city treasury at the close of October, was
completed yesterday. The report dis
closes the fact that the committee on

of $16.68, with which small amount, to
which may be added a portion of the
county road fund. It will have to take
care of the street of the city until the

that there are yet Ave months of the fiscal

dressed meats. This Iowa banker went to
Chicago to get hi money. It Is known (that
the big packing Industries have, borrowed
vast sums of money and country bankers
hold the paper. This Iowa banker wanted
his money back and went to Chicago after
it. He didn't get It, but learned that the
packing house concerns will Immediately
hammer the price of live stock down froVu
60- cents to $1 a hundred. This will stop
live stock coming to market and will give
them the control of the dressed beef market
until such a time ns they can get rid of
the stock of dressed meats that they have
on habd and for which they paid a high
price. When this la done they will have
money with which to pay off their loans.

Former Nebraskan May Lose Federal
Job ia New Mexico.
Major of Hough Hldera la "aid to Be
Counting; on Friendship of
President to See Him
Safely Through..
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17. (Special. Tele
gram.) An old NehrasKan and Rotigh
Rider, Major W H. II. Llewellyn, United
States attorney for New Mexico, is under
fire and in grave danger of losing his place,
because of charges of Incompetency and
discourtesy filed agalnsthim.
Major Llewellyn has been 1'nlted States
attorney for six years, and lias been a
resident of New Mexico since his removal
from Nebraska. There have recently come
before his office some Important land cases
In which the Department of Justice and
the Interior department ore greatly Inter
ested. Major Llewellyn has had a clash
with Special Agents of the two depart
ments and Is not working in harmony with
them, it Is alleged. Then, too, there Is
bitter factionalism In the territory and one
of the factions Is hard after the former
Rough Rider, making all sorts of charges
against him. Hla accusers especially al
lege Incompetency and Incivility.
The White House haa started an Investi
gation, which, so far, does not tend to hurt
Major1 Llewellyn, but the Departments of
Justice and Interior are also carrying on
an Investigation, anii the president, who
has been a warm ami tdmlrlng friend of
Major Llewellyn, Is In 4oep quandary as
to what he should do finer the circum
stances. Llewellyn recognizes the seriousness of
the case, but will not fcdmi. he Is In danger,
believing the "Colonel," us the president
la known to the Rough Mders, will pull
him through. Should tbj worst come to
the worst, there ia a L-.iundary commission
to be appointed between New and Old
Mexico, and Llewellyn, who knows every
foot of the territory. It Is thought, could
have a place on the commission for the
asking. At present the major of tho Rough
Hitlers Is standing pat.
