PAGE FOUR. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1D06. THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN Published Dally and Weekly. By The Citizen Publishing Company W. . STRICKLER, W. T. McCRCIGHT, President. Duilneat Manager. REGULARITY VS. SOREHEADS Tin; Now Mexican of yesterday said: "It Is rather hard linos to nsk the republican territorial convention at l.aa Vegas on Saturday to mix Into county contests and lo lie. arbiter between contesting delegations. How ever. If harmony results, and factional difference are nettled autborila!tely, the Influence will be for the good. Fortunately, all controversies are entirely cf a local nature and do not affect the party at large." Yes. that would be hard, but fortunately it Is not the case so far as Bernalillo county is concerned. There goes from this county a delegation legally and rightfully elected, every provision of republican procedure having been fol lowed In both spirit and letter. Then there probably will go a so called delegation, put forward by Jesus and Terfocto and accepted by a handful of soreheads and out-of-date politicians, eg;?ed on by the democrat Jour nal, the only claim of viilch so called delegation to ex istence is that they were regularly outvoted In the pri maries, that they then bolted and as bolters were re fused seats In the county convention, when they formed a rump convention, bastard by birth and nameless i" consequence, and wound up their iniquitous and unlaw ful existence by a nefarious effort to steal the name and emblem of the republican party of the county. That there is harmony In the republican party throughout the territory is due to the undeniable fact that the democrat Journal is regarded everywhere n the territory as a traitor In the republican camp. It has no Influence whatever with the republican papers of New Mexico, all of which know and resent Its treason. So completely Is this the cuse that for months the trait orous sheet has found no endorsement in its course out side of the democratic papers of the territory. Not a republican paper In New Mexico has followed the lead or the Albuquerque democrat Journal or endorsed Ha attacks on everything republican in the territory from precinct committeeman to delegate In congress. If the terlrtorlal convention at Los Vegas shall give the least crumb of comfort or shadow of recognition to this spawn of the democrat Journal also known as the Armijo-Romero Insurgents the way will be opened for the disruption of the party In every county where office seekers can be found to work on the plan of rule or ruin. But thia laBt line of discussion Is useless, for It ia too absurd to Imagine that the territorial convention will think of auch a thing for a single moment. COMPLIMENT DESERVED The election of Harry F. Lee, of Albuquerque, as secretary and trsasurer of the Sheep & Wool Growers association of New Mexico, was a commendable act on the part of the executive committee which had this mat ter in charge. Mr. Lee is one of the rising young citi zens of Nw Mexico, who has for several years been the trusted and efficient secretary of the sheep sanliarj board and has pel formed the important duties thereof in a most satisfactory and efficacious way.- He is com petent, reliable and - experienced, and will do his full share towards making the work of the association what It should le. namely, a benefit to the commonwealth and to the reat industry Involved. Sheep raising and wool growing. It Is estimated by these who ought to know, has brougbt between eleven 'and twelve million dollars into this territory during the years 1905 nd l'JOU. It therefore easily Btands very high in the support and well being of the people. That the organization and the work of the association will aid the industry jrtany fold can not be gainsaid, especial ly when It la considered that it has such an experienced and thorough-going business man and sheep raiser ab Hon. Solomon Luna, of Valencia county, as Its president ad auch a competent secretary as Mr. Lee. In addition its executive board consists of the right kind of men who can be depeuded upon to do everything polble to carry out as they should be the objects of the organiza tion. New Mexican. The morning ulcer gives this advice to the so-called delegates sent by Perfecto Armijo and Jesus Romero to the terlrtorlal republican convention at Las Vegas tomorrow: "Let the republican delegates from this county to the terlrtorlal convention stand firm in the right." You bet they will. Mr. Democrat Journal. The republican delegates will not only stand in the right but they will also sit in it. as members of the territorial convention; but. then, they will not be the Illegal crowd you had in your mind s eye a crowd having behind them not the least possible pretence to regularity or to representation of anything but their bosses, Perfecto and Jesus and a few other greedy office soekers and disgruntled soreheads but the regularly elected and certified delegation from the only republican conven tion which lias met in this city to select delegatus Lo the territorial convent iou. The morning paper pitcously appeals to The Citi ten. It says: "If The Citizen would only give us a icsl all the week." Doesn't the galled jade wince? No doubt it would like, to quote its own language, to set The Citizen "out on the desert and keep It there." But it can't be done. The Citizen is here to defend repub licanism from the ruthless attacks of just such self seeking, unprincipled and unreliable creatures as those which are hived in the Journal office. Of course the do not like The Citizen's course, but the more they bqueal the more The Citizen knows that Its probe hab opened another abscess in the rotten anatomy ol :hl enemy of Albuquerque, enemy of republicanism and en emy of New Mexico. The three tailors of Threadneedte street, London, who met and resolved, "We, the people of London," have been a ceaseless source of amusement ever since, but they will have to retire now before the superior claims of the morning gasbag. We, the republican party, cries the gasbag: the republican delegates, it exclaims of Its bantlings who' are going to Las Vegas on a fool's er rand. And all the time its republican party constats of the Democrat Journal and the. two boses, Perfecto and .lebus, anil the Uelegatea are, the chickens, hatched by this cabal. The funny man on the morning paper says that The Citizen stands for Kalavio Vigil. As Mr. Vigil Is not a candidate for office the asaertlon of the funny fellow is far fetched even for a paper noted for Its Inveracity. , But thlH much Is undeniable. Whatever may be waid against Mr. Vigil it can not be charged that he ever undertook to make of himself In a political convention a rrokH between a jumping jack and a hand-organ monkey. Nor can It be said that he ever set himself up as a teacher and had to be discharged for equal lack of abil ity ad attainments. Ias Vegas Optic of Wednesday said: "The A'bu auerque fiasco means a fight tn the county conven'ion down there and probably a fight In the territorial con vention here." Oh. no, not a fight, merely a disgruntled bellowing on the part of Tei-fecto and Jhiih and the me tno Journal. The democrats are thoroughly disgusted at the Armijo-Romero-Journal combine, because I bey were unable to deliver the gixids. VcnOCOXXXXXXXXXXX3C0X00 g CONTRAST DRAWN BETWEEN 8 CUBA AND PORTO RICO ooooxoocxxoock: If Cuba Is not a pleasant picture to look upon Jus' now, Americans can get a deal of satisfaction from con ditions, In Porto Rico. Cuba belongs to its own people. It has all the supposed glories and blessings ( of indo pence; It has the theoretical happiness that conies with self-government. Its people, appreciating this, have taken advantane of the divine right of shooting ench other, destroying property, and devastating the country. Porto Rico, on the other hand. Is a dependency ol the United States, a colony, if you please. A large ele-. ment of our people, sincere and good. In fnet they were very sure that they were more sincere and far better than the rest of us, threw a number of virtuous fits and spat righteous Indignation when Porto Rico was not per mltted, as was Cuba, to become an Independent repub lic. But while Culm is torn with Insurrection, which, whatever the immediate results, means feuds and bit ter personal Inutilities for years to come, with factions and hatred, suspicion and prejudice, Porto Rico is pros perous and thriving. Its people arc happy and content ed, while political, confidence and satisfaction In existing conditions have come with a sottled and Just govern ment. This did net result In an hour, but after seven years tt Is hore. Under Spanish rule tho island's exports never exceeded $12,(im,0lH. The first year under American rule they were but half that. But In 192 thoy reached the old hlghwater mark and increased $2,il,tM) a year In 1903 and 190-1, and last year were $23.o.i,mo, oi double the former maximum. Of this the United States takes three-fourths. Formerly the Imports equaled the exports; now they are $!,5nn,nu0 less. Then the United States sold to the island less than 3,imio,iiho In merchandise; now the imports from here amount to $19,imio,mio. This, however, is far from the limit of future possi bilities. The coffee fields which were ruined by the great storm of seven yeurs ago, are gradually being re planted, and coffee culture will- soon have its old im portance and the small land owner can again have his Itttle coffee field. So far the increase of production has been almost wholly In sugar and fruits. The people now all have employment; they have Justice In the courts; they have free schools; they have no fear of Insurrections; life and property are secure; the government has money for public Improvements and the future Is full of hope and good omen. Even In the vastly larger and far more difficult field of the Philippines there Is much progress and compara tive contentment. Even in that direction there Is rest for the eyes after viewing Cuba and a lesson In good, everyday, common horse sense which, after all, is the most enduring statesmanship. Duluth News Tribune. IOOXXGOOXXOOOOOOOC0XXXXXXXXt SKETCH OF THE EARLY LIFE OF ANDREW JACKSON X000000XX0CKXXXXOC0X00 The devoted mother, ambitious for her favorite son, sent him to the academy, while his brothers, Hugh and Roliert, followed the plow. Andrew was to be the preach er of the family, therefore Andrew must get book learn ing. The other sons wore to be farmers; no high school for them. , The clap of thunder which fell upon the VVaxhaw settlement when Tarleton struck Btiford and cut down his" panic stricken men,. 1.1.1 Andrew away from the high school and his brothers out of the earn field, and all three were roughly knocked aliout for a while as the armies tramped and fought in the CarolUias. But little Andrew was soon put in a place of safety by his moth er while she departed upon that mission of mercy from which she never returned. In n short while came the legacy from the grand father's estate in Ireland, and young Andrew Jackson found himself in possession of a greater capital than the vast majority of American boys have started life on somewhere between $1,50U and Biographers agree In stating that the young man squandered his inheritance in riotous living. This Is probably true. But it is a significant fact that hence forth in Jackson's career he never seems to havo suf fered for the lack of money. After tho payment to him of the legacy. In the eighteenth year of his age, we shall never see him again when he does not present the ap pearance of a well-to-do citizen. According to all ac counts he is found well-dressed, well lodged and well mounted gay in spirits and prosperous in outward seeming. He boards at the best tavern in Salisbury while be gives two years to the siudy of law. Patrick Henry was able to give but six weeks and Alexander H. Stephens three months to the same study; (hey were poor young men. and they were in a hurry to " get to work. Andrew Jnck Bon "carlred himself like a rich man's son," boarded at the Rowan house and leisurely read law for two yens, apparently not being in a hurry to gel to work. Wnen admitted to the bar he Is garbed in broadcloth and ruf fled shirt; he owns a splendid saddle hoi so. keeps a pack of hounds, has extra tine pistols and a new ritlo, made to order "by Yeomans of Charlotte"; is able to put'up stakes at horse races, chicken fights, dice throwing and card playing, and Is a leader among respectable young people In such society functions au are common to Salia bury and Charlotte Tom Watson in Watson's .Maga zine.
