OF HIS RECORD MELONS BEST OF YEAR The record of Delegate to Con gress William H. Andrews dur ing his seven years of service as representative of New Mexico at the National Capital has been made an issue by the Democratic parly in the present campaign, and rightly so. But it is not a record of which the Republican party is ashamed. County con vention after county convention, in its resolutions' conveyed to him the thanks of the party and the state convention at Las Ve gas praised him. The delegate of a territory is a voteless representative at Wash ington. He is no,t considered at all when the big political issues are decided. Nevertheless, more than one congressman, has testi fied that Delegate Andrews se- que Journal. cured more for his constituents than the average congressman, yea, even than the average sen ator. Delegate Andrews never claimed particular credit for this, but gives due mead of praise to his many friends in both Houses and to President Taft. Some of the achievements of Delegate Andrews, in congress have been spectacular, such as the big appropriation for the public building at Albuquerque, which was snatched from an un willing congress at the last mo ment on the last day of a session, and which was added to later through the efforts of Delegate Andrews. Such was also the ap propriation to pay the deficit of $20,000 of the Irrigation Con gress at Albuquerque, an appro-' which Fort Sumner musk-melons have won the favor of the Rock fordites, whose palates they tickled this week through the courtesy of Dr. W. R. Franklin, Dr. W. R. Fitch and Dr. J. P. Gordon, who distributed several crates of them among their friends. The melons so much enjoyed were packed and shipped on the ranche of Ralph Franklin and were part of a two car consign ment shipped to Chicago, The fruit is of fine flavor, sweet and luscious and were by far the best melons that made their way to Rockford this year. There is a colony of Rockford people around Ft. Sumner and friends at home are pleased to think that they are in a section where such fine melons can be raised. Albuquer-! Trade Marks Copyrights Ac.

CITIZENS' LEAGUE 0CT.4TH 1911. f Information has reachd the! Fort Sumner Good Citizens League that letters were mailed to a number of the citizens of Fort Sumner, New Mexico on October the 1st., 1911, purport ing to come from a Committee appointed by the League for the purpose of sending out such notices. The letters were prac tically all the same and are as follows. "To whom it might consern: We have bin asked as Comity of j the Good Citz. League to ask you to leave town are refrain from present ocupation. Respct. Com.

The thousands of pensions or in crease or renewal of pensions, he has aided in securing for veter ans the past seven years, and which put into circulation half a million dollars annually in New Mexico, are in themselves a record not attained by any of his predecessors. Then there came the three great U. S.

No letter ever remained unanswered, no request ever passed undeeded, to him all con stituents looked alike, Republican, Democrat, Prohi bitionist, Socialist or anything else. Delegate Andrews was tireless in serving the New Mex- tion projects involving expendi-! jco people and a powerful hostof tures of millions of dollars.

If he achieved these things as a voteless delegate, what might he not secure for New Mexico, its cities and towns, its irriga tion interests and its dry farm ers, its miners and its stockmen, its railroaders and its other mul tifarious interests, if he had a vote and the powerful new state m? Surely, New Mexico is not un grateful nor is the Republican party ashamed of the record made by New Mexico's delegate in congress, for no matter, what one's opinion as to his personality or his future, the unprejudiced and observant men in both par ties, admit that Andrews has made good. "My record is clean and open. When an effort was made to ruin me, I went into the court as I am openly in this campaign, and I won in the courts because I was not guilty of what had been whether ! charged. Since a boy I have fought my own battles and stood upon my own resources, and I stand now as I stood then. I have been long accustomed to fighting my own fights and the fights of myself are the fights of the American people to-day. "If elected governor of New Mexico I will give an honest fearless conservative and clean administration in that office, and I have no fear of the outcome of the present election. The above is a true statement made by Hon. H. O. Bursum and it positively has been proven by the courts that Hon. H. O. Bur- sum has clean hands and all he has done is true conscientious deeds, furthermore, if the people of New Mexico elect him to be the first governor of the state of New Mexico we should feel more than proud to have a governor like Mr. Bursum at the head of all affairs of the glorious state of New Mexico.
