TERRITORIAL COUNCIL The Citizen is indebted to the New Mexican for the. ! following resume of the personnel of the s..on to-Doas-' Mmbted New Mexico territorial council. It will doubt less be of interest to all the readers of The Citizen: The council of the thirty-seventh legislative assem My of New Mexico will compare more than favorably mith an, similar body elected this year in the United States even In the most populous and richest of the ; Btates.' Its twelve members are as follows: First dis trict. Colfax and Union counties, M. B. Stockton, stock raiser; Second district. Taos and Mora. Malaqulas Mar tines, stock raiser and farmer; Third district, Rio Arriba and San Juan counties, V. O. Sargent, merchant and stock raiser; Fourth district, San Miguel, Chas. A, Spless, lawyer; Fifth district. San Miguel. Guadalupe and Quay. ' James S. Duncan, railroad contractor and capitalist; 1 Sixth district. Santa Fe and Sandoval couuties, E. A. ' Mlera, .merchant, stock raiser and farmer; Seventh d a .' trlct, BernaHllo. Joseph F. Sulzer. capitalist; Eighth dis ' trtct. Valencia and McKlnley. Jacobo Chaves, merchant and atock raiser; Ninth district.-Socorro and Siena. ' Harvey B. Richards, merchant; Tenth district, Luna. Grant and Dona Ana, W. D. Murray, banker; Eleventh district, Otero. Lincoln and Torance, Carl A. Dalles, i banker, merchant and stock raiser; these are all repub .. Jlcans. Twelfth district, JMdy, Chaves and Roosevelt, .1 ; O. Comeron, lawyer, democrat. . Of these, Chas. A. Spless has served three terms the council of the assembly and so has James S. Duncan. Malaquis Martinez has served one term lu the house and four In the council. M. B. Stockton has served two ' termBln ihe house; and Carl A. Dalies three terms, one as speaker. They are representative men, all in good circumstances, well acquainted with New Mexico public ' affairs, stairghtforward and honest. - The fact . that v ' there are hut two lawyers in the body will not hurt, quite the reverse it may do good. For the presidency of the council, the New Mexican has brought out Chas. A. Spelss. who stands at the head of the list in point ot legislative service and experience. There is not a Byn in the body who does not understand, speak and read the English language. The bugaboo of "Mexican domina. Hon" cannot be invoked In this Instance, at least. Out of the twelve there are but three natives of New Mexico of Spanish-American descent. FRAUD IN FRISCO . . Here in one of the accusations which. the San Fraj- i Cisco Chronicle of whose simon pure republicanism ' there Is no possibility of doubt brings against Abe Ruef . LVAtinlun.. tuiDU .It K!l V 3 ' "One of the things which has convinced everybody ih r.nu prtrriintlon of our citv Kovernnient Is Ruef's , gross violation of the election laws In appointing none lmt his own creatures on the election commission, and, i mo far as could be managed, on the precinct election boards. The law on this subject is explicit. Each party la entitled to be represented on all llmwe bodies by rep reaentatlves who in good faith belong to those parties, unit wilt falthfullr guard their interests. The liiiiu-hon ' ored custom is to make these appolntmi-ntg upon the recommendation of the governing bodies of the different parties. From the first Ruef has ignored that. He, or his dummies, have assumed to be the jude of men's uolltics and under the guise of 'republicans,' 'democrats' or unlon labor' men, has appointed his own satellites i were reallv Ruef men and notliliiL' else. That is of Itself Drlnia fucle evidence of Intended fraud most of ' ' us think It conclusive evidence." The chief democrat organ of the territory ;iy lliut charges of fraud anil corrupt Ion in I he recent elect ion have been mad openly by the democratic lerriioriiil managers. This is more than ihey did durum the cam paign, when in a manner that would be a di.-tu'ace l thugs of the New York slums, they went aUout in tin. dark to stub Delegate Andrews in the hack. Let us by all means Iffcvo the constitutional conven tion. The delegates have been elected by the people, they are well qualified for the position, and Innumrable benefits will accrue to the territory from their labors. ooooooocKooooa 5 IS THIS A CHRISTIAN 8 NATION OR PEOPLE? 000000X)00XX0OOOOOOOCKX0XX It. is of course, well known, an old familiar truth that strictly speaking, there Is not a Christian nation, power, government, or people on this globe. And if there be among all the people of all countries one man who, Judged by his fidelity to the precepts of the Master, Is fairly entitled to be called a Christian neith er his name nor his habitation has been made public. While It is true that the nations called Christians are the lending powers of the earth, and that the story or Christ and His religion has been and still remains the most wonderful, the most glorious story ever told, yet It is undented and undeniable that In order to Insure domestic tranquility and preserve their territorial In tegrity those nations feel compelled to set aside Chris tianity, to employ brute force, and to kill not only the heathen, but "Christian brethercn.' The greatest of all human Interests is war. It absorbs more of hu man effort, both Intellectual and physical and more of human life than an, other Interest. And in spite ot the progress of ideas that make for peace, the cost of war of armies, navies, fortifications, and pensions is on the increase. It is deemed indlspensible to net lonul safety and honor to be prepared for war. The sentiment that we must have a great navy is almost universal. As the whole tenor of the Gospel ot Christ Is in sharp conflict with all this, does it not follow that not only are there no Christian nations, but that antl-Christlan doctrines and j-racices are the chief Interests of the nations Call) I Christians? And If It be admitted that the employment of organized brute force Is an Indispensable national necessity, are ire not foreeil tn the conclusion that. It a imtrlntlc duty of government to persist enly violate ' the most solemn and Impressive teachings or the Prince ot Peace? Granted that the human race Is trending up ward and that is truo beyond question It Is per mitted us to hope that there will come- a time, a long, happy time, when human conditions will lie such that a government based on Christianity will be possible, It Is well enough to long for the coming of those con ditions, but It is folly to assume that they are here. Washington Post. t X)OOXXXXXXXC0XKX)XKXX0XCKX CANNOT TEA BE GOOD CROP IN NEW MEXICO? 00OCK00CKXC0XXXXXXXX0 Will the tea plant prosper in the United States? As the reader may already know, tea, like lettuce or potatoes, is a general term, covering several sorts or varieties, writes Rodney H. True in the American -Monthly Review of Reviews for September. Experi- incuts have been carried out on a practical scale at Summerville with many of the most important sorts. a cnoice vjninese sort, uragon s fool tea, Known in its own land from the celebrated garden furnishing It has proven very successful. This, Is a hardy plant, ol mcdl'im size, good yielding capacity, and capable of be ing made into excellent green and . oolong teas. It averages from 250 to 300 pounds of dried tea per acre annually. A second and very useful sort is a variety widely introduced into this country many years ago, L'imivn na Afianni tfvlirlfl tu a 1 u T-ir. . varlnlv thought to have been produced by crossing the large- leaiea Annum, iurni anu me vuiuene. i nis lea, pel naps partlty because It has long been in this country, grows very rapidly and produces, when at its best, as high as 500 pounds of -dried tea per acre annually. The leal nas a cneuncai coiiainueni uunering rrom me uniuese variety in such a way as to make It best fitted for the making of black tea. Another very valuable variety for this country comes from thehlll country of India, and is called after the city of the region, Dnrjeeling. Darjeellng tea gives an average yield of 350 pounds or more per acre and has the valuable property of be ing convertible Into black, green or oolong tea. Kan gra tea, another valuable north Indian hill variety, and jitpaueHe ica, ciituauitrrizeu uere uy lis ruiuer suuiuy yieia or very nign quality, nave given goou results With Formosa and Ceylon varieties from high altitudes (aiiove ti.uiiu teet), no convincing tests nave yet neen concluded. It is clear that Summerville is too cold foi the Ceylon plants from lower altitudes. Since this variety is a great producer, success in growing It is much to be desired, it is cearly demonstrated that soil nnit rtlmntA arn fnvnruhlo ti. tht Inviirinnt develon ment of several of the most, useful varieties of tea, and he production at summerville fully equals and, hi some cases, surjHisses the production on nke areas in the Orient. The raw material of A tea industry may, therefore, be produced in favorable parts of the South The plant will grow. A further experiment, now being curried on In Tcvsh, near Wharton, by the department of agriculture, In co-operation with Mr. A. P. Borden, will indicate how far success at Summerville Is due to local conditions. The American Tea Growing company. nrlvHtrt concern with which thu flenfirtmpnt lu also in co-operation, has gone into the production of tea commercially. In Colleton county, South Carolina. itu plantations have not been completely plucked, but the indications are distinctly iavorauie, uranting a con tinuance of favorable conditions in Colleton county. we. shall soon have tea in a coastal situation.
