Montrose, Colo.j Feb. 23. -The in
junction application of M. V. B. Wa-
eon to restrain the state from selling
school lauds at Creede was given a
hearing before Judge Bell today.
Mr. Wason testified in his own be
half, showing that his lease of the

eral depositions were read to sup
port this view. : Engineer Maxwell,
Matt Fiance and Attorney General
Manpin testified for the state. Court
Wasuingtok, Feb. 23. Repre
sentative Townsend, of Colorado,
when asked today for his opinion on
the passage of the free coinage bill,
replied: "Our Democratic friends
are trying to solve that very question.
As to whether this bill will pass or
not, my impressions are that it will,
but there is considerable doubt about
about it- There is an element in
favor of the bill, but I am afraid of
the result, and, in my opinion, the
passage of this bill depend on how
many are going to be affected by
Cheyenne, Feb. 23. One-third of
the total area of this state in under
laid with coal. In several districts
deposits have been on "fire for years.
There are cases where conditions
have been volcanic on account of the
creation of gases in the seams. One
of these disturbances has occurred on
the Sweetwater cattle ranch, 250 miles
from Cheyenne. More than 100
acres of surface was displaced and
the report was heard for 30 miles
and dirt thrown in the air a great
distance. The existence of this fire
has been known many years.
Denver, Feb. 23. Referring to
the Rio Grande operators' settle
ment, Chief Ramsey says: "A mini
mum of $S0 was the first proposi
tion made, but upon my recommenda
tion for a lower figure $65.50 was
agreed to with the exception of a
few smaller offices, where the rate
will be $65. Some of tho operators
will receive $85 and $90 per month.
The gain is substantially $16 per
month. The next matter to be taken
up in tho regular order will probably
be the Santa Fe, which has a mini
mum price of $50."
WILL MOVE TO NICARGUA.
New Orleans, Feb. 24. A cable
gram from Panama received here
says the govern nieut of Nicaragua
has granted the Louisiana lottery a
perpetual charter. At the expira
tion of the Louisiana charter John
A. Morris and his associates will
move the headquarters of the con
cern to Nicaragua, an J carry the bus
iness as usual. Tho lottery company
will help the Nicaragua government
$100,000 a year and will have a
INSPECTED WORLD'S FAIR BUILDINGS.
Chicago, Feb. 23. The visiting
congressmen and diplomats spent the
greater part of yesterday at Jackson
park inspecting tho world's fair
bildings, aud the result is that nine
out of every ten of the representatives
and senators express their willingness
to vote for an appropriation for the
World's Columbian exposition. As
the visitors, however, only comprise
about 100 of the members of the
Fifty-second congress, the result of
to-day's light-seeing and explanations
by no means indicate the success of
tho coming appropriation bills. Tho
Commercial club banquet to the vis
itors at the Grand Pacific afforded
opportunity to some of tho visitors
to give expression of their views
concerning the World's Fair and
kindred matters. President T. W.
Harvey presided, and delivered 'the
opening address. On his right was
Senator Palmer, and on his left Si
mon McPherson, president of the
national commission. T. W. Palmer
sat next to Mr. McPherson, and
Franklin McVeigh sat next to Sena
tor Palmer. u Our Country and tho
Influence of the World's Fair " was
the -subject of Ihe ojKiiiing speech,
made, by Mr. McVeigh. Speeches
were also made by Senators Palmer
and Vilas, Congressman Carruth of
Kentucky, Robinson of Tennessee,
and many others.
A NOTED GATHERING.
Detroit, Feb. 23. Washington's
birthday, the presenoe of three or
four presidential possibilities, aside
from its own particular possibility,
Gen. R. A. Algerj and the annual
banquet of its crack Republican or
ganization, the Michigan club, were
almost too much for the southwestern
corner of this state, and it is a cause
for congratulation to all concerned
that it did not break away from the
up country and set up for itself as
the particular stamping ground of tho
next chief magistrate, be he Demo
cratic or Republican.
There were ex-President Cleve
land, of New York, and ex-Governor
Campbell, of Ohio, on the one side;
and Governor McKinley, of Ohio,
ami ix-Gov. Alger, of Michigan, on
the other, all in the city nt once,
not to mention others of national
fame, about whom it may ultimately
lie withiu the power of tho people to
say that they would grace the presi
The event which brought together
the loading Republican politicians
from all parts of the state and many
other states was the banquet tonight
of the Michigan club. The banquet
was held in the rink, and covers
were laid for 1,200 at the table on the
main floor, while upon a platform on
one side ol the hall, under a brilliant
canopy, sat tho speakers and guests
of honor to the number of 40.
General Alger presided and intro
duced the speakers, and Congressman
Burroughs, of this city, delivered tho
address of welcome to the visitors.
The set speech in response to toasts
were as follows:
Senator Perkins, of Kansas, on
Washington, the farmer and poli
Governer McKinley, of Ohio, on
"protection as a national iss le."
Hon. Greenhalge, of Massachusetts,
on "the present duty of the Republi
Senator Dolph, of Oregon, on
"Washington, the protectionist."
J. Sloan Fasset, of New York, on
Richard Yates Kerr on "young
men in politics." '
Hon. J. S. Clurkson, of Iowa; Hon.
Spooner, of Wisconsin; Senator
Wnshburne, of Minnesota, and Hon.
C. II. Grosvenor, of Ohio, were to
have responded to tho toasts, but
were prevented by unavoidable cir
cumstances from doing so.
The mines of Hjllsboro yield gold
n' proportion of four or five dollars
to one of silver. The veins are true
fissures in porphyry or trachyte, the
formation most favorable to perma
nency. Free gold bearing rocks are
not considered reliable, but the pre
cious metals at llulsboro aro found
in true sulphide combination with
copper and iron, esseutially a smelt
ing ore. The veins are almost iden
tical with those of Gilpin county,
the "Little Kingdom" of Colorado,
but the Hillsboro district will show
ten veins with pay ore at surfaeo
where Gilpin county has one. Kingu-
Mr. Cleveland is supposed to be
sadiy humming the lines, "Over the
Hill to the While house."
The people of Las Vegas are mak
ing extensive preparations for enter
taining tho irrigation convention
which is to assemble at that plaoe
next month, and confidently expect
one of the largest meetings ever
held in New Mexico. A commend
able degree of interest is manifested
in the matter all over the territory,
and there is a fair prospect that all
the various sections will be repre
sented. The question of irrigation
is one that directly concerns all of
us, since every roan's interest is more
or less affected by tho prosperity of
tlw oouainunily at large, lint just
how the convention is going 'to do
much to aid the cause of irrigation
is not apparent at first sight, unless
it be by bringing a pressure to bear
upon congress in favor of tho propo
sition to donate the arid lands to the
several states and territories and
whether this would result in good or
in harm to the cause of irrigation is
very serious problem, and tho
chances seem to be about even. But
it is generally conceded that agita
tion is the first step necessary in the
accomplishment of any great' work,
and in this way at least, the conven
tion can accomplish some good. It
can call tho attention of the publio
to tho necessity that exists here for
irrigation works, and in that way
may induce partie abroad to come
here and put money into such enter
prises. At any rate it is a good
thing, and ought 'tor be well at

Dr. Retin, a wealthy Frenchman
