their aid and the aid of the Coun
cilmen Duncan and Spiess, and the
good citizens of Quay county, I
was successful in passing the only
County measure during the last
term of the Assembly, while there
were over a dozen bills of this
nature before the Legislature
which failed to pass. This County
measure is known as House Bill
No. 61. The passage of this bill
means that we have taken into
Quay county two prosperous little
towns, namely, Logan and Nara
Visa. It means that we now have
a county which will be self-supporting;
it means that we will not have
to borrow money from the Territory
to hold our terms of court; it means
that the county officers of Quay
county, will, in the future receive
their hard-earned salary, which
since the creation of this county
they have not been getting; it
means about one million dollars or
more of taxable property into the
the treasury of our county; it means
that we will have court at the reg
ular terms, to prosecute the crimi
nal and to release the innocent
ones who are charged with crime;
it means the everlasting welfare
of this county.
I was also successful in the pas
sage of a Community Lard Grant
bill, which is for the benefit of the
residents of the other portions of
the District which I represented,
being the county of Guadalupe.
The good people of that county
have for fifty years last past plead
ed with the legislatures for the
passage of a bill of this nature
but have always failed. So, there
fore, I am more than pleased to
have accomplished the passage of
the last two measures mentioned.
Both are of great benefit to each of
the two counties I represented.
I was the father of the following
bills, and was successful in passing
the most important ones.
