Suit to Step Allotrmenf.
What promises to be a most
sensational and far reaching
suit in all the history of the
Indian government is now in
preparation by Attorneys Mur-
chison and King and Frank J,
Boudinot, representing some
Indian citizens and seeking to
set aside and annul the con-
gressional law of 1902, which
authorized the allotment of the
land among the Indians of
This action is taken at the
instance of the Ketoowahs,
who as a body have long been
opposed to the present law as
not according, to them their
full rights. They recognize,
however, that after some years
the allotment stage will be
reached and a division inevit
Their contention is that the
law was never ratified by the
persons having an interest in
the lands. They claim that
a vast majority of the votes
cast in favor of adopting the
allotment plan, were cast by
white adopted citizens and
freedmen, both of whose rights
to the land are denied and in
contest. They claim that only
a small percent of the Indian
vote was cast in favor of the
proposition, and that a vast
majority was cast against it
The suit is to be filed at
once in Washington seeking
to enjoin all further allotment
and to undo all that have been
' made. People can imagine
the effect ©t such a suit if it
Tw>o State Sentiment.
The following dispatch comes
from Guthrie, Okla., under
date of Aug. 23: The double
staters of Oklahoma are begin-
ning to sit up and take notice
because of the Indian Territory
statehood and •onstitutional
convention. The report in the
Journal covering the conven-
tion is being read carefully and
especially are they watching
the formation of working com-
mittees. The membership of
the finance committee "looks
like money to me," said a bank-
er today. An attorney ob-
served that the committee on
constitution ought to jet up a
"clever compilation, as there

are some strong men on it.
many people here are not es-
pecially infatuated with the
people of Indian Territory.
This lack of admiration seems
to be natural and is the basis
of sentiment for two states.
It was "availability" that
brought out the recent single
state convention. People here
want statehood even with In-
dian Territory added. , Many
prefer to have two states, be-
leiving that plan the better,
feeling that ea«h is quite able
and willing to assume the roll
of state. Should Indian 1 er-
ritory people show a big vote
for their plan, the prediction is
made that a double state con-
vention will be held here for
the purpose of voicing that
