It cannot he denied that the letters on New Mexico,
imbllshed by William E. Curtis In the Chicago Record
Herald, are much to he regretted. They have damaged
Mr. Curtis In his reputation as a reputable newspaper
correspondent, for those who know New Mexico as It
really Is, and who have read the letters of Mr. Curtis,
could now no more beileve him under oath. He has
ahown his statements to be totally unreliable, and to all
appearances, Intentionally so.
But the matter of greatest regret Is that his letters
tiave greatly damaged this territory. In that particular,
Senator Beveridge nor even the man Davis, whose orig
inal slanders of this land ani Its people have so often
been reported neither of these can stand at the head
of the Class, since this man Curtis came upon the scene.
In another place in this issue appears an extract from
Jits vicious utterances, the whole article being too volum
inous for quotation. As evidence of the evil his corre
spondence Is causing, the following Is reproduced from
the Kansas City Star:
New Mexico's Shortcomings.
Mr. W. E. tirtis. who has been visiting New Mex
ico, reports diseouragingly on its fitness for statehood.
A large majority of the voters, he finds, can neither read
nor write, and are controlled by a few political leaders
and the priests. The peons vote as they are told and
"nowhere Is universal suffrage such a farce as In New
It cannot he too often pointed out that the connec
tion of Oklahoma and Indian Territory w ith New Mexico
In the statehood bill Is purely artificial, and that the
case of the two eastern territories deserves to be con
sidered on Its merits. To condemn them because of the
defects of the Spanish population of New Mexico is man
Oklahoma and Indian Territory are rapidly develop
ing regions, supplied with an Intelligent and energetic
native population. Their voters have nothing In common
with the peons of New Mexico. Terhaps It is "good poll
tics" to tie up the fortunes of these territories with
those of Arizona and New Mexico. But it Is misleading
to the country as a whole.
There are legitimate grounds for opposing the admis
sion of the two western territories. There are none In
the case of Oklahoma and Indian Territoiy. And these
two prosperous districts ought not to be forced to suffer
lor the shortcomings of its neighbors with whom their
names are coupled.
The Citizen would add that those who form their
views from the Curtis letters are not aware that his
study of New Mexico was from the windows of a palace
Bleeping car, with a brief stop at a few of the larger
towns. In which he confined his search for information to
those who would rather defame the territory than to see
It become a state.
What he doesn't know alout New Mexico would fill
a volume even larger than could be made from the fajse
hoods he has written.
The total of national bank note circulation has now
passed $500,000,000. It stands at the highest point in
the record of national bank history. At the end of July
there was an aggregate of $503,000,000 national bank
notes outstanding. That great total can be compared
with. $240,000,000 of outstanding circulation at the close
of the Spanish-American war. There has thus been an
Increase since the autumn of 1898 of 110 per cent, in
bank note circulation. We have added $46,000,000 to the
circulation in the last nine months alone. Both the great
additions to the note supply and the rapidity with which
the Increase is still going on give rise to speculation as
to whether or not the increase is in response to a legltl
mate demand for more currency or whether it is to' be
attributed to some fault of the National Banking Act.
The Kansas City Times has the following to say on
the death of Archbishop Chapelle, the former distinguish
ed New Mexico prelate:
The death of Archbishop Chapelle is a particularly
mournful incident of the yellow fever scourge In New
Orleans. The late prelate was a great churchman and
a great citizen. His loss at any time would have been
keenly felt by the country, and especially by the city in
which he lived and labored; but his removal by yellow
fever, which he was Just preparing to fight with all the
energies and Influences at his command, seems strangely
ironical. When the archbishop returned to New Orelans
a few days before he was stricken, he announced his
intention to co-operate to the fullest extent of his ability
with all the agencies employed "to stamp out yellow fever.
Much confidence was placed In him lecause of his in
fluence among the Italians, nearly all of whom were
communicants of the Catholic church. He had returned
to the ctiy to devote himself to the Btrlcken and to meas
ures for checking the disease, and his death, therefore,
was the fruit of his devotion.
Archbishop Chapelle was among the most disting
uished and capable of the high prelates of the Roman
Catholic church in this country. Aside from his regular
promotions,' he was singularly honored in being named
as papal delegate to the Philippines, where he rendered
valuable service to the country as ell as to his church.
He also gave special service of a distinguished character
in Cuba. Although a Frenchman by birth, Archbishop
Chapelle was a loyal American.
By Edmund Vance Cooke,
What are the terms which cause these squirms
And seem to ask our pity?
What things are these the Japanese
Are asking M. Wlt-te?
O, siime regard them harsh and hard
And some Insist they're easy,
And some suppose they're such a dose
As make the stomach queasy.
IV) they demand the czar shall stand
In front of the mikado
And there kotow and bob and bow,
Eschewing all bravado?
And while the mob shall wateh him Ub,
With ludicrous solemnity.
The Japs, perhaps, like wily chaps,
Will grab the gate-Indemnity!
Would they arrange an interchange
Or well "domestic duties;"
The grooms, perhaps, to be the Japs,
The brides the Russian beauties?
The DOT to show (some spell it "dough")
Before each ceremony.
Ami if divorce ensue, of course,
The Japs get alimony!
Or would they make each Russian take
Out "Mutual" insurance,
The Japs to be the company
And hold the funds in durance?
Then when in need of fun, or feed.
Or fireworks, forts, or fences.
They'd simply spill It from the till
And charge it to "expenses."
Some say the Russ is blusterous.
Some say the Jap Is breezy;
Some say they're hot, som say they're not,
Buth rather cold and wheezy;
The terms, some hint, are hard as flint;
Some say they're mild and cheesy,
But we all know that time will show
They're only Japaneasy!
SOME STORIES WISE
AND SOME OTHERWISE
An Awkward Situation.
Congressman Morrcll, of Philadelphia, said in the
course of an address to national guardsnun:
"As colonel of the Third Regiment of Pennsylvania,
I once took part In an odd and amusing episode.
"My regiment was marching down Broad street, in
ihe van of an immense and magnificent parade, when,
near Walnut street, It became necessary to push the
people back a little. The ropes had broken at this point
and the people, quite unintentionally, encroached on the
line of the parade.
"I assigned a handful of young privates to help the
police handle the crowd, and one private, stationed near
me, I kept my eye on. He got everybody back except a
fat man. This person did not move.
" 'Private,' said I, 'put that fat man back.'
' ".'He says he can't get back, the crowd Is pushing
so,' the private answered.
"'Put your musket butt In his chest,' said I, 'and
force him back. You are the stronger.'
"'Yes,' Bald the private, 'I know I'm the stronger,
but he's the foreman of our shop." ' Cincinnati Enquirer,
Butter From Cocoanut Oil.
Dr. Henner, a German scientist, has been experi
menting with cocoanut oil, and finds that it makes a
very satisfactory article of butter. It contains seven per
cent, of soluable acids namely, butyric acid and caprlc
or decylic acid, which gives the butter a pleasant aroma
and savor, making it taste something like a hazelnut.
This butter will keep fifteen or twenty days before show
ing any acid reaction, and sustains many tests of true
butter, for which It Is a better substitute than oleomar
garine, and can be produced much more cheaply. Pos-
erlty will face a scarcity of milk and tho butter made
therefrom, so rapid Is the Increase of poulation and bo
restricted in comparison Is the vallable area for pastur
age and perhaps the cocoa tree may come In as the most
useful auxiliary of the cow anywhere to be found. Colo
rado Springs Telegraph.
' ' The Denver News gives some very wise advice when
it says that whatever may be said of other forms of In
vestment, the wisely directed purchase of real estate
is the safest of all, and Is especially dcesirablo for per
sons of small means whose employment is such that they
have little or, no opportunity to keep themselves inform
ed concerning the many Influences which affect, tho mar
ket prices of other forms of security. Tho man with a
few hundred or few thousand dollars who buys a piece
of real estate has something that will not run away. It
will not vanish between days. He can see it and stand
upon it if ho will. It is less susceptible to deterioration
from the sins and follies of others than any other Invest
ment. It will afford him a home, or, if purchased with
ordinary care and wisdom, will return him an Income at
least as great, and often greater, than can be drawn from
any other reasonably safe Investment.
When Japan dispert.es the army of I.lnevltch, of
which there is no doubt, and captures the entire eastern
coast of Siberia, which she can do at her leisure,
terms of peace will be more exacting than now.
Brittany Marriage Feast.
Serignac, in Brittany, was the scene of a great mar
riage feast on the occasion of the marriage of the
mayor's daughter. It was an al fresco meal, partaken of
by 1,000 guests, who ate the good fare provided for them
in trenches which had been specially dug for their ac
commodation. For the feast, seventeen oxen and a num
ber of sheep, pigs and calves were slaughtered. The
drink comprised 300 barrels of cider, not to mention
numerous bottles of wine, liquors and beer. The meal
lasted four hours and a half. A number of Breton
bards, attired in native costumes, attended and sang bal
lads during the feast. The fetes were resumed the fol
lowing day. The fragments of the feast were distrib
uted to the poor of the district. The beggars of the
locality had a good time. The oldest member of the
fraternity was signally honored. He led off the dance
on the village green with the bride. Selected.
Demand for White Stockings.
"Slocking, stocking, who's got tho white stocking?"
s the cry on Washington avenue in the wholesale dis
rict, for, strange as it, may seem, there are none to be
had there, and the factories are away behind In their
nlers. White stockings have certainly come into their
wn again, said a well known Washington avenue whole
sale dealer. "Every woman in the country decided to
wear white shoes, and, ot course, each pair or shoes re-
quirod at least two pairs of stockings. The factories
were not prepared for the unparalleled demand, and con
sequently we had none. Many of the retailors who laid
in a supply Fti'.l have them, bin there Is a possibility
that there will be a time before long when Belinda will
lltera ly bave nothing to wear in the way of white stock-Inns."-

There are many vacant places overgrown with weeds
and unsightly to the eye, which could be mowed with
benefit. There are many places In the streets where
ruts and hollow places abound, where the crown of the
road bed has become depressed and the sides of the road
bed elevated. It seems that these defects In the streets
could easllly le repaired and at but a nominal cost.
Iu a number of towns which this welter knows, the
street commissioner tan almost always secure a good
sited force from the city and county Jails, and with
them tho street work is largely done. If this example
can be followed In Albuquerque, and the work shall be
undertaken in time, it seems to The Citizen that the
streets of this city could be very much beautified and
improved by the time the Fair comes round.

A young iady, whose beauty Is equal to her lilunt
ness in conversation, was visiting at a house where other
guests were assembled, among them the eldest son of a
rich manufacturer. The talk turned on matrimonial
squabbles. Said the eligible party:
"I hold that the correct thing for the husband Is to
begin as lie intends to go on. Say that the question is
one df smoking. Almost Immediately I would show my
Intentions by lighting a cigar and settling the question
"And I would knock the thing out of your mouth,"
cried the Imperious beauty."
"I)o you know," rejoined the young man, "I don't
think you would be there." Chicago Journal.
