"WE GET THE NEWS FIRST" VOLUME 23. ALliUUUEKUUE. NEW MEXICO. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMUEK 9, 1908 M7MREH 217 WHEN ARE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES 10 SE CALLED? Republicans of This County Getting Tired of the Petty Scheming of Gtllen water and Crowd. HO WORK FOR ANDREWS BY NEW ORGANIZATION Peanut County Politics and Fra ming of Slate Keeps Would-be Bosses Busy. Forget That People Expect Them to Get Out Andrews Vole. Tha Republicans of Bernalillo coun ty are becoming restless under the inaction which has prevailed since the new county committee was cre ated.' There appears to be a well founded rumor that two or three men, notably W. H. Gillenwater, the county chair man, and the men who control the Journal-Democrat, ere figuring on a elate for county offices and not figur ing on much of anything else. In fact it is Quite apparent that no work U being done for the Republi can delegate to Congress despite tne fact that the new organization, when Andrews signed the somewhat notori ous letter endorsing their delegates t the recent primaries, pledged itself to support him loyally and honestly. The Republicans of this county, particularly those who are avowed candidates for county office, are be ooming restless and many inquiries are being heard as to when the coun ty chairman expects to call the pri maries and Whether he Intends to see that all are given a square deal or wiiether he is seeking to frame up a slate with himself as county boss. ' Tli? .fnnty chairman and several of his associates have ben caucusing for some days and it requires little imagination to guess what they are caucusing about, it is quite apparent that if they taa form a ring and by delaying the primaries until the last minute, force their slate upon the party, they intend to do it. But the most significant part of the present situation, is the apparent readiness of a large majority of the Republicans to rebel against any euch star chamber sessions and it 1 quite apparent that it an attempt is made by the county chairman and his crowd to work an open and shut game at the primaries, there will be things doing in Bernalillo county poll, tics. The Republicans are well aware that Andrews is being entirely neg lected by the new county organiza tion. Nothing whatever, has yet been done towards assuring the big ma jority which Is rightfully his in this county and there are loud murmur Ings heard at the way in which Gil lenwater and his crowd are disregard lag' their pledge to the Republican candidate fur delegate to Congress. The Democrats have perfected their organization In the county and are now sitting back, waiting patiently to e how many different things Gillen water intends to hand out to the Re publican party. It is quite apparent that if Glllen water and his crowd do not get onto tha Andrews band wagon pretty soon and show that they are going to sup port him sincerely and honestly, that they will lind themselves In all kinds of trouble Incidentally, it la also plain that if Gillenwater does not indicate pretty soon that he is going to call the prl marics early and give every one an equal chance, there are going to be a number of political brick bats cast . ! u.irciiun oi me county orga- o'clock when the Democratic state nlzat.i.n und there will be more dis- convention reassembled today Two cord in the party than there ever was reports from the Denver content were I presented from the committee on cre i here has been so much talk about, .l. ntlais.

The voters are of the opinion that a square deal and not a sl.ite is what they want, and they are determined to have It But no matter what may be done mu city and county are In no mood to have a second attempt made to d.tch Andrews and trade him for Democratic votes. The people have not forgotten that Andrews brought to this county alone j H60.0UO In 'appropriations from one! session of Congreas and they are de- ! termlned to re-elect him, if the votes ef this county can do It. It is quite apparent that Gillenwat er is under the thumb of the Jour ual-Deniocrat which has already an nounce. l that it ii annonlntir Anrireu-a I However, it is high time that Mr. uiuenwaier awaaen to me iact tnai ne is incidentally cnairman or a com mittee pledged to get out the An drews vote and from the talk which eminates from the rank and file of the party, it is time for that commit tee to begin Its work. The star chamber sessions, which Gillenwater and his Journal-Democrat friends, have been holding on the matter of controlling the county offices has amounted to nothing ex cept to eaue a slump in Gillenwater political stock, which has always been quoted considerable below par. Mr. Gillenwater should remember that he Is on trial bofore the Repub licans of this county at this time. His only political appearance - was as chairman of the city committee and his record In that capacity can stand considerable improvement. The party now stands united and it will remain so, If fair play Instead of bigotry and bosslsm Is permitted to nrxvnil. The sentiment amonar the Republican voters of the county ap- pears to be solidly for Andrews and vagu una morning wuuam j. uryan in favor of fair and open primaries arrivea ai Peoria at noon, accompaa at an early date. Hence the delay 'u y number of delegates to the and the schemlne of a few would-be i Democratic conveiitioii. which is bosses, can alone be held to blame If the party Is not united t the polls ' this fall.

Steven son, Democratic candidate tor gov ernor, i Tho Journey from the station to the hotel was a continuous ovation and uryan was forced to make a brief speech from the balcony. Later he addressed a great meeting on "The State and tno Nation." He said: The success of our system ot gov ernment rests upon the caretui ob servance of the constitutional divis.un of power between the state and tne nation. A number of expressions have been coined to descr.be the relatiooa existing between the federal govern ment and the several subdivisions, but no one has been more felicitous In definition than Jefferaon or more ac curate in drawing lines of deui&rka Uon. He presented the Historic PJ slliou of the Democratic party whin he declared himself in iavor of "the support of the state governments la All their rights as the moat competent administrations tor our domestic con cerns and the surest bulwarks agaiust anti-republican tendencies," and "the preservation of the general govern ment In its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our safety at homo and peace abroad." The Dem ocratic pialform, adopted at Denver, quotes the language of Jefferson and ueclares that it expresses the party a position at this time. it would be almost as difficult to maintain a free, self-governing repub lic over a large area and with a large population without state governments as it would be to maintain such a re public without a general government. The interests of the different parts of the country are so varied, and the matters requiring lcgis.at.ve atten tion so numerous, that it would be Impossible to have all of the work done at the national capltol. One has only to examine the bills Introduced in each Congress, and then add to the number the bills introduced at the legislative sessions of each ot the forty-six slates, to realize that It would be beyond the power of any body of men to legislate intelligently on the mutlllude of questions that re quire consideration. Not only would national legislators lack the time necessary for Inveatiga- lion, and therefore lack the informa tion necessary to wise decision, but the Indifference of representatives In one part of the country to local mat ters in other parts of the country would invite the abuse of powir. Then, too, the seat of government would be so far from the great ma jority of the voters as to prevent that scrutiny of public conduct which la essential to clean and honest govern ment. The union of the separate states under a federal government of fers the only plan that fan adapt It self to lndef.nite extension. our constitution expressly reserves to the tittles and to the people re spectively ail powers not delegated to the federal government, and only by respecting this division of power can we hope to keep the government with, in the reach ot the people and re sponsive to the will of the people, lieeause in all disputes as to the rela tive spheres of the nation and the states the final decision rests with the federal courts, the tendency Is riatur aily toward centralization, and greater care is required to preserve the re seved rights of the states than to malntri n the authority of the general government. In recent years another force has been exerting an Increasing Influence In extending the authority of the cen tral government. I refer to the great corporations. They prefer the federal : courts to the state courts, and employ every possible devlee to drag litigants before United States Judges. Thev also prefer congressional regulation to state regulation and those Interested In large corporations ha for years been seeking federal incorporation. The Democratic party will resist every attempt to obliterate state lines, whether the attempt la vnade through legislation or through Judicial Inter pretation.

There is no twilight gone between the nation and the stats iu which the exploiting interest, can lake refuge from both. There m no neutral ground where, beyond the Jurisdiction of either sovereignly, the plunderers oi the public can find a aafe retreat. As long as a corporation confines Its activities to the stale in which it was created il is subject to Blate regulation only; but a, soon as it invades inter stale commerce it becomes amenable lo federal laws as well as to the laws of the stale which created it and the law, of the states in which it does b usinc&a. t How strict can these laws be? Just ao suicl a, may be necessary for the protection nl the public. Uur platform outlines the regula tion deemed necessary, and the regu lation Is specifically set forth lu order that our opponents may not be able lo scare the publ.o by predicting hurt ful legislation. Uur p.atform, uuiike the Republican platform, says what 't means and means only what It says, A distinction Is drawn between the ruiiroad, and other ooriioraiioa. The iadrouU, belug a qa-s1-public corpora Uon and, as such, being permitted U exercise a part of the sovereignty of the slate, is suoject to regulation at the bauds of both the nation and the state, but this regulation is intended, nut to cripple the railroads hut to increase their efficiency. The peop.e at large are a, much Interested as the stockholders are In the successful op eration of the railroads. Their own pecuniary Interests as well as their sense of Justice would restrain them from doing anything that wou'd im pair the road or reduce its efficiency The traveling public is vitally Inter esled in the payment of wagcj suftl cient to command the most intelligent service, for life aa well as property Is in the hands of those who operate the trains, guard the switches and keep the track in repair. The Democratic party wojld dis tinguish between those la h ud own ers, directors and managers who, rec ognlz.ng their obligation to the public, earn their salaries by const, lenliojs devotion to the work entruited to them, and those unscrupulous "Na poleons of finance" who use railroads aa mere pawns in a great gambling game without regard to the rights of employe, or to the interestj of 'ho patrons. It is in the Interest of lion est railroading and legitlr.iati Invent ment that the Democratic party seeks to ascertain the present value jf the railroad properties and to pvvn' fcr the future the watering of itte't and the issue of fictitious capitalization; and It la ill the Interest of both the railroads and the public that it seeks only such reductions in transporta tion rates as can be" made without wage reduction, without deteriora tion In the service and without ,n Justice to legitimate investments. T"0 Democratic parly insist, that in the matter of regulation of raiiroaJd both the state governments and the federal government shall act up to, and yet within, their powers; for nothing else will restore the confidence and gO'l will that oURht to exist between the railroads and the people. In dealing with manufacturing and trading cor porations the Democratic party draws a distinction between thane corpora tions and they constitute the great majority of ail the manufacturing and trading corporations which are en gaged in a legitimate effort to supply what the consumers need, and the very few corporations which are seek ing by conscienceless methods to take advantage of the public on the one hand, while on the other hand th y bankrupt competitors, oppress th" producers of raw materials and deal arbitrarily with their employes. it endeavors to protect the Innocent cor porations by vls'tlng punishment upon those corporations which are guilty of Infractions of the moral and the stat ute law. Here, too, our platform Is specific and no one can use Its lan- ! guagA to frighten any business rain whose transactions are fair an l whoso Income la honestly earned. I MLLF.Y NOMIXATrn.

Duluth, Sept. . It was a night of terror on the range and one of deep anxiety for Duluth, which was threat ened for a time with total destruc tion by lire and saved only by the wind dying down. The flamea raged throughout the surrounding country all night and the glare could be seen for miles in every direction, while thick clouds of black smoke overhung the city.

More than a thousand residents of lilbbing fought thu flames all night and this morning report, from that town are that it is safe.

This morning the' wind is dying down- and the fires appear to be gradually burn ing themselves out. The most dramatic incidents of the entire fire promise to develop around Grand Marais. The steamer Gopher and a United stales gunboat, carrying fifty naval milit.a, left last night for Grand Marais to rescue settlers along the north shore. The village is en tirely cut off from means of commun ication and it will be twenty-four hours at least before anything is heard from the rescuers.
