" At about 11 o'clock yesterday morn ing a Sante Fe switch engine ran Into a vehicle containing a Mexican man and five- women near the county hos pital. The horse hitched to the vehi cle was Killed, the wagon was demol ished and the occupants were scattered over the ground. The man escaped un hurt but the women were all more or less injured. The party was on the way from El , Pa- to the smelter and were cross ing the Santa Fe track near the hos pital when the engine came around a curve and Was upon them before the horses could be turned back. Dr. I. G. Gaal, of the county hos pital, came out to the scene of the accident and attended to the Injured women, after which they were taken to their homes at the smelter. There seems to be no danger of any of the Injured women dying but the extent of their injuries Is hardly known end some may be more seriously injur ed internally than has yet been ascer tained. Witnesses to the accident say the place where the accident occurred Is a dangerous spot, and the obstructing hill should be cut down or some warn ing given of the approach of trains. FIRST OVER COAST LINE. Excursion Agent Johnson passed through this morning on his way from Washington to San Francisco. He brought in eight passengers, and left two here and picked up a half dozen at this place. He says he brought Con- ' due tor Sullivan and Brakeman Hig glns. of this city, who left here on the Sunset Limited, from San Antonio this way until they met No. 10. and they ' had to go back on It. From some cause they had been obliged to run clear through to San Antonio on the Limited and then after getting started home ther were ordered to double back on No." 10. Mr. Johnson will be the first excur sion agent of those who pass through here to go over the new coast line of the S. P.. and the first to get that stop over three hours In Los Angelea. which Is caused by the shortening of the distance between Los Angeles and San Francisco. SUNSETS NEW ENGINES.

H.. at this place Is the butt or many ajoke now. just because he has a boll on his neck. Isn't It strange how prone we are to laugh at the man who suffers with a boll? Some or the boys say he got too stingy to buy collar buttons and is raising Ka tts.lt tn nflA A3 one. Others say he has done something which makes him ashamed to look his fellow man in me race, for he goes along the street look ing down at the walk. Mr. Maloney Is taking a lay-off so that he can better humor the whims or this affliction or Job. ROAD TO LA CANANEAS. cciiriont nroona of the Greene Con solidated Copper company has pur chased tno necessary sieei mu w thirty-seven miles or railroad rrom Naco to the Cananeas camp. There is some belief that the Southern Pacific Intends to run a line from Cochise sta tion tr pmivp Turauoise. Tombstone. and Naco. there to connect with the Greene Consolidated Copper company s line. The G. C. C. company would be a great feeder to such a line and It is a known fact that the other points have been for years, especially Tombstone and Pearce. FOR THE ROC1C ISLAND. A coach load of negr laborers got oft the P. V. ft N. E. train at Hereford on Tuesday, and 65 more on Wednesday, and lert tor the "front" on the line of the Rock Island extension. Ten car loads of street railway Iron, a large number or carts, and a steam shovel al so arrived there recently and are being hauled acrosst he country, ninety miles in wagons. 'The Iron is to.be used for laying tracks In the big cuts on which small cars are to be run for carrying dirt and rocks out of the cuts. Ros well Register. T.IE BIG BUG RAILROAD. Arizona Is to have a railroad called the Big Bug road. It will run from the Prescott & Eastern to a point near Huron up Big Bug creek to the Poland & Hamilton mine and will be six miles in length. It will tap and open up a ruch mining district and will give a rurther Inpetus to mining In an already active and prosperous d'strict. The right or way for the entlie length or the road has been secured and the con struction will be commenced soon and the work pushed rapidly through to completion. SPARKS FROM THE ENGINE.

Shope. tore man bridges and building has resign ed. Wm. Crowley road master, being relieved by a man rrom the main line. Mr. Crowley has been on this road for the past fifteen years and is one or the very best men in his liae in the west and it is hoped he will get lo cated on a road where ability will, be rewarded. ' The Santa Fe. Prescott and Phoenix railway have contracted to J. W. Thur ber. the work for constructing 23 miles of road leaving their main line near Cedar Glade, bearing to the east, and again striking the main line at a point three miles south or Ash Fork work has been under way tor the past month and the heaviest part or the work completed this cut off will not shorten the road but lessens the grade or the old road from Rock Butte tor six miles south has always been the most dangerous piece or road in the territory "up to the completion or work on the narrow gauge rrom Clirton to Morenci." being a 3k per cent grade, the new work will reduce this to less than a one per cent Increasing the tonnage hauled and decreasing operat ing expenses by such an amount that the new work will be paid tor in two years by decreased expediture. Since the building or the Santa Fe. Prescott and Phoenix road a cropping or quartz has been noticeable from the track at a point near Cedar Glade. It has been rrequently talked or by pass engers and train men but no one has ever mustered sufficient courage to do any prospecting until very lately, when eastern parties started sinking a shaft Up to this writing am unable to learn what success has been met with, but from other minerals In adjacent counties should judge that copper will be struck. The shaft is being sunk some thirty miles northwest or Jerome. John H. Long who some six years ago lert the S. P. as train conductor, has been with the Santa Fe Pacific rail way tor the past two years and hair, has resigned and with his wito will arrive In El Paso this week to visit among old friends. Hammetfs Victory (Continued from First Page.) particular person selected for the of fice. C. E. Kelly or W. H. Shelton may be the next city treasurer, although Mr. Fassett is making a hard fight to be his own successor. There are others also after the position. No one seems to be slated for the city electrician's job and it is not known whether the present Incumbent will be allowed to hold over or not. The names of all the prospective al dermen could not be learned today. In the fourth ward Brunner and Stewart delegates were elected but it is prob able that one of these may not run. In the second ward D. M. Payne Is one of the possibilities and in the third Pennebaker and Baum are regarded as certainties. The names or the first ward aldermen, could not be learned. The first went for Caples. but it Is not likely that Ogden and Clifford will hold over. Look Is looked upon as a possibility. It is alleged that It will be necessary to throw out some of the holdover al dermen from the first and fourth wards and substitute Hammett men for them as with four opposing aldermen rrom these wards the council would be tied up and Hammett would be unable to carry out his own ideas tor the benefit or the city. A Tribute to Major Hammett. "ir the people or El Paso elect Mr. Hammett mayor they will have the most progressive and energetic man that I know or In this country." So spoke L. C. Nelson or St. Loul:-. Mr. Nelson was tor many years the president or the Central National bank of St. Louis until his private interests required so much of his time he was compelled to retire from the banking business. He is a millionaire with ex tensive business interests in St. Louis and in many parts or this country. He and Mr. Hammett have been Intimate friends tor many years, and to The Hear 1I reporter he paid the man who achieved such a signal triumph at last night's primaries, a most glowing trib ute. "I cannot say anything to strong for Major Hammett." he said. "I have known him for twenty-five years dur ing his residence In St, I .on In. I have had business dealings with him to the extent of n million dollars with only a veilial contract back of It. and I never had a dlragreemfnt or difficulty with him In my life. He was always right up and square to the mark. I know him hetw r than anyone In Kl Puso ran possibly know him and In my opinion he Is today doing more for Kl Pnao thnn Kl Paso cun over do for htm. "I told him twelve years ago that I thoiiKht this town would lie a city; 1 still think so. I think It will ho big ger city than Ioa Angeles. Cal. I am Investing my money here and I know that my brother-in-law. Captain I.mh nrd. president of the Central National bank, of St. louU and our friends will Invest heir money here, but It depends entirely iiMn his election. If the ho lU of Kl I 'a ho don't want the town to grow my money tlon'l come here. "I told Hummett on Saturday that if he was eliH-ted mayor. Captain Leonard would send tl.iwn ll.'O.Ooo for Invest ment h (Mtn us he i wrote for it on my recommendation. Kx-Govcrnor Staples Is also n iirothf r-lu-liiw or mine mid Is worth hair a million.

You have the natural advan tages now tor It and the town Is not doing one-fourth of the business It should and will. I would rather a son or friend of mine should take his chances In El Paso than any other place I know of. "Mr. Newman, of the Lowdon Nat ional bank, has a clipping or an Inter view had with me when I was down here a number of years ago to inspect tho Whie Oaks rod, in which I predic ted what this city would be and what that road would accomplish. I made a report on it to my friends and they said it was wild. Mr. Eddy has told me since that I dl not tell one-fourth of what th3 road is doing today. It has got to grow and if you will give It a chance, and in the election or Mr. Ham mett the people of El Paso will choose the best man that I know or to gtve It that chance." Primary Notes. The methods of the old gang and the mistakes its leaders have continuously made during the past month have been likened to "school boy politics." Real politicians, many or whom now reside In the city, ay that the movements and machinations or the leaders or the old gang were ridiculous and their most elaborate schemes were so simple thwt the glance or a child could pene trate them and discover their myster ies. They allege that the thing last night was too easy. An air of absolute dejection pervaded the police department this morning Nearly all the officers expect to lose their jobs and they are gloomy as a consequence. Tho runniest thing at the primaries occurred when Charley do Pat and Pat Itwyer got together arter the battle of Waterloo and said: "The most outrageous methods have lioen employed in this election that we hnvo ever seen. The Hammett crowd have employed the most corrupt meth ods on record In the history of the city." "Who hit llUt." Is the question that is being frequently asked today.
