In est is every man's interest. II and strong business management tion to his relation to the system. small means must necessarily enjoy the success ol his more lortuuale neighbor. Taken as a whole all must rise or lall together." The rtesident In wns Joint statehood loi New Mexico and Arizona and Indian Territory and Oklahoma, and is strictly opposed to gambl ing in the territories. While tin- light in congress on tin- statehood iuestion will be bitter, the President's iulluence with that body will be vetv great, lie holds that great corporations and railroad rates should be under lederal control, and that the interstate commerce commission should have power to fix rates. I le is strongly opposed to railroad re bates, lavors an inspection ol railroad conipanys' book's on the plan of bank examinations, lie is opposed to railroad employes working long hours, and favors the abolition ol child labor, and a law regulating the condition ol working women. The President heartily recommends lederal control of all life in surance companies and societies, and asks for a maximum and mini mum larill schedule. He asks congress to use great caution in the expendituie ol public money, but warns them against false economy, and urges strict business methods in fill departments of government. He lavors a law prohibiting' corporations from contributing money to political campaign lunds, and a law punishing any one for using money to shape legislation. The President stands for peace, praises the Monroe Doctrine, and would like a law that would properly punish officials who are guilty of infringement. Laws regulating the disposition ol public lands should be strictly adhered to; the Chinese immigration laws should stand in tact, but students, business men and professional men should be allow ed to come unmolested. The President says the canal will be built and asks Congress lor an appropriation for the snme in order that the work may mil be delayed. The plan ol the cniml has not been determinnd.

Or IT IS ARIZONA "THE GREAT." Washington, Dec. 5. -Delegate W. II . Andrews had a long consultation today with Chairman Hamilton of the House commit teeon territories, concerning th? bill provid ing for joint statehood for New Mexico and Arizona. Chairman Hamilton insisted on a joint statehood bill which will be substantially like the one which passed the House a year ago and which will contain some amend, mums, which, it is thought, will make it more satisfactory to the people of the two territories. Republican loaders in the Senate and House predict that the omnibus bill a year ago, with some amendments and creating Oklahoma and Indian Territory as one state and New Mexico and Arizona as one state, will bo passed.
