FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 1906. PURE rOOD LAW. Dr. David R. Fly in the Dallas News calls the attention of the pub lic to the importance of a pure food law. Doctor Fly has studied this subject and has doubtless done more than any one man in Texas in moulding public sentiment against poisonous nostrums and adulterat ed foods. We reproduce his timely and pointed article in the News of date of June 7th: "DR. DAVID R. FLY CALLS ATTENT10NTO EVILS OF IMPURE FOODS- "I beg leave to call attention of friends, and especially of our con gressmen, through the columns of your valuable paper to the fact that the pure food bill is lying dormant in the committee room in the house of representatives at Washington. It is slowly but surely dying from inattention, and unless promptly resuscitated and pushed to the front by public opinion and the lead ing newspapers of the country it will surely sleep the slumber of the hypnotized. "There is no organization except the American Medical Association to bring pressure on those who have the matter in charge, but there are any number of organizations to represent those who are opposing it, namely, the Patent Medicine Association, the whisky blenders and various manufacturers of mis branded and fraudulent foods, who are spending millions to defraud the people of this all-important meas ure. It is generally understood that there is a goodly majority in the house in favor of the measure, and if the bill could be brought to a final vote its passage is almost as sured. "Another danger that threatens the integrity of the bill is that nu merous amendments have been brought forth which will materially weaken the measure if they are adopted. I believe that the people are in earnest in their demand for the law and that the awakening of a strong public opinion at this time would be the means of a successful issue. We have been called a na tion of dyspeptics by our European brethren, and I believe this condi tion is largely due to the many strains of modern commercial life and the way in which we bolt our food and the class of foodstuffs of which we partake. It is a foregone conclusion that unless a sweeping reformation is effected we will soon become a nation of neurasthenics. "We have our great standingarmy e HORSEMEN!

THE TIDE OF PROSPERITY. In the closing days of the spring season the United States is still maintaining its wonderful stride of prosperity with no signs of decrease in the present activity. In fact, all the signs point to even a greater degree of prosperity in the next twelve months than in the past. According to an impartial and disinterested foreigner, Commis sioner Bell, of the British foreign office, the year 1905 was the best in the history of this country, and the coming year will be more pros perous than any of its predeces sors. Commissioner Bell's report to his home office shows that the United States treasury contained $765,000,000 m gold on Decem ber 31, 1905, and that the amount of money in circulation per capita was $31.75, the highest on record. The balance of trade in favor of this country forthe year was $420. 285,185, or, in other words, this country is absorbing the wealth of other countries at the rate of near ly half a billion dollars a year, Our foreign commerce reached the high est mark in its history, amounting to $2,778,555,883. Our imports were principally luxuries, such as wines, jewelry and silks, showing that the American people are on a higher economic basis than that of mere necessities and comforts, and they have plenty of money to spend for luxuries. Besides the vast sum of nearly half a billion dollars which was re ceived from other nations last year, the United States absorbed over 1,000,000 able bodied immigrants whose labor will go to swell the prosperity of the coming years. This army of laborers was assimi lated into Jour industrial system without disturbing local conditions or affecting the wags of the Amer ican laborer in the least. The credit for this great pros perity is due primarily to the farm ers, whose products last year reached the huge total of $6,415,-000,000- In other words, nearly six and one-half billions of dollars came out of the ground through the toil of the farmers. No other country in the world ever produced such primal wealth as this, and no other country ever had such a solid and enduring foundation for its in dustrial and commercial super structure. As to the future, the splendid crop prospects give ample assur ances of stability for at least an other year, and the industrial and railway development is proceeding on a larger scale than last year, The factories and other industrial plants are overcrowded with or ders, and although they are turn ing out a larger product each year they are apparently unable to keep up with the demand. Plenty of work at good wages is assured to every man for a year to come, and there is no reason why anyone who is able to work should not get his share of the overflowing prosper ity, according to his ability.

The poet has said this of vice even. By how much more is it referable to what is good for man? Forty years ago the eating of oat meal was confined to certain foreign born residents and their immediate descendants. Now it is a table food of almost universal use In this country. There can be no question but that if the Southern growers of com meal were to use advertising space they would make their superior corn meal as popular as tne vari ous brands of oats that are upon the market. A hundred years ago scarcely a dozen businesses or trades used newspapers as a means to publicity. It was practically an untried ex periment. Patent medicine men were pioneers. For a long time shipping interests, hotels, restau rants and stage lines divided space with the medicine advertiser.. The success of these led others to fol low.

When one has something in his line which sells poorly, let him try upon it the virtue of publicity. It will have to be a very sorry thing and a very undersirable Ihing if it does not grow into fayor through being talked about. Mr. Hearst pays hiscompliments to some high-up politicians in a fashion that contains none of those little ambiguities that leave room for doubt of his meaning: The Indianapolis Star has re ceived a telegram from William Randolph Hearst in reply to a mes sage asking him for his opinion of the certain endorsement of William m Booklet, p-" mi Jennings Bryan recently expressed in various quarters. The telegram from Mr. Hearst is as follows: "To the Indianapolis Star: "I have been for many years a sincere friend in support of Mr. Bryan. I rejoice in his success and I approve of every honest endorse ment of him. "Personally I would never wel come in the company of loyal friends of Bryan and sincere advocates of good government any such men as Tom Taggart, gambling house keep er; Tom Sullivan, keeper of dives and brothels, Lord Proctorof crooks and criminals; nor would I ever welcome such men as' Pat McCar ren, election thug; or Geo. C. Mc Clellan, election thief; nor such Captain Kids of industry as Bel mont, Morgan and Dave Francis, all of whom, with their mercenar ies, were last mustered under the stained and draggled banners of Cleveland and the corporations. "I am confident that Mr. Bryan will repudiate, utterly, these men and their professions of friendship, realizing that they are not honest ly in favor of any man or any mea sure that will protect the interests of the plain people of this country.

Royalty sprinkled with wealth made it a notable oc casion of the kind. Nothing new about it just titles, diamonds, and millions on a small and exclusive dress parade. If Mrs. Longworth had moved amongthe English mass es, studied sociological conditions, and written her father when she found a screw loose in running the English government what an admir able sample she would have made of the simple life and republican institutions! Mayor Miller, in one of his hap py addresses in welcoming the State Chief of Police convention, WW! stated that the rust on the big key that he presented was due the damp climate, but it would still un lock everything in the city except the jail. While the key and the rust were symbolical in character they are true to conditions. This section'his the best all around sea sons for crops in the state, and the hospitality of the people of Ama rillo is not exceeded by any other city in the south, which is world famous for its hospitality. Here and there packers are be ing found guilty of accepting re bates from the railroads. The punishment is a fine of from $1000 to $2,000 but no imprisonment. A few fines do riot disturb the pack ers, as one of their great troubles is knowing what to do with their money. When our law makers see their way clear to imprison rich violators of the law like they do poor folks the "Captiins of In dustry" will no longer lead the forces of anarchy. The municipality of Berlin, Ger many, has decided to build a cre matory for condemned meat at a cost of $300,000. If conditions are not overdrawn by President Roosevelt and Upton Sinclair, Chi cago ought to start out with a cre matory costing about $300,000, 000 for the same purpose, and in crease its capacity with the demand for its use. The sidewalk ordinance which appears in the columns of the Her ald reflects great credit upon the Mayor and city council, and when its provisions go into effect Ama rillo will be as famous for its side walks as it now is for the progress ive soirit of its citizens and the rapid strides it is making towards a commercial and railroad center.
