And Tucumcari Times. Volume 4. No. 27 CURRY, GOV. SUCCEEDS gov. mm Yesterday's Dispatches Confirm Hager man's Resignation and Curry's NEW MEXICO WILL The following dispatch received Thursday evening will explain itself: Santa Fe, New Mexico, April 18, 1907. Newi, Tucumcari, New Mexico: New Mexican Special from Washington says: Governor Hagerman has resigned and Captain George Curry, Governor of Samar, Philippine Islands, will be his suc cessor Nkw Mexican. While the selection of Governor George Curry of Samar, Phillipine Islands to succeed Governor Hagerman, resigned, comes as a surprise to the News, there is not a citizen of the United States if a still hunt of a year were made that would please us better. We were under the impression that he is too useful in the Philippines to be given up by the government at this time. His career in the Phillip pine Islands has been a revelation to his friends and to his country. After establishing civil government in Mandanao, an admitted difficult task, he was sent to the Island of Samar where revolution was siz zling like a volcanic crater. Good report came immediately, and it is a matter of current event news today what he has accomplished there. It is more than anybody had a right to expect. New Mexico is proud of his record there, and here, before he went to the Philip pines, and there will be greater re joicing at his homecoming as Gov ernor of this Territory, we believe, than any other New Mexican who ever lived. New Mexico is home to Curry, he has our welfare at heart, and he has done as much as any other living man for herj civiliza tion and advancement. He is New Mexico's Curry and we are glad he is coming home. The Ladies Aid Society of the Presbyterian Church will meet with Mrs. Nichols, Wednesday after noon, April 24th, at 3:30.

HERN AND WILSON Territorial Police and Posse Still in Pursuit. News Expected Every Hour. thr.ee hundred dollars reward offered on each There is little to report in this 1 affair this week further than that ' Hern and Wilson are still at large and eluding the officers very suc cessfully. There has been only one battle since our last week's issue and in fact that was fought last Friday, but the sad result of the killing of Wilson's boy was not reported here until after the paper was out Saturday morning. Nobody knows, it seems, whether the boy was killed by the posse or by his own folks. The fight took place near the residence and some thing like 200 shots were fired and afterwards it was discovered that the boy was dead in the house with a bullet hole in his head. Wilson has told several people that he is wounded in the side and arm, but the hurts can't be serious, a3 he is able to ride and fight. A regu lar arsenal of arms and ammunition was found in the Hern residence. Five shot guns and a rifle were captured in the house and a horse, two overcoats and a pistol were taken from the desperadoes in this last fight. Rangers W.E. Dudley, Subscription $1.00 a year.
