EQ1JALITY of opportunity, equality oeiuie wc -, v.- j
these are the guaranties Americans enjoy as a result of the work of our
forefathers of 1776. The Declaration of Independence voices the yearning of
heart and soul for freer flight, and the Constitution gives form and permanence
to the Idea which inspired the men of the da colonies. . ,
And with the" equalities came" the liberties-liberty of conscience, liberty of
speech, liberty of assembly, liberty of choice, liberty of effort. For inequality
me tjt barriers, sumptuary Jaw, fixed social caste prejudice, aristocratic
oppression, a political priesthood, and privileged classes. The Declaration is a re
volt agaist these things, and in its essential principles it is vital today.
But with the declaration of equality, and the assumption of the liberties or
freemen, there came also the obligation of duty, the interdependence of social
raits, the brotherhood of man, the bond of the citizen to the state.
In those days, as now, there' was much shouting about equality, there was
much feinting eloquence about liberty-and much Jamaica rum consumed-but
--hen the idea'of duty to fellow men, the idea of obligation to the social body
constituting the community or the state, was brought forward, the crowds melted
2way men sniffed, and turned their backs, and the loyal leaders who kept bright
the fires of patriotic principle, were left to urge duty upon empty seats.
Equality, liberty, would have become anarchy if there had not been fraternity
nd organic energy to direct, control, and employ them wisely. .Equality may not
te equity liberty may not be law. There is an equality that is false and unjust;
there is a liberty that is the license of barbarism and of savagery; it takes co
operative organization to create a state, and that requires a weighing of the
equalities against one another to make them equitable, a matching of the liberties
against one another to establish the planes of contact and the limitations of in
terference. The liberty of one ends where another's begins; the equality we talk
about is not equality of natural endowments but of artificial restraint; both are
idle vapor unless there be a vital democracy in the state, a universal participation
in self government, which is restraint for the mutual welfare, self denial for the
mutual welfare, wisely directed labor for the mutual welfare.
Of such the signers of the Declaration of July 4, 1776, dreamed. For such
they drew the sword. The power of regeneration lay within themselves, just as
it lies within us today. By just so much as we fail to realize the fraternity
of a democratic state the mutual obligations of citizenship by just so much have
we failed to use the liberty and equality our fathers sought to insure to us and
IKCHEASED demand for farm products and food is given by the congressional
'commission on the cost of living as one of the chief factors in the present high
average. Americans are consuming more farm products per capita than ever
before, and they are demanding all the time a better and better grade of food
naterial- And although land steadily rises in value, the average crop per acre
decreases, so that prices tend steadily to rise.
Herein lies a suggestion for our valley land owners. "We are letting our land
lie idle and unproductive while' all the time the demand for our (products is in
creasing, prices are rising, and land values rise so that the annual loss includes
both crops that might have been produced and interest that steadily accrues on
The valley should be brought into cultivation now, for then we should be in
DQsition to take advantage of the great advance in land values sure to come with
the completion of the dam.. Cultivated land, two to five years under crops', will
be worth two to ten times as much as raw land, and will have a ready market
when raw land moves slowly.
We are enjoying a fair water supply this year, and the chances are that we
EhaE have good seasons -until the dam is built and we get the benefit of the
stored water. The river has failed us only occasionally, and this is the logic of
the situation: that even if we-should lose some crops one year out of the next
three, we should still be far ahead on the investment necessary to bring our lands
The wastefulness of our present policy is easily demonstrable by a little sum
in Arithmetic. We have 150,000 acres more to bring into cultivation. If the
annual product were only $65 an acre, which is ridiculously low, the total annual
product would be $1 0.000,000. In other words, we are losing enough each year to
build the entire Rio Grande project.
Our policy of neglect is not worthy of people of good sense.
Tiie Battle Of
EX, PASO'S celebration of Independence day was a glorious success. In line
with the safe and sane idea which has swept the country, El Paso planned
a celebration by the municipal government at public expense, supplemented
ov games and other forms Gf -entertainment There was band music all day long,
either down town or at the pleasure park a few miles out. A basket picnic fol
lowing the flag raising gave a sort of old fashioned 'tinge to the day's observance
that was thoroughly enjoyed.
Patriotic ceremonies were given due place; and the day's historical significance
was not forgotten, yet the people's great annual holiday was made memorable for
general entertainment and pleasure. One important result of the new plan is a
decrease in fire risk and in danger to' the youngsters. When other forms of
diversion are provided, the boys and girls are less apt to want to blow themselves
up. There will be -fewer dead and wounded this year than usual from the battle
of Independence day, and there has been no retarding of patriotic impulse.
El Paso has thus set the precedent for a Fourth of July on which the people
can show their patriotism without slaughtering and maiming themselves, their
friends and the public. The city council by taking steps to provide wholesome
amusement andf- entertainment throughout the day for theentire public, took a
step calculated to turn the people away from the practices of the past, when
vannens, shotgu, anvils and firecrackers rent the air with their noise and, if
they did sot injure anybody, racked the nerves of hundreds of nervous sufferers
and sick people. f
The Tjregram as arranged in El Paso did not entirely do away with the an
noyance and danger of indiscriminate firing of explosives, but it undoubtedly did
away with a great deal of the usual rowdyism, by giving the people something to
6.0 by attracting them to the concerts and the public exercises.
Tireworks at night, properly supervised, afford a beautiful close for a well
celebrated day, bat fireworks throughout the day, fired off promiscuously any
where and everywhere, with a reckless disregard of the property and personal
rights of others, are a nuisance, and, instead of makingthe Fourth "of July a day
of joy- and gladness, these practices have made it to many a day of horror and
The value and advantage of a safe and sane Fourth are that it leaves the
people physically whole when it lr over and patriotically proud of their great
country or sensible people.
The ministers who are preaching a burning hell, are not frightening anybody.
Toe many of our people have been down in San Antonio and Houston lately and-"
have become acclimated.

The Fourth passed off quietly. There
were only- a few scorched by premature
explosions of firecrackers and two of
these were society women on Kansas
street, who spent the day from early
morn with hands done up in bandages.
The youngsters had lots of fun at the
expense of Chinese laundrymen, placing
cannon crackers in the mud- in front of
the emporiums. The explosion would
spatter the places all over with mud
and in some instances clothes, out on
the roofs to dry, "suffered also.
The bicycle races were a decided suc
cess and largely attended. Several rec
ords for the west were broken and no
accidents marred the speeding.

an account of the sensational death of
his brother. Sextus, aged 22, in Dallas.
The brother was In an automobile
with several companions, when the ma

was sitting In the front seat and the
shock threw him against the pole. His
skull was so badly crushed that he died
half an hour later.
Mr. Kendall nearly fainted at the
news, then broke down and cried like a

deplorable accident. He left immedi

because the different numbers every
