It is sent to every Post Office in the Territory and has a large fcjd growing circulation among the intelli gent and progressive people of the southwest. TUESDAY. OCTOBER t. The Eddy Argus prints an extraordi narily fine report of the visit of the national irrigation delegates to the Pecos valley. The editor of the Gauntlet seems to hnve had no difficulty in breaking into the columns of the Socorro Advertiser. As usual, he assaults big men from am-bush. President Diaz, of Mexico, reports his country iu a high state of prosperity, Perhaps the most important reoommeada tion in his message is the abolition of in terstate duties throughout the republic. It may be true, as the gold men assert, th it silver is dead. If it is there promises to be the most lively funeral along about next spring that the politicians of this great nation have ever been oalled to attend. The Arizoua Copper coinpnny, at Clifton, is now snecessfully treating ore that runs as low as 3 per cent in copper This factshowswhat improved machinery has done for the copper producers of the oountrr. Senator Bbioe refers to ex-Gov. Camp bell, of Ohio, as a presidential possibility. That is most kind. It is unfortunate that ex-Gov. Campbell can not reciprocate. Senator Brice is a presidential impossibility. The Albuquerque Citizen is permitting its antipathy for free ooinage to get the best of it. At any rate, supposedly in the interest of the goldites and the Mo Kinley bureau, it is saying some very ugly things about ex-Gov. Prince. This is ' the west's cornucopia year. Drought and frost have given the farmers at the east a backset. Things are muoh worse in New York and other Atlantic coast states than have been reported. No wonder western grain is advancing in price. A Washington dispatch Btates that 1,000 more names were added to the pension list in August than were taken off. Abont $1,000,000 more wbb paid out for pensions than iu August, 181)4. The attention of the esteemed Raton Bacge is oalled to this matter. The Boston Herald Bays that Cleveland would not accept a presidential nomina tion next year except it were urged upon him by a thoroughly united party, and perhaps not even then. The Herald is quite olose to Mr. Cleveland, but possibly not olose enough to read his mind. Seobetaby Hoke Smith's newspaper, the Atlanta Journal, states that "the speech" of the first day's dedication exer cises of the Atlanta exposition was deliv ered by the negro orator, Booker T.Wash ington. "It was a speech," says the Jour nal, "which was full of the best statesman ships speech which outlined like aproph . eoy the course of his race to success, enlightenment and prosperity, Washing ton had the opportunity of his life, and made the speech of bis life or anybody else's life, for that matter." The nervy Bryau, of Nebraska, has per haps accomplished more for the cause of free ooinage than any other Democrat in the west outside of Bland. He is still traveling and talking and his reception everywhere amounts to an ovation. Out on the Pacific coast the other day Mr. Bryan said: "We hope to control the next Demooratio national convention. The free ooinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1 is a prinoiple of the Democratic party which is imbedded in it bo deep that all the bond issues io the world can not shake it. There is a strong silver sentiment growing up all over the ooun- try. Since the 4th of March, I have been through nearly all the southern states and fonnd the people strongly pro-silver." WESTERN STATES CONFERENCE. The importance of the western states conference, to be held at Topeka, to-day, to-morrow and Wednesday, oan hardly be over-estimated. At this oonferenoe the best means of utilizing the superb advantages afforded the west by the deep water harbor on the golf at Galveston, with a view to as certaining what the farmers of the west oan most profitably produce for expor tation and determining where to buy the imports they need to oonsume, will be intelligently discussed by thoroughly praotioal men. In order to realize the immensity of the Interests involved in this disonssion, it ii necessary to keep in view a few aallent facts. The reader' attention is first called to the fact that, in 1891, the exports of farm prodnots from the United States, the greater part of which came from the region west of the Mississippi river, amounted to $(169,109,42!). This year, with a corn crop estimated at 2,600, 000,000 bushels, the exports from the western farms promise to be still larger. Iu this connection, the reader should also bear in mind that, besides miscellaneous imports valued at millions, the people of the west annually consume $17,000,000 worth of Bugar and $15,000,000 worth of coffee, that the bulk of this sugar is im ported from. Cuba, and that the coffee all comes from Mexico, Central and South America and other foreign lands. Then, in the light of the faots that the cost of transportation by steamship is one-fifth and by sailing vessel one-tenth of the cost of transportation by rail, stody the following significant table of distances: Miles to Miles to From New Yorls Galveston Little Rock, Ark 1.155 400 St. Louis, Mo 945 90 San Francisco, Ctl 2.5ti0 l.tttKi Topeka, Kas 1,225 BH5 Des Moines, Iowa l.UIW 830 Lincoln, Neb 1,225 7H5 Cheyenne, Wyo 1.050 9K0 Hoise City, Idaho 2, W0 1,400 SautaFe, N.M 1.K05 770 Denver.Colo 1,670 915 Salt Lake City, Utah l.m 1,235 Helena, Mont 1,20 1,495 Oregon City, Ore 2,240 l,t50 Carson City, Nev 2,:iS0 1,50 Tttooma, Wash 2,550 1,000 Tucson. A. T 2,000 000 Dallas, Texas 1,0.50 2K0 Guthrie, O. T 1.250 400 Totals 81,1105 1S.71H) It is needless to multiply words for the purpose of making plainer the enormous saving in freight charges that must result to the people of the west from the wise utilization of deep water harbors on the gulf. The figures we have cited plentifully speak for themselves. And besides these tangible advantages, computable in dollars and cents, it will be peculiarly gratifying to the people of the vast and fruitful region naturally tributary to Galveston to know that they are forever emancipated from Blavish de pendence upon New York. So the New Mexican heartily says God speed to the western states conference in Topeka. PKESS COMMENT. Small Varnisthe Thine. What auy country needs is small farm ers, each prosperous and happy; good roads, and a population that look upon agriculture not as the business of boors and incompetents, but as demanding the highest kind of intelligence and worthy to occupy the attention of any man. The more small, well cultivated farms there are, the more substantial will be the country. It is in the very nature of things that an irrigated section will pay best when oocupied by small farms. Eddy Argus. As to the Fair. - Keen observation and some little ex perience warrants us in saying that not withstanding the pigs and pumpkins, the poultry and posies, the fruits and flowers, the cattle and cabbages, and all other side issues, the races draw the crowds just as surely as the high kicking ballet dancers draw the baldheadB to the pit and the female norobats bring the deacons to the cirons. Let one raoe be rotten, and ir leaves a bad impression upon everybody iu regard to the whole meeting. The Albnquerqne fair manage ment should bear this in mind. Races upon an association track should be above suspicion. Boswell Record. Scott's Emulsion will cure a stubborn cough when all the ordinary cough remedies have failed. Try it for yourself. We are putting up a fifty-cent size chiefly for that purpose. A cough is usually the telltale of a weakened physical condition. Correct that condition by the use of a proper remedy and the cough will soon disappear. Scott's Emulsion of Cod-liver Oil and Hypophosphites acts in two ways. It nourishes, strength ens and builds up the system, at the same time allays the irrita tion and heals the inflammation. It gives immediate relief at night from the choking sensation so often accompanying a cold. Don't be persuaded to take a tubsUlutef Scott 4 Bowne, N. Y, All Druggists. 50c. and $1.

The soil of the PeooB 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, cherry, quince, etc., the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence with California; while competent authority pronounoes its upper portions in particular the finest apple country in the world. Enormous yields of suoh forage crops as alfalfa, sorghum and Egyptian eorn make the feeding of cattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable oooupation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is beooming an important industry in the Peoos Valley, a borne market having been afforded for all that ean be raised, at a price yielding a handsome profit. The climate of the Peoos Valley has no aaperior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lands with perpetnal water-rights are for sale at low prices 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 which extends through the Valley's en tire length, will cause these lands to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, inorease in value. The recent completion of the Peoos Valley Railway to Roswell will oause the more rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, inoluding the rich Feliz seotion. The company has recently purchased many of the older improved farms abont Roswell, and has now for sale lands to meet the wants of all raw lands, partially improved lands, as well as farms with houses, orohards and fields of alfalfa and other orops. Iu the vioinity of Roswell several pieoes of land have been divided into five and ten acres traots, suitable for orchards and traok farms in connection with suburban homes. Certain of these traots are being planted to orohards, and will be oultivated and oared for by the company for three years at the end of whioh period they will be handed over to the purchasers. Write for pamphlet fully dencribing the terms and conditions on whioh these several classes of traots are sold.
