(By Gilson Gardner.) Special Correspondence. Washington, Dec. 17. President Roosevelt last Monday received the Nobel rlro lor his services In pro moting pcaco. The Nobel prize is one of the world's rct louois. conferred f ir greatest world service, and the eocnuy is C.bt tuirhcd that claims as ft tl:in t i e ot t'.io rtelplenU of the prise. m , 1 prlte came la the form of tV R)0 in cash and President Roosevelt determined to make a present of the money U the people of the United States, to be devoted to the cause or iadnetrial peace. He believes that this money cannot be better used than in the labor of bringiag about better relations be tween employer and employed. To this esd the fund will be placed In the hands of trustees and the income will be used perpetually for this pur pose. The Nobel prize comes to the presi dent ia recognizition of his aarvlces in bringing about peace between Rus sia and Japan. This accomplishment is regarded by the Nobel trustees as the greatest promotion of world peace during the past decade. The president feels the keenest ap preciation of the high honor accord ed him In making Mm the recipient of this prise, but he la disinclined to profit financially by his labors In this behalf. He feels very much as a mat would feel who, having saved the life of a child, was ofTcred $720 for Ills labor. Hence he has cast about to find the best way to use the money in promotion of the end for which the original foundation waa made. It is the president's plan to put the money in tho hands of trustees, and he has about decided to appoint as trustees Chief Justice Fuller, Sec retary of Agriculture Wilson and Secretary of Commerce and Labor Strauss. These trustees will Invest the fund in safe securities and de vote the Interest annually to the pro motion of Industrial peace In accord ance with the following plan: The president will select two men, representing respectively labor and capital Interests. It will be tholr duty to promote industrial peace In whatever way, by arbitration or other wise, that they are able to devise, and to do all possilile to bring about lasting harmony between the warring Interests in the Industrial world. One of these peace promoters will be John Mitchell, of the coal miners' organization, and the other will be some man in the capitalistic woriu who has mado himself conspicuous hv his fair dealing and the confidence which ho commands at the hands of tha employ ed as well as the em ploying class. These two men will servo for n year, at the end of which time It will-be their duty to select two more men, one from the employer and the other from the employed classes, on the basis of some conspicuous ac complishment in the way of bringing about more harmonious relations dur ing the year then ended. Theso two men will each be pre sented with a bronze medal, the de- JOHN MITCHELL.

This committee of four will ,at the end of another year, choose two other modal men. so that at tho end of three years there will lie a committee of six. The first two men appointed will resign at the end of the third year and each of the other committee men will do the same at the end of a three-year period of service. Thus each year there will be select ed two new members, honored by the presentation of two bronze medals, and each year two members of the Nobel peace commission will drop out so that there will always be a stand ing committee of six. President Roosevelt has no hard and fast notions as to how the ad ministrators of his Nobel fund shall proceed in working, for Industrial I peace. Everything will be judged by results. Theories are excellent, but until they have been tested they will probably not entitle their authors to any participation in the honors of this endowment. On the other hand, men like John Mitchell, or forinr Senator (Jray, of Delaware, who actually do tilings in the way of settling strikes or insur ing Industrial peace, will receive recognition. 0;i of the purposes of the fund is to Inspire greater en deavor among those line3.

Tu Question of separate statehood for New Mexico Is being agitated In the national capital and in local cir cles and separate statehood for the territory la training ground. The fol lowing recent dispatch from the Washington correspondent of tho New York Commercial shown which way tho wind blows: "The question of statehood for New Mexico and Arizona in again be ginning to worry the congressional mind tut there Is small chance that it will so far agitate the statesmen na to Ret action in the near future, lmt aof sloa of congress provided that New Mexico and Arizona should be admitted an a joint state if each woHld cast a majority of votes for the propoHal. Ntw Mexico did; Ari sen did not. So neither can become a Btite, ajid the two together cannot. "Now it develops that the sixty-six delegate elected from New Mexico will weot, despite tho failure of the statliood proposal prepare a constitu tion, and present to congress a pe tition for admission to the union by itaolf. it will be urged that New Mexico linn always stood for state hood on any basis it was obtainable. It waa for Joint statehood when con gress favored that plan now it asks separato statehood. "If New Mexico should bo taken in a a separate state, is would prob aMy bo many years before Arizona wouli l:ao the population and de velopment to entitle it to entrance. Hut It in suggested now to b t New Mexico come in by itself, and to per mit Arizona to be annexed to Ne vada. This would not be open to tho objections which Arizona people made to jolnturo with New Mexico. The chief objection to a partnership with Now Moxico was that there were so many Hpanit-h and Mexicans in Now Mejclca, while the Arizonans are chiefly original Americans. They would mix will wi'h the peop'e of Nevada, howi v. r, together they would prove a fa r populat'on to justify a state; and altogether the pi. in has considered" to recommend it "Considerable interest has l:ite!y l.een taken in this new phase .f the ilisciH-'u!n " FIRM BELIEVER IN THE VALLEY'S FUTURE TERRITORIAL BOARD OF E A.

Pratt of Carlsbad was here yesterday ea route home nftr a visit to Santa Fe. Mr. Pratt, who Is chair man of the territorial irrigation board, is a firm believer in tho fu ture of the Pecos valley 2d partic ularly Carlsbad, which, he declared. Is growing steadily. "The Pecos valley before many years will be the- leading portion of New Mexico," said Mr. Pratt. "The Avalon dam will be built to stay this llmo and tUe engineers are now de voting their attention to strength! n ing the work and have thoroughly re constructed the ditch system. The farmers, who are dependent upon this dani for their water supply, have been very fortunate during the past two years because there has been good nila falls and plenty of snow and the fruit trees have not stiff. ml to any extent. "Many new people are arriving at Carlsbad to make their homes and the Public Utility company is putting in a fine water system for the city. When the new system will have been Installed there will be plenty of water for dotmstie purposes at small cost."
