Fisher at Brown's livery and feed stable, Socorro. New Mexico's Governor Confirmed by Senate in Spite of Vindictive Opposition of Member From Alabama. Governor Otero has won a splendid victory over his enemies. Ilia reappointment was confirmed by the United States senate Wed nesday. Miguel A. Otero's career as Governor of New Mexico may be summed up in a few words as follows: He gave the territory a successful administration of four years and was then reappointed by President McKinley. President Roosevelt endorsed the action of his lamented predecessor by also sending the Governor's name to the senate for reappointment. When the matter was taken up by the senate committee on terri tories the Governor's political enemies were given a hearing. They presented a long list of charges which the committee refused to consider of weight, as is shown by their prompt and unanimous endorsement of the appointment. The further history of the case is contained in the following special dispatch to the Albuquer que Journal-Democrat of Wed nesday: "Although Morgan of Alabama spoke for OTer an hour in opposition to Governor Otero, the senate in executive session today confirmed his nomination without division. Governor Ote ro's personal enemies made the fight and now they are called upon to go very far back and sit down, and if possible keep their envious, untruthful tongues quiet for a season. Fiske and Burger distributed circulars bitterly attacking the New Mexico democrats who sup ported Governor Otero. Such an unsavory epithet as "curs" was applied. But such tactics had a boomerang effect, for in the whole senate the Berger crowd could get only one man to oppose Otero Morgan, a democrat. The New Mexicans at Washing ton are jubilant and are celebrat ing tonight." Col. (ico. W. I'richard In Town. Col. George W. Prichard, the efficient and popular district at torney of the fifth judicial dis trict, was in town Wednesday on official business. Col. Prichard had just returned from Washing ton where he was during the light over the reappointment of Governor Otero. lie expressed himself as greatly pleased at the manner in which the governor's friends had conducted the cam paign and confident that the Senate would take favorable action upon the appointment in a day or two. The Colonel very modestly made no reference to the prominent part which he himself took in the fight for the Governor's reappointment. Company, Attention! A movement is on foot to organize a company of the Nation al Guard in this city. As soon as a membership of thirty five men aud an armory can be as sured, application will be made to the proper authorities for uniforms, guns, and other neces sary equipment. Of course the company will have to be regularly mustered into service. Socorro is not wanting in military talent for she numbers among her citi zens a graduate of West Point and a young man who has seen two years service iu the Philip pine islands; so that if such a company is organized in this city it may be expected to be one of the best drilled in the territory. iNotit-e of Meeting.

More than Four-Firths of the Senators Both Democrats and Republicans. Voted for nim. A dispatch to the Denver papers from Washington says: "Governor Otero of New Mex ico was confirmed this afternoon by the senate, by what amounted to a substantially unanimous vote. This result was interesting in view of the long and stubborn opposition from New Mexico and the position taken by Senator Morgan of Alabama against Mr. Otero. Senator Morgan completed a long speech against the New Mexico governor at a late hour this afternoon. "Senator Patterson followed with a short but earnest talk in favor of Governor Otero. He bore personal testimony to the gov ernor's character and ability, speaking from long acquaintance with the governor, his father and his family, which is one long, distinguished in New Mexico. He also discussed the evidence against Otero somewhat from a legal standpoint and found little or nothing of importance in it. "Senator Elkins of West Vir ginia spoke briefly, but did not oppose Mr. Otero personally. He simply spoke well of ex-Delegate Catron, who was considered the head and front of the opposi tion to the governor. Senator Beveridge, chairman of the com mittee on territories, closed with a short statement of the attitude of the committee, already ex pressed by its unanimous report in favor of the governor. "The senate then voted and by a flattering vote on both sides of the chamber, amounting to over four-fifths of the senate, Govern or Otero was confirmed and the long and stubborn New Mexico contest was over."
