Can Money Dcrhcd from Sale of Land
(rallied for S;eellli' PurpiMo ltu
Used for (Jencrul Purpose ?
The 35th general assembly au
thorized in the general appro
priation bill the loaning ol cer
taiu sums of money to certain
territorial institutions on condi
tion that these loans should be
repaid out of the proceeds of the
sales oí public lands belonging
to the respective institutions.
Territorial Treasurer Vaughn
has raised an interesting legal
question in regard to these loans.
The lands were given to the ter
ritory by the United States gov
ernment to be allotted to certain
institutions for specific purposes.
Mr. Vaughn does not believe
that the pi'Keeds of the sale of
those lands can be used to repay
a loan of money which is used
for any other purposes than those
specified in the act granting the
lands. The appropriation bill
passed by the late territorial
legislature authorized the loans
rcierred to for other purposes.
Treasurer Vaughn has sub
mitted the question of the legal
ity of these proposed loans to the
court and refuses to allow the
money thus appropriated to be
drawn upon until the court has
rendered its decision. This
action is proving disappoinsing
to some of the educational insti
tutions of the territory, as they
are already clamoring for the
loans authorized by the legis
lature. Fortunately for the School of
Mines, the institution is not af
fected by this action of the terri
torial treasurer. It was proposed
to authorize a loan to the School
of Mines on the same terms as to
the other educational institu
tions ; but Doctor Keyes, who had
charge of the interests of the
School before the legislature,
knew that there was already a
considerable sum of money in the
territorial treasury to the credit
of the institution from the sale
and lease of its lands. He saw
no reason why the institution
should borrow its own money and
then still further complicate its
affairs by complying with a
questionable legislative act.
Doctor Keyes therefore expressed
his preference for an increased
tax levy for the School of Mines
and received it.

The Chieftain has it on ex
cellent authority that the Rock
Island Railway Company will
immediately put a corps of en
gineers at work to survey an ex
tension from some point on the
company's road in eastern New
Mexico through Socorro and on
toward San Diego. This is
simply a part of an enterprise
which if carried out will give
the Rock Island the shortest and
otherwise most economical trans
continental line possible in the
This very move on the part of
the Rock Island has been dream
ed of and talked of and has
seemed inevitable to certain citi
zens of Socorro for many years.
The result of the building of
such a line will be to restore to
Socorro her lost glory and make
her again one of the very best
towns in New Mexico.
But this is not all. From the
same authority comes the state
ment that the Santa Fe, in an
ticipation of the Rock Island's
enterprise, will at once enter
upon the work of extending its
Magdalena branch westward.
This extension will open a coun
try that is rich in many re
sources. Of course a railroad is not
built until it is built, but the
readers of the Chieftain may rely
upon it that at least the au
thority for the above statements
is excellent tnougn tnat au

Lat Sad Kites Sunday In Honor of a
A large number of relatives,
friends, and acquaintances gath
ered at the Presbyterian church
in this city Sunday to pay a last
tribute to the memory of James
C. Baldwin. Rev. C. F. Taylor
delivered an eloquent and impres
sive funeral sermon, which was
followed by the Masonic church
service. At the grave the beau
tiful Masonic burial service was
impressively conducted by
Worshipful Master Geo. E. Cook.
Mr. Baldwin was a Mason of
high rank. The thirty-second
degree of Scottish Rite Masonry
was conferred upon him on the
top of Pike's Peak a few years
The accident winch resulted in
the death of Mr. Baldwin occur
red as follows: On Friday after
noon, March 20, at a point 4
miles south of Englc he went
down into a well that was being
dug to inspect the work. As he
was drawn to the top of the well
the rope by some strange fatality
became loosened and he fell 45
feet to the bottom, receiving in
ternal injuries from which he
died in a few hours. A special
train was dispatched to San Mar
cial for medical aid, but the phy
sician's skill was of no avail.
Deceased was a respected mem
ber of a respected family, the
eldest sen of L. Baldwin of
Englc. He was a good citizen
and a most devoted husband.
He was married about 11 years
ago to Miss Annie Hilliard. No
children were born of the union.
James C. Baldwin has passed to
the great beyond but the in
fluence of his life remains for

An Indlun Mummy.
It is reported that a well pre
served mummy of an Indian of
huge stature was recently found
in a cave near Tularosa, fifty
miles west of Magdalena. With
the mummy were found a bow
and some ancient pottery. The
body was pierced through the
shoulder and back with two ar
rows. A soap-weed moccasin in
a good state of preservation cov
ered one foot, and the scalp was
missing. The relic is said to be
now on exhibition in Albuquerque.

it comes to Witch Hazle Salve.

For blind, bleeding, itching and
protruding piles, eczema, cuts,
burns, bruises and all skin dis

numerous worthless counterfeits.

IlrrnuIIIlo Count)' Two Assessor.
J. M. Sandoval was elected"
assessor of Bernalillo county last
fall. Since the division of the
county by act of legislature he
still claims to be a resident of
Bernalillo county, and doesn't
quite understand how he can be
legislated out of an office to
which he was duly elected. In
accordance with certain pro
visions of the act dividing the
county, however, the county com
missioners have appointed Geo.
F. Albright assessor. Mr. San
doval will call upon the courts to
decide whether he is entitled to
the office or not.
