SHEEPMEN ORGANIZE Magdalena the Scene of the Largest and Most Important Assainbly of tho Woolgrowers Ever Convened in New Mexico. The Chieftain is favored by a special correspondent with the following report of the proceed ings of the convention of wool growers held in Magdalena Thursday: Magdalena, Feb. 27. The sheep and wool growers of So corro county assembled here to day and effected an organization to be known as the "Sheep Breed ers' Association of the Gila River Keserve." The meeting was called to order in the K. of 1 hall at 10:30 a. m. by Capt. M. Cooney. There were present about forty men interested in the sheep industry and several others were represented by proxy. lion. Solomon Luna was elected presi dent and Hon. Frank A. Hubbell secretary and treasurer. Presi dent Luna made a brief but grace ful address in accepting the re sponsibilities of presiding officer and stating the objects of the proposed organization and the bearing of the (lila Kivcr Forest Keserve regulations upon local sheep growers. The president than appointed a committee on organization and by-laws as follows: Solomon Luna oí Los Vanas, t rank A. Hubbell of Albuquerque, Manuel S. Pino of Mangas, José Garcia of Magdalena, M. Coonev of So corro, Montague Stevens of Datil, Pedro Sarracino of r risco. Ad journment was taken until 4 o'clock to give this committee time to prepare their report. v hen the meeting reassembled. John S. Mactavish, Manuel S. Pino, and Abran Abeyta were in troduced as a committee from the Cattle and Horse Protective Asso cietion, who presented some mat ters of mutual interest to the two organizations. The report of the committee on organization and by-laws was adopted after care ful consideration. Under this re port the conduct of the affairs of the association for the ensuing year was put into the hands of an executive committee consisting of President Luna, Secretary Ilub bell, Montague Stevens, Abran Abeyta, and Pedro Sarracino, this committee having under pro visions of the by-laws very full powers. On the assembly s giving con sideration to the recent action of the Interior Department relating to the grazing of sheep on the Gila Reserve, the delicate and dillicult nature of the mission of Honorables Solomon Luna and Frank A. Hubbell to Washing ton in the interest of sheep own ers became apparent and the ef fective and valuable results of their labors met with , many ex pressions of appreciation. A formal vote of thanks and con gratulation was extended to those gentlemen. After the appointment of a committee consisting of Messrs. Luna, Hubbell, Cooney, Arragon and Stevens to confer with the committee from the cattle grow ers association, the meeting en tered upon business of a general nature. At six o'clock adjourn ment was taken sine die and the largest ?.nd most successful gath ering of sheep growers ever held in New Mexico finished the labors of its first meeting. NOTES. President Luna briefly stated in an interview the status of the Gila reserve as affecting the sheep interests: From April 1 to September 1 of each year 200,000 sheep will be allowed on the reserve, preference being given to stock owners controlling range adjacent to the reserved district. The government will treat with the sheep growers' organization rather than with in dividuals, as tending to avoid de lays. The total number of sheep al lowed on the reserve was ap portioned to the owners present and those represented by proxy in an equitable and satisfactory manner. Much correspondence and delay were thus saved to individuals. The association will exercise a careful supervision over its mem bers as well as over other sheep owners to see that the regulations of the Interior Department arc fully complied with and that the reserve is properly protected. Among the well known sheep owners noticed at the meeting were Messrs. M. Cooney, Abran Abeyta, Solomon Luna, F. G. Bartlett, Frank A. Hubbell, Man uel S. Pino, Ignacio Arragon, John Fullerton, Jesus Pino, O. M. Sakariason, Melquíades Arra gon, Bernabé Chavez, Florencio Sanchez, José Maria Duil, L. P. Garcia Juan Garcia, Juan Abey ta, Elíseo- Gutierrez, Leopoldo Madrid, Amado Arragon, José Garcia, and Kpifanio Baca. CLOYE FACTORY FOR SOCORRO. THE GEM CITY GUARDS. Mass Meeting Held for the Purpose of Promoting the Enterprise. Defin ite Results Expected Soou. It ha3 been known for some time that negotiations were on foot with eastern parties looking to the establishment of a glove factory in Socorro. Pursuant to a call by Mayor M. Cooney a mass meeting convened in the court house Wednesday evening for the purpose of eliciting pub lic opinion and formulating a plan of action. A goodly num ber of Socorro's representative business men were present, though a few of such were con spicuous by their absence. Mayor Cooney called the meet ing to order and stated its object. Scferino Abeyta was elected sec retary and A. A. Sedillo inter preter. In order that everybody might have a clear understanding of the situation. Mayor Cooney caused all his correspondence with the eastern parties to be read and interpreted. It appears that the company contemplating the enterprise ask this city to furnish them two acres of ground beside the railroad and erect thereon the walls of an adobe building suitable to their pur pose. They ask further that this property be exempt from taxation for a period of live years, and that the city water be furnished them free of cost, also transportation for a carload of machinery and two men from Chicago. In return, the compa ny agrees to begin operations as soon as possible, employing from 15 to 20 hands during the first six months, twice that number during the second six months, and increasing the number there after as the needs of the business may require. On a motion a committee of twelve was chosen to take the company's proposition under ad visement, to find out by consulta tion with the business men of the city what could be done toward complying with the company's requirements, and to report at a meeting in the city hall Friday evening. Following arc the mem bers of the committee: Abran Abeyta, Juan José Baca, José E. Torres, Aniceto C. Abeytia, Ricar do Abeyta, Estevan Baca, A. D. Coon, 1 . G. Bartlett, J. E. Smith A. Winkler, P. N. Yunker, and M. Loewenstcin. On motion Mayor Cooney was requested to act as chairman of the commit tee. At the meeting of the commit tee last night it was simply rec ommended that additional infor mation be obtained from the eastern company before final action is taken. The effort to secure this enterprise should be heartily seconded by every citi zen of Socorro. The establish ment of a glove factory here means the expenditure by the proprietors of not less than $50, 000 a year. At the regular convocation of Socorro Lodge No. A. F. and A. M Tuesday night, J. P. Chase was raised to the degree of Master Mason. When the ceremony was concluded, Mr. Chase invited all present, nine teen in number, to repair to the dining room of the Park House where a table was spread for their enjoyment. Everybody ac cepted the proffered hospitality and was mighty glad he did, for the table was abundantly sup plied with a variety of appetiz ing dishes. Preshjteilan Services. Rev.

Lunch will be served during the evening and the boys will be given a jolly start on their mili tary career. More Hnse Itall. Saturday and Sunday base ball enthusiasm reached a greater height in Socorro than ever be fore. Large crowds were out to witness the games, San Miguel band discoursed its liveliest music from the grand stand, and every man on the diamond play ed as though his own life de pended upon the result of the game. The result was a vic tory for the Americans in both events, the score being 24 to 11 in the first game and 13 to 7 in the second. Considerable money is said to have changed hands on these results. The lovers of the sport are promised a lively game tomorrow. The uniforms of the American team have finally ar rived and both nines will appear in full dress. May the best man win.
