It is a poor snow that snows in vain.
The snowstorm that came a week ahead
of Christmas and put a temporary crimp
in the racing game across the river,
proved a valuable blessing in disguise.
From a soft, dusty, heavy going -track,
the Juarez race course has developed
Into a fast speedway as a result of the
thorough soaking it received from the
melting snow and subsequent rains. The
mile and an eighth track is now as hard
as a motor speedway and the only thing
the racing secretary has to fear Is that
the adobe soil in its composition will
pack too hard and make the running
hard on the horses's feet.
Track records were smashed last
week with daily regularity. The five
eighths was run Sunday in 0:59 3-5,
which is the best time for the Juarez
track. This time was made by Paja
roita and an effort will be made to low
er this record. Friday Enfield went
five furlongs In 1:00 1-5. Thursday
Execute did six furlongs In 1:12 4-5, and
Lady Esther did the mile in 1:39 3-5.
None of these records are better than
other track records, but for a new track
and one that was In such poor condition
at the start, the time that was made last
week is considered very good.
The shoots are largely responsible for
the fast time that is being made, as
they are proving unusually fast and the
positions of the three are such that the
least possible hindrance is offered the
horses on the turns. The mile shoot
is very fast and the horses come out of
this at a speed that gives them the jump
NO OEAL BETTING
AT SANTA ANITA
Track on Baldwin's Califor
nia Banch Will Not Open
Santa Anita, the running race course
on the late "Lucky" Baldwin's ranch
in California near Los Angeles, will
not open again. George Rose, who is
financially Interested in the Santa
Anita track and who is one of the
bookmakers across the riea, made
this statement some time ago.
It was corroborated Mondaj' in Los
Angeles by Thomas J. William, presi
dent of the California Jockey club, who
telegraphed friends in Los Angeles
that he did not think there was any
chance for racing at Santa Anita this
It has been reported several times
that Santa Anita would open under
the oral betting system now being tried
at Oakland. This Rose denied, saying
that he did not think that a meeting
under such conditions would be suc
cessful. RAGING- RESULTS.

How joyfully, at break of day, I seized my gun and took my way, to
leave the dreary town! Perchance," I said, ni shoot a bear, or -chase a
walrus to its lair, or run a rabbit down." I clambered over gates and stiles
and walked about ten thousand miles, and tried to think it fun; the gun
that was so light at first, when I had traveled forty verst, weighed fully
half a ton. Misfortune dogged the path I took; I fell into a babblin
brook and swallcwea half its flow; entangled in a barb wire fence, I used
some language -o. intense it .melted all tfie snow. At last I saw a blooming
hare and with the fury of despair, I aimed he gun and fired; I missed the
wretched beast, of course; I merely winged a farmer's horse; what followed
made me tired. They hauled me up before the judge, who called my ex
planations fudge, and taxed me fifty bucks; the wilderness for me no more!
i patronize the corner store for rabbits; coons and ducks!

LAS CRUCES AND
Las Cruees Committee Con
sidering Water and Light
Las Cruees, N. M.. Jan.4. Last night
the committee of 20 citizens appointed
for the purpose of reporting to that body
on waterworks and electric light fran
chises, held a meeting.
On the question of whether water and
electric light works are demanded by
the taxpayers it has voted affirmatively.
On the necessity for a system of sew
age disposal it has also reported affirm
As to the revenues of the town, and
whether or not under the present limi
tations and system of town government,
the city is assured of sufficient revenues
to meet the obligations which would be
necessarily Imposed upon In provid-f
ing these utilities, a subcommittee has
reported on the revenues of the town
under the present system and pointed
out several ways under the
whereby a considerable additional
amount could be provided.
As to whether the town should pro
vide Its own waterworks or whether a
franchise should be granted to a private
corporation a subcommittee that has
been investigating the cost of construc
tion, maintenance, and operation of an
j adequate water system, has not report-
As to whether the committee thinks
such franchises should be granted to
private corporations, on what terms and
conditions, including such matters as
water pressure for protection against
fire, the right of the town to purchase
the plants of the private corporations
and the rates to the 4own and to the
Individual consumers, the committee has
taken it up only as applies to an elec
tric light system, as it was almost
unanimously agreed that It was not
feasible at the present time for the
town to attempt an electric lighting
system. On this subject a subcommittee
was appointed, consisting of Messrs. lie
Bride, Freuger Gouzales, Peacock and
Paxton to report terms under which the
town should grant a franchise to a pri
vate corporation for the operation of an
electric light planL This committee
used the proposed franchise, which had
been presented by the Las Cruees Elec
tric Light and Ice company as a guide
and its recommendations are by sec
tions and paragraphs corresponding with
that of the proposed franchise. After
the acceptance of the report by the com
mittee of the subcommittee the latter
at its request was discharged.
The proposed franchise and recom
mendations were read last night by
parallel sections and discussed so that
the entire committee could have the ad
vantage of the views of the others, that
ail mignt be better preparea to pass j
deriniteiy on the suDject at a suDse
quent meeting. It is hoped to do this
finally at the next meeting Friday night.

mittee were present at this meeting: R.
