St. Iouis. Oct. 5. (Staff Correspond-
onco of Ardmoreite.) Indian Ter-
ritory makes a flno showing at tho
World's Fair and at loast all of tho
three or four thousand visitors who
attended tho exorcises Saturday went
nwny Improgsed with tho fact that tho
Indian Territory Is the land ot Inox-
hauatlblo resources and a wonderful
peoplo blending tho best elements or
tho state from which thoy originally
The oxorcUos were held at tho In-
dian Territory building which is tho
marvel of all who know tho small
amount of monoy that Commissioner
Hubbard hnd at his disposal. It com-
pares very (favorably with statos
which had ninny tlmos as much mon-
ey. Tho first exorcises woro held in
front of tho building where soats had
been provided for sovoral thousnnu
and where many more stood within

by Commissioner Hubbard who In-

that the speech mado by tho ex-soc-retnry
of the Intorlor was tho longost
nnd In many respects tho host he
lias Riven at nny state's ceremonies.
He understands our peoplo and is In
sympathy with their aspirations. Ho
knows of our matchless resources and
Kablo progress which has1
under such adverse con-1
dltlons. Ho expressed tho hope and be-
lief that statehood would soon como
to end tho anomalous conditions which
now obtain. Ho said that all tho
statos began their story with tho time
when they wero admitted to tho
Union; when they began to mako their
own laws and administer thorn for
Governor Pleasant Portor of tho
Creek Nation responded to tho ad
dress of wolcomo. His speech had boon
carofully prepared reho viewed In

ritory nnd tho legislation and treat-
ies which havo led up to tho prosent

the now state.
Commissioner Hubbard voiced tho
disappointment of hundreds in tho
crow! when ho oxplalnod that Judge
Charles 11. Stunrt of South McAlos-
ter was 111 and could not bo prosent
to speak. Hut tho Judgo sent a sub-
stitute in tho person of Will H. Ful-
ler of tho snmo town who was not
known to the crowd but who soon
Bcforo tho substitute had spokon
three entoncea everybody snw that
he was an orator of groat powor. His
delivery was superb. Kvory syllablo
was heard by every person prosent
nnd thero was a flro and logic about
the speech which thrilled all. It was
a speech designed to removo preju-
dices strangors might havo cntortain-
ed against tho Territory. Ho showed
that the whlto man was thero Vv tho
invitation of tho Indian that ho had
been responsible for tho groator part
of tho development ot tho country nnd
that tho Indian appreciated this and
that thoy woro not hostllo toward
each othor. Ho then quoted exten
sively from reports of tho Dawes Com-
mission nnd nddross by flovrnor
Green McCurtaln and othors. to show
that tho 700000 inhabitants ot tho
Territory are as capablo of sell-gov
ernment as any people In snv o' tho
states snd that they are cmtliHl to
the same. He showed tho folly of at-
tempting to govern people of such va-
ried Intr-rests at a distance of l5t)
