As Soon as the Water Can
Be Pumped Out, 500 Bar
rels Daily Expected.
ArUsia, N.M., Nov. 14. Oil men who
have been inspecting the oil field south
of Artesla pronounce it on of great
promise. After visiting: the Brown
well, leased by the Pecos Taller Oil
and Gas company, of which Maj. Love
joy, of Houston, Tex, is the president
and owner of fa controllng interest,
experts regard it as a remarkable well.
It has a flow of from 25 to 50 barrels
of oil a day at a depth of about 900
feet. This oil is mixed with 30 per
cent water, and comes from a six-inch
casing that was inserted in the eight
inch casing. Between the two casings,
at a depth of loo feet from the bottom
oi the well, a packer was 'placed to
shut off the artesian- flow from the
six-Inch casing. Artesian water con
tinues to flow between the casings.
Gas in large quantities accumulates
at the bottom or the six-inch casing
and at times escapes, throwing the
water and oil several feet above the
lop of the derrick. The weight of the
0u feet of water greatly retards the
llow of oil and the company has or
dered a pump to draw the oil from the
bottom oi the well. It is believed that
.is soon as all the water is removed the
a ell will hare a capacity of 509 barrels
'j I oil a day. The company is prepar
ing for this immense quantity of oil
irJ has built a reservoir 300 leet east
of the well that is 100 feet square and

Action Brought ia Kansas by One
Woman Agalnttt Another Remits
1b Acquittal by Six Others.
Wamego. Kan.. Jov. 14. Six women,
wives of prominent citizens of Wamego,
composed the jury in a laws-.it here
yesterday in which both the plaintiff
and defendant were women and in
which the ' -ntroversy was over the
ownership of four white Plymouth
Rock Pullets.
Mrs. George Raine, of Louisville, a
village "ear here, accused Mrs. iMina
.Tohnson. a neighbor, with the theft of
the fowls. Mrs. Johnson demanded a
trial by a jury of women.
The testimony showed that both Mrs.
Johnson and Mrs. Raine raised white
Plymouth Rock chickens and that they
both allowed their fowls to run at large.
After deliberating two hours, the Jury
returned a verdict of not guilty, basing
their decision on the presumption that
the poultry of two women living so
close together might easily get mixed.

Washington, D. C., Xov. 14. Although his pulse virtually had stopped, Wer
ner L. Hoffman was drawn back from the brink of the grave by use of the pulmo
tor and today physicians in a local hospital believe he will live.
Hoffman, a former member of the marine corps and with an enviable service
record in China and the Philippines, has been ill for some time because of fever
contracted in the Orient. Despondent, he is said to have taken 15 grains of a viru

with apparent success. Physicians regard the case as remarkable.
McManigal Declares Presi

Knowledge of Explosions.
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 14. Direct
charges that Frank M. Ryan, president
of the International Association of
Bridge and Structural Iron Workers,
had full knowledge of explosions and
that he even advised the dynamiters to
disguise themselves, were made by Or
tie E. McManigal in his confession at
the "dynamite conspiracy" trial today.
"I had blown up the Kansas City job,
August 23, 1910, and at Peoria on the
way back," McManigal testified, "Ed

Iron Workers' union, showed me some
non-union jobs he wanted me to blow

Ryan Sounded Warning.
"When I returned to the Iron Work
ers' headquarters in Indianapolis, Mc
Namara was not here. I saw president
Ryan. I told Ryan about the Kansas
City explosion and showed him a news
paper account of it. Ryan said:
" T want you fellows to stop coming

don t change your appearance enough.
When any one gets a good look at you
he will be sure to Know you the next
"I told him we were not reckless and
that no one knew what we were doing.

quarts of the explosive were stored In
the vault of the Iron Workers' office,
the witness said McNamara remarked:
"If this should explode there would
not be enough people left in
town Indianapolis to tell what hap
pened." McManigal then returned to Peoria.
"I asked Smythe what he would do
if there was any trouble in Peoria on
account of the explosion," said Mc
Manigal. "Smythe said he stood in
with the police and, nothing would be
Criticised By McNamara.
Mc Manigal testified he returned te
Indianapolis and procured 10 more
quarts of nitroglycerin, making 3
quarts for the jobs at Peoria on Sept.
4, 1910. He said he paid his expen
ses out of S300 given him by McNa

I had caused only three explosions I

convention at Rochester, N. Y., in

of the success of the plan of blowing
up nonunion jobs, saying the rail
roads were beginning to be afraid to
handle nonunion iron and steel.
Labor Leader on Witness Stand De

coln Were Inspiration tp Him.
Salem. Mass., Nov. J.4. Joseph J.
Ettor. on trial here with Arturo Gio
vannittl and Joseph Caruso, charged
with the Anna Lopizso murder during
the Lawrence textile strike, declared on
the witness stand today that Jesus
Christ and Abraham Lincoln were
sources of inspiration to him as a labor
Asked on re-direct examination by at
torney Fred H. Moore, of the Industrial
Workers of the World, as tp his re
ligion, Ettor replied:
"I am an early Christian."
"What is meant by that?"
"I mean I believe in Christianity as
Jesus Christ taught it himself."
"Did you ever read anything by
Abraham Lincoln?"
"Did anything of Lincoln's that you
read have anything to do with your
idea that labor should get the full pro
duct of its toil?" x
"It did." said Ettor, as he left the
witness stand, which he had occupied
for two days.
Court adjourned because of the Ill
ness of counsel for Giovaonltti, one of
the defendants. The latter will take
the stand tomorrow.
Turkish artillery on their way thxongh
New York, Nov. 14. Harry Horowitz,
otherwise known as ''Gyp, the Blood,"
the dandy of the four gunmen on trial
charged with murdering Herman Rosen
thal at Charles Becker's bidding, took
the witness stand today and swore that
the 'shots in frost of the hotel Metro
pole were fired by Harry Yallon, "Brid
gie" Webber, informers for the state,
and a third-. jaaB,. .mysteriously un
named. He denied every incriminating state
ment made by "Bald Jack" Rose and
said be and his companions did not even
hear of the murder until seven hours
after it had occurred.. They were with
in a stone's throw of the scene, whither
they had. gone at the stranger's, invita
tion, he said, and fled whoa they heard
the shots.
"Gyp," under the questioning of his
attorney, told of being in Webber's po
ker room, with Rose, Scheppe, Yallon,
Cirofici and a strange man whom he
did not know.
webtpr went out with the stranger,
but the two returned in 15 minutes.
The stranger was a man about five feet,
nine or ten inches tall, of stocky build,
and wore a slouch hat.
"Gyp" was not allowed to tell what
the granger said.
The four gunmen left the poker rooms
with the stranger, "Gyp" said. "Dago"
Frank said he was going home and the
others, including the stranger, walked
to the hotel Cadillac at 43d street and

"We stood there by the Cadillac," the
witness declared, "aid the strange man
walked across 42d street. He approached
Rose, Webber, Yallon and Schepps, who
were standing opposite the Metropole.
All five of them then walked over to
ward the Metropole, Webber and Yallon
"All of a sudden we heard a shot. Wc
saw Harry Yallon and Bridgie Webber ,
ana me stranger snooting. '
"How many men did you see shoot
"Those three, Harry Yallon, Bridgie
Webber and the strange man."
"As soon as we saw them firing," con
tinued "Gyp," "we ran for the subway.
A. train was just pulling in and we
boarded it without paving fare. We
rode to 145th street and Lenox avenue,
and went to our flat."
Admits He Told Falsehood.
Cirofici ("Dago Frank") was then at
the flat, the witness said.
The witness denied that Bose had
ever asked him and his companions to
murder Rosenthal. Rose's motive in
seeking' them, he said, was to assure
them that he had no part in the "fram
ing up" of "Big Jack" Zelig.
On cross examination, "Gyp" admit
ted that he had been convicted five
times for larceny offences and had
served several terms in penal institu
tions, but denied participation in vari
ous East Side holdups.
"Gyp" detailed his movements with
"Lefty" Louie from the, time of the

A. N. Brown Says Take Up
Grievances With. Them
and They Will Assist.
"If rates are not adjusted to reach
the territory which belongs to you, or
that you think belongs to you, the call
ing of the railroads' attention to it will
give It the fullest consideration. We
are not afraid of the interstate com
merce commission, the Arizona or New
Mexico railroad commission, but you
can accomplish more by taking It up
directj with us instead of taking it to
the commissions. "We feel better about
it. The railroads wish to do all they
can for you and it is needless to say
that the J51 Paso and Southwestern is
in narmony with those things."
This was the declaration of A. N.
Brown before the business men of Bl
Paso today, in discussing rates. Mr.

Walter S. Clayton, president of the
chamber, acted as chairman and intro
duced the three speakers, who talked
following the luncheon. "V. R. Stiles,
commanderinchief of the Keynote Trade
excursion to Arizona andjfew Mexico,
spoke first and told of t-ne good that
had been done by the trade excursion
of 1913.
"Do these trade trips pay? he asked.
He then proceeded to answer the ques
tion in the affirmative by saying that
to get acquainted was half the battle
and that such a trip as the last one
gives the business men a better chance
than they could otherwise have to meet
.the trade. He said that the country
clube of Douglas, Bisbee and El Paso
were responsible for one-half of the
trade acquaintanceship In the territory
visited by the trade excursion and that
the territory visited is El Paso terri
tory because of these acquaintances.
