ved on Cherokee residents for the
alleged illegal removal and hauling
ot wood and timber from lands
owned by the Eastern Band of
Cherokee Indians, and not for alleged
illegal acquistion of the l%nds

who have supposedly acquired and
settled on lands that belong to the
Indians was confused with the serving
of the recent warrants, and
