MONDAY, AUGl'ST IS. CALL FOR REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. A convention of the Republican parly is hereby called to meet at the city of Al buquerque on the RJth day of September, to nominate a delegate to represent the territory in the Til'd congress of the United states. The several comities of the territory are entitled to representation as follows: up to a fever heat. And the house con ferees now come in ami do just as l'ovvell and his crowd w ish Ibeni to do, that is, demand the continued segregation of all arid lands until I'owcll can complete his so-called surveys. This will require years and millions of money a fat job for I'oweil and of no earthly benefit to the present generation of settlers. Hence we say the senate is right ;'it is working for the immediate good of the settler, and it isn't yet too late for the western people to flood the house with petitions demanding that the wishes of the senate conferees be acceded to. Let the people arouse themselves. New Mexico has too much at, stake not to take an earnest part in pursuading the mem bers of the house that they re in error. Circulate the petitions nud lose no time in getting them on to Washington. Count's, hcnuiliili Colfax lioua Ann (i run t Lincoln Mora Kio Anibu Two ol w hu ll Uelc llelCK'- 17 s.

A convention of the Republican party of the county of Santa Fe is hereby called to meet at the court house in the city of Santa Fe at 11 o'clock a. m. on Monday, the 2d day of September, 1800, for the niimose of selecting eight delegates to renreHent the county ot Sania Fe at the Republican territorial convention to be held at Albuquerque on the 13th day of September, 1HH0, for the purpose of nomi nating a candidate lor delegate to the 52d congress of the United States. 1 lie precincts will be entitled to the following representation : Tui! supremacy of the law above any one man. Let its provisions be carried out and have it understood that this is a government of law and not of personal violence and political partisanship, as it was under the Democratic judges in ttiis territory. Let just punishment be meted out to all transgressors of the law, no matter what their position, high or low , rich or poor. They are equal before the ! law. Tins Denver Times of the 14th instant says : "The Democratic members of the house committee on territories, at a meeting of that body held yesterday, opposed and defeated a motion to take up the bill for an enabling act for New Mexico. This settles the question of New Mexico's ad mission for this session. The only reason for the action of the Democrats was the fear that the Democratic prospects of car rying New Mexico in case she became a state were not as good as they might be.'' That means, and proves conclusively, that the Democrats in congress, as ever, are opposed to any and everything, that might benefit New Mexico. It appears from the official records, that the collector of Santa Fe county, Sheriff Frank Chaves, is charged with the following amounts for the year LSStl: Delinquent taxes, $12,737 .20 1 fr licenses, $3,l!l0 ; for taxes 1SS9, $20,4iti.!i3. These charges are those of the territory against the collector. There appears to his credit the sum of if9.8!)S.90 paid over on Feb ruary 12 last. The law clearly directs that the collector shall pay over to the territorial treasurer all funds in his poses siou on the 10th of each mouth. From the ollicial records it appears that no money has been paid over since February. Has noue been collected? Has any been collected? If so, why is it not paid over as the law directs? Pertinent questions these at this time specially. Tuk bosses and county boodlers, who are running the Democratic party in this county, are assailing District Attorney Twitchell because he is making a deter mined effort to have the cowardly and bloody murder of Faustin Ortiz investi gated, and because his endeavor so to do has so far cost the territory a few hun dred dollars in witness fees. District At torney Twitchell will receive the com mendation of all good and law-abiding citizens in his course. For the other class he need not care. He is not in office for the purpose of making friends with law breakers, lie is in office representing the people in the matter of investigating crime, bringing the perpetrators thereof to light and punishment. Let him do his duty honestly and fearlessly, as he has started out to do. THE CASH OF SHERIFF CHAVEZ. Some of our Democrat friends around here are indulging in a good deal of pica yunisli and senseless talk concerning the case against Sheriff Chavez for assault on Frunk liorrego, when the latter was in jail, the sherilf s prisoner and under hie protection. They are pleased to call that Apolitical persecution." There is not much to be said to men, who would hold such opinions. There is but one thing that will change them, and that would be, being arrested some time or another and under the charge of an officer, handcull'ed and in jail, and then have the latter jump on them and assault them; such a proceeding might change their opinions. Nothing short of personal vio lence will. If an indictment against an officer, (the chief peace ollicer of a county, sworn to protect the body and life of a prisoner at all hazards and to preserve the peace), for assaulting a defenseless prisoner in his charge is "political persecution," the more of that w e have, the better. It seems to be badly needed ; in fact it seems to be very badiy needed. It is astonishing that men should so far forget all manhood and should so sink the American feeling of justice ami fairness as to defend such ouiluct on the part of an ollicer. As we have said, thetmly way to convince such men, is to give them a dose of that sort of medicine, and they would then not sing so laud. Not only w as the sheriff's proceeding in this case in the highest degree unlaw' fill, reprehensible aud detrimental to the public good, but it was aggravated by the fact, that the prisoner was then under his largo for protection against any and all assaults, aud that the solemn oath of office the sherilf had taken required of him jnite a different performanceof duty than the one he indulged in. The plea of guilty was a wise proceed ing on the part of the defendant ; for the facts that would have been brought out at the trial would make the case look very black indeed. Whatever punishment be assessed, the moral effect of the proceeding will be an excellent one. It is about time that it were established that, law rules in this country and not the petty tyranny of few officials clothed with temporary au thority and who abuse such authority. There has been too much of this sort of business under the late Democratic ad ministration. It is, however, a reproach on this com munity that men can be found who will approve such conduct on the part of an ollicer and who assert and call a lawful prosecution of such au outrageous case of "political persecution." We make no bones about it. There is devilish little American manhood about such a crowd. We are treating this case in a fair, just and open manner, but desire it distinctly understood that if harsher words are re quired they will be said, and that in a manner that will count.

Chairman, Rep. Co. Com. Wm. M. BiiutiKK, Secretary. THE SENATE IS KIQHT. As was to be feared the senate and house conferees have struck a snag and come to a square halt on the arid lands act For nearly a month the sundry civil ap propriation bill has been hung up, and any agreemeut seems now a long way off. This is most unfortunate in view of the vital interests of the arid region's settlers which this bill involves. The senate is certainly right in its demand for the repeal of the act of October 2, 1888. It is posi tive folly to charge that the welfare of either irrigation monopolies or land spec ulators is responsible for the position they have taken. Should private capital locate reservoir sites and demand from settlers exorbitant water rentals, they could readily be held in check by local legisla tive enactment. On the other hand the contention of the house is wrong, in every sense opposed to the interests of the people of the west. Powell and his lobby have related exaggerated stories to the innocents in the house in reference to the conditions prevailing throughout the west, hinting at "powerful corporations," "giant water monopolies," and the like until they have worked the representatives highly appreciated, and w here Whitecap ism is unknown. The San Miguel county White Caps should be suppressed without much difficulty, if public sentiment were strongly in favor of their suppression. The fact that Whitecapism exists there at all Bhows that public sentimect is in some degree at fault." BY RAIL TO NKW MEXICO. The activity in real estate which is re ported to exist in Santa Fe may be a fore runner of it general business awaking in New Mexico. If this be true, it behooves Denver to be looking after the New Mex ico trade. New Mexico is a territory of great na tural resources. It contains a great deal of gold and silver. It is particularly rich in copper, and it contains enormous quantities of good coal. Iron also is found in some parts, and building stone is abundant. It has several very fine agricultural valleys, none of which are cultivated to their full extent. If devel oped to the extent of its natural resources it would be capable of supporting a popu lation of 2,000,000 or 3,000,000. It is growing, although there is not the same degree of activity there that we see in Colorado. But, even as matters stand to-day, its trade is very valuable, and Denver ought to improve its means of rail communication with the territory. There is practically no means of communication by rail between Denver and New Mexico, excepting the line of the Atchison, To- peka & Santa Fe. This does not furnish the competition which is essential to the lowering of rates and the prompt hand ling of freight. It is believed to be the intention of the Union Pacific to extend the Denver, Texas & Gulf road into the Maxwell grant coun try. It is not known, however, how soon this will be done, nor whether the pro posed line will be extended far enough to bring very much of New Mexico into con nection with this city by way of the Den ver, Texas & Gulf. The line to which the people of Den' ver and the inhabitants of the central part of New Mexico should give the most attention in this connection is the Den ver & Rio Grande. Steps should he taken to induce that company, If possi ble, to extend its line into New Mexico, and to develop a system there somewhat similar to the one it owns in Colorado. It is no idle dream to say that this could be done. New Mexico is an easy coun try in w hich to build a railroad, and it has many prosperous towns which would supply a second road with a great deal of business, notwithstanding the Santa Fe company has its lines in most of those places. Duuinq the Democratic administration from 188S 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 is 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. THE DENVER BEPUBLICAK COMMENTS ON NEW MEXICO AFFAIRS. BTATKHOOD FO KUW MEXICO. "None of the friends of New Mexico need object to the postponement of the bill for an enabling act in behalf of that territory. In the meantime a constitu tional convention will be formed, the work of which will probably be satisfac tory to a majority of the people. The constitution will likely be adopted. But it is exceedingly doubtful if the constitu tion fiumed last year would be acceptable to the majority of the voters. It is proba ble that an act for the admission of New Mexico into the union will be passed next winter, and there is a fair prospect that New Mexico will be a state before the final adjournment of the present con gress." TUK HAN MIUL'KL COUNTY WHITE CAPS. "The White Caps in the vicinity of Las Vegas, N. M., are still perpetrating their outrages. It is time for the better element in New Mexico to put a stop to this thing. Whitecapism can not be allowed to con tinue there much longer without its causing great injury to New Mexico. The territory should seek to establish a reput tion for law and order. If it acquires a reputation for disorder, emigrants willjnot make their homes within its boundaries They will shun it. They will turn to other parts of the west, where law and order are During three and a halt years of the Ross boodle administration of the terri torial penitentiary there was received from the labor of convicts and the feeding of United States prisoners the sura 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 1890) there was received the amount of $8,000, from the same source Facts ar 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. Tub people of New Mexico must not forget that under the Ross boodle admin istration, from 1885 to 1889, when this territory was cursed with corrupt judges and 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 ficial legislation passed 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, thb entire ex pense of their administration for the first twelve months of the present Republican regime, amounted to only $60,000, in which sum there is included an estimate ol i deficiency in the pay of jurors, etc. about $10,000; this means that under of the Democratic administration the people of New Mexico were systematically and constantly robbed by corrupt judges and dishonest court officials.
