ANCIENT CAPITAL 5101 CENTER Official Proclamation of Gover nor Mills Ordering Election Expected to Witness Real Op ening of Campaign, BOTH GREAT PARTIES PREPARE FOR STRUGGLE Believe Conventions Will Be Held and Tickets Placed in Field Before End of SeDtem ber No Dearth of Candidates Special DUpntch to the Morning Journal 1 Santa Fe, N. M Auk. 27. Wlth the arrival late Satuduy evening of the ofticial notification from tho president enipowerinK Governor Mills to vail the. state election, politi cal activity in the capital took on new life. It is understood that tomorrow Governor Mills will issue his formal proclamation calling the election for Tuesday, November 7, Both the republican uncr demo cratic state central committees ure to meet next week and it Is expected that the calls for the state conven tions sill be Issued at these meetings. Jhe, republican committee meets in Santa Fe next Monday, September 4, while the democrats meet Tuesday In Albuquerque. It Is generally believed that both great parties will hold their conven tions and have their candidates in the field before the last of September. This will make the campaign an ex ceedingly short one, but what It lacks in length it is probable will be made up In excitement. Nor will excite ment be lacking in the pre-conven-thm struggle. There are candidates fmni both parties in plenty lor every position. Santa Fe county alone has rand Ida tea : for every place on the state ticket from governor to land commissioner, besides having two or three ajpiiuntd -for the L'uKeJ States senatorships and us many for con gressman. For corporation commis sioner there are already thirty candi dates in the field. As the constitu tion provides for the election of only three corporation commissioners, it can readily be seen that not n few gentlemen are doomed to be disap pointed. For governor on the repub lican ticket, State Chairman Rursuin, former Governor (Hero and Secretary Nathan Jaffa are the most prominent of those mentioned although there i are a number of others. Mr. Otero Is making an active canvass for the sup port of his friends, while the other ' two gentlemen are more or less re ticent. Resides being mentioned as i a candidate for governor, Secretary , Jaffa is being boomed by his friends ; In eastern New Mexico nnd elsewhere aa one of the numerous candidates for I'nked States senator.. j It is not unlikely that there will be ' a strenuous fight in the legislature for the two United States senator- Ehlps. Among the men most promi nently mentioned for the positions are Delegate in Congress Andrews, Governor Mills, National Committee man Solomon T.nno Charles Mnrlncnr. former Judge A. B. Fall and former i Delegate Thomas H. Catron, although j not nil of these gentlemen are as yet willing tn admit that they are candi dates. All have been prominent in the councils of the republican party for years anil all have strong following, w that the legislature will not have to waste any time hunting for avail able senatorial timber. Former Governor Curry is a can didate for the republican nomination for congress, and it Is said that Unit ed States District Attorney Leahy has ambitions In the same direction. Several other gentlemen, more or less Prominent In the ranks of both par ties, have Indicated a willingness to erve their country In the popular "ranch of congress. Under the terms of the enabling act New Mexico will elect two members of the present congress. The re-apportionment miasuro, which provides for one member each from New Mexico and VoT;1"1"' does not take effect until 1913.

In November of '' It win be necessary for New Mexico to elect a single congressman Blll will tuke his seat at the regular "won in December. 1913.

MURDEREFSEEKS Youth Who Threw Girl Over board From Lake Steamer Plans to Starve to Death in Prison Cell, - fBy Morning Journal nndnl I-eaaad Wlra-l Grand Rapids, Mich., Aug. 27. Determined, he says, to cheat Im prisonment, CIsurles Hopper of Chi cngo, who, on Saturday night, mur dered Dajsy Watts, also known ns Grace Lyons of Chicago,, by throwing her off a steamer in Lake Michigan, has absolutely refused to touch food or drink offered him in the county Jail at Grand Haven. The tragedy is one of the few mur ders committed on government in land waters In several years, and the charge of murder will be placed against ,'Iopper in the Grand Itapids federal court. The murder brought to light the tragic end of the life misspent In Chinese resorts in Chicago of the daughter oi a prominent Grand Rnp Ids family, according to the confes sion of Hopper. He deciured he com mitted the c rime to prevent the wom an from returning to the life of the underworld. The girl, however, was apparently fleeing from Hopper to re turn to her relatives in Michigan. Hopper said he first met the wom an about three years ago and fell in love with her, but she refused to marry him and they separated. Six months later, he said, he met her in a Halstead street Chinese resort. Ac cording to Ills story, sh$ then accept ed his offer of marriage and he took her from the place and they llvled together until recently. A week ago she disappeared and he traced her'to the tame Chinese resort where be found her smoking opium with ten Chinese. She le.''t the place with him, but they quarreled soon afterward, and on Saturday she left. He traced her to the bout and boarded it. Another scene resulted and the crime was committed.

TOCHEATGALLOWS BYSUICIDE MAIN 0 0 MEXICANS TD NAMEjLQNG LIST DF DEADiPICTURE THEATER L HOPE OF LADYLIKE CAMPAIGN ABANDONED Supoiters of Reyes and Madero Exchange Invective and Con test Promises to Be Marked By Unusual Bitterness, Illy Morning Jttnuit Special 1.um4 Wire -Mexico City. Aug. 27. Francisco I. Madero will be formally nominated tomorrow for the presidency by dele gates representing 1,500 clubs in na tional convention of the progressive party, unless something unlhought of tonight occurs. To name the choice i of the convention for vice president is by no means so simple. Today the credentials of the dele gates were examined and the prelimi nary work of organizing the conven tion was done but the serious part of the program is fixed for tomorrow. Toniuht no names but that of Ma dero is suggested lor the presidency, but four nanus will doubtless be placed before the convention lor the vice presidency. Dr. Francisco Vas quez Gomez has retained many of his backers who will do their best to keep his name on the ticket. His most dangerous opponent appears to be Jose Pino Sttarez. Iglesias t'alderon, who recently or ganized the libera! party which noT appears ready to support Madero If given the vice presidency, is u candi date. Six parties and two or three other organizations with ambitions to at tain the dignity of that character, have appeared but It now seems cer tain that but three will have presi dential candidates In the race. The men will be Madero, General Hernardo Heyes and F.milio Vasquez Gomes. Today the campaign is getting un der full head of stetm. Convinced by the oft-reiterated statements that un due restrictions will not be imposed, the people are entering into the spirit of electioneering. Thousands paraded the streets today In honor of Meduro while other crowds helC meetings where speeches were made in favor of Heyes. The saloons were ordered closed and soldiers were stationed in various parts of the capital to aid the police in repressing any disorders, but th services of neither were required. U is not the -polite contest promised by flie conference of "Madero and A'yes tit Tehuacan. Madero has bitterly arraigned Heyes on the charge of fomenting discord among the peo ple by influencing the army, and Heyes has replied with scathing com ment. Partisans of both men and so far the race Is between them have Indulged in verbal and printed invec tive and accusation not frequently surpassed In an American campaign. Madero last night declared his be lief In his success and estimated that he would receive fir more than seventy-five per cent more votes than Reyes. Supporters of Madero Insist that his real strength lies in the country. In many of the small towns the people scarcely know the name of anv other candidate. DECISION OF INTEREST TO ALL BANKRUPTS Washington, Aug. 27. F,tm the swampB of Onslow county North Car olina, has come forth a legal prob lem for the federal supreme court to pass upon when It convenes in Octo ber. The decision may aifect bank rupts in all parts of the country. Shorn of legal phraseology, the ques tion is" When Is a thing concealed?" John L. James was a storekeeper in Onhlow county previous to February 8, 1908, when a petition of involun tary bankruptcy was filed against him. Nothing unusual developed un til James asked for his discharge from bankruptcy. Just two months and three days he fore the bankruptcy petition was filed, he had been charged with Hid ing In a swamp In Onslow county five caddies of tobacco, one case of gunshells, two trunks of shoes and some dry goods, with Intent to de fraud his creditors. The law would not grant his dis charge, if at any time subsequent to the first day of the four months Im mediately preceding the filing of the petition he had "concealed" any of his property with fraudulent intent towards his creditors. The circuit court of appeals de cided that although the goods were placed In the swamp three days more than four months before the prescrib ed tlmo, there was "continuous con cealing" because without further action by James, the offense repeat ed itself every day until ho disclos ed the hiding place, which was al leged to have been January 5, 1908. It is said the supreme court never has passed on the question of wheth er there Is such an offense within the meaning of the bankruptcy laws as a "continuous concealing." For this reason the court was asked to pass upon the petition. Decision as to whether it will re view the case Is expected October 10.

HORROR DUE TO BASELESS FEAR FRIGHTENED BOY CAUSED HORRIBLE CATASTROPHE Bright Light Suddenly Flashed On Darkened Screen Start ed Wild Panic Which Cost Twenty-six Lives, (By Morning Joarmal Bpadal Iwri Win Canonsburg, Pa., Aug. 27. Twenty Fix persons were suffocated or trampled to death, twenty-flvo were seriously Injured and thirty were less severely hurt last night, in the sense less panic at a moving picture show in the Canonsburg opera house, accord ing to revised figures compiled to night. How foolish the panic was, de veloped fully today, when those in volved returned to their senses enough to relate Just what occurred. It transpired that there was no fir. The fatal rush for tho exit was due alone to baseless fear. It developed that not even a spark flashed. The film broke with a snapping and a bright light was thrown on the screen. A frightened boy Imagined it was fire and unconsciously shouted out the death knell of more than a score of persons ns he started to rush for the exit, llulus Dubrowskl. a huge miner. Jumped from his seat and ran wildly for the same exit. In a moment there was fight, strug gling mass after him. At the head of a narrow stairway, which leads to the street, the miner tripped. As he rolled down the stairs he swept from their feet many per sons who were waiting their turn to enter the theater and soon there was a horrible pile of women nnd child ren and ti few men at the foot of the steps. Dubrowskl was probably the first person killed. It was ull over in a short tlmo. The stairway was Jammed full from the top to the bottom, nnd those behind could not get out. Tho unhurt and those slightly Injured were pulled from the top of the pile. As they rained the street they ran screaming like maniacs to all parts of the town. The seriously Injured were sent home or taken to nearby houses. As the sil ent forms of those who had been suf focated or crushed were dlsentnngel ed, the victims, many of them women and small children, were piled on the sidewalk. Coroner JamnB T. Hoffman has be gun a rigid investigation. He nrrlved at the scene early today and within n short time had selected a Jury. Measurements taken by the Jurors showed tile stairway leading to the second floor of the building, the main floor of the opera house to bo only six and one half feet wide, while the doorway at the bottom Is not more than eight feet high. It Is customary for the manage ment of the theater to give two or three performances each evening, and Saturday the moving phture operator' wus about to complete the show when a film exploded. Dubrowskl' wild flight through the theater und bis subsequent stumble down the stairs Info those entering the building, was the beginning of the death struggling Jam at the foot of the stairs. When the doorway had been filled up, still other persons walked over the bodies of those who lut ti gone down and breaking the glass transom over the door, crawled through nnd dropped Into the street. Manager Ferguson tried to btop the panic. Accompanied by his wlfo, he started for the stairs when tho first alarm was given, but seeing there was no escape there, he made his way to the stage, Calling loudly to the frightened people to follow him, he led the way to the rear of the stage and hundreds went out that way. In ton minutes the opera house was emp ty and in half an hour twenty bodies bad been recovered. Physicians came from the town and from nearby places until thirty-five were at work. Of the twenty-six dead, thirteen were children. Arthur MePeake, whose name Is among the dead, was outside of the building when ' the bodies began to pile up nt the door. The man rushed to tho rescue and was dragging a body Vrom the pile when a man came hurling; out the transom. He struck MePeake on tho back ii tid the young man's neck wns broken. Sydney Itlttlnger wns at the show with his fiancee, Miss Lulu Flslie, Re foro entering the building they had stopped nt a Jewelry store nearby, and Itlttlnger had bought the ring that was to have been used at their wed ding. Hoth were killed. Among tile murt seriously Injured is Mrs. Minnie Lemon, of Lnwrencevlllo, III., who was visiting friends at Hous ton, near here. Mrs. Lemon was a spectator at the show and was caught In the crush. Tonight physicians be lieve that her mind Is affected on account of tho harrowing ex periences. Mrs. Lemon Is a the Canonsburg hospital and cries almost continuous to be saved. K I It A ISCO OPFIt ATOIt PATAU. Y 111 ltM,l IV IMKrTII Han Francisco, Aug. 27.
