WuoliliiKtnn, Nov. II. Thi' secretary
of thu Interior has decided to postpone
tho consideration of tlu plan tocoiiMill
ilato tho Oklahoma City nnil Guthrie
l.ind (lNti'lcU in Oklahoma until u thor
ough Investigation win he made Into
lint condition of nil tin- eight lunil dis
tricts of thu territory fronted ueder
former nets of congress. It litis become
apparent that there ure more hind dis
tricts in the territory than the land
olllco Inislnoss Justin and Hoerotiiry
Hitchcock dcouis It wlio and prudent
to take tho entire business up and con
sider It at one time rather than by
Commissioner Hermeun, of tho jjenerl
land olllco has been called upon for a
report Hhowin the condition of each of
tho eight land olllces In the territory
and o recommendation for the ocolMi
iiiunt of such laud hl-itricts which ure
found to be most centrally located and
convenient to tho-so homesteaders who
have not perfected titles to their prop
erty. Last week Commissioner Hermann,
In responco to a request from thu sec
retary, submitted a recommendation
for tho abolishment of the Oklohoma
land district and Its consolidation with
Outhrle, Manguni and l'.l Ileno dis
tricts. This is satisfactory so far as it
goes, but It does not go far enough.
Asa redisricting of all the olllees Is
rendered Imperative within the near
future, Secretary Hitchcock can see no
ad vantage gained in taking up this case
how and others later on. Such a coure
would only lead to confusion and prove
annoying and vexatious to the ollleials
of tho department.
As soon us tho information called for
from tho commUsioner, which cannot
bo furnished for several weoki-, Is re
ceived, the secretary will take up the
entire subject und bundle it in a com
plete and eomprohen-lvo manner. It
seems probable that thu three olllccs
abolished will lie those at Oklahoma
City, Kingfisher und Alva.
