Governor Sayers has appointed C. K. Bell of Ft. Worth, to succeed the late Thomas Smith as attorney general of Texas, and his name probably went to the senate for confirmation today. Mr. Bell was chairman of the democratic executive committee two years ago when Governor Sayers made his first state campaign. MEXICO. MONTEREY TO MATAMORAS. A dispatch from Monterey says that several weeks ago the federal govern ment, by direction of President Diaz, advertised for bids for a concession to be granted by the government for the building of a railroad from Monterey to Matamoras. on the Rio Grande bor der, opposite Brownsville. Texas, a dis tance of about one hundred and fifty miles. A large number of bids for the concessions were received and it is stated here today that the fortunate bidder is a syndicate of American cap italists, headed by William Anderson, who has been in Mexico for some time figuring on building the road in ques tion. The concession will carry with It a government subsidy of about $8000 per mile and certain donations of land, right of way. The government is anx ious that the road shall be built, as it would be of use as a military line in case of anv disturbance of serious character on that part of the frontier. It will also traverse a country that is badly in need of development. HEAVY SNOW IN SONORA. A correspondent to the Casas Gran des Pro?Teso from La Purica. Sonora says, "At the final cleanup of the re cent storms eighteen inches of snow was left on the ground at the saw mill La Purica, twenty miles north of Placeritos. There have been several warm days since the storm, which has cut the snow very fast, still about a foot remains on the north slopes." ACCIDENTALLY KILLED HIMSELF. John H. Campbell, a prominent min ing man who went to Durango from Joplin. Mo., met death in an odd man ner at Durango city last Saturday night. While at supper his pistol fell out of his pocket and was discharged. The ball passed through his liver and left lung. He died the next morning. NEW MEXICO. BIG LAND LITIGATION. 'A dispatch from Washington says that several million acres of public land in New Mexico has been fenced in by the American Live Stock company arid 'that the company is resisting ev ery effort of the government to dis possess them. The interior department is receiving many complaints against the action of the company in fencing the public lands and running wire fences across established trails. The commissioner of the general land office decided against the company and was sustained by the secretary of the in terior. The company had the case re opened and claimed their right to pos session under an old Mexican grant made in 1843. Again the commissioner decided against the company. The company was granted an extension of time to April 1. 1902. and it will ap peal to congress for relief.

Frances, the 4-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Hopping, of Al buquerque, climbed upon a chair and taking down a bottle of carbolic acid from a shelf, drank some of it. She ran in anotner room and told her moth er that her mouth was sore. Her mother asked her what caused it and she directed her to the medicine shelf and pointed at the carbolic acid bottle. Doctors were immediately summoned but before they arrived the little girl was unconscious. At last report she was still alive, but the 'doctors had no hope for her recovery. Just how much she drank is not known. INDEPENDENT CATTLEMEN. George Chessman leaves tonight for a trip to New Mexico in search of cat tle. He was down about ten days ago and says that everything is being held at last year's prices. The demand from Arizona has cleaned out many of the cattle in Arizona and southern New Mexico and the owners are feeling very independent. George is looking for the stuff and says it is scarce and hard to get at right prices. The range is in fine shape and lightly stocked., so owners prefer to hold on to their she stock. Denver Record-Stockman. URAKEMAN S CLOSE CALL. Brakeman Oney Mastick. while alnnit to set the brake on a moving end box car. of a train in the Deming yards, Saturday, was thrown over the brake head by a sudden lurch of the car. Luckily he grasped the brake rod as he went over and escaped getting un der the wheels. The train was speed- ilv stoppd and Mastick' rescued from his perilous position with torn clothes and a few bruises, but no serious in jury. ARIZONA. AN ARIZONA SCHEME. The cattle and sheep growers of Ari zona have united and sent a delegation to Washington to fight the railways crossing the territory which oppose the opening of the forest reserves to graz ing. At the request of the Arizona stockmen the president of the National Live Stock association has addressed a letter to the association's attorney at Washington, asking him to assist the delegation. - Following is a portion otthe appeal from Arizona to the Na tional Live Stock association: "So far the stock owners have been unable to secure permits to graze upon the forest reserves of northern Arizona, The railroad companies and the gran tees of the railroad grants through out these forest reserves and the south ern reserve have been fighting us and hav enlisted aid from all available sources. The truth Is they are using the popular prejudice against stock grazing to further their scheme for the consolidation of the forest reserve and to obtain in lieu land script for several hundred thousand acres of worthless, non-timbered lands included in the exterior boundaries of these two reserves, a gigantic fraud - upon the people, and out of which these com panies will make close to $2,000,000." HAS A TOUGH SKIN. A peculiar character in Phoenix, known as Chickenny and Chick, surely has a tough hide. He and a young man named Wetherly had a little trouble the other night in a saloon and Weth erly, jerking out a 38-caliber pistol, placed it against Chick's abdomen and pulled the trigger. The gun did not miss fire and a sickening sensation passed over the witnesses, for they could imagine the bullet plowing its way through Chick's internals. But the bullet fell to the floor and an ex amination showed that it had only blackened the skin a little. It is sup posed that the cartridge was defec tive. Wetherly was placed In Jail. He j says he fired at Chick in self defense because Chick struck at him first.
