THE EAGLE: WEDNESDAY. Atlil'ST 28, 1895.
7 REAMS STILL IN JAIL. Delegate Catron and Hit Partner Are in Trouble. The .Supreme Court of the Territory Ap points u Committee to Investigate t'lmrgei Agnlimt Catron, Sa.vta Fe, N. M., Aug. 26. The Rea vi liHbeas corpus ease, which was brought before the supreme court of the territory during the first week of tlie present term, has been finally dis posed of. The case was argued the first week of the term before four of the just ices, Mr. Justice Bantz not being pre sent, and the bench was equally divided, ho that it was impossible to render a de cision without a rehearing of the case. Although the case had been previously set, it was not reached until this week and the decision was rendered on Sat urday afternoon, Mr. Justice Bañtz, who had the casting vote, deciding that Rea vis should remain in jail. Although Reavis attempted to get the the biggest land claim cvre presented Ihroi.gh the land court on forged papers and perjured testimony, there is a kind ly ieeiing fur him among manv of the people here. Some appear to admire hi- b, liluess in presuming lo come before such a tribunal as the land conn, claim-ing-such an immense tract of laud with nothing but forgery ami perjury to buck up his claim. Quite a sensation was caused by the tiling of grave charges in the supreme couri of the territory last week against Delégale Thomas D. Catron and his law part i. er, Mr. Charles A. Spicss, by At torney Crist, No such commotion has been caused in the territorial capital since the opening of the present term of court as was canned by this proceeding. Politicians gathered in groups on the corners and in the plaza and talked the matter over. The temporary excitement had hardly subsided when the supreme court, last Saturday morning, made the following order; "In theniatter of informat'onco icern ing Thomas B. Catron and Charles A. Spicss: And now at this day, the court having considered the matter of the in formation presented by Jacob II, Crist, esq., as district attorney, concerning Thomas R, Catron and Charles A. Spless, esq., memliers of the bar of this court, it is ordered by the court that the same he referred to John I'. Victory, esq., as solicitor general of this territory, W, l, Childers, K, A. Fiske, A. A. Jones and Simon U. Newcotnb, esqs,, members of the bar of this court,' with directions t them to prepare and present to this court Mich written charges and speelllca lions in relation to the matters contained in the said information, it they or a major ity of them may deem proper in the premises, and file the same in the clerk's office of this court within ten days from this date, and that they serve or cause to lie served upon the said Catron and Spiess a copy of the same within ten days from this day. "And it is further ordered that the said Catron and Spiess file their written an swer jointly or severally, to such charges within ten days thereafter. "And it is furthur ordered that the is sues raised by the said charges and an swer be called for trial and heard by this court on the first Monday of October, in the year 1895, at 10 o'clock in the fore noon at which time the said Victory, Childers, Fiske, Jones, and Newcomb present such witnesses or other testi mony as they may deem proper and ex pedient, whose testimony may be mater ial and competent in relation to the is sues arising upon such charges and an swer, and that the said Catron and Spicss present such witnesses or other testi mony as they may deem proper and ex pedient whose testimony may be com petent and material in relation to such issues, and thereupon abide the judge ment of this court in the premises, "And It is further ordered that the clerk of this court issue subpienas for such witnesses on the application of either party, and that a copy of this order lie served forthwith upon the said Catron and Spicss," It is thought by all prominent men here that the committee which has been appointed is a very fair one and the out come is awaited with a great deal of in terest as i he charges are of a very s"i-ons nature and are of the greatest concer lo our delegate elect to congress, Last Thursday ivas the -Kith ii'iniver sai y ol the raising of the I'nited Sta.es ling by lien, Kearney u the plaa here, but I he filet seems to have escaped the notice ol the residents of the city. At'-. ter Gen. Kearney had captured Las Vegas he started for this place. He movements were reported and a force was sent out to meet him but he suc ceeded in keeping out of the way of the reception committee and suddenly ap peared on a hill to the northeast of the plaza where earthworks were thrown up which remained to this day. The city was surrender.id without a drop of blood having been shed and the United States (lag was raised in the plaza on the 22nd of August, 18411, when Gen. Kearney took possession of the territory in the name of the United States. He immediately appointed territorial officers since which time the territory has been under the control of the United States. His appoint ees were: Charles Rent, governor; Donaciano Vigil, secretary; Richard Dollain, marshal; Francis 1'. Blair, U.f District attorney; Charles Bliinimér ; treasurer ; Eugene Leitendorfer, auditor ; Joab Hougbton, Antonio J. (Itero and Charles lieaubien, judge of the supreme court. The palace, which had long been used as the residence of the governor, was oc cupied by the governors oi New Mexico until after the edifice was destroyed by lire the governors have occupied the same building which served as the gov ernor's palace two hundred years ago. j The supreme ciuit el the Icirilory will adjo in) this week, and Judge Bantz will be here about the lust of the week. Thts iireme court reversed the de cision of the district conn of tbi-district in the Dak Grove and Sierra Venia case iast week and the cast was remanded fur a new trial.
