of seven years ago. It exceeds that of

that of Kansas In that year. And tho
area of both territories combined Is
le.s than that of any of tho States that
wo havft named. Not only has tho In
creaso of population been very remark
able, but no State on Its ndmlslou has
had Ki large a population or so dense a
imputation, Tho difference Is so very
marked that Oklahoma may be said to
stond In a class by Itself. As tliu

twonty-thlril. next to Kansas, and al

where It should hold that rank In IHIO.
