Will Bring $30,000,000 to Inland
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 16.—The
National Bank of Commerce last
night submitted to the wheat inter
ests of the Inland Empire a plan for
moving the wheat of that region
which if adopted, will result in the
immediate starting of the wheat on
its way to Europe and the orient by
way of Puget sound.
A meeting of the grain exporters
will be held at Tacoma tomorrow
morning, to which the representa
tives of the wheat interests from
across the Cascades will submit the
bank's proposition and ask that the
exporters meet the conditions offer
ed by the bank and so start the $30,
000,000 crop of the Inland Empire
on its way across the water. This
plan whereby the northwest banks
will get assistance that may be desir
ed to set in motion this valuable
wheat crop was formulated at the re
quest of U. K. Loose, representing the
wheat Interests, and after the officials
of the National Bank of Commerce
had carried on a telegraphic corres
pondence with their agents in New
York, beginning in the morning and
extending through the day.
The fundamental element in the
project is the exchange for wheat of
sight drafts to be accepted in New
York within 15 days of the date of
the delivery of the wheat to the ex
porter. Ordinarily the wheat is
paid for in sight drafts collectable
at Ixmdon, which very much prolongs
the period during which accounts
for the shippers have to be carried
by the local banks.
R. R. Spencer, first vice president
of the National Bank of Commerce,
stated that if the exporters would
agred to this proposition for the pay
ment of wheat shipments by 15-day
right drafts on New York, he would
undertake to supply the necessary
rash and credit for the Inland banks
which would enable them to get the
wheat on its way to Europe.
Mr. I.oose recently went on a tour
of inspection through the wheat
elds of Adams, Lincoln and Douglas
inties. Returning from this trip
day he conferred at once with the
Weal bankers with the results Btated
After the meeting of the export
ers tomorrow Mr. Loose will submit
the results of his efforts to the com
mittee of the bankers from the wheat
section. He stated tonight that he
had little doubt they would find It
one which would enable them to start
the wheat on its way to Puget sound.

Great Demonstrations in New State
of Oklahoma.
GUTHRIE, Okla.. Nov. 16.—This
was a red letter day in the history of
Oklahoma, marking Its admission as
a state of the Union, and great cel
ebrations and demonstrations were
held in every city and town of both
former territories. Receipt of the
news that the president had formally
issued hls proclamation was greeted
with the ringing of bells, the tooting
of whistles and other manifestations
of joy. A feature of the day was a
great inaugural parade In honor of
Governor Haskell, Oklahoma's first
chief executive under statehood. In
which many military bodies, civic or
ganizations, students and Indian
chiefs participated. The oath of
office was administered to Governor
C. N. Haskell, who led the democrat
ic state ticket to victory In the recent
state election, by Leslie G. Niblack.
editor of the Guthrie Daily Leader.
After the oaths of office had been ad
ministered to the justices of the su

state officers were inducted into office
A barbecue was held today and the
celebration closes tonight with the
governor's inaugural ball, at which

city today, and many Indians, in
cluding several chiefs, are taking
part in the general Jubilation over
the actual arrival of statehood.

have assisted in making this a "red
letter day" in fact as well as in name
by printing thousands of red letters
announcing the resources and oppor
tunities of the new commonwealth

Final Admission Acts Completed
WASHINGTON. Nov. 1$.—"Now,
therefore, I, Theodore Roosevelt,
president of the United States of
America, in accordance with the act
of congress aforesaid and by the au
thority thereof, announce the result
of said election to be certified and do
hereby declare and proclaim that the
terms and conditions prescribed by
congress to entitle the state of Ok
lahoma to admission Into the Union
on an equal footing with the origin
al thirteen states Is now accomplish
ed. In testimony whereof I have
hereunto set my hand and caused
the seal of the United States to be
affixed, this, the sixteenth day of
November, 1807.
With the presidential proclama
tion, of which the foregoing is the
concluding paragraph. Oklahoma
was today admitted as the forty-sixth
state In the Union. The new state
includes Oklahoma and Indian terri
tories. Oklahoma proper was organ
ized as a territory May 2, 1890, and
was formerly part of Indian Terri
tory. It has an area of 39,030 square
miles and In 1900 its population was
398,331. Indian Territory has an
area of 31,400 square miles and Its
population in 1900 was 392,060. C.
N. Haskell, democrat, will be the first
governor of the new state and will
be Inaugurated today at Guthrie.
All the state officers, and nearly all
the congressmen and state legislat
ors, are Democrats, and both repre
sentatives of the new state in the
United States Senate will be of that
political faith.
The proclamation of President
Roosevelt admitting Oklahoma to
statehood is the first of the kind he
has ever issued, as no state has been
admitted since Utah, on January 4,
1896. Instead of being written in
long hand on parchment and decor
ated with fancy scrolls, as all for
mer state papers of this kind have
been, the proclamation was written
with a typewriter. In its phraseol
ogy the Oklahoma document bears a
close resemblance to that issued by
President Cleveland in admitting
The signing of the constitution by
President and the issuance of hls
proclamation today were the last
stepB in the long fight for statehood
made by the people of the territories
The constitution of Oklahoma was
written by a convention composed of
100 Democrats and twelve Republi
cans. It is said to be the most radi
cal document ever adopted by a state,
and by William Jennings Bryan has
been declared "superior to the na
tional constitution." The radical
provisions embraced In the constltu
tion are not favored by President
Roosevelt, who considers that the
constitution makers have usurped
the functions of legislators. Before
signing the document the president
made It clear that there were many
features which did not meet with his
personal approval, but that he re
garded It as his official duty to sign
the document, since It conformed to
the provisions of the enabling act.
Gen. Booth and President Roosevelt
Are Types
if we knew what manner of man
the minister of the future would be
we could prophesy as to the future
of the Christian Church. So says the
Congregationallst and Christian
World ( Boston) In commenting upon
the speculations on this theme pre
sented by President Cuthbert Hall,
of Union Theological seminary, in a
late number of the Atlantic Monthly.
The minister of yesterday we know
as a clearly defined type. "He was a
man set apart to have special inti
macy with God and to speak with au
thority because of intimate know
ledge of divine will." The minister
of today, Tbe Congregationallst con
tinues, is "an experiment." "A
church takes him on trial and the
trial is usually short." Tbe minis
ter of tomorrow, this paper confesses,
is "an unknown quantity"; but it
finds in General Booth and Theodore
Roosevelt two types of preachers that
it thinks offer examples of what tbe
future may demand. We read;

ritories west of the kttaeour! are tak
ing part in the inland convention in
Wltchtta today. Delegations are here
from all the larger Inland cities and
towns of the southwest, the object
of the gathering being for the pur
pose of working against appropria
tions for so-called navigable streams
which are Incapable of development
as practical waterways. It la alleged
that many ot these appropriations are
aaked for by communities which
have no natural opportunities tor
waterway transportation, but which
hope to make a purely artificial show
ing for the purpose ot securing rail
way freight advantages over inland
cities, baaed on alleged water com
Plans for ending this abuse are
being discussed by the delegates at
today's convention. Resolutions will
be paBI>ed Mklng that , vold
appropriations for waterways when
actual transportation of freight on
such waterways is not practicable.
It is contended that lu a great many
cases railroad rates are based on
water competition that Is purely the
oretical. As a case In point. It is
alleged that not for many years has
a car of flour been shipped by water
rrorn Minneapolis to Galveston, yet
gives the gulf city a lower rate on
flour from Minneapolis, hauled en
tirely by rail, than is given Dallas,
Port Worth and other inland cities
of Texas, despite the fact that the
flour passes through these cities en
route to Galveston.
The convention will petition con
gress to amend the interstate com
merce law In such a way as to alle
vlate the present freight rate dis
criminations against inland cities
brought about by alleged water com
petition which does not exist.. The
delegates announce themselves In fa
vor of all practical waterways Im
provements. but that they are op
posed to the many chimerical schemes
now being fostered through the In
fluence of certain congresamen.

Adams and Glover at Birthday
RATHDRUM. Idaho, Nov. iff.—la
the case of Steve Adams today lu
which he Is charged with the murder
of Fred Tyler uothing of an exciting
nature took place.
Nearly all morning was devoted to
the examination of the members ot
the Mason family.
Orville Mason was called to the
stand. He stated he was hauling hay
up the river in the summer of 1904.
He claimed that Steve Adams was in
that locality until August 8, the date
of which he easily recalled, he said,
on account of hia father's birthday
which was August 7. Ou that date
dinuer was given for bis father
when Steve Adams was present. He
first heard of Uoule's death from
Frank Price and about oue hour after
this he saw Adams and Simpkins
which was intended by the defense
to show that It was quite Impossible
for them to have beeu present at the
killing. He was asked by Attorney
Knight, "Hnve you talked with your
attorney's about this case since you
came here?" "Yes. sir." "And they
told you to answer these questions
Just in this way, did they not?"
Heilman objected to this kind ot
questions, the court sustaining him.
At this point Attorney Knight Jump
ed to his feet aqd accused the court
of allowing similar questions to be
asked by Harrow, to which the court
said that the prosecution had made
no objection. All the attorneys en
gaged in an altercation when all
talked together. Judge Wood sprang
up to the front of the platform and
emphatically ataled that when the
court had made a ruling, it did not
propose to have the lawyers wrangle
over it.
Loyd Mason was next culled. He
corroborated hls brother out
cross-examination he contradicted
all the other witnes s e s besides that
testimony which he gave at the for
mer trial. Formerly like the other
wltneeses he claimed Steve Adams
to have been the only visitor at his
father's birthday dinner. Today he
stated that Newton Glover was also
present. It Is believed today that
the case wlil go to the jury before
the close of next week. Court ad
journed at noou today until Monday
on account of the lack of witnesses
being preaent. much better progress
having been made than had been cal
culated upon
The defense has ten more witnes
ses to examine. Steve Adams will he
placed upon the stand Wednesday.
