First Bain in Ten Months
W. C. T. U. Organizes.
More Oil Found.
Carlsbad, N. M., March 14. Eddy
county has had its first rainfall in 10
months. Although in the form of local
showers they were quite general in thelr
scope and extended from the mountains,
on the -west, to the plains country, on
the east. Considerable rain fell in some
localities and will be of inestimable value
to everj' branch of industry in the coun
ty. It will be especially welcomed by
the stock men who were already becom
anxious about the spring grass. The
prospect is good for a general rain.
Secretary A. M. Hove, of the Pecos
Water Users' association. Has returned
from Roswell, where he paid 8000 to the
receiver of the land office. This amount
represented about S percent of the con
struction and maintenance charges of
the water users under the project. The
paj-anents are coming In steadily and it
is now evident that only a very small
percent of the water users will become
delinquent In their payments which are
due March 31.
Mrs. S. C. gutter, of Albuquerque,
territorial organizer of the TV. C. T. U.,
has perfected a temporary organization
of that society in Carlsbad. Mrs. Lola
Moore, the national lecturer of the so
ciety, Is expected -to arrive in Carlsbad
soon at which time the organization will
be made permanent. The officers elected
nrcr?: President, Mrs Asbury Moore;
secretary, Mrs. TT. P. Mudgett; treas
urer; Mrs. C. H. Dishmam. Vice presi
dents will be appointed at the time the
organization is made permanent, with
one representative from each denomina
tional church organization -In the city.
The interest in the undeveloped oil
fields northwest of Carlsbad was given
an impetus, by finding a strong flow of
oil in a well which was being drilled
for artesian water on Uie farm of F. C.
Knowles in nvhat Is known as Cotton
wood Draw. The oil flowed into the well
In large quantities and as a result about
150 oil claims were immediately filed
This find is only a repetition of what
has occurred many times before save
for the fact that the dimensions of the
field are being continually extended In
MINING OPERATIONS IN
SIAM. A BIG BUSINESS
DcvelopiHcnt of Railroads Increases tke
Chances of tho Miners to Take
Oat Tkeir Ores.
Vice consul general Carl C. Hansen,
of Bangkok, reports as follows con
cerning the Imports of metal manufac
tures into Slam and the metal indus
tries and mineral resources of the king
dom: The total imports of metai manufac
tures, excluding machinery, hardware
and cutlery, into Siam for the year end
ed March 31, 1909, amounted to $1,724,
115, which was a fair annual average
of the imports .for the last five years.
Metals, excluding treasure, rank third
in importance, of all the Imports enter
ing the port of Bangkok.
Metal manufacture in Siam is prac
tically nonexistent, being confined to
Chinese blacksmiths and a few natives
of the north of Slam, who hammer out
a few primitive plows and knives from
imported iron bars.
Tin holds the chief place in Slam's
metal resources, and is found through
out the Siamese portion of the Malay
peninsula. The island of Junk Ceylon
(Tongknh) furnishes nearly onehalf of
the tin of the country. The output of
tin ore from the island for 190S was
3T13 tons, valued at about 1,670,385;
and that of melted block tin, 2392 tons,
valued at $1,580,105. It is said this
province of Siam is an immensely rich
mining country, only waiting to be de
veloped. Siain's average annual pro
duction of tin is estimated at about
5175 tons, valued at $4,110,000. English
mining companies and the Chinese are
the chief .workers for tin. Gold is said
to stand second to tin in the mineral
resources of the country, but so far its
working has not proved profitable.
Copper and lead mining has also proved
The difficulties in mining in Siam
have been the remoteness of the mines
and the enormous cost of transporta
tion, b'ut these conditions are being
overcome by the extension of railways
north and south.

the federal government has been recog

dipped liere in Texas were either not
allowed to pass Inspection or hal to ba

not only additional expense but delay.
It will therefore be welcome news to
all west Texas cattlemen to learn that
the government has adopted the arsen

saves great inconvenience and ex
