PAGE POUR. FRIDAY. JULY 0, 1P06. i '. i 1 1 THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN Published Dally and Weekly. By The Citizen Publishing Company W. ft. 8TRICKLER, President. W. T. McCREIGHT, Business Manager. Despots Survive The Ingratitude of republics, which has passed Into proverb. Is certainly not comparable to the Ingratitude of despots. Russia Illustrates this fact The creature of one' man's will, that country has executed or dis graced the leader who did nobly but could not succeed in the war with Japan. The little coterie of grand dukeg, who brought on tie war to keep themselves In power, stayed safe at the home end of the conflict. They preferred keeping eioue to the Little Father's ear and purse, to risking their lives on the firing line, says the Duluth Tribune. They were the authors of the war and they were responsible for its being such a disgraceful failure, through their intrigues, incompetence and peculations. "What the army ond navy should have had to fit them for winning victories, they stole. They interfered with the plans of campaigns, demoralized the spirit of loyal devotion from the man behind the gun to the adminis trative heads of departments. Instead of a onlted coun try, they created ten thousand miles of utter demoraliza tion, stretching from St. Petersburg to Vladivostok and Port Arthur. Yet the gram dukes are still In power, still reek in fatness and revel in deviltry. The men sent to do their fighting In a foredoomed cause, sent with inadequate preparation, with a disloyal home support, with Insuf ficient m"n and munitions, have been held responsible for tie failures and defeats, made inevitable by these name .grand dukes. It is the hope of all mankind that theseievll geniuses of a great nation may reap the re ward hey have over earned, even, if per force. It must take jhe form of the bomb. j Best Credit in History lids have been invited for $30,000,000 of 2 per cent Koverhment bonds to be used in the construction of the Panaa canal, which will be the first Installment of the moult of bonds authorized by congress for the great lsthnJan enterprise. By law the bonds can not be sold for less than par. As they command a premium, that provision has no practical bearing in the sale. No other country in the world can borrow money at 2 per c?nt, to Bay nothing of the premium, which it is believed, will reach, hi least 4 per cent. The 4 per cent bonds of Japan and Russia can be bought for less than par. though the interest is twice as large as that paid by this country. A nation, state or city that can borrow at 3 per cent is favorably situated. But the United States borrows at a much lower figure, with larger offerings than t can use. It is true that the bonds of the I'nited Statei have a special value to banks aa a basis for the issuejof bank notes, but as this is part of the financial system devised by the government the fact is all the more proor o'f good management in developing and main taining the national credit, which stands unequaled else where in fhe past or present. Supposing $200,000,000 to be necessary in building a lock canal at Panama, the United States can get the money at 2 per cent, or $4,000,000 a year. Any other naitioir- would have to pay at least 3 per cent, a differ ence of $2,000,nii0 a year. If the bonds ran fifty years the amount in favor of the United States for that term would be $100,000,000, a striking exhibit of the superior position of this country as a liorrower. Characteristic Conduct The Denver Republican of' yesterday contained iden tically the same telegram about Socorro, even including the Carlsbad cloudburst, which appeared yesterday in the morning paper of this city. There was this differ ence, however; the Republican telegram was published with 'an El raso date line, while the Journal forged the Socorro date line, to give a semblance of reality to a wild, foolish and slanderous fabrication. Neither is this a small offense. The El Paso cor respondents are notorious for the lurid lies they so offen send out, not only concerning the country anywhere in a radius of five to seven hundred mile's, but even about their own town. So far had this course, of, conduct been carried that the El Paso Chamber of Commerce called attention to it and severely reprimanded the correspond ents, while the general pubHc"came'to look upon any thing with an El Paso date line as merely a sensational canard. These two facts are well known. Hence, if the matter bad been published with the El Paso date line, which belonged to it, no one would think of paying any attention to It, placing It In the same category with the Imaginary occurrences which the EJ Paso correspond- , ents are paid for sending out and attributing to places in Mexico. But to forge upon the El Paso telegram a Soccro date line, was to give 'a semblance of truth to a very poor cock and bull story. Those who would re fuse all credence to an EJ Paso romance would think that there might be some truth. In the same story Jf it came from Socorro Itself. In this way the morning paper of this city gave the Gem City the greatest dam age In its power. A Great State In three more years about five hundred miles of railroads will be placed on the New Mexico assessment rolls and will pay taxes, says the New Mexican. . This trackage is now exempt from taxation under the "law allowing exemption for six years from taxation for all new railroads from the day of their completion. In five years New Mexico will tax about nve thousand miles of railroads at the very least at $10,000 per mile. Aa time advances this assessment will be duly increased. Anyone who cares to study the situation and consid er It calmly must come to the conclusion that within a decade, or at lea.st by the year 1920, New Mexico will be one of the richest and most prosperous states in the Union.' Iaily Optic. Tbe New .Mexican says that "the rainfall through out a great portion of New Mexico since the first of July has been abnormal and much greater than usual. That it came in good time and has been a great blessing is Hure. That this condition of affairs may not again occur for years to come is also sure. After all, New Mexico is an arid country and situated in an arid luit. Otfa Klonnl . deviations by nature can not be counlei upon to make this a rain lelt. just as one swallow tloeH not make a summer." 'Die rainfall in this section of New Mexico since the first of July has not been al. normal, though good anil very useful. Last year It was more abundant than it lias so far been this year, and came fully a month earlier. Year before last the rainfall was even more excessive, but it did nt reach its full force until about territorial fair time, when It washed out the rail roads to such an extent and through so long a lime as to make the fair virtually a failure. 000'"00000C Brief Story of the Recent Dreyfus Case The New York Times. 0XOC0000GC Stripped of the entangling yarn of tragedy and conA edy, of perjury, forgeries, and' murders, the true thread of the Dreyfus story Is not diflcult to trace. In the summer of 1894, when General Mercler was minister of war, a member of the French "Contre-Espionage" was caught near the German frontier and released by the minister's order. Mercier, never popular with the lib eral press, thereby brought down upon his head a heap of unjust, Insulting denunciations. His maligners could not know the true character of the man released. An opportunity was offered to Mercler to rehabilitate him self when a lrdereau, or list enumerating artilces that had been transmitted to a foreign power, was intercept ed and taken to him. The character of the contents showed that the writer was a treasonable member of the French general staff. If Mercler could detect the crim inal, there would be no more cries heard from the lib eral press that he was In the habit of freeine traitors. Mercler called to his aid one Du Paty de Clam and ordered him to find the author of the bordereau among he officers of the various bureaus. The handwriting of an Alsatian Jew, Captain Dreyfus, resembled that In the bordereau. Experts were of varied opinions. Dreyfus was arrested and a curious "acte d-accusatlon," or in dictment, was drawn up against him. In which various charges were made on less than hearsay. He was tried on the charge of having communicated to a foreign pow er obviously Germany the documents mentioned In the bordereau. From the very beginning the prisoner's counsel, Maltre Demange,. swept away all charges with the ex ception of that implicating Dreyfus as the writer of the bordereau. The court retired to deliberate on this point. A hurry call was sent for Mercler announcing that the prisoner was aliou-t to be acquitted. Mercier hurried to the Ecole Mllltalre and entered without ceremony the secret chamber of the court. He said he would read to the court a telegram which had been Intercepted while passing from the military attache of one embassy to that of another. This document, he added, whs In ci pher, but he would translnte. He read: "Decidedly this rascal Dreyfus has become, too exacting." The document was not In cipher, nor did it contain the name Dreyfus merely the letter D. The Judges, however, never ques tioned their general's word, nor did they resent being made his criminal partners by accepting the evidence which was Introduced without the accused's knowledge or the knowledge of his counsel. They found Dreyfus guilty and sentenced him to death a sentence Inter changed to imprisonment for life on Devil's island. A book might be written books have been written showing how the conviction by the court -martial had been illegal how this illegality was made public. The names, of George Plcquart and Entile Zola ami a host of others should always be mentioned in the story which tells of the three years' struggle to brills 'be Illegality to the attention of the supreme court, of appeal. This court was finally reached. During the winter of 1K9S-H9 it beard witnesses and finally gave its opinion thai Cap tain Dreyfus might, be sent before the Rennes court martial to be tried on th charge of having transmitted to a foreign power certain documents mentioned in a list which it (the supreme court of appeal) bad overwhelm ing evidence, had been written by another man. As the proceedings of this court had been dally published, there was no doubt as to who the other man was. He was the notorious Esterhazy, the real traitor. The supreme court, It will be seen, thus left the Rennes trUiunal an absurd ity to establish. At Rennes, however, the Judges utterly Ignored the opinion of the supreme court that of Itself would have been sufficient to have the sentence annulled had not the agitated state of the country prevented the supreme court from exercising its authority In this instance and proceeded to try Dreyfus on the old charge, with all the old paraphernalia, but with an additional witness, named Cernusky. who falsely swore that he had overheard men talking about Dreyfus' delinquencies. And1 the Rennes court-martial found the defendant guilty of treason, but "with extenuating circumstances." The news of this absurd sefitonce had scarcely reached Paris when Dreyfus' brother, Matthleu, was on his way to Rennes with the news that the government desired to pardon the convict. Dreyfus thought, of his sufferings at Devil's Island, of his long separation from his family, and accepted the offer. By this action, how ever, he incurred the enmity of some of his most ardent defenders, who had attempted to make his case a na tlonal political cause. But he was weary and would rest. Later he would claim his name. A large number of criminal and civil law suits arose from the case, and bo Interminable did they seem, so threatening to public safety, that It became necessary to pass a law granting general amnesty and prohibiting further litigation. Dreyfus himself, however, was not Included In this law. He could tranquilly await the time, therefore, when "new facts," unknown at the Rennes rial, might be discovered. That time has now come The new facts presented to the supreme court of appeal were as follows: 1. The "petit bleu" (city tube telegram) sent by Colonel Pannlzzardl to Colonel Von Schwarzkoppen about the transport of troops on the Eastern railway In the event of mobilization was not written in 1894. as wag believed when Dreyfus was tried at Rennes. but In the year following, when he was at Devil's Island. ' 2. At Rennes Dreyfus was thought to have com munlcated a note on the different artillery regiments to tne uerman government, as it was supposed to have dls appeared from the bureau where he was working. Now this very note has since been found in the war office, 3. The fact that the Initial "D" occurred In another "petit bleu" exchanged Ix tween the German and Italian military attaches was regarded as proof against Dreyfus It has since been ascertained that the original initial was scratched out and replaced by the letter "D." 4. It has also been found that several documents in favor of Dreyfus were not submitted to tbe officers who tried him at Rennes. :. hince a document has been discovered wnicn snows mat Dreyfus never made an avowal of guilt. 6. It is alleged that there Is evidence of one fals witness at the Rennes trial. OBSERVER "Have you ever noticed?" remarked the Close Observer, as he stood lean ing against a telephone pole tthe corner of Second street and Railroad avenue, "how this Immediate vicinity Is fast being turned into an open-air livery stable? No; "Well, Just cast your peepers around. There, beside te White Ele phant, are several express and par cel delivery wagens. They stand there all day. On Railroad avenue, in front of the saloons and pawn shops, you will notice several hacks. They stand there nay and night; feed tbeiir horses there, water them, and make that particular spot their livery sta ble. "All of which creates a state of af fairs that Is decidedly obnoxious to one's nostrils In passing. Our street cleaning department Is not quite as large as that of New Ycrk city, and as a consequence, much of the re fuse occasioned by these many teams standing there day and night, stays right where It Is, and the consequent odor Is at all times, especially when the earth Is damp, something awful. wnen It rains, the stamping or these teams In the mud makes a slush and mud puddle that stays there for many days, and I have often seen la dles pass these wagons and hacks, dressed In white, only to have the ani mals stamp on. a fly Just as they were passing, with the result tnat their pretty, white dress takes on a very black-speckled appearance. "Hack and delivery wagon stands n cities wnere the street cltanlng de partment Is working day and night. s all light, but here, where we have no street cleaning department, and where there are no. provisions made for carting off the film from these many teams, it should,, be done away witn.
