(Jkxti.emes: I return without my approval Senate Bill No, 7, being un Act to repeal an Act rela ling to portillón ot IltuI Estate and for otLer purposes approved January 11, 1876. Iu my Ju Ijjeinent, it is vury necessary to have law upon thia subjoct as tho Territory becomrg more thickly scltlnd, lands will become more valuable and will be held in Hmaller quantities. To make sales and to be able to give you titles and certain and e.)8y possession, it will bp necessary to have district boundaries. There is always great liability to confusion in unfixed ownership In the earliest dsys, when but few familes were settled upon tf-e e groundsjthere was comparatively little difficulty, but now, with increased 'population and the incoming of strangers there is incre ued confusion, and it is for the public go jJ that these large grounds lie divided and the rilit and ownership of individuals determined. This law is' copied from a law of a sister state ntid I hava reason to believe that it is a'jvery good law. but 1 shall be willing to favor any amendment by which it can heimprov cd, but am not willing to haya it entirely repealed I cannot tborefore approve the bill. S. B. AXTELL. Governor of N. Mexico. We are indebted to Hon. W. G. Putch for a copy of a bill introduced into the legislature entitled "An act to provide foi the incorporation of Railroad Companies and the management of the affairs thereof and other matters relating thereto." It is a general incorporation act allowing five or more persons to nssociate themselves to goiher for the purpose of constructing and operating railroads in this Territory. Its provisions are particular in all detailf which makes the bill extensive. It provides ss a mentis of encourngpment to organize com panies ond build railroars that the property of the company hhall be exempt from taxa tion for a period uf nix years, Such a pro vi.ior. we believe prof er for a limited time as éí.sinrigornent to improvements of sin.'. undoubted public utility as railroads It takes immense capital to build them throug li the extensive unsettlrd ngioas of the west mid for a number of years the incorporators can not h'ipri to receive a return for iheir investment. They bring much wealth into the Territory, largely increase the value o! property and stimulate every branch of industry and for these reasons should bo favored until they can get the road in run mug order mid traffic established. The bill i,-; o gi od one ar.d tfcould be passed. . Don Aoy'n will power does not appear to work well in the sleepy atmosphere oPthe ancient capital.

First there is Governor S. ri. Axtell. Governor Axtell.waa appointed to the pnsitition he now occupies in 1875 and has thus been here over two years. He is a man some whkt advuiiccd in years, lío weurs n clean shaved face which shows many murks of care. His appearance is that of a man of thought and determination. And he dots not deceive his app;.arauce. New Mexi co has never had a Governor who has given the best interests of the Territory half the attention they have received from Cover nor Axell. Being a progressive man and a man loyal t3 his country, it is most trying to him to Bee the Legislature trampling down the good laws which have been made enacting others that should nof be permitt ed for tho good of the people, ar.d violating the statutory laws of the United States, Governor Axtell was oncea represen'ativc in Congress from California, and was Gov. ernnr of Utah before becoming Governor of New Mexico, Hi has thm had long ex perience, and his couniel is mich as should bo hee l id by tha law m ikers of this Terri tnry. Governor Axtell his an able assis tnnt iathe Territorial Secretary. Hon W. G. Ritch, Mrt Bitch has been in New Mexico over five years, and has during this tima become tho best informed man upon the resources of the Territory to be found within its borders. Ho is a close student and a very hard worker; a man who take naturally to literary work, He is also a man of strong courage and good judgment. Since coming to the Territory Mr. Hitch has acted as Governor about a year, and he occupied the gubernatorial chair with the dignity that is natural to him, Mr. Ritch has his family, consisting of a wife, two daughters and a son, with him in New Mex ico. who are among tho brightest tdorn menta of Santa Fe society. These two gen tleman aie doing a noble work to advance the civilization of their adopted Territory and should be given the hearty support of the pogressive people of whatever nationa1 lity or creed, Uou Trinidad Alurid, Terri torial Auditor, 8 a Mexican, mid is a man who believts that man was inace to move onward and upward. He welcomes all means of improvment and may always be found doing what he con for the advance ment oi the '.test interests of his town u:J Territory. He is an ofiicial who can be trusted for honesty.

Tho Legislature is composed of inex periuheed men, who would doubtless do better than they are doing if de-iining politicians, would leave them lo do as they might chiiose. 1 havo found Hon. Sentago ü.ica, President of the Council, and Air. lV.i on, Speaker of the House, both gentle men. personally, Mr. Baca has served in one Legislature previous to this, and is not by uny means entirely ignorant of the requirements of law making.

Mr, Buller s.iid it was reported that the Presidí nt. will veto ill silver bill. 1 do not know wh it a-ithority there is for such a i-tiitemcnt, but it is pale to assiiinn from his f urrouridings thai he will veto Fitch a bill as will bj p'issod by Congress. I say tl nl appears from tho information in my posrs sirm thai we m iy expect him to ve'o any bill expressing the views of the in j irity ot the members ofbothhous.s Whr.t thjn is to he ilinsl A twithirlí v ite cannot always he relied upon ewi in the midst of popular demand and a great national ne cessity. What, then, remains to be dni-?f the President of the United S'atPS should deem it bU duty in exercising the veto power to prevent the ente' merit of a law undoubu ly demanded by a largo mejori'y of the people of thecour.try, it would be the duty of the reprennniatives of the people to resort to the power reposed in them, and how can this he most e'enrly anl foicibly done?
