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

are amply able to maintain state govern

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

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

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

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

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
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

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

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.

A Territorial mass meeting Is oalled by

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.
