the Republican County Organization; Barefaced Attempt to

Tlie New Mexico State Central Committee has deliberately vio

ject .o their orders and declined for
that reisoii to place h!s resignation In
the hands o' tlds committee. Then
desiring to obtain Inrmony in the
party of .!,! count . the committee
desired to proposed to Mr. Cillenwater
as a method of settlement of the dis
putes, that he continue as chairman
of the committee until the county
convention; that the committee should
consist of the original members of the
committee as It stood on the 2th day
of January, 1911, with power to fill
all vacancies caused by death or res
ignation: that the committee should
permit Mr. tiiiicnwater to continue as
such chairman, and the question as
to who shall finally be recognized as
chairman should be determined by
the delegates of the county conven
tion selected by the republican voters
of the several precincts. Upon In
quiry of Mr. Ulllenw'er he refused
to sg."e,. to auch a prpoiltlon.
After a public hearing this torn
rri'tci went into executive session and
consldi-rcd all of the -vidcnr. affi
davits and exh bits offered, and came
tj tho follow im: cf'iicii'sii'ps:
First -Tii.n cn the ?Stl dav of
January, 1911. W. H. Cillenwater
was the duly elected, acting and rec
ognized chairman of the republican
county central committee of Hernal
lllo county, having been elected by
the members of the committee as
such chairman subsequent to the
county convention In S90S; That
there was conflicting evidence Intro
duced as to whether or not Mr. Oll
Inewater and his committee were con
tinued In effect as a permanent com
mittee by a resolution offered t tho
convention for the nomination Of del
egates to the constitutional conven
tion held in August, 1910.
Second That from all of the evi
dence introduced we are unable to
determine just what was the action
of such ((invention of August, 1910.
Third That on the l!th day of
January, 1911, t a meeting of the
Hernallllo county central committee
called by a majority of the then mem
bers of the committee W, 11. Uilleii
ivater was removed as chairman of
the republican county central com
mittee of Bernalillo county and Ed
ward A. Mann elected in his place.
, Fourth That while your commit
tee does not approve of the manner
of giving notice of the holding of
sdeh meeting, because such practices
tend to promote discord and dissatis
faction tn the republican party, yet
w find that there was n majority of
the committee as then constituted
'present ut such meeting, either in
person or by proxy, and that more
than a majority of the committee as
it then exUfcl voted to unseat Mr.
OUIrriVHter a'ln to Beat Kdward A.
Mann as Omit man; and we further
find tha4. on the 4th day of February
such action was ratified by more than
a ma.iorily of the 1m n living members
of the committee.
Fifth Wo furtlur find that since
said 28th day of lanuary, two of the
original .netnbois if the committee
have died, and that two more have
resigned resigning to Kdward A.
Mann, na chairman. In view of the
controversies which have arisen, we
think It for tho lest Interest of party
harmony thnt the appointments made
to fill the nbove mentioned four va
cancies be Set uslde, and the sami are
set aside.

Chiasso, SwitxerUnd. Sept. 9.
Cloa Del Colle a city with a popula
tion of 211.000 in the Italian irovlnce
of Rarl Ie La Pugll, has been the
scene of aavage excesses In conse
quence of the cholera epidemic now
raging In Italy.
The authorities ordered that all
persons attacked by cholera should
be taken to a hospital and that those
who had been In contact with cholera
victims lie isolated In a neighboring
building. The population convinced
that it was the intention of the au
thorltles to kill the patients and also
those under observation, gathered to
the number of several hundred, to
liberate their relatives and friends.
The hospital was stormed and the
building threatened with Incendiary
destruction, should the mob be In
terefed with In releasing the cholera
stricken people.
The police attempted to awe the
crowds but were unsuccessful. The
crowds brought out the cholera
stricken patients and carried them
through the streets.
The Italian government has dis
patched troops to the scene.
Scenes Mimilur to those witnessed at
(lioa de Colle are also ir ported from
Massafra, a town In the Italian pro
vince of Lecce.
While the municipal council of I.ec
ce was in session today discussing the
best measures for combatting the
cholera, thousands of demonstrants
howling "death,'' "death," gathered
about thu city haH. TN mayor and
councillors suspended the meeting and
escaped from the building. The mob
then moved toward the cholera hos
pital, keeping up a running fight with
the police, who were unable to stop
the marching crowd. Heveral police
men snd Home of the . townspeople
were dangerously Injured.
The mob entered the hospital, and
after carrying the patients out com
menced to smash the furniture, later
setting fire to the building. The pa
tients, some of them lir a dying con
dition, were carried triumphantly
through the streets. The general be
lief of the people is that the doctors

A mad crowd attacked the hospital
and overthrew barricades erected

smashed in the doors with ease. When
further resistance was impossible, the
doctors and nurses escaped from rear
windows by ropes, but were pursued

and one of the doctors was dangerous-

the police and carbineers olteieii on

Subjects to Be Discussed.
(By Moralaf Joaraal Spertal Laa Win.)
Heverly. Mass., Sept. 9 President
Taft Is going west to educate the
country. His 13, 000 mile "swing
around the circle" that begins next
Friday and winds up forty-six days
later. Is to be marked as little us pos

ernment as he can make it. The presi
dent Intends t.i deliver a personal
message to the thousands) who will
heT him speak. He told callers at
Parramatta today that the trip will
afford i.im little opportunity for po
litical speech-making aside from his
live or fix announced set addresses
The rest of the trip will lie as educa
tional s he can make it. To the si t
tpeech of the trip, the president to
day added :nore than a doxen general
subjects and this list may be In
creased. Two of the subjects, the pres
ident discussed today with callers were
those of uniform divorce laws and
trusts, particularly with reference to
the supreme court's Standard Oil
and Tobacco company decisions.
On the question of marriage and dl
voce the president has very decided
rnnvlctlons, which have been greatly
strengthened by the numerous recent
separations between well known peo
ple. The president believes that
person who has been divorced In on
state should not be allowed to re
marry In another state. He regard
re-ir.nrrlages In such cases as bigamy
and Is of the opinion that through like
legislation In all the stales they can
be prevented. The president's position
with regard to tho standard oil and
Tobacco decisions was explained by
him In a speech at the Vale com
mencement exercises In Juno and he
probable will expand upon the Ideas
there expressed. He thinks the deci
sions are good and remarked then
that business should find In them a

president said today will take In all
sorts of governmental problems.
Speeches' on such subjects, the presi

tics can be confined to political or
