OF NEW YORK.
CHARLES W. FAIRBANKS
The people of the Indian Territory would welcome
statehood at the coming short session of Congress with
cut-stretched Mands. Single statehood, of course, we
mean, lor there is hardly a corporal's guard of double
jtaters left to proclaim the heresy of dividing that an-
cient imperial domain, known as the Indian Territory,
into two commonwealths. It is a foregone conclusion
that when statehood does come it will be with Oklahoma
.Mtachedto us. We know of no kind of political skul-
duggery that can prevent this end. In the first place,
it is manifestly right, and in the second place, the peo-
ple of this nation have found eut that it is right, and we
consequently have an irresistable force behind to put
this newest aud most resplendent star on our flag The
astute Baily may want two state8 in order, as he hopes,
to increase the number of Democratic senators; there
may be others who want such for reasons of pride or
prejudice, but the great thinking moving army of Am-
erican people, who believe in fair play and justice,
and who do things, say that we should have single
rnd immediate statehood, their reasons for such arc so
plain" and patent thai it seems puerile to enumerate
The wealth and population of these two sections are
lar greater than that possessed by any territory ever
r.dmitted to the Union, and it is greatly in excess of
that of perhaps a half dozen states that have been in
the Union for years£ Besides this, so far as develop-
ment is concerned, our people have only been picking
?he sands from an inexhaustable sea of wealth. Let
statehood be but proclaimed and the tide of wealth and
immigration that will set in for these borders will amaze
the world; only a small per cent of our firming lands
have been touched by the plow of the farmer, our great
m?nes are practically undeveloped; where we support
thousands now we can maintain millions.
Let every man, womafi and child put their shoulder
to the wheel and demand immediate statehood for Okla-
homa and the Indian Territory.
course adds that the canal should be built
now that the route is secured. Still his
party, only a few months since, opposed it,
with all the vehemence that masters of the
English language could command.
He offers remedies for the Trusts, i. e.
remedies that will foster and maintain them.
He favors a reduction of Governmental ex-
penditures, but he is silent on the question
of reducing the standing army or dismantling
our navy, and these, as all men know, are
the expenses he has reference to.
He grows very eloquent on the Independence
of the Fillipinos and says they should
be granted freedom the same as the Cubans.
So they will, Judge, in the appointed time
and when their Republican friends see they
are fully eligible to receive that great boon.
He favors a higher development of American
Citizenship, Civil Service, and a reclama-
tion of the arid lands of our country, but
who does not favor this?
On the whole the letter is a cunningly de-
vised appeal for power. It virtually says ' 'we
were wrong in 1896 and 1900 but give us a
chance now tor we have reformed." The
people will reply in November that "we
can't afford to swap horses in the middle
of the stream, we are willing to let well
enough alone, and that we are decidedly
unwilling to trust our destiny to a party
that changes its platform with every change
of the moon, a party that has ever been a
party of followers and not leaders, and
whose sole aim is simply to rule or ruin."
Judge Parkers's letter of acceptance was
given to the public on the 26th inst. In
the outset the Judge apologizes to the Am-
erican people for "lack of space" to discuss
all the issues before the public. However,
enough space is occupied for us to see and
know that his letter is only an endorsement
of the St. Louis platform so no apologies
are necessary. Tariff reform and Imperial-
ism is his shibboleth and he says that "the
people of the United States stand atthe part-
ing of the ways." We agree with him and
we also think the people will follow the leader
that has been tried and not found wanting
and who beckons us on to prosperity and
happiness at home, and prestige and honor
The people know what a Democratic prom-
ise is and for this very reason they are go-
ing to take the old travel-beaten road trod
by Lincoln, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Harri-
son, and McKinley and thereby escape the
treacherous path over which Cleveland led
them when they were blinded. Tariff re-
form was the issue, they remember, that
wafted Mr. Cleveland into power in 1892,
and the unholy Wilson tariff law was thrust
on us and the wave of depression came.
Now they seek to blind the people and
again practice the same trick. But the
people are too wise for that game, Judge.
On the Panama Canal he says that the
methods by which the route was secured is
a "source of regret to many" but fails to
say whether it is a source of regret to himself
or not. In fact he is non-committal, but of
A WELL-EARNED VACATION.
On account of wishing to visit th World's Fair at St.
Louis, Judge Dickerson has cut short his term of Crim-
inal Court at Tishomingo several days. This is per-
fectly right and proper, for Judge Dickerson has work-
ed almost incessantly holding court since his appoint-
ment some four months since. By the way, he is giving
great satisfaction to the people of this district, they
recognize in him a capable, fearless and just official.
We predict that he will be a power for good in building
the foundations of our commonwealth that is soon
Citizens of Pauls Valley have organ-
ized a company with a capital stock of
85000 to prospect for oil, coal, gas
and artisian water. The stock was all
subscribed by local capital and no
doubt the enterprise will prove success
ful as Pauls Valley people usually go
after things in a way that get results.

SPECIAL effort is made by the publishers
of THE DALLAS SEMI-WEEKLY
NEWS to give a full and complete
service. In fact it covers the field included
in Texas and the adjacent States and Terri-
tories both by a general Associated Press
service and by its own Special Paid Corres-
pondents, thus giving quick and unsurpassed
service for the Southwest in general and the
Territories in particular. This feature, in
addition to its fine AGRICULTURAL and
LlVE STOCK page and other specially
edited page for the family, makes THE
DALLAS SEMI-WEEKLY NEWS a
most useful and interesting paper to the
farmers and stockmen of Oklahoma and
Indian Territories. You can now get The
NEWS in connection with the Pauls Valley
Sentinel for the small sum of $1.75 a year
and get the LOCAL NEWS and GENER
AL NEWS too at small cost.
