THE TROUBLE AT

Refused to Accept It.
Rome, Italy, April 4. King Victor
Emmanuel received Mr. Roosevelt at
the Quirlnal today- The occasion af
forded an opportunity for another ex
hibition of the admiration of the pub
lic for the former, president and. the
popular interest in his every moment.
The hour -of his reception was known
and crowds greeted him all the way
from his hotel to the 'royal palace.
The Icing- received Mr- Roosevelt with
the utmost cordiality and the two, left
alone, chatted for threequarters of an
hour. At the king's request, Mr. Roose
velt gave a brief account of his shoot
ing "trip In Africa, and later expres
sions of friendship in behalf of their
respective countries were exchanged, the
Italian sovereign reiterating his ad
miration for America.
Whe n they came to say goodby, the
king invited Mr. Roosevelt to drive with
him tomorrow morning, as he desired
to see and talk with his guest further,
From the Quirinal Mr. Roosevelt
drove to the Pantheon, with its an
cient memories, a sacred place, as it
contains the tombs of Raphael, king
Victor Emmanuel II., "father of his
country," and king Humbert.
At the entrance to the temple Mr.
Roosevelt was raluted by veterans of

The Tatlcaa Incident.
The determination of Mr. Roosevelt
to forego an audience with pope Plus
X. rather than subscribe to the condi
tions imposed by the Vatican, nas cre
ated a sensation. The unfortunate and
unexpected incident overshadows every
other fature of the distinguished Amor- j

Roosevelt sought an audience with the
pontiff through American ambassador

with the expression of the hope that

R. Branagh Finds It on a
Large Scale in the Vicinity
- of Cananea.
TELLS OF LAND
ACTIVITY IN SONORA
R. Branagh returned yesterday from
a journey to Cananea, Hermosillo and
He reports that at Cananea dry farm
ing is now an established business, with
no knockers to be found. The big fod
der grinding mill, two miles south of Del
nio and eight miles from Cananea. is
grinding sorghum Into a meal which re
sembles the alfalfa meal now being so
much used by poultry keepers, and the
machinery appears to be the same.
The sorghum meal is being used at
present to fatten steers brought in from
the range for slaughter at Cananea.
There are 1000 head of cattle being fat
tened in the corrals at the big steam
mill. Just now o new telephone line is
being constructed to connect the mill
with the Cananea Cattle company's of
fice at Cananea.
Dry Farming On Large Scale.
This is the first scientific application
of the principles of dry farming on, a
large scale to the business of producing
fat cattle In northern Mexico, and it cer
tainly looks like the best use to -which
these princfples can be put at the pres
ent time, when today practically all of
northern Mexico, Arizona and New Mex
ico are suffering from drouth and cat
tle are dying everjwhere, and very lit
tle of them will be fit for sale for many
months to come. If there were a good
number of these dry farms in the cat
tle country it would put that business
on quite another footing, and remove
nearly all the risk.
At Del Rio, nine miles from Cananea.
on the railroad, Jim Dodson, on land
belonging to the Consolidated Copper
company, has broken some new land for
beans, but on account of the dry -winter
and spring, plowing has been abandoned
for the present, the ground being very
To Lease to Fanners.
It is said the copper company has
about half .a million acres of land at
Cananea and the surrounding country,
and that they are going to develop these
lands by -making leases to competent
farmers who may be willing to tackle
dry farming on an average annual rain
fall of 16 Inches and with one of the
best markets in the world.
From Guaymas to El Paso the range
cattle are In very poor condition, and at
many points there will be a loss of 50
per cent, it Is admitted.
Land Boom at Ilcrniosillo.
At Hermosillo tney are having quite a
land boom. In the last j-ear hundreds of
thousands of acres have changed hands.
Mr. Wooster. of the big San Francisco
real estate firm of that name, some time
ago bought the Carrisal ranch of 108,
000 acres, and which runs from four
miles from the Gulf of California to
wards Hermosillo for over twenty miles.
Jay Dwigglns is the man in charge
of the work of developing the ranch
and making the sales. Mr. Herman and
his wife are living out in the forest of
mesquite and ironwood. Mr. Herman be
ing the engineer. They have a road sur
veyed to within a few miles of the gulf,
and Mr. Dwiggins runs his automobiles
within twele miles of the sea. G. I
Pickett, a Californian, has put down
two wells. Water was found 12 miles
from the gulf toward Hermosillo at 40
feet and 10 or 12 miles farther inland
at 70 feet. The next well, that of the
Costa Rica ranch, ana S or 10 miles
further inland, pumps water 125 feet
for the use of their cattle. Still further
inland, at the ranch of Governor Izabal,
the water is 260 feet, and Is raised by
steam power. It looks like the water is
nearly the same depth, all over this delta
country, the depth .being the sea level,
so that as Hermosillo Is approached,
coming east from the sea. the depth to
water increases, and possibly the water
sinks almost to sea level not far from
Hermosillo. On the south bank of the
river the water is found at a much less
depth, although there appears to be no
reason for that unless there are some
hills which approach nearer to the riv
er on that side.
