Dinner will be serv ed at the rate of 35 cents for adults and 25 cents for children. Everybody come and help a pood cause. As stated in these columns last week, when the county commis sioners met on Monday, the 10th inst., to canvass the election re turns from the various precincts of the county, there were served upon them a writ of injunction and one of mandamus which pre vented their proceeding1 with the canvass. The writs were issued out of Hon.. Dan'l II. McMillan's court, then in session at Lincoln. The mandamus ordered the coun ty commissioners to canvass the returns of San Antonio precinct made by judges elected by the voters on election day rather than the returns of the judges appointed by the county commis sioners, on account of alleged ir regularities in the mannc." of such appointment. The injunc tion ordered the commissioners n t to canvass the returns of any precinct in which Independent Republican ballots had been cast. As the commissioners were pro hibited by statute I rom examin ing the ballots, and therefore had no means of determining in what precincts such Independent Republican ballots had been cast, they could only await the action of the court. 'These writs were made returnable before Judge Baker at Albuquerque on Thurs day, the 13th inst. The trial of the case was taken up in Judge Baker's court Thurs day of last week and was ended late Saturday evening. The daintiff's were represetUcdfcy W... J. Childers of Albuquerque and Silas Alexander of this city; the defendant county commissioners, by Messrs. Fitch and Dougherty, the well known Socorro attorneys. A considerable number of the citizens of Socorro countv were present at the trial. At the con clusion of the trial the court or dered that the mandamus be sus tained, but that the , injunction be dissolved so far as to permit the county commissioners to can vass the election returns and is sue certificates of election on the face of such returns. The court found, furthermore, that the em blem on the Independent Repub lican ticket was unlawful and calculated to deceive and mislead the voters of said county, and therefore ordered Probate Clerk II. G. Baca rot to alter, change, or intermeddle with the ballots and to have custody of such bal lots iointly with Gabriel Mora and District Clerk John E. Grif fith until the further order of the court. On Monday, the 17th inst., the board of county commissioners met, canvassed the election re turns in conformity with the orders of the court, and issued certificates of election in accord ance witn the results oi ituir canvass, which is given in offic ial form on the fourth page of this issue of The Chieftain. Thursday notices of contest were filed in the office of the district clerk. The respondents have twenty days in which to file their answer. This brings the whole matter into court. The course of the case will be watch ed with intense interest by -every citizen of Socorro count)-. It may be added by way of comment that the injunction or dered the county commissioners not to canvass the returns of any precinct in which Independent Republican ballots were cast. This injunction the court dis solved. Attention is called to this fact for the reason that var ious papers of the territory have j either distorted this action of the court or have omitted all refer ence to it in their account of the proceedings. United Mato Court. United States court for the fifth judicial district will convene in this city Mouday, Hon. Dan'l II. McMillan presiding. Not many cases are now docketed, but others will probably be brought up during the session. A low Fact In Kejrnrd lo Thorn and the Mat uto Which Applic to the Cnnc. In order that the readers of the Chieftain may be properly in formed as to the matter in con troversy respecting the adoption of the emblem on the Republican ticket and thaton the Independent Republican ticket, the facts of the case are here given, also the statute applying in the case. The Republican county con vention met in this city on Thurs day, OctolKT 2. The report of the committee on resolutions was adopted that day. There is nothing in the resolutions or in minutes of the convention as pul lished in the three Republican papers of the county to indicate that the convention adopted any emblem whatever for the Repub lican ticket. This convention adjourned sine die at about six o'clock Friday afternoon, October 3. The Independent Republican convention was held in this city Friday afternoon, October 3. This convention formally adopted by resolution the Hag within a square as the emblem for its ticket, and this resolution as a part of the report of the commit tee on resolutions was published in the Chieftain of October 11. Loth the Republican and the .Independent Republican tickets were filed in the office of the pro bate clerk at 11 o'clock a. m., October 2'), the Independent Re publican ticket being handed to the clerk a few minutes before the other but both being recorded at the same hour.

Anybody with half an eye might have known several days ago that some enterprise of great pith and moment was on foot among the young ladies of So corro. There was an air of mys tery and of business withal in their coming and going that por tended great things. It has fin ally transpired that several of the young ladies of the city have organized an association to be known as the Society of Las Sol teras, the ostensible object of which is to perfect the members in the culinary art. Three rooms have been fitted up in the Grand Central building, one for a kitchen, one for a dining room, and one for a reception room, and at regular intervals the friends of the young ladies are to be invited to partake of their hospitality. On these occasions each member of the society is to place before the guests a product of her own skill in ' cooking. The young man or the old bach elor who fails to show a proper appreciation of the charms of Socorro's young ladies now de serves to die unsung. The mem bership of the Society of Las Solteras so far consists of Misses Madge Terry, Estelle Kiehne, Mamie Cortesy, Essie and Lena Price, Mary Lodwig, Mac Hard ing, and Ruby and Effie Berry.
