1900 - Muskogee People Think Dennis Flynn Is Looking For Trouble
On 7 August 1900, page 8, of The Guthrie Daily Leader, there was a story that proclaimed that the honorable Dennis Flynn of Oklahoma was looking for trouble. What was this trouble Flynn was looking for?
The Muskogee Times said, Hon. Dennis Flynn, of Oklahoma was in town for a few hours today. He was largely interested in mining property in the northwestern part of the territory. It was stated however that his business had no relation to mining property and that he was getting data for a little investigation of federal officers in the territory.
Mr Flynn had always aimed high and the game he was looking for was, if reports were true "some of the finest." Several people were standing on the "tiptoe of expectancy" waiting to see the outcome of his visit.
Mr. Flynn believed the future of this territory was rather uncertain. There seems to be no way, no satisfactory way out of the dilemma. Annexation to Oklahoma as the different sections in the territory were ready. This was Dennis Flynn's ultimatum, and if the Republican party remains in power it will come pretty near following out the suggestion. There is hardly a conceivable condition worse than the present of 1900 and from very despair the people would be driven to join Oklahoma.
