i CHILLY WHAT! I Kit. Fruit Damagad Considerably in Santa Fe County. Ni'UK muí iihhI) In muí About the Tcr rilnrial ('upHiil. Santa Fb, April 20. A cold wave struck Sania Ft' last Friday mid before night the thermometer liad fallen below the freezing point. lee formed during tho night of considerable thickness and much damage was done to the earlier varieties of Irnit in this section. It is not believed that there, ha been very gieut damage done lo apples anda (air crop in expeelMd if (he weather contin ues favoral)le from this time on. Governor Thornton has not jet aeted in the Cunningham matter and it is charged by some of the politicians here that he is afraid to remove the sheriff. On the other hand, the governor hays that he is looking into the matter very carefully and that he is not going to act until he is certain that he is right. Sheriff Cunningham maintains that tliere are no grounds for his removal mid in case the governor should attempt to remove him, he will light the matter in the courts. Nearly fill of the resi dents of this city have already taken sides, in the matter and developments are awaited with interest. Sheriff Cunningham points with pride to his record in bringing criminals to jus'ice and people here are very gener ally disposed to give him credit for what he has dune in this direction. It is said that none of the shortage with w hich lie is charged can be charged during his present term of otlicc, and for that rea son the governor hesitates to remove him from ollice. The mutter bus al ready caused considerable feeling among the democrats of Santa Fe, "oe tweeii whom none too cordial a feeling lias existed for many months. Several dark horses are going into training for the race for delegate to the democratic national convention at Chica go, and it is by no means improbable that the result of the factional light will be that Santa Fe county w ill be left out in the cold w hen it comes to the election oi delegates to the national convention nt Las Vegas in June. Some of the schemes which me being laid are well planned while others are entirely to i transparent to deceive even the uio-t unsophisiiealcd of politicians. There lire no less than live residents of Santa Fe who would go to the national con vention and it might be said that it would require very little urging on the part of theirjriendi to induce them tu J. It is becoming more and more appar ent that the 11d111i11i.il ral ion financial policy will have few champions in the Las Vegas c invention. From all parts of I he territory c.mm assurances that the delegates to the territorial conven tion will be silver men anil leading poli ticians here all admit that a solid silver delegation will besen! from New Mexi co to the Chicago convention. A new time table wiil go into effect on I the Santa Fe Mav :. After that dale the limited trains will run only once a week instead of daily. It is not ex pected that any change will he made in the running time of the other trains. W. II. .lack, of Silver City, member of the cattle sanitary board of the territory, was here last Saturday on his way to Las VegiH. Ma stated t bar the report that Israel King, who has been in jail at Juarez, was liberated last week was without foundation and that he was then still in jail although every effort was being made to get him out by lead ing citizens of (Irani county. A large number of cio-es were dis posed of in the district court here last week, night sessions being held nearly every night. A great many rases have accumulated on account of lack of funds with which to defray expanses and every effort is being made by Judge Laughlin to dispose of as much bttsi nessas possible dicing this special ci sión of court. Work might now be going on building the new capítol if funds were available for the purpose but the bill legalizing the bonds authorized by the last legisla ture still hangs lire and nothing is be ing done toward restoring the capítol building. A large number of prisoners now con lined in the territorial peniten tiary could be put to work, but of this there appears to be no immediate pros pect. Tho coils appear to be tightening around James Addison I'criJta-lleavis and his associates who attempted to ob tain title to the great Peralta grant in the hind court here. Ilea vis not only failed to establish his right to a title to the more than 12,000,000 acres of land claimed by him, but he will, in all prob ability, spend the remainder of Iih days in the penitentiary " i account of his fraudulent claim. United S aies AKor nev Hevnolds has been Ii-hv lor intuit I a getting the case in shape and is now be lieved that nothing can prevent a con viction in the cases of lleavia and his associates. A Piano For $401 I I Chicago's most prominent mus'ie house, Lyon & Hcaly, have a number of slightly used anil second-hand pianos, taken in trade, used in concerts, and in fact not brand new instruments, which they have determined to sacrifice rather than to try to make room for.

Nearly all originally sold for from two 10 four limes their present price. Al most ad prominent makes (in squares and uprights) are represented, including among numerous others Chickering, Knalie. Steinway, Weber, Decker, Steck, Fisher, etc. This is an opportunity that w ill not occur again, as Lyon & llraly never had so many pianos of this class 1 1 fore. Immediate attention ih neces eary.

Any piano not proving satisfactory may he returned at their expense. Address at. I heir new salesrooms, corner Wabash Avenue and Adams Street, Chicago. Distance is no obstacle in taking advan tage of this remarkable chance to obtain a piano, for in proportion to the saving to be made, the freight charges are in significant.
