NEW MEXICO'S METHOD.
How She Proposes to Com pass Statehood. THE AMERICANS TO CUT LOOSE Forming a State by Adding Two Counties from Arizona and " Shaking" the Dons. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Hkeaid.i Chicago, April !).— Intelligence of a new movement in New Mexico, in the interest of Statehood, is brought by H. N. Glasgow, editor of the Sierra County Advocate, who is in the city. He says New Mexico would have been made a State last winter were it not for the in fluence of Mexicans. The old "Don" element of the Mexican race is as active in its supremacy in New Mexico as it ever was in Old Mexico. No legislation is effected in the Territory that is not agreeable to the high-class Mexicans. They dominate the country like feudal lords. "Recognizing this, and the fact that it can never be otherwise," says Glasgow, "we want to separate ourselves from them." Being asked Low this could be accom »lished, he said: "The Mexican and In lan population is found almost alto gether in the Northern and Eastern por tion of the territory. The whit% En glish-speaking people all live in the Southwest portion. Two weeks ago, rep resentatives from the five counties most largely American met at Las Cruces, and appointed a committee to canvass the district and influence tho people in favor of a division. To these counties they propose to add Graham and Cochise counties of Eastern Arizona. The seven counties to gether have a population of 9. r >,ooo almost exclusively what may be denom inated American. The committee, said Glasgow, has reported the people unani mously in favor of division. This means tbat the Americans will leave the other elements a fair-sized Territory that they can make a State of when ready for it." "But will Arizona consent to losing part of her territory ?" was asked. "The people in the two counties named are quite willing, and the western por tion of tbe Territory will be left to add to Lower California when it shall become desirable to make a State of that coun try. We feel reasonably confident of success, if we can ever get the question before Congress in the right shape." nil: CANNED IRI lr TRADE. It <•> Heine Gradually Killed by Exorbitant Freight Rates. San Francisco, April 9.—A meeting of the dealers in canned fruits, and of all persons interested in the production or marketing of fruit, is called for Satur day, April 20:h, at the rooms of the San Francisco Board of Trade.

A member of the finn oi A-. A c 0 7 oanuers, of ttt» City', said to-day: " TUe r » to on canned fruits last year was so high that the volume of busiuess transacted by the different canneries was very ma terially reduced, and since March Ist the rate has advanced still more, which has caused a total cessation of business, and the outlook at present is very dubious. They all have considerable stock on hand, -with no spot trade, and, with the present rate aci iag against them, tbe future trade in canned fruits during 1889 is liable to be a very limited one." FOR LACK OF COAL. Our Ships Were Wrecked and Our lllue Jackets Drowned. San Francisco, April 9.—lt is claimed here that the fast that the war-ships loet at Samoa wore without coal could have been prevented. A prominent firm in this city, acquainted with the Samoan Goast and the imminent danger to boats unprovided with fuel at this time of the year, made an offer through Paymaster Goldsborougb to supply Australian coal to the vessels at Samoa at ten dollars a ton.
