* A special from Las Vegas , N. M. ,
says : "At a ball given b > Mexicans
of LJS Mila , this county , Saturday
night , eight Americans attended. A
bitter feeling against the whites was
engendered among the native' , and lu
a few minutes a free-for-all fight took
place. The firing was quick and fatal.
"Doc" Hodges and Frank Smith , two
young Americans from Malsens and
Leviahe camps , were murdered ia
cold blood. Hodges was shot through
the head and once through the chest ,
and his body snatched by the infur
iated Mexicans , and the remains were
found Monday burned to a crisp.
Smith was seen to fall in the melee ,
and when his friends rallied , they
could not find him. Fearful that he
lud been killed outright , and the body
hidden , a diligent search was kept up
all day Monday. Early yesterday
morning a few unfaltering friends
found the remains. The corpse was
perforated with bullets , and the skull
crushed by heavy stones. One Mex
ican was killed , and several others
wounded. The indignation of the
tie-choppers of Glcrictha mountain
Is at fever heat , and war may result
between the two factions. "

Vennor's predictions for the last two
quarters of the present month have
been fulfilled. He promised plenty
of snow and severe weather , which we
have had , and especially the latter
part His predictions for the last
tire quarter * of this month are as
follows : Middle of the month will
bring snow falls , which will terminate
in milder weather towards the end of
the third quarter. Thia thaw , which
will bo interrupted by a cold spell ,
will extend from about the 18th of
the month into February. The record
of the month will show it to have
been a sr-vereone , and the general con

remind us somewhat of real old-
fashioned winters.

of the house would pass these bllli.

WASHINGTON , January 19 1 a. m.
The committee on foreign aff&ii-a
held a meeting yesterday , and gave a
hearing to W. H. Webb , of NQTT
York vs. the Panama ship canal
scheme , and its support of the policy
of the Monroe doctrince. He advo
cated the abrogation of the Clayton-
Bulwer treaty , as soon as the time
would permit , by the terms of said
treaty , and said that the Nicaraguan
canal could be buUt in four or five
years. He could build it in thia time ,
and if he should receive for doing so
$50,000,000 he could make himself
one or two millions a year. He
stated that it was an old policy of
Franco to build a canal to gradually
absorb the territory , and England
would favor any such scheme for the
same purpose , and with an ultimate
hope of gaining its ultimate control.
In his opinion , Nicaragua waa the
onlv spot on God's earth where a canal
could be bnllt. Ex-Secretary Thomp
son followed ic support of the Pana
ma ship canal. He reiterated his re
marks made Monday befpro the com
mittee of the inter-oceanic ship canal ,
and said that the French govef nme'j {
had disclaimed anything to do with jj

LINCOLN , Neb. , January 19 10 p.
m. The prevailing opinion to-night
is that the backbone of the Paddock
boom is broken. Paddock's boast
that ho would have forty-eight to fifty
votes on the first ballot , caused great
disappointment to Ira followers when
they found he fell below forty. Des
perate efforts are being made to-night
to secure additional votes for him on
the first joint ballot to-morrow , but
indicationsaro that ho will lose more
votes than he can gain. Thuraton
declared to-night thnt if Paddock fail ?
on the firat ballot to-morrow , hia fol
lowers must awing around to Nance.
This programme cannot be carried out
without Borioni loss , as many Paddock
men will never support Nance. The
field atill remains unorganized , but
confident of final victory when the
vote Is pooled. E. ROSEWATER.
