PRESIDENT RAYS TIME
HAS QQME TOR STATEHOOD
Marked enthusiasm greeted the
reading of two letters from President
Roosevelt, by Secretary Fowler, tine
of these letters was written to the
National Irrigation congress ami the
other to the ..oard of control of New
Mexico, in j espouse to the invitation
engraved on gold plate, which flov
eraor Curry recently delivered to the
president, it was tin. postcript of this
letter, brief and pointed in the well
known Roosevelt .style, which doubled
the en th OSlana again nnd again ano
when Secretary Fowler, road "P. s. l
earnestly hope that this wlnfc
shall have a chance to sign bills
ferring statehood upon both New
Mexico and Arizona" a shout Went up
from every section of the Convention
our arid and semi-arid lands nnd In
the making of home-, l'raise Is due
to the nu n who have been pioneers In'
this great work.
All roads to success in the creation
of homes upon the arid lands should
be made easy, l.'ltimately every pos- '
tibie drop of water should be eon
served and every acre of laud that
can be Irrigated should be put under
the most productive system of culti
vation. Tin-re Is no line of effort mofi
helpful t tin- public welfare than the
conservation of the was;e waters,
bringing them out upon the waste
lands and creating small prosperous
farms owned and tilled by self-re-:
specting Independent citizens.
I am glad to call your attention to '
the fact that the reclamation service,
under the direction Of Secretary Car- '
Held and Mr. Newell, has effectively
continued its work during the past
year and is now taking v.. it' r to 350.
r 1 1 000 acres of land. The larger works
con- Hearing completion will soon bring
water to an additional area of one I
million acres, Not only has much land
been irrigated, but the works built or
finished are or the most pi rmanenl
public works of the republic of
France, was introduced and addressed
the assemblage In French, , his re

President Goudy introduced ex-
Governor I.. Rradford Prince of New

"Yesterday and Today" Is printed in

j spoke for nearly an hour and Was
l listened lo with close attention re
I ooivlng hearty applause as he con.

as the birthplace of irrigation nnd
to the fact that tin lourtn emigres?
was held here thirteen years igo
evoked much enlhnsiasm.
On the roll call of states two set
of resolutions were presented and
read and referred to the resolutions

Prinee of New Mexico and was to the
effect that the provisions of the Catey
