MGUIRH ijELIEVES JOINT
STATEHOOD BEST FOR INDIAN
The presence of the Indian has been used
a> an argument by some, for .separate .-tatehoou for the
Indian Territory. One of the most remarkable portions
Iof the address of Delegate MeUtfire during the delmte
;on the statehood bill in the house, was that part in which
he presented inciratrovortftble arguments as to why the
m Indians should not have their Indian state Sequoyah,
*•*>. but should be brought into the state of Oklahoma.
|After saying that statehood means representation on
90.40 the floor of the house from the Indian Territory, that
it means Jjonest, capable and legitimate representation,
4.00 which would foil many plans which have hitherto been
fostered in the Indian Territory for the purpose of indi-
vidual and material gain* Delegate McGuirc continued:
"If we propose to civilize the Indian, if it is the policy
and purpose of the American government to better his
condition, the quickest method, the safest and surest
plan to success would lie immediate statehood for those
people. The Indian by nature is averse to the habits
of the white man. Everything that the white man has
and everything that he does is not looked upon by the
Indian with favor, jfnd unless the habits of the white
man are forced upon him he will never accept them.
They do not accept our Christianity readily, but the civi-
lized Indian of today, is the one who has been thrown
with the white men, white society, and surrounded bjj
eivilized people, where the methods of the whites pre-
vailed and predominated as against the customs of the
Indians. If you would civilize the Indian you must
give him a white citizen for a neighbor. If you would
have him adopt the customs of the white man, you
should put the customs, habits and tendencies of the
white man within his reach.
"We have many object lessons of this kind in the two
territories. The Indian most •civilized today in Okla-
homa is the Indian who has been most with the white
man. There are two or three tribes in that country
that wear the blanket to this day—the Osage Indians
and the. Kiowa, Comanche anil Apache Indians. The
reason these tribes wear the blanket is because they more
more than any other Indians of my country have been
isolated from the white race and its influences for good."
A biographical encyclopedia by Colonel Mann would

'FARMING FRONTIER" IS
BEING PUSHED WESTWARD
"The farming frontier is being pushed westward
says Pete Drummond in the Enid Eagle in commenting
on the recent influx of settlers into western Woodward,
Day, Dewev and Beaver counties in Oklahoma and into
the Texas pan-handle. And Drummond is correct to
a greater extent than most persons believe.
The soil in that section of Oklahoma and l'cxas is in
many eases as rich as then-is anywhere on the Ameri-
that|can continent. Yet some years there is not a suffici-
ency of moisture for certain crops, and in most •years
there is not enough unless 4hc farmer is familiar with
the proper methods of cultivation for that section. N et
American genius can make up for deficiencies in water
supply as it has conquered many obstacle^ thaf seemed
greater. The farmers in Western Oklahoma are solv-
ing the problems that are to lie met in Western Okla-
homa. They are prosperous. They know the crops to
plant, the time to plant them, and" the way to tend them
to make them yield in Western Oklahoma as they do
where there is more humidity.
Kaeh year Oklahomans are more successful cotton
raisers. Why? Because the northern Inan who set-
tled here each year adds to his knowledge as to the best
wavs of raismg cotton. The same condition prevails
in western Oklahoma. Kaeh year the settlers learn more
of the conditions there and fortify themselves against
the time when the drought shall come. In 188(5-87-s8
there was a movement utto Beaver county equal to the
one now. But the people then were new not alone to
Beaver county, but as a rule to the entire west. When
the bad times come U'tween 1HH8 and 18'Jl, they failed,
pulled up their stakes and left.
But there is no danger of a repetition of that time.

STATEHOOD COMING OKLAHOMA.
Statehood'M coming. Oklahoma!
Wait u little whole,
In your best go forth to meet her
Greet her with a smile.
Long you've waited, Oklahoma!
(Aiming sure at hist?
Give a friendly hand to greet her
Thick not of the past.
You've become a comely maiden
Plnoe you did apply,
Krsl knocked at the door of congress;
Then you were so shy!
And you knocked so ver ytirold,
Scarcely heard there;
And th< congress gravely told you:
"Miss, you're .very fair.
But you're such a youthful maiden, ,
Still In tiie short drses;
\VUIt till you have grown older,
Then your prayer we'li bless."
You the next year knocked the louder,
At the great bronze door.
Hut they sent you home in sorrow,
As they'd done befoje.
There each time by crutl mandate.
You have come back home
With your face all bathed In soft tears,
Prom your heart o'« r-flonra.
Now they say they'll admit you
To this Union great;
Cut your leading strings in gladness.
Make of you a State.
None of them had made such progress,
Kre she was a State;
Took tuch high rank on admission;
you'll at first be great.
With a milton population.
And such people grand.
Proudest State In all the Union,
State of the Fair God's Land.
When once there, you'll be a power,
Pride of the Southwest!
Represented by wise Statesmen;
AJways send your best. .
8tatehood's coming, Oklahoma!
Wait a little while;
In yv ur best go forth to meet her;
Greet her with a smite.
