Secretary Whitney is candid
enough to admit ihat, for obvious
reasons; our - navy officers 'know
little about the eonstrueUoit of hun

nations would be , much better off,
pecuniarily and as; naval powers,
if they had observed a similar pol
icy. Millions upon millions' have
been squandered by various coun
tries in costly experiments,' and in
spite of these expensive lessons.it
is true of other nations as of this

In these days we hear a, great
deal about doing as they did in
Jackson's day. The fact of the
matter is people who talk that way
don't think,, much.- It is now im
pofsible to do as thny did in Jack
son's day. There is all the differ
ence between that time and now
that there is between riding a walking-stick
as a boy and making a
success of riding a bucking mule.
The entire popular vote cast in
1924, according to the best records,
was less than 400,000. In 1874 it
was about 10,000,000. v ,ln 1810,
w hen Harrison was elected, it "was
only a little over - 2,000,000. But
these figures express onlv a. very
small side of the case. The num
ber of employes have increased in
Tnuch creator ratio; It is now
something simply enormous. The
employes of the postoffice depart
ment, for instance, extend through
all the departments. The railway
mail, the carrier system, and cheap
postage have done it. . The num
ber of employes to-day are said to
be five times as many as they were
when the republicans took tne reins
of the government in 18G0; The
time is certainly coming when
something must be done to very
much relieve the heads of the de
partments. One mind canuot grasp

There are as, many office-seekers
to-day as there were voters in 1824.

The Law mid tlie fattlwaen .
Cbltas Weekly J '
If the cattlemen had obeyed the
injunction of the old legul maxim,
caveat emptor let the purchaser
beware they would rot now ' be
cursing Gen. Sheridan and franti
cally appealing to the president.
They looked upon the lands of the
Cheyeiiiii-s end Arnpahocs to ewl
them and they beguiled the guile
lass Indian to lease what was not
his to lease, and now they are fear
ing their hair over the bad box into
which their covetousnest without
caution has placed them. Their
attempts to put the government in
the wrong by saying that it taoitly
consented to these Indian leases
will not do. The government of
the United. States can do no wrng.
Some of its officials iutiusted with
the manngement of its affairs may
haqe tacitly consented to the jeaso
of Indian reservations to specula
tive cattlemen, but the latter vere
bound by. law and the dictates of
common prudence to, examine ,the
title they were renting. The Sme
laws, statutes, and treaties upon
which tlie attorney-general has
based his odiuiou were open to tlie
inspection of the attorneys of the
wealthy cattlemen It tney neg
lected to examine them -or trusted
to the tacit consent . of officials to
confirm ah' illegal bargainso much
the worse for them. To-day they
claim that the strict enforcement
of the order to rtmovo their cattle
from the leased reservatmn lands
in forty days will be a virtual de
struction of their cattle interests,
amounting to $G,000,000. They
should have thonght of this before
their cupidity led them to take ille
gal leases of lands , they may not
occupy except in open defiance of
the Jaw. Attorney-General Gar
lands opinion touching the status
of the Indian leases is clear, strong
and conclusive. His citations from
the United States statutes preclude
any 1 construction which might
serve to shelter the cattlemen in
the occupancy of the lands ..leased
from the Indians. By section 2110
revised statutes, now in force,. it is
declared "that no" purchase, grant,
leReTx,r CktJierCQ!iv:e
or any title or claim thereto from
any Indian nation or tribe of In
dians shall be of any validity in
law or equity unless the same be
make by treaty of constitution." If,
notwithstanding this comprehen
sive and explicit provision of the
law any one enters with cattle or
other live stock on an Indian res
ervation under a lea&o he is an in
truderand may be removed there
from as such although "the tribe
consents to hia occupancy. From
which it doth- appear that if the
cattlemen are wise they will stop
passiug resolutions of remonstrance
about their hardships and remove
their, tresspassing cattle without
delay. The people of the United
States haye little faith in the pro
tests of men who have openly de
fied the law. Gen. Sheridan says
the cattle can be removed is forty
days. In forty days there should
not be an intruding bull, steer, cow,
calf, or other four-legged property
of eattlemen on the Indian reser
vations. ; '

In Search of Sunken Wealth.
Chicago Hrtald. ,
' An expedition will soon sail from
Philadelphia for Vizo, Spain, in
search of the Spanish treasure gal
leons sunk in the bay ih 1702. An
engineer who visited the spot last
summer declares that he positively
located eleven of the sunken treas
ure galleons and, in a diver's : suit,
went down upon the decks of sev
ers! of them,' which were lying at
the depth of thirty ! or forty feet
below the surface. With a charge
of dynamite he blew off the deck of
one of them and laid bnre the gen
eral cargo, which consisted of huge'
logs of mahogony and logwood in
perfect ". preservation.- He , also
picked up coins from the deck, and
iron balls, mementoes - of the sea
fight 183 years ago. '
It ia a well established , fact that
cows in New Mexico and Arizona
produce more calves than cows on
the Northern ranges. From a
careful computation of data on this
point it has been found that about
ninety-five per cont of the cows of
this section drop calvus every year
providing there has been the max
imum bull service. , On the other
hand tho ihree-year-old steers of
the Northern ranges will outweigh
the steer of the same age grown in
Central New Mexico , by 200 to 250
pounds except in the case of high
bred stock, when the dilference if
verv slight. Ex.

and his table is well supplied with
pheasants and quail. Ex-Secrtary
Lincoln is a rather dainty eatea,

Sheridan is particularly fond of
canvas-back ducks and diamond

very choice. Justice Harlin, of

canxas-back ducks and rock-fish.
Judge McArther likes canvas-back
ducks and shad. Wade Hampton
likes blue-wing teal and black bass.
