Interest has already been aroused in
the country tributary to El Paso in the
project for a mining exposition here.
The exhibit for which Major Davis
will work under the direction of the
chamber of commerce) is but the
nucleus of a great exposition that will
almost certainly materialize here with
in the next two years. The "Monte
zuma Palace" idea has taken hold
readily, and it only needs a determined
effort on the part of our people to make
such a project successful.
It is likely that aid can be obtained
from the territories of New Mexico
and Arizona unofficially, and the state
of Texas, the national government,and
the Mexican government officially. It
la an age of expositions, and the time
Is ripe for a grand demonstration of
the resources of the Great Southwest.
The plan should be considered in
connection with the coming Louisiana
Purchase exposition in St. Louis in
1903. El Paso ought to get together
before that time a magnificent exhibit
typical of her splendid resources, and
make arrangements to take it bodily
to St. Louis. There Is every prospect
that the St. Louis exposition will sur
pass any International fair ever held,
here or abroad, and it is time now that
we should realize the importance of
being properly represented there.
Id connection with Major Davis's
work in the mining country surround
ing El Paso he has been authorized to
urge the mining men and merchants
of the surrounding country to become
members of the El Paso chamber of
commerce. Certain it is that there is
no strength like that which comes
from cooperation, and El Paeo, being
so favorably situated with reference
to all natural and commercial facilities,
Is the logical center of tbe industrial
activity of the Great Southwest. There
thould ba the fullest cooperation be
tween tbe people of El Paso and those
of the surrounding country, included
in a four hundred mile circle.
This cooperation cannot be better
fostered than by meeting in con
ference in matters of mutual concern,
and having a common headquarters
for all our interests. Such an oppor
tunity is offered by the El Paso
chamber of commerce. All persons
whose interests are in any way linked
with those of El PaBO are invited to
become members of the El Paso cen
tral commercial body and share In its
duties and privileges. Theofflcesof tbe
chamber will al ways be open to visit
ing members, and may be used as
headquarters while in El Paso. Thus
there will gradually be created a feel
ing of good fellowship and community
of Interests that cannot fail to bs
beneficial to all parties concerned.
ONE of the first questions, that should
be taken up by the chamber of 66m-
merce after the convention is over is
the matter of trotting a steam road
roller for the city. It is eeneraUy
conceded that tbe use of a heavy
roller in connection with frequent
sprinkling and Intelligent repair work
would solve many of our street pro
blems. The street surfacing we use
here is an ideal paving if properly
used, but it ought to be cared for. Tbe
steam roller would do wonders even
in the hands of a comparatively igno
rant man. It would be a fine invest
ment. The recent mayors' convention at
Waco spent most of its time in consid
ering municipal health problems. Dif
ferent methods of disposing of sewage
and garbage were discussed, and the
result must have been highly beneficial
to the progressive mayor in attend
ance. The mayor of Houston describ
ed the new sewer system and garbage
furnaces of that city, for which Im
provements $300,000 will be spent. The
mayor of San Antonio told of the na
tural garbage furnace three miles from
the city where all the city refuse is
burned. San Antonio has a regular
system of milk inspection and her or
dinance against promiscuous expeotor.
atlon is said to be rigidly enforced.
If there is a possibility of another
railroad coming into El Paso, the Ari
zona and New Mexico road or the
Roswell road, the question of terminal
facilities will before long be brought
up again. It is for the best good of the
railroads themselves that this matter
be carried to a settlement as Boon as
possible. Sooner or later El Paso must
have a union depot, and there will
never be any better time than the
present to plan for it. This is one mat
ter that the chamber of commerce
ought to take up as soon as possible.
There ought to be a general city
oleaning before the 'crowds come. All
unnecessary rubbish ought to becarted
away, and things epruced up. In the
residence portions of the city there is
much to be dene. Tbe fences and side
walks ought to be straightened up and
a little paint ueed where possible on
fences and sheds. It is cleanliness and
evidence of care rather than beauty
that give the best Impression to a visi
tor. Down town there is a great deal
to be done by the city, but bo far not a
stir has been made in this direction.
It is gratifying to note the way in
which the citizens are taking hold of
the electrical illumination idea. Noth
ing will do so much to raise tbe stand
ard of public celebrations here as will
a general participation by the business
men in this plan. The general effect
would indeed be magnificent if the
majority of the business men on El
Paso and San Antonio streets should
make night displays. Even a few
extra incandescent lights -along an
awning or in a window will help out,
and it will cost very little.
The chamber of commerce ought to
take up the matter of the fire insurance
rate in this city. Gross inequality is
frequently charged, and full investiga
tion ought to be made, to be followed
by vigorous protest if necessary. It
must be clear to any on that tbe num
ber of serious fires in this oity is remar
kably small, and we ought not be made
to pay for the frame houses and inef
ficient fire departments in other places.
If we remember rightly, tbe new
eleotrlo light company promised the
city bett9r lights than the old, that
is, brighter lights. It is true that the
new lights are steadier than the old
ones, but to the ordinary observer it
does not appear that they are any
brighter. Would it not be a good plan
for the city to have some tests made,
so as to see if the company is livlng-up
to its contract?
It is strange that some of our good
anti-saloon friends have never be
thought themselves to provide free
ice water along the streets of the city
as an effective antidote for the habit
of drinking intoxicating liquors in the
endeavor to quench thirst. It wouldn't
oosta great deal and its influence
would be most beneficent.
The news from China is most ex
asperating in its indeflniteness. There
has been no suggestion of a censor
ship, and yet it looks as if there
were a definite effort being made to
suppress'tbe news. It also looks as If
we have another professional fakir in
Hong Kong and one in Shanghai. We
will have to watch those fellows.
Roosevelt still flirts with the vice
presidency, and a whole lot of us hope
he will not let himself be beguiled
Into accepting the place. He is of
far greater service to his party where
he is, and his time will come in 1904.
It is too bad we have no exhibit at
that Milwaukee mining congress. If it
hadn't been for the inactivity of the
chamber of commerce authorities we
would have been represented.
The empress of China is so very
much mixed up in her mind that there
will probably be; a bargain sale of
yellow jackets and peacook feathers In
a few days.
A citizens' auditing committee
preferably in connection with the
chamber of commerce, would be tbe
most effective way to curb municipal

She was the fond mother of a fine
baby. But it was a crying baby. She
unclothed it
and looked for
pins. Nothing
was hurting it.
She looked to
the baby's
food. It was
sweet and
But the baby
still cried and
wailed. Then
she called the
doctor. He
examined the
child and said
" starvation."
"The child is crying for food." " But,"
said the mother, "it has all the food it
will take." "The question of starva
tion" replied the doctor, "is not how
much food is taken but how much is as
similated and goes to nourish the body."
Pain in the body is often only the out
cry of starvation. You eat enough but
the stomach is not doing its work, and
the nervous system is starving. Put the
stomach right and the pains will cease,
together with the uncomfortable conse
quences of the condition. There is no
medicine made which can equal Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in
the quickness of its action on the stom
ach. It cures diseases of the digestive
and nutritive system, increases the ac
tion of the blood-making glands, and
so induces a proper and perfect distri
bution of the necessary nourishment
to blood and bone, nerve and muscle
throughout the whole body. There is
no alcohol, opium or other narcotic con
tained in "Golden Medical Discovery."
" I wish to sav to the world that Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery has proved a great
blessing to me," writes Mrs. Ellen E. Bacon, of
Shutesbury, Franklin Co., Mass., "as I firmly
believe I should be in a very bad state now if I
had not taken it. Prior to September, 1897. 1 had
doctored for my stomach trouble for several
years, going through a course of treatment with
out any real benefit. In September, 1896, I had
very sick spells and grew worse ; could eat but
little. I commenced in September, 1897, to take
Dr. Pierce's medicine and in a short time I could
eat and work. I have gained twenty pounds in
two months."
