While the story he told the reporter was as readable as the average romance, and henoe the New Mexican felt fully justified in giving it the wings of wide oiroulation, we do not think that either Uncle Sam or the set tiers on the lands in question need lie awake nights worrying about the dis closures oontained therein. The United States may become involved in serious international complications, but we ap prehend that none of them will grow out of a Spanish demand for $65,000,000 on account of the fiotitious Feralta grant. a4TThe New Mexican is the oldest news paper in New Mexico. It is sent to every Post Office In the Territory and has a large tad growing circulation among the intelli gent aud progressive people of the southwest. SATURDAY. OCTOBER 12. The Las Vegas Optio has a reoord that Las Vegans may well take just pride ic. The Optic is always frank, fair aud hon est in expressing its opinions and it never violates the rules of good journalism. PRESS COMMENT. Gkn. Benjamin Habsison'b law praotioe has earned him just $85,000 since he re tired from the presidential chair. Evi dently ho doesn't let his business as a party boss interfere with his devotion to his profession. The telegraph press news associations are kept pretty busy just now explaining why their reports dp not dove-tail with the (acts. They should employ a few re porters who know a nens item when tliey meet it in the middle of the rood and understand how to handle it after the meeting. We long 8o warned Tom flughes that he had better give the lawyer politicians a wide bt-r.h. They are all more or less afflicted with thpt dangerous disease, the scribbler's itch, and they are generally eager to engage in battle as long as they can do so under cover of a uom de plnme in some other man's newspaper. The Ohio papers are telling of Gov. McKinley's plans "when he becomes a private citizen again." He's going back to Cauton and settle comfortably in "the old nest." Here's a pointer for Col. Carr's anti-MoEinley bureau. Let him start a humane movement to hang every jack leg lawyer politician who hints at the ad visability of pulling MoKinley out of any such comfortable hole as that. In an effort to sneak out of its awkward predicament, the Albuquerque Citizen now declares that the malioious attaok on the supreme court printed in its columns on Wednesday last was "a communica tion." This won't do. The editorial "we" was here in all its power and significance, and this fact makes the editors of the Citizen solely responsible to the pnblio for every word the dirty screed contained, A Word for Wood Journalism. It is an unfortunate fact that most of the papers in New Mexico can not look at any matter but from a political and partisan standpoint. Whether Repub lican or Demooratio for they are alike in this, however much they may differ on high tariff or low tariff no matter can come up, which they do not as naturally run into so-oalled politics as a duck runs into water. This is assuredly unfor tunate, since it insures to every subject a partisan treatment and not a discus sion on its merits. The Optio flatters itself that it is, to some extent, at least, an exoeption to this general condition; and it most certainly endeavors, however unsatisfactory the result, to oonsider sub jects on their merits, personal and politi cal influences being eliminated as far as possible. We do not claim to be free from prejudices, but we do claim an honest effort to hold them in abeyance, while it seems to us that some, at least, of our contemporaries glory in their shame by seating their prejudices on the throne of their judgment. Las Vegas Optio. Africa's mining; Bobble. With the real and phantom mining stocks of Withwatersrand, South Africa, selling at a valuation of $750,000,000 while the total gold prodaot of the dis trict is only about $40,000,000, and the dividends paid annually do not exceed $12,000,000, it is evident that the specula tive bubble will soon burst. When the orash does come we prediot that the small French and German investors will be found to own nearly all the worthless mining claims, while all the really valu able properties will remain in English hands. When it oomes to sharp practice on a oolossal scale John Bull beats all creation. Promoters and speculators in London deal with propositions involv ing millions as freely and as easily as any others do with thousands, and they must have the big end of every scheme for their share or they will not tonoh it. They never tire of acousing Yankees of skullduggery, bat that is merely a blind to oover their own rascality. Ours are petty larceny thieves by comparison, while nothing else than grand larceny goes in London. Denver Republican. The m PES VALLEY of . . . MEW RflEXICS I FFER3 unequaled advantages to the farmer, frail grower, live stock ralstr, dairyman, baa- keeper, and to the home-seeker generally. The soil of the Peoos 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 tropical cone. In sooh fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot, nectarine, cherry, quinoe, etc, the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminenoe with California; while competent authority pronounces 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 oattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable oocupation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great valueis 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. Tha climate of the Peoos Valley has no superior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lb nds with perpetual water-rights are for sale at low prioes and on easy terms. The water supply of the l'ecos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for eonatanoy and reliability; and this with the superb climate, productive soil dud 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, increase 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 rioh Feliz section. 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 lands, partially improved lands, as well as farms with houses, orchards and fields of alfalfa and other orops. In the vicinity of Roswell several pieoes of land have been divided into five and ten acres traots, suitable for orohards and traok farms in oonneotion with suburban homes. Certain of tlit so tracts are being planted to orohards, and will be cultivated aud 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 describing the terms and conditions on whioh these several olassts of traots are sold.

VI60R MEN The Demooratio land-slides have start ed in early this year. Nothing but a land-slide expresses the result at Indian apolis on Tuesday last. The entire Dem ocratic ticket was elected by a majority approximating 3,000. This is regarded as remarkable in view of the fact that a Republican tioket was elected two years ago by a majority of over 8,000. The free coinage advoaates olaim to have had an active hand in bringing about this changed oondition of things. NEW MEXICO'S SUPREME COURT. The Albuquerque Citizen's demand that "justice be done" in the Catron-Spiess case is an absurd superfluity. The Citizen should know that these are not tbe olden days when the judicial regime of Republicanism ran mad were in vogue in New Mexico. Times have changed ;'the oharaoter of our judiciary has changed with them, and we violate no confidences in advising the Citizen to possess its soul in peace if it oan. Its clients will certainly be given juBtice; nothing more, nothing less, and as the law and the evidence demand. WithThomas Smith, Needham 0. Col lier, Napoleon B. Langhlin, Humphrey B. Hamilton and Gideon D. BanU occupy ing the supreme bench, the Niw Mexican does not believe that tbe people of this territory entertain the least fear bnt that any oause ooming before the court will receive just and proper treatment ac cording to its merits as viewed from the standpoint of disinterested judicial can dor. Those are reputable and honored men; bone fide citizens, actual residents of New Mexioo. There is not a carpet bagger among them. They are men of acknowledged ability; courage that has been tested, and well verged in the law. They have time and again shown them' selves, both individually and collectively, to be just and upright judges in the fullest sense of the term. For shame upon the newspaper that would prostitute its columns to anoh base ends as has the Citixen in the publication of its unwarranted, malioious assault up on pnblio servants of this oharaoter. unfortunate Cod-liver oil suggests consumption, which is al most unfortunate. Its best use is before vou iear consumption ; when you begin to get thin, weak, run down : then is the pru dent time to begin to take care, and the best way to take care is to supply the system with needed fat and strength. Scott's Emulsion of cod-liver oil, with hypo phosphites, will bring back plumpness to those who have lost it, and make strength where raw cod liver oil would be a burden.
