THE EAULE: WEDNESDAY, MAY J, 1895. THE UNTUTORED WEST. Peculiar Views of an Eastern Uold Bug Kdltor. It can scarcely be doubted that unless some altogether unforseen events occur to change all the currents of probability, the next presidential contest will be waged upon financial issues, the center of which will be the question of honest money or free silver. Every indication at present points that way. The aggres sive fight that is being made by the men who have most to gain by the adoption of the silver standard of monometallism, those who are interested, that is to say, in silver mines and stocks, together with the vast unwisdom and lack of prin ciple of the untutored west, have already produced an effect. The friends of hon est money are implored to wake up and bestir themselves lest the day of settle ment shall arrive and find them unpre pared. There is a good year before the ques tion begins to take definite shape, and in that year it may happen that higher prices for agricultural products and a renewal of prosperity may turn the farmer from his present purpose, which is to pay off the mortgages on his farm in 40 cent dollars. But with all due allowance made for such a reaction, it is not at all improbable, that the next dem bcratic national convention will be con trolled by the silver men, who will shape the platform and name the candidate. That is the claim put forward already, and although it is probably not justified by existing facts, there is enough in the future to warrant 8eculation as to what effect it will have upon the democratic party. The appeal of the silver men is made naturally to democrats. There is little danger that the republican party will be weakened by defection to the silver ranks, but that the southern democracy will be badly rent by the new outbreak of financial heresy is absolutely certain. Following, as it does, upon the heels of populism, to which the southern demo crats surrendered in such matters as the income tax, it will come in the nature of well earned retribution. The first evidence of a break cornea in the form of a call for a non-partisan con vention of sound money men, represent ing the various industries and enter prises of the south, to be held on May 211 at Memphis. In Uiíb convention the administration is taking a degree of in terest that indicates personal concern in its success. The president has already broken out in a letter to Representative Patterson on the subject, and Secretary Carlisle has promised to address the convention. This, it is anticipated, will have the effect of preventing the disrup tion of the party in the south, and of impressing on the democracy of the south, and of the nation that both ends are still alive. What is more likely is that three can didates will be in the field next year, with the democrat last in the count. N. Y. Commercial Advertiser. Irrigation Enterprise. Hon. Amado Chaves, superintendent of public instruction, has just returned from western Valencia county, where he has been on official business for several days. He reports that the Blue Water company has met with great success in the construction of their big reservoir. The dam has now back of it seven miles of water about twenty feet deep. The company has 200 men at work breaking land, planting, putting up fences and constructing ditches. Some 2,000 acres are already planted and several thous and more will be put under cultivation. The most improved machinery is being used and all kinds of grain is being planted. The enterprise seems to be in the hands of plucky and practical men, who are about to turn a barren waste into a perfect garden. Arrangements are bcinig made to set out orchards of the liest fruits from tho very start. This en terprise has been a God-send to hund reds of native people who have found employment with good wages in these hard times. New Mexican. W. D.
