To The Chieftain:
Colonel Charles Owen II lt ol
Bourlmn county, Ky., wioie the
following poem for the lough
riders at their camp l.iM eening:
"Strang cleelrioal afiptijiKet

We have our wireless telegraph.
We Hail through air auJ ea,

The old-style stomachache i

We eat our creamery butter
that never saw a cow;
Progress is our motto,
Modern times have Come to stay,
Hut we rough riders pratice charily
in the good old-fashioned way"

ry the big
Hag for the rough
rulers in their parade. 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,

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
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
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

ing. Mr. Khodes will pitch for
the Socorro team during the base
ball games at the fair. He is a
pitcher of exerience and profes
sional skill, as is evidenced by
the fact that he has been signed
by the St. Louis National League
team for the next season. It
looks a little as though the team
that wins from Socorro during
the fair games will have to be a
good one.

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.
After preliminary argument,
Attorney General A. B. Fall ad
mitted that the territory had
failed in its objections to the
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 talking about the dipping

"The dipping work has leen
completed, and we are now fin
ishing an inspection of the sheep
dipped. The sheep that I have
seen are splendid looking atli-'
ma Is. The cattle and other live
stock in that country are in ex

in better shape today than ever
lie fore, and the grass is unprece

"Where nothing but arid land
existed some months ago, with
only inesquite and s.ige brush
growing, high grass is in abund

the most valuable public pas

the recent heavy rains, which

Confident of Netting Fortune
From His Mining Claims.
Attorney Klfego Baca, of Al
buquerque, who was in the city
yesterday, is pretty well convinc
ed that he has a good thing in
the two mining claims he is
working in the Aniuus mining
district two and a half miles
north of Ilillsborro, Sierra coun

can. The names of the two
claims are the San Antonio and
the Sophia. He has a shaft on
the Sophia 1M) feet deep, and
several workings on the San An

He has struck a vein from which
he has received assays showing
gold amounting to $4M) to the
ton. This streak is from' two to
eight inches, clear and defined
and is improving as depth is at
tained, lie has eight men at
work and is putting considerable
ore on the dump. Chances for a
sale are very good and the par

investigated by competent min

a sale may be closed at nn early
Governor Curry Loaves No Chance
for Mistake As to His Position.
In a recent interview Govern

that he is not in favor of the
suggestion that the selection of
delegates to a constitutional con

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

vote thereafter, provided Presi

of the project and the Kepubli

house can le united in voting for
an enabling act as soon as the
