If we want to elect a Republican delegate and get state hood, we must work for harmony. Not mere harmony, but harmony at any cost. The Citizen is in favor of harmony in the Republican ranks and will make every effort in its power to produce that harmony. It realizes the truth of the statement that the Republican party must stick together like two pieces of fly paper, in order to .make the admission of New Mexico an assured thing. But it does not understand this patent truth to mean that harmony and statehood are spelled "Andrews." The Citizen is a Republican paper, supporting in its small way the prin ciples of Republicanism to its ut most, and should the choice of the Republican party in New Mexico fall upon W. 11. Andrews for candidate as delegate to Congress, the Citizen will use its every effort to elect him, believing that Mr. Andrews, in spite of the objections the Citizen has to his re-election, would make a far bet ter man than any Democrat that wai ever nominated. But the Citizen is not owned nor controlled by any clique or ring, and until the choice of the Republican party is made, it will fight the nomination of Mr. An drews in every honorable way possi ble, harmony or no harmony. Is the Andrews clique so disinter estedly devoted to har-nHony and to the general good of the Territory and the Republican party that it would withdraw its candidate should the Republican domination of Terri torial politics be dangerously threat ened becauseoi -laclp-voí hnrmon? Xo, certainly not. To the New Mexican and other satellites of the "Man who does things" clique, har mony simply means the withdrawal of every Republican candidate for the office of delegate to Congress other than W. H. Andrews. And so we are beginning to hear once more the harmony howl. Way down in its heart, the An drews ring realizes that there are good men in the field, who are after the nomination. This realization is coupled with the knowledge that both Hon. Edward A. Mann and Hon. Chas. A. Spicss, who have an nounced themselves as candidates, arc strong men, and equally entitled with Andrews to recognition and of fice by and through the Republicans of New Mexico. And so we hear the howl for h;;: r.iony, which in the minds of the noise makers, simply spells Andrews, and his election Harmony has an cuphoneotis sound .vheii rightly rsed, and will catch irrcat number cf men who do not .ton to think or who do not read . etween the lines. If the Andrews clique is, as we have been told to believe, disinter estedly working for Republicanism in and the general welfare of New Mexico, then there is no need of the harmonv howl. Because if it will abide by the decision oí the Repub Horn party, taking its nicdietnc as it shi eld, and giving to the successful caiuii.U'e for nomination that earn est support, and hearty co-operation which will be his due, then there will be 110 lack of harmony in the Repub lican ranks, and a Republican dele gate will be sent to Congress. But the rub is here. Andrews wants to 50 to Congress at any cost. The lique wants him to go to Congress, and every one that docs not share .'i desire is a trouble maker and 1 ne who endangers the harmony of the Republican party in New Mexico. So we have the harmony howl again. The ki-yi is beginning in every paper the clique controls. Let 'em howl. TUCUMCAKI NEWS NOT FOP - .vNX'REWS. The Tumucnn News, which is on of the biggest and most influential paters in the northeast o New Mex ico, has rciused to give W. H. An drews its support for the nomination delegate to Conutess, and has ten to advance the candidacy oi Hon. Edward A. Mann for that posi tion. In speaking of Mr. Andrews. ti:e News savs. "The News Has on ly the kindliest feelings for o-ir pies c-it dclegat.', Hon. W It. .r. -., ,iiid we ar-: oogiiimt of the g od work he ;Va4 O.ne for us in hi p cut capacity. But we are free to say that we do not believe that he can come out ot tne tignt next tan witn the required majority. The present is what we are vitally interested in just now. What the past has been may not be again, as conditions have materially changed in this Territory. Therefore, we repeat thit we do not feel that confidence in the ability of Delegate Andrews to again plant the Republican standard on the battle ments of success." Coming as this sentiment does from such an aggres sive and clear headed politician as i: Mr. S. M. Wharton, the editor of the news, a man whose acquaintance 111 uuav county memoes aDoue every uc, and a man who is very observ inc. the outiooK tor tne Man wno loes Tilines" in Quay County is rather cloudy. NAUGHTY RATON RANGE The Santa Fc New Mexican is per forming all sorts of journalistic acro batics, using the Raton Range as the mat, and because the Range has been naughty enough to disagree with the "Big Smoke" at Santa Fe in its choice of delegate to Congress. But the C'tizen notes with approval that JoM-hine is herself again, and is well able to hold her own. In the cause of war, we tytnpathizc with the Range, and are backing it to a finish So hop to it and get a red n se. MANN TO RUN. right, and he stuck to it until his pur pose was crowned with success, in the same fearless manner that he will press the rightful claims of his constituents and New Mexico in case he is elected as Delegate to Con gress. - . Even his political enemies will ad mit that there is nothing in his priv ate or pubic life that needs hiding. They will admit that he is a strong capable man in every sense of the words, and that he was never known to break faith nor to forget an act of kindness. It was much through the efforts and constant work of Mr. Spiess, Governor Curry ; and others that the Statehood plank was insert ed in the Republican platform, as through the efforts of any other man or, men. It is folly to state that none but Mr. Andrews can gain statehood for New Mexico. The Citizen is of the lasting opinion that either of the ither two candidates, Mr. Mann or Mr. Spiess will be as potent a factor n gaining .this end as is he "Man who does Things." Statehood is not brought about by the efforts of one man, .even 11 that man be Andrews, and with the earnest work of the Re publicans of New Mexico, the work of Mr. Spiess will be as cogent and as full of results as could be that of the present delegate. The Citizen will grant you that it will take a re publican delegate to gain statehood, but it seems that Mr. Andrews has not the confidence of the people to win at fhe polls, even if he does re ceive the nomination. He had a hard fight last time he ran for the office, and the campaign was reeking with mud and filth. His enemies are numerous and bitter, and this bit terness has not been diminished by what good work Andrews has been able to accomplish for the Territory. So it is doubtful if Andrews will be returned to Congress, even if he gains the nomination, which the Cit izen predicts he will not. Why not then pick on some man upon whom all factions can center. A man who also does things, and does them at the right time and in the right manner. A man who is popular with all classes, and one in whom every one may impose confi dence? Such a man is Hon. Chas. A. Spiess. CinARRON LUMBER CO. LUMBER, SHINGLES AND BUIL'MNG MATERIAL OF EVERY DESCRIPTION, AND BUILDER'S HARDWARE, SASH, DOORS, FIXTURES, PAINTS, OILS, LIME, CEMENT. A SPECIALTY OF INTERIOR FINISH.

Cimarron, New Mexico WHEN IN CIMARRON STOP AT THE Hon. Edward A. Mann, the presid ing judge of the Sixth Judicial Dis trict, and a resident of Alamogordo, has announced that he is a candidate for the office of Delegate to Con great- against Hon.. W. H, Andrews Mr. Mann is no doubt a very coinpe tent and highly qualified gentleman and would no doubt make a very fine delegate. The Citizen has nothing but good to say for Judge Mann, and if his name is the one chosen by the Republican party in New Mexico, the Citizen will give him all the support possible. But Hon. Chas. A. Spiess is also in the field, and between the two men the Citizen favors Mr. Spiess. It i for him first, last and all the time and for reasons which it thinks ade quate. Mr. Spiess is a man who is well fitted for the position in every way, both by training and by natural fitness. He has ever been foremost in advocating such things as are best for the territory and the Republican party. As a politician, his record i not only forceful, but he has also kept it clean. Both his public and private life is beyond deproach. A a lawyer he has attained great sue cess, both in his private practice and as District Attorney, in which ca pacify, he has served two districts As a Territorial official and as a member of the Council, the record of Mr. Spie?s can justly be called brilliant" as the Santa Fc New Mexi can so iorceitiuy put it two years ago. He is popular, not only with the masses, but is influencia! with the prominent men of the Territory, who have confidence in Mr. Spiess and in his integrity ami judgment on all matters. The Citizen believes tha no other man will be able to poll the votes that will be cast for Mr. Spicss, because the people throughout the Territory recognize in Mr. Spiess a leader, one in whom they may place the trust and confidence, one who they know will be constantly work ing for the good of his constituents and his territory, in an intelligent ami comprehensive manner. He is fearlcssf in taking a stand for what he thinks is right, and insisting upoi that rights, whether it be for himself or for those whom he represents. But just recently, Mr. Spiess was of great and lasting benefit to the Territory of New Mexico. He rec ognized that gambling was one of the worst curses that thrived in the territory. He attacked the question without fear or favor and with no hope of reward. His was the legis lation which forever put a stop to open licensed gambling in New Mex ico. His was the hand that drafted the bill to this effect, and it was done because of his high ideals and disin terested wish for the welfare of New Mexico. By fathering such a meas ure, he made hundreds of bitter ene- ELIZABETHTOWN.

Dennis, Indian farmer at Pueblo de Taos, is very much inter ested in sprinting aside from his us ual duties. He made a discovery while fishing on Pueblo Creek, tha he was a pretty good runner in this instance the incentive was behind him. To explain, there was an attrac tive pool which could only be reached by crawling through thick brush of considerable extent. This he did, reaching the pool noislessly rod in hand still on knees and left hand in '.he breaking of a twig he disturbed a neighbor who gave a startled grunt of large proportions, then Mr. D. was the one startled, for not twenty feet away was a she bear with two cubs. Our friend did not wait upon the order of his going, but just went snd so did Mrs. Bear and her off spring and in the same direction. Many things occupied the sprint ing fisherman's mind, that his sprint ing ability was his only means of irainine safety, that he was willing to acknowledge his name was Dennis and many other things. He is a bet ter man for the experience, but i: not quite sure about breed or color of his new acquaintances. 00 0 00 0060 04 o Rocky Mountain Cafe SOUTH OF DEPOT Board fey Week or Month Special Rates given Laboring Men We Cater to Ladies and Gentlemen Only Chase & Sanborn's Famous Coffee Used o 0 00 00 oooo o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o Munich, July 13.
