Nobleman.
New York, Moh. 2. The international

ding breakfast to whioh about 100 of the
wedding guests will be invited is to fol
low the ceremony, and the bridal couple
will shortly thereafter depart for their
home in France. The bride has $16,000,
000 in her own right. The bridegroom

BOSTON BRUISERS.
A Notable BlUKirinit Hatch In the
Athens of America Last Night.
Boston, Moh. 2. The Athens of Ameri
ca, the home of the late world renowned
champion slugger, John L. Sullivan, has
once more covered herself with glory.
The slugging match in this city last night
between Waloott and Smith was such a
dazzling success in the way of fierceness
and brutality that the 6,000 spectators
went to their respective homes happy and
satisfied. Fifteen terrific rounds were
fought and many hard blows were landed
by the combatants. Both were repeat
edly downed; both were badly punished.
The decision was a draw. Waloott un
questionably had the best of the fight
and would have gained the decision but
for the fact that it was a limited round
oontest. At the end of the second ronnd
it was good betting at six to ten that
Waloott would get the decision at the end
of the sixth round or earlier, but Smith
took a wonderful brace and suooeeded in
keeping his feet and responding to the
call of time until the end. It was a
slugging match from t,he very start and
at times there was danger that the polioe
would sf,op the Oontest, but, owing to the
presence of ' blue ooate, the referee kept
the men well in hand and made the mix
ups of short duration. - Both men were
in excellent oondition and a finish was
what the orowd looked for.

Southern Utes,
Washington, Mch. 2. Delegate Joseph,
of New Meiico, has had a conference with
Senator Faulkner, chairman of the senate
committee on territories, relative to the
bill for the admission of New Mexico.
He was assured by the senator that an
effort would be made to get the bill up,
and that he hoped to suoceed. Senator
Faulkner still thinks it may bs possible
to get a day for the consideration of the
New Mexico and Arizona bills, bnt says
that if au entire day can not be obtained
he will oall up the bills in the intermis
sions afforded between conference reports
on the appropriation bills.
A OOOD SCHEME.
Mr. Gallinger briefly addressed the sen
ate at the opening of the session yester
day in favor of a plan presented by the
Daughters of the Revolution that a copy
of the declaration of independence be
conspicuously displayed in every post
office, BEMAINS A DEMOOBAT.
Senator " MoLaurin, of Mississippi,
speaking last night of the proposed for
mation of anew party, said: "I am in
favor of the unlimited coinage of silver
at 10 to 1, but I am a Democrat, loyal to
my party, and I hope to see this accom
plished by the Democratic party. I will
not join Bay new party. The Demooratio
party is good enough for me."
8ILVEB AND BUOAK.
The senate passed the sundry civil ap
propriation bill, inoluding the item ap
propriating $5,000,000 for sugar bounties,
and the provision for a commission to rep
resent the United States ia the interna
tional monetary conference. The latter
feature brought out a wide difference of
opinion among the silver men of the
senate as to the advisability of partici
pating in an international conference.
Mr. Stewart (ev.) sought to nave cue
United States delegates instructed pot to
make any agreement short of a recogni
tion of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. This
was opposed by Mr. Woloott, who has al
ways heretofore co-operated with Mr.
Stewart on the silver question. Mr. Wol
oott severely arraigned the Nevada senator
for his intolerance on financial questions.
Mr. Stewart only commanded nine votes
for his 16 to 1 amendment, most of the
leading silver men, Democrats and Re
publicans, "voting against it.

The senate entered upon its final ses
sion to-day with the prospeot of sitting
continuously until Monday at noon.
There was a rush of private bills, as this

ants. Senator Call, of Florida, presented the
following telegram from Dr. Moreno, at
Tampa, Fla.: "Two American citizens,
Sanguilly and Aguirre, have been incar
cerated in Havanna. They, enter a pro
test and want to have the case investi
gated at once." Senator Call asked the
committee on foreign relations promptly
to communicate with the state depart
ment with a view to American interven
tion.' ; " -
DISPOSING OI APFBOPB1ATION BILLS.
Final aotion was taken confirming the
conference agreement on the fortifica
tions appropriation bill.
Senator Gorman, in charge of the
naval appropriation bill, out off the rush
of private bills by urging the need of the
speedy consideration ot this last o! the

vailed and the naval bill was taken up.
The first item caased a spirited debate.
As proposed by the committee the number
of extra seamen- to be enlisted by the
seoretary of the navy in times of emerg
ency wss reduced from 2,000 to 1,000.

American Citizen.
Chicago, Moh. 2. The Tribune has the
following dispatoh: "The United States
has determined that Honduras must com
ply with its demands for the punishment
for the murder of American oitizens.
Diplomatio means having failed, the
cruiser Montgomery has left Mobile, Ala.,

commander are there thoroughly to in
vestigate and, assist American Minister
Pierce M. B. Young in obtaining

in question was the murder of Charles
W. Benton, who purohased an estate near

tance from Trujilio, and lived there until

RIO GRANDE WATERS.
A Tale of Woe from Down the Vat
ley They Want Watey.
Washington; Mch. 2. Mr. Charles E
Weshe, acting United States consul at
Paso Del Norte, Mexico, has told in a
pathetic'-way through a report to the
state department some of the sufferings
of the people of -that section through
drouth brought on by the diversion of
the waters of the Bio Grande by the agri
oulturists of Colorado and New Mexico.
He recalls the fact that Mexico by
treaty consented to an equal share with
the United States of the waters of this
river, and shows how a vast traot of
Mexican land, which formerly produced
great crops, is now barren as a result of
the operations of the irrigation companies
in the upper river and tributaries in
Colorado and New Mexico. Attention is
called to the recommendation of Presi
dent Cleveland that a "mixed commis
sion be created with power to build a
great reservoir at Paso del Norte to store
the winter flood waters for use in irri
gating the lands on the lower river, which
for ten years has been made dry every
summer."
Arizona Camels,
San Francisco, Cal., Moh. 2. M. F.
Campbell, of the Gunsight mine, near the
line of southern Arizona, says the camels
of the desert, introduced many years ago
by Ben Butterwirth and now grown wild,
are increasing rapidly, now nnmbencg
800 or 100. The camels roam in lands be
tween the Gi!a and Colorado rivers. They
are kept in good condition by the fine
bench grass and are often killed and
palmed off for beef. ' They are often cap
tured for circus purposes and are easily
trained.
Political Party.
Saginaw, Mich., Mch. 2. Charles T.
Beatty, state president of the Amerioan
Protective association and national sec
retary, is in the city completing arrange
ments for a big convention of the Ameri
can Protective association to be held
March 12, 18 and 23. The prime object
of the convention is for the considera
tion of the proposition to form what is
to be known as the Independent Ameri
can party.
Mr. Beatty says: "We feel ourselves
strong enough now to form a new party.
We number over 100,000 men in Michi
gan, and this large membership will be
represented by about 800 delegates. The
question of forming a party will then be
discussed and decided upon. It is open
ly said here that the party will put n
presidential tioket in the field ne-t yeai.';'
A Queer silver Kplaode.
Ann Arbor, Mich., Moh. 2. President
Angell and the silver students attending
the state university have been involved
in a jangle over the use of the university
hall. A free silver olub embracing nearly
500 students has been formed, aed wanted
the hall, the largest in the oity, for vari
ous addresses by Senators Woloott and
Teller and Representatives Bland and
Bryan.
President Angell refused permission
on the ground that the regents had de
cided that no political meetings should be
held there. The students olaim a free
silver propaganda is not politics and
have all appealed to the president. They
assert that opposition to bi-metallism in
the faculty ia the real cause of the presi
dent's refusal.
DETAILS OF THE DISASTER.
Hallway Horror In Mexico Bodies of
the Dead Awaiting Official Inves
tigation Many of the Wound
ed Can Not Live.
City of Mexico, Mch. 2. The Mexioan
government has commenoed a rigid ex
amination of the train men and officials
of the Interoceanic railroad to fix the
culpability for the recent terrible railway
disaster. The engineer was John Neuffer
and the conductor wasJ.H. Steele, both
Amerioans.
The Jefe Politioo,of Tanango with some
mounted rifles had the dead bodies laid
out on the bank for identification on ar
rival of the releif train, and refused to
permit them to be brought to the city,
awaiting a complete official examination
at the soene of the wreok. - The bodies
were still lying there at noon yesterday,
when the regular train went by after the
wreck was cleared away.
Most of the dead will to-day be buried
in a great trench being dug along side of
the track. So far as ascertained ail the
killed and wonnded were of the lower
class. The looomotive engineer disap
peared bnt was afterward oaptured at
Chelae. He as well as the oonductor and
other train men are held as prisoners
pending official investigation. A number
of the wounded can not possibly live.
Conductor Steele made a dsolaration be
fore the judge and was allowed his liber
ty on his owu recognizance. Offioiala of
the road say that the wreck was caused
by the truoks of the tender slipping out
of place. The first coach on striking
them immediately left the track and was
telescoped by the seoond ooaoh, the re
maining coach piling on top.

SOME MORE HISTORY.
How it Happened that Confirmation
of the Executive Appointments
Was Secured.
The Governor and the Council Acted
Promptly to Take Advantage of an
Opportune Moment.
There seems to be some question in
the. public mind as to who organized and
planned the ooup whereby the executive
nominations were confirmed by the legis
'ative oounoil on Thursday of last week.
It has come to the New Mexican that Mr.
Felix Martinez, the self-constituted party
boss from San Miguel, is making loud
boasts as to his connection with this
clever pieoe of political legerdemain;
indeed, he has given it out that he was
the prime mover in the affair that se
cured this victory to Democracy. But
the cola steel ot truth finds no difficulty
in puncturing this olaim. The facts are
that Martinez was not "in it" at all. He
didn't even have an inkling as to what
was going on. His presence on the out
side of the oouncil chamber, with the
locked-out Republican members, at the
oritioal moment, was so noticeable and
his blank expression of countenance so
painfully apparent, that a group of
Democrats standing near, Florida county
men, observed his dilemma and ono of
them remarked, sarcastically, "that's where
Martinez belongs."
To ascertain the facts in the case a
New Mexican representative was com
missioned to call on President George
Curry. He said, in substance: "When it
became apparent to the six members of
the counoil who had voted to go into ex
ecutive session that the five Republican
members had walked out with a view to
breaking our quorum, we at once Bent
the sergeant-at-arms to bring in Council
man Desmarais. . A moment later Gov.
Thornton, who had been apprised of the
situation, oame to the couucil chamber,
knocked and was admitted. Addressing
the members of the counoil the governor
said 'our opportunity has arrived,' and he
requested Mr. Bunker to prepare the
resolution confirming all executive nom
inees then before the council, except the
three over which there was some contest
among Democrats, and nrged that as
soon as a quorum oould be secured the
oounoil should go into executive session
and pass the resolution.
"Ine governor then retired and thus it
happened that when Mr. Desmarais was
brought in by the sergeant-at-arms the
quorum was complete, and the five Re
publican members arrived two minutes
later to find themselves locked out and
the Democrats in the act of confirming
the appointees."
In addition it may be stated that Felix
Martinez followed the. governor into the
aouuoii chamber, and, overheating his
suggestions as to the opportuneness of the
moment, went out immediately to again
join the orowd outside and loudly boaBt
of his shrewdness in planning the coop
when, in reality, he, "like the flowers that
bloom in the spring, had nothing to do
with the case."

The capitol rebuilding committee met
at the Palace hotel this forenoon, all
members being present as follows: Mr.
F. A. Manzanares, of Las Vegas; Mr. W.
S. Hopewell, of Hillsboro; Mr. Solomon
Luna, of Los Lnnns; Messrs. A. Staab and
H. L. Waldo, of Santa Fe. The latter gen
tleman was last evening appointed by the
governor as a member of the committee in
place of Mr. B. Seligman, who could not
find it convenient to serve. The board
organized by eleoting Mr. Manzanares
president and Mr. Staab secretary. Al
though the members serve without pay
they are each required to give bonds in
the sum of $5,000 and this was done this
afternoon. Advioes from Washington
are to the effect that the house commit
tee on territories has favorably reported
the resolution sanctioning the issue of
$75,000 of territorial bonds for rebuild

LEGISLATIVE EMPLOYES' FAY.
The supreme court at 2 o'clook this
afternoon announced its decision on the
legislative employes' question. It was in
favor of the employes, the decision of
Jndge Laughlin being reversed and a
mandamus absolute being ordered against
the auditor requiring him to pay the em
ployes as provided in tho resolutions
passed by the assembly. Chief Justice
Smith took occasion, in announcing that
the court felt constrained to differ with
Judge Langhlin, to pay a high tribute to'
that officer, stating that in dissenting
from his opinion they did not lose sight
of the ability of the argument and tho
purity of the purpose that had character
ized his rnling on the subject. The chief
justice further announced that in the
opinion of the court the organio law did
not impose any limitation as to the em
ployment of persons by the legislature to
assist in carrying out its functions. The
chief justice stated that the abuse of
power on the part of the legislature did
not authorize a denial by the courts of
the existence of that power. After an
nouncing the decision the court adjourned
until 3:30 When the formal order on the
auditor was signed. Solicitor General
Bartlett states that he will take no appeal.

oan he clear his own record? That's the

Capt. J. G. Clanoey returned from
Santa Fe, where he was an honored and
useful member of the legislature. Optic.
Yes, Capt. Clancey made but one mistake;
that was when he permitted the Bunker-Fort-Martinez
combine to entice him
into trying to deliver H. B. No. 112 to the
governor "out of its regular order."
The Albuquerque Citizen says: "Gov.
Thornton made a good record for him
self daring the session of the legislature.
He is the best Demooratio governor this
territory has ever had, Gov.
Thornton vetoed the bill making the
marshal eleotive. This is one of the best
deeds the governor has done this year."
Capt. L. C. Fort is not a bit pleased
with the governor's appointment of Hon.
A. A. Jones, H. B. 112 to the contrary
notwithstanding. It is stated that he
meditates oonrt proceeding either by quo
warranto against Mr. Jones to test his
title to the office or by proceeding
against Secretary Miller to prevent that
official from issuing a certificate of ap
pointment. A mistake in the oonfusion, incident to
the close of the session, was made in yes
terday's paper in the statement that the
bill for the appropriation of the proceeds
ItaEdn
3
Powder
of a .20 mill levy for the Las Vegas insane
asylum, had passed both houses. The bill
which passed by the narrow margin men
tioned was that giving the arrangement
committee for the Albuquerque irrigation
congress $2,500. What is better still, the
last named measure got the governor's
signature and is now law.
Hon. Frank A. Manzanares personally
knows Hon. William L. Wilson, the new
postmaster general, very well, and makes
no concealment of the fact that he thinks
the president could not have invited a
brighter, brainier or better man to take
a seat in his cabinet. Mr. Manzanares
represented New Mexico as a delegate in
congress during Mr. Wilson's first term
as a representative in the house from
West Virginia. This was in 1883 and
1881. The friendship then cemented be
tween these two gentlemen has proved
enduring.
