JUST Above Cimarron in the high mountains, are the Cimarroncito, Urraca, Bonito, Ute Creek and HHzabethtown mining dis
tricts. In these districts untold wealth has tantalized the prospector from the time the Spanish government tied it up in he shape of an enormous land grant until March 15th, 1908, when mineral scrip covering the entire district was issued and placed on sale at Cimarron and elsewhere. Prospectors can now purchase scrip, locate claims, and exchange the scrip for patented title involving no obligation for development or assessment work on the property. This arrangement which is better for the miner and prospector than the terms offered by the United States Government on the Public Domain, is without parallel in the history of mining and is copyrighted. By reason of this specially advantageous arrangement, which cannot be duplicated elsewhere, the mineral resources ol Colfax county will experience a more rapid development than any other mining district known. Cimarr on lies between this district and the gf cat Colfax cognty coal fields. The ore and the coke feoth come down bilí to Cimarron and the had is short, neither can go arotmd and neither can fee haaíed by Cimarron without going up hill. At Cimarrón tíen' Wfg tg smelters ruction worksassay offices and the headquarters of the mining companies. There is gold enough to make itanother Cripple Creek kd iron enough to make it a Pueblo. No where nearer than the Lake Superior region is there so much iron, and no where else is so much iron adjacent to so much coke. i HJEB STATEHOOD. At the National Republican conven tion in Chicago, a plank was insert ed in the platform advocating the admission of New Mexico as a state This is good news to every onr, and the Citizen is as enthusiastically cheerful over the prospect as is any one. The Santa Fe New Mexican also is cheerful, and in its usual over done boasting for Delegate Andrews, it would have us all believe that An drews, and Andrews alone, was re sponsible for this plank, and to him only belongs the credit. It is true that the New Mexican has not came right tout with this claim, but the whole tone of its comments is to that effect. The Citizen is willing to give Mr. Andrews credit for all he has done along this line, but it has been under the impression that other influential men are also entitled to some credit for the good work they have done. The Citizen also recog nizes the fact that without being ful ly entitled to be admitted to the Un ion as a state, the chances for New Mexico would indeed be very slight, with or without the endeavors of Delegate Andrews or any other man or men. But the New Mexican gives to Andrews, "The Man who Does Things,"' exclusive credit for the statehood plank, and makes great capital out of the affair. No one other than Andrews, seemingly, has enough influence with the powers that be to have their names mention ed in the same breath. The Citizen is willing to take Mr. Andrew's word in behalf of statehood at an extreme ly high valuation, and give him all due credit, but it is only willing to take the praise the New Mexican gives this work at what it is worth. Judging from the usual amount of sickening praise the great man gets from the New Mexican every time he blows his nose, the New Mexi can's statements should , be taken with a little grain. But now we are informed of a strange happening, the credit of which, no doubt, also belongs to the "Man who does Things." The Dem ouatic National Convention has al so adopted a plank which favors the admission of New Mexico and Ari zona into the Union as separate states. Did the Man who does Things" and other things, do this also? HINKY DINK VERY SORE Chicago, July "A mutton headed Denver policeman, riding a mountain goat, say3 he caught one of my constituents prying open a win dow with a 'jimmy,' does he? I had constituents who went with me to Denver provided with 'jimmies.' The Denver 'cop' was dreaming when he handed out that story." The foregoing is the official state ment issued by Alderman Michael Kenna in refutation of a story which was given out by the police of Den ver Saturday that a mounted police man had captured one of the alder man's First ward supporters doing a little burglar work while at the con vention. As a result of the story the First ward is breathing vengeance against the Denver police. If one of the guardians of Denver law and order ever comes inside the boundaries of Chicago's First ward, what he will have done to him will be a-plenty. "I have been in Denver and I want to say right now that a Denver 'cop' would be made to look like a toy policeman by one of Chicago's burg lars," said Wabash Avenue Red. "They ain't nothin' in Denver to steal cept the climate, and they ain't a whole lot o' that," remarked Slim Picrp in an excited tone. "The only thing that I ever heard about Denver in the criminal line is that they have a juvenile court out there, and that most of the police are busy chasing school children in order to iill up the docket," said Sar castic Charlie, who says he is edu cated. of Pike Lake while riding with her Saturday evening. He was seen tak ing to the woods and yesterday the bloodhounds were put on the scent, revealing the suicide. It is supposed that a refusal of his attentions prompted the murder and suicide. SHOOTS HIS BROTHER TO PROTECT MOTHER SUICIDE'S BODY FOUND Superior, Wis., July n. Police bloodhounds yesterday afternoon found the body of Max Hockworth, a gambler, in the woodsj the top of his head blown off by a shotgun. Hockworth had shot Mrs. Ada Loos Denver, July 13. To protect his widowed mother and sister from tbuse, James Fisher, a clerk in the baggage room of the Union depot, shot and probably fatally wounded his brother, Albert Fisher, as the lat ter attempted to force his way into the family residence at 1735 Ogden street for the avowed purpose of beating the defenseless women yes terday afternoon. Investigation by the police showed that James Fisher was justified in shooting down his brother, the hit ter's assault upon his mother and sis ter yesterday being the culmination of years of abuse and brutality. James Fisher has the sympathy of the police and all others familiar with the details of the Fisher family troubles. The trouble which led to the shooting originated early last week. Angered by their refusal to give him money which would have enabled him to live a life of idleness, Albert Fisher had cursed and beaten his mother and his sister, Mabel, aged i", and threatened that he would re turn on Saturday. Knowing his brother's disposition, James Fisher.J determined no longer to allow his brother to abuse the women, even though he would have to use a gun. and armed himself with an old re volver, once the property of his dead father.
