LasVecs Daily Gazette.
S ATURD Á Y.' S E PTEM B E R 25, 1880 The Gazette'and the New Town. We notices in the Optic of last GAZETILLA. night an article which is both unfair and vituperative. It copies our para graph on the subject of the queer ap pearance which the new town has 6incc the fire and charges us, in very loud terms, of attempting to "stab the very vitals of a commuuity whose in terests are in common with the Gazette.'' Now look here, Mister man and ad junct by proxy to the staff of the Optic, wc advise you to go a little slow before you begin to criticise the policy of a newspaper which you have not known for any great length of time, or else call at our office and Ve favored with a file of the Daily Gazítte and co if you can get into your head what every fair minded citizen already has there, viz, the thorough understanding that the new town of East Las Vegas has never had a more ardent champion than our paper. "Wc have joined in her wonder ful progress, with praise; wc have shared her sorrows. We Have never failed to chronicle all that wc know of interest that has transpired within her borders. Our reporters spend a portion of their time in the new town . every day, and at least one half of our local columns are devoted to new town news.. We believe that Vegas is one com munity; not one word has ever ap pearcd hi our columns which has fa vored any sectionalism, and we refer the hot-headed writer of the article in the Optic to our articles of the past few days strongly urging incorpora tion, wc said: 'Union is strength, and never in the history of the two towns were our citizens so closely united, heart and hand, in support of the common weal as they are to-day. During the con flagration, west side men worked like beavers to aid their cast side compet itors. Wc verily believe that I lie reverses which have overtaken us will he our blessing. Wc have something to work for with our united strength, and that is nothing more nor less, thau the protection of our property and theguarinty of security to individual rights. Thcro is u willing mind to do somo- thins in this direction, to establish a municipal union as was evidenced by the meeting of eitiz"ns on Sunday to - establish a lire department.' Now what can our hyper-critical competitor iiud in any article in its columns which favors as wc do and have done, a community of thought and action. There is no one who will deny, in his sober moments, that each town is necessary to the others wcl fare.. We have always claimed it, wc claim it now; but wc challenge the Optic to show us aline ot strong sentiment where it admits that the old town is necessary for anybody's welfare. They cannot show it; the Optic has selfishly pursued the plan of furthering its own and the new town's iutcrpsts, especially its own. and if it thinks best to pick up our para rranhs and misconstrue them for the purpose of making capital by the pro cedure, it will only find that it adver tises us and shows to a fair minded public that there is only one paper in San Miguel comity that takes upou itself the task, and performs it, of combining in its columns the news and events of the two great commun ities which arc really one. The recent tire occurred in new town: our elaborate account of it was copied into all the territorial papers wc have seen, except the Red River Chronicle. ThcPcnvct papers used our account.. Ono would naturally suppose that the East town paper would bo quoted; but no, impartial judges who were never in our midst found in the Gazette's account more news and more of interest relative to the great event la the community to the vitals of which the Optic says wc are attempting to stab. i r Our course has ,been conservative " always as that of the Optic has been radical. We said nothing of thu queer look of the burned district that wc should not have 6aid if the ashes were around the plaza. To conclude, wo would say to any other who might have misunderstood the paragraph alluded to, that wc who wrote it and who wrote the arti cle above on incorporation, belong to the cast side ourselves. Can you im t ' nsiho. thennnv hostile feeling back of the inoffensive paragraph ? Por esta es dado aviso al Pueblo del del Condado de San Miguel, con el Richard Dunm, del Condado de San Miguel. Las Vegas, N. M., Sept. 22, 1880. Personal and General Gathered From All Quarters of the City and Vicinity. publishing a good River Chronicle at Democratic Convention. Notico'is hereby given to the peo ple of San Miguel county, New Mex ico, that on the 5th day ot October a Democratic county convention will be held at ten o'clock, a. m., in the court house at Las Vegas for the pur pose of nominating candidates for the Legislature and other officers of the county of San M'guel, Territory of New Mexico. Full delegations arc expected from every precinct. Richard Dunn, Chairman Democratic Executive Committee. , Adversary Ball. F. of of Las Vegas Lodge No. 4. I. O. O. will have a grand ball on the 27th October'. This is the aniversary the organization of the ordci in this city. A good committee has been ap pointed to attend to the matter. A good time is anticipated as is always the case at the entertainments of this organization. -- The Red River Chronicle makes the. folio wins: sensible comments on the present territorial campaign: Can there really be no paper pub lished in New Mexico, without having slurs thrown at it for not taking sides in political matters.' What dif ference does it make, to us down here among the cattle ranches, whether tho Rcpublicaus elect Luna, or Otero, is scut to congress with a Democratic majority. Neither the one nor the other can do us much good m con gress, and to do no harm, - all, that may be asked hi' a delegate. Any inau with common sense ough" i be able todo that. Then why so :, .ch hub bub about nothing. Wc arc sick and tired of politics and righting the bat- tic for others. There isn't one man among a thousand who runs for office honest enough to remember the pled ges made before the election. After the certificate of election is in his hand a little axe of his own is gcucr ally ready for the grindstone. We don't want to be responsible for oth ers' misdoings any more; if the man whom ve favor with our vote, turns out to be unfit, we shall vote for an other to fill his place. This is our priv ilege as private citizens. Let those who wish, do the dirty work, for lucre. We do üot want any in ours, and under no circumstances whatever shall our papers be devoted' to poli tics. At least while we have con trol. Editor Gazette: Last evening's Optic, under the cap tion of ''inexcusable ignorance' con tains an article ridiculing the Gazette's French a name in the telegraph, which seems to me to be an entire misrepresentation, as the Ga zette of yesterday morning has no such dispatch as that indicated by the Optic.
