It often happens that men do that which hastens that which they wished to delay or delays that which they o sayed to hasten. This, in all proba bility. Is what will bo the result of the Muskogee statehood convention. Many of those Interested In the move for a two-Mate contention, wore planning to prent any action whatever by the member of congrew. They hoped to carry tlu people of the Indian Terri tory with them In a mighty wave of rnthuslaam and thn orente a mlghty worklng force with which to defeat Joint statehood and the white people know that Is the only form possible to socttre. The unexpected happened. The more than half million white -people In ) the Indian Territory took so little part In the. convention that the Sti.OW In- dlaiu got more than halt the delegates , thp Aayt of yay wore at WOric and completely di initiated the conven j with a view of making those meniora tloc Th Indians have alwa- opposed I We days In. the history of our town. . .lw .j i , ,u.lrl but hy rensonof the fart that ii was wntehood and now are making their j by .t, ,lol,, af, tht. laat stand agattiat tn nituoiuiion oj j tribal goiernment and acceptance of the white mans government, -imp work is already done.

The objection) they raise R union with Oklahoma are baed on a tnlsconeeptlon of conditions htrv and of the character of the people living In this portion of the future 4at. Thl will be made perfectly clear to members of congress. Suppose, however, the Indians were able to convince congre that It would work to their dltaihtintage to be thrown Into the midst of a state with a million and a half people at this time.
