THE KAULR: WKDNKSDAY. SKITKMI'.KI! 1!, lJHr.
The appointment of .Mr. Rich ardson as a member of the board of regents of the Agricultural college; in the place of Judge McFio, whose term of office has expired, will be received with satisfaction by the democrats of the territory. When Governor Thornton came into office he found four republicans on the board of regents of the Agricultural college, and he has changed the po litical complexion of the board so that it is just as strongly democra tic now as it was republican then. While it is very much to lie regret ted that politics were ever allowed to enter into the management of the Agricultural college, the democrats found a political wrangle of the most malignant kind going on among the regents of the institu tion and have done what they could to put a stop to it. How well they have succeeded is shown by the in creased attendance at the college and the superior character of the work which is being done there. Tine present term of the United States court will necessarily be short for the reason that Judge Bantz will have to open court at Las Cruces next Monday, that being the day for the opening of the regu lar term of the district court for that county. It is expected, how ever, that the next term of the United States court here will con tinue for a considerably longer per iod. The term will commence in February and will probably last well into the month of March. The supreme court of the United ' States decided that the income tax law which was passed by the last congress was unconstitutional, and now a Chicago judge has decided tliat the Chinese exclusion act is unconstitutional. Should the su preme court of the United States take the same view of the case as the Chicago judge, there will be great rejoicing among the China men. Our lawmakers should be a little more careful and try to pass laws that will stand the ordeal of 1 ho courts. Nkxt week the territorial fair will be held at Albutpueniup, and the territory will be well represent ed at the Duke city during the week. None of the representative citizein of the territory can afford to remain away from the fair and the irriga tion congress. The republicans of Pennsylvania have declared against the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 1G to 1. The republican party cannot be expected to do any thing for silver next year. Some of the residents of Dona; Ana county are beginning to talk seriously of removing the county seat from Las Cruces. The county ' seat was never legally removed from ; Mesilla, the books and papers hav ing been removed to Las Cruces in the night from Mesilla which place had been the county seat of Dona Ana county for many years. Some of the good people down there are not the proper dace for the county seat of the county. The board of county commission ers have been directed by the court to levy a special tax to pay the in debtedness of the county to A. R Laird. The amount to be raised is about f 10,000, or some-thing more than the amount levied for the pay-' ment of the current expenses of the county annually. A few special tax levies like this will wake up the taxpayers of the county and cause them to look more carefully into the iiinncial affairs of the; county. The attendance at the Normal1 scho.d is not so large this term as it was hoped that it would be, but ' j the pupils who attend will have all i the better chance to improve in their studies during the year, The Silver City Eaoi.io is uni ; formly one of the neatest papers, ! mechanically, th.it wo receive at J this oT.ce, and it is also ably edit ; ed.
