TWO HEART CHANGES.
The Citizen is much p. cased t i find that the Morning
Journal has pome round to the const rvntive position on
the police question, which this paper lias held from the
l. irinninir lf llll nro9itll 1 1 i S I ' 1 1 S S i 1 1 Tl ll HOW SilVS t.Klt
"the responsibility for the system rests upon the people
ami not upon the police, who are merely instruments for
carrying out the public will." This change of heart on the
part of iho morning paper Is peculiarly gratifying be
cause It is so complete and eniplia'ic that It lias been a
'matter of general talk in the town today. Then, too, it is
the only right ami conservative position. This The Citi
scn saw at the beginning. a"1' hence adopted it.
Hut the Morning Journa has experienced n change
of lwart on nnother point, even more radical and com
rdote than that ahout the police, and one which The C'iti
aen cannot endorse.
It will he remembered that when the water franchise
extension was a live Issue before the people, because The
Citizen opposed it the Journal lew-led its entire battery
of condemnation upon us and tried to blow us out of the
water. It declared times without number thai The C!t'.
acn was reflecting on the dignity, integrity, ubi.ity, hon
esty, of the city council; and though the charge was abso
lutely without foundation, it constituted about the only
thing the Journal did or could say on the ijuestlon for
How Is it now? Alas the mighty has fallen: Not
only b ( s the Journal charge one member of the council,
a prominent young business man, with 1 e'ng a "j''l.y
fish," but says In bo many words, 'this mm has lied."
That Is pretty strong in the way of refYcti m. Hut that
Is not all. Speaking of the whole council the Journal
"Seems strange the city council could not draft an
ordinance that would entail punishment for ilie crime of
forgery, but would have to create a s c ud ordinance
making a man commit perjury in order to punish him for
If that isn't "reflect Ion," pure and un defiled, pray
what is it? When considering this radical change of
heart, The Citizen feels to ask wi;h tin late limemed
Artimus Ward, "Why is this thus, and what is the cause
of this thnsncss?"
and notary by the piece or by the year? Hut, realty, what
pood could an affidavit do? When a reporter gives the
purpot of an Interview with ft fellow townsman, his only
purpose Is to give It as he remembers It or understood It
at the time. If a difference of opinion afterwards arises
between the Interviewer anil the Interviewed, as to Just
exactly what was said, each must trust to his memory,
anil all the sworn statements ei'lier may sign cannot give
any additional force to the original statements.
Dogberry was right when he declared that "compari
sons are odorous." If is believed that the verity of that
apothegm wili now be freely admitted by Mr. Illdgway
of Tveryboily's Magazine, who rot on the nerves of Wil
liam Travels Jerome of New York at the recent Knife
and Fork club banquet in tins city, by putting Thomas
YV. l.awson in the class with Washington and Lincoln,

JOINT STATEHOOD BILL.
Iast Sunday Arthur W. Dunn pnblb bed a long ar
ticle In the big issue if the Washington Post, giving his
views of what wi 1 be done In the next congress, and The
Citizen gives below what he has to say on the joint state
hood question. Mr. Dunn Is the representative ot the As
sociated Press an the floor of the United Slates senate.
He does nothing else but look after news matters there,
and Is the best posted man in America on i;i.i;t ts of na
"When ttin Inst conirress adiourned the Joint state
hood bill died with it, but the subject has h en so thor
oughly discussed for two years past that there seems
to be very little to say. The impression prev I s that two
states will be admitted. Oklahoma and Indian Territory
will be jointed together as one state, and New Mexico
and Arizona, in spite of all opposition that has been de
veloped against the admission of these two territories as
one state, will form another state.
"It would not be surprising if these two new states
are admitted without very much delay. It Is believed that
the house will pass a bill speedily, and that the senate
committee is ready to report thbill as soon as it comes
over from the house. It remains to see how long the op
position to the joint statehood bill will hold out before
there Is consent to the admission of new states.
"Intimations were made at the close of the last ses
sion by some of the most pronounced advocates of sep
arate statehood for New Mexico and Arizona, that they
would not fight a Joint statehood bill in the coming com
gress. In fact Senator Bailey of Texas, who was one of
the strongest advocates of separate statehood for New
Mexico and Arizona, announced on the floor of the senate
that he would not make any further effort to prevent the
union of these two territories, because the opponents of
the union stood out so long against the admission of Ok
lahoma and Indian Territory as one state, an act which
he considered a great wrong upon the people of those two
"It Is lelieved that other opponents of joint state
hood will join Senator Bailey, and the admission of four
territories as two states wi.l be accomplished without
very much delay."
' THE MIDDLE WEST.
There are fifteen states which are sometimes called
the "Middle West." They are Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan,
Indiana. Wisconsin, Illinois. Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri,
Arkansas, Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and
These states have shown a recent growth truly mar
velous. They are all agricultural states, but their growth
and prosperity are not confined to agriculture by any
means. In 1880 the great manufacturing states of New
York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Jersey turn
ed out 53 per cent of the finished products of manufact
ure in the United States. In ISbO these states produced
only 43 per cent of the manufactures, while the Middle
West, which had produced only 30 per cent in 18S0, fur
nished 37 per cent. Since 1900 the growth of the section
In this particular has been even more remarkable than
before, the exact figures, however, being unobtainable.
In agricultural advancement, the Middle West makes
a most marvelous showing. In the two decades from
1880 to 1900, the value of farm lands In the firteen states
underwent an increase of f 3,fiS!'t,00n,OuO, or JT9 per cent
of the total increase of the United States.
In the value of domestic animals, there was an in
crease of $1,547,327,127, or 02 per cent of the total in
crease of the United States.
In the value of farm products, the increase was $!U9.
430.SC3, or 67 per cent of the entire increase of the United
In the banking field a most remarkable showing Is
also inakt; by the fifteen states. In l'.'ot the banking
capital reached a total of r'13.5o0.ouo, (,r 37 per cent of
the entire banking capital of tho United States. The in
dividual deposits of the same year were $l:,717,ouu,immi, or
28 per cent of all tho money deposited in the banks of the
In the old days, yellow fever was a mysterious terror.

There were marvelous instances of sacrifice and
heroism, but they were exceptional. They only einphasiz

of nearly all ot us.
The dead, deserted by friends and Kindred, were by
nubile employes thrown into rude boxes or wrapped in
sheets and carted off to burial at dead of night. Then

Such was the force of old-time superstition.
Such was the weakness, the cowardice, the degrada

Today we know that yellow fever is not contagious
not even infectious, but conies through mosquitoes. The

The terror which men have blindly deserted their for

of humanity hang.
The terror of tho old day fed itself by fear the epi

Nevada lias been the cudple with which New Mexico
has often been beaten out of her rights to statehood. Sht
was the standing illustration, used by coiiKressnieu and
Bcnators, to show the folly of making new states with
small populations. With a population that never exceed
ed 62.tb0, the number of her people declined to J!".K-.".
Hut Nevada' will see a better day. She will never show
another reduction In population, say her olllcials and
newspapers. The recent gold discoveries and the begin
ning of irrigation on a large scale are expected to start
Nevada on the upward turn. In the calendar year 194
the state made a handsome gain In Its gold output over
the precedes twelve mouths. New diggings have been
opened in the past half year which will count in the total
of li"6, and bring this aggregate above any recent record

The United States government Is playing the gener

authorities have spent fl 5,000 filling up the rixiuis at
Portsmouth to be used ab conference chambers. Your
Undo Sam never dots things niggardly and that's one
reason why the people are so proud of him.
Has the Morning Journal gone Into the affidavit husl
' ness for a permanency? And will it employ Its affiant
rti'hind Russian disaster stands the Russian peasant.
The odleial corruption that permeates the structure of
Russian government points back to the Initial mistake
of would be empire builders. The Russians have never
had a highly developed agriculture, and the men who
have formed Russian policy for centuries have not learn
ed that a thrifty, prosperous and contended rural class is
the only source of enduing national strength. The man
who tills the soil in Russia has always been neglected.
Tho staggering weigh of burdensome taxation and cruel
extortion h:a fallen ultimately on bis patient shoulders.
Short sighted, y reedy and corrupt landlords, olllcials and
churchmen have preyed on him for centuries. IHiring the
time that Russia has built great cities, established manu
factories and expended vast sums on engineering woiks
intended to develop the resources of Russia and Ftrength
i n the empire, she has done nothing to increase the elli
clency and relieve the misery of the Russian peasant.
About the time that the Japanese serf was made a
'ami -owner, the Russian serf was invested with the mis
erable freedom of an oppressed tenant. Under the old
conditions it was to tl:u master's interest to provide tin:
-erf with suitable food and shelter, but the grant of free
ilmn trimst'erri d responsibility from the landlord's shoul
der to tiio.-e of the tenant. The landlord no longer saw
pioflt in providing food nnd shelter for these people. -The
peasant must now pay taxes and pay rent, and yet he
eouid buy neither laud nor home. To those burdens he
has. through his own ignorance, added the danger of
starvation, by impoverishing tlte soil from which he must
get his living.
After the defeat of the battle of t lie Sea of Japan, a
St. Petersburg newspaper admitted that victory rested
with the man behind the gun. ltut ultimately In this war
victory will rest with tho man behind tlio hoe.
The agrarian policy of the Japaneso statesmen, at
the beginning of their progressive era, showed that they
recognized the fundamental Importance of a thrifty, pros
perous and Independent agricultural class as the founda
tion of national strength. Short. y after tho enthrone
ment of the emperor In l&Gtl, the central government as
sumed the title to all tho land previously divided Into
fiefs under feudal barons, and Inaugurated a new land
system under which each tiller of the soil should acquire
tlt.e to tho piece of land his ancestors had cultivated as
serfs. The buying prico was to be paid In St) equal an
nual Installments and tho purchaser was meantime to be
exempt from direct taxation. This great reform reaches
;;o,(iimi,000 rural Japanese, or two-thirds of the total Japa
nese population. It is on this deep and broad foundation
that Japatioso statesmen have erected tho subsequent
military structure that has surprised and awed tho world
and humbled Russia,
