We are democratic in belief and have always voted the dem ocratic ticket; but it has been well said that the real friend- of a man is the one who can see and tells him his faults. It is this principle which causes us to say that it is very strange that, not withstanding the outlook for democratic success next month is promising indeed, that not one thing has been done looking to the calling of either precinct or county conventions to nominate delegates and tickets respectively to be voted on at the approach ing election. LARAZOLA' 3 CAMPAIGN. The Republicán presa of New Mexico, realizing the fact that the Democratic nominee for del egate, Hon.jO. A. Larazola, is making such splendid progress in his campaign as to seriously alarm the most rabid Republican, have converted their editorial columns into sheets of vitupera tion and abuse. This is poor ar gument indeed, and such argu ment as is not calculated to win votes for Andrews at the ap proaching election, Advices received iu this county from persons thoroughly ac quainted with conditions, say that Larazola will carry three of the largest counties in the Southeastern part of the Terri tory, which have heretofore given large Republican majority. The election of a man of the reputation and the record like Andrews over a man like Lar razóla a man who would reflect credit iu the halls of congress tj any district in the United States would be a reflection up on the intelligence of the people of New Mexico: and would in deed bo corroborative proof of the often repeated Mtatotnent jnade in congress during the statehood question, that New .Mexico is unfit for self govern ment. We believe that the results of the November election viz: the election of Larazola, will prove the complete refutation of this fallacy. About Statehood. . The following is an extract from a letter by W. B. Childress on joint statehood. ' To the Voters of the Territory of New Mexico: At the ensuing November elec tion you will be called upon to ac cept or reject joint statehood with the territory of Arizona as pro posed toyou by the act of con gress authorizing the people of Arizona and New Mexico t into the Union ns one tnte, pro vided the people of the t wo terri- iqne, voting separa t cly, shall so elect. No more momentous ques tion can ever be submitted to the people of New Mexico for then consideration and determination. We propose to submit to you a few plain facts and reasons why you should vote in favor of joint statehood. First: The territory of New Mexico has asked for statehood from congress from the time she first became a territory up to the present time without success Bills for her admission have pass ed one or the other houses of con gress to be rejected by the other It is a fact known to all well in formed persons, that when a bil for the separate admission of New Mexico has passed one house, it was well known by many of the members who voted for it that it would not pass the other. It is undeniable that the people of the great states of the Union, with out regard to party, are unwilling to admit any more new siutes, wnaiever tne area may be, having a small population It is also well known that the conditions are such in New Mex ico and Arizona that the suprem- est optimist can never hope for any but a comparatively small population, sparsely settled over its plains, in its canons and along its streams. President Roose velt has frankly told us that if we reject this offer we must ex pect years to pass before we have another. As our friend he has aaked us to accept it. Not only is this true, but there was n't a singledemocratic vote cast in either house of congress against this bill when it was passed, and practically both great political parties in the United States stand for this measure. Shall we reject it? Every considera tion for our present and future welfare impels us to say "No." If the people of Arizona see tit to reject it, however much we may regret it, is no reason why New Mexico should do so. A de cided vote for it by New Mexico will undoubtedly hasten the day when we get statehood, either joint or single. What benefits will be derived from statehood under this act? We receive from the United States lands as follows: 16,738,183 acres - Four sections in each township in Arizona and New Mexico; computed from the area of each territory, for pub lic school purposes. 192,000 acres for university purposes. 192,000 acres for legislative, executive and judicial buildings. 200,000 acres for support of in sane asylum. 200,000 acre for penitentia ries. 200,000 acres for deaf, dumb and blind asylum. 100,000 acres for minéis' hos pital. 200,000 acres for normal schools 200,000 acres for chnritable, penal and reformatory, 300,000 acres for Agricultural and Mechanical colloae. 200,000 acres for School Mines, 200,000 acros for military stitutions, gether with all the saline lands, 543,080 acres of this' grant, were for educational purposes. Thus it will be seen that the state of Arizona will receive with the sa line lands, more than 19,000,000 acres of land, and 5 per cent of all sales of public lands not do nated to it; and, last but not least, $5,000,000 in cash from the treasury of the United States; all to be held in sacred trust for the education of the children of the present and future genera tions'in the state. An endow ment which has been estimated at $30,000,000. In addition con gress pledges itself to continue the annual cash appropriations now made to the agricultural colleges in Arizona and New-Mexico. Can we afford to reject this munificent endowment upon con siderations of partisan or disap pointed ambition or prejudice? We say no From Folsom. of ni 18,922,133 Hi rei tot-il. These lands ar in addition to the lands already ,r ti.ted to New Mexico by the ait of June 21, 1898.
