OLD ABR EAOLE, Vol. IV. No. IS.
NEW MEXICO INTERPRETEN, VOL,. VII.
The present movement toward
building a railrond through this
section of New Mexico, one of the
principal objective points of which
is to be White Oaks, has attracted
wide attention to the town; and
should it be definitely settled that
the line is to be constructed there
is no room to doubt an era of de
velopment would dawn upon the
now isolated camp that has seldom
had a parallel in the history of the
west. The project may succeed or
it may fail: and its failure, should
such be its end, should not be a
matter of more than regret, for as
every one 3 fully awure, capital
ists an very shy of investments in
railroads at this time. And their
distrust is, us a general proposi
tion, well-grounded; for existing
roads have suffered very severely
from the business depression, la
bor troubles, and the shoutings of
political shysters who have taken
advantage of prevailing conditions
to set the people at enmity with
their manngements. It is hard to
convince those from whom the
money with which to build must
come that such investments are
good. But th Eagle regards the
line in question as as an issue out
side the general proposition of
ralroid construction. The con
ditions are exceptional. The sec
tion to be travelled is probably
the 1 irgest habitable area in Amer
ic.i today without a railroad; and
while in the arid belt, it is capable
of sustaining perhaps not a dense
but a numerous population. The
quantity and quality of the nat
u ral resources of the country to be
traversed mako this a matter of cer
tainty; and notwithstanding the
fact that it is a hundred mil's from
its center to a railroad in eitherdi
rection, the population steadily in
creases and property and business
are augmented in value and vol
ume. Theje conditions make it
appear to the Eagle that this is
one of the most promising, if not
the mast promising, fields now left
untouched by a railroad. No false
inducements are being held out to
prospective investors in any line of
enterprise here. All the people
wish is that they "como and see."
A railroad, however, would be the
mout acceptable form of invest
ment now becauso it draws after i
a train of others that must w,iiton
it. Tlia poople of t!io whole sec
tion have evinced a disposition to
meet the railroad builder, whoever
lie may be, who means business,
in the most liberal sfirit.
The way the monied people han
ker after American bonds, as is
indicated in the fact that the last
issue could have been Kld many
does not KPem to show any weak
ening of America's credit. Hut it
shows a mat'er of more nerums im
port to the labor of this country:
that is that CHpüal is seeking, al
most scrambling, for investment
.outside the lines of enterprise
wherein its employment lias here
tofore, until recently, made Amer
ican labor the best paid and most
prosperous in the world. Capita

the signs of the times and act with
judgment. Tliii is a time to in
vite capital to enter labor employ
ment not to dare it to. It is a
good time to do some thinking.
It does seem a bit strange that
the comptroller of the currency
should refuse to allow a properly
appointed committee of the legis-
ature to examine the books and
papers of the defunct National
bank of Albuquerque, when both
the Territory and its citizens indi
vidually are interested in it to very
arge amounts. It looks as if the
comptroller, acting under the in
spiration of interesed parties, not
necessarily with guilty knowledge,
is shielding somebody against ex
posure. The whole chain of pro
ceedings in the prosecution of Fol
som, his sentence, and the tender
ness with which he has been han
dled since, all make it look to an
outsider as if this farce was en
acted for the benefit of some one
whom Folsom could expose. What
does he get for this scape-goat act?
Comptroller Eckels' reply to Gov
ernor Thornton's request that the
committee be permitted to examine
the bank's books and documents
was both curt and unsatisfactory.
He refused to grant the permission
because the receiver had informed
him that there was nothing in the
books or letters of the bank that
would throw any light on the raafc
tor. In that case no harm could
have come to any one at any rate,
and the action of the comptroller
would have borne on its face at
le sst the semblance of fairness and
Now that the labors of the leg
islature are about done for this
time, the Eagle feels that while it
cannot poiut with pride or satisfac
tion of an exalted degree to the
record made by the lawmakers as
a body, yet it may properly bestow
merited praise upon individuals.
The particular individual in mind
is Councilman George Curry of
this county, which has often hon
ored him, and never with misplaced
confidence. He was called to the
presidency of the council at its or
ganization, and in that part
of tha work showed U19 same
independence and partiality for
fairness and justice that has char
acterized bis conduct in his official
capacity since. He has retained
the esteem of his party friends and
at the same time won the res poet
of the opposition, and is today one
of the Rtrong young men of New
Senator M. W. Kaksom of North

just retired from tho Supreme
bench of the Territory and the
bench of the fifth judicial district,
lias formed a law partnership with
Elfego Baca, with the firm title of
Freeman & Haca, and opened an
office in Socorro. It is neo Ileus
that the Eagle introduce Judge
Freeman to New Mexicans, to
whom he is already well known as
an able and honorable lawyer and
