"TRELFORD, PRISON EXPERT" Under the heading, "Trelford, Pris on Expert," the Albuquerque Citizen discusses the recent action of Acting fiovernor James W. Raynolds In the removal of Arthur Trelford upon proven charges of great cruelty and severe ill treatment of convict!?, in an editorial containing very strong language but certainly language to the point and borne out by facts and circumstances. The great majority of the people of the Territory and certainly of those who have followed the case In the Xew Mexican and decent and respectable newspapers generally are in accord with the views expressed by the Citizen and hereto fore and now by this paper. The edi torial reads: "The penitentiary investigation took a rather unexpected turn as an nounced In the Citizen yesterday, when Colonel Minus forwarded to the President, a complete draft of the tes timony as to the manner in which Thelford treated the convicts under him. "Colonel Minus Is disinterested ex cept that he believes In humane hand ling of convicts under all circum stances in so far as possible. All that he desires is that a man shall be in charge of the penitentiary who pos sesses a little humanity. "The Morning Journal In an effort to defend Trelford is making a spec tacle of itself. A paper that has de clared for good government, etc., as rabidly as has the Morning Journal, ought to lift up Its voice in a bitter denunciation of such prison methods as Trelford uses. "If the Morning Journal believes so sincerel In reform' (which it does not) it ought to stand for reform and op pose everything vicious and corrupt. That is, the Morning Journal should do so, If it desires to secure public confidence. It has no ammunition to use in Trelford's defense for Trelford himself appears unable to make a de fense. "There can tie no defense for a man who will hang a convict up by the wrists for seventeen days, then slap him in the face as he swoons from pain and exhaustion. "There can be no defense for a man who will force a convict with a broken arm to work at shoveling coal. "There can be no defense for a man who surrounds himself with a set of bullies and allows one of them to chain a prisoner fast to a cell door and beat him In the face with bare fists. "There can be no defense- for a man who strikes an unconscious negro with a club in order to revive him. "There can be no defense for a man who starves, bull-dozes and beats con victs for the sake of saving a few dollars a year in order to make a rec ord and bolster up a fake reform ad ministration. "He is not of New Mexico nor of the West. He was brought here by an Incapable Governor and he has been just as much of a fizzle as the balance of the reform outfit. "He has made no friends in New Mexico and would not make friends here because he is not the sort of a man the Southwest needs nor the sort she adopts.- The least the morning paper could have done would been to have remained silent on this mat ter, but It has seen fit to come out in open support of handling our con victs like a set of dogs worse than most docs are treated. However, if the Morning Journal wants to defend Trelford In the face of public opin ion, that is the privilege of the Morn ing Journal. "It is a pity the story of Trelford's methods went to Washington. Such things only tend to give the people of the East the impression that New Mexico is filled with a lot of unregen erated savages. We are being bur dened with the sins imported by our so-called reformers from Russia and elsewhere. The Acting Governor should simply have removed Trelford as auietly as possible and thus saved New Mexico an additional black eye from the reformers. As far as an Im partial hearing of Trelford is con cerned, the Acting Governor did not act up to the precedent established by his nredecessor Hagerman. Had he done so, he would have ordered the attorney general to conduct a secret investigation, after having removed Trelford and he would have refused Trelford a hearing of any sort what soever. "That the Acting Governor In tended and did act justly, fairly and in good faith Is shown by the fact that Trelford and his attorney were both allowed to be present and to cross examine every witness. "The Citizen is glad the Morning, Journal has gone on record as favor ing Trelford's Russian prison metli otls. It simply shows more clearly, the reform ideas of that paper and its ability to contort the truth to suit its ends. The sooner the axe la an plied to Mr. Trelford's official head, the better the public will like it. Rus sian prison methods do not go in New Mexico." A MORE SATISFACTORY CONDI. TION. The railroad managers of the coun try have evidently thought a good deal over the railroad situation lately and have come to the conclusion that matters are not near as bad 'as they might be. Indeed the railroads are not losing any money; their business is increasing constantly, and the fu ture looks bright. Their managers are becoming more and better ac quainted with the recent Congres sional enactments for the control of certain railroad affairs by the Inter state Commerce Commission and they are finding many more beneficial points than drawbacks. In discuss ing this much more favorable aspect of railroad affairs the Pueblo Chief tain is of the opinion that it was quite a rude awakening, but since the rail roads have learned that they must obey the law the same as any other corporation or individual the railroad situation is taking on a more roseate hue. Railroad men. as well as men of affairs In other lines, are agreed that the railroads are looking up. And not one of them character izes the situation as uniquely as does M, E. Ingalls, former pres ident of the Big Four system. Mr. Ingalls says: "The reason is that the railroad people have finally gotten so they can wake up in the morning and think of President Roosevelt without having nervous dyspepsia or stage fright, and that helps a good deal. It was this way. For some time the rail road men were afraid the President was going to swallow the railroads or confiscate them. Now they are be ginning to find out that it is not so bad as that, and a more healthy con dition is the result." The whole situation is contained In the fact that the railroads have come to realize that they must obey the law. While In many cases their obe dience i being yielded somewhat re luctantly, It is nevertheless effective in creating a more wholesome situa tion. As Mr. Ingalls suggests, the fact that they must obey the law will be a good thing for them. Not only will they know what to depend on, but the patrons of the roads will have the assurance that they are receiving equal favors with their competitors, and it will operate to bring about a more stable condition in busines and industrial affairs. SOUTH SANTA FE COUNTY SET TLING. South Santa Fe County is settling with a very good class of people, and during the last twelve months about one hundred homestead entries' have been made in that secdon. The new settlers are mostly from Oklahoma, Indian Territory, Missouri and Kan sas. They have faith that they will be able to raise good crops of wheat, vegetables and feed stuff. The town of Stanley has been started with good prospects to become a populous and well to do place, especially as the supplies, coke and coal for the San Pedro mining camp and the Santa Pe Gold and Copper Mining Company, and the copper output from there will be freighted to and from Stanley. The more prosperity and business there is in south Santa Fe County the more beneficial to this city and the merchants and business men of the Capital cannot do too much to secure a growing business of that section. This city is the natural point at which the people of south Santa Fe County should do business and if this is not done it will be the fault of the merchants and business men here. The Santa. Fe Central Railway will do all in its power to facilitate and aid towards securing and holding the trade of that section In this city. This good opportunity to increase business should not be lost by the commercial interests of the Capital. on the uutsldo of the page we said nothing, but the article reproduced be low Is beyond forgiveness: '"The town of'Snpder Okla though only a new town,4 has been twice visited day destructive cyclones, nearly destroyed by fire twice, and was recently visited by a severe hale Btorm that did great damage to the crops and town.' " "Tho Western Liberal, of Lords- burg, came out last week with a fine one column editorial on the saloon question. It ran all of one column and part of another. The editor of the News read nearly all of one and was near the bottom of the page whun some large type in an adjoining col umn caught his eye. It read 'Harper's Whiskey.' We did not finish the editorial." NEAT NEWSPAPER HUMOR Editor J. L. Newkirk, of the Pecos Valley News, published in tha thriv ing little town of Artesia, has evi dently a good deal -of newspaper hu mor about him. This is right well disclosed In his naper. For instance, the following two Items are not at all bad: "That fellow Ayres of the Kenria Record, is aulte a character, or at least his paper Is. We could stand his runninu part of the locals upside down and when he run a column rule About two and one-half Inches of rain fell In sections of Roosevelt County week before last. This rain- ful came at tho right time and farmers there report that they will raise good crops this season, This In a section that five years ago was a good deal of a barren waste and where it was not thought that crops without Irrigation could be obtained. It is being demonstrated by facts like these that the eastern part of New Mexico from the base line north ia not as arid a country as It was sup posed to be up to within a few years ago; on the contrary, many parts of it are now sections that will produce satisfactory crops of cereals without irrigation, but with a natural rainfall 'and a cultivation of the soil under the Campbell dry culture methods. Danny Macpherson's Albuquerque Morning Coyote Journal does no long er charge President Roosevelt with having committed "a great crime against humanity and decency in New Mexico" with having ruined the cause of reform in the Sunshine Ter ritory, with having allowed himself to be "bamboozled by the New Mexico gang of corruptionlsts and boodlers." No! Danny sees the handwriting on tho wall and Is scared. The gang that controls the sheet is also finding out that the people can no longer be fooled by its course of "greed, graft and venom." Its circulation fakes and its silly boastings are taken for what they are really worth and that amounts to precious little. The citizens of School Districts Nos. 27 and 30 in the town of Gallup are to vote on the question of a levy of an additional ten mills on the dol lar of taxable property for school pur poses on July 9th next and the chances are that the project will carry. If it does in addition with the regu lar five mills levy and the Territorial levy, the town of Gallup will be en abled to have public school terms of nine months during the coming year and to maintain good schools. That is the proper public spirit and one that helps to build up communities. Would there were more of this in the city of Santa Fe. An affidavit several columns long by former superintendent of the Ter ritorial penitentiary in his defense ap peared in Saturday's issue of the Al buquerque Morning Coyote. In the main the affidavit is like a copy fui nished the executive of the Territory, but in some instances it is garbled and mutilated. This causes no aston ishment, it being in accord with the usual custom of the sheet In which it was published. The expected will happen. The aimointment of Sheriff Marion Littrell of Colfax County to succeed Arthur Trelford, removed from the su nerintendency of the Territorial prison upon fully established charges of un due cruelty and barbarous severity in the cases of certain convicts at the Territorial prison, means much in the right direction and will bring about efficient and Jiut administration ot nenitentiarv affairs, strict and effec tive where necessary humane, and kind where advisable. The slanders and libels directed against Acting Governor James W. Raynolds and Attorney General George W. Prichard in the Albuquer que Morning Coyote Journal and by Interested parties have no effect. These officials can not be scared, they can not be bulldozed, they can not be cajoled, they can not be deceived, and they certainly cannot be blackmailed. The" Morning Coyote will have to com mence again with Us howls in another direction. El Fenix, a lively weekly newspaper published at Clayton, Union County, In the English and Spanish languagea, hits the nail on the head in the fol lowing editorial item concerning Dele gate W. H. Andrews: "In the various epithets that the opposing politicians lavish on Dele gate Andrews," there is not a single one which dares to apply to him the epithet of 'unfit,' because his record is so clear that it Infuses respect even In the most 'Impudent.'
