In opening the convention he stated that not only the territory but tho United States was looking upon the forthcoming fall election as a very im portant one, as the question of state hood was to be decided and he was In favor of Joint statehood.

He stated that he first favored Bingle statehood, with four senators from the two territories, but the congress of the United States and the president thought otherwise,, and It was Joint statehood or nothing, and he was therefore in favor of Jointure.

It will not only be an ornament to this city and Bernalillo county, but also to the entire territory. Let us have our fights among ourselves, but let us all support Congressman Andrews, when he is nominated at Las Vegas for a return to the congress of the United States. Referred to County Affairs. Chairman Hubbell then referred to the conditions in Bernalillo county, and said "there was a fight" among the so-called tactions. He referred to the published call, and stated It ex plicitly says "for the purpose of elect ing delegates to the territorial con vention at Las Vegas." He referred to county analrs, and assured the con vention that the regular republican organization will carry the county by the biggest majorities ever known. On concluding his speech, which was timely and to the point, the chairman called for the call, and It was read by Secretary Nestor Mon toya, Modesto Ortiz acting as Inter preter not only for the reading of the call bi t during the speech of Chair man Iiubbell.

After a strenuous day and night In prellmin ary politics, the New York state democratic convention comes to Its crucial session on the second day with all Indications pointing to the nomination of William R.

NEW PRINCIPAL OF THE UNIT OF CONSTRUCTION Cambridge, Mass., Sept. 2G. Tho formal exercises connected with the dedication of Harvard's new medical school are being held today and sev eral thousand alumni, former mem bers of the faculty, and distinguished members of the learned professions are here to take part i Ho events of the day. Yesterday the buildings of the new school were thrown open to visitors for the first time. Thousands inspected the Interesting structures, which were formally turned over to and accepted by the college author ities. This forenoon the members or tne faculty, students, alumul and many visitors assembled at old Mas sachusetts hall and formed a proces sion, which solemnly marched to Sanders' theatre. The exercises at the theatre began at tleven o'clock with an opening address by President Eliot. Other addresses were delivered by Prof. William H. Welch of Johns Hopkins university and other distin guished visitors. The alumni chorus sang several numbers and then some more addresses followed. In the af ternoon a number of honorary degrees will be conferred by the faculty. At two o'clock an alumni dinner wllll be given at Memorial hall. , After the exercises In Sanders' the ater the president and fellows will receive the delegates of other Institu tions at Phillpps Brooks liouse, and at half past one the procession will be formed for the triennial dinner of the Harvard Medical Alumni asso ciation. Dr. H. L. Richardson will pre side at the dinner and there will be speeches by mnay distinguished guests. An Interesting feature carried out In the new buildings of the medical school, without restriction. Is the de velopment of the "unit" idea In the design of the structure, conferring great -elasticity In providing for new needs or unlooked for problems. The "unit" Is a floor space about 23 feet long by 10 feet wide; each "unit" having a window. By removing one partition a room 23 feet long and 20 feet wide Is made available; or any multiple of 10 feet lengthwise of the building may be thrown into one room by removing partitions enough, 'ine whole system of the buildings Is based on this "unit" system and of fers, it is believed, a mechanical fa cility In method, altogether unique. The Idea has been worke I and teste I largely by Prof. W. T. Parker an ! Prof. C. S. Minot. PRESIDENT PALM A IS IN QUITE A QUANDARY Havana. Sept. 2tl -Cuba today is practically without a government, and the landing of American forces to restore order in the island is be lieved to be the ni'cessary outcome of last night's decision of the govern ing party to abdicate and force the hand of the American peace commis sion, and thus compelling the United States to intervene for the se'eond time in Cuba. The liberals denounce the action of the I'alma administra tion as treason, it is believed hat if the commission should establish tbj liberals in power they would se cure peace in Cuba. President I'ultna stayed in bis pri vate apartments all morning. He permits no opportunity for anyone to Interview him or communicate with him by message. His assistants say tie is deeply grieved at the outcome of the revolution, and there are ru mors that be is reconsidering his de termination to resign. Nothing, how ever, has developed to substantiate the re-port.
