Citizen's Editorial on Investi
gations Endorsed by
Impartial Reader
In Letter.
Citizen Thinks That Disgraceful
Attempt to Ruin Republican
Party by Attacking Lead
ers Should be
The editorial In The Citizen last
.evening. In which the harm being
done to New Mexico and to this city
by the publication of unfounded ru
mors of graft and fraud by certain
papers In an effort to disrupt the re
publican party was shown up, un
doubtedly fitted the views of several
Albuquerque people.
The Citizen today received several
communications bearing upon this
matter and the one published here
with shows that the writer undoubt
edly gave the matter serious thought.
The letter may not perhaps be as
complimentary to The Citizen as The
Citizen would like but in the main It
deals with one Important matter to
which all else Is subsidiary the good
of New Mexico.
The Citizen therefor publishes this
letter In full for the consideration of
Its readers and it does so without
comment, bias or prejudice in the
matter one way or the other. The
Citizen believes that continued harm
and no good can come from a con
tinuous attempt to black guard every
public official who dares to express
his views In opposition to the views
of the so-called reformers and The
Citizen said just what It believed,
last evening, when It expressed the
hope that the Investigation now un
der way would be made so thorough
that It would either oonvlct or ac
quit every man against whom news
paper charges have ibeen made and
thus' put an- end to this cry of fraud
and graft.
The letter received by The Citizen
Is as follows:
Commends the Citizen.
To the Editor: As a public spirit
ed citizen I wish to commend your
editorial! In Monday evening's Citizen
In which you condemn the practice
of wholesale attacks on New Mexico's
public men In the newspapers. I re
fer particularly to the Albuquerque
Morning Journal. I have been a
reader of both Albuquerque papers
for four or Ave years, and when the
Journal opened up its crusade for a
change In Bernalillo county's govern
ment I was In hearty accord and
hailed the paper as a sincere advo
cate of civic probity. When It went
into territorial affairs and backed the
Hagerman administration I was still
inclined to think favorably of its pol
icy, believing that Hagerman deserv
ed support.
lluiiMintiiient to Its IYIends.
It has seemed to me, however, that
the moment the Journal found that
Hagerman's faction would have a
hard fight In the legislature to securd
any recognition, that the management
of the paper lost his head like an
excited school boy and that he has
never obtained his equilibrium since.
Throughout the last legislative as
sembly the Journal was a disappoint
ment to its friends and a disgrace to
the territory, and since that time it
has become more and more rabid in
Its utterances until "biased" and "pre.
judieed" are weak words to descrlbo
Its political attitude. It can no more
be fair to any man who is a mem
ber of the opposting faction than it
can keep from belittling Max Frost.
Every reader of the Journal knows
exactly what to expect in every
morning's correspondence from Santa
Fe. If those special dispatches are
telegraphed I imagine the operators
have long ago adopted a code for
"gang" and "plundertmnd."
Huh Not Made Uood.
Like Hearst, the Journal has taken
advantage of the fact that it is easy
to secure the public ear with a cry of
""graft." It is easy to excite sympa
thy from the people if you can make
It appear that you are espousing their
cause against Injustice. I was one
who believed so at the start. Hut In
the light of later developments 1 can
not convince myself that the Journal
has made good. The moment It se
cured sufficient Influence It sent lis
publisher and city editor to Santa Fe
and brought back the secretaryship
of the bureau of immigration. I
didn't like that In the face of what
had been said In the Journal about
this very "territorial graft." It re
minded me too much of the preacher
who closed his prayer one morning
after a partially successful appeal to
his congregation for church funds
with the words. "Thank t;od, the
fund for the payment of the minis
ter's salary is safe, aiu-how."
Nothing liut Humors.
I rather enjoy a newspaper fight
if It Is conducted on a fair basis but
can the Journal call Its methods fair?
Only recently when the resignation
of A. M. Bergere. district clerk at
Santa Ke, was requested by Judge
McKie the Journal spread this news
broadcast In flaring headlines, and
followed It up for several days with
"reports," "rumors." etc., discredit
able to Mr. Hergere. The truth is
that no one outside of the govern
ment agents know why Mr. Hergere's
resignation was a-keii, and the Jour
nal has so acknowledged since. Was
this Inferred calumny fair? Such a
thing might happen to any official
and It af:erward developed that he
was liui'N -nt of anything oilier than
a technical charge. Whether or not
this be true of Mr. Bergere, I hold it

Secretary Taft, Home Loving Wanderer,
Now Revelling in Vacation With Family
C 9
Secretary und Mrs. Taft at Their Summer Honic, Murray Hay. Canada.
Big War Chief Enjoys Recren
atlon In Cool Air of
Murray Bay. Canada. August 6.-
This Is the place where Secretary
Tart Is spending his vacation, and
a Joyous vacation it is, though a
strenuous one. With him are Mra.
Taft, their only daughter, Miss Helen,
Uixbert, the oldest son and child, who
Is a Yale student In winter, and
Charlie, who Is "a mere chllderene."
.Here, also are the secretary's
brothers, Charles P. and Henry Taft,
of Cincinnati, with their wives, and
not far away Is the summer home of
Justice Harlan, of the United Mates
supreme court,
tiuch an outing as this with his
family Is a great treat to a home
loving man like big "Bill" Taft, who
has traveled 100.000 miles since he
entered the caibinet, and who will
start on another trip to the Philip
pines In a few weeks, after his va
cation Is over. It is a rare treat to
see the big secretary bobbing along
toward the golf links to meet one of
his brothers or Judge Harlan in a
friendly match.
The Murray Bay links are laid O'lt
on the side of a thousand hills. There
are 18 holes, and these holes are
reached by veritable mountain climb
ing, jumping ditches, traveling along
dusty and rough roads and by other
difficult routes over a rocky way. It
takes a good three hours to get
around them, and the secretary does
It with a score of 95.
Ideal Summer Home.
The Taft summer home, outside 3i
Murray Bay, greatly resembles a
Filipino bungalow, and is fitted
throughout with Filipino mattings,
scarfs, presentation Hags, etc., and
there Is even a Filipino servant, Man
tico, who Insisted on following the
secretary to the United Stales.
In the town Itself, the little old
French Canadian hill town, ' M'sieu
Taft" Is the one Important figure.
Prominent Americans of all sorts
come and go during the summer, but
he is the one unfailing figure of gen
eral Interest.
Works With Secretary.
Taft works during the summer
from seven in the morning until
eight or half-past dictating to his
secretary his opinions concerning war
department matters which come b
the night mall.
Then he has breakfast. After
breakfast, rain or shine, he takes his
golf clubs and goes to the links to
put in a full morning.
At lunch time he turns up bright
and smiling, eats a bite and goes back
to his secretary and his war depart
ment again for several hours.
Xate in the afternoon he puts
thoughts of work aside and he and
Mrs. Taft go out to the summer
house, nothing more than a covered
enclosure with some rough seats, to
read and talk.
Iate in the dusk of the evening he
and the children play together around
the tennis court or on the lawn. It
is a pleasant sight, for, so far as
games are concerned Taft is like
Peter Pan he has never grown up.

. Comer In Conference
Today With Official
of Southern.
Montgomery, Ala., August 6. The
outlook for a peaceable settlement
ot tne controversy between the South
ern Hallway and the state anDeared
good this morning. Vice President
Kussell of the Moitjlle and Ohio, rep
resenting President Finley, of the
Southern, was in conference with
Governor Comer, and it is thought
amicaroie arrangements will be reach
ed. Two plans. It Is said, were suggest
ed, one by which the railroad will
be allowed to withdraw Its suit, taken
to the federal court, and the other
that a test jase le made and both
parties aoiue oy the decision.
Itailroad an Outlaw.
The railroad officials are very de
slrous of avoiding any trouble with
the state and the executive officials of
Alabajna say that they will meet any
overtures of the road at least half
way, hence there is reason to believe
that the present negotiations will be
successful and that a situation which
has been to say the least critical 'n
many points, will be amicably set
tled. The revocation of the railroad's
charter, it is generally believed, will
be withdrawn. This revolution pla.:ej
the railroad in the position of an
outlaw and gave the state an oppor
tunity to cause wholesale arrests of
its employes for conducting trains
ana ousiness inside the state without
proper authority.

New York. August 6. William, 6.
Alley, a member of the New York
stock exchange, committed suicide by
shooting last night. He has been a
member of the exchange since IS 73,
but has been under suspension from
the exchange for almost a year, and
since then had confined his operations
to the curb market.
He left no word explaining his act
but his friends believe he was de
spondent over financial troubles. He
was D5 years of age.
Alley was expelled for alleged un
fail dealings with other members of
the board, though he has always con
tended his innocence. Since his ex
pulsion, he has made some notable
curbstone deals and has been often a
factor in the markets, but he has
been depressed over his affairs, and,
while amounted a wealthy man, not
Involved to any etent, It is believed
financial troubles worried him to the
pint of suicide.
