The Compromise Measure on Statehood Bobs Up
Again and Some Hope is Expressed by the
Republicans That it Will Pass
Before March 4
ITS SUCCESS WILL DEPEND ON
THE ATTITUDE OF DEMOCRATS
Washington,' Feb. 21. The senate re
sumed its sitting again at 11 o'clodk
with the doors closed and with ThurS'
day's session proceeding. The presid'
ing officer had scarcely taken his seat
when the point of no quorum - was
made. A sufficient number of senators
soon responded and Mr. Morgan w
about to proceed with his canal speech
when there was a general request on
the part of the senators to be allowed
to transact some morning business
Senator Cullom yielded to this demand
and it soon became apparent that a
very large volume of this business had
accumulated.
Mr. Cullom then moved an open ses
sion of an hour for the transaction of
legislative business. There was no ob
jection and accordingly 20 minutes af
ter the beginning of the session the
doors were opened. The hour was giv
en up largely to the introduction of
bills and the making of committee re
ports. The business had not proceeded
far when Mr. Quay rose and said: "I
merely rise to make my usual request
with, I presume, the usual result, that
on Thursday the 26th of February, a
vote be taken on the omnibus state
hood bill and all amendments without
further debate." Messrs. Depew and
Nelson objected simultaneously, and
Mr. Quay took his seat with a wave of
his hand to Mr. Alger who bad yielded
the floor to him. A number of bills
were passed.
THE COMPROMISE AGAIN.
Washington, Feb. 21. The statehood
compromise, which is expected to un
lock the present tangle in the senate
and remove the blockade, proposes to
admit two states, one Oklahoma, ac
cording to Its present boundaries with
a proviso that Indian Territory shall be
added in 1906 when the treaty obliga
tions with the Indians will not be in
the way. The other Btate is to be com
posed of New Mexico and Arizona, un
der the name of Montezuma, with a
proviso that when the present territory
of Arizona has a population of 300,000
people it shall become a separate state
providing that the people of the terri
tory affected vote in favor of being di
vided from New Mexico, Sanator
Spooner has been entrusted with the
leiral Questions Involved, especially In
regard to the rights of Indian tribes In
Indian Territory. While this compro
mise will be acceptable to the Republi
cans there Is yet considerable doubt
about the Democrats and so far
as can be learned, they will oppose It
with vigor, which means defeat at this
stage of the session. It has been sug
gested that when the compromise plan

NOW
is formulated the Democrats may hold
a conference and if a majority should
agree to accept the bill, the minority
will yild. However, this is only con
jecture, but the men who are manage
ing the situation express hope that
some 9-srreement can be reached. The
effect upon the canal treaty will at
once be felt and Senator Quay and oth
er statehood men will not try to pro
long the debate on this measure. At
the same time, the senators served no
tice yesterday upon those who are pres
sing the treaty that Senator Morgan
should have full opportunity to present
his views and amendments to the trea
ty in an orderly manner and without
undue pressure. Senators Teller, Du
Dols ana Kawllns were especially em
phatic when making these declarations,
saying that even if the treaty had to
go over until after March 4, the Ala
bama senator should not be subjected
to undue pressure.
Mr. Mason gave notice that on Mon
day he would ask the senate to take
up the postoffice appropriation bill inv
mediately after the disposition of the
routine business. The senate then, on
motion of Mr. Cullom, resumed consid
eration of the Panama canal treaty in
executive session. When the senate
went into executive session for the sec
ond time, Mr. Quay again took the floor
and said he desired to present to the
senate certain reports but that he was
indisposed and therefore would like to
have them read by the clerk. There was
no objection and the reading clerk ac
cordingly began the reading of a long
report on the question of isthmian can
als, which Mr. Quay sent up.
THE HOUSE.
Washington, Feb 21. At the opening
of the session of the house today, Mr.
Hemenway of Indiana, asked unani
mous consent for the consideration of a
bill to exempt from taxation the prop
erty of the Daughters of the Revolution
in the District of Columbia. Mr. Moon
of Tennessee, objected, saying he would
continue to object to the consideration
of any bill by unanimous consent. Mr.
Fowler of New Jersey, then moved that
the house go into committee of the
whole to consider the currency bill and
pending that motion he asked that he
control the time for the bill and Mr.
Thayer of Massachusetts, against it. To
this Mr. Bartlett of Georgia, objected,
saying that -there was a difference of
opinion on the Democratic side con
cerning this question. The motion was
carried 137 to 95. Accordingly the house
went into committee, and Mr. Fowler,
chairman of the committee on banking
and currency, took the floor In support
of his bill.

FROM BELEN TO 6ALVEST0N.
Another Old Plan of the Santa Fe Which Is
Taking More Definite Shape.
A dispatch from Topeka says:
"Within the present year tho Santa
Fe Railway company will announce a
300 mile extension to connect Belen
N. M., with Galveston, Texas. Gen
eral plans for, this extension have
been already undo. It, will begin at
Portales and will connect with the Gulf,
Colorado and Santa Fu line probably at
San Angelo, Texas. San Angelo Is the
western terminus of the Gulf, Colorado
and Santa Fe. It Is practically decided
that the Santa Fa will continue its New
Mexico cut-off' eastward from Llano
Junction to Portales. This portion of
the work has been temporarily held up,
awaiting the outcome of the plan which
the Santa Fe had In mind for building
south from Dodge City to Liberal, and
either paralleling the Rock Island, or
securing trackage rights over the Rock
Island from Liberal to Llano Junction."
. A Jail Breaker Arretted.
James McDanfel, alias J. L. Stewart,
who escaped from the county jail at Al
buquerque last New Year's day, was
brought, back Wednesday morning from
Wlnslow, Ariz., where he was arrested

of 91,000, and made his escape with six
other prisoners. Be Is the fourth priso
ner to be captured.

SALE OF SILVER CITY SMELTER.
The American Consolidated Copper Company
Has Bought the Lena Smelter at
Lordsburg.
The last obstacle against the sale of
the Silver City smelter was removed
last week when the American Smelting
and Refining Company signed papers
which caused their lease on the same to
expire and left the Hearsts in a position
to sell. ' The plant was sold Thursday
to the Comanche Mining and Milling
Company. Many improvements are
contemplated and the company expects
to produce most of the ore required for
the furnace, although custom work will
be done. The smelter has a capacity
for treating 250 tons per month.
The Silver Cell mine, at Plnoa Altos,
has been put In running order recently
and the Dimmlck Brothers are turning
out silver bricks in quantities.
& new mill is in process oi erection ai
the mine of the Arizona Mining com
pany at Plnos Altos. This Is one of the
best producing mines at the camp.
Judge Ileming brought the good news
to Silver City, that a flow of water had
been encountered at the Dottotn oi ine
Neosho shaft, owned by tho Allesandro
Mining company. The now averages
10,000 gallons a day and the shaft will
be sunk deeper. A fifty-ton loacher will
be installed. This flow has exploded the
theory that water could not be had In
the Burro mountains at anv reasonable
depth and paves the way for new enter
prises.
Tne L,ena concentrator at ijorusuurg
has been sold to the Amorican Con
solidated Copper company at quite a
large consideration. B. L. Berkey of
the Berkey Mining Machinery company
of El Paso has Inspected tho property
preparatory to adding new machinery.
The presont production from tho iron
mines of Flerro and Hanover is 1,000
tons dally averaging 58 per cent excess.
A large part is shipped to Pueblo by the
Colorado Fuel and Iron and the rest to
El Paso for smelter flux.
FARMING PAYS IN THE SANTA FE VALLEY
Some Figures by Superintendent Clinton J.
Crandall That Are Startling Though True.
Santa Fe, N. M., Feb. 17, 1903.
Prof. James G. Halapleus,
Toledo,-Ohio.
Dear Sir; The Editor oj, the New
Mexican requests me to write you rela
tive to the success I have had in raising
vegetables on the Indian school farm
here. I have not retained the exact fig
ures or statistics, not supposing that
my observations would be required In
the future. Last summer I gave the
New Mexican the result In planting 3-4
of an acre of. onions; if I remember
aright, we raised about 15,000 pounds of
onions to the acre; what struck every
body hard was the fact that at the
price charged for onions In the city,
one acre would yield an Income of
about 1900. Lhad excellent success with
other vegetables. Carrots were raised
on the Indian school farm here weigh
ing 84 ounces each. An acre of carrots
would yield about 100 tons and cabbage
is equally as prolific. Give us the wa
ter and one acre of this soil together
with our climate and this is equal to
ten acres In any other state or place
that I know of, and I have lived In
many. I expect to sink a deep well at
the Indian school next summer, expen
ding 16,000, If necessary, attempting to
get artesian water. Respectfully,
' C. J. CRANDALL.

PURSUIT OF
BANK ROBBERS
Tracy Methods Have Been
Successfully Adopted by
Bill Rudolph and
Frank Lewis.
AGAIN MADE THEIR ESCAPE
Entire Town of Union, Missouri,
is in Arms and it Seems Im
possible That the Rob
bers Can Long Elude
Them.
St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 21. Special dls
patches to the Post-Dispatch indicate
that William Rudolph and Frank Lew
is, the Union, Mo., bank robbers, who
were located In a cabin near ltichview,
Ills., have again escaped and a posse of
citizens, in addition to that of Sheriff
Howe, is being formed to pursue and
capture them if possible. The entire
community is in arms. According to
reports from communities through
which the robbers, have passed, they
have adopted the Tracy tactics, intiml
dating farmers and threatening to kill
nny posse that may be sent In pursuit
They converse only with women and
children, from whom all - the details
concerning them have been learned ex
cept the general description given by a
hunter who encountered them in the
woods on Friday, They approach a
farm house and standing some distance
away call loudly until some one makes
his appearance. If it is a man, they
keep on talking to him until he comes
up closer and then they throw their
rifles down on hjm and order him to
leave the premises. Like Tracy they
accompany this order with a threat to
massacre the entire family if any at
tempt is made to summon help. In this
way they have obtained food. At one
farm house they found the farmer's
wife and children alone. They ordered
her to get breakfast and chatted freely
while she was cooking the meal. All
questions concerning themselves they
parried. The man supposed to be Ru
dolph stood on guard, while the other
ate, and Lewis then acted as picket.
ANOTHER SH00TIN6 AT RATON.
A Hospital Is Evidently Needed Three
Men
Were Seriously Hurt in the Affray.
A shooting affray occurred at Raton
at 5:30 Wednesday evening, and as a re
sult City Marshal Robert Kruger is seri
ously wounded, a negro nimed Bruce is
not expectod to survive the night, M.
Hendrie is suffering from a knife wound
and W. K. Prltzer Is under arrest
charged with the stabbing and shooting'
The shooting occurred on the platform
of the depot. The trouble originated In
Chihuahua, a village on tho outskirts of
Raton. Piltzer, who Is a Santa Fe
brakeman, in an altercation with the
women in one of the resorts at Chihua"
hua, drew a knife and threatened their
lives, claiming that they had robted
him. The women fled to Clark & Hen-
drie's saloon.
Prltzer followed, but was stopped by
Hendrie and told to leave. Pritzer
sprang upon Hendrie, who was unarmed,
and stabbed him in the neck, Inflicting
a severe wound. He then left the sa
loon and hurried to Raton, purchased a
revolver, and went to the depot with the
evident intention of boarding passenger
train No. 2. .
Bruce, a porter in Hendrie's saloon,
followed Prltzer to Raton and notified
the marshal, who, accompanied by
Bruce, went to' the depot. Pritzer was
standing on the platform when the mar
shal and Bruce approached from behind.
Kruger placed his band on Pritzer's
shoulder and told him that he was un
der arrest. Pritzer jumped to one side,
drew his revolver and emptied the six
chambers into the two men. Kruger
also brought his revolver into play and
bullets rained for several seconds.
Bruce, who bad turned to run when
the shooting commenced, is the most se
riously Injured, one bullet entering the
back between the shoulder blades and
lodging in his chest. Physicians state
that he cannot live.
Marshal Kruger was hit twice, one
bullet going through his upper lip and
coming out In the neck about three in
ches below the left ear. The other en
tered the left side and striking a rib fol
lowed it and came out at the back. He
is In a precarious condition and his re
covery is doubtful. Pritzer sustained
two flesh wounds, ouo in the right arm
and tho other in the breast. The bul
lets struck the breast bone and lodged
there. Hendrie will recover.

NEW MEXICO
SCHOOL OF MINES
Opportunities for a Practical and Theoretical
Course in Mining Engineering, Metallurgy
and Allied Sciences That Cannot be
Equalled at Any Other Scientific
School.
VALUABLE RECENT
ACQUISITION IN THE
SOCORRO SiHELTER
One of the neatest and most attrac
tive publications that has come to this
office is the brochure issued by the New
Mexico School of Mines at Socorro,
which contains the advance sheets of
the annual register relating chiefly to
the courses of study offered. The com
plete register will be Issued about May
1. The brochure was printed at the
School of Mines press and Is handsome,
attractive and well gotten up. The
cover Is artistic and the results from
putting out such a statement of the
resources and advantages of the school
cannot help but be satisfactory.
The board of trustees of the school
consists of Governor M. A. Otero and
Superintendent of Public Instruction J.
Francisco Chaves, ex-offlcio, Juan Jose
Baca of Socorro, president; C. T. Brown
of Socorro, secretary-treasurer; Cap
tain A. B. Fitch and F. C. Bartlett of
Magdalena, and J. E. Smith of Socorro.
The name of each member of the facul
ty is followed by a brief but compre
hensive sketch of his career.
The School of Mines was founded by
act of the legislature of 1889 and an
organization was effected under a sub
sequent act approved February 28, 1891.
Plans were at once adopted for the
buildings and early in 1892 p, circular
setting forth the aims of the school was
issued. The following year a president
was chosen and students in chemistry
were admitted, but the mining school
was not opened until the tutumu of
1895. The location of the institution at
Socorro was particularly fortunate In
that it renders easily accessible to the
students a large number of mines of all
kinds, smelters, Irrigation systems and
other engineering works. Many of the
most famous mines in the southwest
are within a few hours' ride of the
school. The surrounding country Is
rich in illustrations of geological for
LEGISLATIVE POINTERS.
It is probable that the assembly may
not hold sessions on Monday in order
to celebrate Washington's birthday,
which falls on Sunday, tomorrow.
Representative W. F. McCash of
Union county, never held public office
before. His present position as repre
sentative In the legislative assembly
from Union county is his first exper
ience in that line.
So far as the Council is concerned, the
American flag shall not be desecrated
In any manner and any Insult offered
the flag In New Mexico is punishable by
a fine of not to exceed WOO and Impris
onment not to exceed 109 days or both.
The bill Is by Mr. Duncan.
The Council bill to pay a bounty Of $2
for each coyote, wild cat or lynx killed
and $20 for each wolf, lobo, panther,
mountain lion or bear, was amended
yesterday so that levies shall be made
by the counties to pay the amounts al
ready owed for the animals already
killed.
Under the terms of the bill Introduc
ed by Mr. Martinez and passed by the
Council, justices of the peace will be
elected at the same time other county
officers are, beginning In November,
1904. Those elected at that election will
take their office on the first Monday in
February following, but after that the
term of office will begin on January 1,
following the election.
The bill Introduced in the Council
yesterday morning by Mr. Hughes to
provide for a more efficient quarantine,
is presented at the request of the Ter
ritorial Board of Health, and Is to give
that body power to quarantine more ef
ficiently In case ' of an emergency.
The cause of the bill Is the epidemic of
diphtheria which is now existing among
the Pueblo Indians.
Mr. Jaramlllo offered a sarcastic
amendment to the bill providing for
the stricter enforcement of the Sunday
law. Where it provides that sheriffs,
deputy sheriffs, constables and mar
shals shall Inspect saloons and gam
bling houses on Sunday and see that
they are closed, Mr. Jaramlllo wished'
to strike out all the officers named and
insert therein "Senator Beverldge."
Council Bill No. 68 which was passed
yesterday Is by -Mr. Hawkins, and pro
vides for a fine of $10 to $50 or Imprison
ment for not more than 60 days for
cutting, breaking or Injuring any ditch,
flume, pipe line or- : reservoir. Where
the line la used" to convey .water to any
mations and structures. The ideal of
the institution is the practical training
and directing of young men to take ac
tive part In the development of the
mineral wealth of the country and the
world. The natural surroundings of the
school create a mining atmosphere
which is not found in schools located
farther away from the mines and

be named Quay, in honor of the dlstin-
guished senator who Is making such a
determined fight on the omnibus state

retired to the ante-room to cool oflf, and
was agreeably surprised and probably
delighted by having one of the lady em
ployes throw her arms around him and
plant a kiss of encouragement and ap

charming friend. This Incident Is a
strong Incentive for other members of
the House to cultivate the fetching gift
of oratory. , ,' ;
