'ALBUQUERQUE EVENING 1 CITIZEN.
fAc.n row TUESDAY, FEBRUARY" IS, f07. THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN rubllohtd Dally and Weekl. By The Citizen Publishing Company V. & til UK RLE It, frenldmt W. T. McCHKHillT, Bunlnewa Manatrer. MO ll .MENTAL HYPOCRISY How utterly hopeless the antl-republlcnn organ of this rlty has become. In Its fight upon everything repub llcan, can plainly enough be ween In Its silly falsehood and floundering efforts at abuse of republican leaders. Its latest efforts In these lines Is to be found In Its having thrown a fit because the republican house deemed It wise to pass a bill against attempts at official bribery. It declares the bill to be a great Insult to the legls lators themselves as well as to the territorial officials. The legislators who passed the bill ought to be the best Judges as to whether they were Insulting their own In tegrlty, and not the blatant democratic organ which hn not ceased In Its Insulting tirade against the republican majority In the legislature, for a single moment since that body assembled. It has charged them with nearly every vice and crime known In Its peculiarly rich vo rabulary of billingsgate. That it should not become so excessively solicitous lest the republican majority should Impugn their own Integrity, can but expose Its hypo critical and nauseating lack of honesty or honor, or even common decency. The members of the leglsla tue are able to look out for their Integrity and to pro tect It even from the slanderous assaults or the uemo eratlc dally of this city. Then, too, the number pf times In which that same dally has charged New Mexico officials with bribing legislators, and New Mexico legislators with being bribed by the officials, sometimes with money and some times with office, would not come short of filling a very large volume. According to that paper Itself, Buch bribery Is possible; Indeed, It has sworn such bribery to have occurred time and again in the history of New Mexico. Hence, It may possibly occur In the fu ture, and as the legislature Is not enacting laws for itself, but for the future, the passage of this law '3 tlmeley and seemly. At any rate, such a law will pre vent all unprincipled papers like the antt-republlcan organ of this city, from befouling legislators and terrl torlal officials In the future, as they have done In the past, by their favorite charge of barter of office for coveted legislation. But to look at it from another standpoint. If the position of the democrats be well taken, why not say that every statute on the books against bribery In elec tions or of witnesses or Jurors, or against the commis sion of any other crime, is an Insult to the integrity o the commonwealth? Are the territorial officials and the legislators so high-toned, so Immaculate, so far above the ordinary common people, that it is an insult to enact laws making them amenable thereto for the commission of an offense, which If committed by an ordinary private citizen would subject him to convictloi for a felony? In short, the position of the opposition 's that the common "geezer," to use the favorite expres alon of the Journal, should be promptly convicted and punished for bribery, while the high-toned territorial officials should be Immune and free to use the political patronage at will, without let or hindrance or regard for decency. Such may never have been done in the past, may not be contemplated now, and may not be likely In the future. But one thing Is certain such a law would render its commission Impossible at the present and in the future. How much the morning paper opposes the law may be gathered from Its abuse of Mr. Holt, concern ing whom, it engaged in common, contemptible lying. It stated that Mr. Holt was removed from the office of dis trict attorney. He was never removed, was never asked to resign, and Is district attorney now. But then no one is surprised at the Intentional inaccuracies of the morn ing paper. t .,..' I NOMINATION BY ELECTION The Leavenworth Times addresses the legislature Pf Kansas on the question of direct primaries. Its re marks are so applicable here as well as there, that The Citizen quotes them In full. The Times says: In proceeding with its deliberations upon the direct primary the Kansas legislature Is already assured that the people of the state want a direct primary law. There has been no attempt to dictate what the nature of the measure Bhall be and the members are therfor free jto work out according to their own lights a law that shall be In every respect satisfactory. The result of the experiments with the direct primary In other atates will be an invaluable guide to them, and with its help they 'should be able to frame a plan of primary flections that will prove wholly adequate and accept able. Logically . these primaries should be held at the aame places on the same day and under the direction of the same Judges and clerks. This would reduce the cost of such elections to the minimum. But the purpose of the direct primary is to retain the Idea of party regularity, at the same time eliminat ing the bossiBm which has heretofore been so common, by allowing the people directly to make the nomina tions, and the party regularity will be destroyed unless in the cities the primary voter has previously been com pelled to signify his party preference. Whatever may be the other provisions of the direct primary law, it should contain one' requiring the state ment of party preference from each voter, and he should be denied the privilege of a voice In making nominations for any party other thun that which he has stated to be his choice. ALL SAME AS JOURNAL The Uoswell Hecord Is showing its kinship in pur pose and disposition, if not in blood, with the morning auiti-republlcan organ of this city. A more ridiculous falsehood or a more vicious effort to injure New Mex ico by slandering Its capital city, would be difficult to duplicate even from the maudlin utterances of the Albu querque anll-republkun organ Itfelf. than that which appeared in a recent issue of the Hecord. However, that paper differs from Its crony lu re In being avowedly democratic from top to bottom, while the Albuquerque organ is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Hut here Is what the llecord said: "It sounds like exaggeration, but a Kosuell man who recently returned from a trip to Santa Fe says the situation Is more desperute than a Chicago labor strike. He would not be surprised to hear of the as sassination of the governor, the attorney general or any other man who dares befriend these officials. Kvery stranger going to the town is under constant espionage by an army of detectives employed by the gang of graft era, and It Is known that there ate ex-convlcts and cut throats enough loitering about the capital to execute almost any crime that might be imagined. The Hec ord believes, however, that such talk is made at Santa Ke merely to frighten the friends of the governor and keep them out of town." es New Mexican: The hoUse nt r i..nt:il lv Thursday defeated Councilman SuUets' bill approprla ing me sum or IX.OUO for the construction of dikes the Hlo Ijrande. valley north of Albuquerque, from tl territorial irrigation fund, and did this in very sho order. The reasons for this action are given uh follow One, that this appropriation would he unfair and t-uultahle to other Hurts of ih iti,, i ,,,(.. .11.... the other that there as great doubt us 1,1 Its legality ana me power or tile assembly to make It. These reasons are strong enough to demand careful Investiga tion. The New Mexican favored the proposition at tlrst Klance, and, If the appropriation can legally bo made it Mtil believes this should be done. There Is consider able in the contention that there are many places in the in- and Hlo Grande valley north and south of Albuquerque that need similar protection, and that the appropriation f The morning antl-republlcan organ of this city claims that the republican organization of the legisla ture Is going to pieces, and Captain Llttlefleld Huppe Is reported to threaten that he will explode a bomb this week which will wreck the band wagon. As the war like captain was the last to climb Into the band wagon, he should beware that he does not hoist himself with his own petard. As to the organization's going to pieces, the vote overruling the governor's veto, of 32 to 8, one being absent, would seem to Indicate the over crowding of the band wagon rather than the loss of any occupants. NEW JERSEY, A STATE $8,000 for the particular point north of Albuquerque would be excessive and unfair, considering that the en tire amount available In the fund is only $13,000. Not withstanding this last contention, it might be well to re consider and make the appropriation If this can be done legally. The other point might be waived and other sections of the Hlo Grande valley might come In at a future time for their share. ooxcoxxxocxcoxocooooooc KENTUCKY AUTHORESS ON 8 J MARIE CORELLI'S VOTE IDEA $ xxooocockoxxoxxxkoooooc Among the many comments called out from Ameri can women by Marie Corelll's recent diatribe against woman's ballot, there has been none brighter than that of the Kentucky authoress, Mrs. Llda Calvert of Oben chaln, better known by her pen name of Eliza Calvert Hall. After quoting Miss Corelll's declaration that If a woman has "the mystic power to enthrall and subju gate man," she does not need the ballot, and her asser tion that she herself now controls fifty men's votes, Mrs. Obenchain says: We are all familiar with the picture of the hen pecked husband whose wife wants to vote ,but will not some cartoonist show us these fifty hypnotized English men meekly marching to the polls to execute the will of a woman who does not want to vote? When Sir Roger de Coverley, found himself "enthralled" and "subjugated" by that widow with the finest hand In the country," he still retained enough common sence to realize his condition, and aptly described himself as a "captivated calf." A woman has a right to influence a man's political views by appealing to his reason, but to enthrall and subjugate a man by appealing to his senses, and to send him thus befuddled to the polls is to make of him captivated calf." Think of Miss Corelll and her "captivated calves," and then think of a husband and wife in Colorado walk ing to the polls side by side, one voting the democratic ticket, the other the republican, and each respecting the other's right. Wouldn't you rather be the Colorado man than the captivated, subjugated English calf? As a matter of fact, however, we think Miss Corelll Is drawing on her Imagination when she says there are fifty men whose votes she can direct. Woman-like she over-estimates her "mystic power to enthrall and subju gate" men. Kentucky women understand the art of enthralling men, but I never knew one who could make a democrat vote the republican ticket or vice versa. Some years ago there was a very exciting election In Kentucky. One of the candidates was bitterly oppos ed to many women. One of these was lamenting to a friend that she could not get her husband to promise not to vote for the objectionable candidate. "Lock up all his clothes on election day, so that he can't go to the polls," suggested the friend. "Lock up his clothes!" was the reply. "Why he would go to the polls naked!" This man probably voted wrong, but at any rate he was not a "captivated calf." The franchise is not given to a man in order thut he may express the political views of his wife, his sister, or his maiden aunt. It is conferred on him that he may express his own views; and, as this is a republic, "a government of the people, by the people, for the peo ple," and as women are people, the wife, the sister and the maiden aunt should have the right to express their views without the preliminary performance of subju gating some weak man. Miss Corelll, an antl-suffraglst, argues for a woman's right to express her opinions through a man who gives up his own opinions In order to express the woman'B. I, a suffragist, argue for a man's right to express his own opinions unsubjugated and unenthralleil hv nnv woman. Curious? Not at all. A woman w ho respects her own rights will always respect a man's rights, and a woman who boasts that she can direct fifty men's votes In any way she chooses, would be likely to make her husband wash the dishes and tend the baby whilo she wrote a Romance of Two Worlds."

Hooker T. Washington tells about It In The World s Work. "It Is not enough," says he, "to get the sous and daughters into the Institute. Something must be done for the fathers and mothers if th comlitim. r th race Is to be bettered. This problem Is being solved In a large measure by the Jesup agricultural wagon, made possible through the generosity of Morris K. Jesup. "The wagon Itself and the harness were made at the school by our own students, and two large mules were purchased. The outllt Includes different kinds of plows and planters, a cultivator, a cotton chopper, a variety of seeds, samples of fertilizers, a revolving hum, a butter mold, a cream separator, a milk tester and other appliances useful In making practical dem onstrations. "The wagon method has the immense advantage f going direct to the man in the Held, where Im proved methods can be adapted to his particular condi tions. We carry our implements out Into the field. After he has plowed a few furrows we hitch un on f our improved plows. " "That may be a good plow for some he says, iuit or me, give me that old scutter.' "We use our plow for a few minutes uml then sk him to compare the amount of work done and he kind of furrow. After that we can hardly get away from him. They often try to borrow our Im plements, and one man Insisted that we remain until he could plow over his cotton. "When we come upon a man slowly plowing out his cornfield, we take out the cultivator and show him hat he can make seven furrows where he Is making me, ami with the same animal. So convincing have Hies,- demonstrations been that many have at once bought Improved implements. It generally means that oys between the plow handles may stay in school onger. "We often find the farmer's wife and children out the Held s.-atterlni; fertilizer. A distributer taken from our wagon shows him that there is a quicker and a better way, and his family may at the time be trea do something else. "The operator in charge of the Jesup wagon pays as much attention to the kitchen as to the field,' for ex- lerlence has shown us that the wife must be taught as well as the husband. "After the Jesup wagon has In this way made the rounds of the large and small farms of a community a mass tneetlng is held in the open air at some cen tral point."
