P. E. Kern, Former El Paso
Jeweler, Is. the 'Man Who
Made "Swastika" Design
Pete Kern, one of the originators 'of
the Elephant Butte dam project and the
man who made the swastika design
popular throughout the country as a
piece of good luck jewelry, is here from
Skagway, Alaska, which he- calls home
and is visiting with his old friends
that he made while he was In business
here from 1SS2 until 1896.
Pete, or P. E., as he writes it in
Skagway when he signs the warrants
for thfl electric llirht company, in
which he owns a large interest, was
formerly In the jewelry business on
South El Paso street in one of the
rooms which now makes up tha large
store room of the Vogue department
store. It was there that he made -the
first swastika stickpin which after
wards became so famous as a good luck
omen. He did not originate the design,
the Egyptians -saved him the trouble,
according to the history of the pin. but
he popularized it by making it into
popular designs In jewelry and selling
It in all parts of the country
It was while on a fishing trip above
the dam with a mulligan stew attach
ment that the idea of the Elephant
Butte dam occurred to Kern and his
friends who composed the fishing party.
Taking a Sunday off, Kern, E. V. Ber
rien, John Campbell, R. M. Loomis, and
Edward Roberts went fishing above the
old diversion dam. Campbell was an
engineer and while they were fishing
they violated the rules of fishing etl
quet by talking. Their talk led to Ir
rigation and the old topic as to the
value of dammingthe Rio Grande for Ir
rigating purposes. The Elephant Butte,
near Engle, N. M., was decided upon as
being the best place and before they
reeled up their lines and started back

to incorporate and organize a company '
for the purpose of exploiting such a '
project. The original cost of organiza
tion was $7.50, which was spent for ',
filing the necessary papers at Las
Cruqes, according to Mr. Kern's story.
" "A description of the proposed pro
ject was printed before a survey was
made and 200 of these descriptions sent
to England," he said today. "A num

Dr. Nathan E. Boyd to investigate. A

which cost abont 20,000, and, armed
with the maps that were drawn from
the data obtained by these surveys,
Boyd returned to England to create in

the work. About one year's work had
been done and $100,000 spent in cement

at Washington and an injunction was
Issued preventing further work being

THE LARGE CITIES
Commission Says Conges
tion Is Less Prevalent
Washington, D. C, Jan. 31. The
crowding of immigrants in the congested
districts of large cities is much less
prevalent than Is popularly supposed,
and common report of bad living condi
tions among such Immigrants is much
overdrawn, according to an exhaustive
report on Immigrants in cities transmit
ted to congress today by the immigra
tion commission. The report, which was
prepared under the direction, of E. A.
Goldenweiser and makes a volume of 600
pages, is based on a study of over 10,-
1 000 households in some of the -most con
gested districts of New York, Chicago,
Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland, Buf
falo and Milwaukee.
Conditions in Cities.
It shows that the population of con
gested districts is composed mostly of
recent immigrants, one-third of the
famlles canvassed having been in the
United States less than five years and
two-thirds less than 10 years. In the
cities covered it was found that there
was an average of 134 persons per
100 rooms occupied, including kitchens,
and an average of 232 persons per 100
sleeping rooms. The number of persons
per 100 room's occupied in the different
Boston, 144; Philadelphia, 141; New
York and Cleveland, 139; Buffalo, 133;
Chicago, 126, and Milwaukee, 115.
Out of each 10 families visited one
family owned its own home. This home
ownership averaged one in five in six
in Chicago, Cleveland and Buffalo, one
in 15 in Philadelphia, one in 22 in Bos
ton and one in 200 In New York.
i found in five-sixths of the houses, al
though the streets were usually dirty,
due in many cases to municipal indif
ference to out of the way districts. San
itary conditions were found to depend
largely on the cities rather than on the
occupants of the homes. Certain races,
the inquiry showed .attached more im
portance to cleanliness than did oth
ers. The growth of foreign colonies in
large cities is attributed to the fact that
immigrants generally join their friends
or relatives and remain near them for a
time, at least, but a more general dis
tribution of the older Immigrants has,
been brought about by economic pro
gress and a desire for better surround
ings. TO CURE A COLD IN" ONE DAY

can condition soon will reach a climax.
That the unions of conductors and en
ginemen mean business there is little
doubt. There are 500 engineers and 400
conductors affected and those men will
leave service rather than gradually be
thrust out by Mexican employes, it is
General manager Clarke of the Na
tional Railways of Mexico has Issued
the following edict:
"The policy of the railroad company
is to promote from the ranks when
ever possible and to encourage em
ployes to work and hope for promotion.
It has been distinctly stated that no
employe would be discriminated against
or removed except for such faults as
justified said removal, as is the general
practice on all railroads enforcing dis
cipline and punishing misdeeds. The
men in our employ have no reason to
fear that they will not be fairly dealt
with in all cases; nor that, in any
cases calling for their dismissal, they
will not be given a fair and Impartial
trial. This communication will
impress you with the fact that your
requests cannot be granted, and that
the reason and justice of the conclusions
arrived at will clear your minds as to
why your requests are declined."
What Conductors "Want.
Here is what "W. P. Curtis, vice presi
dent of the Order of Railway Conduct
ors, has to say:
"The original requests of the em
ployes were six, the purpose being to
insure employment and promotion of
competent men to positions of engineers
and conductors. Upon our earnest
recommendation three of the requests
were withdrawn and the remaining
three were materially modified. This
was done after the board of directors
had announced its policy to be abso
lutely impartial with the exception that
Mexican citizens would be given
preference In employment, qualifica
tions being equal. Their sole intent in
the matter is to guard against danger
to life and limb from the too rapid pro
motion of the inexperienced, and in
competent. To insure this protection
we ask the board to adopt the follow
ing requests and make them in the
nature of instructions to subordinate
officials. This they refused to do and
upon this the entire disagreement has
" 'That there shall be on each, di
vision a board composed of our com
petent railroad men for the examina
tion of applicants for employment or
promotion, two men to be selected from
a list selected by the employer.
"'That all englnecrsbe required to
have had two years experience as vf ire
men on road service and all conductors
two years experience as brakemen.
" 'All orders and instructions to Eng
lish speaking employes to be written in
the English language. "

THE LAND OF
(Continued from Page Six.)
irrigating works are all situated in the
United States, though about 25,000
acres of Mexican land will be bene
fited. El Paso, Texas, is in the very heart of
the irrigated country, and Is already
one of the principal cities of the south
west. No finer farming region will be
found in all the world than thai which
will be reclaimed by the Rio Grande.
At least 1SO,000 acres of land will be
Irrigated with three feet of water to
the acre per year.
The El Paso chamber of commerce
declares that the sediment of the RIo
Grande is richer in potash and nitro
gen than the soil carried down by the

Cantaloupes grow at the rate of 1S,
000 to the acre, she receipts running
from ?5S5 to $7S0 per acre Onions
yield from 15 to 20 tons per sere, and
sell at from 30 to $40 per ton. As
paragus has been known to yield as
high as 12,000 pounds to the acre, and
to sell for 12 cents a pound, or ?1500
per acre. Of course, these crops all
require much attention and these fig
ures show their gross value. But when
they are compared with the 30 bushels
of wheat the farmers elsewhere get,
with a gross value of less than $30 to
the acre, it shows the possibilities of
Alfalfa, Favorite Crop.
Alfalfa is a favorite crop with those
who do not care to keep a large force
of hands. Once it gets a good start
under irrigation it requires but little
care or expense, and can be looked aft
er by a man who Is tied up with other
affairs. For Instance, the postmaster of
El Paso, In addition to his official
duties, manages a large dairy and cuts
some 3000 tons of alfalfa from his
ranch below the city every year. It
yields from five to 10 tons to the acre,
is cut some five times a year, and sells
at from $10 to $15 a ton.
The mining industry in New Mexico
