STRICKLER President W. T. McCREIGHT Business Manager Tlhtat Water Business After nearly a year f imitation on the n"'"t '" ' the city'B water supply, both in the oily council mid 'iiaR a (,.t,.n,,nt to graft and rrlnilnal money Krnhbinjr, of It, the council and the question seem to tc n,),,ul i n,lefly. tliu plan propom-H to place ntinually In the Hull of OOOOOCOOC)CKX0(COOCkOCOKC Emtio Servleh, a wealthy resident of Hlher Lake, New York, offers to Rive $200,000 for a Hall of Shame to lie erected and maintained for a century and to lit used where each began. The water company asked for un extension (if their existing franchise, Rivinir it a thirty-five-jcar lease ol life. The ground of application was stale., by tho company and argued by I'u organ, that the present facilities of the company are Inadequate for production of a sufficient water supply to meet the need of this city, and that unless granted the extension of the franchise the company could not enlarge Its facilities to meet the existing demand. The extension of the franchise was objected to on the grounds that the water rates which the franchise Shame the statues and names of five men, living or dead, who have been the gteateBi g-afiefs and the most active In Injuring the masses of their fellow men. Tho statue of no woman Is to be thus placed, as Mr. Scrvlch believes that no woman is a gruffer or a money tyrant, save as sl'.o Is the tool of some designing man. The Idea Is a good one. If a Hall of Fame, wiiy not u Mall f Shame? For instauce, the rase of Jhe 1'niud States senator elected by the people, trusted, honored, hut who basely betrays the people's cause, who does the bidding l greedy corporations, whoso retainer he taKes. who ac cepts a large sum of money under the, specious head f counsel," but, who earns It by secret service set up this permits the company to charge are excessively burden- n,(in- maj,,, n the Hall of Shame where the slow mov- Konie and out of proportion to the rates charged In sim ilar places. This was met by the company's assertion that with its present plant and methods water could not Iks produced Wid distributed, with reasonable profit, nt lower rates. This stage of the discussion brought up the question whether more modern methods could not supply an abundaneee of water and at greatly lessened cost to the consumer. The fact was brought out that water can be developed In this city and distributed to consumers in a profit to a water company for not to exceed 6 cents per 1,000 gallons. Then inniu the question. If tnls couid bo done and yet the present water company could not. or would not do it, should not the city put in its own wnter plant, and thus save to itself and to Its citizens the burdensome excess In rates which the present company was levying. This, of course, depended on wnat tho Installation of such a plant would cost. Here, again. It was established that a modern system like that recently put In at. Makers field, Cal. a town similar In size and location to Albu querque could be put in here, at a cost not to exceed $100,000. It was apparent that the water company asked for the extension of its franchise so long a time before that franchise should expire, and asked that the extension should be for so many years, was because it considered itself to be-better entrenched at the present time than it will be In any time in the future; and the events fol lowing the request for franchise extensiou, havo .fully Justified the supposition alike upon the part of the peo ple and of the company. The city council's action In this matter, Wednesday evening, seems to have been quite fragmentary and in adequate. The proposal to submit to the people the proposition to issue lionds for the purpose of buying the present water plant, without stating the amount ot bonds is certainly peculiar, while the absence of alter natives is far from reaching the needs of the case and the demands of the people. The council must not forget thai this whole ques tion baa arisen from the pressing and crying need of u.i city for abundant water at much, less cost than jiow paid. Had the company supplied these de mands, or even promised to supply them, there would now be no contest on the subject. But tha company ban stoutly maintained that they could not meet either demand. If this be true, then tho city does not want to burden itself with a plant which will com pel I Its charges to be as great as those complained of. If an other system will accomplish the desired results! then the poole want another system. If city ownership will give greatly reduced rates to the people, then the people want city ownership. But of this much the council may assure itself nothing can be done in the water sup ply question, whether it bo extension of the present franchise, a new system and plant, or city ownership of the present plant, without submitting., tbe question, to the people, and. only that will be, adopu-d which guaran tees much lower rates than at present. lug finger of scorn may point at It. Write underneath the statue an inscription like this: "This man was made a servant of the people. He was recreant to his sacred duty and won his place in this Hull' of Shame by staining the palm of his hand with bribes and by treason to the republic." Or, suppose the president of a great life Insurance company has betrayed a public trust. He has used tue money entrusted to his care for speculative purposes. Or he lias taken thrice the salary he has earned. Or he has promoted his family or relative's at the expense of the policy holders. Or he has created a trust company thai he and his gang of robbers may profit on the side. Set up the Image of this man in tho Hall of Shame, and under the brazen object lesson write these words: "Here is the figure of a man who stole the money of widows and orphans. He loved himself belter than Just ice or mercy. He deserves and has found his place and has won distinction because he was traitor to those who trusted him." What an effect these graven images, each occupying his special niche of infamy, would work upon the greedy grabbers of other people's money: Most of them would falter at the prospect of spending even one year as un object lesson for the impetus of public scorn. Perhaps Scrvich's Hall of Shame will never bu built. It matters not so much, because the time Is coming and now is when those who steal from their fellow men, whatever may be the cover of law, are building their special halls of shame and placing themselves therein, pilloried in the public esteem.

JONES, KILLED AT GALLUP, arrested; (Continued from page one.) 0000XKXXXXXKXXXX0XC0XXC0i Merry Ctaristsmas at Sfta Bide-a-Wee Home From Bryan's Commoner. 00XX0XXXXXKXX0XXXKXXXXXXW An Easy JLifeJ r 1 The Milwaukee Sentinel presents a very pleasing picture of a Texas Industry, which doubtless could be made profitable in New Mexico. Tho Sentinel, says: The pecan raising Industry is rapidly , growing in Texas and Louisiana aud many pecan farmers aro mak ing princely annual Incomes while Hitting around and doing nothing, said Harry R. Saner, of Kittle Hock, Ark., at the St. Charles. The trees yield first wnen they are even years old. A man with some capital can purchase land at a small price, set . out pecau trees and wait. The most work on the ordchard will have to be done while the -trees are young, as after they have grown large enough to bear nuts they require almost no atten tion. The principal labor .done about a Vo-yoai -old pecan ordchard is to watch it hi that, the negroes do not si cal all the nuts. It lias finally become unnecessary In har vest one's own nutB. Companies hiive been formed which send men through the country estimating the yield of orchards and making a price for Hie nuts on the trees. They thou send men out to gather Hie nuts aud superintend their shipment to all parts or the country. To start a pecan orchard one must have from J.I.imm to $20,000, which he can afford to tie up for six or seven years. After that he can live well from his animal .yield of nuts. i Equal Suffrage The thirty-eighth annual convention of the National American Woman Suffrage association will be held iu Baltimore, Md., February , 7th to the 1.1th inclusive, at Lyric theater. The Citizen has beeU cordially invited 10 attend, but fears that previous engagements will pre vent. The call says: At no time in its history lias this orgauizat ion .md so much reason to feel confident of the future. Having passed through the usual stages of abuse and ridicule, there was a time when the enemies of equal suffrage tried to smother the dea with silent contempt. This period has gone also. Seeing the Inroads that are be ing made in the ranks of conservatism our opponents have been aroused to renewed zeal. In their efforts to force the nautilus of progress back into the outgrown chambers of the past." Forcing '(the nautilus of progress back Into the out grown chambers of the past," is good, very good; ,ut then the orthoccraiite would have done equally as well. According to the Springfield, Mass., Republican, the founding of a rural colony of Russian .lews not far front Baltimore is a hopeful sign. These Jews had lived in the city, earning their bread iu sweatshops, until they worked out their scheme to secure land. Thirty families of them organized and by contributing each $1 a week they finally accumulated $2,. Ion. With this money alxiut two years ago they secured 2."0 acres of farm land In Howard county, worth $14,500, leaving upon the property uiuiiKuee vi li.eim. lyteu lamiiy was given Detweeu eight and nine acres upou which to make a home. The women continued to do tallorlug for city linns, iit under more wholesome conditions of rural life. The men pro eeeded to cultivate the land to provide food for the f un Hies, with periiaps some surplus for the market. In winter tho men, too, have pursued their old city occu pation of tailoring. In view of the ingrained tendency of tho Jews to live iu cities and avoid agricultural lift this Marylaud experiment Is highly Interesting. Charters taken out in eastern stales during I'.hiS represent a total capitalization of $2.1 j3,:;::i.Ml. During December the big companies incorporated totalled $118, SM)9,100, bringing the total for the year to $1 .t)74.10.r.,21 1 compared with $1,063,242,200 last year aud $l,572,2'H.u. In 1903. Companies having an authorize! capitalization of $100,000 and less than $l,0o0,000 rcprebcuted a total for the year of $479,22:,fi00. it was a sarcastic gentleman who remarked that "a philanthropist is one who would rather give two shirt less men collars than to give one shirtless man a shirt," but every now and then one comes ucross a bit of news or undergoes an experience that Impels one to believe that, the sarcastic gentleman was not so very far wrong. The New York World of Decern her 26 contains a very interesting, if somewhat disgusting, account of the Christmas celebration given In the Blde-a-Weo home at No. 145 West Thirty-eighth street. . It waB stated that the' celebration started very early in the morulug," al though 1 he little guests were "allowed to sleep an hour longer thun usual," and that when they did finally wake un they fouud that "Santa Ciaus had been busy." Then the account tells of the good things given to each little Inmate, of the pretty ribbons and collars and dainty vlaiids ami little Christmas presents Well calculated to make the wee folks happy. Tins World winds up Its interesetlng account with the following: 'In the afternoon a number of society womeu who maintain the home dropped in to extend greetings to their charges. Among them was Mrs. Harry II. Kibbe, president of tho society. She said it was as merry a Christmas gathering as she had ever seen." But before the readers of The Commoner become tiNi enthusiastic over the work of the socfety women who maintain this "Bide-u-Wee," let them understand that all this entertainment, all this Christmas cheer, ull these pretty and good things were not given to homeless chil dren. No, indeed! They were given to cats and dogs. The dogs were given "Juicy bones and side dishes of delicious biscuits," says the World. And a ew blocks away little children were .suffering the pangs of hunger and wondering if, after all, Santa Claus was a myth and Christmas a delusion and a snare! "The cats had an unlimited serving of milk that wasn't skimmed and the most delicious catnln imaginable." says tho World. And while these society women looked on and clapped their gloved hands at the 'merry Christmas gathering," scores of little babies were starving for the luck of a few sups of that unskimmed milk that was being fed to the cats In the "Bide-a-Wee Home!" "The cats were delighted to find brilliant ribbons in their stockings," says the World. But how much more would a lot of unfortunate children been delighted had they fouud upou rising that they had even a pair of stockings without the "brilliant ribbons?" And while in hundreds, yes, thousands, of teuement house j in New York city women and children were sufferl'ig for the necessities of life, scores of babies dying i,t hunger, and misery and woe stalking rampant, ;a society woman watches a lot of cats aud dogs feeding on what would be a banquet to btarving mortals and remarks: "1:. is as merry a Christmas gathering as I have ever seen!" The philanthropy that would give feasts to cats and dogs and neglect the little children of the strees is fear fully misdirected. And there must be something wrong with ihe minds and hearts of women who can call feast ing dogs and cats "the merriest Christmas" while there are thousands of God's children actually starving within sight ami sound of the "Bide-a-Wee Home." OXCXXXXXX)XXXX0XXXXX)XXX5 SQST&e Intricacies of 15fta Water QtmestioEu From Forestry and Irrigation. XCOvXXXXXXXXXXXOCOCC0X0 lis an ill Hood that does no one good in Southern California. The keenness with which the desert dweller goon after water was never better illustrated than in recent case before one of the departments. it Is the case of a number of settlers filing iion the waters of a slough, which was formed hy the recent dis astrous floods on the Colorado river, and then seeking to enjoin a canal company from Its endeavor to repair the damages which the high water had caused to its (anal system. The Colorado river, which burst Its banks last summer, bus been spilling water over the sunken desert known as Inieprial valley, and has created a great inland sea, that threatens to overwhelm several thousand homes, destroying millions of dollars of prop erty. Along one of its Hood channels It passes through!! an old slough, and certain settlers not unaware of t hf source of l he water, but mindful of its great tho debert, riled upon the slough, attaching the themselves, in porpeuity, in accordance with the las of the state of California, u prior right to the use Id these waters. Meanwhile the canal company has been strenuously engaged in an effort to retain the boisterous river whhiu its proper banks. Every round thus far has linen I" favor of the river. Remarking these efforts the set tlers who claim the slough have appealed to I'nce Sam to restrain tho company, claiming that their present efforts threaten the supply m water in the slough. dirt and Johnson. A peculiar thing! about Jones' case was that, he was I perfectly rational many hours after! the assault. He first became Insane' while bdng shaved. He saw all kinds of visions, anion? them many automo biles. The barber who cut his hair for the last, time, described the wounds on the top of the ' head as three gasher, like those which would be made with the heavy end of a large six-shooter, In the hands of a desper ate assailant. Dr. Stofer. in describing the wounds, said that they were two in number, one three Inches from one eye, ten stitches In lengKi. and another one close to the other eye. The skin was purple. Dr. Stofer also stated that these wounds could not have been made with the fist, and from these wounds erysipelas developed, which In turn developed into meningitis, and then death followed. "Both eyes were a complete mass of pus," said Dr. Stofer, "and he suf fered great pain, at which times he would cry out: 'My God! I meant no harm. Why did they punish me this way!' " All three doctors agreed as to the Indirect cause of Jones' death, and Jafter death a rather startling discov ery was made. Although Jones was a muscular man of six feet three Inches, his skull bone was found to be a mere shell at the temples, and beneath this skull were found clots of blood. Jones was sick a week, gradually growing worse from the effects of the assault ami wniskeyv which lie tm blbed of quite freely. All during this time, he rambled In lioth mind and body. Much troubles was had in keep ing him in his room. Twenty-four hours previous to his death, he es caped from his room by creeping through a window, and falling four teen feet to the frozen street, break ing a leg, dislocating a hip, and knock Ing out. the one remaining eye. This neck-lent probably hurried on his death, which came at the end as a great relief. Relative Settle Funeral Expenses. The remains of Walter Jones were laid at rest In Hillside cemetery on Wednesday,' ' the funeral occurring from the undertaking parlors of W. F. Kuckenbecker. About thirty la dles of (Jallnp gathered around the bier and sang, while Rev. Huggett, the Methodist minister, asked the soul's forglverniess-. Relatives of the deceased living at Sutherland, Va., telegraphed for' particulars, and re quested that the bill for expenses b forwarded to tliejn. Public Sentiment. The killing of Walter Jones was a very unfortunate affair and Is to be regretted.' 'The people of Gallup sym pathize with Mr. and Mrs. Page, but sllll they (lemand justice, and many are inclined to believe that Mr. Page was In the wrong that he had not the moral right to assault Jones, though the latter had committed an Insult to his home, and esjiecially when he knew the stupid condition of Jones from strong drink. While many of Mr. Page's friends feel that i Is only fair that, the whetis of justice revolve in his case as they would in the case of a man of le.i prominence and wealth, his many en emies in McKinley county demand Justice, while in some of the outlying districts there is a strong feeling against him. Hon. Thomas J. Leaden, formely a member of the New Mexico legisla ture from Santa Fe county, who ar rived from Fort Defiance this evening, stated that the employes of the Indian agency were thoroughly aroused over tho killing and the slowness of Sher iff Coddlngton In placing Mr. Page in custody, and that if the case was not properly handled by the territorial au thorities, the government would be petition! d to make an Investigation. However, this is not likely to be nec essary, as Mr. Page has made no ef fort to defy the law," and the case will most likely pursue its natural course.
