That Umilio Vasquez Gomez, once provisional president of Mexico, who has been making his home in this city, is on his way to join Gen. David de la Fuente, who is supposed to be in the vicinity of Juarez, is the opinion of local rebel sympathizers. Gomez left this city on Monday evening, but where ie has -gone or how long he expects to be gone cannot be learned. At the Gomez home, 113 City street, the house maid is the sole occupant and she is as talkative as a clam on the subject of Gomez's departure. Copies of a manifesto purporting to have been issued at Puebia in Novem ber have been received by the local Tunta which claims that entire accord exists between Orozco and Zapata and other rebel chiefs and. that they have decided on Gen. Geronimo Trevino of Monterey for president, with the cab inet officers published In The Herald i his week Gen. Trevino is said by local junta ists to have accepted the presidency. CoL Pascual Orozco, father of the revolutionary general, held here by re el u est of the Mexican government, will have a hearing next Monday morning Tefore United States commissioner R.

MORMONS RETURN TO COLONIES IN MEXICO Moimons Are returning to Mexico in (Continued on next page.) Committees of Both House and Senate Are Busy at Work on Measure. HOUSE NOT IN SESSION TODAY ANTA FE, N. M-. Jan- 31. Only the legislative senate is in session to day the house having adjourned until Monday to give the Joint commit tees on finance time to work on the county salaries bills. This measure will affect every county offices in the state and has resulted in a prolonged session of the senate and house committee on finance, which will probably last until Saturday night The county officials in New Mexico have been without pay since their election, governor McDon ald having vetoed the salary bill, which was presented by the -first legislature. The counties have been divided into five classifications for this session ac cording to assessed valuation. Thoy are as follows: Four millions, Ber nalillo, Chfaves, Colfax, Dona Ana. Grant and San Miguel; over two mil lions, Eddy Luna. Qtero and Union: over a million and three quarters and less than two million, Curry. Guadalupe, Lincoln, Mora, Quay, Rio Arriba, Roose velt, San Juan and Valencia: over a million, McKinley, Sierra and Torrance; under one million, Sandoval and Taos counties. The committees have reached tenta tive agreements on all but the last counties, but the salaries, it is believed, will not as yet meet with the approval of the house and a new bill may be drafted before Monday. County of ficials from all oter the state arc here. Anti-White Slave Bill. The passage of a stringent anti-white slave bill by the senate and of a bill creating the county of Sumner by the house, featured today's session of the legislature. Senator Evans's bill providing for the sterilization of criminals and insane persons was defeated in the senate. Among a score of new bills intro duced Sn both houses, chief Interest centers in an act by senator Walton, providing for the furnishing of free school text books and levying a special tax to defray the expense thereof. Committees Busy. With the senatorial matter out of the way, the members of both houses are turning their attention to the work before them and there Is every evidence that many laws will be passed. The committees are meeting daily and reports being made to the respective houses and the bills put on the calendar for action t- ensuing day. There is a very persist.. uv r that same of the- legislation, -r-g put Wroel ise!ng enacted ... fulfill ment of tfeeproralses made fey-Sail Re publicans to a few members who were wavering ia their allegience.to the senator, but. of course, this cannot be proved. At least this much shows from t the voting on some oi uie diiis. uiai uie members voting "aye" also l voted for Fall, and the persistence with which this certain bunch hangs together L probably gives a foundation for this re f port Tucumcarl t.nters utniai. Representative J. W. Campbell when he rose to a question of -personal privilege Thursday, read a telegram from the city oierk of Tucumcarl, which stated that there was no or dinance on the city statute books pro hibiting Mexicans from being shaved in American barbershops as represen tative Llewellyn" had charged in the debate on the Spanish-American for senator resolution Monday. The Sumner county bill, which would create a new county out of remote corners of Quay, Guadalupe, Chaves and Roosevelt counties, is now the storm center of legislation. Thursday morning some 16 petitions we.re re ceived from different sections of Guadalupe county stating that the signers did not object to the partition of their county to form the new county. I while almost an equal number were presented opposing the new county. There promises to be quite a fight on this bill, but it will probably carry as it is one of the bills the Fall men are alleged to have promised to pass. State superintendent of public educa tion, A. N. White, presented a com munication asking for an appropria tion of $1000 for printing the publica tions of the departmenr. Committee Reports.

CONGRESSMEN JOIN THE PETITIONERS WASHINGTON, D. C. Jan. 31. Four hundred women from every section of the country, led by Mrs. Clara Colby, of Portland, Oregon, appeared before the house committee on presidential and congres sional elections to appeal for the pas sage of the French bill to give women the right to vote for representatives J in congress. Heading the petitioners was the Rev. Olympie Brown, of Ra cine, Wis., president of the Federated Women's Equality league of the United States, and a dozen members of con gress, including representatives from ; each of the nine equal suffrage states. The hearing was held in the largest of the house committee rooms which I ....... i -iiiji .,i. ,f, the stenographers in the building be- I gan to desert their offices and join in the demonstration. Women of all ages, some with waving plumes, silk, satins and furs, stood throughout the hearing, a few had chairs and others camped on the floor surrounded by their wraps, hats and parasols. Mrs. Colby pleaded for the constitu tional amendment prohibiting states from disfranchising citizens on account of sex. Declaring "that the constitu tion says the representatives shall Be chosen by the people of the several states," she asked, "are women people?" She added that American women would continue their earnest and dignified ef forts to gain political freedom," as long as mjght be necessary to gain their purpose. Representative Mondell, of Wyoming; Raker, of California; Lafferty, of Ore gon; and others told the committee of the success of equal suffrage in their states. Representative Hayden, of Ari zona was included in the delegation of congressmen. Tramp S"h!iis Owned by Trust. High rates for trans-oecanic freight ers are caused by supply and demand rather than by "conference agreements" among steamship lines, W. G. Sickel, of the Hamburg-American Steamship com pany, told the house shipping trust committee. . "The doubling in freight rates. In the past two or three years." he said, "is the result of a vast increase in ship ping which now exceeds the amount of tonnage available to carry it. We are forced to maintain a reasonable rate by the fear of competition of regular lines outside the conference or tramps. We get as much as possible out of the Dustness. :7hnnr tm mr -trnmgrg Jtali,rifrl'"'i,'Tr control rateirare practically ownpa. oy l tne eomerence lines, saio. represonw.' tlve Humphrey. "I don't admit that" "But I- make the statement," said Mr. Humphrey. "A majority of these tramps are owned or cdntroled by the conference lines. The conference lines use them to handle their surplus freight" Debate Single Term. When the senate took up the single presidential term today, senator Root's amendment to make the constitutional amendment to take effect March 4, 1817, was defeated by a viva voce vote, but by demanding a roll call he got It be fore the senate again for further con sideration. . As a substitute senator Hitchcock proposed an amendment to let Wilson, Roosevelt or Taft have one six year term under the "new amend ment "When we except these persons from its operations, we are making it en tirely personal," declared senator Bo rah, "we might as well name these three men- In the amendment as being exempt from Its provisions. We prac tically would amend the constitution for their convenience." Senator Paynter then proposed an amendment to make the six year term take effect in 192L Senator Works, au thor of the original resolution, endorsed senator Hitchcock's plan. Senator Clapp, Progressive, took em phatic exception to this position. Senator Sullivan urged the adoption of the Root amendment setting March 4, 1917 as the date. Senator Poindex ter declared that if there was any danger of any man getting into office on account of his popularity that dan ger should be eliminated. , Xot Aimed at Roosevelt. "I did not believe that any one would Insist that this legislation was aimed at Col. Roosevelt" declared senator Cummins, "but it has been very busily urged through the United States that we are legislating to make Roosevelt ineligible. Such statements must be abhorrent to CoL Roosevelt." The debate centered about the dec laration by senator Williams, that un less such amendments were adopted so as to make Roosevelt Taft and Wilson eligible for another term, the friends of Roosevelt and others might oppose ratification of the amendment by the states. Republican and Democratic senators who urged that Roosevelt Taft and Wilson all be made eligible for one more elective term, met the opposition of the Progressives and of some of their own party members. The Pro gressive senators objected to a con stitutional amendment that limited the right of voters to select their president; wane tney insisted that If any proni bition were made it should apply to all men equally. The amendments by senator Hitch cock to make the proposed restriction apply only to persons" who bave "held the office by election after March 4, 1917 or discharged Its duties for two years or more," after that time, were defeated, 32. to 27.- The senate then voted down senator Root's amendment which was simplv to make the single term restriction take effect after March 4, 1917.

Prohibition Measure. The house committee on liquor traf fic today reported favorably the- bill by Lewelling, which seeks to-place statu tory prohibition on the- law books of Texas. Mr Lewelling declares the bill will pass in the house. Should such a bill pass in the legislature the chances are the governor would veto the meas ure. Insurance Measure. The house committee on insurance today reported favorably a bill placing reciprocal insurance associations under the juristdiction of the commissioner of insurance and banking. This bill is similar to the Murray bill in the senate, which is favored by the reciprocal con cerns and at the same time destroys wildcat concerns. "Woman Suffrage For Texas. The house committee on constitution al amendments today reported favor ably the proposed constitutional amendment allowing female suffrage. Representatives Kirby and Buchanan gave notice of an adverse minority re port. There is a similar resolution now pending in the senate. Election of Senators.

After consuming the entire after noon in Its consideration the house yesterday passed to a third reading the Katy consolidation bill by a vote of 98 to 29.

Representative Rogers yesterday af ternoon introduced in the house a joint resolution submitting a constitutional amendment which provides for the re call of a public officer by the electors qualified to vote for his election. The proposed amendment calling for the Initiative and referendum has already been introduced in the senate. Salaries For CommUfiloners. A bill is to be introduced in the house by representative McAskill of San Antonio providing a salary of about S2800 a year for the county commis sioners in the larger counties of the state. While the bill will have a gen eral application, the idea is primarily to relieve the situation in Bexar county. Mr. McAskill points out that at present the commissioners receive only S3 per day for their services while In the cities of the state where the commission form of government prevails, the city commissioners re ceive from $3000 to $4000 a year. He considers the duties of the county com missioners as important as those of the city commission. Another reason. Is that it is apparent that the anti-fee bill will pass and then the task of fix ing salaries for the county officials will devolve upon ihe county commis sioners. For Better Cottonseed. Senator Willacy has introduced a bill in the senate of more than ordlnary importance. This bill provides for the creation of a department of seed selec tion and improvement as a part of the penitentiary system. This department is to be worked by the convicts under the supervision of a skilled superin tendent Senator Willacy points out that the Texas cotton crop is approximately 4,000,000 bales a year and, by the farmers using Improved seed, they will be able to save not less than $1 per bale or a total saving of $4,000,000 a year. The department will grow the seed for distribution to the farmers at cost of production and thus place the seed in the hands of practically all of the farmers of the state. The depart ment Is to be under the supervision nf j the prison commission. jo I'roicci sirenms. Senator McNealus of Dallas has ob tained a favorable report from the senate committee on puoiir health on his bill to prevent the pollution of rivers and streams of the state. He will make an effort to obtain earlv con sideration of the measure in -the senate after which its passage will be pressed In the house. This bill occasioned con siderable debate in the senate commit tee when it was up for consfderatlon. To Increase School Fund. Representative Grinstaff has prepared a bill which he will introduce In the house, which will have the effect of taking 1 percent from the permanent school fund of the state annually and add it to the available school fund, this to be done for a period of 10 years. The permanent school fund reaches the enormous sum of $70,000. 000 and 1 percent would yild $700,000, which would 'implement the available school fund The necessitv for this (Continued on page 6). 1 AND HALE MILLION TO RUNARIZONA The State Needs That Much Money For Two Years, Without Capitol Addition.

Included In the auditor's estimate are the amounts necessary for the opera tion of the state and its institutions during the two years that will elapse before another session of the legisla ture is held. It does not include any appropriation for the proposed new wing to the capltoL . Among the items is $o0,000 for the state fair, together with an appropria tion of $75,000 for a new exhibition building, and $10,000 a year for Im provements. , The state debt Is In the neighborhood of $3,500,000 and $55,000 a year Is needed to meet interest charges. The actual cost of maintaining the state government for the two years is esti mated at $1,750,000 while theimprove ments on state institutipns will cost $571,095. Ninety Day Session. Hard work and unceasing bickering for three long months is what the Ari zona legislators expect the special ses sion, called by governor George Hunt to convene next Monday, to bring. "I don't look for this session to end within less than 90 days," said a mem ber' of the Maricopa county delegation. "It is going to be one long fight, too. We will be kept here till we are worn out "In the first days of the session, there will be little except quarreling. Nothing will be accomplished till we all get tired. More will be accom plished In the last 30 days than in the first 60. I can no chance of getting everything out of the way In 60 days. In his eall the governor placed no time limit on the sessions so it can con tinue indefinitely. The hot weather will b creeping upon us before we quit" Board of Control Measure. .Tii st what th first clash will be over Is problematical. It Is more like ly to be the much dlsaussed board of control bill than anything else. Representative Leon Jacobs, of Mari copa county, has a bill prepared to abolish the board of control, which now consists- ef the gwvernos, audUat- ana a citizen member, and elect a state manager. At present the citizen mem ber of the board Is practically mana ger. He can do nothing, however, with out the consent of the governor and auditor. . The reactionary Democrats, opposed to governor Hunt want a manager elected, and they want the chief execu tive to have little power over him. They are a little troubled, however, by the fact that K they pass the bill at this session a manager will have to be appointed until the next general election. That appointment would have to be left to the governor, and the administration of one of his appointees, from their point of view, would be no improvement over the present sys tem. , , . Some way to get around -leaving the appointment to the governor is being sought by the legislators who are op posed to the administration. They in timate wisely that they have something up their sleeves that will surprise the Hunt element Capital Punishment. Another question that Is going to furnish ground for a long drawn out fight is the abolition of capital punish ment Governor Hunt is violently op posed to the taking of human life by the state. In the penltentiacy at Flor ence are four murderers, sentenced to hang months ago but reprieved by tne governor until the legislature could take some action on the capital punish ment law. If the law is repealed, the lives of the murderers will be spared. Sentiment on the question varies widely throughout the state. The gov ernor has made both friends and en emies by the stand he has taken. The lawmakers have kept their ears to the ground with great industry but many of them are unable to determine how a majority of their constituents feel about It . In his message governor Hunt will Include several thousand words oi argument against capital punishment Speakership Fight. As much could be told six weeks ago as today about the probable outcome of the- fight between Sam B. Bradner, of Cochise, and -H. H. Linney, of "ia vapai, for the speakership of Uie house. Bradner has stood pat from the first and said that if the members of the house didn't want him to continue as speaker he did not want the posi tion. Both he ad M. G. Cunnlff. Presi dent of the senate, have taken the stand that the old presUing officers should hold over through, all special sessions. Cunnlff has won Us fight and will be made president of the senate? even if he has to be elected again, but Bradner Is not so sure Jf his position. The reactionary Democrats have groomed Linney. who Is half way pro gressive, for the speakership and are .making a desperate effort to unseat Bradner. They are lying low in tn last days before the session but they will be heard from Monuay moraine. COVER.VJPMT EXPERT rRAISES ARIZONA TAXATION alETHODS Phoenix, Ariz.. Jan 31. According to E H.

New York Stock Exchange Thinks Such a Law Would Cause Disastrous Results. GOVERNOR SULZER HAS DIFFERENT VIEW a LBANY, N. Y.. Jan. 31. The New Zjk York stock exchange put iself on record today as opposed to incorporation and against tho enact ment of a maximum rate of interest on call loans. Gov. Sulzer was, so informed by a committee representing the ex change and was advised that the enact ment of such laws would cause disas trous results. John G. Mllburn, counsel for the ex change, declared that the incorporation of the stock exchange would be fraught with disaster and would seriously inter fere with its disciplinary powers. He pointed out that the exchange Is a voluntary organization and its mem bers must abide by its decisions. "Its punishments are tremendously effective now," he said. "When a man is suspended, his voca tion is at an end. If the exchange is compelled to Incorporate, its decisions could be questioned in the courts. Long litigation would follow and the court would have to pass upon questions which are now dealt with quickly and effectively. "I don't see what good can be accom plished by. incorporation," he added. Other Exchanges Incorporated. Gov. Sulzer reminded Mr. Mllburn that tie cotton exchange and practical ly all the other New York markets are incorporated. "Many people of the south and west have informed me," continued the gov ernor, that tney Deiieve it wuma " good thing for the stock exchange to incorporate." "Isn't it true that a customer can be wiped out by high interest rates for call loansT asked the governor. The committee replied that such a situation had never developed. The governor then questioned the committee concerning the activity of the American Can stocks. He wanted to know if recent large sales of this stock were made by bona fide holders. The committee said the exchange was making an investigation of this mat ter, but expressed the opinion that the sales were genuine. ir XTllKn-n onri nTecifrlAnt MabOn aS- sured the governor that the exchange would cooperate with him in making necessary reforms, but cautioned him to go slowly in dealing with "the more delicate subjects" in Ms message.
