At the meeting of the city
council Monday night. Council
man Abran Abeyta, in response
to a query " to the city's linan-
cial condition, explained that
several years ago the city's rcv-
enties amounted to $'),IMMI a year,
that they now amount to only
Í1.H0O a year, and that the city's
indebtedness was then oii,uii;,
which has now been reduced to
'42,ii()0. Mr. Abeyta closed his
remarks by paying a glowing
tribute to Mayor Cooney's ad
ministration. All that was well
enough, but it did not answer
the query. Anionic the questions
that occupy the minds of the tax
payers of Socorro are these: Kx-
actlv what is the amount of the
city's revenues now, and from
what sources are they derived?
Kxactly what is the amount of
the city's expenditures, and what
are the items? Kxactly how
much money, if any, is there
now in the city treasury? If, in
answer toi those und'olher reason
able queries, any city official will
make public a business-like and
satisfactory statement ot the
city's finances, the Chieftain will
do its best to make known the
fact that certain dark suspicions
now occupying the public mind
are without foundation.
Spanish War. The Agricultural
Department, with its various
ramifications, spends only six
million dollars a year, or about
the amount received from the ex
port of canned b..-ef or of manu
factures of tobacco.
The navy costs a few million
dollars less then the army. The
total cost of the war ami navy
departments is not much greater
than the pension appropriation,
which is now the largest singlo
item. Youth's Com dan ion.
Twki.vk years ago the phrase,
"a billion-dollar Congress," was
used in reproach.
The best reply that the speak
er of its house of representatives
could make was that this was a
billion-dollar count nr. So rapid,
however, has leen the expansion
of the activities of the national
government since that time thüt

amount to a billion and a half,

(i.hmany's newspapers are
showing a sensitiveness over the
remarks made by Admiral Dewey
which ought to create some
amusement in this country. The
admiral's talk, in making a com
parison between the navy of the
United States and that of tier
many, to the disadvantage of the
latter, was inconsiderate, but he
has told the President that no
otTer.se was intended to (ienr.any.
He merely wanted to show, by a
concrete illustration, that the
United States could hold its oven
on the ocean against any Kuro
pean power, excepting possibly
lint the Ilerlin papers do not
accept this explanation. They
declare that Dewev is vain
and boastful. They say, more
over, that the United States'
easy victory over Spain, a fourth
rate power, has inflated Ameri
can pride in its navy beyond all
reasonable warrant. All these
things show an irritability on
the part of (érmany which is
foolish, and which can h.neno
other effect in this country than
in exciting laughter. Of course,
the admiral should have recog
nized (icrman sensitiveness, and
ought to have bren more careful
in his comparisons. There has
been too much loose talk recent
ly among soldiers and sailors
not only in the United States,
but in Kngland, Germany and
Yet the American people can
not help feeling pride in their
navy. In all the wars in which
the country has been engaged
the navy has given a good ac
count of itself. It showed up
well in the war of independence.
In the conflict of 1 SI 2-1 5 it won
imperishable laurels. It was the
mistress of the seas which the
Americans were lighting in
those two wars. The victories
which were gained against Spain
live years ago were in line with
those which were won against
au iinme.-.surably more powerful
enemy at an earlier day. Sea
; fighting h carried on today under
! radically different conditions
from those which prevailed a
J century ago, but the chance;, arc
! that even airainst the most
potent of the naval powers of the
world of the present time the
American sea fighters wouid hold
their own. - C.loK-Democrat.

"When I ha 1 an attack of grip
last winter (the second one) I
actually cured myself with one
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Eemedy," suys Frank W. Perry,
editor of the Knterprise, Shorts
ville, N. Y. "This is the honest
truth. I at times kept from
coughing myself to pieces by
taking a teaspoonful of this rem
edy, and when the coughing
spell would come on at night I
would take a dose and it seemed
that in the briefest interval the
cough would pass off and I would
go to sloop perfectly free from
cough ami its -accompanying
pains. To say that the remedy
acted as a most agreeable surprise
is putting it mildly. I h.id no
idea that it would or could knock
out the grip, simply because I
had never tried it for such a pur
pose, but it did, and it seemed
with the second attack of cough
ing the remedy caused it to not
only be of less duration, but the
pains were far less severe, and I
had not used the contents of one
bottle before Mr. llrip had bid
me adieu." For sale by A. K.

The greatest danger from colds
and grip is their resulting in
pneumonia. If reasonable care
is used, however, and Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy taken, all
danger will le avoided. Among
the tens of thousands who have
usrtl this remedy for these dis
eases we have yet to learn of a
single case having resulted in
pneumonia, which shows con
clusively that it is a certain pre
ventive of that dangerous dis
ease. It will cure a cold or an
attack of the grip in less time
than any other treatment. It is
pleasant and safe to take. For
