JUKI prior to lib departure for
ton to look after judicial appointments Qov-
ornor Otoro signed on order commuting the
salience of Joflo Chavez y Chavez , the Las
Vegas murdorcr , to life Imprisonment. An
official nnnouncemcnt , for sonio cause or
other , was not made public untlt now , nay *
a Santa Po correspondent ot the Dsnver 1'ost.
The fact that the governor roftuod to consult
the trial judge In t'lo case causes much
comment , although on the other hand three
of the supreme court Justices who decided
against the accused Joined In the cppcal for
executive clemency. That Chavez Is a notor ,
lous criminal Is not denied. As a member of
Billy the Kid's gang years ago ho Is charged
with the most brutal crimes and he was the
f.rlnclpal In tlio murder ot young Romero at
1/38 Vegan live yeara ago , acting under direc
tions frctn the Sllva Rung of outlaws.
, The case came before the executive purely
upon technical questions of law.

were stealing and killing their cattle , rob
bing their storehouses or wool , burglarizing
etores and c'ostolllccs and occasionally as-
basslnntlng a man on a ranch remote from
any community. The fearful dread that the
Sllva gang created In that region Is still
manifest. The significant shrug of the
shoulders by the sheep and cattle herders
at a casual mention of Sllvu's < name , the
anxiety of settlers in cloiolate nxvmtaln
places for assurance that the last remnant of
the 'Sllvn ' gang had been punched , and the

In all laics about the doings of Sllva and his
folloivcrd show what dread ths pecplo who
live among the Hatan mountains , remote
from towns and from any association , with
human beings , have held for the band of out
laws now broken up and brought to justice.
Vicente Silvj was a saloon keeper In Ma
Vegas. Ho was born In San Barnallllo
county , New .Mexico , In IS 13 , was tall and
well built , and had an Intelligent face and
agreeable manners. lie Has reared a neigh
bor of the Navajo Indiana , and as a youth
he saw repeated wanton shedding of human
blood tcid know all about robberies and
rapine. It Is natural , then , that lie u-is an
outlaw at 20. Ho went with a dozen other
.Mexicans to Wyoming fci 1S77 , and waa u
vaqucro there for about a year. Ono day
lie met the wife of a Mexican railroid la
borer , und together they started on brcuchca
across the country for Colorado. The hus
band , Felipe Agullar , came home next day
and started pest haste after the elopers.
AVhat took place was never fully known ,
but Sllva end his now wife reached Loa
Vegas , worn out and ragged , after weeks
of horsotack travel , and a month later the
news followed after them tr-at an American
farmer In southern Wyoming , near Chey-
cunc , had found the decom-poo&d remains of
a man , who resembled Felipo Aguilar , be-
ccath a straw stack. The head was nearly
cut off and there were mortal cuts through
the chest. No one over doubted that Felipo
had como upon Sllva and the eloping wife ,
and that the husband had been stabbed to
death and hUj body concealed In the- straw
In 1SS3 Sllva opened a saloco In Las
Vegas. The cattle and sheep herders and
silver miners nwdo money faat these days ,
und his pMco became the meet frequented
in San Miguel county. There was always
( i crowd of cowboys , shecphcrders and wool
< und cattle buyers at Sllva'a , and the old-
tlmcrs say that some of the most oxcittag
moments they have ever known In the ter
ritories were those In Vicente Sllva's sa
loon ot an evening , when the Mcxlcano from
the ranges had become drutik and ugly.
The cattle and wool business rapidly do-
rllncd In 1SS7 and 1SSS. and custom at Sllva's
bar fell away fast. Hard times and an ox-
tmvagant taste quickly bred In Sllva the ,
old-time taste for outlawry as an easy means
of livelihood , and whllo ho toughed and
joked with patrcns at the bar and gave
csliwlallouoly and gcnerounly to charity , ho
wtia secretly and at night organizing the
iuc t thorough band of marauders yet known
in that region. Long association with the
half-breed IcidMns of San Miguel , Santa Fe

there- twisted among towering cliffs and

Manuel MalcciaJo wcro appointed to look
after the ivnch and to tell all Inquirers that

"I believe uoino 'seven people , " uald a

ou-ated In that region , "disappeared mys

At lust the secret of the crimes came. out.
ncruglo Eecmlbel , thu wealthiest ranchman
in San Miguel county , fouud four of his best
bom-ft mlcelng.
Events moved1 swiftly with the Sllva gang
after that. Sllva knew that there were sus
picions co.'icrriiliiK bla guilt Moating among
( ha people hi Las Vegas. Ho lied on Octo
ber 2C to a sccrot hiding place In tlio moun
tains near Los Alamos , Ho was indicted for
liorso and caltle stealing on November 7 ,
ISO.1 , and became a refugee from justice.
The governor of the territory and the eburHTs
lu northern Now Mexico got together and
offered. $1.000 for hie capture.
Suspcctlcs that ulsvlfo. . and ben youthful
brother , Qabrlcl Sandoval , were giving Information
mation tn the flherlff nnd the secret organ
ization of citizens that were slowly uncover
ing the crimes of his band , he- planned their
deaths. The plans wcro finished by January
23 , 18D3 , and on the evening ot that day
Sllva and Ouadalupc Cabre-lloro rode stealth
ily Into Las Vegas. Two policemen In the
town , Julian Trugcllo and Jose Chavez y
Chavez , who had been partially In league
will } the robbers nnd murderers from the
flrst , were sought out. They agreed to go
with Sllva to his own adobe homo and to
stand guard at the door whllo Sllva and
Cabrollero wont Insldo to deliberately stab
Mrs. Sllva and her brdlher to death. Joao
Chavez J1 Chavez was sent ahead to spy out
the situation at the Sllva home before Sllva
and Cabrellero went there. Chavez came
back and reported that Mrs. Sllva had com
pany , and that he had reconsidered and
would not bo a party to killing a woman
who had been a friend to him. Then the
plan was altered to kill young Sandoval ,
anyhow , and for Sllva to force- his wife to
flee with him to his mountain refuge. That
plan suited Policeman Chavez. Trugello
was sent to tell Sandoval that ho was wanted
at the homo of a sick friend In another
part ot Las Vegas. The young man responded
to the call. Just as ho was hurriedly pass
ing along a narrow , dark street lined with
ono-story tulnbo houses , Sllva leaped from a
dark retreat and stabbed him. Sandoval ut
tered a shriek and Jose. Chavez y Chavez
pounded the youth upon the head with a re
volver until the nkull was fractured. All
the party fled but Sllva and Cabrellcro , who
carried the body to a cesspool near 'by , where
It was thrown among the filth.
An hour later Sllva went alone to his wife
and by cajolery and protestations of his love
Induced her to set out at once for the moun
tains. What took place as the bandit hus
band and wlfo traveled on their horses along
the trail tip the Raton mountains that winter
night will never bo known , except that when
Sllva appeared to his half-dozen marauding
followers the next day ho said ho had fin
ished the job and there would be no more
"squealing down In Las Vegas. "
The sheriffs of Santa Fo and San Miguel
counties wcro In possession of sufllclont facts
by March , 1S93 , to. arrest twelve members of
the Sllva gong. There ) were warrants for
six more , but before they could bo served
the men had fled. The bodies of Francisco
Savono and Ramon Alvarado wore found 1n
April , 1S9.1 , on the road from Las Vegas to
Raton. Iloth had been allot and stabbed to
death , and It has since been supposed they
were killed because they know too much
about the murders and robberies of the
Sllva gang In the early days.

Land Commissioner Hermann Is now at
work on a special report to the secretary of
the Interior , recommending that a forest re
serve bo made out of the petrified forest of
Arizona. Recent reports received by the
'Interior department about the condition of
this forest , says a Washington roeolal. Indi
cate that It is rapidly being used up for
commercial purposes , and. unless the govern
ment steps In to stop the despoilment , the
whole forest , which is one of the greatest
natural curiosities In the world , will dis
appear. There Is now building in Denver a
hotel , all fjo walls of which arc to be faced
with the Elllclfled wood taken from the
forest , nnd all the tables for the hotel are
also to be made of it. At this rate of con
sumption It would not bo long boAro : all the
petrified wood would bo used up. Commis
sioner Hermann thinks that there Is Im
mediate necessity for action on the part of
the department. In his opinion the best
way In which the forest can bo preserved Is
to make It a forest reserve.
The forest Is located aear Holbrcok , In
Apache county , Ariz. Tiio largest and finest
specimens of Elllclfled wood In the world are
taken from It. Whole -trunks of trceo and
stumps with portions of the roots are found
there , converted Into stone as dcnso and
hard as the finest agate. Every cell and
every fiber of the former wood \n \ preserved
In stctie. A forest of trees cppears to have
been entombed in the rocks and to have been
preserved by a slow proces.3 of replacement
by alllca. from solutions permeating the bed.
Subsequently the surrounding sediments wore
washed away , but the enduring fossils of the
cree.3 remained.
Tens upon tctisot , rpeclmcns have been
taken away by collectors and dealers. A
company has been formed In South Dakota
for cutting and polishing t'.ic stone for archi
tectural and decorative work. Sections ot
these trees , four feet In diameter and largo
enough for the tcps or tables , have been cut
and polished. Many specimens wcro shown
at the Paris exposition , where they wcro
greatly admired for the perfect preservation
of every detail of structure of the wood ,
for the very high polish end for the ex-
qulalto Interblendlng of colors In the mass ,
duo to the presence of various oxides In the
original filllcifylng solutions. No other coun
try In the world. It la claimed , can send
to the lapidary such magnificent raw ma
terial of this nature as the petrified forests
of Arizona afford. Not even the imperial
works at Elcatorltiuourg , in Russia , with
their wealth of kalkansto jasper , massive
malachite and other superb ornamental
clones , can rival the beauty of t'ao agatlzed
wood of Arizona.
Commissioner Hermann Is confident that
Secretary Illlss will agree with him , whrn
the fuels are brought to his attention , of the
wisdom of making eomo provision to protect
this wonderful curiosity from despoilment.

President Draper of Providence says that
whllo t'bo two minor leagues cannot draft
c-ach olher's players. It Is possible for the
Nallonal league to draft a player from one

before accepting him.
There waa Home discussion as to the drafting -

NEW YORK , Jan. 2l.-Speclal.-IIenry ( )
Clews , head of the banking house of Henry
Clews & Co. , writes ot the situation on
Wnll street :
During the earlier nart of the last week
there was considerable realizing of profits
on the Stock exchange , with some consequent
quent fall In prices , the Introduction of the
Cuban , question Into the -house of represen
tatives and the stir raised by the Teller
resolution having helped this tendency.
During the later days , however , these In-
lluences lost much of tholr force and the
market showed some Improvement ; but It
seems likely that there may be same reser
vation of buying until a vote Is reached
on the house proposal to recognize the bel
ligerency o the Cubans. In the general
situation of the stock market there is llttlo
change. All the good factors connected
with the railroads continue and the pros
pects of a year of extraordinary freight
business receive confirmation from current
experience. The aspects of domestic : trade
are producing largo expectations for the
spring business ; and itlthougn some Inter
ruption to Industry may arise from the at
tempts In New Kngkmil to adjust wages ta
the still downward tendency of prices , that
Is regarded ns the chief condition needful
to a return to normal manuni-turers' profits
and therefore la viewed as wholesome In Its
ultimate effects. S'-lll , at the moment , there
is no really new bull tiictorcalculated toglvo
any Important stimulus tj buying , and the
market Is therefore neutral and waiting for
"something to turn up. "
The January reinvestment demand has
centered so largely upon railroad bonds that
those Investments have risen to virtually
unapproachable prices , with the consequence
quence of diverting buying lo the lower
grade of mortgagi's and causing more de
mand for tlrst-cl iss dividend-paying stocks.
Those effects of the investment demand
have not yet worked out Ihelr results upon
the speculative securities , but remain as an
umllbcjuntcd factor to aid in Homo now
combination of circumstances helpful to an
upward movement In the stork market.
Our current relations with the foreign In
vestment centers present features of un
usual Interost. I have recently called al-
tPiitlon to the cessation of the return of our
Investments from Europe , which reached
large dimensions during the last half of
1897. Now , this current seems to have
taken the opposite direction. During last
week , probably not le.s than 50.WW shares
of sloc-k wore sent to London , Amsterdam
und Berlin : and within the last week some
scattering buying orders have been received
whllo there has been no evidence of any
selling. Had It njt been for the offer-la of

No ono can gainsay the fact that the cast

about the movement of grain for export
from southern Instead of from eastern ports.
Statistics prepared in Chicago last week
show the Increase in the grain shipments
from southern points , nnd again call atten
tion to the largo volume of business traffic
enjoyed by the north and south lines because -
cause of the failure of the east and west
lines to equalize the 'grain rates.

Convention of Minor * nml Operator *
Itpfuii'N ti Coiinlilrr I'orinor Vuto.
CHICAGO. Jan. 21. At today's session of
the Interstate bituminous coal operators and
miners the reconsideration of the vote which
defeated the mine run proposition last week
was taken up. After a short discussion
the roll ot titates was called nnd the proposi
tion was again defeated ayes 28 ; nays 8.
The operators of Indiana and Ohio voted
In the negative. The question of when an
advance or change ot system should bo
Inaugurated was raised by the Indiana oper
ators. They asserted that certain districts
ot Illinois nro working under a contract
until Slay 1 and were now practically holdIng -
Ing up the convention In an effort to force
the operators ot other states upcu a mlno
run basis or a strike. It they would not
recede from this position the other states
inlsht ns well leave the > convention now as
any other time. If the Illinois dele-Rates
would agree to a double standard < a settle
ment could cosily bo made.
A motion wus made by the Ohio miners
that whatever advance was granted should
take effect en January n. This led to
another lengthy discussion -between .the Ohio
and Illinois operators on the methods cm-
ployed In disposing of tholr output.
President lUatchford declared that It was
out of the question to reach u settlement
based on May 1 prices. The miners had too
often tasted the sweets of settlements on
that date. The first ot the year was the
proper time. If miners of a certain district
were under contract until May 1 that could
easily bo arranged. He again susscsted
the double standard plan to lake effect Jan
uary 1C as the best way cf satisfying 'ill
parties. As the Indiana and Ohio operators
alone bad voted against the mlno run plan
at today's session he suggested tlvt the
operators of these two states confer and endeavor -
deavor to formulaic something which could
meet their approval. The miners would
also meet with the same object In view.
This plui was approved by the convention
and a recess was taken.
At the afternoon session , which was de
layed until 4 o'clo.-k awaiting the result ot
the miners' mooting , the motion pending
that any advance granted should lake effect
January 17 , was tabled.
The operators , who had likewise been In
secret session , then ofTorud a resolution ,
passed at a conference of Ohio. Indiana and
Illinois operators , established a dnuMo
standard between Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Indiana and Illinois , 'the ' main feature of
which was a one and one-quarter Inch srroon
for the PitlsbnrK-Ohlo district on n baMn for
Iho run of mlno price , Iho differential * to
bo decided upon by the miners and operators
of each state.
President llatchford declared that the
miners wanted uniformity and that If the
operators had iiolhlng boiler lo offer It wan
time the convention came to a clone. "We
came hero , " ho concluded , "to give nothlug
awny , but to demand bctlor prices and bot-
ler conditions. " He movol the previous ques
tion , thus cutting off further debate. The
resolution was then lest , the mluor.j voting
nay. President llatchford was then rille.1
upon for Ihe report of the minors' moot Ins-
He replied that the miners simply reaffirmed
their demands for Hie mine run system.
The minors were- called upon lo offer tholr
scale. President llatchford replied by readIng -
Ing the following : "The miners demand is
for 10 cents advance on scrcone.1 and a rela
tive price for run of mine. " Ho then offered
Iho following :
Ilesolvod , That we > favor Iho mining of
scroi'iied nnd unsorpr-ned coal In all the
Holds of Ihe. oonipptltlvo districts for the
coming year , except Illinois , and Unit Iho
mining prices be ndlusttvl by this conven
tion giving all districts In the comp < -tlng
dislrlcls fair competing prices.
As Ihls resolution wza about to bo put
Operator Itobblas got the floor and remarked
that as the atmosphere seemed to be some
what cloarcr ho moved that the whole matter
bo referred back to the scale committee with
instructions to report tomorrow morning-
This motion was carried unanlmous'y. and
the convention adjourned until toxorrow

BOSTON , Jan. 21. Tha second week of
the bis cotton mill strike opened at the
principal centers with both sides apparently
as determined to hold out as at the In
auguration ot the contest. No attempt
was made to open tlio gates of the big cor

fcrd the business men appear lo bo moro
anxious regarding Iho fulure than either

Many operatives are leaving to seek employ

As the evidence of Representative John
C. Otis and of Colonel Thomas C. Canyjoll

here , but .Mr. OU.s will likely bo the next
witness at Columbus.
At Columbus lait week ncvcral v/ltnesics

Allen O. Meyers , w. , was the * flrst
witness today In the legislative briber
erInvestigation. . Ho was at the
Great Southern hotel In Columbus January
7. where Mr. Kurtz nnd olhers opposlnu
Senator Hanna were then stopping. HU
son , Allen 0. Myers , Jr. , clerk at the ( Jib-

copies of stenographic reports of Boyco'a
talks from Clncltinoil over Iho telephone
with the Hanna headquarters In Columbus.
As the matter pertained to thu republicans
he turned all over to Kurtz and Introduced
his son to him. Kurtz told Myers tlut Hol-
lenbecW would go to Clncliincil with money.
Myers dttallod the shadowing of Hc-llen-
bcck from Columbus to Cincinnati and back ,
also the carriage drives of lioyco about Co

* { IN this story Mr. Haggard makes a new demon4i *
sj ? e o I stration of his wonderful power in the field of
* { f pure romance. He once more boldly lifts the
* curtain that hides the fate of nations dead and buried * jf
i in the ages of which no record remains , except in the $
i'i silent ruins of their cities. ?
ji { * Zimboe , an inland trading city that flourished ini i
$ $ the heart of Africa 3,000 years ago , and peopled by f
7 $ the Phoenicians , is the scene of the story. To this ? J ?
? ? city comes Aziel , a grandson of King Solomon , * *
r * accompanied by Isaachar , a priest of Israel , and Mctem , "if
; J * a Phoenician trader , who brings a caravan of merT T
if ? chandise.
iji In Elissa , daughter of Sakon , King of Zimfcoe , i
iji the prince meets his fate. King Ithobal , lord of many ifc
{ legions of savage warriors , is already a suitor for her vj
? T hand. He sues in true barbarian fashion , seeks to "M ?
* " carry her off by force , and is foiled in the attempt by
* y Prince Aziel. The story unfolds itself around the feud
3k between the Prince of Israel and the savage King Itho- #
i'.t bal. Elissa has already given her heart to Azizl , and i'i
ift loaths the barbarian monarch. Isaachar , the priest , is i {
fe determined that no prince of the house of David shall T { ?
T { ? v/ed a heathen maiden , whose people worship Baal.
W * As a result of his intrigues , Elissa is elected the high * f
priestess of Baal. T { ?
This fixes an impassable religious gulf between i
her and A/iel. ; Their passionate love seeks to surii
RA mount all barriers. Meantime Ithobal draws his huge > &
if army of savages around the fated city , and demanding $ J ?
T& ElissH in marriage , prepares to destroy it if he is re- ? *
fused. How Elissa violates her oath as high priestess ; f
H and prepares to fly with Aziel ; how they are both dis-
i'i covered and threatened with death by the priests of J
$ p Baal ; how , to save each other , she , by her right as the a i
vjr high priestess of Baal , names him her husband , while $
Sjr he renounces his faith and offers incense to Baal ; how v
$ ? Ithobal's horde of savages storms the walls of the city ,
3 and both Aziel and Elis > a fall into his power ; and * ff
. how , at last , Aziel escapes with his life by Elissa's ? j |
l feigned submission to Ithoba' , she , in turn , escaping
Ithobal by killing hersslf , is all told in IVIr. Haggard's
ifj { : most fascinating manner. $
? Jr The awful ceremonies in the temple of Baal , the ? { ?
$ < weird rites in the sacred groves of Zimboe , and the Sfc
* jif barbarous battle scenes of that far-off time , avz "
