Up to and Including January 31st
the state bad Issued 1514 automobile
licenses, and had collected tll,2l on
them. Purlng the previous years
there were Issued 1897 licenses. Ills
probable that a (treat many motor
drivers saw how their friends could
Kt along without a number on the
car, and so concluded to save the
price this year. It Is reported that a
rnan up In Socorro county tried It and
drew a twenty dollar fine, enough to
have paid for two licenses.
Tbeks was war at Indianapolis In
labor circles last week. There was a
general meeting, and the miners were
sore because an assessment had been
refused to help the miners In north
ern Michigan. It was said that Sam
Gompers, the head of the federation
of labor was' responsible for the re
fusal, and some of the miners went
after Sam. Duncan McDonald told of
attending a labor meeting, and there
was such a noise In the room adjoin
ing the one he occupied that he could
not sleep, and so went In to Investig
ate, and found a gang there drinking,
and at the head of the table sat Sam
with a bottle In his hands and thor
oughly stewed. In answer Sam said
McDonald was a liar, a slanderer and
various other kinds of people not nice
to associate with.
Tdb president has concluded to re
scind the order prohibiting the trans
portation of arms and ammunition
Into Mexico, as it was giving the
Constitutionalist the worst of the
deal, as the Huerta people could Im
port arms and ammunition from other
countries, by vessels, while the only
way the constitutionalists could get
them was from the United States.
General Villa was greatly pleased
when he heard of the order, and save
that the Federalists wilt be conquered
In less than ninety days. Ills greatest
bivuufa Ijaa bceu ilia Jock Of am
munition, all he had was smuggled
across, and that was slow work. The
original order should never have been
Issued, and as It was Issued it should
, long since have been rescinded.
Things will happen In Meilco now.
Fuom the stories that are drifting
about It looks as though a little In
vestigation should be made at the
Agricultural College, as to the kind
of people that are employed there.
At a recent murder trial the Import
ant thing was. determining whether a
person had been poisoned by arsenic.
A portion of the Intestines were sent
to Professor Hare, the professor of
chemistry, to make the determina
tion as to the presence of arsenic. He
made numerous examinations, and
could find no trace of arsenic He has
an assistant named Mitchell, who
from his appearance Is better known
as Happy Hooligan, who testified that
he analyzed the material and found
arsenic In it. Professor Hare has
been professor of chemistry at the
college for many years, he Is a scien
tist of reputation, and his word on
such a matter Is not to be questioned,
while Mitchell Is a young man with a
reputation yet to make. If the col
lege has got assistants who take an
occasion to jump In and declare the
chief Is mistaken It Is about time
that an Investigation was made to see
which was right, and the College
might well dispense with the other.
The jury believed Professor Hare.
Or all the mean, disagreeable and
disgusting exhibitions that human
beings will on occasion make the row
that sometimes arises In small villages
Is the worst. There Is scandal, back
biting, lying, and everything menean
do, except using his fists. The peo
ple that engage in these rows never
have the courage to fight It out. They
would like to put the man out of the
way, without any danger of getting
hurt. There was a sad example of
this kind of a row over In Alamo
gordo, which ended last week In the
acquittal of a man on the charge of
murder. In some way II. II. Major
had Incured the enmity of some of the
good people of Alamogordo, and there
was nothing they could not do to hurt
Mafor. It was In politics, and Major
won out. It extended Into lodge
circles, and there he won out. After
three years sickness his wife died.
Later his daughter took tick and
died. During her sickness she was
nursed by her father. Some of the
men who had been fighting Major
here saw the chance for getting In a
telling blow, and started the story
that the girl had died of poison, ad
ministered by her father., The story
spread and Increased as It spread un
til some one worked In his dead wife
as being also poisoned by Major. The
story was so public and so full of de
tails that Major went to Judge Med
ie r and asked to have the grand Jury
Investigate It. A day or so before
court met Fred Fornhoff, captain of
the mounted police went to Alamo
gordo, talked with some people, went
before the Judge, swore to a com
plaint, the judge Issued a warrant,
and FornhorT went to Major's house
at midnight, woke him up, arrested
htm and took him to jail, where he
was held without ball. This night
display was too mu,h for many peo
ple who had taken no .Interest In the
affair, and they commenced lending
aid to Major. The trial came on and
lasted for several days, there being
numerous witnesses against htm,
many of whom contradicted them
selves. A lawyer was brought from
Roswell to help out the prosecution,
but tu spite of all his enemies could
do he was acquitted. In the mean
time he had been Indicted for poison
ing his wife, but In this trial It was
proved she died a natural death.
What his enemls will now do to pro
secute him Is the question that Is
L. F. Vaughn, a Phoenix lawyer,
formerly a Duncan editor, and owner
of the plant on which the Arlzonlan
was formerly published, was In the
city the first of the week, en route to
Duncan to again start up the Arlzo
nlan. The paper has not been pub
lished for several months, but when
It came time to bid on the county
printing the Arlzonlan put In a bid
for the work, which proved to be the
lowest bid, and It was awarded to It.
The Era asked the court for an In
junction prohibiting the supervisors
giving the printing toa defunct paper,
but there was something irregular
about the paper, and before It was
fixed up the copy was sent to the Ar
Izonlan at Duncan. There was no
printer to print the Arlzonlan, and
arrangements were made to have It
printed at Safford. The paper came
out dated Duncan, contained the pro
ceedings of the Supervisors and a lot
of boiler plate matter. Mr. Vaughn
expects to get it started up and golog
again. He thinks he bas a man who
can be depended on. A man must
have a pull with a board of super
visors If they will let him print and
pay for the publishing the proceed
ings of the board In a paper that bas
not been Issued In several months,
and Is printed In an adjoining county.
The land department Is getting
after the people who have been cut
ting wood off the public land, and
when they are satisfied that a man
has been doing it they estimate the
amount he has cut, and then give
him a chance to pay for It, before re
porting the case to the grand Jury.
Even if innocent it is cheaper to pay
what the department exacta than
to run the chance of being indicted,
for even if acquitted the cost answer
ing the indictment la more than the
price of the wood. In the southern
part of the county a man was holding
down a squatter's claim, waiting for
the land to be surveyed. In clearing
the land he cut considerable wood,
more than he had use for, and bo be
took It to town and turned it over to
the merchant with whom he was
trading, and whom he owed, and got
credit on his grocery bill. There was
more than the merchant could use,
and he shipped it away. The depart
ment seemed to think it could get
money easier from the merchant than
from the squatter, and so gave him a
chance to settle. This is worse than
paying for a dead horse.
The parcel post was thought to
have accomplished a great feat when
It put the freight teams out of bus
iness between Sliver City and Mogo
llón, but that Is not the limit. It has
been discovered that it can beat
freight charges on the Arizona East
ern, Southern. Paclflo and Arizona &
New Mexico roads, on occasions, and
make these roads haul the goods.
Over at Tempe j,helr Is a condensed
milk factory that sells Its canned
product where ever It can find a cus
tomer. It is seldom It can sell a ear
load In any one community, and get
the advantage of carload rates. How
ever it has been discovered that Clif
ton Is in the second parcel post tone
from Tempe, and a fifty pound pack
age can be sent from Tempe to Clif
ton for 54 cents, or 11.08 per hundred
pounds. The rate on milk from
Tempe to Clifton is 11.37 per hundred
pounds in less than car load lots. The
milk man can send his milk to Clifton
by parcel post for 2 cents less than
Itcan be sent by freight, and it will
travel over the same road in a first
class passenger train Instead of a
freight train. The business men of
this western country arestudylng the
