THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 28, 1896
It seems that the Silver City smelt
ing project is about to be abandoned.
The company was incorporated, some
threo months ago, under the name of
Silver City Smelting and Helloing
Co., with S. 15. DrethertoD, manager.
The capital for the establishment of
the plant was held by Dr. Bunmin, of
Silver City, who, a couple of months
since, went insane and his conserva
tors do not feel juiUGed in carrying
out the proposition, hence all is now
at a stands ill. "Considerable money
had already been expended in the way
ol labor and instorial in constructing
the plant, and quite a lare amount
of ore and concentrates are already on
the ground which must now be re-
shipped to some other smelter, the
shipper bearing the less.
It may be that in the humanitarian
code iho tramp has. certain rights
which stay-at-home people are bound
tp respect. Iq order to live, men
must eat, wear clothes and be sheltered
from wind and weather. To get these
things ihy must work. Those who
are able to work and who will not
work and who possibly cannot fiod
work to their hand, must be ftd,
clothed and projected out of the earn
ings of honest toilers. Altogether, the
thing hns become a na
tional nuisanco, for the abate
ment of which what are known
as vagrant laws had to be enacted. It
ii not becausj of the right of the va
grant to live upon others, but because
of compassionate humanity that com
munities do not permit even the laziest
and most worthless creature to starve.
When tramps march in battalions
through the country, the scope of the
laws should be broadened to oover the
case of aggravated mendicancy with a
punishniont suited to the aggravated
character of tba offense. The tramp
who is soized by authority and given
bread upon the condition of earning it
soon sickens of work-house diet. Any
way, it is the great problem of the
hour.
THR PKOBABLK NOMINEE.
I he probable presidential nominee
of the national prohibition convert
Hon, at Pittsburg, is Joshua
.Levering, a prominent citizen of
Baltimore, Md., ia which citv be
was born lifty-one years ago. Ha is
reputed to be a millionaire, and ii
member of .the firm cf E. Levering &
lo. I ue hroi aoes a largo importing
business in coftoo and exports flour
and provisions to and from South
America, where it has several branch
houses. Mr. Levering is one of the
foremost Baptist laymen in the United
States. For twelve years, he has been

Aa May HQih approaches, agula the
vision of 'Tlio l y appears, days
of the tented field, the emptied homo,
the loud alarms, the stilled sobs, the
sad, proud smilo of vuliant love, the
furtive tears of hearts that break, the
rgsr of frenzied war, the soldier lying
dreamless in the trench, the wail of or,
plums in Iho night. Again before the
ruind pass scones and memories that
still have power to chill iho soul with
dread, though sweet-browed penco litis
oast a halo light of half enchantment
over horror's face and made the hid
eous seem the glorious.
We feel again the shudder o! the
earth beneath the blood-drenched feet
of uaniO'Souled men in headlong thou
sands rushing to the light to fling down
life at honor' high behest, or with
lierce fury hold death's tetf at bay.
We hear once more the roar and din
of strife, the thunderbolts ot hell, the
shriek of shells, the moan of trampled
heroes; seo the fall of men like grain
before the reaper, see the flood of new
made rlvors sluggish roll to wash away
a crime, and re-baptiza a nation Gjd
designed for liberty. The days are
dark with anguish and dismay, and
gravel unnamed are numberless as
stars, and desolation broods on town
and field. But woes have ends as all
things, and clear above the bruit of
baleful war, when twilight shadows
deepen and enshreud what pity shrunk
to look on, swells the chant,
the chant of deep-voiced free
dom, and the song sweeps
round the world of peace-kissed vic
tory. The dark days are done and
the remnant troops march their scarred
numbers home victors! victors! vic
tors! but at a price the running years
shall pay till from the sunland to the
snows that waste, not man is man in
brotherhood.
There in the purple dawning sleep
the vales with dew. lipped flowers
a-pecp, the crystal tide of babbling
waters, trill of waking birds,, the far,
faint murmur of the drowsy kine,
making the day-birth musical, and
scents of all refreshing health exhale
from breast of fecund nalnre; there
the bills repose, their leafy tops un
vexed ; there rippling, fields of plenty
smile; there marts of trade, the forge,
the shop, the many ways of toil, ' the
fruits of industry, rewards of brain,
the gifts of busy art, the deeds of love
thus, thm Peace writes her epic in
the hearts of men.
And there, when sun shot clouds at
morning's gate make golden highway
to the throne of God, with tattered
banners floatiog to the breez1, with
endless ranks unbroken, mirah the
troops that in their country's days of
direst need gave death themselves, their
souls to glory gave. Ttuse are their
graves and these our offerings, spring's
flowers, glad smiles, and praise, and
thanks no longer tears, but in remem
brance pride, songs and rejoicings in
memoriam ; for they at rest are cur de-
iaoaers sun. ineic graves, more
potent than an armed host, guard peace
upon our hilltops and inspire a patriot
zeal in every noble breast.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the ex
traordinary distinction of having been
the only blood purifier allowed an ex
hibit at the World's fair, Chicago.
Manufacturers of other Sarsaparillas
sought by every means to obtain a
showing of their goods, but they were
all turned away under the application
of the rule iorbiddirg the entry of
patent medicines and nostrums. The
decision of the Woild's fair authorities
in favor of Ayer's Sarsaparilla 'was in
effect as follows: "Aver's Saisaparilla
is not a patent medicine. . ft does not
belong to the list of nostrums. It is
here on its merits "
Carpenters and contractors are kept
ousy, up at springer, these days, and
there is work for more.
It is a fortunate day for a man when
ho first discovers the value of Ayer's
Sarsaparilla as a blood-purifier. With
this medicine, he knows bo has found a
remedy upon which ho may rely, and
that bis life-long malady is at last con
quered. Has cured others, will cure

From a letter written bv Rev. Js
Guoderman, of Diamondale, Mich., we
are permitted to make this extract: I
have no hesitation in recommending
Dr. King's New Discovery, as the re
sults were almost marvelous 'n the case
of my wife. W bile I was pastor of the
Baptist church at Rivrs Junction, she
wrs brought down with Pneumonia suc
ceeding L Grippe. Terrible parox
isms of coughing would list hours
with little interruption, and it seemed
as if she could not survive idem. A

Discovery ; it was quicK in its work
and highly satisfactory in results."

Some Troubles Experienced With
Indiana In Now Mexico la
Ileocnt Yearn.
J'o i Editor vf the Onlie.
Cotoiuxi, Colo., May 24 h, 189G
When we bade a temporary udlcu to
New Mexico last fill, it was with the
hope that, for a time at least, we bad
got rid of the ubiquitous:
"Lo! the poor loa'.aa, whose untutored
mlii ',"
Scooped in our ducats, n hen h raised our
blind t
Alas! we were mistaken! Oa Satur
day evening, we were once more con
fronted by four specimens of our noble
red cousins, of the "forest primeval,"
who bad strayed to our quiet village to
make "Home howl" and to give a soul
stirring exhibition .of the red man's
way of tripping the light fahtastio toe,
to the dulcet birains hammered out of
an old bull hide stretched over an old
nail keg, by another red specimen,
whose cracked voice added sweet dis
cord to th it evoked from the drum.
They called it -datoing. Perhaps it
was, but there was room, at least, for
honest doubt, yet the tendei foot who
saw the.-o monotonous gyrations, and
hippity-hop s'.eps of ihesq, Indian dan
cers, seemed charmed with the ricochet
y stpsand . ungraceful poses of these
nomads, who were rewarded by an
encore, and a few dimes.
These red brethren are members cf
the Ute tribe, whioh in its day, cut a
prominent figure as raiders and assas
sins. They seem quiet enough now,
save at limes when some of them in
dulge in a little Indian deviltry on the
side, and in a way to avoid legal pun
ishment. Sjventeen years ago, when a soldier
at ft Union, New Mexico, the Utes
were in camp near Cimarron. From
this point they were sent to the reser
vation allotted them in this state, and
very soon after their removal, they be
came sufficiently acclimatized to send
old man Meeker, their agent, up the
golden stairs, without previous warn
ing also, incidentally to decimate the
U. S. army. '-
The idea somehow came that the
thorough'' thrashing administered to
them by Capt. Dodge, of the Ninth U
S. cavalry, bad civilized' these scala
wags tulUcienlly to make them yearn
to be an angel; but it didn't. They
are the same old sixpences, who would
lift a scalp or out a throat as cheerfully
and as neatly as ever, if they could
only do si, without getting their necks
stretched in due firm of law.
Remembering the Utes as they were,
aquaiterof a century ago, and what
they are now, there is but one comfort
ing thought comes to us, and that is,
the red man grows beautifully less in
numbers as time grows on apace, until,
bye and bye, be win, like tne UuHjIo
be but a reminiscence. ,
The dwellers in New Mexico who
came to that favored land, during the
past ten years can hardly realize that
this Territory, now so peaceful and
safe, was only twelve years ago the
scene ot an Indian war, which com.
mcnciug at the Hot Spring agency
seventy-five Wiles west of old Fort
Craig, late in 1879, continued with bu
little intermission until 1884, Noroan
we old fogies of the early days realize
without an effort that the barren
plains of the once dreaded
Jornada del Muerto, where
many' emigrants were butchered
by
lodians, is now dotted with ranches
and several thriving villages, and that
every one feels as safe and secure as
the locality was in a New England
state, instead of New Mexico, which
until the advent of the railroad within
its borders in 1879, was practically a
uuknown countiy east of the Missouri
river, supposed to be nt only to pro
duco cacti, horned toads and tattle
snakes.
Tbetriginof the Victoria Indian
war is unknown to the general public,
ft being generally believed that it was
due to a natural desire on tiie Indians
part to kill end Steal ad libitum, but
the fact is that old Victoria went on
the war path, because of indignities
heaped upon him by Lieut. Merritt, of
the inth U. S. cavalry, who happened
to be, for a few- days, in temporary
Ccmuiand of the troops at the Oil
(Jaiienle ngeney mentioned in this
letter. Lieur. merritt looked olten on
the "wiae when it was red," and he
was said to have been comfortably
drunk when be hud the racket which
resulted in Victoria's declaration of
hostilities and the butchering of every
member of the guard who were out on
the open plain near the springs, herd
ing the horses belonging lo Capt.
Hooker's company and ttbing every
horse, using th.em as mounts for his
warrior.
Later on, Lieut. Merritt was court
martialed, and when the sentence of
the court was made public, it was
iouna mat Lieut. Merritt was
dishonorably, dismissed from the
army. Afte'r quitting the army
the disgraced . Merritt went to
Santa Fe, put up at the leading hotel
there, got on a regulation "toot," and
then blew out his brains. Had Lieut
Merritt considerately blown out his
brains, the day before the debauch
which caused Victoria to leave the
agency and commence active hostili
ties, there would have been no Indian
war, for Victoria up to that time had
always shown a disposition to bs
friendly and peaceful.
That the war, when once began,
lasted -so long, notwithstanding the
fact that Victoria never bad more thau
sixty wariioraat his disposal, While
the regular troops numbered a thousand
or more, has always seemed inexplica
ble to many of New Mexico's residents,
as well as to outsiders. The blame for
this state of affairs belonged to General
Hatch, the then co.tiraander of troops
in New Mexico, who teemed to have a
special talent for keeping bis troopers
at a safe distanoe from hostile Indians.
The only light of any importance in
which Hatch's troops faoed the In
dians and came out victor', was the
