It with a territorial form of goTtraattBt almllar .o that now la operation In Oklahoma. Arizona and N'w Sfaxieo. One of thaaa Mill dl rtcinl that th Indian Territory be called Jefleriwn territory. Il ai not until the last enngreaa that any oiSclal recognition was made of the Indian Territory's claim to statehood. In that congress the proposition to give all the territories statehood became the iMtue and It has continued In that form since. Oklahoma baa been demanding statehood almoet Mnce Its creatloa as a territory. The Srtt Oklahoma state hood bill waa lntroluceI in the house by Colonel I). A. Harvey, the first del aaate that territory sent to congreM. It was Introduced In the first session of the Plfty-seoond congress. It had been prepare! by Sidney SI. Clark now of Oklahoma City, a former mem ber of the house from Kansas. .Mr. Clark bad been chairman of the state hood executive committee appointed by the Drat statehood convention held In Ontbiie In l$tl. It provided state hood for Oklahoma atone. It at tracted little attention in congress and no eerlOMs effort was made to pass It. It served the purpose, however. which waa to launch the statehood proportion upon Its legislative voy age. The speaker ixferred It to the commlttae on territories, which barely considered It and never reported it A statehood bill waa not introduced in the senate at that f union, but in the following session the Harvey bill waa introduced by Senator I'erklna of Kansaa. It proceeded no further than :h committee on territories. In the next congress the people of Oklahoma reti'tid some enoourarcment from the fact that a statehood bill was fav .rubly acted upon by the commltuo on territories, which reported to the hojHe a measure Introduced by "Fight Ing Joe" Wheeler of Alabama, chair man of the committee. The fight for Htatehood was then started vigorously by Dennis Flynn. who had come to the house as Oklahoma's delegate, tho Kansas senators and other members .f congress who had become familiar with the wonderful progreas made u that territory. The llrsl decided action on sUiUt l.ood was takeM In 1101 when tho lionno passed a bill Introduced bv Hep r. K. ;ilatlve Knox, of Slastachtisctta, chairman of the committee on terri tories. Heart no bad been held by that committee at which delegations from Oklahoma nd the Indian Terri tory had made statements presenting th resources of the two terr.torles, their iiopulatlon and other facts sup porting their contention for recogni tion. The impression in congress at that lime waa that Oklahoma wanted statehood and that the Indian Terri tory wanted some kind of govern ment other than that of the Interior department and the courts. The Knox bill was killed In the senate. Since than the house has been committed to the statehood proposition and tho real struggle for recognition of tho territories has been in the senate. Six years ago the fight for the ad mission of Oklahoma aa a state be came complicated by the contest over the admission of Arlsona and New Mexico. At that time the public was not familiar with the splendid prejwr illness of Oklahoma for statehood and there were advocates for statehood for theo titer territories than for Ok lahoma. The fate of the territories from this tlnio on were Indlssolubly associated. Combinations for und against admission were formed and tho supporters of statehood for Okln noma nnd Indian Territories found It liuiosHlble to froo thomselvos from the Now Slexloan-Arlzona handicap. Ily the beginning of tho presont ses sion the progress of Oklahoma for statehood was everywhere recognized TI-.o tc-ae cotBmitt' ob tern-'. ta beeo divided ao a to perm wpanate wote oa OkUfeosea and Is-i, Territory. tte MTttorla would ha beea a4aMttd to itottoood rractict wltaoart A t-tttt-n la Health.
