It is sent to every Poft Office in the Territory and has a large tJd growing circulation among the intelli gent and progressive people of the south-vat. SATURDAY. NOVEMBER . Tni New Mexican prints the news. Santa Fe county's public sohools are doing splendidly under the vigilant oare of Superintendent Cosme Herrera. The nnkindest cut of all is John Sher man's denunciation of Brice. That's hitting a man when he is down with a vengeance. The Populists have sadly lost their grip not only in Kansas, but in Colorado, Illinois, Mississippi, Kentuoky and else where. They may make a feint at keep ing up their party of organization next year, but we doubt it. Better get back to first principles and take sides with one or the other of the oUl parties. Let's light it out on straight lines in future. "COOD J3URNALISM Our esteemed contemporary, the Deal ing Headlight, is mistaken. The New Mexican assumes no superiority over its colleagues of the press throughout, the territory. It puts itself up on no pin nacle. It does, however, reserve the right to "talk back" once in a while. When its enemies become too reckless in their statements, when newspapers impose upon journalistic license, or when the public good would seen to demand that it differ with its fellow craftsmen, it has always spoken out in meeting, but never theless it esteems the good will of the New Mexico press in general and the weekly press in particnlar, recognizing the latter as an able and potent factor in righting all wrongs and defending the interests of the people. We are happy to say that we have never had to take issue with the Headlight for a breach of publio faith or for lending its columns toward the disgraoe of good journalism. A BIT PERSONAL. The New Mexican is averse to consum ing space in its columns for replying to attacks made upon its editor by either the lawyer-politioians possessed of scrib bler's itch or newspaper men who so recklessly juggle with truth as does Allen Kelley. In the case of the latter, how ever, who, as is pretty well known, has never lost an opportunity to misrepresent the New Mexican under its present man agement, we desire to abrogate the rule long enough to say: Mr. Eelley's oft-repeated charge in the Independent Democrat that Max Frost, the former owner of the New Mexican, and a Republican, has had, since January 1, 1894, and now has, any influence in mould ing the political policy of this paper un der the present management, ii not based on truth nor fact i.i the remotest degree. The straightforward, upright and fear' less Demooratio policy pursued by the New Mexican sinoe its present editor as sumed control is itself a refutation of this charge. The files of the paper amply testify to the truthfulness of these statements. IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH. The Albuquerque Citizen approvingly copies the appended truthless and con temptible editorial paragraph from the Socorro Chieftain: "By what rule of law do Tom Smith and Judge Langhlin draw an order on the territorial auditor for all the funds but $4.76 in the territorial treasury, coming from the Albuquerque National bank and savingB bank, that were appropriated by the last legislature to hold courts in the several districts with? Some one who has the Interest of New Mexico at heart had better look into this thing. What business have those fellows with the pub lio money, anyway f" We frankly confess that we approach the task ot dealing with suoh mental and moral microbes as the so-called editors of the Sooorro Chieftain and the Albuquer que Citizen with a good deal of reluc tance; but, realizing that God for some insorutable purpose permits these poison emitting creatures to have the use of suoh dangerous facilities as newspapers, and that even the minutest partiolee of poison may produce misohievona results, we pro ceed to the treatment of the paragraph quoted in the same sort of spirit that would prompt us to warn this or any other community against a miscreant caught in the aot of attempting to spread the germ of diphtheria or scarlet fever among the school ohildren. There is not even a trace of truth in the paragraph, and "Col." Williams and "Col." Hughes both knew it when they gave it publicity. It wae oonoeived in in and born in iniquity. The motivee back of it are among the lowest and meanest that ever inflnenoe human ae tion. It gratified the pitiful personal malice of this precious pair of colonels, nd at the same time presumably pan dered to the pleasure of their noble master, who doubtless will reward them by judioious promotion from ordinary liok-spittles to decorated and bedizened boot-laps. It will be perceived that the paragraph quoted makes no direot charge. Accord ing to the usual custom of cowardly liars, it simply makes damaging insinuations, and, doubtless having in mind the proverb that "a lie will travel a leagae while truth is putting on its boots," its unscrupulous author hoped to mislead and prejudice many people before his falsehoods would be overtaken and re futed. But, measurably at last, he indulged a delusion. About the time "Col." Wil liams, a bright and shining luminary of Mr. Catron's bar association, was pro pounding his brazen questions and in sinuating that "Tom Smith and Jndge Langhlin" had drawn the entire special territorial court fuud "but $4.75," the New Mexican procured from the terri torial auditor and promptly published figures showing the exact condition of that fund. That article was given the benefit of this paper's wide circula tion on November 1 and it has since been copied by numerous other terri torial papers. Thus "Col." Williams was caught and convicted with greater celer ity than he anticipated. Here are the figures we then printed: The total amount of money so far placed to the credit of the special . terri torial court fund arising from Albuquer que National bank dividends is $15, 441.72, against which warrants have been drawn and paid to the amount of $14, 108.49, leaving a cash balance on hand of $1,848.23. Under the law each of the judicial distriots of the territory is en titled to draw $6,175 against this fund, no provision being made for distributing the actual cash as paid in pro rata among the different districts, and it has hence happened that the money has been drawn out on the principle of first come first served as follows: First judicial district, ' $7,067.26; 2nd district, $2,100.48; 3d district,$2,000; 5th district, $3,940.75. It will be perceived that the 4th or Chief Justice Smith's dis trict has not drawn a cent of the money, while, owing to extraordinarily long and costly terms of oourt, Judge Laughlin's district lacks $107.74 of having drawn its entire shnre of the fund. Unquestionably future dividends will so increase the fund that all the other distriots will get their full share, and the fact that some of the distriots may have to wait a few months for the actual cash is the only possible cause of complaint in the premises. Sinoe the above statement was printed, Jndge Hamilton has drawn from the fund mentioned $498.38 for court expenses in Eddy county and Judge Collier has drawn $505.03 for oourt expenses in Bernalillo connty. Henoe when the auditor closed his books last evening the exact condi tion of the special territorial oonrt fund was as follows: Total cash paid into fund $15,451 72 Cash drawn therefrom 15,111 90 Cash balance on hand $ 339 82 The amount drawn is ohnrged up against the several districts as follows: Judge Lauerlilin's district $ 6,067 26 Judge Collier's district 2,605 51 Judge Huntz' district 2,C30 00 .Indue Hamilton's district 4,439 18 Judge Smith's district nothing Total $15,111 90 So it appears from the reoords of the auditor's office that, at the time the flabby, truth-hating blatherskite of the Chieftain and the cringing ooward of the Citizen (who solemnly swore that he did not know who wrote a three column editorial for his own paper) were accusing "Tom Smith and Judge Langhlin" of having re duced the territorial oonrt fund to $4.75 and wanting to know what "those fel lows" were doing with the publio money, there was an actual cash balance of $1,343.49 in that fund; that $1,003.41 have since then been drawn from the fund for use in the 2d and 6th judioial districts, leaving a balance of $389.82 still on hand; that not a dollar had then been drawn from the fund for use in Chief Justice Smith's district nor has a dollar since been drawn from the fund for that pur pose. If these facts do not brand "Col." Williams and "Col." Hughes as deliberate and malignant liars it is beoause there is no more space left on their bodies for the placing of such brands. For the information of respectable people, we will add that the territorial oonrt fund has been drawn by the clerks of the several judicial districts in com pliance with the provisions of chapter XXII, of the aots of the 31st legislative assembly, and six red-handed murderers under sentence of death in this county alone are among the wholesome and righteous results accomplished by its ex penditure. If it is true that the statute was rather loosely drawn, and should have made definite provision for the pro rata distribution of the money among the dis triots, as it was paid into the treasury, the legislature, not the judiciary, should be blamed. As a matter of faot, however, no serious injustice haa been done, even to the people of Chief Justice Smith's district, for the reason that additional dividends will undoubtedly soon replen ish the fund and all the districts will get the full amount of the balances coming to them. unfortunate Cod-liver oil suggests consumption, which is al most unfortunate. Its best use is before you fear 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.

NEW-RflEXie' I FFEES uneqnaled advantages to the farmer, frait grower, live etook raiser, dairyman, bee keener, and to the home-Beeker irenerallv. The soil of the Peoos Valley is of high average fertility, and under irrigation produoes bonntiful crops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi tropioal zone. In suoh fruit as the peach, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot, nectarine, cherry, quinoe, etc, the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence with California; while competent authority pronounoes its upper portions in particular the finest apple oountry in the world. Enormous yields of suoh forage orops as alfalfa, sorghum aud Egyptian eorn make the feeding of oattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable ooonpation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is becoming an important industry in the Pecos Valley, a home market having been afforded for all that can be raised, at a prioe yielding a handsome profit. The 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 sale at low prioes and on easy terms. The water supply of the Peoos Valley has no equaLin all the arid region for oonstanoy and reliability; and this with the superb climate, productive soil and the faoilities afforded by the railway which extends through the Valley's en tire length, will cause these lands to enjoy a oonstant, and at times rapid, increase in value. The recent oompletion of the Peoos Valley Bailwav to Boswell will oanse the more rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, inoluding the rich Feliz seotion. The oompany has recently purchased many of the older improved farms about Roswell, and has now for Bale 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. In the vicinity of Boswell several pieoes of land have been divided into five and ten acres tracts, suitable for orohards and truok farms in connection with suburban homes. Certain of these traots are being planted to orohards, and will be cultivated and oared for by the oompany 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 elassts of traots are sold.
