Excerpt

“Prominent Citizens of Oklahoma Oppose a Union With Indian Territory Now.

‘No one in Oklahoma is in favor of the proposition to ask for the admission of Oklahoma and the Indian Territory into the Union as one state at this time,’ said Senator (). R. Fegan, of Guthrie at the Planters last night. ‘There is a general misunderstanding, apparently, as to the wishes of the people. There is no question but that the effort to bring the two territories into the Union as one state would delay statehood for Oklahoma for at least five years.'” ( The Herald-Sentinel , Vol. 9, No. 51, December 21, 1900)
