GAMBLING AND SALOONS
At the present time there Is an undeniable move
ment all over the country In favor of drawinu. In every
department of life, stricter ilnes of demurest Ion between
right and wrong doing. This can he Keen in the Iforls
for overthrowing of hossism in iwlitles. of graft In office,
of embezzlement In positionx of trust, of adulteration in
foodH, of discriminations by common carriers, or re
straints of trade for corporation or personal aggrandize
ment, of easy annulling of marriage ties, of uncontrolled
Helling of liquors, and of open gambling, whether it be tn
futures, In horse racing, or on the wheel ur the green
All these things are being attacked with a vigor
which is alike Intelligent ami determined, and of which
the ultimate triumph cannot be doubted. In New Mexlqo
It Is the Sunday saloon and licensed gambling which are
receiving at the present the largest measure of atten
tion, and there seems to be little if any doubt that the
warfare waged against lioth will be completely success
ful and that, too. in the very near future.
J. J. Hagerman. in the l'ecos valley, has wnttejt a
very strong letter on the subject of gambling, la which
he states that New Mexico and Arizona are the only
parts of the I'nited States where gambling Is authorized
by law, and In which he points out clearly and unanswer
ably the evils resulting from such condition. The dally
press of the territory has taken up the subject, and The
Citizen believes without a dissenting voice has declared
against licensed gambling. Several of the churches have
taken advanced ground in the matter, and will petition
congress to put in the enabling act. whether granting
separate or Joint statehood, a provision declaring gam
bling to he a crime against the commonwealth. The
fact is pointed to that bank deposits have doubled in hj
Paso since the closing out of gambling In that city, over
what they were during a similar period before the clos
ing; and those who are In position to feel the pub ic pulse
are well assured that in case of statehood the constitu
tional convention, or without statehood the next territor
ial legislature. Will undoubtedly place gambling under the
ban of outlawry; while even before the meeting of either
convention or legislature, it is more than probable the
leading cities of New Mexico" will have banished open
gambling by prohibitive license. Nothing whatever can
be said in favor of gambling, and everything can be said
When It comes to the open saloon on Sunday, it is
well known that the laws of the1 territory are now amply
sufficient to close them all, and It is be.ieved tiat the dis
trict court Judges all favor the enforcement of these
laws. In fact, it was recently said that Albuquerque was
the only town in New Mexico where the law was openly
defied. Since then many, and it may he all, saloons in
Albuquerque voluntarily closed their doors on Sunday;
but the charge has been made by a paper miblislied in
this city that only the front doors have been closed
while the rear doors are kept only on the laicli. This
charge has been taken up by the press of the territory.
where absolute closing is claimed, and much lias been
made of It to the discredit of the Duke city. Whether
the closing Inaugurated by the saloon men themselves,
be actual or merely of the front door. The Citizen has
no knowledge; but it is willing to candidly confess that
it does not believe such partial closing will meet the de
mands of the people 'or satisfy the' purpose of the authorities.
LOOMS OF COO WEAVING
FABRICS FOR THE FALL
Oh, the looms of tiod are weaving
Priceless fabric for the fall,
Not a tinting Is he leaving
Krojn the dye tie works In all.
Every efy fabric tills he
In his yellow, gold and red.
Into every tendril spills he
Tints that only he can spread.
Soon we'll revel in our nimble
W'here the ton m urns an.' gay.
When the autumn tree and bramble.
Hang their summer elm in s away,
And put on these r) a I trappings
For the harvest julmee,
Ami their crimson robes are fapplni;
Krom the1 mountains to ihe sea.
When we note the matchless timings
Weaved In nature's priceless modes
With October's mellow glint mgs
In her forest home abodes,
How we'll thank Dame Nature's artist
For his friendship and good will
In thus dressing her the smartest
And not sending us the bill.

MISS ALICE'S PRESENTS
' The fact that Miss Alice RooBevelf received presents
; in the. Orient valued at 9100,000, the duty upon which
, will reach at least ffiO.OOO has caused no little comment
' In the press of the country. One party Says thai because
Miss Alice is daughter of the president is no reason that
she should not be treated as any other American girl
would be treated, and that since she is. wealthy in her
own right she ought to pay the proper and full duty on
'the property she acquired in her trip.
. . The other, party declares that these presents were
given Miss Roosevelt by the nabobs and mik ados and
emperors and such, of the far east, because she. was con
sidered by the givers as the daughter of the ruler of this
country, and therefore of royal blood by position, if not
Vy consanguinity, and thus the gifts were really testi
monin1? of regard for ott- nation rnther than for the in
teresting young lady 'on -.-.norr, they wui bestowed.
They add that the gifts were such as Miss Alice did not
desire and certainly would never have bought ;- that she
accepted them for fear of offending the well meaning
donors, and thus Incurring their ill will for our coun
try. Hence, Secretary Shaw proposes a special act of
congress admitting these gifts without duty; and a chiv
alrous southerner, with more chivalry than sene of pro
priety, proposes to lead in a public subscription to raise
the necessary IHO.tlUO.
To The Citizen there seems a p.aln, easy and Just
settlement of this editorially much vexed question. This
settlement, which may have suggested itself to others,
but which this writer has not thus far seen In print, is
that Miss Roosevelt select such of these present as
she may desire to retain as souvenirs or for other rea
sons and on these let her pay the legal duty. The re
mainder of the presents let her turn over to the govern
ment, to be preserved in the Smithsonian Institute, or
some other national museum; and for this, congress can,
if it so pleases, pass a special bill for free admission.
There are a good many people In this world some fit
teen or sixteen hundred millions of them, statisticians
say. The vast majority of them are quite unknown be
yond the confines of their native vi.lages. A few attain
a reputation- which extends a little distance beyond the
home that cradled them; now and then one becomes
famous in the nation or he reaches the height of an inter
national celebrity. Some of these famous ones are dis
tinguished for their virtues; olhers for their infamies. A
Genghis or a Tamerlane deluges the world with blood.
Men and women grew faint at mention of their names.
Hut the influence of these men fades away. Their names
are not written on the fleshy tablets of the human heart.
Tamerlane built a pyramid of 70,000 human skul. s In
honor of his victories, and as a monument for future gen-1
orations. Yet who was Tamerlane? Only the student of
history Is familiar with his name. His achievements were
sterile The name that once struck 1 error wherever and
whenever It was mentioned is not written large In the his
tory of th world. Tamerllne's monument has fallen, and
his bones have long since crumbled Into dust. There is no
vitality .eft in his deeds. The farmers sow their grain
upon his battlefields, and the wild Dowers that grow
where his mighty armies trod attract more attention to
day than the fury of that wild Tartar's heart.
On the other hand history contains the names ot men
.vhoin the love of the world will never allow to die The
?reat religious teachers, law givers, poets philosophers,
scientists and inventors live on from generation to gener

memoW St. Francis of Assassl, that sweet saint of the
Catholic church .whose love for men was so greal that he
was said to remember even those whom God had ap
parently forgotten. The world loves to remember the
Christ and the Buddha and Confucius, because these men
spoke to the heart, the conscience and the intellect of us
all. Everyone loves to remember Socrates and Plato,
Sophocles- and Dante Cervantes and Shakespeare, Solon
and Abraham LJnco'.n, because these men stood for the
majesty of life and revealed how largw a man might be;

Comparisons between great and noble men are odi
ous. There are none too many of them. The world needs
them all. Whoever stands for the Integrity of the intel
lect, the conscience or the heart deserves well of man
kind. He who makes two spears of grass grow where
only one grew before is a benefactor. The man who
makes us feel the largeness of life, who appeals to alt
that Is noble and generous within us, 1b a man whose
name the ages will not willingly let die, no matter how
little Is said about him at the hour of death.

, ALL COUNTERFEITS '
The president of a bank, when asked by a young
clerk how he could distinguish the bad bills from the
good . ones, said: "Get acquainted with the good bihs, 1
and you will recognize the bad ones at sight."
This homely, pointed advice, applies not only to the
detection of counterfeit money but with equal force,
to the detection of the counterfeit and false in all de
partments of life. The man who is accustomed to
handling only good corn, good wli.-at, Mood potatoes, has
no difficulty in detecting the faulty. He detects it .in
stinctively. Even without conscious reasoning, be fixes
precisely upon the fault. The skilltul egg chandler
passes good eggs before the light with a ryliinic rapidity
that 1b amazing; but an imperfect egg breaks his com
placency ami Interrupts his process. To the trained
musician, accustomed to doing and knowing high work,
a false note comes like a stab of pain. The skilled gram
marian, the close reasoner, the accomplished rhetorician
cannot avoid nut icing fauity figures of speech, fallacious
I arguments or grammatical solecisms.
Anyone, in any occupation, who is fully engaged do
ing the right ihlng will hava no difficulty in recognizing
the wrong. Right ami wrong are as far apart as day
and night, and he vhq Is accustomed to walk in Ihe
light is quick to note the shadows. The boy or girl
careful of his or her thought or speech and manner will
soon learn to know and despise the loose and vulgar.
There is but ono way to know the bad, the imper
fect, tin. I that is by knowing the good, the perfect. It
is a rule that applies far beyond the dmection of coun
terfeit money; it i the right rule for the detection ami
the correct estimate of the spurious and base in all
phases of life.
SOME STORIES WISE
AND SOME OTHERWISE
Kept Backing Out. 1 '
The class in botany at the i'owson Higa school this
year was given some practical work to do. Each mem
ber, was required to plant some beans and report prog
Some time after the beans had been put into the
ground the instructor called on the class to tell what
they bad noted. All went well until she came to one ot
the young ladies.
"What have you to say, Miss ?" asked the
"My beans did not come up right," said the scholar;
"they backed out of the ground and I pulled them out
and bnreld therd again, leaving the sprouts above the
soil. Tbey came up as at first and I put them in right
again, but the old things backed out again today and I
don't know what to do with them."
It was some time U'fore the young lady couul be
made to understand that nature requires that the bean
come out before the vine appears. Chicago News,
