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

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

socttre. The unexpected happened. The
more than half million white -people In )

In the. convention that the Sti.OW In-

the matter was again taken up by th.

after mature deliberation we have con

ability be draattc along about the time
we had reset for th reunion, mu
threatening to keep away large num
ber of our people- from all ov-r the

to honor onrelt by honoring those
