TELLES IS
CONDEMNED
TO DEATH
Judge McFie Designated
Friday, April 3, as the
Day for Execution.
PLEA OF GUILTY TO MURDER
The Prisoner Showed Little Feel
ing Until the End of the
Sentence Was
Beached.
There was an impressive scene In the
district court this afternoon at 2 o'clock
when Joso Tellos, Indicted for tho mur
der of Epltaclo Oallosios and for the
murder of a man at Kennedy, sto:;d be
Judge McFie on Ills plea of guilty to
murder In tho first degree, to receive
his sentence, Tolles was onoof tho two
men who escaped aftor murUorlng Epl
tacio tJallegos, tho jailor, and aft r his
indictment for that crime, entered
plea of guilty. The court room was
crowded when he was brought in. He
is still slightly lame from his experience
while trying to escape aud ho was not
shackled in any way. As soon as court
was opened, Judge Mc. Fie ordered him
to stand np and receive his sentence.
Tellos at first did not appear to be af
fected in any way, but as tho court pro
ceeded with his arraignment of him and
his career, ho grew paler and paler, and
when the final death sentence was pro,
nounced, all color loft his face.
Judge McFie reviewed tho crime for
which Telles was confined in the jail
hero and then said that he had conceiv
ed the Idea of escape. Judge McFie
then said, "You took the jailor and
locked him securely in a cell. You took
the keys to the jail and could have gone
without killing Epltaclo Gallegos. You
refused to leave the jail even on the plea
of the jailor that you had locked him the
cell that you should leave and not harm
Gallegos. You refused to go. You
waited half an hour for Gallegos and
you said you would wait for bim. It is
evident, in the face of your plea of
guilty and from your conduct that you
intended to kill him. You took the life
of one of the best citizens of Santa Fe,
of Santa Fe county and of the territory,
lie was a law abiding and Inoffensive ".
izen and yet you shed his blood deliber
ately. Ordinarily tho duty which de
volves upon this court would be exceed
ingly dlsagreeablo and one which would
tax the court to the utmost. But, on
the other hand, In this case, the punish
ment is just. You took the life of Epe
tacio Gallegos in a dastardly manner.
Your case is that of pne who has adopted
the life of crime and has followed it to
tho end. If there is any young man in
the hearing of my voice who has ever
contemplated or is contemplating ad
opting ' the life of crime, let him
see in this case that he ought to pause
and hesitate. This sad case shotrld be
a wholesome example to such an one.
This is a legitimate case of adopting
such a life. "Ho who sheds mans
blood, by man shall his blood bo shed."
These words were spoken hundieds of
years ago and they are as true today as
when spoken. I am sony that you
must so end your life. The law is su
preme and the lives of the citizens of the
Territory and ofo ther commuities must
be protected. It is sad for you that your
life must be taken. You seem to realize
that you have gone far enough In your
life of crime and that you are prepared
to ond it, This Is inde'ed a sad and piti
ful spectacle. When you entered your
plea of guilty, I asked you if you under
stood the penalty of death might be
Imposed upon you and you
said that you did. I again asked you
the same question and again you said
that you realized what you were doing.
You seem to ieei that you nave reached
that point In your life where you feel
that your blood should be taken for the
blood you have shed. Such shall be the
case, it is the sentence oi this court
that you be remanded to the custody of
the sheriff of Santa Fe county and be
held by him In secure confinement until
Frldav. April 3, and that on said day
you shall be taken by the sheriff to some
convenient place and there between the
hours of 8 a, m ana 4 p. m. De Dy him
hanged by the neck until you are dead
and may God have mercy on your soul."
Telles said notning in repiy ana was
at once taken back to the jail.

JOINT STATEHOOD
OR NOTHING IS
THE ULTIMATUM
Senator W. H, Andrews Emphasizes from a Republican
Standpoint What Judge N. B. Laughlin Stated from
the Democratic Point of View The Two Terri
tories Should Work Together.
SENATOR ANDREWS TOLD THE EAST-
ERIN PEOPLE OF THE MAGNIFICENT PRO
GRESS THAT NEW MEXICO HAS MADE
Senator W. H. Andrews returned
yesterday noon from Washington where
he has been fighting energetically to se
cure statehood for. New Mexico, His
long legislative experience, his wide ac
quaintance among the statesmen at
Washington, his close relations with
Senator Quay, made his work on be
half of statehood especially valuable.
Senator Andrews can speak authorita
tively on the status of the statehood
question if any one can, and he says
most emphatically that New Mexico
will be granted statehood by the pres
ent congress at its winter session. But
New Mexico and Arizona will be ad
mitted as one state and that uncondl
tionally, except that the capital is to
be at Santa Fe, mainly for historic and
sentimental reasons. Separate state
hood is out of the question, need not
be considered at all for a long time to
come, if ever. The point to be accom
plished is to shape popular opinion to
favor statehood, to overcome the preju
dice of Arizona against a union with
New Mexico.
Senator Andrews says that Senator
Quay was terribly in earnest in push
ing the statehood bill, but at no time
could he persuade the Republican steer
ing committee of the senate to consent
to a vote on the omnibus bill. The Re
publican majority was even opposed
to a compromise and it was a great vic
tory for the statehood workers when
the Republican leaders at last consen
ted to make a compromise proposition.
The statehood battle would have been
won then, If Arizona had declared en
thusiastically for the compromise, but
Delegate Mark Smith refused to do this
and the Arizona legislature In its reso
lution passed at the eleventh hour de
manded preposterous conditions and
as a consequence the Democratic sena
tors rafused the proffered compromise
and thus statehood was defeated.
However, the Republicans have
agreed to give the territories state
hood, have agreed to make it a caucus
measure and will pass it by Republican
votes. But all dreams of separate
statehood for New Mexico and Arizona
must be put aside. The majority in
congress will never consent to that and
the fight for ' statehood must be made
along, the lines of joint statehood and to
overcome the prejudice, if any such
exists, against the proposition to unite
the Territories. The state would come
n with two senators, three represent
atives, would have five electoral votes
and would Immediately be of importance
n political affairs and be a leader
ainnnsr the western states, in oxtunv
and resources the new state would bo a
verltablo empire that could support a
state government and state institutions
as they should be supported. Senator
Andrews said that If he ever had any
personal ambitions in connection with
statehood he sacrificed them when ho
came out for joint statehood but he
deemed the welfare of the territories
above every other consideration. Before
returning home, Senator Andrews was
Interviewed by the Philadelphia North
American, which devoted a whole page
to a symposium of interviews favoring
statehood for New Mexico. The article
is Illustrated with pictures of territorial
institutions and portraits of Senators
Quay and Andrews. The following Is a
synopsis of the Interview with Senator
Andrews:
"Senator Andrews bubbles over with
enthusiasm when he talks about the Ter
ritory of his adoption, He firmly be
lieves that the Statehood fight is won,
and that the generalship of Senator
Quay Is bound to place New Mexico
among the galaxy of States by 1904. He
sat in Senator Penrose's committee
room, that on Immigration, while talk
ing for The Sunday North American.
"The former Pennsylvanlan knows his
story well. He can rattle off statistics
about New Mexico until his listener s
head is In a whirl, and he can, and does,
give more reasons why his adopted Ter
ritory should be taken into the National
Sisterhood of the States than even his
Chief has been able to figure out.
According to himit is a God-fearing,
peace-loving, prosperous community
that needs only the proper encourage,
ment to become soon the greatest of all
the States,
"New Mexico Is the greatest country
out of doors. Why, it is Republican to
the backbone. The entire native popu
lation is Republican, because it desires
protection. The Mexican cattle would
come in over the border and swamp the
cattle raisers but for the benign protec
tive policy of the Republican party.
"Why, In our Territorial Legislature
there are but two Democrats, and they
are in the lower bouse. They are mighty
good, sensible people, those natives.
They are docile, peaceable and Indus
trious. They want stp'ehood to a man.
Then the American population is knock
ing with all Its might.
"We had with us in the fight just
closed, Senators Quay and' Penrose, El'
kins, Gallinger,Mason, Burton, Perkins,
Burrows, Foraker, llansbrougb, and
McCumber, of North Dakota; ones and
Stewart of Nevada, and Foster and
Miichell of Washington, among the Re
publicans. "But I do not care to talk about the
political aspect of the situation. New
Mbxico Is big enough to talk about on
her own merits. Tht re are farms in New
Mexico as big us counties down East.
Thero uru hig, broad, whole-souled men
who are developing the resources of the
country. Four of the biggest men in
the Territory are Joshua Reynolds, the
banker, .Snluman Luna, a Republican
Natloniil Committeeman, a man of great
woalth, his interests being In agricul
ture and sheep; W. S. Hopewell, a capi
talist, who owns thousands upon thous
ands of head of cattle, and Is chairman
of tho Democratic State Committee, and
Frank A. Uubbull, chairman of the Re
publican State Committee, another big
and good man. Such men as these
shape the course of the Territory, and
may bu depended upon to conduct the
affairs of the new state.
"Do you happen to know that the
admission of New Mexico into statehood
was stipulated in the annexing of the
territory? For over 50 years the old
states have kept New Mexico out under
false pretenses. The territory is as or
derly as the State of Pennsylvania.
There are more churches per capita and
more school houses than in any other
jurisdiction in the country.
Tho Roman Catholic church has an
archbishop at Santa Fe, Archbishop
Bourgado. livery little community has
its littlo Catholic church, and there are
thousands of people belonging to other
denominations.
"Now Mexico is tho only one of the
states and territories where train rob
bery is made a capital offense. The
carrying of a concealed weapon is a very
serious offenso with us. Law and order
prevail everywhere, and a man Is safer
from robbery and attack In Santa Fe or
Albuquerque than In Philadelphia.
