ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, THURSDAY EVENING, AUUUST 9. 1900. NUMBER 192 PHOENIX HASN'T TO DRAW REAL GOOD BREATH Since the Two Central Committees Met There Last Saturday and Showed Joint Statehood Strength. IF SO WITH COMMITTEES, HOW IS, IT WITH THE PEOPLE? This Is Question Astonished Denizens of Capital City Are Asking Each Other As They Gather in Groops on the Streets. Phoenix. Ariz., Aug. 9. Since the meeting of the two territorial central committees here last Saturday, there has been quite a change in the state hood talk one hears upon the streets. Of course, phoenix people are o.-ofuo fr lnsin? ttiR canital. and a very large number of them Bay that j they would rather be the capital ofj fhe territory than to be a second class city lit a state. This feeling is really at the root of much of the opposition to Joint statehood in this section. As it would hardly lo to put tne opposi tion broadly on this grcund. various other reasons are given as the pro fessed basis of opposition; but when one gets down to the foundation of the feeling or hears tne people of the city talking among themselves, he soon realizes that the opposition to Joint statehood is really opposition to loss of the capital. . This feeling does not prevail to any considerable extent in the northern part of the territory, but 11 is very strong In Pnoentx and the territory it dominates. Your correspondent be lieves that if New Mexico had been kept as the name of the ptsposec state and Arizona had retained the capital, there would have been less opposition in this section to Jointure. Even now, if there could be such a thing as a compromise, by which the state would have two capitals, as some cf the eastern states had till MANY EVENTS AT THE CARNVAL CELEBRATION Newport, R.

Hut the change of street talk In Phoenix, about which I first spoke, has nothing to do with this capital question. It. lies altogether in the con fidence with which the assertion was always made that Arizona In Novem ber will bury Joint statehood too deep ever to be reached by Gabriel's horn. The assertion is still made, but the confidence, alas, is woefully lacking. The meeting of the central commit tees was a rough shock to the com mittee men themselves and a perfect paralyzer to the community. Neither can hardly realize it as yet. After all the tall swearing that Arizona is al most a unit against J int statehood, that the vote against jointure will oe at the 1-ast ten to one after all this to find that about 2o per cent of the democratic central committee favors joint statenood and that the best the republican central committee could do was to pass a vote of opposition to jointure by 29 to Is, has left commn. ti es and people alike dumbfounded. The question that all are asking themselves is: If the committees showed so strong a proportion of state hood supporters, hew will it be with 'he people.' The fact is that the meet ing of the two territorial central com mittees in Phoenix has .given a won derful boost to the cause of joint statehood. STANDARDS FOR PORTO RICO SOLDIERS Washington, D. C.

The Ice Trust and the Potter's Field IM mmmmmmmmmm -; !- -w-il l . - i - is1.t 'V Here is a pathetic picture. It was taken in sweltering New York and it might have been taken In al most any city v. here the sun beats down mercilessly and the poor suffer. Viy greed should be so tightly linked with the Ice business Is a mystery. 'Why men, In order to build fortunes, should make prices almost prohibitive when they know that their extortion will cause suffering and death, no man has been able to answer, except that there la little soul In business. You get your Ice box filled three times a week and pay iith a growl. You sny you are being robbed, but you have the money. You can stand It even if you do not like it, and In a helpless sort of way you feel that something should be done. But you are in the minority. You have little knowledge of the millions who live In tenements; who do not have fresh air and green lawns and flowers and hammocks. Why. in the big cities babies die like files In order that men shall make a great deal of money. Ice In the haunts of these who are down Is a luxury, a boon, a joy when it can be obtained. Children in scores follow the ice wagons hoping for the liitle pieces that may fall to the hot pavements. Grown folks, too. beg for the bit of frost that may mean almost life for a child. IT SHOULD NOT BE. The greed of no one should be allowed to interfere with comfortable living. And it IS the function of a city to step In and become an active competitor with private capital In the ice business. There is a moral right to warrant It. Talk about paternal government. "Why not? Must there be ethics in stopping a fever, or In saving lives? It is good to know that there is unrest all over the country; that municipalities are not content to rest with sending a few ice manufacturers to Jail for violation of trust laws, but that in several cities relief Is to be sought In municipal ice plants. In some places work has been started, in others money will be raised and the good work will be prosecuted. Why shouldn't water, frozen, be sold at cost? It is a necessity. The more cities are crowded, the greater need of Ice.

It is a source of especial satisfaction to me to find that the- rilcers ana men of a vessel particularly identified, as is the Dolphin, with the secretary of the navy recognize and act upon this truth.

Preparations are being made for the coming baptism of the emperor's first grandson. Nothing has been decided yet as to who are to act as godfather and godmothers to the baby prince. That thtre will be quite a nunilicr of them is quite cer tain.

King Edward II., then Prince of Wales, Prince and Princess Christian, the emperors of Russia and Austria, the kings of Italy and Belgium and a host of German princes and prin cesses.

HOWEVER, KE DID NOT KEEP PROMISE HE MADE Explained In Full Stensland's Method of Forgery to Get the Bank's Money. Chicago, Aug. 9. Evidence which may lead to the 'prosecution of the di rectors for the responsibility for Pres ident Stensland's $1,003,000 by for gery was among the developments yesterday touchlug the mulcted Mil waukee Avenue bank.

In an interview with the Trib une reporter last nigh. In a city park, it is said, tnat Hering asserted his innocence of wrongdoing, declaring he merely carried out the orders of Stens land.
