Postmaster General Sees
that City Is Growing Fast
and "Needs New Building.
HERE AT NOON
Is Returning to Washington
From Vacation in Arizona
and New 'Mexico.
Kl Paso is to have a -new postofflce
building- in keeping- -with the size of
the city as soon, as the site has been
selected and approved. This was post
master general Frank Hitchcock's
message to the people of El Paso
when he passed through here Thurs
day on the Golden State limited, en
route to "Washington from Silver City,
"El Paso is growing- rapidly," said
the postmaster general. "The post
office building that is to be built
should be large enough to accommo
date the business of the city for sev
eral years to come. While I cannot
say how much it -will cost nor the ex
act date for beginning the -work, I am
sure that it -will be in keeping -with the
growth of the city. The exact date
will have to be left until the report
on the site is received, then it -will be
decided as to the size and cost."
Xo favorite Site.
While expressing no preference for
the sites that were shown by the post
master general -while lie -was here, the
one on San Francisco street near the
chamber of commerce impressed him
faorably and he remarked that this
was a desirable location because of
its proximity to the union station. The
postmaster general, was shown over
the business district in an auto by 1
postmaster J. A. Smith and collector
A. I. Sharpe -who met "him at the train.
Mr. Hitchcock -was accompanied to El
Paso by territorial delegate Ralph
Cameron, of Arizona, Albert M. Sames,
chairman of the territorial Republican
committee of Arizona, and Hoval A.
Smith, fcrmer chairman of the Republi
can committee and one of the political
leaders of the territory.
Visited Ft. Bayard.
Mr. Hitchcock came to El Paso from
Silver City, wnere he had been to see
his friend, James "T. Williams jr., edi
tor of the Tucson Citizen, -whom he had
heard was ill at Fort Bayard sanl-
tarfuni. Previous to his visit to Fort
Bayard the postmaster general had been
on a trip through Arizona and Cali
fornia, visiting New Mexico on his way
out and going to northern Arizona by
way of the Santa Fe and later to Tuc
son. He then visited Lake Tahoe, Cal
ifornia, ad other places in California
and Nevada, returning by way of Al
buquerque. Sir. Hitchcock was on his
way east when he received a message
that Mr. Williams was ill at Fort Bay
ard, and he went immediately to Silver j
City and to the government sanitarium
to visit him. Finding that Mr. Wil
liams's condition was not serious, he
went to Deming, -where he took the
Golden State limited for Chicago and

Governor of'- Kansas Calls
jIeetia of Protest at
Topelc; Kas.. Sept. 22. Governor W.
R. Stubbs, of Kansas, outlined the pur
poses of the Interstate rate conference
in a rather sensational' speech at - the
opening session here today.
The governor declared the -railroads
of. the country liave combined to advance
rates on a scale never before known.
He said the railroads have opened up
the whole question of ascertaining the
physical valuation of railroads by testi
mony of railroad officials before the in
terstate commerce commission.
He asserted that the public demands
nothing short of a bona fide valuation of
nil railroad property and .aid congress
should pass a law giving the interstate
vrmmpTVA commission authority to ascer
tain this valuation. This he said should '
be done before any general auvance 01
rates is permitted.
The governor also deplored the ten
dency of railroads to favor l.irge cities
in the adjustment of rates.

Cincinnati, O., Sept. 22. That there

It is deemed advisable by the Re
publicans to defeat Judson Harmon
not only because they want to elect a
Republican governor, but because of
the moral effect it will have on the
chances of the present Democratic gov

Harmon is considered a dangerous po
litical enemy by the Republicans and
they wish to eliminate him from polil
tics if possible, by defeating him in
gloriously at the polls this fall.
The Ohio political situation was gone
over today by president Taft. Among
the Republican leaders who conferred
with the president are senator Bur

Colorado Springs, Colo., Sept 22.
Progressive Republicans won., a sub-
siii.iiua.1 victory iu iue xvepuuiiuau
state convention which concluded its
sessions here last night by the selec
tion of a full state ticket.
In one of the sharpest fights in the j
history of the party in this state, they
prevented the adoption of a resolution
condemning the initiative and referen
dum, secured instead a plank favor
ing Its submission to the voters and
commending the action o'f Republican
legislators -who voted for such submis
sion, and thus paved the way for the
nomination for governor of state sena
tor John B. Stephen, a staunch sup
porter of the measure.
The national administration was en
dorsed; senator Guggenheim was com
mended for his work in congress -relating
to the upbuilding of the state,
and the Payne-Aldrlch tariff accepted
as a fulfillment of the pledge of the
national Republican platform for re
vision downward, but it was declared
that other changes will be necessary
in it and that they -'should be made
as speedily as possible." '
"Inequalities; 'the platform observes,
"will be found in any tariff law."
The extreme progressive wing of
the party, under the leadership of
Merle I. Vincent, who is credited with
the endorsement of Theodore Roose
velt, submitted a minority report strik
ing out the endorsement of Guggen
heim, commending LaFollette, Dolliver,
Bristow and Beveridge for their atti
tude in national affairs, welcoming
expresident Roosevelt's return to the
field of political discussion and strong

Grand Army of' the Republic in the
nation for the past year, during which
he has acted as its head, commander

dressed the delegates to the 4.4th na
tional encampment, as well with an
eye to the future good that the great
organization might accomplish as upon
the notable achievements of its past.
The commander was applauded when
he said no braver soldiers were ever
i marshalled for a conflict than the
southern soldiers and that the union
soldiers now realize that no men ever
made greater sacrifices for what they
believed to be right than heir former

Dollar Pensions Condemned.

Tie Commander Address.
While the roll of the Grand Army is
steadily shortening, the commanderin
chief urged that every effort be made
to keep the organization upto its full
est possible strength. He, quoted the
figures showing that the G. A. R. at the
beginning of the present year had still
213,901 members in good standing as
against 220,600 at the beginning of
1909. The Joss during the year was
67S1. of which 5323 was by death. The
.commander urged that recruiting meas
ures be taken among the large number
of former Union soldiers who are not
enroled as Grand Army members.
The speaker noted a better -ge'neral
observance of Memorial day than for
merly. "Let us insist and do all in
bur power," he said, "that Memorial
day shall be devoted solely and only
to the purpose for wnion it was cre
ated. Let" it be the one day of the
year devoted to honoring our 'deathless
dead, for in that way we will teach
the rising generation, love of country,
without which our nation cai.not long
survive." He also urged the general
cooperation of the G. A. R. members in
inducing a general observance of Flag
Of the more liberal pension legisla
tion recommended by the last annual
encampment and urged at "Washing
ton by its committee, commanderin
chief Van Sant said:
"I regret that notnir.g was accom
plished, but it was no fault of . the
committee. Congress would not pass
any general pension 'eg lation. How
ever, some 6000 private pension bills
were enacted. The committee canvassed
the matter industriously with senators
and representatives, but to no purpose.
'The government was facing a defi
ciency In its revenues and retrench
ment and the strictest economy was
the watchword. This was the reason
given for nonaction. In my judgment,
in view of the changed conditions in
