' -: -.''.--) - , ... v ..... A HON. 0, A, LARRAZOLO, NEXT DELEGATE TO CONGRESS. Hon rwnvinnn A T.nrrnioln ttin subject of this sketch ind. democratic candidate for delegate' 'to o&igress from this Territory, was' born at El Valle, state of Chihuahua, Republic of Mexico, just forty years ago, coming to the United States when a babe in arms, At the age of ten years as the pro- tege of the well-remembered Arch- bishop Salpointe, he went to Tucson, Arizona, and has since that time lived in the United States. He lived under the protection and in the favor of Archbishop Salpointe for . six years, and was then sent to St. Michael's col lege In Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he spent two years. With the excep- tion of this assistance,, Mr. Larrazolo, is a self-made man, fOr at the ageof eighteen he went to El Paso, Texas, where his parents then resided, and taught school for two years. He was a. hard' student" and was after a whlle made' assistant In the office of the district clerk at El Paso, afterwards being elected district clerk of El Paso county for two successive terms of two years each. During these years of clerical ser vice, Mr. Larrazolo applied his spare hours to the study of law, for which his courteous bearing.his fine oratori cal powers and his acumen, fully dev eloped in later years, well fitted him. In 1887, at the age of twenty-seven, he was admitted to the El Paso bar. and few men of any nationality ever carried with them to the law's forum greater natural talents. He soon at tracted attention and took his place among the legal fraternity, carving his future with an indomitable ambition, as honorable as it was vaulting. It was not unnatural that this young man, "feeling the tingling of youth's fiery blood, endowed with the energy that impels men forward, burning with the fire that kindles a flame on the altar of fame, Jlid blessed with the talents that companioned his ' ambi tion with the means of its satisfaction should feel a lively interest in the current political questions of the day, and with this spirit antagonize or ad vocate them. The young student car ried with him no inherited faith in politics,, no father's prestige, no fami ly following. Spread before him like a cnoatic panorama was the turmoil of American political struggles. The history of party policies was as an atlas spread before him, where he could trace with retrospective finger the pathway of victory and defeat and read there the various and varying declarations of principles. He who runs may read, it hath been said.. It was not with tH's ambitious novice an inheritance cf faith and imbib ing of party" pri;. -iple from the mater nal breast; the V-S was not inclined from early tcadrrg, hut Octavlano J J ( vii.ul:;:. 0 Larrazolo native of a foreien fitatfi. stood upon adopted soil as the travel- ler who views the limitless plain, wondering whence the trail came and whither It led. . A study of party history decided him to cast his fortunes with the demo- crauc party Decause it was the party of the people, (and verily he was one of them,) and he has been an active and influential member of it since he made his choice. Poof (a all the influences of heredi ty except the proud spirit of gentility, nobility of purpose and humble integri ty, his fortune not forerun with ances tral power, he vaulted into the arena armed with the sword of intellect and the shield of hope, and in all his gladiatorial contests he has never yet placed his foot upon the neck of a foewaiting for the command for death. The people of El Paso county elect ed him district attorney bx an over whelming majority, and there is no man to say that he ever wore an iron heel for the unfortunate. He held other minor offices in Ei Paso county, which evidenced the es teem in which he was held by the masses of his fellow citizens, with whom he was always very popular. After the expiration of his term as. district attorney, Mr. Larrazolo de cfded to cast his fortunes with the people of New Mexico, among whom he had a wide acquaintance, made in his school days at St. Michael's col lege, and who had watched his upward course with equal pride and pleasure, for Octaviano Larrazolo never met an honorable and just man without im pressing him with an appreciation of those gentle and manly traits that steal men's hearts. ; Accordingly , in the fall of 1894, he came to Las Vegas where he has lived for six years, practicing his chosen profession, and the odor of that living is pleasant in ' the nostrils of his friends'. He Is essentially a family man with a noble regard for the sacredness of home and conjugal ties. He has eight children, four of his first wife and four the children of his present wife, a refined and cultured woman who is a help most meet for her dis tinguished husband. Mr. Larrazolo owns a comodious and handsome home in Las Vegas and a stock' and agricultural ranch in Mora county. The young democratic candidate has an attractive personality, genial and urbane; the virility of his- manhood is tempered with the gentleness of a woman. He is true to every obligation and has the courage of his convictions. As a lawyer, be stands well with the bar, and has nsver been guiltyi of sharp practice; E3 a politician, no man can truthfully E-psak him ill; as a hus- band and father, his considerate in Here it WHAT?

Mr. Larrazolo nourishes an honor able ambition to represent the people of New Mexico In the American con gress, an honor of which any young man with his forensic powers may be proud, and despite the slanders of his opponents, who would try to crush a young man with the weight of a poli tical slur for the low purpose of mak ing a few votes with the assassinating instrument of deliberate false pre tense and falsehood, it is said here positively that there are no ties which do or can ever influence hira to work for the interests of any persons or sec tion other than his constituency In the Territory of New Mexico, and the in sinuation that he is connected with El Paso interests or the Stephens bill providing for an international dam or any other interest antagonistic to New Mexico, lately thrust out by his repub lican enemies like a dagger in the dark, will meet an immediate refuta tion in the minds of his political and personal friends, and a merited denun ciation in the opinion of all who know him. Larrazolo does not fight that way, for he has found the weapons of truth stronger than those of false hood and error. As a poor boy in El Paso, Mr. Lar razolo had often seen the mediocre melodramas and serio-tragic plays that exhibited there, and had enjoyed their highly colored romance and heightened adventure. Booth and Barret once played Julius Caesar "there en route to the West. The young Mexi can boy delayed purchasing his ticket till late in the afternoon, when' he found that buyers were standing in line a half mile long, the result was he purchased a high-priced ticket from a street broker; the naturalness of the accomplished Booth and Barrett misled him and he felt that their pres tige was undeserved, for to his uh-J educated mind this was not "acting." As the play progressed he became unconsciously spell bound, and when the ghost of Caesar appeared before Brutus in his tent and exclaimed, "Thou shalt see me at Phillipi!" there was a shock of realization. ' The trem endous reaction had its influence over the life of Larrazolo, and today he is easy prey for the book agent, and in his library- 'may be found choice works on English history, poetry, science and art. He has triumphed over the poor man's obstacle, thus set out by Gray. 'Knowledge to their eyesher ample, page, f ' ; Rich with the spoils of time, did ne'er unroll; Chill penury repressed their noble rage . And froze the-genial current of the soul." This is the man the democrats offer to the people to represent them in con gress. For political purposes he has been grossly misrepresented, but' his admirable .virtues will outlive them. Who know him best love him In that degree, and in this no man's love has gone astray. Without disparagement to his gentlemanly opponent, we can say of Octavlano Larazolo: Here is a man in whom the elements are well mixed, and take him all in all we. shall not look upon his like again. ...

A crowded house greeted the Elks burlesque circus entertainment last evening and it was a decided success In both the manner in which it was conducted, under the management of Prof. Haskell, and from a financial standpoint. The various committees of the Elks worked like troopers, each endeavoring to do his part in making the circus a success, and to say that it was a big one is putting it mildly. It was highly enjoyed by those so for tunate to be present The management staff in the first part represented a side-show at a cir cus. It consisted of G. W. Hartman, who was a typical vocalizer; L. J. Marcus, who sold the tickets; Dr. E. B. Shaw, who sold the reddest of red lem onade; W. B. Bunker, who had charge of the (wagon) wheel of fortune; Har ry Warren, who acted as cop; C, C.
