The Democratic bosses assert that no

Tukrb is this much difference between
the Republicans of New Mexico and the
Democratic party bosses ; the latter desire
to settle elections by dishonest and cor
rupt practices, fraud and violence, stuffing
of ballot boxes and the stealing of ballot
boxes and returns ; the former proceed
in the settlement of election questions in
an honest, lawful and legal manner;
thafs all the difference and tho only
Colorado is in a very bad way as re
gards the raising of funds for making an
exhibit at the Worlds' Fair. The income
of the state is now scarcely enough to pay
the actual running expenses of the gov
ernment,and it is not at all probable that an
appropriation for an exhibit will be made.
Either private subscriptions or an ar
rangement where in each county shall look
out for itself is likely to be the resorted to
to remedy the matter.
The lower house of Congress will this
week probably get action on the bill to
reclassify and fix the salary of the railway
mail service. This is certainly timely
legislation, and Congress cannot im
prove the present arrangement any too
rrakk. The railway mail clerks in the
southwest, to our knowledge, are worked
beyond all reason, and while raising the
salary of these, as it should, it would be
well to authorize the employment of ad
The Democratic blackmailing sheet in

Twknty-fivs days of the session have
come and gone and only thirty-five days
remain ; set to work and legislate, ye
members of the house of representatives,
wherein the Democratic party has a ma
jority ; the council is ready, willing and
anxious to procure good, needed and
wholesome legislation ; get to work, while
there is yet time.
A uevision and compilation of the laws
of New Mexico is hard and important
work j such a revision and compilation
can not be finished in a day or in forty
days ; if anything In that line is to be
done, the commission of lawyers to do
that work should be given ample time;
six months would be none too much.
There are only thirty-five days of the ses
sion left and absolutely nothing of any
value could be done in that direction dur
ing the remainder of the session.
Tub historic southwest, full of folk-lore,
romance without limit, rugged scenic
beauty and archaeological interest, is just
now beginning to attract some attention
from the literary world. H. Rider Hag
gard, the novelist, is the latest to see what
rare material exists in these parts for
treatment by the literatenr, and he is now
en route to Mexico where he will make
exhaustive study of antiquities with a
view to giving to the world of letters a
romance dealing with Aztec civilization
of about the time of the Spanish conquest.
His work will be looked for with more
than ordinary interest.
Tub circulation of the Nuw MnxtcAN,
the daily, the weekly and the Spanish
edition, Is growing; this journal reaches
more readers in the territory than any
other paper; it goes to a great many
Spanish speaking subscribers; this paper
will have, as soon as the record is done,
occasion to either praise or condemn
members of the 29th legislative assembly,
aud it will do so in no uncertain tone ;
the people shall know what members of
the recent assembly were faithful and
honest public servants, and what mem
bers were corrupt and dishonest, bought
up by corporations and monopolies and
under the dictation of the party bosses ;
this journal will accord praise where it
justly belongs and put blame where it
properly and fairly applies. The people
shall be fully informed of every member's
doings, good or bad or indifferent.
What They Say About Matters Be
fore the Legislature.
Desires Proper Assessments.
One of the most important matters
which should receive legislative attention
is Borne measure to secure the proper
assessment of property for the purposes
of taxation. A large amount of property
escapes taxation entirely and there are
in many Instances unequal assessments.
It has been proposed to have precint as
sessors. This would be too cumbersome.
This county has forty-three precincts and
in some of the precincts, we are satisfied,
it would be impossible to find a compe
tent person to make the assessments,
and the boundary lines of the pre-
cints are so imperfectly defined that
it would produce confusion worse con
founded, and much property would be
likely to escape taxation. The Reporter
would now suggest a plan which we be
lieve would be a decided improvement
upon the present system. Abolish the
office of county assessor and make the
county commissioners ex-officio assessors
for the respective districts which they
represent in the county board. As the
board of county commissioners they act
as a board of equalization, and by per
sonally acting as assessors in their respec
tive districts they would become better
informed, and a more complete and
equable assessment would be secured,
while the system would not be too cum
bersome for practical purposes. San Mar

working in the interest of economy, to
section 2843 of the Compiled Laws. In
accordance with It the assessment rolls
are turned over to the county clerks, who
make two copies of them. The clerks
charge the different counties from $500 to
$1,500 for the work. The clerks also
charge the different counties from $40
to $150 for making ont a tabulated
statement of live stock in their respec
tive counties. All this is prop
erly, and should be made a part of the
duties of the assessors for which their
present compensation is ample pay.
They now receive a commission of five
percent., which amounts to upwards of
$3,000 in this county, while the time re
quired to perform their duties does not
exceed four months. The change sug
gested by the Reporter would save the
taxpayers of the Territory in the aggre
gates from $10,000 to $12,000, and make
the labor performed by the assessors of
the several counties more commensurate
with the compensation they receive.
