open to secure the assistance of Miss
Ida Ashurst Bremen, one of New

There is also the possibility that a

on January 22 or 23, 1906, was a vis

day, having arrived In the city last
evening en route to Sania Fe, where
he goes for the purpose of securing a
residence preparatory to moving there
alout the first of the year.
When seen by a representative of
The Evening Citizen, New Mexico's
next governor talked very freely of
his plans for the future, the policy he
Intended to pursue, and some of the
ideas he had for the future betterment
and welfare of the territory.
"I believe in newspapers," said Mr.
Hagerman, "for I beneve that for

In this I believe that I shall have the

DEAD MAN AT MORGUE
UNDERTAKER STRONG RECEIVES

OF YPSILANTI, MICHIGAN.
The dead man at the morgue of O.
W. Strong's Sons has been identified,
at last, as Thomas M. Tliomoson. a
well to do and respected citizen of i
Ypsilanti, Michigan. i
Iast evening's mail brought to Al- I
buquerque a letter from George M. '
Goiiey, nuycr of Ypsilanti. In it were
enclosed photographs of T. M. Thomp
son which forever more established
the Identity of the dead man, for the
photographs were unmistakably those
of deceased. The letter requested the
undertakers to make sure of the dead
man's Identity and then wire blni
what the expenses would be of em
balming and shipping the remains
back to Michigan. This whs done Im
mediately by Mr. Strong.
Thompson was the man who started
to tramp home from California where
he failed In business and died on the
way to this city from exposure to the
wintry cold. The man's people in
Michigan were scarcely able to be
lieve that he had turned tramp as he
needed but to appeal to them for
financial aid to receive it.
