A strange fight Is going" on over
statehood. Oklahoma and the Indian
Territory are in no wise a part of this
fight. No one objects to the admission
of Uie twin territories. All ndmlt they
nre for the admission of tho stnto of
Oklahoma but our admission Is block-
ed as completely as though' tho fight
were concerning conditions within tho
twin territories. Is It not strango that
a measure which vitally affects near-
ly a million nnd n half of people
should be killed or advanced through
Interests a thousand miles romoved
from the territory. Is there nny ex-
cuse for tying up the two terrltorloe
bwnuse of Arizona and Now Moxlco?
If the men who stand opposed to more
than two states out of the four terri-
tories fear thnt a pnrty may como Into
power which would make two states
out of Arliona and Now Moxlco must
know that to refuse to ndmlt Okla-
homa and Indian Territory bocntiBe of
the mountnln territories may mnko
It possible for thn admission of four
stntos Instead of two or at most three.
If the Republicans fear thnt tho Dom-
ocnits would admit Arizona nnd Now
Mexico ns kopnrnto stntos If they
could get control they must know that
there Is a likelihood of the Democrats
admitting Oklahoma nnd Indian Ter-
ritory ns two states provided thoir ad-
mission Is postponed. This bolng truo
It does not stand to ronson thnt Speak-
er Cannon nnd associates would fall
to ndmlt Oklahoma and Indian Terri-
tory as one stnto and thus mnkc suro
thnt two stntos would never bo mndo

would bco tho danger In dclnylng tho

No president hns ever been nblo to

Cleveland enmo nearer to It th'm

for tho repeal of tho Shormtm sliver

presidential victory cost tho victor
his leadership and his party Its har-
mony. Congressman Glllesplo thinks thnt
Prosidont Roosovolt will not go so
far In his contention for Interstate
rnllwny rate regulation but will bo
content to tuko the best measure his
party will p..rmlt. It ho yields on this
point ho will likely yield on othors
nnd tho sosslon may pass with only
nogntlvo and lnoffectlvo measures
along sovcral proposed linos.
In nny case It Is plain that tho spir-
it of rovolt Is at work In tho congress
nnd It Is far from being limited to
party Hues. In tho houso thoro Is so-
rlods objection to tho soonkor's or
majority's stntohood bill uniting Ar-
Izonn nnd New Moxlco s won ns

FORCE BEHIND REVOLT.
An observant correspondent of tho
Now York Sun In Washington reminds
us that "Insurrection" ngnlnst the
plans of party leadors In congress Is
no new thing but he rnlses the ques-
tion whether the present revolt among
Republican members Is not of larger
significance than thnt Indicated In
tho mere fact of objection to tho
statehood and Phlllpplno tnrlff bill.
One of the best Informed members
of tho houso of representatives is
quoted as saying "Tho houso Is a
volcano showing signs of a vigorous
eruption" nnd this condition Is in part
explained b tho presence In tho now
congress of n number of now mem-
bers who have gono to Washington
expecting to voto according to tho
dictates of their own consciences nnd
tho will of their constituents. Instead
they find that they arc expected to
obey tho mandates of the so-called
It Is admitted thnt In so large a po-
litical body as tho house of represcn-
tntlvcs some prearranged plan of leg-
islation Is necesBary; but In tho pres-
ent congress as In the previous ones
tho dictation of party leaders has
boon carried much too far.
Tho speaker has not tried to ascer-
tain tho concensus or opinion of bis
party In tho house on any given ques-
tion but has laid out a plan of his
own nnd Is islug tho party lash to
whip In the "bolters" nnd "Insurgents"
who do not promptly accept It.
Summoning members to tho Whito
Houso tho president makes no effort
to nscertaln the Instructions express
or Implied with which they wcro sent
to Wnshlngton. hut carefully explains
that himself and other party leaders
unnamed have after much delibera-
tion decided that so nnd so should
bo dono for the good of tho party.
It was by tho way through such
talk ns this that Roprosontatlvo Ro-
donberg of the Twenty-second Illinois
district wa3 weaned from tho stnto-
hood Insurgonts as ho explained dur-
ing his holiday visit to Kast St. Iuls.
Rut It mny bo noted thnt Mr. Rodon-
berg's district Is mentioned three
times In tho public buildings bill for
which the speaker now thinks monoy
may ho spared. Tho .Missouri Insur-
gents Jiowovor bold out ngalnst tho
president's 'entrontloB. They got no
post ofllcos nnd tlioj know what to
oxpect from thoir constituents If they
do othor thnn what thoy wero sent
In truth ns tho correspondent abovo
quoted snys tho driving force behind
this Insurrection Is vastly stronger
than moro objections to the two meas-
ures Involved. It Is nothing less thnn
widespread popular hostility to mn-
chlno rulo nnd boss dlctntlon In tho
congress ns woll ns In tho prlmnrles
and nt tho polls. Tho prosidont and
tho spoakor hnvo provoked n fight
In which victory for thorn would cost
thoir party moro dearly than dofent.
