STILL the water question hangs fire. It seems as if business men like the
members of the city administration and the offficers of the water com
pany ought to be able to reach an agreement, when it is considered that
the negotiations have been pending for a year and a half. The difference is
'over the amount of money the city shall retain out of the bond issue in order
to "make the improvements immediately necessary in the plant. The water com
pany is inclined to be very independent about it, but the water company should
not forget that it was mistaken about the ability to borrow an additional $500,
000 on the plant without involving the city's credit, and it is right that a spirit
of cooperation should now prevail for the good of the community.
It is estimated that for $76,600 the plant can be brought up to a high de
gree of efficiency to supply the city exclusively and abundantly with mesa
water until the spring of 1912. We are now getting about 2,000,000 gallons
daily from the mesa, and it "will require doubling this supply in order to insure
the jezclusive mesa service through the nest year and a half. The new expendi
tures required in order to make the mesa amply adequate and safe include
eight new wells, an additional air compressor, a new 6,000,000 gallon pump (in
suring duplication), condenser, boiler, piping, and new building. Another $75,000
or so would go far to bring the system of mains up to standard, and would at
least take care of work of pressing necessity. Probably $150,000 or $175,000 is
about all the city or the company would wisely spend this year even if the
money were in hand. If something like this amount were available it would
be safe to go ahead, for inside of a year funds would "become available from
the operations of the plant, and moreover the city's borrowing power would
have increased through the increase of values.
If therefore the water company will consent to take this much of the pay
ment money in some form of obligation other than the city's bonds, part of the
proceeds of the bonds can be used to build up the plant. The company is under
no obligations to do this, and indeed it is not bound to sell at all, but on the other
hand such a proposal is not unreasonable in view of the. company's failure to make
good on the additional plant bonding scheme, and it furnishes a fair basis for final
Further delay is sure to be costly to the city And likely to be disastrous. The
plan of purchase has twice been ratified by the people at elections called for the
purpose, and it does not appear that any good end can be served by holding up
the negotiations any longer.
Let us have new bridges across the Rio Grande, but let them be built through
the cooperation of the sister cities and the property owners interested, on a scale
broad enough to guarantee suitable structures of reinforced concrete, not less than
70 feet wide, of graceful and artistic design, substantial, satisfying, and lasting.

hands at an even better price, due to the fact that an individual wanted it for the
particular purposes of his business.
While such important trades are being concluded in city property, valley land
is also moving. As yet there is comparatively little buying by actual farmers for
development, but considerable interest is shown in the speculative side of f the mar
ket. Outside capital is being attracted to some extent, and it is fair to assume
that the great work of land improvement, railroad building, and colonizing Jaull
be under way before very long.
El Paso capital for a year past has been tied up in business extensions and
in public and private improvements. There has been little floating capital for in
vestment, and for some time to come we shall have to depend on outside money,
for the general work of promotion. The very best argument we can use, however,
to attract the interest of outside investors, is our own faith in our own projects
nd our own future, as best expressed through our heavy and continuous improve
ment operations and by business extensions. There is big work going on, and
there is big work ahead. - f

advance their cause by misrepresentation of fact and by indiscriminate
abuse; rlo one taking the trouble to read the Aldrich statement can doubt its
truth or the flimsy foundation of the Bristow charges. And The Herald is holding
no brief for Aldrich, but in this case the attacks of one prominent senator upon
the chairman of the senate finance committee, charging in effect that the framer
of the tariff bill fixed schedules to line
public, is a reflection upon the American people and the American system
Therefore the explanation by the accused senator possesses far. more than
personal interest. Bristow is a little wild eyed anyhow, and with all due respect
to his splendid services as a prosecutor of grafters and a pursuer of wrong doers,
he is not the only honest or able man in public life today.

Between 1S15 and 1S30 the demand

not love him and never shall. Is it my
dut3' to obey them?"
It is a delicate situation to handle,
and I do not like to offer advice con
trary to parents' wishes; but in case of
this kind I must confess that my sym
pathy is with the girl.
If the parents made a loveless mar
Tiage, their love for their daughter
should prompt them to do all in their
power to save her from tjie same fate.
If they married for love, they should
see to it that she has the same chance
for happiness as they had.
If parents see that their girl is be
coming interested in some man, who is
unworthy, It Is most natural that they
should oppose the match vigorously.
Open Opposition Often Fails.
At the same time. ' open opposition
sometimes drives a "wilful girl head
long into the fate from which those
who love her are trying to save her.
In come cases, ridicule has been
known to succeed where all else failed.
LoA-e flees before ridicule, and, If the
girl can be made to see the man in a
ridiculous light, the chances are that
she will come to her senses.
I know of one case where gentle ridi

he said. "My mother thought m much

She longed y t dreaded to turn an 1
speak to him. But what could she say?
She could not thank him for buying
the vase, although she knew he had
done it for her.
It was two months ago that they had
quarreled, and since then they had not
met. Such a pitiful little quarrel! She
had listened to a foolish storj- Marie
Vandivier had told of him, and then
refused to hear him.
She had been cruelly unjust, she soon
realized that. But he had been too
deeply hurt to make any effort at re
conciliation, and it was false pride that
kept her from writing him, for she
owed him thi. -tr admission .if her
unjustness and of the utter untruth of
Marie Vandivier's story.
AVhnt Did It Mean?
And now did this, the buying of the
vase, mean that he had forgiven her,

But she did not answer. She was

"We we must take very good care
of that," she murmured without look-
t prince Mebternich, a resolute foe of
constitutionalism. But the kings ana
princes soon forgot the constitutions
they had granted, and very little real
change took place in the system of
government in any of the German states
the princes were supreme and the
people were nothing.
tDuring this same period the general
desire for German unity grew rapidly.
Few Germans were satisfied with the
loose confederation which included 39
states rdpresented in the permanent
diet sitting at Frankfort-on-Main. This I
was organized after the congress at
Vienna. In the act of confederation the
39 states agreed never to declare war i
against each other, or to form foreign
alliances which would in any -way pre
judice the Interests of a German state.
But the rivalry of Austria and Prussia
and the unwillingness of Bavaria and
Wurttemberg did not permit the res
toration of the empire.
Conditions Similar to Ours.
In this era the affairs of the German
states bore a marked resemblance to
the condition of the American states
following the revolution and preceding
th6 adoption of the constitution, when
the 12 states consented to the articles

The El Paso Herald says: " A man
who cannot read In some language a Sf c

constitution or some other article to be
chosen by the judges of election. In
