288 ton*, but completely outclasses
I he old Maine and the Texas.
Turning now to vessels under con
Btroctlon, wc find five first-class bat-
tleships of 1(1,000 tons displacement,
three of 15,000 tons, two of 14,000
tons, and two of 13,000 tons. They
overshadow the fleet mentioned In the
dispatch and they make the new navy
of the early nineties look like a very
antiquated affair. It would seem, how-
ever, that we are approaching the
limit In size, for the program of new
boats Includes only one battleship,
and this is not to exceed 10,000 tons.
Moreover, the programs of other
powers would lead to the same con-
clusion. Several of them stop short
of 10.000 tons, and England and Rus-
sia are of the only powers which have
projected vessels of larger displace-
ment. It is to be noted, too, that the
Increases In these canes are com para
lively slight, so that Just at the pres-
ent there Is a very evident disposi-
tion to watj for the lesson>i of ex-
perience before venturing upon plans
for battleships much larger than those
now under construction,
This hesitation Is not due, of course,
to any Inability to build them larger,
since merchant vessels of fur greater
tonnage are afloat. But doubt exults
among naval experts as to the com-
parative advantages and disadvan-
tages of very big boats as fighting
machines, and though the check may
be temporary only It Is a decidedly
Interesting fact In naval history.

THE CONVENTION HALL.
The Times is now and always has
b< u oppo i ! to the city Issuing $50,-
UWl in J, -n to cv.-ct a building that
would In lag no Income to the city.
When th,'i. v-i lull: of a combina-

ably i .a id to an issuance of twen-

made i all siiiip/irllng ami would not
only pay for it • If, but would in the
coni', m time become the source of
a baud'one anjiiul revenue to the
city. Em it seeing that a majority
of the p -oplu arc opposed to the mar-
led bouse ..rheme on the alleged
ground that it would entail an extra
burden on small meat shops and green
grocer ii - bv compelling them to pay
two i nt- one for their regular stand
and mu torn market stall,
Denver is one of the biggest con-
VittUon cities: In the country and that
town It; refused, to vote bunds for
a convention hall on the ground that
the money invested in a Idg building
that could only be used two or three
times very four years could lie em-
ployed to better advantage on other
public improvements. HI l'ano is no
mure able than Denver to build cost-
ly convention halls.
As Mr. Turney stated before the
eiii council yesterday afternoon, we
have invited the National Irrigation
congress to meet here and we must
take care of It properly. But the
member.-, of that congress will not
expect the people of JJ1 Paso to spend
$50,000 on a hull for their especial
accommodation, so if the new opera
house proposition Is not accepted, then
the 1 -l tiling to do Is for the city
countdl and Mr. Turney's committee
to get together and arrange for a
temporary convention hall.

Herald to gather some Interesting
statistics : (towing the rapid develop-

which will sail for Lisbon Is stronger
than any wo have ever sent to Euro-

These boats were contributions to the

THE APPENDICITIS HOBBY.
IX. .1 D. Mala burg of Peru, lad.,
is out In an Interview condemning
the wholesale practice of performing
a surgical operation on every case
of appendicitis. He says there are
few cases, If any, where an operation
Is necessary. In a letter to a Chi-
cago paper on tho subject Dr. Mals-
"We notice a great deal In the pap-
ers concerning appendicitis and know
It to be a vi-ry popular disease with
a certain class of physicians. This
hobby has been ridden until the pub-
lic. Including a goodly number of
wild-eyed physicians, have become all
but panic-stricken. Every little pain
is appendicitis, or you are threatened
with appendicitis, or If medical aid
had not been obtained at once appen-
dicitis would have been the result,
or It Is appendicitis and an Immedi-
ate surgical operation Is demanded In
order to save life, etc.
'Now, all of this moonshine Hob In
the imaginative and misguided eyes
of the honest but careless and poorly
qualified physicians, who listen to a
lot of calamity howlers and would be
leaders, who see all pains about the
abdomen through an appendicitis eye.
"It Is true we meet occasionally n
condition which may rightly he ding-
no -d appendicitis, but even In these
oases of true appendicitis there Is no
occasion for this great alarm and Im-
mediately rushing Into a serious sur-
gical operation, which In many In-
stances is more dangerous to the life
of the patient than appendicitis.
"Young and vigorous persons will
usually recover from the effects of
these operations, to which the appen-
dicitis Is a side Issue—since the great-
est misfortune which can befall a
patient Ik a localized abscess, which
may very readily and safely be opened
at the proper time without endanger-
ing tlu- life of the patient.
"Then, if this be true, and time and
experience have proved that It Is, that
the inflammatory eases of appendicitis
will recover under proper medicinal
and hygienic treatment, and that the
worst which may happen to the trau-
matic eases (where foreign substances
may lodge In the appendix) Is a local-
ized abscess, which In Itself Is not
Immediately dangerous to life, and
the simple opening and draining en-
tails but little If any danger to life,
even to the elderly and enfeebled.
"This Immediate surgical operation
that is so popular and wo hear so
much of arid which Is always a brll
Haul success so far as the operation
is concerned the young and vigorous
will recover from, but to which the
elderly and enfeebled must and do
succumb: a very marked example of
which we have but recently had In
New York City.
"This class of patients usually have
the vitality to hold the fort while
nature, with her great army, collects
and rounds up In one center the of-
fending substances in the form of pus
and this pus will many, many times
by thrown off through the |sdnt of
least resistance which nature seems
to select as the least dangerous one.
"Hut If nature's work Is Interfered
with lu this class of patients during
the rounding up period (acute In-
flammatory), there can be but one
ending, and that the undesirable one.
since the offending elements are dif-
fused and cannot possibly be collect-
ed and removed by surgery.
'Before operating ask yourself If
you are not entitled to another guess,
and that If nature, after all. Is not
cold water, then add one table spoon-
ful of butter. Remove from the lire
and add vanilla to suit the taste and
one cupful of chopped nntmeats, stir-
rings until smooth: then pour Into

A Protest Against the T. & P.
El Paso, Tuxs Feb. 24. 1904.
Editor Times:—Will you please al-
low me a little space In your valuable
paper to say tlmt the people of tho
Second Ward are put to very much
Inconvenience In crossing the Texas
A Pacific railroad, from tho fact that
the cars aro sidetracked for four or
five blocks, really from St. Vraln
street to tho stock pen on that road,
It seems to me that, the city could
and should cause the street crossings
to he opened on cither Hill, Park or
Tornlllo streets, so that wagons could
cross without going half a mile or so
out of their way.
We would he glad t.o see tho City
have street, crossings on some or all
of these streets, etc.

unsatisfactory. A large number of

our forefathers to rebel against Eng-

Reflections of a Bachelor.
Marrying a woman for money Is al-
most ns satisfactory as for her to
marry a man to reform him.
A woman will make more fuss over
n wedding anniversary than ft man
will over the death of a rich uncle.
It Is hard to figure out why a pretty
girl wlio could have anybody she
wanted ami he happy, will so often
pick out a man to marry for the sake
or reforming him.
A woman has such an imagination
that when her husband telephones
her ho hits to stay downtown at, night
to give advice to a railway president
she can make herself believe him, and
yet cry all evening over his deceit.—

Monday, when Superintendent Mills,
Vice President James of the Phelps-
Dodge Co., and Milt McLean of the D.
C. visited the ground. Inspection was
finished In less than half, an hour and
rhe discovery bought from Mr. Molder
by Mr. Mills for Phelps-Dodge. The
entire time of the party at the dis-
covery did not exceed 45 minutes. Tho
price secured by Mr. Molder for his
discovery has not been made public
but It is understood to have been lib-
Immediately upon purchase of the
discovery the D. C. sent a corps of
surveyors to locate 320 acres of sur-
rounding coal land, all that a company
may purchase of the government be-
fore doing $5,000 worth of develop-
ment work. In doing this work and
making surveys for private parties,
the corps Is still hard at work In the
coal field. Development is most like-
ly to commence next week. The first
step will probably be to blow out the
face of the discovery in the creek bed.
A better Idea will thus be secured of
the exteut of tho find than other quick
means would give. However, diamond
drills may be put at work at once or
a shaft started mi the coal.
Tuesday Mr. Ricketts, the company
expert, was summoned hastily from
Globe to view tho coal field. After
going over the ground he advised that
work be confined to the basin, begin-
ning nt the discovery, until thorough-
ly explored. Opinion was expressed
liy him that a good working show ex-
isted for the basin to prove a wonder-
ful bed of coal. Dr. Ricketts stated
that he had been through the basin
years ago, but the possibility of coal
there had never occurred to him.
Many prospector.-! can say the same
thing. The canyon where the strike
was made was far from unfrequented.
It Is now mighty lively.
The area of the coal field discovered
by John Molder-is probably five miles
square. It. lien In a big basin dipping
straight Into tho Gila valley. The drill
alone will tell the true value of this
great project. If differing in that re-
spect from no other mining proposi-
tion, but the Indications are certainly
Should the suqccss be met with that
now promises, revolution will bo work-
ed In Copper Mountain and Greenlee
districts. Heawy transportation
charges on coke and coal will
be done away with and a mighty im-
petus given to increased production of
the metals abounding In the districts
and the great Industries sustained at
home by this production. Excitement
over the discovery has been marked
In Morencl this week, but has as yet
spread but little to the outside. Lo-
cal people havd located over 3.000
claims In the coal basin. Prospectors
are now numerous In the section and
a rush Is probably ahead. Oil of
which there Is strong indications just,
outside the coal belt, will probably
also come In for consideration.
A New Concentrator.
Says the Monterey News: The Za-
catecas Concentrating company, the
only company of Its kind In Mexico,
to do an exclusive concentrating bus-
iness, was partially organized yester-
day by ,T. A. Miller of Saltillo, whose
Invention of a new concentrator 1ms
done more than anything else to fur-
ther the working of low grade ore
that could not be handled profitably
otherwise. The newly formed compa-
ny has already arranged for taking
over the Colorado mine In Zacatecas,
125 kilometers from Gutierrez on the
Central railroad, and will Install the
Miller concentrators there in
Aside from the property mentioned
the new company Is formed to ex
plolt and work the tailings and damps
of all old mins* where any other
except the cheapest method of ex
tractlng the metal would mean loss
on every ton. The Colorado mine
has now 250.000 tons of ore carrying
one-half a kilo of sliver per ton, In
sight on the dump and tho working
of this Is expected to yield handsome
returns. Other minor properties are
also in the hands of the company
and the machinery for working them
•will be placed ns soon as It Is pos-
sible. Old abandoned dumps, It is
believed, can ha handled with much
profit by the now company as they
claim to have the only machinery
which extracts the silver satisfactorily
from such extremely low grade ore.
Tho Invention of Mr. Miller Is now
being used In 22 minus -In various
parts of Mexico and Is giving Uni-
versal satisfaction. The principles of
It are well known and its property
of saving the greater portion of the
water used in the concentration Is a
decided advantage. In those now
commonly in use, the water is all
wasted, whereas in Mr. Miller's ap-
paratus more than 80 per cent of it
returns to the source and Is again
readv for use. The residue from the
apparatus Is hauled away by work-
men and the silver ora comes, out In
a highly concentrated form.
The proposition to take up the Colo-
rado mine which is so far from a
railroad Is but the first of the deals
which It is proposed to put through.
If the company can extract the metal,
haul It 125 kilometers to the railroad,
and ship It to the smelters at a profit
then they believe they may go Into
the business In any of the mining dis-
tricts or where old dumps are. with
the certainty that distance from trans-
portation facilities makes but little

United States Gold Supply.
The United States has more gold
than any nation in the whole world.
In the treasury there Is a gold re-
serve of $050,000,OOp, to say nothing
of $322,000,000- .more In the national
banks. And to swell the total we are,
notwithstanding the vast store of gold
In this country, beginning anew the
Importation of the precious metal from
Uncle gam's children have over $12
In gold apiece, which, however, is less
than the citizens of the French re-
public possess. For each of them
there Is a little more than $21 of
gold coin per head. Germany comes
third In tho per capita computation,
the figures being $12.81. Great Britain
has $92.34 of gold per capita and Rus-
sia, with her enormous population of
128.000.000, only $5.04.
The per capita figure for the entire
British empire is a shade under $3.20,
that of folia's enormous horde of 297,-
000,000 souls being only 15 cents.
Here, as In other things, the British
empire exhibits the most astonishing
extremes, for there aro parts thereof
where the per capita of coined gold
Is in great .qxcess. In. Australia, for
Instance, there Is $24.20 In coin as
money for every man. woman and
child. At one time the South African
republic led this, with per capita fig-
ures of $26.34, but now Australia is
the highest. Canada’s per capita is a
Jew cents In excess of $3.
Tho Immensity of tills sum, the
gigantic dimensions of its bulk in
gold, or what Is more startling, In
silver, and its value and purchasing
power In this world, aro bewildering
to contemplate. Distributed among
the population of the land It would
give every man. woman and child
$12. Distributed among the popula-
tion of this city, each man, woman
and child would receive $350.

CHICAGO DEMOCRACY HAS DE-
CLARED FOR HIS CANDIDACY.
Under Leadership of Robert Burke a
Hearst Club Has Been Formed to
Fight the Chicago Harrison Machine
and Deliver the Delegation to the
Chicago, Feb. 25.—Tho banners of
the Cook County democracy are fol-
lowing the fortunes of William Ran-
dolph Hearst. Under the leadership
of Robert Emmet Burke, the society
yesterday organized a Hearst club,
and tho members will seek the nomi-
nation of the congressman as presi-
Under Its constitution the county
democracy cannot declare for any can-
didate for office until after the nomi-
nations have been made, and so the
Hearst club was formed Inside of the
democracy, like a construction com-
pany for a railway corporation. It Is
understood, however, that every mem-
ber of the county democracy is also
a member of the Hearst club, and
thnt the efforts of the one are tho
efforts of the other.
Tho Hearst club was formed in op-
position to the Carter H. Harrison
organization, which seeks to control
the democratic primaries next spring
ip the ten congressional districts Of
Chicago. The Harrison committee ot
fifty Is pledged to elect twenty dele-
gates to the next democratic national
convention, who will support James
Robert Williams of Carml for tho
presidential nomination and Mayor
Harrison for head of the Illinois dele-
gation and Illinois member of tho na-
tional committee. Tho older rival
was organized under the auspices of
the Chicago Democratic club.
Clark's interest* Merged.
Senator W. A. Clark has organized
a new mining company, known as the
Mohave County at World's Fair.
The Mohave county exhibit for the
world's fair was shipped to Prescott
the first of the woek, where it will he
properly labeled and then forwarded
to St. Louis with the other exhibits of
the territory, says the Miner. The
specimen ores aro packed In twenty
i'.ihcs and weighs two and one-half
tons. About fifty mines are repre-
sented. The exhibit Is arranged ac-
cording to the instructions of the de-
partment governing the mining exhi-
bits at the fair, and consist of the ores
that arc being worked In the mills
or shipped to smolters, together with
the wall rocks, the gangue and coun-
try rock. In case of concentrates b»
tng made, samples of the product are
sent. Mohave county Is prolific In
different classes of ore, and this col-
lection will show to advantage Its
free milling gold ores. Us rich silver
chlorides and sulphides. Us galena and
copper ores, in every form these
metals are to be found. An interesting
part of the collection is a beautiful
cabinet of native silver and gold ore,
produced by the mines of the county,
the contribution of R. II. Wartdns, j
which we wtll guarantee will have!
no peer In the mineral display at the j
exposition. Another good featuro Is
the photographs taken by Commis-
sioner Metcalf while gathering the
exhibit. These have been enlarged to
pictures 12 by 20 Inches, and afford a
comprehensive view of the different
mines and mills represented In the
Pneifmonla in Chicago.
Over 3,000 people died of pneumonia
In Chicago last year, in every case
the disease resulted from a cold. Had
the cold been promptly and properly
treated at the outset almost everyone
would have recovered. This state-
ment Is abundantly proven by the fact
that among the tens or thousands
throughout this country who use
Chamberlin’s Cough Remedy to cure
i heir colds, no case of pneumonia has
ever been reported, which shows con-
clusively that this remedy is a cer-
tain preventive of pneumonia. Cham-
berlain’s Cough Remedy has gained

colds and can a!way- be depended
upon. For sale by all druggists.
