Shawnee has an Incorporated Re-
publican club, with a large and rapid-
ly growing membership, composed of
sterling Republicans—meu who have
been with the party in Its work for
the welfare of Republicanism. The
Shawnee Republican Club is well
known in the centers of political life
both In Oklahoma, and In the capital
at Washington as the representative
of Republicanism of Shawnee.
The officers and members of the
club are all Republicans, men who
have always adhered to party prin-
ciple and who have expended time
and money for the cause. E. R
Waite is president, E. C. Stanard,
secretary, and the list of other officers
and directors have gone to work in
earnest to enlist In the club every
Republican in the city, and to arrange

McGuire on Statehood -Is Certain
That Bill Admitting Us Will Pass
Guthrie, Okla., Nov. 25.—Hon. Bird
S McGuire, territorial delegate to con-
gress, arrived In the city last night
to confer with friends before going to
Concerning the statehood bill Mr.
McGuire made the following state-
"I have a copy of the bill with me,
but there are some minor corrections
that I wish to make before the bill is
published. I will give it out however,
before X leave Guthrie.
"I have every confidence that the
bill will be passed this winter. It will
be presented to the house the first day
of the session and will pass that body
pass the senate before the first of the
year, but It Is there that the fight will
be. If there is one.
"In house caucuses of both parties
last season It was the unanimous de
cision that single statehood for the
two territories was the thing. In the
senate there are some members who
favor four separate states and some
who favor two states for Mexico anc1
Arizona and one for Oklahoma and
the Indian Territory. These senators
can delay legislation to some extent,
but I do not believe that they can pos-
sibly defeat the bill.
The greatest single thing that has
been done for the statehood measure
the statement by President Roose-
velt that he would recommend the
passage of a bill for one state for the
two territories and that he would take
affirmative action in the matter.
