The navy department has received an offer of f8.000.000 for the battleship Indiana, Iowa and Massachu setts and the protected cruiaers Mln : Despoils and Columbia, according to a dispatch from Washington. All of theae vessels are in first-class fighting shape, the dispatch goes on to sav. and the three battle-ships took part la the great review ot the At lantic fleet in November. But it is , believed that the prevalence of the new dreadnought type will make them all obsolete in from two to seven years. ' The opinion is held at the navy department that the bidder wishes to purchase them with a view to disposing of them at a good price among the strongest South American repub Ilea Argentina. Chili and Brazil and possibly others. If these countries can satisfactorily finance the deal. At first blush one is inclined to hail with pleasure the opening of a marker for second-band warships as well as for second-hand clothes. It seems to offer the nation a chance to get something besides gun practice out of its cast-off naval apparel. But on further reflection this elation fades. The would-be buyers of second hand' warships prove themselves by their offer to be no more satisfactory than the buyers of second-hand clothes. They don't want to give any thing for what they get. Only f 8,000,' 000 for a bunch, "of. Warships in good condition that would cost several times that sum anywhere! Ridicu lous! ; . . . The government will have to talk up if it wants to get anything out of those fellows. It ought to tell them that it would rather give the ships away to some worthy person ' than make a present of them to secondhand warship dealers. Also that it doesn't have to sell them anyway, unless it wants to. . , And as the "chaffering" seems to have Just begun, the Chicago Inter-Ocean takes the liberty of suggesting that the officials pay no attention whatever to the efforts of the secondhand warship dealer to belittle the value of the ships by saying that they are worn almost through at the bows, that new binnacles will have to be put In every one of them and that there is really little demand for second-band warships this season anyway. They should be ready with the prompt reply that you won't find any better stuff on the market than that . In those warships, that the government is simply getting rid of them be-, cause they don't fit in the docks neat ly and that It has already received an offer from another second-hand war ship dealer that is twice as good as the one under consideration. If the Washington officials and we Include congress in the list don't look sharp they wUl find themselves letting this cast-off navy apparel go for a song and then have the familiar, painful experience of seeing how extremely valuable it looks after it has been cleaned and pressed and brought into the service of another. ' Incidentally, this opening of a market for second-hand warships fur-. nlshes another argument against woman's suffrage. No man who has ever had his best suit traded by his Wife to a second-hand clothes dealer ean be blind to the danger of a female administration carelesaly letting the best warships in the bunch go by mistake. Again word comes from Havana that the cause of the destruction of the battleship Main was an explo slon from without. This Is not on the authority of the Inspecting board, which has completed its work. But among such a large number of men as were employed on the wreck It must have been practically Impossible to keep secret the condition it was found to be" lfi. The Information generally regarded as authentic. if it had not been for the blowing up of the battleship and the attendant loss of life among the officers and crew, there la-tittle doubt that President Mckinley would hava been able to prevent the war with Spain. But that catastrophe inflamed the Amerl can people and the cry, "Remember the Maine," rang through the land. McKinley had no alternative but to declare war. But after the close of the brief struggle misgivings arose as to the truth of the assumption that the Maine was destroyed by Span ish treachery.-These doubts led to the inevitable conclusion that the wAr might have been unnecessary and that it was In a certain sense unjustified a confession numijiaung tor any na tlon to make. ! But it seems safe now to dismiss the fear that this reproach will rest on the" fcountry, The report of the inspection board will soon be submitted and made public, and there Is little doubt that it will confirm the unofficial announcement from Havana, No reporter for an American newspaper would have made "copy" of a casual conversation with the president of the United States without his express authorisation, and the French writer Who has done so for a Paris Journal has doubtless 'violated the ethics of the profession through ignorance. Mr. Roosevelt's confidence was once similarly abused, also by a Frenchman. But though presidents and public men generally talk with frankness on diplomatic and other matters without expectation that their views will be published, their trust never betrayed by American news paper men, and the violation or tne rule in the present instance only sub stantiates the uniform fidelity of re porters to the confidence reposed in them.

A magazine writer says that college men should mix more. But really they are try ing to. One of their most notable efforts recently took place in a New Haven theater. Even the militant suffragettes do not grow enthusiastic over the idea of feminine responsibility that leads disappointed men to bring breach-of- promise suits. ' , Close observers of social conditions assert that It is becoming increasing ly difficult for men over forty years of age to obtain new employment. It May be well for some of the presidential candidates to save this ex planation for use later. Tha Manchu dyasty will be regarded as safe if the premier can negotiate a large loan. This will leave the revolutionists in a position to keep busy paylngoff a mortgage instead of devoting their time to political agitation. " It has been discovered that a candidate for the New York police force Is a burglar. Won't those reformers ever quit Interfering with the busi ness of Tammany?

Before Mrs. Richards could get her auto out of the way a freight car struck the front of the auto with force enough to reduce it to a scrap pile.

VICTIM OF HEART IE Dl AS George Francis Faxon Wilde Suddenly Stricken at North Easton, Massachusetts; Had Distinguished Record. Belated Political Rally. A belated political rally was held In the school house in the Otis precinct Thanksgiving eve. It seems the dem ocratic county committee appropriat ed 825 to every precinct in Eddy county for a big free dinner on elec tion day. But the farmers in Otis precinct were too busy picking cot ton to waste any time on a political spread election day. So the money was put aside for a more convenient time. A big oyster supper was ar ranged for Thanksgiving instead. Nearly everybody there, ready to en-Joy the good things, more than one hundred people being present. Dr. W. G.

Eneffer and others made addresses, while the people did some eating and passed the plates for more to eat. Everybody had a good time and voted it a grand occasion, long to be remembered. , ,, In Lighter Vein Vp in tlie Air. Thomas C.

"Tim," said Denneky, "would you like to go up in one of those air ships?" "Sure, I'd like to, Mr. Tom," he re plied, "if 1 can keep one foot on the ground." Denneky got his gardenor to go up In a captive balloon at one of the ChicafSo amusement resorts. The old man was keen for the ascent until the balloon got up to what he considered a dangerous altitude. Then he turned to the man in 'charge and shouted: "Lave me out!

NO BLOODSHED IN COLORADO COAL CAMPS Denver. Dec. 3. No reports of se rious disorders in the northern Colo rado mining districts reached Gov ernor John F. Shafroth today. The governor last night declined the request of Sheriff Capp of Boulder county that the governor send militia to that region. Reports received from Boulder tonight are that the more than 8.000 strikers there were orderly throughout the latter part of the night and tonight most of the Strikers remained in their homes. Sheriff Capp does not expcmrdluu Sheriff Capp does not expect any more trouble from the strikers, at least not before next Saturday night when the men will be paid the weekly allowance aecordod them by the unions. There had jbeeen little trouble during the past week until the strikers were paid off yesterday, but most of them have spent their allowance and the officers believe this fact will cause them to keep peace. Meantime the sheriff and the mar shals of the various towns are main taining the full number of deputies sworn in yesterday and who patrolled the streets last night and until daybreak. -;- AMERICAN FLYING IN P0RT0 RICO KILLED Decision Rendered in Importan Litigation at Roswell Affect ing Leasing and Purchase o School Land.

A decision was given In district court today in a suit that is Of Interest all over New Mexico for the legal questions involved that rotate to the leasing and pur chase of school lands. Charles C.

C, Rogers tinder lease for many years. The lease un der which these two parties held the land expired without their having taken the proper steps to renew. Gilbert and Paylor were watching Tor this and secured the new lease, the others having failed to do so. In the past several years Newman and Mrs. Rogers have put Improvements on the land, and the court having held that Gilbert and Paylor are entitled to the land the former lease holders have been suing for Judgment for these improvements. The ruling of today holds that the assessed value of the Improvements to be paid Newman s 16,000, and that tho assessed value of rentals and profits due Gilbert since the case has been in court is 12,000 leaving a balance of 14,000 that Gil bert must pay Newman before ob taining possession of the half sec tion. The improvements on the other half have not been so valuable, and Paylor's payment to Mrs. Rogers must be 1200. Big Hog Butchered. The "biggest hog" story has com6 already. M. u.
