Cardenas surrendered to the com

Civilization of Aboriginal
HAS LONG- PLEADED
TO JOIN STATEHOOD
By Frederic J. Haskin.
Santa Fe N. M., Jan. 24. Youngest
among the states. New Mexico is oldest
among the communities of the union.
It was the center and principal seat of
the highest civilisation of the aborginal
Inhabitants of what is now the United
States, and later it was the administra
tive focus of the earliest European col
onisation in our territory. That it, and
its companion state, Arizona, were the
last divisions of the contiguous conti
nental dominion of the republic, whose
people were admitted to the full meas-;
ure of the privileges and responsibili
ties of Americans, is due, in part, to
the events of the past that make the
story of New Mexico unique among th,
histories of the states.
The Seven Cities of Cibola.
Credulous Spain in the 16th century
accepted as true a story that 800 years
earlier a bishop of Lisbon, fleeing from
tiie Arabs, had escaped to some isl
ands in the west and there had founded
seven cities. The Mexicans, whom Cor
tez overcame, explained the origin of
their race by saying they had issued
from seven caves in the north. The
European myth and the American folk-
! lore tale were compared and it was but
natural that a search should be made
for the Seven Cities of Cibola. Cabeza
de Vaca wandered across the continent
i to Mexico in 1538, told wonderful stories
of the stone cities he had heard of.
The First Explorers.
The vieeroy sent Fray Marcos de
Nlza, a Franciscan friar, on an expedi
tion to investigate. This was the first
party of explorers to enter what is now
New Mexico. They came In sight of a
five-story terraced. Indian village and
hastened back to tell great tales of rich
cities whose waHs 'were bursting with
silver and gold. Under the great Cor
onado, the Spanish In 1639 set out to re,
duce these rich cities, but Coronado
found only the Indian nueblos. He bad.
it Is true, found the evidences of the I
highest state of society exiatine in I
America north of Mexico, but beine

appointed, forty years later, in 1581. I
ploas monks extended their missionary
efforts Into the territory and it wa3jafcoration refused to sell to him. He
given the name "New Mexico," largely
because the people so closely resembled
tae Inhabitants of Mexico proper.
The first considerable colony was
planted In 1 599, and after moving twe
or three times, was permanently estab-
Ushed at Santa FT which is, with the
exception of St Augustine In Florida,
the oldest city In the United States.
Santa F was founded sometime be
tvMn Ittx b.tw1 1SS7 oa the site of a
ruined pueblo and since that time has
been, save for a few years following
the Indian revolution of 1680. the cap
ital and seat of government for the ter
ritory. Barly Civilization.
When ' the Spanish established their
permanent government here, a govern-
ment that was to exercise its authority .
for more than 200 years, John Smith
had not yet sighted the capes of Vir- j

means of artificial irrigation, submit

ment that Is contained in their pueblos
to this day, and possessed of no incon
siderable skill in the mechanical arts.
The people lived in high terraced
houses of many stories, constructed with
a design that comprehended both the
requirements of a rude sense of com
fort and the necessity of defence against
the depredations of the savagje Indians.
The story of these ancient people and
their still more ancient ancestors the
cliff-dwellers, is being worked out bit
by bit by the scholars, and here in New
Mexico is their most fruitful field of
endeavor. It is the oldest community
under the Stars and Stripes.
Uprising of the Pueblos.
The Span's colony In New Mexico
k Pueblos arose, repudiated Christianity,
massacrea tne priests and drove the
white man from the eountry. After a
decade the Spaniard came back again,
not with the sword, but with the per
suasive art of peace, and took up do
minion. For a century and a half he
stayed and ruled. His colony grew
slowly, but his religion took firm hold
and he left upon the people and the
state aa Indelible Impress. There was
more or less trouble with the savage
Indians, but the general status of the
colony was unchanged and not until
the end of Spanish rule In continental
America was approaching did the peo
ple of New Mexico so much as know
that a powerful nation was in the mak

tinent. The Beginning of Statehood.
Napoleon Bonaparte sold Louisiana to
Thomas Jefferson, and as a result of
that sate New Mexico is the 47th star

UP THE EVIDENCE
Chicago. XI11., Jan. 24. Although no
allowance was made for hides in 1909
and during a part of 1910 in figuring
the test cost of beef, the books of
the National Packing company show
tnat in that period the corporation re
ceived from the sale of hides 33,659,
050.67. The sales by months were given by
William E. Weber, general auditor of
the National Packing company, who
began his fourth day on witness stand
in the packers' trial today.
The government contends that by not
allowing credits on hides in .this pe
riod, the packers materially increased
their test cost on beef and were en
abled to raise the price to consumers
without showing an excessive profit on
, Weber admitted that the value of
hides during this period varied from
2 to 4 cents a pound, according to
Weber said the plant of Ruddy
Brothers at Kansas City had been con
tinuously operated from the time of its
purchase by the National Packing com
pany in .1905 until 30 days ago when
it was closed for repairs. The Viles and
Robbins plant at St Joseph was a sub
sidiary of the Omaha Packing company
and had not been in operation for sev
eral years at the time the National
Packing company was organized, he
said. The Northwestern Glue company
was organized by the National Packing
company and had been engaged in the
manufacture of glue for several years,
according to Weber.
"Were the Money Went.
The $2,000,000 charged against the
New York Butchers' Dressed Beef as
sociation was not all for the purchase
of the company, the witness testified.
About half that amount was for devel
opment of the corporation's business.
Before entering the emnlOv of the
j National Packing company, Weber
1 said, he was part owner of the Peoria
Packing company, an independent af
reona in iU3. At tnat time, ne saia.
his company used a test cost of beef
and made a killing charge of 31.75 a
Weber said he believed it would be
impracticable to conduct a dressed beef
business 'without using a test cost
Pine Dealers Fighting Hard.
Kansas City, Mo, Jan. 24. Further
testimony designed to refute the state's
allegation that Yellow Pine Manufac
turers' association fosters a system of
stifling competition and fixing the
current prices on lumber, was Tntro-

acting business -In (Missouri.
W. C. Bnllam a retail lumber dealer
of Omaha, testified that in 1908 when
the suit was brought, he controled six
retail yards in Nebraska and that there
was unrestricted competition among
dealers In yellow pine at that time.
He said he got daily quotations from
traveling representatives of lumber
companies and prices were absolutely
controled by supply and demand. There
were fluctuations in prices from day to
day, he said, and there was no dis
crimination in favor of members of the
Yellow Pine Manufacturers' association.
He said the issuance of a price list by
the association bad no effect upon the
market of pine, but that the price list
was a convenience and benefit to the
wholesaler, retailer, builder and all

Mr. Bullard said the association never

THE LAW OF NEW
MEXICO IS VAGUE
Silver City, N. K, Jan. 24. Judge
Collin Neblett, of the Sixth judicial
district, has had his first case. On
November 11 last. Joe McAUster made
application to the probate clerk for a
saloon license to conduct a saloon in
the town of Hurley, which was refused
by the probate clerk, wno held that the
saloon Is not within the limits of the
town, as the saloon building Is about
a quarter of a mile from its main part
and is distant, according to the testi
mony, 1200 feet from the nearest build
ing and is off the Chino property, that
company owning the land on which
Hurley stands. The Chino company
refused McAllster permission to erect
&. building and open a saloon on Its
property In Hurley, and he leased a
small plot of ground from a homestead
er outside of the Chino holdings, on
which he erected a saloon building, and
the company claims he is not within
the limits of Hurley.
McAllster applied for a mandamus to
compel the clerk to issue the license
and the case was heard before Judge
Neblett, who rendered a decision in fa
vor of McAllster. District attorney
Waddlll, of Deming, represented the
state In the case, and after its con
clusion he left for Deming without in
timating if he would appeal or not
The Chino people contend that McAlls
ter' s saloon building is outside of the
limits of Hurley and it may be that
the company will Insist that the case
be carried up. ,
The law In the case is decidedly vague
