The convention hull was built with the understanding that the side-walk aiound 11 wou.d be on the same grade with the Elks' opera house walk.

"I believe that th two gentlemen named will prove acceptable to each side," said Chairman Bursum, "and 1 think they possess the qualifications necessary to Insure fair play at the primaries, which is all that any of ut desire.

Much Interest was mnnl-1 Point of eight cadets found guilty of i dependent action will bitaken hv fected as to who the governor would name. One susgfstlon frequently heard here today, and which appeared to meet with popu'ar approval also, was that In making his appointment the governor sel.-ct a man from some oth- ir county besides Bernalillo, who , i t lJIOlBp BBB0 IS BBjhalggfflMjgr fSm marwSKmm I mnnirainmni ET!J8yT V Pi KTretaminilwSil'l'. I I ilia I I I mm would in no wise be identified with affairs political here. The appointment of a foreign mem ber of th. primary commission was urged on the grounds that with some Individual, at least, anyone who might be appointed from this county would be under more or less criticism, no matter how hard he might try to be fair. If the third member of the com mission were taken from another county, then all grounds for suspicion would be wiped out and there would be no chance for a controversy as to his local affiliations. While It Is known that this county has any number of men who would fill the position with absolute Integ rity ami who would discharge the du ties lii the best of faith, .till It was urged that the selection of some one from another county would be a long step towards harmony. It Is not known whether or not the governor will act upon the suggestion nor whether the suggestion has been made to him.

THEJELD E. L. Medler, Well-Known At torney and President of Commercial Club Ex presses His Views , MAN WHO DOES" THINGS ' IS LOGICAL CANDIDATE Declares That Sentiment Through out Territory Is Favorable to Andrews Despite Newspaper Attacks- Would be Unwise to Send any Other Alan t July 25. 1908. Editor of the Citizen. Albuquerque, New Mexico. Iear Sir: I hav. read with con siderable Interest the various article. In the newspaper, throughout the territory upon the candidacy of W. H. Andrew, for renominatlon upon ' the Republican ticket as delegate to Con gress. From my extensive travels throughout the territory prior to the first of last December and when there was no heat of political bottle over the election of any individual to Con gress, universal expression, of good will and appreciation of the work ot Mr. Andrews in Congress were heard on every hand. It la therefore sur prising to note the sentiment attempt, ed to be engendered by various news papers in the territory. In my opinion, Mr. Andrews at this tln.e Is the most logical candidate. From personal observation In Wash ington of hi. work In Congress and the Intimacy of his association with those who control legislation, It would b. unwise to .end to the next Con gress some one new to the working, of the House of Representatives. If the people of New Mxlco are desirous of being represented by some one who can secure some material beneflis for the territory. It Is Indeed a poor argu. ment that Mr. Andrews 1. a weak can. didate and that th. Republican Dartr should select some other, when It Is a well known fact that very few mem- Der. or Congress entitled to vote ac complish anything during their first term. I have also viewed with considera ble Interest the attack, made upon Mr. Andrew.' personal character In the paper, of the Territory, and am yet awaiting to hear of hi. Indict ment by any grand Jury in the state of Pennsylvania, growing out of the transaction, referred to ln such ar ticle.. I have always assume, I that it was a principle of Anglo-Saxon Juris prudence that a person was Innocent until proven guilty. In this case, however, the opposite seem, to be the rule. While the other candidates men tioned for the nomination are per sonal friends of mine and would make good delegates, still I bslleve as a matter of party policy Mr. An drews at this time could subserve our Interests better In view of thn nosxl- blllty of our early securing statehood, anil would be of more service than any other person, to our own com munity In particular.
