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

ers became apparent and the ef

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

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.
