Republican National Platform. 3fie VVorCa's cth Supply Deplte the rtat productivity of the Nevada gold llclils. whlcn in jhii Increased the yield of that ftato from nine to fifteen and a half millions of dollars in vulue. the total gold output of the United States In that year showed the sharp decline of four millions from the total of 1906. In California. Alaska. Colorado, Montana and South Dakota largo fall ings ff in ied reduced the product of those large auriferous areas more than ten millions. This Is a heavy loss and one we could not contemplate with equanimity were It, not discernible that this big reduction was brought to pass by causes largely local In bearing and which hardly will be repeated. In California there haa been for two years a sharp reduction in the yield of the quarts mines of the state, but from dredger work and from the reduc tion of ores from the new copper smelting industry there were large com pensating gains. The ahortage from Alaska, which amounted to almost three millions, was accounted for by labor troubles and an unusually short season. The yield of Colorado was curtailed by the destruction of large reduction works early in the season and the shutting down of some of the mines where gold was a by-product when the slump in the selling price of base metals took place in the latter half of the year. A like condition cut the Montana yield, and the shortage in South Dakota was due to a fire early In the season, w hich destroyed the works pf the state's greatest mines. As a result, then of these diverse causes, we produced only $90,000,000 In 1807. It Is likely, therefore, that the 1908 yield not yet compiled has returned toward the hundred million mark. But our loss in 1907 was compensated In other Melds. Mexico dug up $6,000,000 more gold than In 1906. The whole world supply was $410. 55R, 800, a figure greater than ever before recorded. This Is extraordinary, for as recently as the five-year period, from 1881-1885 inclusive, the average annual world yield of gold was below $100,000,000. In the second decaae of the nineteenth century the world's gold product showed an annual average of only $7,600,000. Thus the earth now gives up to man a total yield exceeding by fifty times the gold output of less than a century ago. Yet man wants more. The absorption of gold by the arts is large, but in 1907 the world's coinage ex ceeded the yield. The United States coinage was $132,000,000, or $42,000, 000 more than our home supply. Thus, while our supplies in the ground are being tremendously reduced, the insatiate search continues to increase the yield. The Transvaal field wnich in 1901 produced but $5,000,000, in 1907 showed the tremendous total of $133,000,000. Other African fields brought that continent's total to $152, 000,000, exceeding greatly the North American yield of $117,000,000, and almost exactly doubling that of Australasia. The statement of the superintendent of schools of New York, Dr. W. P. Maxwell, tha one-third of all the school children in that city have not enough to eat, would, Indeed, be a sad commentary on our civilization if it were es tablished as a fact. It Is not Improbable, however, that for the sake of plc turesqueness of assertion Dr. Maxwell has over-stated the case. There is un doubtedly much suffering in every large city, but it Is hard to believe that any such condition as Dr. Maxwell outlines exists anywhere In this generally prosperous country. Mr. Roosevelt must be looking with a little envy on the "bully times" that President-elect Taft Is having these days. Had the opportunity been of fered, however, he probably would have gone Mr. Taft one of two better. Ho could have been depended upon to have caught with his own hands the 'pos sums that graced a recent banquet board In the south, and also the alligators which furnished the steaks for a more recent dinner. , 1.1c CHAMRRAY t.IM.HAM POR...10' Amoskrair (liamliray (.Ingham comes In 32 Inches wide and la fast color; plain colors of tan. light and medium shades of blue, grey, brown and ox-Mood; also nssjrted s'se checks In light or dark blue and pink, Sat urday night special, yard 10 FAY IIOSK.

PLENTYOFWATER IN RIO GRANDE VALLEY ! So Much Snow on the Water shed That There May be a Flood This Spring. That irregularities amounting to more than $1,000,000 have been discov ered in the Russian quartermaster's department is the latest revelation the cable has conveyed of corruption In the Russian army. It Is no wonder the Douma recently refused to make further appropriations until the manage ment of things is taken away from the present military heads. Santa Fe, X. M., Feb. 19. January was unusually mild and very little snow fell except In the mountains of the north portion of the territory. The I light snows and rains of the other dis tricts were confined principally to the higher mountains. In the upper Rio Grande and the San Juan watersheds there was a material increase in the J reported depth, and an abundant sup ply of water for these drainage basing during the coming season seems as sured, as the snow Is In deep drifts, well packed and In many places froz en hard. In the upper Rio Grande I watershed the amount of snow Is deemed sufficient to cause an over flow in the spring of some of the trib utary streams. In the other drainage t areas the prospects are not as en ' couraglng and more snow, or early spring rains, will be needed to assure a sufficient supply of water for irri gation. The average depth In the mountains of the San Juan was 35 Inches, an average Increase during the month of , 7 Inches; In the upper Rio Grande the average aepm was ill incnes, an in crease of 9 Inched. In the San Fran cisco. Gila and Southwest, the aver age depth In the mountains was 9 In ches; In the Canadian and N'ortheaht, 15 Inches; In the Pecos and Southeast the average for the entire basin was 11 Inches, and the reported depths varied from 2 to 36 inches in the sev eral mountain ranges of this vast Sheriffs the country over would likely be delighted to get the recipe of the sheriff of Cook county, Illinois, otherwise Chicago, for feeding prison ers. He's been able to provide those in his care with three meals a day, or substitutes therefor, at a cost of but six cents per day per prisoner. Mr. Kuhn of California, recently told New Yorkers that if the Orientals ever got a start In California the white man would have to retire to the lands east of the Mississippi. Still, when It comes to crowding things, the Ameri can people have a nice little record to fall back on. An Augusta. Ga.. police judge has exceeded Judge Landia and his Stand ard 1)11 line by fining seven negroes $30,000,000 for allowing dirt to accumu late In their yards. That police Judge ought to move to Albuquerque If he really wants to make a record in that line. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat reasons that the only reason the Demo cratic party nominates Mr. Ilryan la because he is such a good loser. He comes out of one defeat ready for another and takes a constantly growing Republican majority without complaint. Most persons will be inclined to question the reasonableness of the de mand of the Hoston broker, Frederick 1.. Small, for $500,000 damages for the alienation of his wife's affections. Affections which cun bo "alienated" hard ly seem to he worth half a million. Alice Room velt-Longw orth has been made a full-tlledged member of the bricklayers' and stone masons' union.

Vlles There is no snow below an al titude of 8,000 feet except on the north slopes; more l.s needed in high er mountains to insure water supply. Alto C. B.

Roanokf Postmaster On the west side of the valley. about 8 miles from the Pecos river. the snow l.s 8 Inches deep: In the foot hills east of the river, it U about tw. and a half inches. Mescaler P. E. Jette There Is very little snow on the south hillsides, but higher up in the Sacramento mountains there is snow. Cloudcroft J. I. Hailey The Sacra mento mountains contain but very little snow. Now that the California legislature has experienced the delights of a presidential message or two. It probably never will look on a mere govern or's message again as anything especially worth while. "What is the matter?" "Hoo-hoo! Johnnie found a fat, fu..v catterpill.i'-, an' de selfish pig ate it all himself!" The ( imgressioiial Record may be a little slow, but it Is accurate. It an nounced Taft and Sherman's (-lection in its Thursday issue and printed the figures and documents to proe it. 1 It is said that "Eve spoke only tifty-thiee words in the Garden of Kclen." We are in doubt whether this means she did not talk much, or that her vo cabulary was merely limited. The recent sinking in the G.itiin dam is n referred to as an "insig nificant depression." Among tin- k:.i int- in-inics of the ( anal the depres sion is more pronounced.
