Disapproved of McMurray Contracts (Special to the Spanish American) Muskogee, Okla., Aug. 6. Not on ly .United States Senator Curtis oí Kansas, but also Vice President Sher man disapproved of the contracts, by wuicn an attorney s iee or mree million dollars was to be allowed in the sale of $30,000 worth ofaCg. . . ,P the sale of $30,000,000 worth of In- .. dian lands in Oklahoma. This assertion formed the sun-. stance of the testimony given by Sen ator Curtis today before the commit tee appointed by the house of repre sentatives Investigate what is known as the McMurray contracts. Senator Curtis related the details of conversation that took place in the White House last April between Pres ident Taftt Vive President Sherman and h 1 m col f Thfl Canani evnUlnal é Vl a V A TIT r a n m AmVinM rP III a nnnn committee on Indian affairs, had been for fourteen years a member of the house committee and that Vice Presi-' dent Sherman had been chairman cf the nouse committee. 'The president," said Senator Cur- opening the question of Indian enroll ment It seems ttikt there are about fourteen thousand claffti'anis who as sert that they are Indians and who are left off the rolls. I told the president that it would be a serious mistake 'o reopen that question. The president then asked about McMurray, and what we thought of allowing ten per cent as attorney's fees. Both Mr. Sher man and I replied that we did not be lieve that the Indians needed any at torneys on the basis of ten per cent, or on any other basis. We called at tention to the fact that treaties be- tween the Indians and the government ' called for the sale of the land by the government, and that no counsel was needed." "We pointed out," he continued, that to give attorney's fees simply would deprive the Indians of that much profit guaranteed them by the government. That formed the sub stance of our talk." . More charges of attempted bribery in Oklahoma land deals were made be fore the congressional Investigating committee today,- D. C. McCurtain, a Choctaw Indian, son of the governor of the Choctaw nation and attorney for that tribe, testified that J. F. Mc Murray had offered him $25,000 not to approve the land deal. "That has become the actual belief that they have to give up a good por tion of what they get In attorney's fees," replied Hollman. In a statement to the committee, and without going on the stand to day, McMurray declared that the con tracts came to him originally against his desire. He said that the Indians, at a "war council" had demonstrated their impatience at the govern ment's slowness In selling the land and had called upon him to take the Job at ten per cent, which he did with reluctance. McMurray will go upon the stand later.
