Died
On the 21st inst. M. Seymour, age 73 years and 16 days. The cause of death was typhoid pneumonia and deficiency (unreadable) ...buried from his late residence at 10 am on the 22nd inst. Very impressive services were conducted by the Rev. R. E. Lund. The very large number of friends and neighbors present, testified to the universal esteem in which the deceased was held here. Mr. Seymour was Deacon of the Congregational Church and next to his bereaved wife and aged mother, the church feel his loss most keenly. Though he had lived here but three and a half years, no man was better known, and his sincere Christian spirit, and the manner in which be made his daily life to square with the spirit and teachings of the Master be served, had endeared and fortified him in the affections and respect of our people "After life's fitful fever he sleeps in peace." May all of us be as well prepared for great change as was our dear friend.

Railroad
Col Theo W. Herman came home from El Paso yesterday and we met him on his arrival and learn from him that there is little or no doubt that the El Paso Railroad. As the Col knows more about the inside workings of the Company than any one here, we are justified in saying that White Oaks will have the El Paso, White Oaks and Kansas City Railway during the year 1888. compiled by Michelle White

Good Stock
F. M. Goodin made us a pleasant call yesterday. He reports stock in good condition. Mr. Goodin imported quiet a number of Angora goats from Georgia, last year, and turned them into his herd of 1,000 native goats and expects in four years to have the flock graded up so they will shear a good clip of wool. This will certainly be a good speculation for Mr. Goodin.

Illness
S. W. Lloyd, the cattle man, is no better, his case is a sad one. He is violently insane, and needs constant and the most watchful care. Only the other day he set fire to all of his clothing and he house, which was saved by the efforts of Mrs. Lloyd and the men about the place. The attention of brother Masons is called to Lloyd's situation. We are reliably informed that he is a member in good standing for the last 35 years, having joined the Brooklyn, NY Lodge in 1855. The financial conditions of the family, renders it impossible for Mr. Lloyd to receive the treatment he is in need of, hence this suggestion to the Masonic Fraternity, who doubtless are not aware of the actual state of affairs.

Up to the honor of going to press we have not been authorized to mention any one as candidates for the office to be voted for on Monday text. The rumor of this one and that one for candidates cannot be reliably mentioned only in the case of T. B. McCourt, the present incumbent of the Justice of Peace office, who is a candidate for re election. Mr. McCourt this week was appointed Supt of schools, which appointment will not in any manner be an obstacle against his holding the office of Justice. There is small pay connected with either position, but with both makes sufficient to enable the office to pay him for time and expenses of performance of the duties of both positions. The ticket generally talked of, is T. B. McCourt for Justice of the Peace and J. P. Langston for Constable; A Ridgeway, Jones Taliaferro, and E. McTimoney for School directors.

The line would also connect with El Paso, Dallas, Fort Worth, Galveston and many other important Texas towns.

The manager of the Victoria Land and Cattle Company has generously offered the city all the cable necessary to build the bridge from a large supply which is on the Southern Pacific aiding at Separ. The cable was formerly used on the old Market street cable line in San Francisco, and was bought by the Victoria Company to be separated into strands and used for fencing wire. Later it was found to be ill adapted for this purpose and was never used. The bridge as planned will be 100 feet long and will be erected by individual subscription, Albuquerque Journal.

Late Crop Bulletin
The crop bulletin for New Mexico issued September 6th says:
"Hall, with a heavy rain storm at White Oaks, did considerable damage to
houses and destroyed gardens and fruits. As a whole the weather conditions
have been very favorable and crops and grass continue in excellent condition. Cool nights have been quite common and some northern and higher altitude stations barely escape frosts. "Grass on the ranges as a rule is fine and stock of all kinds is thrifty. A few localities, however, report dryness and short grass which is drying out rapidly and given poor promise for winter feed, especially in parts of Colfax, San Miguel, Lincoln, Chaves, Otero and Grant counties.
"Haying continues and the harvest of the third crop of alfalfa is beginning
in the northern counties, with a good yield. Dryness has caused some firing
of late cane, corn and beans in parts on Lin County, but generally the crops
are growing nicely. Corn is filling well and everywhere planted too late for
ears will make an abundance of fodder. "Considerable frit is reported in northern Valencia county. Fruits and vegetables have been much benefited by the frequent showers and are plentiful in the markets."

Hearing Reservoir Protests
A Roswell dispatch of September 8 says: The board of examiners to hear the protests filed by the Pecos Irrigation Company against the building of the Hondo government reservoir is in session in this city. The board consists of Assistant Chief Engineer A. P. Davis and Consulting Engineers B. M. Hall and W. H. Sanders of the Geological Survey. The Pecos Irrigation Company is protesting claiming prior rights to flood waters of the Hondo and the contest has excited interest over the entire West. The bids were opened last evening. The protest will not be decided until all the papers in the case are acted on at Washington. All of the bids will be examined here ad the commission will recommend to the department the decision. Which will practically make disposition of the case. It is thought that the protest of the Pecos Irrigation Company will be disregarded. The proposed cost of the reservoir is $240,000. It will be erected twelve miles from the city and will reclaim about 12,000 acres of land. The work will be let in six sections and several firms have put in bids for the entire work. The cause of the bid of Remer and Olson of Denver being $957 091.60 is a mistake in the figuring. They figured iron construction at $8 by mistake when the other contractors figured all the way through at 8 cents.

Golden Postmaster Shot
A Santa Fe dispatch of September 6th says: Postmaster Robert M. Carley of Golden was fatally shot last night by an unknown assassin who made good his escape. Three bullets from a Winchester rifle entered his body and he lived only about fifteen minutes. The coroner's jury is holding an inquest. The fact has been established that Postmaster Carley had had no words with anybody during the day or evening. A posse was formed soon after the shooting to run down the murderer but on account of the darkness nothing could be accomplished. The shooting undoubtedly was premeditated and it is probably that the enemy of Carley had been lying for wit for some time. The dead man was shot from behind on stepping from from the door of a frame building behind which, it is believed, the assassin was standing. This morning Sheriff H. C. Kinsel received a telegram from Cerrillos notifying him of the shooing and sent a deputy to the point to assist in running down the guilty party.

The suspects footed it across the plains and through the mountains from Magdelena to Hatch ad distance of over 100 miles, and purchased a ticket for Deming at Hatch, an obscure way station on the Deming Silver City branch. Special Officer O Leary followed the train to Rincon and there gave Conductor Griffith a description of the two suspects. When the men got on the train at Hatch the conductor telegraphed ahead to Sheriff Stevens and Deputy Johnson covered them first. For a moment it looked like a bloody shooting would take place but the alleged robbers submitted to arrest. A new pair of trousers belonging to the Magdalena station agent and several other articles found on their persons give the officers almost positive proof that Grimes and Bowers are the safe crackers and robbers.

Ancient New Mexico Records
The New Mexico Historical Society has made a valuable acquisition through the efforts of ex Governor I .B. Prince who recently returned from St. Louis, where he was one of the five judges in history at the Exposition. When W.W. Davis of Doyleton, Pennsylvania was acting governor of New Mexico 1883 to 1887. He had the ancient records of the executive office at Santa Fe copied and bound in book form making a volume of about 400 pages. These records related to the conquest of New Mexico by the Spanish by a young Mexican secretary who afterwards was killed by the Apache Indian. They formed the basis for General Davis fascinating work, "The Spanish Conquest of New Mexico" which has become a classic on the subject. The
records at Santa Fe, from which General Davis' volume was copied, have been
destroyed. Consequently his manuscript book is of priceless value as it is the only duplicate of the records in existence with the exception. There is a copy of the book deposited in the Smithsonian institution at Washington. Some years ago at the request of the director of the institution
General Davis gave his consent to have this copy made. A short time ago ex Governor Bradford Prince of Santa Fe president of the Historical Society of New Mexico wrote to General Davis asking him to deposit the old manuscript book in the archives of that society. The owner of the treasure concluded to present the volume to the New Mexico society. He had decided to deposit the book in the museum of the Bucks County Historical Society but as the work is in Spanish he reconsidered. Ex Governor Prince wrote General Davis another letter, suggesting that he sent the book to St Louis where it could be placed among New Mexico's exhibits at the Exposition. General Davis shipped the book to ex-Governor Prince last Thursday evening. After the close of the World's Fair it will be taken to Santa Fe and deposited among the most valued treasures in the museum of the Historical Society of New Mexico.

Bad Roads in New Mexico
The record breaking motor cycle cross country run from Denver to Albuquerque, made no records. Sergeant Capron and Private C. W. Bolen of Uncle Sam's army found New Mexico roads something too much for even their hardened constitutions to say nothing of the motor cycles and at last accounts they were hiking back toward Denver from Watrous riding on plush seats of a Santa Fe chair car, he motor cycles in the baggage car ahead. There was comparatively little difficulty until the men got across Raton pass and then the trouble commenced. An Albuquerque man who met the returning cyclists at Trinidad was told that in many places they had to make a detour of five files to get around a washed out wagon bridge and that at other times they had to carry the heavy machines for miles or drag them along. The machines they may stood the strain well but no machine they say could have stood the work through the washed out district south of Watrous. After looking over the situation from that point they wired to General Baldwin's adjutant to fix them out with transportation back to headquarters. It has been advanced that the time chosen for this run was not particularly propitious but even if this be true the use of motor cycles will be considerably discouraged in the army in the Colorado department, Albuquerque Journal.

A Roswell dispatch of October 20th says: With "Dad" Cowell, veteran engineer, at the throttle, judge W. H. Pope won his sensational race against time and convened court at 11:42. Court was convened and adjourned in two minutes and Roswell was thereby assured a term of court. If the midnight hour had struck before the train arrived, the term would have lapsed and there would not have been a regular term of court until Spring. This was not a grand stand play as it was necessary for the judge to be in Santa Fe on important supreme court business Monday and he was delayed at the washed out bridge at the Canadian. He stopped at Portales in the night and convened and adjourned court in two minutes and rushed on to this city. This was the first term of court that has been held in the new county of Roosevelt and it was adjourned until the second Monday in December Court was convened this morning at 9 o clock and there is a large docket. The grand jury went into session this afternoon.

Estancia Valley Gardens
One of the surprising features at the Territorial Fair at Albuquerque is the display of garden products from the Estancia valley in the new county of Torrance. Turnips weighing ten pounds on first year and during the dries season in the history of New Mexico is pretty good even for that favored section. Along some time last March while the wind was blowing a gale and the dust from the plains hid the Manzano mountains behind a cloud that seemed to foreshadow only evil for the pioneer settlers in that valley, a few of the women folks who knew and appreciated the value of a good garden began to talk about farming to their husbands but met with little encouragement. The ground was as dry as a bone and getting drier with no prospects of rain and the outlook for successful gardening was anything but promising, but with the faith that moves mountains they persisted until finally one at a time the "men folks" consented to do a little plowing and that was the beginning of the development of what now promises to be one of the garden spots of the someday to be Sunshine State.

The board of managers extends a general invitation to the citizens of New Mexico to attend New Mexico day as it was found impartial to send individual invitations to all such. Only distinguished citizens from without the territory will receive invitations.

Clarke's body was found today by boys who were hunting on the mesa. He had reached a point about seven miles from the city and the footprints in the sand around the spot where the body lay showed that, as is usually the case, he had been wandering around and around in the sand dunes in an effort to find his way back to town. The old man was missed from his home Saturday afternoon but as he had many friends among the Grand Army men in Albuquerque with whom he often visited, little was thought of the matter. The position of the body showed that the old soldier had composed himself for the end. He had remove his shoes and loosened his clothes and his head was pillowed n a little rise in the sand. He has a son and daughter, both in good circumstances. The funeral will be under the direction of the Grand Army. Clarke was a member of C company, second regiment of Kansas.

RUSSIA AND CLOUDCROFT
Migratory Lumber Town and Noted Pleasure and Health Resort. A correspondent of the Santa Fe New Mexican says: Otero county has a town almost six years old that has changed its site five times during the time of its existence. Its name has also changed that many times and at present it is known as Russia. It is called lumber camp, but it is more of a town than many that have been on the territorial map for years. The population of Russia is several hundred and its houses are perched on both sides of Russia canon for a distance of a mile. For natural scenery it cannot be surpassed and is one of the most picturesque little places in the county. Far into the Sacramento mountains, a large force of men are working stripping the virgin forests of their best timber and these men live at Russia. Here there are about a hundred little wooden houses several of them used as bunk houses for the unmarried men of the community; a commissary conducted by the New Mexico Tie and Timber Company, which has the contract for cutting all the timber, a railroad shop and round house for the four Steam engines used to hauling logs to the main line at the Russia station; a post office and school house. 

There are two cook houses and mess rooms, one for the loggers and the other for the railroad men. From the station to the town it is about two miles and descent of several hundred feet, which necessitates a switch track near the station. In Russia and Wayne Canons there are eight miles of track and a crew of laborers is now engaged in laying new steel, at the logging operations continue up the canon. At present the men are working three miles from town. Previous camps have been at Balley's Fresnal canon and James canon. in the course of a year the little town will be transferred again to some other canon. Many visitors from Cloudcroft drive over to see the logging operations which are interesting indeed to those who have never seen anything of the kind. 

The Sacramento Mountain region is a country of wonderful achievements in railroad engineering. The primary cause of these railroading feats was the tapping of the miles of timberland in these mountains. The Alamogordo and Sacramento railroad consists of twenty-six miles of track between Alamogordo and Cloudcroft, the most beautiful summer resort in this part of the United States, to reach which the road ascends almost a mile. The terminal of the line is at Russia six miles from Cloudcroft, where the timber is brought up from Russia canon for shipment to the mills of the Alamogordo Lumber Company.

New Mexico Cotton Crop
The Carlsbad correspondent off the Albuquerque Journal says: The warm dry weather of the past few weeks has caused the cotton crop of the valley to mature and the boils to open so rapidly that it has taxed the gin to its utmost capacity to handle the cotton as fast as it came in. The Ramsey company has been compelled to run from twelve to sixteen hours per day, in order to accommodate the growers and to permit them to gather and haul the crop.
The fields in the lower valley are swarming with pickers and if the favorable weather will continue for a week or two as long as the majority of the fields will produce two and some three more pickings.
A constant string of wagons, with extra high sideboards, piled with cotton< waiting for their turn, is a daily sight in the cotton yards at the gin. As many as twenty five wagons may be seen lines up at one time waiting to be unloaded.
On account of the strain of business caused by the cotton maturing so rapidly the management of the gin has found it necessary to enlarge their plant by erecting a seed house which is separate from the main building.
Mr. Ramsey predicts for next year a much larger acreage and also a much larger yield per acre. The experience of the past two years has been most valuable to the growers and by next season he says the cotton crop in the Pecos valley will be recognized as one of its stable products and will take its place beside the cattle and fruit industry. The cotton raised here this year is of an exceptionally good quality and ranks most favorably with any cotton raised in this country.

New Mexico Crop Bulletin
The bulletin of the Department of Agriculture for March says: General heavy rains occurred over the territory until the close of the second decade, and in the third some high winds and cold weather were experienced. The month was favorable for farming and stock raising interests and indications are that an early and successful session has begun. The abundant rains and snows of the winter have placed the soil in excellent condition for early plowing and seeding and work is progressing in all farming districts except the extreme north and a few of the higher altitudes. Small grain is being needed rapidly and early sown is coming up to good stand; fall sown grain also looks good. Alfalfa and range grasses are growing rapidly and already a little improvement is noted in the condition of stock although some losses are still reported, especially from northeast counties. An early and successful lambing season is expected. Peaches and apricots are blooming in south and central counties, little harm apparently resulting from frosts, and reports from the Pecos valley express the hope of abundant fruit.

A FORMER LINCOLN COUNTY MAN IN LUCK
Prospectors of the early 80s in the Gallinas mountains will remember "Billy" Niven who was one of their number and a braw young solid man he was 100. He had charge of the Lincoln County exhibit at the Torto? Millennial held at Santa Fe in 1883, and by sheer force of his personality and fine address could hold a crowd around that particular exhibit all day long when the spaces allotted to other counties, having a much larger and richer exhibit were comparatively deserted.
After leaving its county he went over into Arizona and for several years was arranging mineralogical cabinets for the use of the public schools in New York city, following this up with lectures on this same line having formerly studied the subject while attending the University at Edindurgh, Scotland. Several years ago he was sent to Old Mexico by some archaeological society of the east to hunt up pre historic curios and the like. By systematic digging among some of the old ruins in that ancient country he was enabled to bring to light many valuable and unique specimens of the implements used by a Incas which apparently antedated the Aztec. One of the ruined cities he discovered, extended over twenty six miles. He also discovered several varieties of precious stones new to geology, one of which has been named after himself, Nivinite. From a late Chicago paper it is learned that he has just lately discovered what is claimed to be the placer fields from which the Montezuma's obtained their gold. The fields were being worked by a tribe of Indians, and he has been working on the Indians for two years or more to get concession from them and has finally succeeded. These gold fields were situated in what is known as Rio del Oro, in the state of Guerro, and are of fabulous richness. His old time friends will be glad to learn of his good fortune.

A Washington special to the Denver Republican says: Ex Delegate Rodey of New Mexico is to be given a place in the government service if a suitable position can be found for him. His name was considered by President Roosevelt and Attorney General Moody in connection with a Philippine judgeship where Rodey's knowledge of French and Spanish would have made him a valuable official. There was so much pressure for this place, however that it was not practicable to give it to Rodey but it is thought that a desirable place will ultimately be found for him.

Story of Abel Suicide
An Albuquerque dispatch says: It has developed that David J. Able, the wealthy Albuquerque liquor merchant, had long planned to commit suicide in Denver, and he successfully carried out his plan last Sunday morning by cutting his throat at the St. James hotel in that city. Several citizens who conversed with Mr. Abel in the last few months say that he had expressed a desire to die and that his body be cremated. His will, which was opened yesterday, bears out these statements, one clause giving express instructions that after death his body be cremated and his ashes deposited in an urn and placed in the Elk's Lodge room of this city. The closest crematory to this city is at Denver and to that city he went so his friends declare, to be nearer to the crematory, as it would be cheaper to send the ashes back here than to ship the body from this city to the cremator. The razor with which Able cut his throat was purchased in this city about a year ago.
He never did his own shaving but carried the razor with him at all times and it is believed that his preparations for suicide were not finally complete until he reached Denver, so that his will could be obeyed in regard to the cremation of his body. Employees at his store here say that Mr. Able was especially attentive to business for a week before he left for Denver and an inspection shows that his business affairs are closed up nicely. It is understood that he left his fortune to a favorite nephew in Chicago and to his brother, Albert Abel of Denver. An Albuquerque dispatch of March 13th says: David J Abel, who committed suicide at the St James hotel in Denver yesterday morning was a well known and wealthy wholesale liquor merchant of the city.

He came her from Denver in 1882 and up to five years ago conducted an extensive cigar and tobacco business. He made a fortune, investing in real estate selling out the cigar business, he purchased a half interest in a wholesale liquor business with Ernest Meyers and this was followed a few years later by his purchase of the interest of Meyers. Mr. Meyers and the deceased were interested in the Pecos Valley Cigar and Liquor Company at Roswell. Only a few weeks ago Mr. Able sold a piece of property in this city for $12,500 cash. He was worth about $75.000. His will was opened this afternoon and a nephew named Abel, in Chicago and the Montezuma Loan and Trust Company of this city, are named as administrators with out bond. The will also requires that the remains be cremated and the ashes deposited in an urn and placed in the Elks' lodge room in this city.

Charged with Mail Offenses
An Albuquerque dispatch of April 3rd says L. R. Knowles is in jail here with having waived a preliminary examination, will appear before the grand jury to answer the serious charge of violating the United States postal laws by sending prohibited matter through the mails. The arrest was made by Deputy Marshal Cooper upon the complaint of Post office inspector A. P. Smithers. Knowles is well known here and for a while was employed in the Santa Fe shops as machinist, going out with the disaffected men when the strike was declared. Later he was one of the men tried and convicted of interfering with non-union men, from which the strikers had been enjoined by the District Court. The letters in question are said to have been written to strike breakers and were of an abusive nature. Knowles was interested in the management of Labor Advocate, the local labor union organ, at one time. The grand jury does not meet for some time. Meanwhile Knowles will be compelled to remain in jail in default of bail which he has not obtained.

THOUSAND-MILE RIDE LONG trIP,
WITH HEALTH AND PLEASURE THE OBJECTS.
Correspondent writes of journey in Texas and Mexico with a party as guests of the Southern Pacific Railroad Gilson Willett special correspondent of Leslie's Weekly, writes entertainingly of a thousand mile horseback hunt in Texas and Mexico with a party as guests of the Southern Pacific railroad. The members of the party represented twelve different states. At Sabinas Mexico he says: "over half of the thousand mile journey has been completed and the fellows who are here for their health are now hard as nails; those who came along with an appetite for pleasure are well nigh satiated; and the sportsmen have brought in day after day, incredibly huge bags of ducks, geese, rabbits, squirrels, and no end of small game, not to mention big hauls of deer, bear, wild turkeys and fish. All of which is due to about the most healthful region in the Union; to a section of country where pleasurable diversion is eternally at hand, and to a territory that is literally a sportsman's paradise hitherto un-trod and un-shot and un-fished."

Mr. Willett bestows a deserved eulogy on the splendid hospitality of the Southern Pacific and the hearty welcome accorded the party in southern cities from New Orleans onward. Visitors to southwest Texas will not need to be told of the really marvelous work done by the Southern Pacific in building up that section of the country, Mr. Willett says: "Then we again boarded our train and railroaded on for the most of a day, through a country in which the Southern Pacific has causes a blade of grass not to speak of stalk of corn, cane or sugar and blossom of cotton to flourish where none grew before."

"Thirty miles farther inland on the San Diego river, we made our first camp in Mexico. After that our camps were from twenty to fifty miles apart. And thus we have progressed on our thousand mile horseback hunt, passing through strange villages and seeing queer peon customs, visiting the million acres where the owners escorted us to the front door with six hundred white horses, or six hundred black horses or six hundred bays as the case might be and having all sorts of diversions of big hunts, and witnessing many kinds of unique sights in primitive and quaint old Mexico."

"Our first three or four camps were made on one of the largest ranches in the world, the Trevino ranch of 1,000,000 acres. Of this great ranch as big as a New England state as on all the other great ranches we have traversed, the Southern Pacific management obtained all hunting and fishing privileges."

"It was on the great Trevino ranch that the health seekers of the party first discovered that they were getting in Mexico exactly what they had come for a new constitution. The sportsmen of the party too were out late and up early on "the chase that pleases." The motto always was to kill only such game, however plentiful it might be, as was actually needed for consumption at our table for the Southern Pacific stands for the killing of game for food only." Many interesting stories of the district traversed are related by Mr. Willett. He concludes: Thus on this trip every promise made by the Southern Pacific railroad has been kept to the letter just as similar promises will be kept on the second annual thousand mile horseback hunting party already taken of for next year."

DEPUTY SHERIFF KILLED
A Roswell dispatch of April 7th says: Jap L Clark and W. A. McKean, two cowboys, shot and killed James M. Chase deputy sheriff of Lincoln County, Tuesday evening at Torrace and attempted to kill J. C. Gilbert. Chase and Gilbert were witnesses against Clark and McKean in cases pending in the Lincoln County District Court, which were set for trial next week. The charge against Clark is assault with intent to kill. McKean is charged with impersonating an officer and assault with deadly weapons. Clarke opened fire on Chase first and followed him for 200 yards after both men had emptied their pistols. Clarke and McKean ran to a saloon, secured rifles and resumed shooting at Chase. He fell mortally wounded and died in a few hours. The shots that killed him were from 45 calibre and 30 calibre rifles. The two men escaped from Torrance in a buggy but were shot at five times by J.C. Gilbert. It was reported here this afternoon that the men were in Roswell and a search was made for them. Several reputable citizens declared that they saw Clarke here this morning. He was also seen by inmate of a bawdy house. Clarke is one of the best known cowboys in New Mexico and has figured in many shooting scrapes. At the last term of the District Court Clarke was convicted of horse stealing and sentenced to one year in the penitentiary and fined $500. The case was appealed to the Supreme Court and Clarke was released on $3,000 bond. The Supreme court recently overruled the motion for a new trial and Clarke is now a fugitive from justice on this charge also. A special from Santa Fe April 7th says: Jap Clarke, one of the alleged murderers of Deputy Sheriff Chase of Torrance County this week was arrested today at Capitan. Dr. Laws of Coalers dressed the wounded leg of Clarke, who was wounded by Chase.

Assault
A Folsom dispatch of May 7th says: Excitement is running high this evening on account of a brutal assault made by Juan Tucero at 10:30 o'clock this morning upon the person of the nine year old daughter of Henry Southern, foreman of the bridge work on the Colorado and Southern Railway. The little girl and her two smaller brothers were hunting flowers along the track about a quarter mile from the town, the Tucero seized the little girl and carried her into the rocks close by and brutally assaulted her. She fought the inhuman wretch striking him squarely in the face with a stone and leaving a wound that was sufficient to identify him by. The little boys ran to town as fast as they could and gave the alarm and officers and posses of men started out on the hunt for the man and soon ran him down. He was arrested and brought into town. Excitement soon began to run so high that the officers began to fear for the safety of their prisoner and hurried him out of town, where they have him in safe keeping. Southern was out with his men and came in as soon as he could, but did not get in until about 4:45 o clock this evening. Southern immediately armed himself and started out in the hunt for the officers and prisoner, and if he finds them there will be trouble. At this time Southern is still on the hunt for them.

Summer Normal School If the work of the summer session of the Normal University at Las Vegas is carried out in accordance with the bulletin that has just appeared announcing the program of studies teachers and students generally will find the summer school interesting and profitable. This enterprising institution is taking hold of the educational situation in New Mexico in a manner that is sure to bring success. The faculty of the summer session will consist of six members from the faculty of the regular session and it is their purpose to meet the needs of the greatest possible number of teachers and others. The session will begin June 19th and continue eight weeks, closing August 11th. Tuition will be entirely free.

Chases will be formed in all branches required for any grade of teacher's certificate. Special advantages are offered those desiring certain lines of work. For example those who wish to take out a first grade certificate will have an opportunity to take algebra, botany, zoology and advanced pedagogy. According to President Vert's view of the mater, even eight weeks constitute too short a period in which to make perceptible progress in these branches with only one recitation a day. Accordingly, those pursuing these branches will have an opportunity to take two recitations a day in any two of these studies, thus being able to do sixteen weeks work in eight weeks. This feature of the summer work of the Normal will commend itself to a large number of prospective teachers who recognize the fact that the county institute, which is in session only two weeks, affords practically no opportunity to prepare for this grade of certificate. At best nine or ten recitations in such branches must be considered from the viewpoint of thorough education as chiefly a farce. No less important is another feature of the work of the summer session, namely, the wide range of subjects in the theory of the art of teaching.

There will be three classes a day in pedagogy in which the aim will be to lead the student to a general knowledge of the problems involved in teaching and managing a school in addition to these however there will be an observation class and several classes in method of teaching the common branches. The observation class will consist of primary children under the instruction of one of the model teachers of the training school. The students enrolled in the summer session will have an opportunity to observe this work and at the close of each day's session what was observed will be carefully reviewed and discussed by the teacher in charge thus making the instruction concrete and directly helpful. The advantages offered those expecting to teach in rural and small town schools are quiet as great as those open to others. Several classes will be organized in each of the common branches and the method of instruction and the character of the work covered will be adapted to the needs of the teachers of these schools. The bulletin is very explicit in every particular and makes it clear That Normal University is sparing no effort to cover the whole field of preparation of teachers for the public schools, including the city, town and rural district--Santa Fe New Mexican.

Investigation of the Packers
Very general interest has been manifested in the government investigation now in progress into the mode of conducting business by the large packers located in Chicago and elsewhere. Much has been written upon the alleged illegal and improper modes of business procedure connected with the packing industry; but it seems that so far no definite charge of any kind has been sustained and no proof of illegal or inequitable methods has been disclosed to the public. While a wave of severe criticism of this great industrial interest is now passing over the country it might be well to remember that the packers have had as yet no opportunity to make specific denial, the many indefinite charges of wrong doing having never been formulated so that a categorical answer could be made.

The recent report of Commissioner Garfield which embodied the results of an official investigation undertaken by the Department of Commerce and Labor of the United States was a vindication of the Western packers, but this result having been unexpected attempts in many quarters to discredit it were made. In view of the situation as it now stands however, attention may properly be called to a few facts that owing to popular clamor are now being apparently overlooked. Fair treatment in this country has heretofore been accorded to all citizens whose affairs assume prominence in the public eye and some of the facts that bear upon the relation of the packers to the commerce of the country may at this time be briefly alluded to. It would be difficult to estimate the benefits gained by the farmers of the country resulting from the energetic enterprise of the packers, for whatever is of benefit to the farmer is a gain to the entire commerce of the country. And connected with their continuous aggressive work no feature perhaps has been more important than their efforts in seeking outlets all over the world for the surplus products of the farmer.

Our total exports of agricultural products have gained but little in the past twenty years and leaving out corn, the total of all other farm products was far less in 1903 than in 1891. But in packing house products there was considerable gain during this period because an organized and powerful force has been behind them seeking new and broader markets. Besides the benefits reaped by farmers on account of the enterprise and energy exercised by he packers in attaining commercial results by foreign trade, the great development in the manufacture of packing house by products has added enormously to the value of all live stock raised in the united States. The waste material of twenty years ago, then an expense to the packer, is now converted into articles of great value, and as an economic fact, this must correspondingly increase the value to the farmer of every head of cattle marketed at the numerous stock yards of the country. Let these facts be remembered while now it is so popular to regard the great packing industry as deserving of condemnation.

At least it must be admitted that so far there is no adequate reason for the almost unanimous howl that may be heard everywhere in the face of the Garfield report above alluded to which practically exonerates the packers from the obscure and indefinite charges that have been for some time past made the subject of popular comment--American Homestead.

He has already furnished them as much seed corn as they wanted for their plots of land in the Santa Fe canyon--Santa Fe New Mexican.

VICTIMS OF TORNADO
Losses at Snyder, Oklahoma Death list will reach One Hundred--Streets Strewn with Corpses--Not One Building Escaped Damage Guthrie, O.T. may 12--The latest official reports from the tornado stricken town of Snyder, Oklahoma, place the list of death at ninety five. Others figures advance this figure to 100. It is highly probably that the death list, when accurately tabulated will reach 132 although most conservative estimates place it at 100. A commercial traveler who reached Hobart from Snyder said the streets were strewn with corpses after the tornado passed. Of those injured there are various reports reaching from 109 to 150. It is utterly impossible to arrive at any definite idea of the property loss. Considering the fact that not a single building in the town of Snyder was left undamaged and the additional fact of the great damage to live stock fruit and crops it is very probable that the total harm done by the storm will reach a high figure.

The storm formed near the Texas line and its pate extends in a northeasterly direction for over forty miles causing damage at Altus, Olustee and other small towns and in the country as well as at Snyder. Reports indicate that the causalities outside of Snyder will aggregate over twenty five and may go higher. At Snyder the lack of mans to bury the dead is causing serious incontinence. There is plenty of medical attention however financial aid being needed most. A dispatch from Snyder last night says: The havoc wrought by the tornado is complete. Out of a town of 1,000 people not more than a score of houses are intact, while two thirds of the buildings are totally wrecked. The storm formed south of Olustee, near the Texas line and took a north easterly course through a well settled section. At 8 o'clock it was observed by the people of Snyder, but the usual funnel shaped formation was lacking and though the roar was plainly heard for some time before the storm broke, many were of the opinion that it was a hailstorm. Within a few minutes the sky became suddenly dark and a terrific downpour of rain began, lasting for several minutes when it stopped almost as suddenly as it had commenced.

A few minutes of ominous calm followed and then the tornado struck, tearing the buildings to pieces as thought they were made of paper. Many people who had thought to take advantage of the calm to seek refuge in cellars were caught in the streets and between buildings where some were lifted high in the air and dashed to the ground as though hurled from a catapult, while others were struck by falling debris and beaten almost beyond recognition. Those who remained in their houses fared better in the path of the tornado which swept across all excepting a few blocks in the southwestern corner of the town. The frame structures collapsed like eggshells burying occupants under the debris killing crushing and maiming. Six of the eight hotels were torn to pieces burying many in the wreckage. north of the railroad track where many cottages stood, not one is left and the wreckage is mostly carried away. In a few moments it was all over and the air was filled with shrieks of injured mingled with cries of those who had escaped and were seeking lost ones.

Ruminating Reminiscent
One by one the old land marks are disappearing. This week S.J. Wallace is tearing down the building opposite he Outlook office. This architectural wreck at one time known as the Burke hotel was a very popular hostelry and well patronized in the early days. After it ceased to be an Epicurean resort it became a sort of literary hash house it being utilized by the old Lincoln county Leader as an office and press room. It kept on this toboggan incline until its four walls harbored a dram shop of the baser short and then took a rest for several years. Afterwards being well aired fumigated and renovated it took an upward tendency and again became a respectful dispensatory of toothsome viands. It was also used by the firm of Bond and Stewart as a grocery store and at one time Dr J.T. Reid disposed pills, poison and special there from and was followed a year or two later by Murphy who was engaged in the same business. Finally it was used by N.B. Taylor and Sons as a blacksmith shop and since they moved into their present quarters it has stood lose and deserted a dilapidated monument of former greatness, a harbor for bats of human, as well as the other questionable species and a target for rocks and "nigger shooters" in the hands of hoodlums about town.

DEPARTMENT ENCAMPMENT
Annual Meeting of Colorado and Wyoming Veterans in Denver Denver. May 18--With the reception at the depot of General Wimon W. Blackmar, national commander in chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, opened its annual encampment yesterday morning. General Blackmar was accompanied by his adjutant general, John E. Gillman of Boston; Mrs. Gilman, Mrs. Blackmar and the latter's sister, Miss Jennie Brewer. More than 300 veterans, with Col Charles Wallace and his drum corps were waiting at the depot at 10:30 o' clock yesterday morning to greet General Blackmar and party. The visitors were delighted with their reception and General Blackmar was particularly pleased at the announcement of Col Harper M. Ora hoot that former Mayor Wright's fine gray horse had been tendered to the general for his use during the national encampment in this city next September.

It is the striking resemblance between General Blackmar and the former mayor that has caused such a friendship to spring up between them. Following a brief reception at the hotel the several woman's auxiliary bodies opened their business sessions at the places selected for their meetings after which they adjourned to attend the open meeting of the G.A.R. encampment in Unity church. At 2:30 in the afternoon, the department of Colorado and Wyoming formally opened its encampment in Unity church, addresses of welcome being made by Governor McDonald for the state and Harry E. Insley, representing Mayor Speer, who welcomed the visitors to Denver. Department Commander T.J. Downen of Pueblo presided. Stirring addresses were given by General Blackmar and General Gilman and then Commander Downen read his annual address, which is regarded as one of the ablest ever made by any commander since the department was organized. Last evening there was a reception to General Blackmar and party at the Albany hotel. This morning the department will begin its business session at 9 o clock at Unity church.

Statement by Mrs. Chadwick Cleveland, Ohio May 19, Mrs. Cassie L. Chadwick made a statement last night concerning her affairs in which she said: "Since January 1 1901 I have had $3,210, 000. Of this amount I borrowed not over $900,000 the remainder coming from a trust fund and some sales. "In April or May, 1901 I owed only $53,000. I paid that debt. I was then induced to make an investment which called for almost $400,000. I took no security for this investment and the transaction so far as I was concerned; never materialized. The investment was made upon the advice of a friend. In February 1902 after my return from Europe I was informed that my investment was a loss and that I was in debt $400,000. Besides that sum there was an additional loss which I had incurred of $200,000. In order to meet these obligations I made large loads for which I paid heave commissions. "I have borrowed in all $900,000. I obtained $175,000 on my own note. A loan of $240,000 was secured by men on the endorsement of a prominent New Yorker. The other $400,000 I have mentioned before."

Lambing shows a large percent of the increase and shearing is about finished in the central counties. The calf crop is light thus far but cattlemen expect a good increase later. The first cutting of alfalfa is well along in southern counties and is beginning in the central counties with a large crop. Frost has tinned fruit somewhat in the northern counties, especially in Union and San Juan counties. Strawberries are being marketed in the lower Pecos Valley.

New Automobile Line
Dr. Tomas M. Michaelo of Torrance spent Thursday in Santa Fe on business. he has been a resident of Torrance for three years and is thoroughly acquainted with the surrounding country. The town already shows improvements on account of the expected building of the Eastern railway of New Mexico which will cross the El Paso and Northeastern road at that point and also connect there with the Santa Fe Central. "One of the greatest things from my section," said the doctor, "has been the establishment of the automobile line between Torrance and Roswell. Vehicles have commenced to run regularly and are now making the trip daily, going and coming is about eight hours. "It is expected that with improvements of the road between the two towns the time will be cut down to six or seven hours. The fare is $10 which considering that the distance is 101 1/2 miles between the two points is very low. The automobiles now making the trip have been patronized to the fullest capacity and it is believed that the business will increase so as to necessitate an increase in the number of vehicles.

This will be done just as soon s the company owning the automobiles finds it can do so profitably and this will be within a few weeks. The road is straight across a level range of country and is being improved constantly, although it is a very good natural road already. "There are at present no stopping places on the line, although there are cattle and sheep ranches to the right and left of it. The company expects to put in several stopping places where meals will be served and passengers taken car of as well as for use in case of emergency. Heretofore if passengers from Roswell wanted to go to say towns in the central part of the territory on the Santa Fe railway system they either had to go from Roswell to Pecos City on the Pecos Valley a Northeastern railroad, a distance of about 180 miles from Pecos City to El Paso on the Texas Pacific railroad a distance of 276 miles and from El Paso to whatever towns in the territory they wanted to reach a distance of several hundred miles or they could make the northern trip by going to Trinidad via the Santa Fe from Trinidad to Amarilla via the Colorado & Southern railroad and from Amarilla to Roswell via the Pecos Valley & Northeastern.

This with stoppage etc took up a space of time of about two days and two nights provided there were no delays or interruptions in train services. Via the automobile line passengers say from Santa Fe will leave here at noon reach Torrance the same evening, remain there over night and get to Roswell the section afternoon about 4 o'clock saving money travel time and expense. It looks as if the automobile line will develop much business and in the near future will carry mail and express from the central parts of New Mexico to Roswell and other points in the Pecos valley."

How the Bugs Cinch Us
It has been noticeable at Santa Fe and in other parts of New Mexico that with each year the number of insect pests increased. It was but a few years ago that San Juan county sent out a train of apples with the legend: "A million apples without a single worm" but today it is difficult to get a shipment of a few barrels of apples from any part of the territory without finding some wormy ones among them. This is in part due to carelessness. The grasshoppers, the army worm and other insects too have invaded this the propagation of weeds, which is practically unchecked and it will be seen that the farmer of the future will have a more difficult task to raise crops than did his predecessor in the bugless and weedless age of New Mexico.
compiled by Michelle White

The Department of Agriculture recognizes the danger to agriculture from the ravages of insects and is doing considerable towards helping farmers to keep the pests in check, but it is up to the farmer to take advantage of these experiments in his behalf. He must be energetic in spraying and in doing the other things that the department recommends for the extermination of bugs, especially in years that have been wet and as favorable to insect and weed propagation as this year. But few people realize that bugs and weeds do more to damage to crops each year than could be paid for by a sum equivalent to the entire sum it costs to run this government--Santa Fe New Mexican.

The first cutting of alfalfa is well along in northern counties and the higher districts and the second is being begun in the southern counties. Forest trees, weeds and underbrush are making an unusual growth. The fruit crop is very promising. Apricots are ripe in southern counties and cherries and currants in northern.

The Army Worm Pest
Infects Country from Albuquerque to Socorro The Santa Fe New Mexican of June 24th says: Hon Solomon Luna who arrived at noon today from the south on official business in connection with his duties as president of the Territorial Sheep Sanitary Board informed a representative of the New Mexican that the country in the Rio Grande valley from Albuquerque as far south as Socorro is being visited by great armies of army worms. These worms are covering everything that is green and eating everything cultivated in sight. The second cutting of alfalfa he fears will be a failure. He also things that the fruit and grape crops will be destroyed before the worms leave that section of the country. They seem to be< especially fond of wheat fields and the ground is fairly gray with them. In addition it has been very dry during the past several weeks and the heat seems to stimulate the worms to greater activity and to make them more voracious. The farmers in the section, who suffered greatly from drought last year and from washouts last fall and this spring, are now suffering from the ravages of these pests and are really in a very bad condition.
compiled by Michelle White

The outlook is not at all favorable. This is the first time that Mr. Luna has ever seen an army worm or heard of their precinct in any section of New Mexico. North of Albuquerque especially around Bernalillo the same untoward conditions are reported. From the Mesilla valley comes word that in addition to flood damage this spring the fruit crop will be much smaller than had been anticipated. It is reported from various sections of the Rio Grande valley north of Albuquerque, especially from the fine agricultural section surrounding the town of Bernalillo the county seat of Sandoval County that the great hosts of army worms have appeared there and are devastating the crops and eating everything green that they can get hold of. It is feared that the second crop of alfalfa on account of their presence and ravages will be a failure and that the harvest of cereals vegetables and fruit will be very small unless the pests can be destroyed or driven away. A similar report comes from the agricultural sections in Sandoval county west of the Rio Grand and west of Bernalillo. The College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts should send one or two experts to investigate this worm plague and recommend measures by which it can be destroyed.

McFle of the First Judicial District Court has filed his decision with the clerk of the District Court, in the Martin relief law case, which was passed by the Thirty-sixth Legislature February 4 1905. Judge McFle decided that the law is unconstitutional because it is n violation of the third section of the act of Congress known as the Springer act, which was approved July 30 1886. Also that the tax levy authorized by the Martin relief act on all taxable property of the territory to purchase seed, grain and supplies for farmers temporarily embarrassed in thirteen counties only is unauthorized and void the same being for private and not for public purposes.

Adjudged Insane
Judge John R McFle of Santa Fe sitting at Albuquerque in place of Judge Ira A. Abbot who is in the East held an examination to determine the sanity of George Peres, son of Rev Jesus Y Peres of Pajarito who was arrested a week ago for burglarizing the dry goods store of L. Kempenich in that city. A large number of witnesses were examined an it was shown that the boy is insane and has been since birth. Insanity is hereditary in the family, several brothers and others near relatives now being condemned in asylums. Judge McFle ordered him committed to the territorial asylum at Las Vegas at once, as it was shown that he has a mania for carrying concealed weapons and has frightened several people by drawing revolvers on them.

Tallmadge Cases Dropped
At Portales July 20th case Nos 4 and 5 charging perjury against B. H. Tallmadge and cases Nos 6 and 7 charging subornation of perjury were dismissed by the United States and this cleared the defendant of all charges against him in connection with alleged fraudulent land entries. In the alleged perjury cases the dismissals ere on the ground that the facts alleged by the government to have been falsely sworn to by the defendant were not required by law to have been sworn to at all not being material matters required by the statutes or the regulations of the land office. The commissioner held that in subornation cases the rule of practice required that prosecutions of persons suborned or their conviction must be shown they being principals and the suborder an accessory, the rule of common law practice being applicable in United States cases unless otherwise modified by statute. A mass meeting of the citizens was held in the court house and every business house in the town closed. This unusual procedure was in the nature of a general rejoicing over the acquittal. Resolutions were adopted inviting the Tallmadges to bring home seekers to Roosevelt County. The defendant left the same day for Chicago

Big Fire at Socorro
An Albuquerque dispatch of July 18 says: A special dispatch received in the city late this afternoon from Socorro, county seat of Socorro county, gives the news of a disastrous conflagration in that city today. Fire broke out at 12:30pm in the livery stable and a brisk wind spread the flames to the adjoining Windsor hotel, a two story brick structure erected some years ago at a cost of $16,000 and the only hotel in town. The hotel and barns were entirely consumed. The loss is partially covered by fire Insurance. The hotel was owned by C. T. Brown a prominent mining man and managed by P. Y. Yonkers. It was impossible for the firemen to save the building as there was no water in the mains.

Arrested for Burglary
A Raton special to the Denver News July 20th says: John C. Walters, secretary of the international Machinists Union at this place was bound over today from his preliminary hearing charged with burglarizing the home of Walter Fairbanks. Walters gained an entrance by breaking through a screen window and after ransacking the house for some time was discovered. He had no means of escape without being seen and identified, so crawled under a bed in an attempt to conceal himself until an opportunity of escape should present itself. His hiding place was discovered and he was covered with a weapon and searched. Upon his person were a few things of small value belonging to the family. He was immediately committed to jail, where he remained until his preliminary haring after which a $1, 000 cash bond was given for his appearance next term of District Court. Walters has a wife and one child and heretofore has been considered among Raton's best citizens. He is also a fine machinist and was employed at the Santa Fe shops at this place but went out with the strikers on May 2 1904 and since that time has done little toward supporting his family. Another arrest is looked for at any time in connection with the case.

Sheep Must be Dipped

An Albuquerque dispatch of July 24th says: The Territorial Sheep Sanitary Board held a meeting in this city today and adopted plans for the commencement of a vigorous campaign for the extermination of scabies among the sheep in New Mexico. Twenty government inspectors will be appointed at once and assigned to duty in affected portions of the territory, where they will see that the law passed by the recent Legislature requiring that all sheep be dipped is rigidly enforced. The disease is not general over the territory and is only of a mold form where found, therefore the board homes to succeed in thoroughly stamping it out. Reports made to the board by secretary showed that condition among sheep men were never better and that with a mild winter this year heavy losses by drought last year will be more than overcome.

Large Cattle Shipments

Cattle shipments from the territory during the past few months have been enormous and if the depletion for the cattle ranges continues at the a same ratio as it has during the past two years the cattle raising will no longer be the largest tax paying interest in the territory. The shipments from Deming alone during May and June amounted to 43, 731 head, the value of which was at least $1,000,000. Last year the shipments from the territory amounted to 177,000 head, the year before to 185,000 head and the year before to 134,000 head, but this year they will be almost twice that number. Considering that the percentage of the calf crop was lower than usual and hardly made up the losses during the winter, the shipments represent a loss in assessed valuation for almost $5,000 000.
Yet New Mexico should be a cattle country per excellence despite the encroachment that sheep and goats have made upon the public range. Provisions for feeding during hard storms in the winter and some sort of a lease arrangement for the public lands, such as are offered by the territorial land commission, will do much towards restoring New Mexico to its proper place as one of the leading cattle raising sections of the Union. In the meanwhile the loss to the assessment rolls caused by the decline of the cattle industry should be made up by a more complete and strict assessment of sheep and goats, Santa Fe New Mexico.

Last Saturday afternoon as Ira O.

The Justice of the Peace at Nogal was notified at once and bad the body removed to the ranch of Jose Vega and held an inquest resulting in a verdict of death from heart failure, there being no marks on the body to indicate injury by accident or violence. The fact of the rope being taken down from the saddle is an indication that he got off of his horse and sat down by the road side and died of a heart failure. The deceased was a respected citizen, and one of the oldest inhabitants of the country, being past 70 years of age. The body was taken to Capitan for interment after the inquest by his sons who were notified as son as the death was known.

Almost in the town a mine containing native copper, hematite of iron and free milling gold has been discovered, and the fend can be traced on the surface for two miles. From the put down some of the pretties samples of ore ever seen in this section have been taken out. At the bottom of the shaft J.C. Dunn took a quantity of dirt and had J.H. Whittlesey an old time miner wash it and Mr. Whittlesey found wire gold and magnetic iron. Mr. Coakley states that in all his mining experience in the San Andres where it is claimed there are all kinds of oar and good prospects he has not seen anything to equal this discovery. Capt. Thos T. Leak a reliable expert miner, who has worked in the San Andreas mines for many years says he has never seen anything to equal this prospect.
Hon. Nestor A Young of Los Angeles, California took up an adjoining claim. Mr. Young is an old timer in the California mining districts and is well pleased with what he has seen of this mine. Mr. Young may be back soon to help finance a company. M.P. Coakley, County Treasurer J.C. Dunn and Walter Irish of Des Moines Iowa are the locaters and Probate Clerk H.H.

The samples on exhibition in the office of County Treasurer J.C. Dunn and as fine specimen of ore ever looked at and indicate a rich body of copper and other minerals in that vicinity. Capt Leak, Nester A Young and M.P. Coakley are reliable mining men and from their experience in mining fields leads them to be reasonably sure of a rich body of ore in this mine.

OIL CAN EXPLODES
BURNS WOMAN AND CHILD TO DEATH
IN THEIR HOME AT PARSONS

LAST MONDAY MORNING, FRANTIC HUSBAND
AND FRIENDS POWERLESS TO ASSIST
Last Monday morning at about 8:30 o clock the mining camp of Parsons in this county was the scene of one of the most terrible accidents which has ever occurred in this region. Mrs. William Protheroo and her child three years old were burned to death in their home, which was destroyed with all of its contents by the explosion of an oil can. From all reports it seems that Mrs. Protheroe must have been starting a fire in the cook stove with oil being a five gallon can for the purpose when the oil ignited probably from some fire which remained in the stove and exploded with terrific force. Mrs. Long and her daughter hear the explosion and seeing the house in flames tried to get to Mrs. Protheroe and help her finding this impossible, they at once called the men from the mill, but they were powerless to do anything as the house was a mass of flame when they reached it. A letter from parsons states that the stove was blown completely to pieces and the remains of the oil can also gave evidence of the terrible force of the explosion. Mrs. Protheroe was 41 years old, a native of Pennsylvania, and leaves brothers and sisters in that state besides her husband who is a machinist in the employ of the Eagle Mining and Development Company to mourn her sad death.

Modern Methods of Farming in New Mexico
The following editorial taken from a recent issue of the Western Trail is worth consideration by the people who are inclined to think of settling in New Mexico as it gives truths in regard to conditions here which many do not realize as they will in a few years. The majesty o the country is its agricultural resources. It is the filter of the soft which supports the land and produces the material for commercial development and prosperity. New Mexico is attracting more attention today then at any former time on account of its agricultural possibilities. Home seekers are going to the Territory in great numbers, taking up and purchasing large acres of and and building new agricultural communities of considerable importance. While New Mexico lies within the Simi-arid belt, it is not altogether dependent upon an uncertain rainfall. In some parts of the Territory the timely use of water by irrigation is necessary in production of crops, but a large portion of the Territory east of the Rocky Mountains along the Rock Island Frisco Lines all through the so called "Semi-arid Belt" has vast agricultural possibilities without the aid of irrigation.

The Twentieth Century is the age of scientific development and this is as true of the methods of agriculture as of the methods of manufacturing and transportation. The genius of the Anglo Saxon Race is rapidly eliminating the element of chance from the problem of Soil Culture. The Semi arid Belt which a few years ago was considered wholly unfit for Agriculture is today under the system of Dry Soil Farming commonly known as "the Campbell System" and by the aid of irrigation producing larger and better crops every year. The farmer of today is learning to store up the rainfall in two ways. He first keeps his soil in such a state of cultivation that a large portion of the rainfall is absorbed as it falls.

The flood waters are retained in reservoirs for use in time needed. By the general use of these modern methods the farmer not only protects himself from devastating floods, but his crops are also protected from drought. The time is already here when he who keeps abreast of the times and adopts the Modern Methods of Soil Culture need have little fear of droughts. Now this once despised region promises to out strip in soil products the humid section. Modern irrigation has passed the experimental stage. people are beginning to understand that to control the water supply is to insure the harvest. The development of the semi arid west through irrigation has become a national policy and that portion of our domain which not with standing its fertile soil its material wealth and its wonderful climate, was despised because of its ability is rapidly gaining the title of, "The Better Half of the United States."

Two murderers who were confined in the jail at Lincoln made their escape last Friday night and up to the present time have not been recaptured. Rosarso Amilio was under sentence to hang was one of them while the man Gomez, who was recently captured by Sheriff Own and who is said to have three murders marked up against him. The general opinion seems to be that they had assistance from the outside of the jail in making their escape and that they were only out a short time until they secured horses and guns with which to make their dash for liberty. The chances are against ever getting either of them and particularly so in the case of Gomez who is a past master in the art of evading the officers.

HISTORIC CHURCH BURNS Built in Seventeenth Century and Destroyed by Fire May 14, 1907 Built before the pilgrim fathers landed on Plymouth Rock and used continually from that day until yesterday, the Catholic church at Ysletz was last night destroyed by fire said to have ignited from the candles burning before the alter. The destruction was complete, the fire fighting facilities of Ysleta being entirely inadequate to combat the conflagration. A few relics of great antiquity were saved, by the heroic efforts of Father Cordova and his congregation. The fire was discovered shortly before 8 o'clock and an alarm given which soon brought every citizen of the village to the scene, but it was of no avail and the historic place was soon a mass of ruins with ever thing a total loss except a few movable articles which were taken out before the fire had gained too great headway. The old church was built in the very heart of Ysleta in fact the village had been built up of on all sides around it. It was a very large structure, built of adobe and situated on a little knoll. It was built in the shape of a cross that being a favorite form of architecture among the Spanish missionaries. The surrounding grounds of the church consist of about seven acres, enclosed by a high adobe fence over which grape vines clustered profusely.

The actual date of the building of this church is not known but the records which existed until yesterday showed grants of land in that vicinity from Carlos II of Spain to Frav Jouquin Ynojosa of the order of Franciscans dated 1692 showing that it was an existing church at that time. The date is usually set about the beginning of the 17th century. The Ysleta church was officially known as "Nuestra Senora de Carmel" or "Our Lady Carmel." It was first known as the church of Corpus Christi but the name was changed later. Above the main altar was a statue of our lady Carmel. Many other statues of noted figures in sacred history were scattered about the church. That this church was formerly one of the rich ones of the new world was proven some years ago when in excavating in the churchyard a large silver sacristy lamp of unique pattern and peculiar workmanship bearing Spanish dates of several hundred years ago was found. It is supposed that it was buried at a time when the Indians were particularly dangerous to keep it from falling into their hands should the village be captured. The greatest loss in this is the destruction of the archives of the church. Here for hundreds of years the people of this vicinity had been piously recorded at birth, marriage, and death, and these are now destroyed it being impossible to save any of them, El Paso Herald

EDMUND G. ROSS DEAD
Man who saved Andrew Johnson from Conviction Passed away in Albuquerque Edmund G Ross Ex senator from Kansas and ex governor of New Mexico died at his home in Albuquerque on Wednesday of last week. Thus ended the earthly career of the man whose vote saved Andrew Johnson from conviction under the charges made in the articles of impeachment filed against him. The same vote called down upon Senator Ross' head the imprecations of the people of the state he represented and caused him to spend the remaining forty years of his life an exile from the state of his adoption. Happily however he lived long enough to know that the people of Kansas and in fact the people of the entire nation had learned to recognize the wisdom the devotion to principle and the complete self sacrifice under which he cast his vote at the close of the impeachment proceedings.
Edmund G Ross was born in Ashland Huron County Ohio, December 7 1829. At ten he entered a printing office. IN 1847 he traveled through Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin as a journey man printer, and was married in 1848 to Miss Fannie Lathrop a native of New York. Seven children were born of the marriage, Mrs. Ross dying in 1896 after fifty one years of married life. As a newspaper man Ross was employed on the Milwaukee Free Democrat, the Milwaukee Sentinel, the Lawrence Kansas Tribune and the Topeka Tribune, which he founded in 1859. After serving with the "Free State Troops" in the border wars he was elected a member of the Wyandotte constitutional convention, which framed the constitution under which the territory of Kansas was admitted into the union. He founded the Kansas State Record since become the Topeka Capital in partnership with his brother and the two erected the first three story concrete building exclusively for newspaper purposes in Kansas. In 1862 Ross raised a company of volunteers in Topeka for the support of the union cause became its captain and in 1864 was promoted to major of the Eleventh Kansas infantry. He served as colonel o battalion during the Price raid and participated in many engagements at one time having three horses shot under him and his shoulder straps shot away.
He served along the Kansas-Missouri border. After the war Ross published the Kansas Tribune at Lawrence. Governor Crawford of Kansas in 1866 appointed Ross to the seat in the senate mad vacant by the suicide of James Lane and in 1867 he was elected by the legislature to the office for the term of 1867 to 1871. On his return to Kansas after the impeachment trial, Ross was refused work on various newspapers though the work of the political ring which feared to see him get back into politics. He went to Coffeyville, Kansas and for several years published "Ross's Paper" exposing political corruption in the state, his plant being finally destroyed by a cyclone, Returning to Lawrence in 1873 he founded the "Evening Paper" and as its editor procured the downfall of United States Senator Pomeroy, Later he and his son published the "Spirit of Kansas" a weekly at Lawrence, the elder Ross afterward becoming foreman of the Lawrence Journal. Later he helped issue the "Daily Standard" at Lawrence. In 1880 he came to New Mexico and went to work at the printer's case on the Albuquerque Journal, remaining there until his appointment as governor by Cleveland in 1885.

Will Remain at Albuquerque An Albuquerque dispatch of May 11th gives an interview with E.P. Ripleu, president of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company. Relative to a dispatch from Fort Worth Texas in which Mr. Ripley is credited with saying that when the Belen cutoff is completed the rod extended from Belen across the Rio Puerco to a junction with the Santa Fe Pacific, the big shops now at Albuquerque will be removed to Belen, he denied the article in total. Mr. Ripley stated that the Belen cutoff undoubtedly will be completed and in operation within a year and its construction simply means that it will take the overflow from the New Mexico division through Raton and the Gloriet Mountains and furnish a line for a certain section for territory in the Southeast which is now reached now except by a long and tedious detour via Newton Kansas.

As a further denial of the Fort Worth dispatch, Mr. Ripley stated positively that the New Mexico division will remain on the main line instead of reducing or removing the shops from this city, the capacity of them will be greatly increased during the next year. "The Santa Fe Railway Company" said Mr. Ripley, "has invested too much money in improvements of their shops and other property in Albuquerque to slight this town and the people of this city and the Rio Grande valley have no cause to worry over false and seemingly malicious stories instituted relative to the building of the Belen cut off.

Encouraging Crop Report The crop bulletin issued May 9th by the Untied States Weather Bureau in Santa Fe for New Mexico is very optimistic. It says that the soil continues in excellent condition for plowing seeding, planting and the growth of crops. Practically all the available valley land is being brought under cultivation and moisture is abundant the rivers and creeks and even arroyos running full and but little or no irrigation being required. The early sown grain is growing finely and in the southern valleys the first crop of alfalfa is being cut while in other portions of the territory the crop is almost ready for cutting. Range grasses are growing well and cattle, horses, sheep and goats are generally in good condition only in northeastern counties reporting poor range and losses of cattle and sheep. Fruits continue very promising, apricots, peaches, cherries, plums and early apples setting fruit abundantly, with little or no apparent harm from the frost, although the daily average temperature has been four degrees below the normal during the past seven days and the frosts extended as far south as the Pecos valley, but doing little damage.

MURDERS MUST DIE Board of Pardons so Decides:
Two of the Murderers of Mrs. Youngblood to be Hanged at an Early Date, One Reprieved for Six Months. Denver, Colorado, May 18. After the hearing yesterday in the governor's office, the state board of pardons announced its decision in the case of the three Youngblood murderers who sought a commutating of sentence from hanging to life imprisonment. The verdict was that Frederick Arnold and Newton Andrews must be hanged on the week beginning Sunday, May 21st. Charles O Peters whose sanity has been questioned was granted a six month's reprieve and will be hanged the week beginning November 19th. All phases of the case were carefully considered by the board of pardons. A report submitted by the sanity commission signed by three of the doctors, stated that all three of the murderers are sane.

An additional report signed by Dr. J.E. Courtney with regard to the mental condition of Charles O. Peters indicated uncertainty and this undoubtedly led to his reprieve. It was a sad gathering in the governor's office. The members of the board of pardons were intent upon carrying out the law and their final decision does so to the letter. The tears of mothers and relatives present were of no avail and neither were the please of attorneys for the youths. Willis Elliott made a strong plea for clemency for the men. He does not believe in capital punishment and made a sincere and eloquent talk against it. Col J.M. Essington, Arnolds attorney, also spoke asking clemency. Dr. Pierce S Smith made a general argument against capital punishment. Governor McDonald probably will approve the report of the board as he has stated he would be guided by its recommendation.

The following is the report of the sanity commission: May 12 1905, "We have this day examined as to the mental condition of Charles O Peters. No 5974 Frederick Arnold and Newton Andrews, now confined in the state penitentiary under sentence for death. In our opinion each of the said convicts is sane Respectfully Howeel T. Pershing MD, S.D. Hopkins, MD, F.N. Carrier MD. Dr. Courtney's report states that while there war many indications that Peters is feigning insanity some of his symptoms are those of dementia leaving a reasonable doubt as to his sanity.

Willis Elliott stated last night that if sufficient money can be raised for the purpose the case of the Youngblood murderers will be taken on appeal to the Untied States Supreme Court, providing Governor McDonald will grant a stay of execution. It is estimated that it would between $500 and $600 to appeal the case. An appeal would be taken on behalf of some one member of the trio which would have the effect of staying execution in all three if the high court accepted the case.

New Mexico Land Offices
Arizonians are having a fight over the proposed removal of the United States land office from Tucson to Phoenix and the chances are that the people of Tucson and their friends will be strong enough to prevent the removal. It seems that one land office is ample for the needs of Arizona. In this respect New Mexico is ahead. This territory has four land offices and each does sufficient business to show that it is a necessity and must remain intact in order to handle the volume of business incidental to the making of homestead and desert land entries by settlers and the disposition of other parts of the public domain in this territory under the mineral and coal land laws of the United States.

It is the policy of the general land office to discontinue a local land office as soon as the necessity for it ceases or as soon as its business falls below a certain annual sum and it is found not self maintaining. In this territory the business of the four land offices located at Santa Fe, Roswell, Clayton and Las Cruces is on the increases which fact indicates that many immigrants and homestead settlers are arriving in New Mexico and that the public domain of this territory is being taken up and settled to a much greater extent than people generally know--Santa Fe New Mexican.

He charges the defendants with concealing from him all knowledge of the deed of trust for $10,000 and that they sold him the plant for $27, 500 representing this to be the sum for which a clear title to the property would be given to him. Later it developed that the trust company had a mortgage for $10,000 additional on the plant. The case promises to be interesting owing to the prominence of the parties involved.

From the put down some of the pretties samples of ore ever seen in this section have been taken out. At the bottom of the shaft J.C. Dunn took a quantity of dirt and had J.H. Whittlesey an old time miner wash it and Mr. Whittlesey found wire gold and magnetic iron. Mr. Coakley states that in all his mining experience in the San Andres where it is claimed there are all kinds of oar and good prospects he has not seen anything to equal this discovery. Capt. Thos T. Leak a reliable expert miner, who has worked in the San Andreas mines for many years says he has never seen anything to equal this prospect.

LAST MONDAY MORNING, FRANTIC HUSBAND

Last Monday morning at about 8:30 o clock the mining camp of Parsons in this county was the scene of one of the most terrible accidents which has ever occurred in this region. Mrs. William Protheroo and her child three years old were burned to death in their home, which was destroyed with all of its contents by the explosion of an oil can. From all reports it seems that Mrs. Protheroe must have been starting a fire in the cook stove with oil being a five gallon can for the purpose when the oil ignited probably from some fire which remained in the stove and exploded with terrific force. Mrs. Long and her daughter hear the explosion and seeing the house in flames tried to get to Mrs. Protheroe and help her finding this impossible, they at once called the men from the mill, but they were powerless to do anything as the house was a mass of flame when they reached it. A letter from parsons states that the stove was blown completely to pieces and the remains of the oil can also gave evidence of the terrible force of the explosion. Mrs. Protheroe was 41 years old, a native of Pennsylvania, and leaves brothers and sisters in that state besides her husband who is a machinist in the employ of the Eagle Mining and Development Company to mourn her sad death.

Modern Methods of Farming in New Mexico
The following editorial taken from a recent issue of the Western Trail is worth consideration by the people who are inclined to think of settling in New Mexico as it gives truths in regard to conditions here which many do not realize as they will in a few years. The majesty o the country is its agricultural resources. It is the filter of the soft which supports the land and produces the material for commercial development and prosperity. New Mexico is attracting more attention today then at any former time on account of its agricultural possibilities. Home seekers are going to the Territory in great numbers, taking up and purchasing large acres of and and building new agricultural communities of considerable importance. While New Mexico lies within the Simi-arid belt, it is not altogether dependent upon an uncertain rainfall. In some parts of the Territory the timely use of water by irrigation is necessary in production of crops, but a large portion of the Territory east of the Rocky Mountains along the Rock Island Frisco Lines all through the so called "Semi-arid Belt" has vast agricultural possibilities without the aid of irrigation.

The Twentieth Century is the age of scientific development and this is as true of the methods of agriculture as of the methods of manufacturing and transportation. The genius of the Anglo Saxon Race is rapidly eliminating the element of chance from the problem of Soil Culture. The Semi arid Belt which a few years ago was considered wholly unfit for Agriculture is today under the system of Dry Soil Farming commonly known as "the Campbell System" and by the aid of irrigation producing larger and better crops every year. The farmer of today is learning to store up the rainfall in two ways. He first keeps his soil in such a state of cultivation that a large portion of the rainfall is absorbed as it falls.

The flood waters are retained in reservoirs for use in time needed. By the general use of these modern methods the farmer not only protects himself from devastating floods, but his crops are also protected from drought. The time is already here when he who keeps abreast of the times and adopts the Modern Methods of Soil Culture need have little fear of droughts. Now this once despised region promises to out strip in soil products the humid section. Modern irrigation has passed the experimental stage. people are beginning to understand that to control the water supply is to insure the harvest. The development of the semi arid west through irrigation has become a national policy and that portion of our domain which not with standing its fertile soil its material wealth and its wonderful climate, was despised because of its ability is rapidly gaining the title of, "The Better Half of the United States."

Murders Escape
Two murderers who were confined in the jail at Lincoln made their escape last Friday night and up to the present time have not been recaptured. Rosarso Amilio was under sentence to hang was one of them while the man Gomez, who was recently captured by Sheriff Own and who is said to have three murders marked up against him. The general opinion seems to be that they had assistance from the outside of the jail in making their escape and that they were only out a short time until they secured horses and guns with which to make their dash for liberty. The chances are against ever getting either of them and particularly so in the case of Gomez who is a past master in the art of evading the officers.

HISTORIC CHURCH BURNS Built in Seventeenth Century and Destroyed by Fire May 14, 1907 Built before the pilgrim fathers landed on Plymouth Rock and used continually from that day until yesterday, the Catholic church at Ysletz was last night destroyed by fire said to have ignited from the candles burning before the alter. The destruction was complete, the fire fighting facilities of Ysleta being entirely inadequate to combat the conflagration. A few relics of great antiquity were saved, by the heroic efforts of Father Cordova and his congregation. The fire was discovered shortly before 8 o'clock and an alarm given which soon brought every citizen of the village to the scene, but it was of no avail and the historic place was soon a mass of ruins with ever thing a total loss except a few movable articles which were taken out before the fire had gained too great headway. The old church was built in the very heart of Ysleta in fact the village had been built up of on all sides around it. It was a very large structure, built of adobe and situated on a little knoll. It was built in the shape of a cross that being a favorite form of architecture among the Spanish missionaries. The surrounding grounds of the church consist of about seven acres, enclosed by a high adobe fence over which grape vines clustered profusely.

The actual date of the building of this church is not known but the records which existed until yesterday showed grants of land in that vicinity from Carlos II of Spain to Frav Jouquin Ynojosa of the order of Franciscans dated 1692 showing that it was an existing church at that time. The date is usually set about the beginning of the 17th century. The Ysleta church was officially known as "Nuestra Senora de Carmel" or "Our Lady Carmel." It was first known as the church of Corpus Christi but the name was changed later. Above the main altar was a statue of our lady Carmel. Many other statues of noted figures in sacred history were scattered about the church. That this church was formerly one of the rich ones of the new world was proven some years ago when in excavating in the churchyard a large silver sacristy lamp of unique pattern and peculiar workmanship bearing Spanish dates of several hundred years ago was found. It is supposed that it was buried at a time when the Indians were particularly dangerous to keep it from falling into their hands should the village be captured. The greatest loss in this is the destruction of the archives of the church. Here for hundreds of years the people of this vicinity had been piously recorded at birth, marriage, and death, and these are now destroyed it being impossible to save any of them, El Paso Herald

EDMUND G. ROSS DEAD
Man who saved Andrew Johnson from Conviction Passed away in Albuquerque Edmund G Ross Ex senator from Kansas and ex governor of New Mexico died at his home in Albuquerque on Wednesday of last week. Thus ended the earthly career of the man whose vote saved Andrew Johnson from conviction under the charges made in the articles of impeachment filed against him. The same vote called down upon Senator Ross' head the imprecations of the people of the state he represented and caused him to spend the remaining forty years of his life an exile from the state of his adoption. Happily however he lived long enough to know that the people of Kansas and in fact the people of the entire nation had learned to recognize the wisdom the devotion to principle and the complete self sacrifice under which he cast his vote at the close of the impeachment proceedings.
Edmund G Ross was born in Ashland Huron County Ohio, December 7 1829. At ten he entered a printing office. IN 1847 he traveled through Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin as a journey man printer, and was married in 1848 to Miss Fannie Lathrop a native of New York. Seven children were born of the marriage, Mrs. Ross dying in 1896 after fifty one years of married life. As a newspaper man Ross was employed on the Milwaukee Free Democrat, the Milwaukee Sentinel, the Lawrence Kansas Tribune and the Topeka Tribune, which he founded in 1859. After serving with the "Free State Troops" in the border wars he was elected a member of the Wyandotte constitutional convention, which framed the constitution under which the territory of Kansas was admitted into the union. He founded the Kansas State Record since become the Topeka Capital in partnership with his brother and the two erected the first three story concrete building exclusively for newspaper purposes in Kansas. In 1862 Ross raised a company of volunteers in Topeka for the support of the union cause became its captain and in 1864 was promoted to major of the Eleventh Kansas infantry. He served as colonel o battalion during the Price raid and participated in many engagements at one time having three horses shot under him and his shoulder straps shot away.
He served along the Kansas-Missouri border. After the war Ross published the Kansas Tribune at Lawrence. Governor Crawford of Kansas in 1866 appointed Ross to the seat in the senate mad vacant by the suicide of James Lane and in 1867 he was elected by the legislature to the office for the term of 1867 to 1871. On his return to Kansas after the impeachment trial, Ross was refused work on various newspapers though the work of the political ring which feared to see him get back into politics. He went to Coffeyville, Kansas and for several years published "Ross's Paper" exposing political corruption in the state, his plant being finally destroyed by a cyclone, Returning to Lawrence in 1873 he founded the "Evening Paper" and as its editor procured the downfall of United States Senator Pomeroy, Later he and his son published the "Spirit of Kansas" a weekly at Lawrence, the elder Ross afterward becoming foreman of the Lawrence Journal. Later he helped issue the "Daily Standard" at Lawrence. In 1880 he came to New Mexico and went to work at the printer's case on the Albuquerque Journal, remaining there until his appointment as governor by Cleveland in 1885.

Will Remain at Albuquerque An Albuquerque dispatch of May 11th gives an interview with E.P. Ripleu, president of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company. Relative to a dispatch from Fort Worth Texas in which Mr. Ripley is credited with saying that when the Belen cutoff is completed the rod extended from Belen across the Rio Puerco to a junction with the Santa Fe Pacific, the big shops now at Albuquerque will be removed to Belen, he denied the article in total. Mr. Ripley stated that the Belen cutoff undoubtedly will be completed and in operation within a year and its construction simply means that it will take the overflow from the New Mexico division through Raton and the Gloriet Mountains and furnish a line for a certain section for territory in the Southeast which is now reached now except by a long and tedious detour via Newton Kansas.

As a further denial of the Fort Worth dispatch, Mr. Ripley stated positively that the New Mexico division will remain on the main line instead of reducing or removing the shops from this city, the capacity of them will be greatly increased during the next year. "The Santa Fe Railway Company" said Mr. Ripley, "has invested too much money in improvements of their shops and other property in Albuquerque to slight this town and the people of this city and the Rio Grande valley have no cause to worry over false and seemingly malicious stories instituted relative to the building of the Belen cut off.

Practically all the available valley land is being brought under cultivation and moisture is abundant the rivers and creeks and even arroyos running full and but little or no irrigation being required. The early sown grain is growing finely and in the southern valleys the first crop of alfalfa is being cut while in other portions of the territory the crop is almost ready for cutting. Range grasses are growing well and cattle, horses, sheep and goats are generally in good condition only in northeastern counties reporting poor range and losses of cattle and sheep. Fruits continue very promising, apricots, peaches, cherries, plums and early apples setting fruit abundantly, with little or no apparent harm from the frost, although the daily average temperature has been four degrees below the normal during the past seven days and the frosts extended as far south as the Pecos valley, but doing little damage.

MURDERS MUST DIE Board of Pardons so Decides:
Two of the Murderers of Mrs. Youngblood to be Hanged at an Early Date, One Reprieved for Six Months. Denver, Colorado, May 18. After the hearing yesterday in the governor's office, the state board of pardons announced its decision in the case of the three Youngblood murderers who sought a commutating of sentence from hanging to life imprisonment. The verdict was that Frederick Arnold and Newton Andrews must be hanged on the week beginning Sunday, May 21st. Charles O Peters whose sanity has been questioned was granted a six month's reprieve and will be hanged the week beginning November 19th. All phases of the case were carefully considered by the board of pardons. A report submitted by the sanity commission signed by three of the doctors, stated that all three of the murderers are sane.

An additional report signed by Dr. J.E. Courtney with regard to the mental condition of Charles O. Peters indicated uncertainty and this undoubtedly led to his reprieve. It was a sad gathering in the governor's office. The members of the board of pardons were intent upon carrying out the law and their final decision does so to the letter. The tears of mothers and relatives present were of no avail and neither were the please of attorneys for the youths. Willis Elliott made a strong plea for clemency for the men. He does not believe in capital punishment and made a sincere and eloquent talk against it. Col J.M. Essington, Arnolds attorney, also spoke asking clemency. Dr. Pierce S Smith made a general argument against capital punishment. Governor McDonald probably will approve the report of the board as he has stated he would be guided by its recommendation.

The following is the report of the sanity commission: May 12 1905, "We have this day examined as to the mental condition of Charles O Peters. No 5974 Frederick Arnold and Newton Andrews, now confined in the state penitentiary under sentence for death. In our opinion each of the said convicts is sane Respectfully Howeel T. Pershing MD, S.D. Hopkins, MD, F.N. Carrier MD. Dr. Courtney's report states that while there war many indications that Peters is feigning insanity some of his symptoms are those of dementia leaving a reasonable doubt as to his sanity.

Willis Elliott stated last night that if sufficient money can be raised for the purpose the case of the Youngblood murderers will be taken on appeal to the Untied States Supreme Court, providing Governor McDonald will grant a stay of execution. It is estimated that it would between $500 and $600 to appeal the case. An appeal would be taken on behalf of some one member of the trio which would have the effect of staying execution in all three if the high court accepted the case.

New Mexico Land Offices
Arizonians are having a fight over the proposed removal of the United States land office from Tucson to Phoenix and the chances are that the people of Tucson and their friends will be strong enough to prevent the removal. It seems that one land office is ample for the needs of Arizona. In this respect New Mexico is ahead. This territory has four land offices and each does sufficient business to show that it is a necessity and must remain intact in order to handle the volume of business incidental to the making of homestead and desert land entries by settlers and the disposition of other parts of the public domain in this territory under the mineral and coal land laws of the United States.

It is the policy of the general land office to discontinue a local land office as soon as the necessity for it ceases or as soon as its business falls below a certain annual sum and it is found not self maintaining. In this territory the business of the four land offices located at Santa Fe, Roswell, Clayton and Las Cruces is on the increases which fact indicates that many immigrants and homestead settlers are arriving in New Mexico and that the public domain of this territory is being taken up and settled to a much greater extent than people generally know--Santa Fe New Mexican.

New Mexico Crops
The crop bulletin for New Mexico issued June 13th says: Water continues abundant and streams are again high. The lower Pecos valley has suffered a severe setback in the loss of the Lake Avalon dam which went out having just been rebuilt. Field crops generally are doing well, oats are nearing harvest and the cultivation of corn is processing favorably ( rest of sentence unreadable) nicely in northern districts, with excellent yield. The rains have afforded opportunity for additional planting and some beans, cane and fodder crops have been planted.

Range grasses have been greatly revived by the rains and are growing finely and many stockmen report the best grass in many years at this season. Some of the native grasses are maturing. Stock continues to advance steadily and is rapidly approaching prime condition is all parts of the territory. young stock is doing well especially lambs. The fruits continue very promising and an abundance seems assured, although generally peaches and pears will be a light yield. Cherries are being marketed in northern counties.

Electric Light Litigation
An important suit has been filed in the Bernalillo county District Court at Albuquerque in which prominent citizens are involved. The plaintiff is Gregory Page, a wealthy man of Gallup New Mexico, who recently purchased the Gallup electric light plant from W.H. Gallenwater, president of the Monteguma Trust Company of this city, W.H. Wold and Maynard Gunsul. Page is suing to have a deed of trust for $10,000 set aside on the ground of fraud.

He charges the defendants with concealing from him all knowledge of the deed of trust for $10,000 and that they sold him the plant for $27, 500 representing this to be the sum for which a clear title to the property would be given to him. Later it developed that the trust company had a mortgage for $10,000 additional on the plant. The case promises to be interesting owing to the prominence of the parties involved. The plaintiff asks a recession of the contract on the ground of fraud and failure of specific performance.

He also criticized the laws as being indefinite in not defining the word "village". The law provides that no license for the sale of liquor shall be granted in towns or villages of less than one hundred inhabitants.

Value of Good Roads The Estancia News complains because the Board of County Commissioners of Torrance county has thus far established only two public roads. 

There are boards of but few other counties that did as well in so short a time. The Estancia News maintains that there should be a public road along every section line and that roads a mile apart are not too many. Santa Fe county dare hardly think of suck luxuries at present for it does not even keep in repair the roads it has. The road from Santa Fe to Glorieta for instance one of the most traveled highways in the county and part of the historic Santa Fe trail has been in bad condition for a number of years and where it passes over Apache hill is today hardly passable. 

It is remarkable too that as soon s the Santa Fe trail enters San Miguel county it is kept is much better condition which redounds to the benefit of the many settlers of that county who use it and results in diverting traffic to Las Vegas which is farther away than Santa Fe but much more approachable on account of the better condition of the roads centering there. This is a matter that the Board of County Commissioners should bear in mind when it divides the county into road districts under new law and appoints road commissioners who would be held responsible for the condition of the roads in their districts--Santa Fe New Mexican.

The fact of the rope being taken down from the saddle is an indication that he got off of his horse and sat down by the road side and died of a heart failure. The deceased was a respected citizen, and one of the oldest inhabitants of the country, being past 70 years of age.

Almost in the town a mine containing native copper, hematite of iron and free milling gold has been discovered, and the fend can be traced on the surface for two miles. From the put down some of the pretties samples of ore ever seen in this section have been taken out. At the bottom of the shaft J.C. Dunn took a quantity of dirt and had J.H. Whittlesey an old time miner wash it and Mr. Whittlesey found wire gold and magnetic iron. Mr. Coakley states that in all his mining experience in the San Andres where it is claimed there are all kinds of oar and good prospects he has not seen anything to equal this discovery. Capt. Thos T. Leak a reliable expert miner, who has worked in the San Andreas mines for many years says he has never seen anything to equal this prospect.
Hon. Nestor A Young of Los Angeles, California took up an adjoining claim. Mr. Young is an old timer in the California mining districts and is well pleased with what he has seen of this mine.

OIL CAN EXPLODES BURNS WOMAN AND CHILD TO DEATH IN THEIR HOME AT PARSONS. LAST MONDAY MORNING, FRANTIC HUSBAND AND FRIENDS POWERLESS TO ASSIST.
Last Monday morning at about 8:30 o clock the mining camp of Parsons in this county was the scene of one of the most terrible accidents which has ever occurred in this region. Mrs. William Protheroo and her child three years old were burned to death in their home, which was destroyed with all of its contents by the explosion of an oil can. From all reports it seems that Mrs. Protheroe must have been starting a fire in the cook stove with oil being a five gallon can for the purpose when the oil ignited probably from some fire which remained in the stove and exploded with terrific force. Mrs. Long and her daughter hear the explosion and seeing the house in flames tried to get to Mrs. Protheroe and help her finding this impossible, they at once called the men from the mill, but they were powerless to do anything as the house was a mass of flame when they reached it. A letter from parsons states that the stove was blown completely to pieces and the remains of the oil can also gave evidence of the terrible force of the explosion. Mrs. Protheroe was 41 years old, a native of Pennsylvania, and leaves brothers and sisters in that state besides her husband who is a machinist in the employ of the Eagle Mining and Development Company to mourn her sad death.

Modern Methods of Farming in New Mexico
The following editorial taken from a recent issue of the Western Trail is worth consideration by the people who are inclined to think of settling in New Mexico as it gives truths in regard to conditions here which many do not realize as they will in a few years. The majesty o the country is its agricultural resources. It is the filter of the soft which supports the land and produces the material for commercial development and prosperity. New Mexico is attracting more attention today then at any former time on account of its agricultural possibilities. Home seekers are going to the Territory in great numbers, taking up and purchasing large acres of and and building new agricultural communities of considerable importance. While New Mexico lies within the Simi-arid belt, it is not altogether dependent upon an uncertain rainfall. In some parts of the Territory the timely use of water by irrigation is necessary in production of crops, but a large portion of the Territory east of the Rocky Mountains along the Rock Island Frisco Lines all through the so called "Semi-arid Belt" has vast agricultural possibilities without the aid of irrigation.

The Twentieth Century is the age of scientific development and this is as true of the methods of agriculture as of the methods of manufacturing and transportation. The genius of the Anglo Saxon Race is rapidly eliminating the element of chance from the problem of Soil Culture. The Semi arid Belt which a few years ago was considered wholly unfit for Agriculture is today under the system of Dry Soil Farming commonly known as "the Campbell System" and by the aid of irrigation producing larger and better crops every year. The farmer of today is learning to store up the rainfall in two ways. He first keeps his soil in such a state of cultivation that a large portion of the rainfall is absorbed as it falls.

The flood waters are retained in reservoirs for use in time needed. By the general use of these modern methods the farmer not only protects himself from devastating floods, but his crops are also protected from drought. The time is already here when he who keeps abreast of the times and adopts the Modern Methods of Soil Culture need have little fear of droughts. Now this once despised region promises to out strip in soil products the humid section. Modern irrigation has passed the experimental stage. people are beginning to understand that to control the water supply is to insure the harvest. The development of the semi arid west through irrigation has become a national policy and that portion of our domain which not with standing its fertile soil its material wealth and its wonderful climate, was despised because of its ability is rapidly gaining the title of, "The Better Half of the United States."

The general opinion seems to be that they had assistance from the outside of the jail in making their escape and that they were only out a short time until they secured horses and guns with which to make their dash for liberty. The chances are against ever getting either of them and particularly so in the case of Gomez who is a past master in the art of evading the officers.

HISTORIC CHURCH BURNS Built in Seventeenth Century and Destroyed by Fire May 14, 1907 Built before the pilgrim fathers landed on Plymouth Rock and used continually from that day until yesterday, the Catholic church at Ysletz was last night destroyed by fire said to have ignited from the candles burning before the alter. The destruction was complete, the fire fighting facilities of Ysleta being entirely inadequate to combat the conflagration. A few relics of great antiquity were saved, by the heroic efforts of Father Cordova and his congregation. The fire was discovered shortly before 8 o'clock and an alarm given which soon brought every citizen of the village to the scene, but it was of no avail and the historic place was soon a mass of ruins with ever thing a total loss except a few movable articles which were taken out before the fire had gained too great headway. The old church was built in the very heart of Ysleta in fact the village had been built up of on all sides around it. It was a very large structure, built of adobe and situated on a little knoll. It was built in the shape of a cross that being a favorite form of architecture among the Spanish missionaries. The surrounding grounds of the church consist of about seven acres, enclosed by a high adobe fence over which grape vines clustered profusely.

The actual date of the building of this church is not known but the records which existed until yesterday showed grants of land in that vicinity from Carlos II of Spain to Frav Jouquin Ynojosa of the order of Franciscans dated 1692 showing that it was an existing church at that time. The date is usually set about the beginning of the 17th century. The Ysleta church was officially known as "Nuestra Senora de Carmel" or "Our Lady Carmel." It was first known as the church of Corpus Christi but the name was changed later. Above the main altar was a statue of our lady Carmel. Many other statues of noted figures in sacred history were scattered about the church. That this church was formerly one of the rich ones of the new world was proven some years ago when in excavating in the churchyard a large silver sacristy lamp of unique pattern and peculiar workmanship bearing Spanish dates of several hundred years ago was found. It is supposed that it was buried at a time when the Indians were particularly dangerous to keep it from falling into their hands should the village be captured. The greatest loss in this is the destruction of the archives of the church. Here for hundreds of years the people of this vicinity had been piously recorded at birth, marriage, and death, and these are now destroyed it being impossible to save any of them, El Paso Herald

EDMUND G. ROSS DEAD
Man who saved Andrew Johnson from Conviction Passed away in Albuquerque Edmund G Ross Ex senator from Kansas and ex governor of New Mexico died at his home in Albuquerque on Wednesday of last week. Thus ended the earthly career of the man whose vote saved Andrew Johnson from conviction under the charges made in the articles of impeachment filed against him. The same vote called down upon Senator Ross' head the imprecations of the people of the state he represented and caused him to spend the remaining forty years of his life an exile from the state of his adoption. Happily however he lived long enough to know that the people of Kansas and in fact the people of the entire nation had learned to recognize the wisdom the devotion to principle and the complete self sacrifice under which he cast his vote at the close of the impeachment proceedings.
Edmund G Ross was born in Ashland Huron County Ohio, December 7 1829. At ten he entered a printing office. IN 1847 he traveled through Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin as a journey man printer, and was married in 1848 to Miss Fannie Lathrop a native of New York. Seven children were born of the marriage, Mrs. Ross dying in 1896 after fifty one years of married life. As a newspaper man Ross was employed on the Milwaukee Free Democrat, the Milwaukee Sentinel, the Lawrence Kansas Tribune and the Topeka Tribune, which he founded in 1859. After serving with the "Free State Troops" in the border wars he was elected a member of the Wyandotte constitutional convention, which framed the constitution under which the territory of Kansas was admitted into the union. He founded the Kansas State Record since become the Topeka Capital in partnership with his brother and the two erected the first three story concrete building exclusively for newspaper purposes in Kansas. In 1862 Ross raised a company of volunteers in Topeka for the support of the union cause became its captain and in 1864 was promoted to major of the Eleventh Kansas infantry. He served as colonel o battalion during the Price raid and participated in many engagements at one time having three horses shot under him and his shoulder straps shot away.
He served along the Kansas-Missouri border. After the war Ross published the Kansas Tribune at Lawrence. Governor Crawford of Kansas in 1866 appointed Ross to the seat in the senate mad vacant by the suicide of James Lane and in 1867 he was elected by the legislature to the office for the term of 1867 to 1871. On his return to Kansas after the impeachment trial, Ross was refused work on various newspapers though the work of the political ring which feared to see him get back into politics. He went to Coffeyville, Kansas and for several years published "Ross's Paper" exposing political corruption in the state, his plant being finally destroyed by a cyclone, Returning to Lawrence in 1873 he founded the "Evening Paper" and as its editor procured the downfall of United States Senator Pomeroy, Later he and his son published the "Spirit of Kansas" a weekly at Lawrence, the elder Ross afterward becoming foreman of the Lawrence Journal. Later he helped issue the "Daily Standard" at Lawrence. In 1880 he came to New Mexico and went to work at the printer's case on the Albuquerque Journal, remaining there until his appointment as governor by Cleveland in 1885.
