East Las Vegas, New Mexico, Friday Evening, April 22, 1892.

In conversation with Hon. W. T.
Thornton, president of tho New
Mexioo World's Columbian fair com
mission, tbat gentleman said yester
day: "We propose to proceed at-once,
as you will tee by our notice of meet
ings published in today's New Mexi
can, to every county in tho territory
for the purpose of organizing the
work in the several departments.
As you know, we beld a meeting a
few days ago in Las Graces, where
we met the Commercial club, and had
this club to call a meeting of the cit
izens of tho county for Tuesday of;
last week, at which meeting I was
present, and explained tho program
of procedure marked out by the
board. This program was unani
mously endorsed by resolution; t415
was at once subscribed by the gen
tlemen present to aid the work in
that county, and tho assurance given
that 12,000 would be raised, if neces
sary. The club agreed to earnestly
aid the work and give personal atten
tion to the collection of the exhibit
in that county. We intend to pro
ceed in tho same manner in the oth
er counties, and hope to meet with
''Speaking of the meeting in Las
Cruccs, what have you to say about
Mrs. Bartlett's resignation?"
"Nothing, except that it was a
surprise to mo, and th$t I deeply re
gret it, as I realize that she was tho
most zealous, active and faithful
worker connected with the World's
fair from this territory, and know
ing that it would bo difficult to se
enro any one to tako her place wo de
clined to accept her resignation, hop
ing that she might be induced to re
"Did not the action of tho board
compel her to take the step she did
to save her self respect."
"No, the board has always been
partial to her and has given her at
her request much work to do outside
of the ordinary woman's work."
"What about the action of the
board in appointing joint committees
in San Miguel county? Was not
this in violation of tho original
agreement for a subdivision of tho
"No; what was done was simply
to authorize one financial committee
instead of two in San Miguel county,
and this was at the written request
of tho county commissioners of that
county, of tho Commercial club of
Las Vegas, of the trustees of East
Las Vegas, and a large number of in
fluential persons of that county. Tho
action did not affect any other coun
ty, and wo could not have declined
to allow tho people of San Miguel to
do the work in their own way with
out practically stopping the work in
that great county. This action was
not to affect any money already
raised or the organization of the
several committees of the lady man
agers; each was to prosecute in her
own way, and with her own commit
tees, the work assigned them."
"Mrs. Bartlett tendered her resig
nation before the vote was taken,
not, as some seem to think, of her po
sition of lady manager, but of the
special work given her by the board
at her request. Her position as lady
manager is in no way affected, and
I am informed she is now in San
Juan county prosecuting this work

Threo gentlemen of a scientific
turn of mind went to the Springs
yesterday to investigate tho caves
there. Having descended the shaft,
they entered tho subtcranean cavern,
and being fascinated by tho beautiful
spars and irridescunt -gems which
surrounded them, they passed a reso
lution to perambulate further.
One of the gentlemen, being of a
more determined spirit than the rest,
and having the interest of the Amer
ican Microscopical Geological Arche
ological Association at heart, pro
ceeded to tho extremity of tho cavern
and crawled into a fissure there.
"Bill," he shouted to one of the
boys behind him, "I've got a beauty."
"What is it, Joe?"
"It's a gold nugget, Hill."
'Let mo see it," said Robert
Thomas, as he poked his nose into
"By gosh!" says Joe, "I can't get
out. Pull ine out, boys."
So Bill tugged at ono foot and Bob
at tho other, but he wouldn't budge
or if ho did ho would spring back
again liko a piece of elastic. They
then caught hold ofhis coat tail and
scat of his unmentionables, but their
efforts were useless.
Billy Iloffrian was about to give it
up for a bad job.
Robert Thomas was so exhausted
as to be obliged to sit down.
"Try again," cried Joe,"try again ;"
and the boys tried, and wero sur
prised to find how easy it was to

and I feel that the interests of New caught hold or a rock to keep himself j

are too great to bo jeopardized by reported how Joe got wedged into a j
taking part in petty quarrels." cave and had to be extracted.

out most, accurately. Not tho slight
est jar was apparent anywhere and
every circumstance conspired to
make the occasion a glittering suc
cess, liven the heavens wero aus
picious, and Old Sol came out in all
his grandeur and gave us tho most
beautiful, balmy day of the season.
Tho attendance of lovely women and
distinguished men, many of them
guests of the occasion invited from
their far-away homes, was largo and,
under a generous glare of electricity
in tho spacious halls of tho club

Never before had. such a general or
successful effort at elaborate costum

effect was simply bewildering.
Taste, suitable effect, elegance and
grace wero noticeable in the cos
tumes on every hand.
Tho music, by tho Fort Wingate
band, was superb, and tho viands
and wines, that wero temptingly
spread in tho banquet hall on the
first floor, could not bo excelled.
At 9 o'clock tho orchestra an

dancing cou tinned .until 11-o'clock,
