THE EAGLE: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 18!H.
5 MIMBRES RIVER NOTES. Our Corrt'Kpoiil.nt Says Somo Spicy TIiIhrh About the politician. Lowuu Mimhrbs, Oct. 6. Have' 'not communicated with you for several weeks, lmt everything of a political na ture has been so quiet since the recent conventions that nothing hag happened worthy of note. Doth the old parties' candidates have hcen upon the river canvassing but as they only used sweet words, poor cigars and chewing gum their advent and de parture were alike unnoticed. As the river furnished her quota of patriots for political preferment in the late republican convention held in Sil ver City, and as "a great many were called but few were chosen" there is con sequently a little soreness, some kick ing and a great deal of talk of leaving the country but not the party, however. It seems that once a republican always a republi can, while others take a more philo sophical view of the situation and say that a man of experience, at least of political experience, should know better than to monkey with the muzzle of a loaded convention. We met a friend of ours the other day who said he never knew until recently that the officers of Grant county were responsible for the attempt to restore the lovely Lily to her Hawaiian throne, or was directly or indirectly connected with the removal of custom duties on wool. This matter should be investi gated by the taxpayers, and if any offi cials are culpable they should be sum marily shelved. He had long had the wool pulled over his eyes with the lielief that the care and supervision of the county's affairs was the duty of its offi cials. A great many of the voters of this sec tion have come to the conclusion that for all practical purposes Fleming is the democratic party, Laird the republican and Lindauer the populist party, and as we are told that "the first shall be last, and the last shall be first" tbev have decided to fall into line with and march under the banner of the Great Hebrew Humanist. By the report of the last meeting of the board of county supervisors, we see light breaking through the rift in the clouds of adversity and financial depression with which the taxpayers of Grant conn ty have so long been afflicted. Tf they can only secure aloard of commissioners who are true to their interests, men who will proclaim their plans, purposes and policy if elected and whose practice cor responds with their professions, all will yet be well. We are glad to know that the members of the present "board have bad the "courage of their convictions" and taken a lone step in the ritrlit. direc tion. Let those who aspire to fill their places declare their intentions, for those ho are not for us are against ns. Tub Same Fkm.ow. TlmnkH "Democrat." EniToit Eaoi.k: Permit me to thank "Democrat" for his article in Tub Eagle of this inst., entitled "Registration Boards." I will place it in my scrap book, and if I have the honor tobe repre sentative from Grant county in next session of the territorial legislature, the matter shall have careful attention. Reformation is needed along many lines. Very truly, Jos. Doonk. Deming, X. 51., Oct. 3, 1894. Aaron Schutz, who is one of the best known merchants in Grant county, decid ed recently to add a stock of groceries to his line of clothing, furnishing goods, lioots and shoes and immediately ordered a complete stock of groceries. lie pro poses to sell for cash only as wiil be seen by a glance at his advertisement in this issue. About two years ago R. II. Speed spayed alout "0 heifers and he is now killing them. They are in much better condition than heifers in the same herd which were not spayed and he says that there is no question about the advantage ot spaying. There is a scarcity of water in the Mogollona and some of the mills there are seriously hampered for the want of water. But for this the mills would all be running and the output of the camp would he considerably larger than it is. Thomas Phillips has taken a lease on the tailings at the Mammoth mill at Pinos Altos and is treating them on the Cornish huddle system. He is working several men and is making it pay well. Smelter In Prospect. The Liberal readers will remember that last June A. D. Freeman shipped a carload of ore samples to the American Zinc and Lead Co. at Canyon City, with the idea of getting the company to build a smelter here. Mr. Freeman followed the ore in June and got back home Sun day night. The ore got tied up in the strike and did not reach the smelter for two months after it left here. The ore satisfied the company and Manager F. L. Bartlctt is exacted here next week with the intention of looking the ground over. If he finds things to suit him he will build a concentrating plant. The Amer ican Zinc and Lead Company is making arrangements to build a hundred ton copper smelter at Deming, which is something the citizens of that lively town have not discovered yet. The smelter would be built at Lordsburg if the company could have secured any concessions from the Southern Pacific company, but none could lie obtained. Western Liberal. HcatM Oiilnlnc. How does Don : II. Kedzie of the Lordi-burg Liberal relish the nomination of R. H. Theilmann? Deming Head light. Don: swallowed his dose of crow like a man, but that does not alter the fact that it was a villainous dose. He is not alone, either. Silver City Eaoi.b. Bitter medicine will cure an ague and Don: says he has not bad a touch of malaria since the county convention ad journed. Western Liberal. Max Sehutz has moved into his new store at Mogollón and is the first of the business men there to get into new quar ters since the big lire which destroyed the greater part of the town. AV. L. Jackson went out on the upper Gila. last week on a Lear hunt. Like many of the republicans he has taken to the woods. A.?N SCHUTZ, (e?W('e?VcSi Cash Grocery Store.
