What is being done in .the matter P Tempest 'ugit- Mosics made bis mistakes and so does Catron. He wouldn't be human if be didn't. The democratic papers of New Mexi co are kept on the defensive by the republican press. Judge H. L. Warren, of Albuquer que, is said to be in tne lield as a can didate for delegate to the Chicago convention. 'Why notP It is not unlikely that Judge L. .Bradford Prince may be induced to visit Las Vegas and give us a talk on the newer phase of the silver question. If a resident of Santa Fe can be be. lieved,' the narrow streets over there are so dark sinse the electric circuit has been turned off, that it isn't safe for the average citizen to come down town at night. Ant mnn who is foolish enough to believe that he can throw the vote of the New Mexico delegation in the na iionai republican convention to any particular presidential candidate, with one single exception, would seem to be a fit subject for a lunatiq asylum. It is perhaps but meet and proper, under the circumstances, to state that "a Santa Fo lawyer-politician" did not furnish the data in regard to the man ner in which the city election at Santa Fe was carried by the democrats, the facts furnishad at tie instance of this paper being incorporated into an edi torial. And it may just as well be stated as not that material allegations therein contained have not even been so much as denied. It was left to a republican over there to take excep lions, to certain statements made and actually thought to be true whan they were reduced to writing and bung oc the "copy" hook for the printers. Comptroller James H. Eckels will speak in Cincinnati, to-night, and en deavor to set the bankers and business men of that city aright on. the financial question, as it is seen from the admin istration point of view. A number of unsuccessful attempts were made to get Mr. Eckels to deliver an address in Cincinnati, but not until the invitation was sent in the names of the chamber of commerce, the commercial club, of Cincinnati, and the clearing-house as sociation, and subscribed by scores of prominent citizens, could he be in duced to go. In accepting the invita tion, Mr. Eckels wrote that he desired it to oe understood mat ms visit was entirely without political significance. Owing to the activity of S. M. Inglis, state superintendent of publio instruction, to-day's observance of arbor day is' more general throughout the state of Illinois than ever before. Previous to the election of Governor Altgeld, very little attention had been paid to arbor day in that common wealth. The present state executive, however, is something of a stickler in the matter of the day and its celebra tion, and accordingly he directed Mr. Inglis, last year, to prepare a circular calling attention to the day .and treat, ing of the proper manner of its obser vance. This, year the circular was en larged into a pamphlet and was care fully distributed in all the publio schools throughout the state, with the result that it gavo a decided impetus to the movement. The governor now prides himself on the fact that next to the dis tinguished Nebraskan having charge of the agricultural portfolio in the present cabinet, no one has done more to foster the idea of tree-placting and the preservation of the forests than himself. ' ouu siuiii)i;it m:coHi. Some rental kable statistics were re cently compiled by the Chlcugo 'Tri bune, showing the record of murders in ' thii UDitud Slates for a sciles of years. The llgures for 1895 are indeed startling, and almost Justify .one in ask ing whether this can consistently be cilled a clvUlzsd oountry. The follow ing is the story cf blood for the ten years ended with 1895, lbs figures showing the reoord for each year: 188(1 ; 1.44ft ita ' ... a,8;is 1NH8. 18H9. 1 8110 lBHl 2.181 8.47 B.900 1H1I2. 1W)3 IHllt. 6,7111 G.OIIS O.S0U 18H5 10,600 . Americans hold up their hands in horror when they read about slaugh ters in half-civilized countries, but here is a statement showing that within the limits of our own country there were no less than 10,500 murders during the past year. What explanation can be given for tbls extraordinary and shameful record P The prohibitionists will, of course, claim that most of the murders are due to drink. Undoubt edly, that has had muohto do with the awful story of crime, but the explana tion Is not sufficient. Probably, if the faots were carefully collected and ex amined, it would bs found that much of this rapid increase in crime is di rectly traoeable to the unrest, dissatis faction and despair engendered by the ever-increasing struggle for. wealth, the pace of which becomes more try ing every year, resulting in filling our jails and insane asylums, to overflow ing. "- ', , ":..' The American nation is becoming a nation of discontented people, strug gliog to emulate the small army of millionaires ' who themselves are not content, but are-trying to- become bil lionaires in their turn. There is yet Another causa for (his increase of violent crimes, which we cannot afford to overlook. It is told in the simple statement that of the 10, 500 murders in 1895, only 132 of the murderers were hung. It has gat so far in this country that it is the great exception when a man who has killed another forfeits his life to juitice. If it were reasonably cartain that the old Mosaic law of "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" would be rigidly enforced, without fear or favor, there is no doubt that a large proportion of these 10,500 murderers would have hesitated before committing the deed. 1 he coarse personalities now run ning through oertain New Mexioo papers are of a character to give out aiders a mighty 'poor opinion of the journalism of the Territory, and of the people who will Support such journal ism. If what these warring editors say of each other is true, they should all be either in .the penitentiary or the asy I urn for imbeciles, or at least debarred the society of reputable, self-respecting people. When two editors reach the point of hostility that calls for the use of the most insulting and vituperative epithets, the time has como when they should throw down the pen and go at it i t etarmis. The readers - of those papers feel nothing but disgust for tbe valor that - expends .itself in mere mouthings and ferocious gesticulations, but they would prick up th'eir ears and take a mighty lively interest in any real preparations for war, and abandon heir several occupations to be present and witness the settlement of these feuds by wager of battle. . None But Ayer's at the World's Fair. Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the ex traordinary distinction of having been tne only blood puntier allowed an ex hibit at the World's fair, Chioago, Manufacturers of other Sarsaparillas sought by every means to obtain showing of their goods, but tbey were all turned away under tbe application of the rule forbidding the entry of patent medicines and nostrums.' - The decision of the Woild's fau' authorities in favor of Ayer's Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows: "Ayer's Sarsaparilla is not a patent medicine, it does no! belong to tho list of nostrums. It is here on its merits " Quite a Buruber of Odd Fellowi met at Dr. JJearup's office in Eddy, and after some preliminary work looking to tne organizing of a, lodge in Eddy, adjourned to meet again, Monday evening, April 2Uih, at li. A. JVymeyer's office in the court house.- Tbe order is represented by about twenty mem bers in Jiiddy and vioinity. Tje Good Qualities Possessed by Hood's Sarsaparilla are almost beyond mention. Best of all, it purities the Dlood, thus strengthening the nerves. It regu lates the digestive organs, Invigorates the kid neys and liver, tones and builds up the entire system. It cures dyspepsia, scrofula, catarrh and rheumatism. , Remember, Hood's Cures. Hood's Pill, act easily, yet promptly and eneeuveiy, on the liver and bowels, 25o.

The Political Situation in Colorado and Houiothliig About the Minoa. To the Editor of the Optle. CoTorAXi, Colo., April 14th, 1896 Polities are beginning- to interest the average voter of this state. From present appearances, the political cauldron will contain as pretty a devil's tooth, as one could wish tor. We are at sea, just now, and no amount of study a-ieius to help us sight a safe harbor, in which to cast our vote, wbeu the ides of November come around. We became a convert to republican principles when Lincoln ran for the presidency in 1860, and we have never, in all these years, voted for anyone not a republican. This year, however, we are in a quandary. The republican party seems hopelessly split on tbe sil ver question, the eastern Wlog beirtg "gold bugs," while "we uns" of the wild and woolly west have a firm con. viction that silver, and lots of it, is what we want, in addition to the yel low metal, and tbe greenbacks. Now, it seems to us, that the repub lican party oannot successfully strad dle the gold and silver question; any more than it oould consistently advo cate protection and free trade in tbe same breath, yet that is about what tbe party evidently expects to do, by its advocacy of the gold standard in tbe es stern states, and declaring for free silver, west and south, i - Ordinarily, the republican , party would win this fall, not only in the national contest, but also in tbe state elections, but divided against itself on tbe money question, there is a reason able doubt of republican success, it tbe democrats and populists fuse, as there seems a strong probability that they will. In this state, there is a likelihood of a fusion between populists and demo crats. There are also large numbers of republicans who do not favor the free coinage of silver, and henoe tbey would hardly care to vote for a free silver . candidate; while, on the other hand, . tbe free coinage wing would certainly not vote for the "gold bug" nominee. To ad J fuel to the flame, it is said to be an open secret that tbe free coinage issue is not popular with tbe rank and file composing the different parties in this state, but that only the political bosses and party leaders really favor it, and solely for selfish ends, and that when eleotion day comes round tbe "bosses" will be given a black-eye at the ballot box.. So here we are virtually singing: "How bappy could wo be with either, It tother dear charmer were gone." Tbe democrats are in the same fix, and the belief seems to be growing that this difference on the money ques tion in both the great parties will lead to the formation of a new party in this state, that will be for free silvej, and which will not only carry the state ticket, but will also defeat tbe national republican ticket in this state. Now, this being the case, and other western states being similarly situated, would follow Colorado's example by formiDg a third, or free silver party, tbe success o( the republican party, on national issues, would be rather prob lematical, to say the least. Whether oil can be poured upon the troubled waters, and harmony restored, is a question that cannot now be settled by argument, but time will tell. How does an offer of $9,000,0W for a Cripple Creek mine strike your That is a sum which fairly takes one's breath away, yet it is tbe amount Mr. Stratton was offered for his famous mine. He promptly declined the offer, because he now has about $9,000,000 worth of ore in sight, and can therefore feel as independent as the traditional' hog on ice. Stratton, who, until recently, fol lowed the business of carpentering, now bids fair to make John W. Mack ay s wonderful record for luck seems insignificant. With bis $9,000,000 mine, and numerous otber valuable claims that he owns,, he will soon be i be richest man in the mining world. He cau now sit down to his breakfast and order two extra eggs on the side, without a fear that such unheard of ex. travagance will leave him a "busted community." Stratton's phenomenal luck is, of course, the one case in ten .thousand. Rich as Cripple Creek is in gold, one can bnd many prospectors tbere, to day, who find it up-hill work to raise a needed "grub-stake." Wbat an anomaly. In the midst of populous wealth, want and misery hold high car nival. ' :.- ', We have just been thinking what a pity it is that ex-governor and blood-to-the-bridle-bit Waite, has transplanted - himself to ' the : more oongenial soil of Illinois. fWbat fun tbe old warrior' loses in not . being in Colorado during a convention time and what a hornet's nest he oould stir up if he would only be tbere to take part in tbe august deliberations Waite is a nrst-olass crank and a pro nounced demagogue. Yet strange to say, I have found in my nosing around for news sod information, that Waite is a prime favorite with the , average wage earner. The : miners, whose cause the governor espoused during the riots, are for him to a man, because be stayed with them, when they needed help, and if the governor's re- nomination and election depended on tbe votes ot tbe miners, Waite would make a clean sweep over all com petitors. However, Waite is happy I lie and Gov. Altgeld are chums, and oo-religionhts, politically. mm When we came to this place, last fall, we expected to catch our death of I cold, and get frozen up "promiskus." We were mistaken and found tbe win ter in this mountain region nearly as warm as it is in southern New Mex ico. Colorado seems to be all right on climate and weather, even if she is rather "unsettled" in politics. John J. Bippus. Summer Mountain Reaort.
