TtlC ANflUR OF HITCHCOCK. News comes from Washington thnt Secretary Hitchcock is wrnthy over the turning down of the Cherokee treaty aud that he will give them the Curtis act cold, sea soned with prosecutions, for ex cessivo land holdinRS aud all the rest. It seems thnt this sort of an nouncement from the secretary is n little premature, ns tho powers nrn already moving for another treaty which Senntor Quarles ad vises tho Cherokees to prepare It lookB ns if Mr. Hitchcock wns nugered most become of the de feat of the mineral lease claims which he permitted to go in the treaty against the protests of the chief and his advisers. The mem bers of the Dawes commission say that title can not be given to townsites or their lauds allotted in severalty among the citizens with out their legal consent, aud the only way in which thnt consent can be given is by treaty. Of course nobody doubts that the gov ernment can do the nlloMng by force as has been done in the Phil ippines, the Indians can be given their allotments nnd the townsites sold, but there would be given r legacy of never ending law suits regarding title, which would be like n mill stone about the neck of the entire section .-Guthrie Leader. As tiik old woman lemarked when told the cow had ate up the grindstone, "That's just what I always thought would hnppen." The senate committee, appointed to investigate affairs down here, did just what was predicted they would do.

They will call Hub visiting tho Indian Territory.
