The decision by Judge F. W. Parker

against Ibe New Mexico Midland rail-

since the Rants Ke Railway company
took tip Us tracks bet ween San An-
tonln and Carthage. The Denver peo-
ple were building on the otrt Santa Ke
right of way when they were stopped
by a preliminary Injunction granted
the Han Antonio & Eastern Railroad
company, backed by C II Klmendorf
and Kansas City capitalists, whose Ob-
ject is not quite clear, as they possess
neither the' coal mines at Carthage
nor a traffic agreement with the Hanta
Ke. without whleh a hraneh line from
Han Antonio to Carthage would not be
worth the coal of the plats. The plain-

“QUALITY AND QUANTITY."
Captain Krank A. Kuhliell of the re-
publican central committee has given
In to the importunities of the repub-
lican leaders, who are afraid of an en-
ergetic democratic campaign, and has
called a meeting of the executive com
mltl.ee for Monday at Albuquerque, to
set an early dale for the territorial
convention at Albuquerque There
seems no doubt of the renomlnatlon of
Delegate Rodey, who the republicans
claim will certainly bo re-elected, al-
though by a reduced majority. The
democrats claim that If they can se-
cure an honest count In Bernalillo and
Valencia counties that they wjll elect
the democratic candidate. They ex-
pect tn addition to carry Ban Miguel,
Rants Ke. Colfax. Union. Quay, l-eon-
ard Wood. Otero, Lincoln, Orant,
Luna. Socorro, Mora. Ban Juan Taos
and Sierra counties by maturities ag-
gregating 3,008 or more. Against this
II Is expected that Bernalillo, Valeri-
,cia. Rio Arriba, McKinley, Handoval
and Dona Ana will give republican
majorities aggregating 4,000 to 5,000,
Of course tbe republicans figure dlf-
it rently, conceding only Chaves, Eddy,
Huoaovolt, Sail Juan. Sierra, Orant,
it- *ro, Lincoln anil Quay counties to
fbe democrats with 4,000 majorities.
,igainst which they expect do roll up
7.0011 to 8,000 majorities In the other
counties. The legislative fight, will
not be as one-sided as In the past six
years. The democrats count upon
electing the members of the council
from Santa Ke. from San Miguel, from
the lower Pecos country, from Colfax.
Mora and Union, from Socorro and
Sierra, and from the southwestern
counties, a total of nine, while conced-
ing three to the republicans. The re-
publicans also claim nine, conceding
the democrats three. In the house
each side claims fourteen to eighteen
members out of the twenty-four, but
prognost teat ions can lie better made
after the candidates are put up. Most
of the democratic leglsltlve eandl
dales will l»e nominated at the terri-
torial convention at Las Vegas next
week by tbe different district conven-
tion*. which have been called for the
same date and place.

COWBOY FELL VICTIM TO FAIR
After Getting a Few Drinks Under Hie
Belt Woke Up MinuJ $75—Women
Placed Under Arrest and Part of
Joe Barnes came to town to have
a good time but wound up with a sud-
den jar that stopped his watch. Barnes
is a cow boy and works on a ranch
about fifteen miles west of here. Many
a time has he braved the Texas north-
er or dashed In front of a sea of long
horns as they rushed along frantical-
ly in their mad stampede, but bright
cheeks, blue eyes and a sweet persu-
asive voice proved too much for him
and he succumbed as gently as a pro-
fessional subject to the demonstr*.
tions of a hypnotist. When he came
to he was shy $75.
In his peregrinations about town
Barnes drifted . down to , Utah Btreet
and there met Hazel Williams and
Minnie Wilson, evening stars of the
deml-mondes. While one of the wo-
men engaged Barnes in conversation,
the other is alleged to have abstracted
tbe money from Barnes' coat,, which
was hanging on a chair.
Barnes reported his Iors to the po-
lice station ami Officer Franco wj^
detailed on the case. When Franco
entered the place where the two wo-
men live he saw one of them making
a desperate effort to secrete som-
thing which she had in her hand. Fin-
ally she threw It Into a corner of the
room. Franco picked It up and saw
that it was a roll of three five dollar
bills. He put the two women under
arrest and they were locked up In the
city jail pending a hearing.
