Roy, N. M.,
Dear Sir:-
Enclosed you will find a short ar
ticle pertaining to the drafting of the
constitution of the new State of New
Mexico, and the delegates that should
be sent by honest voters to form the
same. As this article is of deep im-

the entire new state, I trust that you
will find space for it in the next
issue of your valuable paper, the

A Reader,
After the passage of the long fought
for Statehood bill, naturally there
comes an era of restlessne. s, hustling
and scurry ing to and fro among the
people through-out the new state, for
such a t m-i, ry important one
and indeed a C -1 moment in the
affairs of the con '- y. The event of
most interest to t "- v?n- of every
tection i;; the U -;' ( of thj constitu
tion of. the new auUe ',,tate, .in Jaot
the whole future, rests on the very
word, taa 0 JSriTJl'IJ-i, wa'uli is
formed by those sent to draft the same.
.To form this constitution, several
delegates are selected by the people to
go to the (,'apitttl and there in a body,
draft the laws etc. , for the state. This
gathering if statesmen is called the
Constitutional Convention. Uncle
Sam say.s we must form a constitution
to meet his approval or we get no
statehood! This must be a constitu
tion equally just to alt, fair to the
wage earner and fair to the capitalist.
Not one where a "measly dollar or a
pá.t y few throws everything to the
advantage of the wealthy and over
balance the scales of ever blind jus
tice." And now comes A. S. Ilushkevit. of

This assertion formed the sun-.
stance of the testimony given by Sen
ator Curtis today before the commit
tee appointed by the house of repre
sentatives Investigate what is
known as the McMurray contracts.
Senator Curtis related the details of

'The president," said Senator Cur-
opening the question of Indian enroll
ment It seems ttikt there are about
fourteen thousand claffti'anis who as
sert that they are Indians and who are
left off the rolls. I told the president
that it would be a serious mistake 'o
reopen that question. The president
then asked about McMurray, and
what we thought of allowing ten per
cent as attorney's fees. Both Mr. Sher
man and I replied that we did not be
lieve that the Indians needed any at
torneys on the basis of ten per cent,
or on any other basis. We called at
tention to the fact that treaties be-
tween the Indians and the government '
called for the sale of the land by the
government, and that no counsel was
"We pointed out," he continued,
that to give attorney's fees simply
would deprive the Indians of that
much profit guaranteed them by the
government. That formed the sub
stance of our talk." .
More charges of attempted bribery
in Oklahoma land deals were made be
fore the congressional Investigating
committee today,- D. C. McCurtain, a
Choctaw Indian, son of the governor
of the Choctaw nation and attorney
for that tribe, testified that J. F. Mc
Murray had offered him $25,000 not
to approve the land deal.
"That has become the actual belief
that they have to give up a good por
tion of what they get In attorney's
fees," replied Hollman.
In a statement to the committee,
and without going on the stand to
day, McMurray declared that the con
tracts came to him originally against
his desire. He said that the Indians,
at a "war council" had demonstrated
their impatience at the govern
ment's slowness In selling the land
and had called upon him to take the
Job at ten per cent, which he did
with reluctance.
