DELEGATE McGUIRE TALKED TO
NEWSPAPERMEN AT KANSAS
CITY LAST WEEK.
He Told Them That the Single State-
hood Bill Would be Passed by
Congress Before the Christmas
Holidays.
Kansas City, Dec. 4.—Bird S. Mc-
Guire, delegate to congress from Okla-
homa Territory, was in Kansas City
yes4erday and last night. He was on
his way to Washington to be in at-
tendance upon the session of con-
gress.
Relative to statehood, the important
subject to him and to Oklahoma and
Indian Territory, he said:
"I feel confident that we are going
to get statehood for Oklahoma and
Indian Territory as a single state.
I shall Introduce a ljlll into congress
the first of the session, looking to that
lend. This bill, which in a general
way Is after the fashion of the Ham-
ilton statehood bill, already has been
discussed. I expect that after it has
been introduced into the house it will
go to the committer and without de-
lay will come from under the rule lim-
iting the time for debate. I look then
to see it passed without delay. I think
it will be through the house by Christ-
mas. From there it will go into the
senate and I believe that that body
will dispose of it without any great
delay.
"I am quite sure that everybody un-
derstands the situation as to state-
hood. Congressmen and senators hav;
gone over the malter until they have
a definite compri hension of condi-
tions. That, for one reason, leads me
to believe that there shouldn't be any
further hindrance of great importance
to statehood.
"At the opening of the coming ses-
sion I also shall introduce a bill mak-
ing the Osage Indian reservation a
county of Oklahoma and giving such
a county complete jurisdiction over its
affairs the same as other counties
enjoy."
