Altre1d of Illinois, died on the evening f March 12, after delivering a spearh that evening. Mr. Allgeld was a great personal and political friend of Hon. Willian J. Bryan. The first number of the La Re vista de Taos is on onr exchauge table. It is published in Spanish and is very newsy. One more pa. per for Taos and we congratulate the Spanish speaking race that they now have a first class news paper in the county. From present indication, the land around Questa and Cerrowill be irrigated as we understand four companys have been organiz ed for that purpose. May the best company win and each have their just righte. The water and land is there and should be utilized. The large land owners of Colfax county, met at Raton a week ago Saturday to devise ways and means of resisting the contemplated raise in assessment value in their prop erty. We do not know how it is in Colfax county but it is generally the small land owners that has a kick coining. At least that is the way it Jooks iu this couaty. The correspondent for the Den ver Times wko dates his articles from Trinidad and is trying to boom this camp, .must be a twin brother ic AnaniaB. Such bare faced lies will kill any eamp. The people of Red River would be greatly pleased if the Times would give that correspondence his time they do not want nch rot publish ed about our camp. The truth is good enough for Red River and it does not pay to state anything but facts. We have ifine indications of large bodies ore and every indica tion tkat with proper development our ca-uip will be a great producer. Let the chronic kickers and the Ananhisee take a back seat and lied River will forire to the front. JUST ISSUED N E.

KAU MCDIENTS TOR STATEHOOD A 3'art of a Letter Written for the New York Tribune by New Mexico's Delegate toCon gress B. S. Rodey. New Mexico proved before the; -.oinniittee on territories that she -ontniued a population of not lees than 330,000 American citizens, i more than three-quarters of whom ! apeak, read, and write the English laugnaue, and more thau three- ' fifths of whom are of Anglo- Sax-' ton Aload . It father proved lhati the oitizens of the United SUteB living within its borders of Span ish or Mexican descent were the best kind of people and fully equal in all Tebpects to the best citizens of the United States anywhere in in the union. It futher proved that the territory possessed taxa ble property of the value of $300 000,000, and that, its debt being oompuritively small, it would, when admitted to the union, be the lowest taxed community iu the na tion. It fnthor proved that at the present time it ia making more rnpid progress than any other part of the nation. The committee ex pressed utter astonishment at thd showing which it made. I might here state some of the facts piesented. Its area is great er thau that of the state of New York and all the states of New England and the state of New Jer sey combined. It is first iu the cumber of sheep it possesses pud raises, and in the uumber ot pounds of wool it produces anuu -ally. It in second in the uatioii us a cattle grower. It is first in the I nation in the amount of money it has invested in public buildings j per oapitn. It is first in the nation in the non-sectarian public school ; buildings which it possesses per capita, a;id in the money in ! vested in them, and it is first in J the nation in the amount of mor"v per capita that it spends annua fy I iu the education of its children. ' It is first in the nation in the nn n ber of newspapers per capita that are published within its bordms, and, although there were no statistics upon the subject, I will venture to say from my personal knowledge, that it is first iu the nation per capita in the amount of money spent for the purchase of newspapers, magazines nnd other periodical literature. The Territory of New Mexico has been under that form of gov ernment ever Binoe 1850, and has been a part of the public domain of the United States for fifty five years. Its people have forgotten all other forniB of government, Imoeti bo long have they been in his condition ot tutelage. They have a right, under the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, to '.e admitted into this nnion. They have the same right under trie Declaration of Independence and the (Jonetitu tiou of the United States, and both political p'irties have promised it to them in tl oir platform repeat edly. They potMeas every qualifi cation that can powibly be requir ed, and more, aud even if a politi can one is required bv the party in power, they poll Bene that alto, Theu why should they longer he keep OUt of the union? The tuva of country that forms California,! part of Nt vndn, VinU mid Colorado was artiuired from Mexico at the! KMne time us the urea- now t-mpiiic-ed in New Mexico und Aiizona. 'J Irs government promised the people rf Now M.-xi-o that j- iqld i i.i. liable i fine, a ud that piotuise j uii.s pui n the treaty by whi'Tt tlm ! 1848. So solemn wos that promise, anf! so two years after the date of the treaty, in 1850, without that state ever LUfing paaaed through the intermediate form of a territorial government, wan admitted into the union. New Mexico ot the Fame , . tune, and she was than much net-i ter fitted to be admitted than Cal ifornia, organized a state form of government, elected a Representa tive and two united States sena tors, and sent them on to Wash- ington to knock at the doors of congrt-sa for admitmion to the tin ion. That was "en years before civil war, 'but slje was exicluded and lier senators sent home be cause, as it is said, she had an anti-slavery prohibition in her constitution.
