The large court room in the court house was well filled Mon day evening at the hour appoint ed for the organization of a mili tary company for Socorro. By way of introduction to the formal proceedings, enthusiastic addres ses were delivered by Mayor M. Cooney, Capt. T. J. Matthews, Julian Trujillo, Prof. O. R. Smith, and Jesus Gallegos. San Miguel band furnished some of their best music for the occasion. There was no backwardness on part of the young men of the city to enroll as members of the company. The required number of forty-four was very soon sup plied. The election of officers resulted as follows: Captain, T. J. Matthews; first lieutenant, Seferino Abeyta; second lieuten ant, W. M. Swisher; first sergeant, O. R. Smith; field mu sician, Henry Chavez. Drill was then indulged in for two hours in the school of the squad and company.

Andy was al ways very popular in Socorro and many expressions of sympathy are heard for him. At last re port he was doing well. Sunday's Ball Game. The lovers of the national game who witnessed Sunday's performance had a rare treat. The local teams again met on the diamond, each bedecked in their new uniforms, and the play ing during several innings would have done credit to professionals. At the beginning of the game the Americans took a long lead and it seemed that they would win easily, but the Mexicans soon got their second wind and began to play ball in a style that gradually tied the score and fin ally, brought them off victors by a score of 14 to 10. Tomorrow's game is sure to be a rattling good one, for the Americans will make a desperate effort to recov er their lost laurals and the Mex icans will try equally hard to hold the laurals they have won.
