ALL NOW IN READINESS FOR FORMAL RECEPTION Once, not many weeks ago, ft plain, unpretentious, democratic Bort of young man stepped off a Santa Fe train at the depot here. No one met him. Quietly he made his way to the lobby of the Alvarado hotel." This young man was Herbert .1. Hiigormiin. The Welcome. Last nlpht this name young man stepped off a Santa Fe train at the depot here, but what a difference. A -.rowd that packed the platform of the lepot and overflowed onto the veran das and grounds of the Alvarado ho el; a military band, a battery to fire the governor's salute of seventeen guns; a receptlou committee from the Commercial club; all were there, to welcome this same young man. who now Is the chie.f executive of the glor ious territory of New Mexico, and the ovation that wont out to Governor Hagerman as he stepped from his car shortly after 7:30 o'clock last evening, has seldom if ever been duplicated in this city, with the exception of the president's visit. Received With Cheers. As the train bearing the governor, together with Adjutant General Tark ington. Attorney General Prlchard and Iand Commissioner Keen, of Santa Fe, and the escorting committee from this city, steamed In, the First Regi ment hand struck up a welcoming ode In ragtime, but when the governor ap peared at the door the shout that went j up irom tne assembled spectators drowned the playing of the band and the noise of .the engine. It proved conclusively that the citizens fit Al buquerque were heart and soul in ac cord with the new governor. Salute, Fired. When the train had stopped a line was formed and the governor was es corted to the lobby of the Alvarado where he met the reception commit tee. Shortly after he was conducted to the dining hall, where an Impromp tu dinner was served with the gover nor as the guest of honor. While the party was at dinner, the repast con suming an hour's time, the crowd on the outside, who were anxious to catch a glimpse of New Mexico's new exec utive, filled the verandas and yards, listening to the band and the firing of tne governor's salute of seventeen guns by the battery. After dinner the governor conversed with the members of the escorting and reception com mittees and at 1 ' : 3 Lt p. m., retired, after expressing his gratification to these committees lor the maimer in which he had been received. Morning Entertainment. This morning after the governor had aroso and breakfasted lie met a number of Albuquerque citizens and merchants who called upon him in the lobby of the Alvarado and fter a short time speut in social conversa tion an automobile party of two ma chines was made up for a ride around I ho city and a tour of inspection of the public schools and University of New Mexico. In the first machine, Col. Sellers' "Red Devil," were Professor J. E. Clark, superintendent of the city schools; Prof. A. B. Stroup, superin tendent of county schools; J. II.

The second machine contained Gover nor Hagerman. Col. W. S. Hopewell, president of the Commercial club; ex Governor E. S. Stover, and R. I,. Ilod Hon acting as chauffeur. The Cornell Yell. After a short spin around the city the party was guided to the Univer sity. As the governor stepped out of tho auto and entered the college grounds, the uag of Cornell University Governor Hagerman's alma mater, wai unfurled to the morning breeze, and tho Cornell yell, given with gusto by the New Mexico university students rang out. The governor acknowledg this little courtesy by removing his hat and saluting the colors. After tour of inspection through the Univer slty buildings and campus, the party again entered the automobiles and was conducted to the different ward schools, making short stops at eac one, until the High School was reach ed, where the governor was greet by the students with the High school yell. Just before leaving the students performed a drill for the benefit the governor. The party then return ed to the Alvarado. Lunched and Received.

HAGERMAN'. querque wno cuueu. Atter this re ception the governor was again taken in charge by tne reception coiiiiniltee who found entertainment for him the remainder of the afternoon. At Club Tonight. At o clock the governor will dine with friends after which he will rest until U o clock when he will be con ducted to the rooms of the Commer cial club by the reception committee The rooms have been beautifully dec orated, as told in yesterday's issue of I he Evening Citizen, and everything is in readiness lor the formal reeep tion which will no donbt be one of the niost elaborate affairs ever held i:i Albuquerque. During the course of the reception a sumptuous banquet win do spread, at. which David Combs and his corps of white waiters from the eiger restaurant will officiate in the dispensing of the several courses of the banquet menu. Tho governor will be conferred with later in the evening and his wishes for the follow ing day's program learned. Will Remain Over. While it Is not positively known as yet just what program will be carried out, the governor will probably meet several ot the local politicians tomor row morning lor a conference con cerning the appointment of a probate cieiK. Several other business mat ters will be attended to by tho gover nor m the morning. Including the de livery of an address before the bank ers' convention. He has been asked to remain over until tomorrow night for the purpose of attending the bankers' banquet at the Alvarado, and has ac cepted the invitation. He will leave Saturday morning for Santa Fe. HAVE YOU PAID YOUR POLL TAX? THIS IS TO THE BANKER AND LAWYER AS WELL AS THE LAB ORER DELINQUENTS ARE BE ING SUED. Have you paid your ioll tax? If you haven't, you had better. Today li will cost only , Tomor row It may cost 3.50. This is the decree of Justice Craig, who has been given rha painful duty of making poll tax dodgers pay up. The time for paying this tax wes up some time ago, and the poll books were turned over to the court ti be checked up. those who have paid checked off and those who have neglected to pay sued. Forty-five of these suits have already brought results and SOo more are scheduled to follow. The prospect of tho enforcement of the Liukfield bill in congress, meaning the cutting off of the gambling license revenue f l he schools, has had much to do with the city scho. 1 iMiard's pressing the court to push the delinquents and none will be spared. The banker and tiie. lawyer will be called into court to snow reason why they have not paid as well as the lalsirer. Justice Craig saiil this morning that it was this class that constituted the majority of l he delinquent. Strange," said the court," bin 1 find that it is the class thai can lictter afford to pay that triis to escum.- pay ing. When asked what was usually the result on the serving of the MiniiiioiiH in a i ase the Justice staled that the prompt payment, of lorh tax and costs usually followed. The costs amount to f-..'jU, which added t the tax of 31 brings the total cost up to $3.50. Some are undtr the impression that they aro exempt localise of an age limit specified by law. This is a mis take. The law says that every able bodied male person over the age of 21 years inu.-i pay poll tax. and only firemen and old soldiers are exempt. And the old soldiers are only exempt because the school trustees have m specified in keeping with a precident lliat has long existed. CONLEY'S LAST HOPE FLED THIS MORNING MOTION FOR HABEAS CORPUS OVERRULED BY JUDGE ABBOTT HERE TODAY. One hundred pairs of boy's knee pants, worth lic anil 75c, special, 2'ic per pair. Simon Stern, the Railroad avtuutj clothier. The last hope of saving or prolong ing the life of John Couley, who will die on the gallows tomorrow for mur der, a full account of which appears elsewhere in these columns, fled this morning, when Judge Ira Abbott over ruled the habeas corpus proceedings brought by Mark Thompson, attorney for the condemned man, for a stay of execution. Attorney General Prichard was in the city today and represented the territory at the bearing which con sumed the greater part of the morn ing. Judge Abbott listened to the ar guments of the lawyers, pro and con, and decided that there were no grounds for sustaining the habeas cor pus proceedings, therefore overruling the motion. This was the last move of the law yers lor I ne defendant, and with its failure all hope of saving the man's life was given up. In conversation with a representative C)f this paper Au toiiiey t.eneral I'richard said: "There is no doubt in my mind but wnat ( oiney is guilty, and should pay tne run penalty for ihe foul crime that ne committed. It lsn t reasonable to suppose, as Couley declared, that a l'.i-year-old boy Is going to attach witn an ax a man who Is armed with a pistol and who has Just killed an other man. I don't believe Couley had the slightest provocation for murder. and if the full truth were known I be lieve it would be discovered that Red ding was killed while pleading for his life." In speaking of his reported resig nation from the Ksition of attornev general, Mr. Prichard stated that he would resign some time In the near future owing to a press of other busi ness matters.

Mayor Mch.ce expressed the pleas- uie or tne residents of Albunueraue at the presence in the city of the bank ers oi tne territory. He stated that as one of the banking fraternity it was equally a pleasure to bid them wel come. Mayor McKee turned the keys of the Duke City over to the delegates in the course of his breezy, entertain ing remarks, urging all to use them unhesitatingly. He explained that com. mittees would be at the service of the visitors to show them about the city, explain to all what had been done in the past aud what would be done In the future. He sincerely trusted that the visit of the linkers would be both enjoyable and. profitable. Col. V. S. Hopewell, president, of the Commercial club, who was slated to deliver an address of welcome In behalf of the club, was not present consequently the pleasure of hearing this entertaining speaker was neces sarily deferred until stub tinte that he could lie in attendance. O. N, Marron's Address. The next pleasure of the convention was listening to an address of wel come by O. N. Marrou of this city in behalf of the bankers of Albuquerque. Mr. Marron said that in bidding the bHtikeis welcome for the local bankers he did so in no perfunctory or formal way. The heartfelt pleasure of the Albuqui rque fraternity, he said, goes forth to every member and all were bid a hundred thousand welcomes. In' selecting the Duke City as the first place of meein?. Mr. Marron said that he assumed that Albuquerque w.'s given credit for being the chief com mercial center of New Mexico. He thanked all far this glowing tribute. He assured the assemblage that, the Albuquerque bankers were pro.id of so distinguished an assemblage repre senting, as they do, everything that is good in their respective communities. I assure you, gentlemen, we are proud to have you as our guests and trust you stay in our city will be prof itable and thoroughly enjoyable." ' C. N.' Blackwell's Reply. C. N. Blackwell's reply to t3ie kind words said was a most scholarly ef fort. He epoke of the people of Al buquerque as being wide awake, ener getic and enterprising; an inspection of the city piwing this explicitly. The warm hospitality of Albuquerque people was, he said, proverbial and always most cordial and he believed the local bankers had excelled them selves In the manner of entertaining the visiting delegates.
