AFFAIRS AT WASHINGTON; EVENTS OF IMPORTANCE! Special to the Nrw, Washington, 1). C. April 17. The Committee on Territories of the House, which has the statehood (natters for N ., Mexico and Ariz ona in charge, has very clearly de fined its position, which is in line with the program ol the Democratic caucus. The maiority membership in their deliberations decided (hat joiut action upon the matters ol the two Territi tries would be pres sed. and Chairman Flood of tbe ; Owen's suggestions that Mr. Dav Committeeon Territories has intro- j enport introduced bis resolution in duced a bill seeking independent j the House.

The Territories Commit-1 stitution and not rely upon aug- tee has named some of its of its Mem- j hers to consult with President Talt tor the purpose of ascertaining whether tbe suggestion which im enated from citizens committee of Arizona to the effect that their char ter he so aiuei.. Ir. 1 as to make the Executive approval unnecessary, would be acceptable. The posi tion of the President in relation to this has been defined, and while Mr. Taft is entitrly willing to have tbe controversy thrashed ou( in Congress, he doe not propose in the meantime 10 lose any of his rights, whi n it comes to finally passing on Arizona matters. The Territories (..ommittee at their'.en thr meeting on Thursday, decided that they would take up no other sub ject than that of statehood for (he (wo Territories, which means (ha( a targe volume ot legislaron that has been proposed will have to re main over until the regular session next winter; and if the disposition shown by this Committee is adher ed to by other Committees' ot tbe House, tbe probabilities are, that the session will not be a long one. It may terminate by the first ol July. The plan for statehood now 'crams clearly defined, and well in- their representatives on the Corn Inrrned statesmen are hardly ablejmittee, being Madison, from Kan to figure out how the affairs ol New sat, and I .enroot of Wisconsin.

The Honorable Aliiert B. I' all ot Three Rivers has given an inter- view to a Washington newspaper 1 poses to give immediate considera upon tbe statehood matter which ; tion of the Canadian reciprocity he says: "New Mexico will be ! matter, and certain phases of the admitted separately or jointly with tariff which have been previously Arizona at this session depends outlined.

Naturally, the Democrats want Anion admitted along with New Mexico, as the lat ter probably will send two Repub lican senators and the iortner two Democrats. It seems that Senator Owen ol Oklahoma is opposed Id the New Mexico constitution. 1 presume it was following 1 Senator gestionx made to him by others, 1 believe he would conclude that some of his objections are unten able. New Mexico iu adopting ber constitution acted upon (he theory (ha( it was a fundamental law, as distinguish! d from stattitoty laws enacted by the legislature, or, as in the case ot Oklahoma, lor in stance, initiated by the people. Even the Oklahoma constitution recognizes this difference. New Mexico sought to provide a pro gressive, up-to-date law, and to leave the legislature the enactment of ordinary legislation." Delegate Andrews bas been giv- rst-clas- Committee as signment:, in tbe new House. These places are Territories, Agri culture, and Public Lands. No member has served better than the New Mexico representative. Perhaps no single act on tbe part ol Leader Mann bas done more to bring the party together than his make-up to the Committee of Rul es. In the arrangement of tbis Committee the old (ime Regulars have been entirely satisfied, while at the same (ime the Insurgents have been given twe Members, Democrats remain consistent to the position they have taken in the af fairs ol the House, that tbe Insur gents' idea as to the manner of the dispatching of public business can at last be obtained through tbe co operation of the progressive Demo crats and the Insurgents. Or in other words the Insurgents claim control of this great Committee of the House.

Wool and cotton will be considered when the reciprocity agreement and free list measures are out of the way, It is expected that this proposed legislation will arouse a big fight. There is a general expression of approval of the administration of Honorable Champ Clark as Speaker of the House. The Committee on Ways and Means having taken the responsibility for the appointment of Committees out of Mr. Clark's hands, the usual dissatisfaction expressed by mem bers who have met with disappoint ment in their assignments) has been carefully concealed, and no one has thought to charge their ill Mothers Day I Sunday, May 14 Santa Fe, N. M., April 15 Governor William J. Mills today j issued a proclamation, naming Sunday, May 14th, as Mother s Day in New Mexico, and urging the proper observance of the day. The proclamation reads: Mothers' Dav. Nineteen hundred and ten was the first year in this territory in which tbe governor issued a pro clamation setting apart a day to be observed as Mothers Day. I consider it a great privilege to be permitted to again name such a j day 1 hope that the practice will be continued in the future so that Mothers' Day will be observed in every state, territory and posses sion of our great nation. It is proper that one day in each year should be set apart to be es pecially devoted to thinking of and paying tribute to our mothers it alive, and to their memories if they have passed away. Bv their ex ample and training, mothers have made the American people what they are today. Mother's love is synonomous with all that is good and holy; whatever measure ol happiness and success one has had in life is largely due to the guid ance and influence of his mothei, the woman who loved him better than any one else on earth: Now, therefore, 1, William J. Mills, governor of the territory ol New Mexico, do hereby designate and appoint Sunday, May 14th, on, as Mothers' Day, and rec ommend (tut on said day all our citizens attend divine worship; that each of them, if possible, wear a white flower as typical of the pur ity, sweetness and love of our mothers; and I further suggest that all priests, ministers and preachers of the. gospel on that day preach sermons, taking as their text "Mother and Mothers' Love."

W ile Mr. Clark is a partisan in e sense of the word, he has alwny been admired beca of his absolRte fairness to 1 political appointments, and things are running exceedingly smooth. The endorsement et William Rand olph Hearst is a big; feather in the cap of Mr. Clark ad has added somewhat to the strength of the movement to malta the new Speak er a presidential eandidate. Mr. Hearst designates Mr. Clark as the "Party Pilot" and savs that the Democratic party "must avoid unsound radicalism or dishonest conservatism. He adds that if the progressives of tbe two parties fail in their objects, that a new party composed of Democrats and Republicans will be formed.

Come. Madero Set On Capturing Juarez El Paso, Tex., April 20 Gen eral Madero rode from his camp dose to tbe outskirts of Juarez this morning and examined the city's fortifications through field glasses which are beinr placed in position to shell the town. The insurrectos are said to have receiv ed a fresh supply of food and am munition during last night, not withstanding the strict American patrol. It is certain, however, there will be no fighting before midnight unless the federals should attack. El Paso, Tex., April 20. Fran cisco I. Madero bas refused abso lutely to grant an armistice as sug gested by Dr. Gomez at Washing ton. He sent word today he would talk armistice after the battle of Juarez and then only. "They want an armistice to get up rein forcements, that's all," he said. "We will fight first. My army will win or be whipped at Juarez before we will talk armistice." Tbis morning Madero sent official notice to the foreign consuis of I uarez that he might attack the town at any hout after twelve o'clock tonight. Small bands of insurrectos ap peared on the river fron( near tbe El Paso smelter this morning. They came down lor water. The insurrecto army is hack in the hills nearby, awaiting this evening to see if General Naivarro yields to the demands made that he surrend er Juarez. American Consul Edwards in Juarez at 11 o'clock this morning morning warned all loreigners and non-combatants to seek places ot safety Washington, April ao. Dr. Vasquez Gomez bas not relaxed his efforts to bring about a cessa tion of military operations, despite Madero's ultimatum. He has sent a message to Madero, advis ing him that the armistice take ef fect at midnight, April 31. Dr. Gomez tent another urgent message to Madero via El Paso at 2:30 tbis afternoon, cautioning him again( attacking Juarez at present. Gomez indicated that witb the grave situation in Washington con ceraing tbe Mexican reply to the American note, it was moat nec essary to prevent any further in ternational complicado. advice to self-appointed advisers to Democracy is to go borne and leave the work to Champ Clark.. A big (apáñese war story was ex ploded in Washington and through out the country during the week but President Taft killed it so early that no effect was noticeable. The smoothness with which the House majority is attending to its affairs is almost unheard of in Con gressional history. There seems to be a perfect understanding among the Democratic Members, and if the present peaceful condi tion is continued, the length of the session will be materially shorten ed. The only rumor of discontent is in relation to patronage matters but these differences are in no way serious. Some Apple Trees On Urraca Ranch A large force of men are at work on the Urraca ranch this week planting apple trees. There will be over one hundred acres put in apples this spring by different parties who have purchased land there. Geo. H. Webster jr.. owner cf the ranch, will put about fifty acres in apples; A. J. Ladd of Denver will put in 20 acres; Dr. Streicher of Raton, will have 20 acres, and J. J. Nairn will put out 25 acres. Dynamite is being used to open the holes for tbe trees which will be planted on th. 30 toot triangular plan. The work is under the supervision of Mr. Edwards, an apple orchard expert. Of tbis large number of apple trees there will be only five dif ferent varities planted, those that have proven the most satisfactory and given, tbe best results under tests. Heavy pruning will be re sorted to the first year in order to give a good root growth to tbe young trees. They will be irri gated three times each season Mr. Webster recently platted a part of the Urraca ranch in small tracts to suit purchasers, at a very reasonable price. Tnere is plenty of water for irrigation and there is an excellent opportunity tor the man ot small means to se cure him a home in the best part ol tbe best county ot New Mexico and make an independent lorttine growing the famous Cimarron ap ples. A Rare Opportunity Mrs. Nutter, Territorial presi dent of tbe W. C. T. U., will speak to tbe ladies ol Cimarron Sunday, at 3 p. m. She will also have charge of the evening serv ices. Tbit it an opportunity for thit ladiet to hear one of the ablest ex ponents of tbe temperance cause in New Mexico. Be sure to bear ber.
