Minor City Topics Big Show Tomorrow Night There is no flattery so flattering to the mod em playwright as that evinced when the audience becomes interested enough to inquire where the charat. tors were secured, and if they were taken from real life, and the fact that they ask the question shows with what fidelity the author has builded h play, for the patron wishes to verify the opinion that there exists some where an original for the counterfeit, When "The Farmer's Daughter" was given its initial production in Chicago recently, the management received a score or more of letters from patrons of the theater asking where such and such of the characters were taken from, and the success of the piece can largely be attributed to the inter est created by the masterly manner in which the author has handled his mimic folk of the stage. And while it is true that he has" selected jf re gion rich in opportunity for the laying of the scenes of the play, he has shown a splendid conception of the idea the simple living country folks of New England, and his beautiful story of the daughter who "was more sinned against than Binning," has resulted in a rural drama that is easily proving the successor to "The Old Homestead" and "Way Down East." The engage ment of the play is announced for Wednesday night at the Opera House Tickets at Stripling and Burrows'.

COUNCIL. j Tuesday Afternoon. . Every member present except Mechem, who is ill, when President Spiess called the Council to order. Numerous local option petitions were presented by various members, j as well as a petition from Roosevelt county to be annexed to Curry county; and a petition asking for the extension of the local option herd law to Union county. House Bill No. 42 was reported V 1 Vi r -rm m J f f an rr Am A 1 r a ytt with various amendments. Thia' is the "jury" bill, the amend-1 ments changing it so that instead of five commissioners appointed by the district judge, the commission to se lect jurors for the district court shall consist of the probate judge, chairman of the board of county commissioners and one person to be designated hy the district court and to be of differ ent political faith of the other two members if these latter two are mem bers of the same party. The jurors are to be selected at the term of court previous to that in which the jurors are to serve but the names of the" venire men must be kept secret. Upon request of Hanley, Catron withdrew his motion to pass the bill under suspension of the rules to permit Hanley to examine its pro visions. The committee on education, "re ported a Substitute Bill for Council Bill No. 109, an omnibus educational bill. The committee on territorial affairs reported favorable Council Bill No. 46, to prohibit .the making of false state ments in reference to mining proposi tions. ' ' , The committee on counties and county lines reported Council Bill No. 100 favorably. , The .following bills were intro duced: Council Bill No. 131, by President Spiess, annexing certain territory to the county of Curry.

Re ferred to the committee on judiciary. Council Bill No. 133, by Catron, per mitting certain persons to bring suit against the Territory of New Mexico for the amounts of their claims and otherwise. The bill was passed unan imously tinder suspension of the rules. Under the bill, any person can sue the territory for monies or land of which the territory has made use, or for damages caused through acts of the territory through its officials or otherwise. It was explained that this merely re-establishes a practice fol lowed in this territory for fifty years, until declared illegal by the United States Supreme Court which ruled that a legislative act is necessary be fore the territory can permit itself to be sited in the courts for claims against it. It Is also to prevent claim ants from coming to. the legislature for redress, the courts being opened to them for that purpose by the act. A recess was taken to enable the steering committee to pass upon the bills on the president's table. The report of the committee on ed ucation, on Council Joint Resolution No. 4. askinsr for the return or oral Government at Washington, re- vlowe( tll nistory f tne removal of the archives from Santa re.. to the national capital under an act, of the territorial legislature. However, the federal government now claims orig inal ownership of the archives and that they were taken to Washington not under the act of the territorial legislature, but upon a federal order, and that being the case, as long as New Mexico is under the territorial form of government it is helpless. It stances, but being a state, refused At 4 p. m. the Council was again called to order by President Spiess and the steering committee recom- menaeu me passage 01 council urns Nos. 46 and 100. Council Bill No. 46, by Prince, an act to punish the making of false and exaggerated statements, especially in refeernce "to mining propositions, was passed unanimously. 4, Council Bill No. 100, by Gallegos, an act to authorize county commision- ers to dispose of public property, was passed unanimously.

Local Option Petitions In regard to the petitions for local option , law it is explained that the typewritten petitions are exact copies of the orig inal list and are marked "copy of orig inal.'" These copies are made so a list may be turned into each committee and when a copy is filed in one House, the original is filed in the oth er. A question has been raised in re gard to several names being signed in the same handwriting. The peti- ions are comparatively few where this the ca? andt " is JTm this w,as, whf e e 3 wls?S sign did. not write well, or did not write at all, and asked the party circu lating the petition to sign for them, and it is understood that this is per fectly legitimate. Freak Legislation It was a Texas Solon, and not a Nebraskan, as a con temporary asserts, who first offered a bill to require boarding house and ho tel sheets to be at least nine feet long. It was also a Texas statesman who suggested a compulsory tax on bach elors, to the end that matrimony might be promoted. At one time a member of a Texas Legislature offered a bill, in the words, of the former Massachu setts law, to punish the vain for "light and frivolous carriage." " A Georgia legislator has recently presented a bill to forbid girls wear ing Btriped hose or artificial bloom upon their cheeks. Oregon has sought to "regulate" the length of hatpins by law. Iowa Solons are try ing to put a premium-on babies; and Wisconsin lawmakers are considering whether all shoe dealers shall not be compelled (by law) to stamp the cor rect number on the outside of every pair of shoes so that it can . be seen of all men. In speaking to this bill an eloquent member propounded many questions. For example: "Is not, a small foot one of the requisites of female beauty? Do not the dear cera tures gladly submit to torture ; to squeeze a number five foot into a number three shoe? Do they not wear stilted heels under the middle of the foot to 'make it look smaller?" Hence, why any sjch legislation? Of course the freak bills and resolu tions often referred to are presented as matters of fun, and sometimes serve a good purpose by promoting good humor. One section, reviving" an ancient law, should be added to every state constitution, to the effect that every member offering a new law should do so with a halter around his neck, to be used to swing him off in case the law failed to pass. .Veto By Governor Governor Curry has vetoed Council Bill No. 35, by Navarro, an act to punish the dese cration of graves and the unauthor ized removal of remains from ceme teries. Omnibus Education Bill The om nibus educational bill introduced this afternoon in the Council by Prince, embodied the various educational propositions thus far proposed in the assembjy." Among these are the pro visions of the Sanchez hill, giving each third grade teacher $15 for at tendance at the county normal instl tute; the provison of the Prince bill, making two members of the territor all educational board, "laymen" in addition to the governor, and a prop- , osition to change the date of the J school elctiona from. April to June, the Castaneda County Now The advo cates of Jaffa, formerly Taft county, have now switched to Castanedo county, and with banker J. P. Lavelie of Taiban at the head, descended in force upon the legislature today. OFFICIAL MATTERS Incorporation.

The territorial law provides that a day shall be set apart each year, known as ARBOR DAY, to be ob served by the planting of trees and shrubbery, for the benefit and adorn ment of public and private grounds; that the governor shall be proclama tion at the proper season call atten tion to this law and specify a day for its observance: Now therefore, I, George Curry, governor of the Territory of New Mex ico, do hereby designate Friday, March 26, 1909, as Arbor Day in the Territory of New Mexico, which shall be a holiday in all the public schools. Under the law it is the duty of the school officers and teachers, especially county superintendents of schools, to personally and actively promote the plans of the day by assisting and di recting the children in planting trees. This occasion offers to instructors of the youth an excellent opportunity to,explain the national conservation movement, which during the past few months has been brought squarely and emphatically before the American people, especially the portion which relates to the nreservatlon nf our for ests, to reforestration and to the im measurable value of tree-culture to present and future generations.
