advanced In opposition to this that
such a nurse would deinornll.o con-

Tho most Important factor In bring-
lug uUnit this change In sentiment
In favor of tlio Immediate recognition
of Indian Territory has been Mr. V
L. Foley of ICufalilu who was elected
by tho people of the territory to
conio horo and endeavor to secure
legislation by congress giving Indian
Territory a dolegato In the house of
reproM-'nlutlves. Mr. Foloy has la-
bored early and late with tlio me in-
here of congress from every section
of tho country In an earnest endenvo?'
to secure proper recognition for tho

enactment of loglslutlou giving them

Iho immedlnte recognition of Indian
Territory to statehood on an equal
footing Willi Oklnhnina. They realize
that even If they concede Mr. Foley's
request that It will only bo two or
three years until Indian Territory must
be given further recognition In the
form of statehood. Why then they ar-
gue should wo pursue a course which
will only necessltato further legisla-
tion along the same lines within the
short period of two or threo years.
Why not dispose of tlie question In
a comprehensive way giving tho peo-
ple of tho territory statehood with
Oklahoma nnd thus dispose of till-'
question for all time to come.
This seems to bo the prevailing
opinion of men who have given the
subject thought and attention. And
tho man who has brought thin about
