WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 16. Tf'.R RITORI A I. Lt:tiISL.4Tl'RF.. Tim ttiunrmflous of Secretary Ritrli. SSAXTA Fk, Nov. 10, 1380. Silt: I have the honor to call your attention and through you the atten liiin of the President ami ot Congress lo the necessities of New Mexico with irnpoi t to the future meeting- of its Legislative assemblies and the appor tionment and flection of it member. The Act of Congress, approved June 17tl, 1878, making appropria tions foi legislative and other annual expendes of the Government, under the in aiiinu of "Government in the Territories" (Treasury Department pamphlet page 30.) rnuN "That iriJin and after the ndjouru ment ol the of the next session of the general Territorial Legislatures the Council oi each of the territories of the United States shall not exceed twelve members, and the House of Representatives of each shall not ex rmful tir nil I v IV 1 1 P 1 linn it iftrc O "And the several Legislatures at their next sessions arc directed to divide the respective Teiri lories into as many Council and Rep resentative districts as they de sire, provided the number ot Council and Representative districts respec tively sliull not exceed the number of members as above designated.'' The first Legislative Assembly lo assemble after the passage of the ubove act, convened iu January 1880, and failed to make an apportionment, ami notwithstanding the reduction of the members as above stated, and the failure to make the apportionment directed; at the election had in this Territory on the 2nd day of Novem ber, just past, the members of the Council and House were elected the same ii9 under the old law for the next session of the Legislature, being thus elected, and has been for the three sessions, fourteen months in ad vance of the assembling of the Legis lut ure to which they were chosen or have been elected to serve. The next Legislative Assembly of New Mexico under the law convenes on the 1st Monday in January 1882. Iu thus electing members as form erly authorized, the old number were elected, that is 13 members ot' the Couucil (fixed June 19, 78, at 12) and 26 members of the House (fixed Juu 19, 78, at 24) besides the old appor tionment often years ago wus me ap portionment under which they were eiected. Clearly the Legislature elected is not such a body as is now contemplated in the organic act, and as the matter now stands our Terri torial Legislature cannot be legally convened without Congressional authority. thus communicating the facts, I would request that stith action be held by Congress a will enable the Territory to maintain its Legislative department legally and in order. In this connection, 1 take the liber ty to suggest one of two things, either: First. To legalize the member ship of the Legislature as to members aud election as elected on 2nd instant, and authorize the meeting of the. Leg islative Assembly early in 1881, not later than the first Monday in M arch. In support of this 1 will add that be sides thus giving a Legislative body fresh from the people, now that im migration has been and is rapidly i-omiug and with it new and varied interest requiring legislative action, it will afford an opportunity for the Territory lo readily adopt iteeil to its changes aud necessities. Iu such an event ai appropriation of $20.00 or thereabouts would be necessary to meet the usual expenses, or Second. Should Congress not fav ir the above, Mien L suggest the ap pointing of it commission composed of two Territorial officers, appointees of the President, and one Territorial officer, au appointee of the Governor, with the authority to make the nec essary apportionment ol members by Council and Representative districts as directed in the act of June 1878, fixing the time for the meeting after the census returns of population shall have been made known. Also desig nate the time for holding an election of said members on Tuesday alter the llrst Monday in November 1881, accompanied with provisions for a registration of votes lor said election and the canvass aud return of the vote as now provided by law at the general elections. Permit me also tit suggest as perti nent that in order to permanently se cure a membership in future legisla tive assemblies? fresh from the people, Coiigress cuact s law making it im perative to elect members of the Leg islativo assembly within 90 days pre ceding the assembly thereof. Also to nmend the organic act sons to make the utimbet of members an odd uumbtr in the houtc, my 18 mam bers iu the Couucil and 26 members in the House. Tbis sugestión i bused ! upon experience which is liable to be repeated. In the last legislative a. .-iin1.li .M ill- íia íirrriiií 711 t inn it Gtiidd 13 to 13, and at a dead lock for t hne daye, blocking all business in both i house and losing valuable time iu a session limited by act of Congress to 40 davs. 1 In suggesting as first above a ses sion of the legislature to meet not lat er than March next, I would further advise the providing for biennial ses sions thereafter, dating from the fird Monday in January 1881, thereby continuing the elections biennially aud sccuriug a legislative body fresh from the people by electing them at the same election now provided by law for the election ot delegate to Congress and county officers, other wise annual elections would follow. The Territory being apparently without an attorney general, I have no doubt yon have beeu heretofore fully advised lrom this office. The auditor of the territory might be des ignated as a member of the commis sion before suggested to make the apportionment. Very Respectfully, V. G. Hitch, Acting Governor of New Mexico. To Hon. Carl Shurz, Secretary ot the Interior. The Epizootir. As was feared, the horse epizootic came in waves of the epidemic and has at last struck Vegas. The on ward march of the epidemic has beeu noted from New York westward, slowly but surely affecting the stock in all the principal cities, but in the majority of instances ouly afflicting the equine race. When it reached Denver, about ten days ago, it was thought that it would be less severe than the epidemic of 75, but from present indications it would appear as though it would result in serious inconveniences. Now that the first signs of the distemper have exhibited themselves in this place. W" should take every precaution to ward ell" the ravages of tho disease, learu'ng from the experience of those iu other cities that we cannot afford to neglect our faithful equine friends. The sproad of the distemper has not yet become geueral but several of the larger ta blee have a large number of their horses ailing and before long wo would not be surprised to sec incip ient cases exhibited in all the stables. There is one satisfaction in knowing that the epizootic now raging has not been of a malignant type and that beyond a little inconvenience no sen ous result have anywhere been feared. The distemper strikes us at a very awkward lime, whet! we are enuring some of the worst weather that will probably bo visited upon us this year. It will bo remembered that on the years when the horse disease has prev iously been attended by au epidemic of sore throats and this is what we must expect iu Venas. It will be no uncommon thing if church services and entertainments are interrupted by "barkings" and coughing, ami none should be alarmed at it, for like an eclipse it comes about so often. --- Cnpitnl Cliroiiiclcfi. Santa Fe has been enduring a feed famine. There was a scarcity of hay on accouunt of the farmers bringing none into the city, and the supply lrom the east was almost entirely cut ff. About a month ago Jumes Willard, a well kuowu mining operator lrom Leadville, took up his residí nee in Santa Fe. With a party of fnemUMie went to the New Placers to look aficr some mining properly. Overtaken by night the party halted and made a camp and while discussing the merits ol different pistols, one of the party care essly handed a weapon that was prematurely discharged the shot tak ing effect in the abdomen of Mr. Willard. lie was removed lo Carbon ateville where he died Sunday morn ing. General Pope has been in Santa Fe for a few days past, lie is accompa nied by General Bingham, Chief Quartermaser of the Department of the Missouri; Dr. Magrmier, Medical Director of the same department; Major Dunn, Judge Advocate of the department, Rud Captain Volkmar, of the 5th Cavalry, aide de camp ol Gen eral Pope. The New Mexican says the visit was made lor the purpose of consulting with General Hatch upon the advisability of removing the head quarters of the department from Leavenworth lo this city.

The snow storm that began early Tuesday morning continued all day, and towards evenirg the thermome ter sensibly declined and the night was very disagreeable, t'ic wind whisking about the snow aud causing all who found it accessary to go out, to put on their heaviest wraps. The difficulty existing between the San Pedro nud Cañón del Agua Company and the agent for Mrs. Ca zin nee Ennigerloh's interest in the land of Bernalillo of said company has been amicably settled by the pur chase of such interest by the company.
