"This has been to me a delightful day," he said, "because the New Jersey delegation came in such force and showed such genuine and generous en thuisasm. Moreover, there were so many old and tried friends among them that I was able to get all sorts of useful counsel from them." There was unlimited speculation and little else concerning the course the nominee would take regarding the gov ernorship of New Jersey. Judge West cott. of Camden, and Mr. Hudspeth ad vised him not to resign until about in auguration day. in case he is elected.

The final fest of strength between the two factions will be scheduled to come this afternoon at an adjourned ' . meeting of the board of directors. It was believed that it would then be de cided whether the directorate will at tempt to bar from the annual meeting all but active members of at least 30 days standing. If the ruling is made, it will be a blow to several thousand teachers who have been enroled less than 30 days. The proposal to so eliminate the vot ing power was made by secretary Ir win Shepard several months ago, and it is said a majority of the directors litve considered it favorably.

The company will have to erect a. sub-power station at Ysleta to fur nish power on that end ot the line. This station will cost ? 90,000 and will be of reinforced concrete.

The Nickle To Be Dressed Up Uncle Sam's lowly nickel is going to enter society. Instead of being the plebian price of a big beer or a pack age of peanuts, the nickel is to be touched up, dressed up, and made a thing of beauty and more or less iov forever. The decree has gone forth from the treasury department that the nickel is a homely bird. Instead of the familiar old goddess of liberty, a charging buf falo Is to be racing across the face of the five-cent piece. This Is intended to mean that you will be buffaloed out of your last five-cent coin If you are not extremely careful. The reverse side with the old familiar "V" is to be eliminated to the scrap heap and an Indian head put in its place. Guessing again, the indian sign is to be on all who attempt to beat this high cost of living. The new nickel will be the treasury department's high brow conception of art as she is understood. J. W. Fraser. of New York, is preparing the new design, which is to be submitted to sec- retary MacVeagh for his approval. and Mr. Latta's "SO" Cosdillacs and Mr. Potter's "30" Chalmers. All are enthusiastic over the trip, and Mr. Williams says he is surprised that El Pasoans have not found out long ago about the beauties of the country which they crossed and have not already been motoring there in large parties.

Pascual Orozco, jr., who was at Encinillas, 181 miles south of Juarez. Gen. Orozco is reported to have or dered a continuance of his policy of earlier days in the revolution that for eigners should not be molested. It was stated on good authority that Gen. Orozco would leave Encinillas during the day, arriving in Juarez late in the afternoon for a conference with his father and Felipe Guiterrez, rebel gov ernor of the state of Chihuahua. A serious phase of the situation, however. Is the lack of communication between Casas Grandes and the insur recto bands now threatening Colonia Oaxaca in Sonora. It is feared that with the rebels near Colonia Morelos, trouble might be precipitated before orders from the rebel chief could be delivered, as the Mormons have armed, themselves and are ready to resist the demands of the rebels for corn and other supplies.
