THE SENATE ADJOURNS UNTIL MONDAY (ie.ieriil Sutlfiidiim Thut Result of So rorro Count)' Flection Arc to He Determined before Juilire McMillan. Thursday was the last day of the period within which the re spondents in the county electioti contest proceedings might lile their answer to the notices of the contestants. On that day a hearing was had before Hon. Dan'l 11. McMillan in this city, lion. II. M. Dougherty appear ing for the respondents and lion. W. B. Childers for the contest ants. Short sessions of the court were held on Thursday and Fri day during which certain pre liminaries were arranged prepar atory to the trial of the case. Mr. Dougherty moved that the contestants be required to fur nish bonds for costs. The con testants objected but afterwards withdraw their objections ami agreed to lile such bonds. The contestants filed a replica tion in one case to the answer of the respondents to the original notice of contest and it is under stood that replications in the other cases will be tiled soon. The examination of the ballots will begin on Wednesday of next week. The hearing of evidence for the contestants will begin be fore Judge McMillan on the same clay. The respondents will be gin to introduce their testimony on Monday, December 22. At yesterday's session an in teresting question arose as to the manner in which the ballots could be inspected. Mr. Chil ders contended that they must be inspected by the court. Mr. Dougherty contended, on the other hand, that in accordance with section 1648 of the compil ed laws the county commission ers should inspect the ballots in the presence of the interested parties and return the results under seal, and that it.was neces sary to comply with the require ments of this section without determining whether the court could or could not afterwards permit the ballots to be intro duced as evidence. The' court sustained Mr. Dougherty's con tention. There is a general feeling of satisfaction that this case is to be tried before Judge McMillan. Confidence is expressed that both parties to the contest will have an impartial hearing and that the case will be decided on its merits. It is to be hoped that the same feeling will continue to prevail after the decision is rendered. COURT PKOCEEDIXUS. Losses Adjusted. The insurance adjuster who was in the city Saturday from Denver closed his business in a manner that was satisfactory to those who were unfortunate enough to suffer losses at the time of the burning of the Grand Central last week.

Call on Leeson before make up your mind what Christmas present shall be. you that Y.rrj Hemneriitlc Senator and Tireho Repiihllean Are Counted upon to Support the OinnihtiH Hill. Special dispatches from Wash ington under date of Thursday, December 11, to the Santa Fe New Mexican are to the follow ing effect: The statehood fight commenc ed in eurnest yesterday afternoon when the senate assembled. The omnibus statehood bill for the admission of New Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma as states, was called up. Senator Bever idge presented a majority report from the committee on territories. Many of the positions and con clusions taken in the report are extremely unfair, illogical, and not borne out by the facts and evidence submitted. The minor ity report of Senator Ouay, sign ed by him ami all the Democratic members of the committee, is very strong and recommends the immediate passage of the omni bus statehood bill without amend ments. Senator Nelson, a mem ber of the committee, made a shrewd move by temporarily withdrawing the substitute bill, submitted by the committee for the creation of a state out of Ok lahoma and Indian Territory. This was done in order to pre vent a vote upon the substitute bill, which would have been a test vote ami by which the sub stitute for the omnibus statehood bill would have been tabjed. The opponents of the statehood bill were afraid to bring the sub stitute bill to a vote and hence j temporarily withdrew it. A careful canvass of the senate shows that every Democrat in that body will vole for the omni bus statehood bill when a vote is reached and that it is reported that 12 Republican senators are absolutely pledged to support it and to vote for it when the bill comes up for that purpose. The opponents of statehood are fight ing against the bill to gain time and to keep it from coming to a vote. These tactics may be suc cessful for a time, but cannot in the end win, so say and figure the friends of statehood for the three territories both in and out of the senate. WHAT HAS THIS TO PO WITH static noon? Last evening, at the office of the Hotel Willard, Thomas Smith, ex-chief justice of the Territory of New Mexico, with out a word, struck Hon. Thomas B. Catron, ex-delegate to con gress, in the chest with his um brella. Mr. Catron, who was sitting on a sofa, arose and both men clinched. Friends, however, rushed in and separated them, taking Mr. Smith out of the hotel. The statehood fight is hot. STATICHOOI) BILL, C.OICS OVER. 1 he statehood bill went over until Monday and the senate agreed that when it adjourns to day it will be until Monday. There is a broken water pipe on the west side of the plaza that needs attention. A streak of mud and water across the street has caused people who pass that way no little inconven ience for the last two months.

There has been much more than enough of that sort. of deviltry committed in the city of 1 late and the fact that it has gone j unpunished will only make the I punishment of the perpetrator the more severe when he is caught, as he is sure to be.
