Prejudice Could Not Convey a Figure
That Would Work Against the Re.
appointment of an Honest
Man Hosea Townsend.
Tho news was all over town this
forenoon that tho names of HoBca
Townsend and William I). Johnson
had been sent to tho senato for con-
firmation for reappointment for tho
respectivo ofhees of 1 United States
Judge and United States Attorney.
It is a fact that no other two men
could bo morn honorably honored
in this district.
Thoro lias boon stories told that
would to tiso a Shakespearian phrase
"raise tho hair from thy bald spots"
against theso men but "honest work"
tho kind that Teddy's on to wins. No
secret societies no dull uncouth mix-
ture goes. Former record nnd gentle-
manly principles will win in faco of
doubting "Toms." No wo have not got
a cincli on tho appointment of cithor
one but wo know that it is tho safest
cinch in tho country.
"Hurrah for Townsend and John-
sou." RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED.

ritory In general non-partisan con-
vention assembled nt Muskogee I. T..
on December 10 1901 for tho pur-
pose of ropresontlng to tho congress
of tho United Statos tho wishes and
views of tho business men nnd of tho
pcOplo of tho Indian Torrltory In re-
gard to statehood do hereby udopt the
"Hosolvod That wo nro unalterably
opposed to any political union with
the Torrltory of. Oklahoma.. Wa have
been living for many. years under n
totally different form of government
and a sudden change of law would bo
disastrous. Wo dcslro tho' right of nil
freo men to pass laws when 11 can
bo properly dono for our own solf-
government without tho control or In-
terference in nny way by tho peopjo In
habiting nny other stato or Territory.
Wo bellovo tho peoplo of Oklahoma
should havo tho samo right and wo
havo no doslro to interfere with thorn
in tho oxerclso of tholr own self-government.
"Itesolvod That as soon as it may bo
dono without violation of tho obliga-
tions of tho United States government
to tho Indian peoplo und as soon as
tho settlement of tho land dlstrlbu-
tlons of tho Indian Territory can bo
nicompluhrd so that nil citizens mny
be on nn equal footing in the nnttor
or taxation wo desire 'nnd Wo earn-
estly request tho. right of self-government
be granted to us sepntrnto and
npart from nny othur Stnto or Terri-
tory In the Union- Wo earnestly re-
quest thnt tho Unltod States keep ab-
solutely good faith with tho tndlnr
people who bought tho lands of the
Indian Territory from the government
of the United Statos. They paid 'for
those lands In money and ns part pay-
ment for the lands they gave up east
of tho Mississippi river they received
tho solemn plodgo of tho United
States government In numerous treat-
ies that the laws of no Stnto or Tor-
rltory should bo extended over this
country without their consent. They
have not consontcd nnd nro unani-
mously opposed to tho extension of tho
laws of Oklahoma over tho Indian
Territory and they aro unanimously
opposed to nny polltlcnl union with
Oklahoma. Wo earnestly request a.
speedy settlement of tho citizens' rolls
nnd allotments In pursunnco of tho
agreements with tho Flvo Civilized
Tribes Wo represent thousands of
peoplo born In ovory Stnto In tho Un-
ion. For oxnmplo over 9000 of our cit-
izens wcro born in Illinois many
thousands woro born in Indlnnn Ohio
Pennsylvania nnd other Eastern States
and wo earnestly prny for tho co-operation
of the representatives of thoso
States In securing to us tho blessings
of liberty independence and self-government
as speedily and practicable
as consistent with tho considerations
abovo set forth.
"Hcsolvcd further Thnt tho con-
gress of tho United States is hcroby
petitioned to make provisions for the
election In Indian Torrltory of n del-
egato to ropresont Indian Territory In
congress to tho end that tho Interests
nnd rights of the peoplo of tho Indian
Torrltory mny bo presented to con-
gress by some ono authorized to speak
for them. Wo believe thnt our peoplo
now number C00.000. n population
greater thnn that of almost ovory stnto
at tho tlmo of Its ndmlsslon as n State
of tho Union. W nro having a strong
Immigration to tho Indian Territory

per annum. Tho nrea of our Territory
is larger than n groat many of tho
States of tho Union already admitted
being nearly us largo as Indiana and
nlmost as largo as flvo of tho Now
England States combined.
"Resolved further That tho propo-
sition to nllow Oklahoma to mnko n
constitution with out giving us a voice
In tho framing thereof which
tho Indian Territory should

a gross InJiiBtlco nnd revolt
Ing to every prlnciplo of freo nnd en-
lightened government. Wo wish to re-
cord our unutterablo opposition to

Territory by town meetings to endbrse
the above resolutions so "thnt the sen-
timent of Indian Torrltory may bo sub-
stantially set forth to tho complete
satisfaction of congress to tho end
