Wednesday, October Second, 1912.
PRESIDENT TAFT is playing the shrewdest possible political game in re
maining in retirement just now. His record is well enough known to voters,
and he is no match for the others as a campaigner. He could not, if he
would, effectively meet Bryan, and Wilson, and Roosevelt on the stump; he has
no oratorical power, no power of impressing an audience, none of the personal
magnetism that sways crowds. Wilson has little enough of it, but he is far ahoad
of Taft in his ability to put words together in a way that pleases if it does nol
convince. Taft is holding, if not winning, support while he remains quiet '
Wilson is bettering his position by making himself more widely known to the
people in a personal way. Roosevelt, with all his magnetism and popularity, is not
helping himself by his campaign, neither is he sacrificing any votes. It is probably
fairest to say that the average voter had made up his mind as soon as the Demo
cratic convention had adjourned, and thatVery few votes have been changed or
are going to be changed by the campaigning of any of the candidates.
.The work of the compaign committees, however, is of another sort The cam
paign committees work upon an entirely different oasis from the campaign spell
binders. Spellbinders often strengthen men in their previously formed convictions,
but they seldom turn a vote from one side to another. Campaign organizers, how
ever, if experienced and competent, approach men from an entirely different angle,
and often do swing votes from one side to another during a campaign.
After all is said and done, party regularity is a fearful and wonderful thing.
It is probable that a great many voters whose hearts are with the third party
movement, will -really vote in November for one of the old line candidates. The
third party is a symptom, but it does not mark a crisis. Human nature runs in
grooves, and the grooves cut by the two old parties are worn right deep.
Wilson's best chance lies in the fact that he has no bitter, violent enemies. He
has no very ardent friends, politically, but party regularity will work for him,
and there will be a strong element among the voters which will abandon Taft be
cause it thinks he cannot win, and which will vote for Wilson to defeat Roosevelt
Taft's greatest foe is. popular and party indifference, due partly to his indis
cretions and partly to his personality. Wilson's worst foe is not his comparative
newness and inexperience in national politics, but rather the dubious record of his
party. Roosevelt:s following is made up of two groups: first, that gathered upon
a. basis of purely personal admiration: and allegiance; second, the elements of
revolt which accept him. as a prophet of a new dispensation because he is avail
able as a tremendous power in personal leadership.
If you are guessing about the result of the election, try to get away from all
consideration of what you, individually, think or desire, and from consideration
of what your friends think about it, and from considerations of the respective
candidates; and consider only one thing, namely the relative efficiency of the
political machines and campaign organizations of the different parties in the dif
The voters may be divided into two groups: first, those who have made Up
their minds beyond the likelihood of change, and these are the vast majority;
cecond, those who are wavering, and most of these will, at the show down on elec
tion day, vote by force of habit for one of the old line candidates. Every man who
will vote for Roosevelt has made up his mind. Every man who will vote for Taft
will vote for the party rather than the man. Wilson will receive votes of two
kinds: old line Democrats who will vote the party ticket regardless of the man, and
Republicansor independent voters who will vote for the man in spite of the party
which is sponsor for him.
New York state will decide the election. No candidate can win this year
without New York. Roosevelt will win a few states, he will throw a number of old
time Republican states into the Wilson column, he will very greatly strengthen
Wilson's chances everywhere, but he has no chance of election. As things stand
now, it is almost exactly an even break between Taft and Wilson.
J How We Make Unfriends
SENATOR FALL is performing notable public service, directly in behalf of
El Paso's serenity, safety, business interests, and future welfare, when he
denounces the manner in which American government officials have played
the game of the Mexican consuls and other Mexican officials in border cities to the'
certain imp Irment of the old time friendly feeling. American officials have carried
the play so far in some instances that it has appeared to many observers as if the
American officials were really working for the Mexican government and were con
sequently disregardful of American rights, feelings, and interests.
On the other hand, though Americans with their army and civil power have
played president Madero's game from start to finish, president Madero and the
Mexican government have never evinced the slightest appreciation for all the work
that has. been done and the Trillions that have been spent by the United States to
keep Madero in power. So it appears that wc have failed to please or satisfy
either side, and that wc have aroused the active enmity cf the reb:ls without re
ceiving even a friendly nod of approval from the faction Uncle Sam has been trying
The degree to which the people of El Paso and of Douglas have allowed them
selves' to be harassed and wronged by American and Mexican officials acting in
common, has been wonderful in itself; and much of the harassment has been alto
gether unnecessary and ill advised, and often due to the petty importance of soma
minor officer rather than to any consistent working out of a broad national and
international policy. But there is another phase of the matter which remained
for senator Fall first to point out. the hateful espionage of respectable and law
abiding Mexicans temporarily residing in this city,' which espionage became so very
annoying as to drive these people away permanently and as to create in their
hearts a feeling of just resentment that we should tolerate such treatment of the
respectable and law abiding citizens of a friendly nation under the guise of pre-,
El Paso is gradually coming to realize that she has been "used" to her own
disadvantage by the people who are playing the game on both sides of the line. A
little more of the Douglas spirit would do us good, ueoause it would have a strong
tendency to strip the pretence and fraud from the situation and bring our inter
national relations along the border back to the old basis of mutual respect and
mutual regard. Fcr the sake of creating a precedent, and of restoring in a measure
the dignity of the civil power and of American citizen rights, it is to be hoped
that the state authorities of' Arizona will press their cases to the last notch
through all the courts to final determination.
FINE crop of Russian thistle, broken
rusty wire is being raised on nearly every residence street in the city,
alcng the strip between curb and sidewalk where there ought to be a fine
wide parking strip, planted in frees, grass, and flowers, and kept in fine shape
under city supervision.
No matter how much asphalt paving we put down, no matter how many mil
lions we put into new buildings, El Paso will never have comely residence streets
and an appearance of comfort and well kept beauty until we adopt the 30 foot
driveway and wide curb parking plan all over the city on every street that is not
to carry a street car line or to "become a main highway of through traffic
To pave the driveway, on an ordinary residence street, more. than 30 feet
wide is wasteful and foolish, and it is a mistake that can never be repaired. The
parking is cheaper, a!nd better, every way, and of permanent benefit to the whole
community, especially to the owners and tenants of abutting property.
Among business men there seems to be a general desire to defer the proposed
bond issue Until after the spring election. The public mind is receptive, however,
and would no doubt be glad to consider a full statement by the mayor of the imme
diate necessity for the three issues. The mayor asks for $200,000 for the water
works, $150,000 for sewers, and $50,000 for street work. So far practically no
effort has been made by the administration to inform the public in detail upon
the matter. The administration can no doubt carry the bonds by the .use of the
political machinery, if it wants them very much.
I HAD some fell diseases; my backbone and my kneeses were racked by bitter
pain; and I had influenzy, that drove me to a frenzy, and water on the

eye a stye; I doubt if any duffer could sit around and suffer more earnestly than
I. I took the doctors potion, his bitters by the ocean, his capsules by thepeck;
the neighbors heard my groaning, and often they were honing to come and break

hovel, and go and take a shovel, and dig around for bait; forget to shake and
shiver, forget your lights and liver, and get your smile on straight." There isn't
much of hair on the dome of Uncle Aaron, but inside there is sense; he kept

The Walke was driving ahead through
the heavy seas with the full power of
her engines, when Lieut. Charles R.

liaise Game for Food.
A number of farmers in the .western
states are becoming keenly alive to the
possibilities of raising elk and deer as
a substitute for beef and .mutton and
are urging a modification of the game
laws of their respective states to make
possible the killing of these animals a3
they are needed for food. Owing to the
abuses of the privileges of hunting a
generation or more ago many species
of game were in danger of becoming
extinct and laws were needed to pre
vent this. Now, however, it has been
demonstrated that by intelligent propa
gation, both by states and by private
enterprise, many .of our depleted ranges
can be restocked with big game and
that this process, with proper laws for
its utilization, will add materially to
the food resources of the country.
A number of varieties of deer and elk
have been found capable of breeding
under semi-domestic conditions. One
of these Is the Rocky Mountain elk
which, next to the moose. Is the largest
of the American deer. Its range origin
ally extended as far east as the Adiron
dack mountains and western New Jer
sey, southward as far as the lower
Alleghenies and northern Texas, New
Mexico and Arizona, and westward as
far as the Pacific coast. Now the range
has. become so limited that the animals
are found In only a few scatered lo
calities outside of the Yellowstone
national park and the mountainous
country Burroundrng it. Smaller herds
still occur in Colorado, western Mon
tana, Idaho, eastern Oregon and in cer
tain parts of Washington and northern
California. In addition to these wild
herds there are a growing number in
private game preserves and parks, as
well as In nearly all of the zoological
gardens of the country. The herds in
captivity form the nucleus from which
under wise management some of the
former ranges of this animal are being
restocked so that a profitable b-uslness
may be built up from raising elk veni
son for market.
Demand for Elk Meat.
The flesh of elk. although coarser and
therefore more like beef, is In son.e re
spects superior to other venison and
there arc now several large ranches in
the west where the raising of elk has
be sunnlled in-considerable Quantities.
ii tne increase continues tnerc is no
reason why it should command Its pres
ent high price, as Tenlson can be pro
duced with much less care and expense
after the herd is once established, than
can either beef, or mutton.

now engaged In the industry, the elk I
adapts Itself readily to almost any en
vironment and does well even in com

crease is fully equal to that of cattle.
A number of other species of deer. It
Is believed, may be ea'slly bred to fur
nish meat in commercial quantities.
The Virginia or white tailed deer, which
is the common deer of the United
States, can be raised In most parts of
the country and according to the expe
rience of a number of breeders, can be
easily domesticated. It has boen found i
profitable upon some of the large
western ranches to turn deer or elK into
the sheep pasture. They act as pro
tection to the sheep and usually eat
much of the same food, although they
browse upon shrubs which are out of
reach of the sheep. In this way they
have an added use- In clearing brush
Ilrccd Rabbit For Market.
A few years ago there was a craze
for breeding Bclgicn hares- as a meat
supply and like many other fads it soon
ran Itself out. While wild rabbits have
alwavs been utilized to some extent in j
cold part of the year, they have never
been used as a food here to the extent
they have in England, where the home
warrens and farms are drawn upon to
their fullest capacity, and In addition
from 12,000 to 15.000 tons are imported
annually, partly from the continent
and partly from Australia and New

when it was found thct thc-much talked
of Belgian hare irns in realitv but lit
tie superior to tho ordinary rabbit the
business almost collapsed. Now with
the need of an Increased meat supply,
attention is agaiji being directed to the
value of the rabbit. Breeding rabbits
for market is again becoming popular
and the bureau of biological survey of
the department of agriculture is giving
additional attention to the development
of the stock and the best means of
caring for it. In England rabbits com
mand about the same price as poultry
and it is believed that by degrees it
may be possible to popularize them to
almost the same extent In this country.
During the past year there has been a
great increase in the number of rabbit
breeding farms established here.
More- Goat Meat Ik Sold.
Despite much prejudice, which the
anin-al does not altogether deserve,
there Is a growing amount of goat meat
fold in the United States for food, and
the number of goat herds, especially in
the southern states, is also increasing.
There are now estimated between two
and three million goats In this country,
according to a recent animal vensus.
This includes the common variety and
also the Angora goats of which there
are about a million. These last, how
ever, have little to do with the food
supply, as' they are being bred cuiefly
for the mohair wool which is produced
from their fleece. The common goats
are raised also for their hide, but
this does not prevent the utilization of
the meat as food If properly prepared.

Prejudice Against Goat Meat.
The prejudice exislting against the
connon goat as ai rrtlcle of food is as
inconsistent as any human vagarv up
on i.eord. It is usually based upon the
supposed heterogeneity of the goat's

A Cause For Divorce - By Dorothy djx
A WOMAN in Cincinnati has asked
for a divorce from her husband
because he persists in- going
shopping with her.
And right she is. too. There are cruel
and inhuman punishments that no man
has a right to inflict' upon his helpless
and defenceless wife, aid having him
tag along with her whenjshe goes forth
to a department store heads the list of
crimes against feminine ieace and hap
piness. Xo woman coidd be expected
to stand such a thing. So woman will.
Even a female worm will turn when so

any man who will go shepning "with his
wife, except under compdsion, is not a

logical freak, and she would have no
trouble in proving in any court that he
was afflicted with exiggeratcd ego
maniac depressive insanii, and general
cussedness, and was not safe to live
with. ... .
Also his conduct in desiring wjo

There are points of view that the
sexes never get on each other.' A wo
man, for instance, cap never understand
why when a man is particularly hippv.
or particularly miserable, ne goes out
and gets drunk and acquires a headache
and a dark brown taste in his mouth.
She can't see where the fun comes in.
A man can never comprehend why,
when a woman is particularly happy or
particularly miserable, she goes out shop
ping, and "buys things that she doesn't
need nor want. He can't see what con
solation there can possibly be in three
yards of lace insertion.
But the wise man realizes that in
some occnlt fashion, beyond the grasp
of the male mind, Shopping does take
the place of other dissipation to a wo
man, that it 13 a sacred joy to her. so he
lets it go at that, arid Jocsn"t interfere
with her happiness by intruding his un
sympathetic presence at her buying or

shopping she doesn't want any carping,

free to give her soul up to an ecstasy
of chiffons. Therefore a proper husband,
with the right sort of feeling about him,
hastens forth to his business to make
the money to pay forthe bargains, while
wife goes forth in search of them. Thus

As for the man who buys his wife's

boots on in the last generation.
Tennessee' also contains Lookout
mountain, up which the Union troops
climbed in 1863. without waiting for the
elevator. It also contains the beautiful
Cumberland river and several sections
of the writhing Tennessee river, wh.ch
flows throutrh a country where o carts
still hold the speed Tecorfls and the
steamboat reigns supreme.
Tennessee has authois and night
riders, young reformers and old women
who smoke pipes, fine uni-.ersities and
log school houses, society leaders and

Pome of Tennessee has gone backward
