In a friendly way and for the good of the party It Is well that the question of a candidate for delegate in con gress should be considered. The democratic party has many able and strong men within ita ranks, in New Mexico, anyone of whom can carry the democratic banner triumphantly this tpw. I ia a. democratic year. The people are so thoroughly disgusted with outrageous oppression and injus tice of the so called Duncan tax law that they are ready to repudiate It at the polls. The coal oil legal larceny by which the masses are bled for the benefit of a few is a nuisance to be wiped off the statute book. The Otero faction now running the republican party with its hand against every old line republican who refuses to dance to Otero music is a crowd hostile lo the best interests of this , Territory, and whose hold on the public teat Is to be loosened at the coming election. Under these conditions democracy needa a brave, gallant champion, able to strike strong blows for better con ditions.' It needs man willing to take the democratic nomination against the republican field and to fight his way to victory. Democracy does not want a leader In this contest willing to carry the banner only in the event that Mr. Perea, or Governor Otero, or eome weak man Is in the field. Such a position is not creditable end Is not calculated to inspire pub lic confidence. Give us ft candidate willing and ready to make battle against the strongest of our adver saries, ready to take the banner of the people and enter the lists, against all comers. We have such men and democracy should hunt them out. Give us an early convention and a strong candidate. Why should we adopt the policy of a late convention, and give the republicans all the advantage which their barrel will confer. Rather give us an early convention and a can dldate who has courage enough to fight the very king of the Oteroites. If that man be Mr. Sol. Luna with all his money as the representative of Oteroism ' the democracy can match 4 him and beat him. If it is to be Gov ernor Prince, professing fidelity to silver, while astride of a gold platform democracy has a man who can meas ure swords with him on the rostrum. Who for delegate? How many of thone favorably mentioned are willing to take the democratic standard, no matterwho the republicans may nom inate. Have our friends in the south such a man? For Sale by 0. G. SCHAEFER IN THE CRUCIBLE OF PUBLIC OPINION A Citizen of the Southern Part or the Territory Propounds Same Knotty Questions ADMINISTRATION IS SCORED A HARD FACT. Western people particularly can ap preciate the truth of the following re- mark by Mr. Bryan recently about the Boers: ' "The Boers are Industrious and in telligent, and have shown themselves lovers of liberty. If they lose their fight for Independence I hope they Vlll come to the United States. wish, they could come soon enough to help save this country from the im perialism that to driving them from South Africa. A small part of the money now being expended on war of conquest would, If spent In re claiming arid lands, furnish comes for all Boer and thousands of our people besides." The People of Southern New Mexloo Thoroughly Aroused in Opposition to the Gang Now Bleeding the Ter ritory; Men of All Parties Unite In Denunciation of the Abominable Coal Oil Bill, the Land Leasing Bill and the Means and Machinations of the Plunderer of the Peoule. Special Correspondence of The Optid. Sliver aty, N. M., June 2d, 1900. Expressions of dislike and condemna tion of the present Territorial admin istration are freely indulged In by the people of Grant county. In every town, precinct and home of the county, re gardless" ".of party ties. On every tongue is to be heard criticism and severe condemnation ' of "'Governor Otero and his leading appointees, es pecially Mr. Clark, who draws a lucra tive salary as coal oil inspector for oil which he never Inspects, and the Vand leasing commissioners, "who are ably assisting the chief 'squeeze' "in robbing the people whose servant he ts supposed to ba The people of this county are audacious enough to ask numerous pertinent questions of hie excellency questions which they do not expect-him to answer; for well does the governor know that the ques tions answer themselves and that the people, not only of Grant county, but of every county in the Territory, know him - and his appointees whose con duct upon every occasion can be count ed upon to rebound to the dishonor of the Territory. As an example of the anxiety of the leading citizens' of this county, whose desire it is to be informed as to mat ters connected with the present Ter ritorial administration, a prominent citizen, the other day, wanted to know if Billy Martin, at present a hench man of. the governor's,, and formerly coal oil Inspector, whd during his' term of office, collected over $5,000, had yet accounted to . the -. Territory for the same. " ." "If not," said this citizen, "why not? Haven't we a solicitor general on the pay-rolls of the Territory?-Why doesn't he perform the duties of his office? There is no Information to the effect that he 'hat resigned, or that he falls to present himself at the Ter ritory's public crib on pay-day, Is there? Now, why does not this officer compel Martin or his" bondsmen, to make settlement of this amount . of The coal oil bill, furnishes the coal oil inspector, John S. Clark, It Is al leged on pretty good authority, with $10,000 a year, for "services rendered In ante-McKJnley days. It furnishes an excellent excuse for the coal oil trust to derive from the sale of their uninspected product something like $100,000 a year. For every gallon of oil sold In the Territory "Coal Oil Johnny" gets one cent and the oil com pany gets twelve to thirteen cents gallon more than the inspected pro duct sells for In Trinidad and El Paso. And it isnl the amount so much as It Is the principal Involved. The Baptists are asking for bids and Inducements from all towns In the Territory for the building of the Bap tist college of New Mexico. Else where in this Issue will be found the statement of the conditions desired The town that has the moat to offer, It seems, will get the college which on completion will be worth $100,000. Las Vegas can give as much and little more than any other town, If It Is determined that the game is worth going after. C. C. Walker, Box B, Aiamogordo, Invites correspondence on the subject. People in Raton and Las Cruces, the former twetny-five miles from Trin idad, and the latter forty-four miles from El Paso, pay twice as much for coal oil as ia paid by residents of the Colorado and Texa3 cities. Why? globe by QMt eo-.:tsty pop!9 rfn't augur much for the future of Otero and his band of office holders and henchmen. The watchword or irani county citizens Is.

It Is a well known fact to the in telligent voters of this county that the most obnoxious measure ever pass ed by a New Mexico legislature, or in fact by a legislative body in the hltory-of this Territory ,was the coal oil bill passed by the last republican legislature, which was dominated and coatroled by Governor Oero. What was the purpose of the passage of such an unjust and abominable meas ure is a question asked by the large majority of the people of Grant coun ty- -v "Why did our own (Grant county's) representative in the legislature vote for such an obnoxious law?" The answer of this gentleman ex plains the reason, It ig this! "My voting for the measure was Im perative from the fact that my ap pointment as district attorney for the counties of Grant and Sierra depend ed upon It. Had I fallec) to give the measure my support, the governor would, have failed to appoint me to the above named office. I was given to understand this by the governor himself when the measure came up." Why did the present incumbent, cor rupt the- high office of governor by intimidating the people's representa tives in the last legislature? Why did he use the power of his office to force the representatives to give their approval to such a corrupt measure? "If the governor did, during the legislature, Intimidate the legisla tors in the matter of the passage of this measure, in order that he might give a fat office to the most corrupt man in the Territory, what wouldn't he do?," queried a prominent ctizen of one of the outside precincts, "last week, when speaking of the matter to a number of friends, "What Is John S. Clark doing to earn his large salary? What benefits, do the people of the Territory receive In exchange for the large amount of money paid him? Will the governor please answer. i no peopie or this county would iiks exceedingly well to know how much of the oil consumed In this coun ty is ever inspected by Mr. Clark? taov. utero will confer a great fav or upon all citizens, regardless of par ty, of this county, and the entire Ter ritory, by answering the above ques tions. WILL HE DO SO? One of the leading stockmen of the western-portion of the county was spending a few days in Silver City the other day, attending to a large ship ment 6f 'cattle. In talking over Ter ritorial , matters, he said: in i am- not so very well Informed In Territorial affairs, except In so far as they effect my Interests In a fausi est way. Recently, have had some business transactions with thi. land commission, which I believe Otero ap pointed, under the new Yerrltorial leasing law. After getting mv anrili. o- ri which In the reign of Yaous, 2256 B, C, covered the greater part of the area included within the present China proper. "From that time to th'ls, China has had a continuous history. In the days of Yaous, Europe was Inhabited by savages. Some of them were in the stone age; some were living a civ ilized kingdom in Egypt and a shadow? civilisation in western Asia.- Bt Moses was etlll a thousand years In the future, and the Trojan war two or three centuries farther still. China was to have 1,600 years of turbulent history before the world would hear the name of Rome. All that tremendous panorama thftt we call the history pf Europe began to unroll when China was older than any European kingdom Is now. The authentic history of China had been going on for more than 2,000 years when the ancestors - of Germans, Frenchman an4 Englishman were still wandering savages. It was not until mow aan 3,000 years after the reign of Yaou that Charlemagne re vived the Roman empire in the west and converted the heathen Saxons to Christianity with the sword, "And now the descendants of the European savages who were, gnawing roots In the golden age of China are marching on Pekfn and the oldest institution of human history tottering to its fall."
