The board of County commissioner
has nr-copted the proposed plan fur set
tlement with ex-Treasurer Borg. The
commissinners agreed to accept notes
payable at intervals for the entire
amount of the deficiency. The settle
ment was made on substantially the
ame basis as that made with II. M. Mer
edith after the failure of Meredith end
Ailman.
Both the city and County are in need
of funds. The collectors are making ex
traordinary efforts to collect the delin
quent taxes and it will be necessary for
delinquents to pry up if they do not want
their property sold. City property on
which taxes have not been paid will be
sold next month and property on which
county taxes have not been paid will be
sold in March.
Some of the business houses in town
are reducing- the number of employes
and cutting down wages. This is being
done on account of dull trade.
Memorial to tbo legislature
The board of County commissioners of
this County, ot its last meeting, adopted
the following memorial, copies of which
were sent to the members of the legisla
ture at Santa Fe!
Wkf.reas, It has come to the knowl
edge of the board of County commis
sioners of Grant County that there is
now pending in the legislative assembly
of the Territory of New Mexico a bill
providing ijr the formation of new coun
ties, and that it is proposed to form a
hew county from a portion ot the terri
tory now included within the bounda
ries of Grant County! and
Whkreas, The present bonded indebt
edness 6f Grant County exceeds the lim
it of proportion to the taxable property
of said County prescribed by the Act of
Congress of the United States, known as
the "Springer Act," as shown in the fol
lowing statement:
Amount ot bonded Indebted
ness $218,100 00
Amount of taxable property
on assessment roll of 1892,
including additional assess
ments, $1,'262,500, i per cent.
of which is. . , 170,500 00
Excess ot limit ot Springer Act I 47,600 00
And the a&sossed valuation ot the tax
able property of the County has do-
creased nearly oco million dollars since
the last iaeue ot bonds in 1S80; and
Wiiebeas, The rate of taxation in the
County now exceeds the limit provided
by law, and yet the revenues derived
therefrom are insuflicient to pay the ex
penses of a single county government
and at the same time pay the interest on
the bonded indebtedness of the County;
and
Wiii.utA. The expense of maintain
ing two county governments . would
largely increase the burdens of the peo
ple of both the present and the proponed
new county, and, under existing condi
tions, would result in the impovereh
ment and bankruptcy of both counties;
therefor be it
Resolved, That this board is opposed
to and protests against any .division of
Grant County and demands of tha legis
latura that it a general bill providing for
the formation of new counties be enact
edf that it be aoiendod to except from its
provisions any and all counties in which
the Indebtedness of such county or
counties ls in excess of the limit pre
scribed' ín said Act ot Congress, known
as the Springer Act, herein referred to.
It is hereby ordered that one h und rod
copies of the foregoing proamble and
resolution be printed and sent to Uiutn
btrs of the legislative 6seeRibly.

The Aft or the WorM'a Fair Com
mission to be Investigated.
During the week tovernl very impor
tant matters have received attention in
the Ifj-islnture and the Ihv? makers are
getting along very well with the busi
ness which is before them
Petitions have been pouring in from
all parts of the Territory neniiift the
pnssnge of the bill to place license taxes
collected from saloons and gaming ta
bles in tne county chonl fund. The
law now provides that money collected
in this rnunner shall be placed in the
school fund of the district in which it is
collocted.
The bill which forbid the releasing
from bonds of ollicinls who have not
settled in full with the Territory or any
of the counties in the Territory has
passed nnd will prevent compromises
with defaulting officials hereaftor. The
vote was practically unanimous in both
houses on the bill.
A bill has pasiiod the house which
provides for the confinement of prisoners
convicted of misdemeanors in the town
calaboose when the town is more than 50
miles from tho county seat. This bill
was passed in 'order to save tho large
mileage fees incurred in bringing prison
ers a long distance to the county jail.
The bouse also passed a bill repealing
the law which gave justices of the peace
jurisdiction in hnlwns corpua cases.
The report of the Grant County hoe
pital was presented in the council by
Councilman Hall and was referred to
the finance committee. A resolution
was adopted Instructing the Territorial
orphan's industrial school, at Santa Fe;
tha eiator's of nifrcy hospital, at Silver
City; the ladies' relief society, at Las
Vegas; and tha school for deaf and
dumb, at Santa Fe, to send in reports at
once. -
Councilman Vecder introduced a joint
resolution that the world's fuir com mis
sion be instructed to produce the vouch
ers of nil expenditures of that commis
sion up to the present timo. Ho said
that be was informed that S3,9o0 had
been expended by -this commission and
thought that the council ought to know
what it was for. He said that it could
be shown that certain members of tho
commission traveled on passes from the
railroad companies, given for the pur
pose ol assisting tne territory to make a
good showing at the fair, and yet these
commissioners bad charged up big mile
age accounts ogainat the funds ot the
commission. . Councilman Martinez
spoke in favor of. the investigation, and
so did Councilman Kubboll. The reso
lution was adopted and the outcome ot
the investigation inbtiing awaited with
much interest.
The council bill providing for the ex
emption of f 200 worth of property from
taxation ot every householder in the
Territory passed the house Thursday
morning after considerable debate and
the rejection of several amendments. A
strong effort was made by some of the
members of the house to make the ex
emption 1300, but as it was well , known
that such a bill would have been killed
In the council the majority of the mem
ber s of the house who favored an ex
emption law concluded that it would be
better to pass the council bill without
amendment thantoriuk the detent ot the
mcosUiintho council if it wero sent
back to that body.
The most interesting debate of the
session was in the house over the cattle
sanitary fuuu bill in the house. The
bill finally passed by a vote of 15 to 0.
It provides for the appropriation ot $0-
000 to pay the deficiency expenses of the
cattle sanitary board.
The following nominations by the Gov
ernor were confirmed by the council in
executive session on Tuesday:

J. J. Shulor, member ot board of med
ical examiner.
Petitions agninat the formation ot
Union county have been presented to
the legislature, but the promoters of the
now tounty scheme have several repre
sentatives looking after their interests
and nothing will be loft undone to se
cure the passage of a bill providing for
the formation of the new county.
Councilman Hall has introduced a
bill providing for juries in trials before
justices 6t the peace. The party asking
for a jury will have to dopoait 80 to pBy
the jurors.
The officers ot the Denver & Rio
Grande and the Santa Fe Southern ruil
roada have tendorod the ineiubtir of the
legislature the use of a speciul train
from Sunta Fo to Denver and return to
enable them to visit the Colorado legia.

be stopped to allow the members ot the
legislature to go ou a junketiug tour end

lation ut this session.
A bill bus been passed providing for a
clerk for the Territorial auditor at a sal
ary of fáOO a year. The bill originally
provided for two clerks, cue for the audi
tor and one for the troasurer, but it was
amended in the council ao as to provide
for only one clerk.

The general county bill camo ur) iu
the house Friday morning in committee
of thtt whole fSr consideration. Sovonil
amendments were tifTered but none of
them w?re adopted. Most of tho day
was spent in tho consideration of amend
ments and tl'ibu-iiei ing and it was final
ly agreed to refer the bill to tho Comiiiit
tee on cnuntierf and county lines with
instructions to r port it as1 a special order
next Friday. Thero are so many differ

to pass that it 1' doubtlul whether the
committee can gt the bill in such shape
that it will pnas the houpe.
' Tho Govornor returned Tlouso Bill
No. '3 without his appfofal on Friday
aftdvnoon. The bill was designed to
amend tho jury law but there wore some
fatal defects in it which the Governor
pointed out. The messnges indicated
the changes which it would be neces
sary to mako before the bill would re
ceivo tho approval of the executive.

a flying trip through the country taking
testimony of witnesses iu cases of claim

The case of H. Lindauer wai being heard
by the agent. It was a case of lossss
sustained in 1885 through the maraud
ing band of Gerónimo while Lindauer

are here as witnesees in the Lindauer
chso. Adolph Solomon of El Paso is
also here on business pertaining tocluims
for Indian depredations. Hon. K P
Carpentor, and Col. Fleming, of Silver

count. Jus. Colquhoun, Esq., superintendent
of the Arizona Copper Company of Clif

from New York where he Lad been with
four tons ot low grade copper ore for
the purpose of having' the same reduced

the tost was a success and that four per

treated. The company ill put in a

Tho Maud S. coMiuucs to make regu
lar shipments and tho company is mak
ing a handsome profit on the ore handled.
A few more such mines would make
Silver Creek one of the best camps in
the country.
It is believed that tho Coiifidencecom
pnny will build a largo mill for the pur
))oso of treating the ores from tho Confl
deuco group of mines at Silver Creek.
The property Lna been developed suffi
ciently to show that there is nil immense
body of ore there which will pay well to
mine and mill. Tho new mill will prob
ably be run by electric poV.er from á
creek sotno three miles distant. It is the
intention of the company to build a mill
of not le6s than 100 tons daily capacity.
It will be the largest mill in New Mexico
and it is expected that ore can lie treated
in it cheaper than it has ever been treat
ed in the Territory on account of the
large nizo of tho mill nnd the small cost
of power.
Thore hag boon nomo delay on the rpw
shaft being put down on the Solid Silver
company's proporty at Blaok Hawk, but
now it is proposed to push the work as
rapidly as possible.
Development work is going on steadily
in the Alhlimbra and some good ore wns
found there last week. The new shaft
is down about 210 fbct.
Thomtu Foster is doing considerable
development work on his group of
mines at Gold Hill. These mines are
among the most promising iu Grant
County and tho district B coming to tho
front very rapidly.
Some rich ore was found near Pinos
Altos Inst week nnd tho prospect is being
developed to see wbothor the ore deposit
is of auy considerable extent. Tho oro
found runs over i'.lO per ton and tho in
dications aro that quite an extensive
body will be found.
It is expected that work will be resum
ed at the Lust Chance on Silver Creek
in a tow days. Thore is a very large
body of ore in this mine but the most of
it is low grade and will not pay to mill.
A carload of ore has bon shipped
from the Hobsou mine at Bluck Hawk.
Tho ore is high grado silver oro.
H. W. Dorsey and Willis James have
somo very fine placers in Gold Gulch, in
this County. They have been doing
soruo work out there recently and have
found that the placers are very rich.
The only trouble is the ecarclty of water,
but water couldbeobtuined with the ex
peudilure of a few thousand dollars and
then tho plucers could be worked to
good advantage.
M. W. Noll has a specimen of vory fino
ironore which he took out of a mino which
he is developing. The vuiu is increas
ing in width as depth id reached but
there has not been development enough
dono on it to determino how extensivo
the deposit is.
MCtAL. MARKET.
Silver continued to incruuse in price
during the week but the advance was
small. The demand for silver for export
continues strong. The closing price in
New York was 837.
There has been very little chnne in
the situation in regard to copper except
that the visible supply is not so largo.
The Lake companies are still trying to
put the price up to 12.50. Ltko closed
at 12.0o.
The slight advance in tho pricb of lead
has bepn cheeked and thore is. little
probability that the price wilfgo higher.
The price here, ia too lo'v to ullow for
eign lead to be imported and too high
to admit of any American lead being
shipped abroad. Tho home demand is
nU equal to the supply and there is lit
tle reason to hope for any substantial
advance. The closing price in New
York was 3 85.
