Convention Inserts Qlause
That All Officeholders
Must Speak English. ,
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
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
"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

Over 825,000 in Cash Is Al
ready Subscribed by Two
Towns Tired of Waiting.
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:
