O-ie year S2 00 '.Six month 1 00 OFFICIAL TAPER OF SOCORRO COUNTY. .SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1902. New Mexico demands statehood of the 37th congress. I'kincr IIknky's visit to our shores will serve one rrood pur pose at least. It will furnish an occasion for such blatherskites as Wheeler to talk themselves to 'death. Tkhrv McGovkkn and Den Tillman arc now in reach of championship honors. Each of them may at least hope soon to command the adoration of the s juarc jawed, pujf nosed rabble. Hon. K. S. Rodky is not a quitter. While others are begin ning to express grave doubts of New Mexico's being granted statehood at this session of Con gress, Mr. Rodey is still cham pioning the cause with that con fidence and energy which must :il ways animate the winner of a great battle. Every reasonable inducement should be offered to secure the location of that glove factory in Socorro. The city possesses great advantages for just such an institution. Besides, every such institution secured is an ad ditional inducement for others to come. Here is a case in which Socorro can afford to be liberal. Thk Chieftain acknowledges the receipt of a copy of Governor (hero's report for 1901. This report conforms to the rule that each successive report issued from the Governor's office con tains more complete and detailed information than any of its pred ecessors have given concerning New Mexico and her many attractions. Ip was reported the first of the week that Miss Stone's ransom had been paid, but that the goods had not been delivered. The in stinct of those Bulgarian brig ands for driving a sharp bargain is to be admired but their knowl edge of existing conditions is not broad enough. They should deliver Miss Stone voluntarily, imposing the condition only that they be allowed to manage her lecture tour in the United States for forty per cent of the gate re ceipts. A Captain'- 1'IkIiU In response to the appeal of Admiral Schley President Roose velt states his opinion of the con duct of the battle off Santiago with a characteristic directness and force. As usual, details do not confuse the President's vision, but he sees clearly the main points in the controversy and states them with frankness and courage. The president's opinion is in effect that Sampson was technically in command of the American squadron and that he is to be credited with the pre paradness of the fleet; that Schley committed a grave error in the famous loop of the Brook lyn but afterwards handled his ship courageously and well; and that neither Sampson nor Schley was in effective command, as not .1 single order that had the slightest bearing on the conduct of the battle was issued by either of them in other words, that "it .was"' a captains fight." This seems 'to be a jH-rfectljr fair and impartial statement of the case and the public will doubtless ac- 1 1't tl asuii'h and as fni;il. The whole controversy lias toen extremely unfortunate and uncalled for. It has tended to dim the glories of one of the greatest achievements in the history of naval warfare. Now that President Roosevelt has given the opinion that will doubt less be that of the future histor ian, it is to be hoped that "no further action be had in the matter." Protesting too Much. Sevekal generals who served in the revolutionary forces in Cuba have sent to Washington a document claiming that the Cubans are almost starving on account of bad economic condi tions, and asking at the hands of the United States that Cuba "be allowed to live." Cuba is a fer tile island, and as frost is un known anywhere within its boundaries, the raising of food goes on continuously. There is plenty of room for the popula tion of 1,500,000. No public debt exists. When Spain relin quished sovereignty the island was freed from a debt charge of $12,602,000 and military taxes of $5,,000 a year. Cuba sup ported the Spanish troops. We pay our own army bills. The remarkably successful sanitary improvement of the island has been paid for without special taxation. Attendance at the public schools has been increased fourfold and nearly 3000 teachers are employed. The postal sys tem has been modernized. Suf ficient revenue is produced by a moderate tariff and a large sum of money will remain in the treasury when we retire. In a short time, under these favorable conditions, Cuba will be under its own flag and shap ing economic conditions through its own distinct legislative and executive action. If it were true that the Cubans arc starving and pleading with us for a chance to live, the claim that the island is able to sustain a government of its own under any circumstances would have to be questioned. But emotional extravagance of language is not unknown among certain Cuban leaders. . Nothing more than ordinary perception is required to sec that Cuba can never realize its greatest possi bilities until it is part of the territory of the United States. It prefers a separate government and the road is open. As a dis tinct republic it may get along better than many persons believe, but after all that has been freely done for it, the talk of impend ing starvation and ruin can only be excused on the ground that it is a misconception. Denver Times. Tift's Philippine Plan. There is nothing startling in the plan suggested by Gov. Taft for the government of the Phil ippines. He would (1) give the Filipinos a qualified suffrage, which should be gradually in creased as they learn the Eng lish language, and get a knowl edge of American institutions; he would (2) give them a two branch local legislature, one to ; le chosen by the legal voters and ! the other to be appointed; and he would (3) allow the islands to send two or three representatives to Washington to look after their interests at the seat of govern ment. Government for the Philip pines on some such lines as these has been in the minds all along of most of the Americans who have thought seriously of the matter at all. It has been sug gested by many persons. Presi dent McKinley made promise of some such scheme several times. An intimation of it was con tained in the message of Presi dent Roosevelt. The American people, therefore, will not be sur prised at Gov. Taft's proposal. All the Filipinos who have be come acquainted with the situa tion in the United States have been expecting a government along these lines. Nevertheless, it might be well for Congress to make a specific declaration of policy on this sub ject. The legislation which has been had, and that on which the Taft commission has been at work, has had this sort of a gov ernment in view. The Ameri can people arc willing and anx ious to give the Filipinos all the home rule which they can stand advantageously to themselves, to the United States, and to the in terests of the citizens of the other countries who have inter ests in the islands. They want to give this government to the islands at the earliest practica ble day. ' Perhaps Gov. Taft's recommendations may induce Congress to make a formal declar ation of this general policy. It is to be hoped that it will. It will be well for Congress to c the world know at the same time that the American flag is in the Philippines to stay, and that there, as everywhere else where it floats, it will stand for human ity, civilization and progress. Globe-Democrat. An KxpRiidliivc Government. During President Washing ton's administration there were only five executive departments those of the Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Sec retary of War, Attorney-General and Postmaster-General. The growing needs of the nation, and the expansion of the government in directions not at first foreseen, may be traced in the gradual creation, first of new boards, bureaus and commissions charged with duties, and then- the estab lishment of new departments as the old departments became un manageable because they were encumbered by too many branch es of the public service, or by duties which were manifestly in congruous. Since Washington's time a Secretary of the Navy, a Secre tary of the Interior and a Secre tary of Agriculture have been added to the Cabinet. Now it is proposed to create a department of Commerce and Labor, to which are to be transferred various bureaus from three of the older departments. The Senate has already passed the bill establish ing the department. The Cab inet may hereafter be enlarged by the formation of still another department, which will have jur isdiction over matters connected with American "dominions be yond the seas." A man cannot wear the cloth ing of a boy, nor can a nation of nearly eighty million people get on with the equipment which was ample for a nation of eight millions. Comparisons of the present cost of government with that of an earlier day are mis leading when they fail to take into account the fact that we are a more numerous people, and that we have more things to do and more ways of spending money than formerly.

The sheepmen of the state have been thorough ly organized for years and as a result those interests are well taken care of. The cattlemen are realizing that their interests are not only being neglected but suffering, especially on the mat ter of free range. Therefore, John II. White, president of what is known as the Utah Live Stock association, has called a meeting of all the cattlemen of his state to conrene at Salt Lake City on April 4, during the week that the annual conference of Mormons is to be held. Mr. White has asked the assistance of the officers of the National Live Stock association by lend ing their presence and President Springer and Secretary Martin will attend. Other well known speakers identified with the live stock industry of the country have also been invited, among them ex-Congressman Jerry Simpson of Kansas and M. A. Daugherty of Nebraska. These gentlemen will endeavor to awaken the Utah cattlemen to the needs and advantages of a state organization. Denver Times. ( liionic Dkirrlwcri. Mr. C. B.
