will win a still more profound re
spect than it now .enjoys in the
public mind if it will continue to
unveil the dark doings of some of
the political knaves th broke
into the 35th general assembly.
A man should be a Republican
because he lelieves that the prin
ciples advocated by the KcptiMi
can party are best. How does
that fact compel allegiance to a
political boss who has no more
conception of a political principle
than a hog has of astronomy,
and who maintains his mastery
by such practices as ought to
send him to the penitentiary, or,
better still, to the gallows?
It is a little amusing that IJer
nalillo county should claim to be
the pioneer in political reform.
Socorro county has already ac
.complished'that object by a hard
battle at the polls and another in
the courts, while Hernalillo
, county is just taking the prelini-
.inarv steps. However, Socorro
county extends the hand of fel
lowshin and hopes that her
neighbor will make a still more
thorough job of it.
Tiik Chikitain will hereafter
contain a column of items con
cerning the School of Mines. It
is believed that those items will
bo of interest to the readers of
the paper. It its believed also
that they will serve to attract
the attention pf possible students
to the special advantages afford
ed by the School of Mines for the
perusal of such coursrs of study
as are offered. No effort will be
.spared to accomplish this pur
pose. Wiiokvhk the responsible par
ties may le, they would render a
valuable public service and at
,thc same time free themselves of
certain dark s-uspicions in the
public mind if they would pub-
of statehood with their strong-
et possible argument.
Tiik territorial cattle associa
tion is in a position to accom
plish muca good for its individ
ual members and for other citi
zens as well. It is beyond ques
tion that the organisation can if
properly handled wield a tremen
dous political influence. Thus
it can. for instance, secure the
passage of a law by the next
general assembly authorizing the
taxing of sheep in the county in
which they graze. That law
would be of great benefit to the
vast majority of tax-payers.
Those sheep-men who take ad
vantage of the present nefarious
law to dodge tlu-ir taxci might
think themselves aggrieved, but
no apology would be due them.
The cattle association should re
ceive all possible encouragement
Tin? AlbiKjueripie Journal
Democrat makes a mistake in
publishing the suggestion that
the (íood (lovernment League
should secure an examination of
the books of Iiernalillo county.
Within the memory of men still
living the county commissioners
of Socorro county entered upon
just that fort of an undertaking
in just that way. The result
was that when the experts cm
ployed to do the work were ready
to begin operations, behold! cer
tain books necessary to their
purpose had very mysteriously
disappeared. If IJernalillo coun
ty would profit by Socorro coun
ty's experience, the best thing
for the (íood (lovernment League
to do is to get possession of the
books lirsfand advertise its pur
Ilr.KMKNK (1. Baca, 'the present
treasurer and ex-officio collector
of Socorro county, has enterca
heroically upon a difficult and
delicate task. He has under
taken to find out who the delin
quent tax-payers are, to collect
delinquen taxes as far as possi
ble, and to put the tax-rolls into
an accurate and intelligible con
dition. The task is a difficult
one because the books of Mr
Iiaca's predecessor were either
not accurately kept or are mys
terious y missing. The task is
a delicate one because extreme
care has to be exercised to avoid
inflicting hardship upon some
tax-payers who have paid their
taxes have not been credited
therefor and have lost their
receipts. Mr. Daca deserves and
will receive the Hearty sympa
thy and support of all citizens
who are in favor of an honest ad
ministration of the county's
The constitution recognizes
the importance of a full senate,
for it provides that the govern
ors of the states shall fill '-acan-
cics by appointment when the
legislatures arc not in session.
The senate has decided that this
does not give to the governor the
right to appoint when the legis
lature has failed to elect, and in
accordance with this view it has
within a few years refused to
seat senators from Montana,
Pennsylvania, Washington and
Wyoming, lint the fact that a
state may thus voluntarily de
prive itself of representation does
not lessen the national interest
in the matter.
The nation is concerned in the
honesty of election to congress as
well as in the fact of election.
The national will may fail of ex
pression because of fraud at the
polls through which members of
the party in the minority may
receive the certificate of election.
Such failure is graver than that
caused by factional quarrels in
the majority party, because it in
volves deliberate and premedi
tated violation of the most sa
cred principle of representative

Cured by One Mottle or I'liamhorlaiiiN
"When I had an attack of grip
last winter (the second one) I
actually cured myself with one
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy," says Frank W. Perry,
editor of the Knterprise, Shorts-
ville, N. Y. "This is the honest
truth. I at times kept from
coughing mvself to pieces by
taking a teaspoonful of this rem
edy, and when the coughing
spell would come on at night I
would take a dose and it seemed
that in the briefest interval the
cough would pass off and I would
go to sleep perfectly free from
cough and its accompanying
pains. To say that the remedy
acted as a most agreeable surprise
is putting it mildly. I had no
idea that it would or could knock
out the grip, simply because I
had never tried it for such a pur
pose, but it did, and it seemed
with the second attack of cough
ing the remedy caused it to not
onlj be of less duration, but the
pains were far less severe, and I
had not used the contents of one
bottle before Mr. Grip hail bid
me adieu." Foi sale by A. E
