THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR The famous Danish poet,Holger Drachmann, spent several months in America? traveling for pleasure and in formation. Upon his return home he published his impressions of America In the Danish papers. He told the re porters over there that it was very much to the credit of the Americans that they had discovered that "money is life; poverty is death." He declared "a ridiculous affectation" the European pretense that "money should not be the means of a man's ambition." He affirmed that educated Europeans were utterly misguided by their "nice little primers of culture and morals' which taught them "to look at the Yankees as a lot of money-mad egotists without ; 'feeling, sentiment, and that fine brand of sentimentality which distinguishes the highly developed European gentle man." Drachmann sees that Americans understand that money is power, and are not ashamed of the fact do not try to hide it under false pretenses, af ter the European mode. He rejoices, for one, that in America this frankness exists. For power is what men strive for, and why should they not strive after money, which gives power? He finds that this American attitude makes for manliness. Drachmann also asserts that tne American millionaire appreciates bet ter than the European noble the re sponsibilities of his power. "In Amer ica," he says, "in the heights of the enormously rich, a stupendous work is constantly going on, branching out into active participation in everything pertaining to public life and progress, inspired by an ever-active interest in the advancement of mankind. The sort of luxurious laziness affected by our European aristocracy is compara tively unknown in America." The American idea is that every man able to work shall do so. It is duty to get rich if he can, because wealth means power to do good. Weak-spined and oy ercultuied Americans have tried to convince the American people that their ideas about wealth are all wrong that the European cant which tries to ignore money as a legitimate source of power is a higher and nobler con ception. It is refreshing to find a European observer, not a manufactur er or financier, but a poet of the first rank, who comprehends, and therefore applauds, the genuine American atti tude toward wealth. The total number of sheep in the United States in 1900, as ascertained by the department of agriculture, was 41 883.065. an increase of about 1,700.000 over the previous year. On January 1 1885. there were over 50,000,000 sheep in the United States, the number de clining until 1898. when there were 37,657,000. The total value of flocks on January 1, 1885. was $108,000,000. in round numbers. The value of docks on January 1, 1900, was $122,666,000. According to the table of average val ues, each sheep was worth $2.93 1900. which was the highest valuation recorded in twenty years. The official estimates of the wool clip by the national association of wool manufacturers was 288,630,621 pounds, an increase of more than 15, 000,000 pounds over the clip of 1899 The average weight of fleeces was 6.46 pounds. The record of the wool trade of 1900 was the worst since 1896. This is due to a number of causes, some of which were the increases in foreign flocks, the war in South Africa, and the trouble in China. Boston Is the great local wool mark' et of the United States, and the aggre gate receipts in that city during the year were 381.440 bales of domestic and 146,818 bales of foreign wool against 705,592 bales of domestic and 101.242 bales of foreign wool during the year 1899. The total sales for the year in that city were 136.651,600 pounds of domestic and 20,213.500 pounds of for eign wool, a total of 156.868,400 pounds. This was a decline from the previous year of nearly 200.000.000 pounds. The total supply of domestic wool ou Jan uary 1, 1901, unsold in the United States was 204,345,500 pounds, against 123,348,500 pounds on January 1, 1900. The supply of foreign wool on the first' named date was 29,483,500 pounds, in comparison with 25,265,000 pounds for the first of January the previous year. Notwithstanding the fact that the year 1900 was so disastrous, and in spite of the huge stocks that are in tight. it is confidently expected that the year 1901 will be a much better period for the wool trade than the twelve months of 1900. The statistics show that in almost every other year there has been a reaction. During December, 1900, the markets showed a slight advance in prices. Agamemnon was fortunate in having a Homer to send his fame ringing in to distant time, and Victoria that Ten nyson lived to embalm her virtues in the immortal numbers of a song. The pomp and pageantry of royalty is for gotten, and the very tombs of kings mold and crumble with the obscurity into which they pass. Centuries change them to a mere cipher in the chronol ogy of the world. How many kings has Shakespeare rescued from an age-stain ed sheet of unread and forgotten his tory? How many Agamemnons are unknown, unhonored, and unsung be cause there was no Homer with a mes sage to deliver to the remotest pos terity? When Victoria, ages hence, is forgotten for the material triumphs of her great reign, she will live still in the words of Tennyson: Her court was pure; her life serene; God gave her peace; her land reposed A thousand claims to reverence closed In her as Mother, Wife, and Queen. o That good sometimes comes from misfortune is shown in the better Anglo-American feeling that Is a conse quence of the queen's death. The graceful expressions of condolence and the sincere sorrow of the American people on the occasion of the queen's demise struck a chord of appreciation in the British heart that will vibrate for many a day. Speaking of foreign tributes to Victoria the London Times says: "None of these will be more warmly welcomed and Appreciated than the spontaneous tributes from the Uni ted States. That pause in the busy life of New York and that turning of men's minds to solemn thoughts befitting the presence of death will be regarded by English people as a very emphatic and very precious evidence of com munity of thought and feeling upon what is fundamental in the character and conduct of nations." However, no one questions the patriot ism of the members of the board. o Mr. Bryan is mistaken about there being any "Common people" in this country in the sense that there is a class not quite as good as some oth ers. In America every man is a com mon man. and every woman is a trump. The people of this town would be glad if Dr. Blunt would exercise his quarantine authority on the dogs that manage to get into the opera I.ouse and bark at the fiddlers. o The Duke of York has German measles. This was probably intended at a delicate compliment to Emperor William on the occasion of his visit to England. When we consider that the people of the Philippines speak one hundred and twenty languages there Is no won der they are hard to understand. With 55.000 paid up subscribers after the second issue of the "Commoner" Mr. Bryan is assured of a "full dinner pail." o Governor Nash, of Ohio, showed his teeth to the sluggers. ' He seems bent upon Rublin them out. The ships that Jason sailed were not subsidized but then Jason didn't find the fleece. o The decapitation of Boxers in China is one way of heading off future trouble. o Mrs. Nation ought to make the for tune of the moving picture people. o WORN OUT TROOPS FORT BLISS MAY GET A REGIMENT En Trie summer Of life a woman may find herself fading and failing.

It is entirely probable that the war department will send one or two regi ments of the worn out soldiers, now returning from the Philippines, to El Paso to recuperate. This information is gleaned from the mere fact that the department has made lnauiries about several nlaces in this section as health resorts but more from the fact that the post here is now almost vacant and bad sufficient ca pacity to accommodate a full regiment. There are several regiments now on the way to the states from the Philip pines sick and worn out. They will be placed in the best climates that they may recover as soon as possible and re turn to the Orient for service. San Francisco is already crowded with troops and San Antonio is short on ac commodations and no other small city in the country can furnish room and buildings for a large body of men. El Paso has all that the department could desire in the way of climate as well as accommodations and the probabilities are that one if not two regiments will be sent here to spend the winter. At Fort Bliss the water is perfectly pure, the air clear and pure and the post as comfortable as any in the coun try. Major Loughborough, now com manding the post was asked about the accommodations yesterday and stated that the post could take care of a regi ment with perfect ease. Nothing will be known of where the troops will be sent until they reach San Francisco which will be next week, but it is con fidently believed that at least one regi ment will be sent here. WONDERFUL TALENT. Displayed By Miss Jackson and Her Capable Company. Among the soldiers returning from the Philippins are many men broken in health, and in need of rest and the beneficient effects of a good clin.ate. The suggestion to colonize them at Ft. Bliss is so logical that it is strange something of the kind has not been done before this time. El Paso's climate is widely known; its merits are cer tainly recognized by the war dciart ment. Giving our worn out soiOiers an opportunity to regain their health at Fort Bliss is performing a humane duty. The air of this vicinity will re store them. Though in favor of flying the flag from the city schools the school board found it would cost $300 per-annum, and on that account decided for the present against the proposition. While their decision is to be regretted, it is hoped that something may yet be done. A most excellent musical perform ance was given last night at Myar opera house by Miss Jackson and her company. The audience was large and appreci ative, and generous with applause throughout the evening's entertainment. Every one was delighted with the wonderful executions on the violin; with the finished, artistic touch that characterized each selection. Miss Jackson's manner was also especially pleasing. She seemed to pour out her soul with the notes of the instrument. and to breathe life and poetry into each melody. Whether gay or sad there was pathos and expression In her ren ditions. In fact Miss Jackson played so well that better music could not be expected. After the second selection sne was and Eyes Gaynor b. "Ouvre tres yeux blens" Meesener c.
