Letters pertaining to business should be addressed Nxw Mexican Printing Co., Santa Fe, New Mexico. sTThe New Mexican is the oldest news paper in New Mexico. It is sent to every Post Office in the Territory and has a large r..id growing circulation among the intelli gent and progressive people of the southwest. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 20. liVisnoBS to the territorial fair are elo quent in their praises of the magninoent mineral exhibit from White Oaks. Santa 1?k seems to be strictly in it when it comes to polling off great base ball games and magnificent fruit exhibits. Tre lower Pecos valley will enjoy a rod letter day to-morrow. The people of the enterprising towns of Eddy, Hnger man and Roswell have thrown their doors wide open to the irrigation delegates. It seemed to be the unanimous senti ment of the national irrigation excur sionists, who visited this city yesterday, that seeing New Mexico without visiting Santa Fe would be like seeing Hamlet with Uamlot left out. They would have been very mneh disappointed if this feature of the program had been omitted. No citizen can look upon the display of orohard and farm products at. the ter ritorial fair and not feel a renewed sense of pride in New Mexico's present and future greatnessi The show of fruits of the soil this year, for the first time in the history of the fair association, approaches justice to our producing capacity. In the event that President Cleveland should magnanimonsly appoint ex-President Harrison to that vacant fish com: missionership, we can not help wonder ing whether Senator Matthew Stanley Quay would oppose the confirmation of t he appointment. It would be real mean, hut it is well enough to remember that Quay is built that way. The Socorro Advertiser issued a most creditable special edition on Saturday, wherein the superior advantages of So corro as a commercial, mining and smelt ing center are most attractively set forth. Such papers contribute to the general ad vancement of the entire territory and the enterprise that inspires them deserves substantial encouragement. Tub New Mexican regrets exceedingly that the Albuquerque Citizen should feel so very sore over the fact that the dele gates to the national irrigation congress insisted on carrying out the original program as laid down by the executive committee. The Citizen resorted to very selfish and unjust methods in endeavor ing to prevent the delegates from visit ing Santa Fe, Las Cruces, Eddy and Ros well, yet nevertheless the excursion was all that it promised to be from the start, and the result is that rare practical object lessons have been shown and are now be ing Bhown the delegates and their friends. This excursion will prove of great benefit to the cause of irrigation generally, and will help all Now Mexico thereby carry ing out the original intention of the dele gates from the territory who last year worked so earnestly to have the conven tion held at Albuquerque. ON BROAD LINES. The fact that the New Mexico delega tion to the national irrigation congress refused to permit its chairman to cast a solid vote for Phoenix, as the next point for holding the convention one year hence, in no wise means any antagonism to Arizona or to Phoenix. Those dele gates who insisted on Lincoln or some other point enst of the Rookies as the proper place for the next convention con tended, and with much good reason, that the broadest possible lines should be fol lowed id pushing this great national pro ject of irrigation. They held that 'the Rocky mountain region, which has so much at stake in this undertaking to make irrigation part and parcel of our national policy, could well afford to be magnan imous, and that if the management were narrowed down to a mere looal phase it would cripple the whole west in that it would create dissensions among our own people and weaken our hold upon that broad sentiment oovering everything west of the Missouri valley upon the united strength of which we must depend for success. Another year we hope to see all semblance of this disposition to local ize and narrow the work of this national convention entirely eliminated and trust that the convention for the following year will be pushed eastward as far as practicable in the direction of the center of western population. TALKING SOUND 8ENSE. Why should $100,000,000 of gold be re. served in the treasury expressly for the redemption of treasury notes, and none of it ever be used for that purpose? This most timely interrogation is put by the New York Journal, and answered in atone of frankness that is, to say the least, most extraordinary among newspapers printed in the Atlantic states. On Friday about one and a half mil lions of notes were redeemed, says the Journal, cutting the reserve, down con siderably below the hundred million line. The law only requires such a ooin reserve as the seoretary of the treasury deems a safe one to provide for note redemption at all times. Because when J ohn Sherman was seoretary of the treasury he fixed the amount at $100,000,000, it does not follow that his snocessors must all be governed by his deoision. Matters would be much simplified if the secretary would announce that the treasury will at all times redeem in coin, as heretofore; that he will be bis own judge as to the amount neoessary to be kept on hand for that purpose; that no particular sum will, as heretofore, be rigidly fixed as the minimum, but that it will vary with the varying requirements; and, finally, that the gold transactions of the treasury will cease to be given out for publication from day to day. Nothing makes a man a hypochondriac so surely as to be always counting his pulse and taking his temperature. It is time for the business community to be saved from the unwholesome policy of the treasury department of publicly stat ing ita petty transactions of note redemp tion, and alarming the public with the assurances that it is hustling around every day to borrow enough to keep the gold reserve up to the $100,000,000 line.

The m FES VALLEY of . . . ;w vjexo WE I FFERS unequaled advantages to the farmer, trait grower, live stook raiser, dairyman, bee keeper, and to the home-seeker irenerallv. The soil of the Pecos Valley is of high average fertility, and under irrigation produoes bountiful crops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi tropioal zone. In such fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, apricot, neotarine, cherry, quince, etc., the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence with California; while competent authority pronounces its upper portions in particular the finest apple oountry in the world. Enormous yields of such forage crops as alfalfa, sorghum and Egyptian oorn make the feeding of cattle and sheep 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 Pecos Valley, a home market having been afforded for all that oan be raised, at a price yielding a handsome profit. Thi climate of the Pecos Valley has no superior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health roBtoring. . Lands with perpetual water-rights are for sale at low prices and on easy terms. The water supply oi the Pecos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for constancy 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 oanse these lauds to enjoy a constant, Bud at times rapid, increase in value. The recent completion of the Peoos Valley Railway to Roswell will cause 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 houses, orchards and fields of nUalfu and other crops. In the vioinity of Roswell several pieoes of land have been divided into five and ten acres tracts, suitable for orchards and traok farms in connection with suburban homes. Certain of these tracts are being planted to orchards, 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 classes of traots are sold.
