The Cherokees Have an Issue
Special to the Gazette
TAniEQCiH I T June 23 Never in
the history of the Cherokee Nation Trias
there so much intense and exciting inter
est taken in political matters as is being
manifested in this nation at present The
Cherokees are in the midst of a redhot
campaign The election of a chief or gov
ernor and members of a council or legisla
ture takes place the first Monday in Au
gust next There are three organized po
litical parties of about equal strength the
Liberal party the National party and tho
Downing party Each respective party has
nominated a candidate for chief and each
party is exerting every method to elect its
standardbearer The Liberals have chosen
Hon Dennis W Bushyhead as their candi
date the Nationals Hon George W
Benge and the Downings propose to re
elect Hon J B Mayes to the executive
chair Bushyhead will probably be elected
He is no doubt the most able Cherokee of
his day and the shrewdest politician of the
J three candidates He has served two terms
as chief and has been frequently
commissioned a delegate to Washington by
his people He has also served his people
as treasurer of this nation two terms
Bushyhead is a halfblood Cherokee and
speaks both the English and Cherokee lan
guage which
over his opponents in his electioneering du
ties as neither of the opposing candidates
can speak the Cherokeo language He is
now in the prime of life is about fifty years
of age and enjoying the best of health He
is an eloquent speaker and a good scholar
He left the old nation in Georgia during the
California gold fever when a young man
and went to California where he married a
Miss Butler a cousin to Senator Ben But
ler and returned to this Nation about 1S70
After permanently locating here he plunged
into the politics of the country and has
grown rich off the public crib He lives in
a Queen Anne cottage and owns several
good farms He is a statesman and finan
cier He is the only one of the three can
didates who favors the breaking up of tho
tribal relations and tho allotment of the In
dian lands The allotment question is
the Cherokees have ever had in their cam
paigns Heretofore tho loaves and
fishes were the only incentive to control
the government reins But Bushyhead as
one of the most advanced thinkers and pro
gressive men of the Cherokee tribe has
discerned the handwriting on the wall
has stepped forth on an allotment platform
and says it is the nations only salvation
His plan is in favor as a general rule with
the Cherokees and will win Both Mayes
and Benpe stubbornly oppose this measure
and say that their people are not ready to
allot their land and live as the ptlefaces
doMayes as a chief has been a dismal fail
ure He has been in the executive office
but a little over three years and has
brought the Cherokees almost to bank
ruptcy He has stubbornly opposed a sale
to the government of tho Cherokee Strip
and has figured conspicuously as a member
of the cattle association This alone will
prove his defeat for chief
As a general rule the Cherokees favor a
sale of tho Strip to the United States govern
ment at 125 per acre The Cherokee com
missions failure to purchase this land last
year is almost wholly due to Mayes opposi
tion to a salo Mayes is a fullfledged
member of the Cherokee Strip livestock as
sociation Last month there was a meeting
held at Arkansas City Kan between tho
chief and the cattle barons and arrange
ments were perfected to take possession of
the Strip and cover the best portion of it
with Cherokee and Texas longhorns Ed
Hewins and others of the cattle syndicate
are thought to be in tho combine with
Mayes to hold the Strip Their plan is to
establish headquarters at Willows ship
cattle from Texas consigned to certain
Cherokees who will hold the cattle on the
Strip and if Uncle Sam attempts to inter
fere get an injunction and hold the United
States government up By getting into the
courts they expect to hold possession
Contracts have already been let to fence
a portion of the Strip to be used as yards
for the horses used in herding Thousands
of cattle now on the Strip ostensibly for
grazing on the Osage reservation are to bo
held where they are in charge of this com
ftfr Another feature of this syndicate is the
colonization of the eastern portion Of the
Strip next spring by the Cherokees who it
is said are backed in the scheme by a pow
erful syndicate having among its members
wellknown senators of the United States
who will with the cooperation of Chief
Mayes defeat all bills and measures look
ing to an early purchase and opening up of
this vast and fertile domain If successful
in their scheme this syndicate will fill the
entire Strip less that part colonized by the
Cherokees with cattle next spring The
advance in the price of cattle and the charg
ing of a heavy rental by tho istate of Texas
for her grazing lands have stimulated this
colossal combine which threatens to defy
the UnitedStates and to thwart all efforts
to open the Strip to white settlement
Unless the authorities at Washington act
promptly and put a stop to this movement
the opening of the Strip may be delayed for
years Secretary Noble and President Har
rison have been notified of this Texas
Cherokee combination and it is thought
should they neglect to suppress it an old
time Fourth of July barbecue at the Wil
lows 20000 homeseekers feasting on

How Sir John McDonald and Sir Charles Tup

Secretary Blaine Wanted the Troposed
Canadian Reciprocity Contention
to be Mrlctly a Pri
vate Analr
Ottawa Oxt June 23 A bulky bundle
of documents tied with red tape was laid on
tho table of the senate chamber by the pre
mier just before the senate rose last night
It was a message from the governorgeneral
transmitting further papers relating to the
extension and development of trade be
tween the United States and tho Dominion
of Canada including Newfoundland
On March 16 after the elections were
over and Sir John McDonald had been sus
tained the governorgeneral wrote the
British minister at Washington asking him
to ascertain when it would be convenient
for Secretary Blaine to receive representa
tives of the Canadian government and dis
cuss the question of reciprocity
A letter from Secretary Blaine trans
mitted to the governorgeneral by the
British minister at Washington in a com
munication dated April 2 1691 is tho most
notable of the correspondence
Department of State
Washington April 11S91 f
My Dear Sir Julian
I duly received the note which you did
mo the honor to address to me on the 20th
inst I regret that for many reasons I have
been unable to make an earlier response
For convenience sake I here quote tho
substantial part of the note In a note
dated January 23 last I had the pleasure to
inform you confidentially that the Canadian
government in deference to your preference
for an unofficial conference on the question
of reciprocity were disposed to meet your
wishes in that respect It was understood
that you would be ready after tho 4th of
March to discuss this subject officially with
me and two or tlireo more agents from
Canada I have now received a dispatch
from the governorgeneral of Canada in
which he requests me to ascertain whether
the present time is convenient to you for
that purpose in which ease the representa
tives appointed by the Canadian govern
ment will go to Washington to confer in
the manner proposed on any or all subjects
indicated in the base of negotiations which
I had the honor to place in your hands
December 22 last
A copy of tho dispatch of the negotiations
which you gave me December 22 is ap
pended hereto
You told me if my memory is not in
error that you were instructed by Ixird
Salisbury to propose topics to the United
States for discussion and if possible for
agreement I answered that I felt sure
that the president would be willing to ap
point a commission to consider tho proposi
tions as they were stated and further
more that I would willingly submit them
to the president After some further con
versation in which you repeated these
propositions were merely the basis upon
which discussion might be instituted I re
plied that in any event I had not a moment
to give to the subject until after the ad
journment of congress in March but nfter
that date I would be willing to respond to
your request and to give a full private con
ference to the British minister and one or
more agents and go over every point of dif
ference If an official agreement is reached
all well if not no official mention is to be
made of the effort Above all things it is
important to avoid public reference to this
matter This the president will insist on
While no notes were exchanged between
us I carefully minuted my modification of
the paper you left with me containing Lord
Salisburys proposition and did so imme
diately after you left the department You
will observe that the private character I
wished to impart to the conference is recog
nized by you months later in your note of
January 27 when you cabled correspond
ence confidential
In view of the fact that you had come to
the state department with tho proposals
and that the subject was then for the first
time mentioned and in view of the fact
that I agreed to a private conference as ex
plained in my minutes I confess it was a
surprise when several weeks later during
the Canadian canvass Sir John MacDon
ald and Sir Charles Tupper both stated be
fore public assemblages that the formal
discussion of a reciprocity treaty would
take place at Washington after the 4th of
March by invitation of the secretary of
With this explanation it only remains for
mo to say that the representatives of the
Dominion of Canada may be assured of a
courteous and cordial reception in Wash
ington by tho government of the United
States J G Blaine

Washington June 23 Tho deficit in
the net surplus has yielded to the earnest
efforts of Acting Secretary Nettleton and
treasury ollicials to wipe it out The treas
urers statement today shows a small mar
gin to tho credit of tho government Thero
arc htill breakers ahead however for the
interest payment of 4perceut bonds to the
amount of more than t > XK000 has to be
provided for early in tho month The new
system of making pension payments at
each of the asencies each month will call
for about 10000000 more Tho truth is
that no amount of liguring will conceal the
fact that it is very hard sledding for Secre
tary Fosters team and tnat it is likely to
scrape over awkward bare patches almost
any day
Tho jiension bureau is doins its part in
assisting tho treasury department to create
a suBicient surplus to meet the July pay
ments I am credibly informed that thou
sands of certificates are piled up in the cer
tificate division Why are they held back
The claims have been passed on and cer
tificates granted and in all justice if pen
sion laws are > ery Just the pensioner
should receive his certificate and tho United
States government pay the cash asked for
But in order to gain a little leeway tlni
wounded veteran dependent widows and
orphans are compelled to wait until the suv
ply iu the treasury is filled from the dimin
ished stream of expenses There has been a
good deal of grumblingamoug pension attor
neys at the delay in having their cases con
The complaint now is that certiorates
have not been sent out This same goheino
was attempted last month but too lato to
be of any benefit The certificates that
were issued generally called for small sums
This policy being continued through the
month of June may have some effect but
the relief can bo but temporary Even
Commissioner IJaum with all his disposi
tion to help his party out of the hole and
thus prove himself indispensable to the ad
ministration dares not keep pension cer
tificates locked up in his buronu foranjlcon

There is no doubt that the general out
burst of tho Eastern press including eveu
pronounced administration organs in de
preciation of Secretary Fosters plan for
coiuing the entire amount of silver bullion
purchased by the treasury eacli month af
ter July 1 has attracted attention in high
quarters in Washington The cabinet meet
ing on Friday will be a spirited one Every
member is expected to be present except
Blaine whose sympathies are known to be
strong with tho silver clement and tho
whole ground will bo gone over
What will embarrass the administration
most in its effort to carry out its coinage
programme is the limited capacity of thu
mints at least this will be made the excuse
if it shall be desirable to have one
It is claimed in some quarters that tha
mints can turn out about three million
standard dollars in a month and hence that
the proposal to com 3000000 of them would
be impracticable While Secretary Foster
is the putative author of the scheme to con
tinue silver coinage and would loyally re
fuse to bo put in any position of antagonism
towards his chief ho is believed to be by
far the more conservative of the two in his
feelings It may be that he will succeed in
bringing from Ohio and Illinois some hints
which will modify Harrisons enthusiasm
in a measure so that a compromise will ba
reached on some such basis as tho continued
coinage of 2000000 or 2500000 ounces a
month instead of attempting the whola
quantity purchased So many things aro
liable to happen between now and December
that it would bo unsafe to make any prophe
cies but if tho Fiftysecond congress were
to meet for the ffrst session tomorrow the
presidents message would astonish the
country It would ipcommend not absolute
free coinage but free coinage of the Ameri
can silver product
