Territory will inpidly march on tho road to prog

tly removed and hereafter our own resources v ill be
sufficient to enable us to grapple successlully with
whatever difficulties may arise in our career.
Iu years past the general government has become
the debtor of the citizens of New Mexico In the
amount of millions of dollars for losses sustained
from Indian depredations. These Urge amounts
of money are justly due our citizens and many of
them should have been paid long since, But hav
lag beeu witheld tho active business of I In Territo
has been crippled for the want of the capital tu
which it is I )f -i ii it ily entitle 1, an t o ijwhich it is
wrongfully deprived by tile slow action of tho Gov-
amount. One of thj candidates has made th.ise
claims the subject of his attention for a long series
of years, and is perfectly familiar with their n irits.
Ilo is also wall ucqu i nted with tlieprneti :al w ir

Id this department of a Delegato . business; The
other candidate is wholly Inexperienced In all mat
ters pertaining to these affairs. He has never oc
onpied positions that con Id enable him to familiar
lie himself with thoia, even if he were endowed
by nature with thsramtil capacity requinte so to
do. Every voter, therefore, who wishes these
claims to be paid and the money to bo put in cir

wealth and business of the Territory will cast his
suffrage for
Tha Indians continua to devastate the country
and murder our people. Weekly have wo reports
of their deproilati ins, in which are committed all
the outrages included in the catalogue of crimes
For succor and protection from these savage cruel
ties we look to the general Government. It has
bargained to give us adequate protection, und if
our condition is properly presented it will do so.
One of the can lid ites lor Dalogate Is possessed
of all tho qualifications necessary to enable him to
m ike out our case and h ive our rights awar
ded us. He Is a reudy debator, eloquent udvo-
cate and skillful manager In American polities.
He is personally acquainted with the President
members of the cabinet and many of the Senutors
and Representatives in Congress. The other
candidate is utterly disqualified for the discharge
of these duties because of his Inability to speak
the English language, which alone Is used In
Washington City. Were he to go to the Federal
Capital as our Delegate he would be there an
ntlre stranger to men, manners, language end
tistoms. At every step he would take he would
meet with impediments that he could not over
come. All his communications would have to be
made thronjh the medium of an Interpreter.
Whilst in his seat in Congress ho would not un
derstand one word that might be said and tha
enemies of the Territory could inflict upon us in
his very presence injuries of the m st serious na -
lare without his being cognisant of the fact Ears
woald he have, but oould not hear. His tingue
would bo as useless to him as if ho were a mute.
He, therefore, who would huve our Territory pro
tected from the ravages of tha Indians an I troops
provided for their subjection will vote for tha elec
tion of
Many other interests are to be cared for. The
capital building is incomplete. An appropriation
ihould be made for it, which would give labor and
good wages to great numbers of our people
Military roads ought to be constructed In tho
Territory which would not only faci ltate tho
movements of troops and enhance the value of
prope'ty bat would also put larga amounts of
money in circulation in our midst. For the rea
sons above recited avery body who wishes such
desirable object to be accomplished will put bis
shoulder to the wheal and do all he cao to secure

Look to the recent past aud see if what has
been said in referenoe to the efficiency of the ser
vices of Judge Watts in the city of Washington
is not true. Never, perhaps, since the formation
of the Territorial government has any one man
had so much iufiuence with an administration as
he has hud with that of President Lincoln. That
influence too his been exerted for the benufit of
the whole Territory and not, as is customary In
such cases, for the promotion of partisan friends
and the advancement of party Interests. A man
who has proved liim-elf thus efficient and thus
impartial is certainly worthy of the confidence of
the good people of Now Mexico. They can rely
upon it that his whole energies will be directed to
the fuithful prosecution of their business In the
Federal capital and if they will only commission
him us their d ily elected Representative bis power
to do good in the.r behalf will bo increased ten
f ld more than it has been in the past whilst he
was actio,, for them merely iu the capacity of a
prívalo citii n.
Pity feelings of private vinJIctivenesi have
produced on the part of some smalt minded men
an active, though limited opposition to tho Judgo.
It is p-iifylugtoknowthit this opposition finds
but small countenance union; the messes of the
pouple. who have no faith in the Integrity of those
who huve been instrumental in placing Mr. Archa
lela before them as a candidate. They understand
perfectly well that Archuleta was not made a can
didate from patriotic motives, or with a view to
i lie promotion of any public interest. Hence the
unfounded reports that are originated and put in
circulation with tho purpose of securing him votes
and to damage the prospects of Judía Watts
have but a limited cITict. No sensible man should
d i moro th in trace them to ihoir source, to satisfy
himself of Hie amount of impudence and credit
that should bo attached to them. Put forth for
the sole purpose of inducing tho people to vote in
direct opposition to theirowa iuturests, they shuull
be received with souru and not eveu bs honored
with an investigation.
