Report of the Body on the Reorginixation
of the Indian Territory.
\ The annual report of the Dawes
Indian commission, bringing the
work of that body in re-organizing
the Indian Territory up to date of
early this week, has been made
public. It urges as the main call
tor government aid, “fraught with
disasterous consequences if delay-
ed,” the need of some provision by
the national government for educa-
tional purposes in the Territory.
While the funds and resources of
the several tribes, properly man-
aged, can probably supply sufficient
support for the schools of the citizen
making of Kidney, Bladder and all uri- , , ... . ------
nary diseases, also Rheumatiam, Dropsy, Indian, yet the white residents can
The case against Dr. Jones for
the murder of Veal in Dallas has
been disposed of at last. The kill-
ing took place five or six years ago,
and it was coldblooded. After half
a dozen trials, last week a jury as-
sessed his punishment at t.vo yer.s
in the penitentiary. Such a sentence
is ridiculous, but Jones had money
to back him.
Female Complaints and in fact all
troubles of a Genito Urinary character.
Old chronic or obstinate cases, and
those suffering from Bright’s disease
seem to improve from the first day of its
use and a speedy cure follows.
The plant is steeped the same as com-
mon tea and is very pleasant to take.
Being one ot the few Americans here in
the export business I am receiving re-
quests from physicians and sufferers
from all parts of the world for samples
of this plant, which I send free, in its
natural state, enough to give it a
thorough trial with full instructions for
use. If 24c in stamps is enclosed I will
send it by mail prepaid to all parts of
the U. S. or Canada, otherwise by ex-
press at receiver’s expense, (usually from
40 to 60 cents.)
There is no duty on this plant and the
postage here from the U. S. is only 2c.

not share in them, and must look
elsewhere for the means of educat-
ing their children. The means re-
sorted to in all the other territories,
and out of which ample school funds
have been provided, do not exist in
the Indian Territory, in which the
United States has not an acre of
public land or other property be-
yond that in public uses. jj
If the white residents are to re-
ceive any aid from the United
States it must be from the outside
and by direct appropriation. If
they are left without any such aid it
will be a harsher treatment than has
been meted.out to the residents ot
any other territory, and will he at
tended with the most disasterous
consequences, There are believed
to be between 250,000 and 300,000
white residents in the Territory to-
day, and well nigh 30,000 of them
children of school age. They are
there to stay, making homes for
themselves, and destined to be a
part of the body politic of a state.
While some of them, living in the
towns, are anxious to educate their
children and may be able to some
extent to do sq from their private
means, yet it is quite different with
the poor pioneers jn the country,
who constitute by far the largest
part of this white population. They,
however anxious, can not of them-
selves command the means or the
opportunity to educate their chil-
dren. Consequently, a very large
proportion of these 30,030 children
of schooj agp, increasing in number
up in i
ship. This js not the fault, but'the
misfortune, of these residents of the
Territory. The evils that will come
of the indifference to this situation
can not be measured. Summing up
the results of the year’s work, the
The Indian laws in force in the
Territory and the Indian courts
which administered them have givpn
place, with k few unimportant ex-
ceptions, to lgvys corresponding to
tbo«e of Arkansas on the same sub-
ject matter, and baye been made
applicable to all persona in the Tw-
ritory, without flistinctiop pj yafe

ister and United States officers are
to enforce these laws. Provision
has been made for the allotment of
all the tribal lands of the Territory
equally among all its citizens, at-
tained as to nearly all of them upon
terms agreed to by the tribes by
popular vote. If the agreement
with the Creeks be ratified, as is ex
pected, this will be true of all ex-
cept the Cberokees; and as to them
it has been provided by statute. By
the agreements and the Curtis act,
the many thousands of white resi
dents in the towns unable heri t> fore
to obtain title to the land on which
they have built their hornet, and
sometimes expensive business
houses, can now purchase at a fair
appraisal these lands. Whatever
rights, civil or political, are enjoyed
by the citizen resident in any terri-
tory of the United States, the same
rights are now secured to the citisen
Indian and largely to the white res-
ident also in the Indian Territory.
The report refers to the difficulty
of making up a citizenship roll of
all the freedmen claiming rights un-
der the treaties of 1866 with the
respective tribes, and of all their de-
scendents born since the date of
these treaties. Neither the Choc-
taws nor Chickasaws have ever kept
an account of those made freedmen
by that nation, nor kept any trace
of them since emancipation, the
tribes persistently ignoring them.
