First Installment to Open th Territory
KlxoriBiir.il, Ok., June 19. The first
installment of the ?U50.(XK) due tho
Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians under
the act of congress adopted March 3,
1891, went to Darlington yesterday.
The installment consisted of .V).000 sli
ver dollars, and four more of the same
character and magnitudo arc to follow.
Payment of the Indians will commence
at once. It will require the remainder
of this month and probably a portion of
Julv to complete the payment After
this the allotment of lands to these In
dians will commence. The allotting
agents have been on the ground, under
pay, for a month, waiting for the
work to liegin, but the Indians refused
to accept their lands, or have any thing
to do with the allotting agents, until
they had received their pay in cash.
It is estimated that the- allotting will
require from four to six months. After
this the great Cheyenne snd Arapahoe
reservation, embracing some of the
finest lends In the Indian territory and
consisting of 4,000,000 acres, will he
thrown open to homestead settlers.
The set of congress provided thst the
allotment of lands to the Indians should
be made in ninety days from the pasv
sge of the act March 3, 1691, and the
delay in the work is the occasion of
great dissatisfaction among the people
of Oklahoma and the western states
