SENATOR BFVERIDGE, N A LET-
TER TO DELEGATE McGUIRE,
SAYS IT IS THE ONLY WAY
PREDICTS STATEHOOD AT THIS SESSION
Calls Separate State Plan "Tomfool-
ery"—A Scheme to Prevent State-
hood—Oklahoma Cannot be Admit-
ted Singly, Without Indian Territory
PAWNEE: Delegate Bird S. Mc-
Gulre has received a letter from Sena-
tor Albert J. Beveridge of Indiana, de-
claring that he need have no fear re-
garding the passage of a bill granting
statehood to Oklahoma and Indian
Territory at the coming session of
congress. Mr. Beveridge is chair-
man of the senate committee on terri-
tories, and is one of the original joint
statehood advocates. The letter to
Mr. McGuire follows:
"On my return from my vacation
Shipp (Mr. Beveridge's secretary, who
visited Oklahoma at the time) told
me all about your magnificent state-
hood convention, and had many pleas-
ant things to say about you.
"You need have no fear. Oklahoma
and Indian Territory combined into
one state will be admitted as a single
American commonwealth at the com-
ing session of congress.
"By the way, what does all that
"tomfoolery" mean over in the Indian
Territory? Write me about it. It
looks to me like a scheme to prevent
statehood of any kind.
"They know, just as well as I do,
that no bill making Indian Territory
a state by itself can pass. If a bill
making Oklahoma a state by itself
cannot pass, and it cannot, certainly
a bill making Indian Territory a
state by itself cannot pass. Let me
know all about it.''

In a letter to S. T. Bledsoe of Mus-
kogee on the same subject Senator
Beveridge says, in part:
"I do not asume to speak for any-
body but myself. And thus speaking,
it is my emphatic opinion that the
bill making Oklahoma and Indian
Territory one state under the name
of Oklahoma will pass both the house
and the senate, and become a law
very early in the next session. Cer-
tainly no bill making Indian Territory
separate state has the slightest chance
of passage. Most assuredly it ought
not to have. This question has been
thoroughly debated by the people of
the two territories and overwhelming-
ly decided in favor of the only wise
and rational course—the reunion of
the two territories under the original
boundaries and their admission when
thus reunited as one splendid Ameri-
"At the last session of congress the
house and the senate were for the
proposition to unite Indian Territory
and Oklahoma and admit them as a
single state. I think that even a
larger majority will be in favor of the
same thing at the coming session.
"Men in public life are not surprised
at schemes such as you describe the
separate statehood plan in Indian
Territory to ho. Answering ^our
question as to my opinion as to what
effect such manipulation will have on
the next congress, I answer that I
think it will have no effect at all.
Certainly it would not have the slight-
est effect upon myself, and I imagine
other senators and representatives
will feel the same way about it.
"In conclusion I can say that it
is my firm conviction that Oklahoma
will be admitted at the coming session
of congress, consisting of the new
territories of Oklahoma and Indian
Territory, and that no bill which pro-
poses the admission of either terri-
tory as a separate state can oossibly

A nervous, irritable mother, often on
the verge of hysterics, is unfit to care
for children; it ruins a child's disposi-
tion and reacts upon herself. The
trouble between children and their
mothers too often is due to the fact
that the mother has some female weak-
ness, and she is entirely unfit to bear
the strain upon her nerves that govern-
ing children involves; it is impossible
for her to do anything calmly.
The ills of women act like a firebrand
upon the nerves, consequently nine-
tenths of the nervous prostration, ner-
vous despondency, "the blues," sleep-
lessness, and nervous irritability of
women arise from some derangement
of the female organism.
Do you experience fits of depression
with restlessness, alternating with
extreme irritability? Are your spirits
easily affected, so that one minute you
laugh, and the next minute you feel
like crying ?
Do you feel something like a ball ris-
ing in your throat and threatening to
choke you ; all the senses perverted,
morbidly sensitive to light and sound ;
pain in the ovaries, and especially
between the shoulders; bearing down
pains; nervous dyspepsia, and almost
continually cross and snappy?
If so, your nerves are in a shattered
condition, and you are threatened with
