elements of health, wealth and
happiness are in it.

in this matter. If Judge Free

assumed the duties of his position
as commander of the department

criticize Senator Hoar's utteran

President Roosevelt immediately
advised the doughty general to
confine his exercise of the stren

the duties of his department and
to refrain from the discussion of
questions of public policy. A
man of General Funston's active
temperament is sure to find the

irksome to be long endured. To

LETTER BT DELEGATE RODET.

Delegate B. S. Kodey has writ
ten the following letter to the
Washington, April 15, 1902.
The Editor Boston Transcript,
Dear Sir: I see by your issue
of.thelOth instant, that the Mer
chants' association, which held a
meeting at Young s hotel the pre
vious afternoon, took occasion to
go out of its way to pass a reso
lution objecting to the admission
of New Mexico, Oklahoma and
Arizona to the Union as states.
Indeed, Mr. I'M i tor, the strug
gling territories in question, who
are making a great right for their
common rights with other parts
of the nation, did not expect a re
solution of that kind to emanate
from the city of Fancuilllall and
Bunker 'Hill, and the home of
Wendell Phillips. The only
thing the inhabitantsof the three
territories have ever done with
reference to the city of Boston is
that they have been guilty of pur
chasing a large amount of mer
chandise, such as shoes, crockery,
rattan furniture, and many other
things, from its merchants for
from twelve years to a half a cen
tury last past, but may be they
can be made to see the error of
their way and stop it. Indeed,
the territories in question are
loath to believe that this so call
ed Merchants' association repre
sents the general opinion of the
good people of Boston. I will be
thankful if you will publish this
letter. Very truly yours,
B. S. KODEY,
Delegate in Congress from New
Coiicoxftiuu And (oniproinlne.
As Congress draws near the!
close of a session it work, seen '
in review, seems to have been the
adoption of a series of compro
mises. The recently enacted
Philippine tariff law, allowing
twenty-live per cent remission of
duties on imports from the archi
pelago, was a compromise be
tween conceding nothing, of
which the House was originally
in favor, and the t'fty percent
concession for which Governor
Taft aiked. Almost numberless
compromise plans have charac
terized the prolonged discussion
of the Cuban tariff question.
The amounts finally carried by
the river and harbor bill for vari
ous improvements are sure to be a
compromise between what the
government engineers have re
commended and the minimumout
lay which economical statesmen
think would suffice. The tUte
in.'Ut applie also, practically, to

Thk query, "Is there a beef
trust?" presents itself to the coun
try with considerable emphasis.
The men at the head of it still
contend that there is no combina
tion. Everything which is being
done by the meat men is legiti
mate, they say. They declare
that it is impossible to control the
prices, and these fluctuate from
day to day. This will probably
be the answer which will be made
in the courts when the govern
ment's suit begins.
But the advance which has just
been made in the beef prices in
New York shows pretty conclu
sively that there is a combination
between the men at the head of
the great supply companies.
Though there is some fluctua
tion, the general tendency is up
ward. It is safe to say that the
price a week hence will be high
er than it is to-day. It is higher
now than it was a week ago. Of
course the drought last summer
and the consequent reduction in
the hay and grass crops and in
the supply of meat will account
for something of the advance, but
the upward tendency can not all
be referred to the decrease in the
supply. The shrinkage has not
boon great enough to make all the
difference in prices which has
been scored in the past few weeks.
A very interesting situation
will come when the government's
case against the trust goes before
the courts. It is the administra
tion's intention to ascertain
whether there is a trust or not,
in the common acceptation of the
term, and if there is, a strong case
will be made against it. Attor
ney General Knox has been in
structed by the President to press
the suit with all the resources
which are at the command of the
government. It is well known
to the country that the Republi
can party is the party which has
passed the antitrust laws, and
that it is also the party which has
enforced them. That the laws
will be enforced in the present
case, if it is shown that there is
really a combination in restraint
of trade, nobody doubts. The
beef trust, if there be such a
thing, will feel the heavy hand
of the government upon it just
as koon as the case now being pre
pared is ready for presenta
tion. Globe Democrat.

School of Mines of Good Standing.
The New Mexico School of
Mines is daily demonstrating its
worth to the territory. Under
the directorship of Professor F.
A. Jones it has achieved a stand
ing the equal of any school of
mines in the west. It offers to
the young men of New Mexico a
thorough and practical training
for mining and civil engineering
and also provides shorter courses
for those desiring to become
metallurgists and assayers. Be
sides fitting young men for these
callings, the school also carries on
researches along original lines
and is doing much toward secur
ing and spreading a better knowl
edge of the geological formations
of the te rritory and the mineral
wealth to be found in the differ
ent, mining districts. Its com
plete metallurgical and assaying
apparatus enables the school to
make accurate assays of all kinds
of minerals submitted to it and
all in all it has become an impor
tant factor in the development of
the mineral riches of the terri
tory. Santa Fe New Mexican.

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 mucuous membranes
causing them to crack open and
bleed. The powerful acids used
in the inhalershave 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 treatment 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, stepping
the discharges, and curing all
inflammation. It is the only
remedy known to science that
actually reaches the afflicted parts.
This wonderful remedy is known
as "Snuffles, the guaranteed
catarrh cure" and is sold at the
extremely low price of One Dollar,
each package containing internal
and external medicine sufficient
for a full month's treatment and
everything necessary to its perfect
"Snuffles" is the only catarrh
cure ever made and is now
recognized as the only safe and
positive cure for that annoying
and disgusting disease. It cures
all inflamation quickly and
permanently and is also wonder
fully quick to relieve hay fever or
cold in the head.
Catarrh when neglected often
leads to consumption "Snuffles"
will save you if you use it at
once. It is no ordinary remedy,
but a complete treatment which
is positively guaranteed to cure
catarrh in any form or stage if
use according to the directions
which accompany each package.
Don't delay but send for it at
once, and write full particulars
as to your condition, and you will
receive special advice from the
discoverer of this wonderful
remedy regarding your case
without cost to you beyond the
