"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
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
K. L. Medler. president of the Commercial club in extend ng an invita
tion to the public to alien. the reception tonight, particularly requested that
the lailles be present ,n ful' force.
The reception is to be .ninety inf .rmil and it will not be u dress affar
In any sense of the word.
A number of the best speakers In the city will address the people and
there will be good music b I he Klks' band, which has tie. n secured for the
en' ire evening.
The reception is arrange,! as a special token of the appreciation of the
people of Albuquerque for the good wm k done by Del, gate Andrews and
every one who can possibly arrange to be present, should do so. The club
rooms will be open eaii.v in the evening and there will be ample accommoda
tions for all w ho may come.

The diplomat pressed the button at
his elbow and a valet of irreproach

"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

"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
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

ed out a long knife and stabbed vi
ciously, but the blade struck some-

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

morning drive." he explained to an
