Discovery of the Headless Body of a
oung' Printer at Socono-No
Clue to Perpetrators He
war ds Offered.
Evidence of a shocking murder was
yesterday discovered at Socorro.
About three months ago a young prin
ter named J. C. Allsop disappeared from
Socorro. He had worked for some time
in the printing office of Mr. J. H. Mc
Cntohen and then suddenly disappeared. At
thetimeMr. MoCntchen made inquiries at
the railroad office abont the young man
and was informed that he had bought a
ticket for San Marcial. This seemed sat
isfactorily to explain the sudden disap
pearance of the man, and heightens the
mystery disclosed in the following letter
from District Attorney Dougherty to the
Socorro, N. M., June 25, 181)5.
Hon. W. T. Thornton. Governor, Santa Fe :
Dear Sir: There has been an outrage
ous murder committed within the limits
of the city of Socorro. The body wa9
found partially buried at n point this
side of the sohool of mineB, with his head
entirely severed from his body, and as yet
tht head has not been found. The mur
dered man is J. C. Allsop. He was a
young man of seemingly good character,
who had been residing here in Sooorro a
number of months working at his trade
of printer, in the employ of the Adver
tiser. So far as oan be lenrned he was
not a drinking man. About three months
ago he suddenly disappeared. Nothing
had been heard of his whereabouts until
his body was found partially buried in
the manner indicated before. I am ex
tremely anxious that the guilty parties
should be discovered and panished for
this horrible crime, and to that end would
ask if it is within your power to olfer a
reward for the appieheiiBion and prose
cution of the guilty parties. We have no
clue as to the identity of the perpetrators
of this crime, but trust to the cupidity of
those having knowledge of the crime to
discover the murderers. The connty will
offer a reward of $300 8nd the citizens
will probably raise an additional $100,
Yonrs truly,
Immediately upon the receipt of the
foregoing the governor issued the follow
ing proclamation:
Whereas, J. C. Allsop was reoently
murdered in the connty of Socorro and
territory of New Mexico, by unknown
parties who are now at large.
Mow, therefore, for the purpose of ob
tainiug the arrest and conviction of the
parties committing said crime, I, W. T.
Thornton, governor of the territory of
New Mexico, do hereby offer a reward of
$500 for the arrest of eaoh and every one
of the parties committing said crime, and
immunity from punishment to the first
party connected therewith who shall turn
state's evidence, provided, such party is
not the principal in the commission of
said murder.
Done at the executive office on this the
26th of June, A. D. 181)5.
Witness my hand and the great seal of
the territory.

riio Executive Talks of Affairs at the
East Subjects ot Interest to
New Mexico People.
Gov. Thornton has returned from the
east, and resumed his official duties this
morning. While absent he visited Chi
cago, Detroit, Washington and New York.
Everywhere he met people making earn
est inquiries about New Mexioo, parti
cularly as regards irrigation farming, fruit
growing etc. Mining matters also elicit
much interest, gold, oopper and lead pro
perties being most sought after. As to
silver the governor said the first subject
touched upon in conversation, whether
political, social or of a business nature,
invariably brought up the financial pro
blem. There is but one sentiment among
business men at the east, north of Mem
phis, and that is gold only. The remark
able growth of the double standard prin
ciple in the south and west, has put the
Wall street cohorts and their followers
"on their metal," as it were, and the gov
ernor thinks it will take earnest and
united work among bitnetallists to win a
victory next year.
Gen aral business was found to be im
proving everywhere. The manufactur
ing industries are particularly prosper
ous, and iron, wool, oopper and cotton
bid fair to go higher under this activity.
As to Bt'ntehood the governor flays the
congress which assembles in December
will in all probability pass an enabling
act, so that New Mexico can vote on a
state constitution and elect state officers
at the next regular election one year from
November. Concerning Santa Fe's mili
tary establishment he found matters in
none too satisfactory shape. At Wash
ington there is a disposition to await
Gen. Scholield's return and abide by his
decision in the premises. Notwithstand
ing reports to the contrary, it is believed
that Gen. Schofield is most friendly to
the establishment of a large post here,
though he does not consider it wise to
have Fort Marcy in its present unfit
shape reoocupied at once, preferring to
await the aotion of oongress on the pend
ing bill for the larger post.
Gov. Thornton is heartily glad to get
baok to New Mexico's balmy air, and says
he saw while absent no fields or pastures
that look more thrifty than those along
the road south of Raton. He spent yes
terday and day before at Las Vegas, and
characterizes the Masouio entertainment
there as the most magnificent event of
the kind ever given in New Mexico, 495

Sew Mexico Possesses a Model Some
Facts Respecting the Institution
ruder Col. Bcrgniann's
Among the many surprises the intelli
gent sojourner may meet with in this,
almost the last of the territories, is an
object lesson in penology which students
of that science in the older states and in
Enrope might study with profit. Indeed,
the fact that the territory of New Mexioo
possesses a penitentiary designed, built,
and conducted upon the most advanced
ideas of modern thinkers is not generally
known, even in the territory.
The space accorded to this artiole is
too small in which to follow the growth
of this institution through the annual re
ports of its board of commissioners and
superintendents since 1881, and a suffi
cient description of the penitentiary as
it exists must suffioe. "'' ' '
Theofficers of this model penal re
formatory are Richard "Hudson," fj, A.
Hodley, Henry J. Yonng, Roman A. Baoa,
Jesus Ma. Valdez, W. E. Dame, Abram
Abeyta, commissioners; Edward H. Berg
mann, superintendent, and Oscar L.
Merrill, assistant superintendent.
The grounds of the institution, situ
ated abont two miles south of the oity of
Santa Fe, are about eleveu aores in extent,
and enclosed with a twenty foot wall,
with watch towers, etc., as is usnal with
penitentiaries of the states. The cell
room, cells, mess room, chapel, hospital,
bath room, etc, are all constructed and
furnished with regard to the comfort and
health of the prisoners, as well as to
their safe keeping; and while every pre
caution is observed to carry out the letter
and spirit of the sentence imposed, pris
oners are treated as unfortunately crim
inal and possibly reformable.
There are at present 191 prisoners in
this institution, an increase of nearly 20
per cent over the number during the
years of 18113-4. Of this number not one
is undergoing punishment of any kind
for the infraction of discipline. It is a
noteworthy fact that the iron prod, the
paddle and other means of torture are
here unknown, that officers or guards
never abuse prisoners, even by offensive
language, and that the management aots
npon the theory that there are no inoor
rigibles. In theoommissionerB' report of Novem
ber, 181)1, appeared the following: "At
each meeting of the board the commis
sioners have made it their dnty to care
fully inspect the prison throughout and
they have never failed to find it in an ex
cellent state of order. They have fur
nished the inmates with provisions and
general supplies of the best quality, in
ample quantity consistent with eoonomy,
and at h cost to the territory that we
regard as most gratifying. We may also
refer with pride to the excellent sanitary
condition of the institution, no deaths
having occurred sinoe November, 1892.
"The general conduct of the inmates has
been very good, a faot that speaks well
for the discipline now in vogue here;
while plenty of wholesome food, good
clothing, proper literature, and systematic
religious exeroises have all served to con
tribute to the welfare and comfort of the
inmates; Again referring to the dis
cipline of the institution, we may say
that it is of a military character, and as
near perfect, in onr judgment, as can be
maintained in an institution of this kind.
In this connection, the following from the
superintendent's report will be found in
teresting: 'While I do not claim that the
discipline in this prison is perfect, yet I
feel no reluctance in asserting that it is
nearly so. I am gratified to say that our
convicts not only obey all orders un
hesitatingly, bnt, what is still better,
cheerfully. They feel that crime has its
penalty, yet all seem to make the best of
their lot, display pleasant faces, eat
heartily and work as earnestly as any
class of men.
"Outsiders regular ration prescribed
by law, tho convicts have been fed fresh
pork, potatoes, cornmeal, oatmeal, dried
fruits, peas, string beans, corn, radishes,
lettuoe, squash, cabbage, onions, parsnips,
beets and saner kraut. On eaoh of the
national holidays each prisoner is allowed
lemonade, half a "pie, roast pork and apple
sauce, fresh fruits, etc The viotuals are
well prepared, and each oonviot is allowed
to eat as much as his appetite craves, due
cafe being taken that there shall be no wan
ton waste."
The motto of this prison is, "silence,
repentance, labor." The people of the
territory may justly feel prond of its
penal institution as it stands to-day. It
is no way inferior to the best, and is su
perior to many in the states where pen
ology is studied and praotloed as a
The repeated re-appointment of the
present superintendent of this institution
by the honorable board of commission
ers justifies us in congratulating the
board and the people of New Mexico
upon their choice. Col. E. H. Bergmann
is a man of broad humanity, of a gentle
and unselfish nature, but firm in purpose,
exemplary in his daily life, and a dis
oiplanarian of the Prussian and Union
armies. As a young man he was a lien
tenant in the famous Black Hussars of
Prussia. He came to the United States
in 1869, and in 1861 volunteered his ser
vices to Uncle Sam, and served as litn-tenant-colonel
of Kit Carson's oelebrated
regiment of cavalry. Upon being must
ered out of service in 1867, Col. Berg
mann returned to civil pursuits, and in
1891 was oppointed acting superintend
ent of the New Mexioo territorial peni
tentiary. . After an lncumbenoy or only
six months politioal reasons led to his
being superseded; bnt in his six months
trial he had proved himself so exception
ally efficient as a superintendent that the
commissioners appointed him superin
tendent with full powers to act within
oertain rules in 1893, re-appointed him in
1891, end again in 1895.
Ool Bergmann esteems the opportunity
offered him in his present position to
serve his follow-men both an honor and
a privilege. He possesses the happy fao
mty of gaining the confidence of prisoners
and at the same time of impressing them
witht he absolute necessity of discipline. He
finds his duty not only in conducting the
institution economically and in the inter
est of the territory in n financial sense,
but, as well, by kind, humane treatment,
moral precept and einmple, doing all
in his power to make of the New Mexioo
penitentiary a reformatory where the un
fortunates under his eare are taught
wholesome habits of industry, and les
sons of duty toward theirfeliow men. In
short, no effort is spared to reform un
fortunates, who, through ignoranoe or
environment, or mental infirmities, have
transgressed the usages of civilization
and the laws of the territory.
In the following -paragraph from the
superintendent's report may be found
the true principle of the modern soienoe
of penology, and, as well. Col. Bergmann's
understanding of the subject: "Quite a
number of the oonviots are young men
without profession or trade, and with no
fixed habit of industry. Would it not re
sult to the or edit of the territory If these
should leave the penitentiary much bet
ter men than when they entered it, with
some mechanical skill, compoliorily ao-

quired, in some field of industry, to en
able them to live well and honestly after
wards? To attain such results and at
the same time make the employment
profitable, should be our aim, and this
seems to me no difficult task, provided
the legislature will give us a helping
In conclusion we reprint the following
from the New Mexican of Feb. 27, last:
''The special oommittee appointed to
visit ths Santa Fe territorial institutions
made a report exceedingly compliment
ary to the management of the peniten
tiary. . It shows that the 151 oonviots
there oonfiued are under admirable treat
ment and dicipline. The report states
"that the per capita and net cost of sub
sistence for the last two years have been
12.69 cents for 1893 and 11.62 cts for 1891.
"The actual cost of maintenance, in
cluding subsistence, clothing and all
other expenses, after giving the oonviots
a small credit for the enormous amount
of labor done nnd improvements made,
amounted in 1893 to 9.46 cents while in
1891 the convicts earned 7.06 oents per
capita over and above the oost of main
taining the prison." The report calls at
tention to the faot that during the past
two years there have been accomplished
the following improvements without a
cent of oost to the territory:
The erection of the penitentiary wall,
requiring 2,505,112 brioks, 2,352 perches
of rock and nearly 20,000 bushels of lime;
the roofing and interior furnishing of
the hospital building; the renovating and
plastering of the oell house; the ereotion
of a model pig pen; the erection of work
shops, stables and store-rooms; the sink
ing of a well and the putting up of a
wind-mill and pump."
