Washington, May 17. Neither President Roosevelt nor the secretary of war. Mr. Taft, has ever authorized anyone to say that the president would reject the Oklahoma constitution or refuse to issue the proclamation ad mitting the new state if the proposed constitution were adopted by the peo ple. It is true that both the president and secretary of war regard the con stitution as objectionable in many re pects. As the leader of his party, the president might suggest with full pro priety opposition of the people to the constitution which would result in its defeat. If the constitution Is not republican in form, he would be required under his oath and the enabling act to re fuse to recognize the new state. But in doing this he wouia not provide ior a republican form of government. That both the president and Secretary Taft sanction the opposition of Re publican leaders in Oklahoma to the constitution is true. But any state ment from whatever quarter that the president will disapprove the constitu tion if adopted is without authority from him or from his secretary of war.
