Moving Library.
The 11,000 volumes of the territorial
law library in the capitol will be mov
ed to the new library room in the
addition to the capitol, Monday morn
ing. That is, the work will then be
commenced, for the task may require
some time. Many book cases needed
for the books have not yet arrived,
and the books will probably be stack
ed up until they do. The new li
brary room is splendidly lighted in
day time by 16 windows, and at night
by 13 chandeliers of 5 lights each. The
room is 60 by 90 feet and will prove
of great service to lawyers who wish
to consult the books at their disposal.

Mass of People Acclaiming His
Majesty Panic Stricken and
Malaga, Spain, Jan. 7. 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.
Five Car Loads of Beans Shipped
Homesteaders Are Sticking to
Their Claims.
Stanley A. Foutz, attorney at Wag
on Mound, who was in Santa Fe to
day on land office business, says that
Wagon Mound is growing right along
and all that it needs is the county
seat, which however, Mora is not yet
ready to surrender. The homeseek
ers who have taken up almost every
quarter section around Wagon Mound
are sticking to their land. Most of.
them raised good crops last season
despite the drouth. Only recently,
five carloads of beans were shipped
from Wagon Mound, several car loads
coming to Santa Fe. The beans com
mand five cents a pound f. o. b. at
Wagon Mound and the farmers aver
age 800 to 1,200 pounds an acre. The
new opera house is almost completed
at Wagon Mound, and several other
new buildings are going up. The
town is growing in population and the
amount of business transacted.
Sellers of Protection Dispensed Some
Gratis at High Noon Blaze
The spectacle of fire insurance
agents fighting fire was seen at high
noon today when the fire alarm turned
in by W. H. Goebel brought out scores
of people to the rear of the premises
owned by the First National bank on
the east side of the plaza.
The agents were Carl A. Bishop,
of the O. C. 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 volunteer firemen were
prompt in answering the call and
were on hand ready to lend assist
ance. 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.
Grocer Emptied Flour Into What Hd
Thought Was Sugar Barrel
But Arsenic Instead,
San Antonio, Texas, Jan. 7. Six
deaths have occurred and many resi
dents of the village of Telfener, Vic
toria county, are ill as the result of
eating poisoned bread. Several days
ago, the village grocer poured sev
eral sacks of flour into a sugar bar
rel. One of the first customers was
Joe Brown, a negro. After the morn
ing meal, the entire Brown family
became ill, two children dying that
night. Since then four others died
in the town. The analysis showed
that the flour contained arsenic. How
the poison got into the flour has not
been determined.

Former Secretary of Treasury
Leslie M. Shaw Was
Xew York, Jan. 7. The Carnegie
irust Company was closed this morn
ing by the state superintendent of
banks. It has a capital of $1,.".i'p.oiiu
and deposits of $10,0un.0nO. Ti
st.aition was in serious trouble in
the panic of 1 1)07 and has never fully
recovered. Its late presidem, Mr.
Dickinson, died last year under pecu
liar circumstances.
Its Paper Was Good.
Philadelphia, Jan. 7. Former Sec
retary of the Treasury Leslie M.
Shaw, who is now a resident of this
city, is surprised to learn that the
bank of which he was formerly pres
ident had closed its doors. He said
the trust company's" paper was all
good when he retired as president and
he had inside information that there
had not been more than $2,000 loss
on paper then held by the bank.
Shaw RetirediFrom Presidency.
Xew York, Jan. 7. The institution
was re-organized in 1907 and after
the rtetirement of Leslie M. Shaw
from the office of secretary of the
treasury he became its president. His
connection with the bank ceased af
ter a few months however, because
of differences with the other officers
of the Institution.
Liquidation on Stock Exchange -
"Mow Vnrlr Tnn 7 The nntiro nf I
suspension brought a large crowd of
depositors around the bank hut they
quickly melted away after reading
the suspension notice on fhe doors.
The suspension caused considerable
liquidation on the Stock Exchangs,
but the decline was not large.
Depositors Will Be Paid in Full.
New York, Jan. 7. The Carnegio
Trust Company, was one of the larg
est banking institutions in the city
but it often had been reported in a
shaky condition and the suspension
hardly caused a ripple in the financial
district. The bankers said that de
positors will be paid in full.
Aviator Masson Reported Lost Alight
ed Twelve Miles From San
Los Angeles, Calif., Jan. 7. Dider
Masson, the French aviator who left
here this morning in a biplane to car
ry newspapers to Pomona and San
Bernardino, sixty miles from Los An
geles, is lost somewhere in the moun
tains. He failed to reach Pomona and
was seen steering the machine over
the San Jose hills, miles out of his j
course. Hundreds of persons in au
tomobiles are searching for the avia
tor. Alighted for Repairs.
San Bernardino, Jan. 7. A tele
phone message from Rochester, 12
miles west of here, says that Aviator
Masson landed there shortly aftef 9
o'clock to repair his biplane and re
new the oil supply.
One or Two Prominent Councilmen
Are on List, it is Said, But
Matters Not.
Those who have not paid their road
tax have a surprise in store for them,
but not a very pleasant one as the
city attorney has been given their
names and there is going to be some
thing doing in court.
Mayor Seligman is determined to
collect from every one or from no
one and as many have paid their
road tax. the others will be allowed
to explain In court" why they have
not. "come through."
It is amusing to note that one or
two prominent councilmen are repre
sented on the list of non-payers sentj
to the city attorney so it is said on
good authority.

President Taft Revives Project for

London. Jan. 7. The project of re

arbitration treaty on
the subject of which President Taft
is sounding the Senate committee on
foreign relations, attracts little inter
est h"te. Undoubtedly the British
government would meet the United
States half way. The general feel
ing however, is that the 'Senate may
block the plan and English statesmen
are not anxious for the repetition of
the experience which was had with
the llay-Paunceforte treaty.

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.

be no fight, it Is understood now, eith

Democratic circles who were opposed
to the constitution principally be
cause of the absence of direct legis

to get this, and whatever other modi
