Constitution Makers are Getting Down to
Business—Sensational Incident Con-
cerning Invitations to Col Henry
Watterson and Joe Bailey.
OUfHRIE: The constitutional con-
vention baa taken a decided stand
against the presence and work of lob-
byists, of which there are a hoBt here
and planning to arrive this week.
The convention Friday passed a res-
olution asking for the apprehension
and conviction of all lobbyists. The
action came as a bombshell to the
liquor and railroad Interests. Later
they pointed out that It will also op-
erate against the anti-saloon, suffrage,
and county seat lobbies.
After hearing an address by Judge
Henry Shepard of South McAlester.
urging the sale of the segregated
lands' surface, separate from the min-
eral rights, and the sale of town sites
t<» the persons now settled there, the
convention authorised a committee to
draft a memorial to congress In the
The sentiment seemed to be favor-
able to state ownership of the mineral
rights at least, and possibly to state
ownership of the fee In the lands.
"Thirty thousand people are now liv-
ing on them,” said Judge Shepard.
"If these people are not protected In
their Improvements, they will be
turned Into the world penniless."
R. L. Williams In making the mo-
tion for the committee, said that the
railways were looking on the mineral
lands with greedy eyes, plotting the
accomplishment of a monopoly.
At the farmers’ union caucus It
was decided to act within the par-
ties. The protest of the party lead-
ers had been great at the Inner or-
ganisation of the 50 farmer delegates.
They will act as farmers’ union groups
In each party, however.

vention adjourned Friday evening

C. N. Haskell, who never passes up
an opportunity to Inject a little hu-
mor Into the proceedings, moved as
an amendment that the Impeachment
and removal committee be numbered
23, and that the labor and arbitration
committee be changed from that num-
•fier to No. 40 on the list.
Thursday’s session was featured by
the voting down of a resolution to In-
vite Col. Henry Watterson, editor of
th-i Louisville Courier-Journal, to tfs-
lt and address the convention, and the
hard fight required to carry a reso-
lution Inviting Senator Joe Bailey of
Texas. The Bailey resolution carried
by a vote of 46 to 33. The convention
then reconsidered its action In the
Watterson case and voted to extend
The following Invitations were by
the unanimous vote of the convention:
President Roosevelt, Col. Moore, pres-
ident of the National Good Roads As-
__________ Texas; Senator R.
M. LaFollette of Wisconsin, Congress-
man John Sharp Williams of Missis-
sippi. William J. Bryan of .Nebraska,
Senator Ben Tillman of South Caro-
lina, and all the United States sena-
tors who are now visiting Indian Ter-
ritory Investigating the segregated
coal land conditions. There were
many cries of "No” when the invita-
tion of Senator Bailey was read, and
It escaped a slaughter only by a ma-
jority of thirteen votes. Senator La-
Follette is requested to speak on rall-
v'ay regulations. Delegate Hausen of
Coweta protested against the Invita-
tion to Watterson because he bolted
Bryan In 1896. The Watterson invita-
tion carried with it one to Senator
Ben Tillman of South Carolina.
The first real fight of the conven-
tion was disposed of the evening be-
fore the convention opened, In the
selection of “Alfalfa Bill” Murray of
Tishomingo for president, by the dem-
ocratic caucus. His principal oppo
nents were W. C. Hughes of Oklaho-
ma City and Pete Hanraty of South
McAlester. The Hughes’ forces threw
their support to Hanraty finally, but
to no avail. Mr. Murray had 60 voteB
to 26 for Hanraty.
The republican minority gave Phil-
lip Hopkins of Muskogee the honor
of the nomination for president.
Peter Hanraty was named for vice
president and John Young of Lawton
After his election had been an-
nounced, Mr. Murray made a brief
speech of acceptance, saying that the
nineteenth had always been his lucky
day and that he had never failed In
anything on that day. He also refer-
red to the fact that he had been mar-
ried on that day.
His speech declared strongly
against corporations and for separate
coaches and schools.
A very elaborate reception and ball
was given In honor of the delegates
at the Elks’ club rooms with Gover-
nor Frantz leading the grand march.
The rooms were beautifully decorated
for the occasion, and the reception
was very largely attended. In spite
of the Inclement weather. A buffet
luncheon was served at 9:30 o’clock,
and dancing began at 10:30
The convention formally opened at
2:30 o’clock Tuesday, November 20,
with Delegate H. S. Johnson of Per-
ry In the chair.
In calling the convention to order
Mr. Johnston made a brief address
very befitting the occasion, and fol-
lowing that, on a motion by W. J.
Caudill of Granite, seconded by R. L.
Williams of Durant, Delegate J. S.
King was made temporary chairman
and was escorted to the platform by
Delegates Williams of Durant, Rose of
Blackwell and Caudill of Granite. In
accepting the honor Mr. King deliver-
ed a brief address. On motion of
Luke Roberts of Olustee, John M
Young of Lawton was named secre-
tary of the temporary organization.
Governor Frank Frantz entered the
hall at this moment and was called
to the platform by the demand for a
speech. He responded briefly, saying
“1 am proud to stand before this
constitutional convention. I desire to
assure you of a hearty welccdne from
the territory and of the hearty co-op-
eration of the territorial officers. I
wish you all a very successful conven-
Chief Justice Burford was sent for
and the oath of office was admin-
Intorpri tn the dole crate*
The convention then proceeded to
the election of permanent officers with
the result agreed to In the democratic
caucus of the previous day. Mr. Mur-
ray for president received 97 votes
to 11 for Hopkins. The latter voted
Other officers elected were: W.
A. Durant, sergeant-at-arms, and D.
C. Oates of Alva, assistant sergeant-
The convention unanimously adopt-
ed the resolution presented by Henry
E. Asp of Guthrie, seconded by Harrl- j
son of Indian Territory, asking for a
committee of ten to be named by the
president to confer with the disburs-
ing officers of the convention to as-
certain how far short will fall the con-
gressional appropriation In the ena-
bling act for defraying the expenses
of the constitutional delegate elec-
tion, with the end In view of present-
ing a memorial to congress for more
funds. It is estimated that an addi-
tional $50,000 will be necessary.
8econd Day’s Session
The feature of Wednesday’s ses-
sion of the constitutional convention
was a warm fight for state rights.
The Incident originated In the intro-
duction of a resolution by Delegate
Baker of Wewoka providing that In
order to comply with section three
of the enabling act, the convention
proceed to declare on behalf of the
people of the new state that they ac-
cept the constitution of the United
States as the supreme and paramount^
law of the state of Oklahoma. /
Judge Ledbetter of Ardmore was.
Immediately upon his feet after the;
reading of the resolution with a vlg-.
oroua protest, and moved to strike
out the words "supreme and para-
mount.” He said: “The federal con-
gress In prescribing the conditions
and limitations under which the con-
stitutional convention of Oklahoma
should act, went farther than In the
history of any other state. I want
to resent the action of congress In
placing such limitations upon us. Let
us assert our rights as a soverign
state. We have been limited, and
wrongfully so, by the provisions of
the enabling act. Therefore we are
compelled to go Into the union of
states with heads bowed by reasons
of the limitations placed upon us
by the Uuited States government. I
differ from Mr. Baker, who con-
tends that the constitution of the
United States is the paramount law
of the state. It Is the supreme law of
the United States, but in no respect
Is It the supreme law In the state.”
Delegate Henshaw of Madill and
others supported Ledbetter’s conten-
tion, a large number, however con-
tending that the federal constitu-
tion should be recognized as the su-
preme law In the state, because no
state Is empowered to exceed its au-
thority and is strictly under its pro-
The warm discussion that was In
progress, and was threatening to be-
come even warmer, was clogged by
the motion made by Komegay of
Viulta to leave the matter to a com-
mittee of ‘three to draft a resolution
covering the subject.
The election of a second vice pres-
ident and a reading clerk was the
main tu-.mess of the afternor.i ten-
sion The men placed In nomina-
tion for the second vice presidency
were F. E. Herring of Elk Citv and
A. II. Lllis of Garfield county. The
laPer won over Herring by .i vote of
<jl to 30.
R. L. Williams of Altus was elect-
ed reading clerk, and In defeatlnfPW.
W. Vandevier, of Coweta, for this
place, the convention let go of its
last opportunity to recognize the news-
paper fraternity In the organization
of the body.
Owen Watts, whose father Is may-
or of Salisaw, and Albert Greenwood
of Guthrie were appointed pages bv
president Murray, both appointments
being confirmed by the convention.
Greenwood was the only appoint-
ment awarded to the Republican ml-
8ECRETARY TAFT CHECKS DIS-
CHARGE OF NEGRO TROOPS
AT FORT RENO
BUT HE AFTERWARDS RENIGS
President Roosevelt Would Not Re-
open Case Unless New Evidence
Was Presented to Disprove
Hie Recent Findings.
WASHINGTON: The war depart-
ment issued the following statement
Wednesday concerning the negro
troops ordered dismissed at Fort
"In the matter of the order dis-
charging the enlisted men of three
companies of the Twenty-fifth infan-
try Issued by the president, applica-
tion was presented to the secretary
of war by a number of persons of
standing asking for a rehearing by the
president on the ground on which the
action was taken.
“The secretary telegraphed the
president of the application and de-
layed the proceedings of the discharge
until the president could Indicate his
wishes. The secretary was meantime
called out of town. No answer was
received from the president. The sec-
retary on his return did not feel Justi-
fied in further delaying the execu-
tion of the order of discharge, espe-
cially In view of the fact that the sec-
retary then learned that the president
had fully and exhaustively considered
the argument against the order of
the persons who now applied for a
rehearing. Accordingly the secretary
directed Tuesday that the proceedings
for discharge be continued without
Later In the day Secretary Taft re-
ceived a dispatch from President
Roosevelt and Issued the following ad-
"A telegram was received from the
president at 11 o’clock after the previ-
ous statement was grven out at the
war department, in which he de-
clines to suspend the discharge unless
there are now facts of such import-
ance as to warrant cabling him. He
states that the action was taken after
due deliberation and that the only
matter to which he can pay heed is
the presentation of facts showing the
official reports to be in whole or In
part untrue or clearly exculpating
some Individual. If any such facts lat-
er appear he can act as he deems ad-
visable, but thus far nothing has been
introduced to warrant the suspension
of the order and he directs that it be
Secretary Taft says that immediate
steps will be taken to recruit colored
soldiers to* replace the men discharg-
ed. Members of the three companies
who were on a furlough at the time of
the Brownsville affair and three mem
bers who are to be tried by court mar
tlal will not be mustered out.
It was authoritatively stated here
that the matter of the dismissal of
the troops had not been brought to
the attention of the president by the
White House officials since he left
Washington more than ten days ago.
None of the protests which have been
filed against the carrying out of the
action have been received at the
White House, but have gone to the
While no definite promises were
made, it is understood that during
the senate committee’s stay In Mus-
kogee they assured t» prominent offl
clal there that in all probability Mus-
kogee will have a public building erect-
ed soon after Oklahoma becomes a
state. The senators promised, it is
said, that they individually would do
all In their power to secure an ap-
propriation for that purpose. The
building, If erected, would be occu-
pied by the postmaster, the Dawes
commission and the Union Indian

MUSKOGEE: After traveling all
the way from Boston, It took 13-year-
old Harold Carson, a would-be boy
bandit, about ten minutes to find out
the real life t of a bandit in Indian
Territory and get behind the bars of
a federal prison.
Harold had read too many wild-west
Zach Mulhall-Wyckliffe stories and
imagined that to him the simple life
in Boston held very little. So he
started out to become a "wild outlaw ’
In Indian Territory, according to the
statement which he made to officer*
at Vinlta where he Is In prison.
He beat his way to Chicago, thence
to St. Louis and arrived at Vinlta
with a little "pop gun” which he im-
agined was orthodox In banditlsm. He
saw a good horse saddled and bridled,
hitched to a post and mounting, was
a fullfledged horse thief and outlaw,
in his mind. But his career was cut
short. The horse he had taken be-
longed to C. A. Riddle. The boy had
not reached the city limits when he
stopped to inquire the way to Coffey-
ville. The man he stopped happened
to be Riddle, and the latter promptly
asked where the boy had gotten the
horse. The explanation being unsatis-
factory, Mr. Riddle took the boy In
charge and then it was the story of
his ambition was told. The officers'

they send him to a reform school

FOR NEW STATE
OUTLOOK NOW 18 THAT THERE
WILL BE THAT MANY.
Forty-two to Be Situated In Oklahoma
Where There Are Now Twenty-
six County Dlviaiona.
GUTHRIE: The present outlook la
that the new state of Oklahoma will
have within its borders 90 counties.
The present territory of Oklahoma has
26 counties, Indian Territory has 2ft
recording districts, which In many re-
spects are similar to counties and tho
constitution adopted by the Sequoyah,
convention at Muskogee gave to Indian
Territory a total of 48 counties. With
Indian Territory divided Into 48 coun-
ties as ">111 probably be the program,
the territory of Oklahoma must there-
fore be divided Into 42 to fill out the
total of 90.
This, therefore, calls for many
changes In the present map of Oklaho-
ma territory. It means the division
of many of the present counties, and
In some Instances the division several
times of one county. In this plan,
which looks toward the total of 90, Is
included the division of Woods, Roger
Mills, Kiowa, Greer, Comanche and
Woodward into two or more counties.
At least five and perhaps six coun-
ties are to be made out of the pres-
ent counties of Greer, Kiowa and Com-
anche and from the oldtime “No Man’s
Land” is to be three more. The Os-
age nation will perhaps remain a sin-
gle county, as that seems to be the
desire of a majority of the people liv-

County Seat Lobbies at GutHrie.
GUTHRIE: The question of coun-
ty boundaries and the location of
county seats Is one of the absorbing
Interest at the present time, and there
are no lobbies busier than the men
who are watching the Bpeclal Inter-
ests of tho various towns that are ap-
plicants for county seat honors. In
his speech of acceptance, on the open-
ing day of the constitutional conven-
tion, President Murray stated that he
understood that there were at least
one hundred of the one hundred and
twelve delegates who would like to
be the chairman on the committee to
fix county boundaries, and he might
not have missed It by stntlng that all
the one hundred and twelve are appli-
cants for that position.
In addition to Indian Territory,
where all the counties and county
seats are to be provided, there are
also some fights of this same nature
In Oklahoma Territory. It Is pro-
posed to make seven counties out of
the three counties of Greer, Kiowa
and Comanche. The county of Greer

located. If the lobbyists have the say
so, at Hobart and Mountain Park. In
the two counties, now covered by Co-
manche, the county seats are to be at
Lawton and Frederick.
In Northwestern Oklahoma also
there nre several county seat and
county division fights In the balance.

There was much good natured riv-
alry in the drawing of seats in the
convention hall. It was done by lot-
tery, the delegates drawing numbers
trom a box, which was passed around
by Haskell of Muskogee. Delegate
McCance of Mutual, the only newspa-
per man to have a seat In the conven-
tion, drew No. 13, and Delegate Cy
Leeper of Sulphur drew No. 23. The
seats numbered from 56 to 60 Inclu-
sive, and from 98 to 105 inclusive,
were nwarded to the Republicans,
which bunches them In the west end

the same good nature. Delegate Asp
