MEX VOL. 42. SANTA FE, N. M., TUESDAY, MAY 9, 1905. NO. 68. SATISFACTORY CONDITIONS Prevail in Lincoln County, Ac cording to Attorney General George W. Prichard. PRAISES JUDGE MANN Recent Term of Court There One of Best Ever Held Deputy Clerk Downs Very Popular. Attorney General George W. Pr'ch ard, who returned Sunday from Lin .? coin County, where he has attended the recent term of court and repre sented the Territory In several Im portant criminal cases, said thls'morn ing to a representative of the New Mexican that the term was very suc cessful and that Judge Mann has prac tically cleared the dockets, criminal and civil, of the Lincoln County court. "Judge Mann," said Colonel Prichard, "is a hard worker, convenes court ear ly In the morning and holds night ' sessions. Being a good lawyer, clea headed and not afraid of work he dis patches business very rapidly, much to the satisfaction of all concerned. The people of the county and especial ly those who had business in his court have become very favorably in. pressed with his ability, promptness efficiency and high personal character, and are right well pleased that Ihev are In his Judicial district. Although he pushes business rapidly and re quires prompt attention on the part of the members of the bar, yet hn is affable and courteous and never is in too great a hurry. The term of court Just closed In that county was one of the best ever held there and the tax payers and people generally are var ? well satisfied with its results. Deputy Clerk Charles P. Downs, who officiated, in the absence of Captain David J. Leahy, at the desk, Is very popular and an efficient, courteous an i painstaking official. He knows his business and duties and acts accord ingly. I am greatly pleased to say that this term, although quite a lengthy one, was as satisfactory and as well ordered a term of court as I have ever attended during my twenty five years of practice of law in the Territory, and I think I have atten-ied a good many sessions of the courts. ' Colonel Prichard thinks that from an agricultural and stock raising standpoint, the farmers, orchard Ists and stock men of Lincoln County vill have nothing to complain of this year, He said: "There has been an abun.l ance of water and this promises to b the case during the summer and fall months. The ranges and mountain sides are green and the finest of grass is seen wherever the eye turns. There has been some loss of live siock during the recent cold weather, but, at the lamb crop was so great, this wl'l not prove of any material or serious - consequence to the sheep owners. Wool is high and sheep and lambs aie selling at uigh prices. This means prosperity to the men engaged in the sheep raising industry. Cattle and horses are doing well. Angora goats, of which Lincoln County has quite a number, have suffered a little during the recent cold weather, but the loss will not be of any consequence. Mo hair is selling at high figures and the Angora goat breeders of Lincoln County are increasing the number cf their flocks and are prospering. Cattle are doing well and are bring ing higher prices than they have for years. While on account of the floods and high water several of the agri cultural valleys and sections of the county have suffered during the past year, yet It looks as if the farmers would more than even up this year by bountiful crops of the best of cereals, alfalfa and fruit. Upon the whole, I believe that the conditions in Lincoln County have never been better since 1 went to White Oaks to live 10 years ago. Mining Is also looking up and, In my opinion, there is more development . work going on and more miners are employed now in the mines and pros pecting In that county than there have been for years."

Among the acquisitions contemplated is the Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek Railway. Tneae plans will cause a re grouping of railroad interests over a large territory in the southwest. 8TRIKE THREATENS TO 8PREAD.

TO DEMAND jKAjfSASTOWN AID OF ALLY! ' DEVASTATED Russian Opinion is That Japan Will Ask Fulfillment if Britain's Obligations. - IF TOGO IS DEFEATED And That the Cry of Violation of Neutrality is Simply a Pretext Upin Which to Fall Back in Emergeney. By One of Most Disastrous Tor f nados in History of Sun ; r flower State. TWENTY-FOUR KILLED St. Petersburg. May 9. The Japan ese threats against France arenot taken very seriously here. Russian authorities continue to maintain, that Admiral Rojestvensky has not over- steuned the limits of neutrality, in view of the excited state of the Japs over the possibility of the fruits of their previous land and sea successes heine swent away. Japans protests are considered quite natural but her attitude towards France Is regarded as a blunder. The interests ot Japan could not be served, according to the opinion here, by the extension of hos tilities unless Admiral Togo is beaten in which case it is net -doubted that Japan will use the pretext of French violation of neutrality to demand a ful fillment of Great Britain's obligations as her ally. The opinion is held in some nuarters that It is exactly tms contingency which Japan has in view. Popular Feeling Runs High. Tokio. May 9.

Santa Fe Officials Claim That Lack of Good Water is Cause of Much of Freight Congestion. Trinidad, Colo., May 9. Rumors which have been in circulation that the Santa Fe Railway on this division is in a hole with reference to its mo tive facilities, and that the conges tion of freight on the road is due to the fact that the engines are in such condition that it is Impossible to take them out of the round house, are vig orously denied by officers of the road. Some of the railroad men say, howev er, that many of the engines have not been overhauled for weeks, and that they die on the road, necessitating that they be sent back to the shops. It Is also asserted that the officials of the road are not trying to haul any thing except passenger trains and per ishable freight, and that even at this train crews have been obliged to work from twenty-six to thirty-six hours at a stretch. The Marsh Bridge Com pany, which Is building the Commer cial Street bridge, in this city, is having trouble with the road because the sand and cement Is being held at La Junta. One of the superintendents of the company said this morning that they have not sufficient sand to build the piers, and claim that they have five cars of sand at La Junta that have been tied up there for five weeks. He says that the company has told him that the strike of the bollermak ers and machinists has prevented the overhauling of the machinery and that It is in bad shape. Officio 'a of the road claim, however, th K ne water famine is largely respor e for the lack of engines. They t ert that the alkali water which must be used, eats out the boilers and causes them to leak. It is further claimed that the road is hauling everything that is giv en to It.
