TRUTH CRUSHED TO EARTH WILL RISE AGAIN The removal of Herbert J. Hagerman, buy gov ernor, from the executive chair of New Mexico, has mmle certain the unity and supremacy of the republican party In New Mexico. The appointment of Captaia Uvorge Curry, man of the west, a soldier, a diplomat , and an untarnished gentleman, to .succeed Hagerman meets with universal approval from the people of thu territory. The only regret outsld-i of a few a very few who h:il personal Interest! nt .tnk., is the fact 4hal une of the greatest presidents the country has ever had was placed In the embarrassing position of remov ing from office one of his own appointees, who had been tried and had been found wanting. Political chicanery there was irot. The facts, both from Hagerman'3 , standpoint and from the views of the people of the ter ritory, were laid before the president. He knew them In detail and he acted quickly in his usual fearless uiid Impartial nunner. The w..manlh attempt on the part of the antl-re- "publican morning paper, whose only desire was to be tray the territory into democratic hands, to give th'.! u Impression that the president, a man of Koosevell's great mental calibre, had been deceived. Is laughable. The morning paper stultifies ltsetf at every turn. It makes the statement that nine out of ten people in Al liuiueriue are today in mourning over the removal from office of Hagerman. It is true that owing to the per sonal Interests of the Macpherson crowd there is per hajis more Hagerman advocates in Albuquerque than lu any other portion of New Mexico, but the percentage is not as large as the morning paper would have the peo ple believe. The situation under Hagerman's regime has been a strange one, even In politics, where nothing Is strange. The people of this vicinity have been the victims of : false sentiment, created and fostered by the mornlns paper in furtherance of Its plans to destroy republican ism in New Mexico and secure for itself and Its friend personal benefits at the expense of the territory. Noth ing Illustrates the point better than the fact that there Is no one man of prominence who stood with Hager man who has not been rewarded with a fat public olllce, without regard to ntness or capability. A large per centage of thefe men were either out and out demo crats, or at least strenuously opposed to republican principles. Circumstances played into the hands of the morn ing paper and the Macpherson crowd. The republican leaders and the republican papers were brought face to face with an open rupture in the republican party, which would mean nothing more nor less than Its de struction if they openly opposed Hagerman and at tacked his democratic methods of doing things. It must be remembered that he was appointed by Presi dent RoosevelV a hero of republicanism, who sent him to New Mexico with Instructions to bring all party ele ments Into one fold and make unity the keynote of his administration. The party leaders and the republican papers welcomed him to the territory and stood ready to Unite under him to that end. Hagerman did not know men; he did not know the southwest. Although claiming a home In New Mexico, he dlJ not realize his duty to the territory, to the peo ple and to the republican party. His first official acts were the removal without cause o strong, upright re publicans from office and the substitution In most '. cases of men who had no conception of republican principles or of the wants and needs of the people of ; the southwest. He Ignored almost entirely the great f native element of this territory, which resented hla ac- ! tlons by uniting against him in a body. The mornlns j paper saw a possible chance to destroy the republican I party, and in conjunction with Hagerman, dictate the j policies of New Mexico. It forced Its support upon him i and lie reil into me trap. i ne governor, in a niB" j handed manner, refused the counsels and pleas of th' republican leaders of Xew Mexico. He used the morn I ing paper and several subsidary democratic sheets t ! conduct a campaign of vllliflcation and slander, in ;. which no one was spared who dared to differ from hi J views. The republican leuders saw that it meant but one thing the speedy disruption of the party. They held themselves In check, and likewise the republican papers of the territory. These men, who have built up year tiy year the republican party in New Mexico, sacrificed personal character and even permitted their Integrity to be questioned, without reply, because they knew that o defend themeselves they would have to precipitato a jiolitical fight which would mean the destruction ii their party. All this Hagerman saw and knew. He ' cotinued to persecute through the Albuquerque morn ing paper. In which It was even said he and his friend. were financially Interested, these party leaders who had iiorne the brunt of many a political battle In this terri tory when Herbert J. Hagerman was an Infant In arms. . They stood the most bitter and malicious attacks and political persecution at the hands of the stripling boy governor, who aspired tu lead a political organization of his own, rather than ruin the grand old party t which the territory owes such a debt of gratitude. Hagerman mistook their motives for the confe.-.- hlniis of guilt and cowardice at least so he tried to make It appear through the unprincipled paper he dominated. It is not to be wondered at that some read ers fell victims to the slander and libels of that paper, when the republican papers remained as silent as did the men accused, and allowed themselves to weave a little halo about the head of tho box executive. Macpherson and his gang were not deceived. They were wide awake and knew the situation thoroughly. Hy carefully and artfully playing to the aspirations of Hagerman, they enmeshed him so thoroughly In their net that when the legislature convened he could do no less than obey their biddings. He did it to his sorrow The morning pajier, when It saw that its plans to de etroy the republican party in the territory were on the eve of a disastrous fiasco, made the one last false step of the many to Its credit. It openly and bitterly at tacked President Hoosevelt editorially and otherwise. The gleeful democratic organs It subsidized followed Its 1 lead. They were In the clear. The morning paper, masquerading under the guise of republican reform, ex posed Itself and burned the last bridgo of retreat. It committed the unpardonable error of attacking the In tegrlty, the sagacity, the honor of President Hoosevelt the greatest reformer the republican parly lias ever known, and a man whom tho people are now trying to force Into breaking the most sacred precedent of our presidents, by the acceptance of a third term in ottlce The republicans the people of New Mexico gen crally will believe much, but when an unli-republican paper of the stripe of tho Morning Journal boldly hh wrU that, the great Theodore Hoosevelt is a buying trading, politician ,a fool and a. dupe, their credulity has reached the limit. Following upon this foul attempt to discredit Theo dole Hoosevelt with the people of New Mexico, the morning paper then tries to gather iU shattered van guard for a last stand by Insinuating that tho presi dent, in thu appointment of Captain Curry, has chosen a man who will come to New Mexico and cater to the underhand attempt to betray the republican party in augm-ited by governor Hagerman and a few fake re former, dnild there be anything more quixotic? Captain Curry, whatever else tie may undertake aa - governor ()f N w Mexico, will be first and foremost an exponent of the president's "square deal" which th morning paper has called Into question. He will be republican and he will be ft governor. That Is all the republicans of New Mexico ever asked for nt the hand of President Hoosevelt, and In his wisdom, his Justice and his knowledge of the crying needs of New Mexico he has Riven them Captain tleorge Curry. There is no reason to. longer continue the silence which the republican leaders and tho republican press, out of parly loyalty, have maintained. The people will now learn the truth those who do not already know it and there will henceforth be nn end to the childish prattling of the morning paper and the Mac pherson gang about reform, of which they know not the meaning. The republican party has Just passed one of the greatest crises In the history of New Mexico, and the people of the territory are to be congratulated that they have at the helm, of the nation a man who Is fearless, conscientious and just enough to save the situation by pmmpt and decisive action in the removal of Herbert J. Hagerman. the wavering boy executive, and the ap pointment of a man who has proven on the battlefield and in private life that he is capable of thinking for hi in self. The republican leaders and t lie republican press felicitate the party and the people upon the appoint ment to the office of governor, Captain Ceorge Curry, and the removal of Herbert J. Hngermnn.

We ilo not like these words. They (ill us with ap prehension, for our country, ourselves and those who are dependent upon us. In unother part of The Evening Citizen will be found the opinions of a number of America's repre sentative captulns of industry. Some have fear for the commercial future of the nation, but a majority see on the horizon no low foreboding clouds. It is interesting and Instructive to note that with possibly one exception the alarmists are those whose interests lie mainly under the beetling crags of Wall street. Out of the west, Trom New Kngland, from the fast-growing south, come words of cheer. Then are no hard tlmeis where wheels are grinding; tilery are no hard times In the busy marts of trade. It is only from the cavern of Wall street that there comes a cry. Yet despite the fact that for weeks t lie bottom has threatened to drop out of tho security market, business has steadily increased throughout the nation. It seems incongrous but it Is not. The explanation Is a simple one. So long as high finance rules Wall street, so long ns the chief execu tive must attack financial iniquity, so long will the Investing public remain suspicious and feverish un rest may be expected in the security market. Hard timers what a spectre! Human suffering, gaunt want,' no loof, no clothes to cover, no food a reversal of tho happiest order ol things the Ameri can people have ever known. We do not believe this danger is imminent. Wc do believe that we are moving onward and upward, and gradually" approaching a system of government wherein, by the will of God, we can live nearer to the idealistic pursuit of a square deal and happiness. There la no doubt that the danger signal Is up In Wall street, but let Wall street take warning that we can not be frightened . by Its clamor, nor shall we accept il as a warning to honest tradesmen It is only "Wolf!

The judges who refused to admit the south's grout lilerary artist to the hall of fame, while making placd for many men of less genius, have offered no excuse for their action. Perhaps they realize there is none to be offered. If they barred Poe through Ignorance! or his standing in the world of letters, quite naturally they will not make known the fact of their own lack of wisdom. If they barred the poet through prejudice against his personality, they have even better reasons for keeping quiet. Rut their action has created as tonishment in the many lands where Poe's genius has penetrated, and has robbed the hull of fame of an;: real meaning. Until Poe gets his rightful place in tin: temple, It will be merely a hull of mediocrity. It is astounding that Poe's one weakness drink has been such a stumbling block to his recognition. He was not vicious, and did not harm others when i t drink. He was courageous in days of poverty, and did Titanic work against tremendous odds. Hut his hign courage counts for nothing as against one weakness that lias beset tens of thousands of oilier men. Your Scotchman-llnds quick excuse for the same frailly in hi- beloved Bobby Hums, but the American has not been so charitable In the case of Poe. Hut fortunately false Impression, like a. downright lie, cannot lie lon,;- lived. Poe's art is taking its rightful nlu.ee. ;.n.l tin rsonallty of the man Is regarded more and more in Its grander aspect. Soon the mantle of charity will cover the vaster part, and there will be no more of the Pecksiiltiian attitude among his highly moral critic.-.. In the meantime there is a growing army of Poe admirers in America that will rejoice to see a suitahl" mausoleum enclosing the remains of the country's most subtle literary artist. The pilgrimages that will be made to that tomb will more than atone for the honors that the hall of fame Judges s.i shamefully withheld - Oenver Hepublican. 0000XXOOOCOOO00 BEAR HUNTING IN CANONS OF PECOS FOREST RESERVE 00X)X)XK0X)XXXXXXXXXXXXOOCWi Hear hunting in the Rocky mountains is pretty ex citing sport anywhere you find it, writes K. Danna Johnson in April Recreation. Nowhere is it more so than down in the southern end of the Rockies in north ern New .Mexico, and especially in the heavily timber ed canons of the rugged peaks in the Pecos river for est reserve. This country's chief attraction is that it Is little known by sportsmen generally, and is so remote and unfrequented that it is a. happy hunting ground for the favored few who Invade it fastnesses. There are bears in the Pecos country. In fact the "woods aie full of them." This fact will be mournfully attested by the ranchmen who live along the river and tho cattlemen who Mavi. .rds grazing u; on some of the gr.tssy slopes of the higher mountains. It Is a gooj place for bruin. The canons ure deep and dark, and the aspen and spruce and pine forests are dense, aiiil i,, places almost inpeuelrable. The moun tain streams are lined -win, thick shrubbery. There are silver tip grizzlies in plenty, cinnamon bears and black bears. In certain seasons their depredations on stock ure frightful. The writer has seen great steers lying Willi tin- head twisted hind hide before, the mas sue neck evidently broken by one powerful turn of the bear's arms, anil perhaps the paunch partly eaten by the fastidious brute. In the summer time half eaten carcasses of horses and cattle may be always found in the ion,.y clearings up toward the timber line. At. limes they appear to slaughter the stock just for amusement. "Hear signs" are always to be found. Sometime tliuy uie nioio thaj, mere "signs" bis boulders pulled up out of the sockets and lolled down the mountain side, by the hungry animal hiking for succulent worms or Insects, bushes torn and trampled h libra he has been pulling down berries, logs torn apart and thrown about where he has been searching for . grubs. rxxrexsooooooooocooc 50,000 Pounds OF New Furniture eceived This Weeli The Cub's Corner WE WILL MISS YOU (Written especially for the occasion by Little Danny.)

Kditor Albunuerque Evening Citizen, Albuquerque, New Mexico. lieur Sir: Noticing the article in your paper of April 13th, quoting the troubles of Hanker Wynkoop, of New York, nnd his escort, Fred 1. min ing, being refused a drink of water by the agent at Kin Puerco, 1 will say: The Santa Fe employes one op erator, one section foreman and live laborers al this point, there being no agency here, but simply a train order telegraph office, which is open from noun to midnight. Now in justice to the Santa Fe, 1 as operator, will say that Mr. Huning and another gentleman, cunie to this ofm about 3 P. m. on the day in question, and inquired about No. 8, and they were told that No. 8 was four hours late. The gentleman with Mr. Huning then wanted a freight train stopped.. 1 asked the dispatcher at Winslow if 1 could stop extra east for Albuquerque passenger, nnd was told, "Can't stop orange train, but they have an engine backing up, and may stop and turn it at ltio Puerco." I informed the gentlemen who got aboard the train under the exact con ditions as outlined to him. This was the substance of my entire conversa tion with the two gentlemen, except in the case this freight did not stop, he asked me, how long it would take to furnish him a special train. 1 nun him 1 was only the operator and that he would have to arrange Tor the special through tho superintendent. (lave him Mr. C.ibsoirs auaresx, eic. He then asked how long it would lake to get a special. 1 told him It iepended on who he was and how much money lie had, and that It ne didn't complete the arrangements any faster than the soldiers and the fair association did a couple of years ago, he might get it sometime the next day. Now regarding these gentlemen be ing refused a drink of water by the agent here, fliere tiring no ageni here, this could not possibly have happened. As for myself, neither Mr. Huning or the gentleman with him asked me for any water for man or beast. Yours truly. J. 1). UAiiHi.lt. operator. Santa Fo Hy., llio Puerco.
