From The Santa Fe New Mexican:
May 12, 1914: Lordsburg — The other night, some of the natives at the 85 camp had a supply of liquor and were celebrating the coming of the Fifth of May. Some of them got quarrelsome, and Estanislao Loera took a shot at Constancio Terrazas, hitting him between the brows. The county physician operated on him, removing the bullet and broken bones, finding the brain practically uninjured. After the operation, Terrazas got up, walked out to a buggy and rode to his home in the 85 camp. The doctor thinks that Terrazas will recover. Loera has remained in jail, awaiting the final result of his shooting, for if Terrazas recovers it will be a case of assault, while if he dies it will be a case of murder.
