Special to The Daily Leader.
Washington Dec. 10. The difference
In tho republican ranks over the Ham-
ilton statehood bill Das crystallized it-
self Into this situation: An effort to
hold a caucus and bind every represen-
tative o' the party to a program for ex-
peditious pnsae.se of the bill maitlng two
states out of tho four territories con-
cerned failed Mit In stead a confer-
ence was hetd and the representatives
voted unanimously In favor of statehood
tor Oklahoma and Indian Territory
Jointly nnd decided by a vote cf 110
to C6 In favor of statehood for Arizona
and New Mexico. The leadens of the
republican party say that the represen-
tatives by their participation and vote
are as tlghUy bound oh If In caucus.
Tho republicans Who oppose tho Art-zono-NoW
Mexico proposition say that
they will not be bound but will voto
their convictions on the floor. They suy
thoy will net put anything In tho way
of th0 Oklahomn featuro of tho Hamil-
ton hilt but Hint with tho domocrats
thoy will have sufficient strom h to
strlko tho Arizona and New toxtco
portion out of tho bill and thoy leok to
Senator Korakor to muster onough
Opposition In the sonoto to accomplish
the same end. In the meanwhile ho
republican leaders including Speakor
Cannon are proceeding on tho basis
that tho recent conference Is binding
upon cvory participant nnd Bay t It
thoy will put the- Hamilton bill through
as it comes from tho committee bn
territories after tho fight over prohi-
bition Is finished. For strategic reasons
tho committee has decided not to rush
tlm hill nrd the Indication Jit this
tlmo nro that the bill will probably not
bo reported before the holidays.
Tho succession of events In thla fight
over statehood have been of a decidedly
contradictory and kaleidoscopic nature
however with this strong prcdomlnut-
lng feature: a wondeTful unanimity In
favor of admitting Oklahoma nnd In-
dian Territory. What future complica-
tions will nrlEe If any. no man can tell
but tho prospects are that there re-
mains but one thing to decide nnd that

Yes sir; Judge Wurren of El Ilono.
Did- you notify him. nt that time
what you would take tho contract fort
A. Yes Blr.
Q. How mueliT
A. Tho samo as boforo two hun-
dred dollars per year per capita.
Q. Any leesT
A. No sir.
Q. At "that time or any time after-wa.-ds
the next summer did you know
Who the owners' of the stock were In
A. No air.
O. From whom
A. WJiat I heard nnd the papers was j sonal friendship with him.
I oatne by It.
A. After tho company ws organised
and secured their contract Cottlagham
who was one of tho organizer ami a
pnrtlcutar frtetn of mine asked me one
day If I wanted to make an Investment.
I said I rfkln't know and naked what.
He said he would let me have some of
his stock if I wanted it: that he thought
there woual he a fair profit In It and I
said I would like to have it and I got
some of It.
Q. How muoliT
Five hundred dollars' worUi.
Havt you got It yet?
WTiat did you do with It?
Sold It to Mr Cottlngham: that
Is. I suppose he Held II. I told him Uwit
I did not oare to own it any longer un-
der these clrcumstancen. Tliat woh
shortly before the story camo out that
Governor Jenkins was connected with
tho sanitarium. I hoard It and I went
to him to find out what truth there was
In it and feeling that if It was true that
he had been oonncoted In nny way with
It that I did not oare to own stock In
It. I went to him and ho told mo person-
ally In subBtanoe I think about what
ho said to tho department In his letter-
that Is that ho had placed tho stock
or rather let tho contract to men ho re-
garded as his friends for tho reason
that ho fell that ho was respontlble li u
largo moasure for tho contract or would
bo held repponslblo in that way and
preferred to have mon In the company
that would be bound to him In that way
or at least by some tie of friendship so
that ho could more easily seo that tho
contract was fulfilled than ho could with
strangers. I naked him if he had stock
in tho corporation nnd ho said he did
not. I said that I had understood that
ho did. Ho said that was probably due
to theso clrcurmtances. "that I wnntcd
a friend of mine Mr. C. S. Jobes from
Kansas to have a portion of tho stock
and at my request some stock was placed
In Mr. MeNeal's bank to bo kept there
until Jobes could bo notified or found
It convenient to take it up." And I felt
that I did not caro to own my stock
nny longer because I felt that his con-
nection with It would probably be mis-
construed whether It woh right or
wrong or rather would bo construed In
nn ltnnrODer manner so I sold mv stock
nnd told Cottlngham that I did not care
to own It nny longer.
Q. Yau know nt that time who tho
Q. Do you know now?
A. I know only a few of them that
is thoy aro said to bo. I did not know
who tho stockholders were. I know that
Cottlngham wall bocause ho had organ-
ized tho company or had helped to or-
ganize it; he wn. very active in it.
Q. You have nd knowledge at -11 no
to who Uio stock was Issued to?
A. I do not; I know nothing of those
details at all.
Q. Cottlngham took your stock from
A. Yes sir. As to whether he took It
from mo. ho took It and ho disposed of
It In some way; whether he sold It yos
he sold It to some one; ho told mo that
I did not ask to whom.
Q. Whs that five hundred dollars Is-
sued to ou In the first placo by tho cor-
A. Yes sir.
Q. When you transferred It did you
A. Yes sir.
Q. In blank JuSt signed your name
to It or did you sign It over to some
particular person? r
A. I could not state whothor I did or
not. I know that I endorsed It I do
not know whether In blank or not blank.
Mr. Cottlngham said If I did not caro
to hold It ho would Just take it as a
matter of courtesy to mo.
Q. I suppose yau thought you might
want to make some remarks yourself In
'II. I Just thought this way about
hat I Intd gotten the stock from
Cottlngham simply a a matter of per-

A. On Sunday. (I do not remember
the date "We were In tho room at the
hotel. X was telllai- hits about having
ways been a very good friend of mine
and he thought there was a good profit
In it and he said that the company was
organised and lr. Winkler chosen as
president and superintendent and that
fact alone caused me to Itave a great
deal of confidence In the eompeny. I
had known him In two sessions of the
tegbtlrtture and had regarded him as a
very- honorable man and a man of the
highest Integrity and think so still and
I had no reason to doubt but that the
organisation was properly organized.
Q. How long did you keep that stock?
A I caq not state bow hut the eonu
petny had ben ormulzed and the con-
tract let oh. I ino probably a couple
of weeks und I aokj out very shortly

it that while 1 appreciated his reasons
for It for placing Jt among bis friends.

ihat he luked at it la that way then
