The Cherokees will vole on the

grots on the 7th day of August,
1002, and aa tho election draws

men, some of the full bloods, and
excesslvo land holders, and on the
ether side leaser land holders and
.tho progressive element. Many of
tho largo land holders and full
bloods, however, are in favor of
the treaty. Tho report pf the
; United Slates surveyor shows that

Cherokeea have 4,420,070 13 ncres

Tnt8 shows thai when the Cb"r
okee roll ia completed there will
cot be leu than 38,600 citizens en-
Willed to allotments in (hie land.
Tho roll may roach iorty thousand
people, thus it will be seen that
I by giving each citizen land equal
' in value to one hundred and ten
ceres of the average allotable land,
, there will be no surplus left after
a, (air division is made.
1 Tho Cherokee roll is in a fair
way to an early completion, and
the Cherokee lands are goingto be
Allotted at an early dato, according
to the Curtis Act, which gives the
cititen no specific number of acres
but provides that the lands shall
bo so allotted as to give each citi
zen bis fair and equal share, ac
cording to the value, with only a
surface title, in case the agreement
is not ratified at the coming eleo
tlon. In the event the agreement
is ratified, each citizen will receive
' bis fair and equal share, according
in iha value of the land, with a
clear title with no reservation
whatever, except a precautionary
, restriction intended lor the protec
' 5'on of tho full-blood citizens,
Section seventy two of tho treaty
is no incumbrance on the (itle
which the citizen reserves except
that ho is not permitted to sell his
land until after five years for a cer
tain amount, and twenty one years
for tho balance, On the other
band, under the Curtis Act, the
land cannot be sold at all, and no
title olber than a surface title will
beiiven the allottee.
Every objectionable feature
urged against the present agree
ment by the opposition is also con
ttined in the Curtis Act, while the
agreement contains additional
changes not contained in tho Cur
tis Act more favorable to the peo
pie. For example, in the Curtis
Act thero ia a reservation of min
crals in the allotments given each
citizen, whereas there Ib no such
reservation in the agreement, The
Cherokees have nothing to do ally
more with the property, Including
lands and moneys, they own aa a
nation, They cannot appropriate
one dollar for their own defense
without tbe consent of the preal-
.t.ntnf the United States. The
United BtateB permits the Cbero
keeo to bo stled but will not allow
iimm to annronrlale one dollar to
ftW:rlefend themselves. They are no
longer allowed ft ueirgauon m
Washington to represent them be
fore tbe deparlraonta and commit-
i ..nnnronr.. thlr monev is
r' ,..'.i ..in.nnt thntr consent. For
inB.ance.lhe president disapproved
tbe apt of tae Oborokoo legislature
appropriating money for the relief
of tbo destitute full-blood citizens
of the Nation, and yet without an
appropriation the secretary ot the
interior caused the money to be
paid out II the secretary of tho
interior can pay tho Ulierokeo
money out forjany purpose with
out an appropriation, bo can pay
it for all purposes be Bees fit. The
time has como when each Cbero.
keo Is anxioun to know what his
interest in tho estate is going to
be. No Cherokee today knowB how
to make future provisions for his
family undor tho present condi
lions; and If ono dies now his land
does not go to bin estate, but re
verts to the tribe as a nation.
While the present agreement is
not perfect, it is far ahead ol the
Curtis Act, and the best tbe Cher
okees will ever get; and if it ia de
feated their rolations with tho gov
ernment will become further
strained, and it is doubtful if their
petitions and appeals will receive
favorable consideration; but if, on
tho olber hand, Iho agreement is
ratified, thero will be an excellent
chance for a supplemental agree
ment which will cover all tho de
feols of the preEent arrangement,
and greatly help the Cherokee
people. If the present agreement
isdefeated the Cherokees willnotbe
in a position to receivo recognition
by the commission or by tho au
thorities at Washington.
Tbo Cherokee land office will be
opened in tbo Cherokee Nation
early in the year, or during the
next winter, and If the treaty is de
feated there will bo a rush to the
land office by the pilifcens in de
fense to receive their surface titles
In order to protect themselves
against others who might file on
them if they are left unclaimed.
In tbe Choclnw Nation the gor
ernmenl has permitted six thous

Rock Island Officials Say
They Aro Considering
An Offer.
The rumors as to the absorp
tion of tbe Frisco system by the
Rock Island were given an official
character yesterday when W. II.
Moore of the latter road admitted
that tho purohase of tbo Frisco
was boing considered. Mr. Moore
"Tbe agreemonl with the owners
ol the 'Frisco line, of course, Is
tentative and conditional upon tbe
Rock Island's acceptance of the
terms. We know what tho Frisco
folkB want, and it is simply up to
us to accept or doclind, there be
ing no friction whatever, and the
questinnjresolves itself into only
the one point, as to whether we,
of tbo Rock Island, can make the
Frisco line more proflt?blo than
taking advantage of Jwo opportun
ities for extending our systom
through the southwest to the
Pacific coast."
Unanimity of Sentiment In Pavor of
the Treaty.
Bill 8mllb, commonly known as
"Windy" Smith, had his prelimi
nary hoaring at Chelsea yesterday
on a charge of killing a range steer
and disposing of its bide. Tbe
ovidence was considered sufficient
to commit "Windy" on, and be
was taken to the station to be re
turned to Violin. Before the train
arrived "Windy" disappeared.
Jamea Barker, of Chelsea, bor
rowed a eun and Btarted on bis
trail. Overtaking the rapidly
traveling "Windy" be essayed to
arrest him. To this "Windy" ob
jected, and was promptly punctured.
Smith was brought to Vlnita and
this morning Drs. B. F. Fortner,
Oliver Bagby and Louie Bagby
gavo him modlcat attention. He
was shot three times by Barker,
one ball shattering his forearm,
one penetrating straight through
bis left leg, and tho other ripped a
hole through his left tblgb.
He will recover.
Tho following comments from
the current issues of Indian Terri
tory papers reflects tbe sentiment
of the reading publio in regard to
the treaty, showing a unanimity o
sentiment in favor of ratification:
While some Cherokees are con
scientious and eincero in their op
position to the treaty, there are
others who oppose it aa they al
ways have and always will oppose
anything looking toward a change.
Same of the excessive land holders
and cattlemen are opposed to it
becauao Its ratification would force
them to relinquish their excessive
holdings, but there is another
class, tbe most disgusting, set ol
the lot, who oppose the treaty be-
oauae they hope to gratlfvn uoliti

Let us if you please point out
two sections of each bill. The
Curtis act provides that if after
you take your allotment, you
should die tbe next day your
children will not get the lands,
but will go back to tbe nation. In
tho allotment bill your family
gets what you leave. In the Cur
tis act if, coal or any mineral la
found on your allotment, others
can lease It and dig under your
very door, and you would be pow
erless to prevent them. Tbe al
lotment bill gives you all mineral
found on you land. Which is the
better? 'Cherokeo Advocate.
Vote for the treaty and lets have
IhU thing settled. Does not every
citizen in these parts want to know
where and what his allotment is
One hundred and ten acres is the
average allotment and it gives you

But now it has aeeumed the guise
of a young Lockinvar coming from
the wrong direction, to win the

be however the dowry of taxable

While semi-official rumors were
being circulated ob to tbe proposed
absorption of tbe Frisco system by
tbe Rock Island, President Yoa
kum was preparing a coup where
by the Chicago and Eastern Illi
nois would become a Frisco prop
erty. The completion of the deal
baa now been announced.
The deal covers tbe payment ot
8250 for each sharo of common and
$150 a thare for preferred stock, to
be paid Tor in Block certificates,
according to a reliable statement.
These certiuoatea aro based on a
Chicago and Eastern Illinois capi
talization of 818,000,000. The
Block baa been deposited with a
trust company, tho name of which
has not been officially elated.
These certificates are guaranteed
bv the Frisco, paying 6 per cent
on the preferred and about 10 per
cent on tbo common, enough of
which will be issued to pay about
4 per cent.
The deal gives the Frisco a die
tinct advantage over any road ope
rating in tbe southwest.
vanclng the territory to tbo plane
of greatness to which her natural
resources recommend her. They
would bo delighted to have tbe
torritory annexed to Arkansas
The aame is true of white citizens
ff&Sgliis tbat If annexed to 0kla
noma they would have to over
come many difficulties which have
long since been passed in Arkan
sas. It 1b always best for a now
territory to be annexed to an old
state, In this particular case Ark
ansae baa tbe advantage of all
others for the reason that her laws
are already in force in the terri
tory. The people are educated to
their observance and are familiar
with our instilutiona. It is easy
therefore to realiza what an ad
vantage it would be to these peo
ple to be annexed to Arkansas.
Nor would this state have a great
er population than she could easily
manage. With tbe territory an-
nexed, Arkansas would still be
smaller in area thin many other
state. At present Arkansas has
a population of 1,311,000, while
the tenitory has a population of
302,000, including Indians. We
should have a total of 1,703,000
or less than 2,000,000 population
if we had the territory. Arkansas
has a gross area of 52,850 square
miles, while the territory has only
an area of 32,400 square miles. Add
the two together and we should
have an area of 85,250 square
mileB, which is less than Montana
with 14G.0S0 square mileB, Nevada
with 110,700 square miles, Wyom
ing with 0,890 square miles,
Oregon with 97,030 square mllea,
and two-thirds less than Texas
with 205,780 Bquare miles. Ark
ansaa would then be about the
size of Kansas and Minnesota. It
ought to be unnecessary to Bay
that the Indian territory should be
come a part of Arkansas. Indeed,
there ia a part of this country tbat
was originally detached from this
atate and it should coma back to
us aB a matter of simple justice.
Our delegation in congress should
have no difficulty In- jeolalmlng
their own, Let us make the effort
and the results may repay ub twofold."
