An Open letter The following is an open letter pub. lished in the Solano Herald: Solano N. M. July 22 '08. Editor Herald, Dear sir: By chance I note in a pa per I picked up, a proof notice which leads ine to write you this letter. I wish you would publish it not only as a precaution in this particular case but as a warning to all who try to obtain land unjustly. We ask when a homestead entryman who intends to make final proof ad vertises his notice in a paper that does not cover the community in wnich the land lies and offers to make proof be fore a Commissoner a hundred miles from where lays dont it look as some thing was wrong? The fact is that something is wrong, in this case if we may judge by what we hear from those of our residents who have been here long enough to know. According to our informants, any person contesting this place could win it and for a proof of this kind to be allowed totake place without protest would not be fair to your neighbor, much less to the gov errnnfn'j or yourself. We are .speak ing with reference to the mile strip of land cornering a quarter north of rail road crossing at Solano, known as theS12 SW 1-4 and S 1-2 SE 1-4 Sec. 22, Township 19 N. Range 27 L. What do you think about it my friend? .. . . Yours truly, . A Citizen. We aereé with vou that if it is the case in this, particular or any pther, for that matter, that protest snoum -oe made. ' '-' It is well however to know or be a- ble to prove all assertions. ' ,.' Editor. ... '. ANSWER TO ABOVE 0PFN LETTER Published In The Solano Herald, July ' 25th, Vol'. 1, No. 17. The citizen who wrote the open let ter had bettor man and not a coward. and sigufíiis name. We would then jtCkable to give mm a proper an swer. In the firstplac3 the reason thatthe not ice was not published in the Sola no HeraW, is that we did not consider it a legal paper in which to publish final proof notices, as the paper is a new one established at Solano, exist ing only seventeen weeks with the last issue, the law provides tr.at a paper be published at least six months, at least thai is the requirements of the Register and Receiver of the local land offices, this has no general circulation of any kind, we would venture safely to say it has not got 100 paid up bona fide subscribers, it misrepresents it self in everv respect, like it does all other matters prctaining to Solano. The paper in which we have published this notice, is an official orgjm of the County of Mora, published in the Countv of Mora for five ' years, so the proper and legal course was taken Now as to proving up regally on this claim referred to, I wish to say that the author of the article had bet ter be careful, he might be one of those parties he is talking about, there are a cood many people in Solano who are holding claims outside that are not complying with the letter of the law. ''Betttir not throw stones when you live If W ! vein' -a glass house yourself." author of the aforesaid articl will Hwv.USP his name we will give him a more respectable answer. . Citizen, ' " " J. B. Garcia. An Enjoyable Outing One of the merriest crowds of pic nicers who have ever embarked for pleasure, set out early Sunday morn ing and found what they had been seeking at the Roy Orchard and Ranch. The jolly party spent the day on the watersof the laké, taking pictures and eating of a bountiful picnic and camp dinner, which consisted of all the good eatables and dainties to be obtained. In the afternoon the old Indian cave was explored, once the camping ground and abode of a tribe of the Sioux. From this place many souvenirs of Indian curios were obtained. Late in the afternoon the crowd returned tired but well pleased with their days out ing. Those who composed the merry party were: Mr. H. Goodman and Max Karlsruher and families, Misses Josephine' Roy, Grace Romine and Eugenia Roy ,Mesdames Roy and Ad ler, Messers E. J. H. Roy, Dr. Evans Roy Wood and Richard Phalon. Larrazola Coming I have received advise from the Ter ritorial Democratic Central Commit tee, that the Hon. .0. A. Larazola will speak at Roy on the 25th day of August at8:.'i01 M. intheBushkeviiz Hall, and at 9;:iOA. M. of August 26th he will speak at Solano. Everv one is cordially invited to attend and hear what he has to say This invitation is extended to ail, re gardless of party, as I want the citi zens of Roy to show the visitors of both parties the hospitality, of the Roy people and I would suggest to every Democrat or Republican to show the coming Republican De'.egiks the same courtesy as shown to the Hon. A. Larazola. J. Floersheim Ter. Com.

TAFT'S SPEECH Republican Nominee Delivers Brilliant Address Of Acceptance William Howard Taft delivered his speech of acceptance of nomination at Cincinnati, Ohio July 28. Every charge made by the democrats was answered and the reforms advocated by Bryan, were discussed and exposed in detail. Mr. Taft was giv-n a great ovation by loyal supporters. He advocated poli cies inaugurated by Roosevelt and told of the necessity of divising some means of permantly securing the pro gress already made. ''The chief func tion of the next administration is to cinch what has been done" Said Mr. Taft. The difference between Republican Democratic policies and platforms, and the destructive policy of the Dem ocratic platform were laid bare. "The Republican Doctrine." said Mr. Taft, is that a tariff shall be imposed on all imported products whether of the fae tory, mine or farm.sutticiently great to equal the difference between the cost of production abroad and at home and that this difference should include the difference between the high wages paid in this country and the wages paid abroad. A system of protection thus adopted and put in force has led to theestablishment of arate of wages here which has greatly enchancei the Standard tpf living of , the. laboring man." . Mr. Taft went further and spoke up on the Rights of Labor, Dangerous at.acts of Courts, Currency System, Army and Navy, Porto Rico, Cuba, Philippines, Concervation of National Resourses and closed his brilliant ad- dress by telling of the differences- of the two parties; "Prosperity with Re publican success; Business disaster with Democratic victory." He Understood. A teacher of the primary class in a certain Sunday school had for her hobby "the prevention of cruelty to animals," and always endeavored to gain a point along the line, no matter what the lesson was about. One Sunday to make the illustration more vivid, she drew a picture of a worm upon the blackboard with the following inscription above it: "This is a worm do not step on it" "Now Willie," said she "do you" fully understand what I have been telling you about our illustration on the board? ' Yes'm said Willie. "Well" sa:d Mrs B., "to show the class that you understand, you may take the pointer and read the inscrip tion the above picture." Willie took the pointer and proced ed to read: "This is a warm dough nutstep on it.
