What is be Iieved"to"have been an attempt on the life of King Alfonso took place dur ing his brief visit here Thursday. The facts became known today. The king accompanied by Premier Cana lejas, General Azpar, minister of war, and Arias Miranda, minister of ma' rine, had arrived here en route for Melilla. At the railway station, his majesty was acclaimed by a great throng which joyously followed the carriage in which the king was driv en to the palace of the governor general. Just as the door of the pal ace swung behind him after he had turned and acknowledged salvos of applause, an explosion in the crowd outside drowned the cheering. Before the alarmed and stampeded mass fully realized just what had happened gendarmes had closed in about the spot from which the report arose. It was found that two persons had been slightly injured but no other damage was done. The official account of the incident says it was unimportant. A t-ivllian dropped a "pistol enclosed in a box." No further details were made public. Yesterday the king and party proceeded to Melilla in the royal yacht.

Only recently, five carloads of beans were shipped from Wagon Mound, several car loads coming to Santa Fe.

Watson & Com pany, who represents a dozen or more of the leading fire insurance com panies, and H. O. Snyder, superintend ent of the agents of the Mutual Life Insurance Company. So well did thev fight the flames, which started from hot ashes fanned by a south wind that they soon had the blaze under control.

The flames, however, were ex tinguished before they had a chance to spread from the fence and some debris in the back of the lot.

It was expected that the op: osiiion in this particular section of the city would be more pronounced than in other localities. Taking as a cr;:cnon these :;o4 voters, one-seventh of the voting population of the city, it is al ready evident that the sentiment, for the constitution Is overwhelming in this city, it is expect c-d that the canvassers will finish up the work in Precinct 20 today or tomorrow and the figures for the whole precinct, will be awaited with considerable inter est. The big force of canvassers is lo ing its work well, carefully and thor oughly and it is declared that, the total list of voters will be as nearly an accurate registration roll as it will be possible to secure. The voters are co-operating with the canvassers and in cases where they are not at I home, all are leaving their names and sentiments with members of the fam ily to be handed the canvasser. The job is being done in a workmanlike mant'e-- and the result of securing! a true registration list, in itself is a j most valuable one. I lndor Life and Indulgence in Intox.
