WATER WORKS ANSWERED.
The water organ It still yelling for "facts, figures and
estimates," upon which The Citizen made Its statement
that an up to date water plant could be Installed in Albu
querque for approximately $75,000. This paper pave its
authlrlty for the statement when it was published the
first time, and has given It a number of times since.
Tho statement was not made upon Inures and esti
mates. The Citizen or any one connected with It is not
an expert water engineer, neither has this paper belonged
to people engaged for e.even years In selling five cent
water to Albuquerque consumers for thirty and thirty-five
cents, nor has It asked that such an outrageous burden
sbouid for the lne(U of Its owners be fastened upon the
city for thirty-five years to come. The Citizen has no
pract cal acquaintance with water matters, except the
paying of its monthly bills.
lUnee, The Citizen s statement was not based on "fig
ures and estimates." In fact it was not The Citizens
statement at all In the beginning. It appeared in an Inter
view with Colonel Justro, a man largely Interested in Albu
querque enterprises, and who having estab.lshed an up
to date water plant In Bakersfleld, Cal., In opposition to
an out of date plant, knew what he was talking about. The
practical experience or a man like Colonel Jastro is worth
more than the paid for estimates of any expert.
The water organ, fighting for the interest of its own
ers, tr: to throw doubt ou The Citizen's statement by
ay'lUK iuu a:; far a 't knows Colonel Jastro never made
tho statements attnouied to him. If everything the Jour
nal doesn't know is to be considered false there would be
very little truth left In the world. The editor of The
Citizen himself took the interview, himself wrote it out.
and subsequently submitted the manuscript to Colonel
Jastro, who approved it. He was in the city when it was
published, and several of his representatives have been
here Blnce. That tho statements of the interview were
not absolutely accurate, neither Colonel Jastro nor his
representatives have claimed; but the water orpnn evi
dently would deny the law and the prophets if thereby
they might secure that deferred payment to the Journal
When the water organ says that The Citizen knew
Colonel Jastro's statement to be false ever. time it pub
lished It, it certainly Is going very far in its blind and stu
pid fight to unioad the Water Supply company's worn out
plant on the city.
AS TO CHINESE EXCLUSION.
There is a good deal of misunderstanding as to the
real facts of the Chinese exclusion act. there is only one
reason why this country discriminates against the Chi
nese, says the San Francisco Chronicle. It is that so very
few of a desirable class seek entrance into this country,
much less desire to make the United States their per
manent habitation. Almost all of them are of the coolie
class, wlding to work for much less than Am rican labor
en can afford to accept, sending their money nouie every
month, and adding nothing to the growth oi u s country
In any war.
Experienced Inspectors declare that even of those
who seek entrance under the limitations of the exclusion
law, on the ground that they are educators, scientist
or are otherwise entitled to exemption from the law,
many are found, upon Investigation, to be merely coolies
coached for the purpose of evasion.
The class that the exclusion act keeps out is distinct
Ively detrimental to this country. , For this reason China
has no good ground to retaliate against this country. Am
ericans who go to China are not of a class corresponding
to the Chinese who come to this country.
There is a very strong suspicion, to put it mildly, that
most of the recent agitation against exclusion has been
- conceived,- engenedered- and promoted by railway 7 and
steamship companies that covet the business that would
result from the repeal of the exclusion law, and also that
the boycott movement In China is a direct result of this
artificial agitation.' Aside from more or less evidence In
the case, the theory that the railway and steamship com
panies are behind the agitation Is entirely plausible be
cause It harmonize with their policies in other affairs.
But there is little danger that the bars will be put
down. The reason for keeping them up are too 6trong.
And as for the boycott, if China, as a government, really
encourages this policy, the United States can go to Japan
lor most everything it now buys in China. And there
would be a particular reason for doing this In view of any
Ingratitude that China might show for all that the United
States has done for the preservation of its territorial and
THE HOME-COMING OF THE SEA KING.
One of the greatest of the sea kings from Jason to
Togo has just had his ashes deposited on the soil of bis
borne land. Almost as many countries had a connection,
at one time and another, with Paul Jones as there were
cities which claimed the honor of being Homer's birth
place. He was born in Scotland, he fought for the Ameri
cans in the war of independence, he commanded a fleet
In the French navy In the war against England, again he
returned to the American service, and then he held a high
command in the Russian navy, after which he went to
France, where he died in poverty just as the Bourbon
monarchy of Louis XVI. was being replaced by the first
republic. Such is the epitome of John Paul Jones as given
ty the Globe-Democrat.
But It was as an American that Paul Jones won the
fame by which history knows him. America has been
alow in honoring this earliest of her naval heroes. Wash
ington thanked him In the most eulogistic letter the fath
er of his country ever wrote about anybody. Congress
awarded him a gold medal, though Washington vainly
urged upon that body some more substantial recognition
than this. He rcelved swords, letters of thanks from
Louis XVL and the French government. But by both
Amrica and France he was forgotten in his closing days.
France, in the throes of the volcano which extirpated the
Bourbon regime and set up the republic, was too busy to
think of the hero of the Bonne Homme Klchard. America,
Itself poor and obscure at the time, and In danger of at
tack from more than one quarter in Europe, had no time

that the fear of exposure Is more potent than appeals to

HE IS AT THE END
OF THE TRAIL
The water Journal still has its gali with It, and this
morning's Issue oneo more attempted to spray The Citi
zen with the Journal's excess of bile. The fallacies and
falsehoods of the water organ have so often been exposed
hy The Citizen that the task has ceased to be interesting.

135 FOR TEACHING
THAN STREET JWlEFIXG
Some figures have Just been collected and published,
upon good authority, which ought to make all public-spirited
Americans blush with shame.
In New Haven, Conn., one of the country's most prom
inent seats of learning, there are school teachers getting
only $300 a year, while the lowest pay given street sweep,
ers is $530.
Street sweeping is a worthy occupation, deserving of
i comfortable living. "Clean. iness," the world has long
iieen abmonlshed, "is next to godliness." But the street
sweeper requires no special talents or training. His
character need not be such as to exert an influence for
vjood mentadty and morals upon the rising generation. A
pull at the polls is the only qualification commonly re
quired. That the street sweeper should be put above the
school teacher on the pay roll, In the shadow of one of
the greatest colleges In the world, shows a strange incon.
sistency in a people who make of education a fetich.
Unfortunately, New Haven does not stand alone.
The figures show that Chicago, Washington, Coluni
bus, Ga., and Meridan, Miss., are the only cities in the
United States where the minimum pay of school teachers
is higher than the minimum pay of street sweepers.
., We do a lot of bragging about the common school
system of this country. We are very proud of our general
education. We like to think and to say that our learning
is Illuminating the remotest points of the earth.
But there is not so much complacent satisfaction for
self-respectiHg people in the fact that these great results
have been brought about not turough our own liberality,
but through the sacrifice and self-denial of the thous
ands of noble men and women who glee their trained
minds, their high character, their whole lives, to the up
lifting of our children, and get but a bare pittance.
High talents and lori training are required to teach
school talentii and training that if applied In a more
selfish occupation would command rich returns.
The school teacher accepts a self-sacrifice that is un
appreciated and wholly uncalled for.
The prosperous and fair-minded American people
ought to be ashamed to permit it.
There may be many reforms needed In this land, but
none that would more advance justice and Increase our
self-respect as a people than the elevation of the school
teachers above the level of street sweepers and the paying
of salaries commensurate with their high services.

NEW WAY OF ADVERTISING.
The state of Nebraska, which has an interesting dis
play In the palace of agriculture aud horticulture at the
Lewis and Clark exposition, has adopted a novel method
of exploiting Its resources, by means of free blograph lec

distinct and wonderfully true to life. The lecture room is
filled at every performance.
The scenes are of the every day sort, and their charm
Is due to this fact. Different pictures are thrown on the
screen at different hours of the day, and most of them
depict farm scenes. For example, a series of pictures
