WOMAN HELD FOR
OREGON TRUNK MURDER MYSTERY
HUSBAND'S DEA TH
Portland, Oregon. Jusve 21. The blunder of murderers In wrongly routing
a trunk that contained the body of their victim, late yesterday, disclosed the
sinrdcr. The victim, V.'illiam Johnson, nith his wife and Tyearold son,
arrived here 3Ionday in company with a man who went by the name of C. S.
Power. Powers registered as from Nome, Alaska. Johnson did not give his
Powers and 3Irs. Johnson were arrested nt an uptown lodging house
early today. They were located through finding the. boy, and were appre
hended as they were returning from an automobile trip to a suburban resort.
Both were badly intoxicated and denied all knowledge of tlie crime.
When the trnnk containing the body arrived at the union station, it was
fonnd that It could not be shipped as the Instructions read. Then "it was set
aside and later it was discovered thi blood was running from it. It was
broken open and the body found.
The police set to work immediately. Mr. JoTmson had a large sum of
money on her person, which she said her husband, who had sold a farm, had
Siren her to keep.
Judge Albert B. Fall, former attorney
general and one of the leading figures
In New Mexico politics, although he is
making his home in El Paso at present;
thinks that the present statehood bill
wiich has just passed congress and has
been signed by the president, Is the
best the territory can get at present and
as such, must be accepted by the people
of New Mexico, although there are a
uuxuex ul uujecuonaDie reatures in i
the bill. One of these cited by judge I
Fall is the qualification for "holding i
state offices. This is to the effect that !
anyone elected to office must be able to
speak the English language. "There is
no danger of anyone being elected to a I
state office in New Mexico who cannot I
speak English." judge Fall" said, "vet J
me people ieel tnat the paragraph is a
slight on them and is unnecessary. The
same is true of the educational qualifi
cation that English be taught In the
schools. English has been taught in
the schools for years and has been re
quired by the compulsory education law
since 1891. These seem unnecessary
and out of place In such a bill as much
so as they would in the constitution of
any other state.
People Not Tested Fairly.
"There are certain other clauses in
the bill which say that so and so must
be done and these clauses are Irrevoca
ble hereafter. This does not put the
people of New Mexico on an equality
wsith the people of other states for no
such restrictions ever entered into the I
constitutions of any other states. The
voters resent this, for there -Is no more
reason that this should be done with.
New Mexico than any otlrer state in the
union. Then, the way in which the con
stitution must be approved by both
the president and by congress is an
other objectionable .feature. The con
stitution to be adopted by the consti
tutional convention "must first be sub
mitted to the president for his approval.
If it meets his approval it is then sub
mitted to congress and If congress
either approves It or does not disap
prove it, the president will then Issue a
proclamation declaring New Mexico a
state and calling for a state election in
! selecfrthe officers. No nthpr to- or
came into the union under such condi
tions. If the provisions of the present
statehood bill are adopted and later the
people wish to hold a constitutional
convention to amend it, It would be
necessary to go to congress and get its
permission to hold the convention, a.
thing no other istate is required to do.
"I do not think that there will be a
state election in New Mexico before 1912
unless the next congress takes immedi
ate action pn the statehood matter. Then
a special election could be held. Un
der the provisions of the statehood bill
there will be no elections this fail The
present officers will hold over until the
constitution is accepted and the state
election ordered. I hardly think thfcs
will be done before 1912, when I pre
dict that the election will he a hot one.
There is a strong feeling throughout
the territory for a non-partisan consti
tutional convention. Personally I am
m favor of an absolutely non-partisan
conventon and I think it will eventual! v
amount to that. Thf ttvn not-tia,. m
