AN INTERNATIONAL WATER COMMISSION L. C. Hill Named by State Department to Represent the United States in Conference With a Mexican Engi neer Concerning Colorado River Dis pute. L. C. Hill Is no longer a mere inter state official in matters of reclamation and irrigation but has been projected into the international field of activi ties as a representative of the United States. This Is not the result of any previously conceived ambition on his part and it was all fixed before he knew anything about it. When he drop ped into the office of the secretary of the interior the other ray Mr. Garfield asked him if he had yet undertaken his work in Colorado. He replied that he had and had the Laguna dam well along In construction.' His chief re plied that he knew all about that but meant something else entirely, having iii mind the settlement of the respec tive rights of the United States and Mexico, to the waters of the Colorado, which business said he secretary, had been turned over to Mr. Hill bv the state department. It was then ex plained to him that by an arrange ment with Mexico a commissioner was to be appointed by each government to inquire into all the facts In the case and report back their recommendations as 1o the rights of the two nations. Mr. Hill had not previously heard of the matter and so informed the chief. explaining that he had been moving around pretty rapidly of late and his mail had not yet caught up with him. When he returned to Phoenix Satur day night he found awaiting him a commission appointing him to the of fice mentioned signed by Acting Sec retary of State Bacon. Asked yester day who the Mexican commissioner was or when he would undertake this work, Mr. Hill said he had not yet been Informed as to the identity of his col league. The matter under dispute Is one the southwest is more or less fa miliar with. It grows out of the fact that the Colorado's lower reaches run through Mexico and to the west Mexico has quite an area of irrigable desert land. Naturally that govern ment desires to retain control of as much water as possible. Xo better man for the purpose could have been selected than Mr. Hill for he Is what might be called the general superin tendent of the Colorado and comes as near owning it as anybody could. More than that, he hopeB some day to have it thoroughly tamed and brought un der control so it will practically eat out of his hand, though it was mighty recalcitrant down Imperial way a while back. Mr. Hill is not only supervis ing the Laguna project but he has in his official territory the entire water shed of the Colorado. That includes the sites for many reservoirs that will probably be built some day. One of them will store a great deal more wat er than will the Elephant Butte dam shortly to be built on the Rio Grande river. The Elephant Butte in turn will hold twice as much water as the Roosevelt basin is designed to hold and the Roosevelt basin as everybody knows will be the biggest artificial lake of water in the world when it is finished. Returning to Mr. Hill, this commis sion was no part of his business to Washington, as explained. When he left here he had no notion of going to Washington but did so when he saw the need of it, in connection with the effort to secure a little more money for the Arizona projects. In this he was entirely successful. The rate of construction by Mr. O'Rourke's force at Roosevelt has been so great during recent months that the fund for ev- Advertisements.

He was success ful in securing an added amount suf ficient Tor the necessities both here and on the Laguna project. The Eelephant Butte project on the Rid Grande river, said Mr. Hill, is go ing to be a wonderful thing when it is well under way. One of the marvels of the reclamation work is the variety presented in the various projects. Only in certain general ways is one any cri terion for another and each has Its problems of detail that must be work ed out without precedent. The Ele phant Biltte dam will contain about twice as much masonry as the Roose velt dam and will impound twice as much water. The land to be irrigated is a long and comparatively narrow tract along the Rio Grande, the Irriga tion district being a matter of 180 miles in length and being supplied by three diversion dams of no small size, the water for all being stored by the Elephant Ilutte dam. One of the.ie )i . ersion dams is already finished and supplies water for about 20,000 acres cf lard ir. the vicinity or Las Cruetr. The surveys are well along on the Ele paant I ntte project and tho excava tion lor the big dam has begjp. Thero is no cement mill or power canal in connection with this project but tho bidding of a railroad to the damsite is one of the preliminary constructions. It s ;iot decid ed yet whether the San ta Fe v ill build this line or whether it will be built by the govern.nc-n:. Xor is It decided whether it will be a short line of twelve miles mainly for pur poses of dam construction or v.licthc-r it will be built with trade and com merce in view and run over a different Mute, some loitv miles long.

RMS and take advantage of the Greatest Embroidery Bargains on YARD YARD 'TWAS A LIVELY WtfK IN OLD WICKENBURu The Elks' Barbecue and Other Events Along the Hassayampa. Wickenburg, May 17. (Special Cor respondence of The Republican ) Jack McQuade, the short order man, moved into his new residence last Wednesday. He also purchased another lt giving a frontage of 150 feet by 140 deep. The barbecue and picnic held by the Wickenburg Elks at the Brill grove last Sunday was the event of the sea son. The special train from Wicken burg made two trips to the grove be sides many rigs went down. J. W. Munchus attended to the roasting of the beef, pigs and sheep. Paul Re nau Ingles, exalted ruler and other prominent Elks of Phoenix came up for the event. There was an abun dance of all kinds of refreshments and good things to eat. After partaking of the refreshments Harry Cowell prompter of the racing events, called the first event which was the sack race, by the little boys. This, race was won by Louis Holden. The egg race was entered by ten little misses and was won by Mary Piatt. Myron Genung and Pete Michelson won the three-legged race. The fat man's race was the race of the day and was par ticipated in by Harry Cowell. E. S. Jones, Angel Contrare and Charles Piatt and a few other heavyweight runners. As C. W. Piatt used to prac tice running with the Prescott hose team a few years ago he came in un der the wire an easy winner. As two of the heavy runners stumbled over each other in trying to get to the front and one accusing the other of trying to pull him back so he could forge ahead their seems to be a question in the minds of these two runners as to which is the fastest. The people of Wickenburg can expect to hear a chal lenge most any time now. Charley Goddard came in close second in this event. The sack race was the most in teresting. H. N. Cox, the mayor of Morristown, Is a fast runner, but- un fortunately as he had a good start he stumbled and fell but as a . roller he beat them ail. When he got to his feet again he had several pounds of sand in his sack. As the day's events were brought to a close the visiting members and the guests from Hot Springs Junction, Phoenix and Wick enburg united in saying that they would not have missed the day for any thing. Since the barbecue you can hear all kinds of rumors about a baseball nine, the married members playing the sin gle ones and even challenging the Phoenix brothers for a game. Felize Garcia is remondeling his house on Center street. He is having one of the finest porches built in the town. Mrs. R. W. Baxter, Bernice and Richard, are visiting in Phoenix for a few days.
