THE CHICKA8AW8.
The Chickasaw Indians, especially
those who hare been Identified wttb
the government of tfc Indians in the
but few years, are very murh In favor
of abolishing the government of the
tribe, as It is at present constituted.
They argue, and with good reason.
Utat tkeve la nothing to the present
form of government, that Is of any
rata to Uio Chickasaw people as a
whole. As a matter of fact the acta
of tho Chickasaw legislature are moro
child's play and amount to nothing,
andjw far the Chlekasaw officers be
ing ablo to do anything In the way
of enforcing laws, keeping tho peace,
or anything that In any way helps the
condition of the Chlekasaw people,
that Is all stuff. Tho laws amount to
nothing, and the office-holders perform
purely perfunctory ami needless du
ties. It has been suggested by some that
If the tribal govornment of the nation
be now dissolved, that here will be no
moans of carrying on schools. It is
suggested by those who favor a
change of Chickasaw affairs and abol
ishment of all form of tribal govern
ment that the contracts now standing
for schools for the nation be provided
for. Tho Interest on the trust funds
of tho nation now amounts to some
thing like ICG.OeO annually, and the
royalties from tho coal and asphalt
mines amount to about $84,090. There
are only about 760 Chickasaw school
children to bo educated, and thero Is
a fund available for tholr oJucatlon,
amounting to $100,000 per annum. It
Is entirely sufllclont not only to odu
cato those 750 ohlldron but would
clothe them ob well, and provide modi
cal attention for thorn. Thero would
bo no trouble! about odocatlng the
children. There. would bo moro-monoy
ior ouunationai purposes, in fact, than
thero Is undor the tfreeont ordor ot
things, whon so much money Is taken
out of tho school fund to keep upj d
form of government that Is not need-
xl and cannot be of any further uso
o the people..
A movement Is on foot among the
Chlckasaws to end the government by
the tribe with the end of the Moseloy
administration. It would havo two
moro years of logal life. If the Indians
want to continue It, but thoy figure
that considerable monoy may bo sav
ed by stopping It boforo tho time is
out, and that tho children who need
education may receive bettor educa
tion by tho nbollshmont of tho tribal
govornment.
Tho Chlckasaws Vho havo studied
tho woll-belng of tho pebplo of the
Nation nro In favor of doing oyorythlng
posslblo that will havo a tondonoy to
protect nnd savov tho monoy of tho
people nnd to educate tho children of
tho Chickasaw people looking to the
time when they shall need such edu
cation to copo with tho white pooplo
with whom thoy will hnve to compete
on equal terms.
It looks llko tho time Is now ripo
for tho removal of all tho old tribal
formB and offlcos and that truly It
would moan a great saving to tho
POopHjfjof tho nation to havo the gov
ernment onded boforo tho tlmo for It

THE TRIBAL TA.,
i.i
The Indian agent has been giving
lyuBmurauie puuiiniy to a tnrcat that!
if tho tribal tax on morohants Is not
paid ho will closo tho stores through
tho Indian Territory. Wlthbut enter
ing Into a discussion of this tax, a tax
which pays for.no protection, a lax
which Is pure trtbtilo for the right to
llvo and do business, a tax In addition
to laxos for schools and police protec
tion a, a gift to support a Joke govorn
ment whose chief function is to give
n few men Jobs, wo doslre to coll our
readers' attontlon to a decision hand
ml down by the court of nnneals for
the Indian Territory at tho October
term. 1002. This decision says that
stores cannot bo closed for failure to
pay tax and that men In possession of
town lots In regularly platted town-
sites cannot bo ojactod as Intruders.
Tho only moans loft for the collection
of this debt Is tho ordinary channol of
mo courts.
With duo deforonco to the onlnlon
of tho secrotary of tho Interior this Is
now tho law. Tho regular Judiciary
haB so decided. Tho threat of the
Indian agont Is consequently omDtv.
Tho wldo publicity given it Is moroly
a bluff, to Intimidate tho timid.
If tho tax could bo collected. In ad
dition to tho Fedornl tax and the city
tax. tho chlof wholoBale men of tho
Indian Territory would havo to move
out. Tho tax Is lovlod on all goods
Introduced. This during the year Is
often four or flvo times tho value of
tho stock. Tho tax would bo a bur.
den which tho Territory wholesalo bus-
Inofls men could not stand.
Ono of tho leading wholesale men
In tho city said today: "Wo would
havo to movo to Fort Smith If forced
to pay this tax In addition to tho city
tax. Wo could ship goods In hero
from Fort Smith lots cheaper than to
pay the tax on ovcry shipment of
goods we have bro tght lie? "VVi will
resist the pa. in' at and If forced to pay
It by the lat court, we will dimply
have to mow" '
It Is a kprioiiK matter. It h '" be

Tho objections to the publicity
provision or toe now rode. .. laws aro
confli.ed to r. comparative. men.
conspicuous among whom are John D.
Rockefeller and H. O. Havemoyor.
These two individuals dominate two
of the most successful Industries In
tho world Standard Oil and American
Sugar Roflnerles (snger trust). It has
been their policy from the first to with
hold everything but the barest skele
ton statoments of the net results of
business dono. Thoy nre autocratic
In their specialties and Insist that
neither the public nor the stockholders
havo any right to Inquire as to the
details or general policy and they
have consistently lived up to their
ideal In this respect. Every minor
stockholder In these concerns Is ab
solutely In the dark as to what his
Investment represents. All he knows
Is that at certain Intervals and at the
pleasure of the dominating mnnngo
ment, dividends are distributed and
market quotations for the stoek aro
based amost entirely thereon. Conse
quently Sir. Mr. Rockefeller and Mr.
Havemoyor took fright at the sugges
tion thnt they might have to take the
public Into their confidence; hence
their earnest objections to having
"publicity" written Into tho law..
Early In March the Standard oil
stock holders are to recelvo $20,000,
000 in dividends. This mnkos $328,
000,000 paid by the Standnrd oil to Its
stockholders within a period of twelve
yoars. Enormous additional profits
have boon paid Insiders in the way of
dividends on tho stock of the com
panies which aro tho outgrowth of the
oil buslnoss. Tho Sttudard oil build
ing, an Immenso structure on Lower
Broadway, Is filled with these minor
companlos. It Is designted In tho
"Btreot" as "26 Broadway." a name
that ombracos not a multitude of sins
exactly, but a multitude of Standard
oil projects.
Big money is still needed by the
big people In tho carrying out of their
ments and extension of railroads and
dustrinl development. Tho stock mar
ket Ihorcforo waits until the edge of
tho appetito of the giants is turned.
The time Is considered opportune by
tho masters of tho situation for mak
ing provision for contemplated botter-
raents and extension of rallrods, and
for tho conduct of larger financial deals
In connection with tho stool trust and
othtr protontlous Industrials. Thoso
noeds nre In rapid process of being
supplied, nnd the public Is receiving
pointed hints thnt It will not be long
before an Invitation Will be extended

which have been invosted In putting

took place. It Is for this reason that
numerous blockades occur, and It is
for relief In that direction thnt rail
road companies aro now bending their
energies. Congestion cuts down rev
onuo and Is therefore to bo avoided.
The president of one of the leading
railroads spoko tho exact truth when
ho said tho other day that the rail
roads of tho country would bo better
off If they did not have so much busi
ness. They hnve moro tonnage today
than they can handle to lb" -
advantage.
We ha- been on the edge of gold
exports for the last two weeks, but it
has not been the doelre of the "kings
of the atreet" that tho yellow mtai
should go out at this time. Actual
negotiations wero undertaken several
times by a leading international bank
ing homo, which has no especial affil
iations with the speculative Interest.
Each tlmo, however. It was made an
object for the house to abandon its
purpose and no gold has yet been
shipped. Wall street gives gold ex
ports exaggerated Importance and for
speculative effect It has not been con
sidered advisable to reduce thehoardi
of gold In tho United States, although
the total (s now tho largest In histo
ry. Thoro Is no moro reason why the
United States should not oxport gold
than any other product. Tho produc
tion of this country approximates $85.
00O..0OO a year at tho present time and
most of It is kept at homo going to
Incroaso circulation. Wo might Just
as well ship gold as wheat, cotton,
corn or provisions, but it seems to be
against the policy of tho kings of
finance to allow it to bo done. Hence
when thoro is imminent danger of
shipments tho leading banking houses
erect barriors to check the outgo. This
Is usually dono by soiling bills which
Is ono form of borrowing money
abroad to meet such obligations as
might bo maturing and which would
naturally call for exports of gold. Ii
Is not Impossible, however, that the
coming week may witness moderate
exports of tho yollow metal.
Wall street will bo heartily glad
when congress- adjourns. If It passes
the Aldrlch financial bill, danger of a
repotltlon of last fairs stringency
will be averted. The banking combi
nation Is working hard to forward
that particular piece of legislation and
has assurance that the measure .will
become a law. Congress is foreiven
already for Its anti-trust enactments
and there Is a prevailing spirit of
thankfulness that nothing worse was
done. The verdict Is that congress on
tho whole has not done so bad.
The market leaders and Investors
genornlly, howover. will not feel oulto
safe, until the statesmen final
ly vacate Washington and return to
their respective bailiwicks. Un! II there
Is an actual adjournment there Is al
ways danger of a dead-lock which
would necessitate a special session.
That would bo regarded almost as a
calamity and would not fall to unsettle
va)uos . Almost two weeks must
elapso before the end of tho current
session, but that Is not a long wait
as tlmo Is measured In Wall street.
Meantime many of tho large opera
tors are availing thomselves of the
normally quloscont condition of things
to devoto a little time to recreation
at the numerous winter resorts. Thoy
will begin to return by the 10th of
March and a majority of them will
bo on deck again by the 15th.
