Kelly at his office this morning; when
asked by a Herald man what the city
wag going to do.
He was asked if a new reservation
had been decided upon and said: "We
have not discussed the situation at all."
But you can say for me that these peo
ple will not be permitted xo scatter
over town "
The Hasty Xa.it.
As Salrini talkeu ne stood in front
of his place and looked up the street,
wnere the women occupants of the
small houses were gathering in knots
talking among themselves, with pass
ing acquaintances and curious men, or
were busy packing up tueir meager
belongings to move. Several express
wagons were standing in front of the
different places, either loading or
"waiting to load trunks, and an auto
mobile or two were puffing alongside
the curb waiting for women to come
out lor a hurried trip to the depot.
ft.t that hour 7 oclock practically
all the women "on the line" were
packing up to get out. One said she
was going to New Orleans, as she hur
riedly brushed her hair before her open
door and a Mexican expressman loaded
her trunk Into the wagon. Another
said she was going to San Astonio, as
she sat fully dressed rocking in a
chair in her room, her trunk by her
Mother and Daughter.
A mother, aged about 60, stood in
her door and denounced the "goodie
goodies' of El Paso, her rather dirty
old kimono hanging loosely at her
neck, while her daughter, aged about
15, sat in a room adjoining her, con
tentedly rocking, apparently qolivtouB
to all that was taking place and re
plying with "notain'" to a query as
to what she was Koinx to da.
Up the street tsmwamasi 4Uh asiwl
reservation attire of ' gtatdy Minim t
were making no move to get ready
to leave. One said she was not going
to move: another when' asked -what
all the excitement was about said she
did not know, adding: "Maybe they
are crazy." .
One Mexican woman and a Mexican
man were packing np the woman's
belongings in a gunny sack; This was
down at the lower end of the street,
near the corner of Third street. Sev
eral negro women from this end of
the street, fully dressed in long, flashy
cloaks and with big willow plumes on
their hats, stood in the street and dis
cussed the situation with men of the
Street Is Dark.
A few soldiers sauntered along the
street and passed remarks with the
girls as they packed their belongings
or sat aftfr packing- them and waited
until time1 to move. Occasionally a
civilian also saantered along. The
street did not have its usual brilliantly
lighted effect, however, as the doors of
the places were closed one" after an
other and the usual night brilliancy
avas soon changed to -darkness.; Broad
way was by midnight, the darkest it
has been for years.
Scattering Wtfraen Over Town.
In the "parlor houses"' "fe was dif
ferent. While the inmates inade prep
arations to move out some openly
said they were going to rooming
bouses in the city there were lively
scenes throughout the evening, livelier
than ordinarily, for the news that the
reservation was to close had gone out
and there was a rush of men friends
and acquaintances of the inmates to
say farewell and spend the last even
ing drinking and carousing. Some of
the "parlor house" women left during
the night, some this morning early,
hut most of them are still here. Those
that are leaving are scattering like the
less aristocratic of the same section.

New Mexico Senate Passes
It Over His Veto and the
House Plans to Do So.
SUBJECT IN HOUSE
iNTA FE, X. M.. March 1. The sen
ate of New Mexico has passed over
the veto of the governor the sal
ary bill . for county officers, and the
house has so far refused. Thus the
matter is in- as much of a muddle as
ever and the officials of the various
counties'of the new state are unable to
collect their pay for their past year's
services or for the present.
On receiving the veto from the gov
ernor Friday afternoon, the senate lost
little time in passing the measure, 19 to
S, but it -was different in the house.
House Takes "Up -Measure.
The house took up and considered the
measure for a similar purpose, but ad
journed before it was carried out. The
passage of the bill in the senate took
place a short time after the receipt of
a message from the executive announc
ing that it was "with mingled regret
and satisfaction that he vetoed senate
bill 104, relating to county salaries."
Senators Barth and Mabry made strong
speeches protesting against the senate
action and senators Halt. Hlnkle
Crampton and Doepp spoke just as
strongly in support of it. In the house
Messrs. Llewellyn, Chrisman, Burg and
Blanchard spoke for the passage of the
measure. No one opposed it.
Prohibition Measure Passes.
The house passed house joint resolu
tion 26, providing for the submission to
the people of the question of statewide
prohibition. It also passed the Rle
Grande improvement bilL
"My regret te not only on account et
the temporary disappointment to coun
ty officers, bet also because of my de
sire to avoid such a . disagreement wltji
the legislative branch of our state gov
ernment,"' said the governor in his veto.
"The satisfaction is from the fact that
the issue is now clear cut, distinct and
"With the exception of the changes
in the salaries of the officers in Sando
val county, this is practically the same
bill as was passed last June and which
I then felt it my duty to disapprove.
The issue, as it appeals to me, is, shall
all the county officers" serve the people
for proper and - reasonable compensa
tion, or shall the taxpayers " be com
pelled to contribute unfairly, in some
cases, to those" whom tfcey have selected
as their servants?
Great Tax Borden.
"In view of the great tax burden
which the anosle are labortag-

tion for the work performed, wnicn is
done by this bill. This occurs chiefly
i counties of the first and second
classes, although -there is ccmsweraoie
of it in the third class counties.
"I believe this oil! is wrong in princi
ple and unfair in details as they "have
been worked out. A net salary should
be provided, so far as practicable, for
all county officers and compensation
in each case, should be commensurate
with the services to be performed."
Senator Holt moved that the senate
pass the bill, the governor's veto to the
Kate thtu .x.ao flnnp
....ts w.. now .v..v.
Xot the Officeholders' Bill.
Mr Holt declared that the measure
was not an officeholders' MIL" He said
that only the countv superintendents of
two or three counties had asked to ap
pear before the committee while the
bill was being framed and that other
county officers who had appeared had
been called in by the committee to "give
information they possessed. He asserted
that the bill advocated by the governor-.
(senate bin izi ny jar. jcv;oy, was
$2,100 higher in the aggregate than
the present one.
The following was the vote: For
Abevtla, Bowman Burns. Clark. Cramp
ton, Doepp, Gallegos. Hartt, Hinkle,
Holt. Ilfeld. Langhren. Miera. Navarro
Page Pankey, Romero. Sulser and
Walton: total, 19. Against Alldredge.
Barth, Evans, McCoy and Mabry; total 5.
In the House.
At the conclusion of the debate and I
voting, nearly - everyone went over to
the house where the bill followed them
almost immediately. The rules were
suspended and it was taken up for con
sideration. The governor's message was read In
full and major Llewellyn entered upon
a speech in support of the "bilL while
Republican leaders made a canvass of
the house. The major said that the
difference between' this bill and that
favored by the governor, was abost as
( great as between tweedledum and
tweedledee. .He scored the Mccoy Dili
for giving opportunity to the county
commissioners to name unnumbered
deputies and declared that the present
measure would save the people $1M,00S
annually over what had been paid un
der the fee system.
Mr. Blanchard said as the meas
ure had passed the house twice and
the senate three times, he thought any
one who believed the men who voted,
for it were now to reverse themselves,
was badly misled. He said: "It is
this bill or a higher one. An extra ses
sion will cost more than the differences
between this and the McCoy bill." .
It was at this point that the house
adjourned on motion" of Maj. Llewel
lyn to Monday.
it is said that the adjournment was
taken because the supporters of the
bill found that they lacked two rotes
wc me necessary two-thirds majority.
These they expect to secure before the
bouse meets Monday afternoon.
When the senate, met at 2:30 a mesi

as much discussion as any single tat-
ute ever enacted in Arizona, has maae
its appearance in the senate: It- was
introduced by senator Hughes. Before
it becomes operative it must be passed

approved by the people.
Among. the bills referred to the peo

pioTiding that any debt incurred in
working a mining claim, whether by
owner or lesee. should constitute a lien
against the property. -Much objection
was n-ade, to it by the mining interests
of the state but the bM was approved
by an overwhelming majority.
The amendment provides that an
owner can evade having debts incurred
by lessees stand as liens against his
pioperty by posting prominently near
the mine, on the roaG leading to it, a
notice that he will not be responsible.
A notice must also be published three
times in a dally paper published in the

States Is Now a Law.
'MONEY TRUST' EXISTS
WASHINGTON. D. C. March 1.
By a vote of 244 to 96 the
house today repassed over
president Taft's veto, the Webb bill
J prohibiting shipments of Intoxicating
ltauora into "dry" states. The senate
passed it over the vet last night and
the bill now becomes a Jaw. Only one
other time in the last IS years has con
gress overridden a president's veto.
That was when the Balney river dam
bin was passed over president Roose
President Taft based his veto almost
entirely upon the ground that the bill
was unconstitutional in that it virtual
ly delegated to the. states control of in
terstate t riffle in liquor when, be held.
that control was vested solely in con
gress. Attorney general Wlakersbam
had eiven an ODinion also holdincr tile
bill unconstitutional and that the presi-
I dent forwarded to the senate with his
Big Majority for Bill.
The senate repassed the bill promptly
last night and early today house lead
ers favoring the measure, led by repre
sentative Clayton, chairman of the ju
diciary committee, and representative
Webb began working Tor an-immediate,
repassage. Debate was limited and the
house repassed the bill with a wide
margin over the necessary two-thirds
vote as the senate had done.
Supporters of the bill say it will
make effective the prohibition .laws of
"dry states, which, they say now are
violated because intoxicants are
shipped to private individuals and have
the effect of nullifying the local laws. '

sought safety under the British Hag
also were denounced.

"The friendly powers have shown
confidence in us," said president Hu

These representatives believe the new
government will bring about an early
pacification in all parts of the re
public. . "I repeat," said president Huerta,
"that to bring about pacification of the
country, which at tMs time is a su

Good news for the government from

claiming to represent Carranza, the re

disposed to recognize Huerta as presi

ances, the orders of Gen. Trucy Aubert
have not been altered and he will push,
the government campaign in the direc

An unusual feature of the situation
causing some concern is the attitude
of CoL Francisco Naranja, who is at
the head of a thousand men on the
railway between Monterey and Lare1
