Do you support home institutions or are you a knocker, and at every opportune time strike some one of the home concerns? You must take into consideration the fact that these concerns support you, if not directly they do in a way in directly, and it is your duty to ..stand by them. A man who is con tinually knocking is little better ' than an ingrate, and has but a little : spark of patriotism in him. The Santa Fe is making exten sive preparations to begin the work of constructing the new extension 'south from Canyon City to Lub bock, and already a trainload of material has been unloaded at Canyon City from which point the work will be commenced. The Santa Fe in submitting this proposi tion of an extension, did so in a straight business-like way and did not canvass one end of the coun try to the other after land grants and options on large bodies of land Thomas W. Dealey, one of the best known nepspaper men in Tex as, is dead, tor a quarter of a century Mr. Dealey was connected with the Galveston-Dallas News- He began his Newspaper career as efflco boy with the News in 1870, and in 1871 he was elected secre tary and treasurer of the company, which position he held until a short time ago, having resigned on ac count of failing health. He was a Knight Templar, a Shriner, and some years back was honored with the distinction held by few men in Texas, of receiving the 53d degree (Hon.) from the Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scot tish Rite for the Southern jurisdic tion of the United States.

A RousiNQ and enthusiastic meet ing of the citizens of Amarillo was held in the court house last Fridav night to consider matters of vital importance to the future, prosperity of this city. The proposition of the removal of the track of the Santa Fe between Panhandle City and Washburn, and the building from Panhandle City to Amarillo was discussed, but as the matter was submitted in an unofficial way the question was referred to the Amarillo Commercial Club for con sideration and action. This move on the part of the Santa Fe of course means the building and ex tension of the shops here and the division headquarters of the trans continental lines of the Santa Fe in Texas. This is a proposition that the citizens of Amarillo can not afford to pass up, and with a continuance of the enthusiasm as expressed at the Friday night meeting the Santa Fe's transconti nental trains will soon be pulling into Amarillo. Hod Cor, 5th & Grant St. OF CURRENT INTETEST. The Banner Stockman is advo cating the growing of sugar beets in Donley county. Several farmers will be asked to grow beets this year which will be tested for sugar next year and if found profitable a move will be started toward getting a sugar mill. In Potter county last year sev eral small patches of sugar beets were put in with good success and there is no doubt but that the beet can be raised with profit on sections of the plains. The Her ald has on exhibition in its office a sugar beet raised near this city weighing a fraction over 9 pounds. That should be evidence enough. A million trees'should be planted in the Panhandle this year and one- half of them should be planted in Amarillo.

This is indeed a timely sugges tion on the part of the Telegram and it is hoped that the people of the Panhandle will observe Arbor day by planting one tenth of the number of trees that should be planted during the present season. The reading public would not give a 6nap for a press without any snap about it. There are al ways some reforms in order, some public questions to discuss and to differ over, and, unlike men in cer tain other lines, newspaper men have never attempted or desired to pool all their issues and get to gether as so many sucking doves to say nothing while they saw wood. The News hopes that the time may never come when newspaper criticisms and controversies are abandoned, as competition and criticism have been given up for the benefits of monopoly in other lines. A non-partisan, undenomi national, non-assignable, independ ent, honest and courageous press is one of the essential forces of civilization and progress. News paper controversiee of the right sort are interesting, wholesome and generally beneficial. Dallas News, What is a paper without senti ment? Should the press stand idly by, as it were and allow ques tions of momentary importance to come before its readers and be act ed upon without comment or sug gestion? Should it allow graft and corruption in its midst to continue unobserved? The Her ald is non-partisan in its view up on matters pertaining to the inter est of its readers and will fearless ly uphold the rights of the people in giving publicity to matters of general interest. Potter county has 635 poll tax payers that paid prior to February. This indicates a population in the county of about 4500.

Slaughter, chairman of the com mittee on entertainment, is work ing hard in an effort to making it the most successful meeting in the history of the associaton.

The Anti-Race Suicide party is organ izing. It begins on the spot where Elijh Lovejoy, fighting the battle of liberty with his press and types, gave up his life to a Dro-slaverv mob in the year 1837. Mayor Ed mund Beall, of Alton', 111., has an nounced his candidacy for congress on the issue raised by President Roosevelt in his utterances direct ed against race suicide. Mr. Beall is going to run at the next election, and as he is a very popular man in Alton, he may be elected. This is his patform: "I have decided to introduce a bill to make men who refuse to accept the responsibilities of par entage leave the country. They have no place here, and they ought to know it. The race suicide idea is more important than it may seem. It is good subject for jest, but it is also serious. We want more babies of good American stock. The only way we can have Americans is to grow them we can't import them." This is the spirited platform, well put as to its language. But is it not a little too radical? Mr. Beall proposes the expulsion of all men who refuse to accept the responsi bilities of parenthood. This, pre sumably, includes childless hus bands as well as bachelors. It throws them all out of the coun try. It does not consider at all whether they might not be put to some use. There is always a chance for these reprobates while they are in the country. From sheer resent ment most bachelors would rather PHONE NO. 48. emigrate than marry under such duress. But left behind and made to toil for the community, the majority of them would probably change their minds. Besides, if all the bachelors and childless husbands were banished, would not that leave just so many women unmated forever? Are we to suppose that Mayor Beall's programme includes polygamous marriage for the surplus female population under such an arrange ment? In 1900 there were in the United States 2.228,269 bachelors above the age of 30. To banish these, to say nothing of all the other men who are not fathers, would leave a great number of women with no chance of marriage, except on the Mormon basis. If the vote of the women of the country is taken on this exiling proposition, it is a fair guess that it will not be carried. New York Mail. ANY MORE euref Itch. Eciema. Tetter.
