ported that the penitentiary authori
ties have offered to plant and main
tain trees from the penitentiary to
Montezuma avenue, there to connect
with the Boulevard already planted
by the Board of Trade from the de
pots to the Plaza. It was also ex
plained that the penitentiary authori
ties would construct a sidewalk the
-entire distance, asking merely that
the property owners pay for the brick.
The committee was instructed and
-authorized to purchase the trees next
spring and to have them boxed and
praise for the public vplrltedness of
the present penitentiary management
was expressed.

part by the New Mexican Printing

that a new depot is being erected at
Santa Fe while another one has been
constructed at Lamy,, and asking for
the speedy rebuilding of the Harvey
Tiouse at Lamy.

considerable attention, W. F. Owen,
and Mayor Jose D. Sena, asking that
the Board of Trade join in a move
ment that will result with eliminating
the practice of distributing the road
iund among precinct supervisors in
stead of applying it to one good roads
project and pushing it to completion.

work that Governor Curry and Mayor
Sena are doing for roads in Santa
Fe county and the fact that the board

Revision of Tariff

Secretary Dickinson Issues
Stringent Orders to
I Washington, D. C. July 17. The
j statement of the President yester-
day that he considered that the Re
publican platform aud the people as
ultimatum, some regard it as a
barely concealed threat to veto if the
bill reached him in a form as to be un
faithful to the propiises of the party.
Others regard the statement as a club
to reduce the opposition to downward
revision and to shorten the long
fight. It is believed that the Presi
dent's statement will have a profound
effect on both the conference com
mittee and the House of Congress.
No Trust Goods for Soldiers.
Washington, D. C, July 17. The

Outlook Is Dark.
Washington, D. C, July 17. "Do
you happen to know." asked one of
, the Senate tariff conferees on the wav
t0 the meeting today, "whether the
President's attitude regarding the tar
iff is correctly reported in the pa
pers this morning? The question!
was addressed to a newspaper man
who assured the Senator that there
itl no douibt that the. President is cor-
i rectly represented. . .The Senator was
1 evidently much depressed and uncer
tain as, to the outlook. "Then." he
said, "the outlook is discouraging in
deed. While it is not stated in so
many words, the President will de
mand free raw material, such is the
tendency and if such should be the
demand, it looks impossible to set a

Reduction on Dress Goods.

Washington, D. C., July 17. The

Than Ever
I Filled With Enthusiasm Re
garding the Future Pros
pects of Santa Fe.
After an absence from the city of
six weeks, during which time he set
tled all bifsiuess and persoual affairs
In Chicago, President G. Franklin
Flick of the U. S. Bank and Trust
Company has returned to Santa Fe
where he will now make his perma
nent home. While iu Chicago he was
greatly surprised at the amount of ac
tivity in preparation for the National
Irrigation Congress which is to take
place in that city in the fall.' Said
"The coming National Irrigation
Congress is going to be an affair of
unusual magnitude and the people of
Chicago are working hard and in
cessantly to make the affair a grand
success. It is to be under the auspi
ces of the Chicago Association of
Commerce. This body consists of
over three thousand members and
every line of business is well repre
sented. As a result of the prepara
tions going on, the southwest is at
tracting unusual attention and un
questionably the Congress will aid
the southwest to a wonderful extent.
Of late capital has been directing its
attention to this section of the coun
try. More interest is aroused now
than I have ever witnessed before.
It is estimated by the railroads that
every two weeks sees ten thousand
people leave Chicago for the great
southwest, going as. settlers or seek
ing good investment and a chance to
use capital to advantage. That this
westward tendency will even grow
greater I am certain. Irrigation pro
jects appear to be the main attracting
feature and as such opportunities
greatly abound in this Territory it
can readily be seen what a future
lies before us here. I have met also
with frequent inquiries about mining
Conditions in this section but as I
have stated, irrigation matters afford
better inducement.
It has been a source of great grati
fication to me to note the steady im
provement in Santa Fe. Here I in
tend, to make my future home and
my faith is limitless in the abund
ance of opportunity that it at our
very door. I believe of course in a
conserative growth and am greatly
opposed to an inflated and exaggerat
ed boom that is always bound to re
act to the detriment of the city. That
sufficient capital can be secured to
develop all the various projects in
this vicinity, I am thoroughly con
vinced. All that is needed is
sufficient outside advertising.".
Mr. Flick has made arrangements
to take the house belonging to Judge
Laughlin during the latter's absence
in Europe. Later on he will secure
a home of his own.
Assertion That
They Behaved As
Harry Payne Whitney Chal
lenged to Make Good
His statements.
New York, July 17. The charges
made by Harry Payne Whitney of
the American Polo team at a banquet
in London that the conduct of the
American Olympic team last year was
disgraceful, created a storm of pro
test here. James E. Sullivan, U. S.
commissioner to the games makes a
denial. "Whitney is not in position
to know the American athletes," said
Sullivan. "We met opposition of
every sort, fair and unfair, that the
English officials could devise and had
to fight for our rights which any oth
er country would .have insisted on
giving the visiting athletes. I was
present all the time and failed to see
anything In the conduct of our boys
warranting the charges of Whitney.
If he makes specific charges I will
see them answered and prove him
Feeling Is Very
Bitter in Smoky
Leaders Order Workmen
, to Mick Close to Their
Pittsburg, Pa., July 17. Although
the strikers feel great animosity at
the refusal of President Hoffstott of
the Pressed Steel Car Company to
receive a delegation of strikers, un
der any consideration, the strike
leaders have issued orders for the
strikers to stick close to their homes
today. A meeting of strikers is sched
uled late this afternoon to ask the
mayor and city officials to put an
end to the strike or force arbitration.
Effort will also be made to finance
the strike for an extended period.
There was a brief battle last night
during an attempt to land a con
signment of cots for non-union men
within the stockade.
In the riot the women with babies
on one arm and a brick or a piece of
slag in the other hand, outstripped the
men in ferocity. The committee of
the Building Trades Council of the
Federation of Labor issued a state
ment saying that conditions at the
plant are intolerable and is asking
financial aid from the general public
for the strikers. Rioting broke out
yesterday at the plant of the Stand
ard Steel Car Company at Lyndora,
and a fierce battle occurred this
morning between American workmen
and foreigners. The constabulary
were sent for but all are occupied at
McKee's Rock.
The office force was attacked on its
way to work this morning and driven
back to the ferry boat by the strikers.
Fourteen strike leaders was arrested.
The company is preparing to resume
operations with as many men as pos
sible.' ' '
"No Vote. No Husband, is to Be
Slogan of Suffragettes of Chi-
cago and Spokane.
Spokane, Wash., July 17. "No vote,
no husband" is the slogan of 250 girls
of marriageable age who have just or
ganized the College Equal Suffrage
Club of Spokane, under the presidency
of Mrs. Z. W. Comeford. Each has
taken a solem vow to convert her
suitor to womans' rights before enter
ing upon an engagement."
The plan to enlist Cupid into the
ranks as an ally was originated by a
half dozen timid members, who, after
several conferences, persuaded Mrs.
Coraerford to launch the movement
and recruit the membership to 500
before the beginning of September.
This does not mean that the meth
ods introuced by Mr. Adam when he
first met Miss Eve are .to be barred
here, but that the valiant knight must
break customs instead of lances and
gain for his lady love the privilege to
cast her ballot if he is to have the
wealth of satisfaction in his game of
"While our members are not going
to be quite as radical as the Chicago
girls," said Mrs. Comerford, "there
will be absolutely no encouragement
to those who do not believe in the suf
fragists' cause. We expect to start a
school of conversion. The girls will
not be pledged to refuse a suitor, who
is not a suffragist, but it is expected
that every member will promise to use
her best endeavors to win the man
for us.
"It is pretty well understood among
those who are in earnest in this cam
paign that the man who la open to
conviction on the matter of equal $uf
rage will be the on who Is to en
counter the least difficulty in winning
his suit. That, we believe, is one of
the strong points in our campaign.
"Poltical economy will be another
feature. We intend . to take up all
the problems just as men . do, and
there will be debates and discussions
at our regular meetings. It may be
that these will eventually work them
selves into public meetings and will
be one of the factors in suffragists'"
work in Spokane and throughout the
state of Washington. ;
"We have practically all the suf
ragists in Spokane lined up in the
work, rnd it may be we shall extend
the campaign throughout other parts
of the country, and in this we believe
we have the best plan of conversion
that has yet been devised.' ; ;
"In this connection' we shall make
an attempt to enlist every unmarried
