ALBUQUERQUE EVEXIXC. CITIZEN,
MONDAY, APRIL 2. 1906. PACE FIVE. (dm fl 0 D D oo-ooc- j Extract from speecb of Hon. Nelll H. Field, nt mass meeting at Colombo H ill. Wednesday night, March 2S, 19 )0. JUDGE ABBOTT GAVE SOME GOOD, WHOLESOME ADVICE When He Dissolved Injunction This Morning, but Appeared Surprised at Figures Showing Over Four Thousand Voters. DEFECTIVE REGISTRATION LAW RESPONSIBLE Judge Abbott this morning dissolv ed the temporary injunction brought late Saturday afternoon last to pre vent the city board of registration from delivering to the city clerk, reg istration lists for the ensuing city election. The court in its comments on the case, after two hours of argument, .ordered the city clerk to produce and hold open for Inspection any matters of public record with reference to the said registration lists, and in Ibis or- . ler the plaintiffs in the case claim a victory. According t the attorneys for the plaintiffs, they were unable to get lists of registration In two wards and In no ward could they pro cure copies of certified lists, which the defendants In the case acknowl edged as facts. It developed that the' various bo&rdB, through ignorance of duties of the offices -which they held, "had failed to certify to the registra tion lists. The plaintiffs, Dr. George W. Har rison and Dr. L. H. Chamberlin, were represented by Attorneys Klock & Owen, and the defendants, the boards of registration, were represented by Attorneys A. B. McMillen, Summers Burkhardt and City Attorney M. E. Hickey. "I'm going to assume that you would all like to have a fair election," were Jndpo Abhott'n rmenltiir words. "I'm Avflrtt thnf tho Inn- lmnrlnp on rpcts-l tratlon is very faulty, defective, and should be changed, for It is quite ob .vlous tliat the registration list, under such a law, is an invitation to com mit fraud through illegal voting. "I SHOULDN'T JUDGE THAT EITHER OF YOU WOULD DESIRE TO PREVENT THE APPROACHING ELECTION, AND I RECOMMEND THAT THE COUNCIL GET TO GETHER ON THE MATTER. "THERE CAN HARDLY BE 4,300 VOTERS IN A CITY OF 11,000 POP ULATION." Attorney Klock stated in the open-, ing, in answer to the court's request as to what tbe plaintiffs would desire,' that the purpose was to have the llsrs purged; that they had been padded, ane! contained names or non-resiuents, women nna ennaren, registered as voters; that the registration lists were not made by the boards and that the law did not contemplate that typewritten pages should be inserted as lists of registration. Attorney McMillen objected to Mr. Klock pleading-his case at that time.' "I ask Mr. Klock for a statement," said Mr. McMillen. I "I suggest then, just as I lie court! has suggested," answered Attorney Klock, "t.hat the boards get together today and purge the lists. If Mr. Mat son knows that a man lives north i of Mountain road, I'm willing and would trust that he would strike bis name from the list, should it appear I thpro I frtol nnflrtint ttiti it Mr Cushman should find that there were twenty-nine names, employes of the Alvarado hotel, on the list, bo would question their legality as voters. "The boards 'will admit," continued Mr. Klock, "that tbe census lists were pasted in the registration broks." A question arose alout just bow many names appeared on the lists as they were ready to he filed with the city clerk. Attorney Klock said that lie had been informed that there were 4.700. At this point Attorney McMillen stated that the lists carried all told, 4,300 names. It was at this time that Judge Ab bott suggested that there were some thing radically wrong with the lists. "THERE CAN'T BE 4,300 VOTERS IN A CITY OF 11,000 POPULATION," were his words. Attorney McMillen conceded that there were probably some defects in the registration lists, but he saw no wav to remedy the matter now, ac cording to the law governing regis- nations. I Attorney Burkhart stated that ne had intended to make the same pro- lr,any others. list male by the plaintiffs, in bring-j Sunday afternoon will be devoted o ing the Injunction action, and that;tne women delegates and mission work by canvassers from the city : teachers, and the meeting will be in democratic central committee had ehanre of Mesdamcs J. H. Heald and been accomplished in two wards, lult the work had been stopped by the adaption by ! th parties on a hisiom; ticket, which, 'he thought, would do away with nny s-'rite in the eKctlonj and make fraud of little Incentive.! For this reason be did not have a canvas made of the whole city, and; for the same reason did not make; the protest contemplated. Mr. Hurk hat t said t hat he saw a canvass mad.' of the Third ward, containing 1,'MHj names, and that In knew that there were duplicates on it. AGAIN JUDGE ABBOTT SUG-. GESTED THAT COUNSEL GET TO GETHER. Attorney McMillen Interfered to an offer made by the plaintiffs to allow the registration lists to be revised by the boards to the best of their knowl edge, saying the six days for such re vision bad passed, and according to law the plaintiffs were in default. SO IS EVERY GOOD CITIZEN IN default; rejoinder. "I bclb vf. it would be prevent a 1 was the court's quick said Judge Abbott, 'that as gnat an injustice to al voter from v ting as U WOald I: for an illegal vo'cr to vote. If there are on the list 1 "'"i or more names of Illegal voters, it would ! difficult to w.ed them all out in so short a time." It was at this point that Mr. McMil len acknowledged that the lists had not been certified io. ace-rding to law, and that there might, be other irreg ularltles, but it was now too late to remedy the wrong, other than at th polls, where the Illegal voters could be challenged, if questioned. There was a hot exchange of words between Attorneys Klock and McMil len, when the court asked If either of them would like the election pre vented. "NO, WE DO NOT," said Attorney McMillen, 'neither do tbe plaintiffs ONE OF THEM 13 A CANDIDATE FOR OFFICE." "WE WILL TAKE THE COURT'S SUGGESTION. SO WILL MR. BURK HART. I HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF CONFIDENCE IN HIS INTEGRITY, WHEN IT COMES TO SUFFRAGE," said Attorney Klock, There was another hot passage at words by McMillen and Klock, the latter concluding with, "but there are er gentlemen peculiarly interested. who object to following out the court's suggestion." Attorney Klcck then produced, for the information of the court, the books from the First ward, and exhibited a few samples of registration. Here Is one sample: "Mexican, ne'arly opposite woolen mill." Just the abbreviation of "Mr." ap pearing before sir names occur fre quently on every ward bor.k of the city. , The court bad begun to pass on the question "(it is important that both sides be fair"), when Attorney Klock I interposed, wun: u appears mm xney don't -want to be fair." i This precipitated another hot exchange of words. Attorney Klock said that he registered himself. Burkhart said that he went to regis ter his name and found it on tbe cen sus rill. The court then finished its decision In the case, informing the clerk that ,the registration lists as made affida- vit to, were of public record, aDd should be turned over at the clerk's office for the inspection of whoso ! ever tnav choose to see them. The plaintiffs consented, claiming that they desired nothing more than wilat the court had granted them, A mlmber of witnesses had been sunpoenaed to testify as to the meth 0(ls llsei ny the registration canvass Prs in collect nz names, but it was quite obvious that the lists bad been padded and their testimony was not needed. f.EW MEXICO ASSOCIATION OF CONGREGATIONAL CHURCHES AND MISSION TEACHERS MEET IN THIS CITY NEXT WEEK. Friday, Saturday and Sunday of mxt week the New Mexico Associa tion of Congregational Churches and Mission Teachers will meet in this city fur the purinise of discussing the general topic, "1 ho School and the church." and for the transaction of such other business as may come be fore the association. I la:s are being made for the recep tion and entertainment of a large num ber of Congregational church work ers, clergymen and mission teachers from all parts of the territory. Mrs. J. H. Heald, SOS North Grand avenue, his in charge the arrangements for the entertainment of mission teachers and delegates, and she has already re ceived sufficient Inquiries for enter tainment from delegates throughout New Mexico to feel assured In saying that this session of the association will be one of the most largely at tended held In recent years. An extensive and interesting pro gram has been arranged for the three days of the association, among some cf the prominent speakers and clergy men who will deliver addresses or sermons, being Hev. Dr. Warren F. Day, Pastor Emeritus of the First Congregational church of I,os An geles, Cal.; Rev. Dr. Charles H. Small, of Cleveland, Ohio; Prof. J. E.

Tight, of miversltv of New Mexico, and l'orteifield Among the features of the program, as arranged, is the dedication of the Congregational church's new pipe or gan, which service will take place Sun" day morning. LOST CHILD IS RE- STORED TO PARENTS She was a little girl, perhaps 3 ( ars of age, with a bright, piquant face, and n sunshiny smile, and when she .11! ing, led. m rolled unconcernedly into No. North Second street, this morn the occupants were visibly start- -Me id losted," baby way. she lisped. In her "You are?" was asked "And where do vim live?" This was too much for the little tot. and she made it plain that if t-he knew where she lived she would not be "I sted." The police were called in and it was sexm found that the child belonged to a family living in block j'") on West Lead avenue, to whom she was promptly restored. How she came, to wander so far from home was not as certained. Kvery indication points to one of the liveliest city elections tomorrow, in tho history of Albuquerque. The tax payers of this city are aroused, ami they do not intend to U- bambo.zled into voting for a water system, whidh Attoi-my Field say, "Is a gold brick." SOME POINTERS FOR THE VOTERS Who Do Not Know a "Thing or Two" Relative to the Water Bond Proposition. SHORT PARAGRAPHS TO THE POINT ; Do not overlook voting in favor of bonds for the new city ball. The citizens' non-partisan party ticket will win in every ward tomor row: but the water .bond will l tie- feated by an overwhelming vole. What Is meant by the Mornlnar Kal- amein Kalllope? this has reference to the water works organ; sometimes known as the Morning Journal. Read your ballots carefully tomor- row, and see that "against," in liold faced type, appears Just alxve tbe water works proposition. The city council should force the Water Sunnlv comnanv tn comnlvwlth Its contract, or. In view of refusal and unnecessary delays, forfeit its fran chise. Crocodile tears for Alderman Gillen-water-Macpherson syndicate, who are trying to unload an Inadequate water system on the city. Their scheme will not work. In Its anxiety to advance April Fool's day, the water organ cannot fool anybody In its tirade against hon orable citizens who oppose its scheme to unload the water plant on the tax payers of tbe city. A mass meeting will be held at Co lombo hall tonight and Hon. George W. Klock, Hon E. V. Chaves and oth ers, will address the people in oppo sition to the purchase of the water works at this time, by the citv, for $250,no(. Chairman Browne, of the central committee of the Citizens' Non-Partisan party ticket, stated today that It was bis opinion that every man of that ticket would be elected, but when asked for a prediction on the water bonds proposition, he winked and said: "Qulen sabe." The Gillenwater. Macpherson water machine are the greatest "card writ era" in the southwest, and it is al leged, several signers of recent "finan cial (?) statements" in the Momlng Kalamein Kalllope put their names thoj-ecn Just "to be pleasant," while they will cast their ballots against Uie Issuance of bonds to purchase the water works. "If you don't vote for us," said an emissary of the Gillen water-Macpher-son water machine, "we will raise your water rates, should tbe water bonds be defeated." Such bulldozing work ed a few years ago, hut the native tax payers have been taught a lesson since then, and they will, almost to a man, vote against the water bonds pro-iosl-tion, which will Increase their taxes, should the bonds carry. Instead of de creasing them. In about four years $7o,0ch) of the bonded indebtedness of the Water Supply company will become due, and the principal, with interest at 6 per cent, must be paid. Here's one of the principal reasons why the Water company and the water organ the Morning Kalamien Kalllope are so anxious to sell the old plant to the city for the outrageous price of $250, ioo. Voters, therefore, don't be de ceived, but see to It that your water bond ballot reads "against." and keep your eyes open for fraudulent voters. The fact must not be overlooked that in 1910, (four years hence), $75, 000 of the bonded Indebtedness or the Water Supply company becomes due, and these bonds, with Interest at G per cent, must be paid. Voters, don't forget this big debt, and here's a rea son why the Water company desires to sell. In l!tl2. it Is understood, $110,000 of the bonded IndeUedness of the Water company will also lie conie due, and here's another reason for the great anxiety manifested by the Morning Kalamein Kalllope In selling the water works to the city just at this time. Emissaries from the (liHenwater Macpherson syndicate are attempting to cot rce the small native property holders in the First, Second and Third wards, to vote for the water bonds, by telling them that if they oppose tlie bonds, and it is defeated at the polls, the Water company will order all their wells closed anil force them to take water at increased rates, from the company. To the natives: Be independent and don't pay any atten tion to such talk; it. comes from bull dozers, wb , if you go alter themwitti a slick, they will break their necks getting away from you. Vote against the water Ixmds.

DOWN STAIRS TO HIS DEATH Herbert Day Plunges Head-i long to Basement in the Zeiger Cafe. FRACTURED SKULL THE' RESULT Because be mistook the door lend ing to the basement below for tbe door leading into , the toilet room, Herbert Day, a blacksmith, about 30 years old, who had lieen employed by J. Korber & Co., tho past two weeks as a blacksmith and horseshoer, plunged down a pair of dark stairs in the Zeiger cafe Saturday night be tween 11:30 and 12 o'clock, a distance of ubout fifteen feet, landing on his head on the cement floor of the base nient, fracturing his skull, from the effects of -which he died in St. Jo seph's hospital Sunday morning about 7 o'clock. Day and a friend named Miller, had been working in the blacksmith de partment of J. Korber & Co., fer the past two weeks. Both were known as thoroughly competent men. Satur day night both drew their pay and re signed their positions, stating that they Intended returning to Denver, from which place Day had come two weeks ago. After taking several drinks 1u different saloons Millor asked hi friend It it wouldn't be a good idea to purchase their tickets at once, before they had spent all their money. Acting on this advice. Day gave Miller the money with which to purchase 'tickets to Denver. Later, both returned to the Zeiger cafe, and with friends, were drinking and en Joying themselves up to 11: 30 o'clock. At about that hour Day arose from tho table at whichi the party were seated, and Btated tbat he was go ing t; the toilet room to wash his hands. Ho left them and proceeded to the rear of the cafe. His friends paid no more attention to him, until a few moments later, when, not having appeared, one of the party, Walter Lukens, employed by the Whitney company, slated that he was going to see what had become of Day. Lu-i km went to the wash room, but Day! was not mere. Next t the door lead ing Into the toilet room is a door of similar pattern, which leads to the basement below. Thinking that per haps Day had mistaken the doors, L.U keus opened this door, and giunclug into the semi-darkness of the base ment below, made out a huddled form lying at the foot of the flight of stairs. Calling his friends, Lukens went Into the basement and found Day lying un conscious, with a slight trickle of blood flowing from a fracture iu the hack of his skull. He was at once removed to a room of a friend of the parties, named ! Eckels, who rooms in the Grant block, whe're he was put to bed, bis friends not thinking that, he was seriously, hurt, but laboring under the Impres sion that Day was merely Intoxicated. Several of Day's friends' remained with him until nlxut 3:30 o'clock in tho morning, when, noticing thnt he was still breathing very beavily and that all efforts to rouse 'him proved unavailing. Dr. W.vlder was called and immediately ordered the injured man removed to the 'hospital, saying that I his skull was fractured. When the hospital was reached an ; operation was performed upon the Ui ! jured man, but a piece of bone, press j ing upon his brain, bad already set j the seal of death upon him, and a ! few moments later, about 7 el en, I he died, without ever having regained consciousness after 'h!s full. His friend Miller, not thinking that Day was very seriously injured, had in tbe meantime, boarded the train for Denver, stating that he would ex pect Day to follow on the next train. The remains We re removed to Bor ders' undertaking establishment yes terday morning. In the meantime, a friend of Day's had called fit. the lo cal ticket office and had tho man's ticket to Denver redeemed, which amount, together with wbat little Day had left In his iKtckct at the time of the accident, amounted to $23.20. I Day's friend, Miller, was notified by i wire at Trinidad, of Day a deat h, as a!.-u was Secretary Kenehan of the j Denver Blacksmith's union, of which j Day was a member in good standing. J It was ascertain' d today that Day j hail relatives living in Illinois, the I mother cf tile unfor'unato man being Ja resident of that Mate, but Just where, however, could not lo learn ed.
