The Daily New Mexican
Honest work is needed at Washington
now. Honest work in behalf of the in
terests of all the people. Delegate Cat
ron is happily situated to do this sort of
work, if he will, for he has in the upper
house a powerful ally in the parson of
Senator Elkins. It is an opportunity for
benefiting New Mexioo that should be
made the most of. Will Delegate Catron
take advantage of the situation, or will
he, for some ulterior and Belfish purpose,
kill statehood by resorting to petty
trickery that would disgrace any shyster
lawyer? We shall see what we shall see!

Even his own party became dismasted
with Reed's man, Boutelle, yesterday and
voted him down with a whoop. Bontelle
is a good deal of an old granny. That's
clearly in evidence.
Reading "between the lines," ns the
Optic suggests, we have now no reason
able doubt but that the editor of 'that
always readable paper, has sharpened his
big blue pencil, and will use it in future
whenever the lawyer politicians send in
matter marked "editorial."
We understand that the date for Col.
Hughes' engagement with the Goddess of
Liberty has now been fixed, by special
request of Col. T. Adonis Finical, legal
adviser and all-around-runner out, on
Monday next, December 23, Col. Hughes
having earned one day off his original
sentence for "good behavior" while in the
The unkindest cut of all was the turn
down administered to Col. Mo. B. Tim
oney by the Chaves county Republicans.
We trust that Col. D. P. Carr's letter to
the Optic anent the heroio efforts of Col.
Morrison to organize a McKtnley bureau,
with Col. Mo. B. Timoney as aeoond fid
dler in Chaves county, had nothing to do
with the latter gentleman's being so
cruelly cut down in the zenith of his pros
perity. Or was it Delegate Catron who
gave the Chaves oounty boys a tip on
CzarRee? It appears to us that light
is in order on these questions.
Senator Mobqan throws some light on
the Behring sea question in the assertion
that the Paris tribunal did not attempt
to determine the question of the liability
of the United States for seizures before
the tribunal was created. If Senator
Morgan oan establish his premises the
controversy over the $126,000 award will
assume new shape. By the way, the
Raton Reporter should instrcot its Wash
ington correspondent not to be quite so
flip in pouncing on Senator Morgan.
He's a good enough statesman for any
Democrat to stand up for.
The passenger traffio department of the
A., T. & S. P." raitway has engaged in a
most commendable work for this terri
tory. It proposes to issue at an early day
a handsome publication entitled "Health
Resorts in New Mexico," copies of which
are to be sent broadcast throughout the
oountry and distributed also by the agents
of the company in foreign lands. This
is a feature of advertising that the A., T.
& S. F. has been giving increased atten
tion to for the past year, and now it is
proposed to issae a more pretentious
work that will attraot fresh patronage to
the road as well as materially aid in build
ing up New Mexioo. The New Mexioan
is sure that it is a move that will be ap
preciated by the people of this territory.
Heed's lo-othlng Policy.
Congress has been in session since a
week age Monday, and as yet no tariff
bill has been passed, silver has not been
made free, and neither Arizona nor New
Mexioo haB been admitted to statehood.
Congress seems to be wasting consider
able very valuable time. Ijordsburg
The Pecos Prospering.
Financial matters are getting better in
the Pecos valley and a good .time is ex
pected in the very near future. At the
reoent sale the Pecos Irrigation & Im
provement company passed into the
hands of wealthy and enterprising men,
men who will now go to work in earnest
to settle and develop the valley. A heavy
immigration from the north is pouring
into the valley, and each and every im
migrant is well pleased with the country
and report others coming. Indeed the
prospects are bright enough and it will
not be long till all the valley will be un
der cultivation. Eddy Current.
1'lie Apnche Murderer?.
The Indians are again killing and har
assing settlers in Arizona and New Mex
ico. The Washington authorities pretend
to discredit the reports, and claim that it
is a soheme to deter the government from
abolishing certain frontier posts. If the
army is to be an ornamental auxiliary to
the enjoyment of life in big cities, abol
ish the army altogether. If the govern
ment . will remove the troopB from the
reservations and allow the civil laws of
the territories to be enforced, against In
dians and whites without "discrimination,
the white citizens of these territories will
taks care of themselves. But as long
as the government provides a safe
refuge for its horde of Indian murderers,
the patient and suffering settlers demand
that the government maintain some sort
of restraint upon its murderous wards.

The Optie Explain.
People are apt to expect much more
from a territorial delegate than a careful
consideration of the circumstanoes will
warrant. When it is considered that the
representative of the territory has no
vote, and when it is remembered that he
can not speak on any sub jeot unless some
member has the courtesy to grant him a
portion of his time, it will be readily un
derstood what limited facilities a delegate
has for accomplishing anything for his
constituents. On the floor of congress
be is a perfect nonentity, without voioe
or vote, a sort of member by brevet, who
is given a seat inside the bar, but who is
deprived of the privileges whioh make
the possession of the seat a benefit to the
people he is supposed to represent. It is
ontaide the house that the delegate must
hope to obtain recognition or strive to
secure a hearing. A man of good address
pleasing social qualities and a fair share
of energy will always make himself felt.
And snoh a man is Delegate Thos. B. Cat
ron, of New Mexico, who will accomplish
more for ns at Washington in one year
than Antonio Joseph did in twelve years,

CATRON AND STATEHOOD.
It begins to dawn upon as that Dele
gate Catron may have a very selfish
motive back of bis statehood bill. The
New Mexican knows that it expresses
the sentiment of a large majority of the
Democrats of New Mexioo when it wishes
for him all the aaocess possible, so far as
scouring statehood is concerned, but our
delegate should not undertake to work
into the bill any of those propositions of
self Interest which usually oharaoterizs
the aoti of the Republican lawyer poli
ticians in this territory. Snoh an effort
would be decidedly unfair, and besides it
would kill Delegate Catron's statehood
bill and several other schemes "dead'ern

keeper, and to the home-seeker generally.
The soil of the Peoos Valley is of high average fertility, and nnder Irrigation produoes bountiful crops of
most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi
tropioal zone. In such fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot,neotarine, cherry, qninoe, etc,
the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence 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 and Egyptian 001a make the feeding of oattle
and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable occupation.
The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is 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
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 priees and on easy terms. The water supply o(
the l'ecos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for eonstanoy and reliability; and tuis with the superb
climate, productive soil and the facilities afforded by the railway which extends through the Valley's en
tire length, will cause these lands to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, increase in value.
The reoent completion of the Peoos Valley Railway to Roswell will cause the more rapid settlement
and development of the upper portions of the Valley, including the riob Feliz seotion. The oompany 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, orohards 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 truck farms in connection with suburban homes. Certain of
these tracts 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 whioh these several claBSts of traots are sold.
