that changed weekly. The price is 15 cts.
an inch local liners 1 ct. a word.
There is a revival meeting going
on this week at the Baptist church.
The meetings are being well
attended and much interest is manifested.
What is the matter with side
walk building? Many of our
property owners complied with the
city ordinance and built walks
right away while others seem to
pay no attention to it.
Tucumcari is going to be a live
ly trading point for the next two
weeks. Clearance sales are be
ing ronducted by Gross, Kelly &
Co., The M. B, Goldenberg Co.,
and Israel. All of them are push
ing things in a business way.
The city needs better railway
crossings than we have at present
and the people are anxious to see
something done immediately. The
situation is too dangerous to pass
without notice and a serious acci
dent may be prevented by imme
diate action for good crossings.
Tucumcari leads all other land
districts in the number of home
stead filings to date. Up to July
i, this year there was 3,700, and on
many of them there is corn that is
going to make 50 bushels per acre,
Who Will Be President?
The Forum which makes a spec
ialty ot the discussion of political
and economic subjects, predicts!
that President Roosevelt will be
re-nominated by the Republicans
in less than a year Irom now; that
he will firmly decline the nomi
nation and that then either Taft
or Fairbonks will be nominated
although at present the contest for
the nomination is an open one,
with a fair field and no favor.
Vice President Fairbanks has the
most extensive organization while
Secretary Taft is regarded as the
favorite of President Roosevelt.
Says the Forum: "The nominee
must come ftom the West and out
side of Taft and Fairbanks there
is no one in the western field who
is available save Mr. Cannon,
whose age may bar him from con
sideration." The Forum contin
ues that Bryan will be the nominee
of the Democrats and that if he
declines, the choice will lie be
tween judge Gray of Delaware
and Governor Johnson of Minne
sota. I he last named is obvious
ly to be most feared for he has
twice carried a strongly Republi
can state because he is a washer
woman's son" and nothing appeals
so much to manv voters as the
story of the humble origin of a
presidential candidate. As to the
issues they will be mainly federal
control of corporations and tariff
reform. Both parties will advo
cate these but they will differ as to
the means and the extent of carry
ing those policies into effect. This
seems to be a concise and logical
summing up of the situation as it
appears today to the careful ob
server. The New Mexican might
add, however, that at no time did
the chances for Republican suc
csss appear so strong and bright
and that these chances are apt to i
improve each day, so that on e
lection day of 1908 the Republi
cans will be overwhelmingly vie
torious. New Mexican.
It is certainly a good recommen
dation for any community to have
a good public school but Tucum
cari takes the record this year, we
have a 15 mill levy for school pur
poses, 10 of it voted by the tax
payers and 5 mills levied by the
county commissioners. This
means that we are to have a school
fund that will pay our six or seven
teachers and run nine or ten
months. Prof. C. E. Ware is the
principal and an excellent teacher,
and assistants will be employed
this year whenever needed and the
rooms will not be crowded as
heretofore. The new annex will
be completed in time for the open
ing in August which will give
two additional rooms. There is
going to be a second building put
up in the Buchanan Addition so
the outlook for school in Tucum
cari this fall is very flattering.
The next national convention of
Elks will convene in Dallas, Texas.
We are informed that Montoya
is going to have a newspaper and
a building is being erected for that
purpose. A good lively local
newspaper will be a great help to
Montoya and the News will be
pleased to see the people have it.
Tucumcari and the surrounding
country had a fine rain Wednesday
evening and night. This down
pour came in an opportune time,
just as the corn was growing into
silk and tassel. This rain makes
the corn. What a blessing to
many people who came here with
limited means to settle homes, a
good crop gives them a new lease
