It Is about fifteen years since they have had a istlce or cons table in Gold Hill. The people-there say they have no use for such of ficers. I n. N, Reno, the Douglas brewer, who has frequently been In Lords burg with the motor car people, was here again last Saturday, but was do ing his traveling with a Pullman ticket Instead of a Lozler car. ""There was a Jobbed hold up In El Paso this week. A private detective agency held up a card room In one of the hotels, and gathered in much money and many diamonds. One of the detectives had tipped the police and the holdup men were arrested be fore they got out of the building. George Hornbrook left the first of the week, for Phoenix, .where he In tends to stay until the Gold Hill country gets thawed out. He has al ways heard that It wat warm at Phoenix. When he gets over there and finds Ice he probably will want to hike back. Mrs. D. II. Wright was In from her mountain ranch the first of the week, having herd that her son, S.J.

The regular annual meeting of the stockholders of the First National bank was held Tuesday for the elec tion of directors for the ensuing year. The directors who were In office were re-elected, and the directors re-elected the officers of the bank to serve an other year. The surveyors who had been at work In the Animas valley, have com pleted their work, except 'marking some corners, which they could not do, as they had to run out of the iron markers. They have left for the southern portion of the county, In tending to return and mark the corn ers later. When E. E. Kyes went to Califor nia, to be a farmer, he put a pump, windmill, tank, on his place, and piped water all over his house. After the California blizzard Mrs. Kyes wrote him that the freeze bursted the pump and much of the pipe, and the plumber estimated It would cost MO for new material, besides the labor to repair the damage done by the freeze. Captain Fred Fornhoff went to the City of Mexico with a requisition for Andres Calles, the Grant County murderer who escaped from the pen itentiary, and was captured at Juarez. Before he got back to Juarez with the necessary papers Calles had made an other get away, and was once more at liberty. Some crazy newspaper correspond ent at Phoenix sent out a wild report last week, . regarding the Arizona Eastern. He said the company had abandoned the old route through the box on the Gila, which may, or may not be true, and Is going to build from Queen Creek to Superior, thence up the Gila, through Thatcher and Solomonvllle, passing south of Clif ton aud Morencl, and then northeast to Silver City. The correspondent does not say what kind of a track the road will lay from the Gila river south of Clifton and Morencl, but It will probably put In aeroplane service George Bailey, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. G, W. Bal lev met with a serious accident last Sunda7. Ha was scuffling with his sister when the point of a pair of scissors he had In Is hand stuck In his rlirht eve. The eye ball will he saved, but there is no lance of saving the eye. This Is the second such accident that has oc curred In Lordsburg this winter. The son of Charles Tyson losing an eye, a few months ago, by sticking a knife lie was playing with, In the eye. II. J. McGrath motored over from Silver City lat Saturday. It had snowed the night before, and the axles of his machine scraped the snow from Sliver City to Whitewater, from there on It was not so deep. He says a machine works nicely In the snow, if it Is dry, as this was. As long as Mr. McGrath has been sheriff he has never missed being on hand at the justice of the peace election in Lords burg. In the United States court at Al buquerque last weeek the cases against the Long S land and cattle company, and J. F. Horn for eject ment from lands balonglng to the public, were dismissed. As the Long S company has long since gone out of business and Horn has long since left the country It would be Impossible to enforce an ejectment against them. The land in question lies -In the Animas valley. The road commissioners for Grant county had a meeting In Silver City last week, and talked over roads. Be fore doing anything they want to see the various roads in the county, and this Is no time to go road looking. K B Ownby, representing the southern half of the county, told the board what was needed In this section, In cluding an east and west road across the county from the Luna county line, east of Separ, to the Arizona line at Rodeo, and a road northeast from Separ, through the corner of Luna county, to White Water, that will enable the people from the southern section to reach the county seat. It was agreed that when the weather moderated enough so that it would be comfortable to travel the board should make an Inspection trip over the principal roads of the county, to see what was needed. A petition was circulated this week requesting the government to fire J. II. McClure from the weather office The pjtl toners claim that aman who will dish up such weather In New Mexico as we have had the past week has no right to hold the oftlce. It has been nothing but snow and cold weather. Lots of snow and more cold weather. The snow has frozen to the ce nent walks, which are on the north side of the buildings, where the sun' docs not reach, and they are the slip periest propositions known in this section. Saturday it thawed up a little, but not enough to clear the sidewalks, and Sunday It was colder than before It tried to thaw. Mr. McClure, who has been giving us this cold weather, is a native of the sunny south, and ,can manage summer weather all right, but he got to ex perimenting with some winter dope, and the machine got away from him, and he has not been able to secure concrol again. Here Is hoping It will turn turtle with him, and put him out of condition to work It any longer. The county commissioners had but little business last week besides the auditing of bills, but did not have time to add them up, and so did not know how large a dividend they could pay. As there will be a special meet ing today, to count the votes for cons tables and Justices of the peace, the matter of declaring a dividend was postponed until that meeting. The mattar of locating the new hospital to be erected by the Ladles Associa tion came up. The hospital is now located on ground owned by the coun ty. The Association has been given $0,000 with a provision that It shall be used to build a hospital on the town side of the arroya. The county owns the block south of the court house, and has agreed to let the asso ciation use the three southern lots for hospital purposes. The next lots to the south- are owned by Theodore Carter, and he objects to having the hospital so near his house, and of fered to trade with the hospital, tak ing these three lots, and giving them four lots, equally near his house, to tbe west, but up on a hill that has no road leading to It. The Association did not trade, and Mr. Carter notified the commissioners that If they at tempted to build there that legal pro ceedings will be taken to stop It. As slstant District Attorney Ryan told the commissioners that Mr. Carter could do nothing. The commissioners told the Ladles to Interview some of the legal friends of the Association, and If they got satisfactory advice to go on with their building. An ap proprlatlon of 1500 was made to build a Jail at Lordsburg, and the citizens of this place have the permission of the commissioners to spend as much more money as they want to on the LOST A lady's open face gold watch, In Itlals engraved on back (F.

Mares Wanted I want to buy one or two cars of cheap mares, also some very cheap stock horses. Give price, weight and flesh. C. A. Wassow, Tahoka, Texas. Cashier Coon, of the First national bank, added to the cold of the cold weather last week, by distributing some large calendars, advertising the bank, which were decorated with a picture of a herd of buffalo in a snow storm. It was afine picture, but It gave one the shivers to look at It this weather. Probably it will look fine next June. Until then turn the pic ture to the wall. A. Feathers, who contemplates re claiming 320 acres of land In the val ley north of townj left yesterday for the state of Coahulla, Mexico, to Inspect a larga body of land for some; Montreal people, who have an option; on It. If Mr. Feathers' report is mvuruuiu miiu win uo iiurcuu&eu.f Mr. Feathers Is one of the syndicate that contemplate making the pur-i chase. Whether It Is made or not Mr. Feathers will return and reclaim the desert land which he entered here, i The Justice election passed off qui-' etly last Monday, although a good vote was cast, 178 votes being counted out of the box. They stood for Justice, M. W. McGrath, 110; J, L. Augustine, 68; majority, 42. For constable, Oscar Allen, on both tickets, 142, N. Hughes, 1: Oscar nunter, 1; and Ira Tollman, 5. A. W. Mornlngstar, who was Mr. Augustine's political man ager, as soon as the result was an nounced, congratulated Judge Mc Grath on his re-election, and told him that the older he got the harder he was to beat. This was the biggest majority he ever got, and the largest percentage of the votes except when he had Ben Titus for an opponent. He has held the offlce continuously for twenty-one years. . The Borderland route Is the only known road in the country that Is do ing business, accommodating travel, has motor cars running over it every day, and Is not urging congress for an appropriation. The people on the road realize that better results can be obtained by spending what money they can raise in improving the road than by sending men to Washington to work for an appropriation. The route is now In such a fine physi cal condition that It has become the envy of some of the professional transcontinental roads, and they are preparing to borrow sections of It. As was told last week the Southern Na tional nighway Association has ap plied for the section between Lords burg and the Rio Grande, and were given a lease ou It. Now comes the "National Old Trails Road Ocean to Ocean Highway Association, Incor porated, " with a map of its road. As Implied by Its name it wants, with an appropriation, to build a road across the country, following the old trails marked out by the pioneers, It does not seem to appreciate that those pioneers did not know the country, and often traveled a hard road when, by taking advantage of the country a much easier route might t used. An example of which is the old Santa Fe trail, and the Santa Fe railroad. The Santa Fe trail crossed the mountains In places where the climbing was fierce, and the railroad followed the trail, but had to pierce the mountains; with a tunnel, and thirty years latei found a cutoff that saved muchcllmbt ing and many miles of travel. Howj ever the road, according to the map issued by the association, leaves Washington and runs to Cumberland; on the Braddock road, from Cumber land to St. Louis, Mo., on the Curof berland road, or National Pike, to Boonsville on the Boon Lick road, to Santa Fe, on the Santa Fe trail, where it strikes a road that Is really an old road, one that was being tra veled when the Pilgrims Tanded on Plymouth Rock, El Camino Real, the King's Highway, and follows this as far as It can, to Rincón, then to Saa Diego, Los Angeles, and Monterey over Kearney's road to California. It strikes the Borderland route at Petri ing, and follows It to Phoenix. When these two associations get to sending as many cars over their road asare now traveling the Borderland the road between here and Demlng will be so crowd ed that It will be necessary to double track that section.
