Are the Statements of Guthrla Citi-

It cannot bo evaded or ignored.

AT ENID CONVENTION.
On this annlrarsary ot the opening
of the territory the Democracy of Ok-
lahoma takes pleaseuro In recording
Its genuine pride In tho marvelous de-
velopment and splendid achievement
which has characterized tho first thir-
teen years ot tho history of tho great-
est territory this nation has evor creat-
ed. In this short period the territory
has been transformed from tho home
ot the cow and tho coyote into tho tree
homo of a halt million sturdy Intelli-
gent and progressive Amorican citi-
zens owning three hundred million
dollars worth ot available assets. Sure-
ly such a people aro entitled to Amer
ican herltago of self government And
we here and now declare our firm con-
viction that wo are entitled to the
rights prlvllogos and responsibilities
of American otatehood.
Nor are wo unmindful of our breth-
ren of tho Indian territory. Appre-
ciating tholr splendid capacity and
wondorful rosourcos and achieve-
ments wo deslro union with them in
ordar that Jointly we may build up
the greatest of tho western statos. Wo
thoreforo favor the admission into
the federal union ot Oklahoma and
ic Indian territory as a slnglo state.
And In view of tho fact that Oklahoma
has a splendid land endowment for
Its schools wo favor an adequate pro-
vision for the people ot the Indian
territory either In lands or other re-
sources so that both territories may
bo placed upon terms of equality in
tho maintenance and support of their
Resolved That we arc unalterably
opposed to any encroachment upon
tho magnificent endowment of our pub-
lic schools and colleges. And we rec-
ommend that the final disposition ot
the school and other lands ot tho ter-
ritory bo left to the peoplo of the sov-
ereign state In constitutional conven-
Resolved That wo condemn the
present school land board of the terri-
tory for its harsh unjust and oppres-
sive admlnlstraton ot the school land
office and we pledge our party to pass
a fair and equitable school land law
Just alike to tho lossees and to the
people of the territory.
We favor tho early enactment of a
law by the federal congress granting
free homes to the residents of the now
country and wo denounce tho action
of Delegate Flynn In excluding that
country from tho recent freo homes
Wo favor Immediate statohood
along the lines laid down in this plat-
form. In order that we may escape the
curse of carpet-bag government and In
order that the people may substitute
honesty economy and efficiency for
extravagance dishonesty and spolia-
tion ot the public under which the
territory has been robbed and the un-
fortunate Insane mistreated in order
to benefit a tew favored Republican
gratters and under which the people
ot the new country havo been burden-
ed with extravagance and extortion
In the administration of tholr local
We condemn the unpatriotic and un-
just attempt of Delegate Flynn to de-
prive the new counties of Caddo Co-
manche and Kiowa from participation
In the constitutional convention lot
Oklahoma in tho event ot its admis-
sion to statehood.
Wo favor an organized county gov-
ernment for tho people et the Osage
We endorse the separate school law
enaoted by the last legislative as-
ssembly In so far as It covers tho
ground and upon the creatlou ot a
new state wo demand that the people
thereof shall be permitted to dovlse
and fashion their own educational
system without federal Interference;
and although we favor equal educa-
tional privileges and facilities for
white and colored children wo are
opposed to mixed scnools.
We demand a Just and equitable leg-
islative apportionment measure at the
hands ot the present congress to the
end that the thousands of voters in
the western and southwestern coun-
ties of tho territory may have proper
and adequate representation in tho
coming legislative session.
The Democratic party pledges Itself
to promote in every way the applica-
tion ot tho system ot primary election
tor the nomination of candidates and
the settling or party principle and we
avor the passage ot a suitable prim-
ary election law for the legal introduc-
tion ot such a. system into this terri-
tory. Believing as we do that the legiti-
mate aim ot government Is to pro-
mote the greatest good of the people
we favor public ownership of muni-
We renew our allegiance to the
principles ot the Democratic party as
enunciated in Its national platform
adopted at Kansas City in 1900.
