Two preachers met In "the court house hall at Dallas and without a word they commenced pounding on each other with thetr canes. To add to their ir reverend acts these reverend gentlemen one or tne other and per haps both have broicen the command ment which says, "thou sbalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor," for their statements in regard to the difficulty do not harmonize upon any point.' All the regret one of them has for the occurrence is that he broke his fine ebony cane over the other one's head, but be added. "I will have a sil ver band put around the place where it was splintered." The trouble arose over a case in court. TEXAS JOURNALIST DEAD. II. E. Whitlock. a widely known Tex as newspaper man. died in Dallas onp day last week. He was a native of Il linois and came to Texas several years ago. He has worked for papers in Gal veston. Houston and Dallas and his at reportorial work was done on the San Antonio Express. He established an insurance publication in San An tonio about a year ago and last sum mer he moved it to Dallas. He mar ried the daughter of a prominent citi zen of Austin and his wife and one child survive him. He was taken to Austin for burial. THE DUST PROBLEM. El Paso is not the , only town in which simoons occur. Great clouds of dust drifted through the streets of Dal las all of one day last week and sprink lers were powerless to give relief, for the dust was blown in from the out skirts of the town where the sprinklers never go. Mayor Cabell wrote to may ors of neighboring towns for advice on the dust pioblem and they said to get the citizens to assist- in having the suburbs sprinkled. FOUND SNAKES (5ALORE. On the farm of Ellis Hutchlns. three miles west of Grapevine, a nest of snakes was found under a rock. A dog "treed" what Mr. Hutchins and help thought was a rabbit under the rock and they turned it over. They must have thought they "had em again" when their eyes beheld a mass of wrigling reptiles. They dispatched .them and then counted their game. There were 125 in all. 122 of them be ing copperheads, two chicken-snakes and one blacksnake. They ranged in size from one foot in length to full grown copperheads. 122 feet THIS IS FINE WAREHOUSE PROPERTY.

Texas is getting to.be too thickly settled for fugitives from justice to re tain their freedom long. The convicts who escaped from near Marlin are be ing captured one by one and at the last report seven of them were restored to their posts behind the walls at the con vict farm. FELL IN THE SOAP. The 3-year-old son of a farmer nam ed Haddock, living near Paris, fell in to a kettle full of boiling soap and was scalded so badly that it died in two hours. NEW MEXICO. AMUSING COINCIDENCE. During the rendition of a song en titled "You Don't Stop the World From Goin' 'Round" at the opera house in Rosswell. a great deal of merriment was caused when the singer reached the lines "you don't weigh no fifteen hundred pounds." by a crash in the audience, and it was found that J. P. White, a citizen, had let a little of his corpulency rest too heavily upon one of the orchestra chairs, which precipi tated his anatomy to the floor. It is not at all difficult to imagine what would have happened to tiiat chair had hie weighed 1500 pounds. As it was tlje chair received a mortal wound. BUCK CAN'T TELU We make no more guesses on the weather. Last week we heralded the arrival of spring, and prated of budding trees and warbling birds and that sort of thing, and just as the paper had been printed, when it was too late to kill the item, it snowed. One might play the weather here for a favorite, but before he gets through with it he will find it is a 10 to 1 shot. Alamo gordo News. ARIZONA. MURDEROUS ROBBER. W. M. Dameron. an aged citizen and father of one of Phoenix's most prom inent physicians, was shot in the back of the head while on his way home the other night. Considerable mystery surrounds the case, the weapon used not even being known. He says a man caught up with him and demanded him to throw up his hands while still be hind him. Before Mr. Dameron could comply with the order the man shot him. Both ran. Mr. Dameron for his home and the assailant in the opposite direction. ' Neighbors who heard the shot say it sounded like the report of a Fhotgun. but there is only one mark on Kansas, A. P. COLES & of one missile in the assaulted man's head. The wound is in the center of the back of the head and reaches into the lione. but no missile was found in it. though the wound does not appear to have leen made by a glancing bul let. Mr. Dameron is suffering no ser ious effects from the assault, though he considers it a close call. COUNTERFEITERS HELD. Four of the six men held at Solomon ville on a charge of counterfeiting, have been bound over to the grand jury after a preliminary hearing. Two of them were released. The men gambled with the laborers on the Ari zona & New Mexico railway on their pay day and all the money that the laborers carried away was counterfeit. About twenty of the coins were cap tured and used in evidence. .They are excellent imitations. A large num ber of bogus dollars were passed at El Paso during the carnival and it is believed that the men held at Solomon ville are the same counterfeiters who operated here. PROBABLE NEWSPAPER DEAL. The Phoenix Gazette states that it is rumored that Hon. C. M. Shannon and O'Bryan Moore have purchased the Tucson Citizen. If this is. correct it probably means that Mr. Shannon will soon move to the ancient pueblo, and this his many friends in Graham county regret, but they will no doubt be pleased to learn that he will retire from politics and again enter the high ly honorable and lucrative field of journalism, for which he is so well fit ted, both by experience and ability. O'Bryan Moore is one of the best known men in the west. Clifton Cop per Era. MOST IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. Word comes from the northern part of Arizona of a most important dis coveiy. Recently samples were re ceived by James Brittain from an aged prospector whom he had "grubstaked." which assayed 707 ounces gold and 515 ounces of silver to the ton. or a value of about $15,000. Samples from a seven teen-foot vein nearby assayed $87 per ton. The discovery was made near the Moss mine, and considerable excite ment prevails. Reports show a greatly increased death rate from the throat and lung troubles, due to the prevalence of croup, pneumonia and grippe.

The council devoted nearly all day to the consideration of the appropriation bill and passed it this afternoon with a few minor modifications. Only Burns. Fielder and Easley voted against it. Every item was considered carefully and it is claimed that the territory is saved $60,000 by the bill as it passed the council. There was but slight op position to any of the appropriations and the amendments covered mostly typographical and clerical errors. Hughes explained the increased appro priation for the University of . New Mexico at Albuquerque. Fielder moved that the secretary and treasurer of the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts be excepted from the provisions of the bill that the secretar ies and treasurers of such institutions serve gratis. This motion was defeated as was also the motion by Easley to re duce the appropriation for each judge of the supreme court from $1,500 to $1000: and a motion by Fielder to re duce the appropriation for the contin gency expenses of the government from $3,000 to $1,000. In passing the appro priation for $3,000 for the bureau of immigration, an amendment was adop ted that at least $2,000 of the appro priation be expended, for literature to be distributed at the Pan-American and St. Louis expositions. A motion to re duce the appropriation allowed for the f-alary of the secretary of the bureau of immigration from $1,200 to $900 was defeated. The same fate was meted out to a motion by Hughes to increase the appropriation for the salary of the clerk of the supreme court from $900 to $1,000. The printed bill provided for an appropriation of $2,000 for the sal ary of the superintendent of public in struction. This was amended so as to make the salary as heretofore. $2,500. The appropriation of $1,000 for printing the superintendent's report was how ever reduced to $200. In section 8 of the printed bill, the following items were inserted: To Dr. J. H. Sloan for medical attendance at the deaf and dumb asylum. $50: rent. $175: to the superintendent of public instruction for rent. $100. Section nine was stricken out and a new section inserted. It pro vides that the lands belonging to the experimental sub stations, which are abolished, should be sold by a com mission appointed by the governor, the proceeds of the sale ut Ias Vegas to go to the asylum for the insane: at Ros well to the New Mexico military insti tute: at Aztecto San Juan county to as sist in the building of a court house. A motion by Springer to limit the levy for county purposes to four mills in stead of five mills, failed. On motion, the translation of the session laws and of the journal is to be made under the direction of the governor instead of the 130 feet front on both r Kansas and Campbell Streets by 260 feet on BROTHERS, 0000000 G0000O.

" O -C&!.3 iUl the clerk of the supreme court, passed me council. House bill No. 128. an act to repeal sections 3,107 and 3.108. compiled laws of 1897. authorizing imprisonment for debt, passed after Mr. Springer had ex plained its purport. The council adopted a resolution up on the death of ex-President Harrison, reciting his friendship to New Mexico, his faith in home rule for the terri tory, his appointment of a court of pri vate land claims and other deeds which endeared him to the people of New Mexico especially. A memorial service is to be held in the hall of representa tives on Sunday evening at which two speakers from each house will eulogize the deceased ex-president. The pres ident of the council appointed Springer, Harrison and Fielder a committee to take the matter in charge in conjunc tion with a similar committee from the hor.se. The house still devotes considerable time each day to wrangling over par liamentary oints but despite the fact that much valuable time is lost in dis posing of non-sense of that kind, con siderable business was transacted to day. Speaker Read appointed a com mittee to act in conjunction with the council committee on the Harrison memorial services Sunday, on that committee being Barnes, Gutirrez and Sena. Walton and Abbott were ap pointed the orators for the occasion. The council joint resolution upon the death of ex-President Harrison was al so passed. The house passed the bilt relating to evidence introduced by Abbott. i An effort to take up council substi tute for house bill No. 6, relating to the deaf and dumb asylum was lost after a fierce parliamentary battle. The house passed th bill to establish an asylum for blind at Springer, having already pa-ssed a bill to locate a similar asylum at Chamita. The bill providing for a license fee of $250 a year for peddlers of meat, and prohibiting railroads and common carriers from taking hides out of the territory before they are in spected, passed. The council substitute for house bill No. 25. providing for the appointment of a police force in unincorporated county seats having over 3,000 inhab itants, was passed under the suspension of the rules. The bill provides that the police force shall be under the direc tion of the sheriff of the county: that the police officer shall wear uniforms for which they, however, must pay out of their pocket. The bill covers many points including provisions for a public ' pound and the impounding of animals. their sale and the disposition of the proceedings of such sale, sums less than $5.00 to go to the chief of police to pay his expense in impounding animals and sums above that to go to the public school fund.. The bill is for the spe cial benefit of Las Vegas. The following bills were introduced by consent : By Gutierrez. No. 223. to amend coun cil bill No. 60, which prohibits the watering of stock on private lands without the consent .of the owner of such land. It was referred to the com mittee on stock and stock raising. By Dalies, by request. No. 23, an act to amend chapter 77. of the session laws of 1899. The bill was referred to .the committee on judiciary. By Ascarate. No. 235. referring to the moving of county seats. Referred to the committee on counties and county lines. ' Also by Ascarate, No. 236, to amend sub section 9 of section S67, of the compiled laws of 1897. It refers to the duty of officers to turn over public moneys collected by them. Referred to the committee on territorial affairs. Winston introduced house bill No. 237. an act to amend an act of the 4th legislative assembly, relating to the larceny of cattle. The bill passed un der the suspension of the rules. The vole was unanimous. Bowie introduced house bill No. 238, providing for the compensation of the district attorney of McKinney county, $200 per annum, and for other pur poses. Referred to the committee on judiciary without printing or trans lation. House joint lesolution No. 21. by the speaker, a memorial to congress in fa vor of the ship subsidy bill, was intro duced and referred. nouse joint resolution io. a. pro viding that no more bills nor resolu t ions be introduced in the house except by unanimous consent, was introduced by Barnes and passed. S&MTA ft! Marrli 13 The house devoted the forenoon to the passage rt a new cruil fi i nQrwvH rm net. The opposition to the bill was so slight that its opponents resorted to hudus- tering tactics to delay its passage, ai- tor T-ottlino- srnnri sneer.hes bv Barnes. Chapman.

It cuts the inspection fee from one cent per gallon to one-half cent a gallon; (Continued on sixih Page.)
