MIMBRES RIVER NOTES.

About the politician.
Lowuu Mimhrbs, Oct. 6. Have' 'not
communicated with you for several
weeks, lmt everything of a political na
ture has been so quiet since the recent
conventions that nothing hag happened
worthy of note.
Doth the old parties' candidates have
hcen upon the river canvassing but as
they only used sweet words, poor cigars
and chewing gum their advent and de
parture were alike unnoticed.
As the river furnished her quota of
patriots for political preferment in the
late republican convention held in Sil
ver City, and as "a great many were
called but few were chosen" there is con
sequently a little soreness, some kick
ing and a great deal of talk of
leaving the country but not the
party, however. It seems that
once a republican always a republi
can, while others take a more philo
sophical view of the situation and say that
a man of experience, at least of political
experience, should know better than to
monkey with the muzzle of a loaded
We met a friend of ours the other day
who said he never knew until recently
that the officers of Grant county were
responsible for the attempt to restore
the lovely Lily to her Hawaiian throne,
or was directly or indirectly connected
with the removal of custom duties on
wool. This matter should be investi
gated by the taxpayers, and if any offi
cials are culpable they should be sum
marily shelved. He had long had the
wool pulled over his eyes with the lielief
that the care and supervision of the
county's affairs was the duty of its offi
A great many of the voters of this sec
tion have come to the conclusion that
for all practical purposes Fleming
is the democratic party, Laird the
republican and Lindauer the populist
party, and as we are told that "the first
shall be last, and the last shall be first"

By the report of the last meeting of the
board of county supervisors, we see light
breaking through the rift in the clouds of
adversity and financial depression
with which the taxpayers of Grant conn
ty have so long been afflicted. Tf they
can only secure aloard of commissioners
who are true to their interests, men who
will proclaim their plans, purposes and
policy if elected and whose practice cor
responds with their professions, all will
yet be well. We are glad to know that the
members of the present "board have
bad the "courage of their convictions"
and taken a lone step in the ritrlit. direc
tion. Let those who aspire to fill their
places declare their intentions, for those
ho are not for us are against ns.

matter shall have careful attention.

Smelter In Prospect.
The Liberal readers will remember
that last June A. D. Freeman shipped a
carload of ore samples to the American
Zinc and Lead Co. at Canyon City, with
the idea of getting the company to build a
smelter here. Mr. Freeman followed
the ore in June and got back home Sun
day night. The ore got tied up in the
strike and did not reach the smelter for
two months after it left here. The ore
satisfied the company and Manager F. L.
Bartlctt is exacted here next week with
the intention of looking the ground over.
If he finds things to suit him he will
build a concentrating plant. The Amer
ican Zinc and Lead Company is making
arrangements to build a hundred ton
copper smelter at Deming, which is
something the citizens of that lively
town have not discovered yet. The
smelter would be built at Lordsburg if
the company could have secured any
concessions from the Southern Pacific
company, but none could lie obtained.
