lint Springs, Ark., April 30.-Flormer
State Senator Melvilcle E. Shaw of W'apa
koncta, 0.. stopped off here to put his aged
lather-in-law. Mr. Bautach, also of Wi ,.
koneta, under treatn -t'. I.. ,*eftei rlicuma
Mr. .liaw went on to the Indian terri
tory to carry out a colossal land deal,
which will no doubt net him and his
partner, Colonel Owens, of the territory,
a barrel of coin.
Mr. Shaw and Colonel Owens have or
ganized themselves into a company to rep
resent the Mississippi Choctaw Indians in
their allotment of lands in the Indian Ter
Colonel Owens has spent more than a
lifetine among the civilized tribes, and
was superintendent of the schools for the
"live civilized tribes" a number of years.
The Legal Counsel.
lie has been the legal counsel for the
Choctaws in the territory for many years,
andi disbursed the government appropria
tinn to them, giving bond in the sum of
$ t.onono.
There are t,oon,ooo ares of fertile
lands in the cotton and coal belt, cm
braced in an area of zoo miles long by mao
wide." said Mr. Shaw.
" here are 3.,oo Choctaws residing in
the state of Mississippi. The great body
of the trihbes was transferred by the
overnmient from Mississippi, their original
hotnme. to the Indian territory long before
the civil war, and the 3,oo0 now in that
state are the descendants of those who
remained in that state, the larger number
of whom are now about Meridian, though
they arc scattered in various other lo
"They are all entitled to the same al
lotment as those who are descendants of
thnose originally taken into the Indian
Each Gete a Farm.
"(Of the 3,.ooo in Mississippi we repre
sent a,ooo, every man, woman and child of
whom is entitled to 32o acres of the lands
in the Indian territory as rich as ever the
crow flew over. That will give those we
represent 640,00o0 acres.
"We will look after their allontments
and sales and be their legal adlvisers and
representatives in all business transac
"All their lands have been carefully sur
veyed by the government in 4,0 acre lots
anI mapped out a+ perfectly as anything
•in the Upited States.
"These lands have hcen assessed by the
governmentc, none of tlhemt at tmore than
$6 per acre, and yet just across the Red
river in Texas identically the sane kinil
of lands are selling at front $4. to $6o
per acre. They are choice cotton lands,
and produce almost everything.
"Under the provisions of the act of
congress allotting these lands in the In
dian territory to the Mississippi (Choctaws
the) are requttired to remove to the lands
for occupation within six months, but sonice
of them refuse to go, it being against their
tradition to leave the ancient stamping
grounds of their tribe.
Files Suit.
"('oloinel Owens andl my.self have filed a
suit before the United States eonrt ait
Ww.thintgton to prrmit those who declitne
to leave piermissison to stay in their happy
Mississippi homes and i, lease. sill or
otherwise dispose of their possc.ssins in
the territory.
"It is a fine point of constitiutional law,
it being hell on the one hand that the
governm1ent has ino more right to remtove
themt to other la.nds than it ha:s to comtplel
a white heir to go to lands inheritedl from
his ancestor, while on the oilither h'atil it is
contended t lhat there have lttLen deIsiinns
to the cliect that inasmuthl as the govern
sment has the control and tnaintetnante of
the Indians in its charge it hias a right to
plirce them wherever congress d'eclare..
"We have only a short time to get the
suit through. 'IThe land of milk and honey
portrayed to them or awaiting theni in the
territory appears to have mt temptation to
quite a number of those in Missisasippi, andI
they would rather lose their allotment than
leave the lands they have inherited from
the centuries."
