should fall for It. Maybe lie, like
Ferirusson, thinks the main object of
the administration Is to gal as "many
democrats as possible In ofllce, as soon
Tnn January number of the Postal
Cuide announces that the postofllce
over in Quay county which has been
known bv the name of Looney has
had Its name changed, and hereafter
will be known as Wood row. Have
you any comments to make?
Tn first man in the state to get
Into action for the coming campaign
Is Hugh II. Williams, the retlrli.g
member of the corporation com mis
slon, who announces that he is a can
didate for the same position before
the republican convention. Mr. Wll
Hams has made a valuable member of
the commission. His long experience
as a railroader had qualified him for
the position, and lie has done much
good work for the people of the state.
The Liberal would be glad vo see
him nominated and elected.
The sufTragottes have been to con
gress asking that a permanent stand
ing committee on women suffrage be
appointed. The majority of the com
mittee on rules, which consists of all
the democrats on the committee, took
the matter up, and decided that such
a committee was nob necessary, and
now the suffragettes are telling what
they think of the democrats.
At last has been discovered a com
munity that is not afraid of President
Moyer, of the Western Federation of
Miners. Recently he was put on a
train In northern Michigan, and ad
vised not to come back. He came
back to continue the strike in the
copper camp, and last week the grand
jury Indicted hi in and many of his
comrades for conspiracy. He got out
of the -state before he . was arrested,
and now thinks the advice given him
when he was put on the train was
good, and he will have to be extradlb
ed to get him back In Michigan. The
authorities are going after htm.

The Register and Receiver of the
land olllce at Las Cruces, New Mex
ico, have recently received a letter
from the Department of the Interior
regarding dilTlcultles settlers on un
surveyed lands along the Mexican
boundary are having due to the trou
ble in Mexico. The law provides that
unsurveyed land can only be held by
continued settlement upon It. In
many cases such settlement Is unsafe
along the border. In this connection
the Department writes: "It Is safe
to say that where settlers upon lands
along the International boundary
may now or hereafter be forced to
absent themselves from their claims
by reasons of conditions arising from
the war In Mexico, due consideration
would be given to causes of such ab
sences when the entrymen submit
proof, or In case of Intervening ad
verse claims with a view to the equi
table adjustment of the rights of all
parlies. All such settlers, however,
should keep In touch with the U. S.
land ofllce at Las Cruces, In order that
they may be informed when the plats,
of survey are filed, and upon the fil
Ing of such plats, should promptly
make entry for the lands claimed
under their settlements. In so far as
their Improvements are concerned,
however, such settlers will leave the
land at their own risk, as the Land
Department is without authority to
place a guard over the same, or to re
compense the settler for the value of
such Improvements should they be
removed or destroyed."
When Sheriff McUrath bought his
first automobile a baby Buick, some
years ago he found it a hard road be
tween Lordsburg and Silver City, on
the old traveled route by way of Gold
Hill. The road was hard to nego
tiate, and very rough. The rough
places racked the car, and" he, not
knowing how good a car he had, was
afraid It would rack to pieces. He
went out on voyages of discovery, and
finally found the road by the way of
Separ, Cow Springs and Whitewater,
and pronounced it much better than
the old road, and since then has been
traveling It exclusively, as has every
one else, on his recommendation. A
week or so ago he was over In his new
six cylender, powerful Buick. Ongo
ing back he concluded to do some
more discovering and started north,
going to the west of Gold Hill, and
going into the mountains on the old
Wood canyon road, passing Charlie
Miley's old place, and got to the top
of the divide in less than an hour.
He figured on getting to Silver City
n Jess than three hours, but he ran
into the snow and the only thing he
had to dig snow with was a broken
spring that he had been using for a
tire iron, and It was after night be
fore he got to Silver City, but he
found it was a good road, if it had
not been for the snow, and the snow
never lasts long In the Burros. Last
week lie concluded to have some work
clone on the road, and so came over
with a bunch of prisoners In his car,
showed them the road, and, told them
what ought to be done. There was
no snow In the road, and they made
good time, excepting that they stop
ped several' times, to show the men
what to do. Saturday morning he
started from here with them to work
on the road. The road crosses the
valley on the old grade, and goes into
Silver City on the Leopold road. The
sheriff made the following log of the
road when he came over: To Oak
Grove 11.5 miles; to Morton, White
Signal, 13.5 miles; to Curetons X
ranch, 20 miles; to top of the divide,
Ü9 5 miles, to Lordsburg 47.5 miles,
which he made In three hours and
fifteen minutes. He says the trip
u.ay be made either way In less than
three hours. Several times he had to
go into the Intermediate speed, but
never In the low. This Is a saving of
24.5 miles over the Cow Springs route,
and more than an hour of time, and a
better road for traveling.

The New Mexico postmasters who
have been Inspected by Inspector
Frank T. Frawley recently, are on
tenter hooks, since the experience of
the Lordsburg and Silver City post
masters became public. All that the
Liberal has heard from claim that
he found nothing serious to crltci.se
In their offices, and are wondering If
they are booked for the axe. They
may rest assured that ttiey will get
tbe axe In due course of time. Con
gressman Fergusson got the right
kind of a pull on the division of post
master's appointment, and Frawley
was put on the road to get certain
postmaster's scalps, and, In fact to
break President's Wilson's promise
that all postmasters at presidential
offices should hold out their' term. Of
course Congressman Fergusson does
not care anything about the pres
ident's promise, and an lospector has
got todo what he Is told todo.no
matter whether he makes one higher
up a liar or not. Of course the pres
ident knows nothing about it. The
only surprising thing Is that First
