anon, Nkd Bcnti.in. Panning- Away. Referring to the decline in thy western ranges, the Drovers' Jour nal says: "As the inarch of empire takes its way westward the prairies and plains of the great west that were once the boast of American pioneers are gradually converted into farms It has been buteom-.i paratively few years since buffalo es, in herds of teousand, routed these beautiful lands unnio'ested and unconfined by limitations of civilization. Now this proud spe cimen of the Western plain has passed away before the ceaseless tide of emigration, and in its stead herd of domestic cattle are reared to feed the hungry millions. But how long will these great fertile lands be open to the ranchman is a question which is begining to as sume a serious aspect. The en croachment of the agriculturist has already cut down this vast art a, and what a few years ago was a boundless prairie where cattle were grazed without reference to territory, is now a series of ranch es are being rapidly converted in tillable land, so that the possib ility of an extencive herd is fast becoming a serious problem. I he day seems not very far distant when the range steer will have to give place to the more domesticat ed cornfed beef. Political Pealm.

A regular staire line has been established from Flagstaff, Ariz , on the Atlantic it Pacific railroad, making the trip from Flagstall' to the most imposing part of the Can on in less than 1 hours. The stage fare for the round trip is only g!iU.(K, and meals and comfortable lodgings are provided throughout the trip at a reasonable price. The view ol the iirand Canon allorued at the terminus ol the stage route is the most stupendous pamoramu known in nature. There is also a trail at this point leading down the Canon wall, more than (llRHi feet vertically, to the river below. The descent of the trail is a grand er experience than climbing the Alps, for in the bottom of this ter rific and siildinie chasm are hun dreds of mountains greater than any of the Alpine range.
