Merry Widows" and Kindred
Headgear Take Up En
tirely Too Much Room.
Ministerial Alliance Requesls That
The Ladles Remove Their Hats
During Services, which Brings
Protest From Members of
the Fair Sex.
The "merry widow" hat and the
other more or les fashionable bon
nets affeited this season by the ladies
of Albuquerque have at last brought
down "righteous wrath" and while
the women are decrying against the
criticism of their headwear the men
for the most part are Indulging in se
At a recent meeting the Association
of Ministers In th s city decided to
start a crusiide for the removal of the
oig hats during services. Announce
ment was made from the pulpits
nearly all of the churches except the
Episcopal and Catholic, requesting
that the women remove their mon
strous haus during services.
The announcement caused a pro
found sensation among the fair sex,
und it is said that In one church sev
eral women left ra'.hcr than obey the
The ministers say that the big lists
take up too much room in the pews,
and in addition prevent those in the
rear of the church, from seeing the
pulpit, thereby hindering thorn, iu fol
lowing the services.
It is said that some of the hats
which have been worn to church
measured at least four feet in width
and two or three of them were
enough to fill a whole pew.
"I do not know what the result of
the stand taken by the ministers wlli
be," said a well known pastor this
morning. "I must admit that there
appears to be a decided opposition to
the request from the women and
many of them have shown plainly
that they do not Intend to comply
with the demand. It is not possible
for the ministers to make an ironclad
rule barring lad lea' hats from tne
churches, but we are going to do all
in our power to prevent the wearing
of thje big bonnets during services.
"The opposition on the part of the
women was unlookcd for and I under
stand that some will refuse to attend
church ruther than remove their big
"Th.1 very idea!" said a fair church
goer today. "Why. .Sunday is about
tlie only time I get to wear my new
hat. Take it off'.' Never! 1 think
the request Is unreiusonable from sev
eral view points. When a woman re
moves her hut ihe cannot help but
muss up her hair. It's hard enough
to keep my hair up these hot, windy
days, as it Is. Then, how on earth
can we get our hats track on straight,
without a looking glass?
"My! I can see myself going home
from church now, with my hair In
strings and my hat over one eye, with
everyone making remarks about my
slovenly appearance. If the women
must remove their hats in church,
they will have to carry a looking
glass, a comb and brush and a hand
ful of hairpins. In order to get the
hats back on again."
"Wh don't you wear a shawl over
your b.-ad '" suggested the mere man.
The woman gave h.m one withering

Koswell, X. M., June 11. (Sinctel)
The second day's session of th
Democratic Territorial convention did
not meet until 11:16 o'clock thia
morning and it Is not likely that It
will finish its work before lata thia
Ail eft or ;s to keep up the rather
stiulned brand of harmony were In
vain today. The Pecos valley people
consented to have J. F. Hinkle with
draw from the race for delegate and
preside over the convention, becaus
they saw that L-airazolo, with tha
bucking of the bosses and Hie blC
delegations from the northern coun
ties, was in position to run the whole
Hut the real crisis came this morn,
ing when the bosses began to caucus
among themselves on a slate for th
Denver delegation. The list of those
who wanted to go to Denver was far
too large for the represent itlon al
lowed thU territory.
As usual, the bosses tried to place
their frlifhds first, notably Summers)
Hurkhart of Albuquerque, who de
sires to head the list. The Pecos val
ley people found that In all likelihood
they would hot come In for represen
totlor. n.luer. l;..i. tu ?.l ff"i Uiar''j
two. Several other counties discov
ered that they also were not beln
11 iisidered. Such a howl went up
th it the bosses promptly left the cau
ri'.i. and went out among the dele
gates trying to restore harmony and
find out how to divide up the jobs
without provoking a grea.er out
burst. The slate which was originally
drafted was considerably damaged
when the bosses again began to cau
cus on the delegates to Denver.
It was decided to Increase the num
ber of delegates to twelve Instead of
six, allow each one half a vote and
Instruct them to vote as a unit for
llryan. But this attempt to com
promise, did not gain the fivor to
which Its originality entitled it, al
though it eventually prevailed.
An automobile trip through tho
beautiful farming district about Roa
well was hurriedly arranged and
many of the delegis went On tho
excursion as the guests of the hosplt
cble Hoswell people. Then the bosses
took off their coats and went at tho
slate In earnest.
At 11:15 It wa. seen that some of
the delegates were rather curious aa
tj why the convention was delayed In
geitlng down to business and tho
bosses laid off long enough to call tho
convention to order.
The re-convenlng of the convention
war. attended with the usual crowds
of spectators. The big auditorium was)
filled until standing room was at a
preumium. The ladles were out In full
force and added to the gala appear
ance. They have taken an active part
in showing the visitors that Itoswell
Kr.rws how to entertain.
Af.er the customary speech msa
Ir.r, the convention took up the work
of putting Its o. K. on the slate and
he following delegation was selected
to go t'i the Denver convention but
