Panama Canal Tolls Complications.
Developments ut Washington during the past few
daya Indicate a complete change of front on the Pana
ma cunai tons qucbiion in that there exists a very
strong probability that the provision of the canal act
exempting American roaetwia shipping from the pay

boon upon American shipping Kngland hag strenu

How Big Business Meets the Situation.
There has Just been leaned by the Chose National
Bank of Nsw York one of the largest banking tnatl-
tutlons of the country a little brochure that wall Il-
lustrates how Big Business la proceeding to take It
medicine. The bask declares:
"We believe la our country the United Statea of
America We believe In her constitution her laws.
her Institution snd the principles for which h
stands. We believe In her future the past Is ae
cure. We believe In her vast resources her great
poselhilitlee yes more her wonderful certainties.
"We believe In the American people their gs
nlus their brain and their brawn. Ws believe In their
honesty thslr Integrity aad their dependability. Ws
believe that nothing can stand In the way of their
commercial advancement and prosperity.
"We bellsvs that what are termed "times of busi
ness depression' are but periods of preparstlon for
greater and more pronounced commercial successes.
"And we believe that in our country are being
worked out great problems the solution of which
will be for the benefit of all mankind."
Truly that Is a patriotic creed ringing with ten
ulne Americanism and depleting to the world a
large Just exactly what American patriotism stands
for. Big Business Is setting the proper lights for
Utile Business and all other Interests.
Money Is Easier in the East.
It is the most cheering news that continues t
come from every portion of the United Statea re
gardlng the Improvement In business conditions the
resumption of Industrial activity and tha growing
confidence In all bualness circles. Money is distinct
ly easier In both New Tork and Chicago and prom
Ises to continue in that very satisfactory condition t
Chicago newspaper 'dispatch says:
"The larger Chicago banks have marked down
their ( per sent call loans to 6 aad 1 1-1 and there
has been loans made In the market by outside banks
coneiderably below the minimum figure. In fact
one Urge Eastern bank loaned money for a short
period as low as 4 1-Z per cent less than a week
ago after the borrower who carries large balances
fn the local banks had been asked 8 per cent.
"This indicates that the New Tork banks. In the
absence of speculative demands are being forced to
seek other fields of employment for their surplus
money and that they ara becoming competitors in
tbla field with the local institutions. Docul bank
era however are welcoming a moderate amount of
this competition on the theory that It will aaable
them to reinforce their reserves."
The National City Bank of Nsw Tork the largest
ffnanelal Institution In the United Statea has made
application to Join the new federal rsserve system
and that action effectually disposes of previous ru
mors to the effect that this bank on account of Its
objection to certain features of the new law would
surrender Ita charter and organise an Institution that
would completely overshadow the New York re
glnnal reserve bank. Of t'na 7(09 national banks
doing business In the United States but two have no
lifled the authorities at Washington of their declina
tion to enter the new system.
The next session of tbs Texas state legislature is
to be asked to submit to the voters of the state a con
stltutlonal amendment providing for the complete

board of regents of the university have submitted res
olutlon to the board of directors of tha college ask-
ing their co-operation in submitting the plan to tha

Gossip from the State Capital.
By H. Bedlchok.)
Tie piaster crumbled from the corner stone of
the land office the other day revealing ths following
inscription: "Austin Texas Lodge No. 11 A U 1161"
recalling to the few surviving members of the Ibdge
the ceremonies fifty-six years ago when that historic
alug of limestone was put Into place.
It is a sturdy old-fashioned ugly dullish red
oblong block of a building transfigured In the Imag-
ination of O. Henry Into a "caatle-llke building cap-
ping the summit of a bold bin."
Giving; an Empire Away.
Originally the public domain of Texas consisted of
a measly 146 million acres snd the bulk of the same
has been parcelled out to cittsens through the land
office. Millions upon millions of dollars are handed
over ths counter In a Uttle bat-emelllng room heated
witn an antiquated box-stove the fuel for which and
for some twenty others of the same vintage In the
building Is carried by the armful by the old Janitor
wno nas been there for forty years. Here the aris-
tocratic check or the millionaire gets acquainted with
the swsaty two dollar bill from the sock of the actual
asttler. The morning mall rains blue money orders
and ocoaalnnally the express man labors up the afore
said "bold hill" with an old cigar-box containing from
rive to seven thousand dollars.
Surveys In the Good Old Days.
In the biennlsl report of Commissioner J. T. Robl-
son for the two year ending August II 1110 on
page 11 you may find the following complaint:
"With the final disposition of the public school
land we will come to deal with conflicting surveys.
On account of the lack of system In surveying the
public domain many surveys overtop others."
It la interesting to note how O. Henry who worked
as a draughtsman In the land office from 1117 to
ism. playfully records the fact above so bluntly
stated. Here it Is on page 246 of "Whirllirias" :
"In those days and here la where the trouble
began the state's domain was practically Inexhaust-
ible and the old surveyors with princely yea even
Weetern American liberality gave good measure and
overflowing. Often the Jovisl man of metes and
bounds would dispense altogether with the tripod and
ohain. Mounted on a pony that could cover some-
thing near a 'vara' at a step with a pocket com-
pass to direct his course he would trot out a survey
by counting the bsat of his pony's hoofs mark his
corners and write out his field notes with the com-
placency produced by an act of duty well performed.
Sometimes and who could blame the surveyor?
when the pony was 'feeling hi oats' he might step a
little higher and farther and In that case the bene-
flclary of the acrlp might get a thouaand og two more
crea in hla survey than hla scrip called for. But
look at the boundless leagues the state bad to spare!
However no one ever had to complain of the pony
underetepplng. Nearly every old aurvey in the state
contained an excess of land."
O. Henry His Mark.
The trail of O. Henry among the records in the
land office ia not hard to follow. Examine the old
tattered mop of Kent county. In faujtleae penman-
ship you are apprised thst the rasp was 'Complied and
Drawn by W. 8. Porter." but the Inimitable sketch
at the top of the map Is O. Henry's real signature and
trade-mark. It Is about twelve Inches long and in
the foreground la a telephone or telegraph line of two
sagging wires. In the left hand corner la a nevhnntoi

Heard on the City Streets.
"Boys with alrguns allngshoto and 'nigger-shooters'
have become such a nuisance" says Chief Davis
of tbs polios "that we will have to suppress thsm. aad
my msn hsve Instructions to arrest and bring to tbs
station every boy caught using an alrgun a slingshot
or a 'nigger-shooter' within the city limits. Several
people bars been shot In the face with alrguns snd
one little fsllow may lose an eye. Boys are boys the
world over and cannot resist an opportunity to shoot
at a tempting target and ths most tempting target Is
snotbsr boy. It never occurs to thsm that their Joks
may cause a comrade to lose an ere. They have no
desire to malm any one for life but they will do It
unlsss we suppress them. An alrgun ts a dangerous
present for a boy. The past few days we have had
many complaints about boys with slingshots and they
must stop using them."
"The Santa Fe road's business into and out of Kl
Paso this month" say W. R. Brown "Is about the
eame It wss last January. But I cannot say the same
for our business st New Mexico points. However ths
outlook Is good and we are expecting sn unusually
large business this ysar. Great development work is
now In progress all along our line through New Mex-
ico and the Panhandle. We are probably hauling
more gooda out of El Paso thsn at this time last ysar
which apeaks well for the growth of this city's Jobbing
Interest- I believe the entire Southwest will experi-
ence great prosperity this year."
"Tne more I hear from Panchp Villa" says J. W.
Eubank "the better I like him. He first won my ad-
miration for staying with Madero after he had been
elected president and then refusing to recognise a
government created by assassination. And now he
announces that he has no presidential ambition; that
hs is a fighting man and not a diplomat or statesman
and Is therefore loyal to Carransa. You know there
has bsen plenty of rumors to ths effect that Villa
wanted to succeed Huerta as dictator of Mexico and
that he would at the proper time tabs hold of ths
reins of government and ignore Carransa. But Villa
aaya this is not true and that he recognises Carransa
as the leader of this revolution. That sounds liks we
will have peace In Mexico if the rebels win."
