Abstract

It is the purpose of this thesis to trace the Statehood Bill of 1902 through the Senate, giving a brief picture of the leaders and most active participants in the debates, presenting the major arguments of the two opposing factions, and relating the methods used to bring about the defeat of the measure. Through an examination of the parties and policies of the Senators who took leading roles in this life-drama, an attempt has been made to determine the extent to which politics, sectional interests, and personal concerns of the politicians were influencing factors in the dispute.
