   Daily Herald (Newspaper) - September 7, 1888, Santa Fe, New Mexico                                THE DAILY HERALD. VOL. I. . SANTA FE. NEW MEXICO, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1888. NO. 39. Grand Ratification Rally of ihe Democracy of Santa Fc County. The First Gun of ihe Campaign. .T.'!.i�K�rrar"th*b.Speeches and the Exerciser �f ^ Occasion.. ^;" The Democracy of Sanle T'c county filled the auditorium of the court room last night with a vast multitude of enthusiastic and patriotic American freemen, who had turned out to ratify the nomination of Hon. Antonio Joseph, who by tireless energy and fidelity to duty, has for the third time became  the nominee of the Democratic party  for delegate to Congress.    The   court room was beautifully decorated with American flags and bandanas. Chinese lanterns and variegated drapery festooning the walls >and   ceilings.    Magnificent boquets of flowers culled from our local .gardens, the gifts of friendly lovers of the nominee, adorned the presidents table.   Across the space occupied by the bar hung evergreen mottoes which read as follows: 'Wei come to the chief,' 'A. Joseph El De fendor del Pueblo,'  'A. Joseph our unanimous choice,'  A.  Joseph the friend of the people.'   Many ladies graced the occasion by their presence and appeared deeply interested in all that fell from the lips.of the speakers. Mr, Joseph's manner of speaking, his easy address and musical voice captivated the  audience from the start.   C. M, Creamer, the Chairman of the county committee, in a . few  well   chosen   words   called the meeting to order and nominated Hon. Willi Spiegelberg for  president of the meeting, and Migutl Silva and Ramon Padilla vice-presidents -.and John   P. ^Victory, Jose Ortiz y Baca, and �. H. Salazar as secretaries.   Upon Judge Spiegelberg assuming the chair he eloquently eulogized Mr, Joseph and said the people of Santa Fc county will be proud to honor him by their suffrage and support on the sixth of November next.   He then introduced Mr, Joseph who spoke as follows: Address of Hon, Antonio Joseph. "Mr. Chairman, ladies, gentlemen and , fellow citizens,   I extend you the hand of friendship and I welcome you with,, the greatest pleasure imaginable to a discussion of those living principles   of Democracy- ; principles created and promulgated I by the people, and establishing that great fundamental axiom of equal rights to all and specia) privileges to none.   I ask your indulgence . while I cast a retrospective glance over Jthe' past of our party.   From : the time it was created, under the guiding hand of a Jackson and Jeffei> son, and for'a period of over sixty years, her history was replete with progress and prosperity. State alter state, and territory after territory, j were acquired under her sway of I power and even Alaska came to us t through Andrew Jackson after he had pronounced himself  a. Democrat. The greatness, the   richness and wealth of the nation is due to Democracy.   That great party has given us an Andrew Jackson and a Thomas Jefferson and as under their banner we marched to greatness so the same party has given the people Grover Cleveland a wise statesman who will lead us on to victory.   As your ser-' vant, and as your delegate, I desire to.give an account of my stewardship.   1 would like to have the timje to explain to you the many acts introduced for the prosperity of the Territory. "The first act creating a land court to adjudicate the tifle of grants in the Territory was introduced by me and through the aid of a Democratic House it was passed without a dissenting voice. It is now in the Republican Senate and that body . refuses to pass it because it will gfve a few appointments ,to President Cleveland,  It is the third bill that I have passed in the House, and every time the Republican Senate have refused to afford relief to the people of New Mexico. It is the same in regard to Indian claims. We passed in the House a bill to examine into the depredation claims of the United States. In this Territory there over 5,000 claims and involving something like five mil* lions of dollars. The act passed the House by the support, of the Democratic members. In the Senate,;it is always, in a fdjgotten placets theRepublicans'ofw'at body don't care about the Territory of New Mexico. I would like to have time to notice all the bills passed through my humble efforts, but my time is limited and I must be brief. However, another important matter is the admission of New Mexico into statehood. In 1874 an enabling act was passed through Democratic influence in favor of the admission of the Tern'tory, as a soveregn state of the Union. Then" we had no rail roads, not half of the population, not half of the wealth we have" now, Then they weie anxious to admit us because they thought it would be Republican. "After fourteen years New Mexico through its humble representative is asking that the same enabling act may  be passed  as she has greater wealth,    more    intelligence,    and double the population to entitle her to shine in.the beautiful constella tion of states.   Two generations of people have passed away since the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, and yet the United States does not com ply with its promises made in that solemn compact.   The scandalous report of the committee on territories breathed vile and abusive language against our mothers, our wives, and our beautiful daughters. I shall leave it  to you, if the  answer I made and the defense I set up in your be half was' or was not a vindication of my fellow citizens of New  Mexican birth.   Both parties here are ready and willing that New Mexico shall erect itself into a state in order that we may. have greater protection to life and property and under the a:gis of statehood rapidly advance in prosperity and wealth.    ^Ve are tired, heartily tired of pupilage and demand that the universal sentiment of the people- shall be respected by a speedy admission of the Territory among the States. If you are puppets I have no wish to live among you The feudal times' have passed by. i glorious voice cries to you liberty Fellow citizens I do not wish, to tire you.   Other gentlemen more worthy will address you.   You have honor ed me with a nomination for the third     time-an    honor . never conferred on a citizen' of New Mex ico   before.    It   is    a   mark gress and he secured an appropriation for a federal bulling for this city and many other appropriations .for the good of the Territory. The year after, the Republicans came into power, work on the federal building at once ceased and other contemplated improvements for the good of the whole Territory, under appropria- of your affection and esteem.   As a good soldier I will answer to the call of the great Democratic party carry ing ever the Democratic standard at the head of the marching columns who in the 6th day of November next will lead us on to a glorious vie tory.   I thank you for your kind at tention   and   especially   to    you beautiful ladies and intelligent men of both parties--who have honored me with your presence." Mr. Joseph' address was heartily cheered in many places during its delivery "Well done good and faithful servant, enter thou into thy third term." Address of C. H. Gildersleeve C. H. Gildersleeve was' then in troduced and spoke as follows: "Mr. Chairman aud fellow citizens. , It not my intention to inflict upon you a long-speech.   A citizen of Santa Fe should ever have an affection for his town and appreciate all that' will add to  its greatness and prosperity.   Call to mind all that the Democratic party has done. You all recollect the last twenty-five years how    much     Republican    delegates      in      congress      accomplished     for     the     community. Contrast those twenty-five years of Republican administration with the four years of Democratic power, and bear in mind that congress is not Democratic When a bi^siness man having in his employ a trusted agent sends him abroad to do what he can for his interests, he expects fidelity to duty, and upon that agents return he naturally calls him to an accounting.     What    have     you     accomplished    is  naturally   asked. In      1855      the     Democratic party had a representative in Con- tions of Congress, were at a stand still, and 20,000,000 acres of land of our-Territory was given to the State of Colorado. Twenty-eight years passed by and again the Democratic party secured power and it has not forgotten New Mexico.   No sooner in power than our honored delegate Hon. Antonio Joseph calls the attention of the Democrats to this condition of affairs.   Soon a new order of things arise.   The Democratic party makes good its promises.  An appropriation of over j$5o;ooo is secured and the federal building is now approaching completion, and will be an ornament to the city and a monu ment to the good work of our party This is Democracy.    Again, the Democratic party is in power .and at once the practical civilization and education of the Indians commence. Since Mr. Joseph became our delegate Catholic and Protestant institutions here for the education of Indians have received over #50,000, and on the 15th of this month bids will be opened for the erection of an Industrial    Indian    school    for which the'sum of #25,000 has been appropriated by Congress.   For the federal building #52,000; for  the grounds   and   fence   #12,000,  for furnishing building #8,500.   Total for Santa Fe #122,500.   I challenge the Republican party to show that it has expended during its many years of power #1,000 for Santa Fe.   Under Mr. Joseph's able representation we will soon have storage reservoirs, irrigating canals and other improvements badly needed, in NewMexico for its   greater advancement and prosperity.   Soon the rivers like the great Nile will be utalized for the agricultural benefit of the people, Mr. Joseph is now promoting a  bill for the survey of the Rio Grande from Embudo to El Paso at a cost of nearly #50,000 with strong hopes of its success.   This is ' Democracy. Because their representatives were enabled to secure appropriations for experimental purposes from Congress the east advanced in agricultural and mechanical   prosperity.    No sooner is Joseph in Congress than he passed a bill authorizing the expenditure of #15,000 for agricultural experiments and as soon as our leg islature meets and formulates a plan for its disbursement, the commis sioner of agriculture will send an agent to New Mexico to begin work The Republican members of Con gress believe New Mexico to be : howling   wildernes   and  its peo> pie a banditta.  Joseph called the attention of the House to the artesian well system and its importance to our Territory and soon an appro priation of #50,000 will be made for experiments in New Mexico. That's what I call Democracy.   Mariano S. Otero was in Congress and he introduced bills for the settlement of private land claims, and to enlarge the jurisdiction of probate courts-a bill he did not know what it was when he read it-a bill for the care and protection of criminals, which,of couise, referred  to his republican friends(great laughter)He introduced another bill for the relief of the late lamented Archbishop Lamy. as well as a bill for the establishment of an assay office in Santa Fe but neither passed,   in fact he   secured  the passage   of   no   bills. � He  was appointed    a    member* of   the committee on weights and measures while a delegate, and the record shows that he was never present at a meeting of the committee. Although a   member   the records   of   the sessions of congress do not show that he was there.  The only record that we find is that of the sergeant at arms where Otero signs a receipt for his salary. 'Shearing sheep .andpaying herders ten dollars a month were more agreeable occupations to him than looking after the interests of his constituents in the halls of Congress.  No matter whether wool was worth five dollars or twenty cents a pound, the herder got his ten dollars a month.  Compare the record of the two men. Ask your I'selves what has Otero accomplished and then reflect upon what Mr. Jo has secured through his energy and fidelity to duty.  Will you not say, | Address of Nestor Montova. Nestor Montoya next addressed the convention welcoming  to the capital city the distinguished defender of the people of New Mexico. The speaker referred himself to the efficient work performed in behalf of the territory by Hon. Antonio Joseph as compared with the work of all the other Republftqn candidates sent to congress before him, and more especially contrasting the utter inefficiency of the present Republican candidate nominated at the Socorro convention,   He dared the Republicans within his beariug to vote for Oteno and send him to Congress, in that  way avowing   the   infamous charges against our good people made by-flhe infamous "republican minority" in Congress.  He dared them to kiss the. hand that gave the blow,  to nurse the viper that had smirched the   good character and virtue of the people of our territory Finally, he gave a vivid description of the brilliant and harmonious con vention held in Las, Vegas, and of the grand rally and demonstration held in the queen city of the Rio Grande,    Albuquerque,   where   in company   with   the  distinguished delegate he had the  pleasure and honor of addressing the monster rati fication meeting held   at Grant's opera house.

AGENCY AT SANTA FE, N. M-    oversecond naTT. bank Address of J. H.  Crist. J. H, Crist, of Rio Arriba county New Mexico, was the next speaker. He said: Mr. Chairman, ladies,, and gentlemen.   I use in your distinguised presence and in that of your honored guest and Delegate in the  National Congress, with feelings   of profound satisfaction mingled with an abounding, jbuoyant, springing hope.    Profound satisfaction,  be cause I am a Democrat, and am accorded the privilege of standing in the presence and joining hands with the Democracy of the capital city of our Territory, in their grand ra tincation Rally.  I had the   honor of representing in our Congressional Convention, just held at Las Vegas my own county of Rio Arriba, as delegate, as well as the entire county of San Juan, by proxy, and by the courtesy of the county of Santa Fe I am still more highly honored, by an invitation to stand upon this plat form,   among   these   distinguised speakers, and represent those coun ties in this enthusiastic outburst o ratification   of    the   results   of of the convention just held.   Judge Gildersleeve   has  just   reminded you, that    it     was but THE THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK -OF- SANTAPB WM W. GRIFFIN, President. R. J. PALEN, PEDRO PEREA, Vice-President. Cashier.

For further information apply to BROTHBR BOTULPH, President- short while ago that the Republican party in Congress met your appli cations for legislation and aid in the development of the territory, with the statement that New Mexico was nothing but a howling wilderness and its population a lot of banditti and that this was characteristic of Republican treatment of New Mex ico for a quarter of a century past and that not until   the election of Joseph did the territory receive any attention or appropriations of money for internal improvements.   Then let me tell you what kind of a howling wilderness northwestern New Mexico is.   Rib Arriba is now furnishing to the' extent of one hundred and fifty thousand feet of lumber daily, the lumber that is now going into Hie construction of the cities of Pueblo and Denver and especially contributing to the architectural beauty of the "queen" city of the Rockies.   Denver's handsome government building is being built of granite from Rio Arriba quarries and so the northwest is daily contributing from her native riches to the material growth and developement of the great State of Colorado.   And I promise you that somebody will wake up to the fact soon, that this  portion of the "howling, wilderness" is  aj full of howling Democrats as it is of pine-trees-and they will contribute to the political welfare of New Mexico, just asthey now furnish the raw materials for Denver's growth and prosperity, by the re-election of Hon. Antonio Joseph.   The northwest is rich in natural resources, as it is in loyal Joseph Democrats.   On behalf of that section-I greet you honored sir (turning to Delegate Joseph) as I join the Democracy of the-capital city in ratifying your unanimous    renomination    by   acclamation  for   the   high   office which   you   have   so   adorned (Concluded on the 4th page.)
