"SB time there was a man of brain who early learned to strive and strain,
and make each passing -minute count; and 50 he climbed up Fortunes
mount, and took possession of the top; and there he heard the failures
yawp. Their voices came from far below, surcharged -with hatred, malice, woe.
"It's true he passed us on 'the way," he 'heard the sad-eyed failures say; "but he

Capyrlght. 1908. by George Matthews a. oam.
The Chamizal Settlement
R. KNOX has promised an early settlement of the Chamizal claim. All El
Paso hopes he will be able to keep his promise.
El Paso is not afraid of her clear title to every inch of the city, but
to have it settled permanently and understood between the governments ofthe two
countries would dispose of the idle talk of "faulty titles."
Only last week, a story went the rounds of the newspapers that a decision
had been rendered which "throws El Paso in Mexico," and then the dispatch went
iato details about what might happen if the decision was not "reversed." The
question does not involve "the city of El Paso"- it merely involves a very small
strip on the extreme southern end of the city five blocks wide in its widest place,
and much narrower in other places. It is true, the land is valuable, but it is no
considerable portion of El Paso.
The United States has steadily had possession of and exercised jurisdiction
over the territory and Mexico never laid any active claims to the land until a few
years ago. The United States will hardly see fit to surrender such territory to
the Mexican government. There is every argument as to why it should remain
United States territory and none yet established as to why it should become
Only on one condition would Mexico have a claim to the territory and that is
if the river should have made a change by evulsion. There is no evidence to estab
lish this; the Warder contestants failed to make a case in federal court a number
of years ago and -Mexico has not as yet been able to show proof any stronger
than these individuals produced.
It is not that El Paso is in the least afraid of losing any of her territory that
El Pasoans want this question settled, but it is the damage that false impressions
flo the city that makes us impatient. As an example, the matter is not even under
stood at home, in our own state. Down at San Antonio, where the Business Men's
club is operating a press bureau to advertise San Antonio and surrounding country,
this bureau sent out a story last week that could greatly damage El Paso in the
eyes of investors; the Chamizal matter caused it; there was no ground for the
story, but readers in the east are likely to think there is; that is where the injury
is done to El Paso in keeping this Chamizal matter unsettled. The San Antonio
report follows in part:
"Mexico's claim from the point of view of international law is sound enough,
but it is not thought that the sister republic will prove very stubborn in the matr
ter. In the event El Paso should pass under the control of Mexico this country
would lose a very progressive and prosperous community with some 35,000 inhabi
tants. "Mexico's claim is due to the fact that the Rio Grande, forming for the great
er distance the boundary between the two countries, has the rather embarrassing
characteristic of changing its bed. Xarge parts of its valley are of an alluvial na
ture and- frequently the river will cut off large slices from either side and throw
them to the other. In view of the fact that international law fixes the boundary
line where it is established by rivers by following the center of the main channel,
this has proved at times to be very annoying." '

THE iron and steel market is taking on new life with the opening of spring
and indicates a better and more stable condition than any that has existed
for a long time. This indicates a general resumption of the bigger manu

The Iron and Trade Heview, in its Pittsburg correspondence, reports this evi
dence of prosperity as follows:
The break in the unusual winter conditions which has existed all over the
country and which retarded movement in all lines has been followed by a genuine
improvement in the general iron and steel market. Sound evidence of the change
for the better is found in the fact that there is an increase in new bookings and
specifications in practically every line. Some of the .new buying comes from un
expected sources and there is a decidedly optimistic feeling on the part of both
makers and consumers with regard to the outlook for the remainder of the year.
Jibst (mills are running full time and have enough tonnage on their books to as

TVifeh the possible exception of pipe and wire products, all branches have bene

there has been no improvement in promised deliveries. IMill operations have been
affected slightly on account of the railroads and other' consumers of bar iron not
covering for their season's requirements
Vast tonnage is involved in new structural work coming out and makers and
fabricators anticipate a busy season. Rail mills are fairly active, total bookings
for. the week showing a slight increase. More activity is shown in the semi-finished
steel market- There are reports of price concessions on small Bessemer billets
for desirable -tonnage, but the market,4aken as a whole, is firm. Makers of plates
are optimistic and anticipate,heavy bujing shortly.
James J. Hill pretty nearly always says something every time he talks.
What the old railroader said yesterday had some mighty truths in it.

had two pets In a double hutch, and
one or the other of them kept gnaw

their quarters. When she approached
on tiptoe she was certain that the
sound of gnawing came from the side
nearest her, but upon lifting the lid

up in the straw apparently fast asleep.
She replaced the cover and listened. This
time there could be no mistake about
It. Raising the lid the second time the
