VintTA, Ind. Tun., June 13, 1895.
Now let us turn out nnd liavo ft
fourth of July celebration that will
astonish tlio nntlvcB.
Sam Maves will beat Bob Ross
as bad as D. V. Bushyhead beat
Chas, Thompson In 1883.
It is a dull day now whon this
town doesn't liavo some kind ol a
convention. Wo aro strictly "in
it" when it comes to politics.
Tub Champion already begins to
present tho appearanco of a punc
tured wind-bag. Even tho friends
of the old man have begun to
chucklo on tho Bly.
The general opinion is tliat the
shower of rain last Saturday was
worth moro to tho country than
tho political barbecue at Bluejackot
ropcated a thousand limes.
If John Gunter and Bill Rogers
worn nominated for tho scnato on
tho Downing ticket in this district
it would bo equivalent to their
election. They aro the two fastest
men in tho district in elthor party.
Now that tho receipt for Sntu
Mayes' cattle tax has been dug up
nnd tho statements of tho Ros3 or
gans that ho had not paid his tax
been proven to bo false, who will
bo tho first to correct tho state
ment? It is said that the reason Judge
II. T, Landrum adjourned court
last week so suddenly was not be
cause tho sheriff was killed, but
becauso the judge had imbibed too
freely and couldn't see an inch be
fore his face.
Bill Tiiott has cast his lot with
the Nationals this year. Bill has
been tho rounds of all tho parties
in tho vain hopo of getting an of
fice, but failuro has been his por
tion so far. Some how or other ho
changes unrties just at the wrong
tiino to get in.
The Cuieftain is still of the
opinion 'hat ono of the best ways
to electioneer for Sam Mayes is
simply point to tho- gang that is
rallying around Bob Ross. When
the independent, impartial and
unprejudiced voter gets a glimpso
of Ross' supporters the result of
the election can bo foretold.
It now transpires that the tragic
biblo story of Annauias doesn't
quite agreo with history inasmuch
as Annanias did not fall down and
die.and was never cairied out by
.the yqung" men and buried, hut
that he-still lives and now occupies
tho editorial chair of tho Champion
in this city. It is either this way
or history has repeated itself.
The menagerio up at tho Cham
pion ofiico are getting restless un
der fire. Stand up, boys, and take
your medicine. As long as you
were in the roll of private citizens
youenjoyed immunity from The
Chieftain's battery. Now that
you aro before the public, prepare
to have the dust kicked from the
after part of your bifurcated anat
omy. The Champion's contemptible
and abusive fling at ox-Chief
Bushyhead last week is being
roundly denounced by leading men
in both political parties. Mr.
Bushyhead has served the Chero
kee people long and well and does
not deserve any such treatment.
But the editor of tho Champion
nover had a friend that he wasn't
willing to kick.
It has taken some people a good
while to learn, hut it is pretty
generally understood throughout
the Cherokee nation now, that The
Chieftain will fearlessly denounce
wrong and that it has no pets. Tho
paper "stands pal" on its. merits
ns a newppopor,impartial and con
scientiouE, and the people have
learned to turn to it at last for
One very noticeablo feature of
tho present political campaign is
that Sam Mayes has not found it
necessary to defend his public or
private record. His business and
political actions have been audi
that they have needed no defense.
Every charge brought against him
so far has hocn of such a character
that tho public records themselves
wore all that wero necessary to
disprove them. Can ac much bo
said of his opponent?
While tho big guns of the Down
ing and tho National parties are
marshaling their hosts for tho on
set Hoolio Bull seems to bo sulk
ing in his tout. Howover, if the
Downing parly in Delaware will
Wing him tho nomination for sena
tor on a pluttor ho.won't fight Sam
Mayes quilu so hard nor so openly.
But Well has ben defeated bq of
W in his district that it has be
cmm matter of Ifltlo consequence
to Ui5ly wk9t)u-r lie runs or
Boshymkad stayed in tho flUlotl
at party as long as his solf-refcpocl
would allow him, but when tho
party nominated Bob Ross for
chiof, ho quit 'cm in disgust nnd
his action should bo imitated by
every patriot in tho party.
Fiiazkk has begun, leobly, to
spouBa the causo of tho Wliito
Adopted Citizons' causo after re
peatedly declaring that this class
of citizens had no rights to soil or
money, and should not, nor would
not he recognized as having euch
rights. All tho Cherokee boil that
Frazco claims Sb what sticks to his
brogans and furnishes tho rims of
mourning for his linger nails.
If tho political meeting held at
Bluejacket last Saturday is any
criterion, tho fewer joint" discus
sions tho Nationals cngago in up
this way tho better. Those who
liayo undertaken the herculean
task of defending Bob Ross' record
are at a very decided disadvantage
in Coowoescoowoo and Delaware,
ttoss and his honchmon begin and
end every speech with an
apology and the embarrassment of
tho position is apparont to all.
When a lechorous old reprobate
undertakes to set himsolf up as a
toacher and n leader it is time for
tho better dement of society to
speak out. Thoro is no better evi
dence of total dopravity in a mon
than an exhibition of an inordinate
desiro to parade his dissolute and
misspent lifo before an indulgent
public. When a man becomes
proud of a crooked and dissipated
career and openly boasts of his bad
record it is lima to let him drop
with a dull thud.
If the Dawes commission hopes
to accomplish anything this year it
is not indicated by anything like
activity. And it is perhaps as
well for tho commission to remain
inactivo, as tho leadors of tho fivo
tribes are determined that no
chango shall come as long as thoy
can prevent it and that whatever
congress does in tho matter will bo
done without tho co-operation of
the Indians themselves. If is a
good bluff, but how it will work
remains to be seen.
The editor of this paper views
with complacency and equanimity
the personal reflection in yester
day's "wind bag." While M.
Frazeo was a private citizen The
Chieftain could never seo its' way
clear to impalo him before the pub
lic in all his depravity, but now
ho has placed himsolf before the
world in a public capacity and we
shall lake delight in pulling the
lion's skin off him and letting the
people get a good view of him and
seo just how long his ears are.
Since accepting the editorship of
a newspaper ne nas developed a
new trait, i. o., one that was not
so conspicuous in privato life, viz:
the roll of a sneaking falsifier
tho weapon of the coward, and the
characteristic of an assassin. Of
course there arejmany things re
corded against tho old man, and
that are true, that would not be
suitablo to print that is, would
not make good Sunday school lit
erature and probably wouldn't
pass through tho mails, but we
can safely promiso the readers of
The Chieftain that at least
enough will be found each week
for n chapter or two.
THE UAMl'AltiX QPESS.
Tho political campaign opened
in earnest last Saturday at Blue
jacket. Notwithstanding the rain
in the early morning a very latge
crowd was in attendance. Botli
the candidates for chief were pres
ent, as were also the candidate for
assistant chief on each ticket, be
side many other prominent men.
Bob Ross made tho opening speech .
He came out with a whol.o hand
ful of excuses for taking tho $8,
500 grass money. Tho burden of
the speech soemed to bo a desire
to justify or explain away a little
transaction that the people insist
on talking so much about. Ross
was followed by Mr. Mayes, the
Downing candidate. Mayes stood
up and alked like a man that
knew "whore ho was at" and
didn't have any apologies to make;
had on open record, public and
private, for the inspection of all.
Mayes had the crowd with him
without doubt, as was attested by
the cheering of the people Hi

OUR COMMON DOMAIN.
Tho Council and not the Constitution
at Fault. 1
Thoro aro n million acres of
good agricultural land in the
Chorokeo nation, or, estimating
tho citizen population of tho na
tion at twenty-seven thousand,
there nro thlrty-s'ovon acies of
good land to tho head. Four-fifths
of tho Chorokeo country is ivhntls
called barren country rocky,
mountainous, dry, shallow, unpro
ductive, worthless. Now, our
mothod or form of government is
such that any citizen of tho nation
is euro of a comfortablo homo, if
ho wants it, and if tho national
council doesn't let greedy citizens
deprivo him of it by monopolizing
improvements. To say that any
man or woman docs not want a
comfortablo home to go to, would
bo to insult human nature Of
course every Chorokeo citizen
wonts ono of his -own, and so
he is as independent as any
body ' else. Now overy cit
izen is entitled to just bo
much of that million acres ns it
will tako to furnish him with that
blessing, and no more. That is to
say, tho peculiar and superlative
merit of tho constitution of tho
Cherokeo nation is this: Each
and overy citizen is designed to
have secured to him, boyond per
adventure, when ho wants it and
as long as ho wants it, enough ot
tho common domain to mako for
him, or her a homo, whero a reas
onable amount of industry will
supply everything needed for his
subsistence and comfort tho bal
anco of tho country if there
should bo any balance being
placed by tho council under such
regulations as will secure to every
owner in common his or her just
and fair proportion of whatever
benefit can bo derived from that
balance under these regulations.
With an assurnnco given them
and our Cherokeo government
givos it citizens of tho Cherokeo
nation, one and all, aro absolute
ly independent, so .'V.r a9 it is pos
sible for human beings to be, and
"ure free und equal" as anybody
or people on earth, in the sense that
Jellerson used those terms in tho
Declaration of Independence.
It is thus plain to us that tho
Constitution or form of govern
ment of tho Cherokee nation is tho
best in tho world. In tho "states,"
one wealthy person is allowed to
absorb to himself by purchaso and
by taking advantago of tho neces
sities, tho misfortunes, tho iguo
ranco or tho errors of others,
enough land to make fifty others
free and happy and leaving them
none at all.
This sort of thing is called
"holding land in severalty" and
is recommended to Cherokecs by
their white "iriends." It is de
scended from the time when kings
were supposed to own the earth
and to have in subjection to their
royal selves all the rest ot man
kind, by "divine right."
When the colonies revolted
against the despotism of -England
and Georgo III, they could prato
very finely about all men being
free and equal, but the tyranny
which allowed one man to hold a
hundred thousand acres by title
derived from the king, while a
thousand might go without, who
had nothing to buy with, was as
hard to deal with then as that
other tyranny which it look so
much blood and treasure to rem
edy about seventy five years after
wards. As luck had it, the Cherokecs
never had any backward steps to
take; no such social disease to cure,
no such abuses to rectify. When
they framed their government on
tho "free and equal' principle.they
were able to suit tho deed to the
word, to preach and practice alike,
and they recognized and acted on
the plain and simple truth that
tho earth was granted to mankind
by their Creator without respect of
persons, to laoor anu live on, anu
masmnch as its cultivation was
absolutely necessary to comfortable
existence, the right to cultivate it
to that extent was an inalienable
right, the saino as tho right to air
and to water.
Experience would have justified
tho wisdom and the foresight of
our forefathers oi the constitution,
hau it not been for tho almost in
credible remission of tho national
council for a number of years past.
Our ancestors expected when thoy
secured citizens in the right to
their improvements, that certain
greedy ones would attempt to mo
nopolize improvements. For what
reason else did they empower the
tho legislature to prevent or re
strain such monopoly by law? But
tho national council has silently
looked on while greedy citizens
have fenced and improtd a
hundred times moro of the com
mon land than they need, while
ten or a hundred citizens aro put
to the risk of eventually having
no land at all to farm and improve,
if something is not done. What is
tho matter with the council? Doei
it expect tho ureedy ones to re
strain themselves? Alas, Alas! It
just needed such folly to bring our
grand coiibtitution into contempt
when really tno contempt belongs
to the council which has failed to
do its duty. It begins to bo plain
already that unlesH monopoly of
our land by means of improve
ments is not restrained, our con
stitution is even worse than those
of the states. Already somo of our
citizens uejjln to cry "severalty"
in order to get those tights in tho
public doman that they are de
prived of by monopoly.
Tho whole fault lies with the
national council, I hey have not
dono what they wero authorized to
do, and what was expected of
them. Gentlemen, it is not too
lato yet; hut, mark, it soon will bo
As it is, thoro can bo no doubt
that your neglect has shortened

A note from 0. L. Dowell, of
this city, who is now in Mexico on
an excursion with the Travelers'
Protective association, promises
that he will make a memoranda of
tho chief incidents of his journey
and favor the readers with a des
cription ot tho trip. As there is
hardly a spot within the borders
of the Mexican republic not of in
terest to an" American, it may bo
anticipated that a rich treat is in
store. In reg.ird to tho excursion
tho I. it G. N. city passenger

allow them to spend each night in
a large city on tho routo and sleep

have, however, sleepers attached
to the train for thoso who wish
them and at tho nominal cost. Tho
trip will bo made in eight days.
The train wifl leave at seven

It Yfaa Kntled at the Close of the Toulon
At this point Ilonnparto's apprentice
years may bo said to havo ended; ho
was virtually tho man he remained to
the end. A Corslcan by origin, he tc
talncd tho national sensibility nnd an
enormous power if endurance- both
physical nnd Intellectual, together
with the dogged persistence found In
the medieval Corsica ns. Up was de
voted with primitive virtue to hie fam
ily and his people, but was willing to
sacrifice tho latter, at least, to his am
bition. His moral sense, having never
been developed by education, and,
worse than that, having been befogged
by tho extreme sensibility of Rousseau
and by tho chaos ot tho times which
that prophet had brought to pass, was
practically lacking. Neither the hos
tility of his father to religion nor his
own experience with the Jesuits could,
however, entirely eradicate a supersti
tion which passed In his mind for faith.
Sometimes ho was a scoffer, as many
with weak convictions are: but in gen
eral ho had a formal nnd outward re
spect for the church.
His theoretical education had been
narrow and one-sided; but his rending
nnd his authorship, in spite of their su
perficial and desultory character, had
given him certain large and fairly def
inite conceptions of history and pol
itics. Hut his practical education!
What a polishing and sharpening ho
had had against tho revolving world
moving many times faster then than in
most ages. Ho was a master In tho
art of civil war, for he had been not
merely an interested obsc.-vcr, but an
activo participant in it during five
years in two countries. Tho victim of
wiles moro secret than his own, ho had
crown most wily in diplomacy; an am
bitious politician,- his pulpy principles
wero republican in their character so
far as they had any tissue or firmness.
His acquisitions in tho science of war
were substantial and definite. Ncithor
n martinet himself nor tolerant in any
way of routine, Ignorant in fact of
many hateful details, among others of
obedience, he yet rose far above tradi
tion or practice in his conception of
strategy. Ho was perceptibly superior
to tho world about him In almost overy
aptitude, and particularly so In power
of combination, in originality, and in
far-sightedness. He could neither
write nor spell correctly, but ho was
skilled in all practical applications of
mathematics; town and country, moun
tains and plains, seas and rivers, wero
all quantities in his equations. Un
trustworthy of himself, he strove to
arouse trust, faith and devotion in
those about him; and concealing suc
cessfully his own purpose, ho read tho
hearts of others liko an open book.
Of pure minded affection for either
men or women ho had so far shown
only a little, and had experienced In
return even less; but ho had studied
tho arts of -gallantry, and understood
tho leverage of social forces. To these
capacities, somo embryonic, some per
fectly formed, ndd the fact that he was
now a cosmopolitan, and there will be
outline, relief, and color to his char
acter. "I am in that frame of mind,"
he said of himself about this time, "in
which men aro on the ere of battle,
with a persistent conviction that since
death is Imminent in the end, to be un
easy is folly. Everything makes mo
brave death and destiny; and if this
goes on, I shall In tho end, tny friend,
no longer turn when a carriage passes.
My reason is sometimes astonished at
(til this; but It is the effect produced on
mo by the moral spectacle of this land
(co pays-ol, notpatrie), and by tho habit
of running risks." This Is the power
und tho temper of a man of whoro an
intimate and confidential friend pre
dicted that ho would never stop short
until ho had mounted either the throne
or the scaffold. l'rof. W. M. Sloane, in
