'Twas Ever Thus
OLD EOX, in his motor, goes by like a gust; the sad, toiling voter is choked
by the dHst "The rich axe too sassy," the toiling one cries; "their nerve
is too brassy, dad swivel their eyes! All things are adjusted unfair in
tins land, and I'm so disgusted I scarcely can stand. The poor man is cheated
clean out of his -shirt, and then he is treated as though he were dirt. The
wealthy employer goes touring around in his old destroyer,' just burning the
ground, he scatters the gravel and gumbo and dust on workers who travel on
foot oh, the crust!" The worker grows wealthy, for industry pays; his bank
r 11 is healthy, and happy his days. And then in his motor he scorches the
road, and some other voter, oppressed by his load, is crying, "By thunder,
the rich are too brash! They're flaunting their plunder, their ill-gotten cash.
Seme day the poor toilers will rise as one man, and to the despoilers will fasten
the can'" The man thus complaining some day may be rich; then he, too, dis
daining the man in the ditch, will speed up his motor and go like a gust; there's
always a voter to stand in the dust! '

NUBBINS'' By Cobb
Newsy Political Comment Contributed Exclusively to The El Paso Herald
By ZACH LAMAR COBB.
NO ONE can read today's Herald without becoming enthused over EI Paso's
present state and future prospects. The showing The Herald is able to
make today, of a year's progress in city building and development, would
be striking any time; but considering that we are about to enter the fifth year
of revolution in Mexico, that there has been a. great political upheaval, that
more than half the world is in a state of war, and that national finances are
seriously disturbed, the manner irl which EI Paso has risen above all elements of
possible discouragement and has driven steadily and mightily ahead along every
line, is fit cause for congratulation. It is also incentive enough to redoubled
eifort; and especially to forceful work in the interest of the chamber of commerce
Budget fund, already exceeding $40,000 on the way to the $50,000 goal.
Today's record is one of notable progress. It is safe to say that there is not
a city cf 100,000 population in the United States showing so great an advance
along all lines during 1914 as El Paso has shown. El Paso is "big" out of all
proportion to her size. Her 60,000 population does not indicate in advance what
to expect, so that the visitor is always surprised and delighted with his first
impressions of the city. EI Paso is so well built, so well paved, so well lighted,
sr well provided with modem hotels, banks, schools, churches, public utilities, parks,
first class business establishments, and great industries, that the city looks like one
of twice the population, and an exceptionally fine city at that.
All through today's Herald sounds the note of optimism of unquenchable
faith in the city's future. This is the spirit that makes men, makes cities, makes
great nations. The onward drive Is the only policy worth fighting for. As old
Marcus Whitman said, during his great trek to Oregon with the pioneers through
whose glorious efforts the great northwest was saved to the United States:
"Nothing is good for us that does not find us at each day's close a little
farther on."
That is the spirit of El Paso "a. little further on at each day's dose." This
c ty hao never had a sensational growth; it has never had a boom; and that is
one reason why it has never had a setback. El Paso has never had a period of
depression or recession. El Paso has never stopped buildine. never stonied crow
ing n population and wealth, never ceased adding to her industries, never held up
pubLc improvement work. The city drives on, and all its people beenfit in
proportion. There are drones among them, but they must needs gain too through
the efforts of the workers. AH the time more and more individuals engage
actively in the work of building the city. There are fewer shirkers today in
proportion to the whole population than ever before in the city's history.
The impression that must be made on outside readers and El Pasoans alike
by today's paper must be convincing as to El Paso's stability, her solid foundation
in the necessities of things, her firm reliance upon natural conditions that art!
all in the city's favor and impossible of removal or impairment.
El Paso's destiny is as sure as that of the United States itself. Nothing can
hold El Paso back except the indifference or inactivity o her own citizens and
that is unthinkable.
Reaa today's Herald, and then wrap it, put 4c in stamps on the wrapper, and
-si k an ay to a friend. It will help El Paso grow, and help build up your own
fortunes.
t TJCK has turned against CoL Roosevelt in the New York state camnaitm
I Over the objection of many in the Progressive party, the colonel almost
put over his conception of having both the Progressive and Republican
parties nominate Hinman for governor.
The success of this plan would have been a master political stroke. It would
have made Teddy the whole cheese in both parties. Talk about bosses! The colonel
would have been two bcsses in one.
But, like other political schemes sometimes do it fell through. The Pro
gressives kicked, and the Republicans bucked.
Hinman was pushed to the ropes, and not having the artfulness of a Roose
velt, he has gone down and out By agreeing to be bound by the Republican
primaries, he Ipst the Progressives. By losing the Progressives, he lost the only
reason for the Republicans to nominate him.
It shows how hard it is to do things by proxy. Teddy can't put Rooseveltian
stunts over through others.
Now the colonel has had to publicly abandon his scheme for fusion and agree
to a third straight ticket. It is up to the New York Democrats, therefore, to
choose the governor. Zach Lamar Cobb.

Music In the Schools
T'S GREAT WORK that is being done in the El Paso public schools in the
music department, to encourage the children to enjoy good music Very little
that is trivial or unfit is inflicted on the children nowadays in their songs
and exercises. Most of the songs learned in school are arranged from music of the
b:tter sort, instrumental, operatic, or vocal. In thet grades above the primary,
harmonies are taught and the chilfren are not allowed to get into the habit of
singing always in unison.
But it is not alone in giving the children good music to learn, and in keeping
bad music away from them, that worthy service is being performed in this de
partment of the pnbKc schools. One of the most interesting and most valuable
innovations, is the performance of selections from grand operas, with the children
singing the choruses and simpler melodies, and the instructors and volunteer
singers taking the solos, duets, and other more difficult parts.
Not only does this plan give the children an early and lasting familiarity
with the best in music, but it greatly multiplies their pleasure at the moment.
For when the bands play operatic and other music commonly called "classical"
(a word often translated "dull" by people who have not found out how to dis
criminate) the children in the parks will often be heard to exclaim, "0 that's
pretty," "We learned that in school," "That piece has words to it and we learned
them last year," "Don't you remember, the fifth grades sang it at commencement?"
It is one way to make music really a part of life, and not merely a deKrium
or a bad habit.
To read the war news more intelligently, imagine the theater of war trans
ferred to the United States; imagine Germany in the place of Texas; the Russian
frontier where Louisiana and Arkansas are; the French-Belgian-German frontier
where New Mexico abuts on Texas; the coast of the North sea at the Colorads
river in northwest Arizona. The distances are not far wrong.
o
The War Situation
GERMANY'S wonderful advance into allied territory is the day's big story in
the war situation. Germany has two rules in grand strategy of war:
Flank the enemy and drive forward at whatever cost: smash him or die
in the attempt.
The allies are on the defensive, and already they have lost command of
two great lines of defences against the Germans. ' .
Germany depends on dash; Russia on volume of attacking force.
France is fighting for life. Great Britain is rushing more troops into the
war zone, and having committed herself to the fight for France and Belgium, she
will have to pour men in without limit, even if it means millions of humans, and
drains the very life blood of the empire.

The situation can hardly be under

At the last June meeting or tne Cen

form, were presented for three dde-
.. ,m the TvDOgraphical union
The name of Henry M. Walker appeared
on these credentials, as one of the three.
These credentials were referred to the
credential committee of which Mr. Leo
was a member, and this committee re
ported unfavorably In the case of Mr.
Walker, giving similar reasons for
their act to those given by Mr. Lee In
his communication io juu. in spue,
however, or this adverse report the
Central Labor union did vote to accept
Mr. Walker as a delegate and he was
duly seated with the other delegates
from the Typographical union and he
retained his seat without question un

Sec 19. of the general laws govern

manner In which a member may be

words:

There Is no law In existence any
where providing for the expulsion of a i
member in any other manner. There- .
fore Mr. Lees act in ruling (without i
even being questioned on the subject) .
that Mr. Walker is not a legal member
of the Central Labor union Is abso
lutely Illegal. Nor can he legally act
upon the assumption that Mr. Manning
was not the legal president for the nine I
months that he occupied the chair until
he has obtained such a decision from
the proper authorities. There is no law
In existence giving Mr. Lee the author
ity to make such a decision. '
It Mr. Lee had faith that his conten

impartial trial of Mr Walker, whv di.l '
he not proceed in s proper manner as '
described In Sec. 29? '
One word In conclusion. A labor
paper is absolutely necessary for the
welfare of the union labor movement in
El Paso. We have such a paper that
has been In existence for many yars
and we are going to keep it In spite of
all that the "ring" politicians and street
car magnates can do.

furnishing inspiration to poets and
dinners to wolves, tigers, panthers and
various other animals which are not
vegetarians.
The deer Is very delicately made.
with Chippendale legs, large expres
sive ears and deep, liquid, soulful eyes.
It has a beautiful mottled coat and It
spends most of its lime trying to keep
this coat for itself. This ! not be
cause the deer has a selfish disposition,
but because it is a very serious matter
to have its coat removed. It Is always
done Just subsequent to the death of
the deer itself.
The deer lives In the forests and
plains as far from man as possible and
spends its time leaping nimbly from
hither to yon. The deer's legs are
made of coll springs and It can remove
itself from a given portion of the
landscape with great rapidity. Be
tween removals It spends Its time eat
ing grass and herbs and producing
fawns or Infant deer which are inno
cent little creatures composed mostly
of ears.
Like most beautiful creatures the
deer leads an unhappy life and comes
to a sad end. This is because it Is too
well beloved. Its flesh Is very pop
ular. Its hide Is eagerly sought for
by the Indians who make shoes and
clothes out of it. And It Is greatly
esteemed by sportsment as a mark.
There is no more popular pastime than
that of going out Into the woods and
hitting a deer with a rifle bullet.
Thousands of men go Into the woods
each fall to shoot deer. Owing to the
growing scarcity of the deer, the hunt
ers have reentry taken to shooting each
