TESTIMONY BEFORE INVESTIGAT
ING COMMITTEE SHOWS THAT
INDIANS WANTED TO DISPOSE
OF THEIR HOLDINGS
Herald SDeclal
McAIester Okla Aug 8 The con
gressional committee resumed its in
vestigation this morning into the Mc
Murray land contracts It is asserted
that one witness not yet called to
the stand will testify involving a
congressman who is said to have so
licited a bribe The testimony of
Chief Green McCurtain of the Choc
taws and his son D C McCurtain
has started a new tact in the investi
gation The testimony of the younger
McCurtain that J P McMurray offer
ed him 25000 when he was a mem
ber of the Choctaw delegation to
work for the approval of the contracts
will probably result in McMurray be
ing recalled to the stand today Ex
pressions from members of the con
gressional committee make it evident
that the Indians will get a square
deal in the future
Chairman Burke of the investigat
ing committee will call many Indians
to the stand within the next few days
n an effort to learn everything pos
sible fiom them as to the deals in
their lands D C McCurtain was the
first witress called this morning and
told cf being employed as attorney for
the McMurray f rm and retold the
story of being offered 25000 as a
bribe
It was brought out in the investi
gation today that McMurray wasIn
terested in two kinds of contracts
A the
cross country flight including
OlmilB
one employing him as an attorney
the land sales and another to resist
payment of taxes by the Indians
Dennis T Flynn attorney for Mc
Murray explained how the McMurray
firm got into the case At a powwow
at Sulphur a committee of fifteen
was appointed to circulate contracts
among the Indians to get them to pay
ten per cent on collections The In
dians notes payable to McMurray
were taken
W T Halman a former Indian po
liceman testified that he circulated
contracts and secured one hundred
signatures Halman insisted that the
Indians wanted to get their money out
of the lands and wanted a general set
tlement with the governorment Con
gressman Mlllner of Minnesota sub
jected Halman to a vigorous cross
examination to establish the fact that
the attorneys advised the Indians
that it was necessary to employ law
yers to get their money from the gov
ernment The committee spent hours
in trying to win Halman over to the
conservation question but he insisted
persistently that the Indians wanted
their money on the lands Under the
piesent tribal law at the death of In
dian the lands go to the tribe and
not to the dead mens families and
the Indians wanted this kind of set
tlemen stopped
