THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA.
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.
