Under the reclamation law $19,-

There is now- pending before the Fed

several million dollars or this money.
But I have not recited all of the
Federal activities in my State, which
inevitably increase the business be

Republic of Mexico bounds Arizona
on the south and a poorly guarded
International line encourages smu;
gllug and violation of the Immigra

persons charged with shipping arms

of the Federal court.
It goei without saying that the Fed

its full share of the general increase
in the number of cases arising under
the food and drugs act, the anti-narcotic
law. the enforcement of prohi
bition, the amendments to interstate
corcmerceact, and numerous other
laws recently enacted by Congress.
The prompt and proper enforcement
of these new laws Is usually the rea
