THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 23, 189tt Complimentary, mention ot this paper in the Lincoln News, down the country : L edicion del semanario de Las Vegas Optic en poco flempo contendra un de partamento en Castellano. Esto bera el popel mas popular como nunca. The Denver Republican sums up column editorial on the applicants for statehood as follows: The east has do reason to fear the ad mission of the proposed states, for tbel Influence upon national legislation would be small, and besides, national legislation does not come as close home to the peopl as state legislation. Tbe interests of the people of Arizona and New Mexico in re spect of domestic legislation should receive the first consideration. Both Territories are amply able to maintain state govern meets, and their inhabitants desire state hood. To continue them any longer nnder Territorial governments would be to vio late a fundamental principla of American liberty and of the union as well. If justice is done they will be admitted, and it is any thing but creditable, to the people ot the east that because of narrow sectional prej ndices they seek to keep them out. ' There is a good deal of speculation in political circles as to the direction in which Senator Matthew S. Quay, of Pennsylvania, will turn his support, in toe event of tbe balloting at St. Louis being protracted, and his own pros peels failing to develop. Rumors have been current during the past two weeks that a change bad corns over the spirit of his dreams as a result of the strong manifestation of McKinley sentiment in the country and congressional dis trict conventions, and the selection in different parts of that state of a num. ber of McKinley delegates to the national convention. The senator, However, has himself put a quietus on these reports, while at the same time refraining from expressing any definite predilections tor any candi dale. There seems to be no question of the fact that he has an agree ment of some kind with ex- Senator Piatt, Speaker Keed, Mr Uiarkson and others of the anti-Mo-Kinley combine, and that, even if he wanted to, be could not at this stage of the game go over to the Ohioan without a breach of faith. At the same time, there is a feeling among the prominent politicians who are reckoned as his henchmen that the party in that state should be protected in some way, so that it McKinley is nominated on tbe first or second ballot, they should not be left outside of tbe breastworks But the senator himself is doing tbe sphinx act, and apparently guarding any surprises he may have in store for the eve of the national convention. 1HE female tattler would almost seem to be a permanent institution of every, small community. A large amount of time has been spent in ridiculing and denouncing her, still she will flourish and gossip rnd tattle. And no doubt she will continue to slander and lie as long as people are found to listen and believe. Little better than . , i , 1 1 , me taie-Dearer is toe one wnose ears are always cocked to reoeive evil re ports about their neighbors. Scandal is like a piece of counterfeit money, he who passes it is as bad as he who coins it. Don't imagine that "they say" throws all the blame off your sbou!d3rs when you repeat a lie. To aid and en courage a crime is nearly as bad as committing the crime itself. When you hide behind the excuse that some one else said it first you add cowardice to meanness. There are some people so mean that they feel a sneaking sat isfaction when misfortune befalls their best friends, and tbeir stingy souls feel aolhing but envy and malice when any one else has a iittle good luck. It is said that a pebble thrown Into the Atlnntio creates a wave that does not rest tiii it washes every Bhore, and bo it iii with an evil report started on its travels by a whisper or a nod. You do not know how many reputations it may destroy; how many fumllltts it may divide; bow many Uvea render unhappy, Cultivate the tame kind of dlngujt for the acandal monger that you have for the bog wallowing In the gutter. Those who wallow in the slune and filth ot small talk are none better than the genuine article. Shun the man or woman whose nose "is al ways bent to oatcb the Bcent" ot some dirty story about other people, those human or inhuman crows and buz zards who feed on the carrion of gossip. Mark this: It is generally safe to silently suspect the person who is al ways suspicious of others. There is a 'screw loose" somewhere in sued a nature. Like the cuttle-flab, which bides itself In a cloud of its own crea tion these human scavengers will seek to divert attention from their failings by continually harping on the short comings of others. The female whis perers generally belong to a olass who have no families of their own and so occupy their time in regulating the do mestic relations of others. They call themselves "friends of the family" and on their weekly visits they sow dis union and disoord and set the whole neighbotbood by the ears. A GOOD MONOPOLY. Those people of New Mexico who are disposed to find fault because many of the great railway corporations are "monopolies," do not stop to con sider tbe benefits that the consolida tion of railway interests bring. It cannot be denied that railway monopolies are the cause of very ob jectionable features, but tbe meritor ious ones should not be forgotten. It is net many years ago that a traveler making a journey of a few hundred miles had to "change oars" from one to a dozen times. The little roads had separate depots in every town and city, and to "change cars" meant an om nibus or other conveyance, and often no conveyance at all,, to reach the distant depot of the connecting road Trains were run with no reference the convenience or interest of throug passengers, ana time-tables were ar ranged to suit local travel, regardless of the leaving or arriving time at the termini, to say nothing about the stage connections. The trav eler over these one-horse roads invariably found when be arrived at tbe terminus of ono road be would either have to lie over from night until morn, or morn until night before the next train on the other road departed. Travel was one round annoyance, and to study out all tbe "fine points" in a trip of a thousand miles required a mathematical head Since these numerous small roads have been consolidated into large oorpora tions, all these annoyances have ceased A person can step aboard a train at Las Vegas and go into New York by changing cars only once at Kansas City, St. Louis or Chicago, and tbe transfer requires only a few steps Tbe traveler simply enters a palace coach and whirls along thousands of miles before he needs make a change A lady or little child can now travel with less difficulty from Las Vegas to thg Atlantio or to the Pacific than an experienced traveler formerly traveled a thousand miles. The publio would rather accept the "conditions" of the monopolies than to return to the an noyances of traveling as it was twenty years ago. Ihen if we had no rail way "monopolies" nearly half of us would not be in New Mexico to-day, and as we would rather die here than live in paradise, we have much to be thankful for.

None But Ayer's at the World's Pair. Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys tbe ex traordinary distinction of having been tbe only blood purifier allowed an ex hibit at tbe World's fair, Chicago. Manufacturers of other Sarsapanllas lought by every means to obtain a showing of their goods, but they were all turned away under the application of tbe rule forbidding the entry of patent medicines and nostrums. Tbe decision of the World's fair authorities n favor of Ayer's Sarsaparilla . was in Beet as follows: '(Ayer's Sarsaparilla Is not a patent medicine. It does not belong to the list of nostrnms. It is here on its merits." Stockholders' Meeting. A meeting of the stockholders of the Las Vegas Masonic building association will be held at tbe Masonlo Temple, In East Las Vegas, N.

Notbinf hurt it until the proverbial "last straw " is added to ita burden. The human digestive syutem is very much like a camel. It 1 really astonishing how much abuse it will stand. Sometime, however, something worse than usual will be eaten, and will go through the stomach into tbe bowels, and there it will stick that's constipation. Nine-tenths of all human sickness is due to constipation. Some of the simplest symptoms arc coated tongue and foul breath, dizziness, heartburn, flatulence, sallowness, distress after eating, headaches and lassitude. A little thing will cause constipation, and a little thing will relieve it. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are a cer tain cure for constipation. They are tiny, sugar-coated granules, mild and natural in their action. There is nothing injurious about them. Sold by druggists.

SOME TRUTHS ABOUT TEXAS. "The Optic's" El Paso Correspondent Is On Hand Again With a Timely 1 and Newsy Letter. To the Editor of The Optic. El Paso, Texas, April 21st, 1896 This Is San Jacinto day. Ilenoe tbe Lone Star slate flag, once solitary and alone, but for half a century safe In the bosom of the union, floats over the top of the court house to day. Texas seems to have more legal ho!, idays than any slate we ever lived in; and we have lived In a number ot tbem. But, then, this state eoj-iys a number of distinctions. One, that it was an independent commonwealth and experimented for ten years with autonomy, to be at last glad enough to be received into tbe open arms of Uncle Sam. Texas tugged at tbe coat tails of the aforesaid Uncle Sum until the aforesaid kind, old fellow took pity on the tec-year-old stripling and adopted him into his family. But, alas, fifteen years later, tbe young scape grace forgot all about tbe old gentle man's kindness, and kicked, with a dozen of tbe older boys, too, to be let out of tho family relation, and, in tbe lan guage of John 6. Saxe, who drew tbe moral from cards, "to go it alone." But to this the answer was, if you don't stay, "you'll get a lickin'," and so it had to be, before all of them could be pacified. But this was long ago. At an entertainment given, last night, by the publio schools, to raise money for the purchase ot books for tbe bigb school library, the history of Texas passed in review. This auditor learned this lesson: Almost all of its leaders, early settlers, patriots, statesmen and soldiers, were from the southern statis. Hence its thoughts, theories and tests of govern ment represented the cavalier and not the puritan, Virginia rather than Mas sachusetts. What wonder then, that when our southern brethren attempted the experiment to divide tbe union that Texas should go with them. But let it be said to ibeir honor, that whether tbe occasion be civic or religious, patriotic. or political, all classes, ages and con ditions abound in a hearty and spon taneous expression of love and loyalty, adherence and affection for tbe union as it is. At a recent large and enthusiastic gathering at Sao Antonio, where thous ands from all over Texas were gathered together on the occasion of tbe sixth annual Epworth League conference the speakers of this, as well as olher prominent southern states, expressed sentiments oi loyalty as tbev were proper in their addresses, discussing tbe great moral issues of the day, suob as. tbe sanctity of tbe Sabbath, the Epworth league and the infernal liquor traine, tbe great missionary movement and other important questions, that clearly showed an unbiased observer, whatever may have been the senli ments of this people in the pas', their present love of oountry cannot be questioned. There is another thing we observed The obdurately continued opinion re garding tbe character and quality of tbe lexas people, making no allowance for cbanges.ls unwarranted and unjust No people anywhere show acoording to tne same nunrner more apparent in telligenceor are better clad, better be baved or more appreciative of intel lectual feasts and flow of soul than this people I The writer was ready to take note of any idiosyncrasy or pecu liarity in this particular, but none presented itself. We did not go to scoff, and we bad no occasion tn. We found tbem alike any similar number of people that might gather among our better olass of rural and village and town population anywhere where float the stars and stripes. Ban Antonio is toe political mecca and contains the shrine of ' hero- worshippers in the world-renowned Alamo. Its history can be gotten from the text books, but tbe localisma.have to be gathered on tbe spot. Oae is to this eff -ot : When Col. Davy. Crookett drew a line in the centre of the fort nd last stronghold saying, whoever wants to stay with me, tight, bleed and die, step on my side of the line of the 170 or more; all stepped over but one. lhat one escaped to Nacog doches county eventually, but as be was making bis way thro' the double wall to tbe. north and then to the west before finally teaching in the end east lexas, they tell it, be should have said. that while making his escape his heart beat so loud, he was afraid tbe. Mexi. cans on the other side of the wall could bear it beat. There were three women in the sonth room fit we have tbe oompared directions right) The only survivor of tbe Alamo is one of these three, a Mexican woman, a hun dred and eleven years old, living at this time in San Antonio, A beautiful and perhaps the most populous city in Texas is San Antonio. Flowers, shrubs, trees, - everywhere. Warm in winter, hot in summer, bnt clad In verdure fair, tbe iarger part of tne year. It is this year tbe convention cwy. First the leugue conference, April 14tb to. 16 th. This week the battle of flowers and the Knights Templars' conclave. In June, 6th to 8th, the state endeavor convention. For all these the railroads bave made a five dollar round-trip rate to remotest points in tbe state, which meant for El Paso delegates less than two-fifths of a cent per miie, for it is 635 miles from here to San Actonio. The rail- roads lose nothing, but gain a great deal, bo does the public. A large military post, several rail, roads, some small nianufauiuilng inter ests, a great many health seekers dur ing the winter months and a fair amount of business produced by ad jacect agricultural and slock districts, make tbe city a bnstlini; centre of commerce and consequent activity. There Is nothing to be seen between hi Paso and there excopt the cactus, mesquite and toruello bushes and trees, with bere and there a little town and a big court bouse, Del Rio is tbe best town between the two allies. At Lacgtrv, whore Fiiz-ilmmons and Maher had tbeir minute and minnowy oontest, tbe fallowing sign is in sight from tbe car window: "loo cold beer and Is w west of the Pecos." As we needed neither, we went on and cense b. fore the patienoe of tbe reader fails tho Obskkvkb. Suffrage Convention. A Territorial mass meeting Is oalled by the National American woman sulXrsge aisoolatlon, to be held in Albuquerque, April 28th and 20th, for the purpose ot or ganising a New Mexioo suffrage associa tion. The question of woman suffrage Is ag gressively before all the people of the great west Tbe glorions example of Wyoming, where women have voted upon every ques tion that men bave for thirty years, bas answered every objection ot the opponent. 8be has demonstrated that none of tbe fancied ills that theorists declared must follow Ihe enfranchisement of women, have proved true In tbe actual experiment. Wyoming is to-day an unanswerable argument for tbe advantages of a govern ment that . knows no sex. The progressive spirit of Hew Mexico will not permit her to lag behind her neighbors in this line of march. Tbe time to act is now. We earnestly request all tbe friends of the cause to bs present at this mass meet ing and to participate in Us deliberations.
