Letters pertaining to business should be addressed Nkw Mexican Printing Co., Santa Pe, New Mexico. pST-The New Mexican is the oldest news paper in New Mexico. It is sent to every 1'oet Ofltce ir. the Territory and has a large t.id growing circulation among the intelli gent and progressive people of the south-irtst. MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 16. iVki.oomk the delegates to the 4th na tional irrigation convention. The territorial fair opens to-morrow at Allmqnerque. May success attend it. Time flies, and yet the late World's fair eteontive commissioner, T. B. Mills, has deigned to irmke no sort of a report of his stewardship touching those World's lair awards. The friends of Messrs. Reed and Alli son are very muoh pnt ont over the prominence given the tariff question by the MoKiuley boomers in Ohio in which John Sherman takes the lead. They look npon it as a move to put a quietus upon (hut element, of the party who are weary of MoKinleyism and John Sherman's peculiar methods in the interest of the Kold trust. Tan Albuquerque Citizen observes that the New Mexican has done excellent work in promoting the interests of the national irrigation convention. In this connection it may be remarked, in pass ing, that the New Mexican is always and continuously at work to promote every enterprise having in view the upbuilding of New Mexico. No pent-up Utica of pure local interest obstructs the New Mexican's vision when the welfare of the whole territory every part of it is at stake. Its policy is to treat all sections absolutely just and further the good of all New Mexico as a whole. The Springfield Republican has nomi nated Richard Olney to be the Democratic candidate for the presidency. The Re publican says: "Olney is a strong man, imperturbable, with a reverence for law and righteousness, ready and resourceful in action, a gentleman always, with hon esty, courage and boundless tenacity of purpose." The New Mexican is not prepared to say that the Republican's description of Mr. Cleveland's secretary of stats is not accurate, but it thinks its language pretty strong for a Republican authority to use in speaking of a Democrat. A THREAD-BARE HOWL. Spain defends the attempt to hold Cuba in bondage on the ground that the Cuban people are not capable of self government. This is the same old thread bare howl that the strong always put up when the weak demand justice. Great Britain said it when Amerioan independ ence was demanded. Our own govern ment said it when Texas fought for in dependence. When Colorado asked for statehood we heard it agaiu, and again when Wyoming, Montana and the Da kotas songht statehood the New England sentiment, which dominates our national affairs, yelled the same thing. They have worked the same racket on New Mexico, too, and up to date have made it stick, but it's nevertheless a monster fraud, a delusion and a make-shift ruse born only of selfish interest. TNE COST OF IRRIGATION WATER. The Inst report of the geologioal survey places the average first cost of water for irrigation throughout the western states at $8.15 an acre, while its value, wherever the right can be transferred without land, is $2(1. The Denver Field .and Farm has applied these figures to the total acreage under cultivation as shown by the last census, and made some rather interesting deductions. It finds that the total first cost of irrigating the lands from which crops were obtained in one year was $29, t; 11,0(10, and the total value of the water right was $91,412,000, the increase of value being $l,8Ol,C00, or 218.87 per cent of the investment. The latter sum may be taken as representing the value of the supply utilized. The average aunual expense of main taining the water supply was $1.07 an acre, or an aggregate of $3,794,000, this being required in keeping the canals and ditches in repair and free from sediment. The estimated first cost of irrigated lands from wbich these crops were obtained was $77,490,000, and their present value, in cluding . improvements, $296,850,000, showing an increased value of $219,360, 000, or 283.08 per cent of the investment in the land, not taking into consideration the water. The average value of the or ops raised was $11.8!) an aore, or a total of $53,067,000. These figure! have been in troduced to exhibit the cost and value of irrigation in the arid regions. The value of the unutilised water sup ply oan soaroely be estimated until more aocurate information is obtained con cerning the total amount of water and the acreage that it can be made to cover. By making certain assumptions, however, a rough estimate can be arrived at. Tak ing the average first cost of water at $8.15 an aore, and its present value at $26 an aore, the difference, $17.85, may be as sumed as the value of the water as it Hows in the stream. If one cubic foot a second will water 100 aores, then the value of one second foot is $17.85. Tak ing the figures given as the total quantity of water probably available, 360,000 sec ond feet, the total value of this water is $642,600,000. These figures ohvionsly have no claim to accuracy, but merely in dicate that, oaloulated on the most con servative basis, the water supply of the arid country must be ranked among the most important among its undeveloped resources. PRESS COMMENT. The IHrKinley Rurean Again. Our old friend and townsman, Capt. E. McB. Timothy has not only got to be a colonel down at Roswell, but has actually drawn his saber and joined a Republican league and threatens to fight the Demo crats of Chaves county. Now, colonel! White Oaks Eagle. Has It Xerv. The Reoord certainly deserves praise for its pluck in standing by its convic tions. Despite the fact that 90 per eni of its subscribers and almost I0O per cent of New Mexico Democrats are for froe silver, th Ileoord is seudine out with saeh issue the gold bug syndicate supple ment. Roswell Register. A JndiriouM Selection. Hon. ft. A. Richardson has been ap pointed by Gov. Thornton one of the re gents of the college of Agriculture and Mechauio Arts at LasCruces. Gov. Thorn ton has made a judicious seleotiou, one which will prove of much benefit to the oollege. Mr. Richardson will undoubtedly throw his influence toward removing the management of the oollege as far as pos sible from the muddy pool of politics or we are mistaken in the man. Eddy Current. Agriculture in Xew Mexico. There is enough irrigable land in the territory to produce, if properly culti vated, enough to maintain a population more than five times as large as the ter ritory now contains. No section of this country would increase more rapidly in wealth than New Mexico, were it not for the faot that millions of dollars are an nually sent out to other Btates for the products of the soil which might as well be raised here if more attention were put to irrigation. No finer wheat oan be raised than is prodnoed annually in the valley of the Rio Grande and the yield is enormous, so great in some instances that it hardly appears possible. The average yield of wheat per acre in the United States is less than fifteen bushels, yet more than eighty bushels per aore have been raised in New Mexioo. The prije paid for wheat here is nearly double what is received by wheat growers in Minnesota and yet enough native wheat can not be obtained to supply the mills already in operation here. Two new roller mills have been ereoted in the ftio Grande valley this year and others would be put up if wheat could be obtained to keep them running. What is true of wheat is true to a greater or less degree of all of the products of the soil grown in a temperate or semi-tropical olimate. The building of storage reservoirs should be enoouraged in every possible way and not a drop of water should be allowed to go to waste in the territory. Silver City Eagle.

MEW -MEXICO FFERS uneqnaled advantages to the farmer, frait grower, live stock raiser, dairyman, bee keener, and to the homfl-RAAker crenerAllv. The soil of the Pecos Valley is of high average fertility, and under irrigation produces bountiful orops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi tropical zone. In suoh fruit as the peach, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot,neotarine,oherry, quiuoe, etc., the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminann with California; while oompetent authority pronounoes its upper portions in par!a!r.: fao nnest apple country in the world. Enormous "iaius of suoh forage orops as alfalfa, sorghum and Egyptian oorn make the feeding of oattle and sut'ep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable occupation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is becoming an important industry in the Peoos Valley, a home market having been afforded for all that oan be raised, at a price yielding a handsome profit. The climate of the Pecos Valley hat no superior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lands with perpetual water-rights are for Bale at low prioet and on easy terms. The water supply of the Peoos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for oonstanoy and reliability; and this with the superb climate, productive soil and the facilities afforded by the railway whioh extends through the Valley's en tire length, will oause these lands to enjoy a oonstant, and at times rapid, inorease in value. The recent completion of the Pecos Valley Railway to Roswell will oause the more rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, including the rich Feliz seotion. The company 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 as farms with honses, orohards and fields of alfalfa and other orops. In the vioinity of Roswell several pieoes of land have been divided into five and ten acres tracts, suitable for orohards and traok farms in connection with enbnrban homes. Certain of these tracts are being planted to orohards, and will be cultivated and cared for by the company for three years nt the end of whioh period they will be handed over to the purchasers. Write for pamphlet fully describing the terms and conditions on whioh these several olnssts of traots are sold.
