VICTIM OF STABBING AFFRAY DEAD
Young Salztree, Stabbed by A. M.
Price, Dies of Peritonitis.
The young Boer teamster, who
was stabbed bv A. M. Price, a
cow boy, in a bawuv nouse at
Magdalena on the 3rd inst. died
at that place Monday night of
peritonitis. The wounded man
was doing nicely and seemed to
be recovering from the effects of
the cut under the care of his
attending physician, Dr. Edwin
Swisher, with no apparent chance
of complications, when the latter
had an urgent call from out west,
to see a patient, and lor whom
the wounded man was perfectly
willing the doctor should leave
him. And on Dr. Swisher s re
turn on Tuesday from a hundred
miles in the western part of the
county, found that peritonitis
had set in, and from which Salz
tree had died Monday night.

given on the vacant lot north of !
Attorney Jas. d. v itch s office on
the 28th or 2(Uh of the present
month. There will be a great
variety of attractions offered,
among which will be some in a
circus tent, some in a Japanese
tent, some in a music hall, and
many others the nature of which
can not now be described. The
admission to each of these at
traction will bé 10 cents and a
generous revenue is anticipated.
Conductor P. J. Savage took
an extra coach up to Magdalena
yesterday morning expecting to
attach it to his train down this
morning for the accommodation
of those who might want to
come to the circus. There was
such a demand for passage down
yesterday, however, that it was
necessary to bring the extra
coach back on the return trip,
and both ' nat and the regular
coach were crowded. The extra
coach went up again' this morn
ing and returned well filled.

to make sure of its calculations,
it submitted the entire report to
Robert Dross, an expert account-
ant of standing and reputation, i
who has no interest in politics or .
penitentiary matters one way or
the other. The conclusions of
Mr. Dross are interesting, even if
they only show how figures can
be made to tell anything by an
expert and how even experts may
differ over the same matter. Savs
As requested by you in your i
litter of yesterday's date, I have
waded carefully through the
rather lengthy report published
in the Morning Journal of Mon
day, the 2d instant, in the New
Mexico penitentiary under 11. U.
Bursum's administration, but as
I have never seen the books my
self, it is somewhat difficult, nay
almost impossible to follow the
different items intelligently, as
no doubt a good many of them,
if not all, could easily be explain
ed bv Mr. Bursum. The whole
report has the blush of venom
plainly stamped on its face, and
my experience in the profession
has demonstrated the fact that
there is hardly a set of books in
the world but what an expert
determined to find something
suspicious, would not succeed.
That the books were not kept in
a strictly business like method is
evidenced by the fact that Mr.
Bursum found it necessary or
advisable to pay the sum of $1,727
into the treasury after his con
nection with the institution had
ceased. But it strikes me for
cibly that it is almost impossible
and certainly incredible for such
a vast amount of discrepancies
to exist and for such a length of
time, as a sane commission would
have put a stop to such lax book
keeping as charged within a very
short time and would have in
sisted on a business like method.
"Your deduction, as a resume
of the report showing an over
payment on the part of Mr. Bur
sum of $543.11, is in so far correct
as it certainly tallies with the
figures given in the report. You
ought to have said $6,670.75,
'cash in the treasury,' instead of
'turned in cash.' You will, how
ever, have to take into account
the expert's remarks on the item
of total disbursements, $453,618.
05, i. e., including those by
vouchers and by methods contrary
to statutes, which no doubt Mr.
Bursum and the commissioners
would and certainly should be
able to satisfactorily explain."
Is Bursum HonestP
"All of the republican papers
of the territory and nearly
the democratic papers have de
clared their belief in the honesty
and high purpose of Hon. Harry
O. Bursum," says the Las Vegas

It is now known that the Boer
who was stabbed in a Magdalena
resort a few days ago was a
young man named Salztree, a
sheep harder, and that the man
who did the deed was A. M.
Price, a cowboy. Since Salztree's
death Price has jumped his bond
and Sheriff Baca is offering a re
ward of $50 for his capture.
