Henshaw Admits Gerrymander.
Oklahoma City, Okla., July 5.—"1
for one shall insist upon the elimina-
tion of the gerrymander when the
constitutional convention reconvenes,"
said Delegate George Henshaw of Ma-
dill "I believe the democrats should
take no chances on statehood, and if
this alleged gerrymander Is likely to
cause the loss of statehood, we should
cut it out. I have been consistently
opposed to it right along^ When it
was first presented to the convention
by the apportionment committee of the
convention I favored it. but after we
had adjourned and gone home I made
an Investigation and soon satisfied
myself that the convention had gone
a little too far."
As the result of the conference of
leading democrats in Oklahoma City
it now seems almost certain that the
gerrymander of the legislative dis-
tricts will be eliminated from the con
stitution when the convention recon-
venes next week.
What efTect such a plan would have
is not altogether clear, although It
would seem that It would line up the
, disgruntled elements in the democrat-
ic party for Haskell for governor.
