HARRIS &. SMITH, Socorro, N, M. Depredations by Sheep Herds. Editor Chieftain: We wish to call the attention of the cattlemen of Socorro coun ty and the territory in general to the danger that is fast approach ing us from the depredations of sheep herds from all over the ter ritory. They have been con stantly closing in on the ranges of the cattlemen for the last ten years. They have been gradual ly getting the best of us in the laws of the territory until they have got the law on their side. It seems that by law they have a riirht to come right up to a man's patented claims and if anything is done to them the offender, " as he is called, is tried by a Mex "in jury and sent to the penitentiary for a term of from live to fifteen years. Can't something he done before it is too late? Can t the law pro tect the cattleman as well as any one else" lias not me cattleman any rights whatever? Does the sheepman own this territory? If so, since v.hcn? There must be a stop put to this some way. If it can't be done one way let us try another. We stay at home and attend to our business. Sheep herders come from all over the country and graze on our ranges. If we tell them they are crowding us too close they are on the war path at once and ask us how many acres we nave. Ana may we ask? how many acres of land have they? Haven't we a a better right to four or five miles around our patented ranches than sheep men from other counties or even frem the same county? Isn't that fair? We ask no more. Let us unite and see what we can do, but let us make violence our last resort. Any fair minded man will agree with us. Never theless, we must make a trial. No effort, no prosperity. very Respectfully, L. V. Medley. In Chambers. Hon. Dan'l II. McMillan, associate justice for the fifth iudicial district, visited Socorro Thursday. While in the city Judge McMillan passed upon cases in chambers as follows, viz: Fit min James vs. William M. Hurst ct al, foreclosure of mort ffawe. Sale made by W. II. Winter, special master, confirmed, deed ordered, and deficiency judg ment rendered for $3,670.95. Meddie Gray vs. William H. Gray, divorce. Special examiner appointed to take testimony. Ludie É. George vs. Walter George, divorce. Decree granted. Territory of New Mexico vs. delinquent tax payers of Socorro county. This case involved two important questions, viz: first, whether an tlCcer is entitled to more than one mileage fee for serving more than one process at the same time and in the same locality, and, second, whether an officer is entitled to mileage fees for serving process by mail. Judge McMillan gave an negative ruling on the first question and an affirmative ruling on the second. LA GRIPPE QUICKLY CURED. "In the winter of 1898 and 1899 I was taken down with a severe attack of what is called La Grippe" says F. L. Hewett, a prominent druggist of Winfield, 111. "The only medicine I used was two bottles of Chamberlain's Cougn Remedy. It broke up the cold and stopped the coughing like magic, and l have not since been troubled with Grippe." Cham berlain's Cough Kemcdy can al ways be depended upon to break up a severe cold and ward on any threatened attack of pneumonia. It is pleasant to take, too, which makes it the most desirable and one of the most popular prepara tions in use for these ailments. For sale by A. E. Howell, Socor ro; Y. VY. Uorrowuaie, lena. J OP HOMC INTEREST. 4 year still in assaying began "work year is now the school School of Mines Notes. The enrollment for the has now reached b .m l is growing.

HOW TO CURE THE GRIP. Remain Quietly at home and take Chamberlain's Cough Reme dy as directed anca quick recovery is sure to follow. 1 hat remedy counteracts any tendency of the grip to result in pneumonia, which is really the only serious danirer. Amonir the tens of thousands who have used U lor the grip not one case has ever been reported that did not recover. For sale by A. E. Howell, socor- m tr tif V . 1 1 f , A ro; vy. vy. uorrowuaie, lugua- lena. Magda A broad laugh has spread all over the territory caused by a bill hastily passed yesterday by the legislature empowering the gover nor to nil vacancies in county offices. The cause of the hasty action of the legislature was the report in Santa 1' e that Shcrill Blackington was lying at the point of death, and that in case of vacancy the democratic loard of commissioners in Socorro coun ty would appoint a democrat to fill the vacancy. A lew minutes after the bill was passed, a dispatch was received from Socor ro stating that Sheriff Blacking- ton was rapidly recovering, and was making arrangement to run for the same office two years hence.

This disease always results from a cold or an attack of the grip and may be prevented by the timely use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. That remedy was exensively used during the epidemics of La Grippe of the past few years, and not a single case has ever been reported that did not recover or that resulted in pneumonia, which shows it tobe a certain preventive of that dangerous disease. Chamberlain's Couiih Remedy has gained a world wide reputation for its cures of colds and crip. For sale by A E. Howell. Socorro: W. W. Borrowdale, Magdalena. Honor Roll.

A certain well known druggist not a hundred miles from So corro has demonstrated the fact that the Rio Grande is not a navigable stream in this part of its course.

The en tertainment was given under the auspices of the Episcopal ladies guild, and the profits were enough, to paint the church and make other much needed improvements. The lecture itself was a real treat. The lime light views of old-world scenes famous in song and story were excellent, and an air of reality was imparted to them by Mr. McConnell's ani mated accounts of his own ex periences in the localities repre sented.

J. McConnell would preach Masonic sermon at Epiphany church Sunday evening p.roused considerable interest as was evi denced by the fact that the church was crowded with hearers. The speaker dwelt upon the history and the principles of the Masonic organization in an entertaining manner. On Thursday the Laguna Valley company paid to District Clerk John E. Griffith the sum of $9,197.17 back taxes. On the same day $250 back taxes was paid to Mr. Griffith by Mrs. J Si. Wood and Mrs. E. F. Cook A question has arisen as to the proper distribution of this money into the various county funds. One contention is that the money should be assigned to the fund for the years in which the taxe fell due and thus be devoted to the discharge of the county: Indebtedness for those years, NOTICE.
