TUESDAY, JUNE 12, 1906. PATRONIZE HOME INDUSTRIES . It sometimes happens that one thinks he can get more for his money abroad than he can at home, but this a mistake. The stocks of goods in Amarillo are large enough and competition is great enough to give the purchaser as much in quantity and quality for his money as any where else. The traveling retail salesmenjthat swoop down on the town every so often generally sell adulaerated trash. They know a certain percentage of the people 'are easily gulled and they look for that class to palm off cheap stuff at several times its value. They carry a line of goods that no home merchant will handle. They may have one genuine article that they will sell at cost to induce the pur chaser to take a half dozen spuri ous articles. It sometimes hap pens that a printing job is sent to Dallas or St. Louis under the im pression that there is an art and skill in the business there that can not be had at home. Amarillo has as highly paid and as competent printers, as modern and complete printing machinery as any place. A big foreign printing concern sometimes, to break the ice, will make a cost price on a small bill expecting to make it up on some other jcb, but the general run of prices at home as is as low and reasonable anywhere else. This being the case it should be kept in mind that the more of our trading we do with each other the better for all. It is true, some things ara cheap er in the East than at home. Among those things is interest on money. Yet it does not pav and it is not good policy to leave home to borrow money because the bene fit of doing business one with the other at home where our interests lie and where all are benefitted by the increase in business and build ing up the country more than compensates for the occasional bargain we think we see abroad. PAPERS PEOPLE READ. The IIhrald's interview of Opie Read on the single tax, by Mr. J. Iy. Caldwell, is copied in full by the Chicago Public, the "Journal of Fundamental Democracy," whose editor is Louis F.

If he had lived in our time his patience might have undergone a more try ing ordeal.

He has only served one term in the state senate instead of four, as stated in the Herald, and two terms in the lower house. There is no disposition in the Herald to do Senator Decker an injustice and we assure him and his friends that our political editor will not here after mix drinks and will hew to the line on political history. The state conventions show that Bryan will sweep the country for the democratic nomination in 1908. Roosevelt has stated that he will not accept the republican nomina tion for another term and the wise republicans say that he is the only man in their party that can defeat Bryan. Just what the republicans are going to do with the situation we willl be better prepared to say two years hence. Dick Bowman seems to be com ing down the home stretch for the legislature several lengths in the lead glancing back at the states man from Moore county, whom Richard recognizes as too supple to take any chances with. The Herald is installing its plant that will take care of a daily paper as fast as possible. Our Hoe Per fecting press will arrive this week and the linotype about the same time, unless there is some delay in shipment over which we have no control. It is our intention to start right and keep right after starting. We have an abiding faith in the Panhandle people standing ready to support a daily paper that will give them the news of the world from twelve to twenty-four hours earlier than they now get it.

The Rev". Doctor Hamlin's lec ture Sunday afternoon was a mast erly effort in behalf of a clean life and a clean city. If every voter in Amarillo could have heard him a realization of what the city is carry ing on north of the tracks would be so vivid and awaking in its na ture that christian and law abid ing citizens would think the stage of talking has passed and the time for action had arrived. He por trayed in impressive eloquence the duties of citizenship that seem to have become obsolete at least temporarily, in Amarillo. The laws for relief are plain in the state stat utes. Trie best and law abiding people are a3 preponderan in num bers as in any other place, then why is it thus? The answer is too busy, too busy! and what is every body's business is na-body's busi ness. Would it not be a good idea to take a day off and clean up?

When about seven years ago General Miles and W. R. Hearst told the country that it was being fed on embalmed meat Mr. Roosevelt was Vice-President. He has been president four year since and is just getting around to the subject. Why become radical with the packers now and force them to cut out at once cancerous cows, choleraed hogs, cats, dogs and rats? Thk candidates for governor seem to be doing a little hair pull ing in some prts of the state. About the only Nsue among them is who has done the most towards pulverizing the giant corporations that are menacing the common wealth. Everybody is against big corporations now. The people are going to take a seat on them for a while and see how it goes. So the candidates can all be set down as anti-monopolists and can safely turn their attention to some other matters of public concern. If one of the candidates would expose our antiquated revenue law and frame a provision not dictated by tax dodgers and that carried into effect the state consti tution the Herald would pitch in and help elect him.

In South and West Texas Judge Bell is easily the favorite and he developed strength in North Texas which makes hirri a formidable competitor there. He is undoubt edly the choice of the conservative and business elements and his re cord as attorney general has made him strong with all classes, but the race is yet to be run and the finish alone will positively show the posi tions of the contestants at the finish. San Antonio Express. The close of the contest will de velop the fact that Judge Bell is the choice of the people. There does not seem to be any doubt now on that score. A young lady has been "fired from a public school faculty in a North Texas county for requiring her pupils ,to recite the Lord's prayer. Strange why some teach ers are not discharged for real cause. Mineral Wells Index. The community that will dis charge a school teacher for open ing school with prayer is hard up for reason and evidently somewhat short on piety. In the not very remote past it was the custom to open all schools with prayer, but this is a progressive age, and the time may come when it will be the popular idea to open up with a dog fight Ft.

A gentle man named Paradise is there with a new plant and will establish a semi-weekly, while Mr. Boesen, of the Herald announces that he has bought a $10,000 perfecting press, lineotype machine and all the et ceteras pertaining to a modern and metropolitan morning newspaper, which will be out soon under the caption, "The Daily Panhandle." Mr. Boesen will likely make a suc cess of his venture. There is a constantly increasing demand for a Panhandle daily of the right kind, and with Dlenty of capital it will no doubt prove a success. Our best wishes are extended all concerned, but someone will undoubtedly fall hair to a nice mounment and a suitable epitaph sooner or later. Clarendon Banner Stockman.

The big ranches out in West Texas are being steadily cut up and sold in small bodies to the people who are flocking into that section in search of homes. The prediction is now being made that the time is near at hand when big ranches in that section of the state will be so rare as to almost consti tute a memory. Fort Worth Tele gram. The big ranches were the direct cause for the settlement of this section, but for years they have held it back. What holds good for this section is.'equally true of every ranching country, and it is a dead lead pipe cinch that no one is cry ing over the passing of big ranches. The Panhandle still has more than its share of big ranches, several million acres being tied up in only two or three, and it will be years before they pass entirely into the hands of the farmer. Even the owners of these collosal bodies of land are making every effort to dis pose of their holdings at the price they are worth. This however, is an undertaking of such magnitude that it can't be done in a day, and the farmer will necessarily be slow in coming into his own. If the JA, XIT and Matador ranches were to put their lands on the market at the same time the Panhandle would once again see one dollar and, land the end sought would be farther off than ever. The big ranchman holds Panhandle at his mercy. If he turns loose the bottom will fall out and many will suffer but he won't turn loose. HUNGRY?
