TT clip the followiüg oniplimentary
notice from the Trinidad I'ionetr, the best
authority in Southern Colorado:
The Las Vegas G azstí i is decidedly the
best newspaper jiub.ished in New Mexico,
not dcterioratííñE! ftt all frcm the excellence
of tho Kewt and IVess and Aw Mexican.
By a letter from John 0. Stines, Justice
of the Peace at La Junta, we learu thatlho
negro murderer, Russell Hutchison is safe
ly lodged in the jail t Mora. Do was
captured by constable Felix RonqulKo and
the police guard of precinct No. 3 at An
tunchioo, and to those parties the reward
offered wag paid. The negro acknowled
ed to Justice Stiues that ho shot the
Tfotaan but only with oneb&.rel of tt:
shot gun as the other would not go off. The
constable of Antonchico deserves fcreat
credit for capturing the fugitive and deliver
ing him siUa'y to the authorities at Mora.
' The news from Cimarron is that the 3 tus
cD Press office was pretty badly shaken up.
The press was taken out and thrown into
the river, a total wreck; the type and mat
erial generally "vas likewise cast into the
roaring flood of the Cimarron. The pro
prietors are g&thering together the remnants
and if they find sufiicient to justify the re
organization of the office they will resume
publication at an early date; otherwise the
late forced suspension will be final. The
last issue of the paper was only printed on
the outside; the inside boro tho legend,
stamped on the npptr corner: ''Earth
.pake Postponed Indefinitely."
From the numerous murders, robberies
ind outrages generally reported from even
point of the cnmpai, it would seem n
though we had falle on unlucky times.
They are evidently a little out of joint and
the stories of the daring deeds of daring
men, Kn'ghU of the Moon and Gentlemen
of the Road, are tho usual theme of loung
ers at taverns and corner groceries. First,
wm a bloody fight at L,as Ciuccs in which
hree or four, more or 1S3 were killed ano
.rippled; then a man or two killed at Ci
narron; a daring stage robbery in Cook's
cuñon; a man killed and a robbery com
mitted at La Cinta on the Caiudi in and
Gnnily the destruction cn the bffice of the
.Ytio it less; all transpiring within a
week. Evidently, stirring newspaper items
re becoming more plentiful than during
the piping times of peace of a few month

About two o'clock Wednesday morning
January 12th, at the coach, which was
eoming from Silver City to Mesi'lU N. 1Í.,
was slowly going up the bad rocky hill at
Cook's cañón, three white men, masked
with handkerchiefs tied above their eyes
ar.d kelow their eyes with blankets on,
stepped out from hehind the rocks, aimed
their guns and revolvers at Lancaster the
driver and said, "Gct'down and staid at
the head of your mules, and dent you move
or let the mules move or we will shoot
you." lie quietly complied with the o'tder'.
Upon being asked the drivor told them
young Fred Kaiser was the messenger; and
they went to tho front boot, told him tó
"get out of there," and as he looked out
he found a revolver in close proximijiy to
his lead, and was ordered to "get down on
the ground," which he did, and one ajked
him "Low many passengers you sot," lie
told him two; he then tai i ''tell them to
jump out." There was on the coach at tho
time John S. Chiiumh Esq. the "Csttle
King" of the West, aud Hon. T..F. Con
way. Attorney at law, and were both asleep.
Mr. ChUum woke up, heard the lu?t re
ñí .rk and thinking it was the driver talking
to the, messenger and wanting them to Walk
ap the rocky canon, threw back the
o irtains and jumped out, but immediately
found a revolver aimed at LitH with the
order "halt, don't you move," and "have
you got any arms," to which he replied
"no he never carried any arms, but had to
t'ep to tho side of the road," to which they
lid not object, but got Mr. Conway out,
ünd then started for the treasure in the ex
press box which was under the frout sett,
having obtained the key from the messenger.
There was inly one . revolver about the)
"oath and that was in the front boot. Mr.
Chisum had $1000 in green backs in hit
inside eoat pocket, and while the1 silver
bricks were being taken ont, be kept taking
from $100 to $200 ata time from his
pocket book without taking it out of his
pocket, and would scatter it round in tho
seat of his pants and drawers, leaving
about $100 in the pocket book. One soou
came, got he hundred dollars, 'and a, Tey
fine gold watch, which cost $00.00 go'd
coin in Idaho, aud marked "G. C." also a
heavy gold chain, he told them "it would
prove a bitter pill for taking it." At tho
robber was about to start away Mr. Chisum
íaid "now this is prbtty rough, I an a
long way from home, I don't like to beg,
please give me enough to "bay grub on the
toad," and the fellow gave him a dollar
saying "small favors Ac." ' ,
Mr. Conw-M "Lj na bee. q-.ji.
a weak of late, was next visited and re
lieved of $25.00 in small bills, whilo they
left him $35.00 wlith was cot found; and
also took a fine gold watch and chain for
which Mr, Ccnway would not have taken
The messenger relieved of about
$100 00 while the driver wat not molested,
probably thinking that ho had nothing
worth asking for. Jhey secured about
$i 000 in Silver Bricks, and with the other
things amounting to $5.C00. Three Briclii
were marked "from II. M. Portel" and
threo "from J. F. Bennett" and all ad
dressed Kountz Broi. N. Y. Mentía Aftr.
