today Mr. Llttlo of Arkansas the
ranking minority member of the Indian
committee addressed himself to the
conditions In the Indian Territory. The
anomalous condition there where TJ-
790 white men had no voice In the gov

torial form of government should ho
sot up thore.
Ho rovlowed tho recent great devel

dustry In the territory. With 150
towns nnd cities nnd wealth amount
ing to ? 50000000 he said thoro wore
80000 whlto children of school nge .nit
no schools. Such a condition of nlTalrs
he declared was an outrage. Ho be
lieved that tho territory was ready 'or

now confess that this Is not to be hop-

The truth Is that tho Indofntlgable

Mr. Flynn wants K.ime other Repub
