FOfi TWO STATES.
Robert L. Owen Is Stirring up
the Double Staters.
The following circular has been
sent out from Mu-kogee, by R, L.
Owen, with reference to the com
ing aiiti single statehood conven
tion, tu be held on December 10:
Muskook, I.T , Nov 27, '01.
The territorial convention which
meets on the IO1I1 of December, at
Muekogre, will be an impoitant
one in the affairs of the territory,
and its aciion will carry authority.
The debate should be interesting
and instructive and productive of
healthy public sentiment.
Personally, I oppose union with
Oklahoma on any terms for ret sons
I have publicly stated, but I truly
believe that "all the people know
more than eomo of the people,"
and I am anxious to see this con
vention ofsetnble tho best minds
of Indian territory for earnett,
careful and palriotio consideration
of tho difficulties before us. Out
of this convention should come
substantial public 'benefit The
question of what (he burden of
taxation would be under imme
diate statehood will be clearly
brought out, The effect of such
taxation in chilling and retarding
tho great immigration that has be
gun will be discussed. Tho prob
abilities of Btatehood coming the
sooner with or without Oklahoma
must be considered witti various
I trust you appreciate the im
portance of thia convention which
will speak with authority on the
subject of statehood fur Indian
territory, and that you will Bee
that your section is proporly rep
resented by your best business
men. Yours truly,
ROB'T. L. OWEN.

Senate BUI No. 2, providing for
the appointment of revenue collec
tors for the different districts to
take charge of all unsold intruder
improvements ond to collect un
paid installments on places already
sold, has passed both houses and
gone to tho chief. The bill taken
as a whole is a pretty fair bill.
Some object to it on tho ground
that 100 cents on the dollar will
have to bo paid on the places sold
that could have been paid for with
national certificates at CO and CO
cnts on the dollar.
The allotment bill has been
printed and will likely be taken
up F'iday. It is so voluminous
that several days will have to be
tdken to digest it. Some of the
non-progressives will fight tho
measure. All of the progressives
on both sides will support the bill
ftoj a few amendments are made.
Tho white man clause, giving the
1880 roll intermarried citizen a
right to pu -chase his allotment by
paying the appraised value', is
meeting with opposition. The
contention of those opposing tho
clause is that thero is no distinc
tion to be made with the '80 roll
intermarried man and tho one mar
tl4 since that time and up to the
JUlion Bill, No. 11, providing
for the dealing out of rations, will

into a commilteo from each dis
