Ndif toM it m fibou. the illtie of tbe
J-6f when the1 nspirififf politicians'
bnlieve tuey are culled, upon to serve
their city fur their city's good, a little
reasoning may not be out of place.
Many a young- or old man is acker)
to become a caudidato, , nay for ulJer
mho, and it may be he concalres the
Idea that be wants an nfllae and tbe
first thing he does is to ask (or the
opinion of his friends. Thut opinion
U too often given without thought ur
the consequences It is too ooruuion
thing for a "slick'? man to smile upon
the candidate, and wish him Uod
speed, in his presence, when behind
his- back he is planning hi defeat.
Tha result of his hypocrisy, Is that the
men are flattered and work themselves
np to the idea that every person
Is (or them, and therefore their money
is spent recklessly j their private bust
ness Is neglected, and they grow fa
over tbe thought that what they most
desire is within their grasp. This
deception is . praoticed through
out the campaign and, lo, when
the votes are counted, the hopeful can
didate realizes that he was the vlotim
of (also flattery, and then, (or tbe first
time, he sees tbe blue monster (allure
stalkitig where hope and happiness
dwelt, lie finds his credit gone, bis
money wasted and no sympathizers
Those who courted him before now
shun bim, and steal around the cor
ners when they see bim approach, (ear
log that he might demand an explan
ailon, at least, of their peculiar con
duct.
Abore all things, be frank and bon
est with the candidate. If yon cannot
support him, tell bim so, that he may
calculate wisely. If you know others
who will not support him, tell him so
that be may measure his distance as he
proceeds on his way. If be Is weak,
point out bis weakness and then, when
defeat comes, you will be referred to
as one who bad the oourage of your
conviction, and one who told him tbe
truth rather than to deceive bim. Be
honest with the candidata.
ELIZABETHTOWN MIXING CASE.
la the Colax county mining case of
James Lynch vs. Thos. Ritchie et ol , in

lows:
This cause coming on to be heard upon

be choose, accompany him.
Tbe representatives of Lynch and Stev
ens, co-operating, shall make an estimate
of the amount of development work that
has been done, and to what value or detii
ment this has been to the property.
AH, INDEED I
The OPTIO on the Brice bond incident is
rather non-committal and reserves tbe
right to cbaoge its mind. We have learn
ed to look for this in The Optio, but the
trouble is when it changes its mind It
always gets a worse ono.Albuquerqua
lemocrat.
Now weren't you heartily ashamed
of jourself, Mr. College Graduate,
after reading an editorial in t iis paper
subsequent to tbe one that lay on your
dosK when tbe above paiagrapu of un
just criticism was Fabered an editoria
that intimated that tbe Territorial
capital might be removed from Santa
Fe to AJbuquerqui P
At the republican county convention,
yesterday, in Santa Fe, eight delegates
lo tbe republican Territorial conven
tion were selected, their names having
appeared in The Optic of last evening
The . ci nrenuon also selected eight
alternttes, on motion of Governor
Prince, but these will not count, as toe
call for the republican Territorial coo
venlinn plainly state that alternatet
will not be rec gniz9d. Tbe conven
tion, by a unanimous vote, iostruoied
the delegates to support Judge A. L
Morrison . for one of tbe delegates t-
the national republican convention
from New.- Mexico. Tbe convention
was well attended, although there was
some tcrapplng in tbe oaucus as to
the method of procedure.
It is understood that a partisan protest
has been issued against tbe circular sent
out by Chairman Nicolas T. Cordoba,
of the union party, requesting all who
have affiliated with that organization
to be present at the reorganization of
tbe republican parly in Las Vegas on
next Tuesday.the 17th inst. 'Twill do no
good, though. The people of San Mi
guel county are not unlike the people
elsewhere in that they may be fooled
some of the lime, but not all of the time
Tbe success of the republican party is
tbe only open door to the salvation ol
our country. Knock and it shall be
opened unto you. The people of San
Miguel county have knocked and all
tbey have to do is to enter the republi
can fold and be one of us.
Going away from borne, another II I
lustration of the evil of the pardon I
system is found in the case of Mrs

Frank VV. Parker will likely be one of
the delegates to the Albuquerque con
vention from that county,
Ex-GovxBpoft Puinob i Is showing
his hand lo looal politics in Snta Fe
county, and if The Optio mistakes not,
be will show it In lerritoral politics,
this fall. Tbe rx-eovernor is a worker
and those who hold like ambitions had
best be up early and doing late.
THE San Miguel -county delegation
to tbe Albuquerque convention may
not go instructed, but tt is very likely
to declare in favor of John S. Clark, of
this city, (or delegate to the St. Louis
convention. His uwu preoinct of East
Las Vogas is solidly (or him, first, last
and all the time.
The Optic's suggestion that tbe Ter
ritorial delegation to tbe republican
national convention at St. Louis con
sist of three delegates from Santa Fe
oounry and nortb, and of three xrom
Bernalillo county and soutb, is so emi
nently (air and just that it is being re
ceived by very many thoughtful and
prudent republicans with great favor
The Optio hopes that tbe convention
at Albuquerque will adopt this ratio
proposed as being for tbe best inter
ests of tbe party in the Territory.
Tree Note.
Children should plant trees along the
highways if such work is not done by
older people.
Children can inspire the tree and
shrub adornment of cburobyarda an
publlo iquares. ,
Trees should not be planted too near
bouses.
Trees should not be planted too near
together.
'As tbe leaves of trees are said
absorb all noxious qualities of tbe air,
and to breathe tonh a purer atmos
phere, so it seems to me as if tbev drew
from U3 all sordid and angry passions
an i breathed forth peace and phiian
tbropy."
Wood and not gold is the base of
national wealth.
Trees improve the climate by shel
tering tbe ground so that it is warmer
in winter and cooler in summer.
Trees furnish material for a great
variety of things used by man.
'The tree i-t the f-iiher of the ral

The Brice Amendment.
From tbe New Mexican.
Speaking of thin Brice amendment
the Las Vegas Optio savs:
It must be evident that -if Santa Fe
brins its entire p.iwer to defeat the hill
with the Brice amendment, that it thereby
strikes a blow at every ins'ltutlun in tbe
Territory, and bile tbe grievance of tha
couuty my be a Just one, it would Seem
to ou sid-ri tbat it s a case for com
prom lie and arrangement. At all even
tbe remainder or tbe Territory will not
feel well natisned that the in teres s of
Santa r e alone should defeat tbe l'trrl
torUl improvements.
The people ot Santa Fe have no de
sire to defeat tbe bill as It was origin
ally framed by Delegate Catron and in
which form it passed the bouse. Ttiey
are against tbe onoe amendment only,
put on in i be senate and passed there
through tbe most disgraceful m rep
resentations made by Senator Brice
The original bill is of as much concern
to Las Vegas, ."diver City and Knswel
as to Smta Fe, and if the people of
those oommuniiies are level-headed
they will aid Santa i'e in a general
attack on the Brice amendment.

Thrice-a-Week Edition.
The twice-a-week edition of the
