The Learned Oklahoman bays Ser quoyans Have no Influence and Have Admltttd that Their Plan Is Impossible. The Stnto Capital says: A. O. C. Merer, who has returned from Washington whore he has boon In the Interest of statehood, reports the outlook as excellent and declare 1 "Htulcnaod for Oklahoma and Indlnu Territory as ono state, and possibly for Arlionn nnd New Mexico, In ab solutely certain."

The bill would havo been re ported by this tltno had it not been that, In the caucus, thero were slxty fivo votes ngalnst tho omnlhuB bill. In regard to Oklahmnn and Indian Terri tories tho sentiment ns exprossed by the caucus was unanimous for single statehood. Tho dlBSontlng votes wore on tho Now M'oxico-Arlzona proposition, This will possibly dolay tho passage of tho bill to somo oxtor.t ns the? fight will be on tho Inst nnmed territories. Tho question will not en danger Oklahoma prospects howovor as tho sentiment Is to drop tho Art zonn-Ncw Mexico clause If necoisary and admit tho other two territories, Tho Sequoyah representatives havo absolutely no standing In Washington nnd their loader. Chief Pleasant Por ter, ndmltted to tho committee that statehood under their plnn was Im possible and that their efforts woro directed to tho defeat of any form ot stntehood. Tho .prohibitionists nro .Tinkliig a considerable fight nut Jungc Merer does not believe that nny prohibition clnuso nffoctlng the whole new stnto will be Incorporated In the bill. It is possible that tho sale of liquor will 'jo prohibited in tho present Indian Torrltory and in tho Indian nation? In Oklahoma. The more probablo way however, of solving tho question will bo that congress will rosorvo tho rlgAt to jontrol and prevent tho sale ot Honor to Indians. As soon as tho fight by thv proh bltionlsts was takon up tho Sequoyah supporters began to work for such a clause In tho hopo of getting congrms to boliovo that tho sentiment of tho peoplo wns so divided that th'iy fought upon tho different features ot tho bill. In this way tho Indians hoped to ho nblo to help defeat a'J statehood legislation. HUMMEL'S CONVICTION. Jury Finds Him Guilty of Conspiracy sentenced one Year and $500. Now York-, Dec. 20.
