BILL IS READY. Hxu-e ouimiltee Siilmiits the Joint Statehood .Measure. "Washington. Jan. 23. Representative I la Miilton (Mich.) chairman of the house (onimitiee on trritoi ies. today submit "d a f avi -ni hi'.' report on the Hamilton joint a '"hood bill whidi provides for the admission of Oklahoma and Indian Territory as the state of Oklahoma, and provides joint statehood for New Mexico and Arizonia under th? name of Arizona. Th revolt reviews the bill in detail explaining that the capital of Arizona is to be .Santa Fe until 1S15, and that tno capital of OI Villoma is to be Guthrie, to rthe same length of time, when the people can choose ib.eii- capital sites with justice to all jiarts of the states. The leport says: "The committee considers the criti cisms as ill formed which finds fault with New Mexico because of its alleged foreign, population. "Out of a. population of 195,310 New Mexico has only IS. 6-5 foreign born in habitants, a smaller foreign born per centage than most of the states in the union. "New Mexico was made a territory in lv.o, and ever since that time the people of that teiritory have been electing their own legislatures, making their own laws, conducting their own local government and contributing revenue to the federal treasury. "Were it not that the two-fifths of its population which are native born but of Spanish df scent, have been hereto fore erroneously referred to as foreign, jt would be an aspeision upon a patriotic people, even to refer to their loyalty.

As to Arizona. Of the alleged undervaluation of prop erty in Arizona for purposes of taxation, which was warmly discussed in hear ings, the report says: "It has a total assessed valuation of tax able property as shown by the report of the secretary of the interior of $57,920,371', but it. is probable that its property is returned for taxation at a comparative ly small percentage of its market value in some instances as indicated by gov ernment reports, at not over five per cent, of its actual value." Concerning taxes in New Mexico, the report says: "The assessed valuation of property within the territory for the year 1905, was S42.578.73i'. but it is asserted that for purposes of taxation property is not re turned at much more than 20 per cent, of its market value." The report concludes as follows: "Inasmuch as congress intended by the organic act of the territory of Okla homa, that all of the original Indian territory, together with what is npw Beaver county, should become one state and inasmuch as the present territory of Oklahoma has for some time been qualified for statehood which has been deferred until the Indian Territory should be ready to be joinel therewith in statehood and "Inasmuch as conditions in the In dian Territory imperatively demand some better form of government than now exists there; and "Inasmuch as Indian lands will beal lotted in severalty betore the time when statehood can go into effect, this com mittee reports in favor of the joining of the territories of Oklahoma and the In dian Territory in one state, not however, before March 4, t07. such state to be known as the state of Oklaho;na. "To that end and to the end that the territories of Arizona and New Mexico may be joined in one state to be known as the state oj Arizona, this committee recommends that the bill do pass." MetABK HAS A MOW I'LAX. Will Have Reform in the Repair of Pavement. In the new ordinance which will be framed by City Kncine.er McCabe mid' Oity Attorney Dienning. a change in the fcrm of compelling the filling in of, excavations will be introduced. "Instead of filling in the excavations for simply the width of two feet, the distance which they usually maintain in excavating in the pavements I am going to require them to take up aboui six inches of the pavement and con crete base on cither side of the exca vation," said City Kngineer McCabe. "This will make the pavement bind better and keep it from settling down as is usual when the earth underneath settles. In addition I am gcirg to re uuiie that excavations must be main tained a period of two years instead of one as forrnetly. There are some in stances in which the season is dry and the earth does not settle until the fol lowing year." Ijrorottes See First Auto. New York. Jan. 23.

If a girl is pretty and popular the other girls are sure to form a wedge and try to block her game some way. They have started the story on a pret ty visiting girl that she is a musical comedy dancer, temporarily "resting," but it is hard to understand their idea as that is not likely to make her any less popular with the men.

New Tork. Jan. 23. A romance that had its beginning in Buffalo seven years ago had an abrupt ending when Mrs. Margaretta F. J. Abukalil, 80 years old, -began suit in the supreme court against her husband, Gabriel Abukalil. 30 years old. of the Hotel Marie Antoinette, to recover $270,000 in property, mortgages, notes and money which she transferred to him after their marriage at the Church of Chrysostom, Seventh avenue and Thirty-ninth street, on February 4, 1904. The papers in this remarkable suit were served on Mr. Abukalil at his restaurant. 16 Park Place, by Clark H. Timerman, a lawyer, of Buffalo. Abukalil, who is known as Kalil. owns, in addition to the Park Place restaurant., an eating house at 61 Courtlandt street, and an apartment house at 46 7 West 14 0th street. It is alleged he has big bank accounts in half a dozen institutions in Greater New York. le is prominent in the Syrian 'colony. In her suit Mrs. Abukalil asks for an accounting of all the moneys she has advanced to her young husband, and a lien on two restaurants, to gether with any other property that he may possess, which she alleges was purchased with her money. James W. Osborne represents Abukalil. He will immediately file an aswer to the bill of complaint and the case will probably come up in the supreme court early next week. -Said He Was '-Like a Son." Abukalil. with two brothers, was employed in an Oriental goods store in Buffalo in 1899, when he met Miss Margaretta Johnson. She was living with a maiden sister on a aluable farm at West Seneca, on the outskirts of Buffalo. When her sister died Miss Johnson seemerl to turn to new friends for comfort and sympathy. Abukalil became a freriuent caller at her home. When chaffed by friends she would only reply: "Why, he is like a son to me." Miss Johnson applied to the courts to adopt young Abukalil, but it was discovered that the law prohibits the adoption of an adult: About this time the Lackawanna Steel company decid ed to establish a great plant at Buffalo. Miss Johnson sold about fifty acres of her farm to the company for $156,000 - $81,000 in cash and a mortgage for $75,000. With a part of this money Miss Johnson established Abukalil with the firm of H. A. Meldrum & Co. of Buffalo. The Buffalo exposition followed and the young man prospered. After this he came to New York to take up studies in English and fit himself for a business life. Miss Johnson defrayed his expenses, it is said. He finished his studies and she planned a trip to Palestine with him. his brother Alex ander and the latter's wife. When this- fell through matrimony was first suggested. Flattery and Cajolery. In her complaint Mrs. Abukalil charges that the flattery, cajolery and steady attention of the ardent young man finally won her. She charges that immodiatey after their marriage her husband began to make demands for money. She cites a number of notes, mortgages, etc., that she executed in his favor, and tells of various largft sums of money she advanced to him. She further declares that her husband has given only $40 to her in the last six months and that he deserted her in an apartment at No. 201 West Seventy eighth street, going to live in luxury on her money at the Hotel Marie An toinette. Abukalil, seen bv a reporter in the of fice of his restaurant No. 16 Park place, tells a different story. "It is not true that I have deserted my wife," he said. "I love her the same as I did the day, we were married. All my troubles are due to others. These people, w horn I took into my confidence, have betrayed me and entered into a conspiracy to rob me of my wife and to get her property." Abukalil produced a big package of letters written by his present wife. One of these, written when Airs. Abukalil was Miss Johnsorr, spinster, concluded: "Always your affectionate 'mother.' M. F. J." 'Dearest One on Eartli.'' Another letter read: "Oh. you dearest one on earth to me. Remember always that you have in me a loving heart which ever beats for your welfare and whose prayers are daily for your safety and welfare." "Now does that look like I took ad vantageof an old woman'-'" asked the young benedict with a smile. "When I refused to go back to Buffalo Mrs. Abukalil, then Miss Johnson, fol lowed me to New York. She insisted that we be married. She has advanced money to start me in business. I have not dissipated any of her fortune. She went to Buffalo on business last Octo ber and when she returned I was sur prised to find that she had gone to live in the family of a man to whom I had introduced her. The man will not admit me to the house. I am staying at the Marie Antoinette because I do not care to live alone in a big apartment. I gave her $2,000 several months ago and paid a bill of $93 for her less than ten days ago." Are Yon for a Square Deal?

Man Who Killed Chris tictty Pleads Guilty to MhiisIh lighter. Henry Music, who murdered Chris Getty on the night of October 11, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the fourth degree in the district court this morning. On the night that the mur der was committed Music was sleep ing in a joint in North Topeka. where he had gone to sleep off the effects of a drunk. -Getty came in later in the night, and without a word of warning Music drew a reyolyer from under his pillow and fired, the bullet striking his victim in the forehead and producing nearly instant death. There had been no quarrel, and the men had been the best of friends. The act was one of a mind crazed with drink. When arrested by the police Music was so drunk that he could not talk. In the morning after he had sobered so that he could talk he denied any knowledge of the crime and would not believe for a time that he had killed his friend. There are several things which prompted County Attorney Hungate to permit Music to plead guilty to man slaughter. The defendant, who has been out on bond since the commis sion of the crime, is a physical and mental wreck and sufferer from asthma, and probably will not live to serve out the sentence which he will receive on the manslaughter charge. Another peculiar feature about the crime is the fact that the only witness to the murder died several weeks ago. and if the case had been fought there was some doubt as to whether a conviction could have been secured. CAUGHT IN BELTING. AV. A. Mct'ullnuxli Has Arm Broken anil Crushed. W. A.

Mr. Burr is confident that oil and gas will be found. The work on the well is pro gressing steadily. WILL BE APPEALED. Kansas City esro Case to CJo to the Highest Court.
