I am going to have some but tle scarred veterans ilmt have been under fire in tuy proassion. Here is Dick Towser; who went through the battle of El Caney, and was wounded while climbing up San Juan hill. He will be there, also Antonio Montoya, nephew of Chief Victorio, the famous Apache chief whose raids through New Mexico and Ari zona in 1881 and 1882 cost these two territories several hundred lives and whose tribe of some 300 braves were captured by Luis Terrazas of the state of Chihuahua and all killed, will be with my company. Antonio was bought from the famous chief by the late General Estan islao Montoya when he was four years old, and has lost one arm lighting his own tribe and blood in the different Indian wars. My chief surgeon will be Doctor G. II. Bacon, the well known physician and surgeon of San Antonio and Carthage. The doctor is an old veteran and has seen actual service. He claims to have been through the battle of Buena Vista where every man on both sides fell except him. This battle is not recorded in history, as the genial doctor is too modest to -tell-"of it. You will sec the veteran there with the rank of captain. The red cross ambulance will be driven by Major Louis Kossuth Ilanna, an old friend of my partner Mr. Hilton anda pioneer citizen of San Antonio. Mr. Hanna is known as "Mark Ilanna" here on account of his staunch repub lican principles, having always voted the republican ticket since general Grant's first term. Mr. Hanna started in life right and has been on the right track ever since. He was born in Beaver county, Pa., the same year that Louis Kossuth, the famous Hun garian patriot was visiting the United States and spoke at Pitts burg. He was named in honor of the famous patriot by Kev. Arthur B. Bradley, the pioneer Methodist preacher of Beaver county. Major Ilanna ran the pumping station here that fur nished ten carloads of water each day for the old Carthage mine, also the water that made the first commercial coke shipped out of the territory. Mr. Ilanna likes little boys and is always ready to help them out and give them a good time. There will be several business floats from here. Prof. P. A. Marcellino, who has taught the San Antonio school for the last four years, will have a float of boys and girls from his school, k'obert Mclntyre and John Mc Kinley, superintendent of the Allaire - Emerson mine, have promised a whole wagon load of miners in their working clothes. Besides, they will bring with them the baseball team from Carthage. John Mclntyre of the Allaire-Mclntyre company, who has made a great success of the chicken business here, will send up a float showing the different varieties of poultry, which com prise all the leading brands pro- duced in that line, including geese, ducks, peacocks, and Guinea hens. Buster Bill Simpson is getting alone all right drilling my men. He tells me now that he docs not dig coal, but is the rope rider at the Hilton mine. The rope brings out all the coal dug at that mine. You can.lell Ruth, that pretty Socorro girl, that my brother Marvin was two years old today and that I have-concluded to take him along and let him ride on the red cross ambul ance wagon with Comrade Ilanna and that there is room for her. also. With best wishes for the suc cess of the Socorro county fair, I am Your friend, Mkrrill Kennedy.

Mayor Bursum inaugurated a movement veveral months ago for the much needed improve ment of Socorro's streets. At that time some of the unsightly adobe ruins in the vicinity of the plaza were demolished and the material was spread over the deep layer of sand around the puunc parx. imsmaae a vast improvement in conditions that n ad existed so memory of man 1 . . at. a long inai me .!. . runneth not to the contrary." Another step that Mr. Bur sum has taken is to urge proper ty owners, along Manzanares avenue especially, to remove the old, dilapidated hoard walks that have been a disgrace to the appearance of the city's princi pal business street and a menace to life and limb for years. Sher- ill Aniceto C. Abeytia was the hrst to build a cement walk on ! under the constitution prepared, the avenue in front of his proper- ! which would save a great deal of ty and on the side of the post- i time and would also satisfy Con office block on California street. gress. in a large measure, as to A. D. Coon has had a force of , our qualifications for selfgovern- men at work this week construct-1 ing the same kind of a walk in front of his property on the avenue, and contracts have been let for the construction of a standard cement walk in front of Henry Chambón' business prop erty and the entire Masonic block from the plaza to W. II. Byerts' vacant lot across the avenue from the poatoffice. Mr. Byerts has promised to continue this walk to California street. Additional walks of the same sort may confidently be expected just as soon as the work can pos sibly be done. It is hoped to have most of this work done be fore the fair. All this consti tutes an improvement for Socor ro that it would be hard to over estimate. But that is not all. Mr. Bur sum has put several forces of men at work demolishing the un sightly, ruined adobe buildings that have "reared their horrid fronts" to all beholders for years. The material in. these walls makes excellent treets and that is exactly the use that it is being put to. Lower Man zanares avenue is being gritded up and low places about the pla za and elsewhere filled. The street cleaning force, also, will soon be set to work and all streets and alleys given a thorough renovation. All this work, too, has long been needed, and when it is completed much will have been accomplished toward putting the Gem City into a proper condition in which to receive her visitors at the fair. Hotels, restaurants, and room ing houses will not raise their prices during the fair. P. J. Savage, the manager of the fair, has arranged with the proprie tors of such' establishment that there shall be no extortion. Subscribe for The Chieftain. MR. BURSUM ON STATEHOOD. Chairman Republican Territorial Central Committee Favor Con . atitutional Convention. Hon. H. O. Bursum. chairman of the republican territorial ceil tral committee, has expressed himself emphatically in favor of making another determined ei fort for separate statehood for New Mexico, and he Í9 of the opinion that there is now an ex cellent prospect that the terri tory will be granted the boon she so long has sought. As usu al. Mr. Bursum gives clear and weighty reasons for the hope that in in him. In an interview published in a recent issue of the Santa Fe New Mexican. Mr. Bursum says: "Ninety-live jut cent of the citizenship of Now Mexico is heartily in favor of statehood. People, are anxious now, more than ever, to have a voice in the affairs of the national govern ment. I tielieve, if we were ad mitted to statehood, that the new state would take on rapid strides in the line of develop ment and progress. Too ener getic action in this direction can not lie taken. I think the large majority cast by the citizens of New Mexico for joint statehood shows conclusively that our peo ple are extremely anxious to be admitted into the Union under almost any reasonable terms ob tainable. The joint statehood j proposition has been declared oil by the President, and separate statehood is therefore the only live issue at the present time. Of course, our people have al ways been more favorable to separate statehood than joint statehood. The chief ambition ol tlie majority ol our citizens has been to attain complete citi- zensntp, guaranteed bv the con-1 i stitution, and the privilege of i . ....... . I. . i 1 . governing tnemseives and man aging their own affairs. I think it would lie wise at- this time to consider the assembling of a con stitutional convention, which should be held in time to have ready a constitution to be pre sented to Congress at the coming session, December next. We should send a strong delegation to assist our Delegate in Con gress and make an active fight for admission at this session ment "President Koosevelt should feel kindly towards New Mexico and I believe he will. New Mexico has been loyal to the President and upheld his poli cies loyally in so far as the same were within the jurisdiction and power of the people. The local fights and local factional differ ences which may exist in the territory, should e buried for the time being and the slogan of every good citizen from now un til the passing of the enabling act by Congress, should be state hood for New Mexico. If we have any quarrels to settle, let us settle them as citizens of the new ktate." $100 Reward $100.

METEOR SHADES THE EARTH Ita Terrifying Appearanca at Santa Roaa Followed by Trcmendoua Exploaiona. The following account of the appearance and effect of a tre mendous meteor was contained in Tuesdays dispatches: At about 3:30 Monday after noon what must have been an immense meteor passed over San ta Kosa in a northeasterly direc tion. Shortly after it passed, some say one minute, some two and some ten, two terrific explosions. toi lowed by a rumbling noise, shook the earth like an earth quake. The First National bank build ing, and school house and the Mptt hotel, all large stone and brick buildings, were shaken un til their occupants thought they would fall. SHOOK KNGINK9. The engineers of the switch engines in the yards of the Kock Island said their engines felt like thev were leaving the rails. At Los Lanos, a station on the Rock Island, nine miles north east of Santa Kosa. the meteor was seen by many. The clearest description at that point was given by Harry Miner and wife, who were driving in a buggy a few hundred yards south of the station. To them it appeared to p.ns in front of them a bright streak im mediately followed bv a white li.'ht and a milky and sinikv Hi peara nee in the sky. Mr. Miner savs lie drove some distance belore the two awful explosions occurred. this would indicate that the I meteor traveled a nuintier of miles further before exploding. EXPLODED NKAK TOWN. Of the many who witnessed a part of the flight of the monster meteor in Santa Rosa perhaps none saw more of it than Helen Burnett. She says: "I saw a bright streak in the sky go from overhead straight to the east. Then where the streak was the sky filled with milk. Then it thundered awfully, twice." Workmen about the round house here spoke of the milky appearances of the sky after the meteor passed. The place where the meteor fell could not have been nearer than 25 miles of Santa Rosa, and as the jar ol the explosion was like an earthquake here the meteor must have been of stu pendous size. MKTKOK SÜKN !N ALB CQ V K K QU K . This meteor is believed to be the same one that was seen by a number of people at and near Albuquerquu, who supposed it fell near the southeastern end of the Sandia mountains. The hour is the ame and indications point to the Santa Rosa meteor as the one in question. FAIR WILL BE BIG THING Hou. Harvey Richarda Booata for the Fair While in Albuquerque. According to Territorial Sena tor Harvey Richards of San Mar cial, who arrived in Albuquer que vesterday, Socorro county is going to have a great big fair on the last three days of this month, says the Albuquerque Journal. "Socorro county has an enor mous territory to draw from for an occasion of this kind," said Mr. Richards. "The live stock industry is second to that of no other countv in the territory, and the stock show should be a dandv. The Socorro jieople are working hard and I am sure will have a big crowd and a very creditable entertainment. "Socorro county is very pros perous this year. The hheep have done better than ever, pri ces for wool were good and prices for lambs are higher than for years. The mining industry is moving ahead rapidly, and on the whole, the country has never been in more prosperous condi tion." Mrs. Mary Selliuan, who had been a guest of Mrs. W. D. New comb for a few days, returned to her Santa Fe home Monday morning. Mrs. Sellman seemed very favorably impressed with Socorro and regretted her inabili ty to prolong her visit.
