hope Is to ho disappointed and that
tho bill when It finally passes the
houso will again connect theso two
different nnd distinct propositions.
Even if tho houso makes thai mistake
Tain not entirely without hopo thnt
wo can soparato tho two propositions
In tho senate. If wo can succeed In
doing this Oklnhoma and Indian Tor-
