New Mexico demands statehood
of the 57th conjures.
Tin: Chikftain now enters
upon its third jcar under the
present management. Two years
ago it was promised that improve
ment would he made in the pa
per as fast as financial conditions
would warrant. That promise
has been kept and is still binding.
Kcaders may expect still further
improvements in Tiu:Ciin:i tain.
The superiority of Socorro's
winter climate has never been
more strikingly illustrated than
during the present winter. While
the people of the northern and
the eastern and even the southern
states have been experiencing
unusually intense cold, the lowest
temperature recorded by the
government observer in this city
has been 17 degrees above zero.
For example, New Year's day in
Socorro was bright and warm, so
warm that an overcoat was
superfluous. No wonder that
New Mcxico'sclimatc is becoming

should at once subscribe for the
great newspaper of St. Louis, the

eminent and alone among
American newspapers, and ac

Mexico, Missouri, Indian Terri

out of a total of 5057 miles for
the entire country. More than a
third of the railroad extension
for the present year has taken
place in Missouri and the South
west. Arizona is credited with
eighty-live miles of new railroad,
which is more than was construc
ted in all New England, and
more also than was built in New
York or California. Globe-Democrat.
(ninth of the Southwest.
Thhovuhoitt November and
December the ratio or gain in the
bank clearances of St. Louis has
been much larger than that of
any other large city. It would
be a mistake to suppose that this
expansion is mainly due to World's
Fair inlluences. That factor will
count hereafter, but is, as yet, a
slight clement in the case. The
great and steady enlargement of
the trade of St. Louis allects all
its interests and comes from all
surrounding territory. But more
especially is the rapid rise of the
Southwest to be taken into
consideration. The statistics of
the year show that this section
of the country continues to lead
all others in relative development.
By the national census of 19u()
Oklahoma held the lead in
proportionate increase of popula
tion during the previous decade,
the gain execceding 500 per cent.
Indian Territory in the ttame time
more than doubled its population.
Texas grew almost as rapidly as
Illinois, passing the 3,0(10,000
mark, and taking sixth place in
the list of states. Arizona also
more than doubled its population.
Missouri held its place as the
fifth state, adding nearly half a
million inhabitants during the
ten years. The increase of Illinois
was over W0, 000, of Iowa over
30O.00O, of Arkansas nearly 200,
000, of Kentucky nearly 300,000,
and these states, adjacent to
Missouri, arc moving onward at
a steady pace.
The figures of new railroad
construction for the year 1W1 are
fresh testimony to the phenomenal
growth of the Southwest.
Oklahoma again leads the states
and territories, except Texas,
with 427 miles of new railway.
Texas built no less than 5H3 miles.
New Mexico is third, with 275
miles. Georgia is fourth with
2IMI miles, and Missouri fifth with
1K9 miles. Indiana is sixth, 174
miles, and then again the South
west comes in with Indian Terri
tory, 157 miles, and Arkansas,
155 miles. The aggregate of
new railroad constructed during
Connecting The Orean.
The new Hay-Pauncefote
treaty removes the diplomatic
obstacles which hindered the
construction of a canal across the
continent, in Central America.
The report of the canal commis
sion presents the judgment of
experts that the Nicaraguan route
is the best. The attitude of
Congress promises prompt action.
So the connecting of the Atlantic
and Pacific oceans, which has
been a dream of adventurous
spirits for centuries, approaches
realization. The e n t c r p r i se ,
when begun, will have behind it
the resources of a great nation;
and the canal, when completed,
will be the property of the United
States, operated and controlled
and its neutrality guaranteed by
the United States alone.
That one nation should spend
two hundred million dollars, and
probably more, in building a great
public work in the territory of
another nation is unprecedented.
It is justified by the factthat the
new waterway will bring the
commerce of the Pacific coast ten
thousand miles nearer the ports
of the eastern coast. At present
the distance by water from San
Francisco to Cadiz is less than
the distance to New York. The
cutting of the canal will end this
anomaly, and in proportion to the
length of the waterway will save
to commerce a greater distance
than any other canal that has
been or could be built.
The canal will promote general
peace and international commerce.
It will be open to the ships of all
rations on equal terms, and will
lighten the cost and lessen the
time of transportation for all.
The day which witnesses the
turning of the first spadeful of
earth on the canal and the day
on which the first vessel passes
through it will be historic days
for the United States and for the
whole world. Youth's Companion.
James McNeil Whistler was
recently dining with a friend in
London. Suddenly, when all had
dined and were back in the
drawing-room, Whistler said that
he had almost forgotten it, but
he absolutely must write a letter
and get it off by the night's post.
He was told that in a room at the
head of the first flight of stairs
he would find the lights burning
and pens, paper and ink at his
disposal, lie went up and pres
ently there was heard a series of
bumps, ending in a heavy thud at
the foot of the stairs. The master
had tripped, lost his balance, and
came near having a bad fall.
The host ran to him and asked if
he was hurt. "I am not killed,
if that's what you mean!"
Whistler replied, "but, tell me;
who built those stairs?" The
host mentioned the name of a
builder unknown cither to
Whistler or to fame. "Humph,
he did, eh? Thed d teetotaler,"
said Whistler The Argonaut.
A PENITENTIARY TRAKSFORMATIOH
Hud Way To l ite Long,
The startling announcement of
a Discovery that will surely
lengthen life is made by editor
O. II. Downey, of Churubusco,
Ind. "I wish to state," he writes,
"that Dr. King's New Discovery
for consumption is the most
infallible remedy that I have ever
known for coughs, colds and grip.
It's invaluable to people with
weak lungs. Having this won
derful medicine no one need dread
pneumonia or consumption. Its
relief is instant andcurecertain."

On Christinas day in accord
with long established custom,
Acting Governor J. W. Kaynolds
commuted the sentence of a
prisoner in the territorial peniten
tiary. The lucky man was
Ernest Hart, sentenced eight
years since from Bernalillo coun
ty to serve ninety years for murder.
According to the law Hart has
therefore only eight years more
to serve, since in commuting the
sentence it is reduced to half.
The choice of the acting governor
recalls the sensational trial of
Mitchell, Childers and Hart
before Judge Lee eight years
since for the murder of Nicolas J.
Sanchez, a young grocer and
saloon man in South Albuquer
que. The three men were camped
on the outskirts of the city with
a bunch of Colorado ponies. Sells
Brothers circus was in the town,
over where the brewery now
stands. They decided to hold up
the ticket wagon, mounted and
rode to the show grounds only to
find the wagon guarded by eight
men armed with shot guns. On
the way back to camp they passed
the store of Sanchez, who was
alone in the bar, which was
attached to the establishment.
They decided to hold up the
place. Hart was left to hold the
horses. Mitchell and Childers
went in and ordered Sanchez to
cough up. The young man rashly
picked up an old and utterly
useless revolver. He was caught
by the cross fire of the robbers
and instantly killed. Childers
escaped, but was afterward
brought back to testify. The
trial was sensational. The jury
was knocking at the door with a
verdict of guilty for murder in
the first degree against Mitchell
and Hart, when the defendants'
attorneys entered a plea of guilty
to murder in the second degree.
Judge Lee sentenced them to 90
years in the penitentiary. , During
his eight years' service Hart has
become one of the ablest men in
the penal institution. He is the
electrician, has done designing
and draughting, has laid side
walks and built walls and is an
all-around useful man, having
become a lit member of society.
It is stated that he is the author
of a paper on Christian Endeavor
work read before the convention
here on Sunday. Within eight
years more he will be free. Eight
years since he was within twenty
minutes of being sentenced to
death by a New Mexico judge.

Mazztni, whose name is associa

would have taught in school.
"One thing at any rate in all,"
replied Mazzini, "and that is

Not So Very Hard.
Jack's father is a member of a
society for "psychical research,"
and Jack has heard and overheard
a good deal about mindrcading
and thought transference. His
mother has had periods of alarm
lest her son's mental development
should outrun his physical health.
Recently, however, the boy
organized a "mind class" of his
own, the members consisting of a
number of playmates whom he
had induced to join cither by
moral suasion or by bribes; and
his mother, after overhearing the
problem which closed the session,
concluded that . the strain on
Jack's mind was not so severe as
she had supposed.
Jack had left the reluctant
class in the hall while he repaired
to the pantry. In a few minutes
his mother heard his address to
"Now you've all got to think
hard and quick," he said, briskly.
"How many doughnuts have I
got in may two biggest pockets?
The boy or girl that guesses right
will get the two doughnuts that

you can only have one apiece."

"All Doctors have tried to cure
catarrh by the use of powders,
acid gases, inhalers and drugs in
paste form. Their powders dry
up the muctious membranes
causing them to crack open and
bleed. The powerful acids used
in the inhalers have entirely eaten
away the same membranes that
their makers have aimed to cure,
while pastes and ointments cannot
reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has
for many years made-a close study
and specialty of the tre-atment of
catarrh, has at last perfected a
Treatment which when faithfully
used, not only relieves at once,
but permanently cures catarrh,
by removing the cause, stopping
the discharges, and curing all
inflammation. It is the only
remedy known to science that

A learned judge who was one
of the guests at a dinner was
unexpectedly called upon to reply
to a toast. Recovering somewhat
from his surprise, he said that
his situation reminded him of the
story of a man who fell into the
water while he was fishing.
With no little difficulty he was
rescued, and after he had regained
his breath and was in fairly
comfortable condition, his -escuer
asked him how he came to fall
into the water.
"I did not come to fall into the
water," replied the unfortunate
fisherman. "I came to fish."
