Cleveland Did Not Observe Home
Rule in Territory.
HIS JUDGES WERE CARPET BA66ERS.
Editor of The Citizen.
In last night's issue you say that
Mr. O. Cleveland Is the only president
who has "lived up to platform pledges
in appointing citizens of this territory
to the federal offices." 1 ills statement
Is undoubtedly provoked by the recent
appointment of Mr. Smith of Michi
gan to a judgeship In New Mexico, but
seems to Indicate some lapse of mem
ory on your part.
Let us recall what Mr. Clevelan did
as to Judicial appointments In New
Mexico during his two terms.
When he first became president in
1885, there were three judicial dis
tricts In New Mexico. In the First
-district, Samuel n. Axtell was judge,
and Mr. O. Cleveland forced him to re.
sign to avoid threatened summary and
unjustifiable removal. In his place
the president appointed William A.
Vincent, a bone fide resident of the
territory, but In a few months, realiz
ing his mistake In having appointed
a New Mexican, he arbitrarily and
wrongfully threw Vincent out, and ap
pointed a man from Indiana.
For the Second district, lie appoint
ed a man from Missouri, who was be-
coming too active and prominent in
public affairs lo please a democratic
senator, who thought his contemplated
llfegrip on a rent in the upper branch
of congress was possibly endangered.
For the Third district, there was ap
pointed an aide man from Arkansas, a
personal friend of the attorney gen
eral, whose ability was only surpassed
ty the bad reputation which he soon
acquired anions the people of the Me
During this administration, an addi
tional district was created, and the
president appointed a good old man
from Texas, than whom no better or
more honest man ever held office in
This Is not a very good record of ap
pointments of lesidents of New Mexi
co. In his second term he certainly did
much better on the residence qualifica
tions. Whether he made a good court
or not can well be left to you, Mr. Ed
itor, who had some personal experi
ence with It. It never should be for
gotten that Its action toward you was
of the most highhanded, lawless and
Under this administration we had
one judge from Virginia, and four from
the territory. The result might well
make many of us doubtful of the poli
cy of appointing our own people to
judicial office, were it not for our be
lief that no other president could make
such bad selections.

thing of the west, and has but little or
no regard for bnything west of Man

as though by an ax. The largest piece
of the big drive wheel found Is about
two feet square and It was in the yard
about seventy -five feet south of the
