The population ot the Indian Terri tory Is practically 500,000, and tho wealth ot tho five nations combined Is creator than that of any othor coun try in oxiitenco of the same slzo which Is not under a protective government or a government of Its own. Tho In dian Torrltory, as It Is today, em braces ovor 35,000 squaro miles, and Is not only ono of tho most fo'rtllo re gions in tho South, thus making It ono of tho host agricultural countrlos to bo found, but undorncath its fortllo soli lie vast bods of coal, asphalt and oil, which make Its natural resources of doublo worth. Our population Is largo onough already to placo a fam ily on nearly ovory quarter section of land in tho Torrltory. Think of such multitude of human souls without law and without voice. Can wo afford to remain so longor? Two hundred thousand boys and girls aro growing up within our boundary lines, and no system whoroby they may bo educated,. save by municipal taxation, which reaches and benefits only a meager p6r cent of them. Thousands of theso boys and girls aro growing to man hood and womanhood in absolute il literacy. Crimes aro being commit ted in -every portion of tho Tcrlrtory ovory fow days, ns a result of our not bolng allowed a government whoroby wo can ovorcomo such circumstances. Whllo congress still continues to pass canal bills, oleomargarine bills and dlv crs othor bills, without .oven so much as even Investigating the needs of tho people of tho Indian Territory. No doubt could wo pross our claims and our needs beforo -jongross in tho proper way, wo could got a favornblo hearing dtirUjjj tho short session of congross this year. There is but ono way to do It, and that Is to Bond a dolegato from tho In dian Territory who would sco that our need. nrc put clearly before congress and kept thoro until action la taken on thom. Whether he be allowed a voice or not.
