Ninety-nine years ago when Charles N. Haskell went to Guthrie for the start of the Oklahoma Constitutional Convention the owner of the Royal Hotel told him that all the rooms had been taken by other delegates.

Haskell checked the register and found the names of only five delegates.
Haskell, who helped the Convention President William H. (Alfalfa Bill) Murray run the show, planned to be the first governor (and was).
Arguments over county borders and county seats were so vicious that the chairman of the committee involved had to be removed and Haskell took his place.The committee picked up 21 counties from the Oklahoma Territory but had to find the other 54 and name them.
Murray was the only person to have two counties named for him, Murray and Alfalfa.The only other delegates so honored were Haskell, Albert H. Ellis, William C. Hughes, J.S. Latimer, Charles McClain, John C. Major and Clement V. Rogers.
Haskell said J.H.N. Cobb of Sapulpa was the only Republican to vote for the counties solution.
