TUB EAGLE: WEDNESDAY, JUNK 5, 11ÜI5.
ft A GitKAT deal of business has been transacted in court since the opening of this term. Judge Bantz is giving gener al satisfaction on the bench and keeps the court moving in such a way that the docket is being rapidly cleared. ' Tim report comes from Arizona that Kid, the famous Apache, is dead. As his scalp has not been brought in and the big reward has not been claimed, the statement that he is dead may be taken with a large sized grain of salt. Hold Men. Senator Palmer, in a recent interview, makes some predictions which will hardly come true. He said : "You ask about the movement in Ill inois. The truth is that Governor Alt geld and Mr. Hinrichsen, secretary of state, and chairman of the democratic state committee respectively, are bold men, and are determined to commit the democratic party of the state to the unlim ited coinage of silver on the ratio of 16 to 1 of gold. The governor is a bold leader, and requires his appoiittees, who are numerous, to conform to his wishes. There is scarcely an important county in the state in whiih there is notan ap pointee of the governor's. He has rail road and warehouse commissioners, pen itentiary commissioners, trustees of in sane and other hospitals and benevolent institutions, and, by the way, the gov ernor is no amateur politician, while Mr. Hinrichsen is, and he really lielieves that liecause he is chairman of the Ill inois state committee and has a minor ity of the committee with him that he can dictate the opinions of the demo cratic party of Illinois. Mr. Hinrichsen is a politician by trade, and cannot real ize that the great body of the democratic party of the state are independent, self reliant men. It is said in some of the newspapers that John Hinrichsen threat ens to read all of the democrats who re fuse to indorse the free and unlimited coinage of sil ver at the ratio of 16 to 1 out of the party. " I predict that the members of the state committee who are loyal to the democratic party and the Chicago plat form will meet soon after the June con vention and depose Mr. Hinrichsen from the chairmanship, as they well may, he having abandoned the democratic party and attempted to deliver it to a new party. The reorganized state committee will invite Mr Hinrichsen and his or ganization tocóme hack into the party, hut whether they will is for them to de cide." Senator Palmer speaks enthusiasti cally of Secretary Carlisle's work in Ken tucky. He says: "Mr. Carlisle stands a better chance of being the democratic candidate for the presidency than any other man. His discussion of money questions is wonder ful in simplicity and' clearness, and he has made himself the great leader of this movement in favor of honest money." Kallroad Sold.

The United States court of private land claims convened at 10 o'clock this morning with a full bench, Chief Justice Reed and Justice Sluss having arrived from the east last night. United States Attorney Reynolds announced that the government was ready to proceed to the hearing. Judge McKinney, a lawyer, of Phoenix, appeared as the representative of the alleged Peralta heirs in Arizona, whose case was filed in Arizona and sub sequently consolidated with the Peralta Keavis claim in spite of the fact that it was adverse to the latter claim. In en tering his appearance this morning Judge McKinney expressly disclaimed any connection with the Peralta-Reavis claim, but explained that his clients had been relying on the Peralta-Reavis peo ple to show the existence of a grant as alleged. "If Reavis has failed to do this," he added, "our case fails also." He stated further that, as the hearing proceeded, he might ask the court to annul the order consolidating the two caes. Mr. Reynolds then suggested that, as it was reported that Reavis had recently been seen in Los Angeles and might ar rive with his attorneys on the next train from the south, the hearing be postponed until to-morrow morning. It was so or dered. New Mexican. The court fund is holding out ltter than was expected ami it is quite pro bable that court will continue in session a few days longer.
