Merchants Should Organize THE movement to organize Retail Merchants' association with a view to co operating to increase trade, is one to which The Herald offers its warm, support; a movement that should be hacked and pushed by every merchant in El Paso. -,, By united action much good can come to the merchants and the -city generally. In St Louis such an association has resulted in bringing millions of dollars to bt. Louis dealers that the merchants are positive would have gone elsewhere-to the smaller cities and towns, for instance. But the St. Louis merchants organued and made it possible for buyers to come to the city, make their purchases . ietu home without it costing them a cent railroad fare-and this accomplished with tie advantage of larger stocks to select from and the cheaper prices of a city, it was Be trouble to draw customers- . In St Louis the association issued books to each member and when an outor towH customer came to the store and began buying, he was given one of these books. Entries equaling the amount purchased at the first store were made and tie the customer went to the next and thepext, each store making an entry to show how much trading nad been done. At the end of the day or week, the pur chaser then werft to the headquarters , of the association and got a rebate on transportation according to the amount of money spent in the city with the mem bers of the association. On $50 worth the association furnished transportation 50 miles on $100 worth transportation for 100 miles, and so on. It was thus possible for people intending to make large purchases to travel a great distance, trade at city prices, in big stores where the selection of goods waslarge, and re turn home without having to pay railroad fare. Some such arrangement as this among the El Paso merchants, well advertised, ought to bring a great deal of trade tol Paso. And not only this, it is well for the merchants to be organized anyhow; to meet occasionally and discuss trade con ditions and affairs of general interest to the business world. It keeps them im touch with each other, engenders a spirit of fraternity that is helpful to the community, and makes for a better business understanding. Let's have the association. o El Paso witnesses the closing of another $17,000 real estate deal, but things like that are becoming mere trifles in this city these days. . o Acting mayor Robinson is not far from right when he calls that $82,000 school board deficit a fright It would scare most school boards into doing something to remedy it but the majority in the El Paso school board doesn't seem to scare easily. o k That showing of profits of El Tigre is not abad argument against the value f investing in the stock of sound southwestern mines. -; Q ' It has been raining east of El Paso and the stockmen are smiling. It's enough to make a cow laugh. - o r - - . - j e Paso hopes all the goat raisers in the country will butt into that show that is going to be pulled off here during the fair. " o Cloudcroft Ian IT IS gratifying to learn of the progress that is being made to erect a sanatorium for babies at Cloudcroft- This mountain resort in the pines) high above the heat, is an ideal location for infants in the summer time. It is not an experiment; it has been demon strated that Cloudcroft is the ideal baby home. Many a sick and ailing child owes its lifetoday to the beneficent influences of the Cloudcroft climate. The odor of the pine's, the cool air from the blossoming flowers and the perfumed ferns; the gentle even temperature seems to form a tonic . under which the weak little bodies grow and develop with wonderful rapidity. Many El Pasoans have homes in these piney woods, but many haven't, but seed them. To the latter, the hospital for bames willbe a great boon. Infants can be taken there to escape the heat appalling to the little ones of the altitudes less favored by nature, and improve and mend under the gentle restfulness of the temperature and climate of "the roof garden of the southwest." It is not only a convenience; it is a necessity; it is a philanthropy, this hospital in the clouds, and all El Paso and the southwest will applaud the work of the promoters. Cloudcroft is no longer a "pleasure resort" with El Pasoans; it is an institu tion, and the baby sanatorium will make it more so. And the big hotel will result ia spreading its beneficent influence from El Paso and the southwest over a terri tory the confines of which will only be limited by the geographical limitations of" the continent Great is Cloudcroft- ' i o Good evening.

So many are entering the circu lation contest that this question is becoming a common one. o - The power of the speaker may.be broken, but not the wilL Cannon is not as noisy as his name, but as a fighter, he liyes up to it in every particular. . o El Paso is going to have a system of county roads in a short time that will equal any in the country. o ' ' ' Just watch El Paso grow. Not only is it perceptible to the eye, but you can hear it- It makes a noise like a city that is going to be a metropolis sooner than tiost people imagine. t Tucumcari had a jail delivery and it was not rural delivery, either, for Tu- cumcari is a city now. . o A few years ago the man who would have aftempeted to wreck the Mills build ing would have been a despoiler. Now, he is hailed as a Moses a Moses leading El Paso into the sky scraper era. o sr The only kind of a "dry" campaign that appeals to some people is a cam paign for some of the stuff that is labeled "extra dry."

"Who Is that distinguished "dignified look ing man?" nine outrff ten visitors to the senate galleries ask. pointing to a, member on the Republican side of the senate chamber. "Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts," the guide invariably re plies, without turning his head to fol low the index finger. Upon the floor of the United States senate Lodge Is undoubtedly the per sonification if dignity. The United States senate almost ranks in Mr. Lodge's af fections with the Sacred Codfish. When in Washington; Mr. Lodge is very much a United States senator, except when Theodore Roosevelt ishere. On such occasions he Is an enthusiastic pedes trian, wading through Rock Creek, or a professed, lover of a fifty mile ride astride a thoroughbred,. When the senator goes back to Massachusetts he has three personalt ies. "- When politicians and office seek ers are in his Immediate nelghborhooa he promptly becomes the most frigid person on the face of the earth. He can usually give a man frost bite by staring at him. When he gets down to his summer home at Nahant he becomes a literary person during a majority of the hours ,of each day. An ordinary citizen could not break dnto the sanc tity of his library with a crowbar. There is one hour in the day, how ever, during which senator Lodge be comes a mere man. "Whenever the na tives of "the village of Nahant see Mr. Lodge emerging from his home clad In a bathing suit they observe a man de void, not only of all unnecessary ar ticles of clothing, but also of dignity. When It comes to real love for swim ming judge Alton B. Parker isn't in It with senator Lodge. The latter goes down on the beach in front of hisjiome and cavorts around like a kitten. True, it is a private beach, from which the natives are excluded as religiously as from the Jibrary, but it is the only spot on earth where Mr. Lodge forgets to wear his dignity, and seeing him thus Is such a treat that it is said not to be uncommon for the natives to row around the point, throw anchor over- (From The Herald Years H SCHOLARS BECOME MARTINEZ Members of the High school have broken into the literary field and each of the higher grades is now publishing a weekly newspaper.

The insurgents, of course, are ab normal, out even the old veterans of the house are different today than they were a dozen years ago. "I was reminded of this recently when the speaker appointed a committee to attend the funeral of a member who had died in Washington. There was to be a congressional funeral and the committee was to do the honors for the national legislature. "The sergeant-at-arms arranged for two special cars one for the family and another for the congressional com mittee. As soon as the dome of the capitol was well out of sight the mem bers of the house and senate, tired of conversation, opened their bags and produced reading matter having a dl- rect bearing on legislation pending m congress. "That was not the way we whiled away the time in the good old days. Perhaps it's just as well that things have changed, but lvcan't help thinking about the viewpoint of the new genera tion. In the old days the sergeant-at-arms had a lot more consideration for the comfort of the committee than now. Then the car was well stocked with our favorite bTands of whisky and cigars. After we had reflected upon the great ness of the man. whose body we were accompanying, some one would push a bell and the porter set up a couple of tables. "Of course, we meant no disrespect to the dead, but those funeral parties were weary affairs. Hence our con science aid not hurt us as we sat into a nice sociable game ot draw poker, with a well tipped porter ever at our side to quench our thirst, with no wives to "telephone to about important busi ness detaining us at the capitol, and all that sort of thing. When we arrived at our destination we upheld the dignity of congress, just as we were expected to, and resumed the game on the home ward jourjiey.

Mine b7 Frederic ' T- Haskin ENORMOUS TREASURE BOX OF ALASKA THE controversy over labor condi tions In the great Treadwell mine on Jjouglas island, Alaska, br.s aroused so much interest that the ia- tional I iiieau of labor is p-epir.tig to I lssu-j ? 1 alletin on the sybit-r. ?uriiy labor authorities declare this mine to be one of the most dangerous in exist ence, while the owners reply that no-who-t else are men better cared for. The Treadwell is one of the largest old mines in the world, and has con tributed much to the fame of Alaska. For many years this wonderful mine has paid its owners a profit of nearly $6000 a day, and there is enough ore left to keep the monster plant working day and night for probably 20 years to come. Mine Sold for $435. The man who discovered this extra ordinary rrineral deposit did not realize its value and sold it for $435. Almost every school boy has heard about the "glory hole" of the Treadwell, but few of them know how it came to have that nare. French Pete was the discoverer of the mln'e which has already producedS25, 000,000 worth of gold. He was a small merchant in Juneau, who had a hard time to make both ends meet. In the fall of 1S81 he received a shipment of goods to replenish his stock for the win ter. jThe freight charges amounted to $435, and Pete did not have this much money. A prospector by the name of Treadwell was panning along the beach and Pete offered him the claim on Douglas Island if he would redeem the goods. Treadwell paid the freight and the mine has been called by his name ever since. The property which changed hands by this deal contained one of the largest bodies of gold bearing rock in the world. The ore is located favorably at the water's edge, where steamers can tie up alongside the mills. Several city blocks could be dumped into the "glory hole." It is a monster pit where the ore has been lifted out In chunks like building rock Is taken from a quarry. Men working in the bottom o it look like crawling flies. The thunder of the blasts, the clouds of smoke and the hollow voices of the men combine to make an effect so un canny that it would not seem at all surprij-jng if his satanic majesty should bound out of the rock at one side or come soaring up through the smoke fro.n the depths. Gigantic Plant. Douglas island is 20 miles long and pisht miles wide. Although the Tread well is best known on account of the "glory hole." the fact is that there are over 60 miles of tunnels underground. One of these extends out under the sea for nearly a quarter of a mile. On the surface there are six miles of track, which run inside the build ings, to and from the different struc tures -and along tho piers. Numerous dummy engines push and pull long strings of little cars and make more fuss about it than as many moguls. The Treadwell runs 24 hours every day in the year, except the Fourth of July and Christmas. It takes 200 tons of coal every day to keep the many wheels moving, and the roar of its ma chinery may be heard a mile away. There are 880 massive crushers, call ed stamps, each consisting of five heavy upright bars of steel that are lifted up to fall with terrific force on flat, hard plates. The rock passes under these pounding bars and is smashed into dust. These noisy, powerful ma chines consume about 4500 tons of rock daily. In order to keep the ore rolling into their Insatiable mouths, $1400 worth of powder is used in blasting every day. The amount of gold realized from every 24 hour run is about $10,000, and the expense of operating is about $4000. The ore is low grade the lowest in the world to pay such profits. It averages only $2.65 per ton, but there is so much of it, and it is handled in such a wholesale and econennical man ner, that it runs fast into money. Plant Is Complete. On account of the Treadwell beimr so remote from civilization, it Is nec essary to maintain a most complete plant. There is a fully equipped foun dry, where any piece of broken ma chinery can be replaced Immediately. A. fine assay office makes it unnecessary to send the ore away to have Its value established, and a modern hospital is maintained to care for the sick and wounded. So many people work in the mine that it supports a United States postoffice of the third class. The company store has a stock of goods valued at $110 000 the stock of iron and steel kept con stantly on hand is worth $50,000, and the supply of powder is worth $40,000 Tho company store, butcher shop' and cook houses are large departments, be cause the firm boards its men. It s no small undertaking to feed all these ro bust miners. " The butchers in the company shop cut up three beeves every day, besmes quantities of fish, pork and mutton It takes 6000 pan cakes to go round in the morning, and four barrels of flour are made into 3S00 biscuits every dav Another daily ration ls 60 pounds 'of coffee and lo pounds of butter The number of eggs used dally is 2300.

There is such a mixture of nationalitijs that 17 different languages are sposen in the camp, and the unique feature of the situation is that the superintendent can talk to only 20 percent of his men. To the remainder he has to make signs or depend upon Interpreters, which always is unsatisfactory'. Few of the men are married. They get from $2 to $3.50 per csy ard rhelr board and Jodfjing. Many of them come direct from Eurot-o to et ter the employ o" the cni.iijany and iro5t of them save the grearer ;nrr cf their wages. They cut their .own hair, do' their own washing and, in fact, get along as cheaply as only Europeans can. Their only regular expenditure seems to be the purchase of cigarets, of which they are excessive smokers. Many of the men leave their money with the company, the books at one time showing that over $300,000 in wages "was uncalled for. The company pays no interest on this money, but dgrees to pay any or all of it on de mand. The largest sum due any one man was $5000. He did not draw a" cent for a year and a half after he went to work. Slav Predominate. Slavs and Scandinavians predominate among the nationalities employed in the mine. About the only expression in English that they can ever master is "all right," and they work it over time. No matter whether one of them is called a liar or told that dinner is ready, he invariably answers, "All right." Their inability to understand what is said to them often causes trouble. One day a new toss was superintending a big blast, and as a couple of workmen approached, he shouted: "Don't go that way or you'll get your heads blown off." One of them answered, "Air right," and the boss, supposing from their answer that they understood Eng lish, made a break for cover. They had not understood him at all and walk ed right into the blast, receiving the full force of it. There wasn't enough left of them to hold an Inquest over, tj Blast Twice Daily. Working with powder is always a dangerous job, and it is particularly so for these ignorant foreigners. The prin cipal blasts are made at noon and at 6 o'clock. An elevator goes down the shaft to the level where everything ls ready but the lighting of the'fuse, and as soon as this is touched off there is a quick flight upward to safety. Sometimes the men complete their work before the elevator ls due, and, in order to get to the surface and loaf awhile before the whistle blows, they light their fuses and climb the ladders that lead from one level to another. One day three1 men touched off the fuses and ran for the ladders. 3?wo of them mounted safely, but the third one missed his first step and became so con fused that he couldn't make his feet stick to the rounds of the ladder. The blast went off with a resounding re port and about all there was left of the poor fellow were the buttons from his breeches and the buckles from his sus penders. miraculous Escape. Probably the most remarkable acci dent that ever happened at the Tread well was when a Swede fell down a shaft 25C feet Into 10 feet of water without beinsr killed. Whenever this story is told the hearer is naturally skeptical, but remarkable as it was, he actually fell that distance and lived to resume work in the mine. "Wnen he fell he had on a slicker coat and a pair of gum boots. Both his boots came off, one of them being found at the 110 foot level, and the other at the 220 foot level. He maintained an up right position during the whole of his awful fall and struck the water feet first. "When the cage was sent down after him it was not with the Intention of performing a rescue, but to make preparations for a funeral. He was not even unconscious. An examination revealed the fact that not a bone was broken by the terrible plunge. However, his nerves sustained such a severe shock that he was con fined to the hospital for eight months, and he did not do any heavy work for two years. In referring to his experi ence, he said: "I one big yumper." Support Y. 31. C. A. Although the men are extremely eco nomical, they cheerfully contribute Si a month for the support of the hospital, and a like sum for the maintenance of the Y. M. C. A. The company spent $9000 for the erection of a suitable building and the membership dues de fray the running expenses. It has a gymnasium with baths, besides a read ing room containing literature in all the languages spoken in the camp. It is impossible to even estimate the quantity of gold that is locked up be hind the rocky walls of Alaska's moun tains. Some say it Is more than equal to the riches all the mines in the world have yet produced. The country that Uncle Sam bought from Russia for less than 2 cents an acre has proved to be the greatest bargain ever made in real estate. "When Treadwell paid the freight on French Pete's goods, and took over the claim that proved-to be the "glory hole" of mining history, he paved the way for operations that will go on for years and years, adding all the while to the horde of wealth the world is storing in its treasure vaults.
