The jury in the rase of John Dohany
against Cooke & Morgan have decided in
favor of thi ! defendant. In this case Mr.
Dohany sought to recover about $500
rent , claiming that Cooke & Morgan va
cated ono of the .stores in the opera house
before their lease was up. and that ho
ought to be paid for the full term of the
lease. The defense was that Mr. Dohany
had consented to their leavjng , and Unit
they hud paid for ail the time I hey had
occupied the More , nnd were hold by no
lease for nny more time.
The A. O. II. js preparing for a grand
ball in Masonic hall on the night of
tlie 17th. Excellent music lias been en
gaged and other arrangements made to
in Run ; a good time for all. The sanio
evening there will bo a dramatic enter
tainment given by seine of the young
.Irish folks in the opera house. Those
who attend the dramatic entertainment
can go from there to the ball room , while
those who do not want to go to tlio opera
house can attend the ball earlier in the
evening , as music will bo provided be
fore the dramatic entertainment is over.
A merchant sent out the other day a
youth to collect .some bills for him. The
youth had occasion to call on u lady atone
ono of the hotels , and , meeting a boy in
the hall , asked of him the room occupied
by the lady. After getting information
4ft thu youth witli the bill didn't wail to
knock , but went in , with more zeal than
judgment. Tlio lady was in anything but
reception condition. A .shriek fol
lowed , the lady wont with u
rush to the next room , while the
young fellow , not wanting to retreat ,
hold his own until her return in proper
garb for attending to business. Theyoutli
is less zealous now in rushing into hotel
rooms to collect bills.
Now begin the conjectures as to what
will bo done about the police force. It is
expected that with the incoming of the
new mayor there will bo miito a radical
change in tlio force. No doubt the
present chief , tlio captain nnd others of
the foicc will have their resignations ac-
ceuted , Tlio report of tlio council com
mittee in regard to the charity clothing
is a shadow over the record of some ot
the force , and tlio present mayor has
done nothing to help them out , simply
Jetting them remain with tiie probability
of their leaving the force with the shadow
still over them. It'they are not guilty ,
nnd there are reasons for not believing
the report of the committee , tlio matter
fihouhl have been straightened tu > betoro
the men slop down and out. If they are
guilty perhaps Mayor Vanghan pursued
thu best course in neglecting to take nny
further action. Some are expecting that
thn new mayor will combine the ollico of
chief of police and marshal by appointing
Man-lull liuanolln as chief also. Others
predict that K. Jackson will be made
chief of police.

IMissoi'iu VAI.I.IY , March 3. Tito city
election \vt < ? a most c\citin one. The
town has just boon organized as a city of
the second clasi , ami this was the first
election of city olllccr.s. The result
showed that the wards had been pretty
well divided , llio number of votes being ,
First ward 1M , Second 171 , Third 178 ,
making u total of 41)1. ) The two candi
dates for mayor were both democrats. F.
M. Dance was llm regular nominee of the
democratic convention , and O. li.Dulton
was called out by a citi/ens' ticket , ho
having been nominated for one of the
aldermen on the democratic ticket. Dutton -
ton carried every ward in the city , his
total mnjority being 18o. Dance received
a very small vote , the First giving him
39 , the Second 51 , and the Third 02. There
was much blltiirnc.ss and many iicrsonstl
clashes preceding the election , but now
all seem pretty \\cll satislied over the re-
suit. Mr. Dntton is the president of the
First National bank , and Is a man who is
respected and trusted. The aldermen
elected were as follows ; First ward ,
Henry Tlmrber , Clark 1'ralhard ; Second ,
E. F. Jamiw , R. P. MeTwifrgin ; Third ,
Mr. Lo ( ! row. The other alderman in
the Third will have to bo decided by lot ,
or some other way. Mr. Middloton , G.

singular result , which piu/.les all.

Death of Sain Pnlnc.
Samuel L 1'aine , one of the oldest citi-
yens of this place , and widely known
hero , died yesterday at his home on Grace
street. He was 70 years of ace , and had
lived here for very many years. Ho was
a delegate to the recent city democratic
convention , and .several times made the
lutiKU'k to other delegates that it might
be the last limo for him. This strange
foreboding of the approaching end was _
supposed lo come from bis feeble condi
tion and advancing age , but there seemed
no cause why it should bo ko soon ical-
ixril , and the announcement of his death
will come with surprise to many. It
hccms that the old gonlleman caught a
severe cold , and in his feeble condition
was unable to ward it on" , and with other
complications aggravated by it , death
came. He leaves one bon and one daugh
ter. Mrs. U. W. Price. The funeral will
be liejd at the Catholic church to-morrow
morning at 0 o'clock.

sion was a joyous ono. A grand supper
was served , and then there was dancing
until a late hour. The liavarian band
furnished the music. Button-hole bo
nnets were furnished all the guests , and
tlio hospitality in all details was un

"Lynch law is better than no law , " re
marked n Texas cowboy to ft Chicago
Daily News reporter at the stock yards.
"It's well enough for yon follows that
live in cities , whcro they hang just
enough man-killers to keep yon quiet and
give you some respect for the law , to ob
ject to Judge Lynch , but you would have
a better opinion of him if you lived any
where within lifty miles of the Mexican
frontier in cither Texas , Now Mexico or
Arizona. WUy , if it wasn't for that or
nament to tlio bench no man's life would
bo safe against the pistol of any man who
wanted to kill him and didn't mind pay
ing a few thousand dollars for the prhi-
"I'll give you an Idea how the racket is
workciFdown on the Mexican frontier.
Down in the liltlo town of Slmk pcro in
the I'yramid mountains' ' , New Mexico , it
miner named Hob Fnunbo was killed by
his partner , Hill Carroll , in n saloon ,
Tlio boys wcro all out working on their
prospects or Hill would have stretched
liomp. As it was ho mounted his horse
and rode over to hiker City , whore lie
gave him elf up. A justice ot the peace
held him to bail in $2.000. Hill had plen
ty of money , so ho gives $1,000 lo u cat
tleman who was in town and another
$1,000 to the proprietor of Iho biggest ho
tel , nnd they go on his bond , while ho
takes ills horse ami cleans out for old
Me.xico. When tlio ease was called tlio
bondsmen paid up , and that was the end
of it. .
'Ton can't put the tapaojos over the
ovcs of Judge Lynch in no sneh way.
Thn tapaojos is a blind wo put over the
eves of kicking mustangs or mules. No ,
sir. Judge Lynch ain't never partial an'
he'd as soon string tip a Vnnflorhilt as ho
would the meanest cuss that ever stole a
"There wr > s Joe Fowler. Do you think
New Mexico law would reach him , with
his ? ' 50I000 cold coin in the Hank of So
corro. not to think of other lixin's ? You
see , 1-owler hud a daisy little ranch in So
corro count v , with a good bunch of cat
tle on it anil a number of cowboys. Ho
was quiet enough when sober , but when
he. got drunk lie was ugly. In the space
of three years ho had killed half a dozen
men , an' when lie came into Socorro on
a hoorah respectable citizens who didn't
care to stop his stray bullets hunted holes.
When ho entered a saloon in tlio depth
of winter oven the man around the stove
lit out to enjoy tlio stoim. As the oligin-
eor-in-ehiof of a private graveyard lie was
enjoying quite $ t reputation when ho bit
oil more nor no could chaw.
"Ono of Fowler's cowboys was a young
fellow named Jack Calo , an' if the cuss
over had a liking for anyone it was
thought ho hud itfor this youngster , who
was just terncd 20. When Fowler sold
his ranch to some Colorado men for $50-
000 lie invited Cale and all the boys into
Socorro to have a good timo. Joe was
whoopin' her up an' lirin' oil' his gun
when the landlord of the Grand Central
hotel , whore they wcie sta\ing , asked
Cale to get him to go to bed. Cale and
some of the others got him into tlio street ,
when Joe suddenly turned on the boy and
slabbed him to the hcatt. Joe bud an examination -
amination an' was committed to jail , an'
as there were rumors of Judge Lynch
holdin' court the militia were called out
by Gov. Sheldon to guard the jail. Well ,
the boys lay auiet until the irial , when
Joe was found guilty and sen
tenced to bo hanged. Joe never"
heard of a rich man bein' hanged
in the territory and when Judge Hell
sentenced him lie laughed in the judge's
face. His lawyers took an appeal to the
supreme court. The court petitioned tlm
governor to remove the militia , as it
would be two years before the appeal
could bo heard , an' the expense would
break the tax-payers all up. The gov
ernor removed the militia , an' three
nights afterward the jail was broken
into , and .loo Fowler wns _ before a court
where writs of havc-'is-carcass don't
count. The boys took the cowardly
wretch , who was yellin' for help , up a
green lane that leads to the Hillings
smelter. They had thrown the rope over
the limb of the first cottonwood they'd
come to , when some one remarked that
it was in front of a private liouso where
there wcro women folks , an' the sight of
the stiff might kind of scare them in the
early inornnt' . So they took him a few
hundred yards higher up and ran him up ,
yellin' till the rope tightened. "
"I presume you wcro there , by your
vivid description ? " broke in the reporter.
"You may presume what you like , but
I'll toll you one thing , young man : You
can travel along the frontier , from the
month of the Hio Grande to Tin Junnn ,
Cal. , an' you'll not find a man who over
saw a lynching , oxcoptit was away back.
"I think as how I said , " resumed the
cowboy , "that I never knowed of Judge
Lynch bein' partial , an' , as a general
proposition , that's so , but I think i know
of one ease where he was a trillo oil' the
right trail. That was when they hung
Russian Hill , him as turned out after
ward to have been a count inviiis own
country , though ho never counted for
much on the frontier. He was a
handsome , dark-complexioned man of
about ! ! 0. rigged out in one of them
fringed bhckskin suits j'ou see on the
stage. He took up with the 'rustlers , '
but thcv didn't bank much on him an' I
don't think they ever took him along on
a raid. Von see , men who have got sand
arc down on blowers , an'to hear Russian
Bill talk when ho w.is well an' full you'd
think he'd blown holes through half a
county. Ho was a superior kind of fel
low , though , as ono could see when lie
was sober. Ho could talk Gorman ,
French and Mexican like n native , and at
such times as he was sober spoke and
acted like a gentleman. All went well
with him until the country commenced
to fill up with tendcifeet who believed
in tlio poor blower's stories of the men
lie killed and Cattle raids ho had been on.
Ono day ho rode into Shakspero when
the ucoplo were in no humor for toolin' .
Several hor.scs had been stolen from old
Smyth's corral , and a vigilance commit
tee had been formed. A well-known
young 'rustler' named Sandy King bad
been locked up in an old adobe on sus
picion , when Bill Tettorborn arrived.
Nothin' would do the darn fool than go
to Kocksey's saloon , fill himself full of
cowboy's cordial , an' denounce the
vigilantes. Hocksoy tried to stop him ,
but it were no use an' sure enough
in an hour he was kcopin' com
pany in the old adobe. About ! )
o'clock next mornin * there was a
necktie party , and Sandy and Bill were
the principal guests , Sandy died game ,
but Hill begged for mercy , said it was all
a mistake , an' that he never stole no
man's stock nor oven killed his man ; but
ho had told dltlbront stones so often Unit
the boys wouldn't believe him an' ' strung
him up with tho. other. I believe he
told the truth though. I don't believe
ho ever killed any tiling bigger nor a mos
