Humane Order Ismieil by Secretary
Morton-Stock Shippers Will
lie Jtequtred to Obey
the Law.
Washington, Aug. 1. Secretary Mor
ton has sent to i all railroad com
panies, engaged in live stock transpor
tation, the following circular, insisting
on strict compliance with the law:
"The attention of the officers of all rail
way companies engaged in the transpor
tation of live stock from one state or ter
ritory into another, or whose roads from
any part of a line transporting live stock
from one state or territory into another,
is direoted to sections 1,886, 4,887, 4,388
aud 4,489 of the Revised Statutes
"Complaints have been made to this
department by its official supervising the
movement of animals in the interstate
and export trade, that the provisions of
those seotions are not oomplied with by
many railway companies and that cattle
and other live stock are confined in cars
for a period exoeeding twenty-four hours
and that at times when they are unloaded,
tney are not allowofi the nve consecutive
hours for rest provided by statute.
"The failure of the railway companies
to conform with the law, causes animals
great suffering while in transit to points
of destination, which is the intention of
the law to prevent. Railway companies
will therefore make suoh arrangements as
are neoessnry in their train service and
provide the necessary feeding and water
ing stations to oomply with the statutes,
and any failure to do this will render
them liable on oonviction to tho penalty
provided in section 4,388."

The Oil Trust to Develop a New Field
Rio Arriba's Now Railroad and
Great Lumber Industry.
Correspondence New Mexican.
Lumberton, N. M., July 30. This town,
a station on the Denver it Rio Orande
railroad, some twenty miles west of
Chamn, owes its existence to the lumber
indunti, nirtiod n hi ihe New Mexico
Lumber oompnny, which has given em
ployment to a large force of men. From
present indications it bids fnir to attain
a still greater importance through the
development of an oil and" natural gas
field, which, it is claimed, has been re
cently discovered eighteen miles north.
The lumber company has recently erected
a sawmill of 60,000 feet dnily capacity,
six miles north of here, on the Navajo
river, and to it has been built a railroad
incorporated as the Rio Grande & Pagosa
Springs railroad. Five miles north of
this mill they have put up n second saw
mill of equal capacity, and it was near
this thnt the oil and pas discoveries were
made by the men engaged in cutting and
hnuliug saw logs. Oil was found floating
on the surface of the streams in severnl
gulches, and gas is found flowing from
many crevices in the cliffs.
For severnl weeks past a gentleman
named Merritt has been quietly investi
gating the field anil has secured leases on
many thousand acres of land. It is
rumored that ho is oonnected with the
Continental Oil company. He left for
tho east a few days ago with the ex
pressed intention to return soon with a
well-boring outfit and begin boring.
Senator Toller, Judge Allen, of Denver,
and Judge Freeman, of Greeley, Colo., are
said to be interested with Mr. Merritt,
and they are daily expected to arrive
here from Denver to make a personal in
spection of the country and examine the
prospects for oil and gas. These alleged
discoveries are situated upon what is
known ns the Colorndo portion of the
Tierra Amarilla grant owned by Thos. B.
Uatron, of Santa r e.
As may be expeoted the few settlers in
the vicinity are mnch exoited over the
prospect of a profitable oil field being
opened near them.
The country between Lumberton and
Pagosa Springs is oovered with heavy
timber, enough to keep several such
plants as are now there busy for many
years to come cutting it into lumber. The
fact that oil has been found has been
carefully concealed by parties interested,
aud is not generally known here, but there
is every reason to believe that the infor
mation is accurate.

Sudden Oenth of a SHrcrt Descendant
of the Famous Adams Family,
Niagara Fnlls, Ont., Aug. 1. John
Qdincy Adams, a direct descendant of the

two presidents to the United States, was
found lying dead on Quay street, near his
home, last evening. Mr. Adams was 59
years of age and a devotee of the bicycle.
His wheel was found standing against a
tree near by. The supposition is that he
felt an attack of heart tronble coming on
and dismounted.
Canadian Hanker Arrested.
Quebec, Aug. 1. George Porter, teller

Discovery of a Law Licensing Prize
Fights, in tm Lone Star
Railroad Magnates and Bankers Buy
ing Tickets for Corbett-Fitzsim-mons
Mill at Dallas.
Dallas, Texas, Ang. 1. Ex-Circuit
Judge Chns. Fred Tucker, regarded as
having one of the clearest legal minds in
Texas, has stated that the law governing
prize fighting is as follows: "The last
legislature adopted a new criminal code
in which it made prize fighting a mis
demeanor, punishable with a fine of not
less than $500 nor more than $1,000 and
imprisonment for thirty dayB. This law
went into operation on the 29th day of
Jnly just passed. That legislature also
subsequently passed a civil code and it
enaoted that a fight might take place by
taking out n ' license of $500. This law
goes into effeet on September 1, or thirty
dnys before the Corbett-Fitzsimmons
contest. There is no doubt that our sn
premn court will hold thnt it is or will be
the law after the 1st of September. The
civil code was adopted last and therefore
will take precedence over the other."
His opinion is concurred in by every
lawyer in Dallas, who lias read it, and it
will be seen that there is no power to
prevent the Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight
from taking place. Around headqunrters
to-day everything is quiet.
The sale of seats goes merrily along,
not to toughs, for they have no money to
pay the prices, but to railroad magnates
and bank people. It is singular that
more railway officials have bought tickets
than any other class of people.

Copper and Lend.
The New York Mining fc Engineering
Journal of date the 27th alt., says:
With very large transactions in all the
different grades of copper, bnt especially
in fine copper, the market again shows a
considerable advance, lake copper being
sold early in the week in round quantities
at 11'4 H?8 which latter price is now
ht'in bid, but nothing is to be had below
U cents. For electrolytic llljj 11 if
has been paid, and most mnkers are now
entirely sold ont for the next six to eight
Casting copper has not advanced in
proportion, but it is very firm nt 10?
10. The rise in copper is entirely due
to the very Inrge detnaud from home
manufacturers, and our prices being con
siderably above the parity of Europe, no
export business is possible, and no in
quiries are received from the other side.
If, what is likely, the Europeans want
some of o.ur copper and an additional
demand springs up, a further rise can not
be avoided. News from all the manufac
turing districts is very enconraging; all
mills have booked orders for weeks in
advance, and most of them are working
overtime. Exports from now on will
show a considerable falling off, unless
new contracts are being made.
Under the circumstances it is not to be
wondered nt that the foreign market also
shows considerable firmness.
With the Inrge consumptive demand
and with hardly any offers of desilverized
lend from the west, prices are rather
higher, and large contracts were closed at
from $3.40 to $3.47' New York, which
latter price has now been declined, but
$3.50 is being nsked.
It appears that the west can take care
of all the lead produced out there, and if
this scarcity continues a further ndvance
is imminent. ,
The European market has advanced to
11 for Spanish and '11 2s. 6d 11 5s.
for English lead, and it is reported that
stocks there are very low.
St. Louis Lead Market The John Wahl
Commission company telegraphs us as
follows:' Lead is unsettled and very
strong, withaoontinuednpwnrd tendency.
The latest sales noted are nt $3.27 for
desilverized lead, nnd $3.25 for Missonri
brands. The demand is fairly aotive and
it is evident that buyers are getting
somewhat nervous nnd looking upon the
sharp advance with considerable appre
