Whitehead, the director uf the chartered bank of India. Aus tralia and China at Hong Kong, who was here Saturday on his way west from Mexico had been in that country for the purpose of making inquiries re garding the supply of Mexican dollars for Asia in the future. After the pres ent troubles in Asia are settled it is believed that there will be an expan sion of trade, for which more silver money will be required. It will be remembered that in the ar ticle concerning Mr. Whitehead's visit here iC was said that he had spent eight lays in Washington. While there he was in communication with the gov ernment departments and . several or the cabinet . regarding the currency questions and proposals from several" quarters to introduce the gold stand ards in the Philippines. Mr. White head said he was also in conference with President McKinley and that at the meeting of congress next Decem 1er the proposed changes regarding the Philippine islands will come up for consideration.

"I want to say to you gentlemen." remarked the colonel, "that my jour ney south has been one of he most surprising as wel las gratifying exper iences of my life. It has been a con tinuous object lesson. Quite a number of years ago I made a similar irip. From the moment I entered the south om Gtntru I met with a series of pic tures that were to me exceedingly de pressing. The country seemea aeso lated. Homes that were prententious in (.iva anil character were in a state of last decay for want of a little paint and some attention: tr.e neias iuii 01 weeus and lng grass, evidenced a continued state of neglect, fences were down in all direct ions, and I he people I en countered seemed to be in entire sym pathy and keeping with the general air of apathy and neglect. "This was noticeaoie an ine way Wn tn Npu- Orleans, but When I struck Texas this impression became almost a nightmare. There seemed to be absolutely no life or activity. The limitless prairies were bleak ana Dar ren and the few cattle to be seen from rod tn ha half dead from ennut or the want of something to eat. . "The climax came wnen i reacnea ci Paso. My first thought when I entered the town and the last when I left it was what could have induced man or any set of men to found a dwelling place in such a spot. Nature certainly had not turned her smiles in this di rection and there really seemed no iruHoal lMuin for its existence. In short, it was to me the jumping off spot of the world. "I returned east as quickly as my business would permit and these im nroeicinn I had received orobably had much to do in deterring me from mak inir tho ti-in npnin until now. The ex periences of this present trip have been nf a totally different character. The contrast, between .the two pictures is tho difference neiween ugni ana snuu- ow. In passing' througn tne souiuern ctnioa thia ttmo I saw on every side the evidences of enterprise, thrift, and in dustry, in the iron ana steel inanuiac- tnrca nf Alabama, in the cotton mills of the Carolinas. in the ri"e and sugar plantations-of Louisiana, and the beau ty of the homes and the weaitn or tne fields. "Mr trip through Texas has been a revelation. The waste of the wilder ness has been .nade to blossom as the rose, and cities have sprung up full oi lite and vigor that could only b? pro rinoi1 hv tho intelligence and genius of the American people. Among these cities EI Paso stands preeminent. It is to me typical of what can be pro duc?d by the foresight, the ingenuity, and the brain of our people.

He Pays that Dr. Boyd Is Trying to Get a Couple of Milliors Out of the Uni ted States Government. Max Welier. after an absence of over r year spent in Germany and on the ontinent. returned to El Paso last night. He appears to be In splendid health and stated to a Herald report er that hfs trip had been a thoroughly enjoyable one. It is well known that Mr. Weber has greatly interested himself in the mat ter of the international dam both by his personal efforts and with his mon ey. He has appeared before the re spective committees of the house and senate in Washington that have the matter in charge and has laid before those bodies the local conditions sur rounding El Paso and Juarez. Speaking on the subject this morn ing, he said: "I made two trips to Washington on this matter and spent two weeks there. The senate committee made a most favorable report recommending the passage of the bill as it was intro duced by Senator Culberson. In the house the chairman of foreign affairs appointed a sub-committee and this committee had the entire proceedings printed. At the close of the session of congress, of this sub-committee con sisting of three members, two were in favor of reporting the bill as it was in troduced by Congressman Stephens and the other made some reservation es to the flood waters for New Mexico. If was too late for the entire commit tee to report a bill to the senate, but there Is no doubt whatever that the bill will pass during the next con gress. "It Is not the people of New Mexico that we should antagonize. It is Tlr. Boyd, who states frankly that he-is the Elephant Butte company. He has made his headquarters in Washington and is bluffing the American govern ment for an indemnity of $2,000,000. or. an an alternative proposition, a sub sidy of $125,000 a year for 20 years."
