f Now Muzzle the Dogs
THE frightful death of an El "Paso boy from hydrophobia, reported in today's
Herald, should direct general 'attention once more to the necessity for strict
er regulations as to keeping dogs in the city. The awfu agony of such a
, death, not only to the victim but to all whoxare near and dear to him, is un
matched by any other disease that afflicts mankind. A description of this horror
ought to be .enough .to caus'e every citizen to do his own individual part to protect
the community from this terrible thing. ,
Experience in other countries, notably in England and on the continent, has
shown beyond dispute that the prevalence of rabies in animals, and subsequent
hydrophobia in humans, follows a curve exactly coincident with the enforcement of
the dog muzzJing laws- Wherever the vigilance of the officals becomes lax and
dogs run about unmuzzled, rabies and hydrophobia increase; but when the muz
zling laws are strictly enforced, The disease in animals and in humans dies out
9 El Paso, owing to her large proportion of persons of Mexican extraction, who
are great people for befriending nameless dogs, is overrun worse than most cities
by the stray curs that go hungry and thirsty and fall sick with no one to look
after them. The race of dogs multiplies Vapidly under the primitive conditions
prevailing in the Mexican settlements, and no Mexican will ever take steps to xe
? duce the number of pups cast upon a none too friendly world by possibly loving,
but certainly irresponsible, parents.
There is real cruelty to animals in letting the mongrel breeds multiply with
out restriction, homeless and 'Uncared for. The kindest way is to reduce the
number of dogs down to-the poinfwhere every deg -avowed to live will have the
guardianship of a .responsible master o mistress, enjoy some of the home comforts,
pay a tax for the privilege of living, and carry his-collar and tag always about
The unrestricted multiplying of the race of dogs in this city has become a pub
lic nuisance and a very real menace to health and to life. El Paso'shopld take
steps without delay to destroy all dogs whose responsible ownership cannot be
established. Then all the cogs allowed to live should certainly be muzzled when
running at large along the streets.
Muzzling need -not be cruel. The main thing is to have the wire part of the -j
muzzle large enough to admit Tree- action of the" jaws' and tongue- There is no
cruelty in this "and the dog will soon get used to the muzzle.
E Paso has had its lesson in the deaths fros- hydrophobia that have occurred
here. It ought not to "be necessary' to wait until some one in our own family
or circle of intimate friendship is afflicted before our interest is aroused in behalf
of the general safety.

It is a very tactless and not a wholly

OXDOX, England, July 22. Her
bert Henry Asquith, prime minis
ter and head of the government
of Great Britain since April, 1908, is the
first middle class, Non-Conformist, dem
ocratic premier England has ever had.
His predecessor, Campbell-Bannerman,
was democratic, but his wealth and his
landed estates caused him to be classed
with "the gentry." ' Bad four and Salis
bury were of Cecil blood, "born with the
governing instinct." Roseberry was and
is an aristocrat to the tips of his fingers,
and he now appears to repent in sack
cloth and ashes the fact that once he
wa the leader .of the democratic hosts.
Gladstone, a radical -lemocrat bv con-
! vlction wasyet an aristocrat In Instinct
and feeling It never can be forgotten
that ne first entered parliament as a
Tory, the beneficiary of a corrupt nom
ination and a corrupt election, under
the patronage of a notoriously corrupt
duke. Gladstone was like Jefferson in
that the volcanic fires of his political
and philosophical democracy were hot
enough to set a nation ablaze, but not
fierce enough to destroj- his personal
aristocracy. And, like Jefferson. Glad
stone thereby earned from his enemies
the dishonoring epithet "demagog."
D5;rneir Principles Similar.
Of all Mr. Asqulth's predecessors per
haps the one whose origin was closest
to the people was the Tory Disraeli. The I
father of the primrose statesman was a
struggling author, and therefore en
titled to rank in fhe professional class,
but "Dizzy" had to struggle upvsrd
against the disadvantages 'mpc-ed .y
his Jewish birth and his actual poverty.
I'ut whatever his origin. Dissv.;"i cer
tuinlj cannot be remembered :s a cham
pion of democracy.
Mr. Asquith came to his presen- posi
tion of supreme power from a youth of
poverty. He sprang from an humble
middleclass family engaged in the cloth
ing trade, he had no money ht -ro: his
education by winning scholarships and
he made his way to prominence by hard
work at the " law. British prejudice
against lawyers In high politYal place
is marked, and Mr. Asquith is the first
lawyer to be prime minister since the
days of the ill-fated Spencer Perceval
who held office from 1S09 to IS 12.
Throughout his entire career Mr. As
Ojilth has enjoyed no adventitious aids.
He har risen by sheer force of his own
will. He has none of the arts of the
intriguing politician Disraeli, and none
of the oratorical magic of Gladstone;
he has not the wit of a Roseberry, nor
the icy logic of a Balfour; he never can
hope to have the cavalry dash of his sup
porter Churchill, nor the fiery tongue
of the tempestous Lloyd-George.
Asquith Dealt "With Conditions.
The Asquith mind is a legal mind. It
j deaLs with conditions, not theories. An
good husband or wife because you
posses a few morals! It takes more
than morals to make a (worthwhile
man or woman.
Morals are only the platform for the
finished statue. And to finish the
statue we must chip away perpetually j
to the end or this phase of existence.
(From The Herald of this date. 1S96)
Beauty Doesn't Defeat Utility
AUSTEN, Texas, has a beautiful new bridge across the-'Colorado river that was
built at comparatively moderate cost they Jiave extra value for the money
spent.. Except as to its width it furnishes a good model for us to follow
in bridging the Rio Grande. Any new bridges we build to connect Juarez with El
Paso must be nof less than 70 feet wide. Any new bridges should be of re
enforced concrete, in design artistic, simple, dignified, and strong, like the Austin
bridge. With .arjple driveways and the gooseneck lghts, these; Nbrdges to Juarez
would become objects of much international interest monunfents to the lasting
friendship between the two republics.
The proposed concrete viaduct over the railways on the smelter road will
greatly facilitate traffic with upper valley points and improve the western end
of this city- It is to be hoped, however, that utility in the viaduct will not .mean
ugliness. It will be easy to secure beautiful and simple lines, if thought be taken
in the beginning. It will cost no more to have an artistic and! attractive bridge
than to have an ugly one. In fact, a beautiful city in al its details is more a
matter of taking thought than it is a matter of mere money cost.
A notable improvement is taking place in the public school grounds- Nowhere
can an object lessonbe better set before the children to lead them to demand im
proved conditions in tne community. .

Farmers Sell Water To City
L PASO will doubtless be able to get cheap irrigation water from the Rio
Grande project within a few years. It is impractical in a city like this to
run the water in surface ditches along the streets as is done successfully in
smaller towns, but there is no reason why we cannot obtain the wcter very cheap
ly, pump it to a high level and then distribute it over the city in a separate sys
tem of pipes for theare of parks and street parking, and perhaps for fires, sewer
flushing, and street sprinkling at least within a certain portion of the city that
can be economically served in .this way.
Carlsbad, N. M., has just signed a contract with the government for five years
by which the town is to pay $1.25 per acre foot for water, the, same price as is paid
bv agricultural lands within the Carlsbad project An acre foot contains 326,700
gallons; Carlsbad's water for irrigation purposes will thus cost the city about one
third of a cent per 1000 gallons as compared with 12.5c El Paso is paying for
water to sprinkle her parks and streets in other words, Carlsbad gets 34 times
as much water for the same money- The city in futuredll, of course, be paying
this rent to the valley farmers who own the water rights and irrigation works.
The rate represents a net income of 8 percent on the investment.
El Paso will in future be able to obtain a perpetual supply of water from
the canals, -for all but domestic purposes. The domestic supply must come from
the mesa and we must pay what it costs to produce it.
Domestic raisins, prunes, and oranges are rapidly supplanting .the imported
fruits, and in a few years it is expected that the import will practically cease.
Already the American producers are exporting these fruits in considerable quantities-
Imports of hananas, figs, cocoanuts, walnuts, and almonds are on the in
crease. It 4s expected that domestic figs and domestic almonds will gradually
supplant the imported goods. Texas is well fitted for the successful production
of both. The United States imports nearly 540,000,000 worth of fruits and nuts

as the chief champion of the doctrine
of free trade. After all free trade Is
the citadel of the Liberal polity, and If
that fortress should fall the cause of
social reform would be left hopeless for
many years to come.
Although It would have been Impos
sible, even a score of years ago, for a
man of Asqulth's humble origin to have
attained to the high position of premier,
and although he occupies that position
by virtue of the loss of control of the
landlords over the Liberal party, yet it
is Asquith who gives to the Liberal gov
ernment today a measure of "respecta

George V that George had bats in his

nothing and about which Winston knew
a great deal.

in insisting uponthe practical aboli

It Is to Mr. Asquith that the Radicals
must credit the fact that the defections
of moderate Liberals and aristocratic
democrats have been so few during the
two tempestous year; of his premier

speeches are analyzed, they are found
to be quite as radical and equally as
socialistic as any of those utterances
which are "billingsgate" from Lloyd
George and "anarchy" from Winston
Cloie Friend of Roseberry.
That Asquith Is so radical Is cause for
surprise for in the days when Lord
Roseberry was the leader of the Liberal
party and the head of the government,
Asquith was his closest friend. Even
then Roseberry was wavering In his
faith in the cause of democracy and
there was a popular Impression that As
quith was but the echo of his chief. In
deed, Roseberry In retiring sought to
drop his mantle upon the shoulders ot
Asquith, but the distrustful party would
not have It so. Theworthv but mediocre
Campbell-Bamierman assumed the lead
ership - because there was no natural
leader, and Asquith continued to work
in the ranks. But long before Camp-bell-Bannerman's
retirement was an
nounced ever3body knew that Asquith
would be hls successor.
The prime minister was born in a vil
lage of Yorkshire in 1852. When he was
12 years old his father died, leaving
nothing, and young Asquith came to
London to live with an uncle. He en
tered the city of London school, and
there won two scholarships which en
abled him to go to Oxford Tvhere he en
tereoSBalliol college. His career at Ox
ford was a. brilliant one, and after he
left the university he was called to the
bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1S76. It Is in

fact that there was but one other per

commission was summoned to inquire
into the genuineness of a certain letter
which Parnell. the Irish leader, was sup
posed to have written, condoning the
famous Phoenix Park murders, and
which had been published in The Times.
It was Mr. Asqulth's cross-examination
of Macdonald, manager of The
Times, which overthrew the case for
that paper and which convinced the pub
lic that the letter was a forgery even
before the adventurer Piggatt had con
