ced a bitter attack on allowing any

rnnvn to abolish the entire military

Major Palen appeared on behalf of
tho Deaf and Dumb Asylum and the
committee amended the bill so as to
give that institution a levy of .10 of a
mill and a deficiency appropriation of
$800. .
Mr. Hawkins offered an amendment
to appropriate $1,000 to print 500 copies
of the session, laws of 1899-1901 In En
glish and in one volume, which was
adopted. These are to be sold at cost
by the secretary of the territory. '
Mr. Hawkins also presented the fol
lowing which was adopted: "No funds
now on hand from the sale of lands
belonging to any institution shall be
covered Into the treasury and proceeds
from the future sals of lands for the
miners' hospital, Institute for the blind
and reform school, shall not be covered
Into the treasury until $6,000 In addi
tion 'to the amounts above provided for
shall have been paid to each of said In
stitutions for the maintenance and
equipment thereof from the ' future
sales of land belonging thereto."
. Mr. Spiess moved to make the appro
priation for printing reports, postage
and contingent expenses of the super
intendent of public instruction $1,600 in
stead of $500 of which amount $1,000
shall be' paid from the school -land
funds. This was adopted.
Mr. Spiess also moved that the
amount- for postage, express, printing,
blanks, etc., for the auditor's office be
increased from $500 to $700 and this
was ordered.
The committee then rose and report
ed the bill as amended. On motion of
Mr. Martinez the report was adopted
and then by motion of Mr. Hughes the
bill was passed as amended.
The regular order was taken up and
Mr. Jaramillo moved that .the commit
tee on county and county lines be re
quired to make a report on Council Bill
No. 66 which he thought was the bill
to take Espanola precinct from Santa
Fe county and attach It to Rio Arriba
county. The bill takes all or precinct
16 of Santa Fe county and makes it a
part of precinct 7 of Rio Arriba eounty.
By a vote of 6 to 4 the report was or
dered. Messrs. Amado Chaves, win
can, Albright and Spiess voted no. Mr.
Albright as chairman of the committee
announced that he had no bill of that
number In his possession and It had
not been referred to his committee. An
Investigation showed that Council Bill
No. 66 relates to game and fish war
dens and Mr. Jaramillo investigated
and found the bill he wanted consider
ed was Council Bill No. 63, so he re
newed his motion on No. 63. The report
was ordered. Messrs. Fall and Martin
ez recommended the passage of the bill
and Mr. Albright recommended, that It
be tabled indefinitely. The minority re
port was tabled and the majority re
port adopted. Mr. Jaramillo said he
held a petition signed by. all residents
of Espanola precinct except one or two,
that the transfer be made and, the re
port that he had had the petition sign
ed here In Santa Fe was hot true as he
could prove from letters In his posses
sion. Mr. Fall said he would Support
the transfer because It was such a
pleasure to steal from Santa Fe county
as Santa Fe county had been stealing
from others for so many years. Mr,
Amado Chaves said he could clearly
.. iitm
see the majority was s"id-
that the bill would pass so he would
bow to the Inevitable and try to take it
with srood grace, but he wanted to reg
ister a protest on behalf of Santa Fe
county. The bill was then passed by 6
to 4. Messrs. A. Chaves, Duncan,
Al
briaht and Spiess voting against it
Mr. Hawkins Introduced Council nii
No. si. An act providing two addition
al members of the territorial board of
Mualization and making that body one
of seven members. As the. appropria
tion for the support of the board
nasaed. was $760 on the basis of
as
five
members, the bill was so amended as
to nib. thn airarorjrlatlon $1,000 , for
seven, and as amended was unanimous
ly nasaed under suspension of the rules.
The Council then adjourned until w

A STRIKE ON THE
WABASH IS LIKELY
President Ramsey is Not Disposed
to Give in to the Demands of
the Firemen's and Train
men's Unions But Has
Until Tonight to
Change.
Al INJUNCTION IS SERVED UPON
THE LEADERS OF THE EMPLOYES
St. Louis, March 3. President Ram
sey of the Wabash railroad, has until
noon to reply to the demands of. the
trainmen, yardmen and firemen on all
divisions of the system, except In Can
ada, for an Increase of wages ranging
from 12 to 15 per cent. Unless this de
mand is acceded to, there will be a gen
eral strike of 2,500 men, so the ultima
tum sent to President Ramsey declares.
When the compromise between the
management and the employes of the
Missouri Pacific, Iron Mountain, Mis
souri, Kansas and Texas St. Louis and
San Francisco and St. Louis South
western roads was recently entered In
to whereby a general Increase of 15 per
cent In wages was granted, President
Ramsey agreed to a similar advance on
the western division. He declined,
however, to pay more on the divisions
east of the Mississippi river than was
given by other roads for the same ser
vices. '
AN INJUNCTION SERVED.
St. Louis, Mo., March 3, United
States Marshal Morrisey thls afternoon
served writs of injunction on the tnem
bers"of the commlttees'representlng the
trainmen's and firemen's organizations,
which have a controversy with the Wa
bash railroad, and havo announced that
a strike is to be called at five o'clock
this afternoon unless a favoroble reply
to demands is received from President
Ramsey. The injunction was issued by
Judge Elmer B. Adams, in the United
States circuit court, at the Instance of
the Wabash Railroad Company, and it
restrains the members of the commit
tees and all other employes of the com
pany from Interfering in any manner
with the operation of the road,
At the request of President liamsey
this morning the committees of Wabash
firemen and trainmen nave moaiuuu
their demands so that if a reply should
not be made at noon, he is given until 6
clock further to consider the matter oi
general advance in wages.
ernor's offlce. Consent was given and
the amendment- was presented. Mr,
Fall said the item had been left out by
the committee because the impression
seems to prevail that the governor did
not want the fund. Mr. Spiess said he
thought the governor ought to have it
whether or not as the governor's office
Is the poorest paid office in the terri
tory. ; Mr. Hawkins said the criticism
of the Item in the past was unfounded
and there Is more need every year for
the executive to go in person to Wash
ington. Mr. Hughes said the governor
had npt used any of the $3,000 appro
priated at the last session and saw no
neneasitv for incurring criticism ' for
two years if the governor does not de
sire the money. Mr. Amado cnaves
said it was necessary to have the ap
propriation so that the governor might
use lt lf necessary. He stated that the
governor being a careful man, had not
used a cent of the money of the terri
tory where not necessary. The amend
ment was adopted. . " ' ""
Mr. Plnard from the committee ; on
Insurance, reported Council .Bill No. 29
and recommended that It be passed as
amended by striking out Section 3. The
bill regulates the filing of annual state
ments by insurance companies and Is
for other purposes. Mr. Jaramillo mov-
ed the adoption of the report and this
was done.

THE SENATE.
Washington, March 3. At 11 o'clock
today the senate entered upon the last
legislative day of the 57th congress.
There will be no adjournment until 12
clock tomorrow, when the congress
expires by limitation.
A resolution was adopted continuing
until the next regular session the stan
ding and select committees. - The con
ference reports on the. sundry civil bill
was agreed to. Mr.' Hoar called the con
ference report on the bill to protect the
president. Mr. Bacon of Georgia, de
clared that the alleged conference re
port is a bill, which, with the exception
of one single sentence, had never been
read in the senate. The bill, he said, is
far-reaching in its character and is
absolutely subversive of the fundamen
tal principles upon which the govern
ment is founded. Replying, Mr. Hoar
insisted that the conference report was
the senate bill in its entirety with the
exception of the matter pertaining to
anarchists.
The program in the senate for the
xinsinir dav la to take a recess at 6
clock until 9 o'clock tomorrow. Be

THE HOUSE.
Washington, March 3. When the
house reconvened at 11 o'clock this
morning, the prospect was that it
might remain In continuous session un-
tnmnrrow noon. Despite the fact
that the session last nignt was pro
longed until midnight, there was a
fairly large attendance on the floor and
the galleries were well filled. As soon
as Speaker Henderson called the house
to order, Mr. Richardson, the minority
leader, attempted to make the point of
no quorum, but the speaker recognized
Mr. Payne to demand the ayes and
nays on the pending question coming
over from last night, the adoption of
the conference report on the Immigra
tion bill. Mr. Richardson insisted that
his point was good, but the speaker
over-ruled him and when the Demo
cratic leader appealed from the deci
sion he declmed to entertain the ap
peal on the ground that It was dilatory.
The report was then adopted 197 to 1?.
The presentation of the conference re-
mri nn a nrtvatft oenslon bill was
made the occasion for some good na-
tured political chaffing. Mr. Mfera of
Indiana, said if the Republican parly
was the good friend of the old soldiers
It professed to be, the house managers
wouia bring In a rule to adopt confer
ence reports on the remaining pens'0"
bills "en bloc." " " '

Section $ which requires that no nre

all Rome was on the alert showing the
most unusual animation and interest In
celebrating the twenty-fifth antlversary
of tho coronation of Pope Leo XIII.
Vast crowds gathered around St. Peter's
and when the doors opened there was
an indescribable struggle in which those
present forgot all rules of holiness in
the effort to reach the interior of the
sacred edifice. Numbers of women had
their gowns ruined and some had
to be carried away in a fainting
condition, After hours of fatiguing
waiting the majestic procession began
to appear, A few minutes after eleven
thn Pope was brought in on a new se Ha
gestatorla, carried by twelve men. They
appeared more than human and seemed
more like white spirits as they moved
1 heir hands slowly in benediction. Vra
found silence fell over the multitude as
the Pope performed mass, and after
benediction retired. It is estimated that
75,000 people, Including about 1,000
Americans, were present.

COLONEL R. M, FOREE, OF SANTA FE,
IN CHARGE OF THIS GREAT ENTERPRISE
The New Mexican has received a re
cent number of the Sentinel published
at Shelbyvllle, Shelby county, Ken
tucky, in which most complimentary
mention is made of the visit of Colonel
R. M. Foree of this city, that county be
ing his former home, the Sentinel says:
"We were paid the very great pleas
ure during the past week of meeting
and commingling with Colonel Robert
M. Foree, of Globe, Arizona, who was In
Shelbyvllle from Friday night to yes
terday morning, shaking hands with
and meeting his old friends. Colonel Fo
ree will visit in Frankfort, Winchester
and Richmond for a few days, after
which he will go east on business con
nected with his extensive mining oper
ations. FIRST VISIT HOME.
"This is Colonel Foree's first visit to
his old home for slxten years and to say
that his welcome was most cordial is
expressing it mildly. As soon as his ad
vent here became known his numerous
friends of old days flocked in to meet
him and the Colonel's reception can
only be described as a perfect levee.
Since he went to the far southwest,
Colonel Foree has achieved fortune as a
mine owner and operator. He is presi
dent of the Arizona-Colorado Copper-
Belt and Gol3 Mining and Milling Co.,
which possesses valuable and extensive
holdings near Globe, Arizona.
"Colonel Robert Foree is not only a
Kentuckian, of whom all Sheiny coun-
tians are proud, nut sneiDy um
clalmB him for her own and is therefore
interested in his success. As president

of the Arizona-coioraao i;opper-xBiu

at the head of a magnificent enterprise.

furnished It by a special correspondent
who recently Inspected the property:
VALUABLE PROPERTY HOLDINGS.
"The Arizona-Colorado Copper-Belt
and Gold Mining and Milling Company
owns seventeen mining claims, em
bracing an area of over S40 acres in a
compact body, known as "The De Class
Group" and located three miles from
the center of the town of Globe,- Ari
zona, by a level wagon road.
"Globe is situated in the southwestern
part of Arizona at the terminus ot the
Gila Valley and Northern railroad, has
a prospect of two more railroads, and
has about 4,000 inhabitants, exception
ally good schools, .churches, water
works, electric light plant, ice plant,
two strong hanks. The First National
and Thelnera and Merchants', two
good newspapers. The AriaonU Silver
Belt and the Globe Times, a number of
of able lawyers and ministers of the
gospel, skilled physicians, three large
able lawyers and ministers of the
retail stores, two livery stables, good
hotels and restaurants, two lumber
yards, well regulated liquor houses,
wagon and carriage business, merchant '
tailors and barber shops, bakeries and
steam laundry, several fine drug stores,
good hardware houses and blacksmith
shops, clothing stores, one nicely ar
ranged public Swimming pool, well con
ducted brass band, refined society and
the winter climate is admirable. Globe
is the seat of government of Gila coun
ty and has a substantial stone court
house, and the officers of the county
and town are men irreproachable In
their official capacities, and the people
orderly and law abiding.
RIf'H MINES ARE NEAR.
"Recurring to the Arizona-Colorado
Copper-Belt and Gold Mining and Mill
ing Company., its property Is only a
little over a mile from the mining prop
erties of the Old Dominion and United
Globe companies and in the same cop
per belt with these two largely devel
oped and rich mines. An extract
from the Arizona Silver Belt, In part,
states: "In area the Globe copper belt
exceeds any other in the western states
and territories. Its boundary limits are
well defined, marked here and there by
mines and prospect shafts. That the
original (or sulphide) ores would be
found at- a reasonable depth Is a fact
demonstrated by the discovery of sul
phide ore in the deeper mines here at
Globe at a depth of 1,000 feet. It has
been claimed that these same deep
mines, which have produced millions of
dollars from the oxidized ores are only
tn their In'uney, and rutting into-the
sulphide zone this will undoubtedly be
proven, ns the large mines are now pie
pared to continue sinking on down into
the zone as far as modern machinery
and human Ingenuity will permit. Sur
face mining has paid well, but deep
mining is paying better. There Is not
another mining camp In the world
where the production equals that of
Globe with the same amount of devel
opment."
CENTER OF THE BELT. ,
'The property of the Arlzona-Colora-
do Copper-Belt and Gold Mining and
Milling Company is, as near as can be
reckoned, In the center of the great
copper belt known to exist in Gila
county. The development on this com
pany's property consists of a prospect
ing shaft sunk for purpose of ;demon-
stratlng the property; this shaft was
"sunk on the 'Little Beauty' claim and
is 153 feet deep, and at that depth the
conditions and indications being such
that the company felt warranted In
sinking a big, double compartment
shaft for a working shaft. The big
shaft is now being sunk at a point about .
twenty-three feet west from the pros
pecting shaft, and where several veins
appear to form a junction, and when
the big shaft reaches the water level,
the large bodies of ore will be encoun
tered. Besides the prospecting and big
shaft the 'Little Beauty and Ida May
which' join end lines, each has a shaft ,
about twenty feet deep, and in ore
there is one tunnel 135 feet long run on
the vein In the 'Commerce' claim, and
one cross-cut tunnel- 200 feet in the
'Baltic' claim. The property Is now be
ing developed in three places, the cross
cut tunnel Is being run In order to cut a
big vein- at a depth from which sam
ples of ore from the surface were taken
that run $39 In gold, 9 per cent copper
and 408 ounces In silver to the ton. The
Dunkirk claim has two shafts,, one ten
and the other twenty feet deep, also the
Franklin claim has two shafts of a like
depth.
MANY METALS FOUND. .
The Judge, Exchange, Emblem, Cam
eron, Virginia, Kentucky, Maryland,
Illinois, Beacon, SunBhine and Nellie
M. have each one shaft ten feet deep.
Ore from the Nellie M. carries gold, sli
ver, tin and uranium, but as yet these
values are not large, but with depth
the Nellie M. ore will, of course, ln-
crease In value. Ore from the prospect
ing shaft run from IS to 30 per cent cop
per, several dollars in gold, sliver ana
one test gave 26 per cent copper and $20
in gold - to the -ton. - Some of the or
would run as high as $0 per cent copper.
The Commerce ore runs high In copper
and carries good gold and silver values.
Also the Franklin ore runs well, and
the Baltic has one ten foot shaft in
very fine ore. No ore from rest of the
claims has been tested. Several of the
claims nearest the big shaft have sev
eral large veins and stringers running
through them and showing on the sur
face, and the consensus ot opinion la
that at true water level these veins and!
stringers unite and form one mammoth
body of ore. It should be borne In-mlnd
that the company's property not only
runs high In copper, but also runs well
In gold and silver and some of the veins
run high In lead. It would be difficult
for the mind- to conceive ot a hetter
