HIEF OF THE CREEKS SPEAKS
ON THAT SUBJECT.
Tho following article by General
feasant Porter chlof of the Crook
trlbo of Indians Is from the Muikogoe
Much has been said and talked In
tho newspaper columns miggeetlng
slnglo and sepornto statohood for Ok-
lahoma and Indan Torrltory. A bill
has paBBed the lower house of con-
gress granting statehood to ArUonn
Now Mexico and Oklahoma and Ib
ponding In tho Bonato for considera
tion at the coming sosslon of con-
grosB. llllls have been Introduced In
both branchoa of congress proposing
territorial government for tho Indian
Territory among others tho Moon
bill which has boon favorably report-
ed In tho houso of representatives.
Conventions havo boon hold In tho
Territory proposing somo law provld'
Ing for Uio nnnoxatlon of Indian rosor
vatlons to Oklahoma when mien In
dlan trlbo or nation shall through Its
council assent to It. Somo dlspogl
Hon will havo to bo mado of tho qucs
tlon as to whether soparato statohood
will bo given Indian Torrltory by act
of congress or annexation to Oltla
Tho thought suggests Itself that In
order to glvo Identity as to tho form
of states of all tho territories within
tho confines of tho United States It
will bo fitting and propor to proposo
an amendmont to what is termed tho
omnibus bill granting statehood to
Arizona Now Mexico and Oklahoma
providing an enabling act giving stato
hood to Indian Territory to tako effect
under tho dissolution of tribal govern
ment March 100C. This would scttlo
tho question and removo tho necessity
of a soparato statehood act for tho In.
dlan Torrltory to bo passed Bometlmo
within tho next two or threo years
nnd would glvo amplo tlmo for tho
general government to comploto tho
distribution of tho lands to tho Indian
trlbo owning tho Territory and would
glvo general satisfaction to tho noo
plo Inhabiting tho Indian Torrltory.
Tho annexation of Oklahoma of tho
Torrltory olthor ns a wholo or pleco
meal as has been suggested by con'
vontions held at different places In
tho Torrltory would only add nnothor
factor to tho comnlex nroblom that
Is now bolng wrought out In
tho Territory that is tho transform
atlon of tho Indian people from their
tribal instltutons to that of a moro
enlarged system of government that
of United States citizenship and state
hood Including common holding
proporty to Individual tenure.
It may bo well to look Into tho rea-
sons underlying Bonerate orxnnluitlnn
of pacific territory Into statehood. U
will bo found tlint Btnte hnvo been
orgnnlld with boundaries nnd Includ-
ing territory within which imcirtc
rights have been accorded to or won
by tho prow? of SU Inhabitants ; to
It wilt Ire teen that tho right of per-
tont wm the principle niton which
they have been orgnnlied nnd the
sentiment should not be lost tight of
n tli secession of new states or ter
ritories by the United States.
The country upon the older maps
denominated the Indian Territory was
set npart by the United States out of
a portion of what lint been commonly
called the Louisiana purchase. Since
it wat tot apart portion of It have
boon segregated nnd organized Into
Rtntot namely Kansas Nebraska
Colorado ami latterly the territory of
Oklahoma. Now In tho same man
ner the Northwest Territory was or
gnnltod Into stntos of Ohio Indiana
Illinois and Kentucky by grant of the
old state of Virginia nnd by some
othore. This 1b mentioned to show
that the uniform principle In tho or-
ganization of states has novor been
varied from slnco tho foundation of
tho government to tho preBcnt time.
Now when tho last portion of the
territory which wns granted In perpe-
tuity to the Indian pooplo for a per-
petual homo hns to bo organized tho
samo prlnclplo and sentiment under
which tho oldor states woro orcan-
Ized having soparnto history with
soparato rights nnd institutions thero
Is no reason why this time-honored
custom should bo vlolatod.
Tho pooplo of tho Torrltory acced
ing to tho domands of progress west
ward havo not demurred to releasing
portions of their torrltory when condi
lions had changed nnd tho count!
was occupied by Invading nrmlcs of
self-governing people from tho East
and South. All of this nmcnlflccnt
territory out of which states have
been born has passed from conditions
of tho first grant to tho pcoplo of tho
Indian Torrltory. Now when It Is
proposed to Induct Into statehood all
tho remaining territory within tho
confluos of tho United Statos thg
Torrltory has tho right to Insist that
its identity bo not lost or submerged
for any economical reason or any rea-
son advanced as to tho symmetrical
portion of statohood which seems to
would it not bo moro conslstont
with tho principle upon which all tho
statos havo boon organized to lot tho
identity of tho Territory remain?
And when organized glvo it perpetual
Idontity by giving It soparato state
hood. Tho last virgin territory in tho
United States which by tho unbiased
Judgment of tho people of all tho
states and travelors from nil nations.
Is denominated tho richest and most
beautiful portion of tho United States
with tho finest cllmato and Its produc
tive capacity equal to that of the rich
vol biuio growing mo staples com.
wheat and cotton and tho best fruits
of any of the states should not be
subjected to a lower estate than that
of tho other state that have been In-
dinted Into the sisterhood of statos.
The Territory should not bo compolloil
to accept a petition of concubinage to
Oklahoma whon brought Into state-
hood. The fairest and youngost
should be given equal honor with tho
older nnd lest nttroctlvo. And It Is
Improbable that Undo Sam will deign
to ask tho virgin state to accept tho
entry Into statehood on a lower piano
than tho other states.
