Akp hath its victories, even in Huston. The Oslcrinn
theory hoa been given another Jolt, and It remained for
thi KK-tacU'(l town on the Hcashoro boundary of Massa
chusetts to deliver the Mow.
Cyrus You hi;, who, has liitrlicd base hall so many
years that the mini! of the present generation runs not to
the contrary, has ust performed the feat of striking; out
fifteen batsmen of an opposing nine that represented the
pink of perfection in the National league. He id t he ol
posing players down with two me asly hits in nine Inn
ings. In this world everything noes l.v comparison, Pcr
haps, after all, Cyrus Voting lias just attained flowering,
If not perpetual manhood. Hubert Fulton was forty-two
when he perfected the Clermont, the first vessel that
navigated the Hudson. Josi-pli Hopkinson was forty
ifiht when he wrote the words of "Hail Columbia," and
he did it in two hours. At the age of forty-four Hichard
Jordan Galling invented the revolving battery gun, but
what Is it compared with the revolving pitching arm of
the wonderful Cyrus Young? The late Mark Hanna was
Tifty-nine before he took up politics; David Bennett Hill
bad rounded out his forty-eighth birthday before he utter,
ed the single sentence that made him famous; Mrs. Car
rie Nation lived fifty years before she shattered the mir
ror of a damp emporium of liquid Joy. Even Chauncey
Depew had lived almost the allotted three pcore years
and ten before it was discovered that he was on a life
Hut reverting to Cyrus Young, let us not forget that
a kindly Father Time has preserved him for us from the
stone age. As the Inventor, protector and eminent ex
ponent of the art of hurling a leathery globe through the
air and imparting to It a mystic twist that causes It to
ascribe parabolas, serpentine gyrations and deceptive in
versions, he looms on the base ball horizon like a light
house In the fog. He is a seventy-year wonder and a Joy
Whether Cyrus Young Is ninety-and-nine or one hun
dred and nine matters not. Sufficient unto the day that
he Is. Ixmg may he wave that good right arm of his, and
may he forever and ever mow down the opposing bats
men even as Father Time, with his sickle keen, mows
down the Osiers and the other cheerless advocates of the
theory that men grow old and rust and decay.
The Financial World makes this start ing statement :
"The country is facing almost a famine in spot supplies
of copper, although the smelters are working overtime,
and are shipping everything without storing a pound.
They also export continuously. That copper prices will
tsoon react is hardly to be believed unless new copper
mines of enormous richness are opened. The world pro
duction of copper from July 1, 1904, to July 1, 1905, Is es
timated at l,4J5,0(tt,iMlo pounds, of which the North Am
erican continent (United States and Canada) furnished
nearly two-thirds. The consumption during this time
amounts to nearly 1.473,000,000 pounds, showing a short
age of 40,000,000 pounds. How enormous the copper con
sumption is growing Is evidenced by the fact that the in
crease from 1901 to 1905 amounts to 507,000,oou pounds,
or one-third. And the consumption is rapidly Increasing,
for this Is the age of electricity, which consumes copper
as rapidly as the age of steam consumed coal. In a not
far distant future, we may be confronted with a real cop
per famine and see all copper stocks, back of which there
is no wind and water, advance rapidly."
AH HUNDRED YEARS
The New York Evening Post has found an American
parallel to th recent disturbances In Japan over the oN
noxious peace treaty. It says:
An Instructive parallel may he found In events that
took place not more than peven blocks from the site of
the Evening Post building. On July 18, 1795, a mass
meeting was called to protest against the treaty which
Jay had Just negotiated with England. While the speak
ing was under way, an enthusiastic band, which had been
burning the treaty at the Battery, came marching up
Broadway, headed by the French and American flags
and Joined the assembly.
At about the same time Alexander Hamilton began
to speak in favor of the treaty- and urged adjournment.
Stones were thrown at him from the now turbulent crowd
and one of them struck him on the forehead. Thus 110
years ago an American secretary of the treasury enjoyed
the same enviable experience at the hands of his excited
countrymen as the Japanese premier and for very Blmilar
Jay himself was burned in effigy at Boston and Phlla
phia, and in the former city a federal editor's offices were
attacked, as were those of the Kokumin Shimbun, It
must be remembered, of course, that most of the demon
strations here were made before the treaty had been rati;
fied, and if the senate had been sufficiently impressed
by the popular hostility It might still have been defeat
They cannot fairly be compared, therefore, to out-
nrrrsM over an acl virtually completed and beyond reca'l.
Yet the records shnw that the imaginary need for a c.v
ond ratification by the house of representatives was here
used as a pretext for prolonging the demonstrations,
much as the equally visionary hope of an Imperial re-
"fusal to ratify is given as justification for the Japanese

WHAT WONDEROUS CHANCR A
SMILING GIRL CAN MAKE
From Ycuth't Companion.
The wind was east and the chimney smoked,
And the old brown house seemed dreary.
For nobody smiled and nobody joked.
The young folks grumbled and the obi folks croak
ed They had come horn chilled and weary.
Then opened the door and a girl came In,
Oh, she was hommely very!
Her nose was pug and her cheek was thin
There wasn't a dimple from brow to chin
But her smile was bright, and cheery.
She spoke not a word of the cold and damp
Nor yet of the gloom about her;
Hut sho mended the fire and lighted the lamp,
And she put on the p. ace a different stamp
From that which it had without her.
Her dress (which was something In sober brown
And with dampness nearly dripping)
She changed for a bright, warm, crimson gown,
And she looked so gay when she came down
They forgot the air was nipping.
They forgot that the house was a dull old place
And smoky from base to rafter.
And gloom departed from every face
As they felt the charm of her mirthful grace
And the cheer of her happy laughter.
Oh, give me the girl who will smile and sing
And make all glad together!
To be plain or fair Is a lesser thing,
Hut a kind, unselfish heart can bring
Good cheer in the darkest weather.

WHAT IRRIGATION DOES FOR
TTE LAND OF EGYPT
From Political Science Quarterly.
At the great exhibition at St. Iuls last year there
was to be seen a large scale model of eight miles of the
Nile valley in the neighliorhood of Mlnieh from the des
ert on the one side to the desert on the other. It Is an
admirable demonstration of all the forms of irrigation at
present in use In Egypt.
First there is the Nile itself with Its high berm or
bank; then the perennially Irrigated lands about the
Ibrahimlyah canal, dating from the lime of Ismail; then
the lands most lately converted to perennial irrigation on
the most approved modern methods by Sir W. Carstln, In
anticipation of the increased summer supply from the
reservoir; then the Hahr Ytistif canal which feeds the
Fayoutn; and lastly, bordering on the desert, the remain
ing basin lands.
These last will probably never be converted. They
contain the poorest soil and stand in great need of the
annual inundation, and they also form a great fortifica
tion against the sands of the western desert, which under
the influence of the prevailing west winds have a strong
tendency to encroach on the cultivated ground.
It would be easy to quote a multitude of figures to
prove the marvelous Increase of material, prosperity
which has resulted from scientific Irrigation. Whether
we look at returns of revenue, of exports and Imports,
of railway traffic, or the numerous other Indications by
which the prosperity of a nation 'is gauged In figures, we
find the same stAry of expansion. , -
The national debt Is being steadily diminished, and
Instead of verging on bankruptcy the country suffers
from having to buy back Its own stock at a premium In
spite of reductions In the rate of interest. Nor is all
this appearance of prosperity delusive. The wealth of
the country Is not monopolized by a few Individuals own
ing huge estates, while the mass of the population are
sunk in poverty and slavery. Great as are the sums
which have been spent upon the essential irrigation
works out of annual revenue, they have not been wrung
fr6m the people by oppressive exaction.
Irrigation has been the first great principle of Brit
ish administration, ImMiand in hand with it has gone the
principle of low taxation. Year by year there has been
some remission, some lightening of the burden. And
this is the most remarkable, because until 1899 Egypt
had upon her hands a troublesome war, and since then
has had to bear the greater part of the cost of the admin
istration of the. Soudan. Sidney Peel.
And Heartily Endorse Joint
Statehood for New Mexico
SELECTIONS MADE FROM
PRESS OF SOUTHWEST
MEETING WAS HELD AT GALLUP
. t .
Gallup, N. M., Oct. 15. Saturday
night, in accordance with a. call Issued
by the local Joint Statehood commit
tee, the republicans of McKinley coun
ty met at the Odd Fellows' Hall, for
the express purpose of electing a com
mitteeman to v piesent this county in
tho territorial executive Joint state
hood commit t o of the league. lxng
before the appointed time the hall was
filled with repu blicans from every pre
cinct in the county. The announce
ment that th' re was to be a Jointure
meeting had n;oused great enthusiasm
all over McKinley county, and when
the meeting opened to take up busi
ness in hand tho hall was filled to
standing room only.
John C. Spears was elected to tho
chair, a secretary was chosen and the
reason for calling the meeting was ex
plained. Nominations for committee
man were called, and Alexander
Howie, a staunch republican, and pres
ident of the Caledonian Coal company,
was unanimously elected as the re
publican choice to represent this coun
ty In the great league.
After the election of the committee
man was announced, Mr. Bowie asked
Tor the sentiment of the meeting on
the statehood question. The chair, on
motion, called a standing vote; and
every man in the hall ,with one ex
ception, arose and voted straight for
joint statehood for New Mexico and
Arizona. While Mr. Howie, will be un
instructed as to what action he shall
take in any league meetings he shall
attend, he was given a clear under
standing of what the republicans of
McKinley county want in the state
hood line, and he was emphatically in
formed by the practically unanimous
vote that they were solid for Jointure.
As the joint statehood movement is
non-partisan, the secretary was in
structed to inform the chairman of the
democratic cent.nl committee of the
appointment of Mr. Howie of the re
publican party of this county, and ask
that a democratic committeeman be
appointed by tho democrats of fhe
county to co-operate with the repub
lican appointee, it Is understood that
the democrats will appoint one of
their number, as they are to a man
in favor of joint statehood in this
A committee of five representative
business men of Gallup was named to
meet tho congressional committee that
will soon pass through this city, and
extend a welcome to the lawmakers
and inform, them of the' sentiments of
the county on the statehood question.
The secretary was Instructed to ex
tend to the congressmen an Invitation
to spend a day in Gallup and visit the
greatest coal producing country in the
The meeting from start to finish
was enthusiastic, there being perfect
harmony , among all present.- If at
any time there has been a political dls
agieement between the member of
the republican party In McKinley coun
ty, the meeting of Saturday failed to
show It In the least. The party In
McKinley county stands today united
and for joint statehood.

Future of Copper.
It has been apparent for many years that the destiny
of our civilization is to be served by electricity a destiny
that in any event cannot be remote. It has been equally
apparent that copper tabled somewhat by its colleague
and rival, aluminum, must be the carrier of the electric
current. The stupendous dimensions of necessity and
opportunity suggested by this observation are matters
of dally comment, and yet the conscious genius of trado
seems not yet to realize fully the ultimate significance;
the market reflects, mainly, a resultant from forces that
represent large capital, ambition, foresight and perpet
ual timidity. A remarkable feature of the recent copper
production is that no visible surplus of metal has been
accumulated. The increasing demand of electric con
struction and supply still live in a haphazard way, from
hand to mouth. Capital cannot afford to trust the future
in fUpportlng the expense of lar.-;e stock locked up Mean-
.Mi le the immediate 'demand continues s'rnm;, and

The Citizen has been informed that the power
be. at Washington. 1). C, have received petitions a
the appointment of 11. S. Itodey, of this city, to t!i
ernorship of New Mexico, on the ground that lie would, if
appointed, favor the Hubbells in the present contest over
certain Hernalil.o county otlices. Such ground of opposi
tion is as absurd as it will be found useless. Mr. Kodoy
has taken no part whatever in the contention. Should
lie be appointed governor, he could not in any way nor
to 1 lie slightest extent, do anything on either side of the
content. The matter is now in the courts and the courts
ulone must decide it.
The Hoswell fair came to a successful (dose on Thurs
day iii-.'ht. the attendance during the final day having
been the larg st of all. Judging from the daily reports
of the Hecord, the occasion from fiist to last was all that
the most exacting could haw wished. The attendance
was larue; the displays were satisfactory in number,
kind and character; the sporting ewnts were good and
siitlieleiu'.y iiuiiK rous, and the evening attractions were
enjoyable, 'fi e imthni: iin-nt seemed to hit the happy
