CONDEMNED FOR TREASON.
rh Only Trial tut A Conviction Tor the
Offense In New Mexico. .
The records of the courts of Santa Fa
contain the history of a remarkable case.
They show that in the year 1847 a man was
indicted, tried, found guilty and sentenced
to be executed for the crime of treason
against the government of the United
States. It is said to be the only instance
during the existence of the government
where the civil courts have tried and con
victed prson for that high crime.
At that date this territory had only been
under the control of the United States for
a few months, and congress had not yet
organized civil government, bat the coun
try was governed by a code of laws pro
mulgated by Gen. Kearny, who, in com
mand of the American forces, took pos
session of the territory in August, 1846.
The trial referred to took place before
Jacob Houghton, chief justice of the terri
tory, and who was appointed by Gen.
Kearny. The indictment was returned
March 9, 1847, and was signed by R. Camp
bell its foreman of the grand jury, and
Frank P. Blair, Jr., as United States attor
ney. James Giddings was clerk of the
The defendant was Antonio Maria Tru
jillo. and it was charged in the indictment
that he, with others, in the territory of
New Mexico, with force and arms, and be
ing armed with weapons, maliciously and
traitorously made war upon the United
States and tried to destroy the constitution
and United States government.
It appears that about the beginning of
the year 1847 an inconsiderable number of
Mexicans formed the idea that the govern
ment of the United States was a petty in
stitution, and that they would drive the
Americans (Gringos) tut of the territory
and restore it to Old Mexico, and their
efforts resulted in a number of them being
indicted for treason and the' trial of the
case above referred to.
The sentence of Judge Houghton that
was passed upon the prisoner is in the fol
lowing words: "Antonio Maria Trujillo, a
jury of twelve citizens, after a careful and
patient investigation, pending which all
the safeguards of the law, managed by
able and indefatigable counsel, have been
afforded you, have found you guilty of the
high crime of treason against your govern
ment. What have you to say why the
sentence of deat h should not be pronounced
against you? Your age and gray hair have
excited the sympathy of both court and
the jury. Yet, while each and all were not
only willing but anxious that you should
have every advantage placed at your dis
posal that their highly responsible duty
under the law to their country would per
mit yet have you been found guilty of the
crime alleged to your charge.
"It would appear that old age has not
brought you wisdom nor purity nor hones
ty of heart. While holding out the hand
of friendship to those whom circumstances
have brought to rule over you, you have
nourished bitterness and hatred in your
soul. You have been found seconding the
acts of the most traitorous murderers that
ever blackened with a recital of their deeds
the annals of history. Not contented with
the peace and seeurit y in which you lived
under the present government, secure in
all your personal rights as a citizen in
person, in property and in your religion
yon gave your name and influence to meas
ures intended To effect a universal murder
and pillage, the overthrow of government
and one widespread scene of bloodshed in

you guilty of treason -against the govern-,
ment under which yon are a citizen, and
there only remains now to the cfitrri-the
painful duty of passing upon you the sen
tence of the li w, which is that you be taken
from hence tc- prison, there to remain until
Friday, the 13th day of April next, and
that at 2 o'clock of the afternoon of that
day you be ta ken thence to the place of
execution, and t here be hanged by the neck
till you are dead, dead, dead, and may the
Almighty God have mercy on your soul."
This sentence was never executed, for
before the time arrived for carrying the
same into effect the condemned man es
caped aud was never retaken. And thus
ended a case having no parallel in the
United States during the first century of
its existence and history. Indianapolis

The blunders of the greenhorn domestic,
have long be n travestied by the unve
racious paragn :pher; but the incident which
is here recited has the merits of truth and
novelty. A young couple had just secured
their first flat, itnd deemed themselves blest
in the services of an Emerald maid, who,
though abnormally green, was truthful,
willing and teiichable. As one of the first
complaints of the girl was that she didn't
find enough newspapers for kindling pur
poses, the youn ? couple ordered two dailies
from the nearest stand. "So, now, Maria,"
saia Mrs. , "you will have newspapers
Fully a week went by, and nothing was
seen of the par ers by Mr. and Mrs. .
At the end of tlat time Maria presented to
the young mistress a small slip of paper.
"It is the bill, ma'am, brought by the nice
little boy who supplies me i very morning
with the newspapers for kindling the fires,"
She had been using the papers the moment
they arrived. 5 ew York Tribune.
Railroad employes are sometimes surly
in their ways, but it is not to be denied
that they have to endure much stupid
questioning. A stout man with a large
bag and a distressed countenance came to
a ticket seller's window one day and said
"Tell me what time the 3:30 train
. The ticket seller looked at him with a
fixed and solemn gaze a moment and then
"It leaves at ten minutes of four."
"Ten minutes of four!" exclaimed the
stout gentleman. "What a fraud these
railroads are! Actually misleading people
five minutes in their time tables just for
the fun of seeing them get left!" Youth'
