Railroad Said to be Preparing to Dis

A New York dispatch contains
the following: "By the aot of Con

land in tho Indian Territory wore
conditionally coded to the Mis
souri, Kaneas & Texas railway.
This land has not yet fallen into
the absolute posesBion of tho rail
road, but will change hands dur
ing tho next few weekB. It ia un
derstood that the lands will' bo
offered for public sale immedi
ately after and will be disposed of
by the railroad exaotly as was
that in KanaaB durinp tho last few

not sell its modest clains in the

bably not tomorrow. There are

Washington, D. 0., Aug-. 15.
There 'seems to ba a unanimity of
sentiment among members of con
gress and sejValors arriving in the
city in regard to the admission of
Oklahoma territory into the union
at the next session gof congress.
But one question provokes divis
ion of opinion, and that is the
manner in which the admission
Many men who have already
given the question careful thought
and study are in favor of admit
ting Oklahoma territory and add
lng thereto the Indian territory at
a county, which shall bo absorbed
by the state as rapidly as the
tribal forms of government in the
latter territory become extinct.
Others argue in favor of the ad
mission of Oklahoma now and the
absorption of the Indian territory
later, in the event it is found do
eirable and expedient when the
tribal forms of, government cease
The latter plan, however, bas
but few advocates, and is based
largely upon political grounds.
Oklahoma at present is republican,
though its political complexion in
the event of statehood would be
doubtful The Indian territor
ie admitted, Is oTrw.eti
lory should b added to Oklahoma,
and tbe right ( suffrage extended
to its people, it would give tbe
democratic party a large majority.
It is, therefore, argued that Okla
homa should be admitted separ
ately. This view is entertained,
however, by tbe extreme politi
cians. Representative Curtis, ot Kan
eas, who was recently in Wash
ington, and who, by reason of IiIb
knowledge of affairs in tho two
territories, and his positioain the
house, will have much to say
about the manner in which admis
sion shall oocur, when asked what
plan he thought would be adopted
by congreeB, and whether admis
sion could be secured at tbe com
ing session, said:
"I think it very probable that
Oklahoma will be admitted aa a
state beforo the adjournment of tho
next congress," he replied. "As
to the manner of admission, that
Is a question yettnbe decided.
My own opinion ia that Oklahoma
should bo admitted with the In
dian territory annexed thereto as
a county to bo absorbed by the
state as fast an the conditions in
the various Indian nations will
permit. It is useless to say that
tho Indian teiritory is too large
for a single county, whon tbo tri
bal forms of government are
abolished, and the people of the
territory are prepared to share
tbe responsibilities pertaining to
stale government. This could be
easily arranged. Aa fast as tbe
tribal forms of government becomo
extinct a new county could be
created, or. several counties, as
the necessities oi tho case might
require, which would beoomo a
p(ut ol the etalo and tbe people
therein given the full right of clti
zenihlp, In the meantime the
national government would con
tinue to exercise the same super
vision over tho members of tho
five oivilUed tribes that it does
now and bas for year over the
reservation Indiana In tho states.
The plan is entirely feasible and,
I believe, will be adopted,"
If this plan should be agreed
upon, as it now seems probable it
will, Indian territory must remain
in its proeont condition for at
least four years yet. At the ex
piration of that lime the liraltftlion
for the existence of the Choctaw
and Chickasaw nations will have
arrived and their ttibal forms of
government will become extinct.

Hon. Thos. B. Needles was tho
only member of the commission
present and bo acknowledged ser
vice of the same. The eradication
of the namo ofevory negro from
the rolls, may bo the ullimato re
suit of the null instituted yester
day. While the names of the
negroes that the court is asked to
restrain the commission from en.
rolling are specified, a ruling may
bo obtained on a far more import
ant point during the hearing of
the suit, that will effect tbe status
of every freedman.
In case tho opportunity doeB
not present itself, a later suit will
be filed that will attack tbe rights
of the Ireedmen an & body, to any
interest in tho national estate. It
is well known that before final
partltionment takes plaoe that the
nation will make a desperate effort
to recover their lands from the
Ireedmen, and tbe present case
may probably present tbo oppor
tunity to inaugurate Ihe battle.
