M., ) June, 15, 18!)0.y In pursuance of the authority conferred by a resolution of the constitutional con vention assembled in Santa Fe, N. M., in September, 18811, 1 hereby call a meeting of said convention to be held at the terri torial capital in Santa Fe, N. M., on the 18th day of August, 18110, at 10 o'clock in the forenoon. J. Francisco Chavez, President of the Const'al. Con. Di rinu the Democratic administration, from 1885 to 1880, the expenses of the territorial prison amounted to $52,000 per annum. During the first year under a Republican regime, from March 4, 1889, to March 4, 1800, the expenses, with the same number of prisoners, were !fy,000. It is plain to any person who can read and understand that the management under the Democratic administration was dishonest, and the management under a -JUU-. - -1- oI!An a lirmpnt During three and a halt years of the Uoss boodle administration of the terri torial penitentiary there was received from the labor of convicts and the feeding of United States prisoners the sum of $7,500. During the first twelve months of the present Republican administration from March 4 1889, to March 4 1890, (there being about the same number of prisoners in the institution year per year, from 1885 to 1S90) there was received the amount of $8,000, from the same source. Facts are facts and these facts mean that the present administration of the terri torial prison is honest and economical and efficient, and that the Democratic administration under ex-Gov. Ross was dishonest, extravagant and inefficient. The Farmers' alliance is making it right warm for the blue blooded confederate aristocracy in South Carolina. The horny handed sons of toil are getting tired be ing bossed by a lot of dudes, who bank on nothing but their alleged blue blood and confederate records. If the land court bill is defeated, the people of New Mexico must remember that the Democrats in congress, urged thereto by the local Democratic bosses and ex-ofiiceholding gng brought about its defeat. POWELL'S SCHEME GONE GLIMMERING. The western members of congress have scored another victory in eliminating from the sundry civil appropriation bill the item allowing Major Powell's geological survey $720,000 for continuing the so called survey and location of w ater stor age reservoir sites. It were far better to have nothing whatever done toward pro viding water for the arid lands through congressional action than to have Major Powell's impractical ideas govern and fail, for fail they certainly would. Congress should now begin anew if it really intends to do anything for the western people in the matter of aiding in the reclamation of arid lauds. Possibly it would be well not to attempt at this late hour to do anything during the present session, but instead the agricultural department might be em powered to designate several western men of acknowledged experience in such matters to canvass the field and formu late gome practical plan for congress to reservoir ernes nuruui urmg rtfuef; uof is it at all likely that congress will ever ap propriate money for building reservoirs. Congress may decide to provide an irriga tion commissioner whose duty it shall be to co-operate with state and territorial commissioners in advancing the interests of the arid lauds, and then, provided it donates the public lands to the states and territories, private enterprise, under cer tain legislative restrictions, may take hold and solve the problem. This is the only prospect for a practical treatment of the subject that now seems either possible or probable. HE OUGHT TO HAVE KEPT HIS MOUTH PHUT. Louis Lut., chairman of the board of sanitary commissioneis of this territory, attended a recent meeting of the sauitary commissioners of Colorado at Denver the other day. f course he had to talk, and as usually, he talked too much. He told a Denver News reporter that the losses of cattle in New Mexico during the past winter and this spring and summer were 20 per cent. And this is the way in which he boomed and ad vertised the resources and conditions of New Mexico, as given by tho Denver News : "Mr. Lut. stated that, although New Mexico has irrigation ditches, it has no reservoirs and very little water, and there has been no agricultural development for several years. Below Koswcll, in Chaves county, a ditch 100 miles long is now under process of construction. The outlook for agriculture is not at all en couraging." "In regard to our admission as a state," said he. "the Democrats are opposed, and the proposition would be voted down if submitted to tne people, we neueve me territory to be too poor to support a state government. Ten years ago we had 100, UU0 population, and it is not probable that it has materially increased." Mr. Lut.' statement to the New s shows him to be either an ignoramus or some' thing worse. Take his language as to the population of New Mexico, in ISSOjthe census tlien showed 110,558 inhabitants in New Mexico. As to his statement that there has been no agricultural develop ment during the past few years here, the man is absolutely off and does not know what he is talking about. Ltitz was one of ex-Gov. Koss' precious appointments ; nothing else to bo expec ted of him and, of course, that is the way he talks about the territory, which he, unfortunately for it, happened to repre sent, or rather misrepresent in an official position, and at a time when the territory paid his expenses. It seems high time that the sanitary commission was reorganized and that some men having the interests of New Mexico at stake and of average intelligence be placed thereon. At present the com mission Beems.to.be a sort of close cor- some salary for doing nothing ; goes off to Mexico on jaunts and enjoys the lux ury of railroad passe3 and more than likely charges mileage besides. A little shaking up of that commission would be of benefit all around. Let us have it, Tue people of New Mexico must not forget that under the Koss boodle admin istration, from 1885 to 1S80, when this territory was cursed with corrupt judges and dishonest federal and territorial court officials, tiie cost of running the courts was $100,000 per year; the people must not forget that, owing to wise and bene ficlal legislation pussed by a Republican legislature over the veto of that boodle governor, put into office by Grover Cleve land, and owing to a jusi and honest ad ministration of the courts, the entire ex pense of their administration for the first twelve months of the present Republican regime, amounted to only $0(3,000, in which sum there is included an estimate ol a deficiency in the pay of jurors, etc., of about $10,000; this means that under the Democratic administration the people of New Mexico were systematically and constantly robbed by corrupt judges and dishonest court officials. Will the senate pass the federal elec tion bill? asks a Democratic journal, op posed to free, fair and honest elections ; you bet, will a duck swim? A SPECIMEN LIE NAILED, It is not the custom of the New Mex ican to take up and answer any charges made by the Democratic papers of the territory. In the first place this jsmrnal does not believe in newspaper or personal rows flaunted about in newspaper col umns, and in the second place the charac ter of the Democratic papers is so well known and so very little credence is given by honest and well meaning citizens to the slanders and falsehoods propagated by them, that it is not necessary. Be sides it is not often that the truth can overtake a lie. But.it is well, once in a while to show up the conduct of these sheets. This time the New Nexican does so, but does it not even of its own volition, but at the instance of several Democrats, who do believe in fair play. The instance is the following : A Democratic weekly sheet issued in this city and called the Sun contained the following last Saturday : Nepotism is again cropping out. Col lector Hughes has awarded the contract for hauling away the ashes and other re fuse from the federal building to his brother. Evidently it is in the blood. The facts in the case are simply these : The bids for hauling away the garbage, etc., were opened at noon on June 30 last by the then collector, J. P. McUrorty; the bid of Dudrow & Hughes was the low est, namely $1.45 per cubic yard, being 5 cents per yeard lower than last year, and the then collector, J. P. McGrorty, made the award and recommended its ac ceptance to the secretary of the treasury. The office was not turned over to the new collector, Hon. L. A. Hughes, till after I THE SIEGE OF SANTA FE By the Insurgent Indians of the Pueb los in the Year 1680. Specially prepnred for the New Mexican MY PliOF. F. A. BAXDELIER, Member American Archa'ological Institute. (Continued.) The water supply was limited to two sources, the river and the springs of the Cienega. The latter embraced the w hole east, although divided into several groups, the chief one being those adja cent to the Palace on the northeast and east. Another group lay southeast ot tne catneurai. wens tnere were none. In fact the opportunities for water sun' ply had determined the location of the houses and public buildings. The par- roquiai cnurcn, convent anil annexes were built near to one cluster of spriuus. The palace and military headquarters near to another, and the houses of the people crowded as close as possible to the river bank. The fields extended almost exclusively on the south side, and the Indian servants dwelt n the patches which they cultivated; partly for their masters, partly lor themselves. The main acequia ran on the south side of San Miguel, but there was another, small er one, on tne norm bank also. IN VIEW OF AN ATTACK in full force by the rebels, the secur mg of drinking water, for the peo ple, the military and the stock, wae a vital matter. But the number of able bodied men (aside from the seventy or eighty soldiers) was far too small for a successful defence of the whole town. Although the latter was small, as far as regards population, it was disproportionately extended. To hold the river front was therefore impossible, and to defend the convent and paroquial church together with the Palace, equally impracticable. So Otermin fell back upon the Palace with its cluster of adjacent springs-. Against artillery that site would not have been tenable for an hour, but against Indians it could be made im pregnable almost; as long as supplies lasted, and the water remained secure. Therefore, as soon as Otermin was satis fied that he would be ASSAILED BY A I..l!l,l-:LV SCI'EKIOIt FORCE, he ordered the inhabitants of Santa Fe to retire to the Palaco with as much of their goods and chat tels Jis thev could conveniently save. Then he requested the priests. Fray crancisco uomezue la t aoena (guaruiau,' Frav Andres Durnn and Frav Francisco Farfan, to close the paroquial church, burning the I'lesseu Sacrament, and to retno to tho Palace also; all this was ex ecuted ere the rebels approached. Over 1,000 persons of all ages and sexes were gathered within the extensive quadrila teral, and its annexes on the evening of the 1th of August. The corrales were rilled with horses, and a lew cattlo anil sheep. There were too many of the lat ter to maintain them for any length of time, and not enough for adequate meat supply in case the siege should last. We have stated that the palace, with its annexes, Btore-rooms, and enclosures, occupied a much larger area than to-day. It was not only the dwelling of the gov ernor, the barracks of the garrison also belonged to the same complex. It bad two round towers, one on the southeast, the other on the southwest corner. The walls of the facade were provided with merlons and embrasures. Now loopholes were hastily opened in several places. Musketeers were stationed on the para pets and roofs, and the two small pieces of bronze were so posted as to command, from the foot of the round towers, the streets and the plaza. All these preparations had been euect- ed when, on the morning of the 2Jth of August, the Indians advanced upon Santa Fe from the south. They were lit tle else THAN A IIOWLlXa MOB, and their first step was to begin sacking the dwellings around the hermitage of Sun Miguel. Otermin sent a troop to reconnoitor, and they saw that the leader of the horses was an Indian from Galisteo, who had been fiscal of the convent, and whom the governor had despatched two days pre vious to make overtures of peace to the rebels. Now lie paraded on horseback at the- head of the insurgents, wearing a crimson sash, and armed with sword, shield, musket, dagger and other Span ish weapons. After a protracted parley this man, was induced to speak to the governor himself. The interview, as might be expected, had no result. The Tauo Indian declared that his people would listen to nothing short OK IMMEDIATE EVACTATION OF NEW MEXICO or war. Don A ntonio de Otermin naturally chose the latter alternative, and the Tauo returned to his people who received him with tho most boisterous demonstrations. Thev shouted and veiled, blew the trum pets they had taken from the convent, and rang the bells of the chapel of San Annuel in token ot defiance. the parleys bad been entered into by the Indians in order to get time. They expected the Pueblos from the nortli to arrive before Santa re every moment, and therefore delayed the Spaniards as much as they could. OTEHMIN WAS AWAKE OF THIS, but could not resort to offensive movements ere he had exhausted all possible means of persuasion. So it was ordained by the royal ordinances of 1573, and by them he Lad to abide. But as soon as parleying was over, he sent a detachment against the rebels. That de tachment soon found itself in a critical position, owing to the numbers of the enemv ana their sheltered position, so that the governor had to go to its assistance in person with the remainder of his men. uie "whole day, the " scene" of action being the expanse on both sides of the San Miguel church and to the south of it. The Indians were quite as wen armeu as tne whites ana hail plenty cf ammunition for the day. They had the advantage ot numbers and of nosi tion, the huts and houses afforded them cover, and each of these had to be car ried. A series of hand to hand encoun ters resulted, finally the buildings were set on tire. Shortly previous to sunset the Span iards were masters of the field, when the northern Pueblos appeared in the rear of the almost defenceless palace and pro ceeded to attack it. Hastily Otermin moved back to the north side of the Santa ie river and succeeded IN IlEPL'LSINO THE ASSAILANTS. When night came on Tuesday, tne idtn ot August, fcauta me w surrounded on all sides. The fields in the south were in the hands of the Tanos, Pecos and Queres, (that is, such of them as remained after their discom fiture of the day, for many of them re turned to their homes at once). The Tehaus, Picuries and "Taos held the heights of old Fort Marcv where thev campea, ana the lomas, they scattered through the upper part ot the Cieneaa. and threatened the parrochial church, together with the springs in its neighbor hood. Squads of Indians established themselves in the abondoned dwellings of the town. Santa Fe was IN THE HANDS OF THE 11EISELS, the siege of the palace began. mat siege lasted until noon of the 20th. That is, until Tuesday of the week follow ing. Not counting the 13th, since the investment only began after night fall, nor the 20th, since the final sortie was made at daybreak, we have six davs anu seven nights lor its dura tion. During that time, the Indians made at least two determined at tempts to carry the palace by storm. On Friday, the 16th. thev set fire to the Cha pel of San Miguel and to several houses in the town, while rushing upon the walls of the royal houses. The artillery re pulsed them . On Saturdav the parrochial church and the convent were burnt down. Ihe situation was becoming more and more critical for the besieged, for the enemy impeded approach to the springs of the Cienega.
