ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN.
PAGE FOUR. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7. T?06. THE ALBUQUERQUE CITiZFN Published Daily and Weekly. By The Citizen Publishing Company W. . STRICKLER, President. W. T. McCREIQHT, Business Manager. THE LOCAL CONDITION It Is hardly necessary for The Cltlzrn to nay thnt the results of yesterday's election In this county wore nMther irhat It exports nor desired. This paper brieves heart lly that the best way to nialntniu republican principles In the ascendency Is through the maintenance of republican organisation. Hence, It always has supported the regu lar action of its party In political nominations, lind It expects its course In the future to be along the same lines. If there are party differences or party grievances, It has Beemed to The Citizen that such differences should )e settled and such grievances adjusted within the party and not by alliances outside of It. ' Put It is evident that many republicans have differed from The Citizen In this matter, as shown, by their votes on yesterday. Such republicans, together with the dem ocrats with whom they united, have Bbown a largo ma jority In the county, and The Cltizea most heartily en dorses the principle thnt the majority should rule when their wishes are properly expressed. It follows, therefore, that this paper ha no intention to relight in Its columns the lost campaign. It accepts the decision of the majority, and the campaign has ended. The Cltlsen made no personal attack upon the candidates of the firslon party, and it accepts their triumph with no shadow of personal grudge or Ill-feeling. And while saying this for itself. It would urge the same upon all its readers, regardless of whether they belong to the successful majority or the vanquished minority. Already the democrats are saying that two yenrs hence, or even in the next city election, they will have a straight ticket of their own, thus Ignoring the fact that It was republican assistance that gave efficiency to the movement on yestereday. There remains, therefore, but one thing for the republicans of all factions to do. That is to accept the result, bury their differences, banish hard feelings and come together again In a united l-iyalt y to the republican party, and a united labor in the main tenance of Its supremacy. In conclusion of this aspect of local political condi tional, The Citizen desires to say that It cannot look upon yesterday's results as a condemnation of republican prin ciples, the republican party or the republican candidates. Most of the latter were men of irreproachable character, of marked and well-known ability, of undoubted probity, and whose republicanism and fitness for the offices to which they aspired do not admit of denlel. That they were defeated only shows that a large part, and probably the largest part of the republicans of Bernalillo county, are thoroughly opposed to the present official county organization of the party. It C"es not seem to The Citizen that any other conclusion is possible. Under other conditions the republican ticket would undoubtedly have been elected. In the cause of peace ami harmony, and of future republican success. The CMtizfti is con vinced that the county republican crganlzataion must be changed and satisfactorily formed on another basis. NATIONAL OUTLOOK At this writing It. is too early to form any correct Idea of the results In congressional elections. On Mon day evening, at the close of the campaign. Chairman Sherman's estimate of republican majority In the Sixtieth congress was fifty-eight. , Most of the lepublloan prophets, says the Globe Democrat, have been placing the lead at between forty and fifty. The present majority Is 112, hut this is so large that no republican expected to see any close approach to It made in the election of 1906. The re publicans have been carrying the house ever since 1894, beginning in that year. In 1894 the republican majority was J50, but ..that was In the middle of Cleveland's term, when the panic of' 1893, the split over the silver Issue, the hauling down of Ihe flag In Hawaii and the Wilson -Gorman "perfidy and dishonor" tariff all con verged to overwhelm the .democratic party. ;In the off .years since the republicans regained the presidency la 1896 the republican majorities were much smaller than are predicted for 1900. The republican lead was twenty in the election of 1898 and thirty In that of 1902. The Globe-Democrat also says that if Hearst shall go within 50,000 votes of carrying New Tork he Is likely to be the national leader of. the democratic party in 1908, otherwise the leadership will revert to Bryan. THE CAMPAIGN COST The New Mexican thinks that despite the fact that netlher party in this territory had much money to ex pend, the campaign Just closed did not cost less than $125,000. This estimate is based on the fact that the legislative anU constitutional candidates in the field numbered 2ini, while the county candidates numbered 500, giving a total of 700 candidates. This calculation shows that one voter out of every 100 in the territory was a candidate for office. Of course, this made local contests overshadow, in pubuic opinion, both the dele gate and the statehood question. One important feature which the New Mexican finds in the campaign Is that little or nothing was spent In vote-buying or other illegal purposes. The effort to Influence the public mind was made through the press, the rostrum and the mails. KYom Santa Ke alone the republican central committee sent out. more than 100,000 pieces of mall matter, and there as here the major part of the meager funds was spent in the cause of publicity. This was quite an improvement on election methods of only a few years ago. Las Vegas Optic: The campaign has been a warm one this year. lloth .sides have worked hard and per haps in the heat of the battle things have been said and done which calm afterthought would couple with regrets. But the campaign is over, and on the whole in San Miguel county it has lieen a decent and honorable one. The wounds left by political battle do not burn for long and ever the wars disappear. Ia'I us put away politics for a time and consider the business and rmn mercial interests of Ijts Vegas. The t'ilzeu agrees with the New Mexican that now is the time to renew statehood work with vigor. The best plan and the one promising immediate suc cess, is to hold a constitutional convent ion at Santa Ke next month, formulate a constitution, submit it to the legislative assembly foif ratification In January, and then present it to cougrs to show that the vot cast in this territory in favor of statehood Is hacked up by a sentiment that. Is thoroughly in earnest. New Mexican: The registration for the tall elec tion has giveu conclusive evidence of the marvelous growth of Ihe eastern pari of New Mexico and to some extent of other sections such as tirant county. lu fact, there is no part of the territory that ha& failed to give some evidences of growth in populataion since two years ago. considering that the registration lists were much more carefully culled of dead names and the names of tho.M- lm have removed, lhau during preceding years.

There are thirty-three beet sugar factories in Italy aud the beet fields aggregate 100,000 acres. The beet sugar Industry is " that needs developing right here at Albuquerque. In nearly all the states public opinion is against the convention system and in favor of more power in the people, and through the questioning of candidates aud publication of replies the people's rule is becoming a live issue.

In nine months of 1905 20,000 cars in excess of the total for the entire twelve months of any year previ ous to 1905, but 20,0tio more cars have already been or dered this year than were ordered In a period In 1905 which was two weeks longer. Last week alone not less than 44,000 freight cars were ordered, a clrcumseance which under conditions existing a few years ago would have been sufficient to cause no end of comment, but which is now looked upon as but little out of the ordinary Yet with such an Impetus, there are doubtless those who will question the prediction that January 1, 1907, will find the total of orders recorded In 1906 greater than that of 1905, because of the fact that the roads which are large annual buyers have placed their orders earlier, and, whilo contracting in many Instances for fewer cars than last year, have raised the totals to ti.e point which is not a true Indication of conditions. A study of the records at hand, however, shows thata it Is the orders for cars In lots of from 500 to 2,000 that form the basis for the total, and with the knowledge that the moral effect In this time of the year of such orders as hnve recently been placed has tremendous cumulative results, the prediction Is made that the close of 1906 will sec all records for orders for frcieht cars surpassed." OOOOOOOO 00XXXXXXX3C0XXX)000 MOST WONDERFUL BRIDGE g WHICH EVER WAS BUILT OOCX0XKCK?CXXDOXK0XXXXXXXKi The Royal gorge of the Arkansas river, In Colorado, one of the scenic wonders of the world, is to have a new feature to add to the amazement of the traveler. Nature began the wonder-working by using the river to cut a gorge seven miles long through the solid rock, which rises in continuous, semi-perpendicular walls for hundreds and thousands of feet above the roaring stream. Then man resolved to force a way through this gorge for a railroad, and In so doing worked another wonder. Where the gorge was too narrow to give room for the track beside the river the engineers devised the famous hanging bridge, which has long been regarded as one of the triumphs of railroad building. It parallels te river for seventy feet and hangs in tire air from steer roils spuported from tinisses anchored in the rock walls. Soon the traveler, gazing upward from the hanging bridge, will see the towering walls of the gorge spanned by what will seem to him a cobweb bridge. It will be a bridge, a bridge of steel, and the traveler may see a trolley car gliding across his vision half a mile up in the air. At the spot, where this bridge will be suspended across the chasm the walls are 2,62 1 feet high, and the gorge is fifty feet across at the bottom and . 230 feet across at the top. Apart from the scenic considerations the bridgt will be noteworthy as the highest In the world. Indeed, It Is In a class by Uself, its nearest competitor being the new Zambezi bridge, 430 feet In the air. The bridge will be built of steel cables and of flat steel, and the curved girders that support the structure will be Anchored In the granite walls, so that nothing short of a violent earthquake can loosen them. A feature of the bridge will be a plate-glass floor, which will en able visitors to gaze down into the gorge without danger, and steel railings will make It impossible for anyone to rail off. The work is being done by the Canyon City, Flor ence and Royal Gorge Interurbun Electric Railway com pany, which Is extending a line from Canyon City and Florence eleven miles to the top of the Royal gorge. The ascent is 2,800 feet and the summit is 7,900 feet above sea level. From Ute summit the cars will return to Canyon City by another route, running fifteen miles by the force of gravity alone. The bridge will cost 11,000,000 and the track extension another million. The American Inventor for October states that the spanning of this fearful chasm is 'one of the most ditti cult and dangerous projects yet attempted by engineers.' and says that the bridging of the Royal gorge hitherto has been deemed rriosterous from un engineering view point; indeed, the possibilities of overcoming the ensiin eertng difficulties in building a road on ether side of this gorge have been gravely questioned until lately The building of this new bridge, therefore, shows several interesting things: That , the American people will go in crowds to see a wonderful natural view; that the science of railroad engineering Is making progress and that there Is no limit, to the enterprise of the Amer ican in filling what he conceives to be a real want. Chi cago Inter-Ocean. xxxxxxxxoxxxxoxxxxoxxooo GOOD REASONS AGAINST 8 MPANESE IN SCHOOLS xxcooxxxcxxxxxcckoooxx The Japanese consul at San Francisco is complain ing t hat under a local law Japanese children are exclud ed from the public schools and relegated to the oriental schools," with Chinese, Indians and negroes. This evi dence of ambition on the part of the Japs is not unusual They seem determined to force a higher standard than Is accorded to other oriental races, and they are bavin some success. It is singular that while this demand for admission to the public schools is being made in California, the report of the fommissiouer of labor on Hawaii states that exactly the opposite trours is being taken by the Japanese there. I hey avoid the public schools there and maintain separate schools of their own, wherever prac tic-able. The eviiU-nt reason of this is that the popula tion of Hawaii is much mixed, and the Batlves aud Chi nese often mil number the Americans in a school district to a very large extent. Indeed, the commissioner of labor says the American families have not only taken their children out of the public schools, but have aetuually moved out of the neighborhoods hi the islands where i lie excess of orientals was very large. The reason give fur this is stated: The American pupil brought up among children of ail races and attending school In a district where a ma jority of ills schoolmates are Japanese never acquires a perfect mastery of his own language and speaks "pigeon English," often with a foreign accent. His pro gress In all studies has to be regulated by the progress of classes composed in great part of young people whose knowledge of English is imperfect, and where linguistic training necessarily supersedes instruction In the es sentials of the science or other subject taught. In ottier than purely pedagogic ways he is at a disadvantage. In personal habits and customs and social and ethical Ideas he is apt to grow like those with whom be is associated in sclosil life. It is evident that these race mixtures produce prob lems not contemplated by those who have assumed that the process of amalgamation would go on everywhere as it lias usually done in t. I'nited States. They have ovei looked the difference made by the overwhelming su perior numbers of American at home. In Hawaii, how ever, the commissioner of labor says: "It Is an open question whether the final result in the scaools will be the Americanizing of the oriental or the orientalizing of the schools."
