not believe that it would do any

Mrs, It. M. Honry has returned

Tho npproacbing single state
hood convention at Muskogeo has
aroused intense interest in the
Chuse throughout tho territory.
Every hamlet is adding its voice
in tho general cry for political
freodom, and the resultant com
The following letter rcceivod
from W. S. Moloney, of Bluejacket,
is a characteristic expression of
sentiment in regard tctile most vi
tal question beforo tho peonlo of
tho Indian territory today:
Sir: I wish lo wrlto another let
ter on tho statehood queetion,,as it
seems that this is becoming one' of
the most leading questions of the
day in this territory and Oklahoma.
I read in Saturday's Dally Chief
lain the interview with some oi tho
prominent citizens of Vinita, and
I must say that Dr. 1 rozeo voiced
ray sentiments about ns well oh if
I bad said it.
Two years ago 1 wrote an article
(or the Daily Chieftain advocating
single statehood, and it woe copied
by some of the territory papers,
yet everybody in this Dart of the
country was opposed to the view I
took on the eubiect, ns far as I
know, co I, therefore, claim tbo
distinction of being tho first man
in thjs part of tho lerritory to pub
lically advocate single statehood,
I can now say that my viows on
this queetion havo not changed in
the least. W. E. Haleejl says tho
Oklahoma Indebtedness is what
he objects to. Now in my view
this 1b the only logical argument
to bo advanced. Yet while we
admit that Oklahoma has a terri
torial indebtedness or over one
million dollars which, of course,
would become the indebtedness of
the new Btate, yet while wo take
into consideration that Oklahoma
is a fine new country, and has at
Ibis lime most of the institutions
of Btate such ns the university,
normal school, colored high school,
the asylum and stale buildings of
other kinds, and that most all the
lurid now in Oklahoma is taxable,
it is easy to see that she would pay
tho most of tho laxeB.
The Indian territory is too small
to make a healthy stato, as taxa
tion would bo too high. Wo will
supposo that Congress should
make a state, out of tho Indian ter
ritory, with most all, if not all, of
ilB lands nontaxable, what would
be the rato of taxation? Would it
not be almost prohibitive?
We, the people of the Indian
territory, und especially the prop
erty holders, should look ahead at
tlieao things and not allow our
selves to become bankrupt when
we oan easily prevent it. Any or.e
knows that it would cost as much
to build all the institutions necer
sary for each Btate as it would for
both if combined. The peopla of
tho Indian territory would
have to pay tho looal debts ol Ok
lahoma, but only the stato debts,
and only our proportional part of
thorn as per valuation by neaosa
ment. Wo would have our eohool
districts, townships and counties
all to ourselves, and this is good
onough for any one, unless it be
some aspiring politician who
thinks ho oould be elected to soma
Now, of course, tho more states
the more ollices, hut io tho major
ity of us our expectations -do not
run that high. The faclB are these,
politloa should not be considered
statehood talk. This is a
great sluing ah Texas, Kanvas, M'S
S.virl and Arkansas. We do not
want any Rhode Island or Dela
ware out west, but give us a largo,
healthy state where a majority of
the people will not bs ollico hold
ers, but good, steady business
men and farmers. Bear in mind
that no stato has ever been enlarg
ed after once admitted into tho
union by congress.
Now, let us lay aside all preju
dice and partlsanism and take a
business vlow of this matter, and
all advocato singlo statehood and
ask congress to admit the twin ter
ritoticB into the union next wintor
as one stale, and then the new
state would soon become one of the
richest and most progressive of
any of the states, and I cannot see
any logical reason why this should
not be done. W. S. Maloney.

BLOCKED WITH BEEF,
Katy Meat Train Leaves Track
Several hundred yards of beef,
well skewered with the wreckage
of fifteen refrigerator cars, littered
the Katy tracks near Atoka Thurs
day morning and blocked traffic
on the road for several hours.
This lavish waste of succulent
tenderloins and filets resulted
from tho breaking of a flange on
one of tho cars, on a north bound
meat train enroute ..from Texas to
Kansas City. The car careening
derailed the following meat repos
itories and when, what was left of
the train came to a stop, fifteen
cars were splintered into assorted
kindling and their contents scat
tered along the tracks.
Traffic was blocked on the road
until late in the aftornoon. The
train crew escaped without injury.

The intolerable political and
commercial conditions existing in
the Indian territory, have aroused
the citizens from a lethargic nc
ceptanco of their enforced bondage
and they will demand remedial
measures from the coming Con
gress. Statehood is accepted as tho ono
solution of the vexing questions
confronting tho territory, and or
ganized effort will bo made for its
accomplishment. Tho general
sentiment is for statehood of any
character in preference to a con
tinuance of present conditions.
To obtain the sentiment oi the
cllizens of Vinita, the Chieftain
obtained the following expressions
of opinion from several of tho rep
resentative men of the town.
That tbero is an unanimity of
sentiment is shown in the follow
ing expressions of opinion:
Dr. M.Fiazee. "Certainly lam
in favor of a sincle stato. Okla
homa belongs to us anyway. It
was ours before tho boomers got it,
and when we are given statehood
we want it back ogain. Ono big,
strong state is better than two
puny ones. Let us go in at once
and secure Btatehood and get out
of tho bands of the politicians In
both territories. We ought to be
able to carve out a good constitu.
lion and an able government from
the two territories."

tions that vex them and for the vo
lution of wbich thoy can now only
suffer and wait. The right of rep
resentation has been won by the
people at such a coat of blood and

cannot see how any one can un
derate it to such an extent as to be
opposed to statehood. I btpe

unsatisfactory but are almost in
tolerable. Statehood is our only
remedy and I stand ready to assist
in any movemont to that end."
W. IL Darrough.--,'Whl!e I am
opposed ton union with Oklahoma,
indications are that the Indian ter
ritory will finally be absorbed in
to a single state and I am willing
to abide by the will of tho major
ity, as the peoplo are usually
right. My principal objection to
a union with Oklahoma is on ac
count of the droughts that lerri
tory suffers at intervals. They
will injure the credit of the entire
state, and it will be another case
of 'bleeding Kansaa.' I think the
question should be put directly to
the people, as I have little faith in
tho Muskogeo convention accom
plishing anything. If the people
indicate that they want single
atatehood I say let itcomo."
