'REPUBLICANS PLAN TO GET CON-
TROL OF POWER.
'Would at Once Unite Indian With
Oklahoma Territory and Be Under
Present Laws of the Latter.
Governor Appoint Otfleers.
A .dispatch which emanated from
Muskogee says the Repiiul leans of
Indian 'Punitory have n now scheme
iu connection with the statehood bill.
As n result of. Informal conferences
held during the lust week they have
cittlinei? a plan which if It can lie
carried through will assure complete
organization of the party In what Is
now Indian Territory long before
statehood Is Dually acquired.
The now plan Is to have tho bill
so mod I II oil Hint Immediately upon Us
final passage and approval the two
territories will be united as tho terri-
tory of Oklahoma under the present
laws of Oklahoma. This would of
course necessitate the appolntmont
of county olllcers for the new part of
tho territory. Oklahoma has a Itopub-
llcnn governor ami under the existing
laws the governor Iuib tho appoint-
ment of olllclaU for all new counties.
The political complexion of Indian
Territory Is doubtful to say the least.
The city elections last April Indicated
that the Democrats have slightly tho
best of It. Tt Is to overcome this ap-
parent majority In the ranks of the
enemy that tho Republican leaders
have suggested the proposed plan.
The Hamilton bill as It passed the
house describes tho boundaries of
the twenty-eight counties for Indian
Territory nnd It Is quite probable that
the final bill will also provldo for a
certain number of counties. Tho coun-
ties would at first have practically
no organization of either party bnt
should tho governor bo permitted to
name officials for their government
formidable organizations of tho party
In power would soon bo perfected.
If this condition can be brought
about the Republicans believe tho
party would not only control tho con-
stitutional convention but would also
elect a large majority of tho members
cf tho first legislature which would
eventually moan tho election of two
Republican United States senators.
They' realize that organization will
mean much to begin with nnd it is
believed tho first party to organize
will at least for a number of years
Ily being assured of a majority In
tho constitutional convention It
would bo a matter of Ilttlo difficulty
tc augment tho strength gained In
organization by being cautious In de-
scribing the congressional districts
for tho now state. All of tho bills so
far Introduced In congress havo pro-
vided that tho constitutional conven-
tion describe tho boundaries of these
districts and If tho plans outlined
aro given consideration of course tho
bill whlc'i becomes a law will contain
rt slmllnr provision tlTus affording an
opportunity for tho party In control

Tlic proposition has alrcau lie n
submitted to Delegate McOuIre and
Dennis Flynn of Oklahoma and their
opinion of the matter Is expected in
u few days. Of course the acquies
cence of Oklahoma Republicans would
be required to make a success of the
enterprise. If the Oklahoma dele-
gates agree with the Indian Territory
Uaders It Is figured that the confer
ence committee will willingly accept
This would place the statehood bill
on party lines In congress. The Dem
ocrats have already gotten wind of
the proposition and are considerably
excited. The Republicans are using
lor argument In Justification of their
plans tUt to be equal In the constitu-
tional convention the delegates from
bclh territories should be elected un-
der the snme law. The only method
by which ttfs colitS be done would
be the one proposed.
