FIRST STREtT RESTAURANT
SCENE OF LIVELY FIGHT
About 7 o'clock yesterday morn
ing Refuslo Luna, employed as a dish
washer in a First street restaurant,
received a bad cut in the right arm
Just above, foe wrist, which severed
an artery, as the result of a fight
with W. K. Lee. a colored waiter lu
the establishment. Lee did not es
cape unhurt, as Luna slashed him
acioss the nose with a butcher knife,
which required the attention of a
physician, who took several stitches
In the nose.
It seems that the fight was the re
sult of Lee calling Luna some vile
nameo. He made at Lee with a knife
and the colored waiter In return
shied Beveral cuds at the head of the
manipulator of the dish rag. One of
the cups struck the side of the door,
and a broken fragment struck Luna
on the wrist, making a bad wound,
from which the blook flowed fieely.
Luna ran for a doctor's office, whiie
Policeman Knapp took charge of Lee.
He was locked up, and given a hear
ing in police court this morning.
A number of witnesses, including
waiters, cooks and other employes of
the restaurant, were examined, and
the testimony went to show that Lee
was probably the aggressor In the
fight, but Inasmuch as Luna used 4
knlle, the Judge found both guilty of
assault and fined each 110 and costi.
They paid up and were discharged.

HIGHLY HISTORICAL AND
At St. John's Episcopal church
Sunday morning the rector. Rev. A.O.
Harrison, delivered an exceedingly In
teresting and Instructive discourse,
taking for his text the words: "O,
worship the Lord in the Beauty of
Holiness,", found In the ninety-sixth
Psalm. After a brief outline of the
hlBto. y of divine worship, from the
ancient days, when the highest con
ception of the term was sacrifice,
(frequently sacrifice of a character
similar to that which has made the
worship of modern Pagan tribes so
hideous In the eyes of all Christen
dom), Mr. Harrison followed with a
plain elucidation of the Biblical au
thority for the liturgical wo: ship of
the church of today. He offered not
only convincing Scriptural evidence
Justifying the beautirul ceremonials
of the Episcopal church, but he dem
onstrated the utility and propriety of
rendering tne place of worship as
beautiful and Impressive in appear
ance as aitineers can make it.
From a historical viewpoint, his
discourse was highly Instructive, and
worthy of a permanent place in the
literature or tne church.

BROWNS WALLOP BLUES
IN SUNDAY'S GAME
In tho first of a series of three
games, Albuquerque yesterday after
noon at Traction Pai k, deieated the
Las Vegas Blues by the decisive score
of 9 to 3. Up to the seventh inning
the visitors had failed to get a man
across the home plate, and the local
tans were rooting vigorously, believ
ing that Albuquerque, with eight runs,
would shut out the champions.
In this Inning, however, Las Vegas
made several clean hits and scored
three runs. At no stage of the game
after this were the Blues in It. Starr
was in his old-time form, striking out
ten men and making three hits.
Matney, for the visitors, pitched
good ball up to tbe fourth inning,
when the score stood 1 to '0, in favor
ot the home team, but in this Inning
he went up in a balloon and the fire
works commenced. Before the side
was retired, Albuquerque had chalked
up nine runs.
Eveiy member of the Albuquerque
team played gilt-edged ball, and not
one costly error was made. Yester
day's game clearly shows what good,
hard practice will do, and the fans
now believe that the Browns will
steady down and play winning ball
for the remainder of the season.

and umpired a clean game, not one
of his decisions being questioned by
either side. He called out the balls
and strikes in a clear tone, which was
