THE EAGLE: WEDNESDAY, JANRUARY 6. lvo.
The Prize Fight.
There is every indication Mist tlie
ti;hl between Mahcr and Fitzsiuimons
will occur within the boundsof ihe
leirrtory of New Mexico. The piv.-i-dent
of the Republic of Mexico has in
dieated his intention to us the military
in preventing the fight upon the soil of
thuHtateof Chihuahua, and the legis
lature of Texan promptly responded to
i lie recommendation of the governor and
made that "sport" a felony in the lone
. A bill, in; oduced by the representa
live of (iran. county, at the last (session
of the New Mexico legislature making
prize fighting a felony, and killing a man
in such light murder in the first degree
failed to paw the house by a vote of 10
to 14, ami there is no law against pi izo
fighting in New Mexico, except the com
mon law, under which it isa disturbance
of the peace and not a felony.
Had public sentiment been aroused
last winter as it has lieen since the fate
of the bill in the legislature of this terri
tory would have been a different one.
At the next session adequate punish
ment for the human brutes, who make
public exhibition of their brutality for
rain will be provided by statute and
New Mexico will not, thereafter be dis
graced by alleged sport, which even in
Texas is a felony.

One feature of the concerts is deserv

evening being better than the first two
or three extra numbers were rendered
and every effort made to please the au
dience, notwithstanding the attendance
was not as good as on the first night,
because of the inclemency of the weath

And the bread was baked too brown.
The pie too sour, the pudding too sweet,
And the roast was much too fat ;
The soup so greasy, too, and salt,

They are something like, and 'twould
