Tracy, who ap peared in the place of Bangs, urged further adjournment until Thursday, which was reluctantly agreed to. conkling's good talk. Conkling addressed the stalwart con ference last evening, and counselled them to he steadfast to the party of true Republican ideas and beware oí the cor rupt groupe of politicians strivingto de stroy it. He referred to the bribery cases, and said the true Republicans should disdain to employ such means to accomplish such measures as employed by the supporters of the defendants, lie alluded to the growing power of the country, and of the various corpora tions arrayed against the stalwarts. It was difficult to light wealth, but es pecially when millions were unscrupu lously used by corrupt agents it was time'for Republicans to put themselves on record. He had no doubts as to the linal result between corruption and honesty. Every true lover ot his party should expose corruption, by whoever it is countenanced, and not shield him from the consequence of such a crime. He mentioned some of the leaders, some halfbreeds, and asked if any hon orable man can for a moment think of compromising; with such notorious characters. He comments on the bri bery in detail. If anything should dis tinguish Republicans it should be per sonal honesty, especially keeping aloof from notorious lobbyists. If this con dition of affairs continues what will be come of the party that saved the Un ion and accomplished the abolition of slavery. He could see no hope for any party which starts with bribery as its cornerstone and the acts of lobby as its decorations. He sincerely hoped the charges were untrue. But testimony had convinced him that there is cause to be vigilant and careful. He dwelt earnestly on these . points, warning his friends of attempts still making to pro vent the free expression openly by the legislature as to the Senatorship. Foul Mu ra or. San Francisco, June 22. A dispatch from Tombstone, Arizona says: The following particulars of the killing of Hazlett Bros, who killed Leonard and Harry Head the Contention stage rob bers last week and a German at Eureka N. M., by cow boys last wpek: They were surprised by a party of twenty cow boys while playing cards in a saloon at Eureka anu had no chance to defend themselves. Bill Hazlett was shot six times through the body and Ike twice through the stomach and the German six times through the body. As soon as the liring ceased the party mounted and rode away. There is no trace as to who they were. cu Lew Wallace's Marginal Note. Yesterday I went into the room of Assistant Secretary Hitt, at the State Department, and met Gen. Wallace com ing out. While waiting to talk with Mr. Hitt, I picked up from the table the first volume ot "Badeau's Life of Grant." Turning over the leaves I found, on page 44, the following para graph marked : "The assault was renewed upon Lewis Walace with great vigor, and he, too, was compelled to fall back, though slowly and fighting hard." On the margin opposite the para graph was this inscription in the hand writing of Gen. Wallace: "This is a lie. I never fell back an inch. Lew Walace." Turning on to page 80 and 81, I found the following paragraph marked: "Lew Wallace, one of Grant's own division commanders, was equally re miss; but he, who had been a month on the ground, excused himself by stating that he had taken the wrong roail, marching toward Purdy instead of Pittsburgh; yet his troops had helped to build the bridge over Snake Creek for just such emergencies as had now oc curred. He was, however, set right by Capt. (afterward Lieutenant-Colonel) Rowley and Col. (afterwards Major General) McPherson, both at the time on Gen. Grant's staff. They put him in the right direction at one o clock, and it took him till seven that night to march five miles in the direction of the battle, though the cannonading was heard at Nashville, a hundreumiles away. On the bottom of the margin of page 81 Gen. Wallace had made this inscrip tion; "There are more wilful falsehoods in the foregoing paragraph than in any other of the same length in English lit erature. Lew Wallace." The Denuer & Rio Grande railroad has struck a new feature in American enterprise. It wants to complete its track and build up the country through which it is to pass, and advertises tor fifty priests at $100 a month each, a sal ary much better than any diocese in the country pays its priests. But priests must have more than a salary. They must have a commission to officiate, which can only come from a bishop. They must have permission from their bishops to leave their diocese for an other, and the demand for priests is now greater than the supply. No doubt the Deaver & Rio Grande railroad is able to carry out the salary considera tion, but where will it find the priests? In retirement, at Elizabeth X. J., lives William F. Somers, who was with Custer on the day of the memorable massacre by the Indians. He was the bugler, and was left for dead on the field. He was afterwards found by Gen. Terry's dóg. On Saturday last his pa pers were found correct, and he is now receiving a pension from the goverm-mcnt. Lyman Itarbed Fencing Wire. The agent representing Sher man and Marsh, sole manufacturers of the Lyman barbed fencing wire, manu factured at Grand Crossing, 111, is int hecitj'. O. L. Houghton, the ener getic hardware merchant and dealer in agricultural implements and machin ery, has the sale of this superior fenc ing material. The Lj'man barbed wire fencing does not depend upon asser tion to establish its merit, but upon act ual test and comparison with other wires for strength, utility, finish and durability. In every contest in which it has been entered it has never been defeated. At Cincinnati, Davenport, Syracuse, Montreal, St. Louis, Kansas City and the Centennial, it has been awarded the first prize for utility and strength over all competitors. The wire is likewise as low as any fencing wire made. Mr. Houghton also keeps on hand the celebrated gum paint, mix ed with boiled oil and iron mineral for the purpose of covering and protecting fencing wire. Extensive expenments have proved this to be the most elastic and durable covering now in use. Ranchmen and farmers desiring fenc ing wire will do well to call at Mr. Houghton's, examine and price this wire, as there is none better for fenc ing. He always keeps the best goods made. WclU-Fnrgo Express. A report has been in circulation in the city for a number of days to the ef fect that the A., T. & S. F. R. R. com pany was intending to forbid the Wells Fargo express company from doing bus iness on its line. We doubted the re port when it first became current, for it is only a few months since the railroad officials took a decided stand against the Adams company and in favor of the Fargo. Upon interviewing Mr. Nate Walthall, the very competent chief clerk and acting agent of the Wells- Fargo office in this city, wc were inform- j ed by that gentleman that he had as yet heard nothing about the proposed with drawal, beyond the reports current on the streets. He is in daily communica tion with officers of the company, who would, in all likelihood, be apt to know something of such a change as soon as outsiders, and not a word has been said or written to him about it. It is safe to say that it is a canard. We should all dislike to see the Fargo company go off this line, for in all its dealings with peo ple in this Territory it has acted fair and honorably. , Mr. Walthall states that his company is doing the bulk of the business in this city. Jemez Springs. On Saturday at 3 p. m. the contract for building the hotel and bath house at Jemez Springs will be let at Chas. Wheelock's office. As soon as the con tract is awarded, the work will be pushed to speedy completion. It is the desire of the owners of the Springs to place everything in readiness for the reception of guests at this sanitarium. The beginning will be small, and the hotel and bath house will be but tem porary structures, although everything will be made as conven! ni and com fortable as possible under the r'reum stanees. The hotel will be a long ramb ling stone building, one story high, with fifteen rooms. The bath house will contain seven baths. The Springs will be extensively advertised, and it is not improbable that they may be made the subject of a magazine article. If the proposed roil road to the Springs is ever built, it will make the Jemez Springs a good place of resort for in valids and tourists. The road from the bridge to the plaza must be fixed; or otherwise the heavy freight teams will wear out the street car rails. Fighting the Desperadoes. The board of county commissioners of Rio Arriba county petitioned Gov. Shel don for eighty rifles and accoutrements and 80,000 cartridges for the equipment of a militia company to protect the cit izens of the county against the despera does who infest that region. The New Mexican of yesterday stated : I Cnnnt.v Clerk Sabiznx hrouo-ht the ne- tition and stated that the gang now op erating up there was principally located at Amargo on the 1). & R. G. R. R. ; that the people of Tierra Amarilla, Los Ojos, Brazos and Las Nutritas desired to protect themselves and if furnished arms would be able lo do so. Several other citizens of that section, among whom is W. E. Broad of Chama, stated that the county was unsafe. Mr. Broad himself, who is the agent of the Tierra Amarilla grant, had to take six armed men as an escort two weeks ago, while going from Chama to the coal banks to pay oft' the force working on the coal mines, (ion. Sheldon directed Adju tant General Frost to prepare and ship sixty stands of arms and ammunition to Tierra Amarilla to T. 1). Burns, who is to be captain of the militia company. This will make two companies in Rio Arriba county, one at Bloomfield and one at Tierra Amarilla, the two places being about one hundred and ten miles apart. Go to Mrs. Andrews' south of old Ga zette office for board. 6-23-3W Rams and Edwin Forrest ( Trot ifRlnut T ms-A Nile in 2:0. Mr. Robert Bonner is confident that his trotters, Rams and Edwin Forrest, can beat the best time on record. A Sun reporter asked Mr. Bonner yester day whether he proposed to trot these horses against time. He replied: "If I can get Rarus and Edwin For rest into a satisfactory condition, I may give an exhibition trot in August. I have not arranged details, but either the Prospect Park or Hartford track will probably be selected, as I do not consider the Fleetwood track fast enough. I think either Edwin Forrest or Rarus ought to beat 2:10, and the former driver of Rarus, Splann, thinks he can go in 2:08. Both horses have trotted in 2:11 on a three-quarter track, which is considered by sporting men better than 2 :10 on a mile track. You see on a three-quarter track you go round a circle of twenty-three acres, while on a mile track you traverse a cir cle of forty-two acres. It is easy to un derstand that in the former case the turns are much more abrupt than in the latter. No half mile track can be as fast as a three-quarter track, nor any three quarter track as fast as a mile, track. A week ago to-day I drove Edwin Forrest to a top wagon, 356 pounds, in 2:22, and at present he is in better shape than any other horse I've got. I have no doubt that both horses, can beat the best records." Mr. Bonner added that the rainy sea san had greatly interfered with the ex ercising of his "horses on his track near Tarrytówn. The track had been plowed up and manured to make it elastic, so tnat, sponge-like, it absorbed the rain instead of drying in a day or two, as was ordinarily the case. Odds and Ends. During the late round-up in the lower portion of Colfax and Mora counties, over 0,000 stray cattle were taken up. Chas. A. Dana, editor of the New York Sun, and family, are at Colorado Springs, where they will spend the sum mer. Our immigration for the past eleven months was ñ04,2(J4. Germany leads with 175,300, but Canada contributed 110.011. The coal vein now being opened up by the company in Dillon canyon near Raton is of a superior quality. The vein is eight feet thick, three feet ot coal, twelve inches of slate, with a four foot layer of coal underneath. The company will soon be able to supply their own demand. The Cheyenne Leader is so full of cat tle brands that it looks like a corral. When Haverly's Mastodon minstrels ar rived there a few days ago, the mana ger, observing a page full of cattle wand advertisements, exclaimed: "Just my d d luck; I have got to play against a circus again." Pohcha Snrinirs (Col.) Herald: Jes sie James, supposed to be the same one wanted in nearly every State of the Union for numerous crimes, coolly walked into the postolhce at Mavsville on Wednesday of last week, and asked it any mail had arrived tnere lor lum The citizens were not positive it was the veritable James, and if they had been, it is not very probable a hand would have been laid on him. Mays ville for a few days thereafter was all agog. In the combined attack made by for eign pow ers upon the American hog, it is pleasant to see that little Switzerland stands nobly up for him, and that her t ederal Santtarv Commission has r ported, and her Government declared that no prohibition on the import of American meat is justified or required. lnis is ail tne more welcome trom our sister republic, in view of the dead set made by monarchical governments joined, strangely enough, by theJrrenen Republic against the porker of the far west. The Denver and Rio Grande have two hundred miles of railroad bed in pro cess of construction in Uutah, and are working nearly two thousand men. It is done in the name of the Silver Valley railroad. The line enters Utah from Colorado, on the Grand River forks, east of the Wausatch range, one branch going: south and following Salina Can yon through the range, the other going to Salt Lake via rleasant valley and Spanish Fork Canyon. On this branch sixty miles from Provo to Pleasant Val ley, are in operation. Deminr Headlight: The "Orleans" mine, owned by C. J. Butcher, E. J Butcher and Johnson Dewhurst, is look ing nicely. I his property is located on the northwest side ot the t loriuas. i in ledge crops out the entire, length of the two claims Orleans and May Thomas. The following assays were had from surface croppings: Silver, 28 ozs., val uation $31.01, oilier minerals not tested. The ledge is cross-cut by a tunnel at a depth of forty feet. The mine is easy of access, with plenty of wood and water convenient, and is only fifteen miles from Deming. A mill site is lo cated within 300 feet of the mime. Albuquerque Journal: A freighter named Johnson of Thackers ranche, had $300 in a hole under his bunk. The money was stolen last Friday night, and a young man who was doing the cook ing for Johnson was suspected of the theft. Johnson and Jim Trainor caught him and nearly beat him to death. They would have killed him on the spot had, not aman named White interfered. Saturday night Johnson and Trainor again caught the young man and beat him badly and hung him up till he was nearly dead, when a freighter called "Tex." interfered and saved his life. The young man pro tested his innocence all the while. The citizens of the vicinity held a meeting Sunday in' regard to the brutal affair but we have not heard results, it transpires that a fourteen year old son of Johnson is suspected of. stealing the money and loosing it playing poker.
