Daily Herald (Newspaper) - August 28, 1888, Santa Fe, New Mexico DAILY HERALD. VOL I, SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, TUESDAY, AUGUST 28, 1888, NO, 30, THE CONVENTS Doings of the Democrats of Santa Fc County. An Enthusiastic Meeting and Harmonious Gathering to Select Delegates to the Las Vegas Convention. Eloquent Speeches-The Committees and the Resolutions-The Dele-gates Chosen-Proceedings of the Convention. The Santa Fc band preceded the delegates to the court house yesterday and discoursed music at opportune times during the proceedings. Chairman Gildersleeve called the convention to order, and called for the report of the committee on crc-dentials. Teofilo Martinez, secretary of the committee, read the report which was adopted. The delegations from the various precincts were as published, yestcr-in the Daily Hkramj. On motion of Mr. Easley the following committee on permanent organization was appointed by the chair : C. F. Easly, Tcodoro Martinez, Miguel Silva, Frank Chavez, J. P. Victory, C. M. Creamer, J. D. L. A. Carrillo. On motion of Mr. Laugh]in the chair appointed a committee on resolutions, as follows: N. B. Laughlin, Juan C. Romero, Caridelario Martinez, Abe Gold, Meliton Castillo, Bernard Seligman, Vicente Mares. Pending the report of the committee on credentials John Gray moved that the convention hear from Col. Thos, Smith, and the chair chose John Gray, Sol Spiegelberg and Henry Wulff, to invite Col. Smith, on behalf of the convention, to address the convention. The committee found Col. Smith attending to court business in the office of the clerk of the court, and he somewhat  reluctantly responded to the invitation. The convention received him with a hearty demonstration, and the chairman remarked that he had the pleasure of introducing Col. Smith, a Democrat and a gentleman. We can offer no report that would do justice to the speech of Col, Smith, even though delivered, as it was, without any preparation. It wrought the convention up to a pitch of enthusiasm seldom witnessed in a body of that kind, and was ably interpreted by Nestor Montoya, who was chosen to act as interpreter by the convention. Col.' Smith was deeply grateful tor the honor, but profoundly disturbed that due notice was not given him that he might endeavor to do justice to the audience and not be unjust to himself. But he was glad to confront the assembled Democracy of Santa Fe county and talk about the past achievements and the prospects of the party. Though a new comer he was with them heart and soul, and more than glad to co-operate with them in whatever would contribute to their welfare and happiness. He was profoundly impressed with the gravity of the v issues and the duty of every citizen to earnestly address himself to the attainment; of those results best lor the country. We can take no part in the great national battle, though the echoes of its thunders are now reverberating through the land. But none are more interested in the result than New Mexico. New MexiGo lias no voice in a Presidential contest, but the President has' a mighty voice in the affairs of New Mexico. New Mexico has no vote in Congress, but Congress has much to say in the ruling of New Mexico. We are wards with others to chose our guardians. We are the privates for whom others choose captains. While the people of the states are arrayed in a great contest for the control of the government, here in the remote west the people of New Mexico feel that with the east they are one people, with the same hopes, purposes, faiths and aspirations. The speaker eloquently compared the records of the two parties, and drew the lesson that it was dangerous for any party to remain in power so long that they think they own the government, and forget their duty to the people. He believed that the Republican party bid farewell forever to its power in 1884 and would .never again be in the ascendency. The Democratic party had survived all disasters and was once more in charge of the government, where it bids fair to remain. He denounced the excessive tariff tax and, as well, the folly of the free trade cry when that tax was reduced only from 47 to 40 per cent. The speaker hud conferred with prominent and far-seeing eastern Democrats and felt that the fiat had gone forth that Grover Cleveland was again to be President, by such an overwhelming, majority as would say to the world "well done good and faithful servant of the people of America." Col. Smith paid a high compliment to Antonio Joseph, as a faithful, tireless competent public servant, and said that 110 man stands higher with his own party associates or is more respected by the opposite party. He believed that many Republicans would cast their votes for Joseph because of his good works, and because his long experience peculiarly fitted him for still better service for.New Mexico. Touching upon statehood Col..Smith said "it is the wisdom of the Democratic party that will soon endow New Mexico with the seal of statehood among willing sisters." In conclusion, it was not the rostrum but hard work in the field that would win the fight. Every man should be a canvasser under the inspiring genius of Democracy. Then in next November the Democratic cock will shout in such sweet and penatrating voice as shall resound throughout the land, from end to end thereof. RKl'OKTS Of COMMITTEES, The committee on permanent organization reported to the convention through Mr. Victory, the secretary : For President, G. H. Gildersleeve. For Vice President, Teodoro Martinez. For Second Vice President, Solomon Spiegelberg. For Secretary, Henry C. .Burnett. For Assistant Secretary, Pedro Del-gado. For Interpreter, Nestor Montoya. For Sergeant-at-arms, Frank Chavez. On motion of Bernard Seligman the report was adopted. Mr. Laughlin, chairman of the committee on resolutions, submitted the report of that committee as follows, which was adopted: Resolved, That we, the representatives of the Democratic party of Santa Fe county, in convention assembled, do most heartily approve the annual message of the President of the United States to the Fiftieth Congress as the true Democratic doctrine; and that we congratulate the American people on having for President of the United States a bold, fearless, wise and patriotic statesman in the person of Grover Cleveland. Resolved, That we heartily endorse the course pursued by the President in his late message to the Senate of the United States on the fisheries treaty, in his efforts to protect American interests as against the Republican Senate in its efforts to bring into disrepute our international relations with foreign powers to the great detriment of our own people. Resolved,. That we denounce the efforts of the Republican party in trying to deceive the people with the belief that the Mills Tariff Bill is a free trade measure, when, on the contrary, it provides for a tariff of 40 per cent., principally on the. luxuries of life used by the wealthy classes, and the only reductions made are on necessaries of life used by the poor classes of people, and that the reduction amounts to only seven per cent, off the present rate of tariff. We submit to the people, is. this free trade or is it an effort on the part of the President and the Democratic party to legislate for the greatest good of the greatest number as against the interests of monopolies, trusts and "combines," which are the legitimate offspring of the Republican party? Resolved, That.we endorse the course of our Delegate in Congress, Hon. Antonio Joseph, for the past four years and we have but to thank him for the manly md courageous manner in which he has defended the rights of all the people of the Territory, regardless of party affiliations, as against the slanders and falsehoods charged against them by the Republican party. Resolved, That we congratulate the people, east, west, north and south on the results of the St. Louis convention in giving them a chance to vote for two such men as Grover Cleveland, the invincible, and Allan G. Thurman, the "noblest Roman of them all." Resolved, That we especially endorse the efforts of Hon. Antonio Joseph in his untiring labor and his ultimate success in passing a bill through the House of Representatives for the settlement of the titles of lands in this territory, and his efforts in securing the passage of a bill for the settlement for Indian depredation claims, and of all militia claims; and we tender him our thanks for obtaining appropriations for the completion of our old Federal building. We condemn the Republican Senate for its refusal to pass the land grant bill passed by the House. Resolved. That it is the sense of the people of Santa Fe county, that the Territory of New Mexico shall be admitted to Statehood in order the .more early to develop its mineral and agricultural resources, and to more securely guarantee the investment of capital. Resolved. By the reprentatives of the Democratic party of Santa Fe county in convention assembled, that the delegates to be selected by this convention to attend the/ferritorial convention at Las Vegas September 3rd be and they are hereby instsucted to cast the vote of the delegation as a unit for the Hon., Antonio Joseph, first, last and all the time, for delegate to the fifty-first Congress.

Smith for his speech, which motion was carried. Chairman Gildersleeve introduced Nestor Montoya as a man who could make a good Democratic speech. Mr� Montoya spoke in Spanish as follows: Sr. Presidente y caballeros de la Convencion : A causa de estar algo fatigado p or las arduas tareas que he tenido que desempeiiar en este dia, limitare mis observaciones y las condensare en un breve discurso.
