The left handed phamplet,
published at St. Vrain, which
is recognized as a literary cu
riosity, by reason of its sim
plicity, blurred print, and disin
teresting topics of comment,
continues to weep and wail,
like a yellow cur at the moon,
without apparent reason, but
the News recognizing our su
periority will maintain its
policy of "silent contempt" as
we realize that the man with
the spoon that feeds the coun
try baby resides on North Main
street in Clovis. The fondling
from the bear grass is therefore
irresponsible.
From all over the state comes
favorable press comment of
the manner in which Clovis
conductod the county fair and
silo day celebration and inciden
tally, a few bouquets about our
County Fair edition.
The Clovis Chamber of Com
merce is capable of doing most
anything it undertakes in a
creditable manner when it once
gets thoroughly aroused on the
subject.

have been a credit to any coun

perous than Curry.

ocean, a competitive and short
er line than the Texas-Pacific
and a road that it is said was
also built in order to success
fully compete with traffic from
Gulf to Pacific via the Panama
Canal.
It is an important event in
the epoch of Clovis history and
its influences and benefits will
be greatly realized, not only at
the division points, like Clovis,
but all along the line.
The News dropped a number
of delinquents from the list
last week and this week will
repeat the performance. Some
Clovis people have been educat
ed into the belief by the Post,
News and Journal, that because
they were not '"dunned" yearly
that a newspaper is a free and
charitable gift. This is a mis
taxe. it costs money to run a
paper and lots of it. A citizen
who cannot anord a little over
eight cents a month for his
home newspaper, which is con
tinually boosting his town and
country, and thus enhancing
the vaiue or his property, is
either in desperate financial cir
cumstances or shows a lake of
enterprise and appreciation.
Many are responding, but some
are not.
The first assistant secretary ot
the interior will, according to
Lane, take a broader view of the
homesteader. It has been the
policy of the department in the
past to take the report of one
man. This report goes to the
one above him, who in turn
passes it up with his approval and
then it eventually goes to the
secretary or assistant secretary.
If another investigation is desir
ed, the same investigator is usu
ally sent out upon the case. This
system of investigation has been
a farce, and with the eyes of the
department now turned in the
right direction will see that
justice in all cases is done and
when a claim is investigated will
be investigated in fact and not
in theory. Santa FeEasle.
A. A. Jones, before his ap
pointment, was national com
mitteeman from the state of
New Mexico and was responsible
more than any other man in the
state, for turning republican
New Mexico into the democratic
column, both as far as the presi
dential column is concerned and
the house of representatives,
where a democrat, Harvey B.
Fergusson. represents the state.
Jones has had his political edu
cation in the west, and as a
practical lawyer before the bar,
has come into contact with the
methods of the past administra
tions in handling land cases both
of the homesteader and of the
prospector and the miner.
Immediately upon his taking
office Jones set to work to see if
he could not simplify matters in
the department, also facilitating
matters coming under his direc
tion by eliminating old preced
ents which only hindered the
work of both the prospector and
the homesteader.
All prospectors and miners are
well acquainted with the rule
which has been in effect in the
land office in regard to mineral
patents and with the difficulty al
ways encountered in securing a
patent to mineral land. The rule
under which the department has
been working prescribes that the
land must be of sufficient value to
justify an ordinary prudent man
in proceeding with the develop
ment. This rule was promul
gated after a case had been hand
ed down from a court in Utah
and had been the policy of the
last administration. It has
meant that a man could block a
mineral patent before the land
office if he could prove that the
prospector was not considered an
"ordinarily prudent man."
Jones the first assistant to Sec
retary Lane, practically announc
ed that this rule and rules of the
kind would be eliminated. The
law in regard to mineral patents
has been that a patent should be
issued when there was a "dis
covery of minerals in place and
where $500 in work or improve
ments had been made." This
rule will undoubtedly be adopted
in the department for the future
and will save, according to all
who have encountered the work
ings of the past administration,
much time delay and will enable
the miners and prospectors to
secure patents to their improv
ed claims.
The next big jubilee slated in
Clovis is that of the railroad
celebration to commemorate the
