Commodity Prices Steadily Drop edicated Soft $ j .Brinks a Menace By Miss H. Giace Franklin, Director the Woman's Charity Association School for Mothers A SHARP readjnstnent in prices of commodities is in progress. Practically all commodities entering into the cost of living have decreased to a marked extent as compared with prices last winter and to an even greater degree as cempared with prices a year ago. Hice fcas gone down 25 percent within a year; cotton, more than 6 percent; -wool Sas gene down 14 percent; com has gone down 32 percent; wheat has dropped xcere than 25 percent since last winter. Illuminating oil is 15 percent cheaper than it was a year ago. Of food products meats are the only items showing higher prices; there has been a slight increase in nearly all meats, fresh and packed. crer prices a year ago, and six months ago. Of manufacturers' materials, pig iron n.is gone down more than 16 percent since January; iron bars are down 9 percent; fefiets have arepped nearly 10 percent since last winter; structural iron and steel hare drepped 13 percent since last October and 10 percent since last March. Sole leather is off 5 percent. On practically every commodity in the list, both for ex part sad for dssnestic consumption, a substantial reduction has taken place within the last few months. The readjustment of prices to a lower basis continues The consuming power of the people had. got to a low point and high prices were seriously disturbing trace conditions. These two things combined to bring about a decrease in con inptiGn, and. production decreased in torn. A marked reduction in average pnees was found necessary in order to stimulate trade. Sharp competition has irarted ordinary business throughout the country, with a general tendency toward progressive price reductions. Lower prices will unquestionably stimulate trade and increase the consumption of commodities, thereby restoring the normal bafcmce and enabling all Indnstries to produce in proportion to their manufacturing feemttes.-i , Good'fcrops are now practicallTrassnred. The national-production of wealth this year will be very large with corresponding consuming power, and there should be jl general industrial revival now that the obstacle of excessive high prices has been removed, o I' Hartford, Conn, is boasting that it is soon going to see a real airship flying over the heads of the people, the first Sne- such a sight was ever witnessed in that oM Ifew England town. The navigator is Charles K. Hamilton, the man Ihe Herald hadIy over El Paso several months ago. The following is taken from Farm ers' Bulletin 393, U. S. department, of agriculture: x During- the last 20 years a large number of soft drinks containing caf fein and smaller or greater quantities of coca leaf and kola nut products have been placed upon the market. Prepara tions of this class, on account of insuf ficient information, were formerlv look ed upon as harmless, but they are now known to be an impending evil. Centu ries before cocain was introduced as a remedial agent, wonderful accounts of the energy creating properties ,of coca leaves -were chronicled. The phenomenal endurance attributed to the Peruvians and others was often ascribed to the stimulating effects pro duced by the chewing of coca leaves, and this idea has been widely exploited. It is believed to some extent at present that the use of cocain taken internally produces a sense of exhilaration, and the amount of muscular and mental ! power appears to be temporarily in creased. Impetus was given to this belief by the enthusiastic report of the virtues of this drug, published not only in medical literature but in secular press as well. Cocain is one of the most insidious and dangerous habit forming drug at I present knowii. Many lives have been wrecked and many crimes have been committed as a result of its use, and strenuous efforts are being made to curtail its employment. The amount present in certain soft drinks is small, to be sure, but such an insidious, habit forming drug- certainty has no place whatever in these products- The pres ence of tropococain. an ally of cocain, has also been established. Xot only is it most pernicious to add cocain to soft drinks in any quantity (usually in the form of coca leaf extract", but even the use of coca leaf extract s manipulated as to reduce the amount of cocain, or eliminate it altogether, must still be looked upon as a questionable practice, because any product or name which would suggest the presence of cocain or its allies, by taste or otherwise, must ... . w . u....u. iiii.iuv.m.u JL i.

The kola nut -was prominently brought forward about 25 years ago as an agent for the relief of fatigue, bur in this respect It has been a disappoint ment. For some time it was thought that the nut possessed some peculiar substance which accounted for this characteristic, but searching investiga- lion 01 modern history.

Asquith, as head of the government and the Lib- Mr. Balfour, as head and the Conservative party, may result in a compromise which will postpone the culmination of the crisis. But as soon as another elec tion is held, and that cannot be much later than next May when the new king will be crowned, all of the old i&sues will come up again and the struggle between privilege and aristocracy on possesses, therefore, appears to be duu largely. If not solely, to this constitu ent. In fact,at present mixtures of caffein and burnt sugar are extensively used in preparing various caffein bear inr soft drinks, Instead of the kola nut and its extracts. The caffein used is derived chiefly from waste tea leaves. The virtue of coca leaves and kola nuts have been exploited together, and it was only natural that they -should be combined in preparations which would represent the purported virtues of I both-. Such combinations were made with the result thafuite a number of so called soft drinks now on the market contain both the habit forming agents cocain and caffein. It Is not uncommon to find persons addicted to the use of medicated soft drinks. It is also a well konwn fact that many factory em ployes, stenographers, typewriters, and others subject to mental or nervous strain spend a part of their earnings for drinks of this character. In passing it may be of interest to note that life insurance companies are considering the status of soft drink habitues as future risks. Various argument have been ad British social conditions have not kept pace with the progress of modern times, and in no other country of the western world, except Russia, is there to be seen such unequal distribution of wealth. Nearly one-third of the people constantly are under the shadow of the spectre of starvation. British political institutions, for the first time, are not altogether under the control of the landlord class, a clas tlons showed that its chief active agent composed of a very few of "the people .- .c.,. . navr virtue me urug wno own nearlv all of tho land in,- rise of an industrial democracy which is able to control, at times, a majority of the house of commons and, there fore, the government, in opposition to the wishes of the land owning, gov erning class, presages an Inevitable- ir repressible class conflict. Foreljrn War to Restore Cr.edif. The party of privilege and aristoc racy, frightened by the social democ racy, leans hard upon the past and looks to a foreign war as a means of restoring British prestige ,and power, and as an excuse to sacrifice" social pro gress upon the altar of patriotism. It is not the first time that Tories, British and others, have sought to drown the voices of a protesting proletariat in the din of the drums of war. And this time they have the valid excuse that there really is a German menace, in dustrial if not political. The party of privilege and aristocracy fans the flames of German hatred and appears to seek an excuse for war by making much of preparations for war. According to this party, and in the phrase of Kipling, the whole duty of the people is to "pay, pay, pay," that the British navy may multiply: and to I "frmn fr-orviTN --. t -.

It is well known that parents, as a rule withhold tea and coffee from their children, but having no knowledge of the presence of cocain, caffein, or other deJeterious agents in soft drinks, they umvittingly permit their children to be harmed by their use. Manufacturers of drinks of this class, containing. co cain, have been sucessfully prosecuted, for example, Koca Xola. Celerv Cola. that very small amounts of morphine Wiseola. Pillsbury's Koko. Kola-Ade, or cocain, or even a suggestion as to j Kos-Kola, Cafe-Coca and Koke. The two territories cannot be too careful in choosing the men to their con- j stitctional conventions. The new states are going to have to operate a long time "nnSer those constitntions. These are clog days and every dog seems to be having his day dodging the dog catcher. The ones that fail won't see any more dog days hereabouts. o Hot? Well, whoever heard of a cold July anyhow? And, besides, what would Clondcroft do if it didn get hot somewhere else? (From The Herald of this date, 1896) V I Jeff needn't feel so badly about it. Lots of men have got worse drubbings for less money; raany have even paid a fine afterwards. o If Johnson retires it will be because he wants to; not because some other pug makes him; not till they grow some better ones than they have now. 'The Record Of the School Board THE report of the grand jjury on public school affairs fully confirms all that The Herald had to say prior to the recent school board election concerning mismanagement of public school finances and pubHc school business generally. As the grand jury report says, "There are many practices now indulged in, or at least were indulged in by the school board, which practices are pernicious in themselves, in that they lead to unwarranted extravagance." The grand jury gees further and says, "This unwarranted extravagance merits the periodical investigation of the grand jury.'1' Thus the declarations of The Herald prior to the electien, based on knowledge of facts, are now in effect given public official sanction. Fortunately, it looks as if we are about to see the last of the present system of public school management The city council will apply to the legislature for an amendment to our charter, providing for the appointing of school trustees by the mayor with the consent of the council, in the same manner as the other city officials are appointed. This is the only logical and practical way to manage our school affairs. The so-called "elections" are a perfect farce. There is no real expression of popular choice, and in fact no opportunity for such expression. Under our present system there is no way to place the responsibility for mis management of school affairs. When the mayor appoints the school board, there "etiH he fixed and concentrated responsibility. If o mayor could be elected in El Paso under our present system of government, who would dare abuse his power over the schools through exercising improperly the right of appointing trustees. For the purpose of completing the record The Herald reprints below a portion f the report of the grand jury just rendered: x x..nn.i. r z .u , - .. -- - - .

People Impoverished. The party of industry and democracy, appalled by the poverty of the people, seeVs to revise the political institu tions of the country so that the privi leged aristocracy may not have the power absolutely to thwart the pro gressive will and wishes of the nation. The party of industry and demoray proposes to maintain the British com mercial supremacy, despite the rivalry of all competitors, by so improving the condition of the British workman that British wares actually will show that superiority of workmanship which has been the boast of the nation since the The financial ele ment is not a partisan in politic,' but it always is Interested. In Great Brit ain the financial element is Interested in privilege on the one side and In in dustry on the other, but it cares noth ing whatever for either the aristoc racy or the democracy. Kow in actual political practice it came about that the Liberals had a large majority of the house of com mons. In the course of three or four years the house passed many progres sive measures, only to see them de feated in the house of lords. Since the time of Oliver Cromwell the commons had exercised sole and complete con trol over the revenues and expenditures of the government. But until 1907 the commons had been controled by the landlords. In 1908 -when the government intro duced the annaul budget It was found to contain a revolutionary provision for a tax on land. Contrary to the consti tutional precedents of three centuries, the house of lords refused to pass the budget. Parliament "was dissolved and the. whole question "was referred to the people In the general election of last January. But the issue was not clear. The Liberals attempted to make their fight on the Issue of Peers vs. People, but the Conservatives countered "with the demand for tariff reform, which in Great Britain means protection, and "with the German war scare, while re ligion, the liquor question and a great many other questions became mixed up in the struggle. It was one of the most exciting campafgns in the his tory of popular elections. "When the polling "was over it was found that the government might stay in power as the result of a coalition with the labor party and the Irish Na tionalists, the -Irish possessing- the , power to end the government's career at any time by voting with their ene- j mies, the Tories and Unionists. People's "Wishes Respected. -Political chaos threatened, but the Lateral leaders decided before all else to insist that the house of commons has complete and absolute power In all matters of taxation and revenue, en tirely free from the action or will of the house of lords. This proposal -was known as the abolition of the veto. The lords passed the Lloyd George budget, land taxes and all, in obedience to the will of the people as expressed in the election. Then both parties squared themselves for a great constitutional battle, know ing that parliamentary action must be followed by another general appeal to the country. The Liberals -were about . .

Mayor Alexander, of Los Angeles, has sent a message to the legislation com mittee of the city council urging- an ordinance designed to prevent boxing bouts of every description In public.

From Arizona (Phoenix) Democrat. The Elks' special, the Jeffries-Johnson prize fight, the opening of the A. & C. railroad, the Roosevelt dam celebra tion and the Fisher-Hughes rebellion are occupying the center of the stage this week. So it is that the party of privilege and aristocracy looks forward to a war abroad as the salvation of th empire from foreign foes and as the conserver of Its own power at home, while the party of industry and democ racy looks forward to a practical revo lution at home, o that there need be no fear, either of armed Invader or of privileged plutocracy. Political Parties Orcrnnixed. But the organized political parties of G-eat Britain are not so sharply and cleanly divided. Representatives or both the aristocrats and the democ racy are to be found both on the gov ernment and the opposition benches at Westminster. Yet it is true that the Liberal party, now In power, is con troled largely by the democratic ele ment, while the Conservative party Is more responsive to aristocratic im pulses. Tet Mr. Asqulth, as the head of the Liberal government always must consider the Whiggish aristocrats still left among his followers and must not go too far in the direction of utter democracy; while Mr. Bairour always must remember that there are liberal Unionists behind him who are not yet thoroughgoing Tories. vented what thrfeatened to become a serious race riot because of Jeffries's defeat. powerful than ever, and just about as reliably conservative.
