Until Final Action is
Tbo senato will act upon tho bill
granting statehood to Oklahoma,
Arizona and New Mt-xtco at the
December session, unanimous
agreement having been reached
yesterday that the committee on
territories should report tho bill
on December 3, and that consider
ation of it should be taken up in
tho senate on December 10, and
continue as unfinished business
until a vote Bball have' bean reach
Under the agreement tbe mea
sure will seive as a block to all
other buBlntBB until it hss been
considered and voted upon. Mr.
Quay secured tbe agreement, after
a conference with tho republican
members of tbo committee on ter
ritories. With isthmian canal bill out of
conforance, tbe army appropria
tion and tbo navy appropriation
bills practically agreed upon, and
all of the appropriation measures
in a fair way of being disposed of
this week, tbe Philippine civil
government bill is the only .moa
euro that stands in tbo way jof al
most immediate adjournment.
The collapse of the Cuban ques
tion has placed the senate in the
position of being compelled to
wait for the house to dispose of its
unfinished business before Using

dicted, however, tbat tho differ
ences will be adjusted and that an
adjournment may bo reached by
Wednesday or Thursday of next
It was learned yesterday tbat
Mr. Quaywas prepared to adopt
an extremo course in tbe event
of Senator Beveridge and the anil
statehood senators bad rejected
bis proposition to agree upon a
date for taking up tho statehood
at the next eertion. Ho said he
should have s'.arled a systematic
filibuster that would have brought
legislation in the senate to a stand
still. Even appropriation bills
would not have been voted upon
according to tbo Pennsylvania sen
ator's plan, as the sessions for an
IndeflnU period would have been
consumed by speeches on tho tar

he belelved the statehood bill
would be passed before tho holi

Fprclat to Dkllr Chieftain.
Kansas City, Mo., Juno 28.
Shippers of southern cattle haven't
been kicking much about the treat
ment they have received tho past
week. Where the quality of tbe
cattlo was good the prices have
been good also, and even for tbe
poorer quality of stuff prices tbat a
year ago were not dreamed of has
been paid. Once this week all re
cords were shattered In the quar
antine division by a load of Okla
homa streers that sold for (6.90 a
hundred. Twice this week south
ern steers havo sold for 18.50,
which was GO cents more than fed
Texans ever sold for on this
ket prior to tbis yoar.
Ono of tbo best Bdlea made this
year in the quarantino division
was made yesterday by J. W. Gib
son of Wagoner, I. T. He bdd in
six loads of Texas bred steers, 104
head, which brought (6.60. They
were big, eleek, round-bodied fel
lows and weighed an average of
1,213 pounds. They were not tbe
kind of Texas steers one used to
see in picture books, long-legged,
long horned, slab Bided and fleet
footed, ready to flee at tbe look of
a stranger, but good humored ,leis
ure.foving, domestic looking, with
short legs, broad backs and broad
deep chests. They were good

products from tbe'ndian territory

The receipts of quarantine cat-
' i r tho week, including today
have been 434 Cars, being two cars
under last week, and a gain of 93
ears over the corresponding week
of last year. The receipts were
10,699 bead of cattle and 2,767 bead
of calvea against 10,550 cattle and
2,974 calves last week, and 8,223
c ttile and 1,641 calves a year ago.
J"ew elrickly grass cattle have
oomo so far, and it is expected tbat
the movement of Ibis class will bo
light because so many owners will
liold their stufj back to see what
kind of corn crop there will be. If
U is good, thsy will feed this fall
and in this way will turn the corn
Into high-priced beef.
8ooner than was anticipated the
8 cent mark was reached for prime
beef cattle. This week two lots ol
tattle have sold here at 88 25 a
Jundred, and several have aold
ere at (8. Now the cattlemen
re oneoulalinB aa to wham the ad.
ivunco will end. Nine cents is now
the limit placed by eome knowing
ones In fact bets have been made
ere this woek at even money that
beeves will sell on the markat for
89, a hundred before July 15.
Hogs haye sold here recently at
TM and it is freely predicted
tbat they will go to (9. before the
climax of high prices la reached.
But while beef and pork are" get
ting to the point at which men of
tsoiierate are sorely tempted to
turn vegetarians, mutton has tak
en a slump, and prices have de
elided from 75 coots to 81. a hun
dred! within a week. This deollne,
however, was due largely to an In
flux of westerners, and it 1b believ
ed tj be only temporary, All
Markets shared in the deollne, and
it wtmld appear that mutton
tinid be a popular artlple of diet
wltkitbose who object to "going
bw" on beef or pork.

gsveral Important Measures the Law
makers Didn't Take Care Of.
, Several important measures will
bo left on tbe calendar wben con
gress adjourns this week. Among
these are bills which will no over
largely becauseof political reasons.
Among them are the omnibus
statehood hill admitting New
Mexico, Arizona and Okla
homa; tbe ship subsidy bill,
which baa been discussed ic and
out of congress for several years;
the immigration bill; tho bill pro
viding for the popular election of
senators and tbe bill changing the
date of the Inauguration from
March 4 to some date in April. At
least three of these meas
ures will be disposed of early in
the next session.
An agreement for tbe considera
tion of tbe 'statehood bill was
reached Ibis week and Senator
Quay and other advocates of taw
statehood proposition arooonfldeTt
that tbat measure will be passed
by the Senate by a largo majority.
There was no opposition to It
when tbe vote was take in tbe
house, and tbe 8laleboodM4oa
are inclined to the bHfUiat
when tbo vote is takfsi'k Ho
senate much of the opposittwt that
has manifested itself at thk ses
