Whereas: lodiaa Territory and
Oklahoma are contiguous terri
tories having, climate, soil, pro
duets and resources of an allied
and supplemental character, the
surest, strongest foundations for
the bomogenious state govern
ment; and tbe early development
of the boundless resources of the

ment would be assured: and
Whereas: Oklahoma is a dnlvi
organized territory of the United
States having enjoyed thereunder
the blessings and benefits of no
parelleled progress and prosper
ity, till she is now almost ready
for admission into the sister hood
of states and
Whereas: Indian Territory
presents conditions and ills no
precedented in the history of ler
ritorial government in the United
States, baviDg a population of
400,000 people, with no self gov
ernment whatever, a population
sufficient to entitle us to two
Reprecanatives in Congress but
having none: a people without
political status and denied all
political rights, whose progress
is retarded, whose business is
demoralized and whose future, as
long as the present conditions
exist, is without promise; and
- Whereas: We believe that In
