FOR TERRITORY COUNTIES.
Delegate Dennis T. ,Flynn has
introduced a bill In Congress pro
viding for the division of tho In
dian terrilorv into counties. His
measure locates the county Beats
at Ruah Springs and Comanche,
on Ihe Rock Island, and at Pauls
Valley, DaviB and Ardmoro on tho
Sante Fe. It makes n prelty map
carefully platted in correct regard
to Flynn's friends, and is elated
for Borne blue pencil etching by
the committee on territories.

NO HORi: QUACK OR HOWL.
Duck Woir, the Creek, is dead
after 84 years in a blanket. He
unbosomed h's last howl at Eufau

quack, took '.igbt to the land of
hie fathers. With the passing of
Duck Wolf toe Ual of the sigueta
of the Echota treaty, In 1840, has
gone across the divido.
The opposition of Senator Bur
ton to any moasuro providing far
a final settlement of Ihe chaotic
conditions in the territory can be
depended upon. It is in such
transitory periods that the politi
cal grafter gets his books into the
very heart of a new country.
A poll has been made of the
new house committeo on territo
ries which shows a majority of
tho members in favor of single
statehood for Oklahoma and In
die n Territory. Tho committee
la composed of fifteen repreaenta.
Uvea and two territorial delo
gatos. Of tLu fifteen representatives
nine favor the ptoposltion of ac
cording statehood to tho twln-lsr-rilories,
while tho remaining six
are non-commltal. Only threo
mombers of tho commlttca are in
favor of double statehood.
Tho idea of making separate
states out of the two territories is
looked upon as illogical and dan
gerous. Tho committee it 1b feared by
tho ndvocates of immediate state
hood for the territory, will com
promise on Ihe Flynn bill, which
provides for the gradual admis
sion of the territory, as the lands
of tho jieveral IrlbeB are allotted
and individual patents s.xe issued.
The territorial measure of Con
gressman Moon, of Tennessee, is
opposed by the committee, who
do not consider a territorial iorm
of government necessary during
the transitory period.
From the expressions of many
of the leading members of the
house and senate, it Ib thought
that the Flynn bill, with some
inoMflcik, will pass this ses
sion oi oougresB.
The memberB of both branches
of congreBB, however, havo evi
denced on intention of bearing all
sides of the important question.
