TaraaMonlht it0 Si Month! 1 Ti OosTaar 109 Subscription AlwavsPnvahlalB Adranos, The democratic state convention to nominate a candidate for congress and a member of tlie corporation com rulsnlon will be held la Albuquerque on August nth. Sunday Is flag day and will be widely celebrated. One hundred and thirty-seven years ago, on the 14th of June Congress passed a resolution describing and adopting the flag. The sUte treasurer will sell the half million of road bonds tomorrow. There Is a question as to tlie law pro viding for their Issue, and a case has been made up to the supreme court, which will decide the matter. Dona Ana county Is so well pleased with what has been accomplished lo road building In that county that a new Issue of bonds, to the amount of 50,000, to complete the roads, has been proposed. It will be voted on tomorrow. The Liberal has discovered what the trouble Is regarding the boundary lines of the Lordsburg school district. There Is no district map in the court house. When C. E. Johnson was coun ty surveyor and Judge Neblet was superintendent of schools Johnson surveyed each district In the county, established the corners and made a map. The first map made had the south boundary of the Lordsburg dis trict eighteen miles too far north. The Liberal drew the attention of the surveyor and superintendent to this error, and after a great deal of hunting of the county records the resolution changing this line was dis covered and Mr. Johnson corrected his map accordingly. The Liberal secured a blue print of this map, which It has In Its o dice. It seems the original map, which the county paid for, both the surveying and the map making, has disappeared from the courthouse. A great set of coun ty officers Grant county has. if such a valuable and Important map can dis appear. There is no telling what other records are missing. The coun ty ought to adopt some system of In dexing Its maps, and when a man goes out of office the maps and other records should be checked by the In dex, and If any Is missing the outgo ing officer should be held on his bond for its production. Tns Rio Grande Republican print ed an editorial last week based on the statement that the democratic party would obtain the confidence of the people by the deeds It wrought, not by the promises It made, which It ap proved to the extent of a third of a column, and then followed It by by half a column or more of criticism of the LriiKUAL for telling the Btory of Brown of the School of Mines, Ash of the custom' service, and of a mis sent letter, and Intimating that be cause the editor of the Liberal had served as postmaster, and was let out he was thus debarred from telling anything about the democratic party. For a good many years the Libkbal has been In the habit of telling of mismanagement in public affairs, and likewise of especially good manage ment. It has made no difference whether the story was regarding a re publican or a democrat, as long as It was a good story. Thus the Ash story told how the civil service rules, which the democratic party had pro mised to observe, were being dis regarded. It was an example of dem ocratlc deeds, compared with demo cratic promises. No criticism was made of the democratic party, none was needed. Tlie fasts spoke for themselves. As regards the Brown resignation from the board of the School of Mines. This was Important state news, of Interest to every one Interested In our educational Insti tutions. Whether Brown did the right thing or not the Libkbal never pretended to say, but the fact that be had done romethlng, and the rea son for his doing so was of Interest. As regards the missing letter, the former postmaster here had been cussed so many times because of al leged missing letters, which he was not responsible for, that be could not resist the temptation to tell that tinder the new administration a sim ilar thing had happened. If all the papers of New Mexico would make a practise of telling the story when any thing happened of Interest, as re gírela publto affairs, simply tell the I story ana let the public draw it own conclusions the people would have a much better understanding of the do ings of our public officers, but there are many newspaper men In the state who cannot do this. They can tell good thing regarding officers, who happen to be members of their own political party, but when It comes to telling a story where the facts are not complimentary to their party members, they fall down. Some years ago the Liberal got two good stories of actual facts regarding an office holder In our county seat, and pub lished them both In the same issue One showed he had done well, the other showed he had not used good ludgement. A Silver City editor, after reading that Issue of the Lib bal said: "lias Kedzte gone craty? He boosts and bastes the same man In the same Issue of his paper. What does he mean'" The benighted ed itor could not appreciate that one ac tion of a man could be approved and other disapproved. In his estimation a man must be wholly good or wholly bad. The county commissioners at their meeting last week heard many tsx payers tell how little property they really had, and made a few changes In assessments. The commissioners formed two new voting precincts In the southern part of the county, that of Playas, which was formed from Hachlta and Animas, and Is about 18x30 miles In size, Cloverdale, which has the same boundaries as the Clo verdale school district. The El Taso & Southwestern rail road has drilled a new well on the station grounds at Rodeo, which was recently tested and produced 159 gal lons a minute with a draw down of only ten feet, which would Indicate that there may be a pumping prop osition for farming. Most of the dry farmers down in that section have come to the conclusion that dry farm ing Is not a success there as In several seasons not enough rain has fallen to make a crop. Valley View News. Johnle Johnson has a position In the power house at the 85. T. A. Kerr has returned home from a business trip up near Duncan. John Ilaydon visited with his bro ther George, the first of the week. Vernon Wright was back on the valley a few days, looking after bus! ness. Airs, viola Robertson has been on the sick list but Is reported well again. George Cadman and Miss Myrtle Johnson were Steins visitors last Sunday. Little miss Aurelia sellaras was on the sick list a few days, but is ready for her play again. Mrs. W. H.

Steins has been off the map lately, so far as teleponlc conectlon Is con cerened. There seems to be quite a little bit of trouble with this line Not pleasant for the patrons sure.
