Juan Navarro aud the Republican ticket is not only a vote for general welfare of the entire new State, but it is a Vote for our local interests as well. We have at heart a greater ambition, and that is for a Great er and Grander ROY and we can obtain that by electing the Re publican ticket. Hon. Holm O. Cursuni together with Juan Na varro, will carry out the pledge that was made the Roy people through its representatives in the last Territorial Legislature and the Constitutional Convention. Hon. Juau Navarro is a man of word, he will keep his word as he has heretofore. He was against us because he promised the west ern end of the county to oppose "any cutting of Mora county into a i-evv county with Roy as the coun ty seat. Today he is free from such pledges and is ready to give us what we want, knowing that wa rp now better nreraredv to sustain and manage a first class and up-todate county, So let us all work to accomplish what we have been after for three ye;irs by casting our vote for those who will represent our interests and that can only be obtained from the Republican Party.

THE OLu 'D41L AND THE GOOD ' In the good old days of the Democratic plunderbund and the Thornton administration, when the same old gang of Democratic bosses who are now in the party saddle, ran New Mexico with a high hand, they never heard of a good road. In less than four years, the Democratic administration had a deficit of over $127,0iO and an empty treasury. No money for road. But under Re publican regime Instead of a deficit there was on September 31, 1911,. more than $300,000 in the treasury and no deficit and every department of the government running within Its income. And IN ADDITION OVER $137,000 WAS EXPENDED ON GOOD ROADS IN NEW MEXICO. When you wanted to go anywhere in the good old days of the last Demo cratic administration in New Mexico, you took the nearest "trail" and fol lowed it as tar as you could. It was then all over New Mexico, as it is today cn the great cattle ranches of the foreign cattle barons, managed by W. C. McDonald. Good roads, you know, means that sooner or later the home steader will com along, that sooner or later he will take up the land, that sooner or later he will be hauling produce to market, that sooner or later the long-horn and the cattle barons will have to move, that sooner or. later the cpuntry will be settled up with happy homes, rich acres, new people. The Democratic bosses and the foreign cattle barons know that; they are not making any promises on good roads. But under the Republican regime in this Territory!" there have been constructed abojit 500 miles of good roads, that are endurlng'-monumentg to the Republican party and the pathway for the set tler and homesteader. , Down in the Democratic county of Grant, the first work was started for the roads were built where needod and politics did not figure in their build ins. The road from Silver City to Mogollón' speaks for itself. It is a silent testimonial' to the Republican party in New' Mexico. Ask the freighter, the miner, the mail carrier, the traveler of Silver City and of Mogollón and the mining camps a- ly back from the! railroads.' .'" ' Ninety miles of road across the plains from Roswcll to Carri.ozo that has meant thousands of dollars to those towns, was taken up' and completed by the territorial road commission, composed of the Republican governor, the territorial engineer and the commissioner of public lands. Once there was a trail out of Deming six or seven miles north across impassallo .sands. Today, under the Republican Good Roads propaganda, there is a speedway, where the old trail used to run. it is used to take from three days to a week for a traveler to reach Albuquerque from Santa Fe. Automobiles now make the trip In a few hours. Why? I'.ecaiuse under the present regime, the finest piece of road engineering work in the bouthwest was done on that stretch of 64 miles, cutting the grade, shortening the mileage and making one of the finest pieces of thoroughfare in New Mexico. This work cost but $5,000. . The road was built in less than a year, it was built so cheaply that ex perts who have examined it could not at first believe that' it had been done for such a small sum.- It was built under the Republican party. It went over La Bajada hi.l a name that tells Its own story. The grade was cut from the dangerous one of 35 per cent to 7.8 per cent. Thirty-five miles east of Carlsbad, there used to be a stretch of sand that was impassable. Today freighters go twenty miles out pf their way to cross those sands because the territorial roads commission built a road over those sands that is the pride of that section of New Mexico. The road opens up the trail to the eastern plains country for 70 miles. Travel over it Increased 400 per cent In two months. " . Search the records of the last Democratic administration, when the Demo cratic bosses looted New Mexico; look for any report in Thornton's state ments to Washington, about good roads. You won't find any. He discussed the health and welfare of the Indiana of which the Democratic party has Improved to any noticeable extent. Ask Dona Ana county about ber road out of Las' Cruces. Then there Is the bcenic highway, the greatest road building ever dreamed of in New Mexico. It will soon extend from one line of the new state to the other. Over in Quay county from Clovis to portales (work soon to start), Alamogordo to'jOfaadcroft, Deming South road, Santa F'e-San Juan road, and a dozen other' j$uies, declared by competent surveys to be feasible and which will be bullías j&as the work AND THIS WOR)y,'HStlTS t'gQM PUBLICAN LEGISLAT.C fllA AND WISELY AND HONESTLY' BY' A REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION. THE LAW WAS ENACTED IN 1909 BY A LEGISLATURE DENOUNCED BY THE DEMOCRATIC BOSSES AND THEIR NEWSPAPER ORGANS, VILIFIED AND ABUSED. . . MR. VOTER, DO TOU WANT OTHER THORNTON ADMINISTRATION AND ANOTHER EMPTY TREAS URY WITH A DEFICIT OF $127,000? THE REPUBLICAN PARTY STANDS ON ITS RECORD. ROADS whoever he may be. Ask the citizens and the climate of New Mexico, neither can be efficiently done. A LAW ENACTED BY A RE- Pt'r IN FORCE NON-POLITICALLY, ' GOOD ROADS OR DO YOU WANT AN OH THAT HOPE LESS CAUSE The County Democrat Rally which was billed for Roy on the evening of Nov. . 1st, was a total lizzie from every stand point and a disappointment to the dance pleasure seeking young people of this community. The meeting started off with the selection of the only remain standpatter Democrat, Mr. Jacob Floersheim as Chairman. There was about a dozen other half soul ed democrats, socialists and pro gressive republicans, half of whom were even non residents of the county, for that reason the Secretary, Johnson and-the In terpreter, Martinez, from Union County, were askpd to fill the f other official positions pivbeha.lt of the hopeless cause of Democ racy of the Roy Precinct. About thirty-five of the Grand Old Party were also present, who per- chance came in from the country expecting to attend the Republi can Rally which "was scheduled for the sameeveningand unkown to them was posponed for a later day, remaiied to take in the ex pected democratic dance .which was promised by the democrats, but to every ones surprise failed to materialize. In one hour the speaking was all over with, the Chairman promising a dance if the democrats won out, so at 9 o' clock p. m. the crowd dispersed. J. E. Russel, the candidate for County School Superintendent, spoke about the qualifications of the candidates on the democratic ticket and the Hon. Rafael Ro mero spoke about Juan Navarro, Madrid and Tito Melendez and finally finished with a brief s peach on the Blue Ballot voting. Watch the "Mary Jane" (Albuquerque Morning Journal) for a write-up about that rousing democratic rally at Roy, which actually was a farce and the truth is given in this article as seen by a represen tative of the Spanish-American. The local head of Democracy, Mr. J'.'Floersheim was busy a few days ago distributing a Spanish Edition of the Los Angeles Ex aminer. Its too bad that New Mexico Democrats need appeal to that apostle of Democracy W. R. Hearst, in their campaign of vili fication in New Mexico. Birds of a feather flock together.
