ThS ft'EW KfcXfCAV PRINTING CCViPAKY Entered us Second Class the Santa Fe Postolllce. mutter Lit The New Mexican is the oldest news paper in New Mexico. It is sent to ev ery postolllce in the territory, and has a large and growing circulation among the Intelligent and progressive people of the-Southwest. Council Bill No. 22, introduced by i t!ia employment of about a dozen men, Hon. Malnqulns Martinez, providing for ; change i.t the time o election of jus tices of the peace and constables, has passed the Council and ought to pass the House. It is a measure that i en acted, will save expense and trouble. New Mexico has mo many elections and the lopping off of one or two annually will be hailed with satisfaction by the people.

Santa Fe will get fine public school buildings, but it will be manana. Eddy county will have to abdicate the honor of having the shortest name of any county in New Mexico to Quay county. If the foot and mouth disease has broken out in Mexico as reported, the Cattle Sanitary Board will have to get down to work to prevent the disease from coming across the border Into this territory. Oregon and Delaware legislatures are still in deadlock over the senatorial elections. If they would delegate their task to the New Mexico legislature this would be speedily and satisfactorily ac complished for them. The New Mexican believes that the people of this territory will have to content themselves with remaining in a territorial condition for the coming two years. "What cannot be cured, must be endured." King Edward read his speech from the throne on Wednesday. It made no difference that he didn't write it and that it was prepared by his prime min ister. He was the center of attraction nevertheless, and the world listened anxiously to his words. The old saying is that a sucker Is born every minute, but the Denver Republican in speaking of the victims of the get rich quick schemes recently exposed, says that in Denver a sucker is born every 30 seconds and born twins at that. 'l The annual appropriation bill will in all likelihood be taken up and consid ered during the coming week. This will be commendable and beneficial. It will give more time for thorough considera tion and will obviate the necessity of rushing it through during the last days of the session. Often there is danger in being in a hurry in legislative matters. As Governor Otero will undoubtedly sign the Roosevelt county bill and the Quay county bill will probably become law also, New Mexico will have twen ty-three counties Instead of twenty one very soon, and map makers will have to go to work again to revise the maps of New Mexico which were only recently altered to give Luna and Hc Kinley counties a place on them. The Elks at Albuquerque w ill build a line theater for the Duke City. If the Elks would undertake to do the same thing for this city it will be a source of great gratification all around and of undoubted profit for them. With the postolllce department looking around for a suitable building in which to place a modern, equipped postofflce, there is sufficient inducement for the Elks to begin the work immediately. A good theater is one of the needs of Santa Fe. THE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. The citizens of New Mexico have reason to be proud of the recent devel opment and present condition of the Agricultural College at Mesilla Park. The report to the Governor Just pub lished from that institution reveals a most satisfactory condition of things. The institution is enjoying a much lar ger attendance of students than ever be'fore, the enrollment for the past year being 307. The usefulness and scope of the college "have been gradually exten ded by taking up additional lines of work and strengthening old ones. The institution is fortunate in having se cured the detail of a United States ar my officer by the government at no cost to the territory for the Instruction required in military science and tac tics, of which all male students In the college receive the benefit. The report of the institution just published shows that the college is sticking closely to its field and that the young men and young women of the territory have advantag es for securing a. practical training and education in various useful lines which is of immense value to them. One fea ture alone is the strong course in dom estic science which the college offers to the young women of our territory and which includes thorough work in cook ing, sewing, and similar branches. The institution, however, is in serious need of -additional building accommodations. The support which it receives from the United States government has provid ed it with excellent equipment in the departments and It becomes t lie duty of the territory in receiving the benefit of this support io s-;e that ample iind proper accommodations are provided in the way of buildings to make this enuipmeiif of the greatest usefulness. The present lop I -iature, in the interest of the young people of the territory, should see to ll that the Agricultural College is no longer hampered as it now is by the lack of further building accommodations for the proper carry ing on of its work. This work is an admission that. - the rich Rio Grande valley is to receive na tional aid in the storage of the waste waters of the river from which the valley receives its name. HOPES. The Denver and Rio Grande railroad will regain its old time popularity by restoring its daily service on March 1. i The tri-weekly service is very unsatls- j factory not only to Santa Fe and the 1 people of Rio Arriba, Taos and San i Juan counties, but undoubtedly to the! railroad company itself, if the com pany will standard gauge its line and run a line from Fort Garland, via Taos, : Embudo. Espanola, Fojoaque and Te- j suque into Santa Fe, it will develop a territory, trade of which will eventually pay it handsome dividends. In Colorado they are bound to make elections honest and yet the most stu pendous election frauds have been per petrated in recent years right in Den ver. The latest innovation is a bill in troduced in the Colorado legislature prohibiting any one to go to the polls in a carriage or any other vehicle. This would mean the disfranchisement of cripples, of the sick and of the hi'.y, and that would result in a considarable cutting down in the vote of the Cen tennial state. The hack drivers are certain to oppose legislation of kind. nnl 'Hi , hA.- I I that Another attempt will be-made to turn the line and large graphite deposits south of Raton to a profit. New Mexi co is a veritable treasure-'house, and as soon as railroad rates are a little more favorable to this section there will be a great revival of niiiiin", of manufactur ing industries and in agriculture. A reduction in rates will ultimately re sult in great benefit to the railroads. At present it is only railroad rates that stand between Now Mexico and a phe nomenal growth in every direction that would naturally double and triple the freight and passenger business of its railroads. 1 When the uoclor leaves mvl says the case ia hopeless,' what remains to be done? Nothing, if the doctor's word is final, Much, if you will listen to the statements of men ami women who were once "hopeli ss cases " given up by doctors, and who were perfectly and permanently cured by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. i Nothing is more sure than that ' thousands of men and women with : diseased lungs, (A feri r r j obstinate coughs, A V , hemorrhage, ema ciation ami night sweats, have been j restored to perfect health by the use I of the- " Discov ery." win it cure you ? It has cured in ninety-eight cases out of everv hun dred where it was given a fair and faith ful trial. By that record you have only two chances iu a hundred of failure and ninety-eight chances of. being restored to perfect health. It is worth trying. Abram Brcer, Esq., of Rockbridge, Greene Co., I1L, writes: "My wife had a severe attack or pleurisy and lung trouble; the doctors Rave her -rrp to die, She onimeneod taking Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and she began to improve from the iirst dose, lly the time she had taken eifclit or ten bottles she was cured, and it was the cause of a large amount being sold here. I think the 'Golden Medical Dis covery' is the best medicine in the world for lunir trouble." FiuSK.

Scud 21 one-cent stamps for the book in paper covers, or ;-',t stamps for the cloth bound volume. Address Dr. R. V. I'ierce, Buffalo, N. Y. p'liah; and quasi-public charitable insti ttitldns. This is certainly doing well for a territory, which s, according to Senator Depew, an awful place to live in and a good place to leave. PROFESSIONAL CARDS Attorneys at Law. Omnibus bills are rather.-. popular these days but they very often have trouble. The omnibus public building bill is being held up in the House of Representatives by Speaker Henderson the same as the omnibus statehood bill is being delayed in the Senate. It takes the New Mexico legislature to dispose of omnibus bills speedily and without much friction. Chances are very favorable for the creation of the two new counties of "Rosevelt" and "Quay." The majority of the assembly believe that the time for their creation is opportune and is acting upon this belief; New counties as a rule, have proven or benefit to the commonwealth and there is every rea son to believe that such will be the re sult of the eases cited. France has 33 beet sugar factories. When it is considered that New Mexi co is one-half the area of France and does not have a single beet sugar mill, It can readily be seen that this terri tory offers a splendid field for invest ment in that line, especially since New Mexico has a better climate and a bet ter soil for sugar beets than has any part of France. The great Confucius, speaking of the effects of diligence, said the expecta tions of life depend upon diligence; and the mechanic that would perfect his work, must first sharpen his tools. This Is very likely the reason that a greater amount of business has not been transacted by the 35th legislative assembly during the first four weeks of the session. Despite their boasted advancement in sanitation and In enforcing quarantine laws, many eastern towns report epi demics of typhoid fever, scarlet fever, smallpox, diphtheria and other conta gious diseases and the ravages of con sumption which had been on the de cline for some years are again on the Increase. This is no excuse for New Mexico towns to be unsanitary and not to enforce quarantine regulations, but It demonstrates that New Mexico being comparatively free from epidemics and contagious and infectious diseases des pite laxity In sanitation has great rea sons to be thankful and to boast of Its wonderful climate, Its antiseptic air and glorious sunshine that are potent enemies of disease germs. "' FOR SPECIAL ATTENTION BY THE LEGISLATURE. The Carlsbad Argus, In a recent issue, makes the following sensible and time ly comment upon the work of the Bu reau of Immigration: Along this lino of appropriations for future works f;r:r. vhlch New Mexico as a whole is to reap a rich reward, The Argus desires to call the especial atten tion of members of the legislature to the Territorial liureau of Immigration, In all the past history of the United States the time was never so fitting for placing lh merits and advantages of the weste;,! country before the people of the east and north, as just now. The people of those sections are looking westward for homes and places for in vestment. The state or territory which enlists their attention, induces a visit, and then locate them by reason of the advantages it offers, is the one which will the most rapidly progress. To do this it must be alert and enterprising, verily proclaiming what it has to offer from the very house top. As a medium far placing New Mexi co's interests to the fore the Bureau of Immigration has amply demonstrated its competency. The Pecos Valley sec tion numbers in its towns and upon its rich lands hundreds of citizens who were first brought to a knowledge of the goodness of this good land through the instrumentality of the Bureau of Immigration. The same is true of ev cry section of the territory. There is no method of computing the great benefit resulting to the territory by reason of the works of the board the past year. The Argus has, In a measure, personal knowledge of much of the work clone, and it wishes to go on record that the work is of a nature that must not be allowed to languish for lack of generous support. The St. Louis Exposition next year is sufficient reason alone for increased liberality on the part of the legislature. Colonel Max. Frost, secretary of the bureau, has a knowledge of territorial conditions probably superior to that of any other man, and under his direction the bulletins issued have been of a na ture calculated to best put forward the particular resources and advantages of each Individual section. He is deserv ing of much commendation for his faithful and successful work. Be generous, therefore, gentlemen of the legislature, in your treatment of the Territorial Bureau of Immigration. Carlsbad Argus. In the line of territorial Institutions, educational, charitable and penal, New Mexico for its population, takes front rank .among all of the states and ter ritories of this union. The territory now contains the following: The Uni versity at Albuquerque, Normal Uni versity at Las Vegas, School of Mines at Socorro, College of Agriculture at Mesilla Park, Military Institute at Itos well, Penitentiary at Santa Fe, Nprmal School at Silver City, Insane A'sykrifi at Las Vegas, Deaf and Dumb Institute at Santa Fe. It has provided for a miners' hospital at Uaton, institute for the blind at Alamogordo, orphans' home at Helen and reform school not yet defi nitely located.
