LAS VEGAS SELECTED. The Democratic Territorial Conven tion Will Be Held There. Tornm of tlx, Supreme Court Chungud Hunker Dañe' Sentence lias Keen Commuted. Santa Fk, Feb. 10. The territorial democratic central committee met here hint Wednesday fur the purpose of se lecting ii time and place for the holding of the next territorial democratic con vention and for the transaction of oilier business. The hour set for the assemb ling of the committee was 11 a. in., but some of the members oí the committee expected to leave Albuquerque on the morning train and as it happened to be late, t lie members present met and adjourned until 7 p. m. It wan considerably later when the belated members of the committee ar rived and business was commenced. As all of the democratic editors of the ter ritory had been invited to attend and also the government and territorial Dlli eials, the attendance was large. Twenty seven members of the committee were present or represented by proxy. Dur ing the day there had been considerable discussion among the members of the committee as to the place for holding the convention, but when the matter came up at the meeting of the commit tee, only one motion was made ami that was to have the convention at Las Veg as, June 15. It was carried without a dissenting voice. There was some dis cussion over the apportionment of dele gates, but it was tinaully decided that each county nhould be entitled to one delegate for each one hundred votes or fraction of one hundred over fifty, cast for Anthony Joseph at the last election. The resignation of Chairman Crist was placed More the committee, but on mo tion of Sheriff Cunningham, it was laid on the table for future action. Mr. Crist admitted that he was a stumbling block in the way of the party, but he was allowed to hold his position for the present. A committee on revolutions was ap pointed by the chair only a short time before manv of the members of the com mittee were obliged to go to the train The committee made the following re port : Kesolved, that the democtatic parly of the territory of New Mexico is heartily in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver, equally with gold, at the ratio of 16 to 1, without wailing for iIih action or consent, of any other nation, and that we invite all believers in such bi-metall-ism in New Mexico to attend our pri maries and act with the democratic party in striving to attain this great relict to the common people. Kesolved, That it is the earnest desire of this committee that New Mexico lie admitted to the Union at the earliest practical moment, and that we pledge our unqiialilicd support and bespeak the support of the democratic party of this territory to any just measure looking to that end, believing that the interests of all of the people of the territory would be advanced thereby. kesolved, That we commend the ac tion of the recent republican territorial 1 committee with reference to statehood as eminently fair and just and stand ready to 'lend our heartiest support to any bill framed on the broad and gener ous lilies therein laid down; but we un qualifiedly oppose and denounce as un fair and unjust the apportionment feat ure of the bill for the admission of New Mexico into the I'nion as a slate, pro vided for in the hil introduced at the bo out about the end of next year. It is now conceded, even by democrats who favor the gold standard, that it will be necessary for tho d-'tn wrnts of New Mexico to nominate a free silver man on a free silver platform tor dele gate to co lgiv-s ibis fall.
