There was an unexplaloable wreck on
th Mexican Central Sunday morning

Two freights a north and a south-
born 1. met in a head-on collision.
" Two men. two trainmen whoee
named could not be learned were seri-
rtnalr iniurl. and maiT cars on the
north-bound train derailed and partially
Tne south bound freight was hauled
by one of the immense Dew consolida-
tion engines which hare been cotniner
thrfopb El Paso. The north bound
had one of the old time engines which
has seen service 6ince the road was
After the wreck the b'.gr consolidated
stood ifrioaly snorting on the track in-
tact with scarcely a scratch or a mark

The big engine was able to pull her
Trtiefct on into Cnibuabua while a
wrecker was tent out from the shop9 at
'El Paso to pick up what was
!ef of the ether engine.
Toe accident is bard to understand
as ice treck ttretcbes straight away
from Sauz north for 20 mile? and the
collision occurred on the level st-etch.
The incoming passenger was delayed
an hour by the wreck which in addi-
tion to a three hours delay down the
road made it four bourslatd coming in-
xo El Paro.
THE CAP CAME BACK.
Itice it is presumed these rates will not
aoply to this far western point on any
of the roads. They have not so aj
i plied heretofore.
The Globe Gila Valley & Northern
road according to an exchange is
tilking about putting on a flyer to
connect with the Sunset Limited at

conclusion that they are entitle! to all

Special Correspondence of the Herald.
Carlsbad N. M. Dec. 9. The
movement tbat has been quietly put on
foot by large range owners in the
Pecos valley and its neighborhood to
secure the passage of a lease law for
government lands is meeting with al-
most universal disapproval In this sec
It is being urged tbat at present mil
lions of acres of land in Texas is being
occupied pa-ticularly in the Pan
handle country tbat is suppose! to be
under lease from the state and on
which rental Is being regularly paid
wnereas as a matter of fact not one
section in tan pays a dollar into the
treasury nor has it for years and years
This is a fact. Tbe writer knows of
one party who has today under fence
ten sections 6400 asres and who payB
rental on one. However it is not a
question here in the valley just now
as to whether the territory gets rental
f or its vacant lands or does not get it
The "sore" point is that each and
every county that has these Janets va
cant will in a great measure be depop
The small growers of sheep and
cattle will be compelled to - find other
pastures for their little herds and
flocks and 'their holdings will be in
corporated into the large ranges of
the cattle breeders who pay possibly
two' and a half cents an acre or are
supposed to pay it.
This sort of legislation
s hortly cause any number
i n the territory to either
or go into virtual bankruptcy for it
would have tbe effect of giving a coun
try one taxpayer in place of tsn or
twenty or in some cases fifty
No one here believes that 6uch a law
will be sanctioned by Gov. Otero as it
is eo visibly to the detriment of the in-
terests of the grazing interests of
Tbe movement of beef cattle towards
the north has now about ceased. Of
the 120000 head of all classes that
have left the valley this season it is
fair to say that Kansas Uity Has re
ceived at least ooe ' third.
It is altogether probable that next
year St. Josepb Mo. and Denver will
divide up the fat stock shipments with
Kansas City as the agents from the
stock yards of those cities have been
actively advertising their markets in
the valley for some weeks past.
Reddy" Gallagher the local
featherweight champion and Tommy
Mahar of Chicago met in the middle
of the Rio Grande bad vest irday af
ternoon in a nght which was to have
been to a finish but which was award
ed to Gallagher in the twenty-ninth
round on a foul.
A crowd of 250 local business and
sporting men ploughed out to Dunn's
road house through the sand in
wagonettes sndo&rr!a?e3 at 1:30' yes-
terday afternoon. From this
first rendezvous a mile and a half out
the party was directed to W bite's
ranch three miles further on. From
there they were about to crossover the
river when tbe Juarez chief of police
appeared wit1! a band of rurales and
patrolling the river bank warned
them against fighting on Mexican
ground. This stopped proceedings for
As a compromise the fight was pull
ed off on so-called neutral ground on
the sand "in the mush" as a local
sport said in the middle of the river
It was understood at first that the
fight was to be unconditionally to a
finish and they were to be left to mix
it up any way they wanted but in the
29th round Rsferee Billy Smith award
ed the fight to Gallagher on a foul.
The first part of. the contest was an
exhibition of sparrinc and compara
tively few blows were interchanged.
As a scientific display it was fair and
Mahar had a shade tbe best of it.
About tbe twentieth round the boys
began to mix it up a bit and each man
landed several good ones.
Maber seemed to be having the best
or i: putting in several effective punch
es below tn& heart and on the head
Neither man seemed to have suffered
much punisbment when in the twenty
ninth round the referee awarded the
fight to Gallagher on a claim of foul
A purse of about $150 was raised
among the spectators. The fight was
not a satisfactory one from the crowd's
point of view as they were anxious
see the men fight it out. It was nearly
dark wnen time was called.
Gallagher a -3d Mahar met in the ring
tnree weens ago when tbe Chicago lad
