Pinokkk seems to have shrunk to mighty small potatoes in this campaign. Tammany's campaign fund is in danger. Croker is said to be betting on IJryan. "RKsroNSibiMTY burn of duty can not be evaded with honor." William McKinlev. Thk Ciiikktain begs the in dulgence of its readers this week. The foreman went to the fair. Mr. Hkyan has at hist given his slow consent. He has read his formal letter of acceptance. It isn't a question of e xpansion at all. Expansion is an accom plished fact. It's now up to the contractionists. Hon. T. H. Cathox is home again. This signifies that anoth er powerful factor is introduced into New Mexico politics. Thk democratic journals of the territory are raising a hullabaloo because the republican campaign is not managed to suit them. Only two or three of the coun ty offices have yet been spoken for. Socorro county evidently has mighty few statesmen out of a job. Thk Albuquerque Journal Democrat will win fame and shek els by its enterprise in getting out a P-page edition each day during the fair. Gkgykk Ci.kvki.and is too skillful an angler himself to be caught by the bait that the demo cratic campaign managers are throwing out to him. Socokko's large delegation to the fair left friends enough behind them to condole with them when they returned .weary, worn and dead-broke. ' " Will the great strike in Pennsylvania reduce the republi can majority at the November election? Not at all. It will simply iffrl'bh 'some people's memories as to the state of affairs that existed during the four years of tle lutt democratic administra-ikn. Cmktain parties arc suggested as candidates for county offices but they nearly all seem to be im pressed with the lx'lief that the office should seek the man. Thk Chinese Hoxers thought themselves invincible, " It has taken a hard thump on the jaw to convince some of our American boxers of the error of that same notion. Both republicans and demo crats seem to be a little at sea in the matter of a candidate for delegate to congress but it is a safe prediction that a republican will be elected. It is said that Webster Davis has divested himself of his moustache in his desire to look like Bryan. The Colonel's de sire in the matter has not yet been promulgated. Thk appointment of Jo E. Sheridan for mine inspector has much to commend it. lie is qualified for the place, which cr.n not 1h? said of all political appointments that arc mady. By the way, what has become of Oom Paul ? At last accounts be was so hard pressed that it seemed that nothing short of another volley of scriptural quota tions would check the onset of the victorious Britishers. Thk advantages of New Mex ico's climate are becoming more generally known and appreciated. A French physician has recently published a paper in which he pronounces this climate superior to all ollurs for those afflicted with pulmonary diseases. ' Pkohkssok Cakkkka is enti tled to great credit for the success of his exhibit of New Mexico minerals at the Paris exposition. The exhibit was awarded third prize in spite of the fact that it was by no means as meritorious as it would have been if the effort to collect it had received the ' encouragement and support that it deserved. G;.u;(.L I). Cíikistií. uv announ ces himself as a candidate for the office of sheriff of Socorro county, subject' to the' action of the republican convention. We have riot the pleasure of a personal acquaintance with Mr. Christi law, but the many reports that we have heard of him arc all highly in his favor. Everybody seems to iijiuk"he would make an excellent sheriff and he is sure of a strong support in the convention Ex-GOVKKNOK L. Bkadkokd Pkince is to be credited with first blood in the contest for the republican nomination for dele gate toccugress. He has secured the endorsement of the first coun ty to hold a convention for the election of delegates to the ter ritorial convention. That Gov ernor Prince is thoroughly ac quainted with New Mexico's needs and that he has already done much valuable, unremunera ted Work for the territory is saying but a small part of all that might be said in his behalf. (lalveston. Galveston wa3 overwhelmed by the greatest calamity of the century. No other that has visited the earth in the last hun dred years is to be compared with it in extent or in horrifying feat ures. When the storm was passed five thousand lives had been rendered up, five thousand corpses lay mangled and crushed beneath the ruins or were scat tered about ou land and sea, a prey to the elements. The Storm king had sated himself with horrors. 1 But some good has been evoh ed from even this immeasurable catastrophe. The heart of the nation hasbeen touched. Thai is wholesome. ' The spiritof charity has been' aroused. That is a blessing. From almost every hamlet in the land bountiful sup plies have been ser.t to the un fortunate. Therein lies a saving' grace. A people that is endued with a sense of common brother hood is strong against dissensions from within and assaults from without. But witness the spectacle of a city rising to a new life from the very ruins of its former self. That or oblivion is nature's law. Within all the wide bounds of the ' universe there is no other alternative. But' Galveston is not ! doomed to oblivion. Forces are already at work to make the city of the future stronger and more beautiful than the city of the past, a splendid tribute to the in domitable pluck of its people. WKN'T THKOl.'Ull THE STORM . Cí raphic Story I!v n rasscnger Frvm (iillVestou. John A. Rock fellow, Tomb stone, Ariz., civil engineer, U. S. deputy mineral surveyor and official surveyor for Cochise coun ty, passed through this city with his family this morning over the S. P. on their way home from New York. His family went to New York in April and he followed in July. They came from New York to Galveston on the Mallory line steamer Comal and arrived at Galveston Monday nu rning. He says they encount ered a x,rett.V severe storm off the i Florida' Keys between Cape Ilatteras and Key West but from there on they had fine weather. They had heard nothing of the disaster at Galveston and when no boat came out from there to meet their ship they were indignant, but it did not take long to see that there was something wrong. First they noticed that the light ship was gone, then they saw that the jetties were submerged, and the. general bare .netjs of the coast was noticed. Then the dead bodies were seen floating by and the debris of the wrecked structures that were such a common sight to the passengers on incoming steamers to Galves ton could be seen. "Imagine our surprise if you can," said Mr. Rock fellow, "when the first knowledge any of us had of the awful disaster was the sights that met our eyes as we 'approached the island. I shall never forget the sight that the hundreds of floating, swollen bodies presented. We estimajd the amount that he saw from the boat to be fully two hundred. "There isn't a house intact and hundreds of them are completely demolished. The trees are all down and the city is one great mass of . debris. The estimate that live thousand are drowned is not a bit too large. Hundreds are yet under the debris, many of whom can be seen but can not be gotten out yet. "I saw cart load after cart load of bodies being hauled to the gulf for burial. They were just thrown in and piled up like so much rubbish and it was a sight that had to be seen to be realized in its ghastliness. We were there forty-eight hours, the Mallory line people extending to us the privilege of remaining on board until they could provide a means for us to get away, and before we left they had quit trying to take the decomposing bodies to to the sea but were piling debris upon them and burning them where they lay. "A way was opened up to Texas City Wednesday morning and a small steamer took us to that place, from where we were taken over the hastily patched up railway to Houston. There were nine cars in the train we were on and they were packed full of people like sardines in a box and tljere were several such train loads taken out of Galveston, for those who escaped death are anxious to get away from the sickening sights and stenches of the place.' - . . v. , ""Don't tell it in your paper like I have told it," said he, after further conversation, "for it is too awful, too awful. I am a conservative man, but I want to tell yoq that there has been no A Cross Clcrli Is ft rarity.

The wonder is not that a clerk la iometimea irritable, but that he to rarely allows Ir ritation, when ev ery nerve is quiv e r i n g and she hardly knows how to hold her head up. The nervous condition, head ache and weak ness, which are the results of irreg ularity or dis eased condition of the womanly or gans, can be en tirely cured by the use of Dr. lierce's Favorite Prescrip tion.

El Vaso Herald. United States In the Lead. Germany has been making great industrial conquests in the past quarter of a century, but the number of prizes which fhe carried off in the Paris exposition, although greater tha:: tV'uia of any other ou'ts; 1? country, are less than half cf those gained by the United States exhibitors, says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Not only does American supremacy extend to all the me chanical industries, but it makes itself felt in the department of art also, where the prizes granted to Americans far surpass those won by any other people except the French themselves. It is evident that the age when Ameri ca, after conquering the continent, should give some attention to the aesthetic side of life has come. It still excels in the utilitarian arena, but it is achieving triumph's also in the purely ornamental and artistic Held. The 2,500 prizes which citizens of the United States have carried off in the competition of the entire world at Paris is an impressive illus tration of the intelligence, the adaptability, the resource fulness and the many sidedness of the American people. CUKED OK CHRONIC DIAKNHOEA AFTER THIKTY YKAKS OF SUFFERING. "I suffered for thirty years with diarrhoea and thought I was past being cured," says John S. Halloway, of French Camp, Miss. " had spent so much time and money and suffered so much that I had given up all hopes of recovery. I vas' so feeble from the effect of the diarrhoea that I could do no kind of labor, could not even travel, but by accident I was permitted to find a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and after taking several bottles I am entirely cured of tha.trouhle. I am so pleased with the result that I ara anxious that it be in reach of all whosufferas I have." For sale by A. E. Howell, Socor ro; W. W. IJorrowdale, Magda lena. ' A snap.
