THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 16, 1909.
I nnnnimnninii I I lid IIII 1 1 I IIIRli bum oo ui Board Organized and Plans - Weil Under Way They are Named as Secretary and Speed Superintendent Automobiles Will Be a Big Teature as Well as the Horses. The territorial fair commission met yesterday and organized preparatory to presenting to the world the biggest show the coming fall that was ever roen in the southwest, and tlfe higgest show that was evrt- jeen in any coun try, backed br the population and the wealth of a province like Arizona. All the commissioner wire present. J. C. Ada was elected pi evident of ,the commission: B. A- Packard, treasurer; Shirley Christ-, secretary, and F.- S. Hildreth. superintendent of speed. All of these officials as well as Hugh Camp bell, the third commissioner, have had experience in previous fairs. In fact, all have been more or less connected with every fair -Arizona tuxa had, so it may be said there is now a full organi zation of competent and experienced mn. The commission went over the mat ter of program, aJopted the racing schedule already published, decided to g've the automobiles one, day during the week, probably Thursday, and hang up purses aggregating $1,500, or about thr;e times the amount offered UiSt year. . , ' In respect of the entries for the horse racing, however, it should be ex plained that there is an entry condi tion on six of tie races that was not 1 - CONFORMS TO NATIONAL PURE FCOD AKD DRUGS LAW.

The , races affected are the 2:27 trot, the 2:23 trot, the 2:21 pace, the 2:16 pace, , the 2:13 pace and the; 2-year-old trot, j The condition is that In these races.' the horses must be eligible to enter on September 15. That is to say, that If J a horse entered before that time and ' j iiii-ii at-iiuirru it ret oru luo last, lor j i that class before September 15 -he! would be barred. In all the other races ! there is no bar of that sort, they be- j ing fast .races, and in classes where 1 their racnivhi are not apt to be ma terially changed, or like the Copper stake, in which the world doesn't care j hw fast the horses go. The commission also decided to have fir. unrka nnp n ifh t iliirinc f hp fair J The special day side attractions liave not been settled upon yet.

An effort will be made to keep down the dust this year. President Bullard of the Automobile club, wbo conferred with the commis sion, was nsked for a little further line-up of the automobile events. He said he was giving the matter a great deal of attention and hopes to make a show beside which that of last year will appear as tame. He proposes to boom the Los Angeles-to-Phoenix road race to the fullest limit and feels sure he will have many entries. In the first place the purses offered by the fair will be competed for only by those who participate in the road race. That will be an inducement to enter as the money will look good and the purses with the entrance money will make good sums. The local people do not care to compete with the fast racers, both for fear of accidents and be cause the local auto men want to help along with the big show. Again it is not proposed to let some one from the outside ship in a car and clean up the money from those who drive over land and make it a big thing. Mr. Billiard says he proposes to try and also secure a locally contribute,! purse that will be worth while, to hang up on the road race, alongside The Re publican's silver trophy cup, which is to be annually contested for. Among those -lie believes he can induce- to participate in the road race this year will be Fenner's White Steamer, which now holds the 'cup; a Locomobile car, Shettler's Apperson Jack Rabbit, Bar ney Oldfield with a Stearns car. Smith with an Elmore, Hamlin with a Frank lin, the Mitchells with a Maxwell, and a Lorier car. There may fee others added. He proposes to give full wing to the automobile bug when he goes to Los Angeles shortly and start things going.

Best Organized Construction Camp, Best Workman ship,' Best and Most Economical Management He Ever Saw If anybody in this valley' ever had a doubt about the success and the economy of the work being done by the government at Koosevelt, the wis dom of Its conception, or the judgment and genius displayed in carrying out the plans, he should now cast it to tne winds, and be forever satisfied. He should thank God that he lives under such a government, and that the gov ernment has such men in its employ as comprise that portion of the reclama tion service operating In these parts. John R. Norton says so, and that settles It. Mr. Norton called at The Republi can office last night and said that for once In his life he -wanted to be In terviewed. He had been at Roosevelt himself, looked things over carefully for two days and got "next" to the situation, and thinks it should be "ex posed," that the people might know. He says he has been regarded in this valley as a pretty good single handed kicker, and when he has any fault to find he is not slow In speaking about it. but he lins looked over the situa tion at Roosevelt, and can't find a toe holt as standing room for a kick. And when John Norton is satisfied he thinks everybody else ought to be. Mr. Norton had business in Olobe and improved hl3 opportunity to come home via the dam site. He put in Sat urday and Sunday in that occupation and flatters himself that if there was anything wrong he would have found i He has spent a good part of his life contracting, building railroads, canals, dams, ditches and all manner of construction work. He knows a well ordered camp when he sees it, or thinks he does, which amounts to the same thing. Moreover, he thinks he is about as good a judge of the fin ished product as anybody. Though he is not an engineer he has camped out on the trail of engineers all his life and has noted their mistakes as well i as their successes. f - At Roosevelt he assumed his most critical air and went everywhere, whether he was asked or not. He ex amined every piece of work carefully. He went into the sluicing tunnel clear up to the gates and says It is the most wonderful piece of engineering and construction work he ever saw, and he has seen a lot of it. He says his comment on the whole Job Is that not an unnecessary rock has been moved and he couldn't find a single crack in any piece of cement work that has been done. There is less old ma terial and waste around the camp, for th amount of work accomplished, than on any job he ever looked over. Moreover, it Is the best organird construction camp he ever drifted into. Moreover and yet there Is more water in Salt river, five miles below the dam, than he ever saw In his life at this season of the year. Getting back to the dam again, he said it is" about 160 feet high, a he rememl)crs, fur about ninety feet in length at the south end, and then slopes down to the water level of something over"100 feet. . In the tunnel they arc cementing alout 16 ftet ier dy and doing a fine job. Aliout thirty feet of it just Iwlow the gates is yet to lie steel lined. The work is progressing rap idly and the cement w ill all be in before many weeks have parsed. The top and sides of the tunnel were ce mented before and it Is in fine shape. The washing out of the floor of the tunnel was unavoidable but when that condition, occurred it had to be fixed. That's all there was to it. He says he had heard the story' that the gales in the tunnel were warped by the weight of. the water above and in a bad condition. There is nothing to it. When speaking about that false rejwirt he came near using one of Mr. Roosevelt's strong words. Concluding his description Mr. Nor ton said that with the power house finished and the lines carrying power to the pumps in this valley, if any man has a doubt about the lands being able to produce good revenue on a valua tion of $50 per acre he should keep his mouth shut until he first goes to Roosevelt and looks things over. Then he'll be glad to keep his thoughts to himself. But. In order to do this and here Mr. Norton gets in with just a little criticism, for he haid1 to find some place to light in order to do this the gov ernment should be induced to con struct laterals in the valley that would carry at least one inch to the acre that the flood waters might be fully util ized. If that Is done he said the lands here ought to be worth from $300 to $400 per acre. The government has been at an enor mous -expense in this project has' spent a great deal more money than was originally contemplated. Many people Jtiink that money has been squanderei. Mr. Norton says he Is ready to believe that no a five-cent piece has been wasted. And what Is more, he says that If a lack of money should ever be felt in the finishing of" the work, the people of this valley would be foolish if they allowed the work to stop. Rather than that the association should get together and tell the government to begin drawing i on it at once for its annual payments. ', If that were not possible the farmers j should take up a collection and loan: the money to the government. He said he'd be willing to chip in even from the proceeds of tiis Buckeye ranch If" that shoutj be necessary. Mr. Xorton did not say that in anticipationAf any such condition but merely to let the people know what he thinks about the Roosevelt dam. TOO LATE TO CLASSIFY.
