THE CHIEFTAIN. PEM0GRAT1C COHVEHTIOH. Oathering of the Unterri- fled. A County Ticket Nominated. Hlo-' quence Galore. The democratic county con vention for tbe nomination of a legislative and county ticket was called to order Saturday after noon by J. J. Lecson, chairman f the county central committee. Mr. Leeson made a brief address which possessed the merit of di rectness, clearness, ' and force without any pretentions to formal oratory. . The convention was organized by the election of LucianoChavez as president, Benj. Sanchez and JJoctor Ncsbitt as secretaries, and A. D. Torres and J. M. Tor res as interpreters. The report of the committee on credentials showed a fair repre sentation of the various precincts present. The resolutions adopt cd endorsed the national and ter ritorial candidates of the party, but were chiefly occupied with a denunciation of alleged abuses in the management of the county's finances. The nomination of a county ticket developed some misunder standings. Ramon M on toy a, one of the strongest democrats of the county, was nominated with out opposition and with uproa rious enthusiasm lor tne po sition oí treasurer and collector, To the surprise of everybody, However, wr. Montoya im mediately arose and declined the honor. At this point the conven Hon went into secret session and its first difficulty was overcome by the nomination of Don. L,uti mjo Montoya for the first plice n the county ticket. Ihenomin atiou of J. M. Miller of Koscdalc for probate clerk presented anoth er difficulty, but that gentleman finally consented to withdraw from the ticket in favor of a man who was considered stronger. i he democratic ticket now ütand's as' follows: Councilman, C. G. Cruickshank of San Mar cial: assemblymen, Clemente Cas tillo of Lcmitar and E. II. Jobson of Lako. Valley; collector and treasurer, Eutimio Montoya "of San Antonio; sheriff, Leandro Haca of La Joya; commissioner 1st district, John Grecnwald of Socorro; commissioner 2nd dist rict, Matias Contreras of Los Ranchos de la Joya; commissioner 3rd district, A. K. Rouillcr of Paraje; probate clerk, Macedonio Amnio of Sabinal; assessor,Benj. Sanchez of Polvadera; probate judge, Nepomuccno Castillo of Socorro; surveyor, W. W. Jones Of ban Marcial. i In the evening the court room was well filled by citizens of bo corro and vicinity who assembled to listen to addresses by Ilonora bles E. V. Chavez, Neill B. Field, and O. A. Larrazolo. The ad dresses aroused much enthusiasm among democrats. Republicans, however, would feel warranted in taking exception to some state ments made and methods of rea soning employed. The Weather in South Africa. Julian Ralph, the famous war correspondent, advises the trav eler in South Africa to take along a fig leaf for a daytime costume and a Laplander's suit of furs at night. All kinds of weather, he says, are served out during the 24 houta. As for hcalthfulness not even Colorado can compare with it. "To go to Colorado you must be a millionaire with only one lung, and yoo must keep your lung and part with your million. But here the rule is to couie penniless with no lungs. Thus established, you develop the lungs and become a millionaire." No wonder the British thought South Africa vforth fighting for. Kittens ai Paper Weight. From a New Y-ik letter.

After the close of tbe regular proceedings of the convention, Captain C. II. Kirkpatrick, can didate for county commissioner for the third district, was called for and in a brief but happy ad dress made an excellent impres sion upon his auditors. The rest of the evening- was devoted to addresses by Honorable Nestor Montoya and T. A. I imcal. The large audience present prov ed to be attentive, sympathetic, and enthusiastic listeners. Mr. Montoya spoke in Spanish and handled national and territorial issues in a manner that 'roused the Spanish speaking part of his audience to a high pitch of en thusiasm. Mr. Finical sustain ed his reputation as an eloquent and forceful speaker. Thus clos ed one of the 'most successful republican conventions ever held in Socorro county. BIRTHDAY PARTY AT MAGDALENA.

As stated yesterday in a dispatch to the New Mexican, the charred bones of a man and boy, supposed tobe the mortal remains of Col. A. J. Fountain and son Henry, were found Sunday in the Sacramento mountains by AJonzo Greenwood and William Smith, who were on a hunting expedi tion. Descending the side on one of the mountains lining James cañón,' the hunters Bat down on a log to rest, and discovered, a part of a gun barrel protruding from the ground at tbeir feet. They dug beneath the surface and un earthed another gun barrel, a partially burned saddle, looking glass, pair of breeches buckles. the burned bones of two skeletons and several minor pocket articles, which latter did not aid in identifying the remains. The stocks of both guns had been burned, giving evidence that the murderer had attempted to destroy all trace of the crime by burning his own gun and saddle, as well as the bodies of his victims. UNDOUBTEDLY FOUNTAIN. V As Fountain and son are the only persons who have been missing from, that part of the Country, and as similar breeches buckles were worn by young Henry Fountain, there is no doubt but what the lást resting place of the murdered attorney and his son has been found and the veil of mystery surrrounding their disappearance has been par tially raised. Colonel Fountain and son left Lincoln for Las Cruces the letter part of January 18, in buckboard, and stopped the night of January 31 at the home of D, M. Sutherland, a prominent La Luz stockman. They intended going to Las Cruces by way of the White Sands desert, but after leaving La Luz they disappeared from the earth as completely as though swallowed by an earth quake; " About a week later their buckboard was found near the Chalk Bluffs, and near by was a pool of "dried blood and, a few blood-stained coins indicating the scene of a terrible tragedy. Fountain was a prominent attorney, and in the valise which he carried were indictments for the arrest of a number of persons charged with cattle stealing. "battlb with posse. O. M. Lee and James M Gilliland and William, "McNew were indicted for the murder of Colonel Fountain and son. After nearly two years of outlawry, during which time Lee and his friends successfully evaded Sheriff Pat F. Garrett and the forces sent out to capture them, a pitch ed battle was fought between Garrett's posse and the Lee peo pie, which resulted in the killing of Deputy Kearney and the defeat of the posse. Then at the in- tance of Governor Otero, Lee and the others surrendered. All the legal talent in the terri tory was employed in the case, and every effort was made to fasten the crime on Lee, Gilliland and McNew, but the jury rendered a verdict of not guilty. Although the finding of the bodies offers no clew to the perpetrators of the" crime, it brings to light the fact that Fountain and son were undoubt edly murdered, and that they did not go to some South American country, as was frequently reported. Detectives have repeat edly sought the bodies in every cave in the Sacramentos, ánd were invariably baffled. New Mexican. A snap.
