WHY THE TITLE "EMPEROR OF INDIA" WAS LEFT OUT OF PROCLAMATION OF ACCESSION Many readers of The Herald were perhaps surprised at the wordiug'of the proclamation by means of which the accession of the Prince of Wales to the throne under the title of King Edward VII was made known to the people of the realm. The omission of the familiar title, emperor of India, was conspicuous, and it is necessary to look back for a moment into the pages of history to find the reason for the omission. About 1875, Mr. Disraeli, then pre mier, began to engage in a consistent campaign to impress upon the English people the importance of British su premacy in the east, and of making that supremacy strikingly realistic, not only to the inhabitants of the imperial - possessions, but also to the great pow ers, especially Russia. Disraeli raised what has been called the Russian specter, the constant con trolling fear on the part of British statesmen and the British people gen erally of Russian aggression in Asia. The premier was not the sort of man to devote himself, like Gladstone, to measures for domestic improvement and redress of wrong. His personal in terest was elsewhere. He thought great thoughts, and aspired to do great -deeds, that should stand out in the pages of history in blazing characters. He dreamed of glorifying Britain in the east, and in the exploiting of India he saw the making of a dominant Asi atic power out of the British empire, For the first time Disraeli had the power to work out his designs. He was in the full confidence of the queen, and his personal and political follow ing was loyal almost to the point of worship. He was believed in many quarters to be in fact infallible, and for the time Gladstone sank far in the public estimation, while the Christian Jew became the popular idol. The effects of Disraeli's influence be gan to be heard and felt in the changed tone of popular expression Public speakers and great newspapers began to talk about the imperial des tinies of the nation, the mission of England, the imperial instinct, the duty of England in the east, the men ace of the Russian hordes, and Fuch things that were dear to the premier's heart. The conservatives began to laud their leader to the skies, as a new Moses, to lead the English people back into their heritage, as the dominant world power, from which proud place they had fallen. The lusty, careless, adventurous spirit that not long alter wards became known as Jingoism was in the air. Europe was to feel Eng land's might, and her foreign policy was to be vigorous and spirited. Thus much is said of the spirit of the people at that time because it is necessary to understand this In or der to appreciate the significance of the assumption of the title of empress of India by Victoria Disraeli s ministry at once began a series of sensational moves that were calculated to strike the popular chord and lead to still greater successes. By a bold and unprecedented stroke, the government bought the khedive's shares in the Suez canal for $20,000. 000, an act which brought forth the enthusiastic and all but universal com mendation of the country. The fact that the continental newspapers con demned the act only served to stimu late the popular excitement, and Dis raeli's triumph was for the time com plete. The premier encouraged tho be lief that the purchase was only the first step in a great plan for tho ex tension of England's empire in the east and the making impregnable of her imperial strongholds. The government sprang the notion of a South Airican confederation as part of the empire, and sent an emissary to further the plan. The Prince of Wales was sent to India on a special mission, to bind India closer to England and the empire, a:vl to gain information among the people that would lead to grand reforms in administration. More power was given to the home govern ment in dealing with India, and other measures for the centralization of the imperial government were adopted. The time was ripe for another sen sation. Disraeli-had won Victoria com pleteiy over to his imperial designs, and she permitted herself to be drawn into an arrangement that was at the time aad has ever been unpopular with the English people. The queen was to have a new title, in order still further to carry out Disraeli's plans. While the queen in her speech at the beginning of the session of 1876 intimated that a change of some sort was about to take place, it was only after repeated questions that the pre mier would consent to announce that the queen's title would thereafter have added to it the appellation, ''empress of India." Immediately the disapprov al of the people, and of the opposition in parliament was shown in no uncer tain manner. The addition was felt to be superfluous and tawdry, to add noth ing to the dignity of the sovereign. and to take away something of that simplicity that had always been dear to the people. The innovation was thought to be a vulgar' concession to the irresponsible demand of a . loud mouthed but far from representative portion of the people, and one not in keeping with the traditional dignity of the crown. So strong was the opposition that the government felt it desirable to make some concessions. They embod ied in the act authorizing the assump tion by the queen of the new tiile. a provision that it should not be used in the United Kingdom. This accounts for the fact that the title was left out of the proclamation of the accession of King Edward VII. as published in yes terday's Herald. The title is properly and officially used only in India, al though permissible in the colonies. Thus we find that under the provis ions of the act. the queen of the Uni ted Kingdom of Great Britain and Ire land, by proclamation at Delhi, before the princes and high dignitaries of India, on January 1, 1877, assumed the additional title of empress of Inriia. Doubtless King Edward VII will "as- Bume the title in the same manner, by proclamation, in India, under the here prominent enough and popular enough to command great weight in the convention at Fort Worth next month. They will work their hardest to get the convention to come here. and they know how to do the business. They only want the authority of the chamber of commerce, the carnival as sociation, and the citizens generally to back them up, and they will go to Fort Worth with something in their pockets that will make the failure of their mis sion impossible. , There is no time to be lost. Let the chamber of commerce, through the board of directors, act at once, and give El Paso's delegates authority to go af ter the convention. They will do the rest. Rumors' that Professor Garner, the monkey talk man, was dangerously ill and in distress in Africa have been denied.

There is no reason in the world why El Paso should not have the next an nual convention of the Texas Live Stock association. This year the asso ciation meets at Fort Worth about a month from this date. The associa tion has never met farther west than that, notwithstanding that the stock interests of the state are more closely bound up with this section than with the east. Cattlemen who have been talked to upon the subject by Herald represent atives invariably express it as their opinion that the time is ripe for the convention to come to El Paso. We have seen something of the interest such a meeting would arouse in this vicinity, by our experience with the thoroughbred exhibit at the Carnival. There was no feature more produc tive of lasting good to this city than that. If the state convention could be made to coincide in date with the next carnival, it would be the best card El Paso could put out j The cattle men want to come here. There are men in the cattle business From the San Francisco Call. The reports from the livestock con vention at Salt Lake City seem to show that the sheep men are in the saddle and the cattle men are on the run. It is a curious illustration of the tim idity of fixed investments. Nearl ev ery cattle man In the west, wnether a large or small herdsman, is a land owner. He has ranch lands and head quarters buildings and is a taxpayer. The flock-masters, on the other hand. are rarely land-owners. They have the daring and independence of no mads. They drive their flocks at will where they please, frequently in one year making from 500 to 1000 miles, feeding and fattening their sheep as they go, and leaving the range behind them bare and dusty. Recently a flock master in Wyoming, who had just sold out his flock of 140,000 sheep, boasted that he had made a great fortune in sheep and yet had never owned nor paid taxes on more than fifteen acres of land! His pasture cost him nothing, for he grazed on the public domain and .paid the government nothing for the feed that had made his great fortune. These aggressive shepherds have dis covered that they can drive the rattle off the range, for sheep will feed where cattle have been, but cattle will not feed where sheep have been. So when a sheep man opposes leasing the range and talks highly about the need of a free range open to all he means a range from which he has the power to exclude cattle, monopolizing it for himself. These brave "and enterpris ing nomads go further than this, for they propose at Salt Lake to demand a higher tariff and compel a federal in spection of manufactured goods, tag ging every bolt of fabric to show of what it is made. They demand also that all forest reserves be thrown open to sheep. We really hope that they will not demand an inspecting officer to overhaul us all on the street and strip us to see if we have woolen under clothing, with the power to imprison us for failure to wear wool from fheep that never cost a dollar for their feed. While these virile nomads are ask ing for what they want, and getting it, the timid cattle men are in dis agreement among themselves, and while they quarrel and higgle the sheep men are crowding them off the range. With free feed and a high wool tariff and disappearance of range cattle, the profits of sheep-growing rise, and so does the price of clothing and the price of meat The consumers of both are the people who own the public do main. Perhaps they may soon demand that the shepherds pay them some thing for the use and destruction of their property. Now that the carnival is over and the business men of the city are about to get their affairs back into a normal state, the question is. "What will we do next?" The Herald has endeavored to learn from those most interested and those who contributed most liberally toward the carnival just closed, what they think of having another like affair. It seems to be the opinion of every one that the carnival was a success beyond all hopes, and a financial success to the city beyond the imagination of any one. The answer frcm every one seen is: Have another carnival and begin on it now. The popular idea is to have the com mittee begin at once to organize a permanent association and prepare in advance for something greater and grander than the show just closed and make it more than ever an internation al affair. To begin now will bo to avoid the delay and annoyance of or ganizing again, which always brings up the question, whether or not it can bo done. El Paso has clearly shown that with money and time as good an entertainment can be had here as can be given in any city in the country, and the liberal way in which the citi zens contributed their time and money to the carnival ju&t closed is sufficient evidence that nothing but success can crown their efforts. The association is winding up its af fairs with cash I nthe treasury. The amount is little it is true, but the question was in the beginning, where the money for actual expenses was to come from. The association now has about $1,500 in the treasury. Many expense bills have been paid that could have been avoided had the committee known the people better, and in the future the same attractions can be se cured for less money. A Herald reporter called on most of the larger contributors this morning and every one was well satisfied with the results of the trouble and expense and every one said he had made ten dollars to every one ho had Invested in the carnival fund. The conditions could not be more encouraging and not a man in the city, so far as could be learned today, will refuse to double the amount lie subscribed this time. H is unanimously agreed that the re sult of the caruival will be felt in bus iness circles here for weeks to come, besides the permanent results from the creation of the miners' association and the cattle exhibitions. The executive committee of the association meets to night to make a report for publication.
