lies just across the track from the Palm

city to that place is lined with flames and

of smoke and cinders, and burning
brands are falling in showers. A dense
pall of smoke also hangs over Portland.
There has beeu no rain for two months

The Thompxiin Spring. Mtohbera.
Dknvkii, Aug. lli. A telegram dated
Moab, Utah, was received here tu-day
from officers in pursuit of the Thompson
springs train robbers. Moab is on the
Grand river near the Coloiado Hue. and it
is supposed that the lohL-ers are headed
lor the San Jir.n country. This lends coloi
to the belief that the gang who committed
the robbery are the same men who made
a descent upon tho Tell uride bank in broad
daylight some six w eeks since and curried
oil' what money they could lay their hand.
upon. Tho descriptions of the two gangs
also tally in many important particulars,
and it is altogether probable that they are
the same.
A numberof theRio Grande company's
special agents were sent down into the
li.iiin country this morning in the hope of
heading oil' the Hoeing robbers if possible.
With these men ahead of them and Mar
shal Frank's bloodhounds behind them
there is little hope for their escape if they
are in that sectiot. of the country.

El Paso.ms were muchly worked up
yesterday morning w lieu informed that
water had been shut oil from all places in
tho city except hotels and saloons. It
was generally known that there was hut
little water in the Rio Grande. Still the
public gave but little thought to the sub
ject, being confident that their friend the
Rio Grande would supply all the water
needed. But their confidence was mis
placed. The great international Btream
that has been made famous in song and
poetry is a stream no longer. The bed
of the river is there ; but that is all. The
wuter has been taken out by those above
us. Yesterday morning a Times reporter
met Mr. Watts, superintendent of the
waterworks, and askei him -what he
intended to do. Mr. Watts said.
"This is a hard question. We are dig
ging for water in the bed oi the river and
have gone dow n fifteen feet without any
encouraging results. 1 thought the seep
ago would be suilicient to supply us for
several weeks; but 1 do not find it so. In
tho morning I suppose wo will find it
necessary to shut oil' all water, except the
supply to the lire plugs. I do this for the
protection of our property owners, for
should we get left without water, all fire
insurance policies would be canceled.
But it is my opinion that w e w ill not have
to resort to such extreme measures, as 1
believe that wo will Ibid plenty of water
a little further down."
This illustrates the great necess'ty ot
having a reservoir for the storage of the
Hood waters of tho Rio Grande. The gar
dens and orchards in and around El I'aso
are parched and dried up. In the valley
below El Paso the people nro actually

El Paso Times, Kith.
Dr. George Vasey, chief botanist rep
resenting the department of agriculture,
arrived in Santa Ee a few days ago on i.
mission which has long interested a great
many of the New Mexican's readers.
As heretofore stated, ids mission was foi
the purpose of locating tho government
agricultural experimental station iVr
which it was long ago announced con
gress had provided, granting an appro
priation of $15,000 to each of the states
and territories. It seems now, however,
that a great blunder has been mad?, and
that, as usual, the territories will be Icfi
in the lurch. The following is sent out
from Washington in the press dispatches:
"Eirst Comptroller Matthews lias deci
ded that the' appropriation of Si;(!:j,0uo
made for agricultural experiments sta
tions can be used for the benefit only of
ihe stations for which tho estimates were
made, namely, $15,0J0 each for stations
in each of twenty-nine states and the ti r
ritory of Dakota, at agricultural depig
ment, and that no part of the appropi;a
i ion can be Used in tho establishment of
such stations in anyof the territories with
the exception of Dakota, that being the
only one included in the estimates upon
which the appropriation was based."
Dr. Vasey is at present in tho Mesil a
valley, where ho went to look over the
field there with the view of selectingasite
for tho New Mexico station, under the
impression that tho flu.UUU from the
national treasury was available for this
and ull other territories.
There are now forty-six agricultural
experiment stations in the United States,
emploving over ii7o trained men iu the
prosecution of experimental inquiry. The
government appropriates ubout ii(iU0,U.jU
a year for the carrying on of this work,
ido.OOO being paid to each state. It is
really a most unfortunate circumstance
Hint "the territories are to bo left out just
at tliis vital period in the agricultural his
tory of the west.

and organizations of railroad employees
asking them to co-operate with the com
mission in securing information bearing
upon the relations between the railway
corporations and their employes. Tlie
railroads are requested to state if an in

is provided for employees on which they
have a right to draw in caseof sickness or
accident, or from which payment may be
mado to their families in case of death.

The local U. S. land olfice to-day ren
dered another decision in the last of the
Cooper contest cases. This was the
case of the United States against Katie
Cooper, daughter of J. W. Cooper, whose
case was decided yesterday. Miss Cooper
made a pre-emption filing in he own
name for 1 GO acres of land near her
father's place on the upper Pecos. The
land is covered with valuable pine timber,
but Is also rich farming land. About two
years ago Timber Agent Virden investi
gated Miss Cooper's claim and renortedto
the genera) land ottice that the law was
being violated by tho Coopers in taking
timber from the land and that the filing
had been made forthepurposeof securing
the valuable timber and should be can
celed. The commissioner of tho general
land office held the entry for cancellation
and ordered a hearing to determine the
character of the claim and the land. The
hearing was held at the local land ottiL'e
last summer, but their being no receiver
here the decision has been delaved.
The decision just rendered sustains the
nre-enintion filing of Aliss Cooper, and
recommends tho dismissal of the con
test, holding that the improvements
nlnced unon the land by the claimant are
shown to bo for more valuable than the
timber cut and removed therefrom; that
tho timber cut and removed has been
taken from land which was being pre
pared for cultivation, ami, therefore was
not unlawfully cut and removed.
