SUE TEXAS FOR Boundary Controversy to be Made Basis of Action for Re j covery of 14,300 Acres of ! Land Vahed at $2,000,000 Sii,i ('iiMi .1 ItnrpMH of mHiiinc Jni,t-i,iil. ,'anta Ke, Jan. 17. The Texas New Mexico hoiinilaiy, which hat been the bone of legal contention for nearly three-tiiarteis of a century, will liKure largely in a suit to he filed In the supreme court of the t'niteii States at an early date und which in volves about S ".Oiitl.rtuO. The action is one brought by the state of New Mexico against the stale of Texas for possession of some H,:!'NI acres of fertile land In the Uio tJrantle nlley. It Is bused upon the alienation that the l!io tlrandc now runs and has so run for some lime past, at a point far west of the poini where It ran In lsr.o, at which time the dispute be tween the two states was apparently linally adjudicated, i The action Is now belli; prepared by Attorney llciicral Frank W. Clancy and will le foiwarib-il lo Washington when It Is ready. It will be a volum inous document, the exhibits alone occupying many pages. The brief is now In the hands of the printer. The claim Is made that beginning at what In now the smith line of the eastern half of New Mexico, and con tinuing south along the itlo Claude to the south line of the western half of the state, the nt renin has so changed Us course since 1S."0, when a line up its center was decreed to be the boundary between the two states, that now about twelve stiuare miles of land which Was Included In New .Mexico is claimed by Texas. It Is j now on the east or Texas side of the j river, but it Is west of the eastern I boundary line claimed by New Mcx-I Ico. I A map filed as an exhibit demon-1 stinted the contention very plainly. This map shows the course of the) river at present, when It is In many j places far over Inward the sandhills on the west bank of Ihe valley, antl also the course ll had In 1$r,0, when It was about as close to the hills on Ihe east bank. Its vagaries have thus thrown many acres of very val uable land Into litigation. Kxhihit A of the complaint is the act of congress fixing the boundary line up the center of the river. Kxhihit I! is is the proclamation of the president placing this act In force, as provided hy certain clauses of It. The proclamation was signed by Pres ident Millard Fillmore on liec IS. 18.111. It cttes an act of the general assembly of Texas accepting the pre positions It makes and the boun daries It settles. The map is Exhibit C. Kxhihit O Is a copy of part of the constitution of New' Mexico relating to the boundaries of the state. Kxhihit K is an act of congress construing a clause of the enabling act under which New Mexico Was ad mitted relating to boundaries to mean that the lines run by John M. Clark, u boundary commissioner, and ratified by act of congress March 3. 1S91, were not to be changed but were to remain as the limits bewecn the states. The map shows 14. Jim acres in dispute, beginning at the Conn hesne bridge, north of Kl Paso, antl extend ing northward to the New Mexico line. The disputed strip varies In width from nothing to more than fl mile. $,'0.(MI0 for Another Arcll!- Journey. Grand Forks, N. D., Jan. 17. V.

As the legislators and spec tator!! hurried hack to Paris, detach ments or soldiers were being aligned to salute the president-elect and es cort him to the capital, Raymond polncare now Is in his fifty-third year, is of medium height and' sturdily built and radiates wilii an impression of force, both physical ly and intellectually. He Is versatile and conies from a family distin guished In science ami literature. The president-elect himself is philosoph ical, a writer and a member of the French academy with si notable career ill French law circles. His le gal practice has been marked by Hie fact that he never sends his clients a bill for legal services, always ask ing them to send him the fee which they consider bis services have earned. His concentration Is remarkable, anil he has been enabled, by crowding- through his nf lairs In a short working day, to devote much time to private sluily and social life He is a 'first-nighter" and, maks a prac tice of attending the prominent slake events of the Fn nt h turf.

As. the mountain dominates d-t-tinje, the capital or Montenegro, il was suggested that the capital might be moved to Scutari.
