NEW MEXICO. New Movement in the Interest of Statehood. Chicago, April 9. —Intelligence of a new movement in the interest of Statehood is brought by H. M. Glasgow, editor of the Sierra County Advocate, who is in the city. He says New Mexico would have been made a State this winter, were it not for the influence of the Mexicans. The old don element of the Mexican race is as active in its supremacy in New Mexico as it ever was in old Mexico. No legislation is effected in that Territory that is not agreeable to the high-class Mexican. They dominate the country like fendal lords Recognizing this as a fact, it can never be otherwise, says Glasgow. We want to separate ourselves from them. When asked bow this conld be accomplished, he said the Mexican and Indian population was fonnd almost altogether in the north ern portion of the Territory, while the English-speaking people all live in the southwestern portion. Two weeks ago the representatives from the five counties most largely American met at Las Crnces and appointed a com mittee to canvass the district and influ ence the people in favor of a division. To these counties they propose to add Graham and Cochiz counties, of Eastern Arizona. These seven counties has a population of 95,000, almost exclusively of what may be denominated American. The committee said Glasgow has reported the people almost unanimously in favor of division. By this means the Americans leave the other element a fair sized territory that they can make a State of when ready for it. But will Arizona consent to losing a part of her territory? was asked. The people in the two counties named are quite willing, and the western portion of the Territory will be left to add to Lower California when it shall become desirable to make a State of that country. We feel reasonably confident of success if we can ever get the question before Con gress in the right shape. SUGAR INDUSTRY. Report of the Agricultural Department in Regard to Sorghum. Washington, April 9. —The chemist of the Agricultural Department has com pleted his record of experiments in the manufacture of sugar from sorghum, con ducted last year at Rio Grande, New Jer sey; Kenner, t Louisiana, and Conway Springs, Douglas and Sterling, Kansas. The work at Sterling differed from that at the other places. It was an examination of all obtainable varieties of the snrghnm plant, begun by; the Sterling Sugar Com pany and completed by the Department. The work at Rio Grande, N. J., was car ried on by H. A. Hughes, whose purpose was to determine whether sorghum sngar conld be successfully manufactured on a small scale. Professor Wiley says he does not see any favorable result coming from two years' trial of the system of dif fusion (Hughes' system) to test its fitness for woiking on a large scale. It was not a success, owing to the failure of the battery to work properly. The agricul tural results were, however, of the most encouraging nature, showing that in that locality a crop of sorghum cane can be grown which, with proper treatment, may be expected to yield 80 or 90 pounds of sngar from a ton of pare cane. Prof. Wiley devotes considerable space to the presentation of points to be considered in building a factory. Southern and West ern Kansas possess the best soil and climate for Borghom raising. So far as is now known, Indian Territory is destined to be the centre of the indus try. The expectation of establishing a successful sorghum industry in the great maize fields of the country must now be definitely abandoned. In detail the bulletin is very complete. It contains reports of the assistant« in charge of the experiment at several sta tions, with daily records of the results in tabulated form, of the analysis of sngar beets grown in Kansas from seed furnished by Clans Spreckles, and the effect of the diffusion process upon the extraction of sngar from Bngar cane. The latest report on this subject showed that an average of 194 pounds of sugar is made from a ton of cane. ____ New Railroad Projected.

Harrisburg, Pa, April 9.—In a speech in the House of Repreeentativee last night Andrew Carnegie savagely attacked the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, declaring it was injuring the bnsiness and deprecia ting the vaine of property in large sections of Pennsylvania in order to hold its traffic monopoly. He gave the history of how it killed the South Pennsylvania railway scheme. The road was to have been built. Vanderbilt subscribed five millions, Carne gie two and a half millions, but the Penn sylvania company drove him to recede from his project by threatening to injare his other railroad properties. This was when he was broken in health.

J. The firm was regarded as the leading one in the manufacture of fancy shirts in the United States. At the office of the firm no person conld be fonnd to give the slightest information of the cause of the failure. The general under standing was, however, that the firm's en deavors to control the trade had increase d the expenses, while the profits diminished and low prices prevailed. The assignee, Miller, learned from Downs that the lia bilities were between $400,000 and $500,000 and that the assets, jndicionsly handled, would exceed all liabilities. N. P. Railroad Deal.

The scheme broached by onr local con temporary, the Journal, to start an immi gration "boom ' to people Montana in a hurry is regarded with little favor by the pres s of th e Territory. Montana has so far had a healthful growth, and the Herald and other papers that understand onr ca pacity for absorbsion of settlers and the employment of labor, are desirous that these and other classes of citizens, inclnd - ing capitalists with means to invest in mining, manufactuiirg, and other indus tries, shall come and plant their homes with ns as fast as our inducements will war rant and no faster. On this subject the New Northicest talks to the point and well expresses the sentiment of the established press of the Territory: The Helena Journal has recently urged participation of Montana newspapers in an active effort to induce immigration to Mon tana. This is well if the conditions are such that the immigrants, as well as Mon tana, will be benefitted thereby. But it is a question if inducing a great tide of im migration and working up a boom on Mon tana is for the best. We have found that, in the mineral regions, men of limited means cannot develop quartz claims, except in rarely exceptional instances. When capital is interested to develop mines, miners come in rapidly to do tbe work, and all classes of mechanics and laborers follow, while farm ing and stock raising is stimulated rela tively. So there has never been difficulty in securing all those who can find employ ment in the mineral regions or securing ample agricultural product for them. Until recently, at least, it has not been possible to raise any considerable crops, where there were convenient markets, without irriga tion. With the water rights as nearly ex hausted as they are on the smaller streams, it is and has been of late years somewhat difficult lor immigrants to locate lands in a locality where they can obtain safficient water for irrigation without greater expenditure ot time and money than the vast preponderance of immigrants can bestow, as in failure to raise a crop for a season or two many would be iu distress and want. In view of these conditions, since the placer mines passed their great prodnetiveness, it has not be< n tbe policy of Montana, nor the newspapers thereof, to stimulate or induce au immigration to Montana beyond wbat can be readily ab sorbed into its industries and avoca tions, and find adequately remun erated and steady employment. While desiring to induce all such, and giving all immigration that was good and healthy as hearty welcome as was ever accorded strangers in a strange land, illusive repre sentations have not been made, nor an in flux of people desired who would not better their condition by coming here. It is held to be a better policy that the influx shall be readily absorbed and find itself well requited than to induce it in booming proportions, beyond tbe probability of speedy and well requited employment. The Sun, of Sun River, adds some sen sible words, as follows : Tbe Sun will help with its little mite any legitimate effort to show up Montana, but it will certainly not join the army of "boomers" now endeavoring to delude a lot of people into coming to this country with the vain hope of making a living on her naked prairies. Montana has resources, bnt neither bananas nor oranges grow wild, nor can the gold be had by pulling up grass and shaking tbe yellow metal fioin among its roots. Santa Fe Earnings.
