WACO, TEXAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1888.

for the balance of the season at such
El Paso Tex,. The propriety of
a bill introduced a day or two ago by
Chairman Holman of the committee
on Public Lands, into the United
States House of Representatives, to set
apart a large tract of land near Cochite
on the Rio Grande in New Mexico, as
a national reservation on account of
its many archaeological remains, was
illustrated and confirmed by Hon.
Amada Chavez one of the leading
citizens of the Territory who lives not
far from that section of country and
who comes occasionally to El Paso
on business. He discovered a short
time ago one mile north of the little
town of San Maeto the ruins of an
extensive city the existence of which
had never been suspected before.
The action of the windshade covered
the larger portion of the ruins with
sand and other detritus and converted
the whole into an extensive mound,
and it was only a severe rain storm
and cloud burst sweeping away one
of this mound and disclosing some
heavy stone walls that made the dis
covery possible. Mr. Chavez has
since uncovered one or two of the
ruins, and obtained a number of inter
esting relics. A skeleton was found
having three strands of beads around
its neck one of turquoise one of jet
and the other of bone. There were
also large ear-rings of. jet and turquoise
with the skeleton and remains of the
hair which was not black but brown
besides ornamantel pottery and arrow-heads
with a quantity' of maize
This skeleton with the articles
enumerated was found in a small
chamber of masonary built up with a
very adhesive cement. Ths excava
tions thus far made have discovered a
large building with massive stone
walls and a tower at each corner. It
logics more like the remains of a
citadel than an ordinary dwelling.
The masonry is of the best kind and
the interior chambers are plastered
and painted white. In the center of
this structure was lound a water res
voir from which stone aqueducts led in
many .directions. A dim tradition

Bradford returned last night from

and a few deputies. Ho examined a
number ofpooploin different towns
and all eye wituossos of tho affair.
Tho tostimony Is unanimous to the ef
fect that Cross and party arrived at

asked permission of tho Haymakers
to Ho down and rest and thoy woro
sleeping and aprohoudiug no danger
when thoy wero suddenly arrousod by
Robinson and hio men and siiot down
without having any ohance to defend
thomsolves. All threo of theso wit
nesses say that not one shot was fired
by Sheriff Cross or any of his mon.
Gen. Bradford has gathered a largo
amount of testimony which ho will
submit to tho govonor. Gon. Myors
found that no troops wero ncodod and
so tho mission of tho two officials is
ouded for tho present. Business is at
