Collector Abraw Abkvta is confident that be will succeed in collecting at least seventy-five per cent of the taxes assessed in Socorro county for the year 1901. AH circumstancesconsidered, this s a remarkably good showing. It would be the rankest sort of an absurdity to assert that Socor ro county can not raise money enough by a reasonable rate of taxation to pay current expenses and other obligations; yet the county commissioners had no money with which to pay the bills presented for the last quarter of 1901. If the laws in regard to taxation are defective, it is to be hoped that the next legislative assembly will provide a remedy for such an unreasonable and un necessary state of affairs as ex ists in this county. Thh Chikftain begins this week the publication of an article on the Klectrolytic Treatment of Tuberculosis by Doctor J. Kor nitzer of this city. The article is published in pamphlet form also for general distribution by the author. Doctor Kornitzer has tested this treatment in many cases, always with very gratifying results, He now gives to the world the benefit of his ex perience confident that if this method of treatment is generally adopted he will have the extreme gratification of knowing that he has done much to alleviate one of the greatest ills that flesh is heir to. In another column will be found an editorial from the Brownsville, Tcnn., States-Graphic concerning Jlon. A. A. Freeman. The article is by an oldtime political rival, but warm personal friend, of Judge Freeman. It needü no further word of explanation. We presume to express our hearty endorsement of every word of the tribute to Judge Freeman's personal character, even though we are not in accord with his attitude toward the territorial administration. , i- I 53 Thh offer of the Panama Canal company to sell their property to the United States for $40,000,000 makes the cost of building by the Panama route and by the Nicara gua route about equal. Each route possesses important advantages over the other. For instance, the distance between the two oceans by the Panama route is 49 miles while that by the Nicaragua route is 184 miles. On the other hand, while the distance from the Atlantic ports of the United States to the ports of the western coast of South America is much shorter by the Panama route, the distance to the western coast of the United States and to the Sandwich and Philippine islands is much shorter by the Nicaragua route. These are but examples of a large number of facts the consideration of which may cause some- delay. However, that such a canal will be constructed within the next fifteen years is about as sure as that time will continue its flight for that many years. , Judge A. A. I'rtmniaii, JrncE A. A. Freeman, who resides in New Mexico, is opposed ta certain methods by which statehood, is sQujht, and on that account some of the press of the territory are assailing him in very bitter terms. Judge Freeman was born and reared in this coun ty, and Tennessee never gave birth to a purer man or a more upright citizen. Of course we have had honest differences with him on politics, but never for a moment have we doubted his robust integrity of character or failed to admire his great ability and learning. His tenacity of purpose, his strong opposition to what is wrong or corrupt, his courageous convictions, and his pure life have conspired to make him a commanding figure and a man of marked force and influence. His enemies in New Mexico will soon find out what manner of man Judge Freeman is. States Graphic (Brownsville, Tcnn.). The UoftMin Why. Theke is now about three thousands dollars in the court fund for Socorro county. Of course this sum will be consid erably increased before the time for court to convene in May. Those who are not familiar with the facts in the case may have wondered why Socorro coun ty should have so few and so short terms of court even when possessed of a generous fund for that purpose, while smaller pountieslike Lincoln, forinstance, are favored with regular and longer terms of court. For example, when the district court convened in this city last spring there was eight thousand dollars in the court fund, yet the term was not a long one and there has been no session since. The explanation is to be found in the size of the county. At last spring's term of court, in fact, the mileage fees of the sheriff, witnesses and jurors in two murder cases brought from the western part of the county over a hundred miles distant consumed fully one-half the total court fund. Of course nobodv is bl am able for this state of affairs. The facts are stated simply by way of explanation. A Tribunal for Labor. ' At the recent conference of the National Civic Federation in New York, Mr. John Mitchell, presi dent of the United Mine Workers, said that, although he had taken part in as many strikes as any man of his age, he never had known a strike which could not have been averted if the employers and their men had met in honest conference before the strike was begun. The court of labor appointed at the New York meeting is intended to promote such con ferences as Mr. Mtchell had in mind. It is to be a permanent tribunal to arbitrate such labor disputes as may be submitted to it, precisely as The Hague tribunal was organized to arbitrate between discordant na tions; and there will be a certain moral benefit from the mere fact of its existence, even when it is not called upon to act. But there is something better even than arbitration of disputes, ; and that is the adjustment of a ; rising disagreement before the ! issues have been so drawn that one side or the other must give upsomethingbeforea compromise can be reached. It may be that the chief use of the new court or committee will be in inducing employers and employed to come together for a frank consideration of each other's position before either has taken the first hostile step. Composed of leading representa tives of capital and labor, in equal numbers, with a third group of eminent and disinterested citizens holding the balance of power, the newcommittee may wellcommand the confidence of both sides in labor disputes. It will be agreed on all hands that the work which it is intended to do is desirable; the conditions under which the committee was appointed and the spirit manifested at the New York conference indicate that it is practicable. Jt may not solve the labor problem, but it is an important step toward a solution; and just so far as employers and workmen, with or without the direct aid of the committee, talk over their differences before ordering strikes or lockouts, the waste and rancor of labor wars will be avoided. Youth's Com panion. 8 . ! n America's Mineral Wealth. The final figures of the coun try's aggregate mineral produc tion are somewhat slow incoming to hand, but we are getting them. Those for the year 1900 have just been furnished, and they make a very favorable showing. In that year for the first time in the annals of the United States the country's mineral output passed the $1.000,000,000 mark. This fact was seen several months ago to be probable, but the final and revised figures, which arc now made public from Washington, give the actual output officially. The precise figures are $1,067, 603,605. As there was gain in several of the items in 1901, the figures for the year just ended will undoubtedly, when they are compiled and revised in the ag gregate ten or twelve months hence, make a very encouraging exhibit. An increase in the United States gold production was made in 1900 over 1899, and a gain in 1901 over 1900 has been scored. There has been a slight increase, too, in silver. But the precious metals are far from being at the head of the list of the country's mineral products. The coal production of the country in 1900, for example, was $307,000,000, as compared with $79,000,000 for gold and $36,000,000 for silver. In 1890, for the first time, the coal product of the United States passed the mark for the British anu tnis country tooKtne lace among the coal produc Uities of the world. Coal ni in 1900 accounted for Vhalf of the total of the , aggregate metallic r $566,000,000. ib, in aggregatemineral h' no other country in Id makes any close to the United States. Moreover, the growth in the out put oí the United States is greater than is scored by any other country. Apparently there is no limit to the possibilities in the way of the production of the metals in this country. The United States has again taken the lead in gold output, and will probably hold it untjl the South African mines are opened to their full capacity, which can not be until after the war in that section is ended finally and permanently. Colorado and Alaska are the fields in which theUnited States stands a chance to make its greatest gains in gold output in the near future, but this is only one, and not the most important, of the great avenues of mineral wealth production of the country. Globe-Democrat. ísianrw first ing J and,; mote couv prJ A approach Who Was Mom's? The teacher of a class of small boysin Sunday school asked, "Who was Moses?" The answer was, "Moses was an austere man and made atonement for the sins of his people." The teacher re peated the answer several times and told the class to be ready to answer when the superintendent asked thequestion. Little Johnnie repeated the answer several times to himself so he would not forget and when the superintendent asked, "Who was Moses?" Johnnie, elated at being called ujon, answered in a loud voice, "Moses was an oysterman and made ointnutat for the shins of bis people." Tat' Kepi J.

"Something New Under The Sun." All Doctors have tried to cure catarrh by the use of powders, acid gases, inhalers and drugs in paste form.

When Queen Wilhelmina was a child, she was not allowed ordinarily to share dinner with the older members of the royal household, but on special occa sions was permitted to make her appearance at dessert and place herself beside some particular favorite. One day, says the Chicago Record-Herald, she sat by a courtly old general. Presently she exclaimed: "I wonder you're not afraid to sit next to me!" Everybody in the room turned at the sound of the child's treble. "On the contrary, I am pleased and honored to sit next to my future queen. Why should I be afraid?" Assuming a wobegone expres son, the little queen replied: "Because all my dolls have the measles." Remarkable Cure of Croup. A Little Hoy's Life Saved. I have a few words to say regarding Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It saved my little boy's life and I feel that I cannot praise it enough. I bought a bottle of it from A. E. Stecre of Goodwin, S. D., and when I got home with it the poor baby could hardly breathe. I gave the medicine as directed every ten minutes until he "threw up" and then I thought sure he was going to choke to death. We had to pull the phlegm out of his mouth in great long strings. I am positive that if I had not got that bottle of cough medicine, my boy would not be on eacth today. Joel Demont, Inwood, Iowa.
