It is sent to every Poet Office in the Territory and has a large fc.id growing circulation among the intelli gent and progressive people of the south west. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12. The Tnrks are worse than the Apaches. It looks as though the day of reckoning was at hand with civilized governments other than Great Britain p.t the helm. Tue Albuquerque Citizen continues to misrepresent Messrs. Wilkerson and Fin ical, and 1ms not yet apologized for its ngly and unprovoked assault on Hon. H. 13. Fergusson. It is a good deal as the Silver City En terprise suggests too much attention is being given to personal journalism in New Moxico. The press has a higher and broader duty calliug upon it at this time. The Democratic presidential nomina tion may catch Adlai Stevenson if he doesn't watch out, says the Washington Post. Correct. The Republicans have tilings all set for Reed, and Stevenson's nomination by Democracy would make the prettiest sort of a national contest. The stockmen of New Mexioo should soo to it that their interests are duly looked after at the trans-Mississippi con gress to meet on November 25. A proper resolution put through that assemblage would do muoh toward helping the gov ernment's representatives in their efforts to suppress the jobbery of the Chicago beef combine. DouBTiiEss Brice will now cease makiDg even the gauzy profession of being a reeidont of Ohio and publicly take tip hit permanent abode, in close . proximity to Wall street. It Is siWa safe bet that he wiil support the Republican gold bug candidate for president next term. There is no foolishness about the goldites. They can bo depended upon to stand to gether regardlcas of past political differ ences. The silver men may as well make up their minds to do the same thing or pull down their blinds and shut up shop. A house divided against itself can not stand. Sevebal of the cattle-fish journalists down along the Rio Grande appear to have discovered at last the name of "the responsible editor of the New Mexican," nnd they are pouring hot shot after him in a style to indicate that everything the New Mexican has arraigned them for, and convicted them of, was based on fact. Whonever the New Mexican goes after a fellow for good and sufficient cause it raises the cuticle and penetrates the hide, even n it is or the rhinoceros-like vari ety worn by the editors of the Albuquer que Citizen, the Socorro Advertiser, the Las Cruces Independent Anti-Djmocrat or that other vehicle of wind and hog wash, tho Socorro Chieftain. COMPULSORY EDUCATION. Oar facetious friend down on the White Oaks Eagle has been having a great deal of quiet fun of late working his satiricnl rabbit's foot on New Mexico's statutes. lie finds a constant source of amnsement in this sort of thing, and in tho numerous and palpable defects of onr legislative enactments our friend pre tends to find substantial ground upon which to stand and oppose statehood for New Mexico. JNow we are not going to take issue with the esteemed Eagle on this question of New Mexico's fitness for statehood, because it has already thrown valuable light on a much discussed question, and beoanse we think any controversy there on (it this time, however good-natured it might be, would serve as "love's labor lost." Nor do we desire to be understood as in any manner volunteering as an apologist for the acts of New Mexico's legislative assemblies. Some of the laws that to-day adorn our statute books' are shocking the change of venue aot, for instance, and others that might be named others are weak in construction and malignant in design, while others still, though good and wholesome acts, are so loosely drawn as to make them a source of never-ending annoyanoe to beuch, bar and laity; and we thaqk the Eagle for calling publio attention to them now in hopes that New Mexioo may thereby derive profit in future. Bat there is always a "but," judge; the New Mexican would warn the Eagle against exoesses. There is a constant danger of over-doing a good thing. When allowed fall bent of "our own sweet will," uninterrupted for long stretches of time, it is but natural that reckless exoesses ensue, and some times these excesses are dangerous to one's cause, as seems to be the case with the Eagle. Id the interest of popular education the New Mexican last week called atten tion to the fact that New Mexico hits on its statute books a strong and vigorous compulsory school law. This observa tion was put forth as a gentle hint to parents and guardians that New Mexico is abreast of the times ahead of many states in the Union and proposes to see to it that her children are educated. It appeared to us to be a serions matter, one most timely, and deserving of con siderate attention by men who have lived long enough in this territory to realize the necessity and the importance of crowding the school rooms with the youth of the territory. In its effort to foster and encourage a popular move ment toward the school house the New Mexican relied upon, and had reason to expeot, that it would have the moral support, at least, of such territorial news papers as the White Oaks Eagle. There was no politics in its suggestion, no factional disturbances hinted at! Im agine our surprise and chagrin, therefore, when we find the aforesaid esteemed Eagle pounoing upou both the New Mexican and the compulsory school law with all the satire at its command and holding both np to ridicule before its large and growing constituency in Lin coln county the very home of the Hon. James F. Hinklei This is quite too much; but thore it is again, judge, that irrepressible "but," the Eagle seems to have reckoned with out its host, as it were. Here is the sec tion of the law which the Eagle pretends to find so much hnmor in: "Section 42. That the school direptois of the varions districts in this territory are hereby empowered and required to compel parents, guardians or other per Bon having the control, care or direction of children, vhen such children do not attend some private school, to send Buch children nnder their control to the public school for at least three months in each year, except when such children shall be under age or above 16 years of age, or of such physical disability as to unfit thorn for the labor required, which disability shall be certified to by some regular prac ticing physician." This is the precise wording of the law as taken from the compiled laws of the public schools of New Mexioo, and al though we are not a member of Col. Cat ron's bar association we have no hesitan cy in passing judgment on the language of the aot to the extent of saying that we believe it pretty good for New Mexico: It ought to be enforced both in spirit and letter. Will the Eagle help? PRESS COMMENT. Statehood for Sew Mexico. The jealousy that has existed between the dominant parties of the territory has kept New Mexico from assuming its proper place in the galaxy of Btates. Whenever one party has been in power, the other stands in the way as obstruc tionists so as to defeat or weaken any measure of efforts whioh may tend to bring about the desired result. The iealoHBy does not only extend within the party lines in our territory. but by oar own incautious acts, it brought to the notice of the national parties in congress, and as is to be ex pected it is there made a matter of epeou lation as to the political oolor of the senators which would be allowed our state, and both parties through onr own information being in doubt, they let the matter rest for awhile and that while ex tends into years, tens of years and we may say half a century, for ever since our acquisition by the United States has been the eternal "to morrow," "mana na," which is ascribed to our Spanish American nationality. Meanwhile, waiting for "manaca" now and on, our people are unjustly denied their rights to become a sovereign state and manage their own affairs at borne. This question is of vital importance to all citizens of the territory, no matter of what nationality. The advance of New Mexico in every line of enterprise de mands our equality and recognition as a sovereign state of the union. We have the wealth, we have the resources and the ability with which to maintain and govern ourselves independently. The majority of onr Spanish-American citizens are fully alive to the necessity o snch a weloome and important step. Be sides the benefits of au industrial, com mercial and mineral character whioh may accrue, we will possess the additional privilege of having a say in our local matters of government. The question of politios Bhould not enter in the effort to obtain statehood for New Mexico it is a mistake after be ing admitted, and having adopted proper and just constitution, there plenty of time to draw the lines, well de fined, between the Democrat and Kepub licans and fight it oat to a fiinish for su premacy in the state government. The plan of maneuvering around for advan' tageous positions beforehand always re suits in failure. "Let us catch the bear and kill it, then afterward sell tbe skin." Senatorial togas in the minds of sev eral would-be leaders in our territory should be ridiculed, and they should be made to see the foroe and apply to themselves the story of the bear. Let the dreamers gird their loins, work for statehood, obtain oar admission and then they may chase about for senatorial togns. Oar ex-delegate to congress, Mr. Job- eph, devoted the greater part of his ser vice to working for our admission, and his efforts are still fresh in the minds of our people. He has now been encoeeded by Hon. T B. Catron, whose duty it is to take up the work left by Mr. Joseph, and as soon as possible obtain for as admission to the union of states. We have the population,- we have the wealth, we have the ability let congress heed onr demands through our delegate and grant as justice in this one respeot.

EM IE I FFERS unequaled advantages to the farmer, frait grower, live keener, and tn the hnme The soil of the Peoos Valley is of high average fertility, and under irrigation produces 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 such fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot.neotarine, cherry, quince, etc, the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence with California; while competent authority pronounces its upper portions in particular the finest apple oouutry in the world. Enormous yields of such forage crops as alfalfa, sorghum aud Egyptian oora make the feeding of cattle and sheep aud 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 handsome profit. The climate of the Peoos V allay no taperior ia the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lands with perpetual water-rights are for sale at low prioei and on easy terms. The water supply of the PeooB Valley has no equal in all the arid region for oonstanoy and reliability; and this with the superb olimnte, productive soil and the facilities afforded by the railway whioh extends through the Valley's en tire length, will cause these lands to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, increase in value. The recent completion of the Peoos Valley Railway to Roswell will cause the more rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, inolnding the rioh Feliz seotion. The company has recently purohased 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 crops. In the vioinity of Roswell several pieoes of land have been divided into five and ten acres traots, suitable for orohards and traok farms in connection with suburban homes. Certain of these traots are being planted to orohards, and will be oultivated and oared fo 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 classes of traots are sold.
