Mew York County Committee
! : Will Learn Sentiment
ICANNON WORKERS THERE
After Hot Discussion Meeting Takes
i Another Month to Consider Res-
j olntlon Indorsing Hughes
J NEW TORK, Dec. 19. At a session
'which lasted less than ten minutes the
'Republican county committee of New
'York County tonight by an almost unanl
.mous vote refused to consider at this
.time a resolution endorsing Governor
(Charles B. Hughes for the Republican
Presidential nomination. No sooner had
the resolution been offered by the friends
of the Governor and Its adoption moved
than theje came an amendment to re
ceive and print the document and make it
a special order for the regular meeting
In January. This latter motion was car
ried with a shout that could be heard far
out into the street Immediately a motion
to adjourn was also carried.
Had Hot Discussion.
During the late afternoon the executive
committee had somewhat heatedly dls
tcuEsed the subject for three quarters of
'an hour and finally, on motion of Con
gressman Parsons, president of the
;county committee, It has been agreed, by
)& vote of 377 to 95 that consideration of
the Hughes resolution should be deferred
.for -one month.
! Before the meeting was called to order
'several members of the committee were
busy In the distribution of buttons pro
claiming Speaker Cannon as the next
Presidential nominee. ...
Sound Sentiment of Voters.
In discussions following the adjourn
ment of the committee meeting tonight,
many of the most ardent supporters of
Mr. Hughes declared that the action of
(the committee in deferring his endorse
'inent could not be construed as inimical
to Mr. Hughes' candidacy. On the con
trary, it was said that there was general
disposition on the part of the members to
ound the sentiment of the voters at
large before the committee committed
ntself. These men declared that the
resolution would be unanimously passed
at the January meeting.

tVhlskered Statesman Out for Gov
ernorViews on Presidency..
! NEW TORK, De-. 19. J. Hamilton
(Lewis, of Chicago, announced last
might that he would accept the nomi
nation for Governor of Illinois if It
were tendered him. He said:
"I am not seeking the office, but will
accept the nomination and make the
fight for Democratic supremacy If I
am given the platform of principles I
'This country has been running ram
pant on the mania that men can be
legislated Into honesty. To be honest
In places of trust should be taught as
a right to fellow men and duty to
keif. The criminal violating: the law
should be punished, but It is criminal
to confiscate the property of the Inno
cent to punish, one guilty. It Is bar
baric to wipe out a class or associa
tion to gratify resentment of some one
offender. We need no new laws, but a
sensible execution of the old ones. A
greater regard for the rights of peo
ple and less zeal to punish some Indi
vidual will be the platform of both
parties at the coming Presidential
nominations if they are wise. I think
Cannon of Illinois or Foraker of Ohio
will be the Republican candidate.
Hughes has no chance because of the
animosity of state leaders and the op
position of the country to allowing
New York again to dictate the Presi
dency. I have great respect for Gov
ernor Hughes. He has shown that a
good lawyer is always a good . execu
tive of laws. He has also given to a
certain styie of whiskers official status.
For the latter I am sensibly apprecia
tive. If conservatives In the Demo
cratic party prevail. Gray of Delaware
or Johnson of Minnesota will be the
candidate; If the Roosevelt Democrats
continue, Bryan and some Eastern or
Southern man, Hoke Smith of Georgia

tlNED UP T0BE KILLED
Survivor of Taqul Massacre Tells
NOGALES, Ariz., Dec. 19. Leonel Car
rlllo, member of a prominent Mexican
family of Tucson, one of the party
of 18 ambushed by Yaquls on the Do
lores River last Wednesday, when 12
of the number were killed, has arrived
Carrlllo was stood up naked with the
others by the Yaquls, but when the
fatal' volley was fired he was only
wounded, and succeeded In escaping.
Carrlllo and five others fled, without
clothing, across" the desert to a neigh
boring ranch. They reached theTe cov
ered with blood and exhausted from
their terrible experience. Carrlllo was
driving with Jose Fernandez, a wealthy
ranch owner and four "other Mexicans
from the town of Imurls, on the So
nora Railroad, to Fernandez'- ranch.
As they reached the Dolores River they
were suddenly confronted by a band
of 20 armed Yaqul IndlanB, dressed as
Mexican soldiers. The Indians had with
them 12 Mexican prisoners. At the
command of the Yaqul chief, ' Carrlllo
and his five companions were surround
ed, and at the muzzle of rifles compelled
to dismount from their wagon and
line up. They were then dragged along
side the 12 other Mexican prisoners.
After all had been compelled to undress
the entire 18 were stood in line In front,
of the leveled rifles of the Indians.
The chief then slowly counted up to
the number "sixteen," when the In
dians fired a volley, and all but six of
the party dropped dead. Carrlllo was
wounded, but not seriously. With five
others he fled.
The Indian uprising In the Magdalena
district Is the worst In five years, and
is causing the greatest uneasiness
among mining men, who fear a whole
sale massacre. Many American mining
men are making arrangements to leave
The two Yaqul Indians arrested by
Sheriff Saxon were armed with rifles
and carbines and have leen Identified
by a Mexican who escaped the massa
cre. The Mexican officers also have
a dozen Yaquls suspects In custody on
the other side of the line.

Edison Tell3 of Great Achievements
of Dead Scientist.
WEST ORANGE, N. J., Dec. 19.t
Thomas A. Edison, In an Interview,
expressed great regret at the death' of
Lord Kelvin, who had been his friend
for 35 years.
"Lord Kelvin certainly had the mas
ter mind In science, for the world
seldom sees such a man as he was,"
said Mr. Edison. "First of all, he was
great as a mathematician and then he
developed Into the greatest of scien
tists. I think It is safe to say that he
gave more attention to such subjects
as the power of the tides and the prop
erties of the crust of the earth than
any other scientist.'
"Kelvin may truly be said to have
been the life and soul of the Atlantic
cable, and they are still using the In
struments which he Invented so many
years ago. It Is a matter of history
that he was also Identified with prac
tically all the. other great cables which
have been laid."
. LONDON, Dec. 19. The royal Society,
of which Lord Kelvin was formerly
president, will petition the Dean of
Westminster Abbey for permission to
