PAULS VALLEY, IND. TER., THURSDAY, MAR. 2, 1905.
THE PROPOSED STATE
The Comparisons are Interesting
and Show Wonderful
Washington, D. C., Feb. 23.—The
debate in the Senate on the statehood
bill developed more . information con-
cerning the territories from which ;t
proposed to carve new state0 for the
Union than wao ever before in the
possession of the public without re-
course to encyclopedias and geograph-
Much of the same straw may be
thrashed over in the pending struggle
between the Senate and the House.
The following points are therefore
gleaned from the arguments to give
the facts for ready reference concern-
ing the territorial situation.
The bill as passed by the Senate
provides for one state to be formed
from Oklahoma and Indian Territory
combined, ana a second state to be
formed by the admission of New Mex-
ico alone. The bill as passed by the
House and agreed upon in Republi-
can caucus provides for two states to
be formed by combinating Oklahoma
with Indian Territory and New Mexico
Oklahoma contains 39,030 squire
miles and Indian Territory 31,400
miles. Combined, the state would
have an area of 70,430 square miles.
Arizona's area is 113,508 square
miles and New Mexico's 122,580.
Their combined area would be 235,-
600 square miles.
The proposed state of Arizona would
be as large as all New England, New
York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Dele-
ware, Maryland, West Virginia and
Iowa to New York. tion of Utah, adjoining state, were illi- ANNOUNCEMENTS.

Comparisons with Texas show that
it is farther from El Paso to Austjn,
the capital, than it would be from any
point in the new state to any possible
capital that might be chosen.
It is twice as far from San Diego,
Cal., to Sacramento than it is from the
western portion of Kansas to Topeka,
the capital, and almost twice as far
from the western portion of Kansa sto
Lincoln, the capital.
Senator Beveridge argues that the
area of the proposed state would be
of 77,650 square miles.
OKLAHOMA AS IT WILL BE.
The appended table compiled by the
South McAlester Capital will give the read-
er a pretty good idea of what kind of a
state Oklahoma will be.

There was a splendid service at the
methodist church on last Sunday. The
Mrs. Birdie Crisp visited Tishomingo sermon was delivered by our presiding
elder the Rev. Lamar. His subject
was the four kinds of soil found in the
human heart upon which the gospel
falls, the beaten ground, the stony
ground, the thorny ground and the
good ground. It was presented in an
instructive and pleasing way, being
last listened to by the largest congregation

this was, in a long time.
