The Difference Arises Over the Degree of Territorial Form of Government to be Established Legislation Hlnges.on Triumph. Special to tho Ardmorclto. Washington, Jan. 17. Tho commit- too an torrltorlos nnd tho committeo on Indian affairs of iiic Iioiiro havi. locked horns upon tho proposition of creating a territorial form of govern ment for Indian Torrltory. Tho dlffot once arises ovor tho uogrco or torrltor Inl form of govornmont which should bo established. Tho committeo on tor rltorlos will report favorably tho bill In troduced by Representative Moon, creating a full Hedged territorial gov ernment. This Is already, a foregone conclusion. Tho sub committee, which hnu charge of tho bill will report It back to tho full eommlttco within the next week with it favorable recom mendation. Tho bill, ns It will bo re ported from the committeo on terri tories will provide for tho nppolntmont of a governor by tho presldont who will hae full oxecutlvo authority, tho appointment of a secretary of state, a treasurer, auditor nnd superintend ent of public Instruction, nnd creat ing a legislature, to consist of two ousos, styled, respectively, tho sen ate nnd houso of representatives, to bo elected by qualified voters In tho territory. Provisions for gonarnl elections is made and for tho qualification of elec tors. Rules and regulations governing the legislative assembly nro also de fined by tho bill, together with tho boundary of senatorial nnd legislative districts. A full Judlclury is created, and tho territory Is given representa tion In the National congress by n dologato to bo elected by n majority of tho qualified voters. Tho mombors of tho committee on Indian affairs, who have a thorough knowledgo of existing conditions in Indian Torrltory nro opposed to the bill favored by tho committeo on Territories for .many roas us. Tho most important objections that thoy have Is that It will have tho wny to tlio creation of two statos out of Oklahoma and Indian Territories, sec ondly, because It will disturb list ing conditions In Indian Torrltory, as that territory is not now ready for th establishment of a full-fledged territorial form ot government. Tfio leading mombors of tho commit teo on Indian affairs beliovo that thoy havo a remedy which will euro exist- B ovlls complained of In tho Terri tory in a bill Introduced by Congress man Curtis, provided for a limltod territorial form of government. Thai bill authorizes tho appointment of a govornor by tho president, by and with tho advlco and consent of tho sen ate, a secretary of state, and gives tho Territory representation In tho Nation al congress through a dolegats to bo duly elected by tho people Tho gov ernor under tho Curtis bill, will bo "superintendent of Indian affairs" In tho Territory and also ox officio chair man of tho Dawes commission. Ho will hnvo full oxecutlvo nuthorlty In all matters portnlning to tho Torrl tory, but hlc appointment and tho ox erclso of nuthorlty conferred upon him would not Intorforo In any wny, with oxistlng tribal conditions. Tho various nations could contlnifo In oxlstonco un til tho tlmo ot their dissolution, .under their troanco, six yaros later. Thoirtrl bal taxes could bo continued tho samo ns now, nnd tho rifiMs which thoy now oxorclso, undor treaty pro visions would not bo Infringed upon. Tho enactment of this law could not bo used as a pretext, later on,, for tho creation of a soparato Stato out of Indian territory, as woum bo tho ro "suit snourd tuo Moon bill bo enacted Into a law. It Is evident that thcro will bo a claBh betweon tho mombors of tho two commlttocs when tho subject comes up for consideration on o door of tho houso. The leading members of tuo committee on Indian affairs wi.l then present to tho houso tho ovll effects which would follow tho enactment of the Moon bill, and the members of tho committeo aro In a much better position to throw light upon tho subject and advlso tho houso than the mouthers ot tho committeo on Terruoiies, for tho renson that the lending mem bora ot uie comi te have dovoted from five to ten year to studying conditions In tho Territory nnd endeavoring to mure the vexatious problems which hnvo boon presented to congress year uf tor year for dlspoflttlon. It seoins probable that tho discus sion may rosult In tho adoption of the Curtis bill n a substitute for the Moon bill when the question readies a vote In the houso. This would pavo the wny for the enrly onactmont of tho Curtis bill nnd thus give to tho people of the Indian Torrltory a gov ornor. secretary ot state, and n dole gate to congress. It is tho gonornl opinion of tho sonato ond of tho capi tal that such n plan, as Is contnlncd In tho Curtis bill, would moot with Ilttlo or no opposition nt that end of the national capital. Legislation for In dian Territory, thororore, seems to hinge upon tho triumph of tho houso committee on Indian affairs ovor the committeo on Territories In tho pas cage of bills prosontcd.
