The Conservation Wave
CONSERVATION is the keynote of the world today. Conservation of forests,
conservation of water, conservation of game, conservation of birds, conserva
tion of everything is the one great cry, not only of the United States hut of
the world, and it is not a. hohhy, hut a necessity. There has been such a wilful de
struction of timher, animal life, hird life and other things of this character that
the world is in danger from the destruction. It is time to call a halt The cry is
aot raised a hit too soon.
The latest' conservation movement to take concrete form.Js.that for saving the
plumage hirds of the universe.
To urge the world powers to finite in checking the commercial butchery that is
knows, to be rapidly exterminating the most valuable bird species from the face of
the globe, a conservation movement of international scope has been organized in
Kew York. At the fifth quinquennial convention of the International Ornithologi
cal congress, which will be held in Berlin on May 30th, an American representative
from the National Association of Audubon societies has been instructed to present
for the consideration of the nations a plan for uniform protection against the army
tff poachers that scour the earth to supply its great millinery markets with the
plumage of billions of the birds, on whose natural activities the human race must
iepend for agricultural prosperity and sanitary safety. To enlist Mexico in a tri
parite agreement with the "United States and Canada in the interest of the migra
tory birds of the North American continent, a representative from this country is
also preparing to appear before the Mexican congress.
Heaaed by the National Association of Fish and Game commissioners, the
North American Fish and Game Protective association and the American Ornitholo
gists' union, as well as the National Association of Audubon societies, this cam
paign of protest against the rapid destruction of the feathered resources of every
land will be carried from this country to all civilized nations. Testimony from
the foremost agricultural and hygienic scientists showing the great part played by
the insect eaters in (checking crop pests and by the sea birds in averting pestilence,
is now being prepared as proof of the immediate need of their international pro
tection. Until the authorities of every nation join to check the illegal raids of the
scouts for the millinery markets, who
widely each year, the ornithologists declare, no hope can be held out against quick
and final extinction of the most- useful bird species that inhabit every land.
Details of the recent raid of Japanese poachers upon the bird reserves of the
United States about Hawaii have just been received and will he laid before the com
ing international conference with the growing demand for reciprocal hird protection
among the nations. Ten tons of the feathers of valuable Pacific-American species
with the skins and wings of over 259,000 birds have "been found to be some of the
booty that the revenue cutter Thetis brought hack with 25 subjects of Japan who
had "been landed on American soil to put in a year at killing and mutilating the
tame flocks on these remote islands. "While the value of these bloody trophies to
the wholesale millinery market is estimated at some $100,000, the bird life that
the Japanese destroyed in taking them is calculated to he worth to the people of
this country at least a million dollars.
"As lomg as billions of the most economically valuable hirds of the earth may
he destroyed in some countries and shipped to the millinery centers in other's, it
will be impossible to prevent their ultimate extinction," said William Dutcher,
president of the National Association of Audubon societies. "For instance, the
bird of paradise one of. the most striking and beautiful of nature's creations is
now on the verge of extinction. The sale of its plumage cannot be checked until
the natiOBS cooperate to this end. This trade in feathers as the chief cause of the
world's alarming loss of its bird resources which are essential to the health and
prosperity of the human race everywhere- Migratory hirds know no geographical
lines aad we do not helieve their existence should be menaced any longer by the
lack of the uniform protective laws we propose to advocate to the world , powers."
It is time to check the slaughter.

Keep the Girls
z
IF PARENTS could fully assure themselves that their daughters would receive in
an EI Paso private school every advantage of the best eastern, northern, and
western schools, without the fear and bitterness of years of separation and di
vided families during the loveliest time of girlhdod, they would gladly choose such
a school rather than send their children far away.
It is confUence in the truth of this assertion that leads a score or more of the
most prominent and public spirited business men to give their time, money, and
energy toward organizing and financing the El Paso School For Girls, plans for
which are now perfecting.
The school will be in capable hands, and will have a teaching force adequate to
the highest class of work, and by "highest class" is not meant merely scholarship,
but the well rounded education that makes a woman a more useful and a happier
member of the social body. The training will be many sided, and every need of the
young girl will be wisely met
It is hoped to make this school fully representative of El Paso and the south
west. No clique 13 promoting it, but the group of most enthusiastic workers is
formed on a basis of common interest in securing for El Paso a girls' school of the
highest grade, that will be in affiliation with the highest American schools, and
that will offer our southwestern girls every advantage, including that of nearness
to the homes o'f their parents. f.
The project is every way deserving of generous financial support.

HAMILTON AS VIEWEt
BY AX AUTOMOBILE EXPERT
Editor El Paso Herald:
Permit me to present a view which Is
most commonly shared oy the readers
of both papers.
El Paso has outgrown-. the" limitations
of a small western town. People are be
ginning to look upon El Paso as a city
1 of no mean Importance, and for this rea-
wii tut? press, tv nicn uuuia voice uie
hopes and aspirations of every citizen of
1 El Paso for a larger and greater El
Paso should stand far In advance of 4h
most optimistic citizen.
Because of the TImes's failure to se
cure an aviator of prominence we were
sOrry, but thought no more of it than
if Christy Mathewson had canceled his
engagement last fall. We look upon It
as the inevitable. vVhen The Herald
I -took up the matter and secured Hamil
ton we were "delighted" and I wish to
state here, that Mr. Hamilton exceeded
the expectations of evjry citizen who
witnessed his flights on Wednesday and
Thursday. The most common expres
sions at the park were: "Isn't he won
derful," and truly he is a bird man.
Even though he is a pupil of Curtis, as
in the line of musical art many, pupils
have shown more talent and .skill than
their masters;- It would seem so in this
case. Hamilton is Just as much a mas
ter of the air as Edison is of electricity.
What caused Hamilton's failure Tues
day? The same thing that causes your
automobile to refuse to move. It must be
adjusted to the altitude. I would not
term his failure to fly Tuesday to his
discredit as an aviator. It takes time to
adjust an intricate piece of merhanisn to
the condition of the air the currents
that are met. etc I wish to repeat it
again, that El Paso, was highly delight
ed with the flightof Hamilton, and we
place him in the honor roll among the
great aviators of the present time. I
wish to thank The Herald for Its en
deavors to secure Mr. Hamilton, and for
the skill nnd business like way in which
you carried out the entire meet. The
Times owes you an apology and they owe
Mr. Hamilton an apology for tne in
justice of Wednesday -morning's article.
Very truly yours, .
C. M. Barber.

father's ranch as a farmhand, cowboy
and bronco buster, and began life for
myself as a cowpuncher and bronco

What Mr. Carter doesn't know about
cowboy life is not worth knowing.
When debate lacks interest in the house
Mr. Carter retires to the Democratic
cloak room, lights up a cigar and leans
back in a leather upholstered chair.
"That reminds me of one day on the

PREVENTING MINE f
DISASTERS. : . FreoiC-
, T. Haskin
NEARLY 30,000 MINERS KILLED IN 10 YEARS ZIZZZ
T
iHE tragedy of the mine has be
come such a grewsome thing
that humanity may well shudder
at Its awful record. In the last 10 vears
10,000 metal miners have perished while j
at work.
In the j-ear 1907, 3125 unfortunates
lost their lives, and the following year
2450 were lost in the coal mines of the
United States alone. This terrible
tragedy of the mines is being enacted
nearly everj' day.
Only a short time ago more than 300
men were roasted to death In a coal
mine at Cherry, 111., and since then 200
more have been killed in explosions.
Seventynine were numbered on the
death foil at Pimero, Colo., and a few
days later 35 were killed in Kentucky.
Eleven were hurled into eternity at In
diana, Pa., and after that an explosion
in the Paulau mine to Mexico wiped
out nearly 100 more.
These disasters are coming so thick
and fast that there does not seem to be
time -between explosions to bury the
dead. Every time -the newspapers re
ports one of these horrors, 500,000 femi
nine hearts falter for a moment, for
the wife of the miner mas every reason
to live in constant apprehension.
Pitiful Scene at Cherry.
Today, at Cherry, 111., a most grew
some series of events is taking place.
One hundred and eighty bodies are still
in the mine, whose shaft was sealed
weeks ago in the hope of smothering
the fire that was raging. Miners and
officials, hoping that'-the fire has been
extinguished, are preparing to bring
out the bodies. The few surviving
miners, fearful that an epidemic of
disease will follow the removal of the
corpses, are cooly and sensibly demand
ing that the bodies of -the men in the
mine be destroyed by chemicals. The
women, many of them made' widows
by their husbands being lost In this
holocaust, are pleading that the bodies
be preserved for burial.
Sentiment means more to them in
their great grief tban any dire conse
quences that may follow. Many of
them feel that thev iwv niro,. i
all and that nothing worse can hap
pen. A sad feature of thisieart rending
tragedy is thnt 74 babies have been born
to these women since that terrible day
4 pitiful little orphans whose help
less plight calls for the deepest sym
pathy. The very suggestion that their
.fathers' lives may have been lost by
carelessness Is an awful arraignment
against those who are responsible.
Waser on Liven.
A shot firer in a coal mine, who
-was getting S3 a day for his dangerous
work, made a demand upon the super
intendent of the mine for more money.
"You're getting more wages now than
you are entitled to," was the reply of
the superintendent.
"Wages," exclaimed the shot firer
"thhi company doesn't pay me wages'.
It bets me $3 a day that I won't come
out of this mine alive. If I do the
company gives me S3; if I don't,' they
bury me." J
Seven hundred thousnnd .nni i
and 300.000 metal miners dailv make
that-they will come out alive. If they
wni , -they get their wages for the day:
if they lose, the company buries them
and that is about all. A little later,
tha widows may get a few hundred dol-
JZ f them settled e other day
at tho rate of ?250 each.

After this the United States govern
ment began a series of investigations
intrt the causes of disasters " in coal
mines. Th United States Ereolneicnl
survey, which was Intrusted with this ,
worK, established at Pittsburg a sta
tion patterned after the best scientific
stations in Europe.
It wa.a sniH hpfnrp fheco invostlo-a.
tions commenced that a miner took his j
life in his hands every time he touched
off a charge of powder In the mines,
the various explosives being so variable
in strength that no one knew just what
they would do.
Tho great fear of the coal miner Is
what is known as the "blown out" shot.
This means a shot that, instead of ex- !
ploding and breaking the coal, blows
out fnto the mine. This occurs when
the powder has not been properly
tamped, or when it Is not strong
enough to break the coal. A "blown
out" shot sends a tongue of flame leap
ing through the mine, and if there is
gas nearby or fine coal dust floating
in the air, an explosfon follows that
kills or maims everyone near.
Standardize Exploxlve.
The officials of the survey therefore
determined to standardize explosives
and to test them in the presence of
gas or coal dust. The explosives are
being tested in a huge cylinder, 100 feet
long and six feet in diameter. This
cj'linder was filled vith natural gas,
which corresponds with fire 'damp, and
a "blown out" shot was reproduced, the
explosive being fired by electrlclty
from a cannon in one end of the cj'lin
der. If an explosion followed, this
powder was not considered proper for
use in mines where there was gas.
The cylinder would then be filled
with coal dust and -the explosive dis
charged in it. If -the coal dust ignited
with a roar, then the explosive used
was deemed unfit for use In dangerous
mines. The investigation of explosives
was continued until a number were
found that would stand both tests with
out Ignitine- the eas or th coal dust.
1 These explosives were termed "permis
sible." and their use urged In mines
wuere there was gas or coal dust in
dangerous quantities. Two lists of "per
missible" explosives have so far been
published and recommended to the state
mining bureaus.
Coal Bnut a Problem.
A queer phase of the situation has
been the incredulity of the miners and
operators alike as to the exploslveness
of "coal dust. When the government
began its te?ts, hardly a miner In the
country believed that coal dust would
explode. They went to the Pittsburg
station In special trains to see It before
they would believe the statements made.
In this connection, the attention of
j the miners was called to the fact that
1 .1 . - . .
mere was a vioient explosion or flour
dust in a Minneapolis mill a number
of years ago. They were also .told
to remember that some of the greatest
explosions In the coal mines of the
United States, that at Monongah in
particular, wero caused by coal dust.
Thia has opened still another problem
which the officials are working op
how to render harmless .the coal dust
in the mines. . One exDerlment wnc tn
I rush to a certain mine, after there had
I 1, . 3 -
ueeii a auaaen arop in the tempera
ture, and investigate the condition of
the air. The officials calculated the
amount of moisture fntfrino- tha mi no.
rand the amount going out. and found to
their amezement that the mine was los
ing 50 tons of moisture every 24 hours.
It was readily seen that a few days of
such conditions would leave the coal
dust in a very dry state, and" render It
more liable to explode If It came into
contact with a flame. This Is the cause
of the great coal dust explosions that
have cost so many hundred lives- It
also explains why most of these dis
asters occur in the winter time.
Oxyjjen Helmets.
At the Pittsburg station there is a
.-, iWk.-WUV- . Wi.il y
where miners are taught the use of
roum Known as the "resercp rnnm
the oxyen hrtinet. an apparatus that
nermits breathing artificially in deadly
saes. Part of the "rescue room" con-
me oxjgeu neimet. an apparatus that
tain- an air tight comnartment. fittest
up to resemble the interior of a mine.
This place is filled with deadly gases,
and't1ir pvnorti! lwl In tlmd. ..,.
helmetscan remain there for two hours
j without returning to the fresh air.
-"- ""'s " me iresn air
These helmets have proved valuable im
mediately aftex explosions, permitting
ii-scuers 10 enter tne mines at once
and bring out men who were slowly be
ing asphyxiated.
The government, now has a crew of
trained rercuers who' respond to every
accident call within a reasonable radius
of the station. These heroes, although
arriving late at the' Cherry disaster,
brought 20 men alive from the burning
mine.
This work has been so successful
that substations have -been established
in the coal fields of Tennessee. Okla

His AVlfe Exhibits Him to Her Rela

"W
E won't go if It rains," tem
porized the Boss of the
Establishment.
"I promised we'd go, rain or shine,"
replied hls'-wife firmly, transfixing him
with the cold, inexorable gaze of fate.
"Well, I'll tell you one thing," the
Boss asserted, with a feeble Imitation
of decision. "You can't drag me 3c
miles in the country on a ralnySun
day." "Of course, if you don't want to meet
my relatives, there's nothing more to
be-said," rejoined his wife. "But I do
think that after all my patience and
courtesy to your hordes of cousins and
their good-fellow wives the Icind of
woman you know I loathe you might
have more consideration."
"All right, all right," replied the
Boss hastily. "Who said anything
about not going?"
Needless to say, the Boss prayed for
rain, for hall, snow, thunder storms,
or even an earthquake anything to
keep him from getting up early Sun
day morning and journeying into the
country to meet his wife's sister and
brotherinlaw. J
But Sunday dawned warm and clear.
'Tt's melting," announced the Boss;'
gazing wistfully from the window. "The
walking out there must be pretty bad."
"Yes; you'd better wear your rub
bers," his wife agreed.
To the Boss the mere fact of leaving
Ms four bulky Sunday newspapers un
read would have seemed appalling, even

had it been uncomplicated by the pros
pect of wearing a collar all day and
meeting persons he did not know and
might not like.
During breakfast he assumed a pa
thetic pose but which l?d him to re
mark finally: "I wonder what makes
me feel so bady this morning? My
head's splitting. Do you konw any
thing that's good for it?" ,
"Yes." said his wife. " a fin hrlslr

relatives.
Finally, however, the Boss's wife
was locked! in the arms of" th KtetPr.
and the Boss was left to the tender
mercies of his brotherinlaw, once re
moved.
"We were just having a little mu

man.

The Boss, whose long walk had oro-

been hoping ever since his arrival that

j the worst. His new brotherinlaw had
"been the prohibition candidate for se

"I'll take the life line," the Boss said
hopefully.
The hymn ground out its oloso nnH

jit promptly.
Then the Boss discovered irh Y,a
brotherinlaw possessed an extraordin
ary catholicity of taste in music. A
Carusorecord was followed by "Rings
on her Fingers and Bells on Her
Toes," and shls in turn by "Rock of
Ages."
Eventually the Boss lost alfrealiza
lon of what was being' played. Hours
passed and still the relentless phona
graph wheezed on. "-Hunger assailed
him and was soon intensified by a
maddening odor of roast turkey from
somewhere below. Was it possible, he
asked himself, that the music-madhost
had forgotten all about dinner! Or
did they dine in the evening, and was
he doomed to starve to slow music
all the afternoon!
In desperation he drew out his cl
garet case. .
"Have a cigaret?" he asked.
"Thank you, I don't indulge," de
clared, ms host.
"Would you mind opening a window
if you are going to smokeT" called his
sisterinlaw. '
In the course of time the Boss's
agony came to an end for dinner, a
strictly temperance affair, was an
nounced. But no sooner was the meal over than
he was led back to the torture. This
time it was a rollicking selection from
the "Pirates of Penzance, and need

they took the train home: "Look here

you for this, even if I have to buy yQU

Next morning when the Confirmed
Married Man commented on his Monday
grouch, the Boss remarked:
"Xo, it's not what you think. But
if you've never spent Sunday with
your wife's relatives there's no use of
my telling you. If you have I need
say no more."
