In raference to an Item appearing In Tnc Optic of Tuesday evening, to the ef feet that Rev. R. M. Craig, of Santa Fe', had attempted to rob a woman of ber good name, Thk Optio will just state, at pros ent. that a woman lecturer called at the minister's bouse, over there, and was shown into the parlor. Soon after bar de parture, some silver spoons were missed Though she was the only person who had been In the room, excepting immediate members of the family, yet she was not suspected till a report reaohed the place that she bad been accused of appropriating other people's property In other plaoes. Then it was that Mr. Craig incidentally remarked that the woman might have got ten away with the spoons, a la Ben Butler at New Orleans. Accidentally Killed. On last Friday, Ben Pace, a ranobman residing near Clayton, this Territory,while riding over the country in company with a young man named Cavender, a resident of Texas, who was visiting that locality buy ing cattle, bandied bis revolver carelessly, when it was accidentally discharged, kill ing him almost Instantly. Cavender was arretted on the finding of the jury, . who charged him with the killing of Pace,' but the general impression seems to be that the story as told by Cavender is true and tbat tne killing was the result of an acci dent. Cavender , belongs to a' wealthy Texas family, bnt was comparatively Un known in the vicinity where the tragedy occurred. , PERSONAL PEN CI LINGS. Geo. W. Lukens Is up from Puerto de Luna. , Dr. J.

HsUDttiMRTBHi or Tin I'eoi'lb's Pahtt,1 '1 ichhitoiiui. Committer, l Santa rv, N. M., October 7th, 1800 J To the People' t Party of New Mexico, and the Votert in general: At tbe convention of the people's parly, held In Las Vegas, on tbe 23d day of Hep. tern ber, last past, for the purpone of nomi oatlng a suitable person a candidate to represent them at a delegate in the fifty fifth congress, following the precepts of the people's party, tbat met at St. Lonis on tbe 84th of July, last past, which nom inatad Wm. J. Bryan, the democratic can dldato for president, and only asking him to accept the sliver plank . of their platform, the said people's party convention of New Mexioo noml nated Honorable L. Bradford Prince as lis standard-bearer as delegate In this Terri tory. Tbe selection of Mr. Prince was made, not as a populist, but at a silver republican, believing, as they did, tbat the silver question was paramount to all otbsrs. At the time Mr. Prlnoe was nomi nated, they were led to believe tbat he was sound on this question, beyond doubt, at he bad advooated the free and unlimited oolnage of gold and silver, at tbe ratio of 10 to 1, without tbe content of any other nation, from tbe stump In near ly every stats in tbe union. His speeches were so forcible and logloal, and so unan swerable tbat they struck oonviction to his hearers. These speeches were publish ed by the hundreds of thousands, and dis tributed throughout the ottion, and by this means be bad done ae much, If not more, for the silver cause than any other man In the United States. - ' in addition to tnat, tbe convention taw in Governor Prince, a man of culture and large experience in public affairs, all pf wbioh It very desirable, as well as Indls- pentlblo, if the people would be properly represented In oongress. Without doubt, nine-tenths of the republican party, in this Territory believe in the free end unlimit ed coinage of gold and silver, and Govern' or Prince, as a candidate, would have re oeived all of Ibi vote, except tbat olasi which place office above principle. Tbe people'e party, now in its Infancy In New Mexioo, in order to continue itt existence, tustain its principles and to se cure all tbe votes possible from tbe old parties, without aiding the gold-standard advocates, therefore considered it, not only of the greatest importance, but good politics, to unite with the silver element of tbe republican party, thereby not only per petuating tbelr own party, but making It doubly sure tbat there would be no dele gate sent from New Mexico to congress, who had any of the gold-standard pro clivities. The convention had good Ireaion to be lieve, from the utterances of Gov. Prince, on tbe silver question, that when tbe time should arrive and they were not adopted in convention by his own party, h a would follow tbe example of Senator Teller, by placing principle above party, and sever ing his connection with the same, and placing himself at the bead of the sliver element of tbe Territory. Tbe convention of the republican party was held on tbe 28th day of September last, and the St. Louis platform of -that party was adopted, with Its gold-standard plank, which was diametrically opposed to tbe principles on which Governor Prince was nominated by tbe people's party. Governor Prinee was a delegate In that convention and participated in tbe same, and by word and action endorsed tbe gold standard." Under these circumstances. It waa resolved, at a meetiog of the Terri torial central committee, which had plen ary powers, held at Las Vegas on the 6tb day of October, tbat the nomination of Hon. L. Bradford Prince by the people's party as delegate to congress, be rescinded. and that Hon. H. B. Fergosson be nominated in bis stead, the laPer being in full sympathy with tbe principles of tbe people's party in the national issue on the silver question.' Tbe committee having further atsurance on the part of the democratic party of its willingness to co-operate with tbe people's - party, as Well as the silver element of tbe republi can party, and believing in union there is strength, the committee further agreed to follow tbe action which bas been adopted throughout the other states and Territories of tbe union, by recommending and urging tbe fusion, on equitable lines, in legislative and oounty affairs, tbut uniting the sliver forces agiiost the common enemy. - A fusion, thus formed, representing all the different elements, which agree In sub stance Upon the paramount issue, tbe sil ver question, and with tbe name of H. B. FerguBson, at its bead, as standard-bearer, securing united work without dissension, New Mexico will redeem herself, on Nov. 3rd, by an unprecedented majority in favor of the money of the masses. Respectfully submitted by order of -tbe central committee. - E. T. Webber, Chairman, T. B.
