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
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.
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
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.
Brief Story of the
Recent Dreyfus Case
The New York Times.
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
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
6. It is alleged that there Is evidence of one fals
witness at the Rennes trial.
"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

"Well, Just cast your peepers
around. There, beside te White Ele

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
