Wasuinotom, May 6th, 1902.
There are no hsppier men la the
national capital this week than dele
gates Dennis T. Flynn, Bernard 8.
Kodey and Marcus A. Smith, whose un
tiring efforts have accomplished what
promises to be a signal victory for the
omnibus territorial bill, which will be
called up in the house of representatives
tomorrow. Speaking of the campaign
which he believes will result in state
hood lor Oklahoma and Indian Territory
as one stab:, Mr. Flynn, "tbe future
senator for Oklahoma," as his friend
call him, said yesterday: "It bas been
a bard fight because of the numerous
misconceptiora in regard to my terri
tory which existed In the bouse. I have
labored early and late, in season and
out, and now I believe a large majority
of the members have some appreciation
of the giganlic strides which Oklahoma
has made. With a total indebtedness of
1400,000, she hss $300,000 in the treas
ury. She lias 2500 schoolhouses and tbe
largest educational fund of any state in
(he Union. She has a larger assessed
valustion than Wyoming. By s rule of
the bouse the last census must be taken
aa a basis for congressional representa
tion, and even on that basis we will have
two representatives, (einething no other
territory has hs.l at the time of Its ad
mission; and if the actual population
were tnken, we would have three " Iu
reply to a question, Mr. Flynn said that,
had the party leaders been keenly alive
to their opportunities, they might have
Admitted Oklahoma on strict party lines,
but they were not and he was obliged to
effect s coalition with the friends of New
Mexico and Ariiona in order to get the
bill befoie the bouse. Hecently he had
been urged to abandon the advocates ol
statehood for the other territories and
push his own separately, but be had re
fused to go back on his friends and they
would "sink or swim together." Mr.
Flynn is most hopeful ol fsvorable action
by the senate.
Mr. Kodey is enthusiastic as to tbe
prospects ol statehood for New Mexico.
"It has been a long fight," said he. "For
titty five years we have been pleading for
statehood. We have seen other terri
tories with not half our claims admitted
into the sisterhood of states, and tbey
have prospered, as we will. Every false
statement which has been made In re
gard to my territory, which has come to
my notice, I have corrected, and I have
written hundreds of letters to the press.
Think ol it I New Mexico furnished more
soldiers to the Union army than any
other state. Two-thirds of the presi
dent's regiment came from New Mexico.
All our generous revenues have gone
into the federal treasury, and without
such assurance has been given to Porto
Kico that an equal amount would be
expended within our borders. But vic
tory is now in sight, and a territory
which is equal in area to New York,
New Jersey and all of New England,
which built 80J miles of railroad last
year, will soon become one of the fair
est and most prosperous states In tbe
Mr. Smith, being a member of the mi
nority, bad, perhaps, less influence in
bringing about the success of tbe bill
than tbe other delegates, nevertheless
he has succeeded in marshalling tbe
solid democratic vote in its support, not
withstanding the fact that the passuge of
the omnibus bill will add four republican
and but two democratic votes to the sen
ate. "It is not a party question," said
Mr. Smith. "It is a case of simple jus
tice, and one to which both parties are
committed by their national platforms.
Ninety-three republican and all the dem
ocratic votes are pledged to support tbe
bill, and we believe success is insured."
All last week the democratic senators
spent in condemning the policy of the
administration in the Philippines, with
the exception of Friday, when Senator
I'ritchard of North Carolina expounded
the republican view. Today at 2 o'clock
Senator Ixlge will deliver tbe first
broadside, and fitnators Hpooner and
Iieveriilge are preparing speeches to be
delivered Ibis week. It is the hopo of
the republicans that a vote on the bill
can be secured next Monday, although
there are many who declare that the
leaders sre oversangiiine, Nothing par
ticularly new has been brought out since

my last letter, The senate adopted Sen
ator Culberson's resolution calling 00
the secretary of war for a statement of
tbe expense which the Philippines have
been to the United States since their ac
quisition, and it ia most likely that the
figures will prove a revslation to the tax
payers. Tbe investigation of the committee on
relations with Cuba has not developed
anything sensational in regard to the
possession by tbe sugar trust of Cuban
sugar. In fact, tbe president, the treas
urer and "raw sugar buyer" of the trust
have all been examined and baye stated,
under oath, that the trust held no Cuban
sugar. It would appear from their state
ments that reciprocity with Cuba would
afflict them little, one way or the other,
and they positively deay having lobbied
to procure Cuban reciprocity. The indi
cations are tbat the adoption of the Tel
ler resolution will strengthen the cause
of the administration in urging congress
to adopt a reciprocity law.
Tbe House of Representatives baa
been displaying unusual industry dur
ing tbe psst week. The omnibus public
building bill, the agricultural and tbe
District of Columbia appropriation bills
have been passed, and the bill providing
for diplomatic relations with Cuba will
be sent to the senate in a few days. But
two more appropriation bills remain, the
naval bill and tbe general deficiency bill.
The total sum of the general appropria
tion bills so far passed or reported
amounts to $658,851,208.
The past week ha witnessed the de
parture from the cabinet and from Wash
ington ol Secretary Long and bis sue

Clay Evans is to be appointed consul

have before slated, Mr. Eugene F. Ware

City of Medford Loses.
Judgo Uullingor bat declared that
tho city of Modford had- no pownr to
tax tho franchise of tho Kunaut Tiln
phonu & Telegraph Company. Tho
suit was brought by the lutlor to on
join tho city of Modford from remov
ing tho poles and wires of tho com
plainant from tho streets of thut city,
undur an ordinance imposing a IIi-oiiho
upon the company of 1100 per your,
and requiring an agrcemont not to
churgo customers in Medford more
than ll.fjo per month for Its wrvlu-s.
Tho question Involved was tho pow
er of the city under its churtor. Tho
court said that when thoolty gave the
company a franchise, It might have
chargod for tho franchise, but it did
not. The court hold that In tho chur
tT of tho city tho power of license as a
meuns of rcgiiluting all business, Im
plies a powor to rhargo a teo therefor
siimViont to defray tho expenses of
issuing tho lioDnso and to compensate
tho city for any eximnse Incurred In
maintaining such regulation. When
ever it is manifest that the foo for the
license is substantially In excess of
what It should bo, It will bo considered
a tux and tho order Imposing it void.
Tho provision of the ordinance in re
gurd to charging no more than $1.50
per month for Wlephono sorvleo wns
not Insisted upon by defendant. Jts
Invalidity was conceded, and It was
therefore not necessary to consider It.
Tho demurrer to the bill of ciinpiuint
An old farmer was in a merchant's
office and asked if he would buy
some fresh butter. Tlis merchant told
bim that be would Inquire if bis wile
needed any. Ho be stepped ut to the
telephone, called her up and talked a
lew seconds through the telenhone.
Then, timing to the country man, who
was standing with bis hsnds in bis
pockets, Ins eyes stretched, and bis
face very red, he told him that his wife
did not need any butter. The indn-
nant country man blurted out: "Look
here, mister, If you didn't want anv
butter, why didn't you say m1 I ain't
such a fool as to think that you'vs got
your wife shut up in that little box I"

We saw some parties from the Copper

there was a class of men calling them

hills digging little holes the site of hens'
nests and say there was nothing In the

and also go down on the quarts and
would uncover a good ledge. The deeper
down they go, the rirher and better be

Dated at Grants Tasa, Oregon, A
Col. W. Johnson,
This Item is for the flfteeo-year old
boy who thinks it is a smart thing to
act np 10 mean at school tbat be wears
out the life of bis teacher and destroy
tbe good work wblcb the school was
Intended to accomplish. This sort of
bsatben is found in country as well as
city schools. Tbey ara too big for a lit
tl. woman to thrash, and seem to bave
no moral sense which may be appealed
to. Now, boys, yon are tbe architects
of your own fortunes. Yon can Improve
the educational advantage given you,
and become useful and worthy citisens,
or yon can raise Cain, as you do in
school, grsduat from there into a brake
beam tramp, and die a dirty bom.
Yon can make your choice. The sure
way to get Into plenty ol trouble when
grown to manhood is lo msae lot of
trouble in the public schools. You
ought to havs got the meaunes well
licked out ol you, but the teacher can't
do it, your father won't and the school
board had rather fire yoo than lick yoo
Fun and plenty of it is tbe birthright of
the American boy, but your type of
meanness ia not fun ; it is the outcrop
ping of tbe heathen in yon, and yon
belong with the Moro or Tagals of tbe
Philippines rather than with tbe people
of civilised North America. Turn over
a nsw leaf.
Makes the bread
. more healthful.

msnaccrs to health of tbe pMstnt day.
