When The Maine Was Blown Up. H. IC. Ayers, formerly representing Frazer, Chalmers and Co. in this city, came in on the Santa Fe yesterday uiuruiDK acoompaniea py nis wire. Mr. Ayers had been in poor health for a long time early in this year and decided to take a trip to Europe. He with his wife and son Enos sailed for Europe and spent quite a while in Eng. land and from there they went to the continent. While in Spain Mr. Ayers said he became acquainted with Don Carlos, the pretender to the Spanish throne. He, speaking Spanish very fluently, , was admitted to nearly every place and was able to converse without an inter preter and could understand every thing which was beinir said him. Mr. Ayers said that he was in Madrid at tbe time of tbe blowing up of the Maine and he really believes that there must have been some mistake as they felt very much hurt over tbe way the Americans were so ready to blame them and charge them with treachery. All of them looked upon tbe affair as a most deplorable thing, and those in power seemed to be very sincere in the expression of their sympathy over the loss oi ine oatuesnip; a good many were very indignant when Spain were accused of having perpetrated the dastardly act. Mr. Ayers said that after the blow ing up of the Maine he and his family left Madrid and went on a tour through southern Europe and over to Alex andria, then up throueh the holy .land over the same ground which the Ger man emperor is now taking. On their way back they went through tbe north of "Italy and then on to Paris. "It was while in Paris that Dewey won his Manila victory, and the news was so good that we could hardly be lieve it. Up to that time no one in Europe thought that there was going to be any fighting, but they laid that thought aside when we heard of the Dewey fight. "We had all gone to the opera that right at the Louvre and were enjoying li e performance very much. I thi"k V at tbere must have been fully fifty Americans in the theater. Between the second and third acts the announce ment of the victory was made from the stage. At first it was made in French, then in English. Tbere was a death like silence for a second then every American in the house got on his feet and gave one of those expres sive yells. That yell is more like the rebel yell during our war than any thing can think of. "I don't believe that there was an American in Puris who stopped cel ebrating with that yell. We ail went out and celebrated right. There were some I know who didn't finish cele brating for two or three days "Three or four days after the Dewey victory, I and my family were down in the city walking and doing some shop ping. Right ahead of us were two Americans and both of them, as we were doing, were wearing small . United States flags on their coats. Up stepped a Frenchman and with a sneering remark tore off one of tbe flags and threw it down on the aida walk and put his feet on it and ground it around. The American never said a word but the punch in the face he did give that Frenchman was one of the kind you read about. It sent him sprawling in the gu. ter,-and before tbe fellow could give him any more tbe gendarmes ran up and there was a big crowd around us. The fel- . low was never tried and the matter was hushed up, but it was the talk of the American club and the fellow was en tertained. Two or three of us oabled that incident home to our friends." WILL RUN AN EXCURSION. The EP.AN He left there the latter nart nf April just before Dewey sank lssV tbe E. Show Their Enter prise. The officials of the El Paso & North eastern road will run an excursion over their line next Thursday, Thanksgiv ing . day, to Alamogordo. The train will leave the depot in this city at 8 o'olock in the morning sharp and will return after the dance is over in tbe evening. The El Paso ball team will play the crack Alamogordo team and a good game is expected. The company pro poses to give all a chance and those who wish may drop off at any point along . the line, and spent the day hunting and return on the regular train at 6:50 in the evening. The excursion train will accommodate those who wish to remain at Alamo gordo and enjoy the dance which will be given in the railroad company's building at that place. The company will place the fare at the remarkably low rate of $1 for the round trip to any point 40 miles or less from here, or $2 to Alamogordo and return. The road is completed to the summit of the Sacramentos and in all probability a train will be run up the mountain in the morning for the benefit of those who wish to make the trip. The Ala mogordo people have kindly offered their support and taking it all in all i will be a very enjoyable event. All arrangements for this excursion wli be completed by Monday night and it is safe to say that nothing will spring up to mar the pleasure of the occa sion. The quails along this line havu not been disturbed acd they exittt i reat numbers.
