El Paso has a chance now to show
what she can do and if she does not
make such a showing as will over-
shadow everything of the kind that
has taken place In the southwest she
will give herself a setback that will
mean much to her. We must impress up-
on our visitors that we are able to carry
to completion anything we undertake
and that El Paso has no competitor as
the metropolis of the southwest.
One of the most urgent reasons why
El Paso should make the corner stone
celebration a glorious success is the
fact that by the way we approach and
manage that affair will be judged to a
large extent our ability to handle oth
er conventions and big crowds in tne
future. We are always inviting peo
ple to come and see us but we must be
verv careful that when they do come
tbev are treated with a broad and
generous hospitality they will not soon
forget. They should be male to feel
that El Paso considers herself bound to
treat visitors from other cities as her
own people and that they are always
The Jarlllas go right along develop
ing steadily without any false or color
ed reports being sent out about their
hidden and discovered wealth. As
our correspondent has statad tne
camp is not for the poor man. Pros
pecting unaccompanied by develop
ment will bring but meager reward
there as elsewhere but a man with
little 'capital can get a foothold
there that will soon be worth many
times what it cost.
Bryan refused to kiss the single
young woman who offered her lips to
him at Brenham Texas the other day
but what do you suppose he would
have done if eleven hundred women
and girls had surrounded him and
compelled him to submit to their
caresses? He would probably have
gone insane as did Hobson
when otner cities want to noia a
big convention they begin to make ar
rangements a year in advance. El
Paso should be at work now on the
Rough Riders' reunion.
Let the merchants aid the commit
tees in every possible way. Make the
parade a thing to be remembered by
citizens and visitors alike.
Most people think of Hobson first as
isser then as sinker.

El Paso warit3 tha Rouh R'ders to
come here for their reunion. There is
every reason to hope that they will
select this city provided the people of
El Paso make any effort whatever to
Becure them. The reunion would mean
the comingr to this cltv of over a thou
sand of the soldiers themselves ac
companied probably by another thou
sand of their friends. Another thou
sand could be expected from the 6ur
rounding territory as visitors and
still another would come pour
ing in from eastern and
northe-n cities to see this splendid
body of men together for probably the
last time. Colonel Roosevelt would
come he has promised and he would
stir the town with his ringing words of
American push and American patriot
i6m. All this would be the very great
est and most successful advertisement
of the city that could possibly be de-
vised. The name of El Paso would be
in the mouth of every one in the Unit
ed Statea chat reads the newspapers
The name would become as familiar as
Dewey or Santiago. People would want
to know all about'us and they would
take the trouble to find out. Press cor
respondents would sent accounts of the
big gathering all over the country-
the world if you will and our position
as the metropolis of the southwest
would be established for all time. But
-if we want the Rough Riders we must
ask for them and we must demon
strate by our conduct of this coming
corner stone celebration that we are
well able to handle a crowd of any di
mensions at any time.

Now less than a week remains be
fore the corner stone celebration. All
arrangements have been completed for
a magnificent affair and there is every
indication that the crowd that will at
tend from all the surrounding territo-
ry will exceed any that has ever visit-
ed El Paso before on a like occasion.
Everything seems to favor the success
of the celebration and all that is need-
ed is for the people to join in and
forgetting all political feeling

work together for the one end success.

little cotton grown in his neighborhood

ample amount of the wild tuber ia
