Albuquerque thus far has Buffered
from the telegraphers' strike princip

almost complete suspension of tele
graph business. Thus far only one
man, an operator at the Western
L'nion office, who cult Saturday night
when the general strike order was re
ceived hei e, has joined the ranks of
the strikers, but it Is believed that
the Postal forces will go out If they
are ordered to do go, though no
statement to that effect, or In fact to
aji y other effect except that his force
Is all at work, can be obtained from
the manager. He says business Is

fact that so many large cities are un
able to handle business because of
The fact that the Postal and West
e-rn Union operators are out In many
cities all over the country Is making
business slow, and all messages are
taken "subject to delay."
The Associated Press situation Is
unimproved and It is almost Impos
sible to give more than an abbreviat
ed report, as the association is not
able to get Its matter over the wire,
Newspapers all over the world are
affected by this strike.
The government is not yet In a
position to interfere and suggest, ar
bitration, ibut unless the two parlies
to the strike reach an agreement In
a very few days, there Is little doubt
that President Roosevelt will take a
hand in the game. Already govern
mental business Is sadly crippled.

New York, August 12. The Postal

Chicago, III., August 12. Both the
Western Union and the Postal com

claim that neither company has one

Examination Proves That
Moses Lewis Killed His
Partner With a
Admits That He Fired Load Into
Neck and Throat of Victim
and That His First
5tory Was Not
Roswell, N. M August 12. The
alleged confession of Moses I Lewis,
made at the county Jail here last
weak, that he haa murdered Leland
S. Terhune, his cousin and partner
In a farming enterprise near here,
by striking the latter over the head
with a spade as a result of a quarrel
occasioned by Terhune s having ac
cused Lewis of thinking too much
of young Mrs. Terhune, was literal
ly "shot to pieces" when Dr. C. M.
Mayes, after an examination of Ter
hune's body, which was found burled
in an Irrigation ditch on his farm
after a long search, declared that
the man had died from a gunshot
wound In his neck, Inflicted at ao
close range tnat the skin was powder
burned. When confronted with the
details of this examination, Lewis
"reconfessed," and admitted slipping
up to Terhuno and shooting him
His First Story.
Lewis made his confession last
week only when Mrs. Terhune aged
22, and 12 years his junior. was
brought into his cell, handcuffed and
in tears, begging him to confess and
free her from the charge. He broke
down then and said he had killed
Terhune with a spade. He gave a
story that excited some pity in his
behalf, owing to his alleged chivalr
ous action In defending Mrs. Terhune
from even her husband's slanders,
but the whole story la now known
to be false una It Is apparent that
he killed Terhune In order to attempt
to win the widow's affections. She
has been released from all blame in
Held Without Iloivl.
The coroner's Jury has ordered
Lewis held without bond for killing
Terhune with a shot gun.
Lewis Is apparently beside him
self and he refuses now to divulge
anything further than his second
confession that he did kill Terhune
as Dr. Mayes has said. He fails to
Impress the officers that he killed
the man during a quarrel, as they
believe he slipped up to the victim
without giving him any warning, and
shot him down. There may have
been a quarrel but the officers do
not believe there was any such trou
ble. Hotli Well Mkiil.
At the Inquest it was brought out
that Terhune had been arrested six
weeks ago on a minor charge, but
the justice who Issued the warrant
Immediately, explained to the jury
that It had been a mistake and that
Terhune was Immediately exonerat
ed. After the killing, from blood spots
on the wagow used by the two men.
It is apparent that Terhune was
hauled to the Irrigation ditch,
through which no water was then
running, and his body dumped in
and burled. Hut for an unusually

Jury at Estancla Finds Him
Not Guilty of Killing
JURORS DEBATED " "X
Defendant Was Strongest Witness
For Himself, and He Absolutely
Denied AH of Prosecution's
Main Points Against
Kstancia, N. M.t August 12. (Spe
elul) "Not guilty" Is the verdict re
turned by the jury which sat In the
case of Domingo Valles, charged with
the killing of Col. J. Francisco Chav
es. This not unexpected verdict
came late Saturday night, after a de
liberation of twelve hours, during
which time, it is reported on the
streets, numerous ballots were taken
but never was the Jury more than
evenly divided. Twice the ballot box
showed a division of opinion six to
six, then the forces for acquittal be
gan to gain ground. The deciding
ballot came at the twelfth hour. It
was just 12 o'clock, midnight, when
Jpdge Kdward A. Mann was arous
ed from his bed to receive the ver
dict. Present In the court room were
but a few midnight stragglers, the
attorneys In the case, the defendant
and his family. All through the
tedious trial, the wife und children
of the defendant had been present at
both night and day sessions and list
ened to the evidence.
Judge Mann then adjourned court
for want of funds, he having pre
viously dismissed all the jurymen
not sitting in the trial of Valles.
The beirlnninir of the afternoon
session on Friday, the fifth' day of
the trial of Domingo valles, round
the defense In the midst of its case.
Five witnesses were examined dur
ing the forenoon. Each of .hese flv
were strong witnesses for the de
fense toward proving an alibi for
the defendant, and none of them
could be shaken from their original
testimony. - f
The first witness the defense in
troduced at the afternoon session
was E. Sebedra. This witness gave
testimony tending to establish the
whereabouts of Jose Sedlllo on the
night of the 26th of November an
also tending to establish the location
of the land marks, which served as
a stage for the drama enacted by
the people living In the vicinity of
the scene of the killing.
The evident purpose of the defense
nt that time was to show If possible,
that It would be Impossible for a
person to leave the home of Valles
after the time Valles was seen there
and reach Finos Wells by the time
of the killing.
Severul relief maps were drawn by
the witnesses for the defense show
ing two roads from the ranches of
the Lueras to Pinos Wells. And also
a route which led through a gap in
the mountains. The territory con
tended that this trail through the
mountains was the route taken by
Valles In going to Finos Wells the
night of the murder. On cross ex
amination District Attorney Clancy
asked the sterotype question: "What
relation ure you to the Lueras?"
i All of the first six witnesses were
one relation or another to either the
Lueras or the Sedillos. -
The seventh witness for the terri
tory was George Lathrop, of Santa
Ke county, who testified that he slept

and had the appearance of having

alien Takes Stand.
The next witness was Domingo
Valles, the defendant.
The temerity of Larrazolo In this
move was not miscalculated. Valles
was a good witness.
The court took a thirty minutes
recess, during which time the coun
sel for the defense sought an inter
view with his client.
Valles swore that he never had
any trouble with Colonel Chaves:
that he had never asked for the col
onel while visiting at Frogreso pre
vious to the murder; that he slept In
his room the night of the murder
