The various camps made a good showing, many of them having complete uniforms in gray.

The bulk of the crowd will turn their faces homeward this evening, but many will remain a few days longer for the pur pose of sightseeing. BAVARIAN ROYALTIES COMING.

More About Representative Baca's Great Find In Sandia Mountains. INDIAN LEGEND. The Citizen on Tuesday told of a rich strike made by Representative R. L. Baca, of Santa Fe, In the Sandlc mountains, alout seven miles from Bernalillo. The strike gives every promise of great richness and If the ore holds out as it started the rich Clark mines In Arizona will have wor tny rivals, home old miners, who have examined the location, say the Btrike will hold out. Bernardo Fralre, an old miner. Is interested with Mr. Baca and several others. The new discovery has attracted a great deal of attention, owing to the fact that for a great many years a tra dition has prevailed among the oldest inhabitants of Bernalillo that there was a very rich mine In the mountains not far from the Pueblo of Sandia. The legend says that up to iuo0 the Spaniards worked a wonderfully rich mine on the east side of the Sandia mountains and that they compelled the Indians, by force, to work for them and that after the Indian rebellion ot luai), when the Spaniards were forced to abandon the country, the Indians covered up the mine and have taken great care that no one finds the place. The Indians of that village are in the habit of sending an Indian every morning towards the mountains, and the people believe that he goes to see whether anyone Is prospecting In the neighborhood of ie hidden mine. The Indian goes to the slope of the moun' tain and returns home. This is done every day of the year. If there Is any truth In this legend, it is possible that the much looked for mines have been rediscovered or that others In the same Bectlon have been found. A Railroad Denial. New York, May 22.

Andrews, Hopewell and Sev eral Others in the Metropolis. SOME INTERESTING INTERVIEWS. Senator W. H. Andrews and General Manager W, S. Hopewell, the Iron man of the Santa Fe Central and Albuquer que Eastern railroad companies, came down to the metropolis last evening from Santa Fe with their party of eastern capitalists, who are interested lu the wellfare and advancement of the great territory of New Mexico. The party registered at the Alvarado as follows: W. H. Andrews, Andrews, N. M.; A. C. Quay, Lancaster, Pa.; A. J. Lester. Springfield. 111.; G. W. Del amater, Pittsburg, Pa.; W. S. Hope well, Santa Fe. The eastern people came here to inspect the lines and see what a grand place New Mexico is. All are enthusiastic about the country and Its possibilities, and all predict a great future for It. Mr. Hopewell was seen by The Citi zen representative thia morning and said everything was going along nice ly. He Is doing everything possible to bring about the completion of the main line of the Santa Fe Central be tween Santa Fe and Torrance by July 1. Were It not for the great difficulty of obtaining railroad laborers, the road would have been completed before this. The material Is on hand now, but the fact that sufficient labor can AT LOS ANGELES not be hired Is retarding progress. But still It looks as If Mr. Hopewell'a endeavor to have the track completed and operation of the line begin on July 1 will be fulfilled, although it will take much exertion to do so. With the driving of the last spike on that line and the completion of that road, and Its proposed branches, a new era of prosperity, advancement and progress for central New Mexico will begin. Senator Andrews, who was a tower of strength for the good of this terri tory at the last session of the legisla ture. Is looking pretty well after bis Indisposition. He said they had looked over the site of the proposed station for the Albuquerque Eastern, and the papers would probably be signed to day or tomorrow.- The senator says we are to have statehood given us at the next session of congress, but H will be one big state composed of New Mexico and Arlsona. Offices for the city, and the senator Is to have an of fice here .too. The furniture 1 at ready here. The offices will probably thinks a whole lot of the Duke city and tle: that our trad l tmii h.v tm. dustrles are coming and Albuquerque is going to be a big pity. The senator Is the kind of a man to have with hb. Such men of his calibre are worth something to the community. The senator will go east with the party as far as Chicago, and return here some t'me In June. Colonel Lester is the good-looking man of the party, and Is a prominent man in politics In the state that gave "Honest Abe" birth. He is having a bully time here in the territory, and thinks a heap lot, as the red man says, of the wonderful resources it posses ses. Commenting on the Santa Fe Central, he said: "The work on the Santa Fe Central line looks to me to-' be of a very substantial and lasting nature, and it is a surpriseio me that so much work has been done In so short atime. The men who are fur nishing the mcney to build the road are doing so for themselves, and the road Is not for sale. The property la a very valuable one, and means a good deal for the territory. The country through which it runs has unlimited resources, and U will develop fast now It has an outlet. I believe those great plans which I saw form a great ar tesian belt, and that water from sub terranean resources will yet irrigate the whole country.
