X AI1I9II P" m I Convention Inserts Qlause That All Officeholders Must Speak English. , SWALLOWS IT HARD, HOWEVER Santa Fe, N. M., Nov. 1- The con stitutional convention held its second evening session last night and finished the article on military, making three articles disposed of in. one day, the other two articles having been the bill of rights and the ordinance of com pact -with the United States. The session last evening was devoid of features except that 'delegate E. D. TIttman declared that the military clause adopted might some day furnish an excuse for a standing army and compulsory military service in New Mexico. The Republican majority stood to gether on every proposition that came to a vote. For the first time a mem ber of the Democratic minority, H. M. Dougherty, was called to preside over committee of the whole. BIH of Rights. The features of the bill of rights are that it includes that "the rights, privileges and immunities, civil, poli tical and religious guaranteed the peo ple of New Mexico by the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo shall be preserved inviolate," which gives the Pueblo in dians citizenship and will prevent the disfranchising of Spanish-speaking citizens, the retention of the present grand jury system .and an authoriza tion to the legislature toy pass laws providing that in civil cases, juries may give a verdict by less than a funanimous vote. The ordinance compact embodies all the provisions made mandatory by the enabling act, which as Thomas B. Cat ron declared on the floor, are not alto gether acceptable to New Mexico, are in part unconstitutional and are ac cepted by the state only under con straint. This article was amended so as to prevent the legislatures from ever appropriating any sum of money in payment of the socalled militia warrants and other invalid indebted ness. Fifteen petitions were presented for statewide prohibition. Criticism of English Clause. Sharp criticism of the clause In the enabling act passed by congress, that; all territorial officers speak, read, write, and understand the English language, was the feature of the ses- j sion. By -unanimous vote of 100 to 0, & clause was inserted in the report of the committee on ordinance compact with the United States indicating to congress that the language clause is to be inserted in the constitution under compulsion. It was declared that it has been more than 40 years since a territorial officer in New Mexico held office without being able to handle the English language, although the probate judge even of Santa Fe, the capital, transacts business only through an interpreter, and interpret ers are used in the convention itself for certain delegates. The section re ferring to the language clause, as amended, was adopted by a rising vote, 100 to 0. The section reads as fol lows: "This state shall never enact any law restricting or abridging the right of suffrage on account of race, color or previous condition of , servitude; 'And in compliance with the act of congress known as the enabling act, it is provided that ability to read, write and speak and understand the English language sufficiently well to conduct the duties of the office with out the aid of an interpreter shall- be necessary qualification for all stato officers and members of the legislature of this state." Republicans Confer. This afternoon the Republicans held a conference on the report of the committee on judiciary, which -will probably be taken up at the session this afternoon.

No disorder ran reported durln t i i a h b a Over 825,000 in Cash Is Al ready Subscribed by Two Towns Tired of Waiting. TO OWN AND OPERATE LINE THEMSELVES Artesia, N. M., Nov. 1. The people of Hope, N. M., and this place have al ready subscribed over $25,000 in cash toward building a railroad to connect the two cities. The people around here are tired of waiting for that long piomised Short Line and they now pur pose to build the road themselves at least a section of it. It took only a few hours to raise the ' first $25,000, most of it beingpledged in Hope. N Estimated Cost. The subscriptions are on the follow ing basis: Watered land within one mile of town, 10 per acre, watered land within two and a half miles 7.50 per acre, watered land further out $5 per acre. v The cost of building the road from f Artesia to Hope will be about 111.- 000 or about $1 per foot. It is esti mated that $75,000 can be raised ir the Hope community and 35,000 at Ar tesia. L.aad Values Enhanced. There are 12,000 acres of land under the Hope community ditch estimating that each six hour right will water i.0 acres of land. The most pessimistic will tell you that a railroad will en hance the value of this land on an average of 25 per acre. The railroad then will enhance property values around Hope at least 300.01)0. Plan of Operations. The subscription plan provides for payment in cash or 7 percent mortgage notes, payable in one, two and three jears from January 1, 1911. When sub scriptions to the amount of 100.000 shall have been received a meeting to perfect temporary organization shall be called at Hope. N. M. The officers elected at this meeting shall have full and complete control of the funds subscribed and power to build the railroad. Each vote shall be based on 100 subscription. People to Own the Road. Those who have studied the proposi tion believe they can take the noos and mortgages, put them up as collat-" eral and borrow enough to complete the road half way and then bond that part of the road for enough to com- plete the line into Hope. The bonds will be retired as the one, two and J three year subscriptions come in. in this way the people of Hope and Ar tesia will own and control the road in addition to receiving the advance on their land and the facilities and con veniences that the road will sure1: bring.

POLICE FORCED TO CHARGE THE RIOTERS Chicago, III., Nov. 1. Society women of Chicago came out in full force today to aid in the work of picketing by the striking garment workers. At least 15,000 of the 40.000 garment -workers on a strike are women, but before they will be allowed on the picket lines, they, as well as the girls, on a strike, must attend "picket scnool." Mounted police in the business dis trict this afternoon rode into a crowd that had been gathered by the strikers who were attempting to parade with out a permit. Many persons were knocked down and more than a dozen injured, including two girls and two children. The disorder took place on Adams street, near Fifth avenue. One of the injured persons is-said to have been a society woman who was acting as picket for the strikers. She was hur riedly removed and her identity was not learned. The police soon dis persed the , crowd. Several other disturbances led to riot calls for the police. Two fac tories were stoned and many windows broken. Today, a sympathetic picketing squad "according to the rules'' was in augurated. Legal talent was con sulted yesterday and rules for the pickets were drawn up in order to keep them within the leter of the law, so the police would have no pretext for arrest. These rules are similar to those used by the shirtwaist makers of New York in their long strike for improved work ing conditions and are expected to do much in winning sympathy for the strikers. Pickets are forbidden to stop any one or to stand in front of picketed shops. "Plead, persuade, appeal, but do not threaten" is one of the rules.
