Miss Helen Gehrlng, 17 years old, who was accidentally shot by a .22 calibre rifle In the hands of Ray Car son, a U-year-old boy, is reported to be doing well at St. Joseph's hospital, where she was removed after ths shooting yesterday afternoon from the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Gehrlng, 1015 South Third street. An operation was per formed after her removal to the hos pital and hopes are entertained for her speedy recovery. At the hospital this morning It was announced that the young lady appeared to be In good spirits. The shooting occurred at the home of Charles Shelkey, 311 Pacific ave nue. Mr. Shelkey is an uncle of the Carson youth, who lives with him. A number of boys were playing in the rear of the place and Miss Gehr lng, who had come across the street from her home, was Joking with them. They adjourned to the front room of the house, where, it is said, some of the other boys wanted Miss Gehrlng to kiss Ray Carson. The boy secured a cat rifle which stood in the corner of the rqom and playfully de fended himself with it. Miss Gehr lng grabbed the weapon by the muz lie and a struggle for the possession of the gun followed, during which it was accidentally discharged. The bullet entered Miss Gehring's side be low the heart and penetrated the In testines. She bravely walked to her home two blocks away after she was shot. A physician was summoned and she was later removed to St. Joseph'e hospital. . . Miss Gehrlng was to have been ctm flrmed In St. John's church by Bishop Kendrlck last night. The Carson youth did not know the rifle was loaded. i Mrs. Gehrlng, mother of the unfor tunate child, Is prostrated with grief. So is young Carson. It was reported last night that he attempted self destruction with a pocket knife, but the rumor is denied by his friends, After the shooting ho ran away, with several other children close after him. He was very much excited and the suicide story probably got its start from this fact. The young man Is a carrier for The Evening Citizen but will not be able to carry his route for several evenings owing to his nervous condition as a result of the accident. The gun, which Is the cause of all the trouble, is a small rifle. Some of the boys present when the shooting occurred,1, had the rifle down along the rtver In the morning, and it had been returned to the place where it was kept in a shed loaded. Young Carson did not know this. It is posl tively known that Miss Gehrlng, play fully, was trying to kiss the boy, and that he took the gun to defend him self.

STERLING GIVES ADVICE TO CHILDREN IT IS A CIUMH TO 1HHXT A GUN OF ANY KIM) AT ANY IT.K SON AT ANY TIME. Superintendent's Office, Feb. 18. Dear Principal: You have doubtless heard of the distressing accident resulting In the shooting of Miss Hazel Gehrlng, of the eighth grade, Central school. A like occurrence last year in these schools, and the constant repetition of this old, old story everywhere, the country over, makes it quite neces sary that someone should instruct children emphatically in the matter of handling guns of any kind, or per haps I had better say, "in the matter of letting firearms alone." Children should be taught that it is a CHIME TO POINT A Cil'N OF ANY KIND AT ANY PERSON AT ANY TIME. There Is no danger of giving this matter over-emphasis, and I would suggest that you show this letter to each of your teachers, with a view to having this matter brought before the pupils most forcibly. Yours sincerely, W. V. STERLING. Supt. City Schools. TOO LATE TO CLASSIFY. FOR SALE Furniture of a five room house; all new; used only five months. 306 West H lining. Aft ernoons.

MISS RECOVER CONCERN Wagner Hardware Company Buys Out the Albuquerque Hardware Company. This morning the announcement was made that the well-known Albu querque Hardware company had changed hands and that the new style of the concern would be the Wagner Hardware company. The president and manager of the new company Is John G. Wagner, who has been prom inent kn the business circles of the territory for the past twenty years, and who has since he first cams to New Mexico been engaged in the hardware business. Mr. Wagner first entered the business at Kingston, N. M., after which he opened a store in the same line at Las Vegas. For the past two years he has been acting In the capacity of general salesman for the Whitney company. Frank Coulthard, who has been with the Albuquerque Hardware company for several years, will be as sociated with Mr. Wagner in the management of the new concern, which will undoubtedly meet with the same generous patronage from the public which was accorded Its predecessor.

Go up From Albuquerque-Legislature to Hear From Bernalillo Co. It required two coaches to carry the crowd which left Albuquerque for Santa Fe on train No. 10 this morn ing. The special rate of $3.20 round trip fare proved a strong Inducement for an exodus to the territorial cap ital and then there were the delegates to the good roads convention, who were named at the meeting of the board of county commissioners Satur day, and the legislators who Sundayed in the Duke City. Most everyone at the depot this morning was going to Santa Fe. The ticket office gave It out that 100 tickets were sold. The occasion of the cheap rate to the capital and return this evening was the pilgrimage Inaugurated by the Boosters' club, which goes capital ward armed with certain representa tions they wish to make to the legis lature with respect to flood protection for Albuquerque from the Rio Grande and measures, which will result In the reduction of county officials' sal aries. Just how the Boosters propose to go about getting what they want from the legislature is not quite clear but they hope to make a showing in San ta Fe of the amount of interest that is taken in Albuquerque and Berna lillo county by the people thereof. It was a Jolly, good natured crowd which got aboard the cars Just be fore the conductor signalled for the train to depart and most of the num ber will return home this evening, while the remainder will stay to look after personal business matters or continue their Journey to other parts after a visit to the capital. Among those who depurted this morning were Mayor Frank McKee, Axel V. Tegner, J. L. LaDrlere, Frank A. Hubbell, E. W. Dobson, H. B. Fer gusson, Wallace Hesselden, John Lee Clark. Dr. Geo. W. Harrison, ThoB. N. Wllkerson, Maynard Gunsul, Wm. H. Chllders, R. W. Hadden, Dr. C H. Conners and others. Mr. Chllders goes to Santa Fe on private business. This evening he will leave the capital for Raton, where he represents Delegate Andrews In the election contest, testimony In which will be taken tomorrow at three named places In the Mouse City. Judge E. V. Long of Las Vegas rep resents Mr. Larrazolo. Dr. Conner Is president of the New Mexico Board of Osteopathy. The board meets, pursuant to the presi dent's call. In Santa Fe tomorrow for the purpose of examining applicants to practice in the territory. The goods roads convention, which assembles in Santa Fe today, will dis cuss the matter of better highways and outline plans for securing them. The representation from Albuquerque and Bernalillo county includes: Albuquerque C. M. Foraker, H. ISlueher. J. E. Matthew, William Farr, Jacobo Yrisarrl and Fred Otero. Old Albuquerque Jesus Romero, and Santiago Garcia. Atrlsco Manuel A. Jaramillo'. Parajito K. B. Clark. MR. JOHN JONES WAS REALLY "BILL" T! Drops $500 fin Albuquerque, Then Flutters Away to El Paso. A young man stylishlly dressed, of medium, height and weight, with a springy step, climbed the steps at Sturges European hotel . on Friday night with a great deal of labor. He was sllghtlty indisposed, apparently from excessive drink. "Haven't got a cent, but would like to have a room; got a letter of credit for $5,000," he said. "John Jones," he wrote on the reg ister, after asking the clerk If he had to register his own name. The following morning, as Mr. Jones came from his room, he ran Into the colored porter. "Good Lord, Mr. Thaw, where did you come from?" said the darky, In a voice trembling with fear. The young man brushed the negro, to one side with, " Get out, you black rascal; you don't know me." The porter, who Just recently came to the European, said that he would have sworn that the man was Harry Thaw, the man on trial In New York for his life for the killlne of Stanford White. He says that he used to work for the Thaws in Pittsburg. At the White Elephant saloon, where Mr. John Jones spent some time and money on Saturday, he told the bartender that his name was Willie Thaw and that ha was a cousin to Harry Thaw. The letter of credit story proved to be true, and Mr. John Jones drew $500 at a local bank. This money ho spent quite liberally at the bars around town. While in his cups he made no pretense of being anything but the real Mr. Thaw; in fact, he seemed to be very proud of the relationship. He explained his presence in the city this way; He anad a party of hunters were on their way to Mexico. He left the train at the station, to come over to the city, and when he came to his train had gone. As a sample of his fastidious taste, on Saturday evening he hired a cab to ride from the corner of Second street and Railroad avenuo to the European hotel ,a distance of one block. He paid his hotel bill and disap peared last night, and it Is thought that Mr. Thaw, alias Mr. John Jones, is now in El I'aso.

TWO-CENT FARE CRUSADE SWEEPING ENTIRE COUNTRY Bills Now Pending State Legislatures The Pennsyl vania House Passes Bill. Chicago, Feb. 18. The two-cent railroad fare crusade is sweeping through the United States. In nearly a score of state legislatures bills fixing a maximum rate for the carrying of passengers on railroads at two cents a mile are pending, and In most of these states the bill seems certain to be passed. Ohio led the way a year ago by passing a vn-cent fare law. The railroads of ttn.-t state adjusted them selves to the law and made the rate without an ar,peal to the courts. Al ready this year the legislatures of West Virginia and Arkansas have sent two-cent fare bills to the governors for their signatures. In Iowa, Indiana and Pennsylvania the two-cent bill has passed one or the other of the two houses of the legislature. In Mis souri both houses have passed two cent bills which differ only slightly and can be readily reconciled. In only one state so far. South Dakota, has the two-cent fare bill been definitely defeated. The movement Is more general In Its scope than the famous granger legislation of many decades ago, when many states of the middle west cut passenger fares to three cents a mile. Their right to do so was upheld by the United States supreme court after a bitter legal fight. The following Is a summary of the status of the two cent fare legislation In the various states: Arkansas Passed without giving the railroads a chance to present their side of the case. NEW DRY CONCENTRATOR MADE BY A DENVER MAN Denver, Colo., Feb. 18. Dry con centration Is coming in as a power ful factor In our milling of ores. S. K. Behrens, of Denver, has, after two years spent In experimental work, perfected a machine which bears every appearance of being a decided success. Mr. Behrens has had much experience with wet meth ods and his present invention Is the concrete result of such experience, combined with earnest study and me chanical skill. Dry concentration Is not a new thing by any means, but the device under present considera tion seems to be a very desirable Im provement upon others, that have been applied elsewhere. This ma chine Is twenty-two Inches wide by five i feet in W'ngthls rus i elec tricity, but inay be" pri'!'tled' by steam or water power, 'lire length of the table now used will be short ened; those which are to follow hav ing a length of only four feet. The Method EitiployiMl. The Behrens dry concentrator works entirely on the vacuum princi ple, drawing the air In 'through the mouth of a rapidly vibrating table and down through hollow metallic riffles. The air. In passing through these riffles, which are perforated, carries the silica and lighter material through the rlflles onto a board, dis charging the same as tailings, while the heavier material or concentrate Is deposited over the lower end of the table In a receptacle placed there for this purpose. The top of the table Is of glass, placed Just above the rlflles. The entire process Is ex tremely simple and very effective in saving the values. The minerals if various specific gravities are separ ated each by Itself by removing the heavier first and throwing all the lighter over as tailing, which are subsequently worked for their respec tive specific gravities. Much de pends upon the sizing, which is ac complished by a separate machine when the crude ore is reduced and sized as a condition precedent to con centration, i Absolutely DnxtlcMM. The machine is absolutely dustless. 1. MYERS CHOPPED MRS. REYES. WITH ONE HAND AX Gallant SpoHse Came to Res cue of Wife in Most Violent Manner. One, Myers, who re.-ides in Old Al buquerque, was arraigned this after noon before Justice of the Peace Jose Romero of precinct 13 on a charge of having assaulted Mis. Legorla Rey es, a native woman with a deadly weapon and bound ove r to the grand Jury. Tho weapon was a hand axe, which weighs probably a pound and a half. The Reyes woman showed the Justice a scalp wound that appeared as if It had been maJ? with a Bharp Instrument of some description. The alleged assault occurred Sat urday afternoon about 4 o'clock. It followed a hatr-pullim; between Mrs. Myers and Mrs. Reyes. The testimony showed that Myers came to the relief of his wife with the 1. itchet. The quarrel between the women re sulted over Myers refusing to permit the woman to cross his yard when she went after water i'i a neighboring yard. Garcia & Gurule have been award- ed the contract for repairing the j bridges and approaches to Chamlsal 1 in Nearly a Score of Indiana Senate bill making a pas senger ticket rate of 2 cents per mile, and 2H cents per mile when collected on trains, passed house; final passage certain. Iowa Possed house Tuesday, now before railroad committee of senate; may be held there until action is tak en by the railroad commission of Wis consin on a similar bill now before that commission. Illinois Bills pending in one branch of legislature. Kansas Bill In legislature. Minnesota Pending before the sen ate committee on railroads; certain to pass. Missouri House and senate both passed, now awaiting conference over amendments. Nebraska Bill drafted by Joint house and senate committee, vote ex pected In house today; both houses favorable to bill. North Carolina House passed 2 cent bill;. senate considering 2 4 -cent fare bill. Ohio Two-cent fare bill passed In spring of 1906. Oklahoma Two-cent fare provision may be Included In the constitution. Pennsylvania House passed 2-cent bill yesterday; goes to senate. South Dakota Bill defeated. West Virginia Two-cent fare bill passed by both houses of legislature. Wisconsin Pending before the state railroad commission. Decision not expected within the next two or three weeks; legislature waiting re port. It handles about eight tons of ore in the usual working day. Larger tons, up to any amount, will be ca,-cd for by duplicate machines, the same as In any other form of table concentra tlun. The cost of the dry machines Is $200 each, and they will be manu factured In Denver. The one I saw In operation was working tailings from Wllflcy tables, produced at the Colorado xlnc mill in West Denver. Two mine operators were there one from Aspen, the other from Lead vllle both watching it with the keenest Interest, "for," said tho Lead ville man, "I have a very large body of low grade ore which for want of proper and economical concentration I am unable to work. If this method will do the business, it wilj mean a great deal to me and to many other mining men who are similarly handi capped. Both will send lots of ore here 1 3 be tested by Mr. Behrens' process. Expulsion of Tailings. In a large mill, according to the inventor's statement, all the tailings and the dust arising from crushing or grinding, will be carried down be neath the flooring and deposited In the open air outside the building, so that the workmen will not be sub jected to annoyance. He is making a 75 per cent extraction from mill tailings, but thinks he can make a 90 per cent saving on the bulk of the ores produced from Colorado mines. He feels sure of beating the methods of wet concentration now employed The machine Is running at 1711 Cali fornia street and Is attracting tho at tention of a great many mining and mill men, who are Interested In con centration. It is certainly very in teresting and looks as if it might be several steps nearer to the final solu tion of the great problem on which some of the best talent In the coun try has, for the last twenty year. been engaged. There is no organi zation, no stock company connected with It Just the inventor, acting for himself alone. If he succeeds, it will be the beginning of a large, new manufacturing establishment In Den ver. ditch, to Corralos and the proposed repair work on the Barelas bridge. The contract price is $785. The county commissioners met at the Bernalillo county court house this morning to open the sealed bids on the repair and construction work that have been advertised. The bid of Garcia and Gurule was found to ; be the lowest. i The other bidders were D. D. Sampsell, Trlplett & Vanklrk, A. D. j Johnson and W. L. Trimble. I County Surveyor Pitt Ross report i ed to the commissioners that the sec ' ond dam at the Chamlsal ditch Is finished and that It cost $187. This Is the place where the river broke through last year. Mr. Ross recommended that the west bank of the Rio Grande above the Barelas bridge be protected where the river is now cutting into It. Only Commissioners Springer and ArmlJo were present at the meeting. .MISSOI RI Ol'STEIt ACTION' CONCLUDED. St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 18.
