The tamenesa of the Citizen these days is very tiresome. The latest war scare Is in the snaps of gossip from Havana, which proposes to inarch 200,000 Spanish veterans into the I'uituJ States when the Cuban rebellion is crushed. Coming to collect, a la Oreat Britain, the $65,000,000 for the Per alta land grant perhaps! The executive oommittee of the irriga tion congress has not as yet found time to make ft report as to what became of that $2,500 in public fuuds appropriated by the legislature. Mr. Joseph Saint, ohairman of the Albuquerqne city oo mmee, says not a cent or this money was used by Albuquerque. This sets the tax payers on the tip-toe of expectation, They would like to know where the pub lic money went to. The Chicago Tribune speaks right out in meeting and suggests that it is a ques tion "whether there is not a great waste of Christian effort as well as of money in these attempts to convert Chinese who won't be converted, and whether it would not oe more practical as well as more Christian to ooncentrats some of this ef fort and money upon the heathen at our very doors who know neither Christ nor Confuoios." The suggestiou is timely. Plenty of work at home for these zealous Christians to look after. A citizen down in the Pecos valley, who had tired of the imposition in loss of patience, time and money annually put upon the fruit growers of New Mexi co by irresponsible nursery men, has gone after one Johnson, of Dallas, with facts and figures that are not unpleasant to contemplate. New Mexicans have for years suffered from this olass of fruit pests, and Mr. James A. Rawlee, of Hag erman, has rendered the public a servioe in denouncing his method and exposing them. The New Mexican doesn't olaim to be in the confidences of the gentlemen who are running the Corbett-Fitzsimmons mill; nevertheless it can give its readers a straight tip. The fight will take place down near Juarez. EI Paso and its neighbor across the way are pulling some powerful strings to that end and as El Paso recognizes the money value of the proposition and is ambitious to beoome a sporting center, we must hope her every success in her undertaking. There's got to be a sportman's paradise some where in the United States, why not at or near El Paso? faculties, could muster the brazen hardi hood to assume the role that Mr. Hughes has undertaken to play before the people of New Mexioo. We frankly admit that we were unable to give oredenoe to the incredible story until we saw the con clusive proof in black and white. Mr. Hughes is well known to the people of the territory as the managing editor of the Albuquerque Citizen. Iu his sworn answers to the interrogatories propound ed to him respecting the publication of the malicious and libelous article that oaused his arrest for contempt of court, he admitted that, on the day the article iu question was published, he was on duty as usual at his offioe as such man aging and responsible editor: yet he had the audacious effrontery to tell the oonrt on his solemn oath and otherwise in the most positive manner that he knew noth ing whatever as to the authorship of the objectionable article, that he found the manusoript type-written and unsigned on his desk in the morning, that he plaoed it on the hook for the printers without sufficient examination to realize what it contained, and that if he had perused the article carefully he would not have per mitted its publication. The recital of the facts that the article in question was the conspicuous feature of the Citizen's editorial page on October 9, ocoupying about three columns of space; that it was evidently prepared with more than ordinary labor and pains; that it employed the editorial "we" with freedom and frequenoy; that it bore di rectly on the grave oharges pending be-1 fore the supreme oourt against the per sonal and political idol of the editor of the Citizen, and that, when the intelligent proof reader attracted the attention of the editor to the dangerous statements oontained therein, he suggested no modi fications, only tends to heighten the in credibility of the preposterous statement set up by Mr. Hughes in his sworn an swer. No one capable of forming a judg ment in the premises believes that his representations concerning the article are true. It is absurd to sUDDOse that Thom as Hughes aooepted and published with out question a purely anonymous article of the kind desoribed. The statement is an insult to reason. It is as abhorrent to truth as a vacuum is to nature. It is im possible. Why did Thomas Hughes do this thing? No one believes that he wrote the objectionable artiole nor does any one doubt that he certainly knows the name of the author thereof. Why did he add the offense of perjury to his confes sion of contempt of oonrt rather than disclose the authorship of that miserable artiole. The answer rushes to our pen point. Because he has been so long ac customed to yielding blind and slavish obedience to the dominating and un scrupulous bosses of his party that it has become second nature to him to do bo, and when those malign influences were ex erted upon him to save the guilty writer from exposure he knew of no other course to pursue than the shameful one he adopted ; Hughes deserves to suffer for his of fenses in oonneotion with this wretched affair, but his crime is a minor one com pared with that of the masterful and crafty coward who wrote the article, virtually forced its publication and now skulks in imaginary seourity behind the transpar ent perjury of his unhappy and unfortu nate tool. If that man has a spark of manhood, a quantity sufficient to be dis coverable poised upon the point of a cambric needle, he will not let Thomas Hughes, doubtless more sinned against than sinning, suffer alone. Will he have the manhood to disolose himself and shoulder his share of the responsibility f Or does he fancy himself so secure in his present hiding that he cau afford to re main silent? If so, he is deluding him self. His sin will find him out. The; FES VALLEY NE of . . . W Wi IFFERS unequaled advantages to the farmer, fre.it no. live staak nlur. dalrvman. bee keeper, and to the home-seeker generally. The soil of the Peoos Valley is of high average fertility, and under irrigation prodnoes bountiful orops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi tropioal zone. Iu such fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot,neotarine,oherry, quinoe, 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 orops as alfalfa, sorghum aud Egyptian corn stake the feeding of oattle and she.ep 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 home market having been afforded for all that oan be raised, at a prioe yielding a handsome profit. Tim climate of the Peoos Valley ha no saperior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and' health restoring. ... Lands with perpetual water-rights are for sale at low prioes 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 oause these lands to enjoy a ooustant, aud at times rapid, iuorease in value. The recent oompletion of the Peoos Valley Railway to Roswell will -oause the more rapid 'settlement and development of the opper portions of the Valley, inolnding 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, 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 track farms in oonneotion with suburban homes. Certain of these trncts are being planted to orohards, 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 which these several olassts of traots are sold.

THEM Am Fa Lands. UNDER IKBIGaTING DITCHES. Choice Mountain and Valley lands near the Foot I, Hi The Pueblo Chieftain says: "This is the natural supply point for New Mexioo. Pueblo has as good railroad lines toward the east or any other direotion as Denver, it is as good a point for manufacturing a much better point for articles of iron or steel, and now if the Rio Grande rail road will build us an extension to the Pecos valley we will be muoh obliged." We are glad to hear the Chieftain talking thus. It is at last awaking to the fact that a rich empire lies at its door down at this end of the D. & R. G. system. In years past the Chieftain has been wont to belittle New Mexioo and her resources until the merobants and business men of that town have actually come to look upon New Mexioo as a land only of horned toads and caotf. Let the Chief tain but insist that Pueblo people meet New Meiicsns half way and itself lend ns a helping hand and Pueblo as well as New Mexico will gain thereby. Ikew Fast California Train.

Ihe words at that time were prophetic. Cen ter township, in which Indianapolis is looated, went Democratic, and so did the Union at the ensning election.
