"STATEHOOD FDR NEW MEXICO"
Witness for Stateftcocl
When a race Issue arises in any locality it Is n terrible thing, but when
It comes In the wake of a territory Jusi admitted to statehood it Is some
what of a reflection upon the people who have Just been empowered with
The St. Louis Globe-Democrat, a paper published just on the border.
one might say of the North and South, where but a faint line by the way,
divides, comments UDOn the recent racial outbreak In Oklahoma and Its
caustic remarks are well worth the reading.
New Mexico is applying for statehood. New Mexico In her palmiest
days, has never had a scene such as the Globe-Democrat describes. Con
clusions may be drawn from the following:
There 'is a distinct flavor of old wine In a new bottle In the inflamma
tory Dictures from Henrvetta. Okla.. of a town in a state of siege (luring a
"race war." We wish It were possible for some gifted genius of the comic
opera world to put one of these sieges, in one of .these wars, upon the
boards, where, the talents of th composer and the librettist,
supplemented by those of the scenic artists, could make a complete picture.
It is no lack of comedy which makes this Impossible. Comedy abounds
la all such warlike adventures, but alas, so mixed with tragedy that the
situation Is. utterly spoiled for comic opera uses, and It Is needless to say
that, out of such sordid Impulses and motives of human action, no grand
oDera theme could ever be evolved. The not remote processes of time
must surely bring us a drama which will throw upon the stage a fierce
white light In which the feathers and tinsel of the swashbucklers of these
valorous wars will be consumed as by fire.
This Is not saying that the reports sent out to the press from places
where such sieges are reported are not true. They're true, 'tis pity, and
pity 'tis, they're true. It Is In such situations as this, of which the Okla
homa dispatches tell us, that comedy and tragedy are to be found so
strangely mixed. it Is not the present purpose to discuss race problems,
but only "race wars." The race problem of today might easily be proved
to be a logical result of the "race -war" of fifteen years ago, but It is not
worth while to prove It so at a time when the best heart and brain of the
South feel the heavy weight of old mistakes and are rising to the new emer
gencies with an Intelligence and a fortitude to compel our admiration. It
U the fact that the siege of the "race war" is still In evidence which gives a
t)nge of comedy to the news from Oklahoma. These "race war" sieges
are real and terrible things to those who know no better, and that's the
pity of It. Fearful women and children Inside the beleaguered towns spend
nights of terror in dread of the coming of a black army. Every shot
heard on the picket lines, which used to be thrown out after nightfall, would
arry fear and trembling with It both Inside and outside of such lines. For
"While, inside of the lines, only women and children shivered at such sounds,
outside of them black men, women and children alike, cowered In miserable
hovels at every sound which they feared might he the (signal for a white

' The new year dawned today at Carthage with eight blackened, turn
bleeding corpses In the little mining camp, and with half a dozen sorely In
jured miners, -writhing with pain.
The New Year came Into rhe little mining camp bereft of all the simple
pleasures that the day had promised to hold In store for the brawny men
who have tolled ceaselessly far under ground, In order that others might
have fuel and families in the little mining cabins might have bread and
The old year departed at Carthage leaving behind It, sudden and awful
death, suffering and sorrow.
Those of us who live apart from the mining world, who do not know
Its natural hardships and risks, can not begin to realize the feelings of those
who enter the new year mourning for their dead or tearfully praying that
the lives of their Injured ones may yet be spared.
! It is a sad scene at Carthage today, and one on which we do not like
Co dwell. Hut In our rejoicing at the advent of a new year, it will not be
amis to extend smypathy to the stricken town, the, relatives, friends and
companions of the men who met an awful death or suffered terrible injury.
1 1 The Carthago accident was the first of Its kind' in all the mining his
tory of New Mexico. lit would appear that, It was simply one of those ter
rible accidents caused by dynamite, which It seems Impossible at times to
iBut the other miners of New Mexico should regard It In the light of
warning and nothing should be overlooked In an effort to make the many
mines In this territory as safe as modern science can produce.
The miner who works all dap away from the light, burrowing like a
snole in the damp, cold earth, deserves every protection Which can be given
him. The people of Albuquerque join with those of the whole of New
Mexico upon this New Year's day so bright and promising for so many of
vs. In extending heartfelt sympathy for the people of the pretty little mining
camp, where the last day of 1907 will be remembered always as a day of
kdeah and suffering, that none but a miner can fully understand.
The Citizen yesterday published a full and detailed account of the
lining disaster at Carthage, This paper was the only paper .n the south
west to get a correspondent upon the scene within a few hours after the
ecldent took place. The Citizen beat not only the papers of New Mexico
a the story by several hours, but It contained the only complete story of
the accident: not excepting F.l Paso and the papers of Denver. The moral
IS plain If you want to get the news and get It first, read The Citizen. We
s;et the news first.
For several years strenuous efforts
have been made by menvners of the
fraternal Insurance order of the
Modern Woodmen of America, resi
dent In New Mexico, to have this
territory admitted into the Jurisdic
tion of the order.
Kecenlly the mutter was re-open
ed with the head camp officers, and
strong petitions went in from A10U-1
querque, lloswcll, and many other
parts of the territory asking that
the commJtlee "having in charge the
admission of new territory give fav-
orable report on the New Mexico
At the regular meeting or the
committee on new territory at Rock
Island, III., the following uction was
taken regarding this and oiher ap
plications: "We have considered the
tates of New Mexico, Mississippi,
North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas
and the Hiitish possessions lying
north of and contiguous to the Uni
ted States. Your committee is of the
opinion that the entlrn sta!e of Ten
nessee should be admitted to the
jurisdiction without any restrictions
whatever, that the states of Missis
sippi and New Mexico are not admis
sible; that the state or Arkansas is
only in part admissible."
A couple or years ago the appli
cation of New Mexico was before the
head camp at its annual meeting,
and would possibly have passed had
It not been for the gross misrepre
sentation of the delegates from Ari
zona who were present and had the
ears of the committee.
The action of the committee Is In
comprehensible to the members of
the order in New Mexico. Territory
completely surrounding this territory
has been admitted, and the records
of our towns and cities show a lesser
death rate than most others of the
admitted states. There are no di
seases or epidemics peculiar to New
Mexico. There Is much dissatisfac
tion expressed at the action of the
committee on the application and
delegates will be sent to the meeting
of the head camp the coming sum
mer with strong petitions and such a
showing that It Is not believed that
the head camp will refuse the appli
cation again. It seems that adverse
reports have gone In from those who
do not understand conditions and
also that New Mexico has many
enemies to its enjoyment of other
privileges than statehood.
The Tiger is no more In New Mex
ico. He passed away quietly last mirT
nlght. The end, was not witnessed by
as large a crowd as expected. Some
ventured a few dimes on the last
few turns of the wheel, but there
was no big play as had been prop
hesied. Barly In the availing, large crowds
congregated Ifi the largest down

the crowds dwindled away until
when the end came, very few were
there to witness It.

to venture their day's wages in hopes ;
of making a stake sutlicient to buy u .

While It Is a custom among the
gambling fraternity to loan each oth
er money even to the last dollar,
there was a marked number of men
broke last night when loans were
sought by the unfortunate ones who
had staked their last dollar and lost.
There was no commotion when
the hour for closing came and the
manager told the dealers to close
the games. Just as any other night,
the faro box was put away, the lay
