Who for Territorial delegate? 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?

Hear official please answer?"
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
"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

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:
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.
which In the reign of Yaous, 2256 B,
C, covered the greater part of the
area included within the present China
"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."
