CONCURRENT RESOLUTION.

Whereas, The frequent commission of crime in the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations, within the Indian Territory, contiguous

to the northern borders of this State, often affecting the personal and property rights of our own citizens, demands a more efficient and prompt remedy than is or can be afforded by any existing Federal jurisdiction, by reason of their great distance from the place of holding the courts; therefore,

Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, That the Congress of the United States are respectfully requested to provide by law for a term of the Federal court at some accessible and convenient point within and near the northern border of this State, with jurisdiction of offences committed within said Territory.

Resolved, That our Senators and Representatives in Congress be furnished by the Secretary of State with copies of this Resolution, and they are urgently requested to advocate the passage of a law providing for such Federal court, with jurisdiction as aforesaid. Approved.
