The Citizen office has a Santa
Fe dispatch which says that charg
es have been filed against George
Curry, governor of New Mexico,
and that congress that is, a sen
ate committee, has deferred action
on the governor's appointment.
It is understood that the charges
against the governor have been
made by New Mexicans a few so
called Republicans and a few
Democrats. The cifizen is not in
full possession of the charges
made .but understands that they
are based upon the governor's
career, when he was a hunter of
outlaws and a rough and ready
citizen of New Mexico in the days
when New Mexico was a rough
and ready country.
Such charges are not only silly
they are positively foolish. Gov
ernor Curry to date has made the
best governor New Mexico has
ever had. He has conducted a
clean, straightforward administra
tion and has done all that be could
do to give the people what they
If there are any charges against
his administration, they are false
or without grounds. Charges dating
bak;further than his administra
tion are not worthv of considera
tioh. t George Curry has never
concealed the fact that he lived the
life of the frontier while on the
frontier and that he lived it in a
manly jtashion after the style of the
west in those days.
It is .with regret that the Citizen
hears a report that charges of such
a nature have been made. It is
an outrage. Are the republican
papers of New Mexico again to be
forced to take up a fight for the
republican administration and the
republican organization?
Is the governor to be placed in
a righting position by a few ill
minded tale mongers in the terri
tory? If charges have been brought,
the governor may count upon the
papers ot New Mexico and the
Citizen in particular to stand with
It is hoped that if any attempt
has been made to disparage the
character or standing of the gov
ernor, in the days when New
Mexico was not what she now is,
that congress will have the good
sense to uphold the governor and
that a good administration of pub
lie affairs may be continued under
the Curry regime.
But the Citizen will still con-
finue to hope that the report f'
charges is exaggerated and that
the fair name of this territory will
not be besmerched in the hands
of a few irresponsible men. Albu
querque Citizen.
Yes. Citizen, the Tucumcari
News is with you, and when this
racket starts we want in the game.
The editor has known George Cur
ry personally for fifteen years and
has lived by him as neighbor, and
it is our opinion that he is one of
the cleanest men politically that
ever lived in New Mexico, and all
the morbolic exhalations of putres
cent affluvia hurled at his charac
ter by these gadarene politicians
who are as lilliputian in character
as in politics, will show up on the
political horizon at Washington
about like a gnat on the horn of
an ox. A man who has served
his country as long and as well as
George Curry has both at home
and in the Phillipine Islands should
not be harassed by a lot of hunch
backed pigmies in politics who
envy him ..he high honors he has
won where danger was so thick
that they will never have the nerve
to be seen. Curry is not only
governor of New Mexico in the
fullest meaning the executive title
carries, but he is a generous, in
tellectual good man, and is enti
tled to the unreserved support of
every New Mexican who stands
for good government and clean
The Tucumcari Sun, first issue
was published last Thursday and a
very creditable paper it is. There
is every appearance of business
integrity in the make-up of
the paper and it is off on the
right foot to accomplish much
good for the future of our county
and city. They are boosters like
the rest of us and are apparently
in the business with the intention of
doing business and not for the
purpose of lambasting some poor
devil who don't thumbs up and
thumbs down because he can't
dance to the music of some fellow
who is everlastingly out of tune.
Success gentlemen and mav your

munity of Quay county and Tu

Berkey says he is coming to the

There are ten bales of cotton
stored here for ginning and the
machinery will be put in motion
this next week. It is here now
and being placed for business.
Much of the cotton brought in has
been grown on sod lands and it is
averaging about one bale to three
acres, in many instants n
ceived no cultivation at all, it was
simply left to grow as an experi
ment. It has opened from bottom
to top and the lent is good. Far
mers tell the News that this is a
cotton country and next year much
of it will be planted and cultivated
for the purpose of making money
out of it.
The firm of Whitmore & Addle
man, "The Home Realty Co.,"
has been launched this week and is
a strong one both in personality
and business capacity. Of all the
real estate companies in the field
here this one has certainly the most
fitting name of any one of them.
Notwithstanding the fpet that you
hear the statement that there is
nothing in a name, that word
"home" means something when
ever you hear it or see it, these
people have made a hit in the name
of this business concern. John
Whitmore is among the first set
tlers of this city and one of the
best business getters in New Mex
ico and has prospered in the gro
cery business in Tucumcari. Mr.
Addleman who will look after the
office business of the concern has
training and splendid ability and
is every inch a gentleman. The
News wishes this new firm pleasant
business relations and feels sure
they will meet with success. There
is no question about them being
