Claims Made fcy tha Territory's Oe nor sad Ukdlhend m IUAdnMk The Oklahoma statehood convention assembled in Kingfisher will appeal to congress at the opening of the session for tho admission of tho territory into the Union as a state. The governor of the territory furnished the convention with statistics to justify the claim for statehood. He estimates tho population of the territory, including tho Chero fceo strip, at 231,000, and he sustains this estimate in a way which is not wholly nnsatifactory. The value of the taxable property of the territory is giv en as $U,0(0,(iO( nnd the territorial government is five from debt. There are several hundred churches in the ter ritory; there are SO banks; there are public schools, and there have been 2,372.000 acres of farming land taken up. Tho various kinds of grain grow there and the ordinary kinds of fruit Cotton also can be grown. "Oklahoma," says Governor Renfrow, "possesses vast resources and. with its genuine Ameri can inhabitants, it will make a state cjoal to any other in tho Union." If tho governor's estimate of the pop ulation of the territory is correct, Okla homa ia entitled to admission into the Union as a state. In his estimate, how ever, the people who settled upontke Cherokee strip a few months ego areip, eluded, and tho strip is not a part or tho territory of Oklahoma. It belongs properly to the territory, and it mnst iie united therewith brbre the bill for Hie admission of Oklahoma can be passed through congress. We observe that Secretary Smith of tho interior depiirttnent snakes no refer ence to this fact in his report, when ex pressing the hope that "Oklahoma may speedily nssnmo the responsibilities of statehood." It will undoubtedly, how ever, bo brought to the notice of con gress. Kew York Sun. Maine Kleptomaniac. A tradesman in a Maine village had missed articles from his stock from time to time, and at length the clerks saw a woman take things she did not buy and pay for. This furnished tho desired opportunity. An advertisement in tho paper ver tho merchant's signa ture said he had positive proof that "some of the best ladies" of the town had taken articles from his store, and if matters were not fixed up there wotrid bo a rumpus. This was only three weeks ago, and so far four vonien hare lieen ia to"6i'ttlo up," with possibly more to follow. One woman came from au adjoining town to admit that she took up an article one day with the thought of stealing it, but repented and put it back again. LewLston Journal. Gcaraitsa Care.
