tion met in this city today and

The real business of the con
vention was not entered upon
until a late hour this evening.
Once undertaken, however, it
was done well enough to satisfy
the most exacting republican and
to chill the most enthusiastic
democrat, as will be seen from
the ticket nominated as follows:
KKPl'BI.ICAN COrXTY TICKKT.
For Councilman - Hon. V. E.
Martin of Socorro.
For Representative Hon. II.
II. Howard of San Marcial.

For County Commissioner for
the Third District-Alfredo Ar

For Probate Judge -Henry
Dreyfus of Socorro.
For Surveyor- H. L. Hrown of
For Coroner Tomas Her
nandez of Socorro.
Several noteworthy speeciies
were made placing the various
candidates before the convention.
Attorney Elfego Haca was very
happv in proposing the name of
Hon. W. K. Martin for council
man and very effective in projios
ing the name of Eduardo Jara-
millo for commissioner. In tin
latter instance Mr. Haca took oc
casion to score the present county
commissioners very severely for
alleged bad conduct in collecting
taxes and in not giving the re
publican party of the county
legal representation as clerks of
registration and judges of elec
tion. Hon. H. O. Hursum named
Henry Dreyfus for Probate
Judge as "the best of the whole
bunch" and H. L. Hrown for Sur
veyor as "the best surveyor and
the most enthusiastic republican
in the United States and the can
didate who will get the biggest
majority of all." Pablo Tru-
jillo's effort in behalf of Hon. II
II. Howard and A. A. Sedillo's
in behalf of Domingo Ortega bore
the tone of earnest conviction
All nominations were made by
acclamation, that of Hon. W. E
Martin by a rising vote.
Thus ended the work of one ol
the most harmonious and cnthu

of the county and will win by :

SCHOOL OF MINES NOTES.
Mr. Rue N. Hines of Parral,
Mexico, matriculated this week.
Mr. Hines has been employed for
several years at one of the big
smelters at that jxiint.
Mr. A. H. Richmond, former
student of the School, has been
apixiinted general manager of tin
Gerard Mining Co., which has
large properties in the ' famous
Casa Grande district in Arizona.
The students in assaying were
treated to a four-days lalioratory
exH-rience last week. Owing to
the freight tie-up as the result
of the floods, the work in the
chemical laboratories had to be
suspended all week.
Mr. E. M. Douglas, ehi'f
topographer on the United States
Geological Survey, was an all
day visitor at the School last
Saturday. Mr. Douglas sent
several hours looking over the
geological mapping of New Mex
ico now U-ing rapidly conducted
by Dr. Keves and assistants.
In the Journal of Technology,
published at the State University
of California, are some flattering
comments on the work of tin
New Mexico School of Mines.
Of special interest is the intima
tion of the high position tin
institution is taking among tin
educational institutions of tin
country. During the sojourn of the two
surveying parties from the
Federal Government in and a I tout
Socorro, headquarters will be
made at the School of Mines. In
the triangulation party will be
Mr. R. H. Chapman, Topogra
pher in charge, and also in charge
of the triangulation party.' He
will lie assisted by eight others.
A letter received from Mr.
John A. Hunter, a graduate of
the School of a year ago, and who
is now in tin- chemical depart
ment of the American Smelting
iind Refining Co's plant at Aguas
Calientes, Mexico, stafrs that he
has been promoted rapidly and is
now receiving $25o a month,
Mexican, with the expectation of
mother advance before long.
Under the title of "An Ameri
can Idea, the West Australian
Mining Engineering Journal,
published at Kalgoorlie, Austra
lia, has a two column article on
the New Mexico School of Mines
and its work. The article compli
ments very highly certain features
of the School and holds them up
as something the newly organiz-
il School of Mines of Western
Australia might well copy. High
tribute is paid to American energy
md progress! veness even in
technical school work.
An interesting bit of engineer
ing in connection with work iie
ing begun by the United States
Geological Survey in the Socorro
region is the measuring of a base
line from which will be started
the primary triangulation. The
importance of this work and tin
precision with which the measure
ments must lie made may In
understood when it is stated that
this is the tie-line of the triangula
tion from Colorado ami from
Arizona. The measurements
cover a line miles long ami are
made at night when even
temperatures may In- had. It is
expected that the students will
witness the work on two nights
and some of them will take part.
There is more catarrh in this
section of tU country than all
other diseases put together, and
until the last few years was sup
posed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors prt- .
nounced it a local disease and
prescribed local remedies, and by
constantly failing to cure with
local treatment, pronounced it
incurable. Science has proven
catarrh to In- a constitutional
disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured bv
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo,
Ohio, is the only constitutional
cure on the market. It is taken
internally in doses from 10 drops
to a teaspoonful. It acts directly
on the blood and mucous surfaces
of the system. They oiler one
hundred dollars for any case it
fails to cure. Send for circulars
