RUSSELL ON STATEHOOD.
Says People of Two Territories Will
Draft Constitution Second to None
Stlllwell H. Russell of Ardmorv.
one of the foremost criminal awyers
as well as the biggest Odd Fellow In
Indian Territory Is nt tne Turner. "I
feel so good over the prospect for
stntehood for the two torrltorloa nt
this time, that If 1 were In the good
old state of Texns. 1 would go to
some quiet nnd cool place and order
me a quart of the vory best Rotirbon
and celebrate, although I have not felt
tho Influence of liquor for twenty
yenra," he said Tuesday night.
"When do you think stntohooil will
go Into effect?" he was asked.
"A constitutional convention will
be oalled Immediately nnd the people
of the two tenitotlea will demon
st rate to the outside world their abil
ity to draft a constitution which In my
opinion, will he the moat tierfect In
strument that was ever written al nny
one time In the history of the United
Stairs Why should we not. when we
have constitution of forty rive other
states to glrnn from, as Well as some
of thu brainiest men In the world to
aaslst In drafting the same.
"We will elect n fnll compliment of
state and county otHcora nt the gener
1 election this fnll ami January first
will mo the new state of Oklahoma In
full force nnd effect.
"Somo there are," snld Mr. Russell,
"who say that the odd dolegttte which
Is provided for from the Osage nation
will give thu RepubltcnnH tho ma
jority and they will tnko ndvnntnge of
It. This Is absurd, the southern part
of Oklahoma Is so closely allied with
tho Indian Territory Interests, also
men In public life In both territories,
nro so eager to put tho new statu In
tho lead of all other states, thnt they
will oast nsldo nil of their personal
matters, nnd work purely for tho In
teresta of tho now stato."
"Your nnine has been mentioned for
tho senate from the new stnto," n
Phoenix ruitortor remarked "What
navo you to say?"
"It Is n vory oasy matter to men
tlon it man's ntimu, nnd nnothsr thing
to put him Into tho United States sen
ate," came back tho nuswor.
"Whnt do you think tho political
complexion will be of tho now Blnte?"
"That Is the hardest nut to crack
thnt enn bo handed to nny one, ns
thoro Is not n precedent from which
one enn bo guided. Thero Is no jkiII
tics oxcept In the towns of tho Indian
Territory, nnd u majority of them
hnvo elected their city olllcors with
out regnrd to ikiIIUcs, so no man can
figure vory closo ns to how the state
will go tho first tlmo politically.
