THE CHAMBER WIDEAWAKE
The Herald is reliably informed
that President Freudenthal and Sec-
retary Russell of the chamber of com-
merce are preparing a letter to the
officers of .the Kaneas" Grain Dealers'
association and the Kansas State Mil-
lers' association which will convene at
Topeka March 6 and 7 and on the even-
ing of the 7th will start direct for
Houston Texas in a train made up of
Pullman and baggage cars inviting
them to visit El Paso on their home-
Representatives of the grain and
elevator interests from Chicago St.
Louis Kansas City and other western
grain centers will accompany this ex-
cursion. Representatives of the North-
western Miller of Indianapolis the
Modern Miller of St. Louis the Grain
Dealers' Journal of Chicago the Amer-
ican Elevator and Grain Trade also of
Chicago and' other trade journals will
be with the party and the associated
press which supplies hundreds of
newspapers of the country will not
overlook this excursion so that the
wisdom of inviting the party to visit
El Paso cannot be questioned.
The following letter addressed to
Secretary Richardson of the Houston
Business - League by George H.
Hunter of Wellington Kan. president
of the Kansas State Millers' assocla
tiqn under date of January 12 is pub-
iahed by the Houston Post:
"ReDlvlncr to your generous in vita
tion of the 10th instant am pleased to
advise vou that the Kansas State
Millers' association and Kansas Grain
Dealers' association will meet in
Tooeka March 6 and 7. Excursion
train will leave Topeka on the Atchi-
son. Topeka and Santa Fe on the
evening of the 7th and come direct to
Houston arriving tnere eariy on ice
mornincr of the 9th. We expect to re
main In your city all day and until
bedtime (we will occupy the sleepers)
and will be ready for any program
of entertainment your people map out.
The suggestion of a trolley ride over
the city Is a dengntrui one ana we
trust it will be included as we wish to
see Houston thoroughly.
"If convenient we would like a ride
upon Buffalo bayou for we like
you are looking for improved hlgh-
. ways to the sea. .
"I know our people will be delighted
to spend a full day in Houston and I
trust the visit wiil be not only profit-
able and pleasant to the Kansas mil-
lers and grain dealers but to the peo-
ple of your city as well." I
This large delegation estimated to
number 250 from the greatest wheat
growing section of America is com-
posed of successful and prosperous
business men who have gone into the
market! of the east as well as the
south and In many countries of Europe
and established a demand for their
products not only in competition with
the older wbeatectlons of this coun-
try but those of every wheat aid flour
producing country in the world. Kan-
sas today takes first rank as a wheat
producing state; her sister on the
south now a territory but soon to be-
come a state has left behind many of
the older states which formerly boasted
of a great wheat production.
El Paso would welcome the sons of
the sunflower 6tite and receive them
in her best bib and tucker and enter-
tain them in a right royal way.
When the healta officer of the state
of Texas was engaged last fall in ful-
minating deorees of nonlntercourse
against the people of Louisiana put-
ting a stop to toe running of railway
trains the transportation of freights
and passengers and the transmission of
the malls it was believed In high legal
quart srs in Loulelana that such action
by Texas was a violation of interstate
comity an unlawful interference with
interstate commerce and altogether
such an assault on the rights and in-
terests of the state of Louisiana as war-
ranted inquiry and adjustment
by the United States courts. The sub-
jeot matter was accordingly carried to
the supreme court of the United States
and was there duly presented by coun-
sel representing the two states. After
several months of consideration the
highest court declared that there wa s
no controversy between the two states.
In a wjrd if any wrongs had been suf-
fered the victims were individuals
and not the state of Louisiana and the
state as a state could not repreeent
those individuals. Whether any
wrongs had Jbeen committed or
whether there were any le-
gal means by which redrees
coull he sought were not considered
to be-in the purview of the court; bul
the onlyjquestion to be decided was as
to whether there was any controversy
between the two states as states. This
! question was answered in the negative
and so the-compiaint oi Louisiana was
rejected. "The question now arises
with'the business men of this city"
says theJNewOrleans Picayune" 'What
are they going to do what can they do
to defend themselves from the embar-
goes imposed upon their commerce by
trade rivals in other states? " Feder-
al Interference Is out of the question
and state laws cannot be . applied to
Interstate controversies. This is a
matter for profound'coneideration. "If
retaliatory measures would accom-
plish anything" adds the Pioayune
"they would be in order; but unfor-
tunately they are not promising.
Some other device mu9t be tried." It
is a "quest ion for chambers of commerce
and boards of trade to solve.
This Is the sort of Beverldge that
the Hoosler senator gave the whole
oountry in his great speech recently:
Mr. President the times call for
candor. The Philippines are ours for
ever "territory belonging to the United
States" as the constitution calls them.
And just beyond the Philippines are
China's illimitable markets. 'We will
not retreat from either. We will not
repudiate our duty in the archipelago.
We will not abandon our opportunity
In the Orient. We will not renounce
our part in the mission of our rac
trustee under God of the civilization
of the world. And we will -move for-
ward to our work not howling out re-
grets like slaves whipped to their
burdens but with gratitude for a task
worthy of our strength and thanks-
srivinir to Almlerhty God that he has
marked us as his chosen people.
henceforth to lead in the regeneration
of the world.
The country drank deeply and is calling
for "more of the same."
Among other subjects espoused by
the merchants' and manufacturers'
association of Los Angeles last year
was the establishment of a railway
postoffice between that city and Al-
buquerque; the dally publication of the
weather reports of the city in eastern
cities; the attempt to produce artificial
rain; the request for the appointment
of an interstate commerce commis-
sioner from the Pacific Coast; a vigor
ous protest against the passage by the
United States senata of the reciprocity
treaties with the West Indies and
France; and at present they are as
sistlng the fruit growers In their just
demands against the arbitrary action
of the railroad companies in regard to
the shipment of citrus fruits. Our
chamber of commerce will be heard
from at the proper time.
The telephone has given Ihe world
a great many stories. General Lee
tails one of the best to a writer in the
Philadelphia Saturday Evening -Post
It was after he had gone to .Cuba and
the manipulators of the telephone were
not familiar with his name and reputa
tion. "What name is that?" asked
the operator. "Lee Fltzbugh Lee"
was the response. "Spell it please."
"F-I-t-z-h-u-g-h L-e-e." Thank you.

The mysteries of the mail-bags
would form a good subject for a novel.
Id the mails recently received in Mil
waukee were the ashes of a lady of that
city who died while visiting Germany
and was cremated there.
The most -expert performer in the
British army is the censor. He is as
smooth as a magician in his revelations
of the Boer losses but how well he
does keep up his sleeve the truth
about British losses!
The Hon. Golden Rule Jones of To-
ledo says it cost him about $38000 to
run for governor of Ohio. Such ex-
travagance! "The man with the gun" has per-
formed his task in Cuba. " The man
with the hoe" ought to get to work
Mr. Hoar's powder is not smokeless.
It reveals tha presence of his gun if
not himself even in the far off Philip-
pines. It is not an ostrich that Mr.
rides it is a hobby.

A Woman's Club Joins the Abileae
Reporter In Its Fight.
The Abilene Reporter is overjoyed
in having a women's olub behind it in
its fight on the town oow. Club women
are rarely milkmaids and of course
would rather have roses than milk.
Tbe Reporter in announcing the alli-
ance between itself and tbe club afore-
said in the war against this special
kind of cow says:
The club women of Texas In a body
are after the town cow and even "a
little country editor" backed by such
a formidable army may be 'able to
make the fight a ' warm one for some
great and wise mayors who oppose
progress. Read what the Federation
of Women's clubs has to say in our
women's club columns today.
It is rather unfortunate that the re-
porter immediately follows this up
with the paragraph as printed :
Simply because Abilene is cleaner
than other towns is no reason why she
should not do better.
Perhaps the oow has brought about
the cleanliness of Abilene or at least
contributed to it. For it is the habit
of the beast to eat everything that
comes in her way and the argument
has been made that she is tbe best
scavenger on earth. If such para-
graphs find their way into the Reporter
very often those people who are
afraid of germs and the like and want
tbe city kept clean mry array them-
selves on the side A tbe oow and
against the clubs arid the paper.
