ARRESTED AS DESERTERS.
Two Men Working in the Local Shops
are in Trouble.
' A PECULIAR CASE.
Frank II. Bush and George H. Smith-
over were arrested at the Santa Fe
Pacific shops this morning by Deputy
United States Marshal Fred Fornoff,
charged with being deserters of the
United States army.
The circumstances surrounding the
case ara very unusual. The prisoners
were private soldiers and stationed at
Fort Wingate. About the middle of
last week Secretary of War Root tele
graphed Major Hardie, officer in
charge of the troops at Wingate, that
any soldier whose terra of enlistment
would expire In less than twelve
months, would not be sent to the Phil
ippines, but would be discharged pro
viding they would re-enlist for a short
term. There were about twenty-eight
buch enlisted men at the post and they
were extended the discharge and re
enlistment privilege. It seems as
though only an oath, that they would
re-enl!st was exacted from them before
they were tendered their discharges.
Some ten or twelve decided that they
had received their final discharge and
were no longer held as enlisted men.
They left the fort on the 13th and
came to Albuquerque.
The two arrested went to work at
the local shops as boiler maker help
ers, the other eight or ten departed
for points unknown.
Major Hardie telegraphed here yes
terday to have the men arrested. A
deputy marshal called on the two at
the shops and talked to them, but did
not arrest them. The circum
stances were investigated and this
morning the arrest was made. Major
Hardie was telegraphed and will prob
ably be here tomorrow.

cussion for some time and the cities

ognize the fact that their mutual in

Hope at New Orleans.
New Orleans, March 18. The fact
that there has been no rise of any con
sequence since Saturday and that the
weather continues clear has enabled
the state, federal and district authori
ties materially to Improve the tempor
ary levees In front of the city. The
New Orleans levee board said today
the situation was full of hope and that
there was no reason wnatever for local
apprehension. The gauge today mark
ed 19.3, a rise of 0.1 In twenty-four

THAT MERGER CASE.
Arguments Being Heard in United
States Court of Appeals.
IN ST. LOUIS THIS TIME.
.St. Louis, March 18. The famous
case of the United States vs. the
Northern Securities company, compris
ing the Northern Pacific and Great
Northern railroads, which has been in
litigation for some time, was called
for trial this morning.
At 10 o'clock the hearing of the ar
guments iu the anti merger case of the
United Slates government against the
Northern Securities company, of New
Jersey, icgaii at 10 o'clock this morn
ing in the United States court of ap
peals before Judges Sanborn, Caldwell,
Thayer and Van Daventer. Legal coun
sel for both sides arrived last night.
Judge Caldwell announced at the
opening of court that attorneys would
not be limited as to time in the pre
sentation of arguments. James M.
Beck, assistant attorney general,
opened for the government. Beck
showed the importance of the case in
his argument, showing that if the
merger should stand, it would nullify
the interestate commerce act of 1887
and that of 1890. The Sherman anti
trust law clearly prohibits such a com
bination. At 12 o'clock, while Assistant Attor
ney General Beck was still delivering
his arguments, a recess was taken
until 2 o'clock.
The case comes to St. Louis for trial
because of the fact that the United
States court at St. Paul, where the
case originated through action taken
by Governor Van Sant, and the United
States court at St. Louis are In the
same circuit and St. Louis Is more con
venient for some of the Jurists and
counsel engaged in the case than St.
Paul. Both sides are represented by
an eminent array of legal talent and
the trial promises to be one of the
most notable ever held in the Inlted
Slates courts In this city. The issue
at stake Is equally important as upon
the decision of the court depends the
much mooted question as to whether
the Sherman anti trust law can be
made an effective weapon in the regu
lation or suppression of alleged un
lawful combines of capital.

ing visions of elephauts, clowns and
bareback riders. This time it Is the

country last fall and during the past
few months au army of workmen have
been busy slinging red paint and put
ting on gold leaf so that everything
will look spick and span when the

Square Garden tonight. There Is only
one drip of bitterness In the cup of
joy lor the small boy. There Is to be

torn up that a parade would endanger
the crowd of spectators.
