Guadalupe Garcia, , Justice of the Peace and Health OiHcer. Who's Who In New Grant County Goes Instructed For Andrews. Chaves And San Juan Are Friendly To Him. The Grant County Republicans held their convention August 3rd and elect ed six delegates to represent Grant county at Santa Fe, August 18th. The six delegates were instructed to vote for the renomination of Delegate W. tl. Andrews. Chaves and San Juan counties also held their conventions and while their delegates are to go uninstructed, the majority of them favor the renomina tion of W. H. Andrews. Mora county held her convention yesterday and we feel confident and ardentlv hope she will stand by her sister counties and send delegates favorable to Andrews, HON. W. H. ANDREWS. Never bef ore has New Mexico enjoy ed the position and high standing at the National Cap.tal as he dois today. No Delegate of New Mexico ever commanded the respect of powerful political men as does Hon. W. H. An drews. His associates and boiler gues are powerful men in the senate, such as Senator Penrose of Penn. who is now a leader in Taft's Campaign. What explanation can we give for New Mexico faring better than any other Congressional District? Did she ever before receive a $.50,000 appropia tian for irrigation purposes, which is almost double her share. Was there ever before such efforts made for fur thering the interests of the Vdterans of the Indian, Civil aud Spanish wars? Was there ever before such liberal appropriations for public build ings as has been since Delegate W. H. Andrews has been at the helm? What New Mexico has long wanted is statehood and with Mr. Andrews representing her, she will get statehood in a very short time. Although Mr. Andrews has two worthy opponents, shall we trade a known quality for the unknown? Let us stand by our present delegate who has done so much for the uplift ing of New Mexico and who has the strength in Congress to do so much more, and let us work for the renomi nation of Mr. Andrews and help him to complete the great work which he has commenced.
