In tbe Perfecto Padllla case Judge Laogblln is disqualified, in tbe Solplo Agullar case Judge Smith can not sit, in tbe Dlonoio Sandoval case Judge Collier is disqualified and la the John Chamberlln case Judge Hamilton Is not qualified; but It fortu nately so happens, as tbe reader will ob serve, that in the bearing of the motions in these five different cases all the judges of the court will be called upon to pass on the question of law at issue and so the final judgment will be that of the entire oourt. It is understood that the other cases indi cated will be beard at once. - Some of the best borne talent are pre paring a drama, "The Arabian Nights," to be put on tbe stage bere some time this month. 5 On the "bargain counter" we place, to. day a lot of summer lap-robes at 53 cents each better get a pair while they are cheap, at Ilfeld's.

Among tbe speakers at tbe congress have already been selected ex-Governors Prince and Sheldon and ex-Surveyor-Gen eral Hobart, of New Mexico.
