Valverde Wins. The Clovis News is glad to an nounce that its old time friend and fellow "worker," Paz Val verde of Clayton, Union county, has, after a hard struggle suc ceeded in landing the job of Register of the Clayton Land Office. The following telegram in the Clayton News says: The News Printing Company (Incorporated) J. E. Cubren, Editor. Arthur E. Curren, Manager. HE HID HIS MONEY IN THE GROUND. ITS GONE IF HE HAD HIDDEN IT Ih OUR BANK IT WOULD BE SAFE NOW Entered at the post office at Clovis, N. M. as second class matter under the act of March 3. 1879. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION One Year $1.00 Six Months 60 Crops in portions of Curry county are better this year than they have been for five years. Some splendid exhibits will be shown at the Curry County Fair. Another good shower fell Sun day and again Tuesday of this week. While the rain-fall in town Sunday did not amount to much, it is reported that good soaking rains fell at Claud, and also south of town for some distance. The Curry County Fair, to be held in Clovis in October promises to eclipse in suc cess any heretofore held. The Fair last year was grand, but with better crops and bet ter stock in the country this year, the indications point' to a more successful fair. The Roswell News and Register-Tribune published in the Me tropolis of the flourishing Pecos Valley country has been guilty of getting out a "special edi tion", and its a dandy, too. It is a pictorial eddition containing views of the beautiful homes and fruit farms near Roswell, and is printed on fine book paper. The Chamber of Commerce of Clovis needs the assistance and co-operation of every citizen in terested in the welfare of Clovis. Ignore this necessary organizaticn and refuse to at tend its sessions regularly and you are doing your part toward killing the the town. Keep up your membership and attend regularly. Clayton, N. M. "Committee hearing complet ed, favorable. Valverde will be confirmed to-day." H. B. Ferguson. The Clayton News says: The above telegram was received at 2 o'clock to-day just as we were going" to press. Mr. Valverde had probably been confirmed as Register of the Clayton Land Office by the time we received the message. We congratulate not only Mr. Valverde in securing this much deserved and well merited ap pointment but also the honest homesteader and actual settler of Union county. The Demo cratic party did the wise thing and the right thing at the right time this time in Union county, and it is to be hoped after six teen years looser that the Demo cratic party of Union county has learned something and if it would continue to be a success politically it must harmonize and lay aside its little personal pre judices against its own members. The future political fight in Union county will be the same as it is in Curry county not be tween Democrats and Republi cans but between carpet-baggers and pioneers in the Democratic party. In Curry county the pioneer democrat is nothing more than a target for the lying abuse of every political blackmailer and interloper that comes in to gobble up a piece of Uncle Sam's free land and run for public of fice. History repeats itself and Union county and Quay county Democracy is more liable to be wrjcked by the carpet bagger and grafter within the party than it is by the open enemy the republican party. Remember there are three dis tinct classes of agitators that a party can ill afford to fight: One is the suffregette, the other is a "cripple" and the Third is an ignorant, scurrilous blackmailer. We hope Union county democ racy willavoid the big grafting rocks upon which the Curry county democratic ship is about to be wrecked. I A party who is supposed to represent the Commissioners, has been around for the past two weeks "seeing" the grand jurymen who were drawn for the coming term of district court which convenes on Sep tember 22nd. This man whose identity is known to many is urging the jurymen to appoint a special committee to investi gate the books of County Clerk Await and County Treasurer, Taylor. He at least made this request to two members of the jury who have made the fact known to the News. From one of these, he received the en couraging information that Awalt's books had already been investigated by the traveling auditor of the state and as far as he knew were in satisfactory shape. He was also told that the grand jury may do some inves tigating concerning the affairs of those whom he was suppos ed to represent. This person who had the nerve to approach these jurymen on these subjects may also be hailed before his honor. A Fair, Square Judge. In speaking of Judge T. D Lieb of the 8th Judicial district the Clayton Citizen says: Judge Lieb is the finest, fairest, squar- est Judge the people could ask lor, and the Democrats are proud of his record thu3 far. He put the Grand Jury to work Monday morning and then ad journed the court until Tuesday, as Monday was labor day. The Grand Jury will complete their labors to-morrow, and we will publish a full account of the bills found by them. Do you see this picture? Well this is a common occurrence.

"Roswell News. Mother of Eighteen Children. "1 am tho mother at eighteen children and have the praise or doing- more work than any young woman in my town . ' writes Mrs. C. J. Martin. Boone Mill, Va.

The largest, best flavored and most juicy peaches, raised with out irrigation, that we have yet seen in New Mexico were those from the Victor Nelson place, five miles Southwest of town. The NEwseditor received a sack of this fruit from Mr. Nel son this week and havinsr sam pled the goods know whereof we speak. Mr. Nelson has had some of the choice fruit preserv ed with the expectation of win ning the prize at the Curry county fair. We have been asked why it is that the country press of New Mexico attach so much import ance to the office of Register of the U. S. T ani Office, and in re ply would say: The Register of the U. S. land office is the "one ftnd only man in his respective district who can "make or break" his party in his district. To his good will depends the life or death of the party press and when a Register discriminates with the federal patronage of his office as against one loyal newspaper of his prty and gives all the party pap to another he can kill his party quicker than any other man in public office.
