Martin W. Littleton, Former
Texan, Uses Some Warm
' Words and Phrases.
SAYS TAFT IS IN
FOR A TRIMMING
New York, X. T., Oct. 26. Citing the
disparaging things that former presi
dent Roosevelt has .said about former
presidents of the country, Martin W.
Littleton said some rather harsh
things about Mr. Roosevelt last night
and predicted that Roosevelt- -would
soon put Taft in the class "with the
other "undesirables" -who have been
presided.
Littleton is a former Texan, exmayor
01 ine uoroagn 01 cruoKiyii, ana wi
running on the Tammany ticket for
congress in the Oyster 'Bay district.
In citing criticisms passed upon for
mer presidents by Roosevelt, Mr. Lit
tleton added that apparently another
executive and one of Mr. Roosevelt's
own creation, is probably awaiting his
place in "this hall of infamy."
"'He (Roosevelt) has not completed
his symposium of mediocrity," con
tinued Mr. Littleton; "he has not con
cluded his catalog of incompetents;
but there seems to be another presi
dent scheduled to fall under his con
demnation. There seems to be another
who will find his place with Buchanan,
the shifty and selfish politician; with
Tyler, -who was a politician of monu
mental littleness; with "YSan Buren, who
faithfully served the mammon of un
righteousness; with Jackson, who was
ignorant and headstrong; with Monroe,
who was a courteous gentleman of no
especial ability: with Madison, whose
incapicity brought shame and disgrace
to America in the war of 1812; with
Jefferson, the most incapable president
that ever filled the president's chair.
"This president who is awaiting, no
doubt, his place in this hall of infamy,
is one that Mr Roosevelt himself cre
ated. It is a pathetic picture of broken
friendship, it is a sad commentary up
on the stability of political alliances
to see a patient, just, earnest, plain
and rugged judge, who occupies the
position of president, almost crowded
out of his place and excluded from the
prerogatives of his office by a n.n
who continues to reign wherever and
over "whomsoever he may.
"Is it any wonder, then, that he
preaches new nationalism? Need one
be surprised at this strange doctrine"?
Having got his1 views respecting
eiglijt of the presidents of the United
States, and having surmised, his atti
tude toward a ninth, need we be sur
prised that he finds rib difficulty in
urging a radical change in the struc
ture of the government; a change
which is the strangest mixture of so
cialism and empire, a most unique no
tion of despotism and disorder.
"The vast region of Mr. Roosevelt's
political economy he lias peopled 'with
a law-made race of men and -women
who grope their way in the very fog
of diffuse and unrelated powers. In
the wide range of his active mind he
has never encountered a structure of
authority -which he would not change.
a form of government which he would
not alter, a society which he would
not transform. In the long reacn of
a form of government which he would
his ample and enriched years he has
never met with a philosopher whom
he would not advise, a teacher whom
he would not instruct, a soldier whom
he -would not command, a king whose
scepter he would not wield, a book
which he would not rewrite, a religion
which he would not reorganize, a civ
ilization which he would not recon
struct. "
"In government, bound by no law;
In life, bound by no policy; in inter
course, bound by no attachments; in
debate, bound by no record; in society,
bound by no conventions; in conduct,
ound by no tradition; in attack, bound
by no strategy; in retreat, bound by
no order; in ambition, bound by no
limit, he is tlje final, conclusive and
dogmatic answer to the riddles of the I
urtlverse.'

Claims That Sum From
Texas for Taxes Collected
on Territory in Dispute.
TEXAS APPROVED
BOUNDARY LINE
No Doubt of Right of New
Mexico to the Land West
' of the 103d Meridian.
Santa Fe, X. M., Oct. 26. Not only
will New Mexico insist upon the re
turn to the commonwealth of 600.U09
acres along the eastern boundary over
which Texas now exercises jurisdic-
.
on but Wl11 also ask for the P
ment of $10,000,000 and interest, the
aproximate sum of the taxes, l'censes
and other revenue collected from that
strip.
New Mexico may be Willing to take
El Paso county m exchange for the
money claim.
Boundary Dispute
To the question whetilier the surveyor
general of New Mexico had been con
sulted about the boundary dispute,
chairman Isldoro Armijo replied that
the surveyor general had nothing to do
with the proposition, but that the most
eminent legal talent, as well as all the
treaties, statutes and official descrip
tions had been carefully consulted.
Thomas B. Catron then carefully
went over the history of the boundary
dispute, elucidating clearly each step
and point. "Within 60 days after con
gress had established the boundary of
New Mexico to be the 103rd meridian the
legislature of Texas ratified it. There
never has been a change in this boun
dary. He then explained the socalled
Clark survey, which -was never com
pleted and wh 'h, instead of taking
the 103rd meridian -west of Greenwich
took the meridian west, from "Wash
ington, which threw the line 27.9 sec
onds farther wesl dark also failed
to take into consideration the varia
tion of the magnetic needle, and there
fore as his survey proceeded south
ward, it dipped farther and farther
-west so that -while only half a mile
too far -west at the point of starting,
it is from two to three miles west of ;
the 103rd meridian, where It joins New
Mexica's southern boundary.
Survey Never Completed.
The survey was never completed,
was never approved by the surveyor j
general and never ratified by congress.
Texas was paid $10,000,000 cash to re
linquish all Its claims west of the
103rd meridian. Therefore 600,000 acres
now under jurisdiction of that state
belong to New Mexico Catron de
clared. Similarly, New Mexico is entitled to
that land lying between he present
bed of the Rio Grande and the bed
of that river in 1S50, one-half to one
mile farther east, he said. If this land
does not belong to New Mexico, then it
belongs to Mexico, but certainly not

of the Hio Grande was not caused by
its eatin& int Its bank but by re-
to Texas. That the change in the bed
vulslon or cutting across, was estab
lished by the court of private land
claims, he said. '
Survey Not Recognized.
v C. M.- Compton said that the govern
ment has shown clearly that it does
not recognize the Clark survey, for
it has refused to survey a strip three
miles wide this side of the survey be
cause of the claims of Texas, and does
not survey the townships along the
present border of Texas, to the great
embarrassment of the settlers.
J. W. Childers explained how the
Clark survey had been run only 161
mHes south of the point of beginning,
marked with monuments and then
dropped. He explained, how the town-
site of Texico had been first claimed
Dy a Texan, how he had foT the bene-
nt of the settlers made a subsequent
filing and ihow the general land office
had approved tt and he had "been
given a deed for it signed by president
Taft. He hoped that the effort to
shove the line three miles farther east
would succeed, for Texico would then
be the biggest town In New Mexico.
He warned the Republicans, however,
that the many people living on the
strip are all Bemocrats and would
help to make the new state Demo
cratic "I do not care whether they are or
not; they belong in New Mexico." re
torted Thomas B. Catron, and E. S.
Stover added: "Well convert them!"
Catron then said that neither president
Taft nor any other power can change

CORPORATIONS
OWN THE GOLD
Seattle, Wash., Oct. 26. The steames
Umatilla arrived from Nome today with;
511 passengers and 5250,000 In bullion
and was followed closely by the
steamers Victoria and Northwestern
each carrying xgoId and a heavy pas-
senger list.
The exodus' from Nome marks tha
end of a romantic period in the his
tory of the famous gold camp. In tha
summer of 1900 20,000 persons were
assembled on the beach at Nome,
whose sands were rich in gold dust.
The camp has yielded $40,000,000 in
gold and will produce that much mora
in the future, but the rich dirt that
could be worked by hand has been
washed and the mining henceforth will
be done by dredges owned by large
V corporations.
Estimates of the number of persons
now in Nome range from 1000 to 1500.
There are nearly 2500 in the Innoko
and Iditarod districts, and several hun
dred in the diggings north of Nome.
These are still "poor, rryin's camps, "
but Nome has gone the "way of KIoa-o-ike
and will transform no more la
bdr3rs into millionaires. "
