They had been promised Independent statehood whencvor they felt thnt thoy wcro ready for It, nnd although they showed It by a vote of Co.000 thnt thoy wero ready and wanted It, thoy have been practically denied It. Why? On nc- count of politics, nothing moro or nothing less.

AUrogatIon.,6f our trea ty pledges, absolute disregard for the lavs of congress which promised a Rtate government for thjf Indian 'Terri tory when thoy desired It.

Committee Has Added Few Amend ments to Bill Prohibition Clause Remains Intact Bill Will be Opened for Amendment. Washington, Jan. 29. Tho sceno of the statehood battlo has been tranB ferred to the sonata where anothor battle royal Is expected. A few but Immaterial amendments wcro added to tho bill In committee. The Indian Territory prohibition clause remains Intact. Tho promptness with which tho senate committee has dlsposod of tho measure has aroused much specula tlon as to tho Intentions of Mr. Hover UIko nnd the chamnlons of tho mens- uro. There Is somo tnlk that tho young chairman has a surprise tip his sleeve and intends to spring It when least expected, but stories to this effect are not generally accepted here. As a matter of fact tho United Stntcs senate la too dignified a body to stoop to such tactics and tho man who would try to work a gamo on tho unsuspecting senato might ns well lenvo Washington tho samo day be cause his usefulness would have bo come to a sudden end. The logical conclusion of the com mlttees action is that Senator Bover- Idge. Is awaro of the fact that Sena tor Foraker and his republican trap porters' ns well as tho solid Domo cratlc strongth do not proposo to per mit the measure to beeomo a law with out some opportunity to amend It. The Ohio senator wants a rc ferendum vote for Arizona and Now1 Mexico on tho subject, of jointure, and will not consent for tho measuro to pass without amending the bill to that effect Once open to amendment of course there la no felling what will happen, ,but It Is altogether reason ably cortaln that Senator Rovcrldgc must consent to amendments boforo ho can hope for the senato to pass his bill. Perhaps he knows this nnd Is approaching tho crisis reluctantly; de term' led to fight for tho measuro as It stands and only surrender at the. last moment and when there Is nn, longer hope for the bill becoming a, law as It stands. While that may bo the situation, tho Hooslor statesman always made It a point to deny any change of front In his position, Ono thing Is absolutely certain, Bevcridgo .has It In his power to defeat as well as pass tho bill. If h'o will consent to amendments tho bill will pass, if not tho measuro is doomed. Foraker will dlo before be surrenders la this fight. EXPLOSION OF BOMB.

Who Are Being Classed As Useless There Is But Little Change From the House Action In the Bill as Reported to the Senate. Washington, Jan. 29. Tho state hood bill wag reported to tho senate this aftornoon substantially as It camo from tho house. Tho report was signed by all tho republican mombcrs of tho commlttoo and by Senator Clarko of Arkansas, who will this tlnrs as ho did last session, support tho omnibus measure. Tho other demo crats of the committee gavo notlco that thoy would presont a minority r - port. Tho action of the committee was somewhat abrupt, but this was duo to tho inclination of tho commlttoo not to grant any morn healings. Sovtfral stntohcod boomers arrived from Oklahoma this morning, nnd It was reported that a number wero en routo from' Arizona and New Mexico Tho action of tho commlttoo in report lng tho bill somowhat precipitately was duo to a deslro to sparo Its.nf the ordeal of. hearing tlieso enthusl- nstlc but useless boomers. Perhaps the most Important chang mndo In tho bill Is thnt by which tin number of court towns Is reduced by two. The towns which Iofc aro Iw ton, In tho present territory of Okla homa, and Vlnlta, In Indlau Tcr-i'ury Tho court towns would be, If the bill should pass as It came from tho com mlttee, Guthrie, Enid and Oklahoma City, In Oklahoma, and Muskssw Ardmorc nnd South McAle-itr, In V dlun Territory. , Another amendment Is Miat h".to shall be. no delegates elect e J to the cofltut!onal convention from tho Osage nation, and this provision re duces tho total number- from 112 to 110. Still another change Is that the board to dlvldo tho two territories Into fifty-five districts for the purpose of electing dologates to the consti tutional convention shall bo composed of the commissioner to the Flvo Civil Ize'd iTribes and two Judges of tho United States courts, to be named by the president As yet nothing can bo said as to when tho bill will bo taken up in tho senate, but the gonoral opinion Is that Its advocates will havo need of much patlenco. Private conferences aro be ing held dally aranng the opponents of the measuro and tho time of Its consideration will depend largely on the result of these. TO SWELL THE CHEER.
