A poll of the committeemen present yesterday showed the following preferences for presidential candidates: Wilson, ii; Clark. 8; Harmon, 7. It is a signifi cant fact that Clovls and Curry coun ty is a veritable hot-bed for Wilson, mil that city's selection gives the Wil son advocates the first advantage. Senator T. J. Mabry of Clovls, Is one of the most enthusiastic Wilson sup porters in the democratic party and the majority of the democratic leaders in Curry county are aligned' with him in his support of the New Jersey gov ernor. The news that Clo is had Won tho convention was telegraphed there and the town Immediately held a pub lic Jollification to celebrate the vic tory. The Clark sentiment among inom bers of the committee was practically us Ftrong as was that for Wilson and the Mlssourlan tied Wilson in ino straw vote taken. It would perhaps be safe to say that Wilson just now is the first choice of the New Mexico democracy for president with Champ Clark second choice. Just what turn sentiment will take when the state convention Is held Is problematical as between these two candidates. There are those who insist that an unin structed delegation will be sent lo Baltimore by the democrats. Following the election of the new chairman, the members of the execu tive committee of the state centr.il committee tendered their resignations to Chairman Hudspeth, that lie might be free to act a-s he wishes In the se lection of a new executive committee. This action was merely a formal one and established by precedent of long standing. Mr. Hudspeth, the new chairman, Is one of the best known democrats in New Mexico. ls n htwyer and was a member of the constitu' ' con vontion, being the titular leader of the minority in that convention and in the last legislature. He is rated a shrewd politician and an Indefatig able worker.

FOR CRAMP HILL TELLS OF BIG LAKE SUPERIOR ORE DEAL AGED EMPIRE BUILDER IN" ROLE OF PHILANTHROPIST Purchased Four Million Dollars Worth of Securities and Turned Them Over to Stock holders of Railroad, By Morning Journal Mimm-IuI Learnl Wlr. Washington, Feb. 12. James J. Hill, chairman of the board of direc tors of the i treat Northern railroad told the Stanley steel trust Investigat ing committee today a story of him self iii lh'- role of a philanthropist to the stockholders of the railway com pany. Mr. Hill told how he had bought properties for more than (4,000,000, turned them over for that amount to the Lake Superior company, limited, as trustees for the railroad stockhold ers, and presented the stockholders with pro rata certificates for the in creased value of the property which accumulated rapidly and amounted to millions. The railroad magnate was question ed at length regarding the lease of these ore lands to the I'nited States Steel corporation for development, a lease which the corporation recently decided to cancel on January 1, 1115. In this land there are estimated to be about 500,000.000 tons of ore which the steel corporation values at (1 a ton. "I would not take (la ton for the ore." said Mr. Hill. The ore freight rates from the I-uke Superior region to the Pittsburg dis trict V'htch the I'nited States Steel corporation recently reduced to eighty cents a ton, Mr. Hill declared to be the cheapest in the country. "And It will be still lower." said he. "The next rate will la sixty cents." "Why did they cut the rate?" he was asked. "Why, 1 think the steel corporation Just got scared to death," he replied. "That's ill there is to it." "Kill you get your royalty just the same'.'" asked Mr. Voting. "Yes." "And when, the lease runs out you've got tli- ore?" "Ti b," Mr. (Hill replied . .' "What difT Terence does.' It make. I'll have the ore and ore doesn't vio out of fashion and the fire risk Is quite low." Hcprescntatlve Gardner asked the witness why he had turned over the propertiis to the 1-nke Superior com pany for the benefit of stockholders. .Mr. Hill declared the trustee com pany n lii'htirsod him for what he had paid anil the increased value was a gift to the Great Northern stockhold ers. "The trustee company paid me what I paid for the property, a little lover I4.0uo.0li0 with five per cent In heres!," said Mr. Hill. "Those propt-r-lles Immediately took on considerable value. There was nothing to conceal about it. Wherever I saw I could make money for the stockholders that way 1 did it." "Did the stockholders of the Great Northern company pay anything to the Ijike Superior company.' askeii Mr. Gardner. "No. their Interests were a gilt to them." Wh.- .11,1 t b.. ul....l,l..l.l..t'a ui.t iMn gift'.'" asked Mr. licit II of Texas. "I got back all I had paid and the I stockholder of Ihe raiiroHil uot the benefit of the additional value." said jjlr. Hill.

Kxpressinir the opinion that the country's business ha nothing to fear from the appllc t tlon of progressive policies In the ad ministration of public affairs, Gover nor Woodrow Wilson opened his cam paign for the presidential nomination here in a speech before the Iroquois club today at a Lincoln birthday luncheon at which he was the guest of honor. "I sometimes thing It a peculiar cir cumstance that the present republican party should have, sprung from Abra ham' Lincoln. I suppose that is one of the mysteries of providence. The richness of a democracy is that it never has to predict who has to save it. We do not have to train men lo Interpret the United States. When n emergency arises there Is always geniures who sppear from the ranks of uncalalogued men to bear the standard nnd show the way to vic tory.

Former I'nited States Senator Albert J. Heverldoe of Indiana, was Ihe guest of honor and principal speaker here tonight at the , Lincoln Day harmony bamiiu t ot the ; republicans uf Colorado. Kvery faction of the party was rep-j n rented on the prouram. Uepuliliean editors of the state were present as j guest of I'nited States Senator Gag- genheim. j The harmony feast was presided over by T. H. Devlne. a newspaper publisher of Pueblo. Mr. Heverlilge restrn teii nis specen to a discussion of national problems. Mr. Heverlilge described the Sher man law as a relic of the seventeenth century, and said "the oil and tobacco trusts are more alive today than ever In fore, because they now live under the expressed approval of the courts: while not one wrong they have In flicted on the people bus been ended." Mr. Itererldgi s address. In part, was as follows: "To deal with tile Instant need of ttilnus this was the method of Abra ham Lincoln, and it must be ours. To cou'llliie to be the party of Lincoln, our party actively must do the work we lind before us instead of Idly prais ing the work our rathers found be fore them, but which I not behind us.
