When El Paso
THE activity of the grand jury and judge Blair in Adams county, Ohio, which
has resulted already in about 1000 indictments and many hundreds of pleas
of guilty of the crime of vote selling, recalls a ridiculous and disgraceful in
cident in this city a few years ago, when wholesale vote buying and selling were
known by everybody to be going en and one man was arrested to make a test
case; he was taken before a justice of the peace and pleaded guilty to the crime
charged, but the justice refused to hold the man for the grand jury and discharged
him with the declaration that he did not propose to make a victim of this one man
when almost everybody else was doing the same thing.
There have been times in the past when an Adams county jury and a judge
Blair in this community might have made a regiment or two take to the grass.
There are other ways of controling the voting now, and the El Paso politician can
hold up his hands in holy horror at contemplating the Ohio disclosures. Ohio has
never been introduced to the poll tax receipt.

A Big Eastern Dam
WE boast with justice upon our big dam and irrigation project, which will be
the largest water storage project ever built by man in the world. The
Roosevelt reservoir of the Salt river project is so far the third largest in
the world; but it may lose this distinction when the great Portage dam on the
Genesee river in H"ew York is completed.
The Genesee iver drains a large area and' is. subject to fearful and destructive
floods. The state commission which has studied the situation has completed plans
ior a storage dam near the falls at Portage, which will cost $4,600,000. The cost
will be divided among the various towns, counties, and individuals that will be hene
jited, and a large number of towns, pities, and individuals are" to be assessed an
nually, for flood relief, amounts ranging from a few hundred to many thousands of
dollars. The proposed reservoir will cover 13.5 square miles and will submerge five
villages and 10,000 acres of farm land now under cultivation. Thirteen miles of
the Pennsylvania railroad will have to be moved. About 30,000 horse'power will
be generated at the dam, and the sale of this power in the manufacturing cities
will go far to carry the fixed charges on the cost-of construction and to meet the
cost of maintenance..
Some of us are apt to -get the notion into our heads that all the big, daring,
and sensational things are in the west these days, b but New York state alone has
a $5,000,000 storage dam, a $100,000,000 canal project, and a $400,000,000 city

The best news for Texas in the last 48 hours is the big rain that has pretty
well covered the north, of Texas. The drouth in that part of the state has been
the worst in a generation. And the suffering and loss have "been tremendous.
Drouth has prevailed in many 'other states, east as well as west. Heavy snows and
& tight winter will be a great ,thing for the farmers.
WESTERN xailroads are carrying on a systematic advertising campaign in
the small weekly newspapers of the eastern states. In most any of the
small town papers one can read about California, Oklahoma, Oregon,
Washington, Montana, Idaho, or Colorado. But nobody would ever guess that west
Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona were on the map.
Of one thing we may be very sure, that whenever we cooperate-for a big adver
tising campaign and show a disposition to help ourselves, the railroads will be ready
to jump in and 'help in ahig way.. The railroads are greatColonizers and great ad
vertisers, but they invariably require the active cooperation of the section they
turn in to develop.
Sentiment in New Mexico among members of both the parties is strongly in
favor of adopting the new constitution, while in Arizona the result will be in grave
doubt, with the failure of the constitution a possibility not at all remote.
New Mexico has more fuel in the ground than any other state or territory in
the nation. Yet we are forced to pay outrageous prices a few hundred miles from

EAR MARY'S MOTHER:
The wedding is over, and with
a heart that broke between joy
and sorrow, you have given your child
into another's keeping. You are glad,
for you know that the natural life, the
best life, for any woman is that of wife
and mother, but, oh, your little girl
looked so little, so young, such a very
babe to you, as she stood at the altar,
so unprepared for all the struggles and
the trials that she was going so blithely j
and ignorantly out to meet, that you
wanted to snatch her away and hold
her safe again in the shelter of your

scornfully. "How dare you say that

which I was banished years ago, and
you alone can help me."
"What do you want me to do?"
"While I was young I did a very

The passing of tne American water

attention. Many organizations are
uniting to secure protection for these
birds. Owing to the craze for feathered
millinery, the greed of hunters, and
several other causes, a number of va

of these birds was on an island off
the coast of Maine in 1847, when some
fishermen slaugntered a large flock.
Now that they are no longer in exist

reduced in numbers that there is said
to be only a small spot along the New

sible each year to kill birds with less
difficulty. So rapidly has this decrease
been recognized during the past 10
years that it is stated upon good au-
, thority that if allowed to continue Un
checked, the American wild duck will
be known to the future student of tho
next generation only through the
"pages of natural history. American
wild ducks are divided into two classes

have to go to the bottom of the water

The national government also ha3

Bird harbors and breeding places have

the first of these being along the coast
of Alaska and on some islands near
Hawaii. Within the past year, the
United States revenue cutter "Thetis"

for the purpose of breaking- up depre
