Of Indian Allaire, Says Congress
man Sherman, of New York,
will Prevent Congress Taking
any Action Beforo an Adjust
ment with Government,
Tho chantio conditions of Indian
unfair s will prevent tl.o question of
statehood for tho territory being
considered by tho next congress.
This is tho stated opinion of Con
gressman Sherman, of Ne,w York,
who Ib at the hoad of Indian legis
lation, contained in a letter to a
federal ofliclal in the territory.
Tho adjudication of tribal affairs
will precede, not follow, statehood.
To the request for his opinion on
tho questions of absoluto title to
allotments and the chances for
statehood, Mr. Sherman replied bb
"There are eome questions, I un
derstand, that the tribes wish set
tled, and I am also informed that
tho time for tho holding of the al
lotments lor a term of five years 1b

lion to this, as congress would de
sire that the Indiana hold their
land, or a proportionate eliaro of
it, fur a while at least.
"You ask about legislation as to
statehood for Indian territory this
coming winter. This, I do not
think probable, as congress just at
present does not consider the ter
ritory in shape for etutehood and,
furthermore, when it does come in
jit will probably be tacked on to
"There is about to be a bill in
troduced cutting Indian territory
up into counties aud establishing
county seats, but- whetbor it will
meet with buccssb is bard to tell.
' Congress ia anxious to settle In
dian territory affairs on account of
tho big expense and annoyance,
but It Beenie tbat they aro making
little headway, aa eaoh year shows
big appropriations and more work
arising in the Five Tribes.
"It seems as though tho work is
progressing as well as could be ex
pected in tbe Indian country, and
tbat there ia a good prospect in
tho next few years of eooing mat
ters wound up, but in the mean
timo until it is done Congross will
find Indian territory a vexicg prob

Oklahoma Delegate Tells How
'Smoothly" It was Conducted.
Dolegala Dennis T. Flynn, of
Oklahoma, was in St. Louis re
cently unloading himself of some
warm bouquets. This was dedi
cated to the Secretary of Interior:
"Too much credit cannot bo
given Secrotary Hitohoock for the
successful manner in which tbo
opening was inaugurated and
carried out. Secretary Hitchcock
seemed to take unusual interest in
tho opening of the new countries
and I imagine it was a sort of pet
idea with him."
Tho delegate did not mention
the lact thut a number of his con
stituents thought likewise and bad
risen to remark that the Rjck Is
land railroad, another "pel" of
tbe Secretary's, was nurtured in
the eatno kennel. In speaking of
expected statehood, the garrulous
Dennis side stepped the Indian
Territory, but had this to say con
"I hope to secure statehood for
Oklahoma in tbo next ContaesB.

our population we will have 500,
