ALUUQUEKOUE EVENING CITIZEN.
THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN
Published Dally and Weekly.
By The Citizen Publishing Company
W. T. McCREIGHT,
THE AMERICAN AUTOCRAT.
Thinking men long ago concluded that If this country
hall ever lose lt liberties it will be through the Judiciary,
ays an exchange. The encroachments of the courts upon
tho fundamental principles of popular government have
btn'n rapid and marked, and In norno states they nrs pro
ceeding with accelerated speed.
The power conferred upon the courts to undo tas work
if both legislatures and the people Is the kernel of the
danger. This, backed by the power to punlHh whoever may
criticise them In an unfriendly spirit, as for contempt,
make them antagonists of the people when they hssume
4o assail their rights, not only formidable, but al.nost uu
oonquerable. They are the last resort for w hatever comes
-within their Jurisdiction, and if they are without Jurisdic
tion they may usurp it.
There Is no appeal from any wrong they commit. Tiie
Judiciary ia the one department of government that may
Indict, try and convict for real or imaginary offenses
against what It is pleased to terra Its "dignity." The court
may reverse the will of the people oa any project, 9nd the
people have no appeal..
The people of Kansas, through their leglsltors, passed
bill and made an appropriation for an oil refinery. The
court overrides the will of the people by declaring the
legislative enactment unconstitutional. '
The nation at large, through Its representatives and
en a tors In congress, passed an Income tax law. The fed
eral supreme court declared the law unconstitutional, an!
the will of the nation was balked.
The power of the people should be supreme over ev
ry thing else, but our government lacks the method by
which this power of the people may be expressed and ap
plied. OFFENSE OF ENGINEER WALLACE.
Much unseemly and unnecessary comment has been
Indulged In by the public press over the resignation of
John F. Wallace, chief engineer of the Ishmlan canal.
Here Is what he did: Ho had a Job in a country
where there is yellow fever, malaria, high temperature
and low morals; tarantulas, snake bites and funerals
every hour. And there he took orders from men who
knew about as much alout canal building ss a pig does
about logarithms, and who could Issue them while swing
ing in hammocks and breathing God's pure air, the while
the waiter mixed cooling drinks and served them.
Mr. Wallace was offered a better Job. It was more
congenial and carried a higher salary. So he nult. He
imply exercised his right as an American citizen to lay
down one Job and take another, which Is a right dear to
the heart of every free man.
Secretary Taft calls Wallace a "rank deserter," which
1s a pretty tough sort of a name to hitch to any man.
The president accepted the resignation and wrote a
"curt note," which must have hurt like blazes.
And now, so far as officialdom is concerned, John F.
Wallace can go hang.
One wonders how long Mr. Wallace would have been
kept In office had Secretary Taft or the president desired
to dispense with his services, and if patriotism would
nave cut any figure In such an event.
About seven seconds Is the answer just, long enough
to write on a telegraph blank: "You're fired."
It makes all the difference In the world whose ox is
"NO WHITE CHIPS IN THE GAME."
"My dear sir, there are no white chips in this gamm"
was the bit of airy persiflage. which an attorney for one of
Mr. Devlin's coal companies handed out to a. Chicago man
who presented a claim against the Topeka millionaire for
$5,000. - , ,
It may be doubted, says an exchange, whether the
"piker" so-called quite appreciated the exquisite humor
of this way of classifying the small creditors of Banker
Devlin. You see, in this failure everything, aa the "dago
fruiterer would nut it is "grata big." When you come
to remember that when strangers went to Topeka the
very first thing they were told was about the great
wealth of Mr. Devlin that he was worth certainly as much
aa 6 million dollars and probably as much as S mlllolns,
bis high standing in the financial world needs no expla
Now, what right had anybody to have dealings with
uch a Croesus Involving only 5,000? What room was
there for such a bagatelle In the big game Devlin was
playing? Couldn't these "pikers" see that the big, strong
banks were fairly crowding $100,000 loans on Mr. Devlin?
How could they overlook the significant fact that he was
even taking the cautious and conservative Topeka finan
ciers off their feet? You may talk about the tragedy
when the "pikers" are caught for all they have, and the
pity of It all, but can anybody exercise sufficient compas
sion to excuse the stupidity of putting up any "white
chips' in such a game as Devlin played?
BEAUTY IN THE SCHOOLS.
President Eliot's Idea of teaching beauty In the
schools may well enough bo developed without making It
aa obstructive fad.
Eeauly Is no attached frill or fringewotk. It is ao
Important part of the soul of things. It U to education
and to life what the color and the odor are to the rose.
The very best instruction in the knowledge of beauty
is Insensible, and gained while the mini may be actually
engaged in taking in something else. Beauty Is b"st
taught by beautiful surroundings and by Incessant sug
gestion, and these things are actually possible in a city
Today the surroundings of the school child are very
much more beautiful than they were a generation ago.
Good architecture and a little landscape gardening have
replaced the old plain buildings and the old bare grounds.
Pictures, busts and pleasing tlats have succeeded the old
black whitewashed and blackboarded walls.
The harvest of this atmosphere of Improved sugges-
tlon is being reaped In the much easier adaptability of
this generation to beautiful Ideas in industrial art and In
the Immeasurably Increased beauty of the home.
Albuquerque must wait for a better water system
lefore her children can receive much Instruction In the
beauty of plant life and growth.
vent Ion, according to the program of Its projectors, will
frame a state constitution fr t le region, and will present
It to congress next Deccml r f. r action. No gift of clalr
voyanco Id needed to enable persons to see what action
congress will take on that Mmcope proposition. It will
be promptly and emphatically turned down.
A French writer ha rerei.tly been "doing" Amer!ca
says commercialism Is ruining the drama; Mr. Dalrymple,
the Scotchman, says polities destroying municipal in
tegrity. Dr. Washington Gladden Is sure that "tainted
money" Is corrupting tho churches and staining the CBttae
of education and a whole "rat1" of lesser lights are de
claring that "graft" Is po.lutin ; every avocation of life.
Perhaps those are but different symptoms of the one great
evil love of money.
Boardlng Horses a Specialty
The lis Angeles Examiner devotes two whole pages
to an account of the Sanitarium which the associated
fraternities will establish at I.as Vegas, N. M. The article
is illustrated by eight pictures, and the whole write-up
does credit to the Examiner and Justice to the greatest
sanitarium enterprise the world ever saw. The Citizen re
grets that the article is too elaborate for reproduction in
the present condition of Its crowded columns.
President Spencer of the Southern railway told the
country tho other day how the south wrs progressing, one
of the evidence s being that it ws now l-dvorued by 31,000
miles of rullway tracks. Nothing tiore neel be added ex
cept to say that railroad tracks are not laid except where
there are good reasons believing that they will be profitable.
Governor Gienn, of N. Carolina, forgot where be was
"at" on the 4th while making an address to Tammany hall
in New York. "We are living too fast," said he, "spending
money riotously, both as a nation and Individuals, and
are developing a country of thieves and gamblers." The
expression was a little strong but the thought la worth
Dr. E. B. I'errin, owner of tho onyx quarries, forty-five
miles northwest of Prescott, Arizona, has made a contract
with the Ienver Development company to do 180,000
worth of work on them, and other contracts with Chicago
people to take the, entire output. A narrow guage railroad
is to be built from Soligman to the quarries.
THE BEST SIGN OF
A SOUND CONVERSION
.Merchants In England and Wales are happy over the
fact that the great religious revival is causing people to
pay their debts.
Here is a substantial good result of religious
iasm which even tho hardest-headed material
Missionary work in heathen lands makes go
mers for the products of civilization. It has In
recognized that, in a broad way, the dollar in tne mis
sionary box is the best investment business men can make.
And now the English and Welsh merchants are learning
that money given In support of revivalists comes back
multiplied many times.
The mystery of some people's financial Irresponsibil
ity has never been fathomed. They may be the bout of
conscience in every respect but this. Perhaps they never
get a dollar's worth of any commodity without a firm in
tention to pay for It. But somehow they never do pay for
it, and all the while the thought of not paying for it is
harassing and even shocking to them. There is needed an
authoritative psychological study of the respectable, well
Probably no one on earth save a bishop of the Eng
lish church would have been found to object to the revival
which began.ln Wales and Is spreading In England on the
ground that It is causing people to pay their debts. The
bishop of Carlisle in a recent address, expressed bis
scorn of this sort of conversion and Intimated that the
man whose moral sense had not already made him honest
was a doubtful acquisition, under an emotional impulse,
to any reilogious organization. A man, he said, should
be honest up and down and through and through. A "re
ligion of emotion and crocodile tears" might cause the
man who was not thus honest to pay his debts, but It
would hardly transform him. Into a person of real con
The idea of the man who Is as religious out of church
as In It and who never required conversion to prevent his
buying things that he had no serious intention of paying
for is attractive. There are many such men. Yet it is
easily to be fancied that the merchants and shop keepers,
of whatever faith or moral system, are pleased when they
see the revivalists pricking dulled consciences and caus-
ng long standing accounts to be settled.
In spite of the adverse opinion of the bishop of Car
lisle, the commonly-accepted view among level-headed
business men must be that the conversion which causes
'deadbeats' to pay their debts Is a first-rate kind of con
The convert who takes time from his praying to hunt
up and square his accounts may not stand the highest
with the bishop, but he makes a hit with all the rest and
no doubt a harp already tuned awaits him on high.

" The men who have ea K-d the separate statehood con
vention for August 21 at Mimcot-'ce may be building worse
than they know, sas the Globe-lJemocrt. Their project
for a state to comprise the five clvd'.lzed tribes is absurd.
They want the Indian Territory, or the part of it occupied

Oklahoma to also come in separately. The Muscogee con-
Frank A. Vanderllp, formerly first assistant secretary
f the foderal treasury, and now vice president of the
N'atlonal City Hank of New York, Is worried because col
leges do not teach business to their students.
Vanderllp bas been pleading with the university con-
vocation for a university education especially adapted to
men who are to lead commercial lives.
Vanderllp must be accepted as an expert witness on
the subject of business qualifications. Ho baa long been
closely allied with the classes with whom business is a
But the main question is whether the country wants
those classes enlarged. Another question Is whether edu

A lack of business training has never been regarded
as one of tho crying evils of American life. The business
men with whom Vander.lp Is allied seem to be doing well,
even iu tho absence of special university training. Had
they any added advantage of special training they would
possibly be owning the wholo earth, with a fence
The directors of the Natloual City bank, for example,
though they have had uo special university business
training, were able to purchase the New York custom
bouse from the federal treasury on terms that have
amazed and puzzled the couutry. Does Vanderllp hope
that, with special university training, they would be abie
to take over the entire federal treasury on even easie
Had the managers of the Kquitablo bad special unl
vcrsity training would they have succeeded better In
turning tho people's money to their own private use?

has acquired a billion. If specially trained would he)
have acquired a hundred billions?
