During the first year under a Tin; Democratic bosses and ringsters Republican regime, from March 4, 18S9, oppose constitution and Btatehood to March 4, 1SW, the expenses, with the same number of prisoners, were $2U,000. It is plain to any person who can read and understand that the management under the Democratic administration was tor ew Mexico, because they are afraid, that the people will elect a Repub lican state administration.

During the first twelve months of the present Republican administration from March 4 18'., to March 4 18(H), (there being about the same number of prisoners in the institution year per year, from 1885 to 1SH0. there was received the amount of $S,000, from the same source. Facts are facts and these facts mean that the present administration of the terri torial prison is honest aud economical aud efficient, and that the Democratic administration under ex-Gov. Ross was dishonest, extravagant and inefficient. is all there is of it and all there is to it. The legislature of this territory has passed, seven rears ago, a very good school law and will pass one still more in conformity with the changed condi tions of New Mexico whenever deemed wise, proper and expedient, which, we think, will bo at the coming session of that body, Mr. Perkins will do the peo ple of this territory a favor, if he will not listen to a set of fellows who have ulte rior objects in view, and who use the school question for their own personal and political purposes. The people of New Mexico want statehood and the boon of self government; these are theirs by right, equity and treaty stipulation, and they will take care of the school question and will not be found behind the most enlightened and advanced state of the union in that direction. Hands off, Mr. Perkins, and do not allow yourself to be made a tool of. You are a Republican and ought to stand by your party in this matter, The Democratic bosses and ringsters in New Mexico are playing the wolf in sheep's clothing in this very instance. To not aid them ; do not abett their wicked schemes. Tuk people of New Mexico must not forget that under the Ross boodle admin istration, from 1883 to 18S0, when this territory was cursed with corrupt judges and dishonest federal and territorial court ofhcials, the cost of running the courts was 100,000 per year; the people must not forget that, owing to wise and bene final legislation passed by a Republican legislature over the veto of, that boodle governor, put into office hy Grover Cleve land, and owing to a jusi and honest ad ministration of the courts, Hit entire ex pense of their administration for the first welve months of the present Republican regime, amounted to only $00,000, in which sum there is included an estimate ol i 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. Tin; sugar trust, the British and foreign manufacturers and monopolists all over this country and Europe, including the New York importers and importers' agents, have all banded together for the defeat of the McKinley tariff bill. This is the best possible proof that the bill means to protect American manufacturers, American laboring men and American people as a whole, and that its provisions will attain that end. America for Amer icans, that is one of the principles of the Republican party. This country is here for some other reason, besides the making of the British manufacturer and aritocratic monopolist rich. Evehy man or corporation who held a quantity of silver recently has had fully 10 per cent added to its value by the passage of the silver act. The government itself has not fared badly as the treasury vault contents is now worth probably $35,000, 000 more than it was three months ago, before the west set its head on obtaining justice for the white metal. As before remarked, the more that silver legislation is studied, the more beneficial it appears. Heretofore London has fUed the price of silver, and the humuliating spectacle has been witnessed for years of the United States taking London's dictation on the subject. Now the order is reversed, and New Y'ork's quotation of silver w ill rule the world over. THE PERKIK8' BILL, The bill introduced by Hon. B. V. Per kins, of Kansas, in the house of repre sentatives, ostensibly providing for the appointment of a superintendent of schools for New Mexico and creating a system of public schools, is not wanted by the peo ple of New Mexico. It was gotten up by a few demagogues for effect and in order to hurt the movement for the admission 5 i of New Mexico. The people of this terri- Tuu wind is blowing through the whisk-; tory are perfectly well able to legislate for ers of several Democratic condidates for i themselves and have done so forty years. delegate in congress, aud Mr. Joseph is amongst 'em despite his assertions to the contrary. What the people want is self government and they will do their own legislating. Mr. Perkins has been imposed upon ; that THE SILVER INTERESTS LOOKING UP, Under the new law affecting silver, the increasing demand for money will be met by the distribution of some $60,000,000 annually. The west, since it produces the silver, will most directly feel the bene fits of this. The more the silver law is studied the more important it appears that it should have been passed. For the west it is by far the most vital piece of legislation turned out by congress in years. When silver reaches par, which seems now not a very far distant period, the ex penditures will amount to $70,000,000 annually, and when the halcyon day for the miner arrives, it will require but a very short step to secure free and un limited coinage of silver. It will take every ounce of silver the American mines can produce, working to their fullest capacity, to meet the requirements of this act. Here is provided an absolute, safe and steady markot for the metal. Under such circumstances there should not be an idle silver producing property in the west three months hence. THE SIEGE OF SANTA FE By the Insurgent Indians of the Pueb los in the Year 1680, Specially prepared for the New Mexican BY PROF. F. A. BANDELIKR, Member American Arcbteolocieal Institute. (Continued.) On Tuesday, August 20, Otermin sallied from the palace at daybreak with 100 men. THE INDIANS WERE TAKEN BY SI'RPRISE. Only the day previous thev had dauced in triumph in sight of the Spaniards, yelling at the top ot their voices that tney wouw soon have the besieged at their mercy, The conflict was principally along what now is San Francisco street, in the houses, the gardens and alleys. The number of Indians reported killed, .iuu, is hardly ex aggerated. According to the statements of the insurgents themselves, lorty-seven were taken alive, hurriedly examined, and then shot. At 11 o'clock a. in. all was over. The rebels scattered and the siege was raised. Over eighty horses and a number of fare arms, also provisions, were captured. Onthe Spanish side some loss was experienced, also the Maestro de Campo Andres Gomez was killed and four soldiers ; . the number of wounded was very considerable. Otermin himself had received two wounds, and a bullet had struck him on the breast, the thickness of bis buckskin cuirass arresting the force of the missile. The effect of the sortie of the 20th up on the Indians was such as to cause them to retire to their pueblos for the time be ing. It was one of those desperate efforts that sometimes succeed, and again are just as likely to fail. Otermin had no other alternative left; it was a matter of life and death to him. NOTWITHSTANDING THE VICTORY it was plain that Santa Fe could no longer be held. The fields adjacent to the town had been ravaged by the foe. Supplies were nearly exhausted at the garrison, and to replenish the stores for a time long enough to enable the people to subsist until rein forcements might arrive from Parral, de manded a greater number of men than Otormit could dispose of. Offensive warfare with the chief object of foraging would be indispensable, and how could the governor dispatch fifty men on such expeditions when he had barely held his own at Santa Fe with double that num ber. It might be alleged that twelve years later Don Diego de Vargas overawed and brought to submission the whole of the pueblos with not more than 100 sold iers, hut the conditions were vastly differ ent. Within the twelve years elapsing between the outbreak and the first cam paign of Vargas the Pueblo Indians had, through shiftlessness, improvidence, in tertribal warfare and hostility of the No madio Indians, LOST riT.LY ONE-HALF OK THEIR NIMUERS. They were discouraged and weary of independence, in fact, Vargas ap peared among them unexpectedly, and they submitted for the time. On the second return of Vargas matters took a different aspect, and we may yet have to tell the tale of thestruggle, which he had to go through in 1093 and 1694, while having a much larger force at his com mand. In 1680 the Pueblos numbered about 24,000 souls, and they controlled the live stock, the grain and food of the country. They might not have resisted successfully in the open field; even the small force Otermin was able to send against them, but they would surely have cut him np in detail, worn him out in the end. To get reinforcements from Chi huahua meant to hold out three months at least. Even if the enemy had let thorn alone during that time, hunger andmisery would surely have disposed ot the Span iards. No alternative was left therefore than to evacuate THE SMOI LDERINO RUINS OK SANTA FB and to attempt a retreat to El Paso del Norte. This was no easy matter. The dis tance was 300 miles, part of which was occupied by the enemy. It was likely, also, that the Indians would remove all crops and stores along the passage of the Spaniards. Even if no opposition was offered, starvation might be expected. From Indian prisoners, Otermin had heard that the majority of the inhabi tants of the Rio Grande valley, were con gregated at lsleta. These he hoped to find yet, and thus reinforce and revictual his people. Furthermore, he nourished a faint hope that the thirty men under command ot Pedro de Leyba might be on the return, and hearing of the disaster in New Mexico be hastening north to the rescue. On the other hand, there was no telling how far the insurrection had extended, and whether perhaps the defenceless mission of El Paso del Norte had also been wiped out by the Mansos and Sumas living there. Otermin chose the least certain of the two dangers, and determined retreating to El Paso. ON TUB 21ST OK AUOt ST that determination was made pub lic, and everything not strictly in dispensable cast a way. Of the remnant of public stores, the bulk was distributed among non-combatants. The number of horses still disposible did not suffice for carrying more than the soldiers and a limited number of in valids and women, so that the majority of non-combatants were left on foot and for the support of the animals, the pasture and fields along the road were relied upon. The soldiers had to be mounted in order to prove effective against the Indians, who were expected to attack on horse back. Of the two pieces of artillery, one was abandoned, and the other taken along. It was, however, left behind be tween San Marcos and Santa Fe. Although the date is not positively stated, it still seems probable that SANTA FE WiS EVACl'ATEU during the night ot the 21st and 22d of August. On the evening of the 22d the whole body, numbering a little over 1,000 people including seventy-five soldiers, camped near the springs of San Marcos. The pueblo had been abandoned by its people. No opposition bad been offered to the retreating force, but spies were manifestly following its tracks, for one of them was captured near San Marcos, and he informed that tie Indians were massing their forces at the so-called An gostura between Pan Felipe and Algo dones, with the intention of disputing the passage. The same Indian also re ported, that on the day previous, the in surgents had ventured to Santa Fe again, where they proceeded to sack and plun der the Palace. The northern Pueblos seemed disposed to leave the retreat of the whites undis turbed. The Indian reported that, while his people were sacking the palace "hav ing seen the number of Indians lying dead in the plaza of the town, in the streets, houses and surroundings, the rebels said, we are even with the Span iards in the number of people killed by them to us, and us to them, it is imma terial therefore if they go, let them get out of the countiy and we shall settle in this town and wherever we please." On the 24th the camp marched as far as the banks of the Rio Grande near the pueblo of Santo Domingo. Already at the outset TWO BODIES OF INDIANS APPEARED on the hills south of the arroya, making sig nal fires. Santo Domingo was deserted. In the rear of the church lay the corpses of the five Spaniards killed during the massacre, and in the church itself the bodies of the three priests had been hastily buried and in a common sepulchre. The church ornaments were intact. On the opposite bank of the river several Indians were seen herding horses. A Spaniard ventured to cross and he quickly discov ered that the horses were there only as a bait, for a numerous body of Indians rose from cover and rushed toward him. Some of the Indians crossed after him, and followed the Spanish corps which by the time was already in motion, continuing its march along the river. The sandy ex panse, along which the railroad runs to day, was occupied by the forlong throng, women, children, old men, and servants occupied the center with whatever sup plies could be carried along. Armed horsemen and a few armed Indians on foot protected the front, flanks and rear, of the noncombatants. It was impossi ble to proceed -OTHERWISE THAN VERY SLOWLY. On the 24th, halt was made close by the village of San Felipe which stood then on the left river bank, at the foot of the small circular mesa opposite almost to the pueblo of to-day. At sunset, several Indians on horseback appeared on the long mesa on which stands to-day the ruins of the church. They gazed down upon the Spanish en campment awhile, and then disappeared again.
