ATTACKS." Mr. If. O. Ilursiim, Mr. Solomon Luna, Mr. Francisco Hubhell and cithers through the columns of the local evening pnper In which all are financially Interexted, are cotnpliiln lnit bitterly that they are the object of "personal attacks." We teg leave to state that nothing has been snld about these gentlemen or their randiiWra in lliia paper, save a relates to their public character. The men are not before the people as private citizens; they come before tha 100,000 pe.jpli) of the hew stnte nd aak that they be given the high est positions of trust and honor ami Influence, taking control of the des tinies of New Mexico, Not a single charge has been muds against these men, save as it affects their fitness or unfitness for position of trust and responsibility. Not an allegation has been made but whose correctness or error, vitally affects thu administration of the government of New Mexico. In the rase of Mr. llur um, every charge that has been made hna affected In some way the admin istration of state Institutions; the ad ministration of the stale lauds; the purity of the. ballot; the meting out of Justice to law breakers; the pana atta of laws In the Interest of the peo ple; the recognition of equal rights as between the small homesteader Bhd the land and sheep baron; and In short, government by the people and for the people os against government for political bosses and In thu interest of corporate wealth and special In terests. Mr, Itiirsum's private character has not been attacked. Worn he content to remain a private citizen, he would be allowed to go his way In peace. On the onntrnry, bo demands that the people give him the highest offlro in their gift. lie demands that they do this with out regard to the uuestlon of his fit ness or unfitness. He declares that the exposure of his record Is 'u per sonal attack." J)ld Mr. Ilursiim think for a moment when he deliberately Inflicted his nomination on tho party that the Intelligent people of New Mexico were going to Ignore his own record and confine themselves to tho dlsrusslon of platform platitudes mid glittering generalities? Mr. liursuni's record Is not clear; he knew that It was not clear when ho forced, through the power of hi mnclilno, the conven tion to nominate lilm. Ho knew that Ills nomination, when there were other men In tho party ranks of un bleinlshed record and ability, would disrupt the party and make the cam paign a defensive one from Btait to finish. A iiiun who declares that he !h pre eminently fit among sixty thousand voters to bo made head of a great state government, must produce the proof. Huch a man may expect the ruthless searchlight of publicity to be thrown Into every corner of his record. If It will not bear Inspection, let him take his rejection like a man and not wall that he is the victim of "personal abuse." Mr. Ihirsuin has failed to show here, In any public rapacity, ho has made a showing which entitles blm to the support of the people for their highest honor. Instead, ho points, with tears In his voice to bis "st nig gling youth" and ' ideal homo llle." It Is Mr. Ilursiim who H bringing up the matter of private ehn racter, not the people, 1 hey are Judging him by his public career. The publication of the facts of that career, which ull tho people are entitled to know, baa been met by Mr. lnusiini with the charge that ho Is the victim of "vltn- peratloii." The majority of the counts against him ho has left uimswored; In other cases bis defense tins I, ecu evasive, equivocal; he has dodged the charges; bis rambling explanations linv wandered away from the, point at Issue; the burden of proof Is on him and be bus failed to rise to the occasion, Mr. Hursuni's public career in New Mexico condemns blm as unfit to be governor of' the new state. In the case of Mr. Luna, who la ments he ulso Is the victim of "per onalltics" the case la the same. Tor many years Mr. Luna has been the hesd and front of tho New Mexico republican machine. Vnder his control it has brought republicanism into dlsgraca, In New Mexico, I'nd. r his managemeut tha party l as betrayed the people. Vnder his Influence, the republican territorial orgunUatlon ha Income iiynonyniout with vicious law. Kith etilcn elections, with making ; mate graft out t.f a public office. For many yearn Sir. Luna ha twn th ahuolute government of Valencia county, one of the richest in the state. Vnder his domination, there tin t-en no proKr-: there hai been m popular government; there have hre ii no public improverninU; there nv htrt r' fconeft fleet ion; the county funds which ehoulj be tx which ehoulJ he pended on rotirt houses and Jails and si hoolst and roads, have bevn reposing in a bank In whhh Mr. I. una is Inter ested. In short, unibr Mr. Luna's ab (Into control, Valencia rounty has had the worst tiiisK.ivernnicnt In New Mcilco. aalng only that in Itcrnallllo I county under the ( z.irim of Krancls ico Ilubbell.

II. i... nn. .,H ,( now. r and I his Influrnce In the intercut of the people, but In the Interest of the ma chine with which he Is Identified. Mr. I. una has not proved faithful to his trust. When he asks that the people of New Mexico alluw hlrn to continue to dominate the government of the state, he must take his medicine with a good grace If his record does not J.iMlfy his demands. Francisco Ilubbell weeps in his per annul newspaper organ that he has been "abused and misrepresented" and asks the people of Itcrnallllo county to turn the government of their county over to him and his personal candidates. There has been no more amazing exhibition In New Mexico thau the spectacle of this man, whose absolute rule practically bankrupted Itcrnallllo county, coming before the people year after year and demand Ing that they let lilm do it again. The effrontery of It Is unpttjalUilltJ, Jlr, Ilubbell has had his chance; he has betrayed a public trust, ha hah used his power In tho Interest of himself, of his fellow politicians and of his fellow political bankers; he hus prov en that ho Is unfit to be trusted with any position of public responsibility or political Influence. Let Mr. Hub bell take his medicine like a man, No attack has ever been made on Mr. Ilubbell savo lis directly and vitally affected the welfare of every taxpayer in Ilerniillllo county. The wall of "libel" and "vitupera tion," Is puerile and pusillanimous. The records of these men are open far Inspection despite their desperate ef forts and tho effort of their henchmen to hldo them, Their records brand them as unfit to lead tho republican party In New Mexico; unfit to admin ister the affairs of tho people; not to bu trusted with public responsibility and us the representatives, not of the people, but of a political oligarchy which has been tho means of delay ing statehood for New Mexico ten years and of disgracing New Mexico before the union. They have been weighed In the, balance find found wanting; they have had absolute con trol of the territory and have not iniidn good; now let them step down and out. IT 1H Tl M K Knit A CHANGE, "III IU1VU m:v MLXICO." "The Morning Journal Is hurting Albuiuerqiio niul New Mexico," cry Mr. Ilursiim and his friends. If exposure of tho records ot Mr. Ilursiim and his friends Is hurting New Mexico, It will be tho most beneficial hurt the territory ever received. The people, will not lie long In deckling who Is responsible for tho damagd to the reputation of New Mexico; the men who have misgoverned her or the men who uru exposing that ml governmelit. The surgeon who removes tho can cer Is hurting thu pal lent; the sur geon's knife, however, ia preferable to death by the cancer. A lancer of mleruTo nnd corrup tion has been eating ut the heart of New Mexico for a good many years; it Is tlmo to cut It out. Mr. Itiirsum should have worried about "hurting New Mexico" when lie mismanaged the penitentiary nnd forced the pass- ago of such measures as the Hawkins bill over the veto of the governor. This one single vicious law, annulled by congress, while the nation hoot ed, has done more damage to tho fair name of this commonwealth than can be estimated. Probably Mr. llursum's idea would be to leave thut Infamous law on the statuto books, rather than "Injure the territory" by having t annulled by congress. Mr. ltursum and his crowd have sowed the wind; now let them reap the whirlwind. Tin: cask or hkknaliu.o. The election of V. C, McDonald, ail honorable citizen nnd successful busi ness man to tho office of governor Is vitally important to tho state of New Mexico. The repudiation of Francisco Ilub bell is the matter that comes direct ly and Immediately homo to every cit izen of the city of Albuquerque nnd the county. It Is a matter which strikes ut the poikcthnok of every taxpayer. For several years Itcrnallllo county tins en )oe,) a progressive bueliiess govern ment. She has paid off ruinous bills left from Mr, HubbeU's regime; she has re-established her credit, has vindicated her citizenship, has com menced an era of public Improvement and orficlal honesty, has made a strong start In living down the dis grace of marly a decade of Ilubbell misrule. She has a ret of honest men as commissioners. They have admin istered the county affairs for tho peo ple. 1'hey have paid off Frank Hub bell's bills. They have wiped out the ass.ssmeiit elm h and the looting of school and the corruption of courts, .Thcy have, built road and bridge and hocds and have put money by in tha bank. Tb. y have managed the busi ness of the county as a business man would his private business; they have earned re-election and should hava a vote of appreciation from the peo ple. The Morning Journal la confi dent they will get it. It is beyond the bounds of possibility that after their disastrous experience with Francisco Ilubbell and his government, any In telligent men should deliberately vote to re-tore him to power. If you perhaps think that there is a man on Mr. HubbeU's ticket who will be his own boss, forget it. Tast experience has Infallibly demonstrat ed that a Ilubbell candidate, however Independent he may appear or how ever sure of himself, must be bent and will be bent to the will of the dictator. To elect Frank Ilubbell' ticket means to put the money back into the power of Frank Ilubbell. The cltisens know what that means. The taxpayer, who sees the Ilubbell label, haa learned to avoid It, pass not by it, turn from It and puss away. This corrupt political boss should get a rebuke from the voters this year beside which his former series of re pudiations w ill look like votes of con fidence. He will get it. "The Lands of I'tah." Is the title of a Valuable booklet Just issued by the passenger department of the Denver & Klo Grande railroad. It contains a description of V'tnh'a agricultural de velopment and gives special mention of the principal private and govern ment reclamation projects now under way and completed; is handsomely il lustrated with orchard and dairy scenes and an up-to-date map of the tate of Vtah, giving counties, adds materially to the value of the publi cation. Mr. Bursum's Sheep Versus the Settler. Editor Morning Journal:. Having heard Mr. llursum's grand speech In which he maintained that corn could be rained In tho Ulo (1 rande valley, In large quantities on tho "thousands of ucres of land" In tho valley, 1 wish to stutn a few facts and let the people decide for them selves how badly Mr. Ilursiim and somo of his Hocorro county friends want that part of tho Klo Grnndo val ley settled up by tho American actuul settler or big corn grower. Thrye years ago last August I was seeking a homo In tho ltlo t) ramie valley, i went as far south us the Elephant liutto dam, then came up tho river to San Antonio In Hocorro county. 1 was told there was no vacant land there. Finally I wub told that a man had filed on some land on the east side of the river. I went to see him nnd be confirmed the report. He said some Mexicans did live on tho land, but Mr. Ilursiim had bought them out. so ho would have u way to bring his sheep to tho river for water, He said however, that It was government land and that ho had filed on some of it. At that time there were some natives working whore he told me had filed. few days later was them and there worn somo natives there put ting up Homo fences. Whether they were tho same ones who had been there before or whether Mr. llnrsuni had sent them there to work 1 am un whether or not tho actual settler got able to say. Neither do I know tho land, but 1 would slake my hut quick Unit the actual settler nev er got it. I until t got the land I filed on there. linn Mr. Mclntyro claimed he hail a deed to n tract of land from Mr. Hil ton giving the boundary lines as the Mosque del Apacho grant on tho Bouth, the ltlo (jramlo on tho east, the Mon- toyu land on the north and the foot hills on tho west. These lands sur rounded tho land I had filed on, ulao the land which a Mr. Iteagan had fll- I on. I had been notified bv the hind office nt Las Cruccs that nil this and more was vacant land and sub ject to entry. Mince I received that information from Ijis Cruccs, a small miming claim has boon put on the land 1 filed on, and I would not be surprised to loam that a small hold ing flu I in had been nut on tho land which was filed on where Mr. Hitrsum waineii to water his sheep. That tip pears to bo a safe plan for everv man that has a stand In. It Is my opinion that when Hia American "big corn grower" comes to settle up that part of the klo Grande valley thev hud better colon about five hundred strong and bring their guns with them If Mr. Hursum is go- iiik in no governor. Ibis Is the wav Mr. Ilursiim limits after the rights of the senior and the small homesteaders. Yours truly, T. M. OW1SNS.

THE CASE OF die McKlnloy coun ty coal camps is another shining dem onstration of the earnest dvsiro of the gang to have honest 'elections. MR, GEORGE A.

THE SIMPLEST way would be. to Just declare a recess at the penitenti ary and take all the convicts on an automobile excursion to the polling booths of Socorro and Valencia coun ties. THEY ARE TELLING a funny one now on George Armijo, Mr. Hur sum'H candidate for corporation com missioner, and a bounty of $2,000 charged against Santa Fe county for tho pelts of a bunch of coyotes bought up by a citizen. The bounty on a coyote Is about $2; on a wolf $!!. With that remarkable carelessness which has characterized several of his official actions, it is said, the re doubtable George took them for wolves although two wolves Is a liberal estimate for the whole coun ty. The county, salth deponent, foot ed the bill. How much of the $2,000 the coyote-buyer got, is not stated. Incidentally the law provides only for the payment of bounty on animals killed by tho applicant. THE EVENING paper's compto meter places the present cost of feeding- county prisoners nt $fi,000. This represents a net saving of some $4, 000 to $8,000 or about 40 or 50 per cent over the $10,000 to $12,000 ex pended by Mr. HubbeU's last sheriff for satiating the appetites of the nrlsoncrs. This would not appear to he a particularly strong argument for electing another Iluhnell sheriff.
