Tin nsnAv, maim, uk7. i I J THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN Published Daily and Weekly. By The Citizen Publishing Company W. R STHICKI.EIl, WILLIAM E. lUUKiAX, President. Editor and Business Manage. ATTORNEY GENERAL REID DID IT From th ieinarks made by Attorney Heneral V. O Tleld at Hoswll. It might appear that he Is attempting to Kteal from the deponed governor the title of "living acrlflce," which was bestowed upon him by a fpw a'1'! republican and democratic papers. Mr. Held said he "did It." He was referring to the rather peculiar 'i.nd deal which one of the things that brought about Jlafterman's removal at the hands of the president. The point in dispute was the usurping of the powers of the commissioner of public lands by the governor and the affixing to the deeds the seal of that office, which the law explicitly states only the commissioner -hall have the power to do. The attorn y general trios to shield the govt i n, ir by Mating that the boy executive acted upon his advice nd a written opinion. Attorney General Held, however, neglected to ex plain that no matter how many opinions he handed down upon the subject, the law was explicit upon the point and the governor knew the law. While he may, as he says, be the one upon whom the blame should fall, yet the governor is responsible for bis executive acts, regardless of all the advice arid legal opinions in kingdom come. This is the view President Theodore Hoosevelt and the United States attorney general took of the matter. The attorney general then artfully attempts to cre ate the Impression that no harm could accrue to the ter ritory since the governor had taken steps to see to II that the funds received In exchange for the title to the lands in question were kept Intact, separate and apart from all other funds in the territorial treasury, in ordc that they might not be past returning In caw the coii't.' held the transaction null and void. This is on absolute perversion of the facts. It is well known that the governor, and was prove:? by an Investigation that the governor made every effort possible to have the monies distributed among the vari ous funds of the territory. This was prevented only by the fact that Land Commissioner A. A. Keen, whoso honesty is unquestioned, refused positively to receive the monies or to distribute them. Incidentally. It may be mentioned that the gov ernor even went so far as to threaten Mr. Keen with removal from office if he did not distribute the monies as per the governor's orders. It Is only due to the unflinching honor of Mr. Keen that the funds were not distributed and that they now remain In a separate fund. The attempt on the part of the attorney general, who will alo "resign" with the Uagerman regime. t-i create sympathy for Hagerman by this ruse. Is a pretty weak sort of a political play. The president and the secretary of the interior ut Washington, however, were in full possession of the real facts and know that statements to the contrary me un true. The attorney general also tries to again Inflate that exploded statement that the president had been de ceived. The report published in Tuesday's Citizen to th3 effect that the president told the Clancy party that he knew all the facts before he removed Hagerman Is a sufficient denial. In view of the whole affair being a clued incident Jn ao far as the Hagerman regime is concerned. It would appear that the best thing the attorney general could have done would have been to hide hit own errors in advising the young governor a9 much as possible, and Jet the blame rest where It technically, a least, belong? that is, with Herbert J. Hagerman, who listened to too much poor advice as it was. The attorney general must have known the tru'h of the whole deal, and that being -the case, what object had he In attempting to pervert the facts? He might answer for himself. AS IT SHOULD BE The Citizen, as well as every man, woman and child in the southwest, approves most heartily of the action taken by the Commercial club and the Boosters' club H condemning the attack made upon the character and business reputation of General Francis Torrance, by one Hadden, who sent a communication to the Pittsburg .gazette which was a misrepresentation from beglnjjjg to end. T1 resolutions do not mention Haddeiii which Just as well, perhaps, since he is too small fry. The condemnation of his actions In attempting to speak for the people of New Mexico and of Albuquerque could not have been worded too strongly, however. The resolu tions fail to note the fact that the offensive and unjust letter referred to was published not only In the I'lttshurj Gazette, but in the Albuquerque morning paper as well, ..which should have and which did know the truth. General Francis Torrance, head of the Pennsylvania state board of charities and a business man of untar nished reputation, has done more for the development of New Mexico than any single individual in recent years. He deserves and has the thanks and support of every honest man in this territory. The resolution! adopted by the two organizations of this city are no more than plain, simple justice to a man who has been wronged by a tllghty individual claiming to speak for the Boosters' club of this city without knowing whereof he spoke. They are as follows: "Whereas, There appeared In the Pitlstiuig Press 01 April 23, 1SU7, certain communications derogatory ;.i the good name and business integrity of Francis J. Tor rance. It is therefore 'ttesolved by the Commercial club and the Booster' club of Albuquerque, X. M., in joint session assembled, that such communications did not emanate from, no' meet with the approval of the general public of this city; and it is further "itesolved, That we express to General Torianc our confidence in his honestly and business integrity, and believe that all of his acts In this territory wer--honest, square and above board; and we express our appreciation of the efforts he has made in the develop, ment of New Mexico; that we tender coir hearty support to him in carrying out any further plans; ami U is further "Resolved, That these expressions of confidence and appreciation be properly brought before the general public, and that a copy of these resolutions be for warded to Gcner.t) Torrance. "G. L. B Hot IKS, ' ' President Commercial Club. "P. F. M'CANNA, ' Secretary Commercial Club. "FRANK M'KKK, "Mayor and President Boosters' Club. John lkk ci.arkf, "Acting Secretary Boosters' Club." That bclnfr the case, It is not only your privilege, it Is your duty to see that you vote for that bond issue and a nf w city hall. The election will be held May 4. It Is absolutely necessary that a good strong vote Is registered for those bonds. To do that, every man should be at the polls. Don't forget the date May 4 and don't forget your duty to yourself and your city. Vote for the new city hall. The Farmington Knerpilse, of Fatmington, San Juan county. Hon. Frank Staplln, chief clerk of the last legis lative hou-e, editor, is a wide-awake weekly paper, which easily carries off the banner In its home county as the leading newspaper. The Enterprise usually has some sort of a kick to make, and it makes it in no un certain tone. When the Interests of San Juan county, however, file concerned, the Enterprise is in the fore most rank pushing the good things along. A kicker like that is a good thing for any communulty. Hurrah for Governor Curry our George still seems to be the growing sentiment In New Mexico. The outlook is that the Inauguration of the new governor will be a brilliant affair. The Santa Fe ladles ure al ready discussing those new gowns. The momentous question now Is, who will carry the presidential banner for the prohibitionists during the coining campaign ? The rain was unpleasant while it lasted, but every drop was a dollar in the pockets of the people of New Mexico. Things are getting pretty warm down In Washing ton these days over that presidential question. The American people certainly have an array of all sorts ot talent to pick from. It Is probable that each candidate will be put through his paces with the big stick before a selection Is made. After all. It's not a bad Idea to keep that big stick well in the foreground. It is now quite interesting to watch the Hoswell Record scramble for a place on the fence.' The Shriiiers are a good. Jolly bunch of fellows and more of them ought to come to Albuquerque. I.oiig liw? the Shriners! The Queen of the May. In New Mexico, yesterday, wore her winter clothes and furs. Well, the Clancy party has no kick coming. Every mother's son of the crowd saw the president. BE AT THE POLLS MY 4 It w,l loot co.-t you increased taxation to have a new city hall 1.1 Albuquerque. The fund Is already a large one. It will not tak you long to go to tile polls and cast our vote for tile city hall bond is.-ui on May t. It does not mean money out of your pocket. I; means money in your pocket.

I Is one of lb, greatest needs tod.-.y. Vote for the bond issue to build a new city hall and help make Albuquerque a good place to Hvt in. 00XXXXXXXXXXXXX3X)XXXC000 SHOULD A MAN SAVE MONEY AT ALL COSTS? 0XXXXXXXXOOCK0XXXXXXOQOOOvi Can the average man save money 7 Certainly he can! In this first short paragraph is embodied one of the greatest sociological questions of the time a ques tion that ever is rising for an answer and which ever is as unsettled as before. Yet the plain affirmative in the second paragraph is not to be challenged In Its direct truth. Then, you will sy, something must be wrong with the whole proposition. To which I give another as emphatic affirmative: "Why, of course there is that Is the w hole trouble." Like many other twisted great problems, this prob lem of money saving has been bandied about by the unthinking until half its garrulous advocates do not know the first elements of true saving. .. As a first proposition they cannot tell you what money is! Y'et, arguing from a plane of lofty ethics, we hear them preaching the doctrine of saving to all men In all con ditions of life, as if In the mere spending of less tha'i one earns a man is showing his highest duty to society. . An ethical treatise on the saving of money! One might as well preach a virtuous sermon on the indi vidual preservation of original sin. If ethics are to fig ure at all in the selfish proposition, let the question be not, "Can the average man save money?" Tut It on the truly ethical basis, "Can the average man afford to save money?" Not for a moment would society permit a man to save money at the cost of ragged, dirty clothing; hf becomes a miser meanest of human kind when he hoards money at such a jirlce, Society will hot countenance his saving If the nivalis, to it be the pinching of his family's stomach, At the moment a man is known to have a bank account while In studied ways he is denying himself any of the neces sities and many of the common luxuries of his position. society declares him an outlaw citizen. Will the conventional preacher of frugality, then, explain Just what he means when he urges the ethics of saving upon all men? For, manifestly, there are men In tens of thousands whose incomes from year to year barely suffice them in living decently from hand to mouth. My own practical experience of the world In Its lixed ways would prevent my preaching against sav ing. But I maintain broadly that no other one ma terial doctrine is more Inimical to true ethics than is this civilized and enforced necessity for saving. Sim plicity and frugality always will be virtues; saving as certainly always will be one of the vices of community life. But what Is saving in its conventional acceptance? It Is the having of stored wealth In excess of one's prooable needs. It is the perversion of a natural dis position in one to live well for himself and his fam ily according 'o his means, and substituting for this sane materialism a fetich worship of money. For n man inertly to put aside money of the present In an ticipation of a future necessity cannot be called "sav ing" in Its accepted sense; this is a duty which he owes to himself it nil to his family. It Is when saving be comes hoarding that vlclousness enters Into the equa tion. Two friends ate dinner with me a few months ago. Each of them was neatly dressed, and noticably the trousers worn by each of them had Vieen newly press ed, one of these men, whom 1 knew to be in poor circumstances, spoke jestingly of what a good Job of pressing lie had done the night before. I was ex pressing admiration of his economy aud of his work when my other guest In bantering tones insisted that he. too, had done Just as well by his own garment. But this I disputed warmly. Why? For the reason that this second friend worth sev eral bundle I thousand dollars, always had been n disciple of saving. He had narrowed under the Influ ence of s.ivmg. I his one- Idol or closeness In Ins nature Is the thing that ha estranged many from him, while I. knowing the many sterling qualities that en ter into bis manhood, often regret Its presence. In the case in ,olnt it was meanness only which prompted him to save a quarter which in community fairness should liae been paid to some tailor striving to make a living. Here is that ver l it sent menace of the spirit of sinliitr. It requite iioie ill. ti aeter. more judgment, more -t use of proportion, and mole of the saving graces of hie to determine Ju-t where and when ami how much -ball be hoarded In fairness and decency than are in volved of tin-so graces iii almost any other relation ii. lift. "Can the average man save money?" Any man who will be mean enough, selfish enough, hard t nough, can save money. Can you doubt that sli" le nient fur it moment? Haven't you seen a hundred ex implex of Its truth? But whether or not every decent, honorable, man ly man can afford to try to save money Thai is something for the Individual only to decide. John A.

No. come to think of it. 1 don't believe I would care to say that while I was being shaved. But, to return to the subject. I Just saw you paying fifteen cents for your dl'iner, and concluded vou were a repoiter. Right? I thought so. Of course, I don't usuallv tackle the vic tim himself, but I never knew any thing that would fiize a reporter. Now, that I've got you, I want you to do a little missionary work for the good of suffering humanity. I've got a grievance I want aired, slug head, top of column, next to pure reading, where your city council will all read it. Do you know this town will lit erally drive a man to drink yes, drink, alchohollc indulgence, booze, beer and high balls. Now. I'm a tee totaler on moral principles. The other day I was a long way from my hotel, and was suddenly smitten with a dry thirst. I cavorted gaiiv into the nearest saloon, winked at the bai keeper, and says real familiar: "Give me a glass of water. John." It cost me fifteen cents. Even a teeto taler will never stand for paying fif teen cents for a glass of mere water. The next day being famished. I drop ped Into a drug store, and asked if I might Indulge in a little aqua pura. The yellow haired young thing had the effrontery to ask me did I say soda or Just plain sundae. That cost me ten and in five minutes 1 was thirstier than ever. Then I happened on that drinking fountain on Second and Railroad. There were already seven people ahead of me, and the last two were small hoys wno to save time dipped the cup In the horse trough. But I was famished and not as finicky as I might be at the Har vey house. Just as I was about to raise the battered cup to my parched Hps, with vague memories of the old oaken bucket, and anticipation of the sweet, cooling draught, an old lady drove up in a carriage and asked me would 1 mind to please hand her a drink. I postponed the Indulgence, and gallantly handed her the brim ming cup, which ignomlnlously drib bled over a fresh pair of cuffs. She drank two spoonfuls and then ye gods she was an old lady a nice looking old lady somebody calls her mother I will not say much merely that fact. . She dragged a disreputable, half matured, lop eared puppv from under the carriage seat and 'then I went away. .When I reached the back door of the White Elephant the dear thing was ecstatically lapping the nec tar which JnpKei' never slppc. em phasizing his; delight vvtiii that ex asperating habit pups have of wag ging their tails like they wife calling the fire wagon. Wouldn't that drive you to drink, on the square? I'll tell you something should be done to protect your city's morals. 0 ' SEXTEXt E SEItMONS. Sorrow is sympathy's school.
