All doubt as removed when the President this afitjnoon authorized newspaper correspondents, who had called to see him in the execiitive office, lo make the announcement that he would ai>- prove the constitution. The President explain L 'd that his dccibiou had been detennined at tlie election which has jist ^een held, the official returns from which have not yet been reported. The President made no secret of the fact that he did not pGrsonally ap prove of the constitution. But Iht enabling act provides that he shall is sue a proclamation within twenty days after the official returns have been reported to -him ratifying the constitution, provided th-Jt instrument republican in form aid eoraplie» with the terms of the enabling act. Thi>i morning the President saw Senator Curtis. He did not inform the Kansas senator of bis intentions. Later in the day he saw tho Attorney General, -Mr. Mood.v, and di;;cussed with him the provisions ot the const! j'tion. The President was advised that lh^re was nothing uuconstitution a." In the cdnstitution of the proposed state, and without furthfer forbiaUty decided to make known his intentions The Action f'uexpeeted. The President will start on his Southern trip Ujis week and expects to bi: gon>. several weeks. It will be im possible to submit the returns to him iiere during his long al)s?nce and a period of susjicnce was avohied by his pronipln.ebs In disposing of th': question. The President's decis'on at this time was totally niiexpccti?d The oDleial returns from the census taker shovviug whether th.. Iegi.~lature gerry P'ander was good. bad. or indifferent, had not beeii examined by him. nor did he wait to hoar from tho Oklaiio- ma contingent v.hich had organ'z'-d anew to urge reasons why the new state should be denivd admission. At- various times persous pretending to speak for the PresidcJi; have asserted hai he would decline lo issue a proclamation. No one has ever been aulhor- i;:eil to make any statements for the I'n.-ideiit on this subject. That ho did not lika many of tho provisions iu the proposed constitution, he has frankly stated and the President's ob jec'ions to them were voiced in the speech made, by Secrstary Taft at Oklahoma City. \Vhen talking of the constitution, tlie President laughingly said: What I think of the const tut/ou is unprintable." In a Ktalenieiit gi\eu befon; his d<> parture for Oklahoma, Secretary Tati called attention to the difference between opposing tht. adoption of a faulty constitution and refusing to issue a proclamation recognizing the sL-fte. The statement was published anonymously as coming from one authorized to sjieak but it was the Secretary of War who Jiiade. the announce meat that no one had any authority to say that the President would dis- apiirove the coiistitutioii. "faffs Altitude. The aitiiudo taken bv S»!crefar.v Taft was that the people of Uklatioma should voti. down a faulty cunstittitlon but that GO long as the constitution ot the United Stati.-ii was not violated and the provisions of the enabling act were carried out, the President would have to issue a proclamation. This 100, is the position the President has taken. The adminisiratton would have been much gratified with an adverse vote by the electors of the proposed new state but the constitution having be^sn ratified by an overwhelming vote, the President will not further Interfere. The pressure which has been brought to bear on the President to disapprove the enabling act has been tremendous. The Republican leaders of Oklaboma not o^lr made personal appeals and two Junkets to tbe WJUt? boose, but 'interested Republicans i.-f iia'Joual re- putatioti in the movement. The. appeal lo the national leaders ^iliich provt.d most effective was that tile new (state would elect Etemocratic senators laud reiirescntatives and give seviiU vojes to the Democratic electoral colump. With this knowledge for a weapon, the Oklahonians came to Y>ashingion and held numerous con- fi renccs before appealing to the President. Tht.y wanted an assurance that the President would turif down the constitution so that it would not be necessary for them to call a nominating convention and make a iiolitical campaign. The matter was referred t:) Secretary Taft. who insisted the campaign be made, and it was pointed out to the Oklahomans at th:s time that the matt?r was one which Oklahoma must determine for itself. The political complexion of the del« nation in Congress and the pertain fact that seven new electoral votes would PC into the Democratic column, carried no weight with th'.. resident. WHAT CONSTITUTION IS A Code of I JIWS Mather Thau a Guide for Future Leei^•hltIo^. Tiie Oklahoma constitution is the creation of the l>eraociiaic party a-s i'. exists in the new state. There were 112 delegates in the constitutional convention, of which WO were Demo Crats and life others Reiiuulicans. the new state has a norma! Democratic majority at this time of Perhaps 20.000. the election of d^^Je- gates allowed-an abnormal Democratic strength and abnormal RepubHcaji weakness. In the earlier days of the conveiitiop public opinion grew in-tjudiced to such an extent that the eoastit'itioii b-xame tho target for eritlc:.-m t.'iat was provoked by leaders and members of be Democratic party. Karly In the game, William .f. Bryan assun-,ed the rolD of godfather to tlif cc-n.stitiition. and last December ai dressed a letter to ih<- c nslitution ii: which ""he outlined what ht. believei' the constitutiim should contain. Mr Bryan was in fine feailn^r with the convention and liis siiggi'stioiis wen accejite'l. He said then that the <-ou stitution was tliu best vtate constJ_ tution ever written, ami that it wa; a l>etter constitution than the con slitutiou of the United State-?. Umier pressure of public opinion, however thv. consiitiitioual conve:ition assein bled afterward and adof.-ted more thai- thirty an^iMdinents to tie dociimen that had bc-n ko highly- jiraised by Mr. Bryan. Several of these, amend ments were made to e^icape tho dan ger of the constitution".-? being in coa flict with the Constitution of the. Un ited States. A WORK TRAIX WRECKED.
