The editor of the Broad Ax had
the pleasure and honor of an inter
view with Manager Babcock and
Passeneer Aeent Wadleieh, this
week. These gentlemen are sup
porters and friends of thk paper,
and are also away up in railroad
circles. The Rio Grande Western
k growing in popularity daily, un
der their skillful handling. It k
fast becoming the favorite route for
passengers and freight in the West.
Hon. Geo. W. Thatcher is a
vkitor in our city this week, attend

gentlemen, as well as his talented
brother, Hon. Moses Thatcher have
extended their congratulations to
the editor of the Broad Ax on the
address "The New Democracy."
Both of these gentlemen are readers
and firm supporters of our paper.

The rustling real estate dealer
and genial gentlemen, J. W. Hamm,
has recently opened up a branch
office at Mercur, where he will be
prepared to handle mines and real
estate to the very best advantage to
all parties. Mr. Hamm k one of
"God's noblemen," and is a clear
headed, honest business man be
sides. The Broad Ax wishes him
success in thk new field as he
richly deserves. The new town of
Mercur will be greatly benefitted
by the location of such men.
Brother W. W. Taylor has resur
rected the Plain Double Dealer and
proposes to "hang on to the willows"
a while longer. Among a lot of
senseless twaddle last week, he says
"he has the names of all the colored
men who voted and worked for the
Democratic ticket in the Fifth Pre
cis ct." If he has, he has got a
list of very respectable persons.
What his purpose k, he does aot
state. Perhaps he means that they
are to be spotted; if so, we would
kindly .suggest that the gentleman
himself better "take heed test he
fall." Yoar Alack Iht will never

Fishermen have queer customs. A
few years ago the fishermen of Preston,
Lancashire, used actually to go fishing
on Sunday. It seems incredible, but
they did. A clergyman of the town used
to preach against this Sabbath desecra
tion and pray that they might catch no
fish. And they did not I But they found
out how to make his prayers of no avaiL
The fishermen used to make a little
effigy of the parson in rags and put this

the preachers of the gospel seem as
anxious to hurl the .soul of thk
poor victim into perdition, as the
ungodly. We have been informed
that no spiritual comforter has yet
asked permission to see thk man,
and if possible save hk immortal
part from hell fire. Comment k
TO BUSINESS MEN.
We desire to call attention of the
business men of the city, to our list
of readers and supporters. If you
want your businesi known by the
public, put an advertisement in the
Broad Ax, and it will benefit you.
The class of people we have for
patrons are of the very best in the
community. A word to the wise is
consumed, the fish bit like anything !

The Influence or Pen!.
To understand the relation of Mussul
man rule to religions and intellectual
freedom wo must note the influence of
the conquest of Persia an the Arab
mind. When the invaders took the cap
ital city of Khosru, they did not know
the value of booty. Some offered to ex
change gold for silver, and others mis
took camphor for sulphur. They came
like Bwarms of half starved locusts to
devour the land. They were banditti of
the desert, with no culture but the in
spiration of the plans. The only idea rf
government in these tribes was the
leadership of age and valor, as repre
sented in the sheik, with a natural mix
ture of hereditary respect. On the death
of Mohammed they broke into rebellion.
Islam really came on the world like a
fierce descent of desert clans on their foes.
Mohammed's ideal of government
was just to send his goveraors through
Arabia to establish Islam and then to
collect tribute from the poor in camels
and sheep; also as plunder to meet the
expense of his caapaiga. Under these
circumstances it was an absolute neces
sity for the founders of the Humlmaa
empire in the east to adopt in the main
the financial and administrative experi
ence of their more cultured subjects.
