Afteb all the noise and bluster it turns out that but ono Bannock Indian was shot in the recent mi pleasantness in Wyo ming, while at Spring Valley, III., one poor negro miner was the victim. The handling of these two items is not at all creditable to the newspapers nor the tele graphic press associations. Good times are in store for the lower Pecos valley. The New Mexuun has it ou good authority that 200,000 aores of land have been sold to actual settlers down there during the past six months at an average of $35 per acre. The Pecos country makes known its advantages through the advertising columns of the New Mexican. Let other localities take courage and do likewise. ARE ALL MEN LIARS? It isn't really the fault of the newspaper mau as a rule that inaccurate statements so often find themselves in public print) The chief trouble is that nearly every body, even the preacher, sometimes, feels justified in lying to the press re porters. It ought to be made a peual offense to lie to a newspaper man. If any lying is necessary ho ought to be given a monopoly in the premises. Nine chances to one he would stick closer to the whole truth than most men, for when he lies it sees the light of day in cold type, a check that the ordinary, evary-day, all-around liar doesn't have to contend with. Here's a subject for the proposed teiritorial press association to discuss when it as sembles at Albuquerque next month. PLAN OF A PRACTICAL CALIFORNIAN. A few days ago the New Mexican printed an Associated Press dispatoh an nouncing that a Wall street syndicate had purchased a Colorado mine, capital ized it for $1,000,000 and listed the stock on the New York stock exchange. The dispatch emphasized the fact that this was the firBt Colorado mining property to be put up for call in New York and added that the syndicate was trying to get ether mines with the same objeot in view. Now comes the New York World to the front with the carefully matured plan of Irwin C. Stump, of California, well known in mining circles, for making it safe and profitable to deal in mining stocks. This the World pronounces one of the moBt startling propositions ever mooted in that region of wonders known as Wall Btreet, but nevertheless it can didly admits that the plan is worthy of serious consideration. Mr. Stump proposes the organization of a large and reputable company or syn dicate for the purpose of dealing in gold and silver mines ou a strictly businefs basis, just as any other properties are dealt in, buying and selling mines on a small commission. He sees no reason why the mining business, if properly conducted, is Dot as safe and legitimate at any other, and is persuaded that the field may be made a most inviting one for capital. In unfolding his very sensi ble plan be says: "If a mine-owner wants to tell a mine there is no reason why he should have to deal with sharpers who will cheat him and then cheat the invest or! in the mining stocks. If a oonoern is equipped with the best mining experts they should do it for a small per rentage. As a result, mining stocks, represent ing an outiay of money ouly, and not an output of wind, would pay dividends and would be dealt in by conservative invest ors. If a solid company hnd certified that they had paid so muoh fy a mine, ou the basis of such and such tests, the investor would know where he stood." Unquestionably the practical Cali foruian is ou the right track. The diffi culty with what has been properly termed mining speculation in the past has chietly grown oat of the greed of investors for quick and inordinate profits, aud the fact that rogues, perceiving the expectations of their clients, have almost invariably fed this unreasoning greed with promises of millions in an incredibly short space ef time. Of course such expectations have usually been disappointed and thus mining stocks have come to be very gen erally regarded with distrust. Mr. Stump's plan for remedying this evil so injurious to the legitimate mining industry, coming at a time when money is loosening up and long idle capital is seeking sate investments, is most oppor tune. If carried into practical effect it could not help proving highly benefioial both to investors and mine owuers, aud would, moreover, so stimulate the de velopment of mines that the nation's out put of the preoioua metals would be large ly augmented. PItESS COMMENT. Comparative Value of the. IHfl'ereiit CiittintCM of Alfalfa. Analyses made by Mr. Oscar Snow at the New Mexico Agricultural college, the accuracy of which is vouched for by Professor Arthur Goss, show that tho first cutting of alfalfa is muj.li higher in nutritive value than the second aud sub sequent cuttings. Taking the value of the first cutting at $8 per ton, the feeding value of the second and third cuttings is only $7.25, and that of the fourth cutting $6.80. It is commonly believed that the alfalfa of southern New Mexico is of better quality for feeding than that grown in other parts; but the analyses do not show this. Sufficient tests have not been made here or elsewhere to settle this point definitely, but so far as they go the Mesilla valley appears well up to the average, while the first cutting is about 7 per cent above. Las Ci uces Farm and Orchard. Silver and I he Handles. There are several rank gold-bug sheets published in New Mexico. Perhaps they are sincere in their utterances, but their views do not meet with the approval of nine-tenths of the people residing within the boarders of this territory. The im mediate vicinity in which these papers circulate may not be effected by the low price of silver, but the same is not true of the territory as a whole. Every ranch man and fruit grower in San Juan county has been made to suffer and is suffering at this time because of class legislation, legislation against the white metal. No prosperity in the silver camps adjoining means uo market for our produce and fruit. The result is apparent. Those ranchmen who are so unfortunate as to have plasters on their ranches can not pay the interest on the debt, to say noth ing about the principal and their taxes. Business houses suffer a general falling off in trade, and the wage earner must nec essarily receive less compensation for bis services. Neither New Mexico nor the entire great west can become really pros perous without a better prioe is received for her chief product silver two or three jitn crow sheets to the contrary notwith standing. P. 8. Now listen to their howl about the increase in wages east of the Mississippi. San Juau Index. 1118 Of VALLEY XI I FFERS anequaled advantages to the farmer, fruit grower, live etook raiser, dairyman, bee keeper, and to the home-seeker generally. The soil of the Pecos Valley is of high average fertility, and under irrigation produces bountiful crops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate aud some of those of the semi tropioal zone. In such fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, apricot, nectarine, cherry, quince, etc, the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminenoe with California; while competent authority pronounces its upper portions in particular the finest apple country in the world. Enormous yields of such forage crops as alfalfa, sorghum and Egyptian corn make the feediug of oattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable occupation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is beooming an important industry in . the Peoos Valley, a home market having been afforded for all that oau be raised, at a prioe yielding a handsome profit. The climate of the Peoos Valley has no superior iu the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lands with perpetual watei -rights are for sale at low prices and on easy torms. The water supply of the Peoos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for constancy and reliability; and this with the superb climate, productive soil aud the facilities afforded by tho railway whioh extends through the Valley's en tire length, will oanse these lands to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, increase in value. The reoent completion of the Pecos Valley Railway to Roswell will cause the more rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, including the rioh Feliz section. The oompany has recently purchased many of the older improved farms about Roswell, and has now for sale lands to meet the wants of all raw lauds, partially improved lands, as well us farms with houses, orchards and fields of alfalfa and other orops. Iu the vicinity of Roswell several pieces of land have been divided into five and ten aores traots, suitable for orohards aud track farms in connection with suburban homes. Certain of these tracts are being planted to orchards, and will be cultivated and cared for by the company for three years at the end of which period they will be handed over to the purchasers. Write for pamphlet fully describing the terms and conditions on which these several classes of traots are sold.
