The action of Prince filing, the regent t.f the Chi nese empire, In accepting today on bf half of the throne the- draft of a new constitution for China, is consid ered to show his willingness to grunt any demand of the people, which is supported by arms. An edict istsued today by the tlone accepts a preliminary constitution drawn up at a single sitting; of an assembly which rtfuscd U) permit its membership those appointed by the throne to participate in the debate. "The country has gone mad," said a prominent diplomat to the Associ ated Press today, "and only a strong; dictator will save It.

WONDERFUL PRESENCE OF MIND SAVED HIM Accident Blasted Hope of His Completing Last Lap of CoasMo-Coast Flight By Yesterday Evening, (Bv Morning Journal Bpertal I. wined Wire Imperial Juncton, Cab, Nov. 3. I'nless unforseen difficulties develop Cnlhralth perry Rogers, transconti nental aviator, virtually will end his long flight from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast Sunday afternoon when he arrives in Pasadena. Rogers' hour of departure front this place depends largely upon how soon his mechanicians can adjust the magneto and motor. It is expected he will resume his flight on Sunday morning for the western coast and land at one of the beach titles. This will be the termination of the great est long distance flight across coun try by aeroplane that the world has known, and Rodgers as the first to cross the American continent will win immortality among the pioneer pilots of the air. When Kodcers started at 7:30 this morning from Stovall Siding, Ariz., with but a trifle over 300 miles be tween him and the Pacific coast, there was every reason to believe that he would make his goal, or at least very near to It by evening. Two hours later he was fighting for hl lire, 4,000 feet in the air above the Salton sea. Uodgers escape was nothing short of providential. His m'.tor was a complete wreck, but he volplaned four miles ami landed In front of the depot here. He was flying at the rate of 75 miles an hour, when without an Instant's warning the cylinder ex ploded, tearing out the crank cnne. bending the shaft nnil ttlnlng the magneto. Several pieces of flying metal passed perilously near.'o the aviator's heul. ' . Rodgerg Immediately "warped" his machine and with u circle of two 'miles in diameter, started a spiral glide to earth. His landing was as graceful as It was easy. A few rail road men were the only ones who witnessed the descent and they help ed to place the aeroplane upon a pile of ties in order to lift it from the ground.- When the special train following Rodgers arrived, three mechanics nt once began work on the engine. It was necessary virtually to rebuild the motor, and all the matetlnl available was the remains of this one, and the one wrecked at Kyle, Tex., October 20. For n. time It seemed as If re pairs could be made In time for a Ftart lat today, but this plan, later was abandoned, and the mechanics announced if they could repair the ti'otor In time for a start. Sunday, thev would do well. When Rodgers reached Imperial Junction he had flown from 4.033 miles in 4,703 minutes. In other words, the actual time he has put In from Sheepshead Ray, X. Y to Im perial Junction is three days, six hours and twenty-three minutes, Clemente Castillo Standing Pat The Morning Journal some time ago told the people of New Mexico the story of Clemente Castillo, who, ufter filing on a little ranch In Socorro county, was asked and forced by Mr. Hiirsiini, to "move on," as Mr. Rursum wanted "all the land around." "We are going to be a state now," said Mr. Rursum, "and I am going to get all the land around you, so it won't do you any good If you do hold your claim. " Since the publication of that story which has never been denied Clemente Castillo has been approached time and again by emissaries nnd friends of H. O. Hiirsiini and Solomon Luna. The Morning Journal has posi tive Information to this effect. They have tiled bulldozing and Intimidation, coaxing and pleading with him to sign a statement denyng the story. He has persistently refused. Threats have been used; hut they have fulled to bluff this sturdy native citizen even though he is not a rich politician. The Morning Journal will give the fullest publicity to every attempt mnde hereafter to bulldoze this man or to punish hlin for his obstinacy. We serve warning on Mr. Dorsum and Mr. Luna that In case another attempt Is made we shifll publish the names in full. Already a promhient citizen of Magdalena hns gone to Castillo with an af fidavit already made out. A prominent jurist had a complete statement, type written, which was presented to Castillo for his signature. He refused. He has refused other similar advances, threats and cajoling, lie is one of the men In Socorro county who cannot be bluffed. TI1IC TIM K HAS PASSKU IN NEW MEXICO WHEN POLITICIANS CAN FOROI-: HOMKSTKADKUS to "move The time has passed In New Mexico when the llut'sum-Luna-llnhhell ring Is to be a preferred selector of public lands. The. time has passed when an un scrupulous aggregation of bosses can threaten and bulldoze and persecute cllizens who stand on their rights ns Americans. The era of opposition is past. Even If Mr. ISursum and Mr. Luna whip Clemente Castillo into line with those peculiar and Ingenious "third degree" methods, which have made their gang notorious, it will avail them nothing. The doom of the land grabbing ring, which drives settlers from the pub lie lands, Is sealed. It is the Clemente Castlllos and not the Rursunis, who develop a state. These men must be unceremoniously thrown out of power In order to assure the progress and prosperity of the new state of New Mexico.

O. llursum In his speech at the Klks' theater Thursday night at tempted to explain a number of things, There were a number of things he did not explain nor deny. Mr. Rursum did not refer to the-mutter of hit connection with the ring, which Is seeking to control the lion's share of the public domain In tho new state to the exclusion of the small settler. He did not tell us about the case of Clemente Castillo, or whether he forced lilrn to "move on," because there was no room for him. He failed to make any statement regarding the case of the registration certificate dated back at a Socorro county election. He failed to mention the case of Henry Dreyfus, his candidate for sheriff, and his Insult to the American flag; or to tell whether Dreyfus owes him $-,40l). He failed to shed any light .on the shielding from Justice of Wllllnm E. .Martin. He lulled to state whether or not him superintendent of the penitentiary. He failed to state whether or not $3,480 to Mr. Martin for "deputies." He lulled to explain, Pi h Illuminating manner, the nmtler of the $4,000 Mogollon road, "not fit for a hurro to He failed to state whether or not (lidate for commissioner, was removed, He failed to state that, after the fore any demand was made on him, he treasurer, with a letter, saying the money had beon'etalned "through error." He failed to tell whether he pushed through the infamous Springer si hod visiting bill, which, as first drafted, would have looted the territory of $!t,000 per annum and which enabled Don Francisco Huldiell to get money for four hundred days of school visits In two hundred days. He failed to explain why he told Governor Otero that It would "hurt the party" if the governor vetoed house bill No. ISO, violating the Raloman net and which would have robbed the taxpayers of thousands of dollars. He failed to slate whether the Clever Mr. Safford, referee in the peniten tiary case, was a, personal and political friend of himself and secretary of the state political organization of which Rursum was chairman. He failed to explain whether he sold sheep to the penitentiary, while warden, In violation of the law. He failed to explain how Mr. Safford was allowed to lake the prison ) books out of the prison in violation of He failed to state whether Mr. Safford submitted all the books he removed from the prison, with his report to the court. He failed to say w hether or not the Judge In whose court he was "v Indi cated." was a personal anil political friend of himself.

Ho failed to deny the allegation that he promised to pardon a convict If certain persons In Socorro county would voto "rlghi," some years ago.

He failed to deny the ( barge made In the expert report that he purchased supplies for the prison at grossly exorbitant figures. There are various and sundry oilier things that Mr. Rursum failed to majie clear; and the Inevitable conclusion Is, that Mr. Hiirsiini left more things unexplained (him he explained.

Former Governor Electrifies MamnJbth Audience at Las Crucjs When He Cites Spe cific Instances of Dishonesty, BOSSES ABANDON FIGHT ,. IN DONA ANA COUNTY Realizing Hopelessness of Giv ing Bursum a Majority, They Concentrate Efforts to Save Legislative Ticket. rttpeHal ninpstrh to th Mornlnc Jos mull Las Cruees. N. M Nov. 3. Former Governor Herbert J. Hiigerman. Hon. Richard 11. Hanna and Hon. Felix Mnrtlnes, spoke here tonight to a magnificent audience which. In view of the fact that Capt. McDonald spoke last night to an audience of more than twelve hundred people, Indicates that Dona Ana county Is stirred as never before. The republican bosses have lost all hope of carrying the county for Uur sum, and are now concentrating all their efforts to save the legislative ticket, or as much of It as possible. Delegate William H. Andrews visit ed here the first of the week, and. It Is said, left two thousand dollars to be used exclusively for the benefit of the republican candidates for the legislature. So far as known, only one change has been mado and that cost one hundred dollars, according to rumor. That the republican bosses have a large slush fund Is evidenced by the otters of sums ranging from ten dol lars to one hundred dollars for Indi vidual workers at the polls on elec tion day, but they are having poor success, even at such large figures. The people appear aroused to the fact that their future wclfaro Is nt stake and must not be made a matter of barter and sale. Governor Hagerman took up the charge against H. o. ltursum und made a most convincing speech, show ing that Rursum had returned niuncy lo Ihe treasury after he had kept part of it for seven years and part of It for four years; and that ltursum dis covered these shortages himself and returned the money voluntarily, hut only after he knew an expert Investi gation was In progress. He spoke of the Safford whitewash and alleged that Judge Parker had said before thq Investigation hi'gan that Rursum was Innocent. ' Safford, In a recent published state ment, admitted that he hud told Hag erman that he knew Rursum was not a thief, showing that both Parker and Safford had Judged the ease be fore having Investigated It, said the speaker. Mr. Hagerman defied them to get a statement from Attorney General Frank W. Clancy, their own candidate for attorney general, In which he would say that he regarded Safford'a report as other than partisan and pre judicial In favor of Rursum; or that If Mr. Clancy had been the Judge In tho case, he would have accepted such a report In his court. Mr. Hagerman said Mr. Safford Is beyond a doubt "an accountant who knows how to whitewash his friends." It was Mr Safford's duty, he said, to xamliie the accounts of William K. Martin, clerk of the Third district ourt, about three times a year. For several years he gave Mr. Martin a clean bill of Ilea lib. Ho completely vindicated Martin probably twenty times, said the speaker, but It requir ed only a short time for Speclul Agent DeWoody to find Mr. Martin several thousand dollars short In his accounts. Mr, Safford had before him the same books that were had by Mr. DeWoody, but he could find nothing wrong with Mr. Bursuni'y "Man Friday." Mr. Hagerman said Mr, Martin had been found guilty of two charges of embezzling money lo the amount of several hundred dollars In each case. Judge Wright, now Mr. llursum's can didate for the supreme court, fined Mr. Martin one hundred dollars in one case and one dollar In the other, said Mr. Hagerman, and then remitted the lines In both cases. Mr. Hagerman charged Judges Parker nnd Wright, now candidates on the Rursum ticket, with partiality toward Rursum and his "Man Fri day." Mr. Hagerman said: "Rut, return ing to Mr. Safford, who vindicated Rursum and who never could find anything1 wrong- In the accounts of Martin, let ine call attention to how lie vindicated A. M. liergcre, clerk of the court at Santa Fc, brother-in-law of Solomon I. ana. "liergcre was clerk for u long time, and Mr. Kn fiord examined his ac eolinta about three times a year for nine or ten vears and gave him a clean bill of health each time. Rut It did not take ormshy Mdlarg long to find Ri rgorc short in bis accounts lo the tune of al I $13. 0011, With such n record for vindicating friends of bosses, is it any wonder, askoit Mr, llageimati, "lhal he was able to devise u way lo whitewash tho boss himself?" ' , Mr. Hngerman in closing, stated that he had spoken in twelve coun ties und to twenty-five audiences and that everywhere he had found repub licans in large numbers who have de cided to vole for McDonald and tho democratic ticket ami In view of his observations he confidently predicted W. C. McDonald's election as gov ernor by he largest plurality ever received by any candidate In New Mexico. Mr. Hannu made a brilliant address In which he recited the history of a. number of candidates on tho repub lican state ticket nnd showed that it Rursum is to be Judged by. the. com- 1
