Aguinaldo by exaggerating the Buffer

Our dispatches from the Beat of war
in the Yaqui country from the Hek-
ald's special correspondent seem to
indicate that the Mexicans have a hard
job on their bands if they intend to
crush the rebellion utterly. It is not
likely that the loss of life will be large
but the prospects are good for a long
and very expensive guerrilla war that
will retard the development of that
section of Mexico immeasurably. Let
us hope that Mexico will succeed in
pacifying the rebellious tribe in a short
time. We here on the border are very
greatly interested in this matter from
a commeroial standpoint as well as a

A few years ago a wild man came
from Borneo who (or which) drew
crowds to see him at the circus of
Barnum the showman. Yesterday
came another strange thing from
there a dispatch saying that the Am
ericans are entirely outdone in the
Philippines and that an indescribable
state of anarchy prevails. There was
always a suspicion that the wild man
came from Kansas and the presump-
tion is fair that the alleged news ori-
ginated nearer home than it would
have us believe.

It Is said that in Canada the use of
bicycles will shortly be forbidden to
Catholic priests on the ground that it
tends to lower their dignity. The pro
jected order has caused much dissatis-
faction among those who cannot
afford to keep driving horses as in
large parishes some means of getting
about in .a hurry is indispensable. Lay
men will see about as much sense in in-
hibiting the use of the bicycle under
such circumstances as there would be
if electrio cars were selected instead
for the victims.

The prospects for a great fall and
winter business in El Paso are very
rood. All our - principal merchants
are putting in unusually large and
varied stocks of goods in expection of
a very large demand. Business has
beenj.steadily on the upward incline
in this city for the past three years
and it seems as if nothing can. prevent
a continuance of the upward move-
ment. Some of our more conservative
business men fear a boom as
much as they do a depression. We
can agree with them that a general in-
flation of values owing to false concep-
tions of what constitutes prosperity
would be very bad for the city. It
might make money f ast-for some people
for a little while but the effects of
such inflation are invariably to cause
a contraction of credits and a strin-
gency more or less serious in propor
tion to the unnaturalness of the infla
tlon that has taken place. But at
present in this city we are unable to
see any signs of such inflation now
or in the future. Perhaps in no in
dustry is the general and unpreoedent-
. ed prosperity of El Paso better shown
than in the building industry
But while prices are high for mate
rials and labor and building is going
ahead at an astonishing rate.it appears
that the supply ia not at all in excess
of the demand if indeed it is commen
surate with it. The growth ia all
lines seems to be steady and of the
sort that will have no reaction. But
it is well to warn our business m:n at
all times against permitting the use of
oredit to be abused. There is a per
centage of risk beyond which it is
never prudent to go even in the best
of times and as the phrase of war
goes never permit the enemy to men'
ace your line of communication with
the base of supplies. ' Thus in time of
great business prosperity aDd expan
sion it is the rule of the great mer-
chants and financiers to. watch their
stocks and investments and credits
more closely than ever always keep
ing open a way of retreat. El Paso
does not want a boom but it wants to
come near enough to see one.

Opposition to the government in time
of war is largely hereditary. The
descendants of the men of the Hartford
