WASHINGTON, May 2X Thre demo
cratic members of the Oklahoma constitu
tional convention, Messrs. Ledbetter, Moor
and Hayes, appointed a committee by the
president of the convention, W. H. Mur
ray, to come to Washington and confer
with the legal officers of the government
respecting certain developments affecting
the election to ratify the constitution, ar
rived' in Washington today. This afternoon
they had a talk with Attorney General
Bonaparte... 'calling his attention to the in
junctions .which have been Issued rentraln
Ing the governor from Issuing his election
proclamation and the election of officers
of the territory from performing certain
duties and asking that the attorney gen
eral take steps to have the legality of Uus
action looked Into.
Incidentally they took up the recent de
rision of Judge Pancoast, which In effect
defers until late In 1906 the election for
the ratification of the constitution recently
Mr, Bonaparte's Position.
Speaking subsequently of the commit
tee's islt, Mr. Bonrpart admitted that
the gentlemen from Oklahoma had asked
him to appoint government counsel to de
fend certain suits growing out of the action
of the constitutional convention. The at
torney general replied that tkls course
would seem to Identify the Department of
Justice with one side of the controversy
to the exclusion of the other, to which he
thought there was- serious objection. In
reply to the statement that the people of
Oklahoma desired to act in strict observ
ance of the law In framing their constltu
tlon and to that end asked for any sug
gestions the department might see fit to
make, the attorney general said the situa
tion was peculiar and In part, at' least, so
far as che knew, unprecedented. He thought
It would involve a serious question of
policy whether any such suggestion would
properly be made In advance of the final
adoption of the constitution and Its sub
mission to the president, and that In any
event the law and th practice of the de- .
partment forbade the attorney general to
give any legal opinion unless requested so
to do by the president or a head of one of
the executive departmenta
In an Interview here today, Mr. Led tetter
said he had received satisfactory assurance
that the president had not said he would
refuse to Issue a statehood proclamation.
On the contrary he felt satisfied that tha
preaidnnt would Issue one when convinced,
as he would be, that the constitution la
republican In form as required) by ' the en
abling act. The delegation. Including Gov
ernor Franta, will remain In Washington
until the president's return.
Statement l Committee.

stn4-ment detailing the facts they presented

this ordinance and panued one in accord
ance with Judge Burford' opinion, but an
injunction suit wss filed before Judt?e Pan
coast, who, the committee said, held in 11
reot opposition to the opinion of Judge Bur
ford and that the second ordinance was
contrary to the enabling act and Invalid.

attorney general that the convention de
sired to follow the law In submitting a con
stitution to the voters of the proposed stat
and would like to have from the Depart
ment of Justice a construction of the en
abling act aa to Just what powers the con
vention has under It In providing for an
