Peculiar Views of an Eastern Uold Bug
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
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
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.

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.
