OFFICIAL PAPER OF SOCORRO COUNTY.
New Mfxlco demands slatehooj
of the 57th conjeresi.
Wbj Not to Socorro?
The Ciiikftain has frequently
of late called the attention of its
readers to the fact that Socorro
would soon have an opportunity
to secure an oast and west rail
road. It is now possible to give
some evidence to show that the
" prediction was not made at ran
dom. The St. Louis KYptiblic of
"March 2 contains the following
special dispatch from Dallas,
"The Frisco is to he the first
great transcontinental railway
'system in the United States
'using its own tracks, with a
choice of Savannah and Liruus
'wick, Ga., and Charleston, S. C,
for the Atlantic outlet to San
Diego on the Pacific. On the
cast Uirmingham is now reached;
'to the west the coast extension
will run from (Juanah, Tex., on
a choice of three routes, to A!!u
juenjue, Socorro, N. M., or Kl
'l'aso, Tex.; through Phoenix.
Ariz., to the coast. The infor
mation is positive, the intention
definite. President Yoakum
passed through here today on his
return from California, where he
-visited his mother at Los Angel
es, accompanied by General So
licitor Parker. General Mana
ger W'inchell joined him here,
'and the three started for St.
;Louis over the new Rod River
Of the three routes mentioned
there can be only one choice. If
the Frisco is to be a transconti
nental line using its own track
why should that company build
to either Albuquerque or 101 Paso?
There is already aline from each
of those points directly to the
Pacific coast. Moreover, there
are positive advantages in favor
of the Socorro route to be found
in the coal fields to the eastward,
in the extensive stock and min
eral resources and the heavy tim
kr of the western part of the
county, and in the fact that So
vorro is exactly on a straight
line from (Juanah to San Diego,
while Albuquerque is nearly a
hundred miles north and Kl Paso
nearly two hundred miles south
of that line.
The above is only one of the
possibilities that Socorro may
Kxm have an east and west rail
road. There are others.
get the islands on latter terms,
however, now than we would
have done then. The islands are
more valuable to us in l'X)2 than
they would have been in lHi7.
We could not afford to let the
islands get into the hands of any
other Kuropean nation than Den
mark. It was known that Den
mark wanted to sell them. If
we refused to buy we would bo
in no position to oppose the
buying of them by Germany or
any other nation which would
pav Denmark's price.
There is a chance that the
Democrats see in this Danish
bribery tale an opportunity to
make a little political capital for
the congressional canvass. If
they have anything of this sort
in mind they will be disappoint
ed. The Republicans are in
control of all branches of the
government, and if there should
be any irregularity proved in
connection with the purchase of
the islands the Republican party
I might 1j hit. Dut there is not
the faintest chance that the story
which comes from Denmark, and
which Richardson, of Tennessee,
exploited in the House, is true.
The way in which its truth or
falsity can be demonstrated is by
a prompt, rigid and impartial in
quiry, and this has been provid
ed for. The country will learn
very soon what there is to this
Danish bribery story.--Globs-Democrat.

A Yalimldo Medicine
For coughs and colds in children.
"I have not the slightest hesi
tancy in recommending Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy to all
who are suffering from coughs
or colds," says Chas. M. Cramer,
During the rebellion which oc
curred in Ireland in 17'S, or it
may bo 'in 1K')3, Kilkenny was
garrisoned by a troop of Hessian
soldiers, who amused themselves
in barracks by tying two cats to
gether by their tails and throw
ing them across a clothesline to
fight. The officer, hearing of
the cruel practice, resolved to
stop it. As he entered the room
one of the troopers, seizing a
sword, cut the tails in two as the
animals hung across the line.
The two cats escaped minus their
tails through the open window,

Tbe Danish Bribery Tale.
Pkouauly there is no truth in
that tale from Denmark that
money is to be given to certain
members of the American Con
gress and certain American news
papers for favoring the consum
mation of the purchase by the
United States of Denmark's is
lands in the Caribbean sea. 15ut
ihe story is sufficiently circum
stantial to attract attention here,
knd the House of Representatives
does well in determining to in
vestigate it. According to this
report 10 per cent, of the ;ó,000,
OOO which the United States is
to give Denmark for the islands,
or $500,000, i to be disbursed by
Denmark's agent in this country
to congressmen and newspapers
for their aid in the island pur
Ou the face of things the story
looks decidedly unlikely. A
large majority of the American
people, it is Eafe to say, have
favored the purchase of those
Islands. A mistake wjs made,
TTjo-t .: tirans 1x lie e, when
Hi: KT-src.AK controls the
world's sugar market. It forms
the largest part of the commer
cial supply of sugar, and the
price at which it is sold deter
mines the price for cane-sugar
also. For many years the price
of beet-sugar has been artificial
ly affected by the practice of the
countries of Continental Kurope
of stimulating the production of
beet-sugar by bounties on export
The end in view has boon se
cured, but at a heavy cost. Ger
many has nearly doubled its
sugar product in ten years;
France has nearly trebled its pro
duct in twenty years. But the
bounties are a heavy drain on the
national treasuries. Germany
pays in this way more than five
million dollars a year, Austria
more than four millions, and
France about twenty million dol
lars. The same governments impose
high duties on imported sugar,
and thus enable the producers
and the "cartels," or sugar syn
dicates, to get a profit both ways.
They collect the bounties on the
sugar they export, and they sell
to the home consumer at a high
price. Sugar therefore costs
much more in the countries which
produce it than in those which
do not, and the consumption of
the article is checked.
Such a system is similar in its
effects to that of maintaining
great armies. It has been costly;
but no one country acting inde
pendently could abandon it.
Hence the assembling of the in
ternational sugar conference at
Brussels to determine on concert
ed action to abolish bounties.
The plan agreed upon by the
conference, if the governments
should adopt it, will not only do
away with bounties, but by low
ering the import duties will de
prive the sugar syndicates of the.
profits they have leen making at
the expense of the home consum
er. Against any country which
continues to pay bounties, the
governments in his agreement
will adopt the policy already in
force in the United States, of im
posing oa sugar from such coun
try a "countervailing duty" suf
ficient to offset the tmunty.
"Bounty-fed sugar" will thus be
deprived of the advantage it
would otherwise have in the
world's markets. It was the
threat of Great Britain, the chief
market? of Continental sugar, to
impose such a duty which has
tened the Brussels agreement.

The papers have had some
thing to say about the alleged
discovery, by Chicago investiga
tors, of a process for developing
forms of life from a combination
of certain chemicals.
A stranger who was visiting
the stock-yards in that city was
shown a laboratory which had a
severely scientific look about it,
and was informed that some won
derful results had been achieved
by the experiments in that de
partment of "Packingtown" in
dustries. "Is this where the make ani
mals out of chemicals?" he asked.
"Oh, no," replied the employe
who was showing him round.
"This is where they make chem
icals out of animals."

daily grew worse. Being urged

their makers have aimed to cure,
