Train robberies are becoming
alarmingly frequent theso days. On
Monday night this week, a train was
held up on tho Frisco road near Glen
dale, by six masked men, and it is
stated secured $75,000 which tho
Adams express company will have to
stand good for. The robbers as usual
. got safely away and no trace of them
has been discovered.
It gives us great pleasure to note tho
improvements lately made in tho Albu
querque. Democrat. Tho whole con
cern has evidently undergone a good
overhauling, nil tho associated news is
published, nud the local happcuings
are not neglected. Tho typographical
appearance has been greatly improved
and it is considerably ahead of tho
field in which it is published, and wo
hopo that it may meet with (he success
its enterprise merits.
Dispatches received from Pekin say
that it is officially announced there
that the recent report of disturbances
in tho Mongolia was grossly exagger
ated. Tho movement, tho dispatches
add, is piuely a local one, and is en
tirely devoid of danger to tho Imperial
government. Notwithstanding the re
ceipt of theso dispatches, it is believed
hero that the revolutionary movement
is of much greater importance than
tho Chinese government would have
tho outside world believe.

The speakership contest is increas
ing in liveliness and interest with each
day. All fivo of tho candidates havo
expressed themselves as hopeful and
report matters progressing satisfactor
ily from their point of view. This is,
in tho caso of tho two leaders, that tho
speakership will bo settled early in tho
caucus and in tho caso of tho other
candidates that thoy, with tho assist
ance of tho candldato with the second
highest number of votes, will bo ablo
to hold tho lead in tho race, until a
break in Ids lino can bo forced and tho
way opened for a second choice man,

Democratic National Convention in

atuuit'iis superfluous' and unimportant
as tho National Convention of the Pro
hibitionists or of tho People's Party,
and will not its platform havo been
mado already? If it is deemed advisa
bio as a matter of form and for tho
completion of tho tceord to put up a
Democratic candidate, why should not
tho chairman of the Democratic Na
tioual Committee put in a hat tho
names of Graver Cleveland, Mr. Mills,
Frank Ilurd, Tom Johnson of Cleve
land nud Heurv Georjju and draw out
whatever namo tho lots favor? Tho
Democratic Party will havo chosen a
Speaker committed to nbsoluto Free
Trado nud an income tax. If the
platform wero polygamy and
suicide the party would havo just as
much chance of being successful in
Indiana, New York and Connecticut

American corn promises to assume
an important place in tho manufacture
of soap in Germany. Hitherto manu
facturers used linseed oil procured in
Russia, but owing to the failure of tho
crop thoro they wero compelled to look
in other directions for a supply of oil
East Indian linseed oil was tried, but
tho experiment was unsuccessful. An
eminent cticmist, after many experi
ments, has decided that the oil obtain
ed from corn is best suited for tho uses
of manufacturers. Tho latter aro now
obtaiidng their supplies from Chicago,
and the chances aro that the trade will
equal thirty or forty million bushels
.eaijj, J. c .Hull, agent or the United
States Treasury, is of tho opinion that
tho industry, onco started, will assume
immense proportions. Minister Phelps
in a speech at a Thanksgiving banquet,
appeared to anticipate a reduction in
tho corn tariff. He said: "Tho Amer
ican pig has entered Bradenburg Gate,
but is still hungry. By Christmas,
however, it will havo all it wants
cheap and enough."
Tho cattlemen in many parts of Co
chise will winter their stock without
loss. Only on tho overcrowded ranges
will the dry season bo felt. Epitaph.
B. A. Paekaul has returned from
Kansas. He repot ts tho cattle market
so utterly unsatisfactory that ho will
winter his stock there in prefeieneo to
selling them at present prices. Pros
pector. Dr. Grey, tho vcterinuriau ami ex
perienced cattle spnyer, together with
his son, is now engaged in spaying for
Colin Cameron all tho heifer calves of
tho brandings of 1890 and 1991. They
have just finished a contract with tho
Hagan Bros, of Souora, of 1000 head,
and one with R. R. Richardson of 500
head. Walter L. Vail of the Empire
nud Pautnno ranches has spayed every
heifer calf branded this yoar. Dr.
Grey spays at 20 cents eacli when tho
number is sufficient to warrant; small
er lots on spceial contract, depending
on time and distance from Tombstone.
Tho ranges of southern Arizona aio so
much overstocked that this is undoubt

The Census Burca"
has issued a I.-" ., at Washington
of the -"- ,.,iietin giving statistics
ange cattlo in Colorado, Now
..ic.xieo and Wyoming; tho figures com
pleted to June 1, 1890, show that in
Colorado and Wyoming there wero
090,778 cattle, 178,820 sheep, and
3G,318 horses. The wool clip amount
ed to 1,210,098 pounds. Intelligent
resident stockmen estimate that there
aro now no more than one-half tho
number of range cattle in Eastern
Colorado that there wero in 1885, al
though it is beyond question that cat
tle aro better bred, moro sizable, and
consequently moro valuable. It is
safe, therefore, to nssumo that although
the tax list may not show it, tho actual
value of cattle in Colorado- today is
greater than at any other time in tlu
history of tho State. Colorado steers
coming to tho Chicago yards aro so
largo and well conditioned that this
year thoy have been killed and tho
beef .sold to a considerable extent in
lieu of native catttle. The hides arc
sprcady, undesirable, nnd badly sidc-brnnded.
THE WOOL AIAUKJ2X.
Tho followiug is tho report of tho
Boston market for the week:
Tho total receipts of wool at this
port during tho past week comprise
9077 bags and bales domestic anil 683
bales foreign, against 10,987 bags and
bales domestic and 2890 bales toreigu
for tho samo time last year. Tho total
receipts since Jan. 1, 1891, comprise
513,940 bags and bales domestic and
149,321 bales foreign, against 403,040
bags and bales domestic and 103,698
bales of foreign for the samo time in
Tho sales for tho week comprise
2,022,6000 lbs of domestic ileeeo and
pulled, and 610,100 lbs foreign, mak
ing tho week's transactions foot up
2,632,500 lbs, against 1,937,000 lbs for
the pievious week, and 1,134,000 lbs
domestic and 421,000 lbs foreign for
the corresponding week last year.
There has been littio improvement
in tho general demand for wool tho
past week, although tho business dono
shows a slight increase over tho previ
ous six days. Tho market is quiet in
all departments, not to say dull, and
to .sell on tho present market former
prices cannot bo very firmly adhered
to. Tho tono is weak, taking tho mar
ket as a whole, but this is no more
than could bo expected when the do
pressing conditions of tho past few
mouths aro taken into consideration;
Tho demand for tho past few months
has been of a hand to mouth characer
with no one buying ahead of actual
needs, nnd naturally tho continued
dullness has depressed prices As
compared with a month ago, buyers
can do Jlc better now in getting
their supplies, although to offset this
thu wools havo been picked over to
somo extent, and what they make in
prieo is oftimes lost in the lightness
and condition of tho wools.
This refers in a great measure to
teiritory grades, which aro in in re
ality no better bargain now than buy
ers wero oftimes getting during July
anil August. Tho nominal price based
on the cost cleaned, is now below what
it was three mouths ago, but this docs
not always follow that the wool is
cheaper. Tho wools as classed when
they came into the market showed
fully 10 per cent rauge in tho light
ness of the wool for tho same grade,
for which the range in price was about
tho same. Buyers made a point of
picking up tho lighter lots, and neg
lecting tho heavy shrinkage piles, and
now with tho prieo about lc lower,
thoy arc unable to get as good bar
gains as was tho caso when tho wools
wei e piling in and dealers had little
time and opportunity olmtjr ll
actual value. Tho samo grades of
wool at present shown less wide range
of shrinkage, as tho lighter lots havo
been picked up, while dealers havo
become welVr posted as to their actual
shrinkage through repeated tests
which makes bargains less easy to fall
