among the intelligent and progressive people of the Southwest.
SOMEWHAT APPLICABLE TO SAN
The Las Vegas Optic is making a
gallant fight for progress and ad
vancement in the Meadow City. This
is certainly the case now in the mat
ter of subscriptions to the capital
stock of the company, whose object and
aim will be to construct an electric
railway from the Meadow City to the
town of Mora and thence to Taos. The
plan, if carried into effect, will bene
fit Las Vegas so greatly and this is so
apparent that certainly no need ex
ists for lengthy discussion. The citi
zen of the Meadow City who does not
help with might and main hurts the
place he lives in and himself.
In a recent editorial upon this sub
ject the Optic utters some truths that
are applicable to Santa Fe. In this
city unfortunately there are two
classes of people whose actions and
non-actions are proving of great det
riment to the city. One class consists
of the knockers, the backbiters and
the curbstone slanderers, and the oth
er of the fogies, some young and some
old. The latter can be reasoned with
and induced to join the procession of
progress. The venom, the envy, and
the Intense desire to injure their fel
low citizens of the first named are too
strong to be overcome; nevertheless,
the progressive, public-spirited and
loyal citizens must take hold and push
along with might and main. The Op
tic's editorial on the question is time
ly reading at this time and in this
place. The Optic says:
"There are a few people, a very few,
in this community who have made
small fortunes during their residence
here but are not disposed to do any
thing for the betterment of the town.
For instance, one man who is the
owner of at least $50,000 worth of real
estate in the city of Las Vegas, all of
lMch would be greatly enhanced in
vstyio if the "electric railroad from
Ii9 Vegas to Mora." should be built,
hasj indicated that he will only sub
scribe $500 worth of the bonds. It is
far from pleasant to call attention to
these things, but it must be drue.
"Las Vegas is goTng to progress and
grow. It has been at a standstill long
enough. The progressive business
men and the people generally are unit
ed as they have never been before.
They are going ahead in a determined
effort, to develop our great wealth pro
ducing resources, broaden our facili
ties for doing business and in time be
come one great and prosperous city.
And it may as well be stated here and
now, that if there are any old bar
nacles who think they can lie down in
the path of progress and stop the
wheels of advancement, they are mis
taken. They will simply be run over
and weeded out. The time has come
for every good citizen to help push."
WATER RIGHTS OF INTERSTATE
The National Irrigation Congress,
which will meet in Sacramento, Cali
fornia, early next month, will discuss
some questions of great importance
and moment to the irrigation districts
of the great -Southwest and therefore
especially to New Mexico. The sev
eral delegates appointed by the Terri
tory and by counties and cities should
therefore attend the gathering and
should take a leading part in its de
liberations and see to It that the great
and growing interests of the Sunshine
Territory in irrigation and water sup
ply as well as water rights, should
not suffer. Among the matters to be
discussed will be the one of water
rights of interstate streams, and this
certainly is of paramount interest to
New Mexico and to its neighbor to
the north, Colorado. Referring to the
subject the Pueblo Chieftain says that
the question of water rights on Inter
state streams will be one of the most
Important discussions at the coming
session of the National i Irrigation
Congress. Dr. Elwood Mead, who is
an authority on irrigation laws, is the
chairman of the committee which was
charged by the last congress with the
duty of reporting to the coming ses
sion, recommendations looking to the
settlement of questions that are con
stantly arising with reference to inter
state waters. Dr. Mead has been very
. active in bring this matter before men
who are prominently identified with
irrigation development, especially in
those States where the question of
interstate rights Is a serious one, and
1 without question the presentation of
his report to, the congress will preci
pitate one of the liveliest debates of
" the session. Among those who will
.' participate will be men who contend
t hat the national government should ex
ercise Jurisdiction over interstate
waters and others who advocate the
right of the individual states to the
control of waters within their boun
daries. Since this committee was ap
pointed the United States supreme
court has passed upon the now famous
Kansas-Colorado case, and this action
has given an added impetus to con
structive thought on this subject.
NEW MEXICO WILL GO IT ALONE.
Several of the newspapers of the
sister Territory are keeping up silly
and uncalled for attacks on the peo
ple of conditions in this Territory
Thoy are afraid that the joint state
hood question may again come to the
front and believe it good policy to
"take time by the forelock." In
these premifes they are very badly
mistaken. Joint statehood will not
come up during the Sixtieth Congress,
but the question of separate statehood
for New Mexico will be brought to
the front and pushed and that, very
likely successfully. The people of
New Mexico want none of Arizona
fliey have fully demonstrated their
capacity and fitness to govern them
selves and are perfectly willing to
let Arizona "paddle its own canoe."
Indeed, should New Mexico become a
state before Arizona, and this is very
likely to happen, Its Senators and
Representatives in the Congress of
the United States, will be found in aid
and support of the claims of Arizona
to become a sovereign state in the
Union. Referring to this subject, the
Albuquerque Citizen pertinently re
"Arizona papers are still saying
mean things about New Mexico and
declaring that Arizona won't have any
statehood if she has to join with this
Territory. There ought to be no quar
rel on that score. New Mexico is
just as anxious to secure single state
hood as Arizona but this Territory
showed gcod judgment in offering to
accent anything in the shape of state
hood. New Mexico is no more an
xious to be joined to Arizona than
that territory is with New Mexico.
When it comes to a comparison of fit
ness for statehood, Arizona will suf
fer. New Mexico is entitled to state
hood and Arizona isn't. She doesn't
want it bad enough to work for it."
Let there be the fullest light of pub
licity in the courts upon the transac
tions of the Territorial officials in
connection with the disposition and
sale of Territorial lands donated to
New Mexico by the United States.
The best Interests of the people de
mand that it be demonstrated whether
there were illegal practices or unlaw
ful or dishonest acts on the part of the
officials and ex-officials interested. If
such was the case it should be known;
if otherwise, this certainly should also
be known, in justice and fairness to
all concerned. There has been much
commotion, much smoke, much pala
vering and many charges have been
made in these matters. Let "the truth
There are no strings on the Santa
Fe New Mexican. In all matters that
affect the public good, Territorial,
county, city and precinct, this paper
will hew to the line, let the chips fall
where they may. This is the course
that this newspaper has pursued for
over forty years. Its only lapse was
for a period of three years, when cir
cumstances and the change in the
ownership of the company publishing
it, brought about its advocacy of
Democratic policies. This was during
the second Cleveland administration.
"A. B. Fall aud George Curry for
the United States Senate. They
would make a good team when New-
Mexico becomes a State and that is
the talk now. El Paso would like to
have a real live senator among her
assets and would be willing to see this
combination go through." El Paso
Well, the above is a little prema
ture, to be sure, but the people of the
new State, which is sure to come by
1910, may be pleased with the sugges
tion. Who knows?
The Democratic papers of the Terri
tory, and especially those of the Pecos
Valley, are opposed to statehood for
New Mexico at this time single or
joint although the chances for single
statehood will be better in the Six
tieth Congress than they have for
many a year. ,The stand taken by
these papers is probably more or less
influenced by feeding at the Hager-
man "bar'l." They evidently go upon
the motto to get all they can at this
time and let tomorrow take care of

JUDGE FALL'S APPOINTMENT.
The Silver City Independent is the
strongest and best Democratic paper
in New Mexico. Its editor is secre
tary of the Democratic Territorial
Central Committee, and in addition to
being a good newspaper man, is a
successful lawyer and also very well
posted on political affairs. Therefore,
the opinion of the Independent upon
the recent appointment by Governor
Curry of Judge Albert B. Fall as at
torney general is worth knowing. It
"Governor Curry last Monday ac
cepted the resignation of Colonel
George W. Prichard as attorney gen
eral and appointed Judge Albert B."
Fall of Three Rivers, Otero County, to
fill the vacancy. Judge Fall's appoint
ment was not a surprise, as it was
generally known that the new execu
tive would select him for the position.
Judge Fall's qualifications for the of
fice of attorney general are so gen
erally recognized as to make comment
unnecessary. He is a lawyer of great
ability, a close personal friend of Gov
ernor Curry, is thoroughly familiar
with conditions existing in the Ter
ritory, and the people of New Mexico
are fortunate in securing his services
in this Important position."

SECRETARY TAFT'S CAMPAIGN.
Secretary Taft has started on his
tour around the world and by doing
so has also opened his campaign for
the Republican nomination for the
presidency next year. In his speech
at Columbus, Ohio, a few nights ago
he voiced three of the policies he
favors. First, government control of
railroads, but not government owner
ship; second, control and supervision
of trusts, wherever such can be done
under the Constitution; third, some
revision of the tariff. The secretary
Is a man possessed of a big body and
of a big brain. He is a jurist of

brainy man any way you take him.
When he returns from his swing
around the circle, while the question
of who shall be the Republican can
didate in 1908 will not be absolutely
decided, it will' be pretty well fore
shadowed and If it shall not be Theo

will be "William II. Taft. 1
Attorney General Hadley, of Mis

to be elected, but the chances are
against him. There are still too many
hide-bound Democratic voters there.
