Iliggins lat night explained his part in
the controversy over the oil leases in

has become a public question through
the investigation by Secretary of the

called to a published article which stat

"It is true that I have expressed my
view to the president relative to oil
leases in Indian Territory. I live in an
oil country and many of my friends and
constituents are interested in the oil
business, migrating at various times
from one oil country to another. There

Oklahoma and Indian Territory. The
method is as far as I know, unusual,
and I have so informed the President.
"Among other suggestions I thought it
would be; wise for Secretary Hitchcock
to advise with some practical oil men on
the subject" -,
