manner in whioh be unbosomed him
self yesterday to a Mew Mexican repre
sentative respecting the alleged Spanish
claimants of the 12,000,000 and odd acres
he sought to secure, and the prospect of
a oolossal claim against the United States
growing out of these pretensions that
will more than off-set the Mora claim, is
very much in point. 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.

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
Africa's mining; Bobble.
With the real and phantom mining
stocks of Withwatersrand, South Africa,

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

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.

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

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.

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.
