ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEH.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1906. PAGE FOUR. THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN Published Daily and Weekly. By The Citizen Poblishing Company W. 8. STRICKLER, President. W. T. McCRCIGHT, Business Manager. Elllnwood Scorched K. B. Elllnwood. railway attorney and chairman r the Arizona democratic central committer, having through the Thoenix Republican expressed the opinion that any member of his committee who did not agree with him In opposing statehood, ought to resign. Isaac Harth of St. Johns, Ariz., who is known well in this, sec tion, made the following caustic and unanswerable reply: Sir: uelng a member of that committee, 1 take this opportunity to communicate to you my views upon that subject. i m n native of Arizona and all my life has been Kient in an endeavor to promote the general welfare of this territory; and I have always regarded that state ,wi u Hip rreatest boon that can ever come to us; and I have ever persisthently and consistently advocated the admission of Arizona as a state. At the age of eighteen I was first elected a member of the committee from which you would now expel me - traitor to niv native territory. In IWt tne meson convention elected me ns a delegate to the National dem ocratic convention and while at St. lxiuis I worked in union with the other delegates from Arizona to secure a plank in the national platform declaring for separate statehood for Arizona. We were successful, as you know, but I found that the delegates from the eastern doip. unrp ncainst the proposition, even in that demo cratic Catherine. The platform was adopted, it is true, but the financial plank was the only one that was con sidered of Importance and the statehood plank went in AHer the convention, in traveling through some of the eastern states, and meeting men who were informed upon the question, I became convinced that wo wouldn't be admitted as a single state within the next genera tion; and when the present enabling aet was approved i r.o nroai.ipnt t decided that matter: no matter how much we may prefer single statehood, the best Interests of Arizona demand that we accept Jointure ;nnu mere- fore I believe myself consistent In advocating Its ac rani a ti Pfl " . . , . i. You say that "the member floes not represent iinur.i or his own views but the sentiment of the party at the time of the selection of the committee." Your opinion upon this point like mine upon the statehood question must have changed recently. ..re you not the same Ellinwood who wrote to Judge Harmon of Ohio? "Though the Arizona delegation Is Instructed for Hearst, I am personally acquainted with each member of the delegation and assure you that they ate men of good sense and will use their own judgment ami will not con sider these Instructions binding after the first ballot." The letter was given to me and read by me to Henry F. Ashurst of Coconino. WTiat has changed the opinion you then held upon this point of instructions? You say that we have had noj-new Instructions from the party since the convention of two years since and we must be bound by the Instructions then given. The convention of 1904 didn't Instruct us npon any point whatsoever. We were named solely as a committee to assist In the election of our delegate to congress and to name the time and place for holding the next con vention. The jointure question is not a political Issue, and even if it Is, we have no authority whatever to bind the democratic party to either side of that question. Am I going to resign? Decidedly not. I still consider myself as entertaining the same political opinion that I had at the time of my last elec tlon to this committee and up to the present moment am a staunch supporter of the cause of democracy, and, In credible as It may appear to 'you, Ellinwood, my views upon even this "treasonable" question of jointure are upheld by a great number of my constituents, and In view of that fact I shall only regret that upon statehood, religion and some other equally Important questions our views are different but I shall not resign. ' You, my friend Elllnwood, In your aeal against Jointure, cannot -read me out of the democratic party. Why do you want to have the members who are in favor of Joint statehood resign? Haven't you a majority in the committee who are opposed to Jointure? Are you afraid of the result of a vote in that committee? We want statehood, Ellinwood, and we can't get it any other way, and you know it. Come, let us mind our own busi ness. The reason of the failure in some people Is that they are so busy minding other people's business that they haven't time to mind their own. Let us meet and same the time and place for holding the next democratic convention and leave the statehood question to the peo pie to vote upon at the election. After all, Ellinwood, as the Republican says, "It is the people's business." Respectfully yours, ISAAC BARTH. ooocy'voacCKoxx Faftfteninfi Lambs cm Pea Crops in. Field Telegram to Denver Republican. ockcocoocckxxo Monte Vista, Colo.. Aug. 4 (Special). Between 5'X', h hi and t'.un.iMnp Jambs will be fattened on peas about this town the coming fall and winter. This Is a conserv ative estimate based upon figures given by the leading nu'ii engaged in the lamb-feeding business. The acre, age of I as and pea and grain mixture exc eeds by 30 pe: cent that sowed last season, and crops are exception ality fine this year owing to the cool summer and an abundance of water for irrigating purposes. This side issue to ordinary farming has developed f.wwltn.r like a fairy story for tne iarmers umn iau.u has become the groat Industry of the San Luis valley and is enriching the farmers at a pace which makes all but the steadiest giddy. It has satisfactorily solved the problem of this, ne of the largest, lowest natural parks In the Rocky mountains, where certain disadvantages f.,- v.,r Ei.n.i-,1 to outweigh the advantages, looking illst,:issionatelv over the unfilled portion. Two great specific facts have always shone out in favor of this mountain-locked valley; Its ever-delightful climate and an easily reached and abundant artesian water supply and for even the most unsentimental can not stand unmoved before such a setting scenery no where excelled in the whole mountain region. Of course, those settled upon the banks of the rivers and creeks threading the valley and lands tributary and easily watered from these streams have never nnu any thing to disturb the even tenor of their money-making; hnvo nlwnva lived nnon the fat of 4be land. But the holdings of theso lucky and care-free farmers ng gregated not much more than one-third of the fertile noition of a valley 3ut) miles long and 55 miles wide Those who yet recognized the fertility of the greater part of the remaining two-thirds and undertook to work out. of it. harvest fields of wheat, oats, nancy nnu pota toes, met sometimes with a shortage of water, often with alkali, merciless patches of adobe which held in its sun baked clasp the grains confidently entrusted to it, and fox-tail when grass land was sought to be establlsneu Source of Great Revenue. But the worst of these conditions which collectively often yielded sore disappoint ment and mayhap ruin to the pioneer trying the country out when his season s ion New Mexican: The Arizona newspapers opposed to joint statehood are still harping upon the fact that the entire indebtedness of New Mexico, territorial, county, city and school district, is greater than that of Arizona They do not care to take into consideration that the ter ritorial indebtedness of New Mexico proper Is very much smaller than that of the sister territory, and that the new state of Arizona, if created, will not need to bear the burden of the county, city and Bchool district indebt edness of New Mexico. They also fall to give heed to the fact that New Mexico Is much greater in extent than Is Arizona, has more than double the population of the latter territory and three times its wealth. The present tiut a one-Bided and unfair aspect of the question. They may win with such tactics but this paper hopes not. campaign of education is going on, which, if the voters of Arizona will but read and heed will bring about a dif ferent result. Around the Town By F. R. DYAS One of the nephews of Russell Sage has announce to the country at large that he Intends to contest hi uncle's will. In which he was given $2j.(MKi, because he is resolved not to bo defrauded out of his "light" to share the old man's millions. As neither he nor his an cestors made one cent of those millions, the thinking people of the country are wondering what right lie has to bis unele'B wealth. Evidently the nephew is a fool of the first class. He ought to come out to Arizona where lie would have t-omo, company, since there are those there, with a smaller sprinkling in New .Mexico, who with equal stupidity declare they wont accept joint statehood because they are determined not to be cheated out of their "right" to single statehood. The cases are precisely similar. (lallup Republican: The time to vote on the stale hood question is rapdily drawing near and ns far as New Mexico goes there is an unquestionable majority for The measure; however, the majority in this territory will be a great boost for New Mexico should Arizona vote the proposition down. The jointure sentiment Is growing in Arizona, many Influential men of that territory are tak ing the pro side of the question and may carry the day, and then the second greatest state in the I'nion will re sult. Should Arizona beat the measure New .Mexico has a chance to be admitted as a single state at the coming meeting of congress and the bigger the majority for joint statehood the better the chance for statehood. Dally Optic: The republicans of the nation have a fine congressional record upon which to appeal to the country this fall and President Roosevelt's name is a tower of strength. There seems to be no likelihood of a defeat. Yet, it must be admitted that the tariff revi sionists within the ranks of the republicans are grow ing rapidly. It is fortunate that the republicans can revise the tariff quite as well as and better than the democrats. us over, have been trampled under foot by a lamb! The tread of the sheep over the obdurate soil has proved to be a wand whose touch converts these erstwhile un- lelding fields into golden grain, and, blessings never online singly, the same fairy working this wonder steps allv forward, sweot-meated from the pea pod and vine pon which he has fed while performing his miracle pon the land, and offers himself to tile niaiKet. at i er hundred weight: The farmers chuckle at the mere facts. It is no uncommon sight to see a nair uozen auto mobiles piloted toward town by farmer owners Although in all probability nearly three-quarters o million lambs will be fattened here the ensuing autumn nd winter the arable land as yet unused with its' sixty miles of canals and 500 miles of laterals, besides the atural streams, is still In its incipiency. The expert nient has been made and proved a success a mint to the farmer. He Is reaching out. year alter year but careful not to go beyond his depth, increasing his pea elds, his lamb herds and his bank account. The strange feature of thoso who remember how cheaply sheep could be bought a few years ago. Is that the farmer pays the sheep men chiefly or all .Mexican $4.50 a hundred weight for young sheep, and after feeding and shipping can still sell at big profits, and the Imnortant fact which must not be lost sight of is tn greater fertility of the soil after the sheep have left it nsuring a great crop of grain the next succeeding year, while the peas and the sheep are transferred In rota tion to other and poorer land, to be made rich in turn A brief account of the experiment and the neces sltles which provoked it together with a few of the mar ket figures will le more satisfying to the statistician than generalities. James A. Kelly of Monte Vista, who is considered one of the best authorities upon sheep In the state, has this to say upon the subject: "This new industry of lamb feeding, from a small beginning a few years ago, has grown enormously and is now and probably will always be the most important business of the whole valley and one of the greatest of the kind in the state. Growth of Business. In 1901 there were about 8,000 lambs fed in the val ley in 1902, 16,000; in 1903, 60,000; in 1904. 160,000; in 1905, 430.000. This phenomenal increase has more behind It than the following fad or the impulse to get rich over night. It Is a development forced by the necessities of successful farming here, and hence It rests upon a per manent and enduring foundation. Years ago it was the practice to crop the land only every other year, sum mer plowing It In alternate years, as It was found that one grain crop could not follow another one success fully owlnir -to neculiar conditions existing here. By the summer fallow method "immense crops of grain were raised but it was soon seen that It gradually decreased the fertility of the soil, and that some rotation of crops must be found which would not only restore and keep up the fertility of the land, but would permit the crop ping of all of the land every year. If farming were to be permanently successful and profitable. "Our nll la deficient In humus and nitrogen and of all the leguminous family we found field peas most near ly supplied the element lacking. They are more easily and cheaply raised than wheat or oats; they restore quickly and increase the fertility of the soil. Now to find a market for the crop. Although making fine hay equal to alfalfa when cut in blossom, there was no mar ket for it locally, neither was there for the pea grain if allowed to mature, and besides the grain is difficult and expensive to harvest "K. Sylvester and myself attempted to solve this problem by feeding the pea hay to lambs In corrals, In the usual way, mid using wheat ,oats nnd barley for the grain feed. The direct financial returns were not satis factory, due to cost of grain, although we saw the in creased fertility of the soil. Mr. Sylvester then turned the lambs into the unharvested pea field, and after the pea grain was matured. The gains were better than when he fed grain in the corral. You see then the pea crop could l,e allowed to mature on the ground and thus supply both liav and grain on the same ground, ami lambs could be turned into the field to fatten for mar ket. thus sawng not only the expense of harvesting the pea crop and of feeding the lambs In corrals, but a sav ing of the grain t wheat, oats and barley) raised upon other laud, which the farmer would otherwise have to feed them. Pea Fed Lamb Has Advantages. "It lias been proved that lambs fattened in the pea field will make as good gains as will tlfe same class of lambs fed on hay and grain In corrals In the usual way; that they shrink less in shipment; that they 'kill out' better, dressing a higher per cent; that pea-fed iambs command a premium in the markets and finally, that our lamb feeders have a wider margin of profit than have lamb feeders in anv other place using Htiy other method. ' The superior dressing quality of pea-fed lambs was recently illustrated very conclusively at the stock show In Denver, where K. Sylvester and Frank Sylvester each showed a car of ea fed lambs. The block test showed the following results: Corn and alfalfa-fed lambs dressed .61 per cent. F. Slvester's pea-fed lambs dressed .6751 per cent. Frank Sylvester's pea-fed lambs dressed 6778 per cent. if, as the packers claim, every additional per cent which a lamb will dress out makea It worth $0.12Vi per hundred more live weight then these Sylvester lambs were really worth over Mi cents per hundred more than the corn and alfa'.ta-fed lambs entered in the same test.
