Statehood Bill to
Occupy the Senate
Until It Is Out of the Way Other
Measures Will Have to Eemain
on the Sidetracks. t
WASHINGTON, Jan. The intention
is to keep the Statehood bill to the front
In the Senate during the present week,
With the hope on the pnrt of Its friends
that by the end of the present week they
may be uble to get a vote on this. Thus
far the opponents of the measure havo
held out stUbbbrniy against naming a day
for a vote, and, while they do not say In,
explicit terms that it is their Int.. .Hon
to filibuster agalr.st the passage of the
bill, Il Is evident that unless a com
promise can be reached for the limina
tlon of Arizona from the measure they
will make un effort to prevent a vote be
fore the close of the present session.
On this account there Is coming to bt
more or less discussion of plans for tht
modification of the bill, and most of the
talk gravitates toward the suggestion ofj
Senator Foraker for a separation of th-.
votes of Arizona and New Mexico on the
question of admission or that suggested,
by Senator Bard confining the operation
of the bill to the creation of the State old
Oklahoma out of the Territory of Okla-"
homa and Indian Territory, and entirely1
eliminating Arizona and New Mexico, from
In the meantime the debate will go on.
Senator Bate, the senior Democratic mem
ber of the Committee on Territories, said
that u number of Democratic Senators
would be prepared by Monday lo take tho
floor In Opposition to the bill in Its pres
ent shape. He would not admit a willing.
ness to accept tho Foraker or BarH
amendments, but said that either of then
would be debated.
