NO CHANCE IN BILL
STATEHOOD GRIND WIUC BEGIN
WEDNESDAY—TWO DAYS MAY
SEE IT SETTLED
INSURGENTS STRENGTH FIGURED AT 41
Bill Will Be Accompanied With a
Rule Against Separation—No Chance
to Be Cut Loose Without Losing
Out on Statehood
WASHINGTON: As the result of a
conference in the speakers' room (ft
the house, it was decided to bring up
the statehood bill in the house Wed-
nesday of this week.
rl he full strength or the republican
"insurgent" vote against the bill was
canvassed during the conference and
estimated at 41. With a full attend-
ance of the "stalwarts" this vote can
be overcome. The bill will be accom-
panied in the house by a rule prohibit-
ing the division of the statehood ques-
tion. It is estimated that two days
will be occupied in considering the bill.
Wm. H. Andrews, delegate to con-
gresr from New Mexico, appeared be-
fore the house committee on territc
ies at its hearing on joint statehood.
Hp said although there is some oppo-
sition in New Mexico to joint state
hood, he believed the proposition
would carry by a good vote if submitt-
ed to the people. New Mexico would
j/refer single statehood but rather
have joint statehood than remain out
Of the union.

Senate Committee Considers Statehood
The statehood bill has been under
consideration by the senate commRtiv,
on territories. The bill was read at.
length and a number of minor changed
agreed upon. Among the amendment)
discussed was one for the insertion c f
a prohibition provision for Indian Ter-
ritory similar to the house and it profi-
ably will be incorporated in the bill.
The question of joint statehood n>r
Arizona and New Mexico was nut
brought up. There is no intention of
reporting the bill until after the hou*e
adjourns. Friends of the bill claim
that all the republican members of the
committee and one democratic mem-
ber, Mr. Clark of Arkansas,, will favor
the reporting of the measure suBstan
tially as it was introduced.
SITE FOR ORPHAN'S HOME
Odd Fellows' Committee to Select a
City by April 20
OKLAHOMA CITY: On April 20,
next, will be decided a question im-
portant to all Odd Fellows in Okla-
homa, that of selecting the site for
the Orphan's Home. At the recent
meeting of the grand lodge held at
Perry a committee of three from the
Odd Fellows, to work in conjunction
with two members of the Rebekahs,
were to form a committee of five to in-
spect every offered site in the terri-
tory and make their report not later
than the 20th day of April. The quali-
fications which the successful building
site must contain are: That it must
be near some good town; the town
should be on a railroad; it must pos-
sess an excellent school system; the
site should be near enough to town
that the children could attend the
schools therein if desired to educate
them there; the site shortld consist
of 100 acres of land, but propositions
will be considered for a smaller tract;
all of it must be of the very best
quality from an agricultural stand-
point; good water must be of easy
access, running water, timber or both
would be much desired. The question
of an orphan's home for the 1. O. O.
F. nf Oklahoma has been up at each
anninl meeting of the order, and an
effort will be made this time to settle
it for good.
Former Delegate Rodey Declares Ari-
zona Wants Statehood
WASHINGTON: B. R. Rodey, form
er delegate to congress from New
Mexico,created a furor at a hearing on
the joint statehood bill before the
house committee on territories by an-
nouncing that corporate interests in
Arizona had suppressed public opin-
ion in favor of joint statehood and
declared that a popular vote on the
question would show a decided majori-
ty in favor of the admission of Ari-
zona and New Mexico as one state.
There has been intense persecution In
Arizona, Mr. Rodey declared. "Special
interests have perpetrated outrageous
and scandalous suppression of public
opinion for the last six months. Thou-
sands favor joint statehood who do
not dare to say so.''
The members of the anti-joint state-
hood league who were In the commit-
tee room united in a protest against
the statement, but In response to tne
chorus of "No," "no," from the Ari-
zonans, Mr. Rodey declared that the
corporation forces who are opposing
the joint statehood measure do not
dare to submit the joint statehood
proposition to the people of Arizona.
Representative Lloyd of Missouri,
asked Mr. Rodey if it were not true
that the president and spaker of the
house were forcing the joint statehood
issue. Mr. Rodey asked to be excused
from answering this question, and
Chairman Hamilton, of Michigan, inti-
mated that the democrats were being
forced by their organization to oppose
Reprseentative Moon, of Tennessee,
interrupted the argument to say: "I
object to the gentleman from Michi-
gan and the gentltman from Missouri
having this fuss here when in private
they express opposite opinions."
Mr. Rodey denounced the system of
taxation in both New Mexico and Ari-
zona and said corporate influences
have been draining both territories
and holding down their taxes. Under
joint statehood, he said, the people of
the two territories could unite ana
curb these influences and prevent their
public domain from being stolen. He
pronounced the denunciation of trie
Mexican population in New Mexico as
ridiculous, and said the Mexicans were
religious and lawabiding and in no
sense a menace to the welfare of the
In answer to questions from Repre-
sentative Moon, Mr. Rcdey made a de-
tailed statement of how corporate In-
fluences get control of territorial gov-
ernment which are dominated by fed-
eral office holders. He frankly said
that he and Delegate Smith and other
well known men ride- on railroad
passes and place themselves under ob-
ligations to the companies. Under
statehood he said, governors would be
responsible directly to the people and
the public demand for increased tjixes
on corporate interests would be re-
spected for political reasons.
Mr. Rodey'g speech closed the state-
hood hearing before the house com-

Harvard's Deficit $30,743
Harvard university failed by $30,-
743 to pay running expenses for 1904-
1905. Its deficit for the previous
year was $35,000. The deficit was
incurred last year despite an increase
in available funds of $1,280,272, mak-
ing a total of $18,036,025.
Harvard has faced a deficit for
three years, but each year it has fallen
away about $5,000. The deficit is
met from a permanent fund known as
the insurance and guarantee fund, but
one more deficit of $30,000 will wipe
that fund out.
The teachers' endowment fund of
$2,400,000, which the graduates have

tra courses, are expected to reduce
the deficit. The law school was the
best paying of all the departments or
the university last year, clearing $41,-

AN EXAMININATION OF EREAS-
URER'S OFFICE DISCLOSES A
SHORTAGE OF $78,000
TOPEKA, KAS.: A total shortage
in the Kansas state treasury of about
$78,000 Is shown by the report of Ac-
countant Morris in the treasury ex-
amination just closed, according to a
summary of the report prepared by
Gov. E. W. Hoch. The report covers
all the transactions made by the state
treasurers from January 1, 1898, to
June 30, 1905, including the two full
terms for former State Treasurer
Frank E. Grimes, and one term and
six months of the administration of
Thos. T. Kelly the present state treas-
urer. The bulk of the shortage ap-
pears In the accounts of the office dur-
ing the Grimes administration.
Of the total of $78,000, $60,000 is
due to missing coupons from bonds
owned by the state school fund and
$18,000 is due to the loss of interest
on warrants issued by the territory of
Oklahoma to the state of Kansas.
Former State Treasurer Frank E.
Grimes issued a statement in which
he absolutely declines any responsi-
bility for the shortage in Oklahoma
warrant interest and says he Is able
to account satisfactorily for all the
bond coupon shortage except $7,215.
Mr. Grimes states that he is willing to
make good any shortage he was re-
A Mighty Good Sort of Neighbor to
"A little widow, a neighbor of mine,
persuaded me to try Grape-Nuts when
my stomach was so weak that it
would not retain food of any other
kind," writes a grateful woman, from
San Bernardino Co., Cal.
"I had been ill and confined to my
bed with fever and nervous prostra-
tion for three long months after tho
birth of my second boy. We were in
despair until the little widow's advice
"I liked Grape-Nuts food from the
beginning, and in an incredibly short
time it gave me such strength that I
was able to leave my bed and enjoy
my three good meals a day. In two
months my weight increased from 95
to 113 pounds, my nerves had steadied
down and I felt ready for anything.
My neighbors were amazed to see me
gain so rapidly and still more so
when they heard that Grape-Nuts
alone had brought the change.
"My 4-year-old boy had eczema,
very bad, last spring and lost his ap-
petite entirely, which made him cross
and peevish. I put him on a diet of
Grape-Nuts, which he relished at once.
He improved from the beginning, the
eczema disappeared and now he Is
fat and rosy, with a delightfully soft,
clear skin. The Grape-Nuts diet did
It. I will willingly answer all in-
quiries." Name given by Postum Co.,
