ADAIR, BE SENSIBLE. �Late dispatches from Washing ton gives the information that t he memorial passed by the late Cherokee Council setting forth the terms of an agreement wilh the U. S. government has at last reached the federal capital^ The Secretary of the, Interior wants several minor changes- in that instrument, and wants the Cherokee delegation to yo to Washing-ion with power to agree to these changes, and if they can* do this the Secretary is ready to take up the agreement and submit it to Congress. There could be -no reasonable objection to granting the Secretary's request, as our p-'opfe will have a vote on the agreement- tliat is made by and between Congress and tnV delegation before it can possibly be binding on our people Then as sensible; people, reasonable people, let the coming extra, session of tho Cherokee Council so instruct our delegation, to the end, that we may get our matters-t.his Chi rokoe estate-all fixed up before allotment takes place, or before we are forced to allot, so that each Cherokee oitizen "will get his or her allotment, in both lands and monies. Our people have sense, let thvm use it. Chief Buffing ton has done all a faithful servant could do for his people, and his acts and efforts should be Appreciated. The man or �j,'3U Who now lag and- hold buck are no patriots-but are-^dema-' gogues.

Can Draw on Funds. . Washington, Feb. 15.- The various offices of the Interior Department which-are in any wise concerned with the'handling of Indian' affairs were full of busy men when your correspondent oalled there today. Chief Buf-fington was with the first assistant secretary. Inspector Wright,wis making his report or giving some, additional information- about the condition of Cherokee affairs, and even Judge Smith, chief of the Indian Territory division, bad not time for more than a word or two. in which to oxpiess his surprise that there should beany question of immediate relief-for Cherokees in destitute circumstances, and referred to the amount of the national fund. He said that his 'office had' heard, nothing of any destitution among the Cherokees on account of the drouth or for any other cause, and while of oourse, the department is aware that .ttie severe dronth last summer resulted in the failure of crops in certain sections of the Cherokee Nation,* yet as the national fund of the tribe amounts to $1,428,543.21, which canbe^drawn upon, for relief in surh'cases, there oould -be no reason for any 'suffering^on the part of any members of the tribe from such cause, as the heads of the Nation have it iu their power to draw on tins fund in accordance with the y)rovisio"hs of the Curtis act, through tne agent at Muskogee. In addition to the mtmnal fund there is of course the asylum fund of $64,147.17; tho orphan fund, of $374,659 31 and the schooljuud of $851,919". 21, bat none of these could be drawn upon for this purpose except under unusual conditions. All of these funds bear an annual of 5 percent. As this is the existing state of affairs it �will hardly be pecessary -to call { f >r a ^'ipi 1 ir subscrii^jJtt.

As is well kffown, foy several years there have been Itopt up with strong memberships two republican olu'ps in the town of Stilwell, namely, "Old Flint''and the "Stilwell." This caused more or less friction and almost bitterness at times iu the ranks, � But such was wrong, and by a united effort and fraternal concert of action among all concerned, these two rival clubs both voluntarily dissolved and "passed into history.'' Whereupon a general 'mass'meeting of republicans was called by the former presidents of the now defuuot. olubs, and signed b,y about forty others, which resulted in a huge gathering of the faithful followers of Lincoln, Garfield, iv'cKinley and lioosevell, from miles arouud, at the office of Dr-Water� on Oak Street, last Saturday at. 2 p.m. After much informal talking, the assemblage, was called to order by Luther Kyle, who read The" call and briefly stated the object ,of the meeting. Upon motion, B. C Kiucaid was chosen temporary chairman aud Geo. W. Smith temporary secretary. R. B. Stanu acted as temporary interpreter. On motion jjerma-uent organization was ordered. The chair appointed a committee of five to draft and report at once a Constitution 'andBy-laws. While this.committee was out the meeting . was' eU'terlaiheU/ by speeches from different loca leaders. � " Constitution and By-laws were reported and adopted. At the suggestion of Mr.. Brewer, this union club is to bear the sigriiii-aant, historical and beloved name of McKinley-the full official title being,"The McKinley Republican Club, of Stilwell." As many members do not. speak Englishman interpreter is added to the customary'quotaof officers. Everything was interpreted all the way through. It was decided by motion to vote for officers of the club by the secret ballot. � jjfeminatious for president were; /V�$jpfed by ibe enairinan; to be ia fi'dpr?* The following namqw were placed iu nomination for this important- office: H.
