What lire you going td do wit li tli- s-1 n i i 1 child
the mentally deficient child?
Will you take the. troubl to give him the special
training that lie needs, or will yen allow litui to shift
lor himself? Will you by special i ffort help him to be
come a useful and respected citizen, or will joii ullow
liim to bo rldicu.cd hy his playmates ami, through ills
couraReinent, becomes a burden to society, either uh a
worthless ne'er-do-well or us an outright criminal?
This is a serious prohlem. It la a hopeful sign that
feign-minded men and women are attempting to solve it.
For several years Huston has been paying special atten
tion to the education of deficient children. New York
is beginning to do this and other cities are considering
The investigation In New York shows that from l
to 2 per cent of the chi.dreu in the public schools are
menially deficient. There are thus In New York alone
from 5.000 to 10,000 children that are handicapped by
our present methods of teaching and that need the care
ot specially trained teachers.
The causes of this mental deficiency are numerous.
It may be hereditary; it may be Improper food; or phy
sical defects, tobacco, liquor, tea and coffee. There are
a great many causes, but It Is not impossible to remove
them by the right kind of training.
Wiiat are you going to do with the stupid child?
As our schools are now conducted, he is always at the
tag end of his classes. He retards the progress of his
classmates and annoys hla teachers. He is differeit from
his fellows. He can't keep up and he Is dropped from
dass to class until he loses hope and gradually drifts
into the life of the truant or the criminal.
false: and foolish
At the good roads convention in Las Vegas, C. J.
Gavin on Wednesday morning, nt the opera house, said
"that the most valuable thing we have in New Mexico
is scenery." in that statement Mr. Gavin got off a good
deal more gush than gumption. In fact the statement
besides being untrue escapes by les-s than a hair's
tircadto from being silly.
Such assertion going abroad, would not have much
influence in bringing to New Mexico homcseekcrs,
whether they be health seekers or farmers, traders,
stockmen or miners. Of course, our scenery is good it)
its way and good roads are an imperative necessity; not
that a few tourists may thus be able to see the scenery,
but for tho development of our great and growing in
dustries. Our climate is more valuable to the health seeker
than would be all the scenery of the world, even though
it could be crowded Into the space encompi; sed by New
Mexico's boundaries. Our stock industry, our wool, our
agricultural advantages, our mines, our opportunities
for trade and commerce, our possibilities for manufac
turing, our surface and underflow supplies of water
almost every thing that New Mexico i.os.-esst is of
more value than the scenery; and it is to be regretted
that such wild and worthless statements, as the one
here criticized, should be made In public and to the de
triment of the territory.
"The New Mexican hopes that its esteemed con
temporary, the Albuquerque Citizen, is getting paid at
least fifty cents per line for publishing certain com
munications concerning the casese of the removed coun
ty officials of Bernalillo county. Otherwise sensible peo
ple cannot discern any good reason for the publication
of this stuff."
The Citizen returns Its compliments and hopes
that the same reason of remuneration accounts for the
daily declaration by Its esteemed contemporary at San
ta Fe, that the cause of joint statehood Is thrice dead,
plucked up by the roots, while In the self same Issues
the corpse is unmercifully pummeled as are also the
weeping mourners around the bier. Otherwise sensible
people cannot seen any good reason for fighting the
The people of Silverton, Colo., are rejoicing that
the Animas Power company is preparing to send its
power, or electric "Juice," to their town and county
from the plant at Iiockwood. This writer does not know
the distance from Rockwood to Silverton and other parts
or the same county, but the national government is
authority for the statement that electric power can be
delivered through a wire 2O0 miles from the plant where
it is generated. This being the case the Albuquerque
Electric Light & Power company could distribute both
light and power through a section of country surround
ing Albuquerque, having a diameter of 4u0 miles.
James J. Hiil may be very fine? a manager of o
big railway ;steii, bu either he is unable to take a
broad view of general p'lnci.!es, or iie permits his 'u
terests to blunt his mental acuteness. The other day he
attempted to conv'n.-o a meeting of Minesola farmer
that the prevention by the government, of discrimina
tion, excessive charges, renuM, and tne like, which he
called "government control ot rallrovl la'.es," would
prove detrimental to the firmer. of the land because
It would result iu an Increase of freight charges. He nl
so spoke of the Panama canal as a plaything which this
government cou.d afforl, but which practically would
be of little or no value.
Any party of congressmen traveling under the guid
ance of Frank M. Mprphy, would have precious little op
portunity to find out the sentiment of the people of
either New Mexico or Arizona on the question ofjfctate
hood. He is the gentleman who in speaking at Phoenix,
took the position that the joint statehood bill must be
killed In congress and never be permitted to reach the
people of Arizona. A congressional committee under
his guidance would come as near ascertaining the true
sentiments of the people of the two territories, as Cur
tis or Willets came In ascertaining the true condition
of affairs In New Mexico.
IRY OF IKE HEART FOR
KNOWLLDCE OF HEREAFTER
By E;htl Maude CcUon
If I only knew, ir I only knew
Whether for Iter the skies are blue;
Whether for her the wind blows clear
In the same sweet manner that pleased her
Whether for her the stars shine bright.
The stars that she smiieil at every night;
If the old fond .stories ate false or true
If 1 only knew, if 1 only knew!
If 1 only knew, if I only knew
If ready for passing her sweet soul grew
In an instant s space or was drawn away.
Silently, steadily, day by day,
loosening ever the bonds of sense,
Yielding the Here for the unknown Hence,
Till it sdpped with a smile the Strange Gates
If I only knew, if I only knew!
If I only knew, if I only knew:
Ihar, as I wake and think of you,
Hungry and sick for your vanished grace.
Whether you sometimes recall my face,
Stretching the hands that, once clasped my own,
Swelling the heart that was mine alone,
And even in heaven your love renew
If I only knew. If I only knew:
If I only knew, If I only knew!
If I had but the faintest, slightest clew
To the mystery laid with your form away,
Yet hauntingly close to my soul to stay.
To the wonderful region that lies between
The life I knew and the Iind Unseen,
That shuts from my vision your larger view
If I only knew, if I only knew:
ABOUT OVERSIGHT FOR
.CHILDREN OF THE REHUBLIC
Mrs. Jno. A. Login
The Roswell record says: "We have at last discov
ered two things on which the daily papers of Albuquerque
agree that the Territorial fair was a success, and that
joint statehood sentiment is growing." Surely if the Rec
ord had been a good searcher it could have discovered
numerous other points of agreement, such as oppo
sition to linking the city government to immorality; that
Albuquerque is the best town in the southwest and has
the brightest prospects, that Curtis and Willotts were
champion members of the Ananias club, that the Duke
City presents exceptionally fine Inducements in every
line of enterprise, and much more of the same effect.
At a session of the National Educational associa
tion recently held at Asbury park, N. .1., some valuable
suggestions were made on the subject of education of j
children and child lalor. For the first time attention has
been called to the question of the "immigrant child,"
the statemen being made that "earful examination of
the statistics of the bureau of immigration shows
first; that no census of children of .school age among
the arriving immigrants is taken; second, that thou
sands of immigrant children ot school age never enter
our schools, and third, that about 9 per cent of Immi
grant arrivals are of school age. That there has never
Ik en any co-ordination between the immigration and the
school authorities Is a government blunder which needs
Thus it would seem that the United Slates are ac
cessory in allowing foreigners to carry out , In this
country, the custom of the old world of making every
member of the family contribute to the support of it,
no matter how many of them are infants.
Statistics will prove that child labor was first intro
duced through the employment of foreigners. Among
some nationalities the multiplication of children Is for
the purpose of Increasing the productive resources of
the parents, the fathers generally anticipating freedom
from work through their children, who are forced to
labor before they have reached their teens. Many immi
grant's who have large families come to this country be
cause of the opportunities to place their children in ser
vice that Is more remunerative than In Europe.
Not satisfied with the advancement in their own
wages, they put their babies to work, sometimes at al
most as good wages as they received themselves on the
other side of the Atlantic, without regard to the effect
on the development of the children. It Is the duty of
those in authority to atop the criminal destruction of
young iives. The future welfare of the nation depends
upon the generations that are to succeed each other.
In almost all communities the public schools have
well-equipped industrial departments where boys and
girls have far better opportunities than they can possi
dy have in their own homes to learn the useful arts.
One has only to visit tho public schools and see the chil
dren at work to realize that our system of education is
admirable if the parents are made to conform to the
law in the matter of sending their children to school un
til they have reached the age of fourteen years. After
that time, they can enter upon almost any vocation with
confidence in their ability to succeed.
No other country has so many provisions, of both
public and private character, for the education and
training of their youths as has the United States. We
have only to see to it that they are not deprived of the
benefits of these provisions through the avaricious
spirit of carelessness or parents or guardians.
It has been estimated that fourteen years it not too
much to allow for the development and necessary educa
tion of both boys and girls to fit them for the grave re
sponsibility of life and usefullness in our great repub
lic. It would Beent that this Is about right; none too
much to Insure a noble, intelligent race.
There are statutes on compulsory education, but
they are of little use if they are not enforced and
parents compelled to send their children to school and
give them their freedom after school hours for recrea
tion and exercise necessary for the unfolding of their
mental and physical powers.
Immigrants should especially be under the scrutiny
of officials and made to take proper care of their chil
dren, and If they are found unable to do so the children
should be taken away from them anil placed in institu
tions which are provided for such children. In Innumer
able cases It has been found that brutal men lead lives
of idleness and debauch, relying upon their children and
their wives for the gratification of their vicious appe
tites and support. Such men should be arrested ami
made to provide for their families. Otherwise these In
fants in tin; eyes of the law become dwarfs mentally and

SEVERE CRITICISM IS
THE TALK TODAY
On the Fair Report iubmitted
to Executive Committee
by Secretary Sellers.

gether "for ti e purpose of hearing a
report from the secretary."
President (ireer, much to the regret
of Secretary Sillers and the commit
tee, was not present. He had left lor
the south on the Hurley special, and
rumor has ii "ill visit the ranches of
the Victorio I. and & Cattle company
before returning to the city.
However, in the absence of the
president. Vice l'resident Arnot called
the meeting to order, and then follow
ed the reading by the secretary of a
mass of figures, showing the receipts
and expenditures of the late fair, and
they proved eye-opeuers to the com
mittee, especially as to the expendit
ures, for it had been contended ail
along that the expenses were being
materially cut in all directions it
was an economical fair, and with fair
weather and a large attendance
(which both materialized) the fair
would be a success financially and
the deficit of last year wiped out.
Things are now reversed all ex
pectations of a financial success van

submitted by Secretary Sellers, and
the talk of the town today la not
about Tom Hubbell in jail, or what
Judge Abbott is going to do with
Frank Hubhell, but how ,ong the peo
ple of Albuquerque, who are heavy
contributors to the annual fairs, will
stand unnecessary appropriations and
extravagance In the manipulation of
the funds from subscriptions, gate re
ceipts, concessions and privileges.
They say figures do not lie, and
those presented last night show the
late fair in the deficit column over
$1,300, and this, mind you, after some
thing over $l,loo are yet to be col
lected front subscriptions. This deficit
of over $1. :!', added to the deficit of
over $2,fi()n from tiie fair of Wot, says
Secretary Sellers, makes a total de
ficit of about $l.i")o.
After the-e startling figures had been
read, the secretary read the list and
amounts f'oni privileges, and as they
did not present anything from saloon,
lemonade and lunch the question was
asked who secured these privi.eges.

The Silver City Indi pendent says that the twenty
fifth Territorial fair, held at Albuquerque last week was
a success in every particular. The management had
the details of the varied program nicelv systemied and
everything passed off In the very best possible manner.
Large crowds were in a'tendance from all over the ter

well as from an amusement point of view.
