I Many false statements have been made but no one has been able to point lout single section whli é a ant for ' the best interest of the people and fair to all alike. One misstatement is about the public debt to lie a-sinned by the state. The facta are: 'I he Enabling Act requires the tttate i to aaaume the debt of the Territory of '.New Mexico and of the several counties thereof, including certain railruad aid honda of Santo Fe and Orant couuties that the State will assume these debts und issue bonds tUerefof; but it also provides thut a tax be levied on the propei ty in each county to ray tV interest and sinking fund for that coun ty's share of the bonds.

So the people will loe nothing by the payment of those debts, the couuties will get the benefit ot lower rates of interest and tho school fuud will be enriched by many millions of dollars. li is charged that the expense uf a ptate government will cauae lucreaae taxation.

The Enabling Act grauta to the state for the athoels. sad atata institutions about 3,760,000 aerea of laud and a certain portion of the proceeds of sale of ail public lands within the state, it is of the titmiwt Importance that New Mexico should be admitted as soon as possible so that these lands may be selocted before all the good public lauda aro diaposed of. The ini-oii.. from the rentals and sale of this land would furnish a large revenue for the support of the schools and public institutions and very much decrease the burden of tnxntion It should be unnecessary to say any thing to those who have lived under n territorial form of government, about the desirability of statehood. I copie in all ages have fought for their indo)xvndeuce, the right to govern themselves. The people of New Mexlcu have struggled under a territorial govern ment for over sixty years and it speaks wall for the character of the people an, , ,.. wonderful natural resources of the Country that there has been a gradu al improvement duriug all that time, in education, in government, in con dition of living nnd in everything that makes for a higher and better civili sation. Rut during that time we have seen successive waves of prosperity sweep over the country, which have enriched the people of our neighboring states but of which very little crossed the har rier of territorial government into New Mexico. We want to elect our own governor, judges and other officers. We want a voice in the election of the president of the United States. We need two senators and two rep resentatives in congress to see that New Mexico gets asquare deal along with the other states; that a fnir share of the money appropriated by congress for pnhlie improvements be expended with in the state; ami that the millions of acres of land withheld and tied up in reclamation ami other project, be thrown orien to settlement nt Hie enrli est prmxihlc moment. The wice statesmen who ucgoiin i d the treaty of (!uadalue Hidalgo, which transferrer! thi territory and its inhabi tant to the Cnited Stnles, realized that the people of New Mexico could not Iiohs to achieve their highest destiny under a territorial form of government.
