no noothcrco other comment mment than a brief briefsJat state

he did not wish to interfere w wl w1h ith h

The Chatr Chair thereupon named n amed asc as con m
ferees Chairman Beveridse and Mr Ir

Democrat De mocrat Both the two firstnamed
Senators Senators opposed oppos d the bill bllias as it passed
the Senate The conferees will hold
their t r first meeting meetin g gon on Monday MOilI1u MOfii hLY
Mr Morgans s Par t t
The Senate met at 950 9500dock oclock toda

talking out Qutthe the time if lie hesQ so determines
His Hisyielc1ln yielding today was merely to
the Senate S nate in better position in refer
ence to the stand taken by the House
Such matters of official ofilc1alprocedure procedure
the appointment of conferees c nferees on oIla a re
guest uest preferred by the other ther house hou e
I considered nsldere d matters calling 1l1n g for fO I the exer
else Ise of all proper courtesy courtes between
houses Some Senators knowing
temper emper of the House leaders t
That further delay in naming conferees
implying disregard for the wishes wlshe of
House might lead to to the House Hou5edec1fn declin
ing to come to ohy ny > agreement
at the last moment
Interest In Conferees
All interest in er8t turns now to the work
l the conferees The House is deter
t mined tGsUlnd to stand by its its bill for two
out of the four Territories thus setthin
s the Statehood question altogether
Is also the view of Chairman
land I and Mr Nelson but under their thelrap ap
pointment P ointm nt as conferees they will W m o
I course feel bound to represent
wishes of the Senate so far and so Ion
I as there thercseeh16 seems any chance OfSUCCC5S of success
I As the House is not notdlsposed disposed to yield
a compromise on the part of the bit
affecting only OI Oklahoma lah ma and
Territory TerrItor a disagreement jl agrcementf of the con
ferees is of course expecte expected d ihl
l would then be reported r ported back to th
Senate and House which would be
signal for Mr Morgan Moru Moran an to submit
observations which he K Kewlthheld liSritIihcid withheld today
It Is admitted that it would take takeMr
t Morgan and Mr Teller a long time t
conclude if they determined to
their views in full or oronly only partially so
even ven Mr Bard B rdof of California is read
L to do his utmost to prevent the
of the bill with any joint Statehood
New Mexico l1exl ound and Arizona but some
the other Senators who opposed oppo ed the
are nrenot not go osurc sure any longer in
opposition
Chairman Beveridge expects no
on the bill at this session No Noone one
ever predict however what
may come about In the Senate when j
r compromise Is presented With
sides declaring themselves thcms rves unable to
the finish the recommendation of th
conferees is not expected to be bCBuch such a
S I to clear the atmosphere
1 11o Some Are More Hopeful
In spite splteQf of f Chairman Beveridges vie
that there will be no Statehood legisla
tion at this session some Senators 8 nat r
l opposition do not hesitate to predic
that the House will not dare daretorefus to refus
Statehood to Oklahoma a aand and Indian
ritory
t If the conferees should bring in n
S report favorable fa yorable to that part of th
t bill these Senators declare de lare both house
I would find it necessary to accept suci
a report
Chairman Beveridge is decidedly dccl op
posed to splitting up the bill In th tht
way preferring to insist upon hit
inal contention for two two joint j < States b o
else etschnvc have no legislation at all Thos
who have opposed him in the Senat
r would regard an agreement in Okla 0km
horna and Indian Territory as a grea
Victory for themselves thcm elv a
S With Vlth such s1Jchopposlng opposing influences at wor
