INSWUIING CRIMINAL SUITS
Washington, I), C, July 10. That
Secretary Wilson intends to take no
step backward in his report on the
cotton leak investigation was evi
denced today by his statement that
he was not afraid of any libel suit
w.iirh might be filed against him by
Mr. Price or others mentioned in his
report. In fact, he said he would
welcome such action, because it might
lie the means of developing some
facts not already uncovered, and
which it is desirable to know.
"This is a quarrel between gam
blers, brought about by dissatisfaction
of some of them in not getting what
they thought was due them. I have
nothing to take back. As the 'head of
tho department of agriculture, Vt was
my duty and my right to give to the
public the result of the Investigation
by the secret service agents, into the
chaiges which had been tiled leading
up to the dismissal of Holmes."
The secretary added that he had
given no consideration to Mr. Price's
request as presented through his at
torneys, "to w.ithdraw unjust, offen
sive and unsustained charges and im
plications," and had reached the de
termination to take no further action
in the matter. He said ho would not
communicate with cither Price or
his attorney in any way.
ATTORNEY GENERAL MAY
Oyster Day, May 10. It is regarded
here as not unlikely that criminal
prosecution may result from the in
vestigation of the cotton report leak
in the department of agriculture.
While no decision to institute crim
inal proceedings has been reached.
the suhejet is being considered by
Attorney General Moody, who later

F. ACTIOUS HORSE DRA(S
ITS RIDER TO DEATH
Word has reached this city of the
shocking death of Carpio Pino, which
occurred Saturday night near Cubero,
McKinley county. The. particulars, as
given by Julian Jaramlllo, one of the
searching party, are that Pino, who
left Cubero to go to Acomita, was
thrown from his horse and killed.
His foot evidently caught, in t.ie
stirrup and he was dragged to death,
as the rocky trail traveled by t.ie
lio.se was bespattered with blood and
The first hint his friends received
that something was wrong was when
Pino's horse returned to Cubero with
out its rider. A party was immedi
ately organized and went In s-areh of
Pino, finding his badly mutilated body
by the roadside.

Doanc's Capture Frustrates Bold Attempt to Steal
Boy and Hold Him For Ransom-Prisoner
Taken to Gallup Last Night.
It now develops that the capture of
Claude Doane in Taos canyon, near
Embudo on Saturday by Officers Ben
Williams and Fred Fornoff, nipped in
the bud tho execution of one of the
boldest crimes ever concocted in the
history of the Southwest.
In order to get even with Governor
Otero for not granting him a pardon,
Doane had laid careful plans to ab
duct Miguel Otero, Jr., the young
on of the governor, and hold the boy
for a heavy ransom. Those who
were to assist Doane In this dating
pleco of work were a couple of con
victs, now confined In tho territorial
penitentiary 'at Santa Fe, but whose
lerms are soon to expire.
But Doane's capture Is now believed
to havo upset theso plans and also
to have put a stop to tho organiza
tion of a desperate band of outlaws,
who had planned numerous hank: and
train robberies throughout New Mcx-
co and Colo: ado.
Surrendered Without Firing a Shot. I
ine particulars or tne capture or
Doane in Taos canyon, near Einbudo.
on Saturday, are very brief. It seems
mat Donne and his pal, Joro Baca,
nad been pressed so close by their
pursuers that they had almost ridden
their ho:se tn death. The outlaws
had ritlden up to the ranch house of
i Mexiran family near Einbudo and
were trying to negotiate for the pur
chase of two fresh horses. Standing
iliout twenty-five yards away were
their worn-nut horses, on which were
strapped their lilies, ix-s-hoolor,
etc., the men having left these bo-
hind in order not to arouse suspicion.
TRAIN CUTS OFF
LITTLE BOY'S LEG
Henry Chaves Crippled for
Life As Result of Jump-
irig on Trains. r
SOON RALLIES FROM OPERATION
Henry Chaves, tho 10-year-old son
of Mr. and Mrs. Ramon Chaves, resid
ing south of the city near the stock
yards, was the victim of a frightful
accident In the south end of the Santa
Fe yards at about 9:30 o'clock this
morning, in which his right leg was
crushed off Just below the knee.
The particulars of the accident are
that the little fellow, who has been in
the habit of Jumping on and off trains
that were switching in the yards, was
engnged in this dangerous practice
this morning when the accident oc
curred. He missed his hold on the
side of a box car and fell beneath tho
car, his right leg Btrlklng the rail. In
an Instant the extremity was cut off
The accident was witnessed by sev
eral switchmen, who had been trying
to keep tho boy off the cars. One of
them telephoned for the ambulance
of o. W. Strong's Sons', which ar
rived in a very few minutes. He was
hurriedly removed to St. Joseph's hos
pital and was nearly dead from tho
loss of blood when laid upon tho oper
An examination showed that the
wound was of such a character that It
would be necessary to amputate the
leg above the knee and this was done.
The little fellow stood tho operation
hroically and this afternoon had com
pletely rallied from the effects of the
operation. He is expected to recover
from his injury, unless blood poisou
should set in.
