The spectacle of the New York stock markt't fluttering lik the pulse of
a fever patient over the condition of E. H. Harriman's health in nut pleasing
to a wholesome American. Why has one man so much power that th
finances of the nation are so greatly affected by his coming and going? Is
JIarrlman really such an important person, .or has the Imagination of Wall
street endowed his name with a potency that does not belong to It?
There is no question about Harriman's marvelous achievements, both as
a financier and a railroad operator. Ho acquired control of the I'nion Pacltle
railroad when It was bankrupt and without credit, and has made It the most
important railroad company in the country not the most Important railroad,
for there are many that are more extensive und that handle more traffic.
But the Union Pacific company, under Harriman's control has become also a
great Investment corporation, with holdings of the stocks of other railroads
that are greater in value than the Unfon Pacific system Itself. The Union
Pacific company 'owns S00 million dollars' worth of the securities of other
railroads, and Its net income from these securities is greater than the annual
net Income from the Union Pacific railroad, all of which helps to make the
Concerning these facts there is no question. They are matters of official
record. They make Harrlman the most powerful private citizen financially
peaking In th United States today both because he controls this mighty
aggregation of wealth and because of the prestige which he has gained by
the creation of such a financial machine.
But the Imaginative speculators on Wall street are not content with
conceding to Harrlman the power he actually possesses. They are ascribing
to him a species of magic which is far beyond the actual potentiality of the
man. They are using the Harrlman name to conjure with. They have
succeeded so well that rumors of Harriman's health or Illness nnd vague
stories of Harriman's supposed plans have become as effective' In Influencing
speculative operations as are Btories of giants In frightening naughty children.
WaJl street, in short, has become possessed of a sort of hysteria over
Harrlman. It is not unusual for Wall street to become, semi-hysterical.
But when it reaches a stage at which the market value of billions of property
joea up or flown according as one man is reported well or ill, when the
market hangs trembling while it awalU the arrival and the landing of one
man and fluctuating as the color of his face changes. Wall street, or that
part of It which is under the spell, makes Itself ridiculous to the great mass
f the people who still retain their sanity. -r
3ft? Sfaft Reception
It Is hieel anj proper that the territorial city and other officials should
co-operate In extending a reception to the president upon the occasion of his
visit to this city and it is to be hoped that each and every individual will
co-operate to make the affair a memorable one.
The city should be placed In gala attire on thai day and this can only be
done prpperly by each resident seeing to It, that his respective place of
tmslness and residence is property decorated.
The reception will, of course, depend largely upon the president's wishes,
and a tentative program will be submitted to the president's secretary Tor
But no matter what the final details of the entertainment may be, the
city as a whole a the metropolis of the southwest, should put Its best foot
forward and give tile president and his party an adequate idea of what we
are and what we are going to be.
While It Is announced that the reception will be "under the auspices" of
the Commercial club, yet it should be under the auspices of each and every
American citixen not only in this city, but all over New Mexico.
Prepare to take part when the time arrives.
Q 5ooq Suggestion
It ha ln-en suggested that the applloatlon for a franchise, for the
Highland street cur system, contain a proviso, which will permit the citv of
AlbuiiueffTue to take over the car line, at any time after it Is built and In
operation, by payinsr tn full for the cost of building it, together with ten per
cer.t. therein. This would absolutely guarantee the city, protection In the
matter of a franchise and It would also place the municipality in position to
acquire what will eventually be a valuable property, should the time come
when li e city thought 'irh acquisition advisable.
The suggestion is too new a one, for lengthy discussion at this time, but
it sounds alright and should In- entitled to consideration. The thing that
counts, however. Is to build the street car line and do It right away. That
Is the chief matter of int.Test to the people of the city and particularly
those of the Highlands.
Concerning Ormby Mcllnrg. who is reported as quitting the job of
assistant secretary of the bureau of commerce and labor, and who is recalled
an this territory as the badly frightened special agent of the interior depart
ment, the Huntingdon Hi raid ef Huntingdon, Ind., says: Ormsby Mciiarg,
who Is coming to be known as "the old sleuth" of the Taft administration,
has enough aliases in lifs own family to keep him from being discovered.
Originally the McHnrgs were the (Irahamn of Scotland. That particular
branch of the Grahams to which Ormsby Mciiarg belongs became tired of
being chased over the highlands and lowlands of Scotland by their ancient
enemies and at a time when it was exceedingly interesting to the bearers of
the name of (iraluun a wily chieftain in the elan hit on the scheme of
changing the name to "Maharg." This, spelled mckward, U "lirahum,"
Later In the family career It was changed again to Mciiarg and "Sleuth"
Ormsby bears the modern name.

Hildesheim subscriber's set, co:in, c-u ,1
to the automatic exi hange, is com
posed of a disk on which are to be
found ten hulls numbered from the
bottom up, 0 to 9. These holes nre
Just large enough to permit tho In
sertion of the average person's fore
finger, the holes being on a movable
disk. If, for Instance, a person de
ems to be connected with No. 951.
the subscriber first removes tho re
ciiver from the hook, then places his
forefinger In the slot numbered 9. H"d
rotatis the disk as far s It will go
that is, until his finger strikes an ob
struction. He then removes his finger
fr"m the slot and permits the disk to
rturn to Its normal position undu
the action of a spring, whereupon the
forefinger is inserted In the hole
marked 5 and the disk being again ro
tated until the finger meets tho ob
struction, the disk being again per
mitted to return to Its normal posi
tion; the subscriber tin n again places
Fiis forefinger In the hole marked 1.
again rotates the disk and lets it re
turn to zero.
The manner In which the connec
tion Is made Is as follows: When a
subscriber rotates the disk by placing
his finger In the hole 9 and rotatis
the disk he sends the requisite Im
pulse over the line to the centrnl
office, to move In the case of No.
951, the 100 sw'itch nine stops, or, In
others words, the switch picks .mt the
ninth hundred. Similarly, when his
finger Is placed In the hole 5 and the
dmk Is rotated, it Is again rotated
through a predetermined ungle and
sends back to the central office live
impulses, which In turn move a final
selector, which had in the meantime;
become connected to the loo switch
above referred to, five spaces, which
will correspond to the AOs in this
particular 900; and so again with the
1, until finally the apparatus In the
central office has been connected
through to line No. 9,"1 from the call
ing subscriber's line. It Is not neces
sary for the subscriber to ring, Inas
much as this is also done automati
cally. The subscriber, having finished, ter
minates the connection by hanging
the receiver on the hook. Immediately
another person can be called up.
Should the subscriber wish to call
while a number Is In use he can get
no connection until the usi r has
ceased conversation, und this, of
course, docs away with the annoying
feature in telephones of being Inter
rupted In the midst of a conversation
by some one breaking In. Dy this
system the subscriber can readily be
connected at any time, whether day
or nlght and It Is evident that It
will ultimately do away entirely with
the exchange .girl, as it reduces the
cost of maintenance. The govern
ment is energetically pursuing ex
periments for the improving of the
present telephone system, and this au
tomatic device seems to have solved
the problem. Vice Consul Brunswick
