Avoiding;' Doable Taxation
A SECTION" which the New Mexico constitution makers might with great
advantage insert in the fundamental law of the new state is a provision
to exempt from taxation all loans or evidences of loans upon real estate
mortgage security. The essential fairness of such exemption is obvious to every
intelligent man -who stops to think about the subject of taxation as affected by the
laws'.xsually prevailing. The owner of-property is supposed to render his property
at full Value, taking no account of any deferred payments he may still owe. The
creditor lolding this man's paper secured by a mortgage on the property already
taxed is required by law to render the amount of such loan for taxation and
ubject this mere paper evidence of capital invested to a second mulcting by the
jtate and local tax authorities.
This so plainly constitutes double taxation that it would seem as if argument
were unnecessary, and the worst feature about it is that the borrower must finally
pay the tax. A creditor will not submit to gouging of this sort 'because he does
not have to. The man who borrows money pays all costs, including those imposed
by the tax 'gatherers. Such a system of double taxation as exists in this state and
in almost every state in the union simply makes it harder for men to borrow'money
for their legitimate purposes.
If the New Mexico constitution makers desire a model after which to pattern
in instituting, this very desirable reform, it may be found in the constitution of
Louisiana, which is one of the very few states to have taken this sensible and
advanced view of the proper objects of taxation. The following is the constitu
tional amendment adopted in Louisiana two years ago covering this point:
In addition to the property now exempted from taxation by
existing laws, there shall also be exempt from taxation loans made
uporijthe security of mortgages granted upon real estate situated
7rfJtluE state, as well as the mortgages granted to secure the 'said
fojlns and the notes, bonds or other written instruments evidencing
the said loans, whether in the hands of the mortgagee, or his or
their transferees; and all loans made by life insurance companies
to their policyholders, upon the sole security of policies held by
-the'borrower in: the company making tire Joans, as well as all. notes
cr other written instruments, evidencing such loans; provided, that
" in the -case of loans upon policies of life insurance, as aforesaid,
the rate of interest charged upon such loans does not exceed five
percent (5) per annum discount.
Such action on the part of Louisiana establishes it indisputably as one of
the most progressive states in the union.
Pennsylvania is one of the states in which first degree murder must carry the
death penalty and the juries have no discretion as to life imprisonment for this
crime. Such a rule in. this section would simply result in turning more murderers
loose, for juries seem increasingly disinclined to pronounce the death penalty, even
in the most flagrant cases.
The lawyers of Las Cruces ask the constitutional convention to establish
county courts, the county judges to be "men learned in the law." It might -also
be well to require that they understand and speak English without an interpreter.
It seems too bad that an English speffcing American cannot even probate a will in
gome counties in New Mexico without hiring an interpreter to present his case to
the Spanish, speaking judge.
We may all flout the idea that we are dependent on .Wall street for our
financial and business health; but it is to be noticed that the whole country leaps
at the first suggestion of returning activity on the stock exchange following the
stagnation of recent months. An active stock market may not be a cause of
national activity and prosperity, but it is generally regarded as a pretty good
indication of business health; the psychological effect of activtiyor depression
in Wall street is felt in the remotest communities of the United States and with
out doubt affects the feeling. of the people generally and the working out of their
plans. Just now there are evidences of a distinctly better tone in New York
financial, and investment circles, and tne whole country begins to breathe more
easaly as a result.

HEN a girl marries a man

for any other reason than the jone
she ought to love.
It stands to reason that a young girl
cannot fall in love with an old man.
Sometimes a girl gets a silly idea into
her head that her ideal man must be
middle aged and blase; must have tried
every side of life and grown weary of
it; must be cynical and have lost faith
in all mankind, especially womankind.
The romantic little goose thinks that
she will marry him and restore hi3
faith. She neve: thinks how her young
spirit, will rebel against his year3 and
his lack of enthusiasm.
Cannot Restore Youth.
The man to marry is one within ten
years of your own age. A man who
will still have enough spirit and go in
him to enjoy fun and the natural pleas
ures of youth.

Women age more quickly than men,

II CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGNS.
THE first congress of the United
States under the constitution was
chosen in a haphazard fashion
that did not arise to the dignity of a
general campaign. Americans seem .o
have the naoit of believ.ng. that thei
political world vas called into being,
by a constitutional fiat in the -f.iv
1787. Important as that constitution
has become in later years, sacred as it
now is, the people ; tne country in
1788 gave it no reverence and 'were
persuaded with difficulty to accept it in
the nature of an experlmpnt.

Senators All Federalists.
All of the senators, having been elect

the constitution, were Federalists. Fif
tj -three of the 65 representatives also
were Federalists, but in the house
there was a tiny minority of 12 anti
Federalists who had been elected
chiefly because they had been opposed
to the adoption of the constitution. It

Eliminations From Forest Reserves
ON January 1, under an order just issued, 383 square miles are to be elimi
nated ,from the. Alamo national forest, lying east of Alamogordo, N. M.
The addition of 35 square miles chiefly valuable for forest use has already
taken effect. The large area to be eliminated has been determined upon careful
survey to be more valuable for agriculture and grazing than for present or future
forest use. The eliminated area covers most of the comparatively barren strip
along the railroad and foothills north and northeast of Alamogordo up to the line
of scrub timber.
The elimination is strictly in line with the established policy of the forest
p ervice to withdraw large areas where it seems desirable to conserve forest cover
ing and then after withdrawal to institute thorough surveys with a view to rectify
ing the lines of reserved territory. These withdrawals have been taking place
steadily all over the west, and the consistent following out of this policy will go
far to disarm much of the criticism heretofore directed against the forest service
by stock raisers, agriculturists and would be homesteaders, who could never un
derstand the reasons for the temporary inclusion of large barren areas in socalled
The truth is these areas are now for the first time being thoroughly surveyed
and classified, and it was far better that the original withdrawals should be too
extensive rather than too meager. It is easy to let go what is not needed, but it
w,ould have been difficult to extend the lines of many forest reserves if the
original withdrawals had ,been too scant.
If even half the, things were true that the opposing party politicians are say
ing about each other, this blooming old republic wouldn't last 20 .minutes.
A note of wisdom from the state railroad commissioner of Iowa. He has seen
a great light, and heVis not at all selfish about reflecting the refulgent ray. Says
he, "The railroads and the people should have a better understanding and be fair
to each other. People "want and ought to have safety. There should be more
double tracks, better depots, better service, and better connections. Iowa should
adopt a systematic policy ofv eliminating dangerous grade crossings. The freight
rates should be increased, if necessary, to follow out this policy." This remark
is in striking contrast to the attitude of the average corporation-baiting legis
lature and state executive; the too common rule in the state governments is to
enact two or three dozen laws the ultimate effect of which is greatly to increase
the cost of railroad operations, and then on top of that orgie of demagogic excess
otart an agitation for 2 cent passenger fares and cheaper freight rates.
SWALD CURTIS sat amongst a
cheerful group of friends in his
studio. They all lookedxat Os

world, and none of them looked at
his paintings, which were the worst
paintings in the world.

him courage for an. agonizing moment,

take it. But if you want specially to
raise money just now and won't bor

must be thirty yards of good framing
in this place." ,'
"That wouldn't help," said Oswald
gravely. "My frame-maker Is a grand
old fellow, and if I did get anything
for the frames I should think It a
moral obligation to pay him first. But
I'll tell you what I want to sell a

ROMANCE OF AN ACADEMY PIC
TURE. Those who remember Mr. Os
wald Curtis's last Academy picture,
"The Murderess" and who does not?
will be interested to hear of a ro
mance which attaches to that magnifi
cent work of art. The striking figure
of the woman grasping the knife whilst
her beautiful face is convulsed with
thrilling passion, was drawn by Mr.
Curtis, not from an ordinary studio
model, but from a charming young
lady of his acquaintance.
A wealthy young New Zealander who
chanced to be in England, saw Mr. Cur
tis's picture at the recent exhibition,
and fell violently in love with the orig
iral. He was present at the Academy
every day, and stood conspicuous
amongst the admiring crowds that al
ways surrounded the picture. At 7n:f
he contrived to obtain the artist's pri
vate address and since he has haunted
his studio in Glenthorne Gardens Th
artist, though sympathizing very keen
ly with the youth, has not yet felt jus
tified In giving hi any hint as to
the identity of the lady even though
the Impassioned lover has threatened
to commit suicide. "Good." murmured
Brook to himself: "it gets the studio
address in beautifully. That's a nice

was his first."
He called a taxi, and whirls nff n

The Murderess," is reported to be un
der the consideration of the Chantrey
trustees, is at present Involved In a
curious difficulty. The model for the
!i 5!nF y handsnie figure which
thrilled all beholders, was a well
known society lady a charming wid
ow with a very large circle of ac
quaintances. Mr. Curtis originally in
tended to paint her as Lady Macbeth,
and she sat for him on that -naa-n.
standing. However, at the last mo
ment, before the picture was sent to
the Academy, an- acuie critic pointed
out that the face of the model, though
beautiful and highly dramatic, was rar
too modem to realize one's idea of
Lady Macbeth. So the artist hurriedly
altered the title tc "The Murderess.'
Wnen his model discovered that all
her friends identified her as the
original of the picture and that in her
own circle she was playfully spoken
of as the murderess, she was serlnnsTv
annoyed, and instructed her solicitors
to take proceedings for libel. It is to
be hoped, though, for the sake of the
charming model, and of the most prom
ising of English artists, that the case
will not have to be fought out In
a quarrel with the wharfmas-er at Al
exandria in Virginia. His ship was
discharging and taking on cargo at
Alexandria, and yet he was aotirg un
der the authority of Marylaud law in
defying the Virginia authorities 30
feet away. This condition of affairs
was intolerable. Efforts to Induce the
state legislatures to grant the conti
nental congress power to control the
tariff and to regulate commerce, had
But in the Virginia legislature Mr.
Madison brought up the case of the Al
exandria wharfmaster and the foreign
shipmaster and succeeded in procuring
authorization for a conference of Mary
land and Virginia representatives for
the establishment of mutual commer
cial regulations. This conference,
which met at Alexandria- and later
moved to Mount Vernon, decided to In
vite the other central states Penn
sylvania, New Jersey and Delaware
to subscribe to the same system of
commercial treaties. Out of this grew
the Annapolis convention which in turn
called a constitutional convention
which submitted to the people of the
states that document which created
the American republic.
Fight on Ratification.
When the constitution was submit
ted, the people at once divided into
two parties, these urging its adoption
taking the name of Federalists and
those in opposition that of anti-Federalists.
By the middle of the summer
of 178S eleven of tie states had rat
ified the constitution and elections
were held in the various states for rep
resentatives, the legislatures chose the
senators, and presidential electors
were selected in five states by the
people, and in the others by the legis
latures. In some states each district
chose its representatives in congress
when it pleased, while in. others there
was a statewide election day. Most of
the elections continued for three days
and the voting was viva voce.
The continental congress after the
close of the war had been treated with
slight consideration and generally was
held in open contempt. There Is no
good reason to believe that the mass
of the people expected the new experi
ment in government to succeed. The
senators and 'representatives elected
to congress were so careless as to de
lay their attendance, so that more than
a month was wasted in vain efforts to
i than had been manifested in the first
election, and this the first "off
yar campaign resulted in the election

When the time :ame to choose the
' members of the second congress there
ists. The Federalist victory was
complete, but the senate showed a
change of sentiment that presaged the
coming division, there being 17 Feder
alists and 13 anti-Federalists in the
upper house. In the first congress the
senate had ben solidly Federalist, in
the second congress that party had a
majority of but two.
The Federalists acknowledged the
personal leadership of Hamilton, while
the opposition was captained by Mr.
Jefferson, who soon abandoned the ti
ttle of anti-Federalist and gave his
following the name of Democratic-Republican
party. The members of the
party usually shortened this name to
"Republican," but the Federalists in
derision always called their opponents
"Democrats." In the fullness of time
the name given in derision was adopt
ed in pride, just as the appellation
"Christian," and the party dropped the
co-title "Republican"' and ever since
has been known s the Democratic
party. The word Republican was first
dropped generally In 1824, but remain
ed in use in many states until 1S50.
Federalists Meet Defeat.
In' 1792 Washington was reelected
president, being supported both by the
Federalists and the Democrats. But
the two parties fought har.d for con
gressional control, and, for the first
time, the Federalists were defeated, the
Democrats returning 54 members of the
house, as against 51 Federalists, giving
a Democratic majority of three. But
the Federalists gained in the senate,
where there were IS Federalists and 12
Democrats. In the 'off year election
of 1794 the 'Federalists made violent
efforts ' to gain control of the lower
house of congress, but were not suc
cessful, the Democrats increasing their
majority from three to 13.
" In 1796, Gen. Washington liaving re
