Tb the Commissioner of Indian affaiis;
Six—I return herewith the enclosures
which accompanied your letter of the
lotii inst. in relation to the right* of
white persons who have married mens-
hers of Choctaw or Chickasaw tribes of
Indians, hut not Hi accordance with their
laws, having been married In the states
and in accordance with the law of the
location where the ceremony was per-
formed. In the psrticular rasa per-
senled—that of Mr, Jaa. H. Franklin.
It appears that Franklin, a white man
residing in Texas contracted marriage
under the laws of the state of Texas with
a Chickasaw Indian woman in 1874: that
at that time the law regulating marriaga
with the Chickasaw Nation required that
the citisens of the United States should
have been a resident of the Chickasaw
Oountry for two years previous to said
It also appears that after the marriage

one of the rarest of treats to an inland

Mr.! J. G. Stutta, a famous actor him-

artists, has fairly won the heart of our
people. Night after night the large au-

shown their appreciation of the splendid
talents of his troupe.

Never have we seen a finer piece of act-

persecutors and a desire to rush to her
rescue. Moist eye* attested the sympa-

est of our city at heart.
It is said that 50,000 people die annu-

disease. In some sections of the country
one death in every three is from consump-
tion. This can be and should b* avoid-
ed; our people are too carries* about an
ordinary cough dr cold, and other symp-
toms ot throat and lung affections that
lead to this disease. Yon should arrest
it while it is in the germ. Two or three
doses iff Dr, Boeanko’s Cough and Lung
Syrup will relieve an ordinary cough or
cold. It does not dry up a cough like
many preparations, and leave the disease
behind it, but aria directly on the throat
and bronchial tabes, removing all the
