Santa Fe, N. M., August 8. (Sic
cial) -George Curry was Inaugurated
governor o New Mexico at 2:21
o'clock this afternoon when he took
the oath of office in the midst of the
most brilliant assemblage ever gath
'ered together at an Inauguration In
The oath was administered by
Chief Justice Win. J. Mills, who, to
gether with Associate Justices Par
ker. McFie and Abbott, ex-Governor
M. A. Otero, Territorial Secretary J.
W. Reynolds, Attorney General O.
W. Prlchard and Judge A. B. Fall,
occupied the speaker's stand with the
The hall of the house of represen
tatives was crowded until It was Im
possible for one more person to
squeeze through the doors. The gal
leries were filled to their utmost ca
pacity and people were standing In
the halls, the corridors and upon the
stairways and there were several
hundred people upon the grounds
surrounding the Capitol building.
An Eloquent Introduction.
Following the administration of
the oath, A. B. Fall, In a lengthy and
eloquent address, introduced the new
governor and gave a brief review of
his career. Those who heard the
speech of Judge Fall are of the opin
ion that it was one of the most mas
terful efforts ever heard in New Mex
ico. In a subtle way it conveyed the
Impression that Judge Fall was out
lining on behalf of Gov. Curry his
idea as to what constituted good gov
ernment and of the .policies to be pur
sued by him.
Judge Fall spoke openly and frank
ly. He deplored the recent political
conflict as one of the most Injuri
ous things to the territory of New
Mexico in its entire history and he
expressed the hope that the people of
New Mexico would rally to the sup
port of the new governor, laying aside
political quarrels and factional differ
ences, and that they would work for
one end, namely the advancement of
the territory of New Mexico, Its in
dustries and Its developments and for
good government. He paid a high
tribute to President Hoosevelt, and
he severely scored the people and the
pre that has precipitated the recent
uncalled for attack upon the repub
lican party and the republican lead
ers. Curry Is Qualified.
He reviewed the life of George
Curry In this territory, In the army
and in civil service In the Phllippne
Islands and he said; "If George Cur
ry has not the qualifications for a
governor of New Mexico, In God's
name, what is required of a governor
of New Mexico:"
He said that he felt and that he
believed the people felt that Georee
Curry is the man for the place and
that his administration will be an ab
solute success in every way.
When Gov. Curry rose to speak
his voice could not be heard for sev
eral minutes because of the terrific
applause. Indies and gentlemen
alike arose to their seats, clapping
liand and handkerchiefs and para
sol wire waved in the air and one
cheer after another completely
-irowned every word the new execu
Governor Curry is not a man of
jvords. but a man of action. The
strong, decisive manner in which he
uttered what he had to say showed
his character better perhaps than
anything else could have done. He
said that he desired to be judged by
his uctlons rather than his words.
He said he was not ashamed of the
record he had left In the Philippine
Islands and he believed he had the
good will of the people of New Mex
ico with him.
He eulogized the president nnd
slated that he would advance nnd
carry out to the best of his ability
in every way. shape and form, the
policies of President Roosevelt and
the repub'ican party.
He asked that the people cooperate
with him for good government and
the advancement of New Mexico, and
he expressed the hope that New

Mexico would secure statehood at
the hands of the next congress. He
stated that he was in favor of single
statehood first, but If It could not be
secured, with Joint statehood next.
He said that he Intended to go to
Washington to work for a statehood
bill and that he would do everything
In his power to secure statehood;
that he hoped his term of office as
governor under the territorial form
would be even shorter than that of
H. J. Hagermnn, and that his time
of office would be terminated by the
admission of New Mexico to the
union as a state.
Will Work for Ktatcltnod. ,
In' conclusion he toW the peopi
that If they united with him and sup
ported him, he would give them his
word that everything he could do for
the cause of good government and
the speedy admission of this terri
tory to the union as a state would be
done with nil his heart.
The governor then thanked the
people for the reception tendered
him and the hearty welcome given
him upon his return to New Mexico,
and attempted to sit down. Cheers
upon cheers rent the air and there
was a crush of people, with every one
pressing forward at once to shake
the executive by the hand.
For fully an hour the new govern
or was kept busy shaking nanus with
old friends and new friends. Those in
the hall after paying their respects
passed out and a continuous stream
passed In. It was undoubtedly tne
most strenuous hour in the new gov
ernor's life, despite his rather strenu
ous military experience.
Man of the People.
That Gov. Cunry will be one of the
most poipular executives New Mexico
ever had is assured. He Is a man
of the people. He knows the peo
iple. The crisp, short sentences he
uttered in his speech this afternoon
went straight to the heart of every
listener. Santa Fe has never seen
speaker stir an assemblage such as
was present today as did George
Assumes Ills Duties.
Following the Inauguration and In
formal reception ,the governor was
escorted to the executive office and
has taken up the reins as governor
of New Mexico.
This evening at 8 o'clock there will
be an enormous public reception St
the Palace hotel followed by the
most brilliant ball of the social season
In Santa Fe.
One of the most notable things
here today was the fact that the lead
ers of the republican party are all
Ax Is Buried.
There appears to be absolutely no
political or personal differences. Th?
ax, if it ever existed, has been burled
and everything points to a stronger
administration of territorial afTalrs
and a stronger republican party than
ever In the history of New Mexico.
It is bulleved that the absolute fair
ness ghown by Governor Curry will
have the effect of straightening out
many a difficulty In political circles,
and will result in perfect harmony
and unity In the republican ranks.
Santa Fe, N. M., August 8. (Sh
elul.) The W. H. Andrews Republi
can dull, headed by the American
Lumber Company band, reached this
city at 1 o'clock today, after a pleas
ant trip, and was met at the station
by a big crowd of people. The club,
led by the band, formed In line and
marched from the depot up town and
circled the plaza. About forty mem
bers of the good government league
of Albuquerque, who came on the
same train, also fell into line and
marched behind the Andrews' cub.
The city Is elaborately decorated
with Hags and bunting and It is es

TELLS HIS PLANS
The new governor, George Curry,
gave the following interview to a
Citizen representative this morning:
"The onlv instruction 1 receued
from President Roosevelt on the ec-
casion of my recent visit to Oyster
Bay was to do all In my power to
give the people of New Mexico an
nonest. economical business adminis
"I will support the administration
of President Roosevelt and carry out
his policies to the very best of my
ability. In view of the present po
litical condition in this territory,
wth which I have not yet had time
to thoroughly familiarize myself. I
do not care to make a more extended
statement at this time. I think it
w411 be on the whole better for me
to let the people Judge me by my
actions rather than by my words.
"I hope that the people of New
Mexico and especially the press, will
drop personal and local grievances,
and that we may all work for the
advancement of the territory. In my
opinion, political strife and dissatis
faction may retard statehood, which
is greatly to be desired. I am in
favor of single ('lehood for New
Mexico If it can be secured but will
accept Joint statehood with Arizona
In preference to none at all. I did
not discuss statehood with the presi
dent upon my recent visit, but I In
tend to make a trip to Washington
later, probably at the reconvening of
the next congress, to try to get a
statehood bill through. There aro
few senators and congressmen now
In the national capital.'
No Cliungca at Present.
When asked If he contemplated
making changes among territorial
officials, the governor said: "There
will -be no changes for the present at
least; later there probably will be
several. I Intend to proceed very
slowly In the matter since I think
that is advlsolble. If I feel that there
are any territorial officials, who are
not In harmony with the administra
tion, I shall possibly make changes;
but I Intend to keep the boards of
control of the different territorial In
stitutions entirely nonpartisan, having
In view the best Interests of the In
stitutions, first, last and all the time.
"I shall appoint republicans to of
fice where possible, but I shall en
deavor above all things to appoint
good, honest and competent officials.

enthusiastic delegations that ever left
the city. Train No. 10 with four ex

this delegation, left here at 7:4a this
morning and the party arrived at the
eaipltal on time. The plauform at the
dam a re station here was crowded
with a host of republicans and a few
members of the good government
league. The W. II. Andrews He pub
lican club was represented by at least
150 republicans, and, taking into con.
slderatlon the big delegation that
went from here yesterday, there are

There was not a vacant seat In any
of the cars when the train left the
depot. The American Lumber com
pany band, which had been engaged
by the W. H. Andrews Republican
clufb for the occasion, rendered a
number of excellent selections while
waiting for the train to depart.
This band was a conspicuous fea
ture of the Inaugural parade In the
capital city today. The republican
delegates from Albuquerque wore
white silk rtobon badges bearing the
words printed in large letters: "Curry
and the Square Deal Albuquerque
Citizen." ' Many of the most promi
nent men of the city were numbered
In the republican delegation and all
were enthusiastic in regard to giving
the governor a rousing greeting.
On train No. 10 a second large
delegation from Socorro and other
southern points arrived here and
were met by the Albuquerque repub
licans. It Is evident from the large
number of prominent persons Who
flocked to Santa Fe today that Oover
nor Curry will receive the support
of the best people of the territory.
A Squuro Deal.
The Andrews He-publican club at
tends the inauguration under the
imrtlo, "Curry and the Square Deal,"
and Is pledged to support this prin
ciple to which the in-coming execu
tive has committed himself. The dele
gation Is out and out for good gov

About 200 Itemiiillcans.
The so-called "good government
league" made a strenuous effort lJ
get together a crowd to represent the
league at the Inauguration, but It did
not succeed to any alarming extent.
Those of this organization who were
scheduled to go this morning were:

Perfecto Armljo, Probate Judge Jesus
Homero, M. H. Springer, W. W,

A few of this number, together
with aifout fifteen others whose
fares are said to have been paid by
the league, boarded the train for
Santa Fe this morning and took seats
apart from the delegation of two
hundred republicans en route for the
cajrllal. Failing to make up in en
thusiasm for their sad lack of num
bers they were able to give but a
feeble greeting to the new governor
to whom they claim to be bound by
the "ties of love and loyalty."
A number of republicans from San
doval county Joined the party here,
making the trip to the capital with
the local republicans, but they re
fused to mix lth the reform crowd
and the sumo rendition prevailed all
the way to Santa Fe.
The pitiful attempt at representa
tion made by the good government
Uaxue was a mark for laughter on
the part of the hundreds who crowd
ed around the station, desiite the
eanly hour, to see the republicans off.
It was a lucky thing for Albuquer
que that the grand old party took
up the matter of attending the In
uuuratiou in proper style, for had
not the republicans taken affairs in
charge as they did, the representa
