A few days since' having nothing special on hand; iooK,'i slrol tlirougli the large Ilardwai-c- frjorw of O. L. Houghton ot this place Wo Averc surprised at every step. Everything had assunicd such vast proportión8 tm$i Wa laad last looked at;his stock. Mr. Houghton moved a stock of goods into this town about .1 year ago, not however until he had traveled over n abater portion of the Territory in search of a location and had made up his mind that Las Vegas wa;j to be tlie leading city of the South west. He then declared that Lna Vegas henceforward was to be his homo and She headquarters of his large business operations,, lie at once frft aboil t fitting u 9 a store and ordering g o 's.. One large Hardware store was established on the North side of tho LMaza in tho old i.:irt. n- town lór geiierall business, in whiuh is kept a very large stock of slieif goods anuinitions, guns .and pistols. especiay v of Sharp's and Colt's make. On the East side near the Depot a very large building, 50 feet iront by 100 ieet was built for the conveniciicff of ishippiiigand reshaping goods aud the carrying on of a general wholesale business, The interior of this build ing is partitioned-01? into four rooms, the iirs-t of which is the sales room; '25x80 ft the second is the store room; '25 ft. front by 80 ft deep; the third is a manufacturing! apartment nvherein is manufactured, all kinds of sheet iron aud copper work avid, all kinds of tin piece work, from 9 to 12 hands are kept constantly employed in this department; the fourth room ,is a neatly furnished office with tickets openiugjnto tho; shies room and man ufacturing department and also con nected with the stoi'c in the west part of town by a telephone- . This is one of tlia'n'nest buildings in this part of N. M. Mr. Houghton says as for him and his,'' this is only owe town; the grand old city of Ls Vegas. Anything in the line of hardware, shelf goods or tin ware can bo had here alroady made 9r can- kMMnde at this establishment.

This explana tion is given by the engineer who built; the ondge. 1 here have been a number of very serious accidents bv the falling, of truss bridges, ami? ft seems strange- that so important a featue as tho proteetioa of djie ties, or cross pioces, shou4d not bé atten ded to and thesó a wall as others be protected against danger of breakage.. There are many causes for car trucks leaving: tfieTra hii, and ihat there was no provision for such an occurrence on the bridge, shows an inexcusable carelessness, 6n ílier part i( the cud- iicas himself. A Aovel case ot law is before the superior court .of Massachusetts; .; A. Catholic priest told his parish not to natronize a certain hack owner named Dufresiwas because he had disobevod a church command.. Dufresucs wucs the priest for ilO,(X)oV alleging that his business has fallen off' one-'ulf. The priest testified that ke had power as npriest.to forbid ? Bis eople to have dealings with á recatcifratit member. The chief interest- in the case attaches to the. question of the relation of itif if. law to theacjEuittyr alleged rights' of ecclesiastical disci pline.

Surface indications mul tiply which go to show tti-it Bismarck has arrived at an understanding with the Vatican The latest of these is annoiuieed iu the cable dispatches this Jnornjiigj to the effect that thc Pope has requested the apvoiutment of l'rivy Counceller Hans'fr toi-ontiniie the 'negotiations Avith tWe nuncios at Munich and Vien na, and that the German Chancellor has acceded to the request. , t -s.: , .
