McMillan of Socorro, to a Journal reporter at the Alvarado last niyht. "The formation of three railroad com anies to lmild lines I'roiU that place to the Carthage coal fields and the immediate prospect of a fourth, has served to wake the town to a life it has not known for years, and to make the situa tion in that section very interest ing." Juilc McMillan is one of the principal movers in the organiza tion of one of these railroad com panies, which propose to lap the coal beds at Carthage. His com pany,' like the others, is ready to proceed with the construction of the ten miles of railroad, and it seems to hold out the prospect of very interesting times when the race for the b.'st rights of way begins. Jud-e McMillan left last iiijfht for Santa Ke. The situation at San Antonio is sufficiently unusual to be iter estinr. Some vears airo the Santa Fe railroad built a branch to the Carthage coal fields. Later they tore up the track believing that the tra flic from the Carthago district did not warrant the expense of operation. Lately, however, the attention of miners and engineers has been called afresh to the Carthage fields by the discovery of new bods, which, in the estimation of experts, will turn out immense quantities of coal for twenty years. The old rade used by the Santa Fe is still standing practically intact, and all three of the proposed lines arc anxious to et control of this ready made road bed. The line, however, is all over public domain, and it will be necessary to ret the consent of the secretary of the interior for its use. Here, airain, a race between the three companies seems prohauie. Anoth er point over which there has been some rivalry is a bridge over tho Kio tirando at San An tonio, which all three companies desired to use. This has been settled in a manner which leaves the railroad builders up in the air higher than before by the Socorro county commissioners, who found they could, play no favorities. "A meeting of the county com missioners of Socorro county was held last niirht at which the mat ter of the use of the San Antonio bridge was discussed," said Judge McMillan. "The commission very properly decided that it had no right to give the use of the bridge exclusively to any com pany, and its decision was that any or all of the railroads could use it, provided they maintained it free of charge to the county for the use of both as a railroad and wagon bridge. There isconsidera ble freight to be hauled out of Carthage, and the expense of operation of tho road will be small, so that there may be busi ness for more than one road. Some of those interested in the proposed lines hold coal lands in the district, but one at least of the railroad companies is going in solely for the freight business that is to be had. "I am informed that within the next week another corporation will be formed to build a fourth road into the Carthage district, this one to come down the east bank of the Kio (rande from San Marcial. This line will have three miles more of road tu build, but it will have the advantage of no bridges, whereas there are two on the other lines, as proposed from San Antonio." "And which of these four com. panies is likely to come out on top?" was asked. "That is something' I am not now prepared to answer," said Ju'le McMUUa. Iü. P. s. lioor.V s; .

The national democratic con vention began operations in St. Louis Wednesday and its labors have continued until today. Karlv this morning the dispatches an nounced that Alton 15. Parker had been nominated on the first ballot for the presidency. No nomination has vet been made for the vice-presidency, though the chances are strongly in favor of Mayor Rose of Milwaukee. The platform contains the usual democratic planks, except that it contains no money plank whatever. This is a victory for Lryan as against Hill, who fought hard tor a sound money plank. The names that aroused most enthusiasm in the convention were those of Parker, Cleveland, and Rr van. ( oiiiaiaiiicati il. I'M tor Chieftain: In last week's Chieftain it was stated that on the previous Sun day a party consisting of two young women and four or live young gentlemen left San Anto nio on a hand car excursion for Socorro and. a rain storm- intercepting-, every member was soaked to the skin belore reaching their destination. The article concluded with the words, "There was nothing dry about that picnic." the true tacts of the allair are as lollows: on that isunday afternoon two young ladies and their escorts wont to Socorro on a hand car intending to take sup per at the. Windsor and return to San Antonio before dark. Put when the rain was over, which, bv the way, occurred while the party was at the hotel, the agent at the depot advised them not to go home on the hand car as trains were on the road, and besides there was danger of washouts. The young people returned to the hotel and awaited the southbound passenger, which was on time. Tho party arrived lioine perfectly safe and dry, and as tho Wi ndsor hotel has a roof and the train was likewise protected tjie statement made last week was not true. The honorable person who contributed such a falsehood to bj printed in the Chieftain might not be so elated over his intended maliciousness if he realized of what little credit a falsehood is to him and how much it adds to his present uublotted reputation.
