Much real pre gress that ha been made toward state hood during the last four years may U summed up iu the actual advauce meiit of the Industries of the territory, but when we come to reckon our political advancement It may lie represented by a minus quality. And the reason of this lies in the fact that thoae wearing the Insignia of leadership have not Ih n sincere lu their efforts. The fact is that nothing could be further from the real heart's desire of the Hatila Fe politicians than Statehood. It Is not expected thai these gentlemen should want a change In the status of our government, siuci they have everything to loe tln reb;, but a respectful Henee on their part would la-tter become the dignity ot Ntatcamcn. Thoae who leally wiah for aUtehood are not iu a politlón to advance tin caiiac. The grent majority of the voters In New Mexico are totally unacquainted with a state government, ami clanioi for It becaus they have seen fit to take ii the hue and cry continually being sounded from Santa Fe. That portion of our clllxeiiahlp that haa at some time lived under state government I very much in the minority when It comes to counting voles. It is a claa of our people who look to future statehood, not as an immediate emancipation from a pilfer lug and burdensome government, as we are continually being taught, but as the II mt step toward the llnal overthrow of a tyrannical and deapotlc fanatical act of political wire puller, and the begir iilug only of IndiiKlrial development. The condition of affairs that is ho ed for by our best citizens, under luto hotxl, would gradually work the down fall of the very Individuals who are making the moat fus almut the desired change. None realize more fully what a "iIuIhIi" statehood would bring to them than do then loud mouthed would be lobby lits who are a!wayi about to march on Washington ami capture statehood, but who never cl nearer to the powers than the galleries of mugre halla. The hlcNNlng of Mate hood will neces aurlly Iihvo to be worked out after an enabling act Is panned. We hear much about what atatehood will do for ua. but it la moHtly idle talk, for at beat it will simply pieacut nil opportunity Our government much I ue I wncfull) unstable, now, and merely asNtiuiliig the garb of a Inte will not better thiup. It w lil remain unstable until such time aa the people la-come capable of send ing to Santa lea bodyofexecutlvvaml lc'.lallve otliclals who ure capable of couilticiing the affairs of the territory iu a tiihle maimer. The cry for state hood that emanate from Santa I'e Iiiim a hollow sound and does not meet with a leKponw from the clan of people who long for the change simply us an op portunity to dUH'UHi with the evlln ol the present form of government. State hood I exactly what the Santa Fegauc does not want. What a farce ia theii pretended effort. COST OF TIIK CUUliT.

Arizona has a new assessment law, which should trlpplo the taxable valua tlon of thai territory, which at present I 9.'U,0tKl,00O, or almost as much as that of New Mexico. One cause of the new law provides: "Said court Is exprustdy prohibited from reducing the valuation of any property below the fair cash value of the property, or what the prop erty would sell at for cash." Senator Chirk, for ItiHtauce haa refused to sell his United Verdo mines for SlOO.odiMK, and the asaesaors will increase the val uation of the mine from 500,000 to at leant I0,00,.yxi0. It doe seem fair that the nutii owning millions should pay hla proportion of taxes the same ns the man who may own a little 9500 propeity, which In aNHesfied.at almoxt IU total value, while a. man like. Sua tor Clark, according to his own statement, of the value of the United Verde mines, pay tax on only one two hundredth the value of the. mines New Mexicuu.

It provides that hereafter when any bills aio allowed and ordered paid by any board of county comiula sioners, the same shall have ulainped or printed ou the face thereof by the clerk of said hoard, the following words, "sub Jift, however, to the payment of any taxes, penalties and cost thereon due from the payee or any assignee., as, hIiowii by the tax rolls. of said county, which la to he deducted therefrom," and any warrant, order or certificate drawn for the payment of any such bill shall have stamped, wr!l.t ;r printed on the fat,' theritof, the above words lu umitatloiiK, which ahall lig so placed thereon by said clerk of said board. Whenever said bill, warrant, order or certificate is presented to the treasurer of aald county for payment, he shall first deduct therefrom tito amount of tuxes, penalties and cost thereon due by said payee or any assignee thereof, as ahowu by the tax roll of said county, and pay over the balance, of any funds on bauds out of which the same is or dered paid, and 1110 a receipt for the amount of taxes, penalties and costs so deducted and paid.
