This was a graceful tribute to the memory of one whose many kind oflices in times past had given the dov ernor assurance., of a friendly re tfanl. No doubt a generous degree of notoriety would be very gratify ing to Czolgosz and would also afford the greatest possible inducement for other anarchists to imitate his diabolical example. For that reason it is to be hoped that the and execution of the assassin may be conducted speedily and given the least possible publicity, Tukkk is now a prospect that Socorro is again to be blessed with several months of public school, A corps of teachers ha Wen elected and there is said to le a good sum of money in the school fund. In view of the fact that the city schools have been sadly neglected of late this is an especially gratifying state of affairs. lion, and if it were also known to be preliminary to a corresponding reduction in the rate of taxation, it would afford extreme grati fication to everybody who has the welfare of the territory at heart. l'KKSlDKNT TIIKODUHK l!(K)KVi:LT. On the 14th day of September only a few hours after William McKinley had fulfilled his mis sion on earth, Theodore Koose velt, under circumstances pain fully solemn and impressive, subscribed to tho oath which bound him to the conscientious discharge of the duties of ruler of eighty millions of people. These duties are many and com plicated and of so grave a nature as to appall a man of only ordin ary experience and executive capacity. What manner of man is he, then, upon whose shoul ders the hand of fate has placed this great burden? Mr. Kooscvclt is a magnificent specimen of American manhood. Though young, he has had a widely varied experience. lie has distinguished himself as a statesman, as an author, and as a soldier. Under many trying circumstances he has displayed to a high degree the qualities of courage, self reliance, energy, executive capacity, and enthusi astic devotion to duty. By the exercise of these qualities he has achieved uniform .success hereto fore and by their exercise he will direct the affairs of the govern ment wisely now. Thus he as sumes the duties of his high office supported by the unreserv ed confidence of the American people in his integrity and abil ity. President Roosevelt has already announced that the policy of the administration will in no wise be changed. The main principles of that policy will continue to be the gold standard, a protective tariff, and a fearless assumption of whatever responsibilities the course of events may allot to the American people. The Presi dent's vigorous advocacy of those principles is too well known to leave any room for doubt as to his future conduct concerning them and the country is assured the full enjoyment of whatever good may be derived from their complete application. Tim practice of cartooning men in public life should cease. The representation of a prominent politician as a monster the like of which exists neither in the heavens above nor the earth beneath nor in the waters under the earth may amuse the frivolous, or it may gratify the petty malice of harmless bigots. If this were all, the practice would scarcely deserve serious con fcideration. There is no doubt, however, but tha.t both lunatics and criminals are moved thereby to deeds of evil. Therefore the general wehfare demand that the frivolous and the bigoted bo denied their j ttv gratification. Thk ti-rrítoria.1 board of equalization has increased uniformly y cn per cent the assessed valuation of all real es tate and improvements thereon in the incorporated cities, towns, and village of the territory, and also by tke same uniform rater the assessed valuation of all stocks of merchandise in ranch corporations. Hy the same act tUe lard in creased uniformly by fifteen per Cent all stacks of merchandise in the territory outside of in corporated cities, towns, and village. This action of the board is based on the belief that it is necessary in order to equalize assessments and it is meeting with general approval. t this action, were known to be prelinv incry to an increase of at least one hundred per cent in all assessed valuations and to a corresponding assessment of all property that uovy escaps taxa- A Nation's Sorrow. Eioiity millions of people sorrowing and grieving for the loss of a President whom they loved and trusted! Anger at the cruel and cowardly deed of the assassin drowned in sympathy for the manly victim who endured his suffering with sublime resignation and fortitude! Does earth afford a more touching spectacle? Out of evil comes forth good. Otherwise hope would be swal lowed up in despair. At such a time as this, parties and creeds cease to be. Sympathy and loyalty obliterate all differences. In the presence of this great sorrow every citizen of our beloved land is more profoundly an American than ever before. Since the world began such has been the efficacy of tho blood of martyrs. No act of Mr. McKinley' public or his private life, no word of his tongue or his pen ever quickencxl the minds and hearts of Americans as does his dying utterance, "It is (lod's way; His will be done." Such words spoken by lips made eloquent by the thrill of healthful life are impressive, but murmured feebly under the chill touch of the finger of death they are sublime. They reveal an exalted faith, reliance, and resignation still strong when the heart is no longer sensible- to other senti ments. They Lespeak a noble character, and such was the character of William McKinley. IVace andtheloung benedictions of cigthty millions of Americans attend his memory.

Tourists come here and shout to waiters, hotel clerks, shop keepers, etc., believing that if you only yell forth your English it instantly becomes compre hensibe. And a common error in breeding and one not confined to tourist foreigners is , to make unpleasant remarks about men, women and things in a tone of voice which conveys at on;e to the natives that something disagreable is being said. So we acquire not without reason the reputation of being muy groseros, or very rude, and too often we are. Mexican Herald.

I'ingree was coming into prominence in Michigan politics, he was in Washington one right and strolled through the corridors of Willard's hotel, which he had not visited since war times, when it was the popular rendezvous of the city, political, military and otherwise. A friend introduced him to Colonel Mosby, the old guerrilla chieftain. "Why, hello, colonel," said I'ingree in his bluff, olT handed way, just as if he was in the habit of meeting Mosby every day, "I have not seen you for 25 years, but I remember every well the last occasion when we met." "Ah," said the Virginian politely, "what incident recalls it to your mind? I really fail to remember you, much to my regret." "Oh, well," said Pingree, "you would not be so apt as I to remember the day. I was captured by your men, and, hap pening to be wearing a very good, nearly new uniform, you confisca ted it on the spot and gave me your old ragged butternuts. Cut that's all right.
