THE WHITE OAKS EXTENSION.
The request made by Morris R. Locke
& Co. that the time of first payment on
notes be extended to December the first,
and that that date be fixed for the com-
pletion of the first ten miles of road,is, to
us, a reasonable one. It is only a differ-
ence of 35 days. The delay caused by
the Cotton addition complication, and
perhaps some others, seems ample reason
for the extension asked, especially as
teams are at work daily and the work
going on. The Timbs cheerfully granted
the extension on its note yesterday. We
could not hear of a single subscriber who
refused to grant the extension. We hope
the committee will get all extensions to-
day and telegraph [Mr. Locke, so that
rails and ties ordered may be shipped at
Still an occasional, and dismal howl
is heard from a New Mexico republican
editor, to the effect that mining and
smelting is being mined in that territory
by the Mills bill and the democratic
party's crusade against protection to

Don't forget that lead went to 2.87* un-

The mining and smelting interests in
El Paso are growing to very important
dimensions and it will take accurate sta
tistics to determine whether there is more
money used here in these industries than
in other commercial pursuits.
| Mexico furnishes u shining example of
! what a protective tariff wil! do for a
country. Within the limits of our sister
republic is embraced a soil as fertile as
the valley in the midst of which is situat-
ed Damascus, and a climate not unlike
that which Hannibal found at Capua.
Sunny Mexico "is vocal no more to high
born Hod's harp or soft Llewellyn's lay."
The climate, however, is perfect, the soil
inexhaustible, the product varied as well
as prolific. All seasons are seed time, all
seasons are harvest. Flowers of richest
perfume encumber the earth. Ceres un
bidden shakes her ample lap. and plenty
gladdens the husbandman While the
valleys are laden with fruit and grain8
and coffee, and sugar, the mountain
hold in their embrace boundless quanti-
ties of precious metals that onlyawait de-
velopment to supply the wants of man.
Before the Caucasian set foot upon the
western hemisphere there was a civiliza
tion in Mexico. Her looms produced a
cotton fabric that might have rivaled
the silks of Lyons in texture and finish.
A teeming population filled her valleys
and worked her mines, but notwithstand-
ing her boundless natural resources,Mex-
ico is bankrupt and her people the poor-
est in North America.
There is no nation under the sun whose
tariff is nearer prohibitory than Mexico.
The government is modeled sifter ours.
It is a confederation of states, but each
state has the privilege of levying a tariff
upon all goods that pass through its lim-
its. A gentleman living in the City of
Mexico bought a stove in New Orleans,
for which he paid $10, When he cooked
his first meal on it he had paid to the
central government aDd to the various
states through which the Mexican Central
railroad passes, over which he shipped it,
$70 tariff taxes, so that his stove cost him j
$86. The tariff on plows is so heavy that
the great body of farmers use wooden
plows and wooden rakes, and Hails to
separate the grain from the straw. The
ordinary buggy, whioh costs $65 in Cin
cinnati, must pay a tax of $200 before it
can be used in Monterey. Everything
that man requires.is taxed in like ratio.
Now the United States has an abundance
of stoves, buggies, buggies, plows, cotton
fabrics and farming utensils of every
kind that the Mexicans want, and would
be glad to get in exchange for his lum-
ber. his sugar, his dye stuffs, etc., but
the two governments say to their citizens;
"You shall not have free exchange of
these commodities. Y.ni shall produce
in yeur own country everything that you
require, even if it costs you twice as
much to do so.—Fresno Democrat.

Postal Savings Bank System.
One of the features of the government
of Qreat Britain is the postal savings
bank system. It is very popular and is
largely patronized by the public. Its use-
fulness is beyond all question. United
States Consul Walling, at Liverpool, has
been investigating this subject and has
given some very interesting facts about
its workings in a report to the secretary
of state. The beginning of the govern
ment postal savings banks was in 1861
under a bill prepared and presented by
Mr. Gladstone. It was entitled "an act
affording additional facilities for deposit-
ing small savings at interest with the
security of the government, for the due
repayment thereof." On the day of the
opening of the first banks under this act
485 deposits were received. One year
afterward the number had increased so
greatly that there were 2,535 offices open
for the accommodation of the public. In
1880 the depositors had increased in num-
ber to 3,781,421, and the amount of money
on deposit was £50,874,838. This in
American money would be $250,000,000.
Deposits of one shilling or any number of
shillings are received up to $150 or 4'30.
The interest paid is 2$ percent, a year
on every fall pound. Should the sum
on deposit reach #200 the interest there-
on will cease until the amount has been
reduced. The government has made pro-
vision for the investment of larger sums
in its securities. The banks will receive
deposits from parents or other relatives
on behalf of minor children. Married
women can also make deposits which arc
beyond the control of tho husbands.
Anothewfeature of the British system
is that tho government guarantees the
repayment of all moneys on deposit with
interest, and also any life insurances or
annuities granted under the act creating
these banks. The lesults of the measure
of Mr. Gladstone liavo been such as to
recommend it to the good will of tho
people of Great Britain. That they do
appreciate it is shown by their liberal
patronage. The cost of maintaining it is
very little, being about five-eighths of 1
percent. The guarantee of the govern-
ment makes the system absolutely safe.
It is in every respect a well regulated
financial institution. Great Britain is not
the only nation which has these postal
savings banks. They are a feature of
the American and Australian British
colonies They have bean engrafted
upon the political system of France, Ger-
many, Austria, I tat; ~ '
