BEFORE many months a telegraph
line will connect the Cape of Good
Hope with the Mediterranean eea. For
a distance equal to that from New
York to San Francisco the wire will
run through a region whose inhabi-
tants are as yet untouched by white in
fluence and in fact have rarely if ever
eeen a white man. Special construc-
tion is necessary in order to provide
against all possible accidents and not
the least part of the work ia the clear-
ing of a strip sixty feet wide along the
whole length of the line This is done
to get rid of trees that might fall and
tangled thickets that would obstruct
the operation of the line. Some of the
trees felled are said to be thousands of
years old. Iron poles are used
which areisent from England.
The transportation problems
are stupendous. But in thla
day of resource and Invention nothing
la too great for the young engineer
Otto Beringer(he ia only 30 years old)
to accomplish. Not very long ago six
or eight months were required to reach
the regions whose daily occurrences
will soon be published within a few
hours in the newspapers of every con-
tinent. Yith-all the tremendous pos-
sibilities that are involved in this great
enterprise we mortals look on with
hardly a feeling of wonder. We accept
it all as a matter of course and it ia
with difficulty that we persuade our-
selves that there is anything strange
In telegraphing to Central Africa and
getting an answer in a few hours.
And yet think what would have hap-
pened to you a hundred years ago if
you had suggested such a thing.
The people of San Francisco seem to
be forewarned in regard to the bubonic
plague and let us hope that they are
forearmed as well. It would indeed be
a fearful thing if the plague should get
a hold on our west coast. It would be
practically impossible to prevent its
spread among the yellow men in the
citiea and it is highly probable that
the disease would thus have a destruct-
ive run before it could be controlled.
However it is probable that there is
no more real danger of an epidemic
there than there is of yellow fever in
the south. The best thing that can be
done is to keep cool and clean up the
cities. No disease can live long where
modern sanative methods are prac-
ticed. We do not hear much of Dewey
these days but we don't want to for-
get on Independence Day that he is the
greatest American in a generation.
Nothing can dim the luster of his fame.
At this time he ranks by hia title abov
every other naval officer in the world
wiih the single exception of Admiral
Hopkins'of the British navy and Hop-
kins can not hopa to have such an op
portunity to emblazon hia name for-
ever on the pages of the world's his-
tory as came to the great Dewey on
that bright May day.
It looks very much like bearding
the lion in hia den when an English
syndicate with a hundred million dol-
lars capital starts in to create a stu-
pendous cattle trust aadcorner the
market right ucder the noses of the
anti trust champians of the late but
ualamented legislature by buying up
all the cattle in the great state of Tex-
ae. Yet that io what is about to hap-
pen according to the story of one the
legislators themselves. An Austin
dispatch to the Chicago Chronicle
gives Representative Grogan
of Nolan county a3 authority
for the statement that the
syndicate through George R. Loving
of Fort Worth has already secured
ninety day options on hundreds of thou
sands of fee ad of cattle in the Pan-
handle and west Texas including ev-
ery class of cattle ;and ranch proper-
ties also. The business is done so quietly
taat few people know what ia going on.
Tbe total number of cattle in Texas is
about six-million head assessed at sixty
;million dollars. It will soon be time
for Governor Sayers to call a special
session of his blooming legislature and
look into thia matter a bit.
The cattle itrust

We surely bust.
The annual epidemic of suicides and
murders thatusually comes along abou t
this time of year seems to be delayed
for Borne reason probably republican
prosperity has made it inadvisable for
men to skip the good times. They will
wait for a democratic Administration.
When is the city aamiuioiration go
ing to start in to repair and build side-
walks under the new provision of the
charter? The sidewalks are In worse
condition than they have ever been
and they will not get better by them-
Establishing public watering
troughs would be one of the first thinga
a City Improvement association would
attend to. Figuring on a municipal
water plant would be another pressing
France would probably breathe a
long sigh of relief if Dreyfus would
manage to elude hia guards and get

The mining outlook for New Mexico
was never as bright as at present the
production of gold and copper will ex-
ceed that of any other year by fully
thirty-five per cent. When the rainy
season sets in many mills that are now
idle on account of scarcity of water will
swell the production much more. Las
