Washington (D. C), Xec. 7.
The influence of President Roose
velt is being felt in the statehood
fight in the Senate, although there
has been no public statement of the
President's attitude. He has talked
with several Senators on the propo
sition and told them all that after
long-continued consideration he had
reached the conclusion that Okla
homa was the only territory' at
present nucu ior siaieaooq. A"cj

New York, Dec. 4. It comes
from high authority that a survey
for a new railroad line from Salt
Lake City to San Francisco has
been completed; that the, purvey
marks out a route 150 miles shorter
than the Southern Pacific, and that
the projected line can be built at a
cost as low as $20,000 a mile.
In whose interest this survey
was made cannbt be learned, but

been iuclincd to favor the admission
of all three territories, but, that a
study of conditions in New Mexico
and Arizona had convinced him
that the time had not yet arrived
for taking the irrevocable stcp'of
admitting ihew to statehood.
The President's arguments against
admitting New Mexico are that the
population of the Territory is back
ward, both in learning the English
language and in active participation
in political life: the courts, he had1
noted, arc conducted largely in
Spanish for the convenience of the
population. As for Arizona, the
President believes that the agricul
tural resources of the Territory
have been developed quite fully,
and not many more people may be.

that the land left available is arid,
and can only be developed by costly'
irrigation works. The mining

President Roosevelt's views are
being made known quietly to a
number of Senators who showed'1
signs of favoring the, omnibus bill'
and the result has been to make,
them pause and consider. Senator
Quay claimed to have eighteen Re
publican Senators on his side last
week. His latest claim, it is un
derstood, is fourteen, and when the
list of the fourteen was shown to
advocates of the substitute bill they
challenged three names Piatt of
New York, Scott of West Virginia
and Clark of Wyoming. Scott, is
unquestionably in favor of the Ok
tors. The idea also suggests itself
that this new line may have con
nection with the San Francisco
Terminal and Ferry Company
which recently reached the water
front of San Francisco bay at Oak
laud, and, according to yesterday's
dispatches, is preparing to build
from Stockton to Sacramento and
through Bcckwith Pass eastward.'

Francisco ovsr a route 150 miles
shorter than the Southern Pacific
between Salt Lake and San Fran
cisco, the proposition would be a
difficult one for the Union Pacific
to meet; It is possible the new
route referred to was part of the
Gould-St. Paul plan entertained
previous to the surrender by the
Union Pacific to the St. Paul of the

The pau-pau is a quilt. Wheu
you first make a quilt you must cut
the bark of a certain tree then take
it and pound it very hard. Pouud
it every day for a week, then dry
it out for two or three days. After
it is dried pound it again for three
days and then dried again. Three
times you must do this. After it is
done they take this down to the sea
and spread it over a stone then
pound it and putting some sea
water on it they lay this quilt be
tween some stones so the sea will
not wash it away. For three weeks
they take it out and they will put
some sweet odor on it and then
dry it out. Wheu this is done
they take it and use it.
The tapa beaters are made of
wood and some are made of stoue.
Some tapa beaters have many designs
on them. This also use for pound
ing the pau-pau. The round tapa
beater are used for pounding the
bark and the tapa beater which has
many designs on them are used
when the quilt is done to make
designs on them.
