In this respect it will be like the government schools of West Point and Annapolis. Following the analogy, the members of the school will have to maintain a very high standard or lose their scholarship. The plan is one suggesting limitless possibilities of good to the American Youth. There i.s a tinge of romance in it. that makes it a fascinating subject for discussion. If Carnegie carries out this magnificent plan for the truest ed ucation of American boys and Amer ican men the offering of limitless op portunity and the teaching of ways to make use of the opportunity, which two together make up the essence of ed ucation he will set an example for American rich men that will never die, and the Father of the Trusts will be hailed as a liberator of the race in the ages to come.

The proposed establishment, by An drew Carnegie of a technical school on a stupendous scale is an event of im mense importance to this country. In the old world the governments have so called technical schools for the educa tion of the hands of men, the training of skilled labor first, and in addition the training of men in commercial pur suits, especially with regard to foreign commerce. In this country we have nothing of the sort except the scien tine and technical courses of the col leges, Lehigh. Technology, Stevens, Cornell. Van Rensselaer, Worcester, Michigan, and some others. For the most part these schools, while well es tablished and well equipped as such things go in this country, have rarely an investment of more than a million or two in the technological departments, and have nothing corresponding to an endowment, unless it be of a professor ship or two, and a few scholarships. Under this proposed plan of Carne gie's, the investment would be practi cally unlimited. Twenty-five million dollars is stated as the original foun dation. But Carnegie has long dis cussed this thing and thought his plans over, and his closest friends know that this scheme has been the nearest to his heart for years. If twenty-five million dollars will not accom plish what he wants to do. be wilt make It thirty or forty. about mining, and manufacturing, es ped technical school in which bright and ambitious young men mgy be taught anything there is to know his school would have to do with the pecially in those branches in which metals and minerals play the c hief pari. For instance, it is not his intention to teac h the textile arts, paper making, or wood working as such, while of course his school would have to do the inak making of the machinery for these arts, and incidentally the arts themselves would have to come in for attention. But his idea is that of Machinery. Carnegie has caught the spirit of the twentieth century. He has heard the God Of the Machine calling to man. and his millions will be devoted to the development of the world's latent re sources through the development of Machnery. the creation of machinery to make more machines. In connection with this enormous scheme, his school will be endowed so heavily that the expenses and cost of carrying on the work win be met out of the regular income, and the pupils will The futility of so many of the spas modic crusades against gambling and other evils lies in the carelessness with which cases are prosecuted in the courts, and the carelessness with which the crusades are allowed to lapse after the first re buff. The papers are full these days of allusions to attempts that are being made here and there to purify local conditions. There is the record of a sa loon smashed, a raid on a gambling house, a case in court. The case is gen erally dismissed on some technicality, and the reformers lose heart. Yet these very technicalities are of ten safeguards against infringements upon personal liberty, and judges are bound to take them into account in order to carry out the ends of justice. In New Orleans, for Instance, a month or so ago. the police, at the instance of some good people, made a raid on a certain gambling house. They caught up a lot of hangers on. while the real offenders seem to have escaped. In the lower court the men were con victed for aiding and abetting in the commission of a misdemeanor, but when the appellate judge got hold of the case he discharged the prisoners on the ground that no evidence was in troduced to prove that the men arrest ed were actually gambling at any time, and no one of the policemen could swear that the prisoners were engag ed in any game. Under the circum stances there was only one thing for the judge to do, and he reversed the finding of the lower court, with the remark that, the mere presence of any one when a law is being violated does not necessarily imply guilt, and the burden of proof is on the state to show the guilt of the accused. Now it is to be expected that the reformers of New Orleans will cry out against the courts as corrupt, and lose heart in their crusade, when if they used a little more of the hard sense, the keenness that is employed by the forces of evil with so much success, they would ac complish more and they would not be so down on the rest of the human family and soured on human nature generally. In the contest of sharpness, enthusiasm, and efficient organization. the evil forces are almost always su perior to the good. o A certain section of the people, us ually the incapables and the irresnon- sibles, are fond of denouncing the great aggregations of capital and pointing out how they keep back progress. As a matter of fact, taking the railroads as examples and they are the most powerful aggregations of capital in ex ist.ence combination has in every case brought about betterments and devel opment, instead of checking forward movement, as some people aver. The New York Central owns the lines that formerly were in direct competition. Its business is uniform and heavy, and the roads under the Central manage ment are so necessary to the people that the road might be allowed to de teriorate or become more or less obso lete and the people would have to stand it just the same. But instead of declar ing fabulous dividends ancl grinding down the poor people, the road will within the next year or two spend a couple of millions for new equipment. ancl spend from seven to ten million dollars in improving the roadways, double tracking all the lines, building nw spurs, anil rebuilding bridges. The bridge item alone will cost $2,000,000. How would it be possible for anything less than such a great concern as this to spend $10,000,000 in a year on bet terments? And a pertinent question would the public, the government do it. if it owned the roads? Would the public get such good work and mater ial out of the expenditure, and would the concern be so economically ad ministered? Common sense and exper ience say no. Ttie wean spoi. If yoti are sitting in a restaurant where waitresses are in attendance, you will note now and again some young woman put her hand to her back, and straighten herself up. while her lips are tightened as if by pain. It's backache. Yet all day long she must be on her fect, lifting, carrying, hurrying. That weak spot, the 1ack, can lie made strong by the use of Doctor Tierce's I-'avnrite Prescription.

I J wAT A few weeks ago The Herald pro posed that the present water company take up In earnest the project of sup plying water from the mesa for do mestic use. It was then proposed that there be one service of distribution with two sources of supply, and thai the river water be used for coarser pur poses, as street sprinkling ancl irriga tion, while the mesa water, pumped Into the mains at certain hours of the day. would be used for domestic pur poses. It would not hurt if the two kinds of water were often mixed. It would be that much dilution for the highly spiced river water. Certain it is that this water problem is as great as any we have to face in this city during the next five years. The lack of fine water keeps people away from the city, and the lack of cheap water makes it impossible to have a pretty city. El Paso needs both very badly, and there does not seem to be any reason why we bhould net have some of each, the fine water not so cheap, and the cheap water not so fine. o ' Venezuela is making a fool of her self in stirring up feeling against the United States. There is no other coun try in the world that ever has taken up Venezuela's quarrels, or ever would do so. except the United States. There seems to be no reason now to ask for the recall of Minister Loorais except a cheap desire for notoriety on the part of the government. A dozen years ago France's minister was sent out of the country under similar circumstances, and ever since Venezuela has been try-, ing to get on good terms with France and France has resolutely refused to reopen diplomatic relations. Vene zuela would quickly find that to lose the support and friendship of the Uni ted States would be the most serious calamity she has suffered since Spain left her P. P. C. card.X o Today The Herald prints the third and last installment of another of the reports of reconnaissances in the Great Southwest. There are more coming. and those to come are by far the most interesting. One point of special in terest with regard to the one just now closed is the fact that it took forty-six days to make the trip that is now ac complished in just twenty-four hours. The table at the end of the report gives every water hole and camping place on the road from San Antonio to El Paso. The side light shed on the history of the time by this record is a valuable one. o The idea of local politics today is to gain time. Both sides hesitate to spring candidates and prolong the campaign. The Old Man is afraid of public criti cism, and wants to put it off until the last few days of the campaign, if he has got to take it. The outlook now is that he will decline to accept the responsi bilities of office, while he will exercise most of its duties and distribute its patronage, receive reports of employes. and dictate measures and means, as heretofore. He will likely elect a man that he can trust to do his bidding. while making a show of independence. o It is an ill wind that blows nohody any good. The fogs and frosts that have been loc king up New York harbor have made fish hard to get to market: which, taken with the fact that the enten season is on. raises the price of the finny things to a point that causes the man who has fish to sell to chuckle. o Hear the lion roar.
