conceded that the Ordinance, which pro'
scribes faster riding than six miles an

enforcement would be detrimental to the
best interests of the town. In that case
the proper thing for the counotl to do
would be to either repeal or amend it,

Summary of Late War News.
President's message given to congress
on Monday it favors intervention on
the part of this government to stop war in
Cuba, but opposes recognition of the
independence of Cubans The whole
matter Is now In the hands of congress-
Senate committee will probably recom
mend intervention Consul-Genera! Lee
has been recalled from Havana Mo-
Klnley still clings to tbe hope that war
may be averted and that Cuba's inde
pendence may be secured on an indem
nity basis Cubans are ready to volun
teer In U, S. army the moment war is
declared Army and navy officers think
war is sure to come.
The Coyote Bounty.
EmTo Guwa:
I have been Inveatlaatlne the matter
of the coyote bounty, today, and find
tnai we owe about l.uuu ana prooaoiy
more, as no record was kept of scalps
certified to and dostroyed. We, the
Union, if we have any, nave notes and
cash to the amount of 1400 and delin
quent asnessmenta to the amount of
about tauu more, wnicn I trust the sheep
men will attend to at once so that we
may meet our county court at tbe next
May term in such a condition that they
will be encouraged to help the good
work along as they have expressed them
selves ready and willing to do. Tbey, as
well as the people, nave been long sinter
ing with us. and I cannot see any reason
why our delinquent members do not put
their shoulder to the wheel and pay op.
If they would consider the damage the;
would have sustained had thia hoard of
coyotes been increasing, they would cer
tainly not hesitate to do their duty.
it would nave been sun better, nowevcr,
if they had kept the bounty paid np, for
li they had, by this time coyotes would
have been lew and lar between.

close to the source of supply with one
