Constitutional Convent ion Call. Los Lcnas, N. M., ( June, 15, 181)0.) In pursuance of the authority conferred by a resolution of the constitutional con vention assembled in Santa Fe, N. M., in September, 18S9, 1 hereby call a meeting of said convention to be held at the terri torial capitol in Santa Fe, N. M., on the 18th day of August, 1890, at 10 o'clock in the forenoon. J. Francisco Chavez, President of the Conat'al. Con. Durino the Democratic administration, from 1885 to 1889, 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, 1890, the expenses, with the same number of prisoners, were $29,000. It Lb plain to any person who can read and understand that the management under the Democratic administration was dishonest, and the management under a Republican administration is honest. That is all. Di'KiNothree and a halt years of the Ross boodle administration of the terri torial penitentiary tliere 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 Irom March 4 1889, to March 4 1890, (there being about the same number of prisoners in the institution year per year, from 1885 to 1890) 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. Tiik house committee on military af fairs has reported favorably the bill to re vive the rank of general of the army, Gen. Miles' friends have been most active in pushing this measure and should it be come a law, which seems highly proba ble, that distinguished soldier will stand a most excellent chance for promotion Tim new brigadier general, Gen. Alex auder Midi. McCook, promoted from the colonelcy of the 7th infantry, in place of liria. Gen. Grierson, retired, is one of the fighting McCooks and a soldier of dis tinction aud with an excellent war record. He is now in command of the infantry school at Fort Leavenworth. Tim census of the original thirteen states just 100 years ago showed a popula tion of 3,929,214. There are now forty- four Btates and the population is a trille below $05,000,000. The record for 100 years shows that the population of the union has averaged an increase of GOO, 000 each year. Tin-: Los Angeles Tribune, the most in fluential i.nd most widely circulated paper in southern California, speaks thtisly edi torially of the Nkw Mexican : "The Santa Fe Nkw Mexican is fight ing gallantly for the interests of New Mexico. It is urging economy and ef- hcacy in the governments of the territory and of its counties. The Republican platform promised the people four things: A liberal pension policy, a more favorabje recognition of the silver interests, a more perfect ad justment of the taritr in the interest of American industry, and a lair and honest national election law. The first two promises have already been redeemed, and the last two will be redeemed before congress adjourns. The Republican par ty keeps its promises. Crane, the actor, lias been out to enjoy the "glorious climate of California" and has been playing to San Francisco audi ences. The people, lie thinks, are not appreciative, enjoying most bits of horse play and a prize fight. Ilesays: "Tliere are four climates every day and five on Sunday. It is winter in the morning, summer in the afternoon and pneumonia at night." Craae is telling this sort of a story all over the east and the San Fran ciscans are awfullv mad about it. The people of New Mexico must not forget that under the Ross boodla admin istration, from 1885 to 1889, when this territory was Cursed with corrupt judges nd dishonest federal and territorial court officials, the cost of running the courts was $160,000 per year ; the people must not forget that, owing to wise and bene ttcial legislation passed by a Republican legislature over the veto of that boodle governor, put into office by Grover Cleve land, and owing to a juffi 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 $G0,000, in which sum there is included an estimate ot 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 iudges and dishonest court officials. Congress has at last concluded its sil ver legislation, and the bill is now in the hands of Trcsident Harrison. That he will sign it, there is not the slightest doubt. The bill requires the treasury de partment to purchase 4,500,000 ounces of silver monthly, aud while recognizing the money quality of the white metal as fully, perhaps, as could be hoped for at this time, it will bring a safe market for the entire silver product of the country and educate the masses so that in a few years a very short step will bring about free and unlimited coinage. Withthegovernment taking all the silver offered at the market price, the western miners ought to ex perience great prosperity. WATEB, IN THE AEID REGION. Secretary Rusk is an ardent advocate of the plan to develop water for irrigation purposes by sinking artesian wells. Where these can not be secured at reasonable cost he favors the use of tubular wells and pumps. The secretary has been brought to his conclusions by reports re cently made by special agents who were sent to examine the under ground cur rents of that region of country covered by eastern Colorado, New Mexico, Western Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, Wyoming and Dakota. As a rule it is found, outside of the artesian water belts so far devel oped, that water exists within easy reach of the surface. In western Texas and eastern New Mexico, in particular, the benefits likely to result from the sinking of tubular wells are very great. In western Texas, according to official report, large areas have been made valu able to the stockman and fruit grower by the use of such wells. It is calculated that a well flowing from eight to twenty gallons a minute, which ia noted as the general average flow, "will irrigate from ten to thirty-five acres." In New Mexico, where farm products are so valuable, there is money in providing such a well for every five acres of ground if necessary. The stock raisers, too, can w ell afford to take courage from the facts above recited. Silver is $1.07 and is still on the up grade. The magnificent climate of this city and territory to the front. HARD ON PERKINS' SCHOOL BILL, Our noble and illustrious friend, ex- Chief Justice E. V. Long, comes out in favor of the school bill introduced in the house of representatives by Mr. Terkins of Kansas, supposedly in tho interest of Now Mexico. There must bo something rotten about the bill ; the ex-chief justice means no good by his support of it; on general principles, and if there were nothing else against tho bill, than the ex chief justice's support of it, it ought to be killed. That reminds us ; has the learned ex-chief justice as yet settled up with Col. Johnson, ex-clerk of his court? The people would like to know ; if he has not, he had better ; this advice is disin terested and given for his own good. A settlement with the colonel might pre vent some startling disclosures. Take heed, while there is yet time. MB, JOSEPH WILL RUN AND BE BEATEN. 15 icing asked by sevoral people, who de sire to know, we take great pleasure in saying thus publicly, that in our opinion Mr. Joseph will accept the Democratic nomination for congress, and further more that Mr. Joseph will be most glor iously beaten on November 4 next. There are several reasons for the view we have taken, among them being one, which we desire to give now, and it is, that at the coming election there will not be at each poll eight rullians and bulldozers armed w ith commissions as deputy mar shals issued by a Democratic U. S. mar shal, aud carrying pistols to intimidate the voters, but there will be a free and fair election. This, our Democratic friends might just as well understand now and gov ern themselves accordingly. Democratic bulldozing must cease. If any Demo cratic sheriff attempts bulldozing in the future, as some of them did during the past few years and while corrupt Demo cratic judges were on the bench, he will find himself in the soup, aud that in a good large tureen and in hot, right hot soup at that. WHO 18 TO BLAME? A few days ago afederal official wrote to the chief clerk of the railway mail service asking for an exchange mail pouch between Santa Fe and Las Vegas, and Santa Fe and Albuqueruue and Las Vegas and Albu querque on trains Nos. 1 and 2, explain ing that we would thus secure exchange of mail between these points in twelve hours, whereas, it now requires thirty-six hours. The reply received to-day, states that this matter was recently taken up with the postmasters of the offices named and that they each replied that the amount of mail matter thus advanced was too small to warrant the service. If the postmasters of these towns are too indifferent to the good of the service they should be shaken up. If they are afraid of work, they should be shaken up. Quicker transaction of business, more rapid mail connection, and what is for the convenience and benefitof the people, are just of a little more consequence than the convenience and comfort of the postmas ters at Santa Fe, at Las Vegas and Albu querque. The New Mexican is of the opinion, that Postmaster Gen. Wanamaker will take this view of the case. could not be true, elso congress would Dot have interceded for us. l'assthe Perkins bill, aud every prominent paper in the east, that has spoken a good word for us, will retract what it has said, and will do us twice the injury that it has done good. What decs the Perkin's bill propose? Does it pretend to make an appropriation of any sura for us? Nothing of the kind, I am told. The bill is the law of Kansas, or some state, copied, and it is intended to be applied to New Mexico by national authority. The true purpose, probably is I to throw another obstacle in the way of ! our becoming a state. It is to prejudice our claims. It reveals a feeling that we j are not ready to become a state, and that our pretences to the contrary are unfound ed and false. There will be no trouble about local legislation on the school ques tion. The proposed constitution commits the people of this territory to the passage of the proper school laws. There are no fears that the next legislature itself will not give us all we need upon the subject. VERITX. Harpers, The Century, Scribners, the North American and all other magazines bound in first-class style and cheap at the New Mexican bindery. Finest and best job work in the terri tory aud most excellent binding at the Nkw Mexican printing office. Job Printing. Merchants and others are hereby re minded that the New Mexican is pre pared to do their printing on short notice and at reasonable rates. Much of the job printing now going out of town should come to the New Mexican office. There iu no better excuse for sending out of town for printing than there is for sending away for grocerios or clothing. Our mer chants should consider these things. The New Mexican is acknowledged the lead ing paper of this section. The patronage of the people will enable us to keep it so. THE PERKINS SCHOOL BILL. To the Kditor of the New Mexican. Las Vegas, N. M., July 12, 1890. I notieo that in Lao Vegas a petition is be ing handed around, and being signed ask ing congress to pass the school bill re cently Introduced in the house by Mr. Perkins, of Kansas. I don't know whether Mr. Perkins was ever in New Mexico, or w hether he could tell that we have a school law here or not, but I do know no greater mistake could be made than the passage of the Perkins bill, not because we do not need a good school law, but because we can not afford to ex hibit to the world the anomlay of asking congress to give us a school law, when we are applying for admission to state hood. This is the first time in our country's history that congress has attempted the passage of such a law. What would its passage do for us? It would advertise us as an illit erate, ignorant population, unfit for self- government, and needing the special in tervention of congress for probably ten years to come. It would brand as false every assumption that we have made that we are ready for statehood. No greater blow could be struck at our territory than the admission that the passage of such a law would imply. It would relegate us to the rear of every territory in the United States. Utah and Alaska both would be ahead of us in the line of admission to the union of states. AVliat congress would, after the passage of the Perkins bill, be willing to consider our claims for admission? Would we not be told that we are not lit for assuming the functions of a state, and would not the congressional school bill be pointed to as an, evidence of the fact? They would say to us ; "We have been compelled to pass a school law for you. It is nonsense for you to talk about being admitted until we see what progress you will make under this law." What would it matter if we should tell them that w e are competent to pass local laws for our protection and benefit, aud that the school law of New Mexico was as good as the average law ou the subject in the states, when congress undertook to act for us? They would only say that it SOL.
