HOMESEEKERS' EDITION The Homeseekers' edition of The Republican went like hot cakes all day yesterday even though it got a late start, owing to the extra work of so large an issue. As will be seen by refer ence to another column in this issue, the paper was highly ap preciated by all who have had time to read it and digest the information contained in its many pages. One does not even have to read it but merely glance over its captions to arrive at a fair conclusion .concerning its value to this valley as a public ity number. . The Republican will feel amply repaid for its effort if every sub scriber will be patriotic enough to mail his copy to a friend in the east. The postage is only two cents and. any or every pa per mailed may be the means of bringing some new settler to the valley. v The paper is on sale at the leading news stands and a limited supply is still on hand at The Republican office. Those who can afford to send copies to friends will be doing a public spirited thing that will redound to the benefit of the entire com munity, but each subscriber is urged to at least send his copy after it has been read at home. Buried talents do not grow and a copy of the Homeseekers' edi tion of The Republican, will do no good if hid in the cellar. The board of trade has been out of literature for months, ex- j cept for the two small bulletins issued and a little printed mat ter furnished free, while it is re ceiving inquiries by the thou sand from the reclamation serv ice offices in Washington and the colonization departments, of the railroads. If the people will spend just a few cents each they can, better than in any other way, make up for lost time. currency reform without naming any particular bill; a law supplementing the present liquor laws to provide for local option with the county as a unit: more general primary election laws; an inheritance tax law; tfce en dorsement of President Roosevelt; waterways improvement: an economic administration of national affairs, es pecially In the army and navy, and prohibiting corporations from contrib uting to campaign funds. o : , A VICTORY FOR GANS.

San Diego, April 1. With her after fighting tops blackened by dense coal smoke and fast steaming, and with her twin-starred flag of blue floating from the main truck, the 16-000-ton battle ship Connecticut, which pointed the way of the Atlantic fleet from Hamp ton Roads through the Straits of Me gellan on to Magdalena Bay, arrived off (,'oronado beach today, bringing Rear Admiral Robley D.

That is said to be where they originated the brilliant color that has for so many years made glad the heart of the Indian brave. It is easy to make dye out of the common dyestuffs that are sold in every country store today and the ordinary lazy Indian has discovered this fact. To avoid the work and the worry of manufacturing their own colors these drones in the hive of the red skins fly their customs and try to ruin the well made reputation of the Xavajo blanket for excel lence and quality. That Is another reason why it Is absolfltely necessary- for a man who pretends to deal In Navajo blankets to know whereof every detail of the work originates. It takes many years of experience to tell first hand and without failure whether the dye in a blanket is genuine or whether it ia likely t fade because it is not genuine. It is by hard knocks that I have learned this, and when buying a blanket from the Big Curio you get the benefit of all this experience. R. L. B3LKE U. S.
