MANY A HEART IS HEAVY AT A MERRY SOCIETY FUNCTION. PHONES: BUSINESS OKRCE 286 EDITORIAL ROOMS 3 THE MILK ORDINANCE.! The oily council has before it at the present lime an ordinance which has for its oiij.-.v.! the lii alih of i lie city, and the action of that body is going to be watched with tin; utmost interest and if the members do not give heed to the situation then they are going to he asked 10 explain why, The ordinance referred lo is the so-called "milk ordinance" and has no other object In view but the giving of good milk to the citizens of Santa Fe. .fust why a certain opposition has developed, is difficult to understand, hut the time has come here when the motives and the reasons of the positions of the members of the city council are going to he inquired into, and if (hey are opposed to those measures which are for the public good then they will be replaced by those who have the good of the city at heart and who will give heed to the demands for health and progress. There have been times when men in public positions in this city have gone on and done as they chose or as their bosses told them to do and no one lias inquired why this and that was done. Thai lime has gone by. If there is going to he opposition to the ordi nance which is now before the council and which Is for the good of the city and has no other object, then we waul to know upon what the opposition is based and why certain members are against it. We want an explanation. It is a situation where silence is not wanted. It is a time for those who are holding public position to tell what their reasons itre for opposing a measure which is for the protection of the public j health. I ' The people have a right to know. These things will enter into the election the coming spring and they are going to be remembered. - We are all getting tired of the old methods and they are going out of dale. Already they have outlived their usefulness, If they ever had any, and there will be reasons demanded for the public action of those in public positions. An investigation now and then would not be a bad tiling, just to see what j is being done and why. The people would like to know how their money is being expended. This lias not been done in the past, and if an ordinance which is for the! good of the city is going to be slaughtered, they want to know the reasns for such action on the part of their public servants. There is a good deal of interest, in the ordinance referred to. and the action of the council will be closely scrutinized. n "The hostess has conferred a great honor upon me, Miss Passe."

A new and valuable institution is "The lied Stocking Club." You won der what this is. It is an association of people who are looking to those who have no outlook for Christmas and who are likely to be neglected by Santa Clans if some society like the Red Stockings does not take up the matter and help the kiddies out.

I those who would not otherwise know Would it not be a good plan THE PROPER JUDGES. Now and then there comes to light a rare bit of humor which was not intended as such and yet reaches a point that the most facetious peddlars of wit fail to get anywhere near. The grand jury of the county of San Miguel passed upon the report of the traveling auditor the other day and upon the subject of printing and the awarding of it to the Optic regardless of the cost or the prices offered by other printing establishments, this rollicking humorous jury says: "As to alleged extravagant prices paid for certain supplies and books by the county commissioners, we submit that the county commissioners are better judges of the prices properly to be paid than the traveling auditor can ue, and mat tne personnel ot me board ot county commissioners for!tlmss jn tle Paaj nn(j (.ne Brooklyn the. lust 11 years should be convincing proof that all expenditures made by the j Women are deeply interested in it.

These pictures are in colors and are a novelty in that way as the average pictures are not given with this added feature to make them more beautiful. I understand that Mr. Parkhurst is going to run a few of these on the movie screen in the near future and then it can be understood by all just how valuable they could be made as an advertise ment for Santa. Fe. It occurred to me that it would be a good scheme to find out from the j Pathe people what could bo done with the Pathe Weekly pictures in taking these beautiful views and giving them throughout the eastern states. In my opinion they would give ue more of actual value than any kind of advertisement we could possibly put out. The views give such a variety and are so full of color and sugges tion that those who saw them would want to see tne reality, there are ' views of the Indian in different coudi- j tions and of scenes of the west and ! of the old city of Santa Fe, giving I some of the scenes that would most i attract. Then there is a picture of the ceremonial cave ot tne curt dwellings that is a beauty, and a view of a pine forest out here that would surprise those of the east who have the idea Deaf- William, do you think the people are mind readers?

Most of them will not speak German at all. To most who do speak it, it will be a foreign language. In school, instead of Schiller, Goethe and Heine, they will read Shakespeare, Lowell and Edwin Markham. When liberty of the press is to be cham pioned they will look up old John Mil ton. When resistance to tyranny is discussed, they will glow with enthus iasm, not at the deeds of any German hero, but at the equally splendid lives of Pym, Hampden, Eliot and Crom well. In legend they will read Chevy Chase and the Ballard of Sir Patrick Spens, and not the Nibeltiugenlied.
