IN EARNEST FOR STATEHOOD.
lion Sidney Clurkn Voice, the Sentiment
of Oklahoma J'rnple In an
Washington, Jan. I. (Special.) Hon. Sid
ney Clarke, elinlrman of the Oklahoma
statehood executive committee. Is here In
the Interest of an enabling net to Include
the present Territory ot Oklnliom.i and
the Chickasaw- country. Air. Clarke said
to u Journal correspondent:
"Our people are In earnest for statehood..
It Is not a party "question. While there
nro some differences of opinion as 'to what
the boundaries of the 'now state ouglrt to
be, all but u few political schemers and
salaried olllclals ure anxious to escape
from the Intolerable conditions which ex
ist In Oklahoma under the present terri
torial government. So grent Is the lnelll
clency and demoralization of the territo
rial administration, executive nnd judicial)
that at the late election the Democratic
ticket was third In the race, receiving less
thr.n one-fourth of 'the total vote of 1S,VK.
notw lthstan'dlng the territory Is naturally
Democratic. In territorial and county mat
ters extravagance Is the rul and economy
the exception. Under the appointment
system the Strip counties aro already
loaded with unnecessary Indebtcilqess,
rc-KlePsiy-Tmitnicud, and with little to
show for It In return. Somo of our courts
are running the counties In debt at an
enormous rate, and command little re
spect from the mnss of the people, who
only want Rood government and a Just,
Impartial and economical execution of the
"In the' nature of tilings, our people,
who are ns Intelligent and progressive as
can be found anywhere In tills country,
want a speedy deliverance from this ex
travagant nnd arbitrary domination of
federal olllclals by tins sub tltutlon of n
Htate government. My own view Is, that
It would b the most compiehcnslve states
manship to mgnnlzc all of the old Indian
Territory Into a single statp, and the best
possible solution of the dlllleult pioblonis
presented In the Indian Territory situation.
Hut as this view Is not likely to prevail,
the iirxt best thlngi for congress to do
would bo to attach the Chickasaw country
to Oklahoma and give us an enabling act
at this session of congress. I am in favor
nf this regardless of political results.
Whether such un act Is passed by this
nr tho next congress the political lesults
will be the same, so there will be nothing
gained by any party by delay. We have
the wealth anil population, and all the
necessary qitnllilintlons for statehood, and
nny consideration connected with good
government demands that this session of
congress should do ub justice by passing
an enubllng act. The petty lensous which
urn uigod against statehood, based upon
local and personal political intcicsts, sink
Into Inslgnllicani'o compared with tho
grand results wlileh will come to us in the
moio rapid development of our commer
cial and ngrlciiltiu'al Intcicsts, and In
piopeily founding the chll, educational,
charitable and penal Institutions of u gte-at
commonwealth. Add the Chickasaw coun
try to Oklahoma, nnd the new state would
exceed In area the great stale of Ohio,
and would contain, tit the date of admis
sion, not less than Iijo.OoO people, The
various delces which have been proposed
itt this session of congiess, like tho limited
extension of court' Jurisdiction for tho In
dian Tenltory, In the aim nee of a state
or teirltorlal government, nie of little Im
portance, unit would utterly fall to meet
tho emergency which exists. It Is aston
ishing that there should be any hesitation
on the part of any well Informed senator
or member of cciigicss to deal with the
Indian Tenltory situation in the most
heroic manner In view of all the circum
stances of the case. The facts oltlclully
promulgated thiough tho Iawe eommls.
slon nie notorious, and it would be almost
a ei line against civillaitlon, and u menace
to the prosperity of all the states of the
Mississippi valley for congress to delay
action beyond the piesent session, I feel

Leo's flllje ileal (lives In the Apostolic
Dcli-gulo Ciiliirgril Authority In llio
Chicago, Jan. I. A special cablegram to
the Tost from Home says:
The expected encyclical from Tope Leo,
addressed to the circhblshops and bishops
of the I'nltcd States, Is now ready, nnd will
be transmitted through the usual channels
In a few days. It treats principally with
the authority and powers nf the apostolic
delegate, Monslgnor S.itolll, who Is con
firmed and sticngthened In his position.
TJie letter Is certain to cause n profound
sonsatlpn In ecclesiastical elides In the
United States, similar to that excited last
year In France by loco's recommendation
to the Catholic leaders of that country, In
which he urged them to loyally accept the;
republic and no longer waste their efforts
and their forces by' standing aloof and
striving for the Impossible tho return nnd
the 'restoration of. the royalists to iwvver.
In the present encyclical, I'opo Leo con
firms thu 'friendly disposition prcvlously
manlfested toward a lepubllcan form of
government, demonstrating that the church
is lrea to accept and show sympathy with
popular Institutions not Inherently hostile
to Christian principles. .- ' ," ', "Jj
In detalrtho encyclical enlarges'tq1 the
fullest extent th6 power nnd Jurisdiction of
the apostolic delegate, thus confcrrlncr on
Monslgnor Salolli almost plenaiy author
ity. All matters ol internal nnd local con
tioversy alfectlng the church In the 1'nlted
States shall no longer bu under the Juris
diction of the eouits of the propaganda,
but will be heard and disposed ot In tho
delegate's ti lbuti.it which becomes, in fact,
an American ectleslastleal court.
'I his Is, a further and most Important
recognition ot home rule In the church,
and will go far to do away with the jeal
ousy of Home and Roman Iniluence, which
has hitherto prevailed 111 certain quaiters
within and without the chinch.
'Hie encyclical, in language and snlilt.
breathes an anient afl'e.'Ilon for the neonle
and Institutions of the United States, and
Is not sparing In expressions of respect and
admiration for the popular form and
Icmoci.ulc spirit of our government.
From this foic-ensl of the encyclical It Is
easy to see that It will be received with
unusual favor In the I'nitnl States bv
all classes, adding a new and impoilant
testimony to the justly earned title of l.eo
XIII. the pope of the pi ople.
The enejcilcal concludes by expressing
the warmest ooutldcnee and In giving the
fullest appinv.il of the course ot .Monslgnor

In addition to this force, each clialrmnii

Senator Wunlcmaiin, of St. I.ouls, created

Itoicrnnr Slime's Message.
To the Senate nnd House of Hepresenla
llves of the Thirty-eighth General Assem
bly of Missouri.
The revenues ot the state nre derived
from a direct tax of 2" cents on the $101
levied upon the real and personal property
of Individuals and corporations, fiom li
cense taxes, a lux on premiums received by
Insurance companies, n tn on meieh.ints
and manufacturers, nil Incorporation tax,
tnxes ngalnst express companies, Interest
on deposits, and from seer.il minor mis
cellaneous sources. All the moneys derived
from state taxation nre primarily divided
Into two funds, namely: the "state Inter
est fund" and the "revenue fund." Ily the
net of April IS, 1SS9, It Is provided that a
in of 10 cents on the J100 shall be liVleil
to meet the Interest on the public debt,
nnd to provide a fund for the reduction of
the principal of the debt, In compliance
with the constitution, which requires the
annual payment of at least $J."il,000 theieof.
All sums arising from this tax, together
with two-llfths of the merchants' taxes,
nro llrst paid Into the "interest fund."
After deducting so much thereof ns may
be necessary to pay the Interest accruing
during the yenr for which Iho taxes were
levied, the remainder Is, by order of the
fund commissioners, transferred to what Is
called the "sinking fund," which Is a fund
specially set apart for redemption of bonds.
ISy the act of Mai eh 2, lMi- It Is pro
vided thnt the sum of Id cents on the $100
valuation shall be loled for state revenue.
All sums arising from this tax, together
with the license tnx, the Insurance tax,
Hi- Incoipoiatlon tax, three-fifths of the
merchants' tax, etc., aro paid into the
"revenue fund'' out of (lie moneys cbv
icreil by trill fund thacrtilre'cMirrentnr.rUn
nlng expenses ot the state government are
paid; that' Is, out of this fund are paid
the salaries of all legislative, executhe
and judicial olllcers; all departmental ex
penses; all sums necessary for the construc
tion and maintenance of eleemosynary,
educational and penal institutions; all
sums ieciiiied to pa criminal costs; in
short, every current demand of nu de
scription coming against the public treas
ury. It is alto proliled by the constitu
tion that not less than il per cent of the
state re venue shall be applied annually
10 the support of the public schools, and
for some ears past one-third of the ordi
nary revenues Jiave been appropi luted for
that purpose. So that the curicnt ex
penses of the government have icnlly been
met by using only about two-thlnls of the
"levenue fund." The tax leled for cur
rent expenses upon real and peisonul prop
erty, and upon thu property of railroad,
bildgo nnd telegraph companies, Is only 10
cents on the line, the lenialning 5 cents,
levied under tiio act of 1'.iJ, being set
apart for the support of public schools, and

Dining the last biennial period, tho sum
tcalUcd fiom all sources of taxation and
set apait to meet the demands against the
revenue fund amounted 10 Jl.iril.l.Sl.lC. The
total appioprlatlons made by the Tlilrtj
seventh general assembly, payable out ot
this fund, amounted 10 JI,0,tKII, which In
etudes $1,227,01 set apait In compliance
with the uppioprl.itlon for tho support of
the public schools. Of these appiopilatlons

expenses oi tho government that Is, lor
pui poses necessary to lie again provided
for, such as salaries of otllccm, support of

will not lie actually used and will revert
to the treasury. Hy deducting Ihls sum It

Upon consultation with my associates In
tho stalo government, and after careful
riilculallnn, It is estimated (hut the amount
which will be paid Into the revenue fund
dining Iho next two caib will aggregate
about $l,20,iA This will be an jnciease,
In lecelpts over tho two preWous ycais of
ubout $2iX),0e0 probably less, due to tho de.
elopment of the stale ami the Increase In
the value of propeity. Against these re.
celpts we have set tho sums that will be
rciuircd to meet the oidluary cm rent ex.
penses, which, Including the public schoql
moneys, we estimate will reach a total of
$:i,75l,&a0, This intimate exceeds Iho total
of the ordinary appropi iailons for the pre.
ceding two years (Including school moneys
fur both periods) by $151, Sit). About one
half of this estimated Increase will bo oc
casioned by a iJigcr distribution to the
public schools resulting fiom a larger lev

responded with nlnrrlly and without a
moment's hesitation. The miinliMiuncc
of 11 fairly well equipped mllltui Is not
only In conformity to our tin on of gov
ernment, but It Is a posltlie necessity.
The presence of nil aileipmle and elllcleiit
force of this kind removes all excuse for
the employment of the regular army In
purely domestic affairs.
The bureau of geology and mines, for
reasons slated In Us report, and to which
I refer, recommend nn Ineiease of Jl,il
above the lust appropriation for Hie pros
erullon of tho survey,
The last general assembly created the
olllcc of Inspector of lend, stlm . Iron and
other mines, at n salary of il.nu per jour,
but fulled, through oversight, to make any
provision for the payment thereof The
necessity for the new Ihspector was mis

made an appointment to till the ntllee.
To provide for the fuluie sil.iry or this

ensuing tvvn yeurs will probably ecee!
those for the last two l about $2ii,oii,
nnd 11s one. third of thnt amount will be
appropriated for the support or public
schools. It Is estimated that the appropria
tion made for Unit purpose will be In
creased about $70,0iio. -
I'nr Hxtriinrilliiary Hxpinses.
Assuming thnt the estimates herein
made are correct, and that the nppioprfu
llons to be made will substantially con.
form thereto, then, by .subtracting Ihe or
dllnury expenses, amounting In $1,7t1l1S0.
from ,tho levenue receipts, estimated at
$1,200,000, there will rem iln a balance of
$U.".,D). Out of tills balance all etr.ini
dlnary nppioprlatlonH must be paid. After
consultation with my colleagues In the ex.
ecutlvc departments, we have estimated
the extraordinary expenditures for the en
suing two years nt the sum of $I2S,Coj,
which we have distributed as follows:
Criminal costs deficiency, JSIM.ti; nil other
deficiencies, $s,0)0; appropriations for nils
cellaneous objects, $ln,li0; ex'tiaonllnary
appropriations for cleo.mosyu.try, cduc.i.
Hon 1 and penal Institutions. $2v),cort.
Summarizing the foiegolng estimates re
lating to receipts Into the levenue fund
and expendlturevfor ISSVii, the lcsult may
be stated as follows: Ustlm.ited receipts,
$l,20ii,000. ordinary expenditures, $.1.7.1 l.&SO,
remainder, $I1.",I20: extraordinary expendi
tures, $US,CO0; final balance, $u;,S20.
Additional Kevcnne X, eded.
Thus It will be seen that the estimated
revenue, If fully collected, will be barely
more than sufficient to meet the estimated
demands upon It. I do not see how these
demands can be materially reduced with
out detriment to tho public set vice. The
estimates exceed the last appropriations by
less than $JO),000. One-third of that will go
to tho public schools, nnd the remainder N
for tho construction of necessnry public
buildings, and for the special purposes
During the biennial period terminating
December .11. 1891, the sum of $l,9J.',USS.i!l
w.i? paid Into the "Interest fund." Of that
sum, S1,0C,S7,-..1S was appropriated and used
to pay Inteicst on the bonded debt, on the
certificates held by the slate in trust for
ine puuue senoot aml-Bcmlnary funds nnd
the Incidental cx-ptmse-f or the' fund coin
mlssloneis. The remainder, umountlng to
$S!ll,9l1.b;, was transferred to the "sinking
fund," for use In the redemption and 10-
tlrcment or bonds. In addition then to
there was $,".2,172 17 bnlanco in the sinking
fund on .Inuiiuiv 1, 1W3; nnd $7.wo was
added thereto by a transfer from the s. 111
luary fund. For the redemption of bonds
the last general assembly appiopil.ited
$1.000,1100. In ib'.il the bond or fund mm
mlssloners nuchas. , $.;r;,tO0 of iinuiati.n d
0 per cent bonds on ihi- basis of I per cent
and called in for r. !. inptlon at par, $Jll,uoO
of 3V per cent option bonds, making .1 total
ot J2o0,0J0 paid on Hi, pilnclpnl of the bond
debt. During the 5. ir 1S9I, naiuelv, in the
mouths of Apill and July, (lie fund com
missioners paid $111 mm of matin lug li per
cent bonds. This m ikes a total of Jrtil.i.iO
of bonds actually n tired btween Jaiiii.ny
1, lV)t, and Decemb. r .11, 1S9I. This leaves
a balance of $,:iHio nf the $I.00o.iW appro
pi lated ror the redemption or bonds. The
turd commissioners lid not see pioper to
use that sum, or nn part then of, for the
reason that on Junii n 1, 1x9-,, ;ii),om r per
cent bonds mituicl In uddltlon thereto,
the sum of $llN,(i'ifl 01 1', per cent bonds will
111,111110 in Apill me I July nf the present
year. In view of this large amount of
bonds matin ing in lx'i",, the fund commis
sioners deemed It Imprudent to use the ba.
aneo lem.ilnlng In th sinking fund foi the
retiiement of bonds during last year, but
thought It wiser to leave the same to the
