Which one of the lads It was, the remainder declined to toll, loyally refusing to make any statements which might Implicate ono of their number In an Investigation. But the boy went. What is more to the point, he found the needed article. "Hoy," suld the employe who start ed the Joke, "I want the left-tiunae-t meat auger. Go back to the kitchen and get it." The youngster started for the kitchen, und on meeting ono of the riishweahers, asked for the desired article. "Nothln" doing,'" said the dish washer, "chefs been lookln" for tt for a week. Try the storehouse." Back to tjie storehouse rambled the youth. "Where's the left-handed meat auger?" he blithely inquired of the commissary man. ,. 1 "The which?" asked that worthy. ' "Left-handed meat auger; thef says you got It." said the bell boy. "Give me air," murmured the com missarian. "Try the curio room. I ain't got it." So the boy tried the curio room. "Nix," said the curio employes. "What would we be doing with that? Try the express office." He tried the express office. Noth ing happened. Then he tried . the baggage office, the ticket office, the lunch room, and forty or fifty other places. Finally, some one sent him back to the store room and there he was given one of the reamer-like con traptions which are used to bore holes in vinegar barrels. Gaily he started back with this, glad that his tiresome quest was at an end. Just as he rounded the cor ner, he met Manager J. E. Smithers. This gentleman asked him where he had been.

California's delegation to the repub lican national convention, which was here for ten minutes last night on its way to Chicago, Is up in arms over the unseating of two of Its delegates by the central committee. They de clare that whenever a national com mittee can abrogate the laws of a state governing the election of delegates, it la time for a change. When they got the news yesterday they were went of Gallup, and a hasty meeting waa called In the rear car of their special train. At this meetiriK. strong resolutions of protest against the action of the national committee were adopted, and the chairman waa authorised to have them wired tJ the Loa Angclea Express, with the request to place the statement on the wire. Word was recolved last night by tht delegation that this had been done. , The resolutions were se follows: The California delegation to the re publican national convention indig nantly protests against the action 1 the republican national committee In denying recognition to two :f Its merr. Iers, Charles S. Wheeler and Philip Bancroft, who were regularly elected delegates under the law of California. It cannot be and is not disputed that In the Fourth congressional district of California, the election precincts were snllt bv the lines of the congressional district, so that neither the registrar of voters of Han Francisco nor the aecretary of state of California could determine which delegates received n majority for this district; and these two officials have so certified to the republican national committee. Consequently the right asserted to set aside a rtate laT if It fails to con form In any respect to the call for the national convention, does not ap ply In this ease even under the most technical construction of the rail. There . however, a greater princi ple at flake. This outrage lr more than a mere theft of two delegates. It Is an assault on the whole system of direct presidential primaries und is, therefore, a vital national issue. It is not disputed that .these delegates were selected under the state law ty 77.000 plurality, and that those sought to be seated in their places were de feated und.-r the laws of California. The o.uortion at issue is this. Can a sovereign state determine by law how its primaries shall be conduc ted to elect delegates to represent It In the nutlonal conventions of the vari ous parties of the United Mates? Un der the view taken by the national republican committee, ho state law is safe. A ruling acuinst delegates elected by such a state law as that of Cali fornia, and accredited to a convention by a secretary of state can therefore be considered only as an arbitrary rul ing of a national committee against the enactment of any presidential pri mary law whatever. Any party call Is certain to bo In-' consistent with the laws of some of tho stntes, and any uniform state law is likely to be inconsistent with the convention call of one or another imrtv. Unless the law Is to prevail In such cases It becomes futile to pass any laws, and the whole system of i legally regulated presidential primar ies falls to the ground. This is a mow Intentionally struck at tho national primary system, and it call for a na tional protest. The California delegation therefore calls on the representatives of all the states which hiive passed or which hope to puss, presidential preference I primary laws, ana on perrons no believe in such laws, to resist this first attempt to undermine the new system. The square issue Is here raised for tho first time whether the republican party shall l ruled by its members or by fifty-three holdover members of national committee, a large part of whom have already been repudiated by the state which they protess to represent. The settlement of this Is sue now Is a crisis In tho life of the republican party. Let It be met and settled now In this, the first caso In which it Is raised. I The California delegation promptly; met the action of the national com-! mlttee In unseating Charles S. Wheel-, er and I'hilip Bancroft by electing I Wheeler vice chairman or tn Delega tion to preside In the absence of Gov ernor Johnson, who Is In Chicago. Bancroft, the other rejected delegate,! was already secretary, so that two of ficers of tho delegation aro the two! rejected memlwrs. Much lnli;natlon was expressed at. this new inversion of the -steam I roller" from the fl.ntenlnw out of delegates to the smashing of state, laws. I Chester H. Unwell. Charles K. Simon and C. Young were app"i"t- ' ed a committee to draft the reaolu-; tie- e-f protest. ! Secretary Bancroft was authorised: to communicate by telegraph with -Governor Johnson In Chicago, and ask him to keep the delegates on the train Informed of the progress of ( events. Dal'y meetings are to he held en route, nnd a complete plan of action In hoped to ba ready on arrival at ; Chicago. i DH f fiATIJi TALK t n SMUtSM, l'UTIT)H All afternoon yesterday the dele gates met in the rear car of their palatial trln and discussed the plana which might I Incorporated Into the national platform. The leading sub jects discussed aere direct presidential primaries, conservation, aorklngmn's compulsory compensation law. plan of making the federal constitution raster of amendment, the Initlntlve. referendum and recall, the recall ofj judicial decisions, Income, and Inheri tance taxes. An eloquent speech In favor of t-he recall of Judicial decisions was made by Chairman Wheeler, who is one of the most ardent opponents of the re rail of the Judjlclury In California, He declared that ha would apply this principle even to the decisions of the supreme court, with n limitation, pro viding that It should only apply to cast's where the question wan whether congress had the right to pass cer tain legislation. The discussions, of course, are pure ly informal, and cannot bind the dele gallon to anything. The delcipitlon Is not in such n position that It desires to muke ttflf appear to dictate the national platform, but It Is felt that wholesome discussion of probable planks will be of material old In de termining what the real sentiment of the delegates may be on particular questions, und will probably save tlmo in Chicago. No final expression of onlnlon was taken on any question except that of amendments to the constitution, which was favored by a majority of the dele gates. -The vote on this wn twenty to six. Cither plana will be discussed each day until the train arrives at Its des tination. The discussion will fully educate California's representative on the resolutions committee as to what Is most desired by his constituency. Meyer Llssnr, chairman of the state republican committee, was chairman of the platform committee and led the discussion yesterday. While this session was In progress In the rear car, the Indies of the party held a tea In the forward car, at which many of the members of ilia uttiuaou--' families, and others not strictly delegates were present. OX I V WOMEN !E! ICtJATICS WITH YKVrKJt DAY'S I A HTY The only womei who will be seated Jn the republican national conven tion, as resularly accredited dele gates, were with the party which was here yestorday. They are Mesdamee Charles D. Blatiey, of Han Jose, and Florence Collins I'nrtor, of I.on An geles. Both were ilected. as were the other delegates, by a vote of the en tire republican , population of the state, by a majority of about 77.0UU. The delegation received special at tention from the Hanta Fe In everv particular. The equipment of their special train was that of the famous Santa Fe Ie Luxe, now retired for the summer, and extra care was used to soe that the special got through on time. At Albuquerque, where It ar rived ten minutes after the castbot.nd California ilmlted, the special was "run around" that train, and sent on east as second No. 2, running on a schedule much fuster than that of the limited. The train was held here only ten minutes for change of en gines and regular terminal work, and that was a comparltively long stop. The Hanta Fe was apparently de termined to demonstrate Its best time and best equipment to the Call fornlans. and they seemed well pleased yes'erday. There were twenty-six delegates, twenty-six alternates, and enough wives and families to bring the total up to seventy-six nbop.rd the train. - Statement of Receipts and Expenditures of Bernalillo County from January 1, 1911, to January 6, 1912. receipt.
