Aside from the selection of eight delegates and tltiht alternates to the democratic convention at Baltimore, instructed to vote for Champ Clark's nomination tor president, the democratic state convention at Clovis witnessed an other one-round bout today bv the Bernalillo county delegation. This time the participants were Summers Hurkhtrt nnd R. L. Wootton. But one blow was struck, Mr. Wootton striking Mr. Huikhart over the left eye, when the two were soparated. Later the 1 reach w'ag healed in public by an apology from Mr. Woottoon, which was directed to the convention, and a personal apology to Mr. Burkhart. wh'ch he accepted and then moved that the convention accept Mr. Wot tons apology. Then the two men shook hands'. A near ns can be learned, Mr. Wootton took exception to remarks make by Mr. Burkhart and, Instead of replying In kind, he struck Mr. Burk hart. Tho affair happened Just at the time the convention was being called to order by J. 1 1 Paxton, of Dona Ana county. Senator liarth immedi ately claimed the floor and In a vio lent speech, insisted that the Herna llilo delegation repudiate Mr. Woot ton and wanted him ejected from the convtntinn. At first his motion met with considerable support, l.at befur; it was put to a vote, and after an ex planation bv K. S. Parker, together with comments that the F.crnalilk, delegation should wash its own dirty linen, the matter was allowed to rent, undecided for a time. Just before the noon recess, Mr. Wootton made hi? apology In open convention. which was accepted end no more was heard "f the matter during the remainder of the session. A brief session of the state central committee was held this morning at which J. H. Paxton. of Dona Ana county, was recommended for tempor ary chairman; A. C. Torres, of Socorro coimtv, temporary secretary, and Antonio Pneheco, of Socorro county, and Kusenio Komero of Mora coun ty, were recommended as temporary interpreters. For permanent officers. O. A. Richardson, of Chaves county, snd John L. Zimmerman, of Fan Mi guej county, were named as chairman and secretary', respectively. A. C.

Governor McDonald spoke la part as follows: 'Gentlemen of the convt-nLV,. 1 CXXXIV, No. 45. regret that I have to hurry back to J work to which you have elected me.'

He then men- nZ, . "f ProminePt democratic candidates by name, kayUig a few words about each. At the mention of the names cf Harmon and Under wood, there were a few scattered hand clappings around the hull. At the mention of Champ Clark's name the convention went wild for several minutes. Almost as ereut a demon stration followed the mention of the name of Woodrow Wilson. Continuing, the governor said that reprdless of who wa nominated, he felt confident taut New Mexico would be safely i the democratic column tills fall. "We cannot play this game In the mime manner as do tho republicans. Wo have to stttnd out in the open and light for principles and for right, but no good democrat puts his personal nterests above those of party, and if you nnd such a maa put him be hind you.

I am not referring to any one per sonally, but to all of you. Gentle men, I thank you." Following the governor's talk, it was moved that each delegation select one member on each of the three committees; namely, credentials, permanent organization and order of business and resolutions. Following the selection of thes,e committees, the convention recessed until 2 p. m., to give the committees time to prepare thcr reports.

The permanent officers of the convention were agreed upon, but when it came to Sections 4 and 6, in tho order of business report, trouble started. The two sections In question provided for the election ol a chairman and secretary of thesiate central committee, and the selection of a new state central committee. A minority report was presented, pro testing gainst this order of business, and .suggesting that these two sec tions be stricken out. This precipitated a heated debate, lead by 11. D. Terrell, of Curry coun ty, for reorganization, and .Senatoi lweue Bartn, of Bernalillo county, who favored letting the old committee hold over. Judge 'i in til contended mat thore was a big tight on this lull, that the buttle would be half over by the time a slate convention was held again and that It would be bet ter to reorganize new and thus pre pare for the War that was about to bt declared against the common enemy.

When the adoption of the minority lepcri was moved by Dr. J. II. Wroth, oi Bernalillo county. It carried with scarcely a dissenting voice. Dr. Kohlhausen, of Colfax county, explained the position of those who wanted a reorganisation. He said that there was no more loyal sup erior of Go.ernor MeDotia.d than himself, nor was there any man who had worked harder to elect him. He Inssted that he thought the present the best time to reorganize and said that Senator Barth was b,n.ng the question, when he Intimated that Chairman Hudspeth would not be re elected. John W.

San Francisco, May 15. The strug gle between Itoosevelt, Taft and La Follette for the twenty-eigth dele gates from California to tho Chicago convention, was one of the most spec tacular fights waged during the pre conventlon campaign, second only to that now being carried on In Ohio. The principal republican newspa pers of the golden state favored the nomination of President Taft and strong appeals were made In his be half because of the favors shown to San Francisco in securing the Pan-Rma-PaoiUe exposition. The fact that the women of tho state would take part in the primaries lent hope to the followers of the pres ident. It was thought that his appeals for a sfiuare deal might be more effec tive with them than with the men. Also it was thought that the long and vigorous campaign made by Sen ator LaFollotte would so split the op position to tho president that he mirtht overcome the recognised popu larity of Colonel Itoosevelt. Hut the returns show that the ex-presldont has about as many -Votes as both of his opponents combined and that his lead over tho president will be not less than 65,000. The democratic contest. was less spectacular. While Governor Woodrow Wilson visited the state some weeks ago and made a number of speeches, the tide against him was seen to bo setting strong from the time former Senator Richard F. Pettlgrew, of &'Mit PnkoU,- tt thrcisW t1a stnte and put up the Champ Clark organi sation. From the returns at 2 o'clock Wednesday morning it was Indicated that Clark had won over Wilson about two to one. Approximately two-thirds of Cali fornia. 21 precincts out of 3700, gives Koosevelt 98,109; Taft, 61,703; LaFollette, 31,196; Clark, 26,364; Wil son. 11,997. itoosevelt's plurality on the face of the returns Is 46,406. His indicated plurality is between 60,000 and 65, 000. UTAH PFMOCltATS READ UMNSTItlCTKl) DIXKGATES. Salt Lak? City, May 14.

An effort In the resolution commit tee to commit the delegates to the presidential candidacy of Woodrow Wilson, commanded but two votes. Tho big tight in the democratic state convention here today was on the election of a national committee man to succeed Frank K. Nebeker. The position went to William K.

It whs a day of speeches In quick suc cession, us Col. Koosevelt wits hur ried through the eastern part of the state to keep up with the schedule. This called for thirteen speeches and the colonel made several more than that. Thero were largo crowds wher ever he spoke. Colonel Koosevelt cov ered part of the ground which Presi dent 'Taft went over and their, paths , crossed often. Colonel Koosevelt renewed his at tacks upon tho president nnd asserted ho would not reply to the things Mr. Taft said about him so far as they were personal, but would confine him self to political principles. .. A new point which Colonel Koose velt developed was his denial of tho right of President Tnft to crlttclza acts of the Koosevelt administration. Ho took the ground that as a member of the Koosevelt cabinet, Mr. Taft was part of tho administration and as a candidate for president ha mada his campaign with the record of the Roosevelt administration ui his plat form. He charged that tho president had "Joined the. enumr." Colonel itoosevelt went on ' to say that the "bosses" who were against Mr. Taft four years ago had not changed, but that it was Mr. Tuft who hud changed. "I stand tiy all that my administra tion did." ho said. ..'

Colonel Roosevelt said that It was his desire to open tho campaign In the home town of the late President McKlnley. He renewed his attack on President Tuft and tho men directing the presi dent's campaign. He referred to Sena tor Lorlmer of Illinois as "Mr. Taft's lieutenant." He strongly criticised Representative William H. McKlnley, manager of Mr. Taft's campaign, for referring, the colonel said, In a publlo statement, to tho men who opposed President Taft In the Maryland cam palun its "the rabble of the cities."
