A special meeting of the city council was held Wednesday even
ing for the purpose of providing; for a city election. There were pres
ent Councilmen A. C. Torres, A. C. Abeytia, C. Cortinas, R. Lopez,
and F. Hallemos. There were absent Councilmen W. (1. llammel,
Abran Abeyta, and August Winkler. In the absence of Mayor M.
Cooney and City Clerk Rob't T. Collins, A. C. Abeytia anil C. B.
Zedillo were chosen president and secretary pro tempore. Un mo
tion of A. C. Torres the following resolutions were read and adopt
Whereas, The Mayor, the Clerk, and the Citv Council of the
City of Socorro, New Mexico, have each and all failed to issue and
publish a proclamation calling for an election for city officers in
and for said City to be held on the first Tuesday, being the 7th day,
of April, A. D. l'03, according to law, and have wholly failed to
duly and properly appoint a board of registration and judges of
election for the said election; and
Whereas, It is the sense of this Council that the reason for not
complying with the law in such case made and provided is that
they were not certain as to their duties, owing to the fact that
some alterations were being made by the 35th Legislative Assem
bly of the Territory of New Mexico lately in session at the Capital
of this Territory; and
Whereas, It is the sense ot this Council that according to law,
notwithstanding the alterations, if any, made to existing laws, the
people, the legal voters of the City of Socorro, New Mexico, are en
titled to and it is their right to have a general city electiou upon
the day and date aforesaid and that it is likewise the duty of the
present city officers to provide the legal means of properly holding
and conducting the same; and
Whereas, The present acting Mayor of the City, Hon. M.
Cooney, is now absent from said City of Socorro; and
Whereas, It appears doubtful whether this Council can legally
t this late date appoint a board of registration and judges of elec-
ion for the purpose of holding and conducting said general City
lection aloresaid, it is the sense of this Council that the right
evolves upon the legal and qualified voters within the respective
wards of the city to appoint or select their respective judges of
lection and therein proceed according to law; and
Whereas, As aforesaid, this Council, in the absence ot the
Mayor as aforesaid, and in view of all and singular the facts,
reasons and opinion aforesaid, deems it its duty even now to issue
a proclamation calling for the holding of an election as aforesaid,
and naming and designating the places where the same shall be
held in the several wards of said City, subject, however, to the will
of a majority of the legal voters being assembled upon the opening
of the polls at the places thus designated; and this Council being
desirous of complying with their duties as provided by law; now
therefore, be it
Resolved, By the Council of the City of Socorro, New Mexico,
that a general City election for Citv Mayor, City Clerk, City Treas
urer, one member of the City Council from each ward, one member
of the Board of Education from each ward, all city officers of said,

according to law, be and the same is hereby called to be held on

of said City, said election to commence and close upon said day as pro
vided by law, and the city officers above named to be voted for within
said City and for and withim each ward of said City as provided by
law; said election to be held within each ward at the following places,
unless otherwise determined by a majority of of the legal voters
present at such places at the opening of the polls, to-wit:

The meeting than adjourned.
A meeting of prominent citizens was held last night for the
purpose of providing for a mass convention to nominate candidates
for city officers. Attorney Jas. (J. Fitch was chosen chairman of
the me'etinc. In a brief address Mr. Fitch declared that Socorro
sadly needed improvement in its government, that taxes had been
collected and nobody knew where the money. was, that interest on
the rity bonds had not been paid, that the streets were in a bad con-
.... ... . - . i .11. . i
dition, and that he was ready to support capable anu nonesi candi
dates for city offices reirardless of political considerations. J. A.
Smiley was chosen secretary and J. J. Trujillo interpreter.
On motion of José E. Torres it was decided to nominate a city
ticket to be known as a People s Ticket.
A. C. Abeytia moved that the secretary be instructed to issue a
call to the citizens of Socorro to attend a mass convention in the
court house this, Saturday, evening at 7:30 o'clock for the purpose
of nominating candidates for city offices. 1 he motion prevailed.
On motion of J. J. Trujillo an advisory committee was appointed

A committee was appointed to
call upon the city authorities to
ask that new screws be put into
the plugs, for the reason that
the heads of some of the screws
have become so badly worn, pre
sumably by people resorting to
the plugs for irrigating, that the
wrenches will not operate.
At the close of the business
of the evening, Judge Green
regaled the members of the com
pany with a fine lunch and sent
everybody home happy.
School of Ml urn Complimented.
Those who looked after the in
terests of the New Mexico
School of Mines at Socorro were
too smart to be caught napping.
They were not caught by the
able financiers and members of
the finance committee of the leg
islative Council in accepting of-

ters to make loans to mat insti
tution from the sinking funds of
the territory. They said they
would be better pleased with the
regular levy for the aid and
maintenance of that institution
and in that course they were
very wise. This in view of the
fact that Territorial Treasurer
J. II. Vaughn will not pay the
sums appropriated or misappro
priated from the sinking fund
for the several territorial institu
tions as provided in the appropri
ation law unless under a man
damus by the courts, shows that
the heaUs of the Socorro men are
very level and that they are far

not weaken the system, but act
as a tonic to the tissues by arous

the liver to the full performance
of its functions naturally. A.
