"STATEHOOD FOR NEW MEXICO" Bryan tfie Dictator Some days prior 'he Republican national convention tn Chicago, the CItlxen called attention to the fact that the Republican parti' had Ion made H a custom to embody In Its platform those things which the people wanted while the Democratic party In strong- contrast thereto, made up Its platform f theories and policies advanced by a few leaders entirely ignoring- the wishes of the people. In line with that statement Is the following editorial from the St. Lou's Times, a Democratic paper, which however, like the New York World, Is not afraid to speak its mind clearly and forcibly, w hen It comes to party matters. The Times puts the situation squarely In the light as follows: One day last week the Times asserted that Mr. Bryan would soon ap pear with a platform to offset the Republican creation that came out of the Chicago convention. The expected has happened. Mr. Bryan has written his views, naturally taking issue with every point advanced by the party In opposition. Mr. Bryan takes too much responsibility. He Is not the Democratic party. In 1900 he forced a "paramount Issue" into the platform and thus made very certain the re-election of Mr. McKinley. In his Madison Square Garden speech he voiced sentiments in relation to railroad ownership that brought attacks harmful to the entire party. Mr. Bryan may say that he speaks and writes as a private citizen, but this may be iuestioned. He is the admitted head of his party, and what he says is taken by the country at large as Demo cratic doctrine. In 1906 the Democracy was floundering about In search of an Issue. Mr. Bryan's home-coming, after a tour of the world, Inspired the organization with confidence. Every faction had agreed to his captaincy; but there was no Issue. Mr. Bryan, giving no consideration to the vast body of citizens back of .him, prepared and delivered a speech that was so thoroughly out or harmony with American thought that it was at once repudiated by Demo cratic leaders everywhere. Yet In the face of that and other similar experi ences, Mr. Bryan is now out in a platform that can represent only a personal view; but the nearness of the convention and Mr. Bryan's relation to It at once suggest that the Denver planks are already written and approved. Mr. Bryan presumes. He ought to admit the existence of a Democratic mind or minds other than his own. He ought to Invite or at least admit conference on subjects of vl;al party Interest. Seated In his library at Fair view, he assumes the role of dictator. The result may be very good for the Bryan publicity department, but It puts a heavy burden on an already over loaded party donkey. If Mr. Bryan would serve the Democracy well he would refuse to speak until spoken to, and then only in an advisory capacity. ittCe Feminities Many traits that belong to the fair sex ennnot be accounted for logically, or, at least, they transcend the masculine senses. Why Is it. for Instance, that a woman always buttons her clothes from right to left, while all male humanity has from the first decreed that the pro cess shall work from left to right? And why will she persist in having her buttons at her back where she cannot reach them without going through the performances of a contor tionist 7 Every day we hear of some woman's pocketbook being snatched away on the streets In broad daylight. Why does she always carry It openly in her hand? No man not a candidate for an Insane asylum would think of walking on the streets or riding In the cars with his pocketbook In full sight and easy for anybody to grasp. But a woman Invariably does. The excuse is that she has no pocket and no place for one. But with o much drapery and so many folds this Is a poor excuse. A man finds places for at least sixteen pockets and he has no folds to hide them In. Woman can't even find place for a pocket for her watch, diminutive as It is, but she must pin It to her waist, and the wonder is that it is not snatch ed or lost oftener than It la. A writing desk is supposed to be designed to write upon, but nine women In ten use the desk only to hold the ink bottle, and write upon their laps. It certainly seems awkward and unnatural to write in that fashion, and yet how easily a girl or woman writes in that way And what Immense vol umes of little nothings she thus scribbles. And. O. why is it that a woman you do not know, If she has occasion to write you a letter, will almost invariably sign her name without any title to distinguish her as married or single? Of course, it may be no concern nf yours whether she Is single or not, but It is very awkward to address your reply without knowing. Wise minds have s.udled over this little peculiarity in vain. It cannot be rationally ac counted Tor. But. after all, perhaps woman would not be as delightful as she Is but for such little traits as these which make her so different from man. Reception for Delegate dndrevos It is to be hoped that there will be a g I a. tendance at the reception at the Commercial club this evening hi honor of Delegate W. H. Andrews, who hat certainly done exceptionally good work f..r this citv during the las: nesston of Congress, The reception Is In no wise political. It Is merely a tribute to the ninn who secured thirty thousand dollars for the big Irrigation congretw and who also succeeded in getting an appropriation for a magnilicent federal building for this city. Delegate Andrews was ably assisted by ilovernor Curry an.1 the other members of the New Mexico delegation, bu his influence with the big Pennsylvania contingent In Congress was directly responsible for the ap propriations received by this city ami this territory.

The diplomat pressed the button at his elbow and a valet of irreproach able gravity gilded through the door like a particularly sedate cuckoo, I'll be closely engaged for the rest of the night. Don't Interrupt me on any account." "Yes, sir." The cuckoo bowed sob erly and disappeared. Sliding, a pearl-handled revolver Into his pocket the diplomat entered a small closet. A few minutes later a bent, lean, repulsive, old man issued forth. He fumbled along the wall until something clicked, and a small, secret door swung open. Entering, he closed It behind him, and moved down a narrow passageway. He came out on a quiet side street. The bent old man knocked at the door of an obscure house Hn the su burbsone long knock, then two short ones. When the door opened. he displayed a curiously cut coin. Without any word being spoken, he was led along a narrow, completely dark hall and admitted into a large, well lighted room, occupied by ten men seated at a table. Place was made for him and he sat down. A black whiskered, surly looking fellow, who had been speaking when the old man entered, resumed. Lean ing forward he tapped emphatically On the table with his forefinger. "Every morning when he drives he goes by the Libog square. We will hide in Manuel's house and he'll pass directly by us, beneath us In fact. The street Is very narrow there. Ho will be so close we can't, miss, and In the con fusion there'll be no danger of being captured." He turned to the old man. "What do you think of my plan, brother?" The latter thumped his stick smart ly against the lloor. "Fine, fine. Weil send our bullets straight to the mark on this excellent, lazy, worthless king of ours." "And this queen, too. We won't pass her by. We'll w ipe out the whole breed while we're about It. Won't we?" The expressions of his listeners changed, and big. brawny fellow across the table cried "shame." The old man turned on him In a rage. "iiame?" Is she any better than the klngV A white faced spend thrift who wastes all our money, are you afraid, milksop?" The big man's reply was unexpect- 1 ed. He reached over and gave the olu man's nose a tweak, and catching . a few of the coarse, limp stranus of ' gray hair between his finger tips. Jerked them violently. The result was startling. The old man's hat fell off, a wig of gray hair was dragged from . his head, the stubbly beard left his chin and jaws, and the men round the : table found themselves looking into the face of the diplomat. "The American!" The word fell from every lip. t The man next to the diploma; Jerk ed out a long knife and stabbed vi ciously, but the blade struck some- thing hard between the diplomat's shoulders au l broke at the blli. Draw- , ing from his pocket the pearl-handled Wholesale Grocers Wool Hide and Pelt Dealers Albuquerque and Las Vegas I Gffoss Kelly & Co0 i ( Incorporated) revolver, the diplomat knocked over the table and sprang toward one cor ner. With his fingers to his lips he gave a shrill whistle and feet were heard running along the passageway. The s.eps in the passageway reach ed the door, and it suddenly flew open witn a crackling, creaking noise, the lock wrenched and broken. A squad of red-coated policemen poured into the room, and In almost a breathng space the occupants were overcome und securely bound. With a sigh the diplomat flicked a speck of dust from his ehovs and squared his shoulders. "My suspicions were right. They were plotting to assassinate the king at the LI bog square as he took his morning drive." he explained to an epauleted captain. The captain's e.ves opened In pure unconcealed amazement as he looked at the diplomat. "I we thought one of the detectives was doing this. sir. an old man." he exclaimed. "How did you get here?"
