Another Fire at the Stock Turds.
Some months ago a fire occurred at the
stock yards, creating considerable excite
ment, but resulting in no terious loss.
Last Wednesday another faro occurred
in Ihe same locality, with a much more
seriont icsulf. to-wit: Thr i extraction of
an ordinary frame stable abo IMiGS feet
in site, the loss of three very fine hordes,
about 2,500 fret ot Inmber and abont
sevcnty.fire buffalo bides (which had
been stowed away in tho stable.) six cords
of dry wand, one barrel of oil and a Dirt
nt tbe plitform and board fences adjoin
ing the stable. Loss, abont $2,000
Up to this time tbe origin of tbe Gre haa
not been ascertained. About twenty five
head of borers, in charge of Mr. Sander
son, of thehrm of Harlow & Sanderson,
of Pueblo, were unloaded from tbe can
at the stock yards, on Wednesday morn
ing, to be fed and watered. Tbe stock
wasle'ng shipped to Colorado. Mewrs.
Wall. McGonigle, Sanderson and twomen
employed at lh yard, were taking care
of the horses, and bad baaled several
bales of bay from town and piled it in
tbe stable. Among the lot of boiars were
two tine bngty animals requiting more
psmcular attention than Ihe rear. These,
witb two others, were placed in the
stable. About 9 o'clocs: Mr. Wall was
called away from the stable, remain
id airay some minulff, and it appears
that during bis absence no one was kiawn
to visit the stable, th other men being
at work in another part ot the yard.
When he returned he found tbe hay on
fire. lie at once tried to smother it out,
but it had gained too much headway. Tbe
alarm was given and in a short time tbe
tire company wcis at tbe scene of the fire.
Thr wind was blowing busily and the
building was completely enveloped in
blax. One of the horses had been res
cued bat ihe otber three positively and
Mabburnly refuted to be either led or
diivtn ftimr the burning building. They
were loosed, and the door was open.
Their neirhs and nickenngs were bean'.
nntil the roof fell in, whrn their bod'
weresoon burned to a crisp For .wo
bouts all hands worked rigorossly to pre
vaiit the fire from spreading, lbe femes,
platform and one of the shoots were loin
down. About noon tbe file was coder
coutrul and the exhausted liie-tiahters
returnrd home. This is Ihe second lime
tho tire eumpany has Ix-en railed npvu in
casnof tire, and the ne:nlurss of the or
ganization is felt by everyone.

From parties direct trotn Ked River,

Amencans and a half-breed American
mexican.on the 20th of January. Tbe

tion of Bed Biver, lbe two men were
stock-owners , aud were supposed to pos
sess about six thousand dollars tn money .
We were unable to leatntbririiames. Tbe

we learn that previous to this murder tbe
Mexican Government had offered a reward

Tbo case of Drtn City vs. James linn

went far towards exciting unusual interest
in tbe cjse. and when court opened there
was not room enough inside for half
