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

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
The commission went over the mat

schedule already published, decided to

hang up purses aggregating $1,500, or
about thr;e times the amount offered

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

THE STORAGE DAM
STANDS THE TEST
PASSED SUCCESSFULLY THE EX
PERT INSPECTION OF JOHN
It is Above Criticism. 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
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
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
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
