Santa Fe, August 1. (Special.)
The interest which has been maul
tested in the successor to A. M. Her
gere. clerk of the first Judicial dis
trlct court, was rewarded today by
the anouncement of the appointment
of Francis C. Wilson, formerly a clerk
in the department of commerce aict
labor at Washington.
Wilson is here but will not take
office until August 10th.
He is about thirty years of age, a
graduate of Harvard university and
the Columbia law school. He is mar
ried and expects to bring his wife to
Santa. Fe in the near future.
Mr. Wilson formerly lived in Bos
ton, Massachusetts, and is the son of
a retired attorney there.
E. P. Holcomb, who is acting ns
clerk, will remain in chargo until
Mr. Wilson takes charge.
Jury Drawing Will Wait.
The Jury venires for the fall term
of the district court have not been
drawn and It Is announced that they
will not be drawn until Mr. Wilson
takes formal charge of the office.
Indictments in Iuid Deals.

that special land officers and other

matters of a like nature.
Oilier Hemovals Humoral.
The usual amount of rumors are
afloat here today. Among the latest
are that several Judges of district
courts are slated for removal as well
as their clerks.
These rumors, like many others
can not ibe traced further than street
talk. Another report is that E. 1.
Gordon Is known as an indictment
expert" and that he has been sent to
New Mexico for the sole purpose of
drawing up the indictments for the
I SiHviul Agents' Counsel.
Mr. Gordon, it is also said, will be
he man "behind the gun," In all le
gal proceedings which the special of
ficers may consider advisable and that
in other words, he is the chief coun
sel for the special agents. This role
heretofore had been assigned by ru
mor to Mr. McIIarg.
The amusing part of the whole
matter Is that those who have here
tofore assumed the "I told you so"
air. appear to watch proceedings with
considerable uneasiness akin to fear.
It Is said that a large amount of
documentary evidence is being com
piled from day to day by ppeclal of

Gordon for their consideration.
The nature of this evidence, If the

Commercial Club In com
nlcatlon With Concern
to Secure Big
GOOD PROSPECT FOR
Proposed Plants Will be Large
and Well Worth Going After
President Brooks Optimistic
.Albuquerque may yet have a big
smelter, notwithstanding the fact thai
the Trl-Uulltun Mining company has
decided to locate Its plant at Canon
City, Colo. In fact, while the land
is practically In condition lor pur
chase for a site for this company's
smelter and the fueX transportation
and other problems had been settled
In favor ot the company, the lead
ers In the movement to secure the
smelter are not feeling at all badly
over the change In location. Two
other propositions, both for smelters
much larger than the Trl-Uuliion
plant, have been attracted by the of
fer of Albuquerque to the Tri-Uul-liun
company, and It is believed that
one of these companies will locate au
immense plant here.
.Leading business men today state
that negotiations which have beeu
under way for some days, will now
be pushed to a conclusion and that
Albuquerque will have a smeller
within a short time.
George ti. Brooks, president of the
Commercial club, stated today;
"When we first 'began negotatlng
with Mr. Traylor. of the Tri-Builiou
company, the proposition was that
he would erect a smelter with a ca
pacity of liuu tons a day. but of late
he was merely considering a fifty-
ton iplant, that is to start wltn. Con
sidering the fact that he was able to
acquire a plant which cost a million
dollars for a song at Canon City it
is not to Ibe wondered at that his
company finally decided to locate at
that place. Yet it seems strange that
the company would deem It aavia-
able to establish its plant so far from
lis base of ore supplies which is th
Kelly district of New Mexico.
"A smelter In this country cannot
run in opposition to the smeller
trust if It must depend upon custom
trade. The plant taken over by the
Tri-iSulllon company at Canon City
had to cease operations by reason of
the competition of the smelter trust
which cut Its smelter charges in that
vicinity until the rival works were
compelled to go out of business.
Thus this big plant became practical
ly worthless and was bought for a
very low price by the 'Iri-JJUlllon
company. 1 venture to state that a
well equipped smeller established in
Albuquerque could handle Traylor'
ore from the company's mine south
of here cheaper than he can handle
them himself after paying the cost
of transportation to Canon City.
"The people of Albuquerque have
worked hard for a smelter; the busi
ness men have contributed generous
ly to provide a site and no end of
effort has been made toward guaran
teeing the necessary supply of slack
and coal at reasonable price for ths
smelter people. Moreover, most ad
vantageous rates were promised by
the railroads, both for ore and fuel
shipments. Naturally none of these
advantages are lost and they can still
be taken advantage of by other con
cerns that may locate here. This city
is now in a position to offer better
inducements to a smelter company
than ever before and we do Jiol en
tertain any doubt that a big smelter
can find it worth while to come here.
So we do not feel that the work we
have done has been in vain. In faot
two large firms are at present nego
tiating in regard to establishing big
plants here and both of these are
considering bigger 'propositions, by
far, than the Traylor proposition."

INDIAN WOMAN GUARDS
Government Would Sell Cem
etery But She Watches
WILL NOT PERMIT
REMOVAL OF BODIES
Kansas City, Kan., August 1. In
order to protect the grave of her
mother and to keep the government
from despoiling it, Miss Lyda Con
ley, the only Indian woman lawyer
In the country, has erected a cot
tage In the center of Huron ceme
tery here, and with a shotgun will
drive off those who attempt to take
possession of the property. Uncle
Sam has undertaken to sell the prop
erty which is the last resting place
of the old and famous tribe of Wyan
dot Indians which once occupied the
w hole state of Ohio, and which was
driven slowly westward, making its
last stand In Kansas.
The government ,at the request of
the city authorities, has had a com
mission appointed to dispose of the
property. Miss Conley sought to pre
vent this in the federal circuit court,
but she has been ruled against, and
it was the ruling that caused her to
prepare to guard her mother's grave
when the time comes. She says no
one shall move the bodies ot her
loved ones from their resting place
so long as she is able to lift a hand
She I si an Attomev.
Miss Conley has many of the pop
ular attributes of the Indian. It is
her boast that illness is a stranger to
her, merely by reason of the fact that
she instinctively obeys the Indian
rules of health. She can work for
days without food and yet without
feeling fatigue. In fact, her whole
time is spent in & manner that would
put a girl less hardy out of the run
ning in a very short time. From
early morning until late at night she
is busy with her practice, besides
reading authorities to sustain her
contention regarding Indian rights In
the federal court. She has been a
practicing attorney for five years.

the ground in order to frighten them.
The shot, however, had the opposite
effect. One of the two stopped and

Her preliminary hearing will be
held at San Antonio, before the Jus

it is the general belief of her neigh
bors and friends that she will be
cleared of the charge of murdering
the boy, as it Is almost certain that
she can clearly show the Justice that
the boy was trespassing on her prop

come to harm her daughter, at whose
window some of the party he waa a
member of, had tapped several times
Just prior to the shooting. She also
expects to show that she had prcr

that they must keep away from tne

Should the Justice at San Antonio
