(Strictly in advance.) ftie year 52 00 isix niotitlm 1 00 OFFICIAL PAPER CP SOCORRO COUNTY. SATURDAY, FED. 8, l02 New Mexico demands statehood of the 57th congress. If an acquaintance greets you wjth unusual cordiality these tlajs don't be too quick to 'sus pect that he is an embryonic can didate for office. It is' possible that you niiht be mistaken. GayKRNOK Otkko quietly took his oath of office last Saturday according to program. His first administration was narked by unusual prosperity throughout the territory and there is every reason to believe that the second will be like unto it. Dr. IIoyt of Detroit, a former member of the board of education, has proved by statistics that at the present rate of increase of in sanity the total population of (his country will in two hundred and fifty years be in I asylums for the insane. Even supposing that the learned Doctor is not already a little daft himself, who the deuce is goingl to conductall those asylums? Tub Chikftain has frequently suggested the advisability of trying to secure a supply of xvatcr for purposes of irrigation in this vicinity, either by boring for an artesian flow or by pump ing from the underflow of the river. Either scheme seems feaS' ible, and .the success of either would probably mean more for Socorro than any other that can be suggested. Why not make the effort? So MR sort' of .accommodations should be provided in Socorro for health seekers of moderate means. Such people arrive in the city almost daily and inquire for cot tages of four or five rooms to rent. Why not organize a com pany for the ferection of fifteen or twenty cottages of that class? The investment would not be a very large one and would be sure to yield a food profit in both di- cct and indirect returns. It is frequently remarked these days that Socorro shows signs pf improvement. While there is perhaps no great reason to think tjiat the city is soon to witness a repetition of the palmy days of twenty years ago, still the re pairing, repainting, and genera renovating of residence property that has been in progress for sev eral monthsis a good indication of a more 11 1 wholesome spirit amongour citizens. arc being formulated into a bill which is about to be introduced n the House, and which will im mediately go before the way and means committee. President Roosevelt, Secretary Root and (iov. Gen. Wood are all in favor of a substantial reduction in the tariff on Cuban sugar in exchange for some concessions by Cuba to United States products. Gen. Wood predicts that twenty years hence Cuba will have a population of 15.000,000. The general is a level-headed man, and he is as well acquainted with Cuban affairs and resources as any other American who can be named, but there is a strong pre sumption that this forecast is ex- traragant. As Cuba's popula tion is now in the neighborhood of 1,500,000, an advance to 15, 000,000 in twenty years would represent a rate of growth which has not been seen in any commu nity anywhere in the world. The United States in the old days used to double every quarter of a century, but the growth pre dicted for Cuba would be many times as great as this. Cuba's growth will be largely determined by her political status. If she remains independent, even though her government should be far better than has ever been set up in any other Latin-American state, her increase will be comparatively slow, notwith- 1 ' standing her wealth in certain sorts of resources and her favora ble climate. If she annexes her self to the United States her ad vance will be speedy and perma nent. There is no room for doubt on this point. Ten times as many immigrants and forty times as much capital would go to Cuba from the rest of the world if Cuba were a part of the United States than would go there if she had a. separate existence. Whether we grant reciprocity to Cuba or not, the intelligent pro gressive Cubans will see before their experiment of independence is long under way that their sal vation lies in political union with the United States. Globe-Democrat. by anybody. These copperheads have nothiug but praise for the bolo men who under the pretense of being friends, murder the American soldiers after taking them unawares. So far as the influence of such men as Dubois, Teller and Money goes it will en courage the insurgents to keep up their murder and pillage. By its proposition to reduce the ex penditure for the army in the Philippines Congress appears to believe that the utterances of these marplots can not nerve the insurgents to keep up their re sistance much longer. Denver Times. linluctlcu iu Militar Outlay. Tiik cut which is proposed in the expenditure for the army for the next fiscal year will be dis appointing for the "militarism" shoutcrs. The military bill when it goes to the house will provide for an appropriation of $91,000,000, which is $20,000,000 below the sum set apart for this purpose last year. Most of this reduction, apparently, is in the item for the Philippines. Of course, there is a possibility that the bill when it goes to the Presi dent will carry a bigjer sum than the $91,000,000 now proposed, but the likelihood is that the sum will be lower and not higher. In general the tendency in military expenditures has been downward since the close of the war against Spain and Aguinal do. Probably the drop will con tinue for a year or two longer, but it will be risky to allow the outlay for the army to go much lower than it is now. The mili- ' tary forces will always in peace It should be borne in mind 1 timcs bave to kePl UP PrettJ that the New Mexico School of Mines is now passing through the most prosperous year of its history. The attendance is Jarger than ever before, the ac commodations are better, the corps of instructors islarger, and the work is better graded. The lion's share of the credit for these improved conditions is due to a painstaking discharge of duty by ihe present efficient board of trustees of the institution. Tue J'uture of Culm. Tub. relations which are to be established between the United States and the Cuban republic is a question which has great inter est for the country. It is a ques tion which will have to be dealt with in the next few weeks. The views of the administration at Washington as to the trade concessions which should be al Jjwrd Cuba bv the United States near the present figure. The elaborate scheme of fortifications of the country's seacoasts have never been completely manned They arc not adequately manned now. Some of the troops which arc withdrawn from Cuba, and some of those which will be taken out of the Philippines when the present troubles in those islands end, will have to be stationed at the forts on the country's ocean line The Democrats, however, are endeavoring to make the stay of the army in the Philippines as long as possible. They are doing this by their denunciations of the army's leaders and their praise of the army's and the country's enemies. A little gan of implacables in Congress are heaping more abuse on Wheaton, Bell and the rest of the army's chiefs in the islands, than was ever extended to the insurgents The t'liliipse I'uiirt. Wiif.n the guns of the allies were heard outside the gates of Pekin in August, 1900, the Chi nese court lied. The emperor, the dowager empress and their attendants traveled first in carts, and then in mule litters, escorted by a mob of Chinese soldiers who were so panic-stricken and de moralized that they are said even to have stolen the meals prepared for their majesties. Hurrying as fast as the primi tive means at its disposal would permit, the court halted first at Ilsuan-hua, northwest of Pekin, and then journeyed southwest to Tai-yuan, where it tarried long euough to establish some scm blance of discipline in its follow ing. But it was not until it reached Singan, in the province of Shensi, the old capital of the empire, six hundred miles from Pekin, that it settled itself to await the progress of events There it remained through the months which were occupied with negotiations with the powers, and for so long a time after they were concluded that the impres sion gained ground that it had no real purpose of returning. But last month, after a journey which consumed many weeks and bankrupted most of the local of ficials along the route by the de mands made on their hospitality, the court reentered Pekin, amid the waving of banners, the blow ing of bugles, and all the acces sories of a gorgeous Orienta pageant. In what temper does it come back? Is the emperor the real ruler, or the dowager empress Of the confused medley of reac tionary and reformatory decrees that have emanated from the court during its nearly seventeen months of exile, which are the expression of its actual purposes? These questions cannot be answered now. But surely the conditions under which the court takes up the task of government are most difficult. Returning to their capital humiliated, confus ed and suspicious, the rulers o China may well claim, until they have had time to "find them selves," that suspension of judg ment which is accorded to the humblest person.

TrvnMes Ahead for Uor. When the daughter of the house returns from college she is sometimes inclined to forget that there are serious duties awaiting her. It is then, says the Chica go Journal, that the wise mother brings her to a different point of view. The girl had b:en very clever n her studies, and had been at home only a few days when she said to her mother: "Yes, I've graduated, but I don't want to ose my interest in my work, and shall try to keep up my psycho logy, philology, bibli " "Just wait a minute," said her mother.

Get your apron on and pluck that chicken." A Double Tram. A man who was bicycling in southern France was pushing his machine up a steep hill when he overtook a peasant with a donkey-cart. The patient beast was making but little progress, al though it was doing its best. The benevolent cyclist, putting his left hand against the back of the cart and guiding his machine with the other hand, pushed so hard that the donkey, taking fresh courage, pulled his load successfully up to the top. When the summit was reached the peasant burst into thanks to his benefactor. save me cniwi if That is th heartfelt cry of many mother who aes hsr beloved child wast in? nnd idiDf da? by dir.

A Washington dispatch says: President Koosevclt today carried out the promise made Saturday to Forest Supervisor Seth Bul lock, that in future forest rangers shall be selected by the super visors, and not by the secretary of the interior, by writing a per emptory letter to the secretary of the interior to that effect. It di rects the secretary in future to leave the appointment of forest ranges wholly in the hands of the forest supervisor, who know what is required and who will name western men, familiar with the country, able to camp out in snow or blizzard and to meet every requirement of the arduous situation. Eastern theorists and "tenderfeet" must not be given places. Representative Tongue, of Ore gon, called on the president to day and presented along petition signed by the members of the courts of his state, members of the legislature and prominent citizens generally, protesting against what they understand to be the new policy of the interior department as to the policing of forest reservations. The petitioners insist that the forest rangers now employed, who are well acquainted with their duties and perform them faithfully, should be retained, and the policing of the parks not turned over to inexperienced men. If one has a cool room, where the air can be kept moist day time wheu the sun is strong, one may be able to grow violets in the house. Hut in a hot room failure is a foregone conclusion.
