WHAT MR. McGUiRE SAID OF
DISPATCH CIS PRIVATE SECRETARY SENT
Announced That He Would Never
Give Up Opposition to Single State-
hood— Now McGuire Says He Hcs
Always Been For One State
(By Myron Boyle.)
From the Btate Capital Washington Bureau.
Washington, Jan. :>tl.—Representative Lilly,
of Connecticut, a member of tho committee on
territories, will cutertain tho republican mem-
bers of the committee on territories and Okla-
homa republicans in Washington at dinner at
liia home tomorrow night. Delegate McGuire
luia insisted that tho republican raembeis
should discuss the statehood situation with
tho Oklahornans and his efforts for u ctnfer-
i nee resulted in thti forthcoming dinner.
Oklahornans who will attend are: Delegate
McUuire, Cash Cade, Hon. I). T. Flynn, J. A
Havens, A. H. tieissler, Diclc Morgan, Geo.
Delegate McUuire and other Oklahornans
will discuss the statehood situation today.
The light for statehood continues along the
line of the McUuire bill, and UNDER NO C1H

The above dispatch appeared in t!w
State Capita] on January 27, 1904. It
bears the signature, as will be seen,
of Myron Boyle, who is Mr. Mc-
Guire's private secretary, and was
sent at the dictation of Mr. McGuire

fighting a single statehood bill to the

It shows that Mr. McGuire fought
the only kind of a statehood bill
which it was possible to pass, until
his own party threw his double state-
hood bill into the waste basket and
deliberately ran over him and his

says he has always been for singe
statehood he falsifies his public rec-
It shows that Mr. McGulre's sole
object in the statehood matter was
to force through a separate statehood
"No compromise," said Mr. Mc-
Guire, through his private secretary,
"whereby I will agree to joining In-
dian Territory and Oklahoma in one
This position, in the light of the
attitude of congress in the matter,
was equivalent to uMng his office in
an attempt to defeat statehood.
When McGuire was mnning for
congress two years ago the omnibus
statehood bill had passed the house
and was pending in the senate. He
made his campaign on the represen-
tation that his election would mean
the passage of the ominbus bill
through tihe senate and/ its enact-
ment Into law, thereby giving Okla-
homa stitahood. What was the re-
sult of the people allowing them-
selves to be flim-flammed? The
omnibus bill was killed in the sena.e
before McGuire ever took his seat. I
and when he attempted to get a b H j
before congress providing for separ- j
ate statehood it was killed in the
committee and the Hamilton bill sub j
stltuted. Now McGuire is trailing
along after the Hamilton bill, trying |
to run on the strength of it.
[ THE SCHOOL LAND LESSEES
Thsir Future Interests Lie With the
There la much talk about the
school land lessee vote in Oklahoma,
and the manner in which it is like-
ly to be cast.
The truth about the matter Ts that
the school land lessee, when he
thinks over the Eituaiton, Is bound
to come to the conclusion that his
own cause is the- one which must
suffer most from being made the
subject of partisan pulling and haul
What the lessee greatly needs is
statehood. With it will come a set-
tlement of all the questions which
touch his welfare and Ihese questions
must be se'.tled by the democratic
party, which will control the new
state. The lessee who sees into the
future and is disposed to exercise
his wisdom will not offend the party
upon which he must depend for set-
tlement of his vital Interests. More-
over, he will assist in every way
possible to sdjure statehood along
such lines as will place him in sym-
pathy with the majority when state-
hood comes. This is the part of
wisdom. It is the course of pru-
In the campaign this year the post-
ton of the democratic party, ex-
pressed in its terrl.oriai platform, Is
favorable to the adjudication of the
scho 1 land question by papular vote.
Tne lessee has everything to gain
by this process. His neighbors will
assist him in deciding the matter,
and he should be far more willing to
leave it with them than with the un-
certainties of politics and politicians.
The position is thoroughly demo-
cratc. It is in line with the prin-
ciple of majority rule, which we all
profess to believe, and upon which
principle the foundation of our gov-
There are 8,000 lessees In Oklaho-
ma. There are eight of these quar-
ter sections in each congressional
township, and in a large portion of
the territory there are sixteen. If
the cause of these eight or sixteen
men is worthy, they shruld have no
trouble in securing a majority of
the votes In their own township,
among neighbors and friends, and
with such a nucleus to work from.
It is to the interest of the lessee to
see that the democratic position in
this matter is indorsed, for it points
out the most satisfactory and fair
manner so lar as his interests are
Then when statehood comes and
the administration of affairs passes
to ule hands of the deaiocratic party
the lessee will have n ) cause for re
gret, and will have the further satis-
faction of knowing that his interests
will receive every merited protec-

the present. By assisting the demo-

Mr. McGuire Is telling all over the
territory that Senator Bailey is the
one man who is in the way of state-
hood, and that a single statehood bill
will pass the senate if Bailey does
not fight it to death. Taking Mr.
McGuire at his word, the people of
Oklahoma would be very foolish to
elect him. Who would have more
influence with Senator Bailey: Mc-
Guire or Mathews? Think a minute.
Two years ago Mr. McGuire stated

Mr McGuire promised the people
of Comanche county that he would
get a bill through congress opening
up the pasture reserve. He never
hail any intention of working to that
end, because he believes the reserve,
when opened, will he settled by Tex-
ans. And h ha. balked every effort.
McGuire, in his speech at Okla-
homa City September 20. asserted
that he was in favor of single state-
hood two years ago. The voters in
weatern Oklahoma will be greatly in-
terested to learn that their hearing
was much impaiicd in the last cam-
paign. They understood Mr. Mc-
Guire to say that he was unalterably
in favor of statehood for Oklahoma
The national republican platform
is absolutely silent on the subject of
statehood. But inasmuch as it states
that "all pledges have been fulfilled,"
\ the inference is unquestionable that
i it does not contemplate the passage
• of the statehood bill at all.
