In acknowledgement of an invita tion from Miss Jnlia Hubbard, about forty of our townspeople together with a number from Aztec, assembled on Friday last at the McCoy grovo to Indulge in an old fashioned picnic and flsh fry. The merry songs and laugh ter were sufficient to frighten away even the bravest of the finny tribe, and although no fish were fried, none being caught, the loss was more than compensated (or by the elegant lunch eon prepared by the ladies. The weather was ideally delightful. The boating on the lake, rounding the graceful curves, now in sunshine now in shadow, the soft notes of the guitar, all tended as one young lady ex claimed, to make it "so romantic." The chief attraction, however, and the one most heartily enjoyed, was ! the '-dancing on the green," and was , well calculated to give dull care the blackest of eyes. Uncle Mack was in his usual happy mood and contributed largely to the pleasure of the day. No mishaps ou curred except an occasional disturb ance among the horses requiring the immediate attention of the gentlemen and the sad fate of the lining of Dr. Duif'B coat.

A Santa Fe disoatch of the 25th inst. says: The political sensation of the hour developed here last night when it became known to a few only that Editor Max FroBt of the Daily New Mexican had filed a suit in the district court against tne L.as vegas upuc Publishing company for defamation of character, fixing damages at 126,000. The suit grows out of the Optic's response to Frost's editorial attacks on the San Miguel county board of commissioners. The New Mexican's business manager, J. D. Hughes, is public printer and the New Mexican has a 130,000 coutract as publio print er. It seems that San Miguel county has not been turning into the territor ial treasury its full quota of public moneys, and Frost has repeatedly charged the commissioners of that county with irregularities. The Optio came back at the New Mexican de fending the commissioners, showing whnrein the countv had been bene fitted by their action, and made a bit ter personal attack upon Frost. The suit, if pushed will develop many racy features, and will cut a wide swath in the political and legislative history of New Mexico. Sinn Sure to Hang.
