That the aforesaid braying is a nuis

The President and the Railroad.
No one need have any question
concerning the course President
Roosevelt is going to pursue in re
gard to legislation to empower the
interstate commerce commission or
some similar body to regulate and
when necessary make railroad rates.
His position in relation to this sub
ject is clearly correct, and he will
have the cordial support of the great
mass of the people in all his efforts
to induce congress to enact the re
quisite laws. The power contem
plated is urgently needed in order
that abuses and discriminations may
be prevented. The railroad com
panies will not make the requisite
rates to insure fair opportunities of
trade for different communities, and
the only remedy the people possess
is an appeal to congress and the
So far as President Roosevelt is
concerned the appeal has not been
made in vain. He recognizes the
need of some authority to force the
railroads to accept just rates, and he
will present the matter clearly and
forcibly to congress at its next ses
sion. What that body will do is an
open question which no one can an
swer nntil a snfficient number of the
members declare themselver to en
able one to form an intelligent opin
ion concerning the attitude of a ma
jority. Tne railroad oompauies will
probably, oppose all such legislation
and they may be able to influence a
large number of representatives and
senators. Bat if tbe people declare
themselves with emphasis, the in
tloence of the railroads, however
great it may be, will not prevail.
It would be wise for the railroads
to recognize the inevitable aud place
themselves in line with public senti
ment. If they think that legislation
of the kind contemplated would be
injurious to their interests, they
should consider both President
Roosevelt’s assurance that he will
oppose auy attempt to do injustice
to those corporations, aud also the
possibility that much less drastic
legislation might be secured if they
established some basis of agreement
with the people in regard to the cir
cumstances under which the power
to make rates should be exercised. —

To Whom it May Concern.
May 12th, 1995.
In view of the fact that the bill
entitled “An Act requiring the Anal
ysis of the Natural, Thermal, Radio
active, and Mineral Waters of the
State of Colorado,” presented to the
last general assembly failed to pass
and because of the urgent demand
for an examination of the radio act
ive minerals and springs of the State
of Colorado, the Trustees of the Col
orado School of Mines have author
ized the undersigned to make the
following preposition:
All persons forwarding specimens
of miuerals and samples ot natural
waters, found in Colorado, to Prof.
E. R. Wolcott, Colorado School of
Mines, Golden, Colorado, will re
ceive a report as to their radio active
properties free of charge, provided
all transportation charges are pre
paid and the locality from which the
specimen or mineral water was taken
is stated aa accurately as possible.
The regular price such an
analysis is $5.00, but for tne reasons
stated above specimens found within
this state will be examined free of
charge nntil March Ist, 1900.
The analysis will not be made un
til the opening of the college year
on September sth, hence reports
should not be expected prior to that
Mineral waters should not be for
warded before that date as their
radio-active properties are not perm
At least a quart of water is requir
ed for analysis.

Double Tracking the Santa Fe.
It will be a colossal undertaking
to double track the Santa Fe rail
way from Chicago to California and
tbe Gulf of Mexico, but that this is
to be done has just been announced
by President Ripley of that system,
who has been on a vacation in Cali
fornia. The plan of two tracks from
the Great Lakes to the Pacific ocean
does not necessarily imply that the
tracks will be laid parallel. In many
cases cut-offs will be used, thus sav
ing iu mileage as well as train oper
Thomas Corrigan, a Pueblo rail
road contractor, has a large force of
men now engaged in doable track
ing the Santa Fe’s line from Lynn
to Hillside, N. M., a distance of
about seventeen miles over the hilli
eat country on the entire Santa Fe
system. After this work is com
pleted, which will probably consume
from ninety to 120 days, the Santa
Fe wsll then start double teacking
the line from Raton, N. M., through
La Jnnta and Pueblo, to Denver,
which will complete what is known
as the “half circle.” —Las Vegas

termining to admit to membership
in its organization none bat men who
are engaged in the growing of live
stock. They do this, not because
they desire to be clannish, but be
cause the growing of live stock is a
sufficiently large and important bus
iness to command au association of
men engaged in that business.
Railroad men aud others are inter
ested in the business but not as pro
duoers and their point of view is
quite apt to be entirely antagonistic
to the view held by the stockmen.
There may be organizations with
a broader purpose than that of the
stockmen in which all may join, such
as association for the develodment
of all western interests, but the
stockgrower is a large business man
on his own hook and it is therefore
quite natural that he should desire
au organization of his own. —Colo-
