THE FORTY-SEC EST H STATE.
New Mexico has beaten Arizona into
the Union. It is to rank as the forty?
seventh state, and from the historical
point of view it Is entirely appropriate
that it should take preceden?-?- ?nor Arl
aona, since New Mexico bears th?. name
given to the ancient Spanish province
acquired by the United States from
Mexico, from which Arizona was struck
jpff in l*->?i3 for greater administrative
convenience. Its territorial form of gov?
ernment is ten years older than \ii
iona's. its population has always boon
larger aud Its application for lulmlssion
to 8tateh<"tod came neat* being honored by
Congress as far hack as 1K7.V7??, when
?Colorado was ushered Into the Union.
New Mexl?v> also had a narrow escape
fr??m coming in as a slate in I!*??', en?
larged by the reabaorpHon of Arizona .
New Mexico will enjoy in its first year
of stat?'h?x?d a larger representation In
?Congress than will bo allotted to it from
and after March p\ 11.13. It elected two
Representatives last. November to serve
in Ihe ?S?d ('?ingress, but in the lower
branch <>f the 6M Congress it will Juive
only one vote. This reverses the expe?
rience of niftst DOW states. Oklahoma
had to be ?-??ntent with five Representa?
tives ?m admission in 1907, but on the
?rst sul-.se?meiit apportionment it gaino:l
thr?-v acata, and no newly created state
in our time except New Mexico has seen
Its representation contract ?hI after ,t
brief exercise of larger power.
'I'll?- Tribun?' said tarty last year that
the tale of th?' in??une tax amendment lo
fl:e federal Constitution DrffM be <let?'r
tiiiti?-?! by the votes of New Mexico and
Arix.oii.-i. The legislalnres of th?- two
new commonwealths will 1??* in session
this winter and both are likely t<> MMM
?hi ihe amendment. Their admission will
raise the three-fourths majority ri-quln*
from 85 f<? .'.f., and if bot? vats for th??
StneiKlmeiit the number <?f states ratify?
ing will l?e increase?! fr?>ui thirty-one to
thirty-three. The I? _islatur?'s of Massa
<-hii??t)s, Uh'Nle Islaii'l. New J?-rsey, Vir?
ginia. I/iuisi.-iiiH ami Vermont will liiiv"
an oppofttntlty to tak?> furtlier lulion on
the amendment lills year. Rut they are
all dtstix-lined to ratify, and it wil!
probably lie found, if the amendment Is
finally adopted, that Its success wag
made poasible through the approvals reg
If.ered l,\ Arizona and Now Mexico. If
New Mexico sHould decliue to ratify,
Arizona's vote would be merely offset,
and the status quo existing before fhe
puE.age i,i the du?? Ftatehooii act would
remain unchanged. Like Nevada In
IMS, the two new states will have an
exceptional ?opportunity to make their
?power fell in their teething year.

The stupendous task of correcting, in
M far as is pnj?.sih|e, the errors of Repub?

in the present ?'opgress. , No man
in the House is better qualified t" i'
tempt this undertaking and to mould the

a divining rod. Our only wonder Is how
it managed i" dodge the Hon. Adam

Mr. I.ittlepage Is also ?something of a

When the traflie to Brooklyn ceased to
pass by its doors tin? decay of Fulton
Market as a popular ??stabllsbmenf was
assured. In fact. Its d?*cllne began earlier,
when Brooklyn opened markets of Its
own and Ivong Island farmers ??eased to
carry th?'ir produce acroas the Fast
Hiver. It is not surprlsine. then, to learn
??hat its stalls are in the hands of a few
tradesmen, who supply hotels and steam?
ship lines rather than housewives, aial
that its maintenance has long been un?
profitable to the city. Its abolition and
sale appear natural and Inevitable The
Fulton strei-r car line has ceased to run.
The fcr,i"i??s to Brooklyn In that neigh?
borhood are not profitable. The tendency
is against that particular quarter as a
place of retail trade.
Fulton Market trae the?joeeetrar?tf an
old Doten market ??ailed the Fly Market.
Will it have itself | successor somewhere
else when? one Is more needed? Much is
heard of the opening of markets In other
eitlen and of the benefits they confer
upon the consumer. and?pvery -little while
the public is a&siirod that the only way

with which Hyde i- charged and has had

guilt ??r innocence.
The newspaper criticism ??f Hyde had
m-.thing to do with the present charge
against him. It was. moreover. Justified
on tlie ground that he was a public of?
ficiai. Its purpose was to make Hyde
nn?| Mayor <;ayn?>r nee the impropriety
of his conduct in the ofti''o of City Cham?
berlain. Il was based upon his neglect
of his duties, his absence from the city
when ho was wanted, and knew* lie was
to he wanted, ss a witm^ss in an impor
tant legislative Investigation, his choic??
of unsafe depositories for the city fumls
and the borrowings of his friends from

posited The "attacks" upon Hyde wore
well m?rite?!. Sharp criticism is ihe only
defence the public has against careless
and negligent officials. The propriety of
such criticism ha? h?*en rocognlrod over

would-be President of a country which

often so hostile to Christianity should
himself be of foreign training If not
actually of foreign birth, and I Christian
by Inheritance <>f creeil. There seems to
bo some doubt ns t?> irtMtber luv Sun
was born ?t Canton or at Honolulu, with
the weight <?f authority favoring the lat

of a Christian missionary and that be
was educated In non-Chineas institution?
at Hong K??ng ami Macao. Early In bia
career he practised medicino in Canton
and was one ?>f seventeen Young ?bina

and auspicious, however, that lie is a
