ejfie Qmerican Way
The people of the United States have shown a wide awake Interest In
the most famous balloon race ever held In the world, and the newspaper
offlces. In cities and towns, have been besieged early and late for news of
the balloons. ,-
. It is the American way. The people of the United States feel that this
treat race heralds the approach of aerial navigation along practical lines
and the great American public is always looking ahead for the very latest
', All records were broken in the big race and the Indications are that
aerial navigation has advanced considerably as a result of the demonstra
tions made of the ability of the Inventors of various air crafts to successful
(ravel long distances at a high speed.
.While the race was much a matter of luck and of success In finding
he proper air currents, still the ability to make a trip of over eight hun
dred long miles In a given direction is something no aeronaut has ever be
fore achieved. Other balloons traveled even further, one going 1100 miles,
but the .aeronaut In charge could not keep the air ship to one line of travel
and doubled back over his track because of adverse air currents.
It Is generally believed by authorities on the subject that as soon as
the aerial navigators understand how to control their crafts against op
posing winds, they will have eventually solved the question of aerial navi
gation. The American public was therefore deeply interested In Its American
vay. It was anxiously inquiring whether or not an aeronaut had succeed
ed In piloting his balloon against the elements and if so, it was anxious to
fee the first to welcome successful aerial navigation, just as It was the first
to welcome nearly all of the modern Inventions of recent years. While
record, have been broken it does not appear that any particularly new
and original Ideas have been advanced In aerial navigation, but one can
The experiences obtained by aeronauts and designers of air ships in that
great race, may result in the building within a year of the first real air
craft, which will have the power to defy the elements. It is to be hoped
such a result will obtain.

In speaking of the recent grand jury In that city, the New Mexican of
yesterday calls attention to the fact that there was apparently a leak
somewhere besides In the grand Jury room as certain government officials
It appears that someone evidently having considerable Interest In adver
tising the doings of the grand jury, made public the list of names of persons
Indicted within a few hours after the true bills were returned, which has been
contrary to the practice in this territory. The clerk, of the eourt, Mr. Wil
aon, stated that he did not make the names public and would not have done
mo.. ' .
The question naturally arises as to who did. Not all the papers of the
territory and not all the newspaper correspondents in the capital were al
lowed to have the list. In fact, only one man received the information
and since he is anything but an enterprising correspondent, It is not likely
that 'he sat up late at night and "pulled off a newspaper scoop." If he
did, It is the first time he ever did such a thing and he should be - duly
honored. But even if It were a legitimate newspaper beat, which it was
not, by any means, somebody gave the information contrary to the orders
of the court and the laws of New Mxlco.
, If the government officials who are so quick to charge dishonesty in
grand Jurors, desire to be fair and Impartial, it would be a good Idea to
Investigate this matter and let the public know just where the leak Is.
The New Mexican is right in calling attention to such a condition.
Neither the New Mexican nor this paper would object to a fair and square
news "beat as both papers have demonstrated their ability to get there first
in an open break. But if there is a leak in the grand jury room or any
where else, the government officials will be remiss in their duty, if they do
not investigate it and let the public know how it comes that one lone man
ana correspondent, secures such Information under such conditions. Or can
It be possible, that an investigation would prove embarrassing?
Curry Does riflings
"The people of the Pecos Valley are unanimous for statehood. I will
leave today for Lincoln and Otero counties. George Curry."
The above wire received by The Citizen office today is a sample of the
way our new governor does things. He is a man of action and when he
told the people of New Mexico that he was for statehood and the sooner the
better, he meant Just that.
Governor Curry no sooner hung up his hat in the executive office, than
he put it on again and started out to get statehood. Ue has done more
in the few months he has been our executive towards securing our admis
sion to the union than any governor we ever had.
He did not sit down and wait for some one else to get the people to
gether. He packed a few duds in a grip and bought a ticket for all over
New Mexico. In other wflrds Governor Curry did Just what President
Roosevelt did, he went out to see the people and didn't wait for them to
come and see him.
Being a soldier and a good one, Governor Curry Is naturally a man of
action. He knows the only way to get statehood is to work for it and he
la the first to put his hand to the plow.
Governor Curry is the kind of man this territory needs at Its head and
If he secures statehood, which The Citizen believes he will, backed by the
people, he is entitled to other honors, which no doubt he will receive. But
the governor has the right Idea and the people are with him regardless of

of Lha trust. It Is:
" 'Charge the consumer Just as
much as he will pay.'
j low it is worked.
"This was admitted bv Edward
Rueb, president of the Chicago but
ter ami egg board. i In a remarkably
candid statement he said:
"The average dally receipt of
butter in Chicago is 7.000 tubs, or
4ZU,ouu pounds, Ekb receipts aver
age 8,000 cases, or 2.880,000 eggs
daily. Prices In the other primary
butter and egg markets of the coun
try Boston, New York and Phila
delphia may vary slightly, 'but the
prices made here usually prevail
elsewhere. New Y.ork la the biggest
consumer, and the price made there
Is generally the price of this mar
ket plus the freight.
"High prices are in the very air.
In this great season of prosperity
everybody has money and every
body can afford to buv butter and
eggs at good prices.
I he labor problem enters Into
the situation somewhat, for people
like to live in the cities, and the
farmer is 'hard pressed to get help.

duclon is not increased. But prices
are high because the public can and
will pay high prices.
"There is of course a limit. The
other day we had. the wholesale
price of butter up to 30 cents, which
might mean about 40 cents retail.
"The result was a falling off In
sales. Many people refused to buy.
Then we reduced butter to 27 cents."

the 30-cent price?" 1 persisted.
"The price," he said, "was what
we believed the public would pay."
''How much 'butter was In cold
storage when your board forced the
price up 3 cents?"
"I do not know."
"Millions of pounds?"
"And who stores this butter?"
"It is stored by the packers and
other refrigerating companies."
"Then the fact is that these mil
lions of pounds are held by the
packers' trust while the price Is ar
bitrarily Increased to the consumer
without regard to the laws of sup
ply and demand?"
Rueb admitted this to be a fact
although he would not concede that
a trust had anything to do with it.
When the people of Chicago were
paying 82 cents retail a pound for
first creamery grades, Boston paid
42, New York 40, Cincinnati 38 and
40 and San Francisco, with big
freight charges added, paid 50 cents
