Self-government is the fundamen tal principle of a republic and richt of n free people. The Declaration of Independence was based on the "self- evident truth" that "governments 1''- tive their Just powers from the con rent of the governed." The whole fabric of American In stitutions, from the township to the nation. Is based on that fundamental idea. This precious right can properly be suspended only when conditions make Its exercise impossible. . Thus, when in w sections of country nre so sparse ly settled that they cannot support a regular form of self-government. some temporary expedient is justi fiable and a territorial condition is t the moment the P, o- to become self-govern- entitled to that rUht. provided.

In Xew Mexico this period of In .bllity passeil long ago. For years it has possessed every necessary iuall iieatlon for successful statehood. Xo other territory ever had such prep aration. History. New Mexico has been a part ol Un united States since 184S. Pea cable annextion was secured by the pmmisc by General Kerney e.f "civil govern ment, on n republican basis, similar to our own states." !!y treaty the people were promised "all the rights of citizens; of the 1'nited States." They have always desired to exercise those rights. As early as 1S50, relying on these pledges, they held a convention. adopted a constitution, elected state oMicers, a legislature and member of Congress. In July the legislature elected Weightnian and Cunningham as flenators, and they, with the mem- ter of Congress, proceeded to Wash ington. While on the journey they were met by tho Intelligence of the passage, on September 9, of the fam ous "compromise measure." which admitted California as a state and lelegated New Mexico to the condi tion of a territory. From that time to the present, attempts to secure ad mission have constantly been made.

ACCIDENT RISK WORKMEN IS BIG Government Officer Tells Why President Is Anxious, for Laws to Protect Laborers. Washington, Jan. 1. "Why has President Koosevelt been so Insistent upon legislation to increase the lia bility of employers on account of ac cidents Ito employes?" eald a govern ment officer who has been engaged in collecting statistics bearing upon this subject. "His reasons are sound, and I will tell them in a few words." "The principal and moving reasons is that 9 per cent jf all the dearths of males in the United Stated are caused by accident. "Nine per cent! "Ju-tt reflect what thalt means. Every working-man in this country tdkee an average 9 per cent risk on his total business capital every time he goes to work, his tmtal business cap ital being his physical pirwin. "The pnwident holds that t.iis i. not a fair division. "He believes the employment of the working-man ought to assume a great er propoiitlon of It. As It Is, you . know, tho workingman has to assume practically all of it. j "No other business under the t-un. involving so many .people, has to take a risk. There is always ome method "i dividing it. Hut with the laborer, j he ha. been asked to carry It all. Take those magnilieent fleets of steel steam ers on the great lakes. Do you sup pose they could liv at t.ieir present Insurant rates if 9 per cent of 'them v.ere lost every year?

But the workingman risks everything he has. "He goes to his toil every morning with a 9 per cent chance ever at his elbow that before night he will have lot all he has, including his life, and that his wife end children will be lert objects of charity. Hazard of the Workman. "This Is putting it strong, but we can get at the true perspective only by bringing that which we are study ing Into bold relief. It is a fact that some workingmen are required to take greater chances than others ;also that some have saved money, and will not leave their families dependent if the worst happens. Rut still we cannot get away from the figures, collected !y the United States census, which proe that the average risk of the working- man In this country Is 9 per cent. But, so far, I have talked only about tin; d-ath risk. The Tlsk of ac cident bringing calamity less than death is far greater. The exact per centage is not yet known, but as there are more than 2.000,000 non-fatal ac cidents in the United States yearly, we can safely approximate tho risk as very hitfh. let. whatever it Is. either of death or maiming, or only tempor ary disability, the workingman carries the bulk of it and the burden 4s un fair. It Is the more unfair because it Ls not nece-s-ary. It has been dem onstrated elsewhere that this risk is too high, and the .president ban only asked that we in rhe United States do no more than has been done abroad. Is there any .tenable reason, I ask you, why in our coal mines we should kill almost three times as many men per thousand as they do In EngliBh mines? Can you explain by what right '"O IE?
