The Philadelphia Record prints a
spirited description of Texas and her
oil geysers: The state of Texas, which
came bounding into the union across
frontier lines, with the reserved right
to split itself up into four more states
of the size of Pennsylvania or New
York, has ever since been a portentious
and imposing member of the sister
hood. Measurably escaping the rav
age of the civil war, since that dis
astrous time the people of Texas seem
to have become newly impressed with
the imperial extent of their area and
opporunities. They are pushing to
the front especially in the development
of their agricultural possibilities. The
recent astonishing upheaval of subter
ranean wealth in the state wonderfully
rounds out and amplifies its natural
resources. The new petroleum wells
in Texas are rightly called "geysers."
They exceed in output the great wells
which were found in Pennsylvania for
ty years ago. If the oil shall turn out
to be of as fine quality for illuminat
ing purposes as is the Pennsylvania
product it will command top prices in
the market. In any event the Texans
now have their own fuel supply, which
will enable them to cheaply convert
their abounding raw material into fin
ished products and to carry and fetch
on land and water at a low cost. If
there be anything more the Texans
need in the way of natural resources
to make them prosperous and happy it
will probably be added to them. Milk
and honey and corn and cotton and
wine and oil they do not lack. Which
is all very true and El Paso's earth
-wealth is still undeveloped. When the
Great Southwest really begins to btaow
the world what is has and can do. Tex
as will be the hub of the universe.
Stanford University is in an un
fortunate broil, Mrs. Stanford and
President Jordan are at swords' points
with a. large part of the faculty, stu

fessors criticised corporations in which
Mrs. Stanford is interested, and were
eventually asked to resign. Other

The one city in the United States
that neither has a vice crusade nor
stands in immediate need of one is
Washington, the national capital; and
it is the only city in the land that does
not govern itself, whose inhabitants
have not one word to say in how It
shall be taxed, improved, or regulated
That it is the most beautiful, the
cleanest, the happiest city in the land
is not deniable. It is governed by
three commissioners, appointed by the
president, two from civil life, one
from the army. It is the only city
where there is absolutely no local suff
rage, and it prospers greatly under its
arbitrary and un-American govern
merit. But then it is a pet child of
consrress and congress watches the
parks, the streets, the spelling books
in the schools, the aqueducts, the rail
way crossings, the bridges and every
thing else that is to the city's benefit
with the father! iest kind of protection
and care.
There are over sixty different types
of typewriter regularly on the" mar

board. It is not generally understood
what a boon the machine is to the
blind. It takes but a very little prac
tice for these afflicted people to be
come acquainted with the keyboard,
and the facility with which writing
can be carried on is the means of add
ing greatly to the opportunities for
pleasure and profit open to the blind.
Hop-skip-and-jump-Jdnson Smith"
as Thomas Bailey Aldrich called him
some years ago has somersaulted into
hornet's nest by declaring Uncle
Tom's Cabin the most vicious book
ever published and appalingly crimin
al literature. North and south both
have been jumping on him since for
his flippant and uncalled for attack on
Mrs. Stowe's book." The Herald could
have predicted some such business
from the artist and writer from the
first because of the way the man
wears hi3 name F. Hopkinscn Smith.
A man who parts his name in the mid
dle and make a pin cushion of the un
derneath of his coat lapel will always
bear watching. Hop's Colonel Cyar
ter is a good story and one to be grate
ful for, but if Smith were all right
he'd reform his name.
Now some temperance reformers In
Russia have set about the right way.
They believe that inasmuch as the
temptations to drink are so strong,
the only thing to do Is to set up equal
ly strong temptations not to drink.
They plan to open places of amuse
ment where guests may see a play and
have food and refreshments but not
intoxicants. If churches or other
agencies would open up a few amuse
ment balls where men could go of
nights, and get a good hot drink for a
fair price and have a biograph show
thrown in, the saloons would get a
vital thrust.
The thousands of prosperous, com
fortable Jews in America are hearing
with much distress of the unhappy
condition of men, women and children
or their faith in the Holy Land. The
suffering in Jerusalem is reported to
be horrible. Fevers, smallpox, diph
theria, and sickness of all sorts pre

Bishop Potter's suggestion that the
chief of police ought to be a military
man, and a man of high social standing
is good but not new. In New York
and in Washington at least, and prob
ably in other cities, military men have
served as chiefs of police. General
Fitzjohn Porter and General Andrews
have headed New York's police depart
ment in the years gone by. Police duty
is really a branch of military duty and
the police should be educated, equipped.

The Buffalo Pan American exhibi
tion buildings will be a great credit to
American architecture. The World's
Fair taught the country a tremendous
lesson in architecture, the benefits of
which are to be seen every day in the
increased dignity and beauty of public
and corporation buildings. Private
houses, except for the very rich, do
not show so much progress towards
better things, but the American is
emerging from the days when his ideas
of architecture were the standing joke
of nations.
Many New England settlements have
had to face the discouraging problems
of abandoned farms. The rocky hill
sides, so stubborn to yield their crops
unprofitable with the opening up
of the wide fertile farm regions of the
prairies, have been literally abandoned,
but there Is some hope that a use may
be found for them in the cultivation of
the Angora goat.
Minister Wu is said to have suggest
ed that the only complete cure for
racial differences in our country is
free intermarriage, black and white.
Whereupon he ran up against a preju
dice as big as the whole United States.
The Chinese do not have such repul
sion for marriages between different
races as ours and Wu had no idea of
how little possible his cure is.
Germany is changing the uniform of
her soldiers in accordance with the

cloth buttons underneath a flap,

The Large Hold That the British Have
Gained at Important Points in the
Celestial Empire.
Great Britian is father in China al
ready than any other power. The facts
are sensational when taken together.
Tbe British have most of the trade in
strong ports where they have put up
handsome buildings, and they have
most of the concessions. It is the ex
pectation that British capital will play
the largest part in the modernisation
of China. Frank G. Carpenter, who
has been in that part of the world for
some time, contributes to this week's
issue of the Saturday Evening Post
an article giving the most recent facts
of the situation. He says:
"The English are doing the most of
the foreign banking for China. They
get a percentage on the greater part of
the quarter of a billion dollars used
in its foreign trade. They have made
the Chinese government loans up to
the last four or five years; the first
two loans at the close of the Chinese
Japanese war, each amounting to -$80.-000,000,
having been placed with the
English and Germans. There is one
English bank in China which has de
posits of $80,000,000. It pays six per
cent on deposits, and. notwithstanding
this, declares big dividends. In a re
cent transaction it made a clear profit
of $2,000,000, and its stock is now two
hundred per cent above par.
There are, in round numbers, about
13.421 foreigners in China. I do not
include the soldiers called in by the
present war. Of these foreigners more
than 5000 are English, 2000 Americans,
1000 Germans, 900 French, 160 Danes,
400 Spanish. 150 Italians, 1000 Portu
guese and 1700 Japanese. More than
two-thirds of the Americans are mis
sionaries. A look at what the English are do
ing at he different ports will show
whether they are profitable or unprof
itable servants. They surely have not
wrapped their talent in a napkin and
buried it in the sand. They have made
the open ports modern European cities.
They are everywhere tne leaders in so
ciety, education and business."
It is Another Indication of the Growing
Importance of El Paso as a Gate
way. Linemen are today stringing a wire
into the Western Union Telegraph of
fice which fills a gap and completes a
2.500 mile copper circuit from Los An
geles to Chicago via El Paso, Dallas,
and St. Lou's, or the "all south" route,
and makes eleven overland circuits the
Western Union has between Chicago
and the Pacific coast.
The completion of this circuit gives
the local office additional facilities in
the shape of a quadruplex to Dallas,
two duplexes to Los Aangeles. a quad
rujlex to Denver, besides direct wire
service to San Antonio.
The improvement is but another in
dication of the importance of El Paso
as a gateway, north, east, south and
