Washington March (. Consldcr-
tiblo Interest attaches- to tho roturn of
Senator Quay from tho South where
ho had boon recuperating for a month
or moro from a threatened attack of
Illness. It has been whispered for
several days punt that the presence of
the Pennsylvania senator waH urgent-
ly needed to put now life Into the
statehood situation. When Senator
Quay left here It wn with the under-
standing that the sonato leadrs would
present no opposition to the admission
ot the four territories as four states'.
According to the heat Infornint.tr
the agreement was hatted upon a re
lprncnl program Quay agreeing to re-
port to no dlllatory legislation. On this
understanding It Is generally liellov-
ed the Pennsylvania!! betook himself
k- Palm Heaeh to rest and recover
Slneu that time rumors hnvo been
plenty that the senate was not Inter-
filed particularly In statehood logls-
latlcn. Quay It wan reported was
still in shattered health and probably
would not be able to come back in
time to accomplish any material good.
This latest reports well authenticated.
was that the house would pass the
bill but the senate would not act at
this .session and statohio.l Ioglsla
t!on would bo postponed nominally on
the ground that the Indian Territory
would by the time the statehood bill
was reached lit the short session tie
hotter equipped for statehood than at
p resen t.
It is now said that Quay has re
turned for the express purpose of
looking into the truth of rumors that
havo reached him that there has been
a secret uiiilorKtuuding between the
fcounto and limine that the house lead
cm are to shut off all efforts to bring
up the Htatehcod bills and thus re
Ileve the senate of the responsibility
.of dealing with the question at all.
There Is thought to be good grounds
for this belief. Kor some time pa.'
tho leaders at both ends of the capl-
tol havo treated the whole question ns
one of remote Interest. According to
btntements made statehood was to
bo taken up when there was a clear
tield for It. and the. opposition to it
had dwindled away w that tho pass-
age of the bill would consume no
tlmo and Interfere with the passage
of no other necessary and important
This Implied a condition substan-
tially of unanimity which Is a day-
dream. The return of Senator Quay
probably will mako a material differ-
ence in Hie plans of both sides for
it Is reasonably certain t hat unless ho
