COLORADO FIGHT MAY
BOB UP ONCE MORE
Texans Fear Irrigation Con
gress Fight on Dam
Will Be Made.
Before many weeks El Paso's atten
tion will be called to Ue national Irri
gation congress, which will o helu
this year from September 30 to October
3 at Salt Lake City. Utah. Of more
than usual interest to west Texas will
be the meeting- of irrlgationists, since
progress on the Elephant Botte dam,
calculated to rejuvenate the El Paso
valley, will without doubt be one of
the most important subjects to come
before the convention.
It has been an open secret for some
time that Colorado will attempt some
move which would be unwelcome to
New Mexico, Arizona and west Texas
in this matter. It is natural that the
more northern state opposes the erec
tion of the huge government dam since
it will reclaim the waters for the Rio
Grande which were taken years ago by
Colorado ditches. So it is deemed im
portant by those interested in the
southwest that this section be stroncly
represented at the congress fo fight for

of the congress, has been received

chamber of commerce. Mr. Hooker

Texas, which, he says, has always sent

support appears strong for the attend
ance at Salt Lake.

"It is a difficult matter to tell just
when the report will be ready, but I can

Mr. Walter Scott, Chairman Bar Meet
Dear Sir On a card used by judge
Harper in electioneering, he made the
following statement: "Mi opponent
asked the endorsement of the El Paso
bar, which request was rejected by a
vote of 50 to 30. " This statement is so
entirely incorrect and does me, as his
opponent, such injustice that I beg
leave to request you to make a state
mem of the call for the bar meeting
and its action. Respectfully,
P. G. Morris.
El Paso, Tex., July 1, 1912.
Judge F. G. Morris, City:
Dear Sir In answer to your inquiry
vl mis aaie j. nave to state that the
meeting of the bar was called by sev
eral members thereof, as expressed in
the call, to decide whether the bar
would indorse one of the candidates for
chief justice of the court of civil ap
peals, and if so, which one it would
indorse. The bar meeting decided by
a vote of 48 to 28, as shown by the
record, that it would not rcake
an indorsement as an association. No
motion to indorse any particular can
didate was made or voted on. A mi
tion to decline to take action on the
matter was the only motion voted on. It
was the sense of the meeting that eiy?..
Individual member of the bar shoulsf be
left free to support either of the,'Can

The Ring Meeting Saturday
Mlffht DispOSeS Of All
' o JT
Anti Charges Translated
by One Domingo Montoya.
Baltimore is not the only city that
can pull a political meetins of the first
water. Never behind in anything. El
Paso can and did make political history
Saturday nisht the same time that
Champ Clark was speeding from Wash
ingon with orders to put him off at Bal
timore. Down behind Broadway and in tho im
mediate rear of the Stanton bar, part of
the local Democracy, the socallcd ''so
called ring,'' as they frequently referred
to themselves, held a meeting. It was
tome meeting in spite of the environ
ment which was furnished chiefly by the
umbrella trees of an abandoned beer
garden and the odors from the unsani
tary alley which runs in the rear of
"The Young Democrats."
It was "the young Democrats'" meet
ing as per announcement, although theru
were a number of the older Demmies
there alongside of the beer barrel and
barbecue. A rough board beer iable was
improvised into a speaker's platform,
where the Meiean oters were told of
the wonders of ring rule and the awful
things the antis would do if they were
elected. The old days in political his
tory herea-bouts never put over any bet
ter sample of the ring rule work than
the "young Democrats" Saturday night.
Several barrels of beer, a long table
loaded with barbecued meat and just
half enough dispensers furnished the
stage setting for the talkfest. The beer
and barbecue were in the immediate
rear of an open plumbing toilet, but
this did not hinder the proceedings any
more than the odor from the Broadway
The Preliminary Bout.
A long haired Mexican started the
fireworks by chattering in Spanish
about what the citv has done for the
Mexicans. This was t"he preliminary
bout, the curtain raiser for the big set
piece which was James Murphy, candi
date for justice of the peace. Murphy
todfc himself as seriously as the crowd
of Mexicans and i:ng leaders did the
beer and sandwiches.
Domingo Montoya, who uas been sit
ing on the edge of the spcukerfs table
in an attitude of Washington crossing
the Delaware or Napoleon reviewing the
old guard, translated for Murphy and
was forced much against his will, of
course, to gic utterance to fulsome
praise of one Domingo Montoya, who is
a candidate for constable:
The Principal Speech.
''Friends," shouted Murphy.
"Amigos." translated Domingo in
"Domingo Montoya is all right."
"Domingo Montoya es buevo." Mon
And the game of gab was on in two
languages and an equal number of
Murphy praised Montoa for cvery
th:ng but fixing the county court house
clock. Incidentally, he boosted his own
candidacy bv knocking Charles Owen,
his opponent, who Montoya referred to
as "Char-liee Owens" in his translations.
Murphy predicted that the second w;ard
would go dry if Owen was elected jus
tice of the peac, which was quite a
tribute to Owens' power for good. The
old Prohib. chant was dragged out and
dusted off for the .benefit of the Mex
icans who had come to cat and drink
and had stopped to listen.
Graft Charges Mashed Flat.
Murphy put an everlasting fire
cracker on the tail of the grafter charges
by saying that if the ring had wished
to graft, the "friends" of those same
Mexicans would have been placed in
jail instead of being turned loose. Just
how the grafting process could have been
carried on bv such a method. Murphy
failed to elucidate probably didn't
think his audience would understand
