The people of this district will re

Hon. M. C. Mechem as district At
torney. Mr. Mechem has made an
excellent record as a prosecutor
and is a worthy and painstaking
official. His local practice is tak
ing all of his time and simply com
pelled his resignation. Attorney
E. R. Wright of Santa Rosa, who
it is understood will be his sucess
or is a very able young lawyer
and will no doubt fill the position
with credit to himself and the district.
New Mexico can not well afford
to lose the services of its adver
tising agent, its herald of prosper
ity, Colonel Max Frost, whose
work as secretary of the territorial
bureau of immigration has borne
and is bearing such abundant
fruit. But few are endowed with
the natural ability to be a booster
which Colonel Frost possesses to
so large an extent. Add to this
that he has covered many parts of
the Territory on foot or horseback,
has seen it grow and develop,
keeps in touch with every detail of
the advancement of each and
every part of the commonwealth,
and the foundation is laid for suc
cessful work in securing immi
gration and capital for this unde
veloped empire. More than this,
Colonel Frost has the literary abil
ity to clothe in attractive form the
story of New Mexico's resources;
he has ' !oe experience in the
federal land office; has been in
close communication with thou
sands of homeseekers and knows
what they are looking for and
where to direct them. Such ser
vices can not be paid for in money
by any state or territory and that
commonwealth which can com
mand them is fortunate indeed.
In addition, we believe that
Santa Fe, the capital of the terri
tory is the place for the headquar
ters of the Bureau of Immigration.
The recent change from Santa Fe
to Albuquerque was, to put it
mildly a great and grevious mis
take and should be remedied at the
earliest possible moment. Santa
Fe is the natural and best point
for the headquarters and we are
of the opinion that the best inter
ests of the people and the proper
performance of the work of the
Bureau demand a change of its
location back to the territoral cap
ital, and the re-instatement of Col-1
onel Frost as Secretary.
The Tucumcari News has the con
solation of feeling that the paper
has accomplished something for
the ad vancement and development
of Quay county and more especially
for the community of Tucumcari.
This paper has always been in
the van pushing and working for
every enterprise that it considered
worth something to the town and
county. We have written of the
agricultural possibilities, about
the character of the soil and the
quality of water and the opportu
nities for the homeseeker, etc.
We have stood for law and order
and sanitation, it is our purpose
to build up always. We hope to
build up with the community which
to our great satisfaction is pros
pering and pushing ahead to a
noticablc degree every time the
sun rolls across our horizon.
This paper among the first
things after its inception advo
cated a city government and while
it was bitterly opposed by some of
our citizens, we have all lived to
see that it is a blessing to the com
munity. Valuable franchises
have already been granted by our
city counc', the streets have been
improved, fire limits have been es
tablished and the wood shack in the
business section is a thing of the
past. The city has made provis
ions for a park, a place of rest and
recreatibn for the people, side
walks have been ordered in front
of every business block in the
city; the town cow is off the street,
swine no longer root up the door
steps around our residences, the
prodigious canine has been re
moved from the streets and alleys
and the "aurora borealis" of the
slop barrel no longer thickens tin.
atmosphere with its nauseous fumes
There are many blessings and
conspicuous advantages the city I
has given us that we think little of
since it comes so easy. This pa
per believes it is the duty of every
citizen to stand firm with our city
council in the multiplicity of du
ties it must perform in the next
year as the growth of the town
adds daily to its labors.

T. S. Watts of Devenport, Ok

had a regular old fashioned farm
dinner Sunday at the home of
Marshall Patterson near town.
I They were sat down to spring
chicken and new potatoes and all
the appurtenances thereto apper
taining. Mr. Patterson has an
ideal home, fifty acres of the 160
beiner in cultivation. He has In
dian corn fourteen inches high and
growing just like corn in the Miss
issippi Valley. Other guests at
this farm dinner were Misses Dela
Simms and Mary Lotte. Mr. Pat
terson told his visitors that the
three inches of rainfall had in the
twenty-four hours previous to their
visit was worth $2.00 an acre to
his larm and crop. The News
would venture the suggestion that
the same holds good on every
farm in Quay co'.inty.
The San Jon Townsite Com
pany has published its articles of
incorporation and is getting ready
to open the townsite for the sale
of all sorts of real estate. This is
one of the most fertile sections
of Quay county and is dotted over
for miles with new homes nearly
all of them having in cultivation
from 20 to 100 acres. The town
is situated in a beautiful valley of
20X50 miles in area. The soil is
a dark sandy loam, deep and rich
and easv of cultivation. Water
may be had anywhere from 20 to
50 feet. The public domain is be
ing taken by homesteaders as fast
as the locators can get to it and
new homes are showing up in
every direction for miles in the
distance. The townsite is on the
tirade of the Choctaw extension
and in the proper location for a
town and station.
