It is an oldcustom among both
Njiitical parties of the county to
:ot hold county conventions to
omínate candidsites fer county
Hiees until just a few days before
lection time. We hear consider
.'ble complaint of this practice
:id we believe justly so. We
elieve a man offering himself
.'or office should come out before
ho people in time for the peop
le to have a show to say whether
ir not he should be the choice of
:aeir respective parties in the
primary conventions of each pre
cinct. As the procedure of nom
::iating candidates for offic now,
exists, only a few ever liave an
pportunity to say who such can
didates shall be. The people,
hould ignore such practices,
ueet and put out good men for
;llices and then elect tkeui. We
jelieve the iresent system is
".utrhnental to good government. 1
However Peaceful a great Pow
r may be, the possibility of deli
cate and complicated situations
: ; always before it. The United
.tates feels much more comfort
able to-day than it would if there
were not in the Cabinet two men
vf such tested strength, prudence
tnd tact as secretary Tafo and
"íoi'-t. Both believe in peace, in
he advantages of self govern
ment by the weaker peoples, and
.;i reasonableness and kindness
rather than in force or bluster.
What can be done to solve the
Uuban situation in the best way
wo have the satisfaction of know
ing will be done, and it is a stim
ulating thing to the better kind
of patriotism to believe that there
are men in our government whose
handling of so acute a situation
van bo so entii ely trusted. What
Mr. Taft did in the Philipin.es
and what Mr. Root lias dono in
South America are a guaranty
that nothing arbitrary, rash, ot
needless will be attempted 'by us
in Cuba. -ES.

The Cemetery Question Again j y CHILTON
I am glad to see you agitating
The pastor of the Mtthodist
church Is arranging to invito the
New Mexico English Conference
to meet at Clayton, Oct. 1907.
We highly favor his effort. It
. would give Clayton and Union
county a splendid advertisement.
There will be present all the
preachers of this territory visit-
ors from New Yorkt Philadelphia
and Denver, It will also give
the people of the community the
, oppo.tuitty of hearing sOine cf
the best speakers of the country
The conference meets thisyear

the question of a cemetery and I
fully agree with "Citizen" that
a personal ownership is not de
sirable, neither is a society or a
church ownership advisable.
Will you allow me to make a
1. Have the cemetery in the
new city limits, 6ut far enough
not to prevent the city's growth
in that direction; yet not so far
as to make it impossible to walk
V'2. Make it a public institution,
neither a private, nor a society,
nor a sectarian affair. Buy the
ground by a public subscription,
and pkee same into the hands of
a board of Trustees I w-ould
suggest a board of 5 trustees (in
corporated) One to be elected
by the secret societies, one by
the Protestant churches, one by
the Roman Catholic churches,
one appointed by the City Coun
cil, one appointed by the mayor
of the town-Each to ser ve á years
one to be elected each year.
k This board to sell lots and
invest the money. The interest
of this invested money to be used
forever to lccep up the cemetery,
so that if a family should remove

ones will betaken care of perpet
ually If the individual owners
wish to put on extra improve
ments, such as llowers,, trees etc.
they be permitted to do so under
direction of the keeper.
V4. Lay out thi cemetery in
squares and lots.viJave it uniform
method of digging the graves,
and prohibit all fences tr Enclos
ures of lots inside of cemetery
In conclusion1 Ho w r.ah we se

grounds? Place this matter into
the hands of the todies and with
