The volunteer census is about ready
to census. A list of the volunteers is
being prepared today by the city engi
neer's department ith the block
assignments described in detail. More
enumerators who have not yet volun

to blocks in which to count the noses of

The census, like death and taxes, is
no respector of persons or personages

Plans for the diversion of the Rio

prevent it 'cutting away during high

It is also understood that action will
be taken by the meeting protesting
against the attitude of some of the Al
buquerque citizens in protesting against
the Elephant Bufcte dam project and the
irrigation appropriation now before con
gress. Albuquerque Hedges.
The Albuquerque people have hedged
somewhat on their first stand against
the dam. Recently they adopted a reso
lution declaring that they are in favor
of .the construction of the Elephant
Butte dam, but against the appropria
tion of all water above the dam site for
the purpose of filling the Elephant Butte
lake. In part, their resolutions recite:
"First, That it is not our aim in any
manner to hinder or delay the construc
tion of said Elephant Butte dam or anv
tther government reclamation projectT
That we earnestly recommend the con
struction and completion of said Ele
phant Butte dam.
''Second, That in our opinion chere is
no need for the government to reserve
all the water for said Elephant Butte
project, as there will be plenty of water
stored up during the .winter months
above said dam to supply all the land
lying 'below it for vl year or two at a
tame without storing more.
"Third. That if the reclamation ser
vice of the United States deems it nec
essary to Teserve all the waters of the
Rio Grande (for said "Elephant Butte
dam, then we urge the establishment by
the government of power plants at suit
able locations north of said Elephant
Butte project by Trailding dams and
using the waters" of the Rio Grande to
furnrjh power to the farmers in the
valley north of said dam. thereby recom

A sanitary dairy to provide fresh, pure
milk for the babies, is the first unit to
be secured in the campaign for a baby
sanatorium at Cloudcroft. J. C. Jones,
proprietor of the Southwestern hotel at

the proper sanitation of the dairy has
been secured by Sir. Jones and he will
ihave work begin as. soon as possible on
the new dairy. This will not only pro

but will also suppl- the baby's sanator
ium which is to be built by El Pasoans
for the proper care of the little ones
who are taken to the mountains to es
cape the hot season.
The activity in the affairs cf Cloud
croft has inspired a number of El Paso
ans to become recruits to the cause of
a -bigger and better summer resort for
El Paso and the southwest in the Sac
ramento mountains. A number of per
sons are planning cottages at the resort
this summer and one real estate man is
arranging to build a number of rental
cottages to be ready for the opening
of the season.
E. C. Pew is one of the El Pasoans
who is arranging to build at Cloudcroft
this spring and he will send his family
there to spend the summer and will
also spend his vacation with them. Da

CANNON SCORES THE
Speaker of the House Assails
His Enemies With Fur
ious Language. -
Washington, D. C. March 21. With
eyes glowing defiance and voice thun
dering at his enemies with all the day's
pent up bitterness, speaker Cannon
made a vitriolic attack on the "hybrid
house majority" at the annual dinner
of the Illinois Republican association
His face was worn from the force of
the tcrriiic assault made upon him nr.d
his oico h.ckcl its old ja ir ness and
resonance. He was "Uncle Joe" In
A startling statement made by the
powers-shorn but defiant speaker was
that the Republicans no longer have a
majority in the senate.
"My God," he cried, with great
solemnity, "suppose this 150 pounds of
common clay should drop dead tonight,
-what would the newspapers and maga
zines which make a profession of lying
and slandering do then? My daughters,
granddaughters, my sonmlaw would ba
&orry. jsut tiie balance of the world
would not have time to be sorry. There
never was a truer word said than, Tet
the dead bury its dead,' If that were not I
true, then the world would be one vast
house of mourning.
"I know people who think they
monopolize the wires from the earth up
to the great white throne. They don't
givo tho majority of us a chance. They
have cure-alls, they think God and
ono constitute a majority, forgetting
that God alone is a majority and can do
without their help.

ity. Once In a while we find people
who have a monopoly of all knowledge
and therefore would be Indicted and
prosecuted under the Sherman anti
trust law. All who disagree with them

Some Are Cranks.
"It's uncomfortable sometimes to live
in a government by the people. There
will always be some who are feeble
minded, abnormal, insane, or to use a
shorter and more common word are
cranks. But we've got to have them.
"There was a new majority made to
day, ic consisted of the Democrats and a
15 percent slough from the Republican
party. They destroyed the committee
on rules. Then what did they do? A
resolution was presented declaring the
office of speaker vacant. Then what
did these men who have been denounc
ing my personality, these Simon Pure
followers of senator La Follette do?
Only eight of them had the
courage of their convictions. The re
sult was that while I was elected
speaker by a majority of 26 last March,
they refused to turn me out by a ma
jority of 36. '
"That -was the way this Republican
slough started out m its new alliance.
And the Sunday papers will be out in
the morning with stories about the end
of Cannonism and czarism and perhaps
a few of them will say what I said
about the house being simply a govern
