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
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-

penditure this year was getting low and
it was feared there would be insuffi
cient money to finish the construction
of the Granite Reef dam, to aay noth
ing of the canals, unless the work at
Roosevelt were stopped, and that was
not to be thought of. 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.

chines of the Miller Sterling company,
was attended by a fair sized audience
and was greatly enjoyed by all. The

There Is more Catarrn m this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable. For
a great many years doctors pronounced
It a local disease and prescribed local
remedies and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced It
incurable. Science has -proven catarrh
to be a constitutional disease and there
fore requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally In doses from 10
drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly

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.
