The ( 'hama Tribune expects to move into its new building May 1. Success to brother Ilildrith is the wish of the Prospector. The late buow storm Jin the mountains has caused a great loss to sheep men. In this section they have lost from 20 to 50 per cent of their flocks. The Territorial Fair will again be held at Albuquerque this fall. Tho people of that growing city are already up and stirring and will make it the best fair ever held m the southwest. The United States has entered a protest against tho allied powers asking such a larue indemnity from China. They are asking a sum that they know China cannot meet, but it ia only an excuse to divide her between themselves. The President has appointed William M. Jenkins as Governor of Oklahoma. Governor Barns had the indorsement of Senator Mark Iluuna, but Delagate Flynu and Secretory Hitchcock of the Interior indorsed Jenkins and ho received the appointment. sir. Jenkins is now secretary of Oklahoma and is respected by all regardless of politics. The great question now among the politicians of the territory is who w iirucceed the late Hon. Geo. II. Wallace as(seoretaryiof the ter ritory of New Mexico. Later; President McKinlev, April 20th, appoined James W. Kaynalds, of Las Vegas, secretary of this ter ritory to succeed the late lion. Geo. H.
