mate is based on offical figures. Millions of money will be spent in wages for
labor, and nearly all of this will come back to El Paso directly and indirectly soon
after it is disbursed by the government. It is expected that the El Paso cement
company will land' most of the cement contracts amounting to more than $500,000.
There is no reason why the hay, grain, and feed stuff, as well as the meat and pro
visions for human beings, should not be bought in El Paso through local distribu

fiom this city or from the Pearson mills. Hardware, tools, and implements, har
ness and saddlery, explosives, furniture and bedding, etc, should come from El
Paso merchants- tl ...
The disbursements in this city, directly and indirectly, as a result of the con
struction of the Rio Grande project will run $50,000 to $250,000 per month while
the great work is going on. This city will begin to feel the effects very soon when
the work of building the railroad and the other preliminary constructive operations
are begun. After the court renders a final decision in the condemnation case it
will be a week or so before -bids can be called for, then it will be a month berore
bids can be opened. Before the first of August there should be several hundred
men employed at the dam site and work should be well under way.

It is well to remind land owners once more that the government as soon as it

The Increased Insurance Burden,
THE fire insurance companies repeatedly assert that risks in El Paso have
never been "rated" heretofore--that is, scientifically adjusted. The same
thing is alleged to apply to all the other risks in the state of Texas- It
follows logically that all the hundreds of fire insurance companies that have been
doing business in the United States, some of them a century, have been operating
without any knowledge of the business they were trying ,to conduct; it follows
that they have all been working in the dark and losing money at a tremendous
rate without knowing how to stop the drain. Such a deduction is, of course, ab
surd. There can be no other explanation, or justification, however, for multiply
ing by two, by three, by four, by five, or by six the rates that have prevailed pre
viously and up until now.
Nothing has happened in El Paso to increase the fire risk to double or triple what
it was three months ago, and on the contrary, everything that has been done in
tlds city in the last few years has tended to reduce the fire risk. We have been
tearing down old buildings and fire traps, improving our fire department and water
supply, taking out oil lamps and other artificial lights and putting in electric under
a strict electrical code, we have been paving our streets, extending our fire limits,
building fine modern structures, enforcing the sanitary laws and fire inspection,
and in a hundred ways we have been improving conditions here locally with re
spect to fire risks and decreasing the actual loss per capita. ,
But on top of all this the fire insurance coiSpanies swoop down upon us with
a percentage of increase that amounts to doubling the total amount sent out of this
city every year for fire insurance premiums. It is outrageous, unjustifiable, and
oppressive, and the action of the companies, should be fought to the last ditch in
the courts and out. If it is possible to secure safe insurance from companies not
licensed to do business within this state, and consequently not subject to the rules,
this should hedone. The question of mutual insurance should be looked into yery
thoroughly by those interested
It s not right that this city should submit to such a hold up. We need this
$200,000 or $250,000 a year of extra premiums worse than the fire insurance com
panies need it. The companies have combined under cover of law to take $250,000
a year more, than they are entitled to away from this city and deplete our working
capital by just so much. If there is any way to defeat the purpose of the com
panies the policy holders in this city ought to find it and use it m self defence.
If we could manufacture our own brand of weather it might be different, but
probably wouldn't be -as good for us.
The chamber of commerce has taken up with determination the question of the
new fire insurance rates and will compile a full statement of comparative rates
to submit to the state board at its meeting June 20. Let every merchant and
property owner cooperate in this work. All that is necessary is to send to The
Herald or to the chamber of commerce a brief statement, showing the old rate and

Soothing syrups naturally OQcupy the
first place in the list of habft-fbrming
agents. Under this title will be briefly
considered soothing syrups, baby
syrups, "colic "" cures," children's
anedynes,. "infants's friends" and
teething concoctions. It has long
been known to the medical profession
that these products as a rule contain
habit-forming agents, but the majority
of mothers have been and still are ig
norant of this fact, although some de
gree of publicity has been given the
matter during recent years.
Lest any suspicion or fear should be
aroused in the mind of the mother by
the fact that the presence of opium,
morphine, chloroform, cannabis indica,
or some other harmful agent is declared
upon the label, the manufacturer or
dealer endeavors to allay such fears by
statements of the following character:
"Contains nothing injurious to the
youngest babe;" "Mothers need not fear
giving this medicine to the. youngest
babe, as no bad efects come from the
continued use of it."
Statements of the following character
were also made in connection with pre
parations containing morphine or opium
or both, before the Food and Drugs Act
went into effect:
"This valuable remedy does not con
tain any opium, morphine, laudanum or
paragoric," and "It is free from all

Numerous cases of this character are
on record. In some instances, in which
the remedy is freely used and the child
does not succumb, there Is developed a
case of Infant drug addiction. As soon
as the effect of one dose passes away
the child becomes Irritable and fretful,
with the result that another dose is ad
ministered. The craving Is met, and
the child quieted, a condition which is
analogous in every respect to drug ad
diction among adults. Sometimes these
children look plump and healthy, but
as a matter of fact their flesh is soft
and flabby and they withstand attacks
of illness very poorly. The chief active
agents of soothing syrups are well
known to be opium, morphine, heroin,
codein. chloroform and chloral hydrate
in some combination.
Soothing syrups containing habit
forming agents, used without discrimi
nation, 'undoubtedly leave their impres
sion on the delicate organs of infants
and induce tendencies which under un
fortunate circumstances in future' life
may be aroused to activity and develop
an evil habit of one form or another.
The question arises: How is this con
dition to be met?
The sighs of the times point to two
ways education and the withdrawal of
the" dangerous articles, both measures
appearing to be necessary. At present
there are on the market, intended to be
used for children, several mixtures free
from the customary habit-forming

and trade subjects. Lantern lectures
will show the part (taken by nursery
men in the growth of the nation. Sev
eral discussions will be devoted ,to soils
and fertilisers, with a special refer
ence to the production of nursery stock.
The nurserymen of the United States
have proved to be very progressive, al
though as yet they depend upon Euro
pean producers for nursery stock to
the value of $2,000,000 a year, only
one-fourta of which is made up of
bulbs and flowers. The nurseryman,
as the Inspiration of the fruit grower,
has contributed largely to the horti
cultural development of ! the country.
"While sometimes issues arise between
the nurseryman as the producer of the
raw material, and the horticulturist,
as the producer of marketable fruit,
in the main their two industries are
closely allied. Thousands of orchards
are producing today which never would
have existed had it mot been for- the
combined missionary wprk and sales

tives of the nurseries. Nurserymen

The modest small nursery of three

to a large extent by the greater organ

there was unlimited competition, a free

men had not yet had the "fear of bugs"
implanted in their hearts. l
The nursery business shared the fate
of most other businesses, in the era of
rapid development following the Civil
war, in that It was corrupted and vic

The New York state authorities last
year informed the federal department
of agriculture that the destructive
brawn-tailed moth had been discovered
in a shipment of seedlings received
from France. Later, colonies of this
same pernicious Insect were found In
Ohio on seedlings imported from the
same part of France. It Tvas found that
800 shipments of these seedlings had
been made, destined to points divided
among 35 states. In 13 of these states
nests of the brown-tailed moth were
found. This illustrates how quickly a
destructive insect pest may be distrib
uted throughout the country under
modern conditions of commerce. These
shipments were traced by the voluntary
co-operation of the federal and state
governments and the principal rail
Quarantine Inspection Urged.
1 The lesson taught by this incldenr,
according to the progressive nursery
men and government authorities, is
that there is dire need of a federal
law which will prohibit the importa
tion or interstate transportation of dis
eased or affected nursery stock, or
of pernicious Insects. m
To make this law effective, it is pro
posed to establish a systen of quaran
tine inspection which would stop at
