"Yes, I tooK It. 1 plead guilty," was Richmond's prompt answer. The case of young Kiehmond should be an example for other young men in Albuquerque holding .positlone where they might steal money an3 possibly get out of the territory.

BURKED COURT HOUSE WAS HISTORIC BUIIDIN6 Santa l-V Comity's Hlructure th ' Scene of Many Fiuiuwg Trial lu Years I'ast. Santa Fe, N. M., Feb. 8. One of the most disastrous fires in New Mex- ,11,1 von take It nrl1" capital 111 years, completely ae- riiuycu inc niiiiusoii.e isuma J? e county court house on Saturday right. . entailing a loss estimated at $75,000, with Insurance of but $20, 000. The tire is believed to have been caused by u defective Hue. The blaze tvas discovered shortly after 8 o'clock by u passerby who gave the alarm, but the fire depart ment was slow in arriving and by the time a stream of water was turn ed on the flumes almost the entire second floor was ablaze. In two hours the handsome edifice was completely .gutted and nothing but the walls are left standing. The court house was constructed elmost twenty-live years ago. The bnard of commissioners had a Ger man architect prepare the plans for the edifice and because of Its great cost a scandal was created at the time. For years it was the finest court house in all the Southwest, and was the scene of many famous trials in the parly days, when It was used as a federal court house for entire northern New Mexico. Uy heroic work of a volunteer brigade . the court records were saved and the vaults In the various office., resisted the heat, thus pre venting the destruction of valuable papers which it would have been Im possible to replace. Recently the county commission ers on the plea of economy cut down the insurance several thousand dol lars, hence the loss was greater than would have been the case ordinarily. It develops that the bonds issued ror the construction of the court house have never been paid and it is rumored that the bond holders will seek to s-eure the insurance on the building. In this event it will prob ably be some years before the county will have another court bouse. In the meantime it Is expected that the sessions of the territorial district and federal courts will be held In the su I rem.- chambers in the capital or in the federal building IHSTIt)M'.I) 'IO.

Toklo, Feb. 8. The adoption by the lower hou.-e of the Nevada legisla ture of an anti-Japanese resolution was received here with indifference.

Washington, Feb. S. The New York American toduy prints the re sults of a poll taken among member of Congress on the question of Imme diate admission to the union of New Mexico and Arizona. The poll nhows the following results; The House, practically unanimous In favor of passing the statehood bill. In the Senate, Heveridgii Is the only senator who say he will oppose the bill, .six members say they want to see the bill before they commit them selves. All the others favor Imme diate statehood. The results of this poll place the statehood cause In even a better light than its strongest supporters believed. With only Heverldito in the Semite opposing Immediate admission, it is oeneved that sufficient pressure can be brought to bear to have the com mittee on territories, of which he Is cnairmnn, report the bill without de lay. In that event, the attitude of ih senators is favorable to the Immediate passage of the bill. The It who it pressed a desire to Bee the provisions of the act before thev b:ivp an in. in.
