"Of course, you know that my tea

Plans Will Be Adopted for Disposing
of the Subject Without Much of a
Fight Indian Territory and
Oklahoma As One.
Washington, April 13. "Tho state
hood bill will bo before tho Fifty-
eighth congress and somodcclslvo ac
tion will be takon Iipoaui5 said' Sena
tor Quay yestorday. Tho senator has
Just returned from a Florida trip and
will remain In Washington sovcral
days looking after personal and official
"I do not think that any deflnlto plan
has been decided upon," continued tho
senator, "as to tho form In which tho
bill will bo presented, but I am confi
dent that tho sentiment of congress la
such that It will bo Impossible to do-
lay legislation on tho subject through
another session. Oh, yes, I am aware
Uiat tho opononts of tho omnibus bill
havo an Idea, that it will bo rovlvod
In a formidable manner but theso gen
tlemen have missed their calculations
before, and there is no guarantco that
t'-oy would not bo disappointed again. I
would not bet surprised to find a scnli
mcnt In favor of legislation of this
character that will result In tho adop
tlon of somo generally accepted plan
for disposing of tho subject without
much of a fight at tho noxt session."
Senator Quay refused to discuss any
of tho compromise propositions that
were considered and rojected during
the closing days of tho last congress
It Is known that when tho bill was
sidetracked in tho senato it was with
a tontativo understanding that it
would bo revived at tho next session In
somo compromlso form.
Tho plan generally discussed is for
a union of Arizona and Now Mexico
as ono stato and of tho Indian Terr!
tory and Oklahoma as another. A
compromlso bill along theso lines
would havo been passed, it Is bellovcd,
had Maro Smith, tho Arizona delcgato
In congress, not opposed tho proposl
tlon. It is oxpected that this opposl
tlon wll bo partly withdrawn, and that
somd compromlso measure will bo of
fered that will bo acceptable to all
concerned and make a final disposition
of the .territories possible.

como as famous in a few years ns
When tho survoyo-s woro at work

lotment lines thoy were bo greatly Im
pressed with tho character of 8ulphur
Springs for a national park that thoy
presented tho matter to their super
iors on tho Dawes commission and tho

it to tho interior department. -In duo
tlmo tho department decided to mako
tho placo a government park and co
torod Into a deal with tho Choctaws

tains C29 acres and tho government
paid tho Indians $20 an aero for it.
Tho roscrvo takes in a part of tho old
town of Sulphur.
Tho dopartmont is now cloarlng the
