THE CHIEF FAIN
PUBLISHED BY SOCORRO COUNTY PU3LISHINQ CO. ' F.. A.wIiftAKK, F.litnrl ' Entered at Socorro Postollice an second ' clans mail matter. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION. fstrLtly in advance.) One year. 12 no Si month 1 ml , OFFICIAL PAPER OF SOCORRO C0U3ITY. SATURDAY, NOV. lo, iol. New Mexico demands tatehood of the 57th congress. Skvkkal residences and busi ncss blocks in Socorro arc renew ing their age under the hands of the carpenter and the painter. .Thk supply of cottages to rent in tfie city is not eual to the de 'rharhl. This fact suggests an opportunity for somebody to be a 'public benefactor and at the same time to put money in his purse. ,1k every property owner in So corro would spend fifty dollars in 'improving the appearance of his 'domain he would make one of the ' best investments of his life, lie 'would feel a hundred dollar 'richer and that is a profit of one jhundnM per cent. Socokko county's delinquent taxes amount to two hundred and 'seventy thousand dollars. The "collection of ten per cent of this 'slim would put the county into 'splendid financial condition. 'Several prominent citizes who 'know the county well have rcc 'ently expressed the opinion that 'twenty-five per cent of all delin quent taxes could easily be col 'lectetl if collections were pushed. 'It appears as though somebody -were guilty of neglect of official 'duty. Kxplánations are in order, btft don't all speak at once. A Surplii That Slicks. .Wiikíí congress last winter knocked olí $40, 00! 1,0:10 0f taxes 'by removing a large part of the 'imports put on at the beginning 'of the Spanish war iu 1N'(.S it im agined it had abolished the treas ury surplus. Congress was mis taken. The surplus continues, 'and it is as much of a menance as ever. Kvcry month of the pres Vnt fiscal year has shown an ex press of receipts over expenditures. 'Four months of the year have expired, and the surplus to date 'has been considerably in excess 'of $27,000,000. The excess in the Mame four months of last year Vas a little short of $5,000,000, though the excess by the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 1'JOI, Amounted to over $77,000,000. ' At the present rate of surplus accumulation the excess by the time the year ends at the close of nexi June would be about $150, 000,000. The expenditures in the first part of the fiscal year are relatively higher than they íaré'in the remainder of the twelvemonth. The surplus, When there is any at all, is small isually' in the first quarter or third of a year. The immense surplus which is threatened in e' present fiscal year is due fchiefly to a reduction in expendi ture. Though the revenue in the four months already expired of the present year is cut about $4,000,0OO, as compared with the corresponding time last year, the expenditures are reduced $27, 1)00,000. If the margin between Income and outgo keeps around Its present dimensions, relatively to other years, the accumulations Irt't'he remaining eight mouths will 'bring the surplus by June 30 next to a figure anywhere be tween $140,000,000 and$lf.0,000, 000. 1 1 Of course this condition of things will incite a demand in the coming session of congress for a further cut in taxation. Possibly a cut will be made. The Withdrawal of any such sum as this from trade channels in twelve months would cause a monetary disturbance which would have unpleasant conse quences. Secretary Gage is go ing to guard again,st this contin gency by enlarging his purchas es of bonds. Sherman, Folgcr, Grcsham, Manning and other treasury chiefs did this back in the flush days, but a bigger ex cess of income over outgo threat ens now than was on hand at almost any time in the days of those financiers. This surplus question standsa chance to figure among the topics touched upon in President Koosevclt's coming message to congress. Globe Democrat. INJUNCTION (.K.IMKI. Nit Halve In Our A-im'!it Till Judge Further Deride. Saturday morning Judge Mc Millan granted a restraining order in the case of J 110. V. Poe ct al. va the collector of Chaves county. This is the case where, it will be remembered, the Terri torial Board of equalization sought to increase the entire as sessment of the Territory $1, 000,000 by raising the assessment in each county 15 per cent on real estate and stocks of goods outside of incorporated towns and 10 per cent on real estate and stocks of goods inside towns. In fact the Territorial Board sit ting as a board of equalization did make such an order of record. When the people of the Territory heard of the action of the board to say they were wroth, only faintly expresses if, especially were the business men of Koswell anííry because it is a recognized fact that Koswell and Chavez county people give in their lists for assessment more cheerfully and at better valuations than any county in the Territory. So, feeling that they were made to carry a heavy burden because, forsooth, some other county had failed to list its entire projierty, a number of them employed coun sel, the matter was brought be fore the court and upon the showing made in the complaint, which was very full, an order was made of record by the clerk restraining the collector of Chaves county from taking any steps whatever toward collecting the said increase of taxes, or even spreading the increased as sessments upon his books till further order of the court. This restraining order or temporary injunction holds good till No vember IS, when the case will be heard upon its merits and a per manent injunction granted or refused. Sixty-three of the lead ing business firms of Chaves county are the petitioners in the case. Koswell Kesri ster. Spreiul Like Wildllre. When things are "the best" they become '"the best selling."

Antiquarian researches have shown that at one time, of which we have no historic account, the valleys and mesa lands of south ern New Mexico and Arizona teemed with a busy population, who followed the peaceful pur suits of husbandry. Kuined cities proclaim that fact and other relics of their handiwork. They possessed a high degree of civilization and were undoubt edly destroyed by a race of sav ages whose descendants have leeti the bloody foes of a later civilization in the southwest. Their fixed habitationsshow that they lived by tilling the soil and that they practiced the methods now in vogue is shown by the extensive irrigating canals, res ervoirs and storage dams in the mountains. Many of them are as extensive and perfect speci mens of engineering skill as those now being constructed by the aid of capital and which will again make this section capable of sustaining a dense population. In the works now being under taken capital is but walking in the footsteps of a prior civiliza tion. It is making no new ex periments and running no risks. Albuquerque Citizen. oui: SHIPMENTS. They Have Coinmeueeil by Train from the White Oakn District. The first carload of ore over the LI Paso-Kock Island route from the White Oaks country was shipped a few days ago. This is only the forerunner of immense shipments that will fol low from that section. There is more activity in that district now than has ever been, and there are more prospectors in the search for minerals. The chan ces are that there will be steady shippers next year from the vi cinity of White Oaks. There are many propositions near the line of the Rock Island that have been lying idle for lack of trans portation facilities, and now this difficulty has been overcome the owners of those properties will begin active development. With reasonable freight rates the Rock Island road can do handsome business in ore tonnage alone. Albuquerque Citizen. Jumped 011 11 Ten Penny Nuil. The little daughter of Mr. J. N.

On some of the ships be longing to the tropical countries, however, discipline is very lax. The Defense, a Haytian man-of-war, was lying in the harbor of Port au Prince. One day a mess cook, for some reason, clean ed about a peck of knives and forks on the gun-deck, and being suddenly called away, and not wishing to spend time to go to the galley, he seized the mess pot full of knives and forks and stuck it in the muzzle of the ten inch gun, putting the tampion in after it. About an hour afterward the admiral came aboard, and as the gun was loaded with blank cart ridge, they used it to fire a salute. It happened that the gun was almost toward the town, and almost pointblank at the Grand Hotel. The guests assembled on the porch to witness the ceremon ies, when they were saluted with a rain of knives and forks, which stuck against the wooden walls like quills on a porcupine. Fortunately no one was hurt, although there were many nar row escapes. A MOUTHY NlTl'ESSOK. "Something NeW Under Tlic Sun."

Whereas, the president of the United States following an un broken national custom of nearly one hundred vears has proclaimed Thursday, tlie 28th day of No vember, 1901, to be a day of na tional thanksgiving for the divine mercy shown us in the past and of prayers for similar mercies in the future, Now, therefore, I, Miguel A. Otero, governor of the territory of New Mexico, in accordance with custom and the powers vest ed in me by law, do hereby or dain and proclaim Thursday, the 2Sth clay of November, IV! 01, as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer throughout the territory of New Mexico. And while our thanksgiving is mingled with sorrow for the untimely taking off of the great and good presi dent and citizen for whom the country still mourns) it may be that lessons will be learned from his death no less than by his liv ing; and while his body was rev erently laid away by loving hands in the little" cemetery ad joining the humble city of his residence less than two months ago, yet we .may well be thank ful that the laws enacted since the assassination of President Garfield have made the success ion absolutely certain, and no such doubts and fears affect the country as unsettled it on that occasion. We in New Mexico have peculiar cause for thanks giving in the increase of our herds and flocks, and the boun teous products of the yielding earth; the large amount of rail road building now in progress and contemplated; the greater ac tivity in our mining interests, the influx of population and of capital and the promising hope of our near admission as a state, and for our exemption from lire. Hood and strikes, which have af flicted other portions of our na tion. I recommend on that dav that all business, public and private, be suspended, and that the peo ple assemble in their respective places of worship, there to five thanks for their minifold bless ings granted them in the past by Almighty God, and supplica tions for their continuance in the future, and of our bounty let us give to those of less store.
