FOR DELEGATE TO THE 52XD CONGRKKS. MARIANO S. OTERO, of Bernalillo County. Republican County Conven tion at Santa Fe, Saturday Oct 11th, 1890. The gani; spent $2,500 in this county on yesterday's election. The American flag seems to have got ten it in the neck yesterday in New Mexico. Defeat the gang '.icket and vote for honest county government on November 4 next. Success of the gang ticket means bad for thig county and this city and the property owners and tax pavers therein. Beware, ere it is too late. A little less law lessness and a little more obedience to the law, Messrs. candi date! on the gang ticket and ccuuty of ficials. There is justice still to be had around this county. If the dishonest men on the Demo cratic gang ticket are elected at the No vember election in this county, good bye prosperity and an in (lux of capital into Santa Fe and Santa Fe county. The gang spent only $2,500 on yester terday's election in this county. Where did the money came from, and whose money-was it? Guess, if you can '.' You will not have to guess far or much ! So far as heard from the press of the country regardless of politics, is taking most kindly to the Stewart bills recently introduced in congress relative to govern ing the public schools of New Mexico and enforcing the use of the English language in this territory. The Republicans of Sierra comity have nominated a good ticket and one that Trill, in all human probability.be elected; our advices are that Sierra county is good for 150 and more majority forM. S. Otero. His majority in that county two years ago was lorty-eight. The voters and citizens of New Mexico had best remember on election day, that the Democratic candidate, Antonio Jo seph, lias no influence in Washington now, and will have none in the coming congress. A vote or him is a vote thrown away, a vote for Otero will do the terri tory some good. Canada is quite torn up over the tariff which the McKinley bill lavs upon mut ton, oats, barley, eggs, horses and other farm products. And yet some people contend that this bill was not framed for the good of the American producor. Why should not Canadian eggs, nats, barley, etc., be shut out? This country audits people are abundantly able to pro duce these articles, and certainly they de serve protection if any class of American labor does. The debt of Santa Fe county now amounts to about $50.1,000; if the gang ticket should by any mishap be success ful, the debt at the end of 1802 will amount to $000,000 ; the interest on that debt now amounts to about $30,000 per year; a fine invitation that for capital to inveet here. Is it not? dictments on the criminal side of that court. The sincere thanks of the citizens of this territory are due to Atty. Gen. Miller for ti is prompt and intelligent ac tion in the premises. The silence observed by Mr. Antonio Joseph, the candidate of the Democratic bosses and wno runs for congress upon an anti-land grant platform, concerning his claims to about 200,000 acres of land in Taos and Rio Arriba counties under a Mexican land grant title, is very expres sive and eloquent. He dare not say verv much about ihe matter ; he is afraid to.' The Republican party of New Mexico has a good deal of work before it ; it hus less than a month to do it in ; the enemy is unscrupulous and dishonest to the core; the best interests of the people demand the defeat of the bosses and the corrupt men now in control of the Democratic machine ; they have worked against the best interests of New Mexico in the past and will work against them in the future. The Repitblicausof New Mexico must put their shoulders to the wheel loyally and energetically, if they would be successful in the coming election. Rear this in mind, and act accordingly. CoNsiDKitiNO the combination of cir cumstances and the influences of all kinds, political and otherwise, against the adop tion of the constitution, the friends of progress, prosperity, advancement and statehood for New Mexico Have no cause to complain. The anti-statehood people confidently expected a majority of 350 in this city ; they did not get it ; the outlook for the Democratic gang ticket looks blue, very blue, indeed, unless the tax payers are fools enough to put up more money to to be used in the election and in the prcs ent campaign. There is no question about it ; a Repub lican delegate will be able to exercise some influence witli the administration and with congress during the coming two years; a Democratic delegate, Joseph cr any one else, wi'l be simply a nullity ; specially Joseph, who is very unpopular in the departments and w ith United StaUs senators ; hence vote for M. S. Otero, who will make a first-class delegate in every respect ; make your vote count and help the territory ; the good Lord knows the terrilory needs all the help it can possibly get and from every direction. Some of the newspapers printing the Railway Age's estimate of railroad con struction in the nation for this year have glibly set New Mexico down as among the territories building not a mile of new road this year. The original dispatch men tioned simply "Mexico," but in both cases there is nothing to justify the assertion. Nobody knows how many new miles of road Mexico has built this year, but as far as New Mexico, certainly thister. itory is ahead of many of its competitors this trip, for over 100 miles of new railroad has been added to the territory's mileage during the present year and certainly that isn't bad, for it means at least $1,000, 000 eventually added to the taxable wealth of New Mexico. THE NEW STATE OF IDAHO. The state of Idaho elects the whole Republican state ticket by a majority of 2, 500, and forty-six Republicans out of fifty five members of the legislature; the leg islature will elect two Republican United States senators ; the people of Idaho want a good many things from the adminis tration and from congress and remem bered that it was a Republican president, a Republican senate aud a Republican house of representatives, who all worked together and admitted them into the union as a free, sovereign and inde pendent state. It is well j the people of Idaho did well ; immigration and capital are going into the new state at a great rate ; business is increasing ; values of all sorts of property are increasing ; mining properties are being developed as never before, and a general good time is coming for all the people of the new state. A U. S. ASSISTANT ATTORNEY FOR NEW HEXIC0, We are pleased to announce that Attorney General Miller, recognizing the necessity for the appointment of an assistant attorney for New Mexico as set forth at length by the New Mexican of the 1st of September last, has appointed Mr. Geo. C. Preston, an able and well qualified attorney, to that office. The recent transactions in the only court held in New Mexico since we called attention to this appointment abundantly justify the position of the New Mexican then taken. In that court held in the 3d judicial dis trict, U. S. Attorney Fiske had more work than any one man should handle or could well handle. There were nineteen convictions and tlx trials in which the defendants were ac quitted, making a total of twenty-five cases on the U. S. side of the court dis posed of in a term of but twenty-three days, without reducing the U. S. business in that court as shown by the fact, that in that term there were thirty-six new in- TER RITORIAL PO LITK.'S, Uaming Strength. la every section of the territory pros pects are bright for Republican victory. M. S. Otero is gaining popularity in his canvass for congress aud his election is assured. Albuquerque Citizen. And Joxfph Has Made n Bargain with Tlieiu. All tike papers in the territory are con demning the work of the White Caps who are destroying so much property In San Miguel county. The White Caps should be treated as rabid curs. That is the only thing that will have the desired effect. Folsom Metropolitan. OitrSLumlurd nearer. The Republican convention on Septem ber 13 named that stalwart and reliable Republican, Mariano S. Otero, of Rerna hllo county, as the representative of this territory in the next congress. He is a distinguished citizen of New Mexico, a man of unchallenged integrity and un swerving fidelity to the grand principles of the hepublican party. It is a well known fact that he is not and never has been an office seekers, but upon the demand of his party, and being loyal to its principles, he has accepted the nomination. It is truly a case of "the ollice seeking the man." Two years ago, when called upon by the Republican convention at Socorro, he accepted and made the race, but was de feated by the most nefarious designs of a wily enemy. The polls in several coun ties were packed witlt deputy United States marshals, the people overawed, aud Otero w as defeated by a small ma jority, although it was clear that with a fair vote he would have been elected. It was right, it was just, honorable and patriotic that the Republican party should again give Otero the nomination, and ev ery voter who believes in the principles of spurt y, v ho believe in honest elec tions and protection to American labor, should do their utmost to give Otero a clean anil large majority. He did not seek the position, his wishes have not been consulted ; but the people have demanded his services, and like a patriot he will submit to the inevitable and become the representative of New Mexico in the 52d congress of the United States. Two years ago Sierra county gave Otero fifty majority ; this year he should have 200 majority lrom the Bilver-seameu, gold lined mountain county of Sierra. King ston Shaft. Tiie Kll'ect. Bv the time this issue of the Citizen reaches ihe public the question of state or no state, will have been virtually set tied by the people of New Mexico, and upon that decision, whether for or against, will rest the fate of this territory tor at least ten years to come. If the result of this day's work has been in favor of statehood and protiress, New Mexico from this time forth will experience a new era of development and advancement, aud will be regarded by the rest of the country as worthy to be recorded among the sisterhood of states; people who are accustomed to the privileges and advantages of churches, schools, newspapers and the various concomitants of modern civiliza tion, will understand from a verdict in favor of statehood under the liberal and progressive constitution which we are voting on to-day, that the people of New Mexico have a correct idea of the wants of a community in this age of the world, and are worthy to be considered a part of the American people, and that their ter ritory is entitled to a place as a state in the American union. If, on the other hand, our verdict to day shall be against the constitution and progress, we may make up our minds to remain in our present territorial condition for at least the remainder of this century, and to be regarded by the whole civilized world as the only community under the American flag which considers itself incompetent to exercise the rights and duties of a state. And we may rest assured that congress will then take the matter in hand, and give us some legislation which the oppo nents of the slate movement may not relish. The chauces are ten to one that the Perkins school bill and the Stewart English bill will both be laws, and be in force in New Mexico, before the end of twelve months from this tune. The anti-state and anti-progress journals and speakers have tried to make it appear that this Stewart bill is merely a "cam paign dodge," and that there is nothing in it, but now, when the election is vir tually over, and there is nothing to be made by misrepresentation, we want to call the attention of the people of this territory to the fact that this Stewart bill is no joke, but a very serious matter, and we predict that just as surely as the sun goes down to-night on a majority in this territory against the constitution, the Stewart bill or one essentially the same, will be a law of the United States before the 4th of next March, when the present congress expires. Member ot congress have no right to assume that they know us better than we know ourselves, and if we have declared by our votes to-day that we are inconv petent to assume the responsibilities of self government, we have no right to complain if congress takes us at our word and does for us those things w hich we say we are not competent to do lor ourselves Albuquerque Citizen. During the Democratic adminiBtraticn 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 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. REPUBLICAN PLATFORM. We, the Republican party of the ter ritory of New Mexico, in convention assembled, at Albuquerque, the 13th day of September A. D. 1890, reaffirm the principles of the Republican party as set forth in the Republican platform of 1888, and we indorse the actions ofPresident Harrison, and of the 51st congress in Div ing effect to the same. And we especially thank the president for calling the atten tion of congress in his messages to New Mexico ana her wants and the necessity for a speedy settlement of our land claims ; and we also thank the senate of the United States for making a special order. during the present congress, the consid eration of a bill to create a land court to settle our land titles, and urgently impress upon congress the necessity for speedy action in the enactment of some law to that end. We commend the recent action of the Republican members of both houses of congress, in passing the silver bill, as a wise, salutary and good beginning ; but a still larger increase of our circulating medium is imperatively demanded, and we urge the passage of a law removing all restrictions from the coinage of silver productions of the United States, and we earnestly endorse and hereby approve the action of a Republican congress and ad ministration in impos;ng a duty on lead ores, in the bill which has lately passed congress, by means of which the miners and mining interests of our territory have been protected from foreign competition and mining property greatly enhanced in value, and w e condemn ttie Democratic party for opposing the same. We endorse the tariff legislation carried through against the persistent and violent opposition of the Democratic party, where by wool, the greatest product of New Mexico, has been permanently placed beyond the competition of the cheap products of Australia. The Republican party remembers with gratitude the services of the former sol diers of the nation in defence of its in tegrity, and thanks congress for the passage of the dependent pension bill, as well as a vast number of private pension bills, many of which were vetoed by Grover Cleveland. We thank the present administration and congress for the repeal of the ob noxious law, enacted by a Democratic ad ministration, whereby there were ex cluded from entry and purchase all the public lands west of the 100th meridian, and for removing thelobstructions, placed by the Democratic party, in the way of the settlers in obtaining titles to their lands and homes. Also for the liberal aid extended to our agricultural college and agricultural interests, appropriating tor us more than $30,000 annually. We charge upon the Democratic party, the responsibility for the enactment of the so called alien law, about three years since, by means of which foreign capital has been forbidden to come within our territory and foreign money has been turned away from us, thereby creating a scarcity in financial resources, absolutely stopping investments in our mines and real estate, and almost stopping all business. To this act alone we attribute the de pressed condition of business in this and all other territories. We condemn our present delegate in congress for silently folding his arms and quietly permitting, without a protest, the passage of the two laws before referred to and charge him with neglect of his duty and the abandonment of the best inter ests of our people and territory by mak ing no effort to prevent the passage of said lawB and for making no effort to se cure their repeal. Resolved, That We admire and praise the prudence, courage and common sense of Thomas B. Reed, speaker of the national house ot representatives in throttling and destroying the revolution ary habit of fillibustoring, thereby enab ling the majority to enact the people s will into positive law, and we rejoice with the friends of freedom and progress every where at his triumphant n-election by an increased majority. The Republican party of New Mexico declares itself as unequivocally in lavor at all times of the admission of New Mex ico into the union of states, under any possible circumstances, as the one essen tial condition of our progress and advance ment, without which our great natural resou'ees will remain comparatively un known and undeveloped. We heartily approve of the action of the constitutional convention in fixing a date for the submission of the constitu tion to the people, apart from the time of the general election, so as to remove the question of statehood from the possible disturbance of partisan political feeling, thus affording an opportunity to all pro gressive and patriotic citizens to . vote in favor of our admission to the union freed from the embarrassment of ordinary political elections ; and we earnestly call on every friend of New Mexico, who has the public welfare at heart, and who is entitled to vote, to go to the polls on the 7th of October next, and cast his vote for the best interests of New Mexico, irre spective of party, We earnestly insist that the question of statehood for New Mexico is not and ought not to be an issue of a partisan po litical character. And we deeply regret as unpatriotic and unstatesmentlike the effort, by the representatives of the Dem ocratic party, recently assembled in con vention at Silver City, to bring this ques tion, which rises above all political fac tions, down to a fight between the two parties. We indorse and approve the territorial administration of Gov. Priuce as clean, wise and able, eminently satisfactory to the people of New Mexico at home and adding to ihe credit and estimation of the territory abroad, and we point with great satisfaction to the decrease in the ex penses of the territory and the reduction of the public debt under Republican of ficials. Resolved, That we refer with pride to the economical manner in which the conrts of the territory are conducted by Republican judges, the cost per annum being about $00,000. while under the ad ministration of Democratic judges it cost the people $100,000 for the same period, or nearly three times as much. We favor universal education and a complete and adequate system of free public schools for the entire territory ana state of New Mexico, and insist that ample means shall be produced by taxation for their support for a period of not less than six months in the year, and we further favor the conferring upon the voters of each school district the right to impose adiMtional taxes for such district for such purposes, and we urge the election of members to the legislature Who will favor such measures. We denounce and condemn in the most unqualified terms the slanderous charge of the Democracy that the native people of this territory are mentally and morally disqualified for self government ; on which ground that party bases its chief objection to the constitution. We favor the protection of laborers and employes and the adoption of proper laws securing to them liens for their services and also establishing suitable courts of arbitration for the settlement of differ ences between employes and employers. Resolved, That we recommend and adopt as a designating device, to be print ed on the face and at the head of the ticket or ballot of the Republican party to be voted at the various polling places in this territory at the general election, to be held on the first Tuesday of November next, the American flag; and that we re gard the action of the territorial Demo cratic convention, recently held at Silver City, in specially refusing to adopt the same emblem, as characteristic of the history of the Democratic party ever sipce 1800.
