Attempt to Resist Command for
Surrender Results in Death of
Alleged Horse Thief.
The. opponents of the republican
party in New Mexico have united In
an effort to disrupt that ornaiitzutlon
by appealiiiit to sometliiiiK tUul. they
think, may divert the public mind for
Ihe moment from the record of the
democratic party and veil the sinis
ter lace of socialism.
In this attempt they have also fused
Willi those dismuntled wuuld-bu poli
ticians, who have hitherto claimed ul
leglance to the republican party.
As proof of this unholy ulliance
read the manifesto of the Ilanna,
Massie republicans of Santa Fc coun
ty, the democratic eentr.-il committee
manifesto and t lie Appeal to Keuson,
issued by the socialista and you will
find them all the same.
ft is a well planned attempt to car
ry Die new ftate and the constitu
tional convention against the repub
lican party in t lie hupp that the Peo
ple will be fouled by the loud noise
und hoodvvtnked into a belief in the
honesty of purpose of these polltieul
shysters, whose only Interest in the
people is to catch their votes.
Behind it all Is the sama old ang
who bankrupted the territory in the
democratic days und who have put
in years trying; to make tlie people
forget it, who have never paused at
the rape of the ballot box, or any
unfair means to sail their selfish
ends. Even the saint'.y Tribune Citi
zen, the official organ of this precious
tiiinii, has shown its tin willingness to
abide the people's choice and has aid
ed and abetted those that by chican
ery and trickery would override the
people's will. Thus, to betiln WlUl,
we trace this effort to a bad source.
liven things that are really pood
In ,'ippearancji should be examined
Into before tasting, for the question
put by the (jreat Master, "Do men
gather rapes from thorns, or flus
from thistles?" applies with eipial
force at this time as In days of old,
and It is still true that "A corrupt
tree brlnscth forth corrupt fruit."
Hut. what is it that these suddenly
converted, sclf-c onstltutcd champions
of the people claim to want? I
The initiative, the referendum and
the recall. The Initiative: that is, that
certain per cent of the voters may
initiate or petition for a, certain law.
The referendum: that the petition
of a certain per cent of the voters may
cause an election to he held to sub
mit a proposed low to the people, or
to repeal a law already in existence,
And lnHy. t)o recall; to recall a pub
lic officer and caíate lila office. Ill
other words, direct liprislation.
This involves a channe In the form
of ffoveruinent from that of B repub
lic, or representative form of soverri
ment, to a simple, democracy, or di
rect form of government by the peo
ple. It Is a step in the direction of an
prchy, the real goal of the so-cnlled
When the fathers of this republic
were "nsa'soJ in the work of foimhitf
a government for the people, of this
country, this whole question was then
threshed out and u republican, or
representative form of government
was selected. Under that system we
have Rrown to be the iniKhtiest na
tion in the world and our people are
the best Roverned people in alt time.
The great constitution provides that
every statu entering t!i Union shall
be a state with a republican form of
government, uot a democratic, 'nil a
republican government. This scheme
is an entering wedgo to disrupt the
form of government established by
the fathers and to launch an experi
ment In governmental atrairs. I me
it Is being tried in some of the states,
but is nevertheless In the experimen
tal stiiKe. They tell us that It has
worked In Switzerland, but 1 for one
am loath to leave the beaten path of
the fathers, to pattern after the little
mountain country, whose government
probably looks better from here than
at home. It is vvvrmtg In principle and
contrary to our institutions. Wrong
In principle, because II Is the sober
second thought, the delibérate will
of the people, after mature and delib
crate reflection, that Is the safe
trtilde. Not the Impulse of the mo
ment, based on the prejudices or pas
slon. History gives us plenty nt ex
amples. It shows us how France, car
ried away by the frenzy of the mob,
shed the innocent blood ot thousands,
and even forgot vJod and crowned a
harlot as Its goddess or reusun, how
staid old Holland went crtr-ty once
on tubus, and even Massachusetts
once fell lulo the theory of witch
craft und tortured und burned its vic
tims. It wjs to guard analnst this
vevv tendency that the wise fathers
of tfce republic, placed the safeguards
of u representative form of govern
ment with two legislative bodies, an
executive armed with the veto power
and a Judiciary to finally pass upon
and construe the laws. 'lime has
demonstrated their wisdom In tukiug
these wise .precautions. Tho Ameri
can people, like all others, have dem
onstrated the fact thut these precau
tions were necessary. Occasionally
craze runs over the country, thut had
the people the power to act at once,
would become tuw. Free sliver, for
Instame, which would have placed us
at once n a third or fourth rute na

It Is well known that the great
body of luioi me not made by the
legislature, but by Judicial decisions.
Stututes cannot be passed to tit all
cases, but resort must be had to that
great body of the law kuovMi as the
common law. and its half sister, the
principles of equity. Then let us "In
itiate" the courts. Somebody stsrt a

question be decided in a certain way

refer it to the people, "the source of
II power." tor their judgment. This
would be anarchy pure and simple
snd to this point the advocates of
the initiative and lefeteuduui are
Jjist oí all there is the recall, the
worst and most outrageous of all. A
law that makes the officeholder ft
coward who must listen to the voice
of that most fickle of all mistresses
public sentiment. The worst officers
that have served lit all time are those
who have burled their own self re
spect and conscience to follow the dic
tates of public clamor. Had Pon
tius Pilate possessed the moral cour
age to stand by his convictions, the
tragedy of the centuries, would have
been averted, and the Roman's name
would not have been a "hiss and a by
word," down through the ages.
The recall Is an attempt to control
the conscience and the conduct of
our public servants by making them
subservient lo the public caprice. Un
der it no man who has the least In
dependence of spirit, even common
self respect, could hold a public of
Ilce. The great men of the put have
been those who, regardless of public
clamor, have had Ihe couragf to
stand firm for the rlf'ht as God gave
them to see it.
Are We to have officers in New

every change in the breeze of public
sentiment In order to. keep them from
