On VMr $2 00 His months 1 00 SATURDAY, DEC. 1 1900. Tim prospects are still pood for an improvement of conditions in Socorro in the near future. If Croker succeeds in cleansing (reater Now York of political corruption what does he think there will be left lor hiru to be boss of? Tin; Cimkktain will hereafter contain a woman's column. An effort will 1e made to supply this column with material of live interest to ladv readers. Onk of the benefits that would accrue to New Mexico through Statehood would be the power to protect herself against the' evils lurking in such nefarious schemes as that embodied in the Stephens bill. Tin; official 1ond required of the county superintendents of schools in the territory is twice the prospective receipts of the office. This will li.x Klfego Baca's bond at about (), 000, which he can easily give. Tin: game of diplomacy that has been so long in progress over in China is not yet played out and there is still a general im pression that Uncle Samuel 'nobis the best trump- and that he will play it at the proper time. Wiikn the mists cleared away Wednesday morning Socorro mountain stood arrayed in a mantle of snow for the first time this season. However, the man tile was soon put away as superflu ous in the pleasant weather that followed. Tin'. United States government is pressing its claim againstTur l:ey and the latter country is assuming a dili.mt attitude. Dv the time the Kentucky reaches Turkish waters the sick man will probably have to call his family physician. ' Colon kl Dkyan thought there were good reasons why he ought not 'to be a candidate for United States senator from Nebraska. The people of the state have ex pressed their hearty sympathy in that sentiment by electing a re publican majority to the legis lature. The storms that have inflicted untold losses and hardships upon the northern and eastern states this week have visited New Mex ico in a milder fonrl and have been welcomed as great blessings. Snow in the mountains and rain in the valleys make glad the heart of the stockman. New Mkxico's increase of 27 per cent in population in the last ten years is fully up to the average of the country. Furthermore, no portion of Uncle S im's dominion has brighter prospects than this territory has Sot increase of population and development of resources in the near future. As a state New Mexico would quickly surpass many of the states already enrolled in the union. (.live us statehood. Socohho was rievei in better condition than now to accommo date strangers within her gates. Many health seekers are already here and still others are coming. A mi,ld though invigorating climate' and a beautiful location tell the utorj. Unfortunately, not til who come are restored to health. Many are, and but few 'f ti fltnl wrne degree of relief s from the pangs of disease which thej suffered in severe, inhospita ble climates. Oom Pari, seems to have concluded not to come to the United States. The effervescent French people made his visif tp their country an occasion to take an extra twist in the lion's tail. The masses of the American people doubtless feel no dispo sition to afford the prcsidentof the late Doer republic any such diversion, but he would be sure to receive an abundance of such sympathy as is always extended to a representative of a weak country struggling against a powerful one. St Rnr.T, Wvkks & Co., New York brokers, have this week written a letter to a firm of this city stating that they hold for clients $17,000 in Socorro 6 per cent water bonds on which inter est has not been paid for eighteen months. It is also stated that unless the interest on these, bonds is paid very shortly the accounts will be placed in the hands of at torneys for collection. We arc informed that the citizens of So corro are required by law to pay upwards of $2,000 into the city treasury annually to be credited to the water fund. If this is true, and if the money has not been collected, why not? If this is true, and if the money has been collected, what has become of it? The holders of these bonds have in effect a mortgage on every dollar's worth of taxable property in the city and they can foreclose that mortgage with very little difficulty. 1-herefore it behooves the taxpayers of the city to see to it that all obligations in this line are promptly met. On the twelfth day of Decem ber will be elaborately celebrated jn Washington the centennial of the first assembly of the congress of the United States in the present capital. The occasion will derive most of its significance from the remarkable development that the country has experienced in the century about to close. Probably no country ever experienced a more remark able development in the same length of time. A hundred years ago there were sixteen states in the union, their population was 5,000,000, their southern bounda ry was Florida and their western boundary was Mississippi, and it was still a question whether they would be able to maintain their independence or their republican form of government. Now there are forty-five states; their popu lation is 76,000,000; their area stretches from shore to shore of the continent and their flag floats over possessions beyond the seas; their independence, integrity and form, of government are estab lished beyond question; and they are recognized as a power among the nations of the earth. Verily there is great reason to make this centennial celebration an im passive one. The Irrigation Congress. Tim irrigation congress held in Chicago last week was suggestive ot magnilicent possibilities, Other similar congresses have assembled to represent certain interests and they have proved to le HJwcrfuI factors in the pro motion of those interests. I3ut in the scope of its purpose and in the magnitude of its proposed benefits last week's assembly was preeminent. i' It is estimated that 100,000,000 acres of arid lands in the west may be reclaimed by irrigation. This area, greater than that of New Mexico, greater than that of New Kngland and New York combined, is now barren and al most useless. I5y means of irri gation it may be made to furnish homes for millions of people and to producá directly wealth enough to enrich an empire. These con siderations alone would seem to be sufficient to induce congrss to take prompt and efficient meas ures to the desired nd. However, there are other con siderations which seem to make immediate action by congress im perative. The populous centers of the cast are Incoming congest ed. About all the desirable pub lic land has been taken up. Manu facturers are seeking a wider market for their products. Specu lators are already obtaining con trol of the best water privileges in anticipation of public ueeds. These facts are ample to show that the irrigation movement was inaugurated none too soon. CLOSE OF THE PARIS EXPOSITION. The 12th of November, the last day of the Exposition, wasmarred by a cold drizzling rain, which kept the attendance down. The price of tickets dropped until five could be purchased for one cent, and they were finally given away in considerable numbers. Prompt ly at. midnight tlie lights were cut off, and a cannon on the first story of the Eiffel Tower announced the formal closing. The event was celebrated in the afternoon in the Chamber of Deputies. The official statistics show that the Eposition was a success, 50,000,000 persons having passed through its gates, against 25,121, 975 persons in 1889. In the latter Exposition British and Belgian visitors headed the listas regards numbers, but this year the Germans came first and the Belgians second. Americans also formed a very noticeable contin gent. The record day for attendance in 1900 was (00,000, as against 335,377 in 1889. The total cost of the Exposition just closed was somewhere between $40,000,000; the exact amount will not probably be known for some time. It is believed that this enormous sura has been returned indirectly in the increase of the treasury receipts, in the surplus of Parisian octroi duties, in the monuments remaining to the state or the "city, and iu the quays, bridges, and, improved transportation facilities left by the Exposition. The work of removing the exhibits began at ence, and as soon as posible the buildings will be demolished, so the uusightly wreck at Jackson Park after our own fair of 1S3 will not be repeated. No vestige of the Exposition will be left except the great hot-liouses on the north bank of the Seine and the Art Palaces. Many of the buildings, owing to poor obstruction, were already in bad condition on the day of closing. The nineteenth century has been a century of expositions, ten having been held in the last fifty years. Scientific American. A Lincoln Story. Mr. Lincoln said once that the best story he ever read in the papers of himself was this. "Two Quakeresses were travel ing on the railroad and 'were heard discussing the probable termination of the war. ' '.'I think,' said tb,e. first, 'that Jefferson will succeed.' '"Why does thee think so?' asked the other. "Because Jefferson is a praying man.' " 'A nd so is Abraham a praying man,' objected the second. " 'Yes, but the Lord will think Abraham is joking,' the first replied conclusively,'! NOTICE.

ADVERTISING KEW MEXICO. , The Good Work that 1 Bthifr Done 1y the Uureati of Immiif ration. The New Mexico Bureau of Immigration is making a good use of Governor Otero's report to the secretary of the interior, issued last year, on the condition of the territory. It is an exhaust ive document and contains a vast amount of valuable information, the extensive circulation of which should do New Mexico great good. " Colorado's neighbor on the south is closely allied to other subdivi sions of the Rock mountain region in all its physical characteristics, having regard to differences in latitude. It is warmer than Colo rado and Wyoming, but with this exception it differs but little from either of those states. Its agriculture depends almost entire ly on irrigation. Stock growing will always be a leading industry, and mining will be the chief source of wealth. It contains de poirtsof precious metals.although t is probably not so rich in that respect as Colorado. But it has more copper and it is equally as rich as this state in coal, if not also in iron. No part of the west has a more genial and healthful climate or a more fertile soil. Nevertheless, New Mexico's progress has been slow. This is chiefly due to the fact that growth in its agricul tural population depends upon reclamation of the land from aridity, and valleys not supplied with the means of irrigation offer no inducements to settlers. There is hardly any part of the public domain where national aid in the construction of irrigation works could be extended with more propriety or greater profit. A very great enlargement of the irrigated area will depend upon the construction of reservoirs for the storage of storm waters, and in tli.it ,work congress should assist by making liberal appro priations. Recently more than the usual attention has been directed to New Mexico's gold resources, and it is gratifying to be able to say that good results have attended development. Several camps gave promise of yielding large amounts of gold, and through that means still more capital will be drawn to such places. It requires outside capital to develop any country like New Mexico, and publications like Governor Otero's report should be sent into every part of the union, so that the mineral and other resources of the terri tory may become widely known. Denver Republican. Operation Resulted iu Drath. The Brazilian surgeon who performed the operation separat in the twins Maria and Rosalina has got himself into trouble. The children were so closely joined that they had. one pericardium and two livers grown together. One twin, Maria, died, while Rosalina survives "although a little lopsided as the result of the operation." The surgeon although a famous man who acted in strictly good faith, has been indicted for murder. The doctors all sympathize with him, for he performed the operation from motives of philanthropy, but he is charged with not observing the proper precautions, and it is asserted that Maria died from blood poisoning.

That Low Anlmil, flan. Instead of the highest, man is in some respets the lowest of the animal kingdom. Man is the most unchqstc, the most drunken, the most egotistic, the most hypocritical and the most atro cious of living creatures. No animal, except man, kills for the mere sake of killing. For one being to take the life of another for purposes of selfish utility is bad enough, conscience knows, but the indiscriminate massacre of defenseless victims by a,rmed and organized packs, just for pastime, is beyond character ization. The human species is the only species of animals that plunges to such depths of atrocity. Even vipers and hyenas do not kill for recreation. No.aiiimal, oxept man, habitu ally seeks wealth purely out of an insane impulse to accumulate, and no animal, except matt, gloats over accumulations that are of no possible use to him, that arc an injury and an, abomination and in whose acquisition he has commit ted irreparable crimes upon others. There are no millionaires among the birds and quadrupeds. No animal except man spends so large a part of his energies striving for superiority not superiority in usefulness, but that superiority which consists in simply getting on the heads of one's fellows to crow and no animal practices common, ordi nary morality to the beings of the world in which he lives so little, compared with the amount he preaches it, as man.
