ullc V.MH AlP"I"'''ll.
By -virtue of this authority Daniel Glilts,
Dave Muskrat and 1 J. Uoudinot were ap
iwlnted to constitute the j:ecutie Com
mittee, and that from this authority a con
tract was- made with John Vaile of Fort
Smith. Ark., to collect the greater portion
or this claim, which is now being claimed
by the Emigrant Cherokees.
The committee think that it is time
enough after the money has been collected
to determine to what class of Chtiokcs
the money is due, and from reliable infor
mation finds that the sj-ealled Emigrant
Council represents only a. minority o t!'c
ical Emigrant citizens of the Chtrokee Na
tion, and concludes that the so-called Emi
grant Council is without standing or au
thority of law and does, not repiesent a
majority of the Emigrant Cheiokees. and
that the right to collect this claim, sis welt
as others, belongs to the Cherokee Nation,
or Its constituted authority, and which. ty
right should be paid, and the collection of
which should not bo delayed longer by the
Counter C'lniiu It nixed.
For the reasons stated the contract b
tween John Vaile and the Emigiant Council
cannot be ratified by this Council, and the
Secretary of the Interior will at once be
notified that the Cherokee National Council
ilesirc-9 that said contract be abrogated and
declared null and -void. A copy ot the tca

In the beginning of the Chil War he 01
ganlzed a. company of Union Infantry ol

Chil War with distinction.
After the war he resumed his manufac-

JIatch Company in 3SS0. and retired from
active business until 1891, when he organ
ized the Thiebes-Stlerlin llut-lc Company,

5Ir. Ctchele was a splendid type of the
self-made American. His physique was ot
the athletic mold, his mind clear and per
ceptive and his well-known characteristics
of honesty, decision and action attracted
many stanch friends and admirers.
The bpnoficiarics ot his unostentatious
charity will blend a genuine grief -with their
regret at not having an opportunity of again
feeling the kindly grasp of his sympathetic
