MASSACRE OF WHITES DECLARED IMMINENT Depredations Thus Far Confined to the Purblo Tribe Cutting Telephone and Telegraph Wires and Attacking Homesteader's Wife and Children Punishment Believed Cause. (By Associated Tress.) FAST LAS VKCAS. N. M.. May Fl. An uprising ol serious proportions lias broken out among the Pueblo In? dians at Toas. 7U miles northwest, and tonight troops are hurrying by special trains from Santa Fe to check a possible massacre of white ranchers. Taw Indians have cut all telephone and telegraph wires from Taos. but reports indicate that the depredations I.ave been confined to an attauk on the wir,- and children of L. L. Myers, a atMM steader. the cutting of fences and the theft of horses and cattle. Further attacks are feared by ranch? ers, and Judge John R. Mt-Fie. con? cluding c >urt at Taos. today issued fan urgent demand for troops to Gov? ernor Mills. He declared a massacre was imminent. The governor im aadlati ly ordered fifty nu n of the rational guard, to Taos. The guards men will reach Taos tomorrow morn it-K. General Brooks, in command of the rational guard, has also ordered another company at Santa Fe too be in readiness to march at a moment's notice. Cause of Trouble. The uprising oi the Pueblos, who for y< ars have been peaceable, is believed to have been caused by the punish? ment of Pueblos by territorial otlicers. For years the l'ueblos have governed ;r.eirselves, electing their own chiefs and village count illers. who tried and punished malefactors of the tribe with appeal to the territorial officers. Ban ral months ago an Indian of lsletta. who had been imprisoned by an Indian officer, ap|>ealed to the ter? ritorial courts and the Indian chief and the councillers of the village were put in jail. Since that time the In dans have been unruly and it is be? lieved that the present outbreak is the -.esult of fear by the Pueblos that they may lose their independence. For severai weeks ranchers near Taos have found 'heir fences cut and their stock missing. The discontent of the Indians clminatcd yestercay :n the attack on the Myers household. Don't Like Census Taking. The taking of the census is also be? lieved to have caused much unrest among the Indians. When the rnume? rators rached Santo Domingo and f*an Dia. the Indians refused all in? formation concerning members of the tribe and threatened the enumerators with violence. It was only after the aaaaas. takers had-threatened to bring troops and former Governor rnrry had gone |>ersonally to the chiefs and reas? sured them about the puri?>se of the i ens u s that the Indians were persuad? ed to answer questions. Season east? ern artists are believed to be in or near Taos. which was once the head? quarters of Kit Carson. making sk. tches of Indian life. Taos is the oldest and most picturesque town of I he Pueblos. colonelTooM. denies the report Ex-President Sa>s He Hasn't' Expressed Himself on Taft's Administration. I By MinaM I T?? 1 RERUN.

When the Circuit Court convened for the aftertK on session today Elizabeth City county began putting oti testi? mony opposing the annexation by Newport News . t the terr.tory pro? posed to be taken in by the proceed? ings now in proa;reap. In all, (Ouiteew w it n esses were on the stand during the day, six for the'" petitioners or the city, and eight for the county. The fourteenth was on tin' stand when c urt adjourned to rocoveae tomorrow morning at in O'clock While it la possible that .luilge Scott may decide to hold a night session in order to ' finish the hearing this week, it now seems probable that the case will not be disposed i f before Monday after? noon. Probably the most interestiac trHr ness today was \> alter It. L;vezey, local auditor of the Old Dominion Land Company, who testified concern, ing the en rnious holdings of his com? pany in and nbotit the eif.- of New? port News; expressed the belief that the city at sreetjal has all the terri? tory it needs or can take care of. and said he did not consider an extension of the limits desirable or necessary. On Cross-examination of Mr. Livezey by Messrs. Massie and BatcheLr, it was established as a fact that prac? tically no waterfront property in New. port News or above or below the city on .lames river is or has been avail? able for residential purposes. The object of this was t^ show that citi? zens of Newport KeSri who desire to br.ild their homes on the waterfront have been obliged t. seek sites in the Boulevard section. ' Retrenchment" in Evidence. With City Clerk Floyd lludgins, i f Newport News, on the stand, Mr. Cumming managed to get the re? trenchment program of a special com? mittee of tiu- council in evidence to? day. Mr. Massie succeeded in keep? ing all of this out in the Warwick Ct unty proc eedings. However the court seemed to pay no especial at ; tention to this matter, and the clerk was not allowed to read the retrench raent ordinances in detail. The last witness on the stand to? day was the first witness introduced by the county who lives in the terri t ry proposed to be annexed. His testimony attracted considerable at tention. as be was the first Boulevard ite to express a desire to remain out? side of the city. The county nas a number of wit? nesses yet to be heard, and the evi? dence hardly will be all in before late tomorr ?? afternoon. LIM* Testimony Barred, ?fudge Scott has shown a .1 tlon to bar no testimony that |*?ssib!y cin have bearing on the case. He overrules promptly every technical bjertion from either side to the ad mission of testimony. . Judge Scott convened r uin at tBtas o'clock and Stuart R. Berry. ag?nt of the Old Dominion Steamship Comiiany. at Old Point, was asked to take the witness stand. Mr. Berry aaid lie formerly Btspi en ihe Boule? vard, but now resides in Hampton He came to Hampton because the house in which he resided has been sold. Mr. Berry sail he expected later to again make his home on the Boulevard and he favor*d annexation of the territory to Newport News be? cause of better police and Are pro Net ion.
