Capitalists have bad some of the great irrigation schemes which are being develop ed hero brought to th"ir attention, and in at least one important case have said that they would invest the necessary capital as soon as we became a state. . The discusnion in congress over onr admission to statehood has already brought and kept the name of New Mexico lM-fore the eyes of politicians throughout the Union. The ground has thus been prepared and all that is now needed to bring about a rapid growth in our population and wealth is statehood.

M., September 17, 1S'.)1, and to elect idtgatea to the Dintrict Conven tions to be held for nominating candidates of the democrat ie party for tho Territorial letrislatnro. The apportionment has been niado upon tho basis of the vote cast for Antonio Joseph fori dele gate to congress at tho 1392 flec tion. The following is a list of the precincts with the number of dele gates each precinct is entitled to, und the names of tho peisons con stituting the Democratic County Committee who will call precinct mass meetings: The conventions bo fur held throughout the United States have mhown a popular feeling in favor of the present administration that han been a surprise to those who have taken their political views from ultra-political, republican newspapers and disappointed de mocratic office-seekers. As time goeB on and when the elections como the surprise of those who are not watching the signs of the times will be still further increased, for straight democracy has taken a firm hold on the people and is again going to win. Long may it control, to lead the nation from the depths of distress into which it has been thrown by republican misgovernment and fraud to the bright futuro of 'success and pros perity. The Enterprise says: "Who are tho people meant by the scurril lous epithet "voting sheep herds?" in making a quotation from the Santa Fe New Mexican. Is the Enterprise bo unacquainted with the political hitory of New Mexico as not to know of the notorious way in which the republicans stole au election aome years ago by voting herds of eheep. And uot contented with voting them once they were made "repeaters" by driving them around a hill and voting them again as fresh herds? It is by such tricks as this that New Mexico was formerly made to appear republican. Tho indigna tion which the Enterprise works itself into over this is ludicrous and exposes its itruorance about this Territory. storing freo and unlimited coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1, coins of both metals to be equally full legal tender for all debts, public and private, as before tho fraudu lent demonetization of silver in 1873. We beg to call the attention of the echool board to the fact that no poll tax was collected in this precinct last year. This money goes to tho school, which needs every dollar it can get. No man would bo so small and mean at to refuse to pay a dollar towards the support of the school, and while no enormous sum would be got from this source, a very apprecia ble addition to the school fund would be made if the poll tax were rigidly collected. Let the board see to it that the tax is collected this year. Six hundred and fifty- one dollars was collected in this precinct in 1892, and whilo as much could not be got now the Bum that could be realized is well worth looking after.

Assuring us, one and all, that the Sherman act was the sole cause of the bard times, and that tho repeal of this law would ensure us an improvement in business, an increase in wages as well as in prices for wool, wheat, cattle, fruit and everything else, that gold ship ments would cease, gold would flow into the country and, with the Sherman act repealed and the McKiuley act in force, a general state of prosperity and joy would abound. The Sherman act was ro- 'pcaled, the McKiuley act has remained in force, but what, oh! what have become of the republi can promises. in regular session in Santa Fe for mally proclaimed their earnest de sire for statehood, and telegraphed to Washington urging on senators and representatives the importance of pushing through the bill for the admission of what wo all hopo will bo tho forty-Bixth stato in the Union. Congress adjourns today without having passed the bill, but the short session will be on soon, when it is more than probable that the bill will bo among the earliest to be taken up and acted on. Tbe advantages of statehood are too great and too patent to need en forcing on our" people, but it is necessary to bear in mind that we must work hard, unitedly and patriotically to got congress to carry this bill through. It will when brought up undoubtedly meet with . the bitterest and most determined opposition from the anti-silver elements. It is this element in the senate which pre vented the passage of the bil during the session just past Not only for tho Bake of our merely local interests but for the influence which New Mexico as a state wil have on the all-important Bilver question íb it necessary that, lay ing asido party feelings and per sonal prejudices, New Mexicans work together together for what ever will bring about statehood at the earliest possible day, that of Now Mexico shall bo pnssed instead of the prem-nt bill. This would place Arizona behind both the other newly admitted PtateH, as the New Mexico bill is now the first on tho calendar and it is very likely that the President in issuing his proclamation will justly pay attention to tho order in which the bills were passod. Therefore the prospects are that the forty-sixth stale will bo New Mexico end thus a cnrtoim coinci dence would result, as the territory out of which it wos evolved was admitted as a part of the United States in 181G. There will be an attempt to have this coincidence carried out 60 that it may add another thing to causo people to remember the state. a i'omr.R.

We aro glad to eeo tho manly support that is being given by the New Mexican to Sheritf Cunning ham of Santa Fe- county. Santa Fe, under the old republican ring was infamous as tho headquaiters of tho worst gang of murderers and thugs in the United States, and it was common report that thebe criminals were at once tho servants and the masters of tho daring and unscrupulous politicians who used them and protected them. ThiB was no secret, but as long aa the old ring was in power it was lm jiossiblo to bring either these criminals or their employes to justice. Now that democrat is fcheritf, and reputable, determined men are at the head of tho Terri tory, on tho bench, and acting as prosecuting attorneys the shoritf is able to do his duty without the certainty of being assassinated for so doiug; and theHO criminals aro being brought to justice and punished.

The platform endorses tbe admin istration of President Cleveland, declares dovotion to the principles of the national democratic platform of 1S92 atnl congratulates the peo ple upon tho fact that "notwith standing the open opposition of the republican party and the con duct of a few pretended democrats, a substantial measure ct tanii reform has been effected." Tho financial plank of the platform favors tho retirement of all gold coins and paper currency below tho denomination of ten dollars and the re-opening of the mints to the coinage of both gold aud silver on such basis as will main tain their parity. The ono thing that New Mexico needs just now above all others is statehood. This she can help to get for hersolf by working for it. The other things that she needs she is powerless to aid in getting till she ceases to bo a Territory and becomes a Btato. With statehood she will have a voice and votes ou tho eilver question, on the tariff issue, on arid lands and irrigation ; whilo without statehood sho inubt sit ou one bide and let others have their uninterrupted way on these questions so vitul to herself.

The cause of the failure to pass the bill for the admission of New Mexico at the session just expired is very plainly set forth in a letter to the New Mexican from Wash ington. It says the democratic senators found that while they could get the Utah bill out of the committee and through the main body without much trouble that they had a fight on their hands with tho republicans on both the New Mexico and Arizona bills, The men who were most bitter on these deserving commonwealths protectionist goidbug from Con nocticut and Davis, the goklbug corporation attorney, who has been put in tho 6onato by the moneyed interests of Minnesota. On the floor of the Benate the principal opposition came from tho republican sido, as it is uot desir able iu their view that any mon senators who will yote against tho protective cormorants and goldites shall come in and stop tbe stealing that is now going on. They will be aided by the one or two gold bugs on tho democratic Bido, be longing to tho conservative elameut that in the late tariff fight proved themselves to be without the palo of the democratic party and enti tled to be condemned. Kut Chairman Faulkner, of the committee on territories, told the New Mexican's correspondent in tho plainest terms a few days bo fore that he did not intend to let tho New Mexico and Arizona bills be killed by tho opposition. The democratic party has given a prom ise of homo rulo and iuteuda that it shall be carried out. Therefore early in the short session tho bills will be called up and it will bo the policy of the democrats, aided by ono or two silver republicans from the west who are not so hide bound as their eastern brethren, to hammer at the mutter until the bills become law.
