Upon the roll being called, it
was found that several of the
precincts were not represented,
so the convention adjourned till
1 o'cUock, to give the absent pre
cincts an opportunity of being
represented. Upon reconven
ing at I o'clock, all precincts
being represented, the conven
tion immediately got down to
business. A committee on per
manent organization being ap
pointed, recommended that the
temporary officers be made per
manent. This report was unan
imously adopted. The commit

appointed, and returning with
their report, the convention
formed itself into private caucus
and labored continuously until 1
o'clock Thursday morning, when
the body adjourned to meet again
at 9 o'clock the same morning.
Promptly at the hour appoint

Eloquent addresses were de
livered and in this session of the
convention, ' and everything
showed that a spirit of harmo
ny prevailed as never belore wit
nessed in the history of the par
ty in Union county. Everything
done and said in the convention
showed that the democracy of
Union county Is united for only
one purpose, that purpose for
the election of a complete ticket.
We have no doubt that the
ticket placed before the voters
of Union county will meet their
hearty approval and ratification

Comment on Statehood.
We desire to call
attention to certain false
statements made in some of the
Spanish papars In the territory
and otherwise circulated for the
purpose of deceiving our Mexi
can fellow citizens and inducing
their Vote agalns-t statehood.
It has been 'stated, and is
still being persistently stated,
that this act of congress requires
the constitution to deny to our
citizens the right to hold any of
fice of profit of trust, or to sit on
juries, unless they Understand the
English language. This state
ment is unqualifiedly flllsc. The
exact liingtingu of the act of Con
gress ts as follows!
'Ability to read, write and
speak the English lafiguagte suf
ficiently well to conduct the duties
of the office without the aid oí an
interpreter hall he a necessary.
qualification for all state offices."
(tree. 23, 5, of the act.) This
provision relatus to state officers
only to the governor, secretary
of state, state treasures, auditor,
etc. It does not apply to the
sheriff of any county or any other
county or precinct officer. Nor
does it apply to jurors. There
is not a single incumbent of an
office in New Mexico to day who
would be prevented from holding
his office by this provision. We
appeal to pur Mexican fellow
citizens not to be deceived by
these malicious misrepresenta
tions. . '
And we appeal to every citizen
of New Mexico to aid by his vote
in securing this splendid provis
ion for the education of the chil
dren of the state, representation
in congress and full rights of
American citizens for all our

Action was taken toward employ

done. Several fletf names were
