House Will Probably Take up State hood Bill Soon as It Meets. Washington, Dee. 31. The house of representatives will settle down to woru as soon ns it moots Thursday, nnd possibly before tb end of tho week it will pnss tho bill providing for the admission of two new states. Thoro Is n possibility of a clash bo- twoen the Phlllpplno tariff bill and tho Joint statehood bill. Tho Philip pines bill Is already roorted, nnd. being n privileged matter, can bo called up at nny tlmo. Tho statehood Dill Is still in committee, but It Is known thnt It can bo brought out n' nny time and put before tho house. Acting in ncoonlanco with tho decis ion of the Republican caucus, It Is ex pected that tlie majority mombors of Ufa committee on rules will bring In a rnlo making the statehood bill a spec ial order for tho admission of two stntos. As the measure now stand:', and ns It will bo reported. It provider for the admission of Oklahoma nnd ludlnn Territory ns one state, with tho tmmo of Oklahoi.-N and the admission of Now Mexico nnd Arl.oiui together as ono stale, iinmed Arizona". There Is practically no opposition anywhere to tho Oklahoma proposi tion, but thero Is determined opposi tion to coupling New Mexico and Arl zona together, particularly by certain Interosts in Arizona, and tho objection Is voiced by tho nlmost unnnlmous vote for the minority.
