COMPREHENSIVE PLAN. A
MINERAL EXHIBIT AS A NU
CLEUS FOR A 6REAT SOUTH
WEST INDUSTRIAL EXPOSI
It must be clear to every one who
thinks about the matter at all that
the gfouni work of all El Paso's pros
perity in the years to come will be
mining. The mining industry is al
ready far and away the more important
to the Great Southwest. Watch the
list of arrivals at the hotels. It will be
een that by far the greater propor
tion of visitors from this section of the
oeuntry are men interested in some
way or other in mines. That is the
subject most talked about wherever
men gather together. That is the
industry that is doing more to keep up
the city of El Paso than all ethers put
Our merchants may think they are
doing all the business. 'Our factories
may claim precedence. Even our
real estate brokers many say that they
re turning money over faster than
anybody else. But the fact remains
that the thing that keeps El Paso mov
ing is the ceassleas dig, dig, dig, of
The mining industry creates wealth,
or, to speak more strictly, transforms
latent wealth into a ehape that has
commercial value. A man owning a ten
acre farm-may have beneath him a mine
worth as many millions, but it might
as well cot be there if the man does
not proceed to open it up and take out
the ore, turning it into gold and silver.
Too many prospectors and email miners
seem to ignore this very vital fact
that the possession of a streak of ore
in some out of the way place does cot
necessarily constitute a mine.
The time of paying big prices for a
bit of float or a ten foot hole in the
ground has gone by. Men with money
to Invest in mining now want to see
what they are about. Prospect holes
are rarely of any considerable value;
that is, proepect holes in the ordinary
sense. Nowadays prospecting means
the expenditure of a thousand dollars I
in ievelopmentwork. When that is
done the investor can see what there
The El Paso ehamber of commerce
has started upon a grand work that of
providing a place where the mineral
resources of the Great Sout h west can be
demonstrated to anyone who is inter st
ed, and where mining investors can be
brought into contact with the men who
have mines to sell. To this end a great
mineral exhibit will be arranged, which
will present in graphic form, by dis
tricts and camps, the mining industry
of the Southwest. The various railroads
and tbe big smelter have offered to co
operate in making the exhibit a success,
The chamber of oommerce of El Paso
has already provided a suitable tem
porary building to house tbe exhibit,
and plans are on foot to build within
the next two years one of the finest ex
position buildings in the west. It is
likely tbat state and national aid will
be seoured, and tbat Mexioo will help
afeo. The scheme is a grand one, but
El Paso has done grand things before,
and there io no reason why the should
falter before this one.
it only needs cooperation. The peo
ple of El Paso, firet, must stand
shoulder to shoulder, in the irm deter
mination that this project must be real
ized in its fullest sense. Then the co
operation of all the surrounding coun
try must be gained. We must show
tbe people of west Texas, New
Mexico, Arizona, Chihuahua, and So'
nora tbat tbelr mining interests center
here, and that they will help them
selves as much as they will help us, if
not more, by helping in this exposition
project. It can be done, and If we
stick together it will be done.
The exhibit that Major. Davis is now
collecting is but preliminary to tbat
grand Great Southwest Industrial
Exposition, which will grow out of this
mineral exhibit. It is time the re
sources of the threat southwest were
brought before tbe world as the
wealth of one distinct section of our
country. Tbe term, The Great South
west, should be insisted upon constant
ly, and everything brought to bear in
'he effort to drive this section to the
And especially should some suitable
exhibit be made at tbe Buffalo exposi
tion next year, and a glorious aggre
gation of displays at the Louisiana
Purebase exposition at St Louis in
1903. It is time to begin now. Let
us see how fine an exhibit we can get
together by next spring.
El. Paso bas a perfect right to be
proud of herself. The way she has
gone to work to make ready for the
coming of the teachers would be a
credit to Denver or Chicago or any
other live city. It took a hard fight
to get hlcgs livened up, and tbe
inertia of seme people was mighty
hard to overcome, but after tbe
machine got to work nothing could
stop it. Now we have to look for
ward to a week of such jubilation as
this old town has never Been. There
will be four bands here, and there
will be musio somewhere in the city
almost all the time. The electrio
illumination will be as fine as any
ever seen (lnT the Hate, and many of
the merchants will help out by mak
ing individual displays. There will
be thousands of strangers here, and
every El Pasoan ought to take care
tbat no one of the visitors goes awsy
without being made to feel tbat he is
tae particular guest for whom all the
preparation was made.
FROM the number of conventions that
are going on in this state one wonld
conjecture that there is not a person
of any professlen, labor, occupation.
taste, prejudice, or sport, tbat is not
organized Into some sort of a club and
busy convening these days. Policemen,
letter carriers, Christians, hardware
men, grocers wnolerale, grocers retail,
mayors, women, Belgian hare raisers,
Pullman car coaduotors, musio stu
dents, dentists, pops, anti-pops,
republicans, round bale glnners,
mortar mixers, and firemen every
day in one end of the state or other
men and women of similar tastes are
convening. Every idea of study,
growth, work, or play has its secretary
and its bylaws, elects a president and
has trouble about its membership
qualifications. And the olub is but
an etheriallz?d trust after all.
Never before in the history of the
country has there been such great in
terest in the matter of cleanliness of
cities. The desired cleanliness ex
tends cot only to the streets and al
leys, but to the politics of the cities at
well. Some papers are making a poins
of the connection between dirty pol
itics and dirty cities. The point is
well taken. The press of tbe country
is taking a stand a little in advance of
the average mind in this matter, but
that is Its province. The mass of the
people have not yet been aroused to
the necessity of having clean politics
and clean cities, but tbe good time is
coming. The newspapers are a unit
in calling for better meina of disposal
of garbage, sewage, and cfScial rogues.
The mission board of the Presby
terian church bas decided to with
hold its last supply of missionaries for
China until September, deeming it
inadvisable to send the young folks
there in the midst of the present
disturbances. The board is wise. The
present difficulty can be settled better
without any more missionaries on the
scene, and if it is to be war the mis
sionaries would only cumber the
proceedings and hinder tbe peace
If there has to be war. it is to be re
gretted, but if it has to be then it
ought to be fought out quickly and
Now the oountry waits for the Kan
Bas City convention to name its can
ldates and build something that will
do for a platform, and then the camp
aign will begin in earnest. As tbe
time approaches July tbe fourth, there
is more and more talk of Bryan giving
up some of his Bryanlsm, and as there
is no doubt. tbat Bryan would rather be
president than stubborn it is more
than likely tbat tbe Kansas City plaaks
will be built circumspectly and dis
creetly of some composite material.
Every mlnlog camp in the Great
Southwest ought to give Major Divis,
tbe representative of tbe El Paso
chamber of commeroe, erery facility
in oar Tying on bis work of getting to
gether a mineral exhibit. Tbe exhibit
will be to tbe direct benefit of every
miner and prospector in this seotion,
aud will work a long step toward the
time when in El Paso will have Its

the mining interests of the southwest
The mint is coming if we work for it.
The demopoprdonot care particular
ly to face their old predictions they'd
prefer to make new ones about im
perialism and militarism. Grosvenor
of Ohio, at the Philadelphia conven
tion, quoted from Congressman Bai
ley's remarks in 1898 that if prosperity
followed the passage of the Dingley
bill, there would be no necessity for a
democratic convention in 1900, and in
in the light of present conditions In
our land, Grosvenor Invited Bailey to
eat his words.
The demopops in claiming that
Bryan's strength is stronger in the
east are but burying their heads in
the sand to avoid the fearful sight of
his weakness in the west. As a matter
of fact the east was not and is not easily
swept away by any debased money
scheme. The east is older than tbe
west and knows enough to know that
a dollar needs to be a dollar and no
General. Otis says that wherever
tbe Americans have taken possession,
the Filipinos have crowded into the
schools and are eager to learn our
speech and our ways. There is no
doubt that ten years mor& of the pre
sent regime, minus the wars that must
soon come to an end, will completely
Americanize the Islanders.
The biggest thing El Paso has to
look forward to is tbe suooeesful reali
zation of the plan for tbe building of a
reproduction of Mootezema's Palace
in this city, to be tbe home of tbe
finest mineral exhibit in the west, and
to contain an auditorium that can some
day accommodate a national conven
tion. The street cars of El Paso ought to
be run on a quick schedule during the
teachers' convention, and every car
in tbe city pressed into eervice. Bad
at best, improvement is possible
without serious inconvenience, and
for the good of the city it ought to be
The New York Herald would resus-
oltate Grover Cleveland who, it will
be remembered, was a democrat

democrats who are out of this turmoil

they are Grever Cleveland and George

doubt carry the state easily, and he
would make a first olass governor.
Prizes have been offered in Topeka
to tbe citizens having the best kept
lawns and the cleanest sidewalks,
yards, and alleys. It is only decent
to insist on a clean city.
The secret of successful entertain
ment is individual attention. Make
every stranger In El Paso next week
feel that he is the honored guest.
Every one who contributed te the
convention entertainment fund put
himself on reoord as a loyal El Pasoan.
El Paso is proud of them.
