Muring ol Motion to Dismiss Writ of Error
In ttorr.tro Case In Progrew Other Cases
Involving Same Quoatloa of Law.
Tbe Mew Mexico supreme conrt met this
morning at 10 o'clock, with Chief Justice
Smith presiding and Associate Justices
Collier, Bants. Lauguliu and Hamilton
present, anys yesterday ' New Mexican.
In the matter of Fraaoiaco Gonzales y
Borrego et al , plaintiffs In error, nnder
death sentence, vs. the Territory of New
Mexioo; defendant in error, the motion of
the solicitor-general to quasb and dismiss
tbe writ of error and afllrm tbe judgment
of tbe court below was at once taken np
before J udges Smith, Collier and Bants,
Judges Hamilton and Laughlm being dis
qualified on account of tbeir connection
wltb tbe cause In the court below, Catron
& Bpiesa are resisting the motion.- Tbs
question involved Is whether the case
should, under tbe statutes, have been taken
up on a writ of error or on appeal, tbe so
licitor-general maintaining tbat It could
only properly come before tbe court on ap
peal and tbat tbe oourt Is without Juried Io
tlon in criminal cases sent up on writs of
Precisely the same motion Is pending,
involving tbe same queation of law, in the
cases of Perfecto Padllla, Solplo Agullar,
Dlonioio Sandoval and John Chamberlln,
all under death sentence for murder and
seeking new trials on. writs of error. 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.

The Next Irrigation Congress.
Col. Max Frost has returned to Santa Fe
from Denver, where, among other business
matters, be attended meetings of the ex
ecutlve committee of tbe National Irrlga
tion CongresB, of which committee he is
member for New Mexico. A full program
of tbe sessions was mapped out and will be
published in short order. Tbe congress
will hold In Phoenix, Arizona, on the 15tb,
16th and 17tb of Deoember of this year,
and it is expected will be well attended by
prominent irrigators and scientific men
and Irrigation engineer?, and lawyers In
terested in irrigation laws, from all over
tbe west. A very full and Interesting; pro
gram and plan was laid out, and arrange
ments were made by which very low rates
will be secured for ail those desiring to at
tend the congress, In addition to regular
delegates. Low excursion rates for side
trips to New Mexico, Mexico and Califor
nia will also be secured. Tbe citizens of
Phoenix are already at work preparing for
tbe congress, and propose to make it a very
enjoyable and complete affair.' Large delr
egations from Nebraska, Utah, California
Wyoming, Colorado, KansaB, Oklahoma
and other western states and Territories
have already signified- their intention to
attend and participate in the sessions of
tbe congress. Seventeen states and Terri
tories at least will be represented by rfg
ular delegates, tolbe appointed by the gov
ernors tbereol, and by irrigation com
panies and societies of irrigation engineers
and representatives from the governments
of Canada and Mexico will also be present.
Among tbe speakers at tbe congress
have already been selected ex-Governors
Prince and Sheldon and ex-Surveyor-Gen
eral Hobart, of New Mexico.
This irrigation congress is growing In
importance every year and yearly is doing
more and more good. The 1897 session
will iln all likelihood be held at Lincoln,
Neb. Thb Optic hopes tbat New - Mexioo
will be fully represented at the Phoenix
congress, for water is king In New Mexico
and irrigation and tbe storage of flood and
rain waters and kindred subjects are ot
paramount Importance to the people of
New Mexico. Col. Frost, as member of the
executive committee of tbe congress, Is do
ing excellent work and -all he can ti for
ward New Mexico Interests In thai direc
tion, and is ably seconded by the. Terr!
toria! commission, which consists ot him
self, as chairman; Hon. G. A. Richardson,
of Roswell, as vice chairman ; Edward F
Hobart, of Hobart, as secretary-treasure?.
and of ex-Governor L. Bradford Prince, of

In order to facilitate and encourage the
importation of corn from tbe United States
to Mexico, the federal government has fixed
a freight rate for the railroads of 70c..
Mexioan enrrenoy, per 100 kilos, or 240
pounds, from tbe Rio Grande border to the
City of Mexico.' Wltb this low rate in ef

lines, in the handling ot corn. One thous
