A blaze which was discovered short
ly after 7 o'clock lust niijht In the
commissary building at the Indian
school near this cliy, destroyed that
building with all it contents, entail
ine a loss estimated at between
lu,0d0 and 12,wui.
The oritsin of the fir Is a mystf"rf, '
an there was no fire of any kind in
the huildltiH. Shortly after 7 o'clock
one of the, Indian boys discovered
flames and smoke Issuing from the
roof of the structure near the middle
and he gave the alarm by ringing the
fire bell uu the grounds. Superintend
ent Allen appeared on the scene al
most Immediately after the turning
in of the alarm and ordered out the
fire brigade at the school. In the
meantime he, with several other offi
cials at the school, entered the build
ing, but there was not a trace of
tire on the first floor.
As soori as the fire department at
the school got a line strung to the
burning building and a stream of wa
ter playing on the flames, Mr. Allen
sent in a telephone message to Chief
Burtiess, of the Albuquerque fire de
partment, asking assistance. The lo
cal department responded and pro
ceeded as far as Mountain road. Here
it was discovered that the plug con
nections at the school were for one
and one-half inch hose, while the city
department only carried hose for a
two-Inch connection, therefore it
would have been useless for them to
proceed further and they returned to
the hose house. However, Fire Chief
Burtless continued to the school and
rendered much assistance in direct
ing the school brigade how to fight the
Fire Burned Fiercely.
Owing to the Inflammable contents
of the building, the fire burned fierce
ly and the flames soon got beyond con
trol. As the commissary building is
situated quite a distance from the
main- buildings danger from the fire
spreading was not great and all efforts
were turned toward trying to save at
least a portion of this building and its
contents. The fire fighting apparatus
and the water power were entirely
inadequate to cope with the fire, how
ever, and it burncV throughout the
night and until late this morning.
The fire made a big blaze and could
' be plainly seen from this city and
created no little excitement, as the
first report that was received was to
the effect that the Indian school was
in danger of being (totally destroyed.
Quite a number of 'people made the
trip of a mile and a half to see the
fire, while many walked up into the
Highlands where they could get a
good view of the burning building.
Lost Almost Total.
Superintendent Alien reported to
The Citizen today that the loss on
the building and contents would be
almost total, as there was no Insur
ance. The Ereatest loss, Mr. Allen
says, will be of clothing and subsis
tence, of which the Dunuing contain
ed Dractlcally a year's sjipply, with a
value of perhaps $8,000. The building
was valued at $2,300. With winter
coming on this loss will be keenly felt
until a new supply of clothing and
foodstuffs can be gotten in. There is
left on hand enough subsistence to
last for a week or ten days and by
that time the school authorities say
they will be able to get in more sup
plies and there will be no danger of
any suffering among the pupils at the
Today the boys at the school were
busy going over the ruins and saving
what they could. Quite a quantity of
canned cooda of all kinds, beans, cor
fee, etc., was taken out of the ruins
which had not been damaged In the
least and this will aid much In help
ing out until the arrival of the new
Perfect Order Prevailed.
One thing worthy of more tiiau
passing note and which reflects great
credit upou the school authorities is
the perfect order that prevailed during
the fire. When the alarm was turned
in the little tots at the institution had
retired for the night. As a precaution
ary measure they were awakened and
dressed and marched In perfect order
from the dormitory to the yard, where
they remained for several hours
watching the fire. In every other de
partment there was very little excite
ment and in no instance was there
the least sign of a panic. The value
of the daily tire drills at Hie school
was plainly demonstrated last night.
Superintendent Allen last night no
tified the interior department by tele
graph of the burning of the building
and today received assurances that
the biiihrfng would at once be rebuilt.
INDIAN MEDICINE MAN IS
This mornlnn there was a call of the
criminal docket and Judge Ira A. Ab
bott set many cases for trial at the
December term of the district court.
Probably the most Interesting case
that will be tried at this term is thai
of the Territory vs. F.slavlo Vigi
who was Indicted by the recent te
rltorial grand Jury for assault with
Intent to murder. The alleged crin e
was committed over a year ago at
Harelas. Other important cases a-e

Dnane and Jose Baca, charged wi h
horse stealing; William Wagner, a
member of the Albuquerque poll :e
force, charged with embezzlement and
assault with Tntent to kill, and John
Dunning, charged with inciting and
participating in a riot, the case of
Amelio McClure, the half breed negro,
charged with the brutal double mur
der of two sheep men last summer,
was not set for trial at this term.
The following are the cases anj
the dates they are set for trial at the
next term of court :

RECEIVES MORTAL WOUND IN
ABDOMEN FROM GUN IN THE
HAND OF A YOUNG BUCK, AND
DEATH CREATES MUCH EXCITEMENT.
There is much weeping and wailing
in the I'icuiis Indian pueblo in '1 aos
county. On Monday, during the an
nual fiesta in the pudiio, and while
a great deal of indiscriminate shoot
ing of lire anus was being indulged in,

was accidentally slmt in the abdomen
by Antonio Marline, a young buck,
and a graduate of the Calislu Indian
school, of Carlisle, l'a. The wound
caused almost instant death.
Immediately the rejoicing was turn
ed into mournjng, and the deah of
the medicine man caused great ex
citement That the shooting was
purely accidental, there seeing little
doubt, as the Picuris are a peaceable
people and there was no drunkenness
at the fiesta. A jieculiar ccincldei.ee

Arguments on Motion to Continue
Following the call of the criminal
docket this morning, and the setting
of cases by Judge Abbott for the next
term of court. Attorneys W. B. Chll
ders, K. W. Dobson. and A. B. McMil
lne, counsel for Thomas S. Hubbell,
who is fighting for the office of sheriff
of Bernalillo county, began arguments
In the motion filed with the court sev
eral days ago in which the counsel for
Hubbell ask the court to allow them
to prosecute quo warranto' proceed
ings against Ferfecto Armijo despite
the decision of Attorney (ieneral
(ieorge W. Pricbard.
It will be remembered that the at
torney general first granted Hubbell
permission to proceed in quo warranto
against Armijo in the name of the
territory, but later changed his mind
and withdrew this permission, unless
all three of the removed officials,
namely, T. S. Hubbell, late sheriff;
F. A. Hubbell, late treasurer, and Ks
lavlo. Vigil, late superintendent of
county schools, Jointly brought such,
proceedings against the present in
cumbents of the offices to try the
title to the same. The arguments will
probably occupy several days and a
decision In the matter is not' expected
for some time. Attorney Neill B. Field
appears for Armijo In the arguments
on the motion now before Judge Ab
bott. Mrs. E. K. Norris Gets Divorce
From Her Husband.
Judge Abbott this afternoon granted
Mrs. K. K. Norris a divorce from her
husband on the grounds of non-support
and cruelty. It will be remeber
e,l that Norris only recently made an
unsuccessful nttempt at suicide by
cutting his throat with a razor. Mrs.
Norris conducts a lunch wagon for a
living and is a hard-working woman.
Norris did not appear In court.
K. Wylder, as both meti were terribly
injured, their skulls having been
crushed and their bodies one mass of
cuts and bruises.
Birth men were unconscious from
the time they were picked up at the
bottom of the canyon until death re
lieved them of their sufferings. Rogers
expired at 11 o'clock last night and
Phelps died this morning at o'clock.
That the men lived as long as they
did is nothing short of marvelous as
their injuries were enough to have
caused instant death.
The bodies have been taken in
charge by O. W. Strong's Sons, under
takers, who have embalmed the re
mains and are holding them pending
instructions from relatives. Rogers
leaven a family at Sulphur Springs,
in the Jemez country and they have
been notified of his death.
Little was at first known of Phelps,
as he was a "floater" and blew into
the construction camp several weeks
ago and went lo work, but it is now
ascertained that he was the son of
wealthy people of Montague, Mich.,
and had run away from home. His
parents have been notified by tele
graph of his death and it is very
probable that his body will be shipped
honM for burial.
Is often as great as woman's. But
Thos. S. Austin, Mgr. of the "Repub
lican," of Leavenworth, lnd., was not
unreasonable, when he refused to
allow the doctors to operate on his
wife, for female trouble. Instead,
he says, "we concluded to try Electric
Bitters. My wife was then so sick,
she could hardly leave her bed, and
five (5) physicians had failed to re
lieve her. After taking Electric Bit
ters, she was perfectly cured, and can
now perform all her household du
ties." Guaranteed by all druggists
