William Barnes, Jr., New York 'City: "Senator Root represents political views and methods that should , not be sanctioned at tne Chicago conven tion.

By this means they may succeed In controlling the national committee and deciding whether Senator Root shall be recommended as temporary chairman of the convention. Harry B.

"There can be no question but what I am now, under the laws cf the state, 'he only person entitled to act as na tional committeeman from Nebraska.

The Ameri can battleships Utah, Delaware and Florida exchanged salutes with tne German cruiser battleship Moltke to jlay, aa the three former ships sped through the capes en route to Hamp ton Roads. The firing of salutes on Sunduy by American ships is not cus tomary, naval officers say, and the fact that the Utah, which led the three American ships as they passed the capes, boomed the first salute to Rear Admiral VonRebuer Paachwits, com manding the German squadron, was regarded as an unusual . compliment The big guns of the Moltke answer- ,ed the salutes from the Utah and the "officers and crew lined decks and waved their hands to the American ships. The German ships are expected to Jeave Lynn Haven bay about 7 o'clock Jn the morning so as to arrive in Hampton Roads at about the same time that the Mayflower get in with President Taft.

BRUTAL MURDERER HANGING PROSPECTS FOR GOOD ROADS ATSAfJTAFE Booster Meeling Held at Cap itol in Which House Leaders Pledge Support to Proposed Building Plan, IMMIGRATION MUST BE ENCOURAGED Much Criticism is Directed Against Those Responsible for Strangling One of State's Greatest Needs, (Sperlnl niaoatrh to the Mitrolnar Journal.) Santa t'e. N. M., June 2. The pros pects for the enactment of good roads legislation, at tnts session, wnicn win meet the demands of the boosters who have been working to that end, was materially enhanced when, at a good roads meeting held In the hall of thjs house of representatives Satur day night. Speaker Baca, Major Llew ellyn and John Baron Burg all came out in an emphatic ana unqualified manner for putting through such a program. ; The entlemen In question did not announce specifically that, they would support the bills introduced by Hen aor Holt, whh'h passed the senate Friday night, fcut inasmuch as those bills are the only ones now pending which have any sort of a chance to pass at this sesslbn, their declaration la considered tantamount to a prom ise to see to the passage of the Holt measures. With Messrs. Bca, Llew ellyn and Burg actively In behind the sonate bills, there is no doubt of their being passed a( an early day. It had been expected that a large delegation of Albuquerque good roads boosters would be In attendance on the meeting, and preparations had been made accordingly. It was under stood that the party from the Duke City would' come In with the pain finder cor of the Los Angeles Times ocean-to-oCean project, but when that cp.r arrived, the only Albuquerque repruttentatlve who put In an appear ann wua Muvor 11.

The Dona Ana county delega tion, which has been In the city for the. oast three days, was very much in evidence. Speaker Baca, on behalf of the house of representatives, wel comed the visitors. He was followed by Major Uewellyn and Mr. Burg In a similar vein. All of these gentle men pledged their support to tho en actment of good, roads legislation. Other speakers of the evening were Francis K. Lester. James Haye Pax ton and Mark II. Thompson, of Las Cruces: Judge John R. McFie, of Santa Fe, and Colonel D. K. B. Sel lers, of Albuquerque, all of Whom spoke In favor of a general system of state highways, and Vol. Dell Pot ter and Mr. Smith, of the Los Angeles Times party, who described the ad vantages to be derived by the state from the ocean-to-ocean highway. A Ulow at Progrrtw. The action of the senate In prac tically abolinhlng the bureau of Im migration by the simple expedient of refusing to appropriate any money for its support, has excited a great deal of comment, and criticism here, and there are many who do not hesitate to say that it is a staggering blow to the progress of the state., It Is pointed out by those who make this criticism that the only thing that ha ever, been the matter with the bureau la that it hns suffer ed for funds with which to wage an effective campaign, and that when It ia considered that It has always been hampered In thli respect the record which It has mail is little lens than wonderful. The senate bill leaves nothing to take the place of the bureau, and If It should become a law there will be no agency lo undertake the organised effort to advertise the resource of the state and Induce settlers to pieato here. Senator liarth made a determin ed effort to have a provision Inserted In the hill which would save the bureau, and in this he was supported by all of hia democratic colleagues except Senator Hlnkle, and by Sena tors M'-Coy and Sulxer. but his el forts were unavailing. A hard fluht will be made for the bureau In the house, and It Is not un likely that It will yet be saved from abolishment. MINERS DEMAND INCREASED WAGES Rutte, Mont.. June 1.

Asked If he had come to Santa Fa In response to a tiilcgram from any of his friends In this city, Senator Fall replied: "I cams because I wanted to." Senator Fall's assertion that he dcej not Intend to remain In Santa Fa more than two or three days may mean cither one of two things. It may mean that by Monday or Tues day of this week the whole thing will bn over and thut he will have a clear title to his seat in the senate for tha next six years, or It may mean that ier looking .over the situation ho will have become convinced that thera la no chance to bring shout his elec tion at this session and that he will then go on to his ranch and attend to the personal bUHlness which he claims was the principal cause of his coming to New Mexico at this time. Holm O. Ilursum Is still In town, wllh the accent on the "still." Ho has had several conferences with W. H. Andrews, and was closeted with Senator Fall for quite a while tonight. He denies empliutlcally that ha Is tak ing tiny part In the senatorial fight and declares that he Is here merely In the Interest of the enactment of legislation to which the republican party of the state is pledged. As stat ed by himself, his position In the sen atorial light Is "hands off." It Is not a bud guess, however, that If a senator I chosen at this session, Mr. Hursum will havs a hand in IU Mr. Ilursum Is a warm supporter of Theodore Room-veil for the rvpubll- cannoulfitlun for president. So la M' iT..-.', '. 'A: though he Isn't making any noise about it right now. The chalices are that If the Fall and tha Roosevelt canilldnics can be tied to gether In a sufridi-ntly hard knot, Mr. llurMiim will be found fighting for both. The situation tonight Is one of un certainty. The Full supporters ara raking the Held with a Hno tooth comb to see if enough strength can bo Rgathered to force a joint session of the legiHlature. There la still talk that In the event of a failure to pro cure a Joint sewtlon, the Fall support ers In the house will combine with the senate republicans, constituting a majority of both houses, and proceed to the election of Senator Fall to succeed himself. And It Is said that an opinion has been rendered by tha attorney general ot the United Statea to Ihe effect that such a procedure would be legal. Senator Fall denies, however, that he procured such an opinion, nnd disclaims any knowledge of this plan. Progrev-lvrs to Mont.
