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.
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.
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.
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.

was caused when the singer reached
the lines "you don't weigh no fifteen

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,
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.
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.
The Phoenix Gazette states that it
is rumored that Hon. C. M. Shannon

it probably means that Mr. Shannon

county regret, but they will no doubt
be pleased to learn that he will retire
from politics and again enter the high

SANTA FE. N. M.. March 14. 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,

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
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.
