THE DEMAND FOR "OLD MA
UHKATKK THAN LAST SEASON.
MEXICO IS TRYING
Government Plans Hoid-i
Ing Company to Control All
Lines In the Republic.
OBJECT TO THE PLAN
New York, May 1. That the gov
ernment of Mexico is trying to inter
met them out of their property by a
Hyanesque holding company deal, is
the complaint of a committee of
bondholders of the Mexican Central
Hallway company. They are repre
sented by Edward L. Andrews of No.
25 Hroud street, who sent this tele
gram to Senor J. Y. Llmftntour, min
ister of finance of Mexico:
"Holders of 13, 000, 000 of Mexican
Central consolidated Income bonds de
cline to donate their securities for
stock in a holding company.
"In view of your proposition to ne
gotiate for other terms of purchase
ot our property we would consider
the acceptance of fixed interest bonds
for 60 per cent of first incomes and
4 0 per cent of the second incomes.
These Investments are held by hard
headed Englishmen and Americans."
The Mexican government has a plan
on foot to merge all tho railroads of
the republic and control them through
a. $015,000,000 holding company. It
already controJs the Mexican National
railroad and is anxious to bring the
Mexican Central into the combination.
These are the two principal systems in
the republic. The Mexican Central
Haiiway company is a Massachusetts
corporation. Much of its stock is
belli in Germany and through inter
ests controlled by Kuhn, Loeb & Co.,
Iadenburg. Thalman & Co., Speyer
Brothers and Hallgarten & Co.
It has J33.000.00O of first and sec
ond Income bonds, owned chiefly by
American and English investors. No
interest has been paid on these bonds
tor many years, through the manipu
lation of the stockholders, according
to Mr. Andrews. They want to get
the bonds out of the way.
The holding company is to issue
$22i..(lOO.OOO of Vi per cent first
mortgage bonds; $160,00o,0ot 4 per
cent general or second mortgage
bonds; 130,000,000 of first preferred
stock; 125, 000. 000 of second pre
ferred and $75,000,000 ol common
The proposition which the income
bondholders rebel at is that they ex
change their bonds for the holding
company's second preferred stuck on
the basis of dollar for dollar for the
Incomes and $110 for $10 of the first

HEARING INVOLVES THE
Special Insp-cFrom Inter
lor Department Investigates
IS UNDER DISPUTE
Las Cruces, N. M., May 1. A hear
ing has begun before V. M. Tipton,
special Inspector of the Interior de
partment, that Involves over 5,000
acres of -what is known as the Bra
zito grant lying about seven miles
south of Las Cruces, and which de
pendo for settlement upon tho course
of the Hlo Grande in 1854.
The occasion for the hearing is the
request of the owners of the nrazito
tract for a patent on the land con
tained in it. A patent has already
been issued on the territory known
as the Santo Tomas grant.
The case dutes back to tho first sur
veys that were made of the valley as
i arly as 1854. At this time one Ste
venson Archer of Texas made a survey
of this land and the lirazito grant,
as surveyed by him, was confirmed by
Congress in 1860. In 1863 another
survey was made by Leonard M.
Brown, which showed tho river in a
different position. According to the
old plat, the Brazito grant was wholly
to the east of the river, while the
Santo Tomas was on the west side of
the river as It then ran. But it is a
known fact among the early residents
of the valley that the Rio Grando has
changed its course during that time,
and It is even said that at one time
ran between Mesill.i and I .a Cruces.
Evidence will roe introduced by at
torneys for the owners of both grants
in order to show where the river ran
at the time of the j-urvey of 1851, and
a large number of the older residents
of Iis Cruces and the valley will be
examined as to this fact.
Inspector Tipton has been in I.as
Cruces since March 4 at the request
of Secretary Gaifield of the interior
department, under whose direction he
works. He has been making a care

Columbus, Ohio, May 1. The St.

ten miles west of Pittsburg, arrived
here early today. 40 minutes late. The

bullion were taken, but do not know
the value of the property.
The Adams express people here re

Noah H. Itoshon, express messen

him with revolvers. Then they tied
him with ropes brought with them
