With only Bernalillo, Socorro, Valencia, Mora and Sandoval counties without any tickets in the field, but which will be nominat ed by Saturday of this week, and with out the Republicans in San Miguel county having yet announced their nominees, it appears quite certain that the Republicans will control the consti tutional convention by a substantial majority. Rio Arriba, Lincoln, Otero and Sierra counties have been eliminated from the conflict by naming fusion or non-partisan tickets to which there is no se rious opposition. That means eight Re publicans and six Democrats from these bailiwicks. Socorro county will prob ably follow this example, which would mean the certain election altogether of 11 Republicans and eight Democrats, and the latter of the conservative wing. In the counties of Chaves, Eddy, Roosevelt, Curry, San Juan, Grant, Luna, Torrance and Quay, the Repub-. licans expect to elect no more than six delegates, while the Democrats will have 20. But conceding that the Demo crats would sweep those counties it would give them only 34 votes alto gether. Of the remaining counties, the Republicans are dubious about their candidates only in Dona Ana and Guadalupe counties, where local differ ences threaten the fortune' of some of the candidates nominated. But even though the Democrats should elect all eight of these, which is highly improb able, th most they could muster w ould be 44 delegates and -that only as the re sult of an unprecedented land slide. Snntn Fe County. Probably, most important of all the conventions held lately, were those of Santa Fe county, in which the Repub licans placed on their ticket Thomas Benton Catron. George W. Prichard, Jose D. Sena. Victor Ortega and B. F. Pankev. an exceptionally strong aggre gation both politically as well as per sonally. The Democrats fused with the Commercial club of Santa Fe, which has been opposing -the old regime, and named three Republicans, Samuel G. CartwrljM, Robert T. Hynd and Jose Tnez R'oibal, and two Democrats, Napoleon B. Laughlin and Francisco Delgado. While these men are strong personalities, they have no chance to be elected. R. T.

Hitch cock, for it demonstrates that the na tional adminisr-ation is much Interested In the fight of the Republicans to ob tain ?.n overwhelming majority in the onntitiiMonal convention. Such a ma- iority will Inrove to the Republican loaders In thenation that it was not a partisan mistake to admit the terri tories. Assurances have bn received hre from Arizona, that the chances for Re publican success are not at all remote but very probable, and that the neigh boring commonwealth will submit to the president and congress as safe and sane r constHution as New Mexico will formulate thus assuring an carlv ad mission rnd election for United States senators within another 12 months. Democratf Will Not Object. The Republican leaders have also made un their mind, not to advocate the placing into the constitution any j clause that could be seriouslv opposed J by the Democrats. It is quite certain at this time, that nothing will be writ ten in the fundamental law to which the Democratic minorltv will object as a unit. The Republican majoritv may even go farther and permit the sub mission to tli people of Important propositions advocated by the mlnorltv. such as the referendum. This will be carrvirg the non-partisan idea into practical effect and should result in rallving the Democratic minoritv to the support of the constitution when that Is rubmitted to the people. It is cer tain that the Democrats would not make such sweeping concessions if by any chance thev should secure the power to prescribe the terms of the constitution.

Texas Legislators Would Fix Maximum Rate and Let Companies Compete. CLASH IN THE LOWER HOUSE Austin, Texas, Aug. 24. Opposing the repeal of the present insurance law as dangerous until the new statute is en acted because the companies would agree to charge high rates, senator Brachfield, explaining his stand against cutting out tne aiscriminatmg amend ment offered by Mayfield to the insur ance bill in the senate, issued a-statement today stating that he considers the regulation of insurance similar to regulating banks, which are forbidden to charge any rate of interest over' 10 percent but are not restricted as to .a low rate where desired.
