Claims of the Republican Party.
The St. Louis platform of the re
publican party said; "We water
with, deep and abiding iaterest4he
heroic battle of the Cuban .patriots
against cruelty,. and. oppression, and
our best hope zo ont for the full
access of, their. determined, contest
It was f a. buncombe declaration,
born oft hypocrisy. -When, in the
fullness of time, it became neoeasary
for the government of the United
States to interpose. its. strons? arm
and save the. "Cuban, patriots1
against further "cruelty and oppres
sion," the president commanded
that the party's whip be . vigorously
applied to lash it congressmen and
other leaders into submission to
Spam. Every cog of every wheel of
the party's machinery, a well as the
influence of the government, were
made to grind out arguments against
antagonising Spain in behalf of the
Cubans. The administration set its
face hard and. fast against ven the
appearance of giving the Cubans
anything like substantial aid and en
couragement. Republican congress
men are importuned or lasbed ' into
accepting and defending the presi
dent's peaoe-at-any-prioe policy.
Wall street and. the money syndi
cates rushed to Washington to hold
up thejpresident's hands in bis deter
mined opposition to carrying out the
convention pledge Of his party. With
the syndicates of money leader and
the trusts and monopolies standing
about him, the president turned his
back upon Cuba and extended the
hand of friendship to Cuba's op
That is the way the administration
started out to put in operation -the
declaration of the St. Louis plat-
torm. McKInley knew all the time
it was a hypocritical trick to catch
votes, and the votes having been
caught the inner meaning of the de
claration might be given. Therefore
he would theoretically hold the hands
of the Cuban patriots while Spain
laid on the lash with more vigor
than ever. That is what, peace at
any price meant. But the people saw
what was going on, and it did not J
take them long to sweep the admin
istration off its feet. They did not
demand, but they commanded the
president and congress to declare
war against Spain that Cuba might
be tree. The president and his party
leaders obeyed, but very reluctantly.
Victory followed victory, in spite of
the bungling and inefficiency of the
And now bob up the leaders and
claim it was the republican party's
war and that all the praise and glory
accruing to the, nation from the
splendid work of the army and navy
is the-exclTrstve-property of the re
publican party, nd in consideration
of the great bead of MoKinley he and
his followers, should be recommis
iooed to administer the public con
cerns of the people. The people have
not forgotten how tbey bad to force
the administration from its peace-at-
any price - policy and put a gun into
its hands and drove it off to war
The democratic newspapers of the
country, voicing the - sentiments of
the people, raised the hue and cry
against-the- administration's subser
viency to Spain and its subjection to
the money powers, and drove the
president into asking congress to de
dare, war. Of .course, It was to be
expected that the brilliant achieve
ments of the army and navy would
be appropriated by? the republican
The Lucky Creek Freedmen. .
The members of the Dawes torn:
mission who have been engaged for
the last month in enrolling the freed-'
men of the Creek nation, have about
completed their labors and will pro
ceed In about a week to the Chick
asaw nation, where they will make
rolls of the members and freedmen
of that tribe.
The completion of the roll of Creek
freedmen will settle forever the right
of negro claimants to participate in
the distribution of the landa and
moneys of that nation, as the roll
which is now being oompleted is in
tend ad to be the final roU of the
Creek freedmen. All negroes , who
claimed enrollment as Creek freed
men have been required by the com
mission to show that either the
claimants or their ancestors were on
the Dunn roll of 1867, which is the
first roll that was ever made of the
Creek freedmen and contained 1,774
names The present freedmen roll
will contain between 4,000 and 5,000
names and will mean that about one-
third of the lands and moneys of the
Creek Indians are to be given to
those negroes who were either slaves
of Creek . Indiana, descendants of
such slaves or residents in the Creek
nation at the close of the civil war.
Each man, woman and ohild who
is a freed man of the Creek nation
will now have between 200 and 250
acres of land and several hundred
dollars in money. This will place
the freedmen of the Creek nation, as
a community, probably in better cir
cumstances than any other negroes
in the United States. In addition to
an equal share in the lands and
moneys of the Creek nation, the
freedmen have had and will continue
to have, the benefits of the free
schools of the nation. These schools
consist of two orphan homes one
for Creek Indians, the other for
Creek freedmen, eight mission
schools and a large numberlof neigh
boring schools, all of which are sup
ported by the Creek nation and cost
over 130,000 a year.
