The authorities of Hawaii have tnrnod ex Queen Liliaokftlani loose and the world contiuues to revolve jtiot as usual. The withering comments of jflie Eng lish newspapers on the Defender-Valkyrie incident are forcing us to the re luctant conclusion that John Bull disap prove of Uncle 8am. PRESS COMMENT. Fiue Ai.akm Foiukkb is bravely fight ing the war over in Ohio. Not having an army register handy, we are uuable to give details as to the command with which the old hero fought and bled dur ing the war. Our deep-seated impres sion is, however, Hint Foraker belongs to the "putrid reminiscence" variety of warriors, who fight exclusively with their mouths. HARD PUSHED FOR "CREAT LEADERS." It will be remembered that Tom Piatt one time resigned a sent in the Uuited Stntes senate because, iu a tit of the sulks, the really great and brilliant Roscoe Conk ling resigned hia Beat. The Now York legislature then had sufficient self-respect to decline to re-elect either of the over confident gentlemen, and, nfter Mr. Coukling died a disappointed and broken hearted man, it was hardly supposed that l'latt would have the hardihood to recall a most disagreeable reminiscence by ob truding his personality into public view. Yet, in spite of the faot that he is a clear case of "lingering superfluous ou the stage," he now seems to be a recognized Republican mnohino buss in the Empire state, aud very likely aspires to the seat in the senate that he was unable to render much more vacant by resignation than it was when he occupied it as a misfit. The Republicans of New York must be rather hard pushed for "great leaders" these days. SENATOR VEST STANDS BY SILVER. Day before yesterday the Associated Press gravely announced that, in an in terview at Carlsbad, Senator Vest, of Mis souri, had declared his opinion that free coinage at the old ratio was no longer possible. The New Mexican was obliged to leave something out that day and selected this paragraph for the waste basket because it was persuaded that it was a lie. The judgment of the New Mex ican was fully sustained yesterday after noon when the Associated Press convict ed itself by sending out from New York Senator Vest's point blank denial that he had changed his views on the silver ques tion. He added that "the alleged con versation at Carlsbad never occurred." Just how the Associated Press, which pretends to be absolutely non-partisan, justifies itself in taking such improper liberties with the truth we are unable to imagine. AGRICULTURE IN NEW MEXICO. Plant life depends on four elemental properties: Light, water, heat and the soil. Given tho first three, and any plant known in nature will grow. The last is only important as an alembic, fur mixing them. In New Mexico, we have an almost con stant sunshine, a genial heat, and our mountain waters are filled with the very best fertilizing matter. It is a fact that fields and orchards subjected to a long series of irrigation become, yearly, richer and more productive. This is beoaose the chemical food of the plants, carried in the water, is in excess of the needs of agriculture. New Mexico's Boil, water and climate are not the only advantages she possesses over her principal rivals California and Colorado. These enable the farmer and horticulturist to produce large crops, of superior quality, with certainty. But after the production of orops, the farmer must consider his market, its accessi bility, and the remuneration it offers. New Mexioo's position gives her marked advantages in this direction. Tbe season of maturity is about three weeks earlier than in Colorado, and New Mexioo's central location commands the markets, for hardy fruits, about ten days ahead of California. Closeness to markets is another ad vantage. Fruit oan be allowed to remain longer on the trees in New Mexico, be fore shipment, than elsewhere. Thus it preserves a better flavor and appearance. For these reasons it commands about 30 per oent better prices. " Fruits that some from California and sell for 2 oents a ponud, if raised and shipped from New Mexioo would bring 8 oents a ponnd or o?er. , Tbe mining distriots and towns make profitable home markets and steady de mand for frnita, vegetables and all other home prodnots. Las Vegas Optic. The is all Kijclit. A very lively discussion has been cre ated in the Eagle office over the spelling of the name of our neighboring oonuty on the east, and as to whether it should terminate with a "z" or "s." The nctcre nting that county spells it Chavez and Chaves. The name of J. Francisco, for whom the county was named, is spelled with a "z." Like the case of Arkansas, it will probably require an aot of the legis lature to settle the vexed question. White Oaks Eagle. A Mi re w a Financier. E. L. Poster, the reoeiver of the defunct First National bank of Deming, does not propose to let a ohanoe for making a dime slip by. Occasionally drafts will be sent to the bank, by mistake, for oolleo tion. Instead of correcting the evident mistake and turning the collection over to the Demiug bank, he attempts to make the collection himself and gather in the fee for doing it. Recently a business house in Lordsbnrg received a letter from the reoeiver of the defnnot bank saying he had a draft on them and would they please remit. The house drawn on immediately wrote to Mr. Foster telling him to pay the draft and charge it to its nccount with the defunct bank. As the house has not yet received the canoelled draft it is feared that Mr. Foster refused to pay it as requested. Lordsburg Liberal. Iliners KurouraKed. A greater interest in mining affairs is exhibited in and around Cerrillns than ever before. .Every morning there are numerous parties, nearly all strangers, leaving town in every direction, visiting mining claims which may be specially attractive, or making a general tour of the distriots surrounding ns. This in dicates that this vicinity is engnging the attention of mining men to a degree hitherto unknown and can not fail to be of benefit to us. Just at this tims there are numerous undeveloped or only partly developed properties which may be picked up at a very reasonable figure, and which, if handled by parties of means, can bo soon put in shape to produce great wealth, and that too with a comparatively Bmall outlay. Claims of this kind appear to be most inviting to the visiting stranger, and sev eral deals have been made and more are under way involving properties which, white they prospect well, have hitherto produced nothing because the owners have beeti unable to command the money neces sary for development. The outlook is most enconraging. More work is being done on undeveloped claims than ever before, every prospector in the hills is busy and a great many of them are letting go a portion of their holdings, thereby putting themselves into a posi tion to handle those retained to a better advantage. We may confidently look for great ac tivity all along the line. Cerrillos Rustler. The Wnbanh Kailroad.

K1EW VJEXO FFERS unequaled advantages to the farmer, fnit grower, live stook raiser, dairyman, bee keeper, and to the home-seeker generally. The soil of the Peoos Valley is of high average fertility, and under irrigation produoes bountiful orops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and frnits of the temperate and some of those of the semi tropical zone. In such fruit ns the peach, pear, plum, grape, prune, apricot, nectarine, cherry, quince, etc, the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminenoe with California; while oompetent authority pronounoes its upper portions in particular the finest apple oountry in the world. Enormous yields of such forage orops as alfalfa, sorghum aud Egyptian oorn make the feeding of cattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable oooopation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great valne is beooming an important industry in the Peoos Valley, a home market having been afforded for all that oan be raised, at a prioe yielding a handsome profit. The climate of the Peoos Valley has no superior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoriug. Lauds with perpetual watet-rights are for sale at low prloei and on easy terms. The water supply o( tho Pecos 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 which extends through the Valley's en tire length, will cause these binds to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, inorease in value. ' The reoent completion of the Pecos Valley Hallway to Roswell will cause the more rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, inoluding the rioh Feliz seotion. Tbe company has recently purchased many of the older improved farms about Roswell, and has now for sale lands to meet the wauts of all raw lands, partially improved lands, as well as farms with houses, orchards and fields of alfalfa aud other orops. In the vicinity of Roswell several pieces of land have been divided into five and ten acres tracts, suitable for orchards and truck farms in oonneotion with suburban homes. Certain of these tracts are being planted to orohards, and will be cultivated and oared 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 whioh these several olassts of traots are sold.
