BIB SHIPMENTS OF
Mount Franklin Could Be
Blown Into the Gulf
Enough dynamite to blow Mt. Frank
lin Into the Gulf of Mexico passes
through El Paso each weeTc almost
enough, anyway. At least 50,000 pounds
of nitro is shipped monthly ' to or
through "this port, and one firm makes
weekly shipments of about ",7 500
pounds of black powder.
"Powder is an Industrial -hprmnm-ter."
says F. P. Thomas, representative
of the Denver exchange of tie E. T. Du
Pont Powder companj.
'When powder comes it nuans prosperity-,"
he said in the lobby of the
Sheldo.i this morning. "At present there
is lie le gclng on in El Paso 'n mining
operations yet there must be nearly
50,000 pounds of dynamite shipped here
each month, besides the black powder
we send Into Mexico. Even in the big
cities of the east powder is an indica
tion of industrial advance. Subways
and civic improvements of many sorts
need powder, and, stone, since stone is
being used for building instead of brick
that uses still more.
"No, there is little danger in ship
ping powder nowadays. If for instance
you figure how much boes through El
Paso in box cars and how few acci
dents you have that will be seen. A
special commission, the Tallroads'and the
powder companies have allied in fight
ing the danger, especially In the last
Of course Mr. Thomas does not handle
any dynamite himself. He merely
handles paper representing dynamite.

Many j-ards of firm, thick satin were used in the development of this
evening cape, which is built In two sec tions. The outer side of palest rose

The lining, of deepest rose-hued satin, matches the hand embroidery of
the wide flat collar, which also is soutache braided.
The white silk frock ha a rose en iff on tunic, embroidered with white
chenille, and the rose chip hat is edged with deepest rose velvet and wreathed
with white roses.
The Joint Postal Commission in 1907
reported as follows :
"It appears too obvious to require argument that the
most efficient service can never be expected as long as the
direction of the business is, as at present, intrusted to a
Postmaster-General and certain assistants selected with
out special reference to experience and qualifications and
subject to frequent change. Before the Postmaster
General and his assistants can become reasonably familiar
with the operations of the service they are replaced by
others, who, in turn, are called upon to resign before they
can, in the nature of things, become qualified by knowl
edge and experience to perform their allotted tasks.
Under such a system a large railroad, commercial or
industrial business would inevitably go into bankruptcy,
and the Post-Office Department has averted that fate only
because the United States Treasury has been available to
The public accountants' report said :
"The work of the Department and its development is
hindered all along the line by slavish adherence to old
methods and to precedents created in previous years, and
many reforms which might otherwise be instituted are
hindered if not entirely prevented by appeals to the -decisions
of the Comptroller, made, perhaps, many years
ago under entirely different conditions. Then, again, ' "
the conservatism of Government officials is a generally ;
admitted fact. There is no inducement to employees to
suggest improvements in the service for the reason that if
these improvements result in greater efficiency or economy
of administration they will receive little credit; and, on
the other hand, if new methods are not successful they
will be charged with the whole blame."
'n view of these official statements
by those whom Congress authorized to in
vestigate the Post-Office, we submit that
the Postmaster-General's attempt to wipe
out the deficit in his Department by.xaising
the postage on your magazines, instead of by
devoting his energies to securing legislation
that will place the service on a sound, effi
cient and economical basis, is unwise and
unbusinesslike. The nature of his recom
mendations, and the attempt to exempt
newspapers from any increase, are final -grounds
for a divorce of this great business
department from politics. "

DEATH EXDS DIVORCE SUIT;

San Antonio, Tex., Feb. 25. In the
death of P. A. Wagner a divorce suit In
which he was the plaintiff terminates.
The suit was pending in the 45th dis
trict court. Wagner had sued his wife,
Mary Wagner, on the grounds of aban
donment, alleging that she had left hun
and gone to California. Two attempts
have been made to get service on Mrs.
Wagner, but both have failed. In the
eyes of the law she is not yet cog
nizant that her husband contemplated
The law says she has the right to re
turn to San Antonio and institute claim
for whatever her husband has left, and
as Wagner was possessed of a consider
able amount of property it is expected
that she will return to the city and
claim the estate.
