EVERY MOVEMENT HAS MEANING ALL ITS OWN While House Presiding Officer and Men Who Dominate Old Guard Remain Silent, Rumors of Deal Are Numerous, imirclnl liupatrh to III." Me.rnlrn Journal.) 1 l' i a Fe. N. M.. April 12. About 11 o'clock Thursday nlKht. while the l,,y of ihe Palace hotel was almost di sci U1, interesting and appar ently v.r.v much interested group of m,.n .niirlit have been observed In a earner of the lobby. Their chair wrre hitched up close together, their heads were thrust forward until they almost touched, and they conversed in low tones that could not have been heard three feet away. In the group were 'Ion. Holomon I. una. national republican coinriiitteeman from New Mexico; Herbert W. Clark, secretary nt the republican stale executive ooniiniiue; Hon. Charles Springer, a prominent member of the commit tee, and Hon. It. L. Hacu, Hpeaker of the house of representatives. What was said by the. gentlemen tukinfj pa it in this informal con ference only they can tell, und they won't. The conference was not a long one, and when It broke up. Speaker Haca went across the street to pay a call on Hon. W. H. Andrews, ut whoso home ho Is frequent visitor. Of coursu there Ib nothing essen tially significant In the fact that Kacu should drop into the Palace hotel and seeing his old friends, .Messrs. Lum . Clark and Springer fitting avou-iel .1". the lobby, draw up a chair and chat with, them for a while. .Nor would any special im portance attach, under ordinary cir cuiaslnees. to Mr. Kaca's running across to call socially on his old friend, Mr. Andrews, alter leaving the hotel. Hut the point Is that the present circumstances are by no means ordinary. They are distinctly extraordinary, and every little move ment has a meaning of Its own. Just what is the meaning of Mr. Baca's movement last nigjht is a mat ter upon which one man s opinion is just as good us another's. The fact arc given tor what they are worth. It is still the guessing stage of the senatorial contest and -f the struggle of the republican organization to r gain control of the house. The men most directly concerned in what is going on are. very secretive and have contrived to throw about their act an air of mystery that Is positively painful. All anybody can do is to guess, and there Is little to choose between one guess and another. I'ntil the legislature reconvenes next Monday it will be Impossible, to give anything like an accurate idea of what will happen, either in th matter of the gcnatorshlp or the fiejht for the control of the house. There Is now nothing at all In the way of news everything is gossip and speculation. I 'roe Text Hooks I'ninnsod. A very important bill was Intro duced in the senate Thursday by Senator Walton, of Silver City. It is a measure to provide flee lest books and si itiiol supplies for the children or the state, and is in line with the democratic platform declaration calling i(u such a law. The bill makes it the duty of pub lic s.

FISHER SAYS TAFT Secretary of Interior Vigorously Defends President from the Charges of Being Reaction ary, By Morning Jnnrnnl Special I.ru.rd Wlrs.) Lincoln, Neb., April 12. Speaking here tonight in support of President Taft'a administration Secretary Wal ter L. Fisher of the interior depart ment, declared that "absolutely re gardless of the bricks that are thrown from either side," the presi dent hud pressed forward toward the goal of "accomplishment of real measures for tho advancement of the Interests of tho whole people." 'vnu can bo oretty sure," said Secretary -Fisher, "that any public man is in the middle of the road when he is attacked by big business upon one side and by those who seeking to advance their personal tercsts bv attacking big business are iu- the other." Mr. Fisher said he hud entered President Tuft's cabinet because "nothing hut a lack of confidence in the sincerity nnd high purpose of President Tuft would justify a refusal of his call, "I became president of the con servation league, of America at the suggestion of the presidency ami Clifford Pine-hot.'' he said. "1 was for the colonel for president when he was only a lieutenant colonel. In lst'fi. when he had not been nominated for governor of New York, 1 was one of a little group of enthusiasts in the city of Chicago, who flung to the breeze a banner in scribed 'for president in ll'iU, Theo dore Koosevelt.' "I understand Senator LaFollette has recently told you that he came to Nebraska because Nebraska people are progressive," said Mr. .Fisher. "That is the reason I have come to Nebraska. 1 claim to be a pro gressive republican and 1 wish to say something to you about the so called 'progressive policies' anil their relation to the republican nomina tion for president. I believe that the position of President Tail with re gard to them has been misunder stood and misrepresented. I myself have had the distinction of being i. der suspicion bv both radicals and reactionaries. My claim to being a progressive is based, not upon mere advocacy of the progressive policies In u theoretical and academic way. but to practical efforts to secun di finite results, especially In move- moths for the short ballot, the direct i primary, the referendum and the re call." Secretary Fisher said President 'fa ft had taken a progressive view upon all these propositions. "He believes in reducing the num ber of elective offices which is the short ballot,' " he said. "He be lieves in the direct primary ami it the presidential preferen it the d reet prima rv: he believes in the In creasing but conservative use of the r, ferenilum ami the only applh ation of the recall which he has opposed is the recall of Judges.''

The gov ernor was introduced by John Lee Webster, a leading supporter of President Tuft, who remarked that "we both are natives of Ohio, but were brought up in 'different political schools." 'We have too much business In our political and not enough politlcF in our business," declared the gov ernor. "Public nf fairs should re ceive the intention of all business men to the did that a few may not profit Illegitimately. "One great problem that we must meet today Is the government of the cities, for it Is titers that the grent est problems of taxation arise nnd f hero th, Bovernment en ters into the life of the people.'

Washington, April 12. A scathing denunciation of the house commit lee on expenditures in the Interior de partment, was delivered today by Mr. Mann, of Illinois, minority leader. He charged that Mr. (Iraham, of Illi nois, chairman of the. committee, had permitted a woman lobbyist, known by him, to be In the employ of per sons pressing claims before the com mittee, t,v shape legislation. Mrs. Helen Plerco Ciray, of Minne sota, was the woman named by Mr. Mann, lie charged that for three months she had occupied n desk in the ol flee of the committee of Indian nf talrs, on the strength of her relations with the house committee. At that time, said Mr. Mann, Mrs. Gray had solicited and had received fees amounting to several hundred dollars from the Indian claimants. Mr. Mann said a dissatisfied Indian had llled r protest with Chairman Grahuni and that he had told the woman to "keep the money." Mrs. Gray in 1 908, brought charges against ndinn Agent Reynolds, alleg ing that while she was on the Crow reservation, writing syndicate articles, she had been thrown Into jail and threatened with incarceration In a cell with a male Indian. The storm broke In the house today when Representative Graham's com mittee asked for the adoption of a res olution providing for' an Indian In vestigation in New Mexico. In opposing, Mr. Mann said: "The democratic investigations have cost the government more than ina,nan." He shook his clinched lists at the democratic side as he added: "They have not disclosed any scan dal so great as that of a committee of the house retaining within its scope a person who solicits and rec eives nion -y to use his or her Influence in enforc ing legislation through for the benefit of clients. " Mr. Mann demanded that Mrs. Gray lie summarily shut out of the commit le and the bureau of Indian af fairs. Representative Hill, of Connecticut, republican, protested against the ap propriation of any money for a further investigation Into Indian affairs. He denounced tho proposed trip to New Mexico as u forerunner of others "tin til 100 or 15ft sub-committees of In vestigation are wandering around the country training their olefactory sense in trying to smell out something to investigate.'' Mr. Graham made no reply to Mr. Mann's c harges and the resolution was adopted fit to 41. SENATE PASSES BIG ARMY APPROPRIATION Washington, April 12. The senate today passed t ho army appropriation hill, carrying $!!:',, Ill 1,710, or $7..r.S7. t.i.l more than the bill curried when it passed the house, and 1 2, 7 2 , 9 2.". more than last year's appropriation. K-nntor Warren said the increase I had been made necessary by the economy wave which swept over con gHss last year and caused unvvnr riiiocd reductions. In Ilu- debate, there was a renewed discussion of the house provision re ducing the cavalry from fifteen regi ments to ten. Declaring that it was general legislation. Senator Lodge said It had been Inserted by the house under a threat that the entire bill should fall unless the provisions were accepted. He took the position that ahsolgte failure would be prefer able to submission to coercion. The house provision was rejected by the senate yesterday. The army bill was brought up un expectedly by an agreement reached when the senate convened and thus prevented the dls. ussion of the l uio mins am pomerctie bills.

CONSUL LI Insurrecto Geneial and Ameri can Consular Official Sever Diplomatic Relations in Chi huahua, FRICTION OVER EXECUTION OF FOUNTAIN ONE CAUSE 'Seizure of United States Mails Leads to Vigorous Protest and Rebels Resent Failure to Recognize Belligerency, Mr Mornlnr .Inurnsl SiiucImI I rat ril YVIro I Chihuahua, Mcx., April 12. Th quasi-official relations, which by force of circumstances, have existed between Marlon Letcher, the Pulled States consul here, and Gen. Pasctiel Oroatoo, commander of the rebel forces, were broken today when Orosico formally untitled Mr. Letcher that he no longer recognised the lat ter In on official capacity. This offi cial ostracism Includes also James 1. Ixjng, tho Pnited States consulnr agent ut Purrul. In n general way, the reason gl'.vn by Orofco for his action Is that he cannot recognise representatives- of n government which does not recogn'.;e the belligerency of the party of which he Is the leader. A series of incidents, however, led to the climax. Since the revolution began the consul, from time to time, hag been compelled. In the absence of other authority in Chihuahua, to lane up various matters with Oroico. The latter fretted under the fact that the consul did not address him as n reg ularly constituted authority. Less than a week ago a rebel bind went through the Mexican Central train, bound from Chihuahua to Juarei, and selaed letters and docu ments curried by passengers, uinong the matter seised being considerable of Consul Letcher's official corro spondence addressed to the state de partment at Washington. Mr. Letcher protested In no uncer tain language to orosico against the act. There, were several exchanges over the matter until finally the rebel leader Informed the consul that the letters had been seized because they were stamped either with American stamps or not stamped at nil. Orozeo declared that the fact that the letter were not entrusted to the mails as conducted by the rebels was an insult to them, not to mention tlo fact that by using messengers Instead of the malls the rebel government Is deprived of legitimate revenue. In conclusion, the consul was In formed that his letters were In th postofflce and that they were at his disposal as soon as he saw lit to affix official Mexican postage stamps. Another Incident which increased the tension between, orozeo and Messrs. Letcher and Long was the execution of Thomas Fountain, an American soldier lighting under the leadership of Gen. Pane ho Villa, at Pa ri al. Fountain was not a spy, but soldier, and was captured In uniform and under arms. Notwithstanding this ho was condemned and shot. American citizens at tern pled to Intel -ced and, as a last resort, Consul Letc her und Consular Agent Long de livered a request, said to have been signed by President Tuft,- in which the latter requested that n stay of execution be granted In the case until a more thorough Investigation could be made. This plea was rejected almost instantly, to the great Indigna tion of Americans resident In Pair.il. Their protests against an act which they dec lare was against the rules ol all civilized warfare, reached the ears of the rebel leader, but served only to stiffen his attitude. His letter to Mr. Letcher today plainly Indicates his resentment against what he con siders undue Interference by Ameri cans, including tne consuls, in anairs f Ihe rebellion. Since the beginning of the revolt foreigners have been slow to trust their communications to the mails lmost invariably letters und docu ments of importance have been con- tided to the care of passengers mak ing the trip to or trom Chihuahua. Few passengers have left here without a package ol mall lo lie poste.i in i.l Paso, anil most of the foreign mall re ceived h.re has been brought in the same nielheiel. Ainerlian stamps, when available. hale been affixed, or other provision made for postage when Ihe letto wet., mailed in HI Paso. It has been taken tor granted the sealeel missive si,, no mote sat-reil In .Mexico now than at any other time when official siispii'lon is on the alert.
