DIFFERENT TIMES OF DAY
WHAT IS NEEDED
The following drastic editorial on the life Insurance
officials whose w rong doing has recently bc n made pub
lic, is taken from the Denver Republican, a paper wnich
ia by no means prejudiced against corpora! Ion or the
individual holders of great wea.th. The Rt publican
The three big life insurance companies of New
York, the New York Ufe, the Mutual Life and the Kquit
ble, only average MR per cent In dividends every year,
whli the savings banks of New York pay 3.4 per cent
to their depositors.
The presidents of each of these Insurance companies
riave been receiving linontm a year cash, and each of
them has been assisted by a large array of very costly
The New York savings banks are all managed by
boards or trustees who get no salary at ad.
8o far as known, the savings banks have never had
ny connection with trust companies or syndicates. They .
handle more money than the life insurance companies
nd make all their investments in tne ordinary way, aim
yet they make net earnings nearly three times as large
as those reported by the life Insurance companies.
Why should this be so If the Insurance companies
re properly managed for the sole use and benefit of
the policy holders?
The treasurer of one of these companies, in giving
testimony before the investigating committee of the New
York legislature, the other day, set up the absurd plea
tbat their busin-ss had lecome so large that they could
. not find sufficient opportunities for investment without
going Into partnership with trust companies and syndi
cates of a speculative character.
Put how do the savings banks invest their larger
funds on a much more profitable basis without such
The simple truth Is that the big Insurance companies
in question are honeycombed with the corruption of
The high salaried presidents, vice presidents and oth
er officials and directors share in the profits of the trust
companies and syndicates, and the policyholders foot
the bills and hold the bag.
Stringent legislation for the regulation and control
of the Insurance business must be enacted in every state
to cure this evil and to prevent Its recurrence.
In the meantime every insurance official who has
fcen guilt r of graft should be prosecuted for that crime
and also be made to pay back the money he has filched
from the policyholders.
At luncheon she I like a queen;
At dinner like an empress fair;
At night so smiling and serene
She seems an angel seated there
A creature whom some bnrd of old
Would choose to praise in choicest rhyme.
Alas! oh, youth; could you behold
This se,f same gill at breakfast time.
For smiles cannot endure for aye,
And e'en complexions sometimes fade,
And wavy tresses will not stay
In place without some proper aid.
The dancing linhts a wondrous spell
May weave nt midnight's mystic chime,
Illusions vanish, truth to tell,
Most ruthlessly at breakfast time.
It is evident that there Is some great movement on
foot in the Mojave river valley as a great acreage has
been gobbled up by parties during the past eighteen
months. These lands carry with them water rights to
the flow of the Mojave river. Whether the water is tlit
thing that is desired or whether the land is also needed
1n conjunction is a question that seems to be yet. unset
tied and unknown to the general public. At one time the
water of this stream was talked of for the purpose of
creating a water Fiipply for the City of Los Angeles, but
now that Ixs Angeles has practically secured the waters
of Owens river, there seems no reason for still clinging
to that Idea. Needles Eye.
The following is a calm and candid utterance on the
mutter nf a carnival nicht saturnalia, taken from the
. I-as Vegas Optic:
The Albuquerque Citizen objects to the carniva
night which has coma to be an established feature of the
close of the territorial fair. Indeed, the carnival has in
recent years grown almost to the proportions of an "in
Btltution" without which no week of sports In an Amerl
can city Is considered complete. The objections of The
Citizen, however, are well taken and the Optic hopes that
bo far as Las Vegas Is concerned, the evils which have
erown to such serious proportions in connection with the
Albuquerque fair will be vigorously checked before they
have gained the tolerance of the people of Las Vegas
It cannot be denied that the lleberty of masking on
the streets on gala nights Is perverted Into a license by

New Mexico's Delegate to
Congress Finds Much Cor
respondence on Return.
TALKS ABOUT THE EASTERN
"Patriotism Is the strongest in the western and mid
dle states," says a United States officer In charge of a
naval recruiting station. "Those states give us by far
the largest proportion of recruits."
Te be patriot, then, one must Join the army or navy,
The man who serves six years Is a better patriot than
the man who serves three years. The section of the
country that furnishes the most recruits Is the most pat
riotic. The patriotism of a country is measured, then,
by the ease with which recruits aro obtained for the
army and navy.
What arrant nonsense this is! What utter lnappre-
clation of the true meaning of patriotism! What a false
standard it sets up by which the worth of citizenship is
to be tested!
The need of the nation at present Is not for soldiers
to be in readiness to fight in possible but improbab.e
wars. It is for men who will fight in the battles ot
peace. The greatest enemy of the United States is not
from without, but from within.
The nation, the states, the cities and the towns are
all waging contests with forces which are undermining
the life of the state. These aro contests between civic
righteousness and civic dishoncr; between manhood and
honesty on the one hand and greed and corruption on
the other. These are mighty contest which try the
courage of the bravest hearts and the faith of the most
It lakes patriotism ot a high character to fight these
battles. Hut It Is this kind of patriotism that the country
needs. It is this kind of patriotism that the country
must have if the forces of light are to conquer the forces
of darkness. Without it the repub.ie is doomed. With
it the victory Is sure.
Stnator W. II. Andrews, delegate to
congress from New Mexico, ha re
turned to the territory after an ab
sence of several months. The sena

Senator Andrews says that ne is

right awiiy. The contractors, who
were detained in the east to complete
Jobs already in progress when the con
tract for the Kastern was let, will be

gladly received and the people will be
glad when they aie gone. The road
will then have been finished.

divided his time between New York,

The foreign bondholders of the Pecos Irrigation com
pany have agreed to the sale to the federal government
of the company's big irrigation system in Eddy county
upon the terms suggested by the United States reclama
tion service. What is more, not a single farmer or other
land owner In the lower Pecos valley has refused to take
stock In the association, which Is a condition of affairs
unheard of before in the history of the reclamation serv
ice for there always have been some under other pro
jects who have refused to subscribe or have failed to
agree with the reclamation service. This augurs well
for the future of the lower Pecos valley to which the

the harmless amusements of carnival nights are conse
quently subjected to Insults and abuse at the hands of
those who would he summarily dealt with under normal
conditions. It is this danger which should be most strin
Kently guarded against and unless this can be properly
done, all masking and attendant form of celebration
should be abolished.
Colonization of lands' in the southwest is to receive
from the railroads reaching that section the greatest at
tention ever accorded the Biibject, says the Las Vegas
Optic. The executive committee of the Western Passen
ger association the other day arranged to run cheap home
seekers' excursions in October, November and December
and to follow these with cheap colonist rates in January
and February to accommodate those who desire to come
to this section to remain. The minimum selling rates
from Chicago will be $16.50 for the round trip and the
rates will be in effect to all points In Texas, New Mexico,
Arizona, Indian Territory, Arkansas and Nebraska. The
home seekers' rates will be one-half of the one way rate
plus $2, and the excursions will be run on the first and
third Tuesdays in October, November and December. The
colonist rates for the first and third Tuesdays in January
and February will be 75 per cent of the one-way rates.
For these occasions it would pay Albuquerque to get out
some attractive advertising, getting forth the advantages
of her tributary territory.
The board of supervisors of Yavapai county have
given a franchise of fifty years to N. W. Tarr for the
purpose of constructing and maintaining a telegraph sys
tem. It Is thought that the system will connect with
the long distance system of this county and on to San
Iternardino and Los Angeles. The telephone system of
Prescott is In connection with those of Tucson and th
building of this line will connect the whole territory in
one system. Kingman Miner.
Las Vegas certainly has the sympathy of Allmiiuer
que in the f:ict that the first day of the fair was .spoil
by rain. This city has not forgotten a year ago. when
the whole fair here was well nigh a failure because of
rains and washouts.

Katon is glad to see that Las Vegas magnanimously
furnishes the fair queen for Albuquerque's carnival and
grand ball. We congratulate Albuquerque on this and
also on its spirit of fairness to Its neighbor. This is
really loving thy neighbors as thyself. Vet we art
prouder for Las Vegas, who is Katon's half sister, whilt
Albuquerque is only a cousin, and wish to tender only
our rejoicings that they have such a popular young lady

entire Lewis and Clark pxnosition.
The people from the home city and a
great many from nearby towns as
well, will turn out in great numbers on
that day and it Is expected that the
attendance will break all records, ex
ceeding even that of the Fourth of

A majority of the stores and other
business houses of Portland will close

celebration. There will be no formal
exercises, hut the day will be made
one of general merrymaking.' Every
