Ormsby McIIarg and E. P. Gor don, the assistant U. S. attorney gen erals, have not made a statement ana while they imeet all representatives of the press dally, they absolutely refuse to make any statements as to their plans. It is known, however. that special land officers and other federal omciais are in various por tlons of New Mexico conducting In vestigations of land deals and other matters of a like nature. Oilier Hemovals Humoral. The usual amount of rumors are afloat here today. Among the latest are that several Judges of district courts are slated for removal as well as their clerks. These rumors, like many others can not ibe traced further than street talk. Another report is that E. 1. Gordon Is known as an indictment expert" and that he has been sent to New Mexico for the sole purpose of drawing up the indictments for the special officers. I SiHviul Agents' Counsel. Mr. Gordon, it is also said, will be he man "behind the gun," In all le gal proceedings which the special of ficers may consider advisable and that in other words, he is the chief coun sel for the special agents.

GOOD PROSPECT FOR IMMEDIATE SUCCESS Proposed Plants Will be Large and Well Worth Going After President Brooks Optimistic Regarding Present Situation. ' .Albuquerque may yet have a big smelter, notwithstanding the fact thai the Trl-Uulltun Mining company has decided to locate Its plant at Canon City, Colo. In fact, while the land is practically In condition lor pur chase for a site for this company's smelter and the fueX transportation and other problems had been settled In favor ot the company, the lead ers In the movement to secure the smelter are not feeling at all badly over the change In location. Two other propositions, both for smelters much larger than the Trl-Uuliion plant, have been attracted by the of fer of Albuquerque to the Tri-Uul-liun company, and It is believed that one of these companies will locate au immense plant here. .Leading business men today state that negotiations which have beeu under way for some days, will now be pushed to a conclusion and that Albuquerque will have a smeller within a short time. George ti. Brooks, president of the Commercial club, stated today; President Optimistic. "When we first 'began negotatlng with Mr. Traylor. of the Tri-Builiou company, the proposition was that he would erect a smelter with a ca pacity of liuu tons a day. but of late he was merely considering a fifty- ton iplant, that is to start wltn. Con sidering the fact that he was able to acquire a plant which cost a million dollars for a song at Canon City it is not to Ibe wondered at that his company finally decided to locate at that place. Yet it seems strange that the company would deem It aavia- able to establish its plant so far from lis base of ore supplies which is th Kelly district of New Mexico. "A smelter In this country cannot run in opposition to the smeller trust if It must depend upon custom trade. The plant taken over by the Tri-iSulllon company at Canon City had to cease operations by reason of the competition of the smelter trust which cut Its smelter charges in that vicinity until the rival works were compelled to go out of business. Thus this big plant became practical ly worthless and was bought for a very low price by the 'Iri-JJUlllon company. 1 venture to state that a well equipped smeller established in Albuquerque could handle Traylor' ore from the company's mine south of here cheaper than he can handle them himself after paying the cost of transportation to Canon City. Expect Success. "The people of Albuquerque have worked hard for a smelter; the busi ness men have contributed generous ly to provide a site and no end of effort has been made toward guaran teeing the necessary supply of slack and coal at reasonable price for ths smelter people. Moreover, most ad vantageous rates were promised by the railroads, both for ore and fuel shipments. Naturally none of these advantages are lost and they can still be taken advantage of by other con cerns that may locate here. This city is now in a position to offer better inducements to a smelter company than ever before and we do Jiol en tertain any doubt that a big smelter can find it worth while to come here. So we do not feel that the work we have done has been in vain. In faot two large firms are at present nego tiating in regard to establishing big plants here and both of these are considering bigger 'propositions, by far, than the Traylor proposition." ARTISI WEDS AN INDIAN TEACHER Frederick W. Cantleld, of Ctiea. N.

In order to protect the grave of her mother and to keep the government from despoiling it, Miss Lyda Con ley, the only Indian woman lawyer In the country, has erected a cot tage In the center of Huron ceme tery here, and with a shotgun will drive off those who attempt to take possession of the property.

The government ,at the request of the city authorities, has had a com mission appointed to dispose of the property. Miss Conley sought to pre vent this in the federal circuit court, but she has been ruled against, and it was the ruling that caused her to prepare to guard her mother's grave when the time comes.

Many of these offers are coming from San Antonio and San Antontto. the latter being a small village, prac tically part of San Antonio, and where both parties to the killing lived. Mrs. Peralta has always borne an excellent reputation In this coun ty, her family being known for its honesty and thrifty qualities and there Is not the slightest doubt but Wiat she will obtain bond as soon aa the court acta in the matter. Await a Prclimlimry. Her preliminary hearing will be held at San Antonio, before the Jus tice of the peace In that precinct and it is the general belief of her neigh bors and friends that she will be cleared of the charge of murdering the boy, as it Is almost certain that she can clearly show the Justice that the boy was trespassing on her prop erty, and that she believed he . had come to harm her daughter, at whose window some of the party he waa a member of, had tapped several times Just prior to the shooting. She also expects to show that she had prcr vlously warned the boys to keep away from her home and that she had called to them three times on the night of the killing, warning them that they must keep away from tne girls' bed chamber window.

Her statementa are borne out in detail by her daugh ters, and also by other facts in con nection with the case. Can Give lloiul. Should the Justice at San Antonio hold her to the grand Jury without bond, application will be made Im mediately to the district Judge to fix bond for her, and there seems not the slightest doubt that she will be released in a short time, either by action of the Justice at the prelimi nary, when she may be discharged from custody, or in case he commlta her to Jail to await action of the ifiMini iinv hv the flxlnor of bond bv the district court.
