Yesterday's Dispatches Confirm Hager
man's Resignation and Curry's
NEW MEXICO WILL
The following dispatch received
Thursday evening will explain
Santa Fe, New Mexico,
April 18, 1907.
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.

Presbyterian Church will meet with

are always welcome.

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,
