Nov. 4. With the state election but two days off, uc tlvity around headquarters hero about ceased today us far us Ecltter Insr literature ovr the territory Is ronocrni d, and the quiet tliut pre ceilt.4 tht battle of ballots has set in. Chairman A. A' Jones and Sec retary N. 11. Laughlin will remain on the Job, however, watching the situa tion closely and will take quick eU" to offset any eleventh hour move op tin- opposition. 'lhl uiaj i e UiUo by the republicans to win in this elec tion can only If mussed at, but from reports that have been received It Is certain that tiey will bend every effort to win by fair means or oth erwise. As to democratic prospects. Chair man Jones is preparing a statement in which be estimates that W. C. Mc Donald will be elected by 5,000 ma jority, but that he would not be sur prised if the majority ran beyond thai, one to uie slient vote the vote of men who have the interests of the state at heart and although life long republicans, will not stand idlv by and fe-e the new state deliverei Into the hands of the men the re publicans have nominated. From information that has been re ceived h now seems evident that many hundreds of men who have not taken an active part in thq campaign, and who have rod publicly expressed thi-niff Ives, will vote for' McDonald and the candidates on 'the democrat ic state ticket. It is the extent of this vote which leads Chairman Jones t; believe that the majority for the democratic nominee for governor will even pass the five thousand ma jority which seems sure. It is con ceded on nil sides that McDonald will run aluad of the ticket, but reports Indicate that the entire ticket will bo curried into office on the democrat ic landslide which seems impending. In his statement Chairman Jones U1 probably concede only two coun ties to the republicans, namely, Hlo Arriba and Valencia, although there Is a possibility that this number may he Increased to four without Beriously affecting McDonald's majority of everal thousand. Never before have the democrats been to well organized as in the pres ent campaign and never before have members f the state-wide organiza tion, extending even to the most re mote precincts, been so actively at ork for the ticket. ' Last week in a statement publish ed in the republican newspapers all over the state, Bursum's majority was figured at about 10, 000. This eve ning the New Mexican again publish ed a forecast in which the republican majority is placed at 4,900. What, however, is believed to be the latest Inside figure from republican head quarters has come Into the hands of he democratic managers, which gives iursum a majority of only 800. It Is known that they are fearful of 'he r.sult, and while betting here for a few days past has been at even Huney, the amount of McDonald miv y In right is so large that the, odds are expected to break Monday 'nd when election day dawns it feeing probable that the McDonald 'ackers will have to put up three ""liars to win two. A few bets against the blue ballot have shown up, hut these were snap Vi up s0 quickly that no money ' "Mitist u,e amendment can be had nd It is conceded on all sides that he Hiio ndment will carry. lhH Popular uprising on all Bides Ponst the present) administration "id its attempt to perpetuate itself " P' Wer is raging like wild-fire In "any counties, and staid old Snndo always counted for a big repub '"n majority, will go for McDonald, '""'tiling to latest reports.

This circular says: "The county funds at this time are in deplorable shape; the fund for gen eral county purposes is worse than bankrupt, because many bills of our merch ants and others remain u-ipald. The court fund Is bankrupt. For the past three terms it has been impossible to hold a full term of court, because of lack of funds. Every other fund Is in equally deplorable condition. These are not campaign statements; they are hard facts."

Do you believe Joe Saint or the county records? In regard' to the expenses of the court, -the Item for "Interpreters" for the years 1909 and 1910, is $1,935.50. Practically all of this went to Nestor Monto'ya, editor of Frank Hubbell's Spanish newspaper and his right bower. The district attorney's fees' Item for the years 1909 nnd 1910, amounts to $5,600. THIS HAS GON E TO GEORGE S. KLDCK AND KDH AUD A. MANN. Owing to his brief tenure of office, Judge Mann, now part owner of the evening paper, with Mr. Joseph E.'Salnt, HE GOT ONLY $1,330 OF THIS AMOUNT. MR. HUBBELL'S TWO HENCHMEN, JUDGE MANN AND NESTOR MONTOYA, HAVE RECEIVED TOGETHER. OVER THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS OF THE COURT FUND IN TWO YEARS. These fees were perfectly legal. We are simply showing Mr. Hubbell, for his enlightenment, where several thousand dollars of the court fund went. The rest of the circular consists of lies fully as brazen and ridiculous.

While walking to work along the tracks of the Union Pacific railroad today, Henry C. Oots, 70 years old, was struck by a northbound passenger train and Instantly killed. During the civil war Oots served as first lieuten ant In Company 1, Fifth Kentucky Infantry. During the days when Francisco Hubbell had the judge on the bench and furnished the jurors In the district court here, a man from Rio Arriba county wua tried for the terrible crime of branding a small boy on the face and hands with a branding Iron, The mark of the red hot in strument of torture appeared in the middle of each cheek and on the palms of the hands. The defendant alleged that the boy had "fallen' 'on the hot branding irons In such a man ner that he was branded on both cheeks and both hands. The territory was aroused at this most Inhuman brutality. "Not guilty," said Mr. , Hub bell's jurors. "Call the next case," said Mr, Hubbell's Judge. "1 will not present any more cases," said the district attorney, "before this Jury or any of the Jurors empaneled for this term." DO YOU WANT TO RE STORE THAT KIND OK JUS TICE IN BERNALILLO COUN TY?

Washington, Nov. 4. New Mexico, Arlzonu and West Texas Generally fair Sunday and Monday. Do You Want to Turn the County Over, Lock, Stock and Barrel, to Frank A. Hubbell? To Put You Wise Don Francisco's eminent bfir- rlster has prepared a list of curefully fabricated falsehoods to be sprung on the unsuspecting public on election day. These are so preposterous and barefaced that It is hardly prob- able that any one will be taken in by them. Nevertheless, as the eminent barrister In his employ- er's paper last night warned the public against "roorbacks" from the forces of good government we think It Is Just as well to prepare the long-suffering pub- He for the eminent barrister's production. , Watch for It. You can tell the eminent barrister' Tum- many style, A word to the wise Is sufflcl- ent. Mr. Frank A. Hubbell, In his newspaper, has been pointing with pride, to R. It. Pollock, one of his candidates for county commissioner. He has Bold little about the other candidates, one of whom Is tinder Indictment for not keeping boys and girls out of his saloon. DID IT EVER OCCUR TO YOU THAT TWO IS A MAJORITY OK THREE? Granting that U. R. Pollock, a business associate of Don Francisco, Is a good citizen; Mr. Pollock Is only a figure head. Mr. Pollock Is the bait to catch the voters. THE COUNTY COMMISSION WILL CONSIST "K DAVID M. PEREA AND GABRIEL SANCHEZ. These men are absolutely owned by Frank A. Hubbell. It n well known that they arc now ami have been for yearn his subservient tools and are always at his se rvice, THE ELECTION OF THESE THREE MEN AS COUNTY COMMISSION ERS WILL MEAN THAT THE FINANCES OF BERNALILLO COUNTY ARE TURNED OVER ABSOLUTELY AND COMPLETELY TO FRANK A. injBBELL, How do you like the prospect, citizens of Bernalillo county; you who re member the looted school funds, the corrupt Justices of the peace, the $15,000 to $20,000 a year sheriff's fees, the floods, the Impassable roads, the ruined bridges, the raised assessments, the HIGHEST TAX RATE EVER KNOWN IN BERNALILLO COUNTY; the terrorism and the graft and the stolen elec tions and the debauchery? With the county commission, Mr. Hubbell can control the elections and can control the fees of every office. He can control the toad fund and the flood fund and the school fund; the general fund and the court fund. A burnt child dreads the lire. When Frank Hubbell's regime Glided, the business men of this city were left with tens of thousands of dollars of unpaid bills. They had been unpaid for a year or more. The business commissioners who now ask re-election, borrowed money and paid those bills. V fht-y paid the loans, nnd every bill since has been paid dollar for dollar. , DO YOU WANT TO GO BACK TO BANKRUPTCY? CLOSING Mil OF CAMPAIGN DRAWS HUGE AUDIENCE One Thousand Voters Jam Elks Theater to Hear Hagerman, Richardson, Kanna, Marron, Field and Sulzer, FIELD EXPOSES COURT'S WHITEWASH OF BURSUM Distinguished Albuquerque Lawyer Drops Bomb in Bosses' Camp When He Shows Up Judicial Vindication A magnificent outpouring of the people filled floor and gullery of the Elks' theater last night In the clos ing rally of the democrats and progressive-republicans. More than a thousand people listened to the speakers and cheered them to the echo. It was a meeting of the busi ness men, the professional men, the laboring men of thp city, gathered In a ureal, t'nthUHlastlt: mass meeting to testify to their Interest in the elec tion of an anti-llubhi.tl ticket In nor nallllo county and In the elucllon of an honest Stat, ticket. Hon. J, F. Sulzer, candidate for senator In the Shoo string district, presided and In his Introductory re marks said the district was created for the special benefit of Frank Hub bell, who expected to be the first senator nnd Mr. Sulzer regretted that Mr. Hubbell had deemed It pru dent not to offer himself us a can didate. While a member of the territorial legislation, Mr. Sulzer silid he had opposed a bill by Frank .Hubbell for the levy of a three mill tax on the people of Bernalillo county for the payment of many thousands of dol lars Mr. Hubbell claimed was due him. The bill wus passed, but Gov ernor Hagerman vetoed It. Mr. Sulzer then Introduced Former Governor Hagerman, who reached the city last night after a campaign tour of three weeks through the ter ritory, i Governor Hagerman said he hail found the people up In arms In all parts of the territory determined to overthrow the power of the machine that was responsible for the nomina tion of the ticket at Las Vegas. The speech made here by Mr. Bur sum was taken up by Governor Hag erman and It was punched full of big holes, showing inaccuracies of statementr, evasions and efforts to deceive the people. Governor Hngormnn closed his speech with a strong appeal to repub licans to support the democratic ticket this year In the Interest of decency and good government. Hon. O. A. Richardson, who has been In charge of the speaker's bur-, eau for the democratic state cam paign i imittee, here enrouto to Roswell to vote on election , rinv. wits Introduced and reported that In formation from every section of the state shows n. tremendous landslide for McDonald nnd the whole demo cratic ticket. Hon. 11. II. llanna, who has ac companied Governor Hagerman on his triumphal tour of the Mate, whs til,. 'next speaker. When he appeared on the stage be was greeted with pro longed cheers. Ills speech was a ter rifle arraignment of the candidates on the stand-pat republican party ticket, showing the records of them and their friends, lie also spoke of Mr. Bursum's advocacy of the Hawk Ins bill and bis lame attempt to evade responsibility therefor because at the time of Its passage he was not a member of the legislature or chair man of the republican territorial cen tral committee. Mr. lliinna showed that ha was at the head of the lobby that forced the bill through and that he kept on the statute books for seven years until It was repealed by congress. Hon. O. N. Marron was the next speaker and Ills remarks were direct ed to county affairs showing how the courts hud been abused through the use of the assessor's office and the sheriff's office under the Hubbell reg mle to oppress and plunder the peoi pie of liernalillo county and particu larly how Hubbell 1ms placed two of his 'tools on the ticket for county commissioners. Mr. Marron was applauded so of ten thnt It seriously Interfered with the delivery o'f his speech and when ever he paused the crowd shouted, "go on." At the conclusion of fr. Marrow's speech, Hon. Nelll B. Field was Intro duced and It Is safe to say that no more telling speech hns been made during the campaign. Mr, Field said people bad wondered Why he was not on the stump speaking and that the republicans Intimated that he was not supporting the, democratic ticket.
