STATEHOOD FOR WW MEXICO" We favor the Immediate admission of the territories of New Mexico ana Arieona as separate states In the Union. Republican National Platform.

The ever faithful press agent of a voters have alroaoy bem in Cochise county for the tlon. registered fail elec- The Republican territorial convention Is over but the aftermath Is not exactly according to the predictions of certain Democratic leaders, who ex pected to see discord and disruption follow one of the hottest campaigns 'Within party ranks for the candidacy of delegate to Congr. Instead of discord, there exists in the Republican party absolute unamin Ity of purpose and that purpose is to send W. H. Andrews back to Congress and to secure statehood for this territory at the next session of Congress. Anyone who saw the Republican convention at Santa Fe Tuesday, knows that It Is all off with O. A. Larrazolo. He is already defeated and there is no campaign tactic left which can elect him. The hot contest for the nomination In the Republican party was the ery best thing that could have happened. It brought out the people and it brought them out solidly. There was more enthusiasm In that Santa Fe convention than In any convention this territory has seen In a good many years. It was good healthy enthusiasm and when it was all over, the delegates to that convention united under the Andrews statehood banner and went In to win. In looking over the field in this county, The Citizen finds that the Andrews-statehood sentiment Is all powerful. This paper believes that An drews will receive the biggest majority tfi is county ever gave any delegate to Congress. Hut The Citizen urges the Republicans at this time to settle down to business and to work. While the Andrews-statehood sentiment needs no fostering yet everything should be done to get the largest vote pos aible and no time should be lost. Those who are In control of the county organization, are directly charged with this duty and to them the people will look for the big Andrews' ma jority. A Citizen representative, who attended the Republican convention, met delegates and citizens from all parts of New Mexico.- They all predicted a record-breaking vote for Andrews and statehood this fall. Even life-long Democrats are coming out openly with the statement that the thing most vital to this territory now, Is to elect W, H. Andrews and se cure Btatehood, then fight It out afterwards. Chairman H. O. Hursum, who will lead the Republican fight, ln the able speech which he made at the opening of the convention, brought out very trongly an I very forcibly, the point that It Is up to the voters themselves to secure statehood by sending to Congress a Republican delegate with a ma jority so big that the Republican leaders In Congress will have no cause to fear a Democratic state and wlil have no excuse whatever for any opposition to statehood. Months ago. The Citizen declared that the Issue In this campaign would be Andj-ews and statehood. The Citizen's statement at that time has been confirmed and no other- Issue will enter seriously Into the present situation. Bernalillo county will go to the front with a big vote for the cause if Its party officers get out to work, and every county In New Mexico should pot Its shoulder to the wheel. The present campaign la not so much one of party but It Is vital one of admission to the unlon and every opponent of the Republican nominee, opposes the very thing for which the people of New Mexico have fought for fifty years. To send Larrazolo to Congress at this time Is to go back fifty years. 3fte Dime llcvet in Germany According to the Durer Union of Berlin, German yeuth spend nearly 112,600,000 for 750,000,000 "dime novels" and "penny dreadfuls." says the New Tork World. The Teutonic mind being adapted to minute Investiga tion, the presumption Is that these figures are accurate. The UnIon thinks mat mucn youtnrul criminality Is due to "Single Shot Sam, the Sleuth of the Sierras." "The Dying Desperado's Dark Deed," or what may be the German equivalent therefor. This Is no new Indictment against dime novels. Since the first was pnuicu ccijf uujr wno run away irom nome in quest or aaventure was claimed as a deep student of this literature. True, sudden departure from home was not unheard of In the days of the Children's Crusade. True also. many respectable citizens absorbed dime novels ln their youthful days with no worse result man an occasional game of "Cowboy and Indian." The dime novel was purely a Btory of adventure. But so are Stevenson's Treasure Island" and "Black Arrow," Scott's "Ivanhoe" and many another classic. It dealt with Impossible conditions and the language was such as no man ever uttered. But critics have made a Bimllar charge against the -jeatner stocking Tales." in the dime novel virtue Is invariably rewarded and vice punished. One could be sure that the hero would marry the heroine In the last chapter after one or them had been ident'fled by the strawberry mark on the left arm, and the villain would make a hurried exit In a "bluggy" finale. The modern author out of sheer perverseness Is quite equal to bestowing a life sentence at hard labor on his hero after the heroine's elopement with the family but ler, whom she discovers to be an "affinity." As for the low-browed villain, he frequently ends his days In marble halls, an unrepentant victim to the e'lupun thumb.

Slibaf STORIES THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE It i 3aft, icff and Redgion Partisan newspapers over the country have been saying that Mr. Taft Is indifferent in the matter of religion, says the St. Louis Times. Mr. Taft Is an American of more than average personal goo, mess and the matter of his particular brand of religion is of small concern to the United States so long as the church and the state remain separated. Partisans who drag the religion of Mr. Taft or Mr. Bryan into this cumpaign will have only lost time and public Indifference for their efforts. Another group of meddlers has undertaken to say thnt Mr. Taft Is a very foolish person for devoting so much of his time to golf. Here, too, do we have a matter of no popular concern. Most people of good health take some form of exercise. Some of them like tennis others like walking and so on thrcimh a long list of out loor activities. It happens that Judg Taft prefer golf He Is not built for a sprinter nor for tennis: horseback riding is not good for the horse: he would not make much of a baseball player. Gulf seems to fit the Taft case ex i 1 1 y . If the opposition to the F.epubllcan candidate can find no more yerb-us objections to him than his leiiglon and the form of his dally exercise his election Is all but assured. , Paris has' a police wonder whose liuell gence agility and skill ln finding malefactors and eourage ln assault h.is rroieked rapturous plaud.ts.
