OTHER SIDE PRESENTED, Under the caption, "TaE Optio Tak en In," the Reporter discourses as tol lows on the water works question, up at the base of the Raton mountains : Wonder who furnished the Las Vegas Optic with that estimate of cost of putting in a water service for Baton? The Optic man was stuffed, that's all. Dollars to doughnuts, The Optic's in formant didn't tell him that the water company paid taxes on their plant last year at a valuation of 12,000; and be prob ably forgot to state tnat tney do not pay one cent tax on the plant to the town. He doubtless also forgot to mention to The Optic that the then town trustees took snap Judgment on the people of the town ; that they refused to Investigate with a view of the town constructing its own water works, and refused, point blank, to grant thirty days' time to secure competitors for the franchise. He, of course, failed to mention tbat It was a Job, hatched out be fore tbe town was incorporated; tbat the whole business was steeped in fraud from beginning to end. Bucb trifling matters as tbe fraudulent election, for instance, were no doubt also forgotten. Tbe statement that the tewn made several unsuccessful efforts to secure an adequate supply of water is a bare-faced fabrication, as the town corporation was but a few weeks old when the fraudulent franchise was fastened on it. Again, tbe statement tbat the present board thought the town was expending too much for water rent, does not fully elate the case. Tbe board does contend that it l illegal to pay more than two mills on tbe dollar per year of the assessed valuation for fire hydrant rent. Tbe total tax assessment of the town for all purposes, of tea mills on tbe dollar, has not realised sufficient rev enue with which to pay this one single item of rent for fire plugs. Bo tbat there are two very strong reasons why this excessive rent should not be paid, viz: First, it is Illegal and second, it would be against public policy. For in stance, what would The Optic and the people of Laa Vegas say if they were taxed . ten mills on the dollar, all tbat la permitted THE SECRET OF A BEAUTIFUL SB IS FOUND IN .

A SANTA FE LETTER. Special Corrtnxmdcnee ft v Optio. Santa Fe, N. M., March 13th, 189G. The political pot U beginning to boil in this city, and is getting exceedingly vara). The republicans have held their county convention, and it looks to an outsider as if ex-Gov. Prince had gotten away with his opponents, bag and baggage-, and compelled the men that have been hitherto against bim to support him. The ex-governor ia get ting strong support from the raining element all ever the Torritory,and may yet bob up for political honors where least expected. He certainly has play ed a very shrewd game so inr this year, and is exhibiting more strength than was expected. Governor Thornton leaves to-night for Washington, and expects to be ab sent three weeks or thereabouts. Mrs. Thornton acoompanies him. He ex pects to look after several matters of great interest, not only to Santa Fe, but to the entire Territory, and will devote a portion of his time to having the bill providing for the - legalizing of the Territorial bond issues in aid of Territorial institutions, less the Brioe amendment, passed. A strong effort is being made with Governor Thornton for the removal of Sheriff Cunningham, of this couaty, on charges of being short in Territorial funds. So far, the charges have not yet been presented, but as sure as they are and are proven, they will be fully investigated and acted upon and if sustained, the governor has said he would act promptly and vigorously and would apply the same medicine and would carry out tbe law- just as earnestly in the case of a democratic sheriff as in the case of a republican sheriff. S. Wedeles, a well-known and re spected merchant, is being spoken of by the republicans bs nominee for mayor, at the coming city election. The democrats are organizing very hard for the fray, but the republicans have so far done but very little. But should Mr. vVedeie and good school and council tickets be nominated by tbe republicans, the chances seem to be in their favor, although there is some dissatisfaction with alleged boss ism in the party. . But good nomina tions will have the effeot of doing away with the existing dissatisfaction. Secretary Miller is working hard to secure a delegation to the democratic Territorial convention, that will sup port him as a delegate to the demo cratic national convention at Chicago. tie claims mat be will have tbe Ber nalillo county democratic support and if he can have Santa f e and the upper northwestern counties, he figures ne is su;e oi the coveted delegate ship. He can be seen, evening after evening, visiting tbe democratic voters, hobnobbing with them and in dulging in an occasional drink with them, and being- hale fellows well met all around. The news from Don Ana county is somewhat alarming. It was reported, to-day, that an effort would be made by tbe parties in Las Craces, desirous of keeping Guadalupe Ascarate in as sheriff, to obtain a writ of prohibition on Judge B&ntz, from Chief Justice Thomas Smith. But this may all blow over. At any rate, all good citizens ana lovers ot right and law, are clad of Judge Bantz' decision, and want to see Sheriff Reymond put a stop to law lessness in DoiU Ana county. It Is high time time tbat a different state of affairs should exist. Ia this connection, it is timely to stats that Governor Thornton's lifo has been threatened. suouia &e not stop bis efforts to stoo lawlessness ana murder in Dona Ana county, but the governor has made up bis mind otherwise, and proposes to act in such a manner as to carry out tie law xuiiy.

M., March Utb, 1890 As we drove past tha new nor mal school building, now rising in Its magnificent grandeur on tha hill, where it can be seen from almost any part of our city, we thought of a decade ago yes, tbe half of that, when there was not a public school building In town. Is it possible for a town of this size, in five years, to have such build ings as tbla normal school budding, the insane asylum, the Masonio temple, three beautiful publio school buildings, with a balMozen business bouses, and scores of dwelling houses having been erected in so short a tlmeP It is possi ble, for it has been done; and yet there are tbosa who cry "bard times." .... Our publio school system has made greater advancement, however, as an organization than other institution of such general interest. Organised only five years ago, in the midst of great opposition, the schools have gone steadily forward, to the present -well organized and well ordered system. This Is all due to the desire of the people of the town and tbe selection of a school board that has gone forward. The writer being in position where he is able to learn something of tbe general sentiment of patrons of the school, he is gratified to know that the great inaj rlty are well pleased with the work of I the school, and the board is to be con gratulated in holding on to an experi- enced man as superintendent, and in tbe choice of teachers who are able tol oonduct the schools with decided sue oess. There are two suggestions, if you will grant us the privilege, we will make, although we have Lever taught school: . First The standard ot our schools would be raised if teachers were re quired to pass special examination, or simply an examination, as we under stand they are not required to pass such. Second Tbe sanitary advantages would be greatly enhanced, if tbe pu pils tnat attend the city ball naa a good, well-ventilated school building. M. None But Ayer's at the World's Pair. Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the ex traordinary distinction of having been tbe only blood purifier allowed an ex hibit at the World's fair, Chicago. Manufacturers of other Sarsaparillas sought by every means to obtain a showing of their goods, but tbey were all turned away under the application of the rule forbidding the entry of patent medicines and nostrums. ; The decision of the World's fair authorities in favor of Ayer's Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows: "Ayer's Sarsaparilla is not a patent medicine, ft does not belong to tho list of nostrums.

We, Powneyj CaL The Remarkable Vital i ty of an Aged Calif ornian. Stands To-day Unscathed by Disease How Conquered Rheumatism His Story will Interest and Benefit all Old Folks. - From tht Examintr, There is at least one happy man in fcn Trancisco to-day one man who can enjoy, despite the fact of his being sixty years of age and of corpulent build, the full and free use of all the powers of mind and body. James Keenan is a prominent liquor dealer at 256 Brannan Street, and it is he who is now lauding those who have restored him from a bed of pain to his former youth ful activity. Mr. Keenan had, to within a year ago, been blessed with the wjoyment of almost perfect health. He hail "never known what it was to be confined for weeks At a time upon a couch of painful disease, ttor even to lose the vigorous actiss of mind or limb which had enabled him, through the many years of his business life, to perform liis daily tasks unaided and unadvised. It was year ago that Mr. Keenan first suffered the hand of disease to take hold upon him. At that time he was stricken down by an aggravated attack of rheuma tism, which robbed hira of tbe use of his lower limbs and of both his hands. For fully six weeks he lay on his couch, s help less victim of the dread disease, and ail the time he suffered intense pain in the affected portions of his body. He could not move himself upon his bed, and all that he ate' had to be fed to him by those in attendance, lie had about despaired of ever gaining re lease from the clutches of the frightful dis ease, when one morning his attention was drawn to an advertisement in a morning paper, of a remedy for rheumatism. The story of what succeeded this casual glance nt a medicine advertisement can best be told in the words of Mr. Keenan himself, who tvhen asked for an explanation of his seem ingly miraculous cure, gave the following account: , , " It seemed to me that after all the weeks of terrible suffering that I had endured there could not possibly be a relief. I had no faith in patent medicines, and when I saw in a paper the advertisement of Williams' Pink Pills I was induced to try them only in sheer desperation. I did not feel any re lief until I began taking the second box of the pills, but then the pain beg&n giadually to leave me, my appetite became better, and I could sleep soundly throughout the night without experiencing any of the jerking pains that had before kept me awake. I continued to take the pills and it was only a short time until the rheumatism had entirely left my hands, and I had so far recovered the use of my lees as to be able to walk about the house without assistance. In about two weeks more I was entirely free from the dis ease, but I took two more boxes of the pills as a precaution ajrainst a return of the rheu matism. From the time that the la9t trace of the disease left me I have not felt the least sign of its return, and I can truthfully say that I now enjoy as free use of my )lmbs as ever I did before the rheumatism attacked SIC, " I have taken the pains to recommend Williams' Pink Pill to a number of my friends who are snfl'ering from rheumatism. I think I know of no other remedy that will afford such quick and permanent relief from rheumatism as do Williams' Pink Pills, and I only hope that many others may be brought to see and feel the high curative powers that the pills possess."

A? 8BW He San Francitco, Ctot Tour years ago, at the time of the trouble between the United 8 tutus and Chili, as a mult of the killing of the sailors of the U. 8. S. Baltimore, in the streets of a Chilian eity, many Americans were obliged to leave the country for safety. Among them was W. M. Lugg, the private detective and col : lector, whose olhce is in tbe Crocker Build- ing. San Francisco, Cat. HI hen Mr. Lumr left Chill he went across the mountains into Argentine, travelling on muiebacx. Mr. Lugg says that the trip is a delightful in point of beautiful scenery and perfect weuiner, but many people dislike to under take it on account of the unheallhful stag nant water which they are compelled to drink along the way. Many persons have been stricken down with disease from hav ing: drank of H.' and in a number of rases the attacks haveproven fatal. The native Chilians drink the water without injury to their systems, but it bas a baa enect upon those who are not used to it. " I fell a victim to the injurious qualities of the water." said Mr. Lugg. " It affected my kidneys to an alarming degree. When I cot over into Argentine I thought tbe trou ble would gradually leave me, but instead of that it grew more aggravated and I suf fered terribly from pubis in the region of my kidneys. I was en route to Chicago and I dotrrniined to reach my destination before the complaint shonld grow so serious as' to confine me ttf my bed. Upon reaching Chicago I at once consulted a physician, who told me my kidneys had been affected by driuking polluted water. ' He treated me for sometime for that complaint, but I crew steadily worse and new ailments were added to my already serious condition. I began to have neuralgic pains in my head, my spine was affected with shooting pains and I had no control over the urinary organs. It was next to impossible for me to get any sleep. I nv Ktrnka manv a nieht suffering the most intense pains, ami tlie physician unable to relieve them. " But relief came at last. One day one of my friends came to my room and handed me a box of Williams' Pink Pills. Of course I laughed at him for daring to think that any patent medicine could aid me when my Dhvsician had failed. I took the pills, how ever, to oblige ray friend more than for any latin l naa in mem, auu i was iraiw w iue most Joyous surprise or my me wnen i real ized that I was being relieved of my paint. First the peculiar pains along my spine ceased, and then my neuralgic trouble be- fan to grow less and finally left me entirely, t took a good- while to improve the con- a number of boxes of the pills I knew that they had done their work successfully, for then I had retrained control of the urii organs and the action of my kidneys was strong and steady.
