\S SUNDRY CIVIL RIDER
Discharge of Conferees From
Special to Daily Leader.
"Washington, D. C., April 25.—The
latest reports about the capltol today
concerning statehood (for the terri-
tories was that the bill would bo at-
tached to the sundry civil appropria-
tion bill as a rider. In this manner
the question would bo put squarely
up to the House as to whether there
would be any statehood legislation or
not at this session of Congress. The
information comes from a senator
whose name has been frequently
used In connection with the statehood
bill and who has taken an active part
in the discussions, as well as offered
amendments to it which were adopted
by tho Senate. Tho course would
probably be to discharge tho con-
ferees from further consideration of
the bill and get It before the Senate,
where It could be attach d as an
amendment to the sundry civil bill.
Tho latter is one of the most import-
ant of the appropriation bills, and
naturally the House would be placed
in a dilemma if it declined to pass it
>vith the statehood feature added by
tho Senate. This, apparently, is Ihe
situation tho senator would seek to
bring about if the House persists in
declining to yield to the Senate and
pass the statehood bill as It came
from tUe Senate, with Arizona and
New Mexico eliminated, or even with
tho Foraker amendment providing for
a vote on the question by the people
of those two territories.

Washington, D. C.. April 25.—
Through some strange notion a num-
ber of Indian Territory towns have
come to the conclusion that they can
g-1 into the statehood bill in confer-
ence as court towns. The bill already
provides for courts at Muskogee,
Vinita, Tulsa. McAlester, Chickasha
and Ardmore, and now eight more
towns are trying to break in, not be-
ca-'.-e i f a necessity for these addi-
tion :*1 courts, nor because they want
the courts very badly, but because of
the pre.-tige it would give them In the
fight for county seats. The following
are the towns that want the conferees
to take care of them, and the names
of the men representing them:
Wyandotte, backed by ex-Dclegato
Harvey; Medlll, backed by Sam Pow-
ers; Wilburton an l Chlkota, by Web-
ster Ballinger; Weleetka, by Dr. Linn;
Lakemore and Watumpka, by W. E.
Cranke, and Duncan, by Judge Bill
Gilbert. Misleading reports had been
sent out of Washington in order to in-
duce these towns to make this fight,
whereas It is a fact, and so recorded
at the time in these dispatches, that
the conferees took the advice of Par-
liamentarian Hinds and decided that
they had no power to incorporate In
their report the names of any towns
not already passed by either one of
the two houses. This decision was
reached several weeks ago, about the
same time that the conferees decided
to kill the Wrarren amendment.
