His home town is Tans, Ky., where Old Crow and Kdgewood are made, and he savs no better brands are made in the blue grass state. Our company starts from camp here Saturday morning at ( o'clock. Kverythiug is in readi ness. Major Louis Kossuth Han na has been here all the week. His red cross ambulance is ready. We shall have a young ladies' hospital corps mounted. Miss Nifa Montoya will have charge of this department, and will be escort to Major Hanna. We have one more famous character not mentioned in any of my former letters. Dr. Lee Hop Chung, nephew to the fam "ous Chinese statesman Lee Hang Chung, who was the richest man in China, also in the world. The doctor was compelled to flee from China during the Boxer trouble a few years ago. He lias been working in coal mines in different parts of the country. He drifted into Carthage last winter and has been working at the Bernal mine ever since, and has also been acting as interpre ter for about 20 Japs digging coal in that mine. The doctor is highly educated. He speaks Knglish, German, and Japanese. Look out for the doctor. You will see him in the parade, sure. My pretty Socorro Kuth came down Saturday with Jier uncle, Mr. Hilton. After 'inspecting ni y camp, which she pronounced A-one, we took a Ijoatride on lake Alameda for fully two miles and had our picture taken on the lake. The water lillies are beginning to bloom and it's just beautiful to take boatrides there now. They are going to form a yacht club here soon and send for a gasolirte launch which will hold a party of 15 or 20 per sons. Frantz Schmidt passed through this evening from his sheep camp in Sawmill canon. He will rush out to the San Andreas ranch and bring in his partner Mr. Storv. and several of his neighbors, including Colonel George Babers, whose energy and industry will soon make the Jornada del Muerto blossom like the rose. The colonel is taking in all the great gatherings now and will remain at the fair the lull three days. He says he can always make a correct estimate when he will get into town, but won't guarantee the exact time when he will get home. I received a telephone late to- hight from Telesfor Gabaldon saying that unless I put him in my company lie wouldn't let me pass Luis Lopez. leleslor says that anyone can tell he is i rough rider by looking at him He has ridden a government mule for over 25 years freighting for Mr. Hilton in Lincoln county. I am going to put him in charge of the rough rider grub wagon as assistant to my commissary sergeant. I had hard work to get Abel Chavez to take this position, as he was married last Monday to Miss Marcorfa Chav ez of Las Cruces. He didn't want to leave his bride during the march, but when I told him that his bride could ride with the young lady rangers where he could see her all during the pro cession he consented. Wishing your fair success, Truly yours, Mkkkii.l Kknnkdv. Captain Commanding the Juven ile Rough Kiders. ALELQUERQUE'S "BIG FAIR' It Will Brisk all Record in Extent and Quality of Amusement At tractions. Six months ago. when the of ficers were elected for the Twenty-seventh Annual New Mexico Fair, to le held in Albuquerque, Octo ber 7-12, it was predicted that the Twenty-seventh Fair would break all records in extent and quality of amusement attrac tions in skirting features and ex hibits, and in the amount of money used by the association in making the annual show. With the fair but a few days away, this prediction has leen surely carried out. The fair, which opens October 7th, will be, in every way, the biggest event of the kind that the southwest country has known. It embod ies all the features that made the festival of the Mountain and l'lain, in Denver, famous. It embodies all the features that made the l'ike, in St. Louis. famous. It will present agricul tural and live stock exhibits that will furnish a liberal education along the line of the possibility of New Mexico and the south west. In the first place, this year's fair Jias had money, and it takes money to make a fair. The Al buquerque business men started the ball rolling by subscribing a cool $10,000. As the fairs of recent years have been money makers instead of money losers, it is yet to figure out about how much money will be spent by the managers during the six days. The officers this year are ener getic young men, who are out to make a record, and who have spared no effort to make it. The sporting program is a fair indication of what we may be looking for during the big week at Albuquerque. Five base ball teams are already entered for the tournament, With the prospects good for more, for which $1,75' has been appropriat ed. For the first time since the fair was organized, twenty-seven vears ago, every harness race was filled within the time limit. There are six big harness races, four of these worth $1,000 each, the other two worth $500 apiece. For several of these races there are from nine to twelve entries. Heretofore, the largest number of entries has been four to six Also, more running horses will be in Albuquerque for this year's fair than at any two previous meetings. MAN KILLED BY LIGHTNING Everett Fuller of Ban Marcial Vic tim of Lightning' Bolt Yester day Afternoon. During the prevalence of one of the severest electrical storms ever known to visit the Jornada del Muerto, F.verett Fuller of San Marcial was instantly kill ed by lightning r riday after noon at aUut 4 o'clock.

MR. BURSUM GETS JUDGMENT Judge Parker Sustains Referee C. V. Saffbrd's Report. Territory Owe over If 4, 000. One more step, and a very im portant step, has been taken toward the final adjustment of Hon. II. O. Burs inn's accounts with the territory of New Mexi co. The latest development in the case is told in the following social dispatch of last Saturday from Silver City to the Albuquer que Citizen: II. O. Bursuni, former super intendent of the New Mexico penitentiary, was today given judgment for over $4. 0(H), the amount he claimed was due him in the adjustment of the disput ed accounts of the prison, and the report of Keferee C. V. Saf- ford, which showed that the ter ritory owed Mr. Bursuni this money, was sustained in every important detail. The case came up before Frank W. Dark er, judge of the fifth judicial district court. This case grew out of alleged shortages in the prison accounts at the time when II. J. llager- man was governor. The Albu querque Morning Journal pub lished what was said to le m expert report, declaring Burst. in short in his .accounts with the prison. The morning paper may now have to prove its assertions. Bursum paid into the prison accounts some two thousand dol lars under protest and filed suit under a law passed by the last legislature for an adjustment of the accounts of the prison. Saf- ford was appointed to investi gate the books of the prison and compiled a lengthy report which the court upheld. TKKKITOKY KAILKD TO I'KOVK CASK After preliminary argument, Attorney General A. B. Fall ad mitted that the territory had failed in its objections to the suit. Mr. Safford testified as to the correctness of the report made by himself. The attorney gen eral admitted that the territory could find no evidence against the correctness of the report. The attorney general asked that the interests of the territory be protected in any decree enter ed by the court also any interest of Ihe United States although there is none admitted by special Agent Holcomb, who said the government was not a party to the suit. The judgment was rendered after the court had inquired into all doubtful parts of the evi dence. After admitting that the terri tory was not in possession of any evidence to show the Safford re port incorrect, the attorney gen eral called attention to the fact that all monies from the appro priations were expended by war rants duly passed upon by the penitentiary commissioners. $100 Reward $100.

In a recent interview Govern or Curry is reported to have said that he is not in favor of the suggestion that the selection of delegates to a constitutional con vention be left to the governor, to himself or any other governor. Governor Curry then added: "Again I desire to say that I am strongly and unequivocally in favor of immediate single statehood for New Mexico and for the admission of the Terri tory into the sisterhood of states should an enabling act be passed at the coming session of the bOth congress by approval of the con stitution and by the statehood vote thereafter, provided Presi dent Koosevelt thinks favorably of the project and the Kepubli can senators and members of the house can le united in voting for an enabling act as soon as the (0tli congress meets."
