Mr. Rnrton was an emDloye of a Canadian Company, building at La Boquilla. Chi huahua, Mexico, a large aam to pro duce hydro-electric power for use in th minine- camns at Parral. and had been in charge of the cement testing laboratory for some months. On the morning of his death, he and a friend. A. F. Fraker. went into Santa Rosalia, and. after driving for some time about the streets, started for a bath at the hot springs. Near the outskirts of the town they passed several coaches alongside the curb and ln one or tnese were musi cians who were playing to advertise an event to come off In Santa Ros alia later in the dav. The bo VI coachman pulled well to the opposite ' side of the street in passing and Mr. Fraker says that just after they passed the last coach, he thought some one called to them irom it. out ne : cannot be sure what they said.

When the office of Dr. Robert E. Grieve had been, reached. Burton was - - .- .-..-, . -w .. ' carried to the dperatinsr table and a ! brief examination showed that his death had been instantaneous. The bullet, fired from a revolver of large calibre, had first passed through the lack of the coach and then struck Burton In the back of the neck, com pletely severing the spinal column. The only obvious explanation of this shootin? is in the fact that the man who did it was very drunk. He is a member of the Maderistic force occupy ing Santa Rosalia and is said to be known locally as a "bad man." There was some delay about his arrest, but on the day following. Gen.

It was simply a case of a drunken soldier who took a shot at a coach and chanced to kill Burton, his friends say, as there has been no anti-foreign sentiment in that section. As to Mr Burton's record on the work, William R Fuller, chief engineer and general manager, has frequently said that he was one of the most prom ising young men he had ever had ln his employ and that In steadiness and reliability he set a mark far above the average The body of deceased was brought out bv way of Marfa.

In the corporation court, on a charge of vagrancy. Judging from the testimony of the defendant and that of Jesse C. Stansel. chief of the city detectives, the winning of the contest depends solely on the ability to "rus tle votes by purchasing as many pa pers as possible; a candidate who de pends solely on her merits as a beauty is entirely out of the race. According to the defendant, he was approached on the proposition of se curing votes for one of the candidates in the beauty contest being conducted by the Times, and suggested the em ployment of a number of small boys at a given salary. The duty of the boys, as he detailed it, was to get out and secure as many papers as possible car rying votes.
