ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN MONDAY, MARCH 5, 1906. THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN Published Dally and Weekly By The Citizen Publishing Company w, 8. STRICKLER President W. T. MoCREIGHT Business Manssrer Co Victoria Cross You nilfiht draw your boy to your Unco anil tell him the story of the Victoria Cross, for llic Fi-mi-centcnnial of the founding of this decoration, which nieniia more than any other decoration the world hits known, litis just passed. You mlht tell him that the cross haR no in trinsic value. It Is worth in money about four cents. Ilut it represents the highest type of loyalty, the per sonal bravery that forgets self absolutely and that pays no heed to-danger in the effort to save. Five hundred and twenty-eight crosses have been awerded In the past fifty years. They have not been lightly bestowed. Every man who wears one was worthy and had been tried as by fire. It would require volumes to relate the tales of heroism and daring covered by those 5-N bits of metal. Why, one man won his cross, during the Indian mu tiny, by fighting with his bare fists after his sword had leen broken, and he fought so fiercely and well that ho delayed the enemy until English reinforcements came up and saved the day. 'Hobs," Ixird Roberts, the little sol dier who knew no fear, is entitled to wear two Victoria crosses. He won his own over and over ngaln when he was a lieutenant, und his son, who received his death wound while trying to save the guns at Colenso, was nlso Riven a cross; and the good Queen Victoria, in her ap preciation of this heroism that follows blood from father to eon, ordered that Ixird Roberts should wear his own cross on his left breast and his son's on his right breast. Tell your boy about these things. They are not stories of war alone. They are not arguments for the shedding of blood, but tales of manhood, the highest type :the kind that can look death In the eyes and say: "I'll do my full duty as a man." Tell the lad that there are crosses to be worn In every day living. In the strug gles which must be faced by every one, and that nevei was there need of a higher type of men than now. A queen may never pin a medal to your lad's breast, but the world admires strength, courage, loyalty, whether they are shown on field pt battle or in the humblest walk of life. It Is always worth while to try Is only to satisfy the voice Inside. Tell your boy about that, also. The would-be sensation about the cruel treatment ot A patient at the New Mexico Insane asylum, has proven Hself to be false and malicious, as every Intelligent per son could well believe that it would, and as every one having any familiarity with the management of the asy lum at Las Vegas very well knew that it must. This writer from the very opening of the asylum up to two years ago, was a frequent visitor to the institution, din ing there often, Intimately acquainted with the members of the management, and well posted In the plans, pur poses and methods adopted and pursued; and no crazy or disgruntled employe, smarting under discharge, could make him for a moment believe that cruelty In the in stitution could be possible, with Dr. W. R. Tipton as medical director and George W. Ward as steward. A suggestion for Albuquerque: In Chattanooga, Tenn., the efforts of members of the American Civic As sociation have been quite suecesful anil the City Heauti ful Idea lias taken hold upon the minds of the Junior leaguers of the Highland Park Methodist church. The church has a splendid property consisting of about three lots, a pretty little frame church, and a commodious two story parsonage. At present the largest part of the prop erty is In lawn, where a new church will be built as soon as the conditions Justify it. The parsonage was finished only about a year ago. und it has not been possible tip to this time to do much In the way of beautifying the grounds. A short time ago the Junior Leaguers took up the subjt'cl and resolved to start a project to beautify the yard. Farmington Hustler: Judge Goddard of the Colorado supreme court, while drunk at a banquet, the other evening, took the occasion to severely condemn an at torney who was also preser.t, who had been retained by the officers of the .Western Federation of Miners. Judge Goddard expressed his contempt for an attorney who would accept fees from such a source. There is a lot of us people with the old-fashioned idea that an attorney who accepts fees from any client and performs service in return for it is immeasurably superior from un ethical standpoint to a judge who accepts a salary from the tax payers of a state and then renders his decisions accord ing to the dictates of a few corporations. A young man. the other day. furew himself into the Chicago river. When he was pulled out, he gave as an exceuse that he was driven to suicide because: "I could not see iuy way through life." Yet this man had $20 In his pocket, was strong and healthy, and had no one de pendent upon him. It is not given to mortals to see the nd from the beginning. Not one of us has a perfect mop of the expedition, In which he is engaging. The only thing the wise man knows is this the forces that are for him are greater than those that be against him; and he goes on bravely, by faith instead of sight. Faith does not see the way, but it holds the way. unseeing and noperui, 1 H V Thomas W. 1-awKon predicts that within a year John I). Rockefeller and H. II, Rogers and other high finan ciers, if living, will be wearing slripes In state's prison. This is not more startling than the assertions lawson made concerning the inside management of the life in surance companies, which assertions have been con firmed by Investigation. Lawson claims the report of the Armstrong Insurance committee whitewashed the real criminals and that the evils of "the system" were not exposed. "Tho committee was steered away from the Idg thieves,'' says Lawson. "Where the McCalls and the McCurdy's got tens of thousands, the men' higher up' got millions." Sororio Chieftain: It is soon to be known whether it is possible to secure an artesian flow of water near Socorro or not. Max Kirchmau and his Socorro asso ciates in tho fxeeution of. the Bohemian colonization pro ject have been out oil the mesa between the smelter anil Socorro mountain, and selected a spot where boring for artesian water will shortly l-gin. As it has already heen established that an abundance of water can be had in the valley by pumping from the river's underflow an artesian well up on the mesa is all that Is now lack ing to establish Socorro on a more Mihstantial and en during basis of prosperity than was hers even In her palmiest days. The future looks liright for Socorro.

Forest Service. XXXXXXXXXXX)X)0000X)00000OOi From several aspects a striking Interest attaches to the recent sale by the government ot about 50,0iii,oni) feet of timber on the Montana division of the Yellow stone horest Reserve to a contracting company which will convert most of the timber into railroad ties. Tills Is one of the largest sales ever made of gov- jernment timber; the price is advantageous; and n large percentage of the cut will be of a Frneies which a few years ago was without market value, namely, lodgepole plne. Further, it may be said with assurance that had not the preservative treatment of ties been shown to be both practical and economical, such a sale could not now have been made for 60 per cent of the cut, or approxi mately l.ooo.noo ties, Is to be treated with preservatives by a process which experiment and trial have placed on a sound business basis. The purchasers of the timber have contracted to sup ply the Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy and Northern Pa cific railway companies with ties for a period covering three years. The timber for which they applied to the government consists of lodgepole pine, red fir, and spruce. A large proportion of the stand Is lodgepole pine, which grows very densely. Consequently after all the specified timber has been i amoved, a plentiful stand of young trees will be left, which In a few years will again form a forest of merchantable dimensions. The government will receive a stunipage price ot $2.50 per thousand feet for the red fir and $2.00 per thousand feet for the spruce and pine. The story of the entrance of lodgepole pine into the timlier market Is an Interesting chapter In the history of the use of forest products. Five years ago this tree was classed among the nearly worthless, inferior timbers growing In the northwestern states. It had never come Into extensive us-?. Its liability to attack by fungus and lightlies-, nd the large percentage of sapwood in its struct!!.' were disadvantages which seemed to handicap It permanently. Yet tho possibility and the need of find ing substitutes for scarcer woods had already led to the closer study of a number of unexploltej species, and de vices were being sought by which artificial treatment might be made to take the place of natural adaptability to a specific service. Among these devices were improvements in season ing methods and the use of preservatives, it was found that preservative treatment; which greatly prolonged the life of certain timbers, depends largely for Us success upon the penetrability of the wood, which permits the preservative to enter the wood substance easily. The loblolly pine was seen to be exceedingly well adapted for preservative treatment, and also lodgepole pine, In which softness is combined with a high degree of per meability. In 1002 the seasoning and preserving ot lodgepole pine was thoroughly taken up by the Forest Service, in co-operation with the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad ami with the present purchasers of re serve timber in Montana. The results established Its sei vicenbility and thus opened a new field for the sup ply of ties, upon which the railroads are drawing so heavily. 00X)COOOOOX)OOCOX500X)X00X0 SEbqws Prosperity 00XXXXXX000X3'0OCOX)C0X)X)09 Steel Business.

There were two chair cars on the train, and I was In the front one, or the car nearest tho inramn. tive. 1 was awakened from my sleep very suddenly by be.-ng rotiehy tolt- cd about In my seat. The train, a sec ond afterwards, stopped with a thud, giving evrybody a severe shaking up. n only took: a second for me to con- elude we had been wrecked. The front end of the car f was on hau reacned an angle which proved this very conclusively. I got out of the car with little difficulty. The engine was still on the track. Bv a aueer freak of luck it did not leave the rails. Tho tender did, however, and uiy a wreck nesuie the track. The express car lay in the ditch, in a po sition which indicated that It might topple over at any minute. The smo ker was also in the ditch, laying flat on its side. The front end of Uie first chair car left the rails and rest ed in the ditch, but the remainder of the train kept to the rails. The only persons Injured were those In the smoker and the express messenger. The messenger w as hurled against the side of his car as It toppled into the ditch und was seriously hurt. In the smoker were several natives. Tbev, too, were hurled about as the car fell inio the ditch. All were painfully hurt, especial'- two, v.ho it Is tuought are tatally hurt. The cause of the wreck Is attributed to the tender ol the engine suddenly becoming de railed, spreading the rails sufficiently to allow the cars behind to leave the track.
