Spncial to The Evening Citizen.
Washington, 13. C April 19.
It was officially stated at the
White House today that Captain
(Seoree Curry, newly appointed
governor of New Mexico, could
not assume the duties o his of-
flee for at least three months. 4
An order. Instructing Hon. J.
W. Itaynolds. territorial secre-
tary, to Jill the office in the In-
torim,, was at once Issued and
is now being transmitted to San-
ta Fe hy mail. Governor Curry
is well known by the president
ami stands very high In his fa-
vnr as well as in New Mexico. 4
The president believes he will
be acceptable to the people hucI 4
has received messages endorsing 4
his action from New Mexico. 4
The principal charges, thus far 4
made public, against the de- 4
posed governor are: That he dis- 4
rupted the republican party In
New Mexico instead of promot-
ing hartnony; that ho transfer-
red territorial lands to a cor- 4
poratlon contrary to law; that 4
the people of New Mexico did
not relish his administration of
affairs and that the legislative
assembly was hostile to his 4
method of procedure. Delegate t
Andrews had several lengthy
conferences with the president
before any action was taken in 4
the matter of removing the
governor and the president was 4
informed in detail of the true 4
situation In New Mexico, politi- 4
Oat ajid otherwise. He asked 4
for and secured Information from
nil sides concerned.

4 Santa Fe, N. M.. April 19. J.
W. Itaynolds, territorial secre-
tary, has not yet taken charge of 4
the affairs of the governor's office 4
in pursuance with the plans of
the president, as announced 4
through the press yesterday. 4
4 His f.uhire to do so results from 4
4 the fact that he has not yet been 4
4 officially notified of the removal
of H. J. Hagerman, and of his
added duties. He is, however,
nominally the governor, acting In 4
that capacity during the ah-
senee of Hagerman from terri-
tiiri.il soil.
Mi Mit r n iii
Prom ,t)I over New Mexico. The
Vizeri today received messages from
prominent republicans, taxpayers,
business men and others, approving
of tile removal from office of Herbert
.1. Hagerman, and the appointment
In his stead of Captain George Curry,
present governor of Saniar province,
Philippine Islands.
Sentiment on every hand, instead
of condemning President Koosevelt,
is increased greatly in his favor.
Hardly a. county in the territory has
not had some grievance against the
wavering administration of Hager
man and there has not been one pre
cinct heard from thus far that does
not predict for the new executive
Captain Curry, the greatest of suc
cess in the conduct of the office to
which he has been appointed. The
unpopularity of llagerman and the
lank injustice of most of his official
arts, aru now making themselves
manifested on all sides. F.ven from
the Pecos valley, democratic to a
ureal extent and supposedly a Ha
Herman stronghold, come messages
f praise, for the action of the presi
dent in removing Hagerman.
Captain Curry Very Popular.
Captain Curry is very popular
among his old friends in the south
west and the general feeling is that
'ie will bring to his task, an intimate
knowledge of conditions here, of the
people with whom he must ileal and
of the policies and principles of the
republican party.
The native people of New Mexico,
ihose of Spanish descent, welcome
Hie apolntmeut of Curry unanimous
ly. They now feel that they will be
tuken again into consideration as
they always have been by former re
publican administrations and as they
should be.
Capital City Pleased at Removal. i
At Santa Fe, where Governor Ha-1
German has a residence, and where I
liis ofrii UI ai ts were subjected to j
i loser scrutiny than in any other por- j
tion of the territory, owing to the
tut that facilities there were better
for so doing, the sentiment Is pruc- j
iically unanimous in the endorsement,
the president's action. The news. I
while expected, came so suddenly that
n created considerable more interest
than under ordinary circumstances. ;
I was believed in Sahts that the
governor would be r " wed to return
..i the capital before being retired.
It is not knon whether or not he ,
xpi-(ls) t ) remain long in Santa Fe !
but the probabilities are that he will
(Urn there Monday In order to turn
over the offieu to the territorial scc-i-tury
!i:id to adjust his personal af-
r .urs. It is believed that he will then;
ive New Mexico, as it is understood.
Mr. Hagerman does not particularly,
iike the southwest .is a place of resi
'i!e. There i. a report in Santa Fe
i a it th- former governor has received
in ulT'or of a place In the diplomatic
tvii'i. which he left to come to New
el. u o as cmri .or. The report can

lint Home of his Washington '
'" 't ill ..fffei -I !f... a-. rvi!l2 '
to cover up his failure in New Mexico
and heal his wounded pride by an ef
fort to place him again In office in
other quarters. His record, however,
Is against him and they are meeting
with difliculty.
Sooorro Celebrated the Etrnt.
At Socorro last evening, there was
a mass meeting of citizens, and a big
jollification rally was held. Several
hundred dollars was raised yesterday
afternoon, as soon as the news of
Hagerman's removal was received and
It was expended in a public expres
sion by the cltistens, of their appre
ciation of the president's action In
removing Hagerman and appointing
Captain Curry.
At Las Vegas, the removal of Gov
ernor Hagerman met with popular
approval and there was a general
feeling that the appointment of Cap
tain Curry would do much to ut once
repair the damage wrought bv the
former administration.
A number ot other places reported
similar feeling among the residents
and the expression of the highest
confidence In the ability and the
"square deal" of the new executive.
Only Little Danny Wept.
Contrary to the statements of the
morning paper, Albuquerque was not
thrown Into mourning at the news of
the removal of the boy executive.
Huslness seemed to Jog along in about
the same old way and there were not
many tears shed outside of the Mac
pherson fake reform crowd, every one
of whom hnd a right to cry long and
loud. There was no disposition to
treat the ousting of Hagerman as a
national calamity except by the morn
ing paper, to which the attnir as
sumed that magnitude. The appoint
ment of Captain Curry as governor of
New Mexico, was received with uni
versal approval by the citizens of Al
buquerque particularly among the
older residents who knew him well.
The general impression here is that
he will first and foremost he the gov
ernor. I). A. Macpherson, etc., to the
contrary notwithstanding; that he
will do his own thinking, conduct a
republican administration and give
the people a "square deal." A few
months under such a regime, will
quickly show the few doubters what
Hagerman Was not.
That the news of the executive's
removal was of great Interest was
shown hy the fact that The Kvening
Citizen, which handled the story
more fully than any paper In .,cw
Mexico, could not supply tne demand
for copies. An extra number of pa
pers in excess of the usual amount,
were Published but tht n oi..
was sold out by 7 o'clock and the
people who continued to come to The
Citizen office until after 10 o'clock
ut night were disappointed.

Medford. Mass., April 19. Al
though nearly fifty years of age,
Peter W. Foley, of this city, will
compete in the Marathon race to
dsi yat Jloston. Foley, who is a mem
ber of the P.. A. A., is an all-round
athlete. For the last three years he
has started in the Marathon race, and
although he never won he always
finished strongly. His appearance on
tile road from Ashland to iioston on
these occasions has always created
ns much interest ami enthusiasm as
that of the winner. All along the
lines he is greeted with cheers.
While the "old mini," us he is com
monly called in New Kngland. is not
a sprinter, he is a plodder who has
never been known to quit. Many
times his stamina, has enabled him to
beat out opponents who were less
than half his age. Last year he rln
ivhed among the first thirty, and two
years ago he came In Hind. In that
race it took him 3 hours, 27 minutes,
fi 1-5 seconds to traverse the course.
He has always remained an amateur,
notwithstanding he has had many of
fers to become a professional.
