Those thousands of Mew Mexico resi dents who are relying on the small land holdings clause of the act of congress es tablishing the oourt of private land claims for the settlement of titles to their homes are becoming very weary of the land department's delays in preparing those blanks. For years this matter has been hanging fire. The New Mexican again oalls attention to it, in hopes that prompt action may be taken. It is a subject of great import to residents of the territory and those seeking homes here,, PKESS COMMENT.

It is sent to every Post Office in the Territory and has a large d id growing circulation among the intelli gent and progressive people of the south-vat. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 18. Lobd Sackville-West's enemies have him now on the hip, sorely. He has written a book. The Pecos valley will have a magnifi cent exhibit of New Mexico products on display at the Texas state fair which opens next wt.'tk. Tuk thorough and strictly np-to-date manner in which the New Mkxioan han died the big local evonta yesterday occa sioned much favorable comment. Afi'eis tho present rush is over, per haps the executive committee of the 4th nntional Irrigation congress will find time to let the tax-payirs know what be came of that $2,500. The enstern politicians have decided that the "campaign of education" is not what they are looking for. That most transparent dodge, the cry for a short ounpaign, won't catch anybody napping in the west and south. The New Mexican is pleased to note that the Las Vegas people are at last making nn earnest endeavor to get to gether and settle among themselves the long-pending , grant controversy. May all snccess attend the effort. It means for the community everything pertain ing to prosperity and advancement. Calvin S. Bbioe has notified the Ohio Democratic committee that unless it silences Allen W. Thurman, . J. Blandin, V. A. Taylor and a few other obtrusive adherents of the white metal, he will no longer "put up" for the campaign fund. Quite as we expected. Paving the way to defeat Campbell in the interest of gold-bugism! Champion Cobbett clearly has a snap. All he has to do is talk about fighting in any of the different states and territories, and the governors, courts and press asso ciations do the rest. Any well regulated patent medicine concern in the country would jump at the chance of giving $100,000 for the gratmtioas advertising the big bruiser has reoeived during the past ten days. Would Help us All. The example set by Coloradoans in having "special days" for exhibitions of their fruits and orops could be advan tageously imitated and emulated by our people here. We might lack in quantity but we oan oertainly supply in quality, for in that respect we excel all other por tions of the Rooky mountan region. Las Vegas Examiner. The Optic to the Citizen. We must maintain respect for the law and for the administrators thereof; else lawlessness results, with all its associate evils. No judge, jury, witness, no law it self, is super-human. All partake of the weakness of man. But they are the machinery for the suppression of crime and the maintenance of good government the best of machinery to be had. He, therefore, is an enemy to society, who deliberately endeavors to undermine the influence and efficiency of the processes of law; and above all, is he to be con demned, who flings his filth on the foun tain source of the streams of justice. Las Vegas Optic Whose Contempt Cases. No man whatever his position, is free from oriticism, and no unjust strictures should be placed upon the public press to prevent such criticism; but on the other hand, an editor who admits to his columns personal attacks should hold the proofs of their truth, produce them be fore any court if demanded, and abide manfully by the result. Alas, how are the mighty fallen! The editors of the all-around critic and per forator of politicians, officials and pri vate individuals are down on their marrow-bones declaring they didn't mean to kick np so much trouble. In fact, they didn't know it happened any way. They beg to be let off easy, is the inference. It's tough enough to have to eat your own words, but when it seems neoessary to swallow some other man's, what a bit ter dose! The Citizen must be developing an ostrich digestion. Albuquerque Democrat. The Xavajoes. The party of Navajo Indians which was killing deer and beeves in the Mo gollon mountains some weeks ago has gone back to the reservation. Lieut. Jenks and the detachment of I troop, 1st cavalry, wno went after the Indians found they had already gone home. A sufficient force of cavalry should be kept on or about the .reservation to prevent these annually recurring raids being made on southwestern cattlemen's property. These Indians were off the reservation without passes or permits of any kind. They have done the same thing regularly for years past. They know they are act ing illegally. The ranohmen are entitled to protection for their property as well as their lives. And the government should maintain a sufficient force of troops to enforce its laws and protect its citizens.---Silver City Sentinel. The FES VALLEY of . . .... NEW-RflEXiC I FFERS nneqnaled advantages to the farmer, frail crrowtr. lire (took raiser, dairyman, bee keeper, and to the home-seeker generally. Tho 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 tropical zone. , In suoh fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, apricot, neotarine, cherry, quince, etc., the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminenoe with California; while oompetent authority prouounoos its upper portions in particular the finest apple country in the world. Enormous yields of suoh forage orops as alfalfa, sorghum and Egyptian oora make the feeding of eattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable occupation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is beooming an important industry in the Pecos Valley, a home market having been afforded for all that oan be raised, at a prioe yielding a hnndsome profit. Tha climate of the Peoos Valley has no superior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lands with perpetual water-rights are for aale at low prioea and on easy terms. The water supply of the Pecos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for oonstanoy and reliability; and this with the superb climate, prodnctive soil and the facilities afforded by the railway whioh extends through the Valley's en tire length, will cause theBe lands to enjoy a oonstaut, 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, inolnding the rioh Feliz eeotion. 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 vioinity of Roswell several pieoes of land have been divided into five and ten acres tracts, suitable for orohards and traok farms in oonneotion with suburban homes. Certain of tlueo tracts are being planted to orohards, and will be cultivated and cared for by the company for three years tit the end of whicli period they will be handed over to the purchasers. Write for pamphlet fully describing the terms and conditions on whioh these several olasstsof traots are sold.

FLAT-OPENING BLAKE BOOKS Ween Roswell secures that much dis cussed railroad outlet to northeastern New Mexico, 30,000 head of cattle will be fed every winter in the Pecos valley, and made ready to ship direct to the market Suoh a road will bring the Peoos region within twenty-eight hours ride of the Missouri river. The New Mexican is gratified to learn that Mr. Uagerman has fully resolved that the road shall be built, Speaking of that recent Indianapolis incident, doubtless ex-President Harri son is more than ever convinced that it pays better to practice law than to be president. It now seems probable that several other aspiring Republican states men will have occasion to arrive at the same conclusion before the national nominating conventions are held. Events are making it very evident that the presi dential plume is not within the reach of whomsoever the Republicans may nominate. lis singular that the Illinois state board of railroad and warehouse com missioners have been so tediously long in discovering that no railroad running into Chicago has a legal right to charge stockmen for switching their car loads of cattle into the Chicago stock yards. All western stockmen have been held up for years by the methods in vogue there, but if the railroad commissioners think their decision rectifying the wrong at this late day is going to deter the stock men from doing everything they can to seoure other reforms in that rotten chan nel they are much mistaken. That beef trust and its methods must bo fully shown up. The gnlf coast is but one-half the dis tance that New York is from the grain fields of the west. It follows, therefore, that the gulf is the natural outlet for the surplus product! of all this great region. The prices of these produots is fixed by Europe, not by New York or Ohioago. The quantity of these products is too vast to admit of their being cornered by any Individual or combination of indi viduals; hence if transportation rates ta the gnlf oan be secured for the shorter transit at a reasonable ratio of that tran sit to the Atlantic tea-board, it follows that the traffio will be delivered to the gnlf port whioh offers the best shipping faoilitiea to deep sea going vessels.
