The Santa Fe has purchased the right from the Indians to change its tracks some distance northeast of the present tracks over the Santo Domin so nuebio lands. The Indians were paid f250 for the privilege and the rieht to reoceupy the ground occupied by the abandoned tracks. By running nrpr the Kandhills the company will avoid crosfiine the Galisteo river twice. The change will add about half a mile to the length of the track but it win avoid the treacherous Galisteo. The work of constructing the new tracks will commence about the first of next ' month. Last summer the two bridges over the river were swept away althougn the best engineers had been employed to build them and over $100,000 was snont in constructing them, files nau been driven 110 feet deep in the liver bed and on thse had been built a foundation of concrete, on them abut ments of stone upon which rested the massive iron piers and trusses or tne rririirf Yet when the floods came down the river the piles were brought to the surface some distance below the bridges, which were swept into tne river and broken into small pieces so that they looked like a wooden struc ture that had been destroyed by a hur ricane. A force of workmen is now engaged in digging the pieces of the wrecked bridges out of the quicksands of the river. The company for this reason decided to go around the Galisteo at these two points near Thornton and thus avoid the cost and danger of crossing the river where it seems im possible to build bridges to withstand the force of the annual floods and to secure a firm foundation beneath the quicksands. Frank Webster, the day fireman of the stationary engine at the G. H. shops, is sick and unable to be at his post. Jesse Hammer, who usd to fill that position but is now learning to be a machinist, is working in Webster's place. Hank Small. superintendent at bridges and. buildings of the G. H.. went down the road last eight to look after some material needed in the con struction of the gates at the street crossings which have now been commenced. so long as their noise is a harmless healthful, "good time" noise leave them undisturbed. Boys will not endure nagging; it will drive them from home into the streets more quickly and cure' ly than anything else under the sun Encourage the boys to feel that the! room is their castle, and that they are masters in their own domain. Flora Zoll Briggs in the January Woman's Home Companion. ANOTHER CARMVAL (Continued on Fifth Page.) HE WAS WILLING. It is reported that , a certain train crew pulled out of El Paso recently with a new brakeman. who had never done anything in his life berore but punch cattle. When the train reached a certain point the engineer decided ' to oil around, and calling the new brakeman G. Parras. a G. H. coach cleaner, lost a bunch of keys belonging to the com pany between the depot and the sheds yesterday. They were of no benefit to anyone except the company and the finder will confer a favor by returning them to Mr. Parras. Two G: H. engine crews deadheaded in from Sanderson this morning on ac count of there being more engine crews there than there were train crews. The engineers who came m are Simino and McGinley and the firemen are Cooke and Morton. Tom Turley, a machinist in the G. H. shops, is out of vork clothes and the boys say that If some female ex-cyc!ist will send him a pair of abandoned bloomers it will same them the trouble of taking up a contribution to buy him some new work pants. The gong at the G. H. depot by which the call boy was summoned to the dispatcher's office has been taken down and now when the call boy is wanted the call for him reminds one of the show speilers on the midway last week. There is apt to be war on China. too, if the boy doesn't respond at first call. John Player, superintendent of mo tive power of the Santa Fe, has sub mitted the plans for the extensive im provements at the Albuquerque shops to Vive-President Barr and that of ficial has given his approval to the plans. The cost of the work has been included in the company's expense es timates for 1901 and it is thought that actual work will begin soon. A bill in the Wiscors;n legislature to him. told him to hold up the front proposes to give railroads some pro- draw head, while the engineer oiled tection from tramps. It provides that around, so that the oil would run into riding on or under or between cars the cups.

The carnival has cost $11,000 and a litle over. The difference was made up from the sale of buttons. the queen contest, concessions, privi leges, bull fights, etc.. and some money has been left. I never saw such good work from an executive committee in, my life. They all worked constantly and never shirked tneir duty." Doc Albers, chairman of the finance committee, says he is thoroughly sat isfied and that no coirect estimate can be made on the real worth of the car nivaL "We must have another one,' said the doctor, 'and it will bo much easier than the prefent one. The fi nance committee should be selected now and the money secured. We haw 12,000 now and can raise enough in one Jay to pay all expenses of a greater carnival next year than this one has been. Many people who have sub scribed liberally, but hesitatingly be fore, have been to me and said they were now ready to put down twice the amount they subscribed before Ev erybody is satisfied with the business end of the carnival and it would be suicide not to have another one. Have all the money ready and begin next week with next year's program." J. W. Fisher of the Sheldon hotel said last night that he would begin the list with $500. The committee talked the matter over at length last night and decided fully to have another carnival but none of them wanted or were willing to take the places they have held this time. The work, they claim is too much, and they want to break in new men. The committee will meet again Saturday afternoon when all arrange ments for a permanent organization will be made. At the meeting last night the com mittee adopted a vote of thanks to H . Lockwood for his untiring and prompt services in the last carnival, ana attached to this vote a handsome check. This money was not taken from the carnival fund but subscribed from the personal accounts of the indi vidual members of the committee. tnis mark or appreciation has won Mr. Lockwood and it is verballv News Of the Courts 'A Repository of High Grade Goods.'

The Maxwell damage suit against the two electric light companies was be gun before Judge Goggin yesterday afternoon, at the conclusion of the Me New suit. Maxwell's heirs claim damages from the fact that he was killed by taking hold of a piece of iron connected with a live wire. The deceased was a colored man. The Maxwell case is develoniner into quite a complicated affair, with today. At the street corner where he was kill ed by a stroke of lightning there is a network formed of wires belonging to both the old and new companies and the question for the jury to determine whether the wire, from which the cur- ! rent was communicated to the cable or rod which Maxwell touched, received - . . its h?avy charge of fluid from a wire 1 11 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ' 1 11 1 1 1 1 1 ' ' ' I I 1 I I ufujusii-s iu me oiq or new company.

He stood at the tele graph post, corner San Antonio and North Stanton streets and thonp-iitioso. ly reached up and caught hold of an iron reel on which the elevating and lowering cable is wound.
