Wfiat is Refigicn?
What Is religion? asks nn eastern paper and the question was timely
aa the result of nn attempt of a congregation leaving a church to mob a man
because he shot his wife.
Five minutes before It became a wild, passion swayed mob. the congre
gation with downcast eyes and bowed heads, had Just received the benedic
tion of, the pastor.
Then men and women walked reverently out Into the sunshine. Across
the street. In the New York town, a woman called from a window that her
husband had shot her. The congregation saw her fall and the men and
women who had knelt In worship a few minutes before, rushed madly Into
that home and attacked the slayer of the woman. The congregation would
have mobbed the man but he ended his own life.
Therefore the eastern exchange asks, What Is religion?
It was a peculiar condition, a trying one for any man or any woman.
Tet mob rule at the door of a church is a peculiar creed to say the least,
and the question of the eastern exchange merits considerable study.
It any of the enemies of President Roosevelt, seeking to discredit his
'administration, sought to cause a temporary panic or to develop a false
menace of a panic, this movement Is no longer active. The president put
an abrupt end to It In his Provlncetown speech, says the Kansas City Star.
Even Mr. Harrlman Is now quite optimistic, and he ought to have credit for
plain and conving statement he has made on the false relation that Is some
times permitted to exist between Wall street and the actual conditions of
business. There is not the slightest reason why there should be any further
depression. The real wealth of the country, measured by raw and manu
factured products, has not decreased, nor does It show signs of depreciation.
The fluctuations of Wall street are things apart from the true activities of
finance, industry and commerce.
Thirty-nine soldiers of the United States army, who were attacking a
Leavenworth, Kansas, Jail In an effort to release a comrade under arrest,
turned and fled In confusion when a deputy sheriff fired one shot In the air.
There Is considerable difference In the deportment of an American soldier In
the discharge of his duty and when he Is doing something that he knows is
disgracing the uniform he wears. Had those thirty-nine soldiers been or
dered out to take that Jail In the regular performance of military duty, It
Is safe to say they would have taken It and released their comrade. At
tacking, In !he dark of the night, without officers and without orders, the
American soldiers ran from one man with one gun.
Well wait Who cares? "A dispatch sent out from Washington this
wek, and which Is evidently the work of some fake artist, states that the
very people that opposed the union of New Mexico and Arizona Into one
state are now advocating the union of Arizona and Nevada," says the Hol
brook Argus. "Such absurd propositions as this one makes the Arizonlan
smile. This territory Is rapidly forging ahead and we are satisfied for the
time being with our present territorial government. Of course, we desire
to be a state of the union but we are not fools enough to want to be tacked
onto some other sub-division of these United States. We can afford to wait
until congress sees fit to admit us to statehood with our present boundaries
as the lines of the state of Arizona. And what Is more, we will wait."
A Kansas woman, Becoming to the Emporia Gazette, has written a book
on the life of Jerry Simpson, commonly known as "Sockless Jerry." Poor
old Kansas can not forget her past but needs must dig up unpleasant mem
ories. Among other things, it is said, the book will attempt to batter down
the Impression that Jerry did not wear socks and will charge openly that
he actually wore dropstitch of variegated colors.
The Santa Fe New Mexican rather doubts certain facts about the visit
to this territory of Coronado and his men 100 years or so before a settle
ment on the eastern coast. At the same time all that guff about Pocahon
tas, which can be found In some of our romantic histories, goes without con
tradiction. As far as The Citizen Is concerned, it prefers the Coronado version.
This paper has one more line to add to those at tho head of this column
and that line Is "STATEHOOD FOR NEW MEXICO." It means Just that
and nothing more. The Citizen is for statehood first, last and all the time,
and The Citizen believes more firmly than ever that statehood is at hand.

WHY DID YOU COME WEST?
To rest, recuperate, hunt, fish, breathe fresh pure air, see mountain
scenery, get a change, live a new and rasclnatlng life under new conditions
and get food that needs no pure food law.
That's why you came west!
There Is a beautiful little valley that nestles between the highest moun
tains of the Hoekles on the upper l'ecos river: Ideal altitude. 7,000 feet, and
temperature Identical with Albuquerque. Its streams swarm with trout
and the woods and ranges are filled with game large and small. The
ranchers live the life of the west. There are mountain lion, beer, deer
and wolves for the hunter. There are saddlp ponies to be had for the
asking, rooms In a big, rambling ranch house with wide verandas, tent
rooms or a rabln if you want It. The day are never dull. You see a
great ranch and the genuine western life. Frtsh milk, butter and eggs
all you can drink and eat. Sleep in blankets at nigh fish In your shirt

entirely by gas and the monthly bill
for fuel gas is 14.50. Two tons or
coal is sufficient to keep their one
heating stove going through the win
ter and this means an average ex
pense of $3 a month for five winter
months; the water tax for a month
is $1.80 and electric light costs $2.
Insurance on the household effects Is
75 cents; family washing 36 a month,
and laundry for both, $3; telephone
at the house, and this includes an
extension phone to the doctor's bed
side, costs $3. Once a month a wo
man comes to do general cleaning
and this costs $1.50. Money con
tributed .to the collection plate at
church amounts to $2: subscriptions
to the two local dally newspapers,
$1.2U; It costs a dollar a month to
have the small lawn cut; pressing
the doctor's clothes costs $2 a month
and the wife spends about $12 every
thirty days for Incidentals.
The doctor's incidental expenses
amount to about $12.85; of this $8
goes for cigars; $3 for shaves; 35
cents on a hair cut and for shoe
shines, 50 cents. The remaining dol
lar Is for other slight expenditures.
As the doctor is teetotaler, no money
is spent for liquor.
Cost of C'lotliliiff.
It cost Mrs. Blank $1S0 last year
to dress, or $15 a month. She does
very little sewing herself and has at
least one dress a year which costs
$35 or $40. Her hats cost from $5
to $20 and shoes $15 a year. Space
is not afforded here to give a com
plete list of a woman's expenses for
clothing, but that matter will be giv
en detailed attention in a future ar
ticle. Dr. Plank spends $109 n year on
his wardrobe, an average of $9.15 a
month. A winter suit costs him $35
and a summer suit. $25; two pairs
of shoes cost him $5.50 a pair; he
spends about $6 a year for neck ties;
$5 for a felt hat and $4 for a straw
hat; two suits of winter underwear
and three suits of summer under gar
ments, at $6 a suit, last him ihree
years; he spends nothing for hand
kerchiefs hs tie gets plenty of these
as Christmas presents. Resides his
other expenses he pays $2 a month
for lodge fees. Neither the doctor'
nor his wife have their lives Insured.
Entertaining guests costs them about
J.'i a month extra.
The item of amusement for this
family averages about $6 a month
and donations to some cause or oth
er, usually charitable, counts up to
$2 a month.
While this doctor always has a sur
plus in the bank, lie does not save
much. Occasionally he Is able to
make some small investment with'au
ye to the future, but most often, if
tlie money In tlie bank accumulates
beyond a certain point he spends it
on a vacation trip for himself and
wife. The doctor's life is not one
eay path of thornless roses; he is
often called to attend a patient in the
middle of the night; he lias much dif
ficulty in collecting his bills and loses
u b:g pel-cent. i;e every year on bad
debt. When everything Is consider
ed the fees charged by doctors are
not exorbitant. Two dollars Is tile
fee for a day call; $1 to $2 for an
office call (according to the na
ture of the cae, and $3 for a night
call. Every doctor in this city does
a great deal of wink which Is purely
charitable and for which a lent or
payment is n.er expected.
The total monthly expense of Dr.
Plank for office, household and oth
er expenses is thus $190, or $2.20.O0
for the year, but this does not In-
c.ude vacation trips or expenses
which may uiise as the result of
some unusual event. It can 'be seen
by glancing at the various items that

the Chicago & Alton In the shipment
of oil from its refinery at Whiting,
lnd., to East St. Louts. 111. It must
be borne In mind that there is no
question of rebate or discrimination
in this case. The contention of the
government was that the lawful rate
was IN cents per one hundred pounds
between these two points. The de
fendant claims; First, that the law
ful rate was 6 cents; and, secondly,
if 6 cents was not the lawful rate
It was the rate issued to the Stand
ard by the Alton as the lawful rate.
and the Standard was Justified In be
lieving from Us own investigation
and from the information received
from the railroad company that 6
cents was the lawful rate.
Not a Commodity Hate.
"The 18-cent rate was a 'class' and
not a 'commodity' rate, and the
chairman of the Chicago & St. Louis
Traffic association, the association Is
suing the 18 cent class rate, under
oath testified that It was never in
tended to apply to oil.
"The period of time covered by the
Indictment In this case was from Sep
tember 1, 1903. to March 1. 1905.
The rate on oil between Chicago and
East St. Louis over the Alton for
fourteen years from 1391 to 1905, was
always 6 cents per one hundred
pounds. This was an open published
rate known to everyone concerned In
the shipment of oil and generally
known In all railroad circles in Chi
cago. Roth Chicago and East St.
Louis being in Illinois, the railroad
company was under no legal obliga
tion to file this rate with the inter
state commerce commission at Wash
ington, but Whiting, being in Indi
ana, shipments from Whiting to East
St. Louis were technically, at least.
Interstate and hence the Alton filed
with the Interstate commerce com
mission what is known as an 'appli
cation sheet' applying to Whiting the
Chicago rate, and deemed the filing
of the application sheet all that was
necessary under the law.
The Custom of Shippers.
"For over thirty years, by custom,
all of the little industrial towns
grouped about Chicago, and which
are in reality an essential part of
Chicago and go to make up its in
dustrial strength, have been given
the same freight rates as Chicago.
The reason for this is, of course, ap
parent, and it Is because of this uni
formity of freight rates that Chicago
as the center of this group is today
a city of over two millions of inhabi
tants. H Whiting, Pullman, Hege
wisch and South Chicago did not get
the same freight rates as Chicago,
manufacturing , establishments in
these towns would be compelled to
close their doors. Because of this
condition and situation railroads cre
ated what Is known as the Chicago
switching district, which Includes
Whiting and all of these other little
manufacturing towns in and around
Chicago. These towns are further
unified by a belt line railroad which
encircles Chicago arid connects this
entire industrial svstem with the
trunk lines radiating from Chicago.
"Thousands of tons of freight
have been shipped from these points
during the past fifteen years under
the same circumstances as the Stand
ard shipments, and If the Standard Is
guilty In this case, so is practically
every other shipper in this great
manufacturing territory. Is there a Jq
purpose in selecting the Standard Baif
