CONVERT 10 THE MOON Bill
LEDBETTER 3AY8 HE WILL SUP.
PORT THE MEASURE.
Believes It Furnlfchts the Only Prur
peet tor Relief for the People-
Competent Man In Congress
Would Please All.
W. A. l.edbeyer who for the paat
three weefcs line been In WnghlhgUin
attending to legal. affairs arrived
home yesterday morning. When ap-
proached yesterday by the Ardmore-
He. and asked how he found mntwrs
of Interem to the Territory at Wash
ington he said:
"The court cHlienehlv controversy
has not yet been settled. The sup-
plement! tfeaty which th Joint com-
mittee of the senate nnd house bad
under consideration contained pro
visions which iiraetWally destroyed
the Judgments heretofore rendered
admitting parsons to dtUettsblp In
tha Chickasaw and Choctaw nation!.
The committee agreed o amend the
trtiUr w h Ui aUow judgments tc be
set aside only In cases where the
Judgment was based upon perjury or
procured by fraud on the part of the
applicant or his attorney; but this
agreement seems- to have been vio
lated in the report of the committee.
and the citizenship court created In
the treaty Is given much more Juris-
diction and power to annul Judgment
than the friends of the court citizens
think It ought to have. This oHJeen-
whip court Ib to be composed of three
ltnl"p-ndcnt judges whose Jurisdic-
tion is confined to citizenship cases
nmi hn- term of office will expire
lit. .'inl i .'.1. 19o3. The matter' Is as
t In an unsatisfactory condition
au i it in impossible to tell what will
i.i' tin- n-mlt. but I believe by per-
i'int erforts the treaty may be
Him niled so as to work no Injustice
'iim the court citizens or defeated
With regard to territorial matters
generally Mr. Ledbetter said:
' When I left home a little over
three weeks ago I was opposed to
what Is generally known as the Moon
bill for the reason that I believed it
was a long step In the direction of
permanent separation of the Indian
Territory from Oklahoma and that
Oklahoma in all probability would
lie admitted into the Union as a
state during this congress nnd if the
Moon hill became a law we would be
held in bondage for an Indefinite time.
The act enabling Oklahoma to form
n constitutional convention provldos
that the state of Oklahoma shall con-
sent. In Its constitution by ordinance
Irrevocable that the Indian Territory
may become a part of the state when-
ever congress shall decide that It
hall be. If the bill passes the senate
In this condition (nnd I believe it
wilt). It is claimed congress would
probably feel committed to the propo
sition that there should he hut one
state. The Moon bill on the other
hand contains ho' essentially bad
provisions and. in Its present form
is the deliberate expression of what
the house territorial committee be-
lieved to be the best that can be done
for th Indian Territory under present
"Before agreeing to report the
Moon bill all other Mils pertaining
to the Territory ware given' due con-
sideration. The committee gad many
meetings and considered the Stevens
bill the new Curtis WH and the Quar-
rels. Scott or toper hill and agreed
to end finally did report unanimously
the Mooh bill which contains the
best provisions of alt the measures
which have been proposed for relief
of the Indlsn Territory. I talked to
nearly every member of the commit-
tee and some of them frequently
aud I have Invariably hew met with
the statement that the Moon bill rep-
resented the views of the house terri-
torial committee on the subject of
legislation for the Territory and" I lie-
Ueve Uie house Is Irrevocably commit-
ted to the passive of the Moon bill.
"It provides for n territorial legis
lature a governor sjorstary of state
superintendent of puhllo Instruction
and a dolegnte In congress and ap-
propilates 157.000 as a nucleus for n
school fund. It will furnish the peoplo
of tho Territory an organised local
government divorce them to a lnrge
extent from tho Intorlor department
and glvo them roprosontatlon in con-
Kress. With such an organisation
and a compotont man In congress re-
lief from tho prosont unsatisfactory
conditions will ho readily obtained.
"Tho valuo of a delogato In con-
gross enn hardly bo estlmntod by peo-
plo who aro not familiar with tho nc
tual conditions and routlno which ob
tain in congressional circles In Wash-
ington. Mr. Flynn tho delogato from
Oklahoma has been an actives and
persistent ndvocate of tho rights of
his peoplo and largely by bin efforts
provision Is made In the bill admit-
ting Oklahoma Into the felon for a
common school fund which will
amount to millions and millions of
dollnrs. Hundreds of thousands of
acres of public lands nro appropriated
to the Unlvorslty of Oklahoma the
Agricultural college and othor educa-
tional nnd charitable Institutions.
When this fact is considered In con-
nofftfSii. wltli the fact that Oklahoma
alroaurius a magnificent sclfdop f ifnd
derived lnrgqjy from tho ronts of
lands donated by the govtftiinilnt. It
would' soirf Hint congress' ought to
make a decent provision for free
schools In the Indian Territory. The
Oklahoma proposition Is supported
by Democrats ns well as Republicans
ami their supimrt to the measure has
been won largely by "th persistent
efforts of Mr. Klynn.
"Tile discrimination qgalnst the
Territory ' hat not been due to arty
want of Interest In the Territory but
rather to Hie fact Mist udbody lwa
been In congress to officially repre-
sent the people and because there is
no organized governmenUheirl to gib
llze and distribute a fchnol Tiind it
an organized school system.
"I believe Here lp a ebece V have
the Moon bill passed this session. It
will pass the etiMte if thpetl of
th Jerrltprjr win glv It jjbft .upport
toiwhlch it Is entitled. In all respects
It Hoes not meet my iddibuU. There
aij) some objections w St but' I be-
lieve It furnishes the only prospect
for relief for the people of the Indian
Territory and I Intend to give It
whatever support I eri'n. ' v '
fit Is Hie settled ooovifctlon In eon-
grass that the Indian Territory Is not
now ready for efoHShDod rfhd it Is
also the universal belief that Okla-
homa Is ready for statehood. Tho
proposition to Include the Indian Ter-
ritory In the bill admitting Oklahoma
was voted down In the house by at
least two-thirds majority the argu-
ment which prevails being that the
Indian Territory Is not now ready for
statehood. The men who voted
against including the Indian Terri
tory In the state of Oklahoma at the
present time distinctly announced
that they were In fnvor of giving the
Indian Territory a territorial form of
government with a delegate In con-
gress. The admlsr.lon of Oklahoma
and the establishment of a territorial
government for the Indian Territory
does not determine the quostlon of
single or double statehood; thnt
question will he left open for future
