Report of Governor
Ferguson Treats of

to IB A. Hitchcock secretary of the
interior made- las: September has
been printed occupying IIS pages of
printed matter. It forms an exhaust-
ive review of the lesources and devel-
opment of Oklahoma In his report
Qovernor Ferguson v'gorously advo
cates the admission of Oklahoma to
statehood. Of statehood ho says:
"Oklahoma Is entitled to statehood
entitled- to it now. Thero tore in tho
territory G3000 intelligent Amorican
oltlw who nro deprived of tho right
of nelf government. A conservative
estimate of the wealth of Oklahoma
places It at 400 million dollars. Thero
are seven educational Institutions of
higher learning under the control of
tbe territory besides numerous high
schools and collages under tho con-
trol of religious denominations. Our
people aro in evory respect entitled
to that which Is Jear to tho heart of
every progrosslvo Amorican the right
to 'govern themselves.
"Against this proposition there can
lie no logical objection. Oklahoma has '
the Intellect the wenlth the moral
force the energy tho natural re-
sources tbe levolopmont already
achieved and the i.ron'ne of a splen-
did future sufficient to justly entitle
her 10 careful consideration and con-
gressional action. No logical renson
cm bo urged against hov early admis-
sion Into tho sisterhood of states."
