Lucius Fairchild and the Commission applied to Iowa on October 18, 1889 and were rejected. [25] In May 1890, David H. Jerome`s commission returned to negotiations and notified the tribe of the October grazing lease. Jerome tells them that the president offers individual farms and has offered to take the surplus land that has resulted. Chief William Tohee discovered that Iowa preferred to keep its reserve for future generations. Jerome warned that a non-consent would require the government to enforce the Dawes Act. Iowa felt that the allocation and money were not good for the tribe, and they were still waiting for the past government funds that owed them. Many iowans were concerned about the forced assimilation of their children into white schools and were suspicious of the government. The Commission reaffirmed the threat of forced congressional powers.

Jefferson White Cloud announced that Iowa would sign the agreement. [26] On 26 September 1892, the Commission opened negotiations with Kiowa, Comanche and Apache at Fort Sill. [119] Jerome held an opening presentation, and Quanah Parker asked specifically how much money per hectare and what conditions were offered. Jerome turned to the details of the money. Other members of the tribe preferred to postpone negotiations until the contract on the medical box expired. At the next day`s meeting, Parker Jerome continued to insist on financial details, as Jerome avoided discussing the money. Sayre explained the overall offer of $2,000,000 and the per capita distribution. Parker asked again how much per hectare. [120] Sayre had no answer, and Parker asked him how he got to $2,000,000.

To this, Sayre replied: “… we just advise. Parker said he had heard about the price difference per hectare between the different tribal agreements. Lone Wolf added that many wanted to postpone until the medical contract expired. [121] Park J objected. He gave a lengthy judgment and discussed in detail several hypothetical cases. But the substance of his disagreement is in paragraph 21: ratification. This agreement is only valid if it is ratified by the United States Congress. June 26, 1890, The Absentee-Shawneee in Shawneetown signed the agreement with absentee Shawnee (1890) and donated 578,870.42 Acres (2,342,6055 km2; 904.48503 sq mi) for $65,000 (less than 11 cents per hectare). [37] Big Jim of Upper Shawnee refused to sign the agreement. [39] Shawnee`s remit was carried out in accordance with the Act and limited to 650 allowances, including pre-agreement assignments. If additional allocations of more than 650 have been made, $1 per hectare of land should be deducted from the $65,000 paid to the tribe. The members of the tribe had until January 1, 1891 to choose their assignments. If a member did not make the selection within that time frame, the selection for them would be made by the local agent until February 8, 1891.
