liejriiiiiiiig' of Chaves Murder Trial
Before Judge Hamilton Snsano
Ortiz and Felix Griego Sen
tenced by Judge Lang-h-lin
Former Appeals.
The territorial district conrt convened
at 9 o'clock this morning with both
Judges Langhlin and Hamilton on the
bench. Soon after Sheriff Cunningham
and two deputies escorted Francisco
Gonzales y Borrego, Antonio Gonzales y
Borrego, Chino Alarid and Patricio Val
encia, indicted for the murder of Fran-
oisco Chaves, and Snsano Ortiz, twice con
victed of. Bheep stealing, into the court
room, the handcuffs were removed by
the sheriff at the entrance of the court
Judge Langhlin promptly called Su-
sano Ortiz to the bar and asked him if he
knew of any reason why sentence should
not be passed upon him. The convicted
mnn knew of none. Thereupon the
judge sentenced him to three years in the
penitentiary and to pay a fine of $1,000
under the first conviction and to the
same imprisonment and fine nnder the
second conviction, the first sentence to
begin at once and the latter at the ex
piration of the first.
Judge Downs made a motion for an ap
peal to the supreme court, which was
granted, and the bond was fixed at $5,000,
to be approved by the oourt. The
prisoner was then returned to the oustody
of the sheriff.
Judge Langhlin then announced that
Judge Hamilton had kindly left his homo
and business in another district to come
here for the purpose of relieving him
(Laughlin) of the embarrassment inci
dent to his having appeared as one of the
counsel at the preliminary hearing of the
pending murder case and would preside
during the trial.
District Attorney Crist asked if the de
fendants would waive objection to Judge
Laughlin's remaining in the district dur
ing the trial. Mr. Catron responded that
he understood that the defendants aonld
not waive any objection in a case of this
kind, but, so far as he was concerned, he
was perfectly willing to waive the objec
tion suggested and have the fact entered
of record. It was so entered.
Judge Laughlin thereupon left the
bench and the four defendants named at
the beginning of this report were ar
raigned for the murder of Franoisoo Cha
vez, May 29, 1892, before Judge Hamil
ton. They all pleaded not guilty.
The prisoners were all neatly dressed,
smooth-shaven with hair trimmed, and
appeared as if they had just come out of
a bath. Their excellent appearance, after
being continuously confined in jail for
about fifteen mouths, occasioned com
ment among the large orowd of specta
Twelve jurors of the regular panel were
called to the box and the work of exam
ining them as to their qualifications to
sit at the trial was at once begun by the
district attorney.
The prosecution will be oonducted by
District Attorney Crist, assisted by
Messrs. W. H. Pope and H. L.Ortiz, and
the defense by Messrs. Catron & Spiess.
Mr. L. G. Read is temporarily officiating
as interpreter and Mr. A. B. Renehan is
acting as official stenographer.
At noon court adjourned until 1:30 p.
m., and the jurymen then in the box re
tired in charge of Deputies Tucker and
Sandoval, who were expressly instructed
by the court not to talk to the men in
their, charge or to permit anyone else to
communicate with them. At the hour of
adjournment sixteen jurors had been
called, eleven passed for cause and fonr
excused by the territory and one remained
to be examined by the distriot attorney.
As the defendants have eighteen peremp
tory challenges the prospeot of securing
a jury this afternoon is not very bril
On yesterday afternoon, Judge Laugh
lin sentenced Felix Griego, convicted of
attempted rape in Santa Fe, September
6, 1893, to seven years in the penitentiary
and he was promptly turned over to the
tender mercies of Col. Bergmann.
Conklin Bobbery.
It appears that Charles B. Conklin was
robbed of $51 instead of $71 on Saturday
evening. One of his three assailants
suddenly threw a handkerchief over his
face and threw him violently to the
ground, but assured him he would not be
hurt if he kept quiet. After taking his
money and breaking his watch chain the
hold-ups ran rapidly into the darkness.
Conklin recognized none of them, but
thinks they were young men. They seemed
to be fairly well dressed.. One was taller
than the other two and wore a white hat.

most addicted to misstatements are the
first to point out the most trivial errors

Shaft-Other Pros
pects. In a recent interview Deputy Sheriff
Mayer, of Lincoln county, gave the New
Mexican a most satisfactory account of
the great gold mines at White Oaks.
Since the fire in the Old Abe Eagle mine
about a month ago, whioh damaged the
property about $15,000, development
work has necessarily been suspended and
every effort has been put forth to repair
the works as soon as possible. This will
be in a week or so. Besides repairing
the damages caused by fire new ' cages
will be put into the shaft and the hoiater
will be improved. When this work is
completed tha.plant will be one of the
safest and finest in the territory. A 125
horse power engine furnishes power for
operating both the mine and the Old Abe
Eagle 20-stamp mill. The shaft is down
700 with levels running both ways on the
lead at regular intervals of fifty feet.
The escape shaft, which is only down
about 300 feet, will immediately be
dropped down as deep as the main shaft.
Some of the drifts are from 350 to 150
feet long and Mr. Mayer says that Santa
Fe's court house could be put into some
of the etopes. Just before the fire a
large body of rich ore was struck in the
thirteenth level end it is thought that this
alone will keep the mill running night
and day for some time. W. M. Hoyle, a
twelfth owner, is superintendent in
oharge, and James McDonald i,a foreman.
Before the fire about fifty men all told
were employed in the mill and mine and
in hauling. Mr. Mayer says the following
is not an extravagant statement: The
Old Abe was first opened in December,
1890, and has ever since proved a good
paying property. During ten months of
the year 1892, from 11,0G4 tons of ore, it
produced $296,817.71.
NOBTH and south H0MESTAKE9.
About two weeks ago work was started
up on the North Homostake, which has
been idle for three years, by the owners,
Messrs. Yankee fc Johns, of Denver, and
this has given a fresh impulse to the
camp. About forty men' ore employed,
twenty to a shift, and the Old Abe Eagle
mill has been leased until the repairs on
the Old Abe mine are completed. This
property is well developed by a 960
foot shaft with levels every fifty
feet all the way down. The drifts vary
from fifty to 200 feet in length. The ore
is free milling gold, like that in the Old
Abe Eagle and in all the other mines of
the camp, and runs from $10 to $20 in
the yellow stuff. About 20,000 tons of
this sort of ore have been taken out of
the property. A mill of sufficient capac
ity will soon be put up at the mine.
Frank Lloyd is superintendent and fore
man. .
The South Homestake mine and twenty
stamp mill have been operated without
interruption during the past two years.
This great property is developed by three
shafts, one 700 and the other two each
about 600 feet deep, with levels in eachshaft
at intervals of fifty feet all the way down.
The dritts vary in length from forty to
350 feet. The workings nre well timbered.
This mine is nnder the successful man
agement of E, W. Parker, superintendent,
and Joseph Giesharber, foreman. It has
been worked off and on for ten years and
has yielded a vast amount of bullion.
The fact that, in spite ef the sleepless
vigilance of officers and owners, probably
$30,000 worth of ore has been stolen from
the throe mines above mentioned will
give the readsr a faint idea of their rich
B. H. Dye is down about 160 feet on
the Soltaire, between the North and South
Homestakes, and will soon have a mill
run on fifty tons of ore taken out of the
shaft. The Miner's Cabin and the Silver
Cliff, situated between the Old Abe Eagle
and the South Homestake, are also be
lieved to be valuable properties. These
properties were located in 1883 by John
Wilson, the original locator of the South
Homestake, and are owned by his heirs.
The Miner's Cabin has been worked chiefly
on the surface under a three years' lease.
It is the general belief that if the shaft
was sunk 200 feet it would out the Old
Abe Eagle lead.
Frank Lloyd has been successfully
operating a cynide plant during the
past nine months. Ho even works over
the mill tailings at a handsome profit.
Two Robberies.
Mr. W. F. Read's house on the Cerrillos
road near Glorieta orohard was burglar
ized last night. Mr. Read is employed as
night guard at the penitentiary and his
family was also absent from home at the
time. The thieves carried away a sack of
flour, a feather bed and all the family
clothing. Mr. Read estimates his loss at
about $100. A vigorous sear oh for the
parties is being made.
A Postal-Cable message informs the
New Mexican that at Cerrillos last night
John Kriok, the well known saloon man,
was held up and robbed of $65 In cash
and a sold watch. A young German
named Waldon, about 19 years old, is sus
