For Delegate to CoDgress, II. B. FERGUSSON, Of Albuquerque. NOMINATED BY THE DEMOCRATS. NOMINATED BY THE POPULISTS. ENDORSED BY THE SILVER REPUBLICANS, FRIDAY EVENING, OCT. 9, 1896. A FEEBLE FALLACY. One of tbe arguments of the gold bugs against the free coinage of silver, is that tbe mints of tbe country would not be able to meet the demands laid upon them, so great would be the rush of silver from nil parts of the world, to be converted into coin. But there do reason to thins: that such would be tbe case. Tbe mere fact that tbe bul lion could be coined, would cause the bullion itself to have coin value, the charges of transportation to mint. Hence, there would ba necessity for any great rush to the 00 the mints. ; - The cae is well illustrated by i bank check. As long as there is con fidence in the bank, we are In no bur ry to have the check cashed. It may and frequently does, pass through many bands, from the original drawer, till it finds its way into the bank. But if there is doubt about the bank's solvency, at once tbe check is present ed. In times of confidence, banks lend large amounts of money, not their own, relyioer upon the fact that depositors permit their surplus to re- mam uncollected. But let confidence be destroyed, and every man draws his money from. the bank. There is what is called a run on the bank, and tbe bank breaks. Just so would it be concerning free ooinage of silver. When the the law gave every man the privilege of hav ing his silver coined Into money, at a fixed proportion, the price cf silver would be uniform, the world over, less transportation charges, , and there would be no necessity for any great and burdensome hurry after coinage Tbe gradual convention of bullion into money would be determined by tbe demand for an increased circulating medium. If tbe enemies of free coin age cannot find any better argument against tbe cause, they bad best give up their cause. TnE carnival of sports at Albuquer que, under the auspices of tbe Territorial fair assoaiation, commenc ing next Monday and continuing through tbe week, will attract tbe multitudes from every part of tbe Ter ritory, notwithstanding tbe depressed times through which the country i9 now passing. People will go," when the going is cheap, even though they know full well that they will be disap pointed in their anticipations of what the carnival will be. A cent a mile on the railroads insures a big 'crowd la Albuquerque all next .week."' ..i-.?.v - i What about the electric railroad that was coming through Las 'Vegas to Taos? It won't come in through Las Vegas and we might as well expect If from heaven. Taos Hinpano-Americano. ', ! ( This ciiy Is below the "devil's' gap" in tbe Raton mountains and about as near heaven and as convenient to Taos as any other place in New Mexioo. As to railroad construction, there Will be nothing of the kind undertaken till after the presidential contest shall have been derided, one way or tbe other. Bide your time and wait, fellow. ' APT ANMVEI18AUV To-day is the twenty fifth anniver sary of the great Cbioago fire. From 9 o'clock on tbe evening ol October 6th, 1871, to tbe same time on tbe evening of October 9th, a great city was wiped out of existence, , A total of nearly 18,000 buddings, o( which, 14 , U00 were dwellings, were reduced t asbes, leaving a .population of about. 800,000 homeless. Tbe work of mora than a quarter of a oentnry was wiped out in a day, all that remained being asbes and ruins, strewn over tbe ' more than 2,000 acres that had been the site of a modern city and to the wreck was added aoouplerf hundred oorpses, probably half of wbfoh could not be identified. Tbe homeless people! on tbe eve of approaohing winter, con templated the loss of $200,000,000 worth of tbeir property. I But those people only suooumbed to despair for a little time and thea, rising with new determination, began tbe building of the city that must aland as one of the wonders of tbe world. Upon and around tba ashes of tbeir property and their hopes, tbey have erected, in the past quarter of a cen tury, one of tbe great oities of tbe world." They hava 'aUr'aoted to them tbe peoples of tbe rf world until the population of the new city exceeds a million They- devised , tbe sky scraper" temple of trade that outrivals the magnificent temples of mythology oal gods and goddesses ot tbe ancient civilizations. ' ' WE AND OUK NEIGHBORS. The Optic desires to live in peaoe and harmony with all its brethren of the Territorial press. It is tiue we have bad some rather severe encoun ters with tbe daggers of hard words; but it bas only been to defend ourself against what we deemed to be unpro voked assault. In all such cases, we have struck out from the shoulder,' promptly endeavoring to put in our best work : and doubtless such will continue to be our course. When quite a small boy, we read in the old blue- back spelling book, ot tbe man who at tempted to dive the bad boy from bis apple tree oy using kind words, by using harsh words, by throwing grass and bv throwing stones. It was the last which fetched the apple-stealef, Our joun' mind disapproved of the course. . It seemed to us a waste ot time and of effort. Tbe man should have begun with tbe stones, sending them hot and heavy from tbe start. Our mature judgment bas not differed from our boyhood's thoughts. When we have snakes to kill, we seizs the most deadly weapon witbin onr reach and attempt to dispatch the reptile at the first blow. Our newspaper fights have been of the same character. Whenever an unwarranted and nn provoked attacked bas been made upon us, it has been our purpose ana eriors at the first onslaught to unhorse our adversary, to overwhelm him with utter and irretrievable defeat; for, there is anything which arouses all the diabolical intensity of our malignity, it is to be attacked without cause or provocation. But while we hate tbe sin, we still the sinner love; and with out an exception, we have a feeling of tbe utmost cordiality for our oompatri ots of tbe press of New Mexioo. We believe that tbe Territorial papers, as a whole, will compare favorably as to ability with tbe press of any other country in a similar stage of advance ment, while we are confident that they are doing as much for the development of the Territory as is being done by all other instrumentalities oombioed. . : Hknrt Georgk flods that the wear and tear of this campaign visiting' is telling sadly on Major McKinldyT He Is much worn and bis manner bas lost its elasticity.

To th Editor of the Optic. Santa Fe, October 8, 1896. -There Is consternation in Saata Fe among tbe Catronists. Tbey are hard up for money ana are lighting among them selves, already, about the county and federal offices. It seems funny that tbey are already fighting over the offices, but tbey are, all tbe same Since frioce found be could not play tne popuiiBw, ne is sticking again by tne repuoncan party and will be a can aiaaie lor governor. This does not suit Morrison, neither does it suit Pedro Perea, who is, also, lookiog with longing eyes in mat direction. . For Unitod States attorney, Lawyer risae says ne nas the lnBiiie track and he does not care a d n for Catron's election and since Fergusson has promised to stand by Santa Fe in tbe capitol location question, be would just as willingly vote for bim as- for Catron. He talks against Catron and tbe republicans conslaotlv. Berger, who was a federal official. lour years ago, bas gone east and will not be back till immediately before tbe election, so as to be out of reach, Don't pick bim up for a fool. ' Frost and Bsrtlett and Catron's man, Antonio Ortiz, are working for Catron. but it can be seen it does not suit them mucn and they certainly have no money, because tbey are constantly kicking. . Catron fooled away, two weeks of time, since tbo nomination, east, and no one knows yet if be bas succeeded In getting boodle," and the faithful are very anxious and very much disturbed by bis silence on tbe boodle question. Levi Hughes sulks, and altogether tbe wheel-horses are badly scared and badly mixed up. ' If the populists can Induce the dem oorats to nominate Arthur Boyle, a member of the pjpulist executive com mittee, for the council, it will strength en tbeir ticket very much and tbe dem ocrats will win. Webber and Boyle the populist leaders here, are good workeri and get around a good deal and could do good work for the demo oratio ticket. They both dislike Cat ron about as mush as Fiske or Prince do, and they dislike him, as everybody knows, very heartily. Cunningham will control the demo cratic county ticket, although Thorn ton insists on having representation for his faction on it. If Cunningham is wise, be will go in with the populists and carry out tbe agreement made at Las Vegas to give tbe populists repre seDtation on the county tickets. It the demoorats and populists com bine, tbey will oome out of southern Santa Fe county witn enough of a ma jority to elect their whole ticket. Fer gusson bas made a very good impres sion bere and will not lose many votes on account of tbe capitol question. Chairman Webber, of the populist committee, announces bis intention of making a vigorous campaign for Fer gusson and for tbe democratic county ticket, if tbe popnlists are recognized All these things have thrown oonster nation into the republican campus, and tbe longer Catron stays away and there is no boodle" from him, tbe worse the confusion. One or the People CEEMS as if all the things we like disa gree with us, and all the things we don't like, agree with us. Dyspepsia lurks in most of the good thinga we eat, and indigestion follows the gratification of appetite. Of course, it isn't Nature's fault. Nature does the best she can, and if a man will' only help ler a little bit at the right time, he may eat what he likes and as much as he likes.
