STL PARO TEX AH FRIDAY OCTOBER 10 111.
Would Establish New Precedent.
will II. M.i v ea the Brownwood newspaper man
who waa honored with the poaltlon ot lieutenant gov-
ernor by the Democracy of Texaa has announced aa
a candidate (or governor and has sprung a genuine
Innovation In the (urther announcement that he pro-
posag'lo make a close and thorough campaign of the
state on an appropriation of I&.000 (or that purpose.
When the Mayes campaign fund Is compared with
that spent In recent years when 120000 haa appa-
rently been about the limit. It will b seen that tha
Brownwood statesman la doing violence to established
precedent. Governor Colquitt stood up before a bunch
of governors In Colorado Springs recently and boaated
that his last csmpslgn had cost his friends alons the
sum of $7800 and he Inflated hla chest and bowed
bis neck with the (urther sasursnca that he honestly
believed they hud gutten the worth of their money.
There Is no doubting or denying the (act that
there haa been too much money spent In Texas gu-
bernatorial campaigns of recent years. There has
been auch a profligate expenditure of money that
many poor anil hgneat men have been convinced that
candidacy (or the poaltlon waa beyond their reach.
To the average man even $6000 la. a large aum ot
money to hasnrd on a race for the governorahlp but
there la no denying tha (act that the Mayes move
ment la a step In the right direction.
The salary of the governor of Texas la 14000 per
annum and It Is an unwise custom which compela the
governor to apend more than he will receive from
two terma In obtaining his first term o( o(f1ce. Will
Mayes la willing to give a little more than halt and
that Is llbarsl enough.
Good Medicine For Revolutions.
Twenty-five years In the Tesjas sjcnltontlary (or
young Serrano the first of the gunrunners and In-
dustrial Worker revolutionists' planning to start an-
-other revolution In unhappy Mexico was the result of
the trial of th (list case of the group at Pearaall.
Twenry-flve years at hard labor will b some punish-
ment for this man's psrtlclpstlon In the killing of the
Texas offlcer Ortl and It will afford him ample time
to get the revolutionary microbe out of his system
lie ought to be able to sober down and come forth
as a reasonably stsld cltlsen at the end o( his career
in the Texas penal institution. And the probabilities
sre thst his aaaoclatea in crime will bear him com-
pany be wllL nut be lonesome during the period of
his long Incarceration.
The revolutionary microbe ha been moat active
In Texas. It hss been perniciously active from one
end of the border to th other and thousand of men
have 'Buffered (rum It presence. In this esse It in-
vaded the Texas cotton fields and got In Its work
among cotton picker who Uecam Imbued with the
Idea that It was their duty to contribute to the state
of anarchy already existing In poor old Mexico by
starting another revolution. Having made up their
minds to revoluto these men csred nothing for the
laws thst wsre supposed to exist on both sides of ths
(.order. Thy regarded human life as something very
cheep on both sldea of the border but fortunately
' they were brought to before they had progressed very
ifar on their chosen career.
5 If penitentiary doors could be closed on the entire
group of revolution promoters on this side of tha
' Illo Grsnde It would do much to discourage such ac-
tivity for there Is no quicker end surer method of
sdmlnlstertng a quietus to revolutionists than by the
mixing of that medicine which puts them where they
csn not de(y the laws (or a good long season.
j Monkeying With Currency Measure.
M There Is a determinad effort being made by op
jhionenta of the Democratic currency revision measure
Qto delay Its passage In the Unload States senate. In
ifsct the allegation Is made around the White House
'that a combination o( the enemies of the bill com-
posed of a few Democrats acting In conjunction with
'the Republican members o( the senate committee on
hanking and currency has been su(flclsnt to virtually
block the progress of th measure since It left the
President Wilson Is considerably perturbed over
the situation as It la bis earnest desire that the bill
vpass aa soon aa possible end another of the pledgee
.given th American people by the Democratic party
Jn the last national campaign be redeemed. He say
the bill must be passed by December 1 and there are
hint of coercion being applied In uch a manner aa
will result In getting the bill through on schedule time.
Members of th senate committee who are charged
-with these dilatory táctica have held a caucus snd
derided in show tblr teeth In the president. Thar
snnounct they will not ba hurrlad and that they will
not ba coerced that the pending bill la very unsatls-
fanory and must be amended to (It their peculiar
rlewa of the situation Thua the matter aianda and
no progress la being made In the consideration of the
matter aa the amata committee haa thrown down
the ban In the matter of public haarlnre and la (pro-
ceeding with the hearing; of the objection ot the op-
ponent of the bill Juat as If there had been no house
action a ltd is a new pleee of legislation that had not
been accorded Democratic endorsement
Thua the matter stands and the Indications are
tr.e power of the president to remedy the alt ustión s
going to be subjected to a very severe and emphatic
Jewish Day pf Atonement.
Saturday Is the Jewish day of-atonement the holi
est day In the entire Jewish cslendar. The biblical
dealgnaUon of the day Is Tomha-Ktrrpurlm later
shortened to Yom Klppur. According to biblical tra
dition. It Is on o( the cycle of holidays Instituted by
Moses for we find It ' mentioned Jn Leviticus xxlll.
21-31 In the list of holidays. Its ceremonial la de
scribed In Lev. xvl. Its ascrlflces In Numbers xxlx.
However the Day of Atonement Is not dependent
on the aacririeai service prescribed In the Bible. Thus
after the destruction of the Temple In the year 70.
when sacrifices ware abolished the Day ot Atonement
was able to survive and of all the holidays of the
Jewish calendar It haa most completely held Its own
In the hearts and observance ot the Jewish people.
Emphasis was Isld upon confession penitence prayer
and good deeds. It became the day of "afflicting
ons's soul (Isaiah Ivlll 3 6) which was Interpreted as
mesnlng tasting from the eve of Atonement until the
following evening. As In the biblical ceremonial con-
fession continues to be an important feature of the
service; yet while confession brings fnrglvenesa of
sins between man and his Maker sins between man
and man are not forgiven until redress Is made for
tn Injury. The eve of Atonement Day therefore be-
comes the occasion for the cassation of teuds and IU-
III. And the Day ot Atonement Is known as the
Bubbsth of Bsbbaths when we are at peace with all
The service of the Day ot Atonement beginning
with Kll Nldre aervlce on the eve of Atonement Is a
continuous one throughout the entire day. The pray-
ers In the synagogue are Intoned In plaintive peniten-
tial tone. The spirit of the mssterly sermon of
Isaiah (Isslah Ml 4-1) which la tha prophetical por-
tion of the morning's reading Is manifested through-
out. True to the traditions and religion of their race
the Jewish oltisens of Kl Paso without reservstlon
observe this annual day of atonement the preliminary
exercise of which will be observed this evening and
It Is an event tho holiness of which can but impress
Sulzer Sure of Impeachment.

nection wth the charges brought In the Impeach-

Starting out at the beginning o( the proceeding
with an appeal to technicalities In an effort to pre-
vent the Impeachment the governor brought his wife
Into the situation with the assertion that his Wall
street dealings were made 'for the purpose of taking
care of a loan she had negotiated which waa giving
him troubls and when this (ailed to stop the pro-
ceedings and testimony waa given to the effect that'
thousands of dollars had been contributed to Bulger's
campaign fund which he appropriated to his personal
uses the only explanation he could give was that the
money waa given to hlmJpersonally to do with aa he
Then It came out that Bulger had attempted to
send an emissary to the men In control of the Repub-
lican state machine. In an effort to enlist assistance
from that source In stopping the proceedings. He
next proposed to Boss Murphy that he would do what
was right 1( the Impeachment was called off. and In
his frantic desperation haa made Just about as asinine
exhibition of himself aa It waa possible for a human
being to do. All these things falling ho hag foregone

At mum Is a new state Rome of Us new wrinkles
do not appeal to State Prosa but he takes uff hi
hat to It who It cornea to the handling of a deficit.
In Texas when a deficit occurs and it has gotten
so we have these fast periods quite frequently the
state Issues non-Interest besrlng "wsirsnts time for
payment of which la uncertain. In consequence.
employes of the state have to stand for discounts
and marchante and manufacturers habitually pad
their price for fear that they may bump into a
deficit. Naturally those who are the best Informed
aa to state finances have tho Inside track In bidding
upon contracta or for supplies. The Arlsona way Is
much the better state Treasurer Edwards however
haa remedied the condition In Texss to some extent
by publishing forecasts of psy days which (orecaata
are of great advantage to .the state's employes and
contractors when they go up against the discount
game. These forecasts are Issued when the deficits
occur. If Mr. Edwards could work out and publish
forersnte of ths occurrence of the deficits as Well
aa of thslr duration the condition would be still fur-
ther remedied Dallas Morning News.
Deficits In the Texas state treasury come with
such amaslng regularity that they have apparently
come to be regarded aa a fixed principle of Texas
lag Interest by ths state on. Its Indebtedness but the
state business. There I no provision made for pay-
poor employe or unlucky holder of thm evidence of
the stales Indebtedness Is compelled to discount the
warrants and pocket the consequent loss. There ta
a cheapness about the manner In which Texas state
finances are handled that doe not conform with the
honor and dignity of the greatest state In the Ameri-
can union and we might take some lessons from
the new state of Alisons in that respect with much
W have had many requests for editorials anal-
ysing the administration currency bill but must
-regretfully decline to fill the long relt want. Usu-
ally we are better prepared to discuss any bill
than tbe fellow who Introduced It. but this Is one
of the exceptions If the country bankers are cor-
rect the proposed leglslstlon spells ruin. If Chair-
man Olasg is right It will be the beat thing that
ever happened. While we are thua lost In a mase.
It seems to us that th best thing to do would be
to trust largely to the wisdom of congress. The
majority realises that It will be responsible to the
people and Is not going to make any mistakes If
It can help It Roswall N. M News.
And that Is about the long and short of it. If
Mr. Olass Is right all Is right and If the banker aré
right all Is wrong. It seems to be generally conceded
that the currency question must ba settled some time
ere ths settlement might as well come now as any
time. The agitation villi be harmful temporarily no
matter what decision is arrived at by congress.
Therefore let us hare It over with.
Having established somewhat of a reputation
as a .cotton growing state through the success of
the Imperial valley farmers In this direction Cali-
fornia now aspire to become known aa a tobacco
growing state. A carload shipment of this product
grown from seed secured from Turkey has Just
been made the first In the history of ths state
and the success of the experiment has been so
marked that the Industry promises to become
somewhat extended. Phoenix (Arts.) Gnsette.
Each succeeding day brings evidence of the fact
that In the sunny Southwest can be grown successfully
snythlng that can be grown anywhere else In the tem-
perate or sub-tropical gone.
The Democratic press of the state seems to be
concerned over the nominee for governor next
yesr. Democratic editors are bent on bringing a
strong Independent and conservative Democrat In
the field against Governor Hunt and are seeking
to unUj the opposition to Artsona's present gov-
ernor on one mart. Already a dosen names have
been mentioned among the candidates for the
Democratic nomination for governor next year and
Uic Democratic editora while admitting that Hunt
hss made a failure as governor concede that he
will be renominated unlesn many of the prospective
candidatet are kept out of the fight. Thm the Re-
publicans and Progressive are ua far' apart as they
were a year ago Is admitted and unless great
progress Is road In another year the candidate
(or governor successful In the Democratic prima-
ries will have easy sailing. There has been soms
talk of a fusion by Republicans and Progressives
' onesparty taking the nomination for governor and
the other for senator but unless An organised
effort is made' soon to rally the scattered forces
of what was once the Kepubllcsn party In Arlsona
the Democracy will not be disturbed. Tucson
Inasmuch aa the Cltlsen Is a standpat Republican
organ of the most hidebound kind what it has to say
regarding Arlsona Democrats won't carry much weight
with anyone having a knowledge of or an Interest in
Arlsona politics hut as lta utterance concerning Ro
deo If it la true. aa tbe Cltlsen aava.tsthar the two
faction of the Republican party In Arlsona are as
far apart as ever with nil likelihood of closing the
afap and II undoubtedly is true the Democrats should
rejoice. Not that thoy .wsre In any political danger
but that there Is a basis for the hope that the Kil-
kenny cats will kill each other off and rid the state
of their presence.
The address of the Texns state board of health
on the subject of houkworm merits the caroful con-
sideration of all the people. Especially shoulJ
local boards uf health suhool authorities and teach-
ers Join the movement to stamp out the disease
snd every parent ought to be an earnest participant
In the work.
From Investigations made thug far It Is evident
hookworm disease la prevalent throughout the
state. It Is espectully prevalent In the rural sec-
tions although the cities are by no means free of
The prevalence of hookworm disease says the
report in the direct result of Improper sewsge dis-
posal. Therofbre. the (Irst step toward prevention
Is to pay attention to sanitation. It comes back
to the old cleanup campaign which Texas commu
nities wsge onco a year . but which ought to be
waged all the time and this matter o.t clean living
is Just aa Important for rural dwellers as (or city'
dwellers. Clean premises and clean bodies at all
time In city or country are essential to good
health and added to aleanllness Is the prompt and
e((ectual disposal ot all sewage
So Instead of cleaning up every spring It Is
Important to keep clean premises clean houses
clean streets clean tablea and barnyarda all the
time. That would pay even If there were no such
thing aa hookworm disease. And when people be-
come so' Indolent that they neglect cleanliness. It
Is a good Indication that- the hookworm disease
has already overtaken them.
Next in Impórtenos Xo the prevention of the
disease I It elimination. It has been demonstrated
' that the disease la easily curable that multiplied
thousands have it and that the way to get rid of
It Is for each to subject himself to the simple ex-
amination suggested by the state board of health
and administer the simple treatment that la neces-
sary to effect a cure.
Hookworm disease Is an Impalrer of phyatoal
mental and mural energy; It reduces Individual. ef
ficiency: It blights ambition; It destroy diligence:
It breed Indolence and Indolence breeds crime; It
undermines health and shortens human life; It
renders on Indlffrrv. to opportunity; It chilla
hope and encourages despair; It Is directly respon-
sible for physical and mental conditions whloh not
Infrequently lesd tq suicide; It Is an Incubator of
III nature and death to Optimism; It reduces th
productive power ot a state; It Is poverty's hand-
maiden and the strengler of thrift.
V .. No child that b afflicted with It and goss un-
i cured can possibly have a good start Id life
Í. Are these not reasons enough why this great
menace to good efficient cltlsenahtp should be
tamped out? Houston Posg.
Th foregoing la a terrible arraignment of the
hookworm -and If it Is guilty of but moiety of what
It Is charged with no mercy should be shown It.
There Is a popular heller that the reptile doe not
thrive In a hot dry climate like that with which El
Paso Is blessed but It. the symptoms of Its presence
as set forth in ths Post's arraignment are correct

Will He Help or Hurl Hun?
Th othvr day I wu rldln on a aireet car a
rathr long journey and fellow-pawngara were a
rather good-looking man and a small boy not yet
emera-ed from childhood My attention waa attracted
to tbem by the effort of the soy made to repeat
the names of the presidents of our republic In the
order of their accession to that exalted dignity and
the child accomplished the task with a single "wob-
ble" he omitted Millard Fillmore who oaraa between
Taylor and Pierce.
1 became Interested and interposed with a Question
as to theVge of the child who Is five years. Then
I was Imperltent enough to remonstrate with the
father and admonish him that what tbe boy needed
was a curb rather than a spur. Bald I "Toa turn
that boy loose do not give him any task let him read
as suits htm study ss he lists. If you put too heavy
a load on It that young mind will stagger perhape
Possibly the man did not agree with me and with
a great desl of pride he went on to relate that his
boy confounded all the Sunday school of bis church
by knowing more of the story of Joseph as recorded
In the Bible than all his class together. "80 much
the mere reason" retorted I "to let his mind grow
in the open by suggestion rather than by discipline.
Do not put that memory in a hothouse; toughen it
under the sun and sky above."
And here we came to the parting and he and the
boy got off ths car. I do not know his name. Haply
I ehall never see him more and never hear of his
If that child Is properly trained he may turn out
a genius to delight and to profit hts fellow-men but
If his mind Is forced the chances are It will break
down and all his remaining days he will be a mental
-weakling.. Tat at the age of three years Horace
Greeley could read; the same Is true of Lord Macau-
ley. One of the remarkable men I have met Is Louis
Brownlow and he scarce remembers when he first
knew how to resd- -He could resd before his mother
knew that he knew the alphabet. But his mind was
not forced and It was ao lusty as it was subtle. In
an hour's conversation he can give valuable sugges-
tions and material instruction to most anybody you
As for the memory if It be not attended by Its
greater brother meditation. It Is something like the
state of ease Balsac observed when he spdke of the
mockery of hospitality without food. We all re
member what a rage possessed Voltaire when Freder
ick the Qreat played the trick on him of concealing
In the closet a freak with a memory who heard Vol-
taire recite an original poem he had Juat composed
one of his unpublished masterpieces. Tbe king al-
ways miserable If. he lived an hour without making
somebody else wretched confronted Voltaire with
his freak who repeated the poem from beginning to
end and his majesty then and there accused the
Frenchman of the unspeakable meanness of plagiar-
ism. 1 have no doubt that many a glowing young mind
has been made praotloally Impotent by forcing It. A
tender young colt cannot bear the burden of a mature
and full-grown hone. If you have a bright boy
allow him to browae in the pastures of learning al-
most at will.
If the young cub that I met en the street car were
mine and I fancied that I could make him what old
Simon Cameron contemptuously called "ons of them
literary fellow" I'd try to do It by suggestion. I'd
Induce :not force him to read Robinson Crusoe. Then
ri lead him to Marrystt and his tales delicious for
tne young mina oí eigni or ten yeaarw.
' Then I'd put In his hand Oliver Ooldsmlth's
abridged histories of Greece and Rome after which
hla mind would long for Plutarch. Then I'd give
him 1 ill-kens' "Child' History of England" and put
Sir Walter Scott In hla hands "Old Mortality"
"Ivanhoe" "The Talisman" "Woodstock." "Quentln
Purward" and all the others.
There you have got an educated boy that beats
the colleges all hollow. Lave him alone. He will
search out those romancista. Bolín and Herodotus.
He will drop Into Tume and Oulsot And then I'd
take him In .charge and Irarist on his reading Shake-
speare from lid to Ud not once but repeatedly. Of
course I'd have him read the Hngllah Bible aU the
Shakespeare and the Bible will give him exprea-
slon even though naturally he were as mute as a fish.
That boy If hs has any Imagination will manage to
read and master thousands of other volumes. And
the man who haa acquired "the reading habit" la not
only educated but he la happy.
In my next I shall try to tell you of another phe-
nomenon who waa exploded by forcing.

tics In our own army and also tn the armles'of foreign
countries. Whereas a few years ago with practically
the same sanitary renditions as are In vogue at the
present time typhoid fever was the scourge- of our
army through the adoption of antl-typhold vaccina-
tion It has come to be an almost negligible factor.
To be more exact a tew years ago there were occur-
ring between five hundred and a thousand caaes an-
nually In an army considerably smaller than our pres-
snt army while now the number of cases ocourring
annually haa been reduced to scarcely more than a
score and those almost entirely among men who hav
not ben vaccinated."
"EI Paso Lodge 17 of Elks" says George E. Wal
lace "has received distinguished consideration at the
hands of the grand lodge this year. Dr. G. H. Hlgglna
hss been made district deputy for the Western dis-
trict and I have been made dean ef the Jndlolaxy com-
mittee. Grand Exalted Ruler Leach says I will be
made chairman of the Judiciary committee next year
and the next will be made grand exalted ruler pro-
viding of course that I am backed for the office by
my home lodge. Dr. Hlgglna la. 1 believe a charter
member of the El Paso lodge and he has occupied
every office In the lodge snd made good In every one
of them. No other member can show such a record
for regular attendance at lodge meeting as Dr. Hlg-
glns and he la entitled to the honor bestowed upon
him by tha grand lodge."

Dan Kedsie of Lordsburg' the nestor and at th
ame time the philosopher and humorist of the New
Mexico press is In the city having experts treat one
of his eyes which has been causing the veteran editor
soms trouble. There is no venum In the keen wit and
satire of Don Kedsie and in consequence even his op-
ponents like him. "Owing to this bum eye" says
Don Kedsie "I sm not going to tske as good a look
at El Paso as I would like on this trip. But you do
not have to watch El Paso to see what she's doing
you can hear her. Of course El Peso Is going to
keep going. ' It Just keeps on doing things whether
It can or not and It's going to keep right ahead on
that line. In Lordsburg we look upon El Paso as our
town and our people and merchants buy considerable
goods here." Don Kedxle's ' friends expect to greet
him back here In a tew days with both eyes In good
supply lssts. Address the Commissioner of Educa-
