ALBUQUERQUE MORNING JOURNAL.
THIRTY-FOURTH YEAR. VOL. BURG AND GARTH BEFORE STATE Representative and Senator from Bernalillo Rise to Ques tions of Personal Privilege in Answering. Criticism, EACH SPEAKS HIS MIND WITHOUT MINCING WORDS Yesterday Proves Rather Un eventful Day in Both House and Senate; Adjournment is Taken Till Monday, Spfolnl IXupalth lo the Morning Journal. 1 Santa Ke, X. M.. April 11. Wound ed feelings played the principal part in mi absolutely uneventful meeting of the legislature today. Nothing whatever was accomplished In the way of legislation, but the proceed ings of both houses were more or less interesting from the standpoint of the gallery. In the house, Mr. Burg took vio lent evception to a statement in an Albuquerque evening newspaper to the effect that the forces now in control of the organ ization of that body constituted 'the ranks of the shameless." He rose to a point of personal privilege immediately alter the Journal had been approved and relieved himself of since convictions. He was angry clean through, and didn't undertake to con ceal it. lie spoke of the progressive movement which he declared is sweeping the country from end to end, up and down and all the way across, and declared that the men who had been denounced as shame less" were representative of that movement. At the conclusion of his remark-". Mr. liurg used the short and ugly word. Speaker Illicit immediately called him to order and declared that b(V intrsl confine uiiiltielt to tin. use ot purlin tnentnry language. "I will with drew the word lie." " repl'ed the gon tlennln from llernalillo, "but I Insist that this newspaper has taken the re verse side of the truth." Mr. Plug's remarks follow in full: Mr. Speaker: "I wish to rise to a iiuesllon of personal privilege. It is vi ly sihh.ni that I rise to a question of personal privilege, but in this in stance, 1 think f am fully Justified. I have not been taking notice of utter ances made by the press, especially when they are directory, but 1 find hire in the press from my own coun ty, language which is entirely un secniitig. to say, the least. I find that the notion of this house yesterday was criticised by this arm of the pr. ss in lungun"a' which refers to the w.uk of this In use and lis members, including myself, as being in the tanks of the shameless. "I wish now, before the pcopl.- of tliis state, to vindicate myself and this house and niiy members who par ticipated hen- in the last two days from being In the ranks ot the shame less. We are In the ranks of the peo ple. W, are against gang rule.' We atv against outside Intcrtcrcm e In this legislative liody. We have so shown ourselves, by standing solidly with the speaker of this house In an effort to remove him, and our action has received commendation, from all over this broad land, anil not only within this state, hut also outside of It. "This matter is not only confined to this 1'ntted States but 1 think it spreads ados the entire continent. We ate one of u family of repub lics in this country and we are looked upon ns the leader and the action of one (,f our state is generally on euiieil in ,v all of the stales, and 1 believe lb,, action taken here in the Past wi ek has tile concurrence of all the ether slates In this union, and 1 do nut propose to stand for such In famous language as is contained In this portion of the press and I give It the seal of the lie. "I think this course adopted by this Piper is prompted by the fact that It 'b sir. .1 this house to expel the four nieinbers which we. have Justly cx onerateil from the charge, trumped lip against them." I'oe lo if mistake in tabulating the vole on the motion to expel the four men accused of bribery last Monday. Messrs. Tripp, of San Miguel. and Sam-hex. f Mora, w.-re recorded as having voted in the negative on the loolion. lioth of these gentlemen de clined t vote on the question, slating as their reason that they had not had an opportunity to form an intelligent opinion on the merits of the case. In the senate. Mr. lliirth let It be known thet his "daws" had been kicked around also. Mr. I'.arth ha. I heard thai somelody had been say ing that he was olatructlng legisla tion. He didn't tell the senate who it w i that -Mid It. or who had told him that It had been said, but the vef i'b . W;IJ, enough to make his blood oil. There is a good deal of l.loo.! In S nator Rarth. and when it all gets ' ladling at the Mime lime, as it d'd this morning, it Is apt lo blow Ike lul off. Mr. p.arth stated that, upon hcar nin tties. remarks. he l,a-1 goto loin executive si sii. m w.th bin. self. ,,i constitute.! him self judge and jarv a ol REGISTER KICKS 50L0NS had I, .Id i-'l trial. a fair md impar ts it h result thai he CXXXIV, No. 12. had found himself nut guilty of ob structing legislation. He reviewed his record us a senator, told about the twenty-four bills he had introduced, complained of the inability to get committee action on them, and In ferred that the real reason back ol the Insinuations cast against him was that nobody loved n fat man. Senator Holt objected to certain criticisms that Mr. Uarth made of the non-action of committees, and raised the point of order that the speaker was not confining; himself to the point of privilege which he was supposed to be arguing. Lieutenant (iiiveriio" de liaca overruled the point of older and Senator Holt appealed from tin decision of the chair. Jiy n vote of 1" to X, in which all the republicans ex cept Senator I'nnUey voted with Mr. Holt and all the democrats and pro gressives voted with Mr. Rarth. the chair was overruled, but In spile of the vote there was little change lo lie noticed in Senator earth's remarks. When the senator from lieinalillo had concluded. Senator Holt gained tile Moor, hut did not hold it without considerable resistance from Mr. I'.arth in the way of points of order, to the effect that there was no motion before tile senate to which Mr. Molt could properly address himself. With some difficulty Mr. lloit finally man aged to move that the rules be sus pended and that Senator Rarlh's Apology lie accepted, provided hi would promise never to let it happen again. I.o, the poor Indian, nlso came, in for considerable discussion before the senate. The matter arose on the adoption of House Joint .Memorial N. 1, petitioning congress to open t Navajo reservation. lai didn't get very far, however, except in the way of talk. An hour or more was consumed In the discussion of the memorial, but in the final show down it was passed by the rather decisive vote of 20 to 2. lioth houses adjourned until .Mon day. The Senate. After prayer by the chaplain and the reading and approval of the Jour nal; Mr. Ilarlh arose to a iiuestinn of personal privilege, and at the conclu sion of his remarks new bills were in troduced as follows: S.

ABUQUERQUE, TAFT VIGOROUSLY ATTACKS RECALL PROGRAM OF President Says Those Are In sincere Who Act from Desire to Propose Changes Rather Than Improve Conditions! DEMAGOGUES SEEK UNFAIR ADVANTAGES Speaker Declares Sensitive Nerve of Serious Minded Peo ple Has Been Touched by Subversive Proposition, Illy Meriting Journal Sliorlul LciimiI Wlri. New York, April 11. President Tafi charged tonight that many of those- persons who advocated the re call of judges or the recall of Judicial decisions are insincere, demagogues without sufficient knowledge of the needs for Ihe preservation of the constitution or its guarantees. Some of the men who preach the recall, he said, were sincere, but all of them acted from a desire to pro pose changes rather than with any definite plan for Ihe Improvement of conditions. Tlie president w;as speaking to the rnlon League Club of New YorJ. He mentioned no names but announced with emphasis thut the 'sensitive nerve" of the serious-minded people of the country had been touched by these proposals and. thul when they realized that "impious" hands were likely to be laid upon the ark of the covenant, "a profound protest was heard from all thinking people." Mr. Taft c.'iiue to New Yolk to night to keep two engagements. The first was with fellow, members of the class of Yale '7S. ut the I'nlverslly club; the other with the I'nlon l eague club, which recently announced Its endorsement ot his candidacy, fn beginning his speech, the presi dent thanked the I'nion la-ague clubs of New York and Philadelphia for their recent endorsement of his can didacy. It has been unusual for these organizations, he said, to talci any pert in pre-conv entlon campaigns. "I'.ct," he said, "circumstances have made the present pi e-eonv entlon campaign of such u character that both the Philadelphia and New York clubs have Indicated in resolutions a conviction on the part of nearly all their members that there Is some thing at stake in this campaign thai should awaken the interest and arouse the action of all who believe In the principles and I'm in of government that are embodied lnmr present con stitution, and who cherish the Insti tutions preserved and secured by thut constitution as essential to the maintenance of liberty regulated by law. 'The necessity that there was for arousing our people to prevent, the abuses of corporate privileges und power, and to wrest from concentrat ed wealth the exercise of political control anil the success that has at tended such agitation among the "peo ple have been taken advantage of by persons, some of them sincere, some of them demagogues, and nil of them with an Insufficient knowledge of the necessity In Ihe maintenance of liberty and progress of our constitution and its guarantees, to propose changes, rather for the sake of change than with an definite plan of Improving the body politic "Itecause rourt have not manifest ed as quick perception of the adv. m laes to be realized trom these pro posed changes, and In some Instance perhaps have unduly broadened con stitutional restrictions, to declai . them Invalid. It is proposed to change the whi le mi Mire of our judicial sys tem and render it Kubjei I lo popular review, either by what is called the recall of the judges when their con duct on the bench is not approved hy a majority of the voting electorate, or by a recall of decisions and a reversal of the judgment of Ihe Judge when ever they declare invalid a legislative enactnieni which Ihcy d-ein lo lie in Tiolatlon if the fundamental law. "It was not until the sensitive nerve of the Serious-minded people of this country was touched by the proposi tion to recall Ihe judge, or to recall their decision, that soi h people of all classes in gun to realize that impious hands were llkelj to be laid upon the ark of the covenant, which Is the In dependence ef tile Judiiial branch of our government. A profound protest was heard from all thinking p opb against Ihe proposal.

POPE IS IN GOOD GENERAL Report of Death of Roman Pon tiff is Incomprehensible at Vatican; Error Arose from Telegram. By Miirning Journal Siwi'lid la-n.nl Wlr l Rome, April 11. The origin of the astounding dispatch from Madrid which reported to have the author ity of ihe nunciature there, announc ing the death of the pope is Incom presenslble ut the -Vatican from which no dispatch was sent which (oulil possibly l e construed into such an erroneous report. The pope's condition today was as physically perf.-cl as could be cxpectid in one of his years. The pope's physician, lr. Marchla favu, after ridiculing the report this evening, authorized the statement thut the condition i ihe pontiff is normal und satisfactory. Cardinal Merry del Val, Ihe papal y cretary of state, was noire explicit. He said the pope had been In ex cellent health throughout the whole winter. Indeed, the pontiff hud ex 1 1 1 leiic d I et I er health than at any winter of his later life. He had suffered no attack of gout nor even a cold, ex cept an Insignificant one a few week u-go, when audiences were not reslly suspended, luu postponed In order to give him a little rest before Kaster week. As an strength added : "Kvery with the a cup of Indication of the pope's and health the cardinal day the holy father rises sun, says mass, then takes coffee without Solid food. He deuls with all the affairs of the church, grant private audiences, re ceives sometimes a thousand people, always a few hundred, daily, continu ing until one o'clock without rest or food except at limes another cop of coffee. "After a light luncheon his work continues until late In the evening. "The pope today spent many hours In hard work. He first r Ived the papal secretary and then Cardinal Delia Volie, prefect of the congrega tion of the Index, spent considerable time with his holiness. IjiI r the pope received Cardinal Mlli.it ill the ilregorbui conservatory with whom he conversed for some time." The pontiff also received in H- n eial audience lucre than lull persons, including several Americans. in linn or imh'K's iivTii oi i:t i rroii in ii i i:.ii m Madrid, April II. The firm us report of the pope's d -ath originated 'hroiigh a telegram which was sent to an attache at the papal niincin tur announcing Ihe death of his father.

M., April I I, With the return to Santa I'V of flon. Solo mon l.una the serious work of re pairing the republican machine and getting it In such shape that It will run was put under way. All Wednesday afternoon there were rumors that something was jilmul to hiippen, bill nfibody was aide to form any Idea f what It would be. Wednesday ijight there was a meeting In the llilace hotel of a number of the member of the re puhllcun executive) eomniill -e. At the same time and In the same bulldin there was it conference between the leaders of the republican faction in Ihe house of representatives which has been giving trouble to the orsanlza tlnn. Speaker liaca, John Ha run llurg und James W. Chaves, of Tor rance county, were the parties to this conference. t Some member of til., republican state executive committee objected lo Ihe story printed In, The Morn ing Journal, slating that a meeting of. the committee was held Wednes day night. They protested that there was no such meeting. .They assert ed that it had la-en Intended to have a meeting of the committee but that on assembling It Was found that no quorum was present and sn the meet ing broke up In a game of bride whist. In support of this statement thev- point to the fact that a Very distinguished member of the commit tee lost five perfectly good dollurs In the gitniei The facts are as follows: .Messrs. l.una. Spless, Springer and Clark fore gathered In u room at the Palace hotel. Messrs, liaca, fiurg and Chaves fori ga l hered in another room lu Ihe same hotel anil on tile same floor and very mar to the room In which the other gentlemen Vlete assembled. There was eoiiiuiuiili-atlon between the gentlemen In the different rooms. Kv erybody refuses lo teli what was said or done, The reader can draw his own conclusions from these facts. There are those who believe and who do hot hesitate to assert that an understanding was ha,l Wednesday night between Mr. liaca ami Ihe repre sentatives of the organization. Not officially of con i si oh no bill an-umh-rstamling nevertheless, and that us a result of this understanding the organization will make an effort next week lo put Kail over. Whether this effort can succeed or not Is Very doubtful. Speaker liaca may be placated, but there are other things to lie considered besides Speaker liaea. It is one thing to have, the speaker personally cease his opposi tion to Hie organization plans It Is iiilie aiioi Iter thing for the speaker to deliver lo Senator Kail Ihe Vole necessary to elect him. There Is rea son lo believe Unit a number of the eeiitlemen who have support d Mr. Paea loyally throughout the troublous times of the last few days, will bulk and stumble when It comes lo the mailer of re-electing the genll -mnii from Three Rivers to succeed him self.
