Americans Are Present.
When Jose Maria Sanchez, gov
ernor of Chihuahua, pulled the rope to
unveil the statue of Benito Juarez,
which tops one of the most beautiful
monuments of North America, only a
portion of the great patriot's bronze
figure was exposed and the governor's
tugging at the rope was of no avail.
Thousands of upturned faces saw the
huge arm of brass and tin shoot Into
the air heavenward as the red, white
and green veil slipped from the figure,
bat only half of the figure was ex
posed, and it seemed that the metal
man held fast the colors of his coun
try by some strange animation of min
eral, not man.
And as the crowds saw, one thought
flashed through hundreds of minds,
Mexican minds, fraught with the stim
ulus of ptriotism. "Benito Juarez, pa
triot and reformer, so loved the tri- j
colored flag of green, red and white,
that even his bronze reproduction re
fuses to give it up." And then when at
lsat the veil fell after many minutes
of pulling at th- rope, the statue seed
ed to say to those present day Mex
icans "well, take it, if you must, but
guard it well."
Fitting: Week's Finale.
Ceremonie& held Sunday morning in
Ciudad Juarez at the unveiling of the
handsome statue, and the inauguration
of many centenary improvements of the
border city, were fitting finale of the
week of festival. With Jose Maria San
chez, governor of Chihuahua, as chief
officiant, and with him many promin
ent officials of the stake capital, the
day was noteworthj-, for the citj-, only
rivaled by the Taft-Diaz meeting.

was met at the Juarez station by lo- '

Guthrie, Okia., Sept. 19. The stor of a criminal assault on a young white
girl and the atrocious murder of her father and uncle by a negro, who was said
to have escaped, was found to be vagaries of the mind of a girl mentally

resulted in the discovery of the weapon, which showed blood stains and hair.
The crime was committed in Newkirk, Okla., Friday morning. The com

no traces of the negro were found. The girl's confession tais morning followed

Mexican Driver the Cause.
Resulting from the failure of a Mexi
can to give an equal share of the road,
the fatality brought to tragic end a
uuuiiy morning pieasui
ftunaay morning pleasure ride of the
ies who are
neighbors on North Campbell street.
The native, driving a onehorse wagon,
refused to turn out more than a few
inches, according to Hill, and Morrow,
who was driving the auto, was forced
to drive to the extreme right of the
road to avoid a collision. Sinking Into
the heavy sand the car tipped and
j turned turtle, pinning Hill and his small
.lcrf - i - MivX - l -. , -
son under the bonnet and Morrow, who
was driving, underthe body. Mrs.
u.uiiuv, Jirs. i-iiii ana Arthur Hill were
able to jump in time to escape being
caught under the machine.
When he realized that the car was
about to turn over, Hill, who was sit
ting in the front seat with Morrow
with his small son on his lap, made a
desperate effort to throw the boy clear
of the machine. But before he had
time to give the boy's body sufficient
impetus to hurl him out of harm's way,
the car turned over in the roadside
ditch and the two men and the boy
vere pinned under it. Morrow extri
cated himself without assistance, but
Hill and his son could not get free un
til some Mexican bicyclists came along
and assisted Morrow in lifting the
heavy steel frame from off the body
of the prostrate man.

Xew York, Sept. 19.-fCharles R. Ileike,
former secretary treasurer of the Ameri
can Suar Refining com.pa.113, who has
been called "the man higher up" in the
sugar underweierhinp' fraud cases, was
sentenced today 03 judge Alartin of the
United States circuit court to serve eight
months in the penitentiarj on Black
well's island and to pay a fine of $5000
on conviction of conspirin to defraud
the government 03' the underweighing
A sta3 of execution was granted pend
ing an appeal.
Hcike's sentence is the culminating
point in the federal government's prose
cution of the American Sugar Refining
company officials and emploves growing
out of sugar underweighing frauds on
the Williamsburg docks of the trust.
Four weighers for the company and
their dock boss, Oliver Snitzer, were
convicted at the first trial, and the
weighers are still serving their sentence.
Spitzer was pardoned and turned
state's evidence, his tesfcimoii3- pla3ing
an important part in the conviction of
Ileike and Ernest Gerbracht, a refinery
superintendent, and four minor emplo3es.
The sugar compair- meanwhile has
paid the government $2,000,000 out of
which it wa shown that the govern
ment was deluded.

i Meeting Tuesday Night at
Chamber of Commerce to
Arrange for More Dele
gates. j COLORADO PREPARING
TO FORCE ATTACK
Asserts Reclamation Service
Has No Right to Claim
Any of the Waters Rising
in or Flo-wing Through
MEETING TUESDAY NIGHT
A mass meeting is called at
the chamber of commerce Tues
day night at 8 o'clock, with a"
view to informing our people
upon the very serious movement
in Colorado intended to inter
fere with the Rio Grande recla
mation project, and in order to
arrange for 30 or 40 more act
ive and public-spirited citizens
to go to Pueblo for the Nation
al Irrigation congress where the
fight will break loose. A large
attendance Is uryl.
Colorado is preparing to mnLc a tre
mendous fight at Pueblo before the
National Irrigation congress, the pri-
- mary object Deing to get the storage
capacity of the Engle Sam cut down
from 2.200.000 acre feet to only 460,000
acre feet, or only one-fifth the storage
deemed imperatively necessary by the
engineers .of trie reclamation service.
Colorado's Strong Delegation.
Tho Colorado delegation includes
senators and ex-senators, leading law
yers and prominent representatives of
the state of Colorado, the cities, the
chambers of commerce, real estate ex
changes the societies of civil en
gineers and the irrigation corporations
and railroads interested in defeating
the project for reclaiming the lands in
litis lower valey.
For a long time Colorado fought tho
whole project, but since the Washing
ion, government passed emphatic ap
oproval.upon the project and since tho
treaty with Mexico became a law, the
opponents have confined themselves
mainly to efforts to discredit the recla
mation service engineers,' to force the
removal of all restrictions upon the
upper stream, to compel a cutting down
of the storage capacity of the big res
ervoir and to reduce the acreage to be
reclaimed in this part of the valley.
Colorado's Prfcaie Contention.
"The waters of the Rio Grand" in
Colorado belong primarily to Colora
do," is the declaration 1a iesolu.iois
passed last Friday night by the Colora
do delegation in caucus at Denver.
This in the face of the fact that the
United States government many years
ago appropriated all the unappropriat
ed waters of the river for the benefit
of the Engle project, and in face of tho
fact that prior rights by appropriation
and use exist in hundreds of cases
along this part of the stream, para
mount to any claims late applicants In
Colorado may have.
Other points brought out in the reso
lutions of- the Colorado delegation,
which will fight along the lines of this
radical program at Pueblo next week,
are as follows:
"The government has no authority
to take away hte waters of the Rio
Grande river in Colorado and give
them to New Mexico and Texas, depriv
ing the residents of the San Luis val
ley of water that is absolutely neces
sary for the reclamation of this dis
trict. "By permitting the residents of the
San Luis valey to use water from the
Rio Grande for irrigation purposes, the
supply needed to irrigate the 160,000
acres in New Mexico and Texas would
not be materially reduced, as much of
it would be recovered through seepage.
"The 2,000.000 acre feet of water to
be appropriated by the Engle project
