RAILROADS.-O- Roosevelt and Fairbanks arc the nemes that will head the re publican national ticket this fall. For the second time in its his tory the republican party was unanimous in its choice "of its candidates for the highest honors America has to bestow. At the conclusion of the speech of ex-( íovernor Black of New York naming President Roose velt to succeed himself, for twenty live minutes a pandemonium of enthusiasm possessed the 10,000 people in Chicago's great coli seum. Scarcely less enthusiasm was aroused by the naming of Senator Fairbanks of Indiana for the vice-presidency. The platform adopted reiterates the party's allegiance to the prin ciples of that republican policy under which America has in the last fifty years achieved an un paralleled degree of prosperity and greatness.

Mr. Bursum is a strong man mentally and physically, courageous, nervy, plain spoken and at the same time very much of a diplomat. He is one of the most successful of the younger men in public life in this Territory, and he is a growing man. Putting him on the committee on resolutions was in accordance with the wishes of the Republicans of the Territory and in recognition of his efficient party services as well as of his fitness for it.

NO JOINT STATEHOOD. The National Convention at Chi cago Gave Hon. B. S. Rodoy the Marble Heart. DELEGATE EEODIE POSTS ROOSEVELT. "Keeakitrant Republicans' It What Sew Mexico's Delegate Calls Those Opposed to the Merger. The following notes of the Re publican national convention at Chicago are taken from the St. Louis Globe-Democrat and are of especial interest to New Mexico. However, the intimation that Governor Otero, H. O. Bursum and the majority of New Mexico delegates worked for a joint state hood plank in the national plat form, is erroneous. Says the first dispatch: Delegate Rodey, who represents New Mexico in congress, is here. He and a small coterie of fol lowers have been making an ef fort to have the convention adopt a resolution declaring for joint statehood, lie is meeting' with small encouragement, because the discovery was made soon after he began his labors that Colonel Brodie, a warm personal friend of President Roosevelt, who organized a company of Rough Riders for the Spanish-American war had been in Washington and presented the matter in such a way as to completely checkmate anything that Delegate Rodey may hope to accomplish. There will be no resolution indorsing or favoring joint statehood if the plans of the Republican leaders are carried out. Delegate Rodey made a state ment in which he said that the New Mexicans were somewhat divided on the joint statehood question, but that about half of them, of whom he seemed to be the head, were reconciled to the jointure of the territories of New Mexico and Arizona as one state. He took the position that as it was the settled policy of the Republican party to make but two states from the four terri tories, there should be a plank in the platform to that effect. This course, he believed, would drive recalcitrant Republicans, as he termed them, in both Arizona and New Mexico, who still hope for separate statehood, into the party. Weekly Crop Iliillrtia. Santa Fe, N. M., June 21, 1904. The temperature of the week has averaged somewhat below normal. General local showers have occurred, heaviest still in the northeast quarter, but suf ficient to afford some relief even in the very dry southwestern counties, and a more hopeful tone isexprcssed throughout thcTerri tory. Range is rapidly becoming good in the northeastern districts and improving generally through out the northern counties while in the northwest it is slowly reviving. With another week of light showers stock losses will rapidly dwindle, although losses arc still reported, and some ranch men are driven to great straits to provide food and water for their herds. Shearing has begun in northern counties, and a con siderable quantity of the fleece is being marketed in central portions. Districts favored by. rainfall, or having irrigation water, report a fair prospect, but the acreage is so small compared with the area unseeded, that the results, atbest, will be exceeding ly meagre. Some northern dis tricts continue to plant beans, oats and sorghum and recent showers will no doubt cause rapid germination. Wheat is heading very low, and in parts of the Rio Grande valley farmers are cutting it for hay; corn on irrigated lands is doing well. Alfalfa harvest continues in northern sections with poor to fair yields; upland farms showing large patches which were killed by drouth. No material change is reported in condition of fruits; shipments of peaches are under way from the Pecos valley, and early cher ries are ripening in northern counties. Charles E. Ltnney, Section Director, RAILROADS WITHOUT END. Three loiupaules Ortrnled lo Hulla ftwui San Antonio to Carthage. Others In Fraspeft. Railway building promises tii be a lively industry in Socorre county during the next few months. Three companies have already been incorporated to buili roads from San Antonio to the Carthage coal fields and it is re ported that a prominent citizen of San Antonio has gone east to organize a fourth company. The companies already incorporated are as follows: The San Antonio & Carthage Railway Co. was promoted by Hon. Dau'l H. McMillan and he is the president and treasurer of the company. Hons. H. O. Bur sum. Edw. L. Bartlett, and other prominent citizens of Santa Fe are among the principal stock holders in this company. The capital stock is $140,000. The San Antonio A: Eastern Railway Co. was promoted by C. H. Elmendorf and is said to be backed by KansasCity capitalists. Jas. G. 1' itch is attorney for this company. The capital stock is $240,000. The New Mexico Midland Railway Co. was promoted by Delos A. Chappell of Denver and is said to be backed by the Victor Coal Co. The capital stock of this company is $500,000. H. NL Dougherty is its attorney. These three companies are al ready organized and, in fact, the the New Mexico Midland has al ready begun work by repairing the old Santa Fe grade between San Antonio and Carthage. It is now reported that a prominent citizen of San Antonio has gone east for the purpose of organizing still another company. It will readily be seen that there are likely to be interesting develop ments in the near future. NEW SCHOOL OF MINES CATA10CUL Shows a Gratifying Attendance Laat Year, a Very Large Percentage Being from New Mexico. The new catalogue of the School of Mines just out from the press of the Santa Fe New Mex ican makes a gratifying showing concerning the attendance and the character of the work done last year at that popular and growing institution. The total number of students enrolled at the School last year was 103. Of these, all but 18 were from points in New Mexico. Non-resident technical 6tudents paid tuition and other fees amounting to about $150 each, so that a considerable item of the revenue of the School was from that source. These non-resident students serve well tc advertise the institution outside of New Mexico, and it is reasonable ta presume that a large portion of them will settle in the territory and become very instrumental ia developing its resources. An especially gratifying fea ture of the attendance at the School of Mines is found in the fact that of the total number of students last year approximately one-fourth were Spanish-speaking boys and young men. This fact is gratifying because it amply refutes the statement some times made that the Spanish speakingelement of New Mexico's population ;s not disposed to avail itself of educational op portunities. All in all, the New Mexico School of Mines made a showing last year that will challenge comparison with that of any other educational institution of the territory. There is abundant .reason to believe that next year's showing will be still better. For a Hundred Yearn. For a hundred years or more Witch Hazel has been recognized as a superior remedy, but it remained for E. C. De Witt & Co. of Chicago, to discover how to combine the virtues of Witch Hazel with other antiseptics, in the form of a salve. DcWitt's Witch Hazel Salve is the best, salve in the world for sores, cuts bums, bruises and piles. The high standing of this salve has given rise to counterfeits, and the public is advised to look for the name "DeWitt" on the package, and accept no other. Sold by Socorro Drug and Supply Co.
