The woods at Lawton are covered
by water nnd a current 200 foet wide

and pay them $2500 besldos? Keep
your oyo on this frauch'lso business
and do some figuring and thinking.
In twenty years tho town would pay
out for water fC0''00 and yet have
nothing. Isn't it better to pay this

AS TO STATEHOOD.

which means Delegates Flynn Hod-
oy nnd Mark Smith bnvo boon can
vassing tho prospects of the house
bill pnsslug tho sonnte nnd they hnve
been assisted by ninny mombcrs who
re favoring tho pnssngo of the bill.
It line been lonmod that there Is a
disposition In the sunnto to tnko the
bill nt this session. There are many
senators who favor tho admission of
tho territories. All tho Domocrnts and
a considerable number of llopubllcnns
re Included In tho number but the
mere considerntlon of the bill Involves
an Interminable dobnto which would
serve to prolong tho session to nn un
seemly length nnd now that Washing
ton's steaming summer Is on there Is
an earnest nnd unanimous deslro on
tho part ot tho lnwmnkors to get
Tim unhappy nnd unfortunnto fea
ture of the situation Is that tho post
ponement of tho hill until tho short
session will Inevitably menn Its de-
fent. It would not bo difficult for Ok-
lahoma to come in nlone but there
are formidable objections to "Jej
Moxlco and ArUonn. Should tho son-
ato nniond tho hill ho ns to admit Ok
lahoma and froeso out tho other two
territories the houso would probably
refuse to accept tho nmendment.
The omnibus statehood bill looks
like a dead one until tho fifty-eighth
congress comes Into life.
