There is no cessation in the shipments
of cattle from this place. Last week
several train loads of cuttle wore shipped
from the stock yards here, and although
it is nour the close of the first week in
July, the shipments for the season are

since the first shipments of cattle from

there ia a protty good prospect that the
stock which will be loft on the ranges
will have plenty of food for the remainder
of the season.
During the past ten days there have boon

getting what they -vented than most
people had any idea they would. With
the votos of six more stutes the free silver
plunk would have had a majority in the
committee on resolutions. This shows
that the cause of free silver is gaining
strength, aud gaining it very rapidly. "
Grant County ought to organize
baseball nine to play at the Territorial
fair at Albuquerque this fall. There are
enough good players in this County to

Silver City nor Doming could organize
nine w hich could beat the Albuquerque
or Iam Vegas nine, but by picking out
the best pluyers from both placea and
taking one from Pinos Altos and one
from Centrul City a nine could be organ
i.ed which would defeat .iiy other in
New Mexico. . The plan is worth oonuld

A very rich body of ore was discovered
in the Sabinal district, in Mexico, re
cently. The ore is found in a series of
caves or chambers, and is a high grade
argentiferous lead ore. There are thou
sands of tons of it in sight. This district
was prospected by a number of prospec
tors from Deming six or seven years ago.
They found rich mineral and did consid
erable work, but they failed to find the
main ore body, and after holding their
claims several months, they abuudoned
them. The mines cannot be worked to
good advantage on account of tho lack
of proper facilities for transportation.
If a railroad should be built south from
Deming it would reduce the cost of
transportation of the ores from the Sabi
nal district very materially.
THE METAL MARKET.
The sharp decline in the price of silver
which followed the Nutional conventions
has been checked, and the market shows
decided upward tendency.. The pas
sage of a free coinage bill by the senate
lost Friday, by a vote of 29 tc 25, and
the probability that it will pass the
house, has encouraged silver men very
much. It is said that if the bill reaches
the President that he will not veto it.
This rather unexpected turn in the sil
ver situation so soon after the holding
of the National convenlions,botb of which
practically declared against the free
coinage of silver on the present basis, is
likely to send the price of silver up rap
idly. The closing quotations in New
York were 83.
The copper market has been firm but
there has been no improvement in price.
A good deal of stock is being carried by
the producers and they are standing firm
on prices. Copper closed at 11.05.
.'ad has improved considerably at
interior points but there has been little
change in New York. This is believed
to be due to the fact that considerable
lead hud accumulated there which was
being worked off at a low rate. The
price ut the end of the week was 4.20.
Uncle Sum is a lively old follow for a
youth of 110.

It ditl not take the cily long to put on
a gala appcnrance and on the arrival of
the special train from Doming it looked
as though Grant County had taken a
holiday to come to Silver City and take
a hand in the celebration.
The streets were tilled with people
when the train arrived at 10:20. It
stopped opposite the Timmer House and
stream of humanity poured out whilo
the band played a lively oir and the eo
ple shouted. The members of the Dom
ing lod;p of Knight of Pythias in full
uniform were among the first out, and
they lost no time in getting into the pro
cession, which had been waiting the nr
rivul of the train. The trades' display
was a very creditable one, and attracted
a great deal ot attention. A novel fea
ture was the Dionster 12 inch gun, which
was fired repeatedly under the direct
supervision of Uncle Sam himself w hile
the procossion was moving through the
Cloveland and Harrison were both rep
resented by handsome young Indies, and
the Methodist Sunday school loaded
down one of the largest wagons in town.
A number of commercial travelers who
heard of the celebration here were pres
ent and marches.! in a body in the pro
cession. They gave three rousing cheers
for Silver City.
Flags lloated everywhere and every
body was bubbling over with patriotism.
Everything except the glorious 4th
seemed to have been forgotten.
After the trades' display scotos of peo
ple who had heard the reading of the
declaration of independence on many
similar occasions gathered and listened
intently to tha randing nfthe document,
which 110 years ago d ocla rod the colonies
froe and disclaimed all allegiance to the
British crown. It was read clearly and
distinctly by D. P. Carr.
This was followed by the oration by
John J. Boll which was one ot the hap
piest efforts of that fluent and ploasing
speaker. It was attentively listened to
by a large audionce.
In the afternoon the streets were lmnd
with people bent on seeing the contests
for prizes. The neighboring towns and
and surrounding country had contributed
their share of humanity for the cele
bration. Before the afternoon exercises com
menced, heavy clouds which bud been
gathering for an hour, begun to spread
over the city, and a iii;lit shower fell which

Hie chances seem to be improving
for the speedy conrtruction of a railroad
from this place to Hanover. The ratos
charged by the Silver City Northern are
practically prohibitory on iron shipped
by others than those interested in the
railroad company. The Pennsylvania
syndicate, which purchased the bsst
mines in the camp last March, is inter
ested in getting low rates on iron and if
satisfactory rates can not be obtained
from the Silver City and Northern Cora
pauy, a new line will be built without
delay. Some interesting developments
may be looked for soon.
