It is to be hoped that the exile of the
gallant Hobson has cured that worthy
young man of the idiotic kissing habit.
The Times proposes that the citizens
of El Paso hold a mass meeting, and af-
ter inviting the Texas legislature to
visit this city in December next, ap-
point a committee to get up a midwin-
ter carnival. The expenditure of a lit-
tle energy will do it.
The man or men who work a public
trust for a private snap will be brought
to an accounting by tbe people, so sure
as the sun rises and sets. It may be to-
morrow, and then it may not be until
next year, lint the expose that must
come will unquestionably arouse the

cause he refused to falsify facts when
instructed by his government to furnish
the Czar with a table of France’s defense

to perform such work.

John J. Ingalls promises tore-enter
politics in Kansas. He predicts the re-
nomination of McKinley in 1900 and in-
timates that he will stand for imperial-
ism and military domination. Mr. In-
galls cannot claim to be a prophet, for
under the coaching of Hanna the pres-
ent administration has already declared
for imperialism and military domina-
tion will follow as a necessity if McKin-
ley is re-elected in 1900.
Champions of the administration’s
Philippine policy, in estimating the
cost of Hanna's war of conquest do not
take into account the lives of American
soldiers who are being sacrificed. The
Republican boodlers count everything
by dollars. And why shouldn’t a few

a new field for trusts and create more

A WEEK or so since the mayor of El
Paso privately appointed a committee
of three, members of the city council,
