It is said that the Kreat Krupp
sun will carry a shot sixteen miles.
This country produces 80 per
cent of the cotton crop of the world.
Railroads in Hungary, owned
by the government, charge less
than one cent a mile.
More than two thousand Ameri-
can Indians were received into the
Catholic church last year.
The total number of postoflic.es
in operation in the United Htates
on January 1, 1804, is 68,S06.
Corporations in thin country
owe 12,000,000,000 to Europeans.
The principal and interest will have

The Arkansas Valley railroad
has had its time extended for con-
structing an addittonal lino of rail-
way in the Indian Territory.
Parties in Guthrie have been
swindling people In the south
by selling them lots in Cherokee
City. The lots are not worth the
paper the deeds are written on.
The matron of the county in-
firmary at Findly, Ohio, is charged
with faidlnir an inmate with boil-
ing w..terand afterwards applying
a mustard plaster to his bald bead.
Machines have been invented
and large factoi ies erected, where
artificial cotlee beans are made
from acorn Hour and gum arabic,

Oklahoma has six Episcopal, 16.r>
Methodist, twenty-five Baptist,
twenty-four Congregational, twen-

Ci.yde Mattox, at Wichita,Kan.,
on the 16ih inst., was found guilty
of murder in the first degree, and
escaped from jail the same night
by removing a bar from his win-
dow cell. He was captured at mid
night at Yat< s Center, Kan. A re
ward of $1000 was offered for .lino.
A"! othor issues seem to be of
minor importance when discussed
in connection wit'.i tneabove. The
question is being agitated on all oc-
cnslonH where two or mrtre congre-
gate. Statehood, and statehood
alone, seems to be in universal de-
mand, with the exception of a few
greedy politicians, who are always
willing "to pitch their tents and
swing their kettlas where there is
political plunder to be had," and
the usual crowd who are rated as
camp-followers and retainers. The
letter of Gov. Fiahbaclc, of Arkan-
sas, to President Cleveland; the re-
port of Attorney General Olney to
congress; the records of the courts
at Paris, Tex., and Fort Smith,
Ark.; the occurrences narrated
daily in the papers published
in the Indian Territory, aside
from numerous other causes,
all go to show that the federal gov-
ernment should take some docided
steps, and that ImmeJiately, to blot
out this dark spot from the map of
the country. The rights of the In-
dians can and will be protected.
Whites in the territory already out-
number the Indians by a large ma-
jority, and the only persons among
them that oppose statehood are
squawmen and leasers; ami the
arguments they advance iu behalf
of their opposition smacks more or
less of selfishness. While some of
the cattle barons do not claim
that they want the earih, they
certainly intend to assume control
of aa much as they can feuce in.
The question now is, shall the
B. I. T. (Beautiful Indian Terri-
tory), one of the most fuvored sec-
lions on God's footstool, continue to
be controlled by the squawmen and
indolent Indians; a menace to i "
neighbors, for society will never
become settled until the people
have permanent homes; or will
congress take such action as will
enable the two territories to com-
bine and form a state. Such u state
would be a grand one indeed; we
would never bear such sneering ex-
pres'ions of "sage brush" or "rot-
ten borough" applied to it. When
spoken of it would be termed "The
Great State of Oklahoma." The
man with the hoe is now awaiting
patiently, homeless, to enter the
promised land, and in a brief time
those large pastures, devoted ex-
clusively to the raising of cuttle,
will be subdivided and covered
with happy and contented homes,
and the raising of babies instead of
calves will be put into practical

T.J. Johnson, chairman of the
