zation this . morning selected Ralph
Twitchell of Das Vegas for the next
president of congress.
Dos Angeles After It.
Although the committee on permanent
organization selected Chicago, the con
vention has not done so and Dos An
geles may get the next meeting. El
Paso and New Mexico have decided that
it will be best to keep the convention
west and threw their votes to Dos An
geles. All the Pacific coast states are
voting that way and, though entering
the contest late, it appears a winner.
So it will be a New Mexican at the
head of the congress and a California
citthat will entertain it.- It will be
further away from Colorado, too, which
will be some satisfaction to the New
Mexicans and Texans, who will prob
ably never do anything for Colorado
again. Pueblo last year promised the
New Mexicans and El Pasoans they
would not make a fight on tne Elephant
Butte project if they would support
Pueblo for the next aneeting place and
they voted for Pueblo.
The program has been so fixed up
that Colorado's "states rights" side of
the case has been sandwiched into
everything and yet Colorado has been
whipped) hard that she is crying like
a baby. Colorado is a hard loser ana
for that reason the Texas-New Mexico
delegation is making the pill jjust as
4 better as possible. They are going to
make Miss Colorado squirm just for tne
moral effect. Colorado lost every point
in the resolutions committee. Felix
Martinez, Richard nurges and H. B.
Holt, the New Mexico and Texas dele
gates, were personally attacked in the
resolution of the sub-committee Dy
ICAUlULlUll KJ1. U1C rm.v-A -.- wj
Colorado's delegate and were accused of
using: money and everything else that
"Crooked Colorado" uses in politics to
influence the convention, but they re-
plied with logic and conviction and car
ried their point.
Visitors Held Up.
.The El Pasoans were fortunate in
bringing their cars in which to sleep
and eat that is, if they would have
stopped at the Congress hotel had the
train been left at home. This hotel is
the only one of any pretensions in the
city and the management has taken
advantage of the congress to reap a
harvest. All the menu cards bear
prices almost double those charged in
the best restaurants and $5 a day is
the cheapest price asked for any room
in the house. A man and his wife can
have a room without a bath for $5 or
j the man can have it alone for the
same price. Complaints meet witn tnis
statement: "If you don't want it, there
are plenty of others who do." The
chief clerk was told that people would
boycott him in future for the prices
he was charging and he replied: "Oh,
no, they won't. They have to stop hero
if they get decent hotel accommoda
tions." This appears to be in line with
the Colorado policy all for Colorado,
to hades with the rest of the world.
But it can be said to the credit of the
business men of the town and most of
the restaurants that they have not in
creased their prices and are satisfied
to charge the visitors what they
charge their ""home people. Many room
ing house keepers charge 3 to $5 a
day for rooms, however.
Token For Brown.
The El Paso-Mesilla valley delega
tion has taken up a collection for pur
chasing a token for "W. R. Brown, dis
trict freight and passenger agent of
the Santa Fe at El Paso, who has had
charge of their train and has extended
them every courtesy. "W. H. Austin
was appointed to head the finance
committee to raise the money.

Gaspar Giron, of San Elizario,

j will ship it back home.
Ted Rouault jr., of Das Cruces, who
is here with his wife, had an auto
mobile sent down from Denver and has
been seeing the sights and taking his
friends for rides in a joy car.
The little El Paso badges, as usual,
went like the proverbial griddle cakes
and the supply was soon exhausted,
but nobody hid them away. Every

Mexico A. & M. college, is one of tho J

made several trips through Europe
and it is said that he always carried
that violin along.
George A. Fleming, of Das Vegas,
secretary of the commercial club ot J
that city, is going from here to the '
Dry Farming congress at Spokane. He
has attended this congress the pasl
three years and is an active worker.
Will Go to Spokane.
The Colorado Springs delegation at
the Irrigation congress is going from
here to Spokane also, in an effort to
capture the lext session of that con
gress. G. A. Martin, of El Taso, will
be a guest of this delegation en routo
to Spokane, in the special car that
they will occupy.
Charlie Doomis, since he can't make
anything out of the financial misfor
tunes of others at the Irrigation con
gress by refereeing bankruptcy cases,
is interesting himself ini a Boy Scout
movement for Colorado. He thinks
maybe the scouts could find a man in
Colorado who is conscious of the rights
of others outside his state.
Horace B. Stevens is being intro
duced as the only Republican in Texas
who hasn't been a postmaster.
Postmaster Smith "At Eome."
J. A. Smith, postmaster of El Paso,
used to publish a paper at Central City,
Colo., and is right at home up here
among the people of this section. Pe
culiarly enough, it was the unanimous
vote of the El Paso delegation that
"Pa" Smith should be assigned to work

not adopted its aviationary prices
merely to keep in style.
Gen. B. J. Viljoen, of the Mesilla val
ley, said he felt like a carrot when ho
got up to talk, but he wasn't "stewed"
Pneblo a Good Town.
Pueblo has street cars like the Har
ry .Potter kind at El Paso with open
ends for plenty of air but they are
much bigger cars and the whites and
negroes ride together. Sometimes, a
negro man is sitting down and a white
woman is standing, but Pueblo seems
to think nothing of it. The El Paso
crowd doesn't like this much.
The town is beautifully decorated
with electric lights and fancy arches
the Taft-Dia sort that shake when
kicked but preey, just the same, and
looking, from a distance, like they
might be made from El Paso cement.
Felix Martinez has hardly -slept since
the delegation arrived. His counsel
has 'been sought everywhere by the
tyg- men of the congress, and the pa
pers call him "senator" Martinez.
Joe Pollard is winning fame as "the
partner of the mayor of El Paso." Joe
is working a regular Kelly smile on
the delegates, and is not stingy with
them towards chorus girls when a mu
sical comedy hits town.
Garnett King paid $2 for a manicure
as soon as he reached town and then
"went on to Denver.
Dick Warren, of the Southwestern
road, has been taken for a poet on

Between R. F. Burges and judge J.
M. Goggin, the El Pasoans have enough

Charlie Swenson, who owns the Toy

Texas delegation and talking up the
Teas conservation congress movement
for Will Sargent, 'of Fort Worth, who
is the secretary of the congress and
is doing, some talking himself. Sar
gent is also not overlooking a chance
to tell about the wonders of travel on
the T. & P. and he declares a base
calumny the statement that a man left
Fort Worth afoot and beat a T. & P.
"flyer" to El Paso.
The committee on permanent organ

in deciding to recommend to the con
gress for president R. E. Twitchell, of
New Mexico; and for secretary, Arthur
Hooker, incumbent. Tonight the con

be retained; and this can be done only
when the capacity of the soil to take

immediately after the crop has been
taken off, and before the rainy season
of the year sets in it should if possible
be plowed in rough furrows. In this

rain that falls. A considerable portion
of the rain will flow off a flat surface

In spring is not advantageous. If, in

cultivate his fields over and over again.
"A definite, well planned treatment
of this question in view of the interests

clear exposition of water rights will be
the next important task of the govern

of all organic life, and the forests and

Well, you never saw a child eat with
such a relish, and It did me good to see

though we could almost see him grow.
He would eat Grape-Nuts for break
