S '• ' '" LAMA.IR, Ool., wbpt. £8.— Word.lsas ~ received of serifus {rouble between 111 ' towns of Boston and Springfield, Baca County; Since Baca County was made from Las Animas County by the last General Assembly there has boon Stfife between these two towns as to which should have the seat. The act or- Mftlizin^ tho -county provided • thatr Bpririg'ffbld'sn'ould be thecoiirtty seafc,Tirid : at the election held last fall it is alleged that by tho manipulation of the ballots it was mado the permanent county seat. The people of tho town of Boston claim that Springfield has not the $5,000 worth of county property necessary to prevent tho county seat from being moved by a majority vote this fall. The only available building for a county court-house was a hotel building in Boston. A few weeks ago this was sold at a sheriff's sale and was bought by Springfield parties. Saturday night a party loft Springfield for Boston with machinery costing $1,000, intending to move tho building to tho former town and use it as a court-house, thus preventing tho county-scat issue being raised this fall. Rollers' were put under tho building and twenty teams were hitched to it. Inside tbe house were stationed twelve mon with VVinchester rifles. The building was moved about five miles toward Springfield, which ia about twenty-five miles from Boston, when tho people of the latter place discovered the tric'k and immediately organized. All available horses and rifles wcro brought into requisition and pursuit was made. Upon overtaking the party they commanded a halt, which was answered by a volley of shots from the mon in the building. The Boston crowd then fired and a fierce battle raged, which ended in the Springfield party being driven from tbe building. Coal oil was then procured and the floors of the building saturated, after which it was set on fire and entirely consumed. Great excitement prevails, but owing to tbe isolation of tbe towns— Springfield being over fifty miles from Lairsar, which is the nearest railroad station—news is hard to obtain. Several partie^ arrived here from Springfield Wednesday night and departed hurriedly after buying all the cartridges they could find in town. It is reported that several men wora seriously wounded and two killed during the fight, but tho news is not authentic. TRIED TO KILL DIAZ. bt Mnrvelott* LATER NEWS.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Sept. SO.—A prominent railway official who reached San Antonio Thursday morning from tho City of Mexico relates a startling story of an attempt on the life of President Diaz. The story in brief is as follows: During the National celebration on tho 11th iust. an immense crowd of people of all classes surged around the executive palace at night to do homage to Diaz. During tho climax of the festivities, while bands were playing and fireworks wore popping and sizzling the loudest, tho President, accompanied by his personal staff, stepped out on to the front piazza to witness the pyrotechnic display. No sooner had his form appeared on the gallery than a volley of musketery sounded abovo the din of music, fireworks and yells, and bits of brick and timber began to fly around his head. Ho retreated hurriedly, to his room, fol- lowei by his staff. Three bullets whizzed dangerously near him. Forty men are known to have been concerned in the murderous plot, fifteen of whom are now in jail, and the others are fleeing precipitately from the country with the military on their track. The facts have been suppressed in Mexico by Government officers. The reason of the attack is assigned to a variety of causes, the moat important of which is that the President is strongly suspected of coquetting with the clerical party, which is in direct conflict, politically and socially, with the Liberals, to whom Diaz owes his power. Mrs. Diaz is a devout Catholic, and several days ago entertained the Archbishop of Mexico in tho Presidential palace, which is the first occurrence of the kind since the bloody siege of the revolution that ended in victory for tho Liberal party.

Argentina public I.lnblo to Impeachment. NEW YOHK, Sept. 20,—According to advices received hero during the past few days it seems certain Juarea Colrnan, ox-President of tho Argentine Republic, will be impeached on the charge of embezzlement of public moneys while in office: As a result of tho examination into his financial dealings, the total amount of his embezzlement is placed at the startling figure of $43,000,000. Where this large sum has been placed is a mystery, and although the leading bankers and financiers of Buenos Ayres hiivobeon, figuratively speaking, placed upon tho rack, nothing of a satisfactory nature has been developed. It is thought that a goodly portion of his ill-gottan gains are safely held in the United States. In the meantime the ox-President is under lock and key, and, according to the ! public temper, is likely to remain there until be expresses a willingness to disgorge at least a fair proportion of the sum total of his embezzlement. WILL OBEY~THE LAW. THE COltN PALACE. exterior and interior decoration la a great improvement upon the former palaces. About, twenty counties of Northwestern Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska havo exhibits. The States of Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee have splendid showings of their products, which are in striking contrast with those of the Northwest. A description of the palace is given below: It fronts sou Hi on Sixth street and west on Plorce street. Kuch front Is B50 feet in length, and the southwest corner is cut lo a face sixty feet.wide. Th« building Is merely n frame, in- closed with boards, but It has been msvcle tight to turn rain and protect visitors 1n any weather. It has the appearance of u square from the outside, but the interior 1« Jlnlshcd In the form of an octagon. The main wall is forty-two feel high and from it the roof rises In a pyramid, the apex of which —HO feet above lUe ground—is truncated, and, upon which is placed a globn forty-live foot in diameter. This slobe is renlly the base of the central tower, and over it, as another part of the tower, Is placed a framework which forms an immense crown. The crown is supposed to be that ot "King Corn." Its height above tho ground Is 198 feet. Just beneath II, is the globe, every geographical feature being wrought out in the various colors of corn. The sections of corn sawed lengthwise arc nailed on. Thus the oceans are represented as a dark expanse by sections of blue square corn, which, viewed from the street, seem a solid mass. The continents stand out in bright yellow, and tho lakes and oilier prominent features are made distinct. These decorations will suggest somewhat the methods followed in adorning the exterior. The architect has so designed' Ihe building lhat tho towers, turrets, gables and other elevations rising above the walls and projecting outward present, ample and varied fields for the artist's Ingenuity. Corn is the main material, but all the grasses and grains are also used. The interior is decorated with even greater skill. A gallery projects frora tlio walls l.o a distance of twenly-six feet and a height of twenty feet above the ground floor. The diameter of tbe Interior, measuring from lace to face of the gallery, is 110 foot. Eight great pillars sustain the roof, and over this central space are thrown trusses which support tho dome. The whole Interior is decorated with the products of tho soil. A pretty effect is produced by entwining the pillars with great wreaths of evergreens and grains. The veiling is covered with oats, heads down, and millet and flax. Everywhere are desigvis wrought out in these materials. One of the most striking features of the decorations this year Is tho working out of pictures in grains. A frame Is first made and crossed with cloth, upon which the sketch Is madfi in crayon. Tho outlines are then filled in with, suitable materials, and the result is a picture of astonishing effects of color. One of these pictures represents a tally-ho coach party. Tha white horses are represented by hulled millet, the dark horses by flax and turnip soed. Tho tails and manes are made of corn silks, and the harness is made with husks. The various parts of tho coach are made of grains of corn of various colors, tho main body of a dark mahogany color, and the windows of busks. Similar materials are employed to represent the driver and the figures on the top of the coach, every detail being brought out with surprising accuracy. This is one of the simplest of the designs. There are scores of similarly wrought pictures—landscapes, groups, marines, etc. One feature is a cascade.
