McAllister, special Cor tes purulent for the Morning Journal.) Santa F.-, Dae. 0. The ?" "How sick is de Haca'.'" which bus been agitating the public mind of New Mexico for the last two months, was answered today as far as possible lot him to answer it. by the appearance in New Mexico of tin man supposed to he best able to speak with BUthor- ity Govarnor-eh id dc Baca himself. It is not always possible for tne layman, untrained of medical science. in the mysteries to tell with any degree of accuracy how sick a man is, nor is the patient himseil ai.i.. ii... i.si wiio, ss o us unysicai ilitinn. P.ul w lien 1 be itie'nt end thr public agree n the matter at leas! a prima facie ease is made, and that is all that can lie hoped for in the pres- aS'lll II1.t1.iKw . The people of New Mexico affTl. be told in as simple language as can j be used what Is the physical condition . of the man who in rorty-elghl boms i more will be their governor. They an- not Interested in on pronouncea oie medical names or abstruse scientific conclusions. The main question be fore the house is whether or not the incoming chief executive is physically aide to discharge the duties of the of fie,, to which be was elected, and It is the pin pose of this article to an swer the question as nearly as it Is possible to do so. Widely conflicting statements have been given out regarding tlovernor de Baca's health It has been said that lie is In the final stages of an incura ble malady and is so nearly a dying man that the governorship will from the beginning have to be administered by others. This is not true. It has also been said that Mr. de Baog, suffering merely from the se ven, physical strain of a healed po litical campaign, has fully recuperated and Is now in as good condition as i mild he expected of one of his age This also is not true. Those who expected to see the next governor carried from the Santa Ke train to n hospital in an ambulance were disa ppnintcd Those who ex pected to see him spring from the platform of his sleeper with the eles tlc and buoyant steps of a man in the prime of life and the pink of physi cnl condition were equally disap pointed. Whether Mr. de Haca has as the physicians call it. pernicious anemia, is for the physicians themselves to say Mr. de Huca is what would be i ailed in the everyday language of the everyday man. In rather feeble health. hut he does not give the Impressicn of li man who is Hearing the Md of his days, tin the contrary, the layman, unhampered by medical theories and Scientific doctrines, would, after careful observation of him say ;hat with proper treatment ami , nrefnl nursing he should live out his allotted three-score years and ten. The l.os Angeles newspapers have given the sforv of Governor de Haca s illness a somewhat vellovv tinge by comparing it to that of lUe lulu lue UAIM luMlitinUWj THE WEATHER WEATHER rOREC 1ST.

The people of New Mexico know little of Mrs. I'.ols- sevain'i Illness except from what they have read iii the press; but from per sonal observation they know a good deal about the late Judge W illiam II. I'ope, whose death s few months ago, like, that of Mrs. Bolascvaln, was due to the same malady that (lovernor de Haca Is said to be suffering from. Consequently it is more enlightening to compare Governor de Baca lo Judge Pope than to Mrs lioissevain. Governor de Haca la to all appear ances much stronger, fresher ami more alert today than Judge Pop" was six months prior to Ins death. There is on his (gee nothing Of the drawn, set expression of constant pain, that was so distressing symptom with Judge Pope, ills i dor is much clear er, his eye much brighter. The only point of comparison between them Is a Feebleness of step, but ..t that, Gov ernor lie Ultra's step is not so feeble as was that of Judge Pope at a time when the latter was hearing and de ciding Important cases in the United States district court. Another comparison easily under stood by the people of New Mexico may throw some light on the new gov ernor's condition. Thousands of citi zens saw and cheered Mr de liaea when he appeared on the floor of the I democratic convention that nominated him in Santa Kc last August. Still 'more thousands saw and heard him jwhen he addressed a monster demo cratic rally in the national guard ar mory In Albuquerque on the Saturday I night before the election at which he j was chosen governor. Governor do Baca looks today to be in better health than on either of those occa sions. The improvement is seen in I his complexion. In the brightness of 'his eye md In the warmth and spolt jtaneity of his greeting of those whom 'he meets. Too much Importance should not be attached to the fact that the new gov ernor was accompanied from Los An geles to New Mexico by a trained and that he went from the train lm Rants Ke tu st.
