Not SufferingvFrom Dis

IS A FRIEND
OF 'MR. SHERMAN
TJtIca, X. T., Oct. 25. Alton. B. Par
ker and Dr. M. W. Stryker, president
of Hamilton college, were the princi
pal speakers at a Democratic mass
meeting here last night.
President Stryker, a life-long Re
publican and supporter of vice presi
dent Snerman, and who as a trustee of
Hamilton college recently announced
himself for Dix, the Democratic candi
date for governor, devoted nearly all
of his address to ridicule of Roose-
President Stryker said:
"I resent Roosevelt as a national
or state issue. I have had enough
of him. In New York he is one thing
and in Kansas another. In Massa
chusetts he embraces Lodge; in In
diana he puts his arms around Beyer
Idge In New York he talks against
bosses and in Cincinnati he kisses
"One of the most curious things is
that he does not realize how funny
he is. There may be one who thinks
he would be a good Diaz, but few of
us who make good Mexicans. He has
been preaching disparagement of the
supreme court, the final bulwark ot
our liberty. But it is not a deep dis
ease from which we have been suffer
ing; it's only a rash. Our complexion
is clearing. We are on the road to
recovery. . .

GARFIELD PAYS HIS
RESPECTS TO FORAKER
Ravenna Ohio, Oct. 25. In a speech
here James R. Garfield scored former
senator Jos. B. Foraker for his attack
on Col. Roosevelt Saturday and urged
the voters to defeat United States sen
ator Dick for reelection. He denied
that Foraker in any way represented
the Republican party-
Defending "the new nationalism,
Mr. Garfield said:

NEW MEXICO RETAINS
ITS NAME UNCHANGED
Santa Fe, N. M., Oct 25. In commit
tee of the whole, after an interesting
;ioh-it this forenoon, ana then in con
vention, the preamble of the constitu J
tion was adopted and also arrive j.,
which adopts the name of New Mexi.-o
for the new state, thus setting at iest
the agitation to make it the state of
Lincoln. There was not. a dissecting
-ote on this nor on the Section which
fixes the boundaries as they are de
fined in the treaty of Guadalupe Hi
dalgo, hy the Gadsden purchase, by
the statutes at large of the United
States and as ratified by the legislature
of Texas in 1850. This makes the
103d meridian and the bed of the Rio

land now considered in Texas, and

part of El Paso county.
The boundary dispute between Colo
rado, involving the town of Edith, was
unsolved, as both commonwealths
agree upon the 37th parallel and the
dispute is merely one of an official
survey of that parallel.
There was no afternoon session to
day, as the Republican caucus din not
complete its deliberations last night on
the question of whether the supreme
court shall be elective or appointive.
It was only a brief session that was
Son of Patriot Benito Juarez
Declares the Country Will
Drive It Out.
Benito Juarez was the only president
of Mexico who opposed the bull fight,
and, hearing that the son was like his
father in that regard, officers of the in
ternational Humane society extended
Benito Juarez, jr., an invitation to ad
dress it. Mr. Juarez accepted at once
and read his paper before the assem
bled humanitarians at Washington and
was made an honorary member of the
"Bull fighting is not indicative of a
civilized country; it does not denote
culture," declared Mr. Juarez, as he sat
in the lobby of hotel Orndorff, where
he is stopping en route home to Mex
ico. "During the time of the French in
vasion my mother and I I was just a
young boj' were sent to New York.
Later "we lived in Washington Citj-.
My father was then in Paso del Norte
(now Cludad Juarez).
"But regarding bull fighting. We
are going to win. No, there is no or
ganized movement among Mexicans,
but many prominent men are against it,
speak against it, and act against it.
It is not like prize fighting, xne bull
ring represents a groat investment;
the one in Mexico City is the finest in
the world. Then, too, the raisers of
bulls for the rings rely upon the
amusement. So it is an industry that
must be fought It is hard work, but
wa will win. Argentine has done it.
"I do not remember a great deal
about, the invasion of Maximilian. I
was about 15 years of age when he was
shot I think it was just He had Is
sued a decree that all Mexicans found
in arms should be shot, like bandits.
After that what could you expect? He
"was an "invader. It was not 1) e cause my.
father had a bad heart
"I remember ' Washington, your na
tional capital. ' as ;a? child. While my
mother and I were there, I used to
knpw general Grant's son. Yes, I went
to school at 'the Church Around the
Corner' in New York."
"Politically? I am of the Democratic
party. No we are not antireelectionists
That is a principle which has nothing
to do with a republic. You inaven't it in
the United States. If a man Is good,
he should be reelected. In the last
election we opposed the reelection of
Corral. We did not place a candidate
against Diaz. It is no use.
"In Mexico, everything ias been per
sonality. We need principles, and that
is what the Democrats ar& trying to
give .something which will live after
the man is dead. Corral? He appears
to be sick. I understand he wants to
leave to take the baths at Carlsbad,
Germany. Diaz? He is surrounded by
very smart men, 'scientificos. They
are "not good men; yes, like your trust
magnates. Creel? He is a good man.
He is next in line below Corral, just as
your secretary of state. Madero is a
good man. He is popular here. Reyes
Is not so popular now.
"Yes, I like Roosevelt He is a com
plete man, a little too radical at times,
but a good man. We need a radical
man sometimes. Radical things must
be done sometimes."
Mr. Juarez has visited Ciudad Juarez,
the city named after his father. He
saw and was pleased with the new mon
ument erected to -nis. father. Last night
he was entertained by the Masonic
lodge of Juartz. He has been a Mason
since his 20 th year.

Lost in Trackless Forests of
Canada, Two Daring Air
Pilots May Perish.
TAKE THEM AID
St Louis. -Mo., Oct 25. The plan to
send a balloon with supplies to search
for Alan Hawley and Augustus - Post,
the crew of the missing balloon Amer
ica II., were hastene'd today. S. Louis
Von Puhl, who will pilot the relief
aerostat, will leave here tonight for
Canada, and will begin-his aerial hunt
from Sault Ste. Marie.
This plan was Ceclded upon at a
meeting of the boafu of governors of
the Aero club of St Louis last night.
Von Puhl will take with him J. M.
O'Reilly, his aid in the international
race which started from St. Louis a
week ago Monday. From Sault Ste.
Marie, where the balloon will be in
flated, he will go north into that part
of Canada where Hawley and Post are
now supposed to be. ,
The rescue, party will take along a
month's provisions and a light collap
sible canoe, and they expect to find
favorable air currents which will carry
them into the wilderness and make
possible the location of the America's
crew. The Aero club officials here
are now working on. the theory that
Hawley and Post are to be found in
the countrj- contiguous to James- bay
and north of the Lake Superior region.
. Von Puhl began last night to get his
equipment for the journey together.
Out of Gas Four Days.
Last night marked the end of a week
since the big balloon started. Four
days ago, at the latest, it is estimated,
the gas which buoyed the balloon in
the prevailing northeast winds, must
have lost its potency.
The possibility that the missing
aeronauts may have fallen into one of
the great lakes or even passed beyond
the province of Quebec to the Atlantic
and been lost, is realized.
But the strong probaility is held
to be that they have landed in one of
two immense tracts of Canadian wilder
ness. One of these lies hetween Lake
Huron and Hudson bay. The other
comprises a triangle in eastern, Quebec,
thousands of square miles in extenr, J
formed by the Quebec & Lake St. John
railway, the Saguanay river and the St
