6. The Republican party hns cloclaredfor
twelve years for Immediate statehood for Okie
home, agreeing that the Indian Terr.tors be at-
tached when its conditions mado it ready.
We endorse, therefore, the bill by the commit-
tee on territories which has been Introduced by
Chairman Hamilton and now pending n the
lower house of congress; and we urge the im-
mediate passage of this bill, that the people of
Oklahoma may have that soveregnty which
their wealth, population and exalted citizen-
ship so thoroughly entitle them to.
7. We congratulate tlio people of Oklahoma
on the acknowledgment by congress of thei dec-
laration of the Republican party of Oklahoma
in thd last campaign for some plan of equaliza-
tion of the school funds of Oklahoma and In-
dian Territory, in the iippropnation b.v con-
gress of five million dollars in lieu of school
ands in the Indian Territory as a partial offset
for the splendid school land endowment of Okla-
homa. Wo point to this ns the direct result

8. We heartily approve of the action of a re-
publican congress in providing for the reclnma-
tlon and development of the arid and semi-
arid lands of the west by the inauguration nnd
construction of a substantial system af irriga-
tion works under government supervision, and
in us much as Oklahoma hns contributed large-
ly to the National Irrigation Reclamation fund
we maintain that as fur as possible, there
should be a proportionate expenditure in the
construction of diversion, storago nnd distrib-
uting systems in the western pnrt of Oklahoma.
We, therefore, especially commend the activity
of our delegate in congress, Honorable Bird S.
McGuire, in his firm and insistent efforts to se-
cure the promise of early action to that end.
9. We ondorse the nutioual and territorial
good roads movement. We pledge our encour-
agement in every way possible to the betterment
of the highways of Oklahoma and to the fur-
therance of the various organizations in this ter-
ritory for this purpose.
10. Wo favor tlio early allotment of the In
dian reservations within the territory and that
Indinn lands will be subject to taxation and
bear tlieir just share of the exponse of gov-
ernment, that civilization will surround every
person intho territory.
11. In furtherance of the principles onnnci-
ated hitherto by the Republican party nnd in
justice to a loyal ally in said party resolve;
That we heartily endorse the resolution pnssed
by the Indian Territory asking incorporation
of tho “Quay Suffrage amendment” in the state-
hood bill when passed by congress.
12. We invite the people of Oklahoma to as-
sist tho Republican party in tlio election of its
candidates ns the surest way for tho accom-
plishment of good government, nationally, ter-
ritorially and locally. The history of Oklahoma
in congress proves that the only way to accom-
plish anything for the territory, iB by the elec-
tion of a Republican delegate.
