The People Be Damned
The rote of the majority of the
house of representatives last night to
et Antonio T. Chave as member
irom Sierra county was a fitting cul
mination for the whole cheap, sordid
xnd ugly exhibition of lawlessness
uiven by the majority under the
whip of the coal dictators and other
little bosses. Anti.nio T. Chaves
lias aboit as much right to the seat
irom Sierra county as Emiliano Zapata
up Inhnnv ffinwiiv. Kv hi own '
.howing he was defeated for the
position by a large majority and the
caucus doesn't even claim he was
fleeted This is certainly, the final
crowning canstone of political hood
lumism. Efery thing is now lovely. Four
representatives chosen by the voters
have been sandbagged and if all of
the majority don't stand hitched it
wi II be easy to knock out a few more.
The majority is awfully tough. It
wears Its hat low over its eyes, car
ries its jaw undershot and swaggers
terribly. It would just as lief go
tight up to the governor and paste
him in the eye as not.
"To hell with the State," it says.
"What the caucus says goes with us.
We are going to take this governor
and back him up into a corner and
jam him in the optic. If any guy
ceti funny we'll put him to sleep,

and unafraid newspapers of the state
to expose to the fullest light of the
day every successive step taken by
this little aggregation in taking re

stituting half the state which they re
present. We beleive they are going

Ferguson Bill Passed
A stock raising homestead hill, in
troduced in congress by Representa
tive II. B. Fergusson. passed the
lower house of congress last week
and is now before a committee of the
senate for consideration- Its ul
timate passage there is said to be
assured and this mentis its early
enactment into law.
The bill is designed to lease the
33,000,000 acres of remaining public
domain of the semi-arid states by
a system of grants to each settler of
a home on the land with sufficient
acreage to support his family by
combining forage farming with stock
The bill requires entrjmen to
make permanent tmprovments of not
less than $125 an acre in value and
allows entry of up to 640 acres.

The advertising done by the
Territory of New Mexico at the St.
Louis exposition ten years ago. re
sulted . directly and indirectly, in
bringing 100,000 n-w settlers to the
state, turned the easternen livestock
ranges into agricultural country,
founded villages and towns, created
new counties, and inaugurated a
new era of growth and prosperity.
The territory and the several coun
ties contributed heavily toward the
expense of the New Mexico exhibits
at that exposition, and no one can
say that it was not a good investment1
and has not yielded a wonderful re
turn. At the Panama-California ex.
position being held at San Diego
this year New Mexico and the sever
al counties are again heavy adverti
sers, and it is reasonable to expect
that the returns in desirable
immigration, capital, and resulting
growth and prosperity, will equal if
not surpass the results following the
St. Louis exposition.- The state,
through practically unanimous action
os its first legislature, appropriated
$30,000, and every county in the
state has appropriated from S500 to
(2,000, and many towns and cities
have made additional appropriations.
Union county gave $500; the
Town of Clayton gave $300; De
Moines gave 144; certainly small
sums when compared to the result!
reasonably sure to be realised. The
uionev appropriated by the ounty is
accrued interest on county deposits.

Stores Burglarized
Some time Friday night burglars
entered the Simon Herxsteiii .store
and Hilgers & Barnhart'a atore.
The proprietors say that no goods
were taken. At the Herxstein store
he thieves tapped the cash register
to the tune of $10.00, and at the
other place secured about .30.
Entrance to the Herzstein store was
made by removing1 a lower panel in a
side door; and at Higlers & Barn

Officers are working on what appears
to be a true clue, and the early ap
prehension of the thieves is expected.
