ROOSEVELT'S SPIRIT STlLLSCHOOL DAYS
DOMINATES
A S THE primary election returns of
fa parts of the onion are recorded, it
e more radical elements or ue m pwuai panics
couig to be in position to make a strong fight for party
control In the HepubKcan primaries in all states except
those which hart favorite sons in the presidential race, the
contest has narrowed down to Gen. Wood and senator
Johnson, both, of whom are classified as "progressives,"
.he former a moderate progressive, the latter a radical.
Governor Lowdtn and senator Harding, the two leading
candidates of the conservative Republicans, are far behind
' heir two "prgreive" rivals and have shown no strength
oat-side of their own states. This does sot necessarily
eliminate them, bat it shews the temper of the party.
The split of 1912 is too fresh in the minds of the Re
lublican leaders to permit the steam roSer tactics which
cost the party the election that year. The men who con
rol the party's destinies will hardly assume the attitude
they did eight years ago, when they
m ot the people, it is sale te assume
inate a man the rank and file has shown it does net want.
At the same time the conservative wing of tne party most
be respected.
The overwhelming defeat of Hoover in California, his
home state, has probably eliminated "'"
Is the strength developed by Wood and Johnson can be
plainly seen a tribute by a part of the Eepabfican voters to
the memory of Theodore Roosevelt. Both of the leading can
didates were the late president's intimate associates. Gen.
Wood was his companies is arras in the Spanish-Americas
war, and that he steed high in Mr. Roosevelt's esteem was
evidenced time and again. Senator Johnson was Roose
velt's running mate on the Progressive ticket in 1912.
If Theodore Sooeevett were alive today there wooH be
no contest for the Republican nomination. But for bis un
timely death the country weald be turning to bin as its
sanoi His spirit dominates the party still, and the oH
guard win have to consider a compromise candidate.
Arizona's National
ARIZONA has heme rule at last is her miHtary affairs.
As a result of the recent decision of the supreme court
that the governor of Arizona ceaH engage and discharge
the adjutant general, tbe commonwealth has a state guard.
This is as it should be. It is right enough that national
guards be merged wits the federal war making machinery
when we are at war, but to have the state nSKtia under
exclusive independent control of the general staff and the
secretary of war when we are at peace is a form of mili
tarism Americans are sot readj for.
Charles W. Harris, adjutant general snder former gov
ernor Host of Ansesa, took the stand that he could net be
discharged by the state's chief executive. Capt Walter
IagaHs, named by governor Campbell to succeed Harris,
took the matter op in the courts and hence the dedafea
in his favor.
By settling the dispute of who is boss of tne rniWIa in
Arizona the supreme court has settled the same question
for all of the other states. It is fortunate, for a national
military machine is as bad as a national poEtkal machine.

Faith In El Paso

ment with a view to building one of the finest hotels in
the southwest, the purchaser demonstrates his faith is EI
Paso and its future. He believes be made a good bargain
and time will show that he is right in his judgment
Half a million dollars seems like a lot of money to in
vest in such a comparatively small piece of ground as tne
Sheldon property is a aty of lees than 100,000 people. In
most dties of this sire the price would be considered exor
bitant. But the ground is worts tne price because of what
EI Paso-is going to be, not because of what it new is. Ten
years hence, when El Paso has a population of a quarter of
a million, people will recall the Sheldon deal and conclude
that tne El Pasoan who bought tne property was a man of
vision.
El Paso real estate offers not only a safe investment,
but oportnsity to realize handsomely through advance is
values. Those who invested in the past have pretited im
mensely and the opportunities -are just as great no- as they
ever were.. The Sheldon purchase was made on a basis of
the most careful calculation, by one who desires only a
safe, permanent, and profitable investment
Mexico's Quick Turns.
TITHEN Mexico is annoyed with an administration, dees
she wait four long, tedious and trying years to make a
change? Does she hold primaries and conventions and tol
erate long winded speeches by ranting candidates? And
does she finally wind up with a costly and contested elec
tion and all of the fol-de-rol of electorial colleges and
things?
Mexico simply closes np certain places of pnboc frolic
and gees on a vacation for a day. Some factotum issues a
prennndamento. A few firecrackers explode, the govern
ment changes with the agiHty of a flea, and that's all there
is to it,-whether it be a city, a state, or the vast stretches
of the entire republic
Mexico's method of shifting the gears of her govern
ment is as simple as drinking a glass of water or eating a
peanut Perhaps we conH sot adopt it is these states with
success, but it is a stunner for quick responsiveness to the
the mercurial democracy.

"Prom what I hear about town,
concerning the opening of an amuse

tbe coming summer, I think El Paso
is beginning to realize that her en

limited in the past and that there is
a real need for clubs and other such
things to provide adequate recreation
for the people of a city this size.
