THE EAGLE: WEDNESDAY, JULY 24., 1895.
THE BROKEN HANKS. Grant county iconic a in still wonder ing if the end of l lioso Peining and Sil ver City bank receiverships will ever come. Let'S see; about eight years, isn't it, that thin matter lias been drugged along? New .Mexican. Not finite so liad as that. The hanks failed February Ü, 1892, nearly three and a half years ago and up to the pres ent time the depositors have received just forty jier cent, uf their deposits at the time of the failure. The hist divi dend was paid considerably more then a year and a half ago and it is not be lieved that the prospects for further dividends are very brillrtint. The com p troler of the currency assessed the stock holders in the bank here fifty percent, of the amount of the stock, but it has turned out that an assessment of a hundred per cent, would not more than have paid the depositors in full bv this time. Quite a number of worthless judgments have been obtained hut it is questionable whether they could lie sold for enough to pay the court costs in obtaining them, to say nothing oí the attorney's fees. The murmurs of the depositors have reached Washington, but so far they have been productive of no good residís. The former president of the two banks is working for his board in the territorial hotel at Santa Fe and this fact is com forting to some of the losers in the banks, but they still have to mourn the lo.-s oí their nionev. ard country, but we do not hear of people down there voluntarily going into elaverv. Tiik fifth annual catalogue of the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Me chanic Arts has been published. Last year's attendance was 100, of which number 2!) were in the college classes, 99 in the preparatory department and the remainder in special departments. The college shows a healthy growth, but it is mainly in the preparatory department. In time these preparatory students will enter the college classes and then the four regular college classes will be lar ger and the usefulness of the college will be increased. Tiik silence of republican newspapers on the question of protection to the wool ' industry is extremely eloquent. Since Wool has been place on the free list, it has advanced in price more than thirty per cent, and the advance slillcontiniies. None of the predictions as to disaster to the sheep and wool interests which were made by the republican press and re publican orators have been brought ulmut by the removal of the tariff from wool. All of the eloquence of Morrison, the great protectionist of New .Mexico, who told the wool raisers of the territory that the democrats would ruin them, was worse than wasted. He was mistaken, but there is no record of his having ac knowledged the fact and he may be re lied upon to sing the same song over again during the next campaign. Sinck tlie fort Marey military reser vation has been turned over to the de partment of the interior and the citizens of Santa Fe see that there is no possibi lity that the post will be re-established, the people up there are making an effort to have the reservation turned over to the city. It, seems that the government simply used the hind and that it was a portion of it grant which belongs to the city of Santa Fe. The land is quite val uable and would be quite an addition to the assets of the ani'ierit citv. Do You Want a (iooil Kumli. A first class ranch in the vicinity of Aztec San Juan Co., N.

NO FUN ABOUT IT It is said by some of the leading re publican politicians that Renjaniin Har rison is not seeking the nomination for the presidency next year at the hands of the republicans of the country, but his actions would seem to indicate that he would not refuse to accept the nomina tion should it be tendered to him.
