tdam Bede .Ketbrts to Slur -From
New Xork by Scoffing at Her
Notorious Senators Bill
Will Pass Today.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 24. When tho
Bmoka of the liveliest legislative battle
of the sussion had cleared up in the House
today. Speaker Cannon and his organiza
tion were in complete control and the
joint statehood programme of the Admin
istration had been adopted.
Forty-three Republican "insurgents"
vent down to defeat, having voted vainly
-with the Democrats to gain control of the
rule the terms of which arc to govern
the statohood bill In the passage through
the House. The vote ordering the previ
ous question on the rule was 192 ayes and
163 noes. This clearly defined the oppo
sition's strength, the full vote of which
was polled, and little interest was taken
In the vote for the adoption or the rule,
which immediately followed and was car
ried by a majority of 30.
Previous to the vote the debate on the
rule had proceeded under high tension.
The speeches were short but the words
uttered were hot and full of strng. The
veterans, Payne, Dalzell and Grosvonor,
upheld the organization. Pitted against
them were the leaders of the insurgents,
Babcock, aiondcll and Jones (Wah.).
Tawney, one of the erstwhile insurgents,
urose and announced his acquiescence In
the will of the organization, and lark
Smith, the Delegate from Arizona, Just
us sorrowfully interpreted this actiou as
t-lm "mncl onllnj mct oil
The rule adopted provides that the bill
prantlng statehood to Oklahoma and the
Indian Territory as "Oklahoma." and
Arizona and New Mexico as "Arizona,"
should be debated until 3 o'clock tomor
row and then voted on without opportu
nity for debate- The House adjourned at
6:80 o'clock, after agreeing to meet at 11
Williams T,cads Attack.
Williams stated that the rule in ques
tion" denied to the House the right to
vote on the question of admitting
elthor of the four territories separate
ly. It was holding a whip over the
House, compelling it to agree to admit
Arizona and New Mexico as one state,
which was undesirable, in order to
admit Oklahoma and Indian Territory,
to which no one had objections.
Williams yielded 10 minutes to Mon-
Vll MlfV DL im- JK'pUDIICXll 111
sargoms, who expressed the hope tiat
thp demand for the nrevlous mmstinn
would Do voted down. Mondell denied
that the bill was a Republican party
measure; every man, woman and child
in New Mexico was opposed to beinjj
joined to Arizona. There was a largo
number in the House who, if their
hands wore not tied, would vote against
joining these two territories. He char
acterized the proposed rule as a viola
tion of party pledges.
Grosvonor Defends Utile.
A reply to Mondoll was mode by
Grosvonor (O.). who maintained that
the joint statehood bill was a Repub
1 loan measure. The President was for
it and the House in caucus had indorsed
It. That it was a party question, he
said, would be easily recognized with
in the next hour and a half, as every
Democratic membor on the floor would
vote against the rule and trie bill.
"When Grosvenor had concluded. Wil
liams protested with great warmth
to make this a partisan question.
The question of the permanent welfare
of the people of the two territories, ho
said, should never be a partisan meas
ure. Opposition to the rule was made by
Adams (Wis.), one of the Republican
. TAppoaling for the rights of the peo
ple or tho great State of New York.
Payne (N. Y.) protested aaglnst equal
representation in the Senate from the
territories. "Should the Providence of
God," he said, "Inflict the country
ivith Democratic rule, we should have
Bede Ijaslics New Yorkers.
J. Adam Bede (Minn.), began: "If wc
'have Democratic rule, it won't be the
Providence of God; it will be the mis
takes of the Republican leaders."
"Why," he continued, after order
had been secured, "tho 'Payne' speake
about tho New York Senators most
people are trying to forget them." It
was several minutes after this state
ment before the vigorous efforts of
Speaker Cannon availed against tho
shouts, laughter and applause.
"The gentleman fwm Minnesota,"
warned the Speaker, "does know, or he
ought to know, that his remark is
against the rules, of the House and
against all parliamentary usage."
"I only 'intended my reference in the
kindlles tsplrit," remarked Bede, who
proceeded. He was tired, ho said, "of
the treatment accorded the West, gen
erally reslgnated the 'wild and woolly
West.' It reminded him of the daughter
of an old Kentucky Colonel, who said
she was 27 years old before she knew
that 'damn Yankee was not one word.
It was usual," be said "when they want
to whip us into line, to use the name
of 'tho great President,' but when this
President is opposing- something the
East wants, he is 'the broncho states
man.' "Why," continued Mr. Bede, "you say
they have not got enough 'folk Never
beard of a Senator representing 'folk. "
Reverting to the early days in New
-England, Bede convulsed 'the House
again by declaring that the Pilgrim
Fathers would not have landed there,
had they hot been seasick.
,- " Votins Aerainst Judsmient.
Tawney briefly explained that in
hewing to-.tHQ-leaders-or-tae House iajjductefl byfhlg-cotfain ' WI11140 S. Cowl,
supporting the rule, he 'did so against
his own Judgment.
Jones (Wash.) profosscd more love
for Speaker Cannon than any man in
the country and also regard for the
President, but he absolutely refused to
go aaginst his conscience and follow
them in this matter. He had supported
the present proposition two years ago,
nut since then he had visited Arizona.
After seeing the splendid civilization
there, he should not vote now to de
Smith, Delegate from Arizona, who
pokc for three minutes, scorned some
what depressed. The action of Taw
ney, in taking tho floor against him
was, ho said, the most "unkindest" cut
Joint Statehood a Crime.
Dc Armond (Mo.) and Kahn (Cal.)
spoke against the rule, when four and
a. half mluutes were yielded to Bab
cock (Wis.), leader of the insurgents.
He had, he aid, always been opposed
to joint statehood. He considered join
ing Arizona and New Mexico a crime.
He said the argument against single
'statehood was "wc shall have four
In this connection he referred to
the passage of the Dingley affair bill,
which, he said, could not have passed
but for the vote of Sonator Jones, of
Nevada, whose every amendment was
accepted. He scouted the idea that
those states would be Democratic
Debate was closed by Dalzell in fa
vor of the rule. Dalzell based his ar
gument in opposition to single state
hood that it was unjust to the Eastern
section that Senators who represented
nothing but "roeks and sand" should
have as much weight as Senators rep
resenting large Eastern states.
Jtulc Is Adopted.
Dalzell demanded a roll-call on the
previous question on the adoption of
the rule. The roll-call began at 11:45
o'clock. During the discussion of the
rule, Mrs. Roosevelt and Miss Alice oc
cupied eats in the executive gallery.
The Speaker requested the call of his
own name and voted for the rule. The
rule was adopted, the vote being 192
ayes, ICS nays.
Williams asked for a recapitulation
of the vote, which was granted after
some objection by the Spoakor, who
stated that the rule had boon carriod
by a large majority and such action
was not usual.

Coming Wedding Brings
Whom Shall We Invite Is Perplexing the
Correspondence of New York rrcas.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 18. Problem? of
statecraft have given way tempo
rarily in tho White House to another
problem, probably far more vexing than
the most Intricate international question
the President 1ms tackled. The great
question today is "Whom shall wo invite
to Miss Alice Roosevelt's wedding on
It isn't that there it any s3arcity of man
and women entitled to invitations. The
trouble is there arc too many persons
whom the President's family and tho
family of Representative Longworth are
anxious to have at the ceremony. Tho
list of Invited guests, it is expected, will
reach 500, and it Ls believed that even
with this large number invited thore will
be many "soreheads" who will say -moan
things about the President for overlook
"Invite the whole nation, and then you
can't slight any one," was the advice
a distinguished diplomat gave the Presi
dent, but as that was Impossible it wa
Huggested that only the Immediate family
of the bride and bridegroom be asked.
Reasons developed why that would not be
a good plan, and the result ls that the
President, Mrs. Roosevelt, Alice Roose
velt, Representative Longworth and sev
eral members of his family are holding
long conferences trying to detcrmine,wlio
is to be as-ked.
Wise in Having No Bridesmaids.
AVashington society is on the tiptoe of
anxiety In regard to tin? Roowsvelt invita
tions. There had boon much speculation
about Miss Roosevelt". bridesmaids, but
she settled tho question by announcing
she would not have any. Miss Roosevelt
showed her wisdom in this action, for
she has become so popular that no matter
bow many bridesmaids she would have
had, other young women would have felt
offended at not being asked.
Miss Roosevelt's girl friends, howex'or.
will not be forgotten. They will bo asked
to breakfast and will be grouped In a
conspicuous place on the right of the
bridal party. Some who will be asked
to the East Room are: Miss Mathlldc
Townsend, daughter of Richard Town
send; Miss Jean Reld, daughter of the
American Ambassador to London: Miss
Irene Catlln of St. Louis. Miss Frances
GrLscom of Philadelphia, the Misses An
derson and Miss Taft of Cincinnati, Misp
Kathorine Eddy of Chicago, Miss Pauline
Morton .of New York, the Misses Board,
man. the Misses Warder. Miss Annie Mc
Cawley of this city and Miss Lormg of
New York. To this group of girls must
be added Miss Christine Roosevelt, daugh
ter of Emlcn Roosevelt; Miss Loraine
Roosevelt, daughter of Mrs. J. West
Roosevelt, and Miss Corinne Robinson,
daughter of Douglas Robinson.
Longworth's best man undoubtedly will
be his brother-in-law. Buckner Walllng
ford, of Cincinnati. The ushers are likely
to Include young Theodore Roosevelt, Vis
count de Chambrun, whose brother mar
ried Longworth's sister; Representative
Robert Adams of Philadelphia, who has
been Longworth's chum since he came to
Congress: Representative Gillette of Mas
sachusetts, another close friend, and .Ben
son Foraker, son of the Ohio Senator.
Guests in the East Room.
Tentative plans for the ceremony in
clude the placing of the guests in the
East Room and a procession from the
upper corridor down the western stair
case and through the wing and corridor
Into the historic chamber identified with
events in the lives of the Chief Executives
of the American nation for more than
a century- Miss Roosevelt will enter on
her father's arm, and will be followed
by the members of the family, her ven
erable grandmother. Mrs. George C. Lee,
and the numerous connections of her
mother in Boston. Kermit Roosevelt will
escort his mother; Miss Ethel will walk
with Archibald and Quentin will be con
parted from the pallerles. The rule
was adopted by a vote of 1ST to 157.
Following is the rule:

shared by the mincowncrs, lumbermen
and cattlemen. The llrst three inter
ests opposed it because of a possible

KurocnUs declaring there was nothing
