"WE GET TIIE NEWS FIRST.'
STATEHOOD FOR NEW MEXICO"
Ws favor the Immediate admission of the territories of New Mexico and
aVrtsona m separate states In the Union. Republican National Platform.
A complaint has been made in Parliament that King Edward travels too
much. And yet his majesty long ago forsook his old time pace.
Those Colorado train robbers who relieved a Pullman porter of $14.75
way have been moved as much by revenge as avarice, however.
Mr. Taft's monthly pay check of $5,635.01 would provide a comfortable
living for five families for a year, outside of the White, House, of course.
It's a good thing for Mr. Roosevelt that he was not amenable to the laws
of Georgia while he was president. The calling of a man a liar in that state
Is deemed by the courts there to be a breach of the peace.
A rather discouraging thought comes from London Health. It says:
The Ideal man does not exist: perhaps one who had a fine liver has a bun
Jon and in most of us there Is a screw loose somewhere."
Although Mr. Roosevelt Is now a private citizen and Is a few thousand
miles away from Washington, he is getting as much daily notoriety In the
newspapers as he did while he was the chief executive of the nation.
Reports have It that Mary Garden, the grand opera prima donna, is to
marry a titled gent answering to the name of Prince Mavrocordato. She
can well afford It as long as her voice holds out and she is able to gather
$1,600 a night for her every appearance on the B'ag
All of the United States troops have now been removed from the islnnd
f Cuba. It Is to be hoped that they have said a final farewell to the little
republic. But many are the fears that these hopes will not be realized.
Such fears are not groundless, either."
'Baron Gwydyr, born In 1870, and who, until the time of his recent death,
was the oldest member of England's peerage, was different from most old
fellows. He attributed his longevity to moderation in eating and drinking
and abstinence from tobacco. ""Generally, a centenarian Insists that his long
life resulted from eating and drinking whatever he pleased and from using
tobacco by the carload.
. General Nelson A. Miles is quoted as saying that he could never quite
understand why a man wants to shoot elephants and other animals wilfully
and particularly elephants because they can be made to be so useful.' Now
If General Miles had only put this query before Mr. Roosevelt sailed for Af
rica he would probably have had it answered In a way that would have been
entertaining. If not convincing.
On an actual capitalization of about $70,000,000 the Standard Oil com
pany Is reputed to have made one billion dollars In the last 27 years. And
a reading of John D. Rockefeller's reminlscenses which have been appearing
In the World's Work, would lead one to believe that every cent of this money
had been earned honestly and with nothing but fair and square dealing above
board. Still, there are some persons who will be a bit skeptical.
In addition to much pleasurable homage heroes have to put up with a
lot of things. Indeed, many things besides roses are strewn along their
paths. There's Jack BInns, for Instance, the wireless telegrapher who turn
ed the sinking of a steamship from a terrible disaster into pretty 'much of
picnic. Sortie advertising men tendered him a .luncheon In Chicago not
long ago and they sang to him songs of their own composition, both as to
words and music.
A Frenchman named Bourdias has devised a flouting city which will per
mit people who wish to cross the ocean without running the risk of sea
sickness to do so. It is to be about 3.000 feet In length, with an appropriate
breadth, will have avenues planted with trees, gardens, squares, kioHkg for
music, bands, a theatre, circular railway, shops, etc. He does not tell how
he Is going to propel it. but he is sure that it will be. afer and more com
fortable than other shii. At lust accounts he was xtill at large.
Thomas I. Lewi appears to be a worthy successor to John Mitchell as
the head of the I'nited Mine Workers of America. He is vning great tact
and Judgment In handling the miners' side of their differences with the op
erators in the anthracite coal fields where a strike seemed imminent on
April 1. It loks now an though the proposed strike will not occur at all.
and Mr. Lewis will be entitled to much of the credit for averting It If this
desirable condition of affairs maintains, and he hasn't disregarded the Inter
ests of the miners, either.
Oklahoma's militiamen may be One fighters but their difficulty seems to
be that they cannot get near enough to their quarry to show Just how brave
they are. (Ireat must have been tlielr respect over their Inability to get near
enough to one lone Indian. Crazy Snake, for the purpose of demonstrating
Just what they are capable of doing on a battlefield. It really is too bad that
they have abandoned the chase. Their battle with this Indian would have
been a memorable event to have chronicled in the history of a state where
Strange and uniiMial things are always in the doing.
Once more there are rumors in the air to the effect that the Santa Fe
Is to run a daylight train on the Rio Grande division, s.iys the Socirro
Chieftain. Hope deferred in this regard has already made the heart sick
The patrons of the road along this division have very nearly exhausted their
resources In wav of efforts to induce the Santa Fe official to give them at
least one daylight train a day between Kl Paso and Albuquerque. There re
mains one resource, however, that It might be worth while to try. If the
shippers along the division would enter into an ngreenient to give the Santa
Fe Just as little of the haul between here and eastern points as possible, the
officials of the road would probably very soon begin to hit up and take no
tice. Isn't the suggestion worth putting to the test?
A bress dispatch from Guanajuato, Mrxi.o, cm. .ins information which
ohould urouse the prohibitionists to instant action. It says: "Julio Med
donado, owner of 'a big hacienda in this slat'-, claims to own the only herd
of booze fighting goals in the world. Hi' recently acquired a field in which
the owner had grown the marihunana plant, from wlilrh is distilled a bev
erage which is said to brat American 'chained lightning' and turned his
goats In on it ln savs they began frolicking about like members of a
plumbers' tmi -n i t a picnic and that they refuse to lie down even at night.
They have a peculiar Mopy' !"ok in the yes, he deciures, and many of them
walk n their hind feet like Satyrs. They refuse now to eat anything else
and he sa he supposes thej will all die from the tremens His ranch is near
Celaya, this state."

E. H. Harriman, probably speaking
for the majority of tiie railroad fi
nanciers, as for himself. declared
several days ago that the people had

Godfrey Chesteron was 9 years of
uge when his parents sent him V
the city to become useful, wise an I
great. Ilefore faring forth he was
bill by his father to observe the gol

gentle tone of voice Godfrey said he
In the city Godfrey was eagerly
snapped up by Mr. Silas Fleecem and
prevailed upon to accept a highly
ti munerative and responsible position
in his (minting house. Mr. Fleecem
whs a crusty man of means, hut he
had remarked Godfrey's delicate
brow of alabaster whiteness, and re
solved to make him his partner.
On a pleasant morning Godfrey's

Would ex pen, 1 yjur hoarded savings
for government bonds than for these
shares in the ."kinnemgood pluecr
mine. These shares 1 grieve to Mute,
are of no worth, sir."
"Do I believe my ears?" said the
rustic squire, with rather startled
amazement. "Or has the long her
alded millennium arrived In the per
son of you, my pale youth?"
"Indeed, sir," said Godfrey, his
young face bright with the love of
truth, "If you do but pay a sixpence
for the Skinnemgood shales you arc
going to be bumped, so help me!"
"Honest lad!" quoth the country
man, a tear glistening In hln eye.
"Hut, nlns! It must be. A visit to the
employer said: "I have a matter of
bueinvss to attend to at the tavern,
tc-wit: playing at skittles. Do you
remain here and deliver this parcel
of valueless shares to a dull-witted
clcdhoper who will arrive to pur
chase them. He diligent, dense and
discreet, and do not take any bad
money." Then he went on his way,
secure in the knowledge that the
lad's open countenance was worth its
weight in gold.
Sure enough, a rural gentleman
from the country ambled in to pur
chase the shares. But behold! God
frey bethought himself of the golden
rule, and he grew very grave for
one of his years.
"Oh, sir," he said, "it behooves mc
city without 'being trimmed w o lid
deprive me of all pleasure. Put your
self In my place and consider." So
saying he directed a wistful glance
at the coveted parcel.
Then did Godfrey own that the
fulfillment of the golden rule would
be to do even as the etranger desired
him. Taking from him the price in
crisp JlOO bills Godfrey suffered him
to place the snide securities In his
portmanteau and go on his way re
joicing. Returning to his establishment.
Mr. Fleecem noted with profound
glee that Godfrey was Indeed a boy
to be trusted, and as a mark of hi
satisfaction gave him a piece of
string, or cord, to play with.
