Bloody Tragedy in New Mexico
ALBUQUERQUE, N. M., October 13.— A special from Grant, N. M., says: A deplorable shooting scrape took place today, which ended the existence of two of the participants. The trouble grew out of the ownership of a cow, which was claimed by Alcade Pioro, a Mexican, and also Tom Wright, two cowboys. The dispute resulted in both reaching for their arms. The Mexican being the quickest, put a bullet through Wright, killing him instantly, whereupon a young man named Bell, who worked for Wright, shot and killed Pioro.
