"New Mexico Pays
AQUAS.TER CENTURY ago New Mexico was regarded ,as one of the most
promising gold and silver mining regions in the United States. Capital and
mining promoters were flocking in and many of the mines whose very
names are all hut forgotten were then producing in marvelous richness and bring
ing New Mexico into universal fame.
Some of the richest mines were exhausted as to their highest grade ore before
the mining was developed very far helow the surface. Capital was diverted into
other sections and the rush of miners and prospectors ceased. The great develop
ment in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, and other states came along to attract the at
tention of mining men. The development of transportation facilities m New Mexico
stopped, the people who had been holding on in expectation of better times became
discouraged, and out of it all New Mexico got a black eye.
Years went on and still very little was done to improve the transportation fad-ties
of the territory. The railroads were slow to build branches and even the
construction of wagon roads was very backward. As a result some of the most
Promising mining sections have long lain idle. A comparatively few individuals
have informed themselves as to the richness of these fields and have tried to in
terest capital in their development, but with indifferent success owing to the fact
that the public has to be educated all over again upon the importance of New Mex
ico as a natural storehouse of the precious metals.
The tide is turning. There is more and more interest developing every day in
precious metal mining in New Mexico. Capital and experienced mining men are
coming in and rich properties are again being opened up. It is becoming under
stood that New Mexico has some of the richest gold deposits in the world, and
some of the most easily accessible so far as the mining operations themselves are
concerned. Of course the transportation problem is almost as baffling as ever, and
the New Mexico railroads are slow to extend into the undeveloped mining regions.
It is good, to see El Paso taking a direct interest in the new mining develop
ment of New Mexico. A company has recently formed to undertake milling opera
tions on a commercial scale in the Black range north of Silver City. This company,
while financed mainly by outside raining interests, will have a large enough-local
representation both in capital and in men to insure El Paso's interest in the gen
eral development of that region.
El Paso has not at this time much money for investment in outside proposi
tions, but she can perform splendid service by advertising New Mexico's resources
far and wide and doing what she can to turn the stream of capital and of practical
and competent men this way.
"New Mexico pays" is a good slogan for the campaign.
A little patch of green in the front yard is worth every cent it costs.
It can rain in El Paso all it likes, but it never gets muddy just as it some
times get warm but never hot and sometimes cool but never cold. El Paso is the
ideal place to live.

The Star That Dazzles
SOME men when they get on the star and uniform of a police officer seem to
consider themselves superior to all law and to all the principles of human
rights. Instances of abuse of private rights by police officers are becoming
altogether too common. Some officers will shoot and kill a man while the victim
is trving to run away and escape after' some trivial misdemeanor. Such homicide
has not the shadow of justification. Officers will maul and handle citizens rough
ly without provocation or excuse merely to show their authority, or to save their
An officer has no right to arrest any man without cause, and the officer and
bis bondsmen are liable in case of false arrest Following a similar line of logic,
an officer has no right to assault or injure a citizen unless in self defence; an offi
cer has no right to use force more than necessary to effect an arrest in a case
where a crime or misdemeanor has been committed. The practice of slugging a
drunken man over the head and brutally beating him into insensibility is outlawed
in every civilized city, and by so much as we fail to enforce reasonable regulations
in our police department we can not claim to be civilized. In some cities the police
officers are even required to take drunken men home rather than arrest them, pro
vided they be not creating a disturbance or committing overt acts against peace,
person, or property.
In every case where a police officer exceeds his authority and commits assault
he should be prosecuted and proceeded against by the citizen aggrieved just as if
the officer were an ordinary private citizen. The punishment in such cases should
be personal to the offending officer and every official of the local government
should do his part in securing punishment of an officer when he deserves punish

on the first day of January, 1907, it was
not until the first day of July of that
year that funds for the enforcement of
the act became available. That those
three years have brought about a vast
change in the manufacture and sale of
food stuffs and drugs is a well known
fact; how vast this change has been is
shown by the statement -that three years
ago a large proportion of the food and
drug manufacturers supplying the
American trade practiced adulteration
and deception in one way or another;
while today Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief
chemist of the department of agricul
ture, estimates that 90 percent of the
former violators are complying with the
requirements of the pure food and drug
