The News Printing Company Publishers. Entered at the post office at Clovis, N. M. as second class matter under the act of March 3. 1879. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION On.- Year $1.00 Six Months 50c Don't expose your ignorance by calling it "Mexico." That's a foreign country. We live in "New Mexico" under the star spangled banner, United States of America. The great World's Panama Pacific Exposition at San Fran cisco was opened with impress ive ceremonies last Friday. This is in celebration of the completion of the Panama Canal. It you can t be a bell cow then fall in behind in the Cta vis booster procession but get into the game along the line some place. We have the best town, the best citizens, and the best country in the southwest and we want the people to know it. Two murder trials in the dis trict court this week are hold ing the center of the stage of attraction. The defendants were citizens of Texas and if they had done their killing at home. Curry County would have been spared the heavy expense of the trials. Wine, or women or cards at the border town are, no doubt, largely responsi ble for both affairs. The convei ging of all the San ta Fe lines in eastern New Mexico at Clovis has made it the greatest railroad center in the state. Twelve passenger trains arrive and depart daily. The new train schedule is result ing in bringing hundreds of pas sengers over the route each day, who otherwise, would have traveled over the other line. This section of New Mexico is on the verge of the greatest boom in its history. New Mexico is in about the best shape of any state in the union and Curry county is in the best shape of any county in the state, said a prominent San ta Fe official in the city last week. Curry County banks are full of money, the farmers made a good crop and are now getting big prices for it and the live stock industry was never so promising as now. This new era of prosperity is being felt in Clovis and the business men generally wear that look of satisfaction. Rents have ad vanced 25 per cent and property values have increased at least 20 per cent in the last 60 days. There is no complaint to be heard about dull times and every bidy seems to have money The indications at this time point to another prosperous year. They say in Mexico- Good morning! Who is president this morning? Signs of Prosperity. Times are picking up! That wave of prosperity which has beed heralded by the optimistic press must now be at hand. Last week we had the pleas ure of looking at a perfectly gooa silver dollar We even had it in our possession for a few moments felt its feel, car ressed it, and then a greedy creditor came and took it away from us. However, we can say once more in our life we have had a whole dollar in our pos session, at least, for a few brief moments, an J therefore, pros peritymust be at hand; for it is a well known fact that the printer Is always the last one to feel the influence of those, to him, mythical"waves of pros perity." We should not neg lect to say, that fleeting dollar was handed to us by a subscrib er. Ex. PROFESSIONAL Who Runs the Paper? ' In a neighboring county an evangelist took the editor of the local paper to task because the editor accepted a certain adver tising contract. The good man forgot that for years the editor had given freely of his space to help the church; had printed columns of notices of services, meetings, suppers, entertain ments and lectures, all free. In donating this space the editor had given more than the equiva lent of cash. He had given publicity and thus had done more to support the church and pay the minister's salary than any three members of the church had done. An editor has but two sources of income, his subscription list and his space. Yet, in this case, when he sold his space he lost a sub scriber. Of course, no one need subscribe to a paper unless! he wishes to do so, but no sub scriber should want to diitate to the editor as to what he should publish. Many editors will not accept certain lines of advertising. Other editors can not afford, perhaps, to be so independent. Business condi tions often govern these matters. A rich and prosperous Phila delphia weekly of national cir culation for years declined the advertisements of cigarette manufacturers. Business has fallen off lately for many of the big magazines. Now that paper is accepting cigarette advertis ing. Perhaps the editor needs the money, and who shall blame him if he sells his space to the American Tobacco Company? Collier's too we hear, is letting down the bars, just a little. That's all right. Let them down a little further, as long as fakirs and grafters and swind lers are kept out. No one can run a paper to please everyone, be that paper big or little. It is the editor's paper and it is his living. He is the one who should judge what should and what should not be published in its columns. W. A. Gillenwater LAWYER Clovis, New Mexico. T. J. Mabry ATTORNEY-AT-LAW Clovis, N. M.
