I think we will all admit that It would have been Impossible for Albuquerque to have defrayed the heavy expenses of the congress had It not have been for Mr. Andrews who secured for us an appropriation of $311 .111111. Uy that appropriation Mr. Andrew-- has enabled us to fittingly entert .in the thousands of people who will visit us from the east and to do so in a manner which will reflect the greatest credit upon our city and ter ritory.

HIS COMPANION HASJDISAPPEARED Two Young Men Started Sunday to Walk From Roswell to Albuquerque-Four Knlte Wounds Tell Method of Death-tvl-dence of Struggle Found. Roswell, N. M., June 28. Albert Ross, a young health seeker from St Loui.s, who has spent several months in Uoswell, was found dead today 45 miles northwest of this city, with four knife wounds In his body. The place where the body was found gives evi dence of a terrible struggle. Ross left Roswell last Sunday In company with Theodore Kulay, a German shoemaker, with whom he had become acquainted during his stay here. The two announced their Intention of walking to Albuquerque, believing the trip on foot would be of great benefit to Ross's health. When they left here they were laughing and joking and apparently on the bust of terms. So far as known they were not seen again by anyone of this city and It was supposed they were well on their way to Albuquerque. Word of the finding of the body was brought to Roswell immediately and the officers here at once started an Investigation. Kulay has disappeared and all ef forts today to find any trace of him have been futile. The officers at Al buquerque have been notified to be on the lookout for him but no word was received from them and it '0 thought that Kulay abandoned his Idea of going to Albuquerque and took train for some other point. According to the story brought to town today the body of Ross was found In a lonely spot off the road. The ground and brush were spattered with blood, his clothing was torn and disarranged and the ground was trampled as though from a terrible fight. The four knife wounds told phiinly how he had met his death, and he was bruised about the head and body, the bruises evidently hav ing been made during the struggle. The search for Kulay la being con tinued. Officers Are Watching. Theodore Kulay, the German shoe maker, who Is supposed to know how Albert Ross, the health seeker whose body was found forty-five miles this side of Roswell, came by his death, has not made hlfi appearance here. and u Is believed that after the kill ing he changed his mind about com lug to Albuquerque. A private telegram received In the city .i.ys that Kulay might be expect ed here. This telegram came last night and officers were put on the case Immediately, but considering the time that has elapsed since the mur der of Ross there Is little hope that the man will be apprehended. It Is believed that he may have been here and gone, or he may have taken some other rjute. Knowing that persons in Roswell knew that he and Ross had Wt there for Albuquerque, and also knowing that when the body was found he would be suspected and fol lowed, he would doubtless take we other route than that planned by he and Ross at Roswell. II- may have followed the New Mrtii 1 Icstern railway to the Rock lt.uid. i.ud there gone cither north or south, or he may have come through on the Santa I'" to Helen and turned south there. There Is also a poss bility that h left the San ta Fe at wllard and took the Santa Fe Centiai toward Santa Fe. The murder was undoubted. y committed f q money. According to a private dispatch Hofs was thought to have had considerable money on his person when he left Uoswell. Tile local au thorities have not been given a good description of Kulay and It If feared that he tnay even yet slip through the ii:v. Tin- officers here have a good rim- which Is expected to develop to day. Sill. KM AX'S 1 M I l l V KM KX T II AS t'OXTIXI lil TIY Clevcland, June 26. The com! lion of t'ongresMiian James tf.

USED ROPeITt TOJND HIS LIFE Brought From. Atrlsco Yesterday to be Examined for Insanity He Commits Sulclce In Presence of County Prisoners Dur ing the Night. Driven Insane by the thought of having been partly responsible for the murder of a little boy, Donaclano Uarcla, 45 years old, a rancher liv ing at Atrlsco, a village on the west bank of the Hlo Grande opposite this city, ended his life last night at the county Jail by hanging himself. The body was discovered at 4 o'clock this morning by a fellow prisoner named Martinez, hanging by a small cord tied to a bar In the window. The lower limbs of the body touched the floor, and death was caused by stran gulation, the small cord cutting deep into the flesh of the neck. Life had probably been extinct an hour when the body was discovered, as the limbs were cold. Martinez aroused the Jail er. Justice of the Peace Koniero was summoned and a coroner's Jury brought to view the body. The In quest was continued at the court house this afternoon. Ourcla was brought here yesterday by an officer from Atrlsco to be ex amined for insanity. He had been acting otiangely for some time, ac cording to relatives, and has on sev eral occasions threatened to take hi' life. Yesterday ne complained of having a strange hot feeling In his ab domen and Uild Deputy Sheriff Heyn that he would like to be put Ui a cool place. The county physician was summoned and gave the man some medicine. After being placed in the Jail Uarcla continued to complalii of being hot inside. He retired with the other prisoners, however, about 9 o'clock, lying down on a pallet In the corridor which surrounds the main cell. A large- number of prisoners Bleep In this corridor and the bunks are only a few feet apart. About 3 o'clock this morning Uar cla was heard to yell in a loud and excited voice: "Thuodoslo!" Theo dosio Sandoval, another prisoner in the corridor, heard his name called and was about to answer, when a man on the same bunk told him to keep still, saying that the crazy man would keep them awaku all night with hU talk. An hour later Uarcla was found hanging beneath the window. Cold in death. It Is believed that if San doval had answered the call or inves tigated he would have saved tjarcla's life. The rope had probably Jut be come taut around his neck when he yelled. The cord Willi which Uarcla hung himself had been used by him us a belt, and wus not over four feet long. One end hail be n lied to the bar on the outside of the open window. The other end the insane man wound twice around his neck and tied in a lip knot. The man must have stood at the window until he had tied the two knots, and when lio had finished pushed his knees forward as though to nil down. The cord was not strong enough to stand a very great strain. The crime which preyed upon Uar cia's mind was the killing of a lutle boy by the name of O'Uannon of Ha re. as by Jimu Pomucciio Luise eight years ago. J.uise was convicted of murder and sentenced by Judge Cruinpacker to hang. The hanging took place in Old Albuquerque less than a huudref yards from where Uarcia took hU own lite last night. Deputy I'nited States Marshal C. K. Newcomer, who wu chief deputy un der .-1 1 . 1 if 11 lib bull at that time, pulled the trap which sent Lulse to perdition. The day of tlie murder Uarcla and Lui.se had been drinking In Old Al-bu-iuer iue. They had started for their homes across the river, when they came across several small native boys playing in iiarleas road where that thoroughfare intersects the road which runs east and west across iia relas bridge.
