To the Editor of the Ltnci.AL: I wish to correct through the col umns or your paper a lew Biis-siaie-merits made by the Silver City Enter. prise, which seems to be endowed with unlimited facilities for getting things wrong. In speaking of my escape it says I was liberated by one Frank Barrett, which Is not true; and again it says 1 was bound over to await the action of the grand Jury, which Is also untrue. V My preliminary trial began on the z,m nisi, ana was not completed at 4 o'clock the 25th when court adjourn cd until 9 o'clock the next day. I was put in charge of f red Golden while Deputy banders went to procure guards for the night. When Mr. San dcrs returned we walked across the street to where he was standing when Mr. Golden stopped and spoke to Mr. Sanders and I walked on into a saloon. As my trial had been a oucsided af fair I intended to leave and when I looked back and saw Golden and San ders in conversation, I walked out of the saloon by the buck door and kept on geiug. I did not sec Barrett at the time nor since, but I beard him speak and saw tho flash of his gun and heard the shots when he killed Evans, Neither Mr. Golden nor Mr. Sanders were to blame. 1 had btcn under ar rest for two weeks and my only bond was my word, but wheu Judge Ginn arrived he made objections and I was taken in custody. When I was releas ed on my word and had nothing but the vigilance of the ofllccrs to contend with, I took advantage of the situa tion and walked away. These are facts and defy contradiction. I do net wish to comment upon the subject nor tho causes which brought it about, as the public may ascertain the particulars from other sources. Neither do. I wlih to evado justice, but I do not want to get into the clutches of that bundle of contradic tions and technicalities they call law, which seems to have ho other purpose than ti smother, cover up and conceal the truth and defeat the ends of jus tice. When 1 am convinced that can have justice, and permitted to show up tho facts In the case, I am ready and willing to stand my trial, and the officer need not look for me as I will come to them. I have commuted no crime, violated no law, but have simply done my duty to myself, to my family and to human ity. ' Yours respectfully. WOOD.

As a great many of the readers of the Liberal have heard, the case In regard to the Lordsburg school trus tee has been decided, and was decided against the party the Lihkiial thought was entitled to hold the place. Judge Full held us follows: Mr. Marble was elected, he took tho oath of orTlcc, he mailed the oath of office to the super intendent of schools, the oath was not received by the supcriutendent of schools within the time prescribed by law. The law provides that a man shall be elected, shall take the outh of office and shall Me it in the office of tho supcriutendent of schools before the first Mouday of July. Mr. Marble failed to do all the law required and so is not entitled lo the office. Judge t all says this is good law to bis cer tain knowledge, for he wrote the law and he construed it. Last Thursday or Friday some per son went away with one of J. A. Chen owith's horses that wus . nobbled near his hotisc. It was subsequently found that at about tho sama time a saddle was stolen from W. it. Marble's barn. The supposition Is that both saddle ana norte were stolen rjy the same person and that the thief was a man who was working for Mr. Marble soino The Cure For Scrofula iu 'once supposed to b the touch ot royalty.
