Where have our iudustriss gone? Our indus tries have gODe with silver. When our Shyloek presidents aod congress de monetized silver they also destroyed many other of our industries. When the census enumerators of New Mexico forwarded their returns to Washington, high officials there were greatly amazed at what they called "iueoinpeteDO',?' because of the disappearance' of tEe many' industries that existed in 181)0 which are now ex tinct. They evidently did not realize that by destroying silver that they virtually destroyed and maimed every industry in the territory. Yes, they threatened to hold up the enumera tors' pay because they did not report industries that do not exist. Is it any wonder the republicans are amazed at their own perfidy. According to a resolution adopted by the Sierra county republicans 10 convention two years ago, when they made a ridiculous show of endorsing the McKinley administration, except ing itB financial policy, they declared that tbe valuation of taxable property in Sierra county alone had fallen from 14,000,000 to 1 ,000,000, yet when tbe party lash was administered by the goldite boss, that convention indorsed the McKinley admiuis tration from A. to Z, and then like assassins in the dark, and true unto McKinley's method of shrinking responsibility, laid the blame of their cowardly act upon the 6houlders of their Mexican delegates, thus relieving themselves oF the "white man's burden." Had the chief of the census depart ment at Weshineton consulted the resolutions adopted by the Sierra county republicans in that convention, he would not have been amazed at the1, disappearance of New Mexico's in-' dustrics that existed in 1S90. Census Taker A. S. Warren who bad charge of the field including Kingston and Sierra Blanca had bis pay sus pended (because he did not report in dustries that do Dot exist) until- he satisfied the government that he had faithfully performed his duties. 4fter compiling bis report and sending it in he received the following letter from New Mexico's census supervisor, Pedro Sanchez:; August 8, 1900. A. S. Warren, Census Enumerator, Andrews, N. M. Sir I am advised by the Director of the Census that you have reported no establishments of manufacturing or mechanical industry in your district, and that payment of your account will be suspended until satisfactory ex planation is made asto why no such establishments were reported. The records show that such places were reported in 1S00, and it is cer tainly very strange that they have entirely disappeared within the past ten years. If you have overlooked this matter, and need blanks, the necessary ones will be forwarded to you upon application I? you read paragraphs 31Z to 330, ioclusivo, of Instructions to Enumera' tors you will see what is required. Very respectfully, Pedro Sanchez, Supervisor. Following is Mr. Warren's reply to Mr. Sanchez : Andrews, N. M., Aug. 10,1900, Pedro Sanchez, Census Supervisor. - Sir :--Yours of the 8th at hand and contents carefully noted, and in reply will say that my "report encloses all of Sierra Blanca and Kingston as they are. I could not report any manu facturing or mechanical industry a$ there was none. And as to the records ten years ago I don't know, but Iving ston, the towa you inform me as io corporated is not and never was, and all the mills, concentrators, test mills and in fact everytiing is abandoned, ind the only occupants at this time are bats, owls and wild animals and insects. Nothing strange about this, in a silver camp. Kingston has do. bank, no hotel, no livery stable, and in fact has nothing " except a few broken-hearted miners. .1 need no blanks or books to make a report on. My report 1 ma:le to you and the department is true. I left Dothing nndone that I could do and I do not think I overlooked, one person or anything that was my duty to look after. Hoping, sir,'this explanation is satisfactory, I remain, Yours respectfully, A. S. W abbes. , With the destruction of silver went our industries, anli they are still go ing, while blue mold and rot of stagna tion and inactivity are rapidly smother ing the business interests of New Mexico.

The tests then made by the official experts showed that Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder was the purest, strongest, most healthful of all the baking powders exhibited, and a diploma and medal were awarded accordingly. It is such testimony as this which has established the use of Dr. Price's Geam Baking Powder in homes where pure food and economy are appreciated. PRICE BAKING POWDER CO, CHICAGO. Note.

FEDERAL IRRIGATION. Wet tarn Congressmen to bs Invited to an Irrigation Banquet at Omaha. The national irrigation movement is being pushed vigorously in all quar ters. Never before has such interest been shown th rot'ghout the arid States oa this impo rtant subject. A recent Sturg!s,.South Dakota, ""specTa! says "Wesley A. Stuart, of this city, vice president of the National Irrigation Association for South Dakota, returned from Omaha, where he met with J. E. Un, secretary of the Omaha Commer cial Club. It has uow been decided to invite all western Congressmen to a banquet at Omaha on their way to Congress at Washington. The Omaha Commercial Club will do the enter taining.. At this banquet something definite will be done toward uniting the Congressmen upon, a plan to put through the irrigation bill, which is destined to reclaim the arid regions of the western Stales. Tbe movement is becoming widespread, s Enlightened Easterners. IFrom the Los Angeles Timei.l An indication of the increasing in terest taken by the business men of the country in the national irrigation movement is furnished by an article in the Chicago Evening Post of Septem ber 27, which devotes a column to the proceedings of the Executive Com mittee of the National. Business League. The Post opens its article by saying:, "What promises to he one of the greatest undertakings in the history of the country practically found,its incep tion yesterday at a meeting of the Ex ecutive Committee of the National Bus iness League, wkeu resolutions were drawn up and adopted calling upon Congress for an annual appropriation of $250,000 for the reclamation and settlement of arid lands in the West. While it remained for the National Business League to take the first active steps in the matter, that body was not the first to propose such a scheme. That the business interests of the West demand that the millions of acres of public land in the West be developed and that part of the country be allowed thereby to progress in proportion to the East is admitted generally throughout the, country, The Chicago paper goes on to show that favorab'e action on the matter had already been taken by a number of local and national organizations. The matter was brought to the atten tion of the business league some time ago by Mr. Maxwell, aud a committee was named to investigate the project. At the meeting Col. Elliott Darand chairman of the committee, read its report and. offered the resolutions which were finally adopted. In sub' stance, the report stated that the ideas as set forth by the National Irrigation Association were worthy of the close attention of the national law-makers and of the people in all classes of I 1 business. The four important points wage-earner and small business maul were, it said: . are growing less and less, yet "great "A trusteeship of all the public lands remaining by the gov. r . :;itM.t aud a reservation of t'ua saue f r actual settlers, with no grams to Slates or corporations for any purpose. "The reservation of foivs'.s arid the reforestation of denuded areas, for tbe preservation of existing water supplies. "Federal storage rsurvuirs to con serve flood waters that. :iow go to waste, as recommended iu tlie Chittenden government report, under the estab lished policy of river control. "Reservoirs, dams and main-line ca" aals, to be built by -the 'government where necessary to reclaim tha arid government lands." Tae resolutions adopted, after a lengthy preamble reciting the facts in re gard to the arid lauds and the possi bilities of reclamation, urge the adop tion by the Federal government of a complete and comprehensive national policy for the preservation reclama tion and settlement of the publie do main, as follows; "All the remaining public lands to be held and administered as a trust for the benefit of the whole people of the Cnited States, and no grauts of the title to any of the public lands to be hereafter made to any State or Terri tory or to anyone but actual settlers and home builders on the land. "Tbe preservation and development of our national resources by the con struction of storago' reservoirs by the Federal government for flood protec tion and to save for use in aid of navigation and irrigation the flood waters which now run to waste and cause overflow and destruction. "The construction by the Federal government of storage reservoirs and irrigation works wherever necessary to furnish water for the reclamation aDd settlement of the arid public lands. "The preservation of the forests and reforestation of denuded forest areas as sources of water supply, the con servation of existing supplies by ap proved methods of irrigation and dis tribution, and tha iucrease of the water resources of the arid region br the investigation aud development of underground supplies and the united ownership of land and water." It was further urged that Congress make an annual appropriation of not less than f250,000 for irrigation surveys, maps and estimates, and of not less than $100,003 for irrigation investigations by the Department of Agriculture, also that the national policy above set forth should be fully installed without delay "and that liberal appropriations should be im mediately made for the construction of storage reservoirs and irrigation works and for forest preservation and reforestation in accordance with said policy, and that su-.?h appropriation should be commensurate in amount with-the groat national interests in volved and the- magnitude of there- suits to be accomplished." A copy of these resolutions was ordered sent to very Senator and Con gressman, to every commercial or ganization in the country, and to every source where it is thought that some iufluence will be brought to bear favorably upon the measure. In view of such action as this, by leading commercial bodies of the country, it is difficult to see upon what rronrfls a few people in this can continue to insist that it impossible to interest CoDgress s j'jeet of national irrigation ' ar':d lands.
