BOY EXECUTIVE SIMPLY MADE SAD FAILURE Officially Announced From White House That Removal Is a Closed Incident. Special to The Evening I'ilivteii. El I'aso, Texas. April llli. Major W. H. Llewellyn, who arrived In El Paso this afternoon from Alamogor do, where he has been on business connected with his official duties, gave out the following statement for publication with reference to the re moval of Governor Hngerman: "This whole movemi nt to aroji sentiment in behalf of ex- lovernor Hagcrman emanates from the olllce of the Albuquerque mrrnlng paper, which Is making a desperate effort to save Hagerman's otlliiil .ieck, and Incidentally Its own patronage. "The fact Is, the president of this newspaper company holds an appoint ment at Hagerman's hands, aid the city editor of the same paper las been recently appointed oy :he lute governor to the secretaryship of tho territorial bureau of itnmigrat'ov at a good salary. "With them it is simply a crying to keep their pie. "Personally, I have no quarrel w,;!i tiovernor Hagereman, and there i- :t reason why 1 should oppose him One of the tirst appointments lit made was my appointment as Judge advocate general of the territory. "The statement that Hagerman's removal has been brought tb iut i. misrepresentation and .by 1'reslde.it Hoosevelt toeing deceived by rsonat ir Andrews, myself and other-. Is un qualifiedly false. "I can say from positive kiowiedto that Senator Adrews never made a charge against Hagerman, and any part that I have had n the inv.sstl gation of Hagerman's official acts has been in the line of my duty and under the direction from others abjve mc "The situation in New M.-xici. to far as Governor Hagerman 1st ooi cerned, may be summed uj ,'n the statement that unlurlunalely lie has made a failure, and. I may add large ly through the lault of irresponsible advisors.. ; "Vituperation, slander, mlsrepre sentatlon and falsehoods emanating from the columns of a disreputable newspaper will not chanre the facts. "The president, the secretary o." the interior and the attorney general have carefully eonudered and pasjjl upon the record made by Hagerman and their findings are against the gov ernor. The conclusions arrived at are not based upon the charges made by me. but upon (lovernor Hager man s record, and his fool friends in New Mexico are making themselves ridiculous by endeavoring to have something undone which is already- passed upon. "Hagerman Is out and Curry is In, and all frantic anad hysterical efforts to the contrary are very amusing and too silly to talk about. "In the past few days the presi dent has been deluged with telegrams congratulating him on Curry's ap pontment, sent from every county and town In the territory, by bankers, business men and leaders of the re publican putty." noswKMi conhf.mns ATTACK ON t UltV.

It was stated ut the meeting that Hag erman had not yet resigned and the endorsement of Curry was therefore not made.

Ha german: "I think Curry's appointment Is a most excellent one. During the past six years he has held important and responsible positions in tho Philippine islands. He went there as a captain In tho 11th United States. Cavalry. He has been chief of police of the city of Manila and governor of Min danoa and of Kumar, the latter po sitlon he now holds. "His career In New Mexico is well known. He has been sheriff of Lin coin county and sheriff of Otero county, the latter position under ap polntment of tiovernor Otero. He has been county clerk of Lincoln county. also clerk of the IT, H. district court In the. old Fifth district. He has been a member of tho legislature, also president of the territorial council, His public career in each of these Im portant positions has been eminently satisfactory to tho people. His rec ord as a public officer is without a single blemish nnd he has shown himself to be a man of great execu tive ability. "I do not think his being a cap tain In the Hough Itiders alone Inllu enced the president in appointing him governor of New Mexico. His record in the Philippines mid the important services he has rendered the govern ment entitle him to recognition, and the president has merely transferred him from the governorship of Samar to the governorship of New Mexico, "It is the personal selection and appointment of tho president and Mr. Curry will come to ,ew Mexico without a pledge to any person, or gaiiization or faction and in my opin ion will be the governor of the entire people of New Mexico. I predict for him a safe, sound, conservative and successful administration as our governor. "I have no personal feeling against tiovernor Hagerman. I never made any charges against him whatever. I know nothing concerning his resig nation. I think (lovernor Hagerman has done some excellent things in many matters. I do not understand the action taken by him, but I have no desire to criticise him. I do not think this Incident will have any ef feet on his political future. He seems to have mado a splendid record its at tache In the American legation at St. Petersburg. He Is a young man of education and ability and I sen no reason why he hasn't a good future."

His speech at that time will he devoted to the future and not to the past. He will then explain for the first time in public his Idea in regard to the overcapitalisa tion of railroads.
