State Capital Bureau, CIO Fourteenth S.
WASHINGTON, D. C.. Feb. *4.--
Representative Taylor, 01 Ohio, chair-
man 01 elections committee No. 1.. anc*
who is regarded as one of the ablest
lawyers in the house, raised a question
at the caucus oi the republican r^p.e-
sentatives the other night which is at-
tracting general attention among iiiujv.
interested in tne question 01 disfran-
chisement in the south and the repre-
sentation in congress oi the soutnern
Mr. Taylor called the attention ot
the aasci u.y 10 me lederal statute of
June 15, ibo8, fixing tlie terms upon
which the late revolted states should be
admitted to representation in con-
gress. That act provided that the states
of North Carol.11a, South Carolina,
Louisiana, Georgia, Florida and Ala-
bama should be admitted to represen-
tation when the legislature of each
state had ratified the iounecnth amend-
ment to the constitution ol the ^liied
States, and "upon the folowing funda-
mental conditions: that the constitu-
tion of neither oi said states shall ev-
er be so amended or changed as to de-
prive any citir.cn or class of citizens o*'
the United States of the right to vote
by the constitution thereof herein rec-
ognized. except as a punishment for
such crimes as are now felonies at
common law. whereof they shall have
been duly convicted under the laws
equally applicable to all the inhabitants
o! said state."
That statute is still in existence, and
i-s viewed as applicable. Its constitu-
tionality has never been passed upon.
Mr. Taylor, while doubtful of the right
of congress to impose such a condition,
thought its bearing upon the questions
now under discussion should be con-
"There are really two questions be-
fore us." said Mr. Taylor, in conver-
sation with your correspondent today.
"First, whether the fourteenth
amendment i- capable of enforcement
against an adroitly framed amendment
of a state constitution which seeks to
or in effect does, abrogate that consti-
"Second, as to the effect oi" the fore-
going act of congress defining the
terms oi the reestablishmcnt of the
broken relations between the south-
ern states and the union; whether con-
gress in so doing was exercising a con-
stitutional right when it pass, d the act.
"If that was a valid restriction the
answer to the second q;u non simple
enough. The act would be self op< t -
tive and the state would be compelled
as the price of their admission in con-
gress to conform their constitutions to
the requirements of the act.
"At any rate, these two questions
should be carefully considered by a
competent committee and tlie conclu-
sion reported to the house. It is fotind
that the fourteenth amendment 1.• •:
urnof against practical violation by
state constitutional legislation and that
the reconstruction aci of 1868 i-> inva 1 1
the country should know it and would
gi\e the republican party credit for the
effort it had made to find out what its
"I am in favor of undertaking an in-
vestigation "f that kind. The two ques-
tions iii''. in my opinion open to con-
struction, and should be eonstrrcd bv
lawyers for the benefit of the country."
The successful tactics of opposition
adopted by Representitives Otnnon,
Payne and Dalzell, with the approba-
tion it is thought, of Speaker Hender-
son have discouraged the members of
the house who have been moving for
an investigation and official agitation
of the subject of southern disfranchise-
ment. It i- considered very fl . • 1 t 1 • •
whether anything < an be nccomnlishcd
at this session. The adjournment of
the recent caucus for another *eek
will result, it is thought, in strengthen
ng the ranks of tlie opp'men's of the
plans suggested by Repre ent
Crumpacker. Moody, Dick. Ilmstcad,
Tavlor and others.
The opposition are bising their ar-
guments solely ttnon political grounds
—-fears for the effect upon the coming
congressional election- The possible
alienation of northern democratic
votes which have gone to the republi
cans in the past two elections on na
tional issue is the bogey tnan that af-

Congressman Flynn and President A. '
C. Scott Before Sub-committee on
Public Lands, Advocate For
State Capital Bureau 610 Fourteenth St
\\ ASlllMiTON. D. C. Feb. 14.—
Delegate Flynn and President Scott of
the Stillwater Agricultural college th •
other day appeared before the sub
committee, 01 the committee on public
lands, in advocacy of Delegate Flyun's
bill giving 040,000 acres of public lands
oi the territory to the school. Und.-r
existing laws Oklahoma, when admitt-
ed as a state, would be entitled to ,?o.-
000 acres of public land, for the b ncfit
of her agricultural colleges, lor each
congressman and sena.or irom the new-
state. At present the territory wo.dd
be entitled to three members of con-
gress and two sena.ors, thus giving .u r,
under existing law, 150,000 acres for
the benefit of her agricultural college.
At present there arc 4.000,000 acres
of public domain in Oklahoma which
has not yet been taken by homestead-
ers. This land, however, is being rap-
idly settled upon and with the varioas
propositions now pending before con-
gress for the disposition of this land,
it is doubtful whether there would bu
any of it left in the event Oklahoma
docs not secure admission as a state
for three or four years yet.
The proposition to give to the school
640.000 acrcs has for its object the eq 1-
ization in value of the lands heretofore
ceded to agricultural colleges in the
states. The available land in Oklahoma
now which can be given to the college
is of little value, much of it having
been rejected by even homestead ap-
plicants. The lands taken by the var-
ious western states for the benefit of
the'r agricultural colleges, at the timo
of their admission were worth from $5
to $10 per acre. By taking 640,000
acres, instead of 150.000, it is believed
; ti:"it the difference in value can be
; From the present indications it is
exceedingly doubtful whether the bill
will be favorably reported by the house

MUSKOGEE, 1. T.. F.-lx 14.-The
I latest rumor from Clarksville, is to the
effect that a man had been found badly
I wounded ten miles from that city, and
the supposition is that he is one of the
bank robbers who was a party to the

Tlie wounded man i> being closely

due to the fact that the shipments to
the Hawaiian islands and Porto Rico
were in 1901 no longer classed as ex-

reason the export figures on their face
show a slight reduction, while in fact it

Is an ordeal which all
women approach with
indescribable fear, for
nothing compares with
le pain and horror of
child-birth. The thought
of tho suffering and danger in store for her, robs the expectant mother
of all pleasant ant i ipations of the coming event, and casts over her a
fliadow of gloom which < annot he shaken off. Thousands of women
have fotind that tho use of Mother's f-riend during pregnancy robs
confinement of a'l pain and danger, and insures safety to life of mother
and child. This s icntific liniment is a god-send to all women at the
time of their most critical trial. Not only does Mother's Friend
carry women safely through the perils of child-birth, but its use
gently prepares the sv 'em for the coming event, prevents "morning
sickness," and other dis-
comforts of this period.
