New Deal in City Affairs.
N TUB Democratic cdty primarles held In this city
Tuesday there was a clean sweep made by the nntl-
iidrnln Istrntlnn ticket headed by Tom Jea fur mayor
and the majority received by that ticket was so frreat
aa to be absolutely decisive there can bo no (jues-
t Inning the fact that popular demand (in Kl Paso was
for a chantre of administration.
ho Kelly administration was handicapped by two
serious difficulties weariness with rlnr domination
and the Democratic principle of rotation In' office.
Mayor Kelly has made Kl Paso a faithful and
efficient officer and .as mayor of Kl Pnso has ac-
quired a statewide reputation. A man of sterling
horn-sty and Integrity live and progressive he ha
been faithful In the discharge of every public duty.
In all the heat of the acrimonious campaign that ha
Just closed not one word -was aald against the per-
sonal Integrity of Henry Kelly.
BUI the people of Kl Paso white believing In the
honesty and Integrity of Henry Kelly; also believed
In a change of administration. They do not believe
any individual should be permitted to "hold offlcr for
life or maintain a perpetual grasp on the control of
municipal affairs. They defeated Henry Kolly because
they believed he should have been satisfied with pow-
er covcnlng a fraction morn than two terms but their
love and confidence! have In no wlso abated.
In the selection of Tom l.ou as mayor the people
of 151 I'aso have honored a man who possesses al
the elements and ability necessary to give them a
successful city administration able enterprising nnd
energetic. It Is believed Mayor Iea will measure up
to the highest standard and as he is surrounded hy
a hoard of aldermen that Is absolutely first class the
people of Kl Paso may look forward to the change
of administration with a feeling of the utmost con-
fidence. The Morning Times extends congratulations to
Mayor Iea and hla official family. They have won
a victory of which they may well ho proud. They
are the nominees of El Paso Democracy and las such
entitled to the honest support and favoruhlo cb-operu-tlon
of every loyal El I'aso Democrat He will cer-
tainly have the cordial ruipport of the only Demo-
cratic dally paper In Kl Paso the Morning Times.
Would Revive Reno's Chief Industry.
HfllllK other cities and towns In the United States
hnvA snffererl from that denresatlnn occasioned
by the European war and have watched eagerly for
the coming rifts in the clouds of gloom that are new
being sn happily dissipated through the return of
general prosperity there la one city that could feel
none of the Joyous thrills that are buoying the balance
of the country for the simple reason that its chief
Industry had fsJIed and could not be restored In the
manner common to other sections.
Two years ago the legislature of the state of
Nevada enacted a law that put Reno on the bum
which provided that candidates for divorce In the
state of Nevada must be residents of the state for a
period of one year previous to the filing of such suit.
Prior to that eventful psrlod Reno had been the
gathering place lor nearly all the galled jades of mat-
rimony who sought quick release from the fetters
Imposed by their marital obligations and boarding
house keepers nnd hotel people wore cut glass dia-
monds as big as ostrich eggs.
With the passing o the new divorce law how-
ever those seeking quick surcease for their conjugal
woes were compelled to go elsewhere and boarding
house and hotel keepers boarded up their windows
and howled for a return of the good old days.
The present state legislature has hearkened to this
Macedonian cry by reducing; the residence term to
six months the old period which brought fame and
prosperity to Reno and all Is happiness in that city
again. With the restoration of the old rules there
will soon be a stream of battered relics of matrimony
headed for Reno again the boards will bo taken off
the. windows of the boarding; houses and hotels and
the town will again come into Its own and happiness
Is now depicted on the countenance of every citizen.
All of which goes to prove the truth of the old
axiom that everlastingly at It will bring success. The
people of Reno though cast down by the collapse ol
their chief Industry never gave up hope of being able
to convince some coming legislature of the grreat wrong
perpetrated on that town. In two years they have
succeeded in again putting Reno on the map.
Glimpses of the Past.

Twenty-four Years Ago Today.
Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Ellis left for Portland. Ore.
judge J. B. Crosby William Crosby and Z.
Clardy left for Doming N. M.
9 W. H. Wiggins arrived from Kansas City.
The committee In charge of the site for the new
army post held a business meeting.
The acequia was brim full of water thanks to the
efforts of Ditch Commissioner Merrill.
Contractor McDougall who was to bore the ar-
tesian well for the city was putting forth every effort
in order to begin the work of boring next week. He
expected to find sufficient water at a depth of 200
EI Paso lodge. Knights of Pythias celebrated the
twenty-seventh anniversary of the founding of the
order. Dr. P. 8. Jenkins has. been chancellor com
mander of the lodge since Its organization in this
city and Judge Townsend was only recently re-elected
to the position of captain.
Major W. W. Robbdns arrived from Ban Antonio
to spend' a few days.
Evidently New Mexico wool growers crin look for
an early advance In prices. J. P. Van Houten of
Shoemaker yesterday received a telegram from Salt
Lake City dated February 7. statins that buyers rep J
resenting Germany are reported on their wky west to
contract wool from growers and that the outlook. Í?
an advance In prices Is most excellent. Lam Vegas
(N. M.) Oplic.
All of which means more prosperity for the New
Mexico sheep growers who were presumed to have
been ruined by the new Democratic tariff measure.
A street car line costs a whole lot of money to in
stall and more to maintain. The Jitney car Whteh
runs on schedule time over the same streets Is on
the contrary. Inexpensive and requires no tracks
and is operated by one man. Roswell (N.'M.) News.
The Jitney car service has met with such popu-
lar favor everywhere that Its opponents find It dftfl-
cult to bring to bear any restrictive influence.- The
Jitney always gets there with the goods.
Now that Villa has obtained! the presidency Of
Mexico what Is he going to do with It? Being presi-
dent In the sister republic confers about as much dis-
tinction as a low-grade title does In Europe. Tucson
(Ariz.) SUr. i
General Villa has not assumed the direction of
affairs In Mexico through any desire for personal
aggrandizement. He is laboring and fighting for the
best interests of the entire Mexican people.
The Shannon Copper company located at Clifton
Ariz. will open its minos and start Ita smelter as soon
lis things can he made ready ami its necessary force
uf men reassembled. The management has received
orders from the company headquarters in New york
to resume operations at once In both mines and smel-
ter. It has been cloned down since September on
uccount Of the low prlcti if copper. A small force of
men have been kept emjiloytid It the experimenting
work that the company bus been conducting and the
store has also been kept running to accommodute the
employes who rertraiined during the shutdown. The
company ireulctl Its employes very generously and
allowed them their -houses rent free during the time
the smelter was closed.
No more Is lovely woman to tie permitted to
monopolize all the gorgcousness of the rainbow . In
tho matter of raiment. More man is about to give
the dear creature a run for her money and fairly
and effectually eclipse her In the matter of peaenck-
age. Hcdied In the radiance of the early dawn man
will soon be prepared to go about hla business confi
dent In hla ability to make the world sit up and
take notice.. The drab main of the species Is to be
moro. Pink pert and pictorial and hitherto pre
posterous pink is to be the prevailing shade in the
clothes of men this summer according to the forecast
of merchant tailors recently In session in Chicago.
To the man with pink hair nnd whiskers i't will cer
tainly be a most effective and bewitching combination.
Tho female of the species may without unnecessary
delay prepare to occupy a back seat wo will soon
have them going.
More diversified farming Is to be engaged in In this
year by the farmers of tho Olla valley of Arizona
sayn W. K. Barnes traveling representativo of the
Southern Pacific railway who recently made a trip
to Globe Safford and Miami. Mr. liarnos said that
the plan of diversifying crops will he thoroughly dla-
ctiHaed at the Car mars' institute to he. held In Safford.
The farmers Intend to plant more wheat this yea
than ever before and particular attention Is to be
given to hog and fancy stock raising Graham coun
ty now lends In angora goat raising there being not
less thnn 60000 of these animals in the county at
West Texas Is very much excited at this timo over
the alleged discovery that has been anadc by Thurman
McGregor a young man of Haskell Texas. Young
McGregor who Is but an . ordinary farmer boy 1b
said to have discovered a substance with which he
can Insulate magnetism and the possibilities of this
discovery if It Is true are beyond human compre-
hension or calculation. It would do away with elec-
tricity steam gasoline and every other form of motive
power and revolutionize the world's motive power.
The young man cltuims ho can make a motor run
with no other power than n common horseshoe mag
net the only expense of running being for lubricating
oil. Ho says ho is prepared to dentonst rate these
things to men of financial ability who are Interested
In the subject.
l.'nlted States authorities at San Antonio are said
to huve documentary evidence In their possession of
a conspiracy on tho part of Mexicans for the purpose
of seizing Texas New Mexico Arizona and California
and restoring those states to the republic of Mexico.
Japanese and Indian aid was to bo enlisted in the
enterprise and the lands taken from tho Indians
were to be restored to them under this new scheme.
Klght signatures are attached to the document and
It la claimed tho conspiracy involves a number of
prominent Mexicans two of whom are under arrest.
The men who are alleged to be concerned in this
conspiracy should all be arrested and sent to one
of the Texas state asylums as they are too crazy to
be permitted to run at large. Such a dream could
originate nowhere but In a disordered brain and
only creates commiseration for those who were fool
ish enough to think such a procedure possible.
Frederick Palmer the newspaper correspondent
who will accompany the allied armies when they be
gin their offensive against the Germans declares
there is going to bo a tremendous slaughter of men
In May. He quotes commanders as saying that great
events aro coming after which there will be peace
It is said that the samo sentiments are often heard
expressed in Germany and from this it would seem
that the time Is not far distant when army Is going
to be hurled on army and It is going to be a survival
of the fittest. Armies of millions will clash In mortal
combat until one or the other Is actually wiped out
of existence and the fighting already in progress will
appear hut child's play dn comparison.
During the last few days 184 men have been added
to the mining force of the Calumet & Arizona Mining
company In the Warren district of Arizona. Thcso
men were easily securod in tho district and nothing
was said about this additional work because It was
feared that It might be the reason of bringing men
to the district at a time when all required were al-
ready there. These 134 men are today working In
th lloatson mine. The addition of mor miners InS
Bisbee naturally menus more work for the big C. & A
reduction plant in that city more men to carry It on
and as a result. Increased prosperity for the company
and its stockholders.
In response to an appeal made by the California
congressmen the senate Indian affairs committee has
added an appropriation of 130000 to tho Indian bill
which will be used to provide lands for homeless nnd
destitute Indians In tho state of California. And
steps Bhould be taken to see that the lands arp pro
vided at n reasonable cost.
A St. I .nils man who taught his wife to drink and
later sought a divorce on the ground of her drinking
was refused that boon by the court hearing tho ap
plication. And the court was right. Any Individual
who teaches a woman to become so unwomanly de.
serves all the trouble his victim can possibly mukc fur
Fifteen Years Ago Today.
Mrs. Charles A. Fox gave b reception at her home
on Myrtle avenue in honor of her sister Mrs. Clutton
Misa Henrietta Gregory and her sister Mrs. Weil
left for an eastern trip.
A beautiful social tribute was paid Mrs. W. W.
Turney by Mrs. E. G. Myers at Austin Texas.
At a meeting of the committee on public Improve
ments of the Chamber of Commerce a plan of work
was outlined. There were present Messrs. G. Emer
son John Julian J. A. Merrill W. H. Tuttle. Absent
members of the committee were R. C. Llghtbody
John Sorenson and Richard Capíes.
The county Republican convention was something
of a Dillon love feast. The collector of customs was

The construction of a hew railway station street
paving and the building under way and that con-
templated will make 19 IS an epochal year for Silver
City. Silver City (N. M.) Independent.
Silver City is one of the liveat little cities In New
Mexico and stretching ahead of her people is a moat
magnificent future if they keep up their present rate
"It has been suggested to tho Liberal to find outa .
if the A nizona legislature was running the New Mex-
ico legislature a race to see who could do the least in
the most time." Lordsburg (N. M. ) Liberal.
The fact that so little has been accomplished by
either legislature may be a good thing for the people
of both states. The trouble with the average legis-
lature is it usually does too much.
Frank Coffin and family returned from Missouri.
Jack Bond of the Texas & Pacific railway was In
the city shaking hands with his friends.
The press dispatches from Europe almost dally
bring tho usscrtlon (that If the food supply being fur
nished Belgium by the United States Is diminished
the Belgians will die. " The constancy with which
these assertions are made seems to indicate a deter-
mination on the part of England France and Ger-
many tho powers responsible for these conditions
to fasten the responsibility of feeding the Belgians
upon the United States Just as long as our people will
continue the work and It la a condition that reflects
quite seriously upon those nations most directly In-
The Day's Best Stories.
Some timo ago a hobo called at a suburban home
for food and was promised a good dinner if he would
assist In cleaning up the lawn. Being hungry the
hobo acquiesced; and was put to work carting soil in
a wheelbarrow. f
"Bay" remarked tjie gardener smilingly after
watching Willie get away with two or three loads "do
you always juggle a wheelbarrow like that?"
"Surest thing on earth" answered the hobo. "Any
thing the matter with my performance?" 1
"You are not hooked up right" returned the
gardener. "You ought to push a wheelbarrow and
not pull it."
"I know" admitted the tramp with a long-drawn
sigh "but I can't stand the sight of the cussed thing.
Tho selection of El Paso as the next meeting place
by the admen of Texas or the Associated Advertising
Clubs of Texas as the organisation lu officially known.
Is but a verification of the affinity Idea. It wus but
natural the livest organiiuttlon In Texas should accept
an invitation to come to tn livest city In Texas with
their next convention.
This protracted silence on the part of Col. T. R.
is becoming one of the most painful developments of
the political situation.
JUST THE BOY HE WANTED.
The aim of golfers Is. of course to go round the
course with as few strokes as possible and the man
with the least strokes wins the game. A player
realized this once-and decided to engage a caddie who
would help him.
"Caddie" he said to the boy who came up to him.
"can you count?"
"Yessir" said the boy.
"Can you add up?"
"Well what's five and seven and four?"
"Come along' said the golfer "you'll do." And
he engaged the boy on the spot.
