EFFORTS TO DRAW

Santa Fe, N. M-. May 24. The
stormiest legislative session in the his
tory of the new state occurred late
yesterday afternoon in the house.
Speaker Baca ordered the sergeant
of arms to restore order but the lat
ter was powerless and the speaker
had to threaten to call in the officers
before some semblance of order was
had. The riot broke out over three
resolutions brought in by the organ
ization of Roosevelt Republicans and

Democrats, organized by former del

which is headed by speaker Baca. Col.
W. H. H. Llewellyn and John Baron
Burg. One resolution provided for the
dismissal of the election contests
against members Juan Casados and
Marceltno Martinez, both Democrats,
whose seats were contested by Repub
licans. A second provided for an in
vestigation of every county official
in the state by an Investigating com
mittee of 30 of the 49 members of the
house, each member to receive J5 a
day from the time of adjournment on
June S, to the reassembling of the
legislature in January, while doing
committee work. The third resolu
tion provided for the investigation of
every state office and state institu
tion. The regular Republican organiza
tion to which the majority of the Re
publican members of the house belong,
sought to defeat the measure but could
only muster 15 against 29 votes.
Speaker Baca wielded his gavel vigor

and many members thereof, has re

taxpayers, urging and demanding that
the financial condition of the various

that the Interests of the taxpapers j

UPON EXTRA SESSION
Phoenlx. Ariz.. May 24. After a
warm discussion in tne house today a
joint resolution iptrodsced by Whip
ple, providing for the eleotion of state,
county and precinct officers during
tbe coming fall was laid on the table.
Saxon declared the house would show
it bad .lost its head If It gave serious
consideration to such a resolution. He
said the law either does or does not re
quire the governor to issue a call for
such an election, and said ' those who
think the law does not meet such pro
vision and who want an election would
do better to enact a law than to con
sider a resolution.
Representative Moore declared the
resolution would have ri"b effect. He
suggested that if officers were not to
serve three years the constitution be
amended and an election held next
spring. Linney moved to lay the resolu
tion on the table and the motion pre
vailed with but scattering opposition.
Bills to regulate the driving of mo
tor vehicles, for the publication of su
preme court reports, for a board of
control and for the supervision and ex
amination of banks were introduced in
in the senate bills providing an in
heritance tax and creating the office
of state -engineer, making an appropri
ation for a road fund, creating a boule
vard district, defining contributory
negligence, providing for publication
by newspapers of theaiaines of owners,
stockholders, managers and creditors
were Introduced. The senate spent
mbch of the day discussiong the work
men's compulsory compensation act. '
The Phoenix legislature which was
convened In extraordinary session yes
terday will consider 35 matters of im
portance to the state. Thirteen of these
are constitutional provisions, requir
ing legislation to make them effective.
Menth'u Work Ahead.
When they began talking some time
ago of an extra session of the legis
lature, the wise ones said they
thought that about two weeks would
suffice to wind up all the necessary
business. But nobody hears many of
them talking that wsy since the gov
ernor's proclamation was issued. Con
sidering the program which Mr. Hunt
has marked out for the lawmakers, it
is realized that if they get through it
in a month they will be doing pretty

tnis session will, in some respects, be
even more interesting and imnortanc
tnan was tbe regular session, for, the
reaaoo that some warm flgats are ex
pected to develop And since all the
legislation that is to be considered is
now known to be strictly in line with
the governor's policies and wishes at
least nominally so there will be a
chance to see just how far the admin
istration's opponents are willlns: to tea
in their antagonism to the governor, in
cases where there is a difference of
opinion between the executive and the
law making branch of the state gov
ernment. There are 39 matters to be considered
by the legislature at this session. In
other words, governor Hunt. In his
proclamation, urged upon the law
makers the necessity of enacting 39
laws covering all these questions. Here

Says Rebels Are Far From

Although the defeat of the rebel

rebel chiefs In Juarez, they say thev
do not think the revolution Is at an
end. The rebel officers were all a
little downcast Thursday evening
when the sews or the rout of Orozcu s
forces from their Rellano positions
was reported in the city, and Friday
too, many of them were anything but
cheerful. Still they say they will re
main and see the fight to a finish.
"The battle at Rellano," said Co..
Pascual Orozco. fattier of the revolu
tionary chief, and himself milltar
commander of Juarez, "might be called
a deieat for our forces, but still it
was not a decisive one. The revolution
will go on as It has and the Rellano
affair will only tend to retard tbe
revolution and make the end longer
than It would have been if we had
taken the battle. Rellano itself Is of
no strategic Importance and the posi
tions of our men were taken In the
rolling country which surrounds It.
The federals anyway did not take our
positions as they fell back to Eaca
lon while our men fell back to Cor
ral! tos and Jimenez. The advantage
which went to the federals can be glv
en wholly to the artillery of thei"
forces, and it was because we did not
have sufficient artillery that the fed
erals were not put to rout.
