Tliis will be the last issue of
The Clayton Citizen until the
people speaK at the polls, and
. . t 1 I . Si.
we ieei line n is our uuty to say
a few words before the final blow
The question as to whether we
re to haye joint Statehood with
Arizonia is to be voted upon, and
Vim Citizen is strongly in the
belief that every voter in Union
tounty should vote m favor of
Statehood, It means much for
added prosperity to the entire
country. It will give us a pres
tige we can never have as long
as we remain a Territory s
As to the Democratic ticket in
Union county it should be elect
ed from top to bottom, The
ticket is an exceptionally good
one, being made up of men of
ability and sound integrity, and
the Democratic Executive Com
mittee being without a head,
it devolves upon all good Demo
crats to put forth a special effort
to see that the tbket is elected.
The Democratic party should
win, for it is the champion of the
people's light the 'enemy of
corporation greed, fostering of
trusts and the ruthless squander
ing of the people's money.
If Democrats don't stand to
gether and work in harmony,
they can never hope to succeed,
and it is just as much your
duty to stand by your county
nominees as it is State and Na
tional. At Their Old Tricks.
We were in hopes that this
elctiou would be conducted in a
manner different from the last
election that it would be free of
fraud, but in this ,we are mistak
en, for even before election day
the Republicans have commenc
ed their fraudulent practices.
The first thing they did was to
select for the Democrats on the
registration board, a man. that
can neither read nor write, and
almost totally blind. The next
thing they did was to place the
voting boxes in Democratic pre
cincts in the most remote and out
of the way places, faraway from
the bulk of the voting popula
tion. They removed the voting
places from Logan and Cimar
ron to places far away from the
majority of the voters. Tnis
kind of politics is coutemptable
in the extreme, and we trust the
voters will rebuke such nefarious
conduct at the polls Tuesday
What Democracy Stands For.
We copy the following extracts
from the Democratic platform,
adopted nt Santa B'e. September
We, the Democrat! of New
Mexico, in delegate convention
assembled at Santa Fe, this the
12th day, of September, IMG,
again record our long continued
allegiance to the time honored
principles of Democracy ns set
forth in the Democratic National
Platform of 1004, believing as
we heartily do, that they make
for. a better government of, for,
and by all of the people.
We take especial pride in the
fact that our great national party
is justly recognized an the true
and only party of the people, de
voted to a government in the in
terest of the m isses and not the
classes, founded on the JcfTer
sonian doctrina of the vital gov
ernmental truth, "Equal rights
to all; special privileges to mme"
the distinguishing character'
istic of democracyi
"We take further pride in the
fact that, although temporararily
out of control of the affairs and
policy of the national government
and of this Territory so that we
are unable to put into effect our
benifiicent principles for tha
public good, constitute a sti'ong
and courageous minority, recog
nizing the admitted fact that the
stronger the minority the great
er the safety to our govern
ment. "It is with the prof uondtst sat
isfaction and feeling of unusual
pride that we witnessed the
hearty and most unusual wel
come home given by the people
of this country, irrespective of
party, to the "Great Commoner"
and intrepid leader of our party,
William Jennings Bryan. We
look upon him as the embodi
ment of the hope and confidence
that the common people have in
a Democratic form of govern
ment. W e declare our favor of joint
statehood with Arizona, under
the provisions of the enabling
act therefor, known as the Ham
ilton Bill, as it was finally pass
ed by the unanimous vote of
democratic and republican mem
bers of Congress, and we trust
the people of both New Mexico
and Arizona will avail themselves
of the liberal provisions of the
enabling act, to enter the union
of states in the only way Con
gress, in its wisdom, seems will
ing to provide.
We are in favor of home rule
in the appointment to all offices
in the territory, aiid we are also
in favor of the fullest self-government
possible under the ter
ritorial conditions, and the full
control of all our internal affairs.
We condemn the present iniqm
tous fee system In existence in
New Mexico for the compensa
tion of county officials, which is
a direct result of republican leg
islation, and by which such offi
cials, are paid greatly in excess
of the value of their services to
the people of their respective
counties, thus imposing unneces
sary and burdensome taxation.
The fee system is a relic ol by
gone days, and we feel that this
territory has reached that stage
of development and progress
which demands its immediate ab
olition. We pledge the demo
cratic party of New Mexico, and
especially its representatives in
the Legislative Assembly, to fa
vor and work for the enactment
of a law placing all county offi
ces upon a salary basis, and the
reduction of salaries where they
are excessive under existing stat
utes. We emphatically condemn the
dishonest election methods of re
publican official in some parts
of the territory, in padding reg
istration lists with the names of
absent, fictitious and alien per
sons, in tampering with poll
books and ballot hoXca and mak
ing false returns, and we pledge
the mitiring efforts of our partv
to the detection and punishment
of such high crimes to the end
that every American citizen may
have a free ballot and a fair
count in the exercise of the high
est privilege of citizenship.
