TUESDAY EVEN'G, APRIL 17, 1900. BE FAIR WITH SHEEP-RAISERS. Hon. Geo. H. Wallace, secretary of New Mexico, has an article In the cur rent number of the "Shepherd's Bul letin" at Boston, captioned, "A strong plea for Justice to the sheep-men in the matter of the forest reserves- No reason why sheep should not stand on an equality with other stock." In Its editorial comments on the article, the "Bulletin" concludes that In this matter Of forest reserves, Mr. Wallace knows whereof he speaks, and successfully refutes some precon ceived notions regarding the alleged injury done to our forest reserves through the grazing of sheep therein. Mr. Wallace' Insists that as fair treatment . should be accorded the sheep-men as Is granted other live stock-owners. The total acreage of forest reserves Is 46,048,615 acres. On these reservations sheep are prohib ited from entering upon 33,433,935 acres, and only allowed upon the bal ance under moat onerous restrictions. The government takes the stand that sheep grazing has been found Injurious to forest cover; hence this discriml. nation against sheep. The action of the government seems to be based on the report of the committee appointed by the national academy of sciences made in May, 1897, the tenor of which is so abusive of sheep and sheep-owners as to create the conviction, according to the Hon John Minto, of Oregon, that It 1st the product of personal animosity, as it is but the refined echo of the western cowboy's abuse of sheep and sheep owners 'his contestants for grass In the range country. Sheep do not, as Is claimed in this report, loosen the forest floor or break the sod of alpine meadows. They never "willingly tread on anything other than solid ground They do not put their teeth into coni ferous seedlings, sprouts, shrubs or -tranches, but they compact the soil increase the sod and enrich the land over which they graze, as Mr. Wallace shows. They are represented in the report referred to as destroying seed ling trees, eating -bare the pastures of the ranchmen, carrying ruin in their path, and as being the cause of forest fires. Such statements are Shown to be false. In regard to forest fires, it may be stated that scant grass and under ibrush do not make a destructive Are. The forests on the reserves and pub lic domain have undoubtedly been subjected to great loss through the agency of fires, but these fires, as Mr. Wallace points out, occurred long be fore the coming of the white man, and are by no means confined to the sheep - grazing areas. They are caused by tramps .travelers, oampers, trout fish ermen, lumbermen and cowboys, as well as by sheep herders. It is more to the interest of the sheep-herder, however, that the forests should be saved from fires,' which destroy the seeds of plants and his next year's pas ture, and he is naturally more careful in doing anything which would tend to cause fire, as he well knows that sheep cannot escape as cattle can from a severe fire. What is needed, as Mer Wallace points out, is that, the pasturing of Sheep on the reserves be so regulated as to prevent overgrazing, which will do more than any other agency to keep within bounds that awful force, fire. Sheep should at least stand on an equality with other stock. DURRANT WAS INNOCENT. One of the saddest and most atro cious legal murders so far recorded is that of Theodore Durrant, who was hanged in California a few years since, for the murder of Blanche Lament and Minnie Williams, a most diabolical double crime, its very flendishness hardly having a parallel in the annals of vice and its perpetrator was sought high and low for several days, the whole world hoping for his capture and punishment. In the meantime the so-called astute detectives and police authorities concluded a victim was needed and after fastening their clutches upon young Durrant proceed ed to collect what they termed evi dence, the whole mess of stuff in all probability being manufactured for the purpose of conviction, and all of a circumstantial . nature. Durrant stoutly maintained from his arrest up to the moment of his execution that he was innocent of the horrible charge, but forsooth because he could not ex plain every moment of his presence at certain times he was convicted and hung, and once more the ma3esty of the law, along with the thick-skulled theory of these police wiseacres, was duly vindicated. Now the true sequel: A few days ago, on his deathbed, Rev. Gibson, who' st the time was pastor of Emanuel church, where one of the murders was committed, nnntw that he killed both of the victims. He was an active and important witness at the trial of poor Durrant. m son for which ia ikhv quite plain, and ,so m vif,w of the fact that EiiM-ickm Was sfrondy directed to htm nt the time.

Sometimes at much as a quart of blood would come op from my lungs at a time. Every time I coughed the blood spuried out. It was in tfcf tall 1 gotsooaa, ana tnecnurca a;, people told me I had better make mv reae with the Lord r .'. . and prepare to die, for I would aot five till spring. My home doctor couldn't do me any good, but advised me to get to New York City for examination. They finally took me to a med ical college, and a whole lot of physicians made what they called a diagnosis, u nere were several students looking on. One professor had a little ivory oaramer, and with this he pounded my chest and held his ear close to listen. After a while the professor looked at me solemnly and declared: "One of your lungs is about gone and the other is affected.

The younger generation are ignor ant of the fact that about thirty-five years ago men here and elsewhere wore shawls the same as women only that they were of grey and dark hues. The eight of an ordinary up-to- date overcoat in those days would have excited surprise, and now-lay. if any well-Known man in uas vegan would wrap a snawl about hie boul ders, fasten the edges across his chest with a pin, and walk up or down a principal street, all eyes would be turned toward him. Yet thirty-five or forty years ago men with shawls about their shoulders in the winter season were very numerous in the states." The shawls were worn by everybody, and the most prominent men of the day at one time could be seen going about with their shawls, pinned across their breasts. Ladies wore shawls, too, but they were of a different kind from those worn by the men. The ladies' shawls were of the fancy variety, made of many different materials, and were richly ornamented with fringe and fine pins with which to fasten them. The shawl of the men, however, was a simple gray shawl, of very thick wool, much heavier than the material used by ladies. These shawls had no ornamentation upon them, although upon many different kinds of fringe was worn. A plain, old pin was used in fastening the shawls across the breast, and there was no- very great awkwardness In getting your arms out in shaking hands. The congressmen at Washington re cently received their, allowance of field, garden and flower seeds from tbe agricultural department for dis tribution among the people of their respective districts, and they are now being eent out regardless of politics, upon the principle of "first come, first served." The quantity fof distribu tion is large and costly, but it is diffi cult for the congressmen, to furnish exactly the seeds that are asked for. A singular feature too' is that the di vision is the same for a congressman who represents a district in the large cities of the country as to one who has a broad territory of agriculture to look after. Some of the members send them to their homes in big bags for personal distribution to callers, while others ransack directories, write to local politicians for lists of names, and furnish these lists to the depart ment of agriculture, which forthwith fills out all the orders, though not al ways with the precision desired by ap plicants. According to Mulhall, the United States is now $2,000,000,000 richer than any other country on the globe. The opulence which rewards success in In ternational trade is an honorable mo tive lor competition, hut the mere ac quisition of riches ought not to be the sole ambition of the American peo ple. Neither affluence nor power, nor extent of territory, is the true meas ure of national greatness. Intellect ual refinement, moral worth and rev erence for 3ustice constitute a spirit ual grandeur which no accumulation of wealth can ever equal. The fleets of the great republic should bear to the orient not only the valuable freights of commerce but also the blessings far more precious than mer chandise, of enlightenment, liberty, and civilization. Ex-Delegate Antonio Joseph, with his characteristic thoughtfulness, in vited Col. Bryan at Albuquerque to step over to Ojo Callente and have a bath. But the invitation was declined with thanks. His time is too precious to admit of any diversions of this character. Every movement will be employed in educating the people of the country up to the right way of thinking and voting. At a meeting cf the board of re gents of the agricultural college in Las Cruces, Saturday, Judge L. Brad ford Prince, of Santa Fe, was chosen president An economical step taken was the reduction of the salary of treasurer and clerk -with nothing to do to something within reason. Let's invite Mrs. Dewey to attend the Territorial fair. "Citizen." Better wait a spell and see what Carnegie concludes to do about that library. Delegate Perea must bear in mind that the people of New Mexico are now clamorous for garden seeds, flow er seeds and the like. Roswell polled 390 votes at the re cent city election, and Messrs. M-c-Gaffey. Haync-a, Kellahin and Gill were elected aldermen. J. F. Patterson was re-elected school- trustee without op position. , 7 ti J - be i WW' ( ' Ifif ifln an advertisement of free 8mPlf as well as two lungs, so far as I can APRIL ANNIVERSARIES.

More Sheep, Grown In New Mexico Than Montana. Says the Miles City "Stock Grow ers' Journal;" Montana steps aside and salutes New Mexico as the first sheep state, with 3,973,439 head; Mon tana follows, with 3,884,179; Wyoming third, with 2,830,190; Ohio fourth, with 2,839,690, and Idaho fifth, with 2,658, 662. Only a few years ago Texas and California led the wool .producing states, and now they have dropped to seventh and eighth place on the list. Oregon stands sixth, with 2,446,695; followed by .Texas with 2,416,721 and California eighth with 2,001,501. TWENTY YEARS AGO. ; April 17th, 1880. The mining excitement had done away with social hops. : Wm. McClure, of Tlptonvllle, was a new attache at B. & M's. Cooper, Blake & Co. had enlarged their saw mill at Baughl's. Myer Friedman & Bro. subscribed for the "Evening Refresher." "'" Con. Cosgrove, proprietor of the Pecos mill, went over to Santa Fe. : A. J. Crawford & Co, had erected 500 guide boards broadcast over the land. - ' . " . ' ' Frank Emerson, a White Oaks min er, lost $300 in greenbacks out of his pocket. Henry Dold and John McKellar had gone to Don Andres Dold's mica, mine above the hot springs. Geo. J. Dinkel ordered the Daily Optic left at the First national bank and it's been going there ever since. Don Andres Sena, a leading mer chant of Los Alamos, had been struck on the head with a revolver by Jose Gonzales and badly hurt. Dr. Shout was called. A Veritable Bonanza. A citizen recently up from Bland informs an O p 1 1 c scribe that the "Lost Key" lode-, a virtual continua tion of the world famous "Albemarle" group of mines, in the golden C ochlti, has developed wonderful results in as much as it fairly doubled the val ues of the "Albemarie" and has a vein of 150 feet of ore, and of inexhaustible quantity. The beauty of this pros pect is that water and timber are on the premises, easily accessible by wag on road, and within one mile from the projected railroad. Our pioneer townsman, F. W. Fleck, is to be congratulated upon the acquisition of a halt-interest In the above named property which will in no distant time equal any of the Cripple Creek bonan zas. Lucky Six. From the Roswell "Record," 13th. Only six -men in New Mexico w have a chance to vote for the next president of the United States. The lucky half dozen are the delegates to the democratic national convention that are to were be chosen at Albu querque, this afternoon. 'iKACK. AND IKAiN. The secotid passenger train ia re ported a couple of hours lute, this afternoon. T. G. Mulhern, the former trainmas ter, tixk a train for ix3 Angeles late last night. 1 be wife of Brakeman Ceorge Move presented r.lra wnn a oauy gin, eariy yesterday morning. Conductor Charles Webb has con sulted a physician and concluded to lay off a trip or two. Gen. Stipt. Van Etten, of the New York Central, car and party, went through for Ixs Angeles, this after noon. Frank McDaniels, an El Paso & Northeastern brakeman, was married in Roswell, N. M., to Miss Ethel Vera Myers. Chief Dispatcher G. W. Winkler,. of the El Paso & Northeastern, has been called to Tyler, Texas, by the death of his sister. , A. F. Brewer, at one time operator in the local office at Carlsbad, N. M., has gone to Amarillo to take a position in the Santa Fe office. Fireman A.- A. Schubert has return ed from his second trip to Topeka, thla time successfully passing an examina tion to he an engineer. " , H. J. Ryan, resident tie inspect or "for .the Santa Fe company disturbed his peaceful slumbers by going down to Pecos on the mid night train, last night. Cars run away in termnal yard re cently, causing a damage of $39. Care lessness and neglect on the part of switchman failing to set brakes caus ed the damage. He has been suspend ed flrteen days. , Trucks of way car derailed at a switch, caused by the brakeman raising the lever in the socket of switch stand before the car had pass ed over it. While there was no dam age in this case, there might have been. Brakeman has been suspended ten days. t. . Carl Howard is satisfying his em ployers, the Santa Fe employes and himself In his new position as night caller of sleepy conductors. Then it pays Carl better than it does to go to war and take the risk of sacrificing his heart's blood on the altar of his country. In the case of the A., T. & S. F. and the Southern Pacific railroad com panies against the Pueblo of San Fe lipe, an order was made at Albuquer que for the payment of $700 in the registry of the court, it being the amount awarded by proceedings insti tuted in said suit, . to the governor, Juan Montano. An engine was derailed recently on a siding at a switch caused by the engineer not observing derail in time to stop. Engineer was familiar' with"" the road and should have been more careful. While there was but $5 damage In this case, there might have been more. Engineer has been sus pended fifteen days. Considerable delay was caused to a freight train recently on account. of parting while standing at a station or as the stop was made. The brake- man closed the valve in train line and returned to the caboose for a knuckle.. The engineers left the sta tion without signal and with only part of the train. This . shows gross care- lef'sness and engineers have been sus pended thirty days. When that Item of supposed truth ful information about the arrival of the pay checks: was written, yesterday afternoon, The 0 p t i c's railroad re porter didn't "presume enough on the usual order of things In times of snowy railroading on the mountainous divis ions of New Mexico. Of course the checks, which were awaited with anx ious hearts and horny-handed, deserv ing hands, couldn't be sent by wire and the trains didn't come poking along till nearly midnight last night The pay checks are here now, though. Safe to gamble on this. The largest and most powerful pass enger locomotive, on any line running out of Kansas City was glvea a trial trip through the railway yards in Ar- mourdale, the other morning. The en gine proper has ten wheels, five on each side, and weigns 150,000 pounds, exclusive of the tank. Its drive wheels are five feet nine inches in diameter and the dimensions of its cylinders are nineteen and three-quarters by twenty four inches, ta tank holds 4,500 gal lons of water. The fire box is nine feet long, the boiler flues two and one half Inches in diameter and the engine will be able to develop a pressure of 185 pounds of steam. It has an elec tric arc headlight and the cab will be illuminated with incandescent electric lights instead of the old style old lamp the dynamo being immediately back of the smoke stack,; This big loco motive is designed to draw a passen ger train of 550 tons weight at an aver age speed of fifty mlle3 an hour be tween Kansas City and Junction City. ' That Chaperito Affair. The way the fight started, writes a correspondent of The Optic, was two men jumped on Salazar and beat him tip. Then they tried to get them arrested, but the justice was a rela tive to 'one of the other parties And would not issue tne warrant; then he proceeded to Los Torres and was over taken by one of the men, Ortegaf at Delgado's store and : Ortega jumped him again, and Ortega was getting the best of it. He had his knife out to cut Salazar and Salazar cut him. ; 1 i 1 BRAVE MEN FALL- Victims to stomach, liver and kidney troubles as well as women, " and all feel the results In loss of appetite, poisons in the blood, backache, ner vousness, headache and tired, listless, run-down feeling.
