Ho also refers very decld dly to tin "Tomfoolery" of tho Se quoyah movement and declare It a scheme to prevent statehood of any sort. Tho Mter, dater at Indianapolis, follows: My Dear McGuIro: On my return from my vacation Shlpp (Boverldgo's secretary who vis ited Oklahoma at tho time) told mc all about your mngnlflcent statehood convention and had many pleasant things to cay about you. You need have no fenr, Oklahoma and Indlaa Territory combined Into ono stato will bo admitted as a single American commonwealth at tho com ing session of congress. By the way, what does all that "Tomfoolery" mean over In the Indian Territory? Write mo 'about It. it looks to m Uko a scheme to prevent statehood cf any kind.

BEVERIDGE STATEHOOD JOINT STATEHOOD THE ONLY KIND CONGRESS WILL GRANT. The Senator In a Letter to Mr. S. T. Icdsoe Tells In Very Plain Lan guage What May be Expected of Congress This Winter. lndlancpollH, Ind., Oct. 5, 1905. My denr Mr. Bledsoe: I have your letter of September 27th. I d.) not iiHHUiuo to speak for anybody li lt myself. And thus speak- tig ,it Is mv emphntlc opinion thnt tho bill makliK Oklahoma nnd Indian Ter ritory one state under tho namo of Oklahoma will pass both tho houso ind the iitinte, nnd becomo a law wry early iho next session. Certnlnly no bill making Indian Territory a ncniirnte state has tho slightest chauco of passage. Most ,assiiredly It ought not to hav This question lias been horoiiehly debated by tho peoplo ot the two TorMtorles nnd overwhelming ly decide 1 In favor of tho only wlso and ration.il coiirse ino reunion ot the two Ttriltorlos under tho original Imundnrlo and tholr admission whon thus reunited as ono splendid Ameri can commor.woalth. At the last session of congress an overwhelming mnjorlty of both tho house nnd aenato wero for tho propo sition to unlto Indian Torrltory and Oklanma and admit them as a slnglo state. 1 think thnt even n larger ma jority will bo In favor ot tho samo thing the coming session. lieu In nubile llfo aro not Biirpiised at scheme such as you descrlbo tho separate Btntehood plan In Indian Tor rltory to b. Answering your question us to my opinion as to what effect such manipulation will havo on tho next congress, I answer that I think It will have no effect at all. Certainly It would nvl have tho slightest effect upon myself, and I imagine othor son- ntors and representatives will feol tho samo way about It. Ah 1 h'io said beforo this wholo subject ha.i been debated not only In tho Terrlto.ios, but In congross for nearly four years, and wo havo dls- rujsod ol.tborately every posslblo pha30 of this matter. There Is not a stnglu clement of tho situation that has not germ gono over In committee and nilbltr.illv itiilmloil In llm ooniln or house. Alf of this resulted in tho Houso bill of last session known as tho "HnmiJron Bill" which I tnko It ror granted tho hou3o will quite early after congross convenes. Thero Is r.ot a slngTtr rrasbn against miming umnnomn and Indian Terri tory ono splendid stato nnd every rea. son of statesmanship demands tho ad- mission or tins stato under Its original boundaries. I do not think congress Is likely to bo thrust backward and forward upon mntters of great nation ul policy by any locnl schemes or plans. For It must bo remembered that tho admission of a stato is a National at fair. Tho cntlro American peoplo aro Interested qulto as much as Uio poo plo who live In tho Territorloa. Tho stato when admitted Is thero forover. It. Is, thrcforo, a proposition which concerns not only tho peoplo now liv ing In the Territories, but nil of tha peoplo In tho Unllcd Stntes who aro living now or who will bo living In a thousand years from now. This mnkes It dear how temporary and local considerations can not bo taken Into account In matters ot this mag nitude. It shows how tho desires of some men to securo tholr own selfish ndvanceme.-.t or to Turthcr their own political ambitions Is a matter of loss than no weight at ull In determining questions ot such vast magnitude and eternal Import. In conclutlon I can say that It Is my Htm conviction that Oklahoma will bo ndmltted at tho coming session of congress consisting or tho now Ter ritories of Oklahoma and Indian Ter ritory, and that no bill which proposoa tho ndmlss.cn of either territory ns n soparato stato can possibly bo passed. It Is absolutely suro that such a prop osition ns that would bo fought to '."'f a maJr't' of tho senato. With kind regards and best wlshe". I am Very sincerely, ALBERT J. BEVERIDGE.
