ELECTION OF
NEW MEXICO
SENATORS
Legislature Near Favoring
Popular Election; Repub
licans May Block It.
NORMAL SCHOOL
GOES TO CLAYTON
S'
ANTA PE, N. M., Feb. 5. As a re
sult of the passage by the house
yesterday afternoon late of a res
olution approving the amendment to
the federal constitution for the direct
election of senators, a peculiar situa
tion has developed in the New Mexico
legislature.
It is said that the Democratic and
"Progressive" members of the senate
are united for the adoption of the reso
lution, but that there is some question
as to where the Republicans will stand.
A change of but a few Republican votes
in the senate would pass the resolution
there, and as it is favored by governor
W. C. McDonald, he would promptly
sign it. The resolution will be reported
to the senate today.
Short Senate Session.
The senate of New Mexico was in ses
sion just 11 minutes Tuesday and ad
journed until H a. m. today. In that
brief time the following bills were
introduced:
No. 01 Holt, relating to the drawing
of venires.
No. 92 Walton, to provide for a tem
porary ta commission.
No. 93 Evans, nrohibittng the inter
marriage of certain persons.
No. W Holt, relating to recording
seals and validating acknowledgements.
No. 95 Holt, to amend section !4,
chapter lie, of the 36th legislative as
sembly relatin- to service of writs of
venire.
The committee on enroled and en
grossed bills reported that substitute
for senate joint resolution No. 3. rati
fying the income tax amendment to
the constitution of the United States,
had been enroled and engrossed, where
upon it was read in full and signed by
the president of the senate. It now goes
to the house for the signature of the
speaker, and thence to the governor.
The senate then adjourned.
Income Tax Measure.
It develops that New Mexico. Wyom- :
ing and Delaware, ail fighting for the
honor of being the pivotal 36th state to
put the income tax amendment into
operation, ratified the amendment on
the same day, and now 38 states have
ratified it. To just which one will be
awarded the honor of being the 36th
state cannot be told now, but this honor
will probably go to Delaware, because
of the fact that the legislature of that
state completed the formal legislative
-action ratifying the amendment about
?Jew Mexico m&L yrymmms. and Hie ac
tion in the two wesCciu states did not
occur until the afternoon sessions.
The judiciary committee of the nouse
has reported favorably a resolution to
permit reporters to attend committee
hearings. A similar resolution will be
introduced in the senate.
To Pay tavrjers' Fees.
A development which is causing no
little talk is Blanchard's house joint
resolution No. 9, which in effect appro
priates $500 to pay the remainder due
for the lawyers of the four repre
sentatives arrested and accused of bri
bery in the famous "room 44" incident
last spring. The facts in the ease are
that in house joint resolution No. 10
last spritufc the sum of $500 wujt
propriattfto pay B. R. Wright. etPRi
sel for the house in the bribery inTes
tigation. and $50o each to pay'CgE G.
W. Prichard and B. M. Read as attor
neys for the four accused men, Th
governor struck out -one of tike JM0
items for the Accused's attorneys, hold
ing evidently, that if $500 was enough
for the prosecution, it was also suf
ficient for the defence. At any rate it is
said Prichard and Read divided the
S.r.00, but still held the four accused
men responsible for the additional
$500, -which the governor bad disap
proved. Now this resolution would ap
piopriate $500 to pay these two lawyers
and relieve the defendant representa
tives of paying it themselves.
Passing Item Again.
When the resolution was being dis
cussed in the house, several wanted to
know If this had the effect of passing
this item over the governor's veto. It
-was pointed out to them that this par
ticlar resolution had never been vetoed
by the governor, and that a majority
vote in each house would pass it. With
this understanding, several voted for it
who also served notice that if the gov
ernor again disapproved this item, they
would vote against it when it came to
passing it over his veto.
Normal for Clayton.
The house yesterday afternoon passed
a measure locating the new New Mex
ico normal school at Clayton. Last year
it was ordered located at Clovis. but

WILL CATCH
TOURISTS TO
EXPOSITION
El Paso to Put on a Show in
1915, With Mexico as a
Sideline, to Attract.
TO TRY TO HAVE
EVERYBODY STOP
E
L. PASO, Arizona. New Mexico and
northern Mexico will entertain
transcontinental tourists en route
to the San Francisco exposition in
1815 in Kl Paso if the plans now being
considered by the chamber of commerce
and the business men of the three
states and two republics are carried
out.
During 1915 thousands of tourists
will make the trip to San Francisco fo
see the Panama-Pacific exposition aim
visit the Pacific coast. A majority or
these tourists wilt pass through 1
Paso over the Southern Pacific, the
Rock Island-Southwestern system, and
the Texas & Pacific in connection with
the Iron Mountain. By arranging with j
tnese railroads to advertise tne stop
overs in El Paso, this city will be
made one of the places where the San
Francisco pilgrims will stop off to visit
Mexico, the valleys and Kl Paso. ln-
corporated in the plans for the cele
bration, which is to attract these peo
ple to stop off in Kl Paso, will be the
celebration of the completion of the
Elephant Butte dam. the largest in the
country. An irrigation exposition here
and in the valleys wiil be included in
the plan for the big show to be given
here to entertain the visitors.
New Mexico and Arizona to Aid.
New Mexico will be invited to assist
in making this part of the celebration
a splendid exposition of the ancient art
41 irrigation under modern methods.
Side trips will tie planned to the big
dam, for those who care to visit, this
government project, and a model irri
gated ranch will also be established in
1 Paso by the experiment station at
the A. & M. college, to show the east
ern and middle western farm owners
the art of irrigation.
Arizona will be invited to send a
ET, SiJL.f'XSl "VVL"
resources of the Great Southwest and j
the Republic of Mexico. The state of J
Chihuahua will be given a special invi
tation to exhibit its products here dur
ing that time, in order that tne people
from the east may see what can be
produced in the republic A cattle show,
to include blooded stock from western
Texas. New Mexico. Arizona and Mex
ico, will be held during the exposition.
Juarez to Have a Part.
In connection with this great expo
sition of the natural resources of the
southwest fiestas win be hM in Jua
rez and iB&raden and the Os-AMe Jubi-
Bar44't "f.h0t,RB-
rviaBonvntiica win airra.ee we
visiting tourists! Special emphasis win
oe 4saa on tne proximity oi Mexico io
El Paso, and the slogan of the fair will
be "Stop in El Paso and see Mexico
en route to the Panama-Pacific ex-
nosition."
Special street car service will be ar
ranged for during the exposition sea
son and arrangeraemnts made for the
safe conduct of all visitors through the
old mission, the historic battlefield of
Juarez and the other places of interest
in the old town, by guides to be fur
nished by Kl Paso.
To Advertise Mexican Feature.
This special ieature will ue made the
advertising feature of the exposition
and resources fair, to attract the vis
itors to Bl Paso. This phase of El
Paso publicity has never been suffi
ciently exploited and the San Francisco
fair as aa attraction to draw the
crowds to tie west, El Paso will have
its big chance to advertise itself and
the Great Southwest. Stopovers will
not be given for any other city of the
southwest during the fair, railroad men
say, and El Paso will be especially
favored by being on the direct route
to the fair and a stopover point.
To Pull for Auto Travel.
In connection with the exploitation
of El Paso. Juarez. Arizona, New Mex
ico and Old Mexico, the automobile
travel will be directed through El Paso
by the various borderland routes and
this will add to the popularity of such
an exposition, as it will offer a spe
cial inducement for the autoists to
come by way of El Paso, rather than
by the northern routes. But the big
play is to be made for the tourists
from the east, north, middle west and
south who are going to California with
a dual purpose. While they are seeing
the country and the exposition, they
will be searching for locations where
they can make their homes, increase
their producing ability and at the same
time escape the rigors of the unsuitable
climate. To this class of tourists El
Paso and the southwest will offer
the inducement of cheap lands, govern
ment guaranteed irrigation projects,
fine climate and modern improvements.
Snn Francisco Man Urges It.
George C. Kaufman, formerly of the
American Smelting and Refining com
pany of Merico, and now located in
San Francisco with the same company,
was here Monday and urged such a fair
and exposition be given here to at
tract the crowds en route to the San
Francisco exposition. "We are prepar
ing for a great show in San Francisco
in 1916," Mr. Kaufman said. " There is
no reason why El Paso should not reap
a rich harvest from this fair by at
tracting the visitors to California here
for a stopover and a visit to Mexico.
There is your greatest circus asset
Mexico and If properly advertised and
exploited, it would be the magnet that
would attract thousands to come by
the southern routes and to stop in El
raso and see Mexico en route to our
fair. By having an exhibition of your
natural resources, including that great
beit of southwestern country embrac
ing New Mexico. Arizona, west Texas
and northern Mexico, your city would
reap a double benefit, for it would re
ceive the publicity and advertising, and
also bring many thousands of dollars
directly to El Paso in actual expendi
tures and prospective investments."

ment of their property, which measure
is still pending in the senate, and
which has passed the house. Recently
he received a lengthy petition from his
constituents at Port Arthur urging him

do not believe there is any consider
able demand for the legislation pro
posed, and in the second place. I believe
that such legislation Is ill-advised.
There can be but one head of any
family and the management of the
property producing an income for that
family must of necessity be lodged in
the hands of someone, and I do not
think that any prudent person would
ask for a law taking it out of the
hands of the husband and putting it
exclusively in the hands of the wife,
and it is doubtful in my mind whether
the people would consent for the wife
to control her own property exclusively
and manage the entire proceeds arising
therefrom if they underslood the pos
sible effect of such legislation.
Loral Option Regarding Pool.
For the evident purpose, of banish
ing pool and billiard halls from certain
sections of the state, especially In the
smaller towns, senator Johnson of. Hall
,i. will Introduce a bill in the
senate providing a system of local
option for the pool halls He proposes
to leave It to the people of a county
or sub-division thereof, as to whether
there shall, or snaii not . pwi mm
His bill provides that upon a petition
signed by 8 people of a county, the
commissioners' court shall call an elec
tion to determine the question, and for
a precinct, only SO signers are required
to a petition to have an election for
such a precinct. The senator does not
believe that the bill will affect the
larger cities in the state, but his aim
to j Hrive out the pool halls In tha
smaller towns, where boys congregate
with the result that affrays are fre
quent." This is especially so, he says,
in prohibition districts where boys
often go to these pool halls for tie
purpose of getting intoxicating liquor.
bill on the same subject is also to be
introduced in the house.

NO BIDS ON MANY
PURCHASES, CHARGED
PHOENIX. Ariz.. Feb. 5. The op
ponents of the administration
are going to insist on a thorough
investigation of the methods of buy
ing state supplies in vogue since gov
ernor Hunt took office. This will bo
preliminary to a bill reorganizing the
board of eontroi.
"We are going to show wherein the
methods of the Hunt administration have
been wasteful and contrary to law."
said- one of the governor's opponents
in the lower house. "Before -we do any
thing to change the present system, we
r wiil have the figures to prove that it is
oau. -rne investigation is not going to
be conducted with any blare of trum
pets but when it is over we will be able
to show the people a few things that
will surprise them about the way in
which the mandates of their constitu
tion are being carried out. After the
investigation has been made, wc will
be able to tell something more about
the kind of a board of control bill we
are going to introduce.
"Supplies have been bought time and
time again without bids being called
for, and I will wager that $5030 of tbe
state's money has been spent in pur-
j suing 'honor convicts' who escaped
irom roaa gangs. rne reoorus oi tne
board of control will show t i."
The first hostile move toward the
administration" came this morning when
the house passed a resolution demand
ing that the board of control vacate
the committee rooms immediately. Two
committee rooms are occupied by the
state officials There was a division
of the floor between administration
and anti-administration forces.
Callaghan's Attack.
Auditor J. C. Callaghan's report, at
tacking the governor on his prison
reform policy and on his methods of
appointing state employes, is now in
Hunt's hands. It is being thoroughly
digested by the governor, who says
that it will be submitted to the legisla
ture within a day or two.
"I do not deny that I have not con
sulted Mr. C&n&ghan in making ap
pointments," said the governor. "I do
not consider that I was required to do
so I appointed superintendents and
assistant superintendents of state in
stitutions, except in the case of seaools.

If r. Callaghan is not In a position to

neither has he visited the penitentiary

When Callaghan's report is sub-,

that the open fight on the governor
-will begin. His opponents have not de
cided how they will proceed but It may
be that a committee from both houses
will be appointed to investigate some
of the charges made bv the auditor.
The Senate Today.

To AbolInh Hangings.
Among several ether measures, sena
tor John T. Hughes introduced in tbe
senate Tuesday afternoon a bill sub
mitting to the people of Arizona a
constitutional amendment to abol
ish capital punishment in accordance
with governor Hunt's ideas; it was
merely read by title and laid over.
"I am not opposed to capital pun
ishment, but I am in favor of sub
mitting the question to the people."
said senator Hughes later.
This bill and the final passage of
the measure appropriating ? 50.000 for
the expenses of tbe session were the
features of Tuesday afternoon's ses
sion in the senate. The senators are
not going to run any unnecessary
chances on not getting their money
right away. Moreover, they are going to
get It once a week. The employes are
also to be paid each Monday, provided
the bill passes the house. It was sent
to the house before the close of the
sesion.
Appropriation Rushed Through.

duced by C. N. Roberts, of Cochise,
as chairman of the appropriations com
mittee. It was referred to the com

A report was spread that the Bul

Censorship Is Rigid.
A message from Belgrade this morn
ing speaks of the "heroic conduct" of
two Servian regiments which partici
pated in an attack on the outer circle
of forts. There is no means of verify
ing this or any other reports, as the
fighting is taking place behind closed
doors, so far as the outside world ;s
concerned. Dependence has to be
placed on the more or less biased
stories given out by 'the respective
army headquarters. Only on extremely
rare occasions can a newspaper cor
respondent succeed in circumventing
the strict censorship.
