He Has Made Thousands of Friends by His Frank. Open
Manners and His Speech Yesterday Won Him Respect
of Everyone In Territory-Santa Fe Is Still In Gala Attire
and Is Crowded With Visitors.
Santa Fe, N. M., August 9. (Spe- '
clul) The public reception and ball
tendered Governor Curry last night
was the most brilliant social event In
the history of the Capital City.
Owing to a break in an electric light
wire the reception did not begin un
til nearly 9 o'clock and it was three
quarters of an hour later before the
The reception was held on the
second landing of the Palace hotel,
where Governor Curry met the hun
dreds of people who came to pay their
respects to the new executive.

In the receiving line, besides Gov.
Curry, were Territorial Secretary and
Mrs. J. W. Reynolds. Mr. and Mrs.
J. W. Riley, of Koswell. Mr. M. A.
Otero and members of the governor's
staff In full dress uniform. Col. J. D.
Sena, a staff officer, was master of
ceremonies and presented the people
to the governor.
It was almost Impossible to make
way through the crowds In the lob
bies and corridors of the hotel. Upon
the landing where the reception was
held for nearly two hours a solid
stream of humanity pushed and
shoved its way Into the receiving line,
met the governor and passed on to
the brilliantly lighted lobby below.
- Jtrlillant Ball.
When the ball began In. the large
ball room of the hotel there were 250
couples on the floor. Dancing was
Impossible for almost an hour, after
which, until 2 o'clock this morning,
the merrymaking continued, with In
termissions for refreshments.
At the request of Governor Curry,
who was busily receiving those who
came to pay their respects, the grand
march was dispensed with In order
not to delay the ball.
The music was furnished by the
Morrison Orchestra and was the best
ever heard in this city. The Capital
City band of Santa Fe, played
throughout the evening In the lobby.
Splendors of Decorations.
At the entrance to the hotel, across
Washington avenue, was a monster
arch of electric lights, red. white and
blue, spelling the words, "Curry."
The decorations within the hotel
and upon the approach were also In
red. white and blue, consisting of
flags and bunting so closely arranged
that the walls were well nigh hid-

everything is in splendid condition.
He has wholly revised uffalrs and the
rules of the penitentiary are closely

Many Lady Guests Stricken
After Partaking of
ACIDS ACTING ON IRON
RECEPTACLE THE CAUSE
Santa Fe, N. M., August 9. (Sie
dal) It Is estimated that thirty men
and women were affected by pto
maine poisoning at the big ball in
honor of Governor Curry at the Pal
ace hotel last night. The poison, as
nearly as can be ascertained, resulted
from the mixing of the punches In a
large galvanized Iron rectptacle,
which was affected by the acids.
Shortly after 10 o'clock, after a
number of people had partaken of
the punch, an urgent call was made
for all the doctors present, A num
ber of ladies in the rooms of the ho
tel and In the ladies' cloak room
were deathly sick, but there were
not any serious results as the poison
was not strong enough to result fat
ally and all were given prompt medi
cal attention and taken to their
homes in cabs.
Several of them are still confined
to their beds but the doctors In at
tendance say that the results will not
be serious. As soon as It was discov
ered that the punch was causing the
trouble, It was replaced by fresh
supply and care was taken that It was
not mixed the way the former had

Santa Fe, August 9. (Special.)
"I never heard a man with so little
of the art of oratory as It is ordi
narily defined, reach an audience as
did George Curry In addressing that
vast hall full of people yesterday af
ternoon." It this was heard once,
It waa heard dojens and dozens of
times here today'. " -
There is no use In denying that,
George Curry has the stuff in him
that makes great men. He speaks
In a convincing manner and his
words are short terse words words
like a military man would use and
words that mean Just what they say
no more no less.
Moreover, Georgs Curry strikes one
from the first mJnute as a man
among men a man who knows men
likes most men know books and who
reads them with equal ease.
"llig Future" for Curry.
A prominent visitor to the capital
city yesterday remarked: '
"George Curry will one day be a
big man bigger than the governor
of New Mexico and from the mo
ment he made that little talk yester
day upon the occasion of his inaugu
ration, he became a strong factor in
the politics of New Mexico. He wiil
continue to grow stronger as day by
day slips by and before the people
realize it, they will look up to George
Curry as a leader among men and a
leader whom no man may be asham
ed of. I do not mean by this that
George Curry will open his adminis
tration by a campaign having for Us
abject the Belt advancement and self
aggrandizement of George Curry.
The new governor la not that kind of
a man. He will be a leader because
It is in him to lead and he will be
popular because he has the sterling
qualities that go to make a man
popular. . .
A Strong Man.
"I have known George Curry for
many years. His friends say he has
not changed much. Perhaps he
hasn't. His shoulders have Bquared
away in military fashion he has
grown more solid and he has annar-lKl
entiy gained more firmness in his
make-up. I speak from a standpoint
of his physical appearance but as a
matter or fact i-urry has made slmi
I lar changes in his mental and moral
make-up and he is now a man fully
conscious of what he can do and what
he can not do what he should do
and what he should not do. George
Curry is going to be the most popular
governor this territory has ever had
and he is going to stop from this
position to a higher one. The people
of New Mexico will attend to that."
Nothing better Illustrates the posi
tion In which the new governor llnd.i
himself with the people than the
above remarks. George Curry will
prove himself the one man for the

Operators There Would Not

SEVEN MM MEN
AFFECTED BY ORDER
Employes In Denver and Salt
Lake Have Cone Out but No
Trouble Expected In
Chicago, August 9. Since last mid
night when two hundred operators
struck rather than work with the
strike breakers at Los Angeles, there
has been little doing In the Chicago
office of the Western Union Telegraph
company. A strike order Issued by
the executive board of the Chicago
local union to the night operators
applies also to the day men, thus af
fecting seven hundred in the main
Chicago office dv.-g the r!ny hjun.
Trouble was experienced today by
the brokers and commission houses
In handling their business. None of
their operators have been cnllel out
and all reported as usual. At 8
o'clock this morning about twenty
operators were at work In the West
ern Union offices and officials of the
company said that they expected
mere during the day.
Wesley Kussell, secretary of the lo
cal union, said the company would
not be able to man Its wires or han
dle its business.
There were no signs of disorder
around the Western Union building
today. Fifty policemen saw that no
crowds congregated around the build
ing or the board of trade.
Tickers Out of Business. '
An insane man rushed Into the
Central polloe station today and In
quired In an excited manner for
President Koosevelt, Saying that he
wanted' him to end the telegraphers'
strike at once. He was arrested.
Western Union tickers were al
most entirely out of business early In
the day and the men In charge of
this department declared that they
had no Idea when conditions would
Improve. This cuuses much Incon
venience to the brokers.
o Strike lit New York.
New York, August 9. The strike
of the telegraph operators in Chicago
today Is regarded by the company as
local In Its nature and not likely to
cause a strike here. The walk-out of
telegraphers In Chicago has hamper
ed the transmission of business both
here and In Chicago, but the wire
chiefs and chief operators are doing
all they can to move business.
President Clowery and General Su
perintendent Brooks held a confer
ence today to discuss the situation.
"There Is no reason why the strike
in Chicago should bring about a
strike In New York. This trouble In
Chicago is local in Its nature and
should not alTect this city. Only 60
per cent of the operators In the east
ern division belong to the union, and
In the event of a possible strike, we
would be able to handle business
without delay. The company is pay
ing telegraphers ten 10 per cent wage
Increase as agreed to In the settle
ment recently made, and there Is no
reason for a strike."
It is said at the local headquarters
of the telegraphers' union today that

of the trouble in Chicago is very

clnl) Attorney General George W.
Prlchard tendered his resignation t

soon as his successor has been ap
pointed and qualified. His resignation
as submitted by the attorney general
Is as follows:
August 9, 1907.
Hon. George Curry, Governor, Santa
Fe, New Mexico.
Sir; When I was appointed attor
ney general of this territory by Acting
Governor Reynolds it was with the
understanding that It was to be a
temporary appointment to last only
up to the time of your taking the
oath of office as governor. Wholly
unsolicited by you and with a desire
on my part to retire from the office
of attorney general on account of
personal business, I hereby resign the
office of attorney general, to take ef
fect on the appointment and qualifi
cation of my successor.
GEORGE W. PRICHARD.
Hid Ileoaons for Rexignlng.
The attorney general said: "1 real
ize fully that, the attorney general of
the territory is one of the closest of
ficials to the governor and that hi
advice Is constantly needed by the
executive In conducting the affair of
the territory. I also realize that each
governor desires to have the office
of attorney general filled, as a rule,
by a man with whom he has. had long
experience and who Is familiar with
his plans and policies.' At' the time
I accepted appointment to the of
fice of attorney general It was with
the understanding that I should only
hold the office until the arrival of
Governor Curry. I know that the
new governor has a man in mind for
the office of attorney general and I
therefore tendered him my resigna
tion so as not to embarrass him in
any manner, and in doing so, I as
sure him of my highest respect and
regard. I do not care to remain thir
ty days longer in the position If the
new governor will fill the vacancy
sooner, as I have private business
which has suffered during the last few
months by lack of attention and to
which I should at this time be de
voting my efforts."
It Is understood here this after
noon, but can not be verified, that
several territorial officials will follow
the precedent of the attorney general
and submit their resignations to the
new governor, to be accepted at his
convenience. It cannot be learned
who these officials are If the report
Is correct, but there is undoubtedly
some truth in the rumors since they
come from a number of sources.
