The following resolutions were
Resolved, That we, the dele
gates to the Republican county
nominating convention, hereby
affirm our allegiance to the party
oi progress anu "protection, and
I pledge our undivided support to
the standard-bearer giyen us by
the Republican territorial con
vention a man representing the
advanced principles of our party,
and whose record is beyond re
proach, Bernard S. Rodey, a man
who promises if elected to work
faithfully to reduce the outra
geous dimensions of the Gila
forest reserve, which, now
covers over twenty townships of
mining and agricultural land
which is devoid of timber and
occupied by home-seekers and
tax-payers for twenty years past
Whereas, This county has
been despoiled by the creation of
this forest reserve, whereby 42
townships have "reverted back to
the government, driving away
500 settlers who paid taxes there
in, thus cutting off the legitimate,
revenue of county and territory,
Whereas, Tke county of Socor
ro has for years, and is now,
suffering1 from having its grass
devoured by herds from other
portions of the territory, and the
owners pay no taxes in this coun
ty, the tendency of which is to
drive out the resident stock
growers, and impoverish the
county revenues; therefore be it
Resolved, That the candidates
that accept the nomination for
the territorial legislature shall,
and are hereby pledged to intro
duce and work for the passage of
a law that shall make stock
growers pay taxes in the county
where their herds graze. Be it
Resolved, That candidates
accepting the nomination as
county commissioners are hereby
pledged to economise in the
management of the county
finances, due supervision of all
county officers, so that the proper
books shall be kept, including
their own, and that the interests
of the county shall be subserved.
We further promise that each
of us shall, upon return to our
own precincts, work for the elec
tion of the ticket nominated here
The committee on permanent
organization and order of busi
ness recommended the following
permanent officers, viz: Chair
man, Estevan Baca; Secretary, II.
H. Howard; Interpreters, N. P.
Eaton and E. S. Stapleton. The
committee also recommended that
nominations be made in the fol
lowing order: Senator, repre
sentative, sheriff, treasurer and
collector, school superintendent,
probate judge, probate clerk, as
sessor, commissioner of the first
district, commissioner of the sec
ond district, commissioner of the
third district, surveyor, coroner.
The. report of the committee was
The next order of business was
the formal nomination of the
county ticket that had been
agreed upon in caucus. O f course
there were no contests, all differ
ence's having been. satisfactorily
adjusted, and every candidate on
the ticket was nominated by ac
clamation. This method of pro
ceedure is the most satisfactory,
as it keeps family quarrels, if
there are any, from the public
gaze. Fortunately there were no
serious differences in this case
even in caucus, so that the en
thusiasm with which each nom
ination was received was real
and unqualified. The ticket will
be found in the appropriate col
umn of The Chieftain.
The appointment of members
of the county central committee
resulted as follows:
Following the nomination of
the ticket, members of the county
central committee for the ensu
ing year were chosen from the
various precinots as follows: 1.
Estevan Baca, 2. Miguel Baca,
3. Clemente Chavez, 4. Anselmo
Ortega, 5. Gregorio Baca, 7,
Eduardo Jaramillo, 8. Emiliano
