WHAT HAD THE PEOPLE OP ALBUQUERQUE OR OF THE COUNTY TO DO WITH THE SELECTION OF THE PERFECTO ARMIJO TICKET NAMED BY THE BOLTERS YESTERDAY? 1 ! HISTORY OF THE CASE Nothing coull le more regular than has l'en 'ho whole mntier of the republican precinct and county ! conventions. They were called by the county central committee, the Haiti committee naming the time and place for the county convention, and naming those who fchcAild call the precinct conventions. The precinct conventions were calle.i by the parties so named, and the conventions elected their delegates to the county convention. Thus was everything done regularly and iu order. But here is the rtih. The morning paper, working In the interests of the democracy, had drawn together a small following of dis appointed office seekers, disgruntled soreheads, and people of that ilk. It had also secured a yet sninld number of good bin misguided republicans who will doubtless yet see the error of their way. This Journal following,' reinforced hy the Perfecto Armljo faction, became by the false assertions of the Journal Imbued with the idea that they really had or could pretend to hiive a majority of the republicans of the rounty upon their aide. The time came, and the faction found themselves in the minority In very nearly every precinct in the "county. Then, inspired by the rule or ruin principle, this Perfecto Armljo faction !olted the primaries and elected or appointed contesting delegations to the coun ty convention. These contestants went beTore t:ie committee appointed on credentials. They were pa tiently heard, but not having an lota of claim to regu larity or right, they were of necessity refused seats. Then they formed a convention of their own and went through the farce of electing delegates to the territorial convention sad of putting up a county ticket. This la the history of the whole case. Not one single thing can be pointed to truthfully by this Perfecto Armljo faction which was done Irregularly or contrary to party cturtom. In their own case not a step was taken which was ,not Irregular and put them without the pale of the republican party as a faction If not as Individuals. , For them to brazenly attempt to appro priate the party name, and to steal the party emblem, shows an amount of cheek absolutely mammoth. , That the rank and file of the republican party in this county will countenance such proceedings la not to be imagined for a moment. That the representatives of the republican party In the terri'.ory,. assembled at Las Vegas on Saturday next, will countenance their conduct and' their claims, Is too absurd even to be men tioned. The whole movement has been engineered by the morning paper to injure If possible the republican party, and that It has fallen at ill born is no more than could have been- expected. : ; AFTER PARTY NAME l Speaking of polltica in New York state, the San Francisco Chronicle says: "The main 'merest centers In the democratic party, which, there as elsewhere, is sorely tormented with In ternal feuds, and the efforta of different factions of 'Ihe lunatic class to get possession of the party name ana whatsoever of good will it may retain." There Is cne exception to the Chronlcle'a assertion that the democrats are everywhere tormented with feuds. They are not so tormented In New Mexico, and especially not bo tormented In Bernul:Ilo county.- Here, It la the republican party In which the lunatic class has created a feud In Its effort to get possession of the party name and the good will which the name carries; and the democrats have nothing to do, thanks to the long continued labors of their orgHn. the morning paper, but to sit back and try to sick the Perfecto Armljo faction against (he regular county and territorial organization. Fortunately for republicanism the Perfecto Armljo feud ists have Bhown themselves too weak, alike In numbers and leadership, '.o really Injure the organization of the party. The Journal will have ita treason for Its pains, aud the patronage it has been promised by the demo crats will never materialize. tup nrrvni f i-i-vrcrv inc. rcuiLt iuiwrcu i The bowlings of the morning paper and the coterie It commands has for months been that the people were not consulted in the selection of candidates. This has been the charge of the morning paper so frequently that no doubt the often repeated words were kept in type to be handy when needed. Willi someone please say when the people were consulted as 10 the Perfecto Armljo ticket tor county offlcea, niHde public yesterday? A convention to name county candidates has not yet been called, and even had the Perfecto Arniijo gans beeen leguiarly elected by the majority of the party in the aeveial primaries, they would have had no r'ubt to name a ticket, for that question was not before the pri maries. Yet the Journal-Armijo combine put forth a ticket about which the people were not conmiltpd and which was selected and slated by Perfecto Armijo a week at learn before the primaries were held. Will the republicans of Bernalillo county submit to such an out rage? Don't believe it for a moment. Nothing more rotten in politics was ever offered to a nauseated Amer ican community than this Perfecio Armljo job. The following from the St. Johns. Art., Herald, shows a true but by no mens alluring picture of our sister territory. . However, it furnishes a most excel lent argument whv the people of Arizona should desire statehood with their more prottiwrous sister. New Mex ico: "By allowing tax dodgers to work the'r 'eon games' Arizona ha.-i contributed most liberally to pay ing expenses of European tours, fine diunem at $l.uuu iwr plate,, pala'ial residences In the cities of the states and in foreign corntries, and lately has begun to aid in paying fines .u the conns. Her bona title citizens stay at home, eat whatever they can get, live in any old kind of hi. axe pay :he taxes and go to the 'pen' when bailed into cturt, while Arizona herself Is prac tically without adequate public buildings and Is over three million dollar, in debt. That's a sorry picture of our territory to hand It out is regret able but look around you and see for yourselves If It Is nut pretty nearly fue to llf.V' New Mexican: The Yellow Albuquerque Fakir Journal Is yellower than ever. It glories in the present dissensions between republicans of Bernalillo county in the Itelief that these will prove of pecuniary and finan cial benefit to the pang owning and controlling the sheet. It cares noi for principle, it cares not for party, It caies not lor the people. "It don't make no difference nohow," was the de claration it the learned county superintendent of edu cation, yesterday.

XXXX0XX0X000X300XXXCOX0 5 KANSAS SETS THE PRICE ' 8 ON PUBLIC SCHOOL BOOKS 000000XXXX0XXX)OOCX00000 Topeka. Kas., Sept. 2". The state of Kansas has successfully bifkeu the Ix.ok trust for ten years. Every five years ii saves about a half million dollars on Its book bill. Time afier time the book trust In vain has tried to break the backbone of tlip law which holds prices down. It is already rumored that another attempt will be made to have tne law changed at the coming ses sion of the legislature. However, the people have found out the law is a good one. In the common schools of Kansas, the most expen sive book ccsts but W cents. From this the price de creases to lo cents. The prices are the same every where in the s ate. The books need are same. The trust has no re.-touree. Kansas names the prices. For the same books that Kansas school children pay so and 90 cents school children In Nebraska, Iowa Michl gan, Illinois. Ohio, the New England and many other foreastern states pay $1 to $1.5o. The school liooks that sell for ; cents In Kansas sell for 7o cents and $1 In some other states. Kansas parents pay about $750,000 for text books every five years. The flrst year after a change in text liooks Is made, about $2.VI,(mo Is expended. During the next four years Hbotit $511001111 Ih expended. Acording to prices charged by the book trust in other places the Kansas book bill for five years would amount to about $l,2.ln.00ii. The Kansas text book law Is regarded aa one of the best laws passed by the famous "Pop" legislature of 1897. It Is one of the fpw "Pop" lawn which have sur vived. The prices fixed then still prevail. A book commission of eight men Is appointed by the governor and the senate to serve for five years. No political patty shall hove more than three representa tives on this commission. The state superintendent is a member ex offlcio and chairman. As soon as the text books are adopted bids are ask ed for. The contracts are awarded for a period of Ave years. The publishers are required to have an agent at every county seat. The publishers all now deal through a central distributing agency, the Kansas Book Co., lo cated here. There are 105 county seat agents and about 540 others. The law provides that every quality of the book shall he as good as la sold in other states. Besides saving a half million dollars to the parents the law has proven beneficial In other ways. It does away with publishers' agents harrasaing local school boards. When cash accompanies an order for books and this order amounts to over $10, the publishers are com pelled to pay the freight. Uniformity of text books In all the schools in the state has proved another benefit. When the text book commission changes text books, the holders of old books can turn them back to their dealers and receive 50 per cent of their original cost. Here !s a list of books used In the Kansas schools, with a few exceptions, and the prices fixed by the staie: New Model Arithmetic, adv. (Belfleld) 35c Revised Model Arithmetic, el.

The homeseeker who gets a home on government irrigated land must be very uiick on his feet. It does beat all hpw, the settlers are coming to Idaho. ' . There are three big Irrigation projects In Idaho. These projects are converting Into fertile, tracts an area of desert equal to nearly three times the tillable area of Rhode Island. Every acre ot the laud embraced In the two gov ernment projects one of which is Just completed and the other hardly more than started has been entered by a settler. The Minidoka project consists 01" a dum across the Snake river about t5 miles above the Shohone falls. The water diverted at this point Is sufficient to supply lioo farms of 80 acri's each. The dam will be finished at the end of this month, and this fall the first water will be put on the.-e 1100 farms. But on every one of the l.lou farms a settler has been camping many of them for two or three years waiting for this water. And there are 300 contests on file, urging I be claims of oilier settlers. In addition to theso th-re are t;nti more set'lers, outside the area em braced In the Minidoka tract, who have taken up homesteads in the deceit, and who expect the Irriga tion to spread out to them. Another bl;j government Iriigation project In this state is located north and west of Boise City, and Is one of the largest yet undertaken by the reclamation ser vice. It will add two Rhode Islands to the agricultural urea of the 1' lilted States, and wilf support more pop ulation (ban the Sal; Luke v'nliev. Of the 372 000 acres to lie reclaimed by this work, all but 25 per cent are government lands, the rest being owned by the state of Idaho. But every acre of gov ernment land has already been filed' upon by an intend ing settler. Thus there is practically no chance for the newcomer. The preler.'iire of the settlers Is for the govern ment, as distinguished from the stale IrrlgaTion pro jects. This accounts for the fact that there are stilll lands 10 be had In the Twin Kails region, while In the Minidoka and the Payene Boise lautU are all filed upon. The government eng'necrs are doing their work in a very conscientious and thorough faction, and their ditches and dams are of a character to last forever. The (oki of the wal-r to tie- settler Is about ihe same under each system. Lands In the povenimein's Minidoka project will cost about $Jii an arte to leclalm. The average Is about the same in the Paycre-lioo-o regio.i. This cost, which rep resents the actual cost of getting the water to the bind 1 for the land li.is no value without it) is assessed on Ihe settler in ibe form of ten equal annual payments. At the end of leu years ibe settler has his land, and the water to go with It. in perpetuity, w ih no charee or lax except what is needed to keen 11 n the works. The latter aw turned over, after the lu-year period, to the laud owners, and they fotm a geiieral associa tion among themselves and manage the water on the co-operative plan.
