Picture Painted Dlaek.
Portsmouth . N. II. Aug. 27. With
all the world hoping for pence Russia
and Japan on the other side of the
world are preparing for a renewal of
hostilities aud their envoys are to-
night saying thnt tho peace conference
practically reached Its end In failure
at today's historic session.
"We have no new proposition.." said
.Mr. Takahlrn the Japanese minister
at Washington. "I do not see thnt any-
thing further can bo done or said. Our
adjournment was had until Monday
but for no Important purpose."
"It is all over' said M. Wltte. the
chief envoy of Umporor NIcholuB.
"Russia will not do JSf.s thing that
Japan demands and Japan would rath-
er continue the war than forego the
humiliation of Russia for an Indem-
nity." The question now Is "Is it nil a gi-
gantic 'bluff prior to' yielding on both
sides nnd reaching nn agreement?"
Russia today consented to cede to
Japan half of Sakhalin If she could get
It without paying for It. This Is some-
thing of a concession if there Is to
be another step iownrd coining togeth-
er It must come from Japan. Then It
will be Russia's turn to step forward.
Hut Japan like Russia. Is playing the
game In the strongest possible way
and she will not take the noxt step.
If the statements of the envoys are
to be taken nt their face nnd not their
diplomatic value there Is but a va-
grant chance for pence. Iiotli sides of
the picture are painted In the black-
est of coloring.

And Arc Advocating Another Joint
Statehood Convention to be Held
In Indian Territory In Contra
distinction to Muskogee.
A grrrup of men In Ardnioro wero
discussing the statehood convention at
.Muskogee. It was apparent that a
number or them were somewhat
alarmed over the Inroads that tho
double statehood element aro making.
It was suggested that a meeting bo
hold In every recording district or the
Indian Territory nnd that resolutions
be passed endorsing Joint statehood;
that those resolutions bo published In
tho papers and sent to Washington
and especially to tho lending stntehood
advocates In congress. Tho purpose
or these resolutions Is to counteract
tho effect of tho Muskogee convention.
It wns declared that a fictitious senti-
ment was being developed through the
convention nnd that this would pos-
sibly Injure the cause of statehood.
As one man recently expressed It the
Muskogee convention has left tho Im-
pression that there Is discord among
the people when ns a matter of fact
85 per cent are for Joint stntohood.
Though ndmlttlng that tho single
statehood clement is better organized
to enrry on the fight leaders declaro
that tho success or statehood this win-
ter will depend largely upon tho abil-
ity of the workers to Impress congress
Into tho belief that ono state for the
two territories Is what Is really want-
ed and tho stntehood campaign should
bo opened early.
Tho Ardniore Commercial club fa-
vors the removal of the restrictions
on the alienated lands of tho nntlon
and many of the directors nro strong
advocates of single statehood. It Is be-
lieved that If the commercial clubs of
the territory would start tho fight for
self-government much could be accom-
plished. At any rato It Is now up to
tho Joint statehood men to start the
Ono of the leading Indians of this
section Chns. I). Carter who was for-
merly a double statehood man. said
that tho more ho studied the situation
tho more ho became convinced that
the best thing for the Indians was un-
ion with Oklahoma. Ho thinks that
many Indians will lino up for Joint
stntehood If the proper effort Is made.
Mr. Carter doos not admlro tho poli-
ticians who nro working for soparato
statehood as he believes that their
purpose Is a selfish one. Eighty per
cent of tho lending peoplo of tho ter-
ritory aro for ono state for the two
territories ho declared.
Any one who looks Into tho mutter.
studios Uio quostlon of taxation and
tho points In favor of Joint stntohood
will prefer no other kind said Mr.
Carter. Sontlmont. ho thinks should
cut no figure In tho fight. Tho ques-
tion should be looked In to by every-
one. It Is probable that .some action will
be taken soon and it Is hoped that the
Joint statchooders will start tho ball
PanlsA'alley I. T Ajig. 2C It was
learned hero today on.' good authority
that a movement has been started for
calling a singlo statehood convention
to meet nt this place Ardmoro or
South McAlostor In the near future.
The object of this convention will be
to show the world at largo that a very
largo majority of tho residents of In-
dian Territory nro In favor of joint
statehood with Oklahoma and to be lu
contradistinction to tho Muskogeo con-
ventlon now In session. Tho move-
ment Is headed by leaders In both tho
Democratic nnd Republican parties In
nearly nil of tho leading towns In tho
Territory nnd will likely call together
the largest niimbor of peoplo ovor bo-
fnro assembled In tho Territory.

Judge Charles W. Raymond filed a

ing a habeas corpus proceeding before
Judge Raymond. Rattier lives In Fort

Price Mercantile. Co. of Kansas City.
Ills business was to tako orders for
curtains rugs nnd household furnish-
ings. Ho did not curry tho goods with
him or deliver thorn. Ho simply took
orders. Tho court hold that tho city

ed nnd lined wns broader thnn tho
statute under which It wns forced nnd
that. Us enforcement would bo un In-
terference with Interstate commerce
ns bused on the rights of tho consti-
tution. The Tulsa ordinance Is copied
nftir the Muskogee ordlnnnce and
nearly every town In the Territory
has similar ordinances. This court
decision will affect nil of them alike.
In closing his decision the court says:
"To hold that the city of Tulsa has
the power to force tho petitioner to
tnko out a license lu order to canvass
the elly for orders for goods from Ills
principals residing nnd luivlng tholr
plneo-of business beyond tho limits of

would seem would be In violation or
constitutional provisions cltbd would
be iu contravention of tho rights or
free commerce between tho states nnd
In tho teeth of die repeated decisions
of the highest courts of tho land. Tho
opinion or Uio court Is that tho portion
or said ordinance requiring petitioner
