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
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 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
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.
