, WHY IS PKlUtlAUU auai.d
MEASURE ARE HEARTILY AMUS
ED AT HIS CONDUCT. THE TURN
OF THE LEAF.
"The special received by The Citi
zen yesterday, telling of, tue part At
torney General George W. Pricbard
and other New Mexico politicians are
taking In the fight against Joint state
hood at the national caplital, brtugB
to the mind of the writer the conduct
of Mr. Prichard previous to his ap
pointment to the office of attorney
general, thus obligating himself . to
Governor Otero. It's a case of the
sensitive palm of the leaf of the plant
turning with the sun, and basking,
profiting and growing under Its rays.
"At the outset of the Joint statehood
movement no more ardent supporter
of it could be found that Colonel
Prichard of White Oaks, Lincoln
county, and it was quite complimen
tary to the movement to have the col
onel's support. He was an attorney
at law of reputation, and a gentleman
of deep thoimht, one who had lived
under a territorial form of government
for many years and was of wide ex
perience. Colonel W. S. Hopewell says that he
remembers when Colonel Prichard
came' to him and congratulated
on the stand be had taken for joint
statehood. Even In California Inst
summer, the writer rememliers that
Colonel Prieliard took great delight In
talking Joint statehood to the Hon.
Marcus Smith, delegate from Arizona.
W. H. Greer was another New Mexi
can who took delight in talking joint
statehood to the Hon. Marcus Smith,
and so ardent were these gentlemen
in their supiKirt of Joint statehood and
so fertile were their arguments that
Mr. Smith finally fled to Catallna Is
land In the Pacific ocean, to escape
"Then those who witnessed and
heard the able speech made by Col
onel Prichard In support of Hon. H. S.
Rodey at thp last territorial republi
can convention, will also remember
that the colonel, immediately after the
convention, male a trio over the ter
ritory campaigning for the nominated
candidate. Directly after that cam
paign, the politicians who bad on two
occasions defeated him for the ap
pointment of district Judge, made him
attorney general. '
"The influence Mr. Prichard ought
to have on the members of congress
on the statehood matter should act
very much as a boomerang."
I ask of you a little space In your
valuable paper to say in reply to tbe
above, that at no time or place, In
public or in private, verbally or In
writing, have I ever said tnat I waa in
favor of joint statehood as against
separate statehood. The writer of the
article above quoted may have been
inspired to think that because I took
the position at the Ijis Vegas conven
tion, a yeur and a half ago, In favor
of duclariug for statehood simply.
without any qualifying clauses, that I
favored Jolut statehood, but there was
not an act or a word of mine at that
time upon which to draw such infer
ence. I was In the Albuquerque conven
tion last fall and was on the commit
tee on resolutions at that time and
drew and presented the following sep
arate statehood resolution to the com
mittee, and It was unanimously adopt
"Statehood is the most important
question before tho ptmple of New
Mexico at Ibis time. Our loyalty to
the general government, our great
progress in natural wea'th, our sys
tem of magnificent schools, our code
of civil and criminal law, our freedom
Trom mob law, our respect for the
couru. the extent of our great terri
tory, and the intelligence of our peo
ple entitle us to an equal status among
this resolution was introduced by me
and adopted by the committee. I
supported Mr. Rodey at this conven
tion for re-nomination as a candidate
for delegate to congress, earnestly,
enthusiastically and determinedly, but
not one word was said by me in tnat.
convention, before It, or after it, in
favor of Joint statehood. Mr. Itodey,
not having been nominated, I support
ed Mr. Andrews, the nominee of that
convention. In the campaign, believing
it my duty to do so, as it was tbe duty
of every republican to do, and I advo
cated separate statehood In that cam
paign as a party measure, and the re
publican candidate tor delegate to con
gress was elected on a platform con
taining the aliove separate Btatehood
I remember being In Los Angeles
last, summer and of meeting there the
Hon. Marcus Smith, the Hon. W. H.
Greer and others, and that statehood
was freely discussed. So far the state
ment In the above article is true, but
it is unenuivoeally untrue that I said
one word at that time in favor of
joint Ktiitehooil. but on the other hand
advocated with' all the reason at my
command, separate statehood for New
Mexico, and the Hon. Mark Smith, Mr.
C. M. Shannon, who at that time lived
him i m this territory, and mo Hon. w. .
Grew, and a half dozen otners, wnose
possible not to congratulate him on
any honorable effort he might make.
Not having changed my views on this
subject I have nothing to apologize
j for. 1 do not look at the question In
it he light that a man Is necessarily
my enemy because he may differ from
me on this subject. I accord to oth
ers the same right that I assume to
myself of thinking and acting as they
please. It Is only a difference of
opinion on a public matter, in which
misrepresentations of another's posU
tlon helps neither the individual mak
ing them nor the cause he represents.
The proposition of Joint statenoou
never came from the people of either
territory in the first llace, but is sim
ply a re-echo of a sentiment that
found its birth among some of our
eastern friends, who were Jealous of
Ihe growing power of the west, and
who look Ht the question through nav
row sectionalism. I am not borrow
ing my ideas from those gentlemen on
the statehood question, as I
