SOUTHERN STATES Will SOIVE THEIR OWN General Evans Says Only People of the South Treat Negroes With Kindness. ANY INTERFERENCE WILL BE MISDIRECTED Birmingham, Ala., June 10. The feature of this morning's session of the Confederate veterans was a speech by General C. A. Evans, who Is slated to succeed General Lee as commander of the veterans' associa tion. General Evans aaid in part: The southern states have their own problems which they desire to solve for the common good. It is true also that there are other questions not ex clusively southern, in which the peo ple of the south are concerned equal ly wl'.h all citizens such for instance as the general questions of the Just relations between the states, and be tween any state and the general gov ernment. But even this problem was made local as to the southern states and became acutely oectlonal in the years between 1850 and 18S1 when the circumstances that African slavery had become an Institution was used to create a dangerous south ern problem. After many unsuccess ful expedients, the Mates In the south fled for refuge to secession and that being denied they were forced to fight and having failed In that, they sur-1 rendered without any settlement by negotiations or war. Hence the old disturbing presence In our country of a people of African j descent became more serious than I ever because the problem was loaded from 1865 with new and Insupport able condition. These negroes in the southern states were merely turned loose with nothing but the power to vote and hold office wl'hout qualifica tions. They were not offered homes anywhere except In the south, and they fell as a load on the southern people.

SERIOUS CONDITION MUST BE REMEDIED At a special meeting held yesterday afternoon in the office of Mayor Les ter, Dr. Samuel T. Gray, the sewer expert, told the city fathers aome things about the city's sewage sys tem thai caused ich paternal brow to tuke on a grave expression. The situation is acutely serious. Dr. Gray said that many of the sewer pipea were broken and leaking and that .here was danger that the ctty's wa ter supply might become Impregnat ed with germs from the sewage. No time should be lost in removing the present dangerous conditions. Dr. Gray did not make a formal report to the council, but told the members a few things that he had discovered while investigating the old ewer system. He said that the Al buquerque wool scouring mills, the Albuquerque Gas plant ana the Santa Ke shops were largely responsible for the choked condition of the sewer mains. All of these places cause mat ter to enter the sew eta which forms a sediment that the poor gravity of the sewer will not remove. He told the council that he most heartily agreed with City Engineer Gladding In al most every respect regarding the kind of sewer system the city needs and complimented Mr. Gladding very highly for the work be had done and was doing. An engineer or a sewer expert Is absolutely helpless to make a report on u sewer system for a city without a map allowing the topography of the land to be drained and the elty of Al buquerque, he had found, owned very little data as to the lilies and alti tudes within its limits. Thla data, said Mr. Gray, would have to be fur nished him before he could muke his report. Mr. Gray said also that he believed that Mr. Gladding was capa ble of furnishing this data, and that he would rely n him for It. Iir. Gray refused to any what part If any of the old system could be used In he bulld og of the new. This! could be determined only after a most thorough examination, which could riot lie made until the sewers were almo-o empty. At present they are so full that .he sewage mounts to neit thv too of many of the man holes. Dr. Gihv sn d that he sympathize ! with Stieet Commissioner Tlerney. Within three days he had learned some of the difficulties and trials of the position. The sewers were kept running under the moat trying clr ( iim.-ta ne, s. Men were kept busy dally going from manhole to manhole bailing out tar, grea-e and slime and other stuff that blocked the stream.

Hlnkle's Name Will Not Go Before Democratic Conven tion as Result of Alleged Compromise. LARRAZ010 Is VOTES AND WIEIBE NOMINEE Fight Called Off as R suit of New Program-Chaves of Bernalillo Chairman of Democratic Convention-Roswell Proves Hospitality. Roswell, N. M., June 10 (Special) The name of J. F. Hlnkle, candl dute for delegate to Congress at the hunus of the Democratic voters of the Pecos valley, will not go before the Democratic convention, which Is In session here today. Lurrazolo of Las Vegas has the nomination cinched and the bosses who are back of him will shove his nomination through. Just how. the deal 'was fixed up is not public yet but the bosses tills afternoon are quietly giving It out that llinklo and his friends have laid down, and will not tight on the Hour of the conven tion. The deal was fixed up at a meeting of the central committee this morn ing. There is considerable dissatis faction among the Pecoa valley con tingent but several of their leaders are beseeching them to wait as they have In the past, for the usual prom ises have been made. In other words it is understood if they are good and permit the leader of forlorn hopes to walk off with the nomination they will get something else in the sweet bye and bye. It la the same old deal but the har mony of It la a rather doubtful com modity this year. The central committee held a meet ing this morning, followed by a ses sion of the bosses, at which the slate was manufactured. The convention finally came to order at 10:30 o'clock at tilt call of Chairman A. A. Jones. Mr. Jones' speech was brief and to the point. It promised the annihila tion of the Republican party In the territory, and brought forth the usual applause. The call was then read ty Secre tary W. B. Walton of Silver City, who Is playing a conspicuous part In th effort to harmonize the party. Mr. Walton was at one time con sidered good timber for delegate but refused to consider the nomination. The invocation was delivered by Rev. J. W. Smith, pastor of the M. E. church of this city. Mayor G. A. Richardson then hand ed over the keys to the city In a clever speech, which won him favor with every delegate. Antonio Joseph, a veteran of Taos county politics, re- uponded. The slate which bad been previously prepared came into evi dence when the central committee recommended the selection of E. V. Chaves of licrnulillo and K. K. Scott of this city us temporary chairman and secretary, respectively. Mr, Chaves made an elaborate speech In which he centered all his eloquence on a plea for harmony. Tho plea caused several tired, tired sighs from the Pecos valley Democrata, who have been the most harmonized Democrats In the southwest recently. The usual committees were then appointed, consist. ug of one delegate from each county. It was noticeable that the men who went on these cutu- r-i-... p........

When the Re publican national committee met this morning it took up the contented del egations from the Eleventh uid Twelfth Missouri districts. The antl Taft people were not over-hopeful as the committee decided against them in tho Tenth Missouri district fight yesterday. The Missouri con tests were between Hughea and Taft and the Hughes men were making hard fight as the Missouri delegates were the principal one for him out side of New York state. After consideration of the two Hl souri districts the committee decided to combine the two and decided tha contests in favor of Taft. After tha decision Chairman New said, In dis cussing the work of the commute with a number of newspaper men: "I know it has been charged that the Taft people on the committee have been riding roughshod over ev erything. I want to say, however, that all the contests that have been t settled by the committee have been i decided strictly on their merits and on the evidence presented. There' has been no rough-riding over any body." , ' The contest in the case of tto delegatea-at-large from. North Caro lina were then taken up and decided in favor of Secretary Taft's claim ants. The contests from the First district in the same state were alao decided in Taft's favor and the Sec ond district fight waa disposed of In the same manner. ' Manager Frank II. Hitchcock; of the Taft forcea today made an im portant declaration In relation to the vice presidential situation. He said: "On the question of nomination of a vice president, Taft and his man agers have made no combinations or deals. They will not, hereafter, make uny combinations or deals and will not push the candidacy of any partic ular man. We are simply working to secure the nomination of Taft on tha first ballot and when we have achieved that we will be highly sat isfied.
