OKLAHOMA OITV, Kcb 23.ln
an attempt to reach sonio conclu
sion on Investigations, the houso
democrats caucused today, but end
ed tlie session without Rotting any
where They discussed Campbell
nusi-cll and his criticism ot the gnv
rrnor'M parole office. It Is pcrsslblo
that another caucuH will bo held to
morrow morning, Ah tho house ad
journed until tomorrow afternoon,
some of tho caucus members wanted
to start out right now and investi
gate. Others wcro moro cautlout. An
attempt was made to record tho son
timent of tho munibers, hut this
filled of any dcflnttencss. It U be
lieved, however, that If anything Is
to bo done with Russell all there will
b to It Is to require him to proceed
under provisions of rulo No. ISO,
adopted by tho house In 1915 relative
to Investigations. That requires that
hero a person ha.-i-anytliliig to com
plain of It niUbt bo presented to the
investigating commltten by affidavit.
This would compel Hussol) to brine
hla evidence before, tho committee
nd the latter would be Its own Judgo
If an Investigation wcro warranted.
According to a poll of the senato
members on tho' wman suffrago
amendment, only 20 votes are con
, ceded by tho opposition to be In
favor of ratification of It. N'Inotecn
arc counted among tho opposition
who will vote against, ratification,
but a number will voto to submit it
to a referendum. Among the number
who will voto to ratify oro several
who already have expressed thom
iflves as willing to submit It to the
people, but they will voto for It In
the shape It comes to them first.

able this can easily bo dpno In tho
