STOCK MARKET SLUMPS

Big Rise and Fall In Prices
Caused Great Agita
BEARS HARPED ON
New York. August 7. Bears fell
on the stock market tooth and nail
during the noon hour today and
swept prices down, violently uncov
ering extensive selling orders upon
the way down, and 'buying hastily to
take the protlts before the end of the
hour. As a consequence the slump
was followed by a quick rally. Gen.
eral agitation against the corpora
tlons waa the principal topic harped
on by the sellers of stocks.
After the temporary rally, prices
slumped again and the previous losses
were widely extended under a nood
of liquidation. There waa an usual
scramble among the shorts towards
the end of the session to take the
profits, and some of the weakest
stocks rallied one to 2V4 from the ex
treme low level.

Alleged Slayer of Col. Chaves
Will Attempt to Prove
JUDGE MANN CENSURES
Defendant Watches Jury Closely
and Court Room Is Always
Filled With Curious Audi
tails of Killing.
Estancla, N. M.. August 7. (Sie-
ilal). Domingo Valles is on trial for
tne assassination of Col. J. Francisco
The crime was committed on the
evening of November 26, 1904, and
was one of the most dramatic trag
edies recorded In the criminal annals
of New Mexico, The victim was one
of the leading public spirits of the
territory and a martyr to the cause
of good government. It Is believed
that he was killed by an enemy
whose vocation had been unlawful
and who had suffered from lawful
prosecution Invoked through the ef
forts of Colonel Chaves.
Following clues which would have
been prompted by such a motive, the
territory believes that It has wound a
net of clmcumstantial evidence
around Domingo Valles that will
bring him severe punishment.
Court ltooni Smu
Judge Edward A. Mann Is presid
ing. The session Is being held be
tween four adobe walls, 40x25 feet.
These walls are covered by a loft.
which In turn Is shaded by a cone
roof of pine boards. Exposed pine
rarters, supporting the lort, are but
three feet above the court's head. I
The Judge's bench Is a rostrum of
pine boards twelve Inches above the
floor. Judge Mann a desk has a
surface about equal to the top of a
sewing machine. The bench occupies
the west end of the room and faces
east. The Jury box has two rows of
straight back chairs of various shapes
and sixes on the -right hand of the
court. The court reporter leans over
a table about the sixe of the Judge's
desk, covered with white oil cloth,
placed directly In front of the Jury
The counsel for both the territory
and the defense sit at an oblong
table toward the east side of the
room. The defendant sits beside his
attorney, O. A. Larrazolo. The bulky
form of Captain Fred Fornoff, of the
territorial mounted police, occupies a
cnnsplclnus position at the east end
of this table, close to the. prosecuting
attorney, F. W. Clancy, and near Mr.
Fornoff, is George W. Armijo, a
grandson of Col. Chaves, who Is tak
ing an active Interest In the prosecu
tion of the case. The clerk of the
court occupies a high stool at a desk
placed along the north wall of tne
court room. The remainder of the
court room Is tilled with chairs and
Improvised seats made of nail kegs
and kerosene cans, and every avail
able space is filled with curious,
eager spectators. A number of wo
men are present at every session.
Two open doors, one at each end of
the buildings and two deep set win

The securing of a jury began Mon
day morning, at the close of the Jap
Clark case, but not until 10 o'clock
Tuesday morning, after a day and a
night session, and the exhaustion of
two special Jury venires, was the pan
el completed. Iiut one English speak
ing person was retained on the Jury,
though many were summoned and
qualitied. It was apparent through
the entire selection of the Jury that
the attorney for the defense, Hon. O,
A. Iarrazolo, hopes to win at least
a lenient verdict from the Jury
through race prejudice. Fully ten
English wpeaklng merchants and far
mers of the valley, many of them
having come from the states since the
assassination of Colonel Chaves, were
excused by the attorney for the de
fense. The territory exercised all of
its challenges early and from that
time on the defense had easy sailing
The Jury Is as follows:
Benito Garcia, Nicolas Baca, Pedro

Colorado Springs, Colo., August J.
The Golden Cycle Mining and
Milling company' huge plant at
Colorado City Is a mass of flames and

district. Over 300 men were employ

The Are originated In the roasting
rooms and rapidly spread to the oth
er buildings, which cover an area of
ten acres. Lack of water and inade
quate tire fighting facilities made the
work of the tirmen very difficult,
and It was only by heroic work tnat
the flames were finally brought under
control after three-fourths of the
plant had been destroyed. Thirty
seven freight cars standing on a aid

sumed. Old Tcllurlde Mill.
The plant was formerly known as
the Tellurlde mills, owned by New

In the mill men's strike, which ter

The plant was running as usuat

As soon as the blaze waa discovered,
the employes made an Ineffectual ef
