A New York Success. Since i-hildhood it has been borne upon us that New York (and possibly Boston) wau to oe regarded as the center of literary and artistic culture in the ' Western hemisphere. Vitn its great libraries, its art galleries, its musical or ganizations and theaters, it was the seat of learning and the arts, and naturally we have always inferrpd that a people so surrounded and environed typified the highest culture. But as time goes on we occasionally get a jolt that prompts us to modify our opinion of the Knickerbockers. We are beginning to look askance at their claims for being the "whol-j works." And the possession of great libraries and art galleries doesn't necessarily mean that the people are either literary or artistic. What prompts this digression is the fact that the other day we stumbled across a song, lately published in the metropolis, which has scored a big hit at the New York and Columb'n theaters, and which has opened our mind as to the literary and musical capacity of Manhat tan's population. The Words of the song run as follows: I've been all around this earth f Taking life for what It's worth, Doing, daring, doubting, dying, Living, laughing,' loving, lying, t Like a Romeo; Telling ev'ry girl I know; Best and worst one, she's the first one, Who has won my love; Until of late I've met my fata, A Yankee Doodle dove. CHORUS. ,.- I love a Yankee girl, You love a Yankee pearl, And her boodle, too; ' ' How I love to court her, But will you support her, That's a thing we nobles do, etc. There's more of it, but this is enough. And this is a New York success which means that the patrons of two of the big metropolitan play houses have stamped it with their approval. Why, it is the veriest drivel. The senti ment could be improved by the average captain of a canal barge, "while the construction is childish. A man who would write such hogwash and perpetrate it on an unsuspecting public ought to be sent to the asylum for fear he might break loose again. It's simply awful the silly drooling of a born idiot, "subject to nightmares. But don't forget for a moment that New York said it was quite the proper thing and New York's verdict goes. Mr. Bailey's Fight. As a result of the last fight in Texas over the re-election of United States Senator Bailey, it was resolved that the next contest over his seat should be settled by an appeal directly to the people. Mr. Bailey has still two years of his present term to serve, but already the fight against him is ; being renewed. And for the next two years the Lone Star state will be in the throes of as bitter a senatorial contest as has ever been witnessed there. Four or five years ago, as a part of the last Bailey contest in Texas, charges were made that Bailey was more or less directly in sympathy with the Waters-Pierce Oil company, doing busi ness in the state, and part of the Standard Oil group. These charges, although denied by Mr. Bailey and never proved, divided the Texas De mocracy into two hostile camps, one friendly to Bailey and the other unfriendly. Subse quently Bailey went before the people at the primaries, won out, and was returned to the senate. It now is evident that the contest against him is to be renewed, with the chief argument Bailey's attitude in favor of tariff du ties on raw materials. This attitude runs count er to the Bryan attitude in favor of free raw materials, and it is the expectation of Bailey's opponents that tariff agitation in the next con gress will bring that issue very prominently to the front and help them in their work of op position. The expectation is that Bryan' will participate in the campaign in Texas, making several speeches against Bailey. Bryan, by the way, was opposed to Bailey he last time, but to no purpose. In the camp of Bailey in Texas are many, of the strongest and most influential men in the Dei tocratic. party, but the state is divided on .tb.3 merits of free raw materials as opposed to a duty on those materials, and so it is difficult at this time to predict how much they will be able t.o do fcr bini in the coming contest. That was a pretty conclusive test made the other day when an officer of the artillery serv ice went up in an aeroplane, over one of our government military"" posts, and dropped aT bomb down on to the parade ground, which bomb duly exploded. The significant thing about the test is that the military man dropped1 the expolsive exactly where he intended to drop it, thus demonstrating that the man up in the air, seeking to do this sort of trick, can take pretty good aim, despite wind currents, etc. With this possible, it requires no violent ex ercise, of the imagination to picture the harm a nervy individual in a flying machine could do to an intrenched force below him, provided he possessed a job lot of high explosives. And he would have the game in his own hands. As this l.st the other day shows, he eould hit them win re and when he pleased, while he himself would make a most unsatisfactory target. The United States today is the third most populous nation in the world, China being first arnf Russia second. Germany, which for, a time showed a disposition to . compete with us in population, is dropping far behind, its birth rate is decreasing, and today it possesses 35 per cent less people than this country. We have considerably more than twice as many people as the United Kingdom, and are growing be tween three and four times as fast. We have two and a half times the population of France ; i we have as many people as three Italys, five Spains, or two Austro-IIungarian monarchies. Not only have we our increasing birth rate to take care of, but we receive about, a million im migrants a year from Europe. And a lot of the latter we could well afford to do without. : Gov, Johnson hands the railroads one in his special ; inesage to : the legislature advocating more power to the state railroad commission. As an instance of the inequality of rates, he points out that although Los Angeles . is but twenty-three miles from its. port at San Pedro, it costs from $17 to $20 a ton. to haul freight that distance the same rate for hauling freight to San Diego, 120 miles , distant. Thus Los Angeles loses the advantage its proximity to tidewater should give it. It certainly ought to be within the power of the commission to re adjust inequalities like this. Mrs. Stetson, one of the leaders of the Chris tian Science movement, is out irf a statement that Mrs. Eddy, who lately died, will return to life shortly, , We are not scoffers or any thing of the sort, but we will bet even money , that Mrs., Eddy doesn't do anything of the sort provided the death certificates of the doc- ; tors is worth anything. . The Inyo Independent, referring to the fact that a Dr. Doyle of 'Bishop had been, fined $25 for writing a prescription for whisky, says: "When he pleaded guilty he dealt a blow to the people of this valley that they will be a long time in recovering from." Has the good doctor made every man in the valley drunk t Those Frenchmen are awfully poor marks men. A crank yesterday fired two shots at Premier Briand, and a man standing near gets one of the bullets in his leg, . while the premier escaped altogether. The next fellow should try a brick he might have better results. Carrie Nation is down with nervous prostra tion. There is something like divine retribu tion about this. Carrie caused so many other people to have nervous prostration that it was really due her. Utah lias appropriated $200,000 for a state building at the Panama exposition. Nevada cannot afford to have one less pretentious. Don't slight your work because you think no one appreciates It. It Is the man . who conscien tiously, day after day, ' performs the task set him that sooner or later wins recognition. And re member that genius Itself, as Carlyle said, is only "the capacity for Infinite pains." There is no short and royal road to success. , A couple of the doctors at Bishop have been fined $25 apiece for writing prescriptions for fire water of the jag-producing variety It must be a dickens of a country where a man can't even get a drink by a physician's direction.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 18. Secret Service Operative Hazen returned yesterday from Yuma, where he ob tained evidence which he expects will send two men to the federal prison on charges of counterfeit ing. Yuma officials arrested Chas. White, cowboy and desperado, on suspicion last week, and immediate ly notified Hazen, who took charge of the case. Several Arizona towns have been flooded with spurious half dollars. Hazen procured a confession from M. C. Conway, whose arreBt he caused, which involved White and Leo Featherston. It" also revealed to the officer several caches of the counterfeit coins which had been made at Calexlco and Yuma. Feath erston has admitted he was desig nated to pass the coin. While he stoutly declared his innocence, he has served one term in the federal prison at Leavenworth. FORCED TO RESIGN. BUENOS AYRES, Jan. 18.
