Dr. J. W. Cunningham of Las
Vegas, president, and II. M.
Porter, of Denver, general man
ager of the Red River Cattle
company, owning ranches and
running cattle in Sierra and So
corro counties, were in the city
this morning for a couple of
hours, while en route to their
homes. They were just return
ing from the cattle ranges and an
inspection of their herds. Mr.
Porter said that the ranges,
which were very dry during the
summer, were much improved by
the late rains and the condition
of the cattle is very good on .the
hillsides, and most of the water
holes are full, and the cattle,
what there are left of them, will
go into the winter in very good
On this last statement Mr.
Porter had reference to the herds,
which were very much depleted
by the drought of the summer,
when cattle died by hundreds.
Many of the large concerns did
not round up their cattle at all
this fall because they were too
poor. Mr. Porter estimated that
at least one-half of the cattle on
the New Mexico range when
spring opened died during the
This statement has been made
by other large owners of cattle
and by men pretty well acquaint
ed with existing conditions, and
yet others deny that the loss was
half as great as reported.
Dr. Cunningham is one to deny
this report. In this much he
disagrees with Mr. Porter.1 Dr.
Cunningham says that in a great
many instances cattlemen, who
lost heavily, overrate their losses
in their discouragement. In his
estimation the losses from the
drought this summer were not
nearly as great as reported and
that cattle and men will come
out next spring all right. Dr.
Cunningham is one of the oldest
cattle men of the territory and
keeps pretty well posted on condi
tions. Albuquerque Citizen.

The readers of this paper will
be pleased to learn that there is
at least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure in
all its stages, and that is catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh cure
being a constitutional disease,
requires a constitutional treat
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system, thereby
destroying the foundation of the
disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature
in doing its work. The proprie
tors have so much faith in its
curative powers that they offer
one hundred dollars for any case
that it fails to cure. Send for
list of testimonials.

A PENNSYLVANIA VIEW.
Tha PitUburgr Timea Speaks in High
Terma of Praiao of Senator
W. H. Andrews.
Former State Senator William
II. Andrews, one of the most
well-known republican politicians
in Pennsylvania for many years,
has been elected delegate to con
gress fur the territory of New
Mexico. Two years airo, savs
the Pittsburg (Pa.) Times, he
was elected a territorial senator
there, being the nominee of both
the republican and democratic
parties. Now he achieves highe r
honors. The Times has not al
ways been able in the past to
endorse all that Mr. Andrews did
in a political way, but it sincerely
congratulates him upon his
present victory, and believes that
the people of New Mexico are also
to be congratulated. He is a
thorough niatj'f affairs, in busi
ness as ;y--politics, and his
knowle of public matters and
public men will be of benefit to
the people and interests of his
new home. With several Pitts
burg capitalists he is engaged
in railroad enterprises which will
do much toward developing the
resources of New Mexico. In
congress, while without a vote,
he can accomplish a great deal for
statehood, something which the
people of the territory most
earnestly desire. It is not at all
likely that the republican oartv
of New Mexico has made any
mistake in sending Mr. Andrews

Socorro, New Mexico.
My Dear Sir: Ever since I
have lived in Socorro county, af
ter every election it has been
common gossip that money was
improperly usea 10 lnnuence vot
ers. Since our election this week
the charges are worse than ever.
Our officials, both county and
territorial, irrespective of party,
are accused of openly using
money improperly in this way.
It would seem as if any man
whom the people place in office
would have too much sense, if
not enough honor, to so openly
violate the provisions of Sec.
1662, Compiled Laws of New
Mexico, that his acts become no
torious among the common peo
ple. If the common people see our
laws openly violated by men who
are selected to enforce our laws
and punish crime, what is there
to prevent the people from them
selves violating our laws so that
neither life nor property will be
safe in Socorro county?
I cannot believe that these as
sertions can be true. I think it
is time to stop all such reckless
talk, which is injurious to our
reputations as citizens and,
whether true or not, depreciates
the value of all property in So
corro county. All over this ter
ritory I hear of the political rep
utation of Socorro county as be
ing "rotten," until at times I
have been ashamed to acknowl
edge my residence.
In order to stop this sort of
talk, I hereby offer fifty dollars
for evidence that will secure the
indictment and conviction of any
citizen, irrespective of party,
who may have been guilty of
bribery at the polls at our late
election in this county. I also
offer a similar amount for similar
evidence at any future election
in this county so long as I am a
resident of it.

BURSUM THE RIGHT MAN.
Hearty Endorsement of Chairman
Suraum in Socorro County.
"We of Socorro county are very
well satisfied with the result of
the election," said Max B. Fitch,
a well-known mining man of the
southern county, last night. Mr.
Fitch is on his way east on an
important improvement now
pending on one of his properties
in southern New Mexico.
"I think," he said, "that it has
been proven that Chairman II. O.
Bursum is the right man in the
right place. He says very little,
but he thinks a great deal, and he
does things quickly and well. He
worked pretty hard in Socorro
county just previous to the elec
tion, and the result was very
evident when the returns came
in. Mr. Bursum's word is quite
the equal of his bond in politics
as in business, and he is thorough
ly respected and very jopular in
Socorro county, where he has a
personal acquaintance with every j
man in the county. lie came into
Socorro county the night of elec-
tion looking like a thoroughbred
cowman after a month on the '
range, with mud up to his knees j
and dust caked in his hat. He
was tired, but quietly confident,
and he did not think it worth
while to wire to Santa Fe for the
result until he had been in town
several hours." Albuquerque

The cotton crop in Eddy County
promises to be a record breaker
this year. The damp weather
that has prevailed for the past
month has not injured it in the
least, except to retard its opening
and with a week or two of bright,
warm weather, which would
permit the opening of the bolls,
before freezing weather comes,
the crop will establish beyond
doubt the claims which are made
for the Pecos Valley in regard to
cotton possibilities. The cotton
which is now being baled at the
gin in Carlsbad is being shipped
directly to the Galveston market
and it is said that it exceeds in
quality that grown in Texas.

J. J. Leeaon Talka of New Mexico's
Exhibita at tha World's Fair and
the Oood it Haa Accompliahed.
"New Mexico has indeed a very
interesting display in the mining
space and other buildings at the
St. Louis World's Fair," said J. J.
Leeson, who has just returned
from the World's Fair at St.
Louis, to a New Mexican repres
entative. "Next month the great
est of World's Fairs will close
after six months of a most success
ful engagement. The various
state and territories have revealed
to the world their great wealth
and varied resources and it is but
just and right that honors should
fall where honors are due.
"New Mexico produces the
greatest variety of minerals and
grains of any state or territory in
the Union. Its cereals and fruits
are also equal to any in America.
Its climate and health-giving
qualities have been brought to
the eyes of the world and today
this Territory is one of the best
advertised sections on the globe
and this has resulted principally
through its exhibits.
"This Territory may well be
proud of its advertising and its
honored citizens, who have shown
such energy in bringing this
Territory so prominently before
the world. The New Mexico
building at the World's Fair has
been visited by fully one-half of
the United States Congress and
millions of citizens throughout
the country, who have listened to
the Territorial commissioners as
they showed and explained to
them the varied resources and
told them of the increasing
population, railroads and fac
tories. "I have visited many great
expositions, and can truly say
that the St. Louis World's Fair
exceeds all others and that the
Territory of New Mexico has'
done itself proud."
Sheriff Leandro Baca offers a
reward of $50 for the apprehension
of Claud Barbee, who effected a
very smooth escape from the
county jail last night. Barbee
was accustomed to bring in wood
and water and help about the
kitchen. Last night he took the
key to the woodshed and the key
to the barn and started in line
with the other prisoners to the
cell room. He quietly stepped
out a side door, however, as
though going for wood and that
was the last seen of him. Barbee
is accused of the murder of Ken
neth Hamilton at the Gene
Rhodes ranch 60 miles southeast
of Socorro four years ago. Deputy
Bob Lewis caught him in Douglas,
Arizona, last February and was
holding him in default of bail to
await the action of the next
grand jury. There were no
witnesses and the probability was
that there would be no indict
ment. Deputy Lew3 now has
the lines well out for his re
capture and is almost sure to
bring him home.
