, Washington, Dec. 5. Senator
Fairbanks said today that he be
lieved the bill which he has intro
dnced in the senate providing
statehood forOkiaboma would be
passed at this session of con
gress. Mr. Fairbanks said that
he had introduced the bill be
cause he thought the people of
Oklahoma were entitled to state
hood and because the platform
adopted by the Kepnblican
national cotnmitteo had declared
for statehood for the territories.
The general opinion in both bouse
and senate is that if any territory
isadmitted to the Union during
Mr. JlcKinley's administration
that territory will be Oklahoma.
The action of congress at the last
session in passing a free homes
bill which benefited Oklahoma
more than any other section of
the oeuntry is poiuted to as an
indication that congress is prepar
ing to take the more advanced
step of statehood for that tetrri
tory. Delegate Flynn is due in Wash-

by Senator Fairbanks is, "To en

The idea of Mr. Fairbanks and
other supporters of statehood is
that the new state, when admitted,
shall consitt of Oklahoma and,
later, Indian territory. In accord
ance with this idea the fifth sec
tion of the bill "That Congress
may admit into the Union as a
part of the proposed state the

The Money for the Indiana.
Washington, Dec' 5. The Sec
rotary of the Treasury sent to
day to Congress estimates of the
apprepriations required in the va
tious branches of the government
for the fiscal year ending June
30, J902 Among the npproprta
tious required in the Indian ser
vice is one for an appropration
of 1J million dollaas to carry out
the agreement made with the
Kiowa, Comanche and Apache
Indians, made last June. This
agreement provides for the pay
ment to the Indians of 2 million
dollars, but officials of the Treas
ury, when called npon to make
the flret payment, decide the only
one half million dollars of that
amonnt was appropriated by the
language of the act ratifying the
agreement. The secretary recom
mends that the balance, one and
a half million dollars, be appropri
ated at once.
