Tri-State Telephone Com
pany To Connect Bisbee
and El Paso.
Bisbee, Ariz., Aug. 22. Bisbee was
greatly alramed when the explosion of
an oil lamp caused a fire in the Zwil
lig boarding house. Mrs. Zwilllg
saved her two children by fighting her
way through the flames. A group of
houses, which were endangered, were
abandoned by their occupants. The
.quick action of the fire department
got the fire under control in a com
paratively short tinie. The loss is es
timated at $500.
The announcement made by manager
H. W. Bellard, of the Tri-State Tele
phone and Telegraph company, that
within a short time Bisbee will be able
to talk with El Paso and other points
in Texas and New Mexico, has been a
source of much enthusiasm here. It

in jail until Monday, when he left

spondency caused by bad health.

dition. In view of the many cases of run
aways frequently occurring in Bisbee,
the city authorities are proceeding
with rigor to enforce the city ordi
nance against the practice of allowing
horses arid teams to stand untied in
the streets. As a result two drivers
were arrested and fined. .

El Paso Grocers Say the
Kansas Dealers and Farm
ers Blame the Hen.
What is the. matter -with Kansas?
This -way of punctuating it bids fair
to come into vogue again. Residents
used to put the want-to-knorv sign after
it. in the old days -when they really
-wished to locate the hoodoo. Then a
man came along 'named White and said:
"What is the matter with Kansas?" the
answer being 10,000 nothings.
But usage makes right In the use of
punctuation, and that is the "way local
dealers in eggs are putting it up to
Kansas jobbers of the town, "What is
the matter with Kansas? They -want to
know. A member of a firm of El Paso
grocers states that his firm and other
local dealers are getting only about 50
percent of the eggs ordered from Kan
sas points, and as a result eggs have
risen five cents per dozen in the short
space of a -week, selling now at 30
cents per dozen.
The people over in Kansas lay It on
the hens. They say that the hen has
stopped laying earlier this year than
ever known before, which In the belief
of forecasters, Tvho belfeve in signs,
is a sure sign of an early and a hard
t inter. Eggs are wont to seek a high
er level in the fall, but it is a new ex
perience for the hens to stop their out
put so early. The price is likely to rise
again soon as the casual factor in the
advance is more than local in character.
Common Carriers Committed Will Report
Favorably on the Bill Being
Considered by It.
Austin. Texas, Aiijr. 22. The bill of
lading measure, whirli is the same as
that offered in the house at the third
Bpecial session just closed, will be re
ported favorably by the house commit
tee on common carriers, which held a
special session. The bill provides that
railroads shrtll be responsible if agents
are nt diligent in seeking to discover
any forgery.
the American's were Englishmen in all
but allegiance to the crown, and the
parties of Hamilton and Jefferson would
have been formed if neither of those
men had been in Washington's cabinet
and after more than a century the same
two patties, after a more or less check
ered career, continue to exist.
But on acount of the limitations of
the constitution, the American govern
ment is not a government of parties. If
it had been, last winter when the Can
non organization was voted down m
the house, Mr. Taft and all of his cabi
net would have resigned Immediately.
Of course the president paid no atten
tion to the defeat of the administrative
party in the house of representaives.
and if he elections in November should
discover the fact that the adverse con
gressional majority has the support of a
majority of the electors, still the admin
istration will not resign. In this re
spect the German institution of an ires
sponsible ministry, now the target for
the bolts of every political agitator in
the Empire, is exactly a similar insti
tution to that of the American republic.
Difference Between Germany and TJ. S.
The difference between Germany and
the United States is not in the relation
of the legislative and executive func
tions; but in the constitution of the
executive. In Gerjnany the executive
head of the government s appointed by
and responsible to the emperor, 7?ho
Jiolds his office by viftue of his fcryal
hirth. and who is not at any time or in
. any way responsible to the public will,
whether expressed directly in a general
election, as in the United States, or in
directly, by a parliamentary vote, as in
Great Britain. The utter lack of popu
lar control over the executive is re
sponsible for the German agitation for
parliamentary domination in all af
fairs of government.
Although the German imperial chan
cellor is not bound to resign when he is
defeated in theReichstag, yet he can
not succeed in carrying forward his du
ties unless he has a majority willing to
pass his budget and vote him supplies.
True, Bismarck ruled Prussia for four
years without a budget, but both Bis
marck and the days of the "conflict
time" are dead. Thus it is necessary for
the chancellor to court a majority when
he can, and to defy it when he must.
Opposition Ineffective.
' The general elections of 1907 resulted
ii! a heavy majority against the policies
of the government. Although the elec-'
tion had been ordered by the emperor
for the express purpose of obtaining the
popiflar sense, there was no disposition
to submit to the electoral veto. Chan
cellor Van Buelow, by a' series of dex
terous compromises and generous prom
ises, built up for himself a majority
composed of an incongruous coalition of
the Conservatives, the National-Liberals
and the Radicals. 'This threw into,
opposition the Socialists, the "Centrists,
or Roman Catholic Clericals, the Poles
and other minor political divisions. The
parties complising the "bloc" had a
clear majority of the seats In the Reich
stag, although they polled in the aggre
gate more than a million fewer votes
than theicombined parties in opposition.
The aftiance of the Conservative? and
I the Radicals in support of the govern
ment was as ludicrous as was the union
of the clerical Center and the Socialists
in opposition. This artificial and incon
gruous coalition was maintained, how
ever, with considerable success, until
late in 1908. when the government sub
mitted to the Reichstag a bill provid
ing for an increase in taxation estimat
ed to yield an additional annual revenue
of $125,000,000. When the essential sub
ject of taxation came up for considera
tion it was Impossible to hold together
the diverse interests of the bloc. The
new taxes as proposed fell heavily on
the landlords, and the Prussian agra
rians, forming the Tory core of the Con
servative party, deserted the govern
ment. After several months spent in
wranglingsthe National-Liberal, the
Radicals and the Socialists withdrew
from the committee, the chairman re
signing, and all refusing to take any
further ppjj&'n the proceedings.
Von BueloTv'w Resignation.
This threw together the Conservatives
and the Clericals, who proceeded to form
a budget on entirely new lines. Needless
to say the landlords had their way and
step by step the government yielded be
fore the Conservative-Clerical majori
ty and the new budget was passed.
During the pendancy of the debates
chancellor Von Buelow offered his res
ignation to the emperor, but it was re
fuse j. The emperor was determined not
to give his assent to any proceedings
which gave color to the pretensions of
the Reichstag to control the personnel
of the imperial ministry.
Immediately after the finance bill was
passed the Reichstag session was closed,
and Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg was ap
pointed imperial chancellor to succeed
Von Buelow. The reichstag met again
last November, and was organized by
the Conservatives and Clericals, the Na
tional Liberals and Radicals declining
to vote in the organization. Not daring
to repeat the experiment of the bloc,
and not possessing an actual majority
in cordial sympathy wii1 the govern
ment, the new chancellor decided upon
a program wbich at once absolutely de
nied the principle of ministerial respon
sibility, and refused to recognize polit
ical parties as factors In government.
He said that the government would
stand allof x from parties and
grouds of parties; that the gov
ernment of Germany was not
a government by partj-; that gov
or the courage necessary to make a
ernmental measures wd-uld be submitted
to the reichstag but that he was not
disposed to define the constellation of
parties which would support those
j measures. He said that the political
I crisis over the taxation bill had made
no change in German institutions. He
declared that Radicalism strove to di
vide Germany Into two political camps,
but the existence of such a dualism
was only a fiction devised for political
party purposes.
Ministerial Responsibility.
The attitude of the reichstag toward
the government was manifested a few
months later when a resolution was
adopted asserting the principles of min
isterial responsibility, and making the
chancellor responsible for all of his of
ficial acts, and also for all the acts and
documents made by the emperor. At
the same time the popular agitation
over the Prussian suffrage legislation
was so great as to overshadow the min
isterial is-ie. It is not beltevod that the
present chancellor has either the ability
o r the courage necessary to make a
success vf his radical experiment in
governing the empire without regard to
the will or the action of its legislative
department It is ert:tii. however,
that he has succeeded i:i precipitating
