Santa Fe, N. M.f July 30. That
Eduardo Blanco Rabal of Madrid, the
distinguished gentleman who is dying
in a Spanish dungeon with a gun
shot wound In his breast, and whose
14-year old daughter is to inherit k
cool half-million dollars, apparently
has the proverbial nine lives of a cat,
has been discovered by former County
Commissioner Jose Inez Roybal, who
resides In Nambe, about fourteen
milesf rom Santa Fe. V
Mr. Roybal was a caller at the of
fice of the New Mexican today and
brought with him tho letters sent hlnl
by the dying Eduardo Blanco Rabal,
and an examination of the documents
at once recall the letters which havé
been flooding this country for many
months, much to the disgust of the
postal authorities. In fact Uncle Sam
has seen fit to treat Mr. Rabal's cor
respondence with discourtesy and no
letters addressed to him or his agents
in Spain are forwarded. But Rabal is
equal to the emergency, for he has
his supposed relatives to whom he ap
peals in this country, cable him, and,
Mr. JRoybal spent $9 or more on ca
bles before he came to the conclusion
that the whol affair Is the same old
hoax which ?.as been drawing thous-

The letters are rather cleverly writ

and Incidentally holding out tempting
financial rewards.

Washington, D. C, July 30. More
than forty million dollars In the larg
er cities ot the United States, goes to
pay liquor license -fees and then some.
The extent to which drinking men
help pay the expenses of government
in cities is indicated by the census
report covering the finances for the
year J Ó08 in cities 30,000 or more.
These figures show an aggregate of
forty-wo million dollars paid for li
censes, or a gain of three millles over
the previous year. The increase is due
to the large fees exacted in most of
the larger cities. The licensed drink
ing places numbered 67,131, a de
crease in three years of about 4,000.
This is due largely to the fact that
a number of cities went "dry." The
states claiming the largest number of
saloons compared to their population
.were Texas, Wisconsin and New York.
