KAPPLER TALKS FOR TERRITORY
PEOPLE AT WASHINGTON.
Says the People Here Are Aroused on
the Question of Statehood Values
He Declares Will Eegln Increas-
ing When the Bill Passes.
A Washington anoolnl hhvhi Tim
Hon. Chits. A. Kappler formerly con-'
necicti with tho Indlnn commission
lias Just relurnod from it mission to
tho Indian Territory nntl tho I'aclllc
coast. Ho says that everywhere ho
wont In the Indlnn Territory ho was
mot constantly with tho Inquiry as to
tho chanco for favorablo action nt this
session of congress on tho statehood
proposition. Tho peoplo aro thoroughly
aroused on this question nntl their In-
telligence material worth numbers
and ontcrprlso malo thorn' In ovory
respect worthy of admission Into tho
tinlon of states. It Is hollovcd ho said
throughout tho tcrrtlory that congress
will admit Oklahoma and Indian Ter-
ritory as ono stato early In tho present
"In tho two territories" said he
"thero aro about a million nnd a half
of people of whom nbout 90000 aro
Tndlfinn. tin thn tnrm' In nam! In
thnt country. Of thoso 90000 Indians 1
only 20000 aro full bloods and of Uto
balance somo navo only as much as a
sixty-fourth of Indian blood. In very j
few towns Is any Indian llfo seen nt
nil and tho blanket Indian simply
docs not oxlst In any part of tho tor- j
rltory. Tho full blood It Is noticeable
always koops away from tho towns I
making his homo along tho creeks
nnd rlvors nnd scrconlng himself in
tho wooded country as far as possible j
Except for the Infusion of Indlnns all
tho people of tho two territories aro
Amorlcnns nnd an unusually largo
number natlvo born. In business abil-
ity and enterprise. I found that they
aro cfliial of any people nnywhero In j
tho United States. Tito territory Is un-
usually rich In products of the. soil
and tho mines. Conl stone oil and lead
aro found In almost Inexhaustible
quantities nntl every mineral almost
except gold and silver. Tho cotton
lnnd Is as fine as can bo found In nny
of tho southern states and I think thnt
tho cotton lands nB a rule produce
hoavlor than tho avorago southern
lanJaltiitvii gab abounds nntl la
pipe l Into many towns. Tho cities
and towns of Indlnn Territory I found
to bo going nhead very rapidly. Mus-
kogee Tulsa South McAlostor an.l
Ardmoro aro advancing very fast.
With statehood property values would
atlvnnco almost Immediately 2G to 40
per cent. Tho people In tho surround-
ing states In grpat numbers aro await-
ing statehood being hold back now
to somo extent by obstruction In the
way of freedom of ontcrprlso thnt
statehood would remove. If tho re-
strictions at present on tho salo of
Indlnn Innds oxcopt ns to their home-
steads which It Is proposed shall bo
forever Inalienable bo removed tho
farmers nnd merchants In tho adjoin-
ing states will bo quick to rush In nntl
nmko their homes In the now stntos.
They will nfford tho Indian at tho
same tlmo n lesson In thrift nntl both
tho territory nnd tho Indian will ro-
colvo a wonderful Impetus. Tho now
stnto of Oklahoma very quickly will
tako rank as ono of tho most progres-
sive and rich states In tho union."

"Jin reviewing tho mcssnso of Gov-
ernor Thomas U. Ferguson Mr.
Hitchcock snys: .
"In regard to statehood tho gov-
"Oklahoma Is qunlllleil for and on-
tilled to statehood. Thero nro In tho

como from ovory part of tho Unite

gies nnd highest possibilities of clt-
Iznshlp peculiar to nny and all of tho

est degreo tho rights of government
is n fact solf-ovldcnt to all who aro
conversant with tho social conditions
which provnll hero whero wo havo n
cosmopolitan citizenship represent-
ing tho very highest standards of In-
tollcctual and mural development.
"For years It has boon tho opinion
of tho statohood promotors thnt Ok-
lahoma and tho Indian Territory
would ultimately bo Included In tho
area of ono stato. An. affixation xas
first commenced In Oklahoma foi
lmmdlto statehood for this territory
with tho provision that tho Indian
Territory should bo added when con-
ditions would permit. It hoenmo evi-
dent that congress would not admit
on- territory without tho other.
"Tho sentlmont now prevailing In
Oklnnoma is for immctllalo joint
statehood nnd a similar sentiment
btjyond question provnlls In tho In-
dlnn Territory. Tho proposed stale
will bo very rich In natural resources
aid possiuilllics along all lines of
"Tho quostlon of tho admission of
tho territory as a stuto Is ono wholly
within tho Jurisdiction of congross
and this department can tliereforo
do no more than direct your atten-
