Need Of Efficient Cooperation
L PASO must think imperially. "We have no small destiny to fulfil, ana
we must think and act in broad enough circles to take advantage of the
mwinTiiniries offered to us. One reason for the marvelous growth of Los
Angeles is her broad way of looking at things. True, Los Angeles is today perhaps
six times as large as El Paso, hut the Los Angeles of 40,000 or 50,000 population
was a live, forward city, knowing not the meaning of the words "to fail" or "to
hesitate." There never was a doubt in the mina of any citizen of Los Angeles as
to the future of that city, and in those earlier days there was a marvelous degree
ef earnest cooperation among the people in constructive work.
Illustrating the way Los Angeles goes at big things, may be mentioned the
recent vote of the people for a bond issue of $3,500,000 to begin the developing oi
power along the city's new aqueduct The chief engineer estimates that the power
to be developed on the aqueduct will be equivalent to more than 840,000 tons of
coal per year and will be worth $3,000,000 per year to the city.
SI Paso has greater natural advantages than Los Angeles ever had or ever
will have: The one thing lacking here is efficient, constant cooperation among our
wn people in progressive efforts.
If Roosevelt lets his party leaders in New York pick him to save the party,

Municipal Dance Halls
MAYOR SEIDEL, of Milwaukee is not waiting for the mayoralty chair to
get warm under his Socialistic weight before beginning to inaugurate plans
for the betterment of his city and people, and if he can find the proper
officials to support him in his work, and keeps up the pace he has set himself, he
is going to make a remarkable record for efficiency, even though some of his, do
ings are curious and unusual. v
Only nine days in office, according to the New York Sun he has already in
augurated more reforms than many mayors put into practice during an entire
term. He started in by establishing a corps of city plumbers who will repair
broken water and gas pipes and charge the taxpayers for the actual time con
sumed (this as a slap at the plumbers' trust); has put one man in as manager
ef the board of public works instead of three, paying the manager $4000 and
chopping off three salaries of $2500; has announced that the city law department
will give free advice and opinions t all persons not able to engage legal services,
especially if the persons have grievances against corporations; has notified city
employes that eight hours will constitute a day's work and that all will be
docked for absence (in the past, six hours was a day's work), and has ordered
a closing of all dance halls operated in connection with saloons, establishing in
their stead, Saturday night dances in the public school houses, where chaperons
and music will be furnished by the city and no charges will be made.
He also declares that no licenses will he renewed by his administration for
any saloon that allows women or girls to patronize it or that sells drinks to any
of the dance halls such as curse most of the American cities and draw young
girls to ruin
Discussing the dance hall question, the new mayor says:
"At best the Saturday night dances are held in small, dngy halls, places
which are a menace to health. There is no ventilation and all of the halls
practlcallv are near saloons. The police will not allow a dance to be held In a
hall directlv connected with a saloon, but being near saloons there is certain
to be more or less drinking:. How much better It would be if we could get all
these people together in large well lighted halls. I will try to do this through
Li c school lH)3.Trd
"Iam certain we could secure women capable of handling girls to act as
chaperons, and men could be secured to look after the boys for boys will be
bovL Sufficient music, at least as good as is provided In the smaller dance
halls could be secured at little cost. I do-not like to stop the old fashioned
Since unless I find a substitute. I realize that many a hard working boy or
Slrl looks forward the entire week to fun on Saturday night and sleep as long
as he wishes on Sunday." I
Mayor Seidel says he is not proposing this as a temperance argument, for he
kimself drinks beer occasionally. f
A baseball'fan needn't be batty, even if a player should.
Don't let the enumerator miss you. El Paso needs to have every person
counted and it is your duty to help. '
Some people are a whole trust company in themselves, inasmuch as they
will trust nobody but themselves:
NOW comes our young friend Chauncey Depew with the interesting informa
tion that this is not the aviation age of living, regardless of senator Ben
Tillman W. J- Bryan, Tom Campbell and other Democrats who would have
us believe that an unjust plutocratic tariff hill has put up the cost of beefsteaks
to such a price that only Republicans can afford to eat them.
Mr. Depew, though yet young in many ways, has lived a long time and he
has been gathering some figures on the cost of things during that time, he says.
In most instances the ordinary things of life are not as high now as they were
in 1834 when he first saw the light of day and his daddy and other daddies
of three children, were struggling to fill the family larder at $338-10 a year. The
same family the same size family Mr. Depew says, would now have to pay only
$312.90 for the things that cost his hard working old father $338.10.
Mr. Depew made public what he knows about the cost of living at a banquet
given in his honor the other day in New York-he did not say that he could live
on the $312.90 a year, "but he gave figures of the government to show that others
can do it and maintain a wife and three children; he only maintains the wife.
"I have not much sympathy with the people who say that the present cost
of living is out of all proportion and that it is due to national extravagance and
mistakes," said the senator from New York.
Reading dispatches in The Herald from the southwest, it is clear that this
region is not yet out of consideration as a cattle producing center. Shipments in
large -numbers are being made from all points about El Paso.
A minister will have to be a mighty interesting fellow these days to keep

year, minus the fireworks?

Ancestral Fighting Blood
From Philadelphia Record.
Truly characteristic of a woman's
convention the session of the Daught
ers of the American Revolution broke
up in a big row today and the girls
from California said they didn't care;
they -were treated too mean for any
thing, and they were going to put on
their hats and go right home. And
even at that the daughters from the
coast, as they embarked at the Union
depot, were not a united' body, and
made some snappy remarks about state
rights, constitutional rights, suede
gloves and hat pins.
The two factions represent the dele
gation from San Francisco and Los
Angeles, who for some time have been
having an interesting little state scrap
of their own, and finally suceeded in
having their troubles aired in the na
toinal convention of the order. The
women from the Pacific coast lost
their temper when the convention re
fused to Tecognize the state election
held in California some time ago.
Although, according to the constitu
tion of the organization, the election of
state regents held previous to the con
gress have no validity, the congress has
not failed hitherto to legalize the
choice of the .state. When the Califor
nia daughters recently named Mrs. Car
oline Kelley Laird as their regent they
had no doubt that she would be duly
elected, and great was their surprise
when a "dark horse" candidate, Mrs.
Mary F. Spilson, was chosen last even
ing at a meeting held in the California
room at Continental hall.
Today, despite the bitter protests of
the Laird adherents, who charged bad
faith and trickery, Mrs. Spllson's selec
tion was ratified by the congress.

MEXICAN" LABOR O.UESTION.
El Paso, Tex., April 27th, 1910.
Editor El Paso Herald:
Allow me to put In a word about the
Mexican laborers passing through El
Paso, and what I consider, the benefits
derived by the city therefrom.
It seems to me that anyone desiring
to write on any subject whatsoever,
should first get at the facts of the mat
ter he wishes to put before the public,
and then give (hem as they are.
There are eight labor agencies in the
city; their expenses amount to about
$12,000 monthly: $6000 of this goes to
the local merchants direct, and the
other $6000 Is paid out in wages, rent,
Besides the above, we must also con
sider the amount of money that Is spent
here by these laborers when they re
turn from their work on their way
home. I cannot say how much that Is,
but, I assure you It is quite an item.
As to these men being criminals,
why, any man who will look at them
NO LIMIT TO THE CONVENIENCES
AND CONDITIONS THEY MAY IMPROVE.
THE American Electro-Chemical
society, composed of leading
mining engineers and others
whose work carries them into the fields
of both electricity and chemistry, will
meet in annual convention in Pittsburg
next week. This organization has been
in existence for about a decade, and in
that time it has so wedded the sciences
of applied electricity and chemistry as
to produce a new science. This new
science Is named Electrochemistry. It
is declared that we are on the very
threshold of an electrochemical age.
Founded on Invention.
When Beccaria found that he could
produce a chemical change by the use
of electricity, reducing metalic zinc and
mercury from their respective oxides,
he made himself the father of electro
chemical science. Since then wonder
ful progress has been made, and hun
dreds of transmutations, miracles of
matter, have been wrought. Since the
organization and the solidification of
the electrochemical interests in the
American Electrochemical society, the
profession has made the most won
derful strides and stands today as one
of America's leading exponents of the
true theories of conservation, now the
great issue of a great nation. What It
seeks to do is to utilize the waste pro
ducts and the Inexhaustible resources
in such a way that they will protect
and conserve the resources that are
likely to be exhausted.
To Conserve Coal Supply.
Take the matter of fuel conserva
tion, for example. America is consum
ing untold millions of tons of coal in
the manufacture of iron and steel. It
may not be feasible to protect the oal
supply by having all transportation
carried on by hydro-electric methods
but it has been proved feasible to sub
stitute the electric furnace for the
blast furnace and the open hearth fur
nace In the making of iron and steel.
And this electric furnace can just as
well be heated by the river that runs
unharnessed to the seas as by the
coal that soon may be exhausted. It
has been proved that the electric fur
nace can be made hotter, the heat can
be better regulated, and the " product
refined through it turned out In better
shape than the blast furnace. The
United States steel corporation is now
conducting tests with the electric fur
nace that may yet revolutionize an in
dustry as it has not been revolution
ized since the invention of the Besse
Supplying Nitrogen a Detail.
More essential to large crops than
any other known substance Is nitrogen.
For years we have been buying our ni
trogen from Chill. In the shape of salt
petre, and the rest of the world has
been doing likewise. Annually we send
$13,000,000 to Chili for nitrogen, while
In the free air above a good sized city
block there Is enough nitrogen to equal
all that we bring from Chill In a year's
time. The electrochemlst has "watched
the locust tree and the clover gather
nitrogen from the air. and now he
comes along with a result not materi
ally different from that of the locust
and the clover, although the process Is
entirely different. By a process too
technical for explanation here, the ni
trogen is gathered from the air by
electricity and stored in some suitable
material for Industrial use, just as one
might store water in a sponge.
In Norway this process has ben re
duced to a commercial practicability,
and it confidently is expected that
cheaper methods will be brought about,
and that fertiliser as rich as nitrate
of soda may yet be had for less than
common marl costs today. The mind
can scarcely grasp the stupendous re
sults that yet may come from this dis
covery. A few dollars worth of nitrate
of soda scattered on an acre of ground
at the proper times will usually double
the yield of the crop sown on it. With
nitrogen taken from the air at a reas
onable cost the whole food problem of
the earth might be revolutionized.
Reduced Price of Aluminum.
The science of electrochemistry had
its beginning industrially In 1SSS. when
It was first used in the manufacture of
aluminum. When this process was
adopted aluminum was 'selling for $12
per pound. Since then the price has
gone down to about 40 cents per pound
and the production has increased nearly
a thousandfold. It is believed that
aluminum will yet become as cheap as
Jron, and the fact that a method of
autogenous welding has been discov
ered, which overcomes the difficulty of
finding a suitable solder for It. will
make it of additional value indus
trially. By this'" process aluminum sheets,
rods or tubes of any thickness can be
welded without difficulty and the joints
are said to be as strong as other parts
of the metal. One of the directions
from which the use of the metal is ex
tending is in the manufacture of pans,
and other utensils used in the wax
refining and jam boiling Industries,
and see their eagerness to get out to a
place where they can earn a living ai-'
save a little money: see the preference
thej give to companies that treat them
with consideration and paj better
wages, would not believe that. Merely
looking them over would convince any ;
unbiased man that they were only la
borers looking for a place in which
their labor will bring better returns
than they can expect in their own
country. Perhaps some criminals do
get through and pass off as laborers,
but, I consider one percent much more
than the real number.
Such a thing as these laborers bring
ing into this country lewd women Is
hardly thinkable: the Immigration in
spectors are particularly careful when
women are among those that apnly for
admittance, and w hen a woman passes j
the Inspectors, you can be pretty sure
that she ha a right to.
L.et us consider that these laborers
are the cause of almost $150,000 being
brought to this city every year to be
turned into the channels of commerce,
and that" their work throughout the
west and southwest is doing more good

May Collect Gold from Sand Wastes.
It "is now believed that no one neec
ever fear a famine In the supply of
gold. Just. at the time when it seems
that the world's annual output must
soon begin to wane, electrochemical
methods have been offered whereby
pure' gold may be gathered from the
very sands of the seashore.
In Arizona and New Mexico there is
to be found sand beds of vast extent
which contain at least $1,, worth of
gold to the ton, and in some Instances
assaying $7 per ton. All along the
Pacific coast from Mexico to Alaska
gold bearing sand is to be found. The
electrochemlsts have devised methods
whereby the gold can be extracted. It
is true that these methods are as yet
too costly to make them commercially
profitable where the yield per ton of
1 tion of those acquainted with the sub-
ject that the cost yet may be reduced
to a- basis where It can be done with
profit. In that event the supply that
could be secured would be sufficient
to meet all of the demands of civili
zation for fresh supplies of gold.
Heat Produced Remarkable.
The hottest heat known until the
advent of the electric furnace was the
oxyhydrogen blowpipe. There were
hundreds of times when the chemist
sighed for some greater heat, feeling
sure that if he could have a thousand
degrees 'more he could work miracles.
Then came the electric furnace. The
possibilities of the heat it will yield
are limited only by the power of the
essential parts of the furnace to with
stand it. Sometimes the heat is so
great that the furnace melts. Hero
energy is transformed into heat, and
i if there is precaution taken to pre
j vent radiation there is theoretically
j no limit to the temperature that may
be created. So practical has the use
of the electric furnace become that at
