The insurance mmnanie and their local aeents are not going to stir up any more trouble than they can help, and there will be no effort to enforce the payment of ( the new rates, at present. Every person in paying for insurance, whether for a new policy or a renewal, should pay at the old rate and request the local agent to give a written statement that the policy is in full effect from date of issue. Any attempt on the part of a fire insurance company or an agent to enforce the collection of the new rate should be resisted immediately in court. By direction of the governor the state fire rating board has notified ihe fire insurance companies that the new- El Paso rate cannot be approved. Many of the fire insurance representatives themselves realize that in applying the new schedule of rates to risks in El Paso the general average of rates, especially in the business center, is made too high. It has also been disclosed that the previous inspections made for the insurance companies were in many cases careless, giving rise to serious errors in the computations. The prevailing sentiment in El Paso is strongly for the repeal of the law trader which the rates have been readjusted. The essential principle of the law is regarded as good, but it is considered doubtful whether the law can be amended sufficiently in the interests of the people or will have to be changed so com pletely as to necessitate -the enactment of an entirely new measure. In any event there can be no difference of opinion as to the fact that the insurance companies have taken advantage of the law to raise rates out of all reason. The net increases, even after many chnages have been made in line with the suggestions of the insurance representatives, will be very heavy and' wholly unjustified by conditions here. The chamber of commerce and the Retail Merchants' league have done splendid work so far in getting the facts before the people and arousing the attention of the authorities at Austin. It is now sought to inaugurate a statewide protest against the increased rates scheduled under cover of the new law. The insurance companies by their unwarranted excesses have only themselves to blame for the terrific outburst of public sentiment which has resulted from their ill advised policy. o liext month another vote must be cast in favor of municipal waterworks at the bond election in order to carry the proposition finally. o Recoveries from spinal meningitis under the new Flexner serum treatment are reported from various .cities. This frightful disease, one of the worst dreaded of childhood, is to be conquered, it now appears, just as diphtheria has been re lieved of its terrors. Every progressive physician owes it to himself to keep closely in touch with the development of this wonderful new cure for a malady hitherto regarded as almost hopeless. Never in historic times has there been a more wonderful combination of tin usual phenomena than occurred last night when Halley's comet shone so bril liantly in the western sky during the long period of the moon's total eclipse.

The foundation and base ment walls over a large part of the area of the big building. are already in place. Heavy work is being done in blasting the rock, and there is plenty of evidence of big things going on on the site of the new lodge. The location chosen is by all odds the best possible in the whole reservation. There will be a magnificent view around the whole circle of the horizon, and the view off to the westward over the White Sands and the Alamogordo plain to the Ban Andreas mountains will bft impressive beyond description. It is proposed now that the property owners in Cloudcroft organize a town government so that they can levy and collect taxes for public improvement pur poses. The railroad company will put in a main sewer and the property owners will be required to connect with it- The sanitary condition of the resort will be looked after as never before. It is proposed to put in cinder paths and board walks wherever needed, and it is hoped to instal a telephone exchange. A better class of cottages is being erected and a number of the older cottagers who have become fonder of Cloudcroft with each passing summer are making extensive im provements in their homes, so that for comfort arid convenience they will be prac tically equal to city houses. I Through cooperation on the part of property owners in Cloudcroft, a com paratively slight expenditure will add greatly to the attractiveness of the resort. It is necessary, in order that the new hotel be made a commercial success and that the railroad company be reimbursed for its outlay, that the crowds of sum mer visitors should be increased. This summer it is planned to instal various forms of amusement, and next year with the new hoiel in operation the resort should become recognized as one of the most delightful places of summer residence in the country. El Paso county is one of only 21 wet counties out of the 237 counties in Texas. o Mexican trade is increasing steadily, imports and exports each showing an improvement of $1,000,000 a month over the corresponding period of last year. The exported products of mining will run $10,000,000 this year ahead of last year. All over Mexico extensive works of public improvement are going on with a view to formal dedication or inauguration during the centennial this fall. No betterway could be found to celebrate a great occasion. It is told of Daniel Drew, gentleman farmer and founder of theological semin aries and benefactor of other religious institutions, that whenever he went to make a cattle sale, he fed the brutes salt, let them get good and thirsty, and then watered them just before the sale, thus adding about 50 pounds to the sell ing weight of every animal. This is the original of "stock watering." Drew told all about it in his diary, and devoutly wrote, "God keeps a full set of books. He always balances his accounts. I trust his bookkeeping," as he planned new methods to improve his chances of salvation. Auto. 1115 2020 0 116 Tttyri w i U HERALD TRAV ELING AGENTS.

N" "Women Voters Nauseating" Richard Barry Attends Denver Election With both feet on the neck of wom an's suffrage, with one finger in the eye of every woman voter in Colorado, and witl his voice ringing straight ahead of him, because he isn't afraid of any thing that has fists and walks, Richard Barry, war" correspondent ior the -La-uieb' Home Journal, :ays that suffrage is a curse to a state, and tnat because of sufirage in cdlorauo ana an utter absence or brotherly feeling, ours Js the most benighted State in the union, says L.eola Allard in the Denver Post. Beioie election Mr. Barry came to j Denver to investigate suffrage. He I came feeling that it wa. a curse, ana ho says he went away absolutely nauseated, after visiting the polling places on the hill all uay Tuesday. Here' are the things .that Mr. Barry said with a narrowing of his eyes, and a forcible hit upon the table near him. uhen he gave out an interview before leaving town: . "The essence of discipline is obedience. "Women can never be successful in poli tics because they are disobedient and they can't all be made over. Men's Respect for "Women. 'lt is the pleasure and the privilege of every true man to care for the wom en who come to him his wife, his daughters, his sisters and his mother and when women are put on an eco nomic equality with men they get out and assert by their actions that they can protect themselves, and men lose their respect for them. They take the blessed privilege of watching over .:i-d caring for them, away from their men. "Women in politics solicit votes from men. When they ask for his vote man either jollies them or refuses his vote, and the very idea is a degrading one. "There will be, and that before long, a secret agreement between the poli ticians of Colorado that tht-re are to be no women workers in politics. Trie men can accomplish this secretly, and they will. "The men of Denver, many of them prominent in politics and holding high offices, told me that they voted for women's suffrage, but that if they had it to do over again they would vote against it, and Work against it. Sights nt Polls Made Barry Sick. "The men will come to vote and work out their political schemes just the same as if- there: were no women allowed to vote. The women pledge themselves to work for a party and bring in votes, but they do not deliver the goods. Wom en do not win votes, although they may win promises of votes. "T wn; sickened by seeing women at the polls on election day trying to meet men on an equal ioonns- j.hcj uuuiu w hut thev made cheap, sickening at- I tempts. "Woman is mans superior in rausi ways, and she is needed, so she should remain that way and uplift the race; not try to. crawl down to the level of men and take away all the ideals of true manhood. "Suffrage has not made the least progress In the past 10 years. The rich women of New York who have gone into it have done so because they want a diversion. They haven't enough fol lowers to win, and suffrage will go Into a decline as sure as the sun sets. Last year it was at its height, and it will not make the strides ahead that the Colorado women say they think it will. It is doomed. "I have never seen such ill-breeding, such lack of refinement, such an en tire absrnce of tact, as I saw at the Broadw:.y theater when the women poli ticians of Denver met there when Miss Morgan was in Denver. The moment she left to catch her 10 oclock train, as she had planned to do before going to the meeting, one of the supposed pillars of Denver aris tocracy said things that were uncom plimentary to the guest, scarcely wait ing till she had passed out of the the ater door. Miss Tprgan never has made a public Speech, and no one had a right to say that she woufd make one. The statement was made here without consulting the visitor, and then she was chastised because she refused to speak. The visitor was called 'our dinner guest,' Instead of a distinguished visitor, or hovered, as long as I stayed mad; but always it got up and dusted, it's little dark blue graft was busted, when I (JhuxPl A QjfrVlk of this date, 1896) Ago Col. Anson Mills has a letter from Captain McDerby, who states that he will be here early next week to hold a conference regarding the proposed in ternational dam. Herbert Stevenson and Walter Vilas will return from Chicago next week and will be accorded a warm welcome. The Southern Pacific is still shipping heavy rails through El Paso for use in California. The G. A. R. was to have held a meet ing today to arrange for Decoration day exercises, but it was Impossible to se cure a quorum. Engineer Campbell came in today from the Corralitos right of way 40 miles out. W. H. Grandover had a narrow escape from drowning while swimming near the floodgates this afternoon. A number of his companions pulled him ashore and rolled him on a barrel. The wind blew hard this morning and, while it raised considerable dust it cooled the atmosphere considerably. Mr. and Mrs. Max "Weber gave a moonlight party to their friends at their Juarez home last night. and Then Makes This Declaration. any of the other things she might have been called. Benighted State. "Colorado is the most benighted state in the union today. There is an utter absence of brotherly feeling that exisrs in a community where generation after generation of families live and die in the same community. It's everybody for himself, and the devil for the hind most. Nobody seems to feel any kind ness or brotherly love for "his neighbor. Then suffrage is leading the women to a lower plane, and that spells anything but success." Mr. Barry pointed out scornfully some of the prize members of the Denver women's political organizations, and said that it was the leaders, the sup posed cultured women of politics, who had made the bad breaks he had spoken of since his arrival. "What Rich Office Holder Told Him. . "I've been through four wars," Air. Barry said titbughtfully, "and T can honestly say that I have nevr se--n sight." in the thickest of a battle that were such a horror to me, so nauseat ing, as those I saw at the polls on elec tion day, but if I told you vnat they are, 1 would spoil my story for my paper, and I can't do that, you know." Mr. Barry told a story of a rich, prom inent office holder of Denver whose po litical career isn't half done, according to the story. "He told me," and Barr hit the table Avith his fist and looked earnest, "that his wife never had voted . and never would. That she didn't want lu vuie, ana tnat ne would forbid it if she dia. ne auued that he was a politi cian and was ambitious-, and that wom en in politics were against him be cause his wife wouldn't mix with them and wouldn't vote. Then he threw nut j his chest and said that if he had to d- pena upon his wife for his success, upon her cheapening herself to. win votes for him, that he would go through life with his ambitions unrealized. "Women are women, and they can't be made to forget all the little peculiari ties of their sex. (Mr. Barry would talk the same to a fighting suffragette. They showed that to my satisfaction at that Broadway theater meeting. They couldn't forget the fact that M'iss Mor gan wouldn't make an exception of this city and speak in public, and they couldn't go on with their meeting in a big broad way without referring to her ljeaving to catch a train she had to leave on, but they resorted to pink tea meth ods, and gossipy remarks as soon as Miss Morgan's back was turned. Anv one can see that such tactics cannot, never could and never will make for success." WITH Xhe Exchaa? es EL PASO THE MECCA. From Las Cruces (N. M.) Citizen.

Not only do the local building and loan associ ations have total assets of 3785,000,000, nearly as much as the capital stock of all the national banks In the country, but they also represent that huge amount in the savings of the people.

Charlotte has subscribed for 105 per capita in building and loan tcck, and this subscription ha paid un S45. Pennsylvania leads all the states and Philadelphia is the foremost city in building and loan activity, but Charlotte is entitled to first place when size and all conditions are con sidered. Born In England. The building and loan association was born in the brain of an English work ingman in 17S1, when the first build ing societv" was organized on the co operative plan. In 1812 this Idea was developed in England and the associa tions became numerous. In 1831 the idea was brought to America by Eng lish emigrants, and the first American building and loan association d.s u -anized Tin Frankford, the manufactur- f-8!11.: If Snomhia. lts local ing suuuiu vi j. w i growth was rapid and the results were highly satisfactory. By 1835 the idea had been transplanted into New Eug land. But on account of the purely lo cal character of the association they have not spread rapidly, and their greatest development has been in more or less isolated communities. "Was Lucrative for Swindlers. The growth was steady and healthy, however, until about twenty years ago. m. ..... .tmKvr nt on-nnllpd na J.nen J. trcai. uu""1" y- , , tinnoi" hnilrtlnE- and loan associations nV nl T In their very essence they snrane UT. in tneir veij violated the cardinal principle of pru dence which had been the spirit of the local associations the concentration of all activity under the very eyes ot tne . .. cooDeratlve shareholuers Many of the "national" societies were mere swindles, and most of those which were honest went down in the financial storm of 1S93.

No better example of the work which properlv conducted building and 1ot.u associations can do for a community is to be found than Charlotte, where the TTnited States l.ge is meeting today. Her two leading cit'r.nns haveJed the work and encouraged Its development. Perhaps the most prominent man in Charlotte, and one of the le-idlng manu facturers of the south, is P. A. Tomn kin.. He made his start in 'if whon workincr as : mechanic in Eethlehem, Pennsj-lvania. He crtdits the fact that he eet out of overalls to the building ard loan association of Bethlehem, into which he paid a small weekly saving, which became the nest etcs of a large fortune. The head of the largest building and loan association in Charlotte, the chief promoter of the association work there. and vice president of the United States league is S. Wittkowsky. He landed in the United States with only one dollar In his pocket and he went to Charlotte as a clerk in a store. He, too, made his first :vlng through the building and loan association. For twenty-eight years he has devoted his time and at tention to, the work of fostering the building ahd loan associations of Char lotte and the country. He has not taken one cent of pay for his services, but is in the work as a missionary, pure and simple. It is to these two men that the prominence of the building and loan association in the social, indus- that these motions are all right in a legislative session, but not while outN on so delicate a mission as cutting the neighbor's barb wire fence. o "SAVE THE FAIR.' From Las Cruces (N. M.) Citizen. "Save the El Paso fair, says The Her ald. Yes, by all means; only five thou sand are needed to assure it this fall and we'll wager a six month's subscrip tion to a doughnut that The Herald's urgent request to action will be heeded by the business men and that the money will be secured inside of a week. o IT'S PLENTY AVET UNDERGROUND.

"Within a few years this entire section will be settled by home makers and transformed into a farming region of wonderful richness." And what is true in New Mexico is true in Arizona. Plenty of water may be had for all purposes in this territory simply by digging for it.

Haskit Erected Many Homes, trial and financial life of Charlotte must be credited Saturday Night, a Gala Occasion. If the delegates to the United States league will remain in Charlotte until Saturday they will see things which will make even professional building j and loan men open their eyes. ine streets will be crowded with working men and women, white and black, old and young. They have been paid off and they are ready to spend their money. It is the great Saturday night. Everybody is gay and the carnival spir it is in the air "it looks like a big night tonight." But no one goes into the saloons, for the very good reason that there are no saloons in which to go. No one seems to be intoxicated with anything more than the joy of living. But they all have money and they are ail bound down the street to the same section of the city. What are they going to do? "Billy Mnlone' AVell Known. "Wanta shoot some craps?" whispers a slouchy and ill-dressed negro to one of the passing throng. "Come on. We've gotta game." "You am talkin' to me, niggah," comes the reply from the colored gentleman with the cash in his pocket, "Ise gwine to pay Ole Billy Malone." That is the reason why Charlotte is mere prosperous than any other town o its size In the south, that is the reason why more of its workingmen c7n their own home, that is the rea son why the "hands" in Charlotte cot ton mills are not nomadic, that is the reason why Charlotte negroes stay out of trouble and out of poverty, that is the reason why Charlotte is the Char lotte of today. It is Ole Billy Malone. "The- Mecklenburg Building and Loan Association" or any other sort of build ing and loan association was too much of a mouthful for the Tarheel negro. The first one was tolled into paying his j money into the little window every I Saturday. It wasn't long before he found himself a landed proprietor, the owner of a house and lot. Other ne groes looked upon himand envied his high and mighty estate. From the su pernal heights of his dignity he con descended to tell them that the build ing and loan association did the work. "BuiCding and loan, building and loan. Billy Malone. villy Malone." echoed the other negroes and they began to save their money.

Newspaper Otves for Existence. But the work of the associations in Charlotte has not been confined to cot ton mill workers and negroes. Every class of people in the community is largely represented among the share holders of the local associations. The I cl'.v. was built through a building and loan association. Every Saturday af terroon the netrr6 Dorter takes the weekly payments for the Observer, for the editorial staff, for the counting room force, for the printers and pressmen, and goes down the street to make the weekly deposit which is paying for the building in Avhich he works, the homes in which his fellow employes live and for-bis own landed estate. Built Many Philadelphia Homes. Philadelphia, where the first Ameri can building and loan association was organized and where the' associations are now greatest in number, has more working men living in their own homes than any other city in the world. Sev eral years ago a telegrapher left Phila delphia for New York. He found his working associates In the metropolis to be thriftless, unhappy, nomadic and nothing like so well-to-do as the teleg raphers of Philadelphia. He looked about" and found that none of them was saving anything. f He started a building and loan so ciety among the telegraphers and after a few years condition: in that office became what they had been in Phila delphia. The men saved and had some thing to live for and work for. It is this kind of contentment and security which makes Philadelphia "sleepy." Dayton. Ohio, is another city where the building and loan associations have enabled the workingmen to own their homes. Baltimore, also, has made great progress. The cities where these asso ciations have flourished are the cities in which the laboring men have pros pered. Great is the name of Ole Billy Malone. Tomorrow, "Railroad Claim Agents."

Kditor El Paso Herald: Notwithstanding the specious argu ments presented and sought to be graft ed on the minds of the people that the stockyards in the second ward will be of benefit, it is a very difficult matter to make the vast numbers who opposed and will always continue to so do, the location of the same and who exercised their special privilege of protest and petition as guaranteed by the consti tution of the United States, to take that view. Notwithstanding they apparently "lost out" at the present time. In their laud able and honest effort to prevent the location of such a disease breeding plan, not only in that ward but which will be inimical to the health of the entire city, they are none the less de termined in their righteous opposition and where there '.ere hundreds who op posed there are now thousands. The people do not want any such dis ease breeding spots in the city, as they argue that plenty of room oould be had outside for such purposes. The same people firmly believe that the stock yards are but preliminary opening and that in the near future they will have to combat none boiling Abe Martin Nothin' fails as often as a sure cure Did you ever notice thr butcher weigh his hand an say seventy-two cents? yards; the manufacturing of chemical fertilizers, and all else that detracts from a healthy residential point. If such is to be the result where can the residents find room for the erection of house to Hve in? They know it is use less to think of ever having means enough to buy -lots and build north of the- tracks, hence their opposition not only from a sanitary point, but it be comes vital in this respect- The location is oiiimed to be on tl-e verge of eternity and that that location !s not densely inhabited. The noisome smells and the millions of flies and other insects it will produce will not be confined to the socalled Isolated sec tion but will reach over and permeate all parts of the city as the winds list.
