Washington, Dec. 4. Senator
Fairbanks of Indiana introduced
inte the United States Senate a
bill today to admit Oklahoma as
a state, with two representatives.
The usual provisions for a consti
tutional convention and the
grants of lantis for state institu
tions are made. ' '
Guthrie, Ok., Dec. 4. Senator
Fairbank's measure providing for
the admission of Oklahoma with
her presents boundaries, into the
anion, does not meet with the
approval, it seems,' of Oklahoma.
It is to gnard against the budding
of a small state that the present
agitation regarding single state
hood, that Is, a state composed
of both Oklahoma iuhd the Iudian
territories prevails, 'it pointed
out that while there are thousands
who want a state of Oklahoma
alone, or separate, statehood, the
leaders of this movement are for
the most part politicians. They
argue that the Indian territory is
weathy and can well. bear the bur
dens of taXatiou. Shortly before
leaving for Washington, Delegate
Flynn, is an interview, said be
favored a etate of Oklahoma with
in her present boundaries, with
out waitig for Congress to attach
Indian territory lands as allot
ments are made. It is believed
here that Mr. Flynn is interested
iu Fairbrnk'a meaenre, since the
bill introduced today is thought
to be along the same lines as the
statehood bill introduced in con
gress last year by Mr. Flynn.
The Barnes administration is
emphatically in favor of single
statehood and the governor's
adherents will a' tend the South
McAlester convention in force.
The passage of Fairbank's bill
means the deposing of Barnes.
Acting Governor Jenkins paid
I believe the Fairbanks bill is
what we want enacted1"
Charles Filson, spokesman for
Governor Barnes during the bet
ter's absense, said.
"The Fairbanks bill will hardly
pass. It is based on Flynu's
measure and prescribes a small,
ungainly state. So far as as two
representatives nre concerned,
tnat is about right and iu accord
ance with the congressional ap
portionment. However, with oue
big state made of Oklahoma ai d
Iudian territory- the reapportion
ment would give the new state at
least six congressmen."
