This Popular Institution Has Stong
Friends Among the Leading
Journals of the Territory.

FOR A. T. S. V. AND A. & i. RAILROADS.-0-
The New Mexico School of
Mines, one of the territory's most
useful and thriving institutions,
has recently been subjected to
criticism from a certain source.
The many friends of the School
in all parts of the territory will
be pleased at the promptness
with which two of the leading
and most influential dailies of the
territory overwhelm all criticism
with their generous words of ap
preciation and praise of the work
done at the School.
The Santa Fe New Mexican of
Thursday spoke editorially as
"A few days ago an attack on
the management of the New
Mexico School of Mines at Socor
ro appeared in the El Paso News
in the shape of an interview and
this was reproduced in the Albu
querque Journal. Investigation
of the charges made therein
shows them to be absolutely
groundless. It is stated in the
interview that there were only six
of the students enrolled who are
residents of New Mexico. An
examination of the school cata
logue of 1903 shows that there
was an enrollment of 10.1 students
for the scholastic year just closed
of whom all but ' fourteen were
either natives or residents of the
Territory. Students from out
side the Territory pay a tuition
fee of $50 per semester, while
bona fide residents of New Mexico
are charged only $10 per term.
It is charged that unjust
discrimination is practised by the
faculty against native born
students of Spanish and Mexican
descent. This is certainly not
based upon facts. For instance,
the Spanish language is taught
at the school to a large and
constantly rowi n- class of
students and the board of regents
and the faculty insist that
Spanish be made an important
branch of the educational system
in vogue there, as it is ' fully
realized that to mining engineers,
especially, a thorough knowledge
of the Spanish language will
prove of great benefit, "as the
mining industry in the Spanish
American Republics to the south
is constantly growing and will,
of very necessity, demand the
services of many mining engineers
from this country from now on.
"The School of Mines since its
establishment has done great
good and is preparing to be of
still more benefit in the future.
This is susceptible of the clearest
proof and beyond successful
contradiction. The records of
the school and its annual cáta
lo gues during the past twelve
years make this absolutely plain
and patent to any one who will
take the trouble and the time to
investigate. The School of Mines
is an educational institution of
which the people of this Terri
tory ought to be and are justly
The Albuquerque Citizen of a
few days ago reproduced an
article from last week's Chieftain
and commented as follows:
"The atove from the Socorro
Chieftain proves the recent at
t ick of Elfego Baca, formerly of
Socorro, but now attempting to
practice law in El Paso, on the
School of Mines false in every
particular. Baca has a personal
grievance, as his recent interview
published in the El Paso News
and reproduced in several terri
torial exchanges would indicate,
against President Keyes and
other members of the faculty,
and he took occasion to air him
self and at the same time make
some false statements about the
school in the columns of the
newspapers. Baca is a mischief
maker, as his record in the courts on
previous occasions and especial
ly before Judge Pope, who had to
let him know in open court that
he (Baca) could not run his
(Pope's) court, and his interview
about the School of Mines will be
thoroughly understood as coming
It is
from a man who would
tear down than build tir
amusing to learn that Baca, whr
i ; .-. . i i i
..-. in ji i ,isd, assumes to boss
the next legislature, before the
members thereof are elected, and
intends to go to Santa IV and
see that the School of Mines is
abolished by the legislature.
Judge Baca," as some have dub
bed him, will find that task
very hard one."
