Smith of Arizona. This is the first formal step the bill must take in its progress toward the statute books. It means that there re mains nothing between the bill and its linul passage and signing but the argu ment between the Senate and House Irrigation Committees on the amend ments, which the Senate Committee has added. As the changes are of min or importance, and probably only pur posed for "trades", it is not likely that much time will be lost before the bill becomes a law. Water users in session at the hearing on the northdde project boundary line. were apprised of the partial success ot the measure by Secretary Charles A. Van der Veer of the association, a lit tle after 12:30. Unanimous satisfac tion was expressed by all present at the Hearing. Senator Smith has been pushing the time extension bill with about all his energies, even wiring the Arizona dem ocrats that he would sacrifice an op-j portunity to speak on Thomas Jeffer son at a banquet in that patriot's hon or to be held here in April, in case his dates conflicted. There is some speculation among water users as to the luck the bill will have when it gets up to t lie House. In troduced in the House, it was branded with the approval of both represen tatives and senators before it came up for discussion in either house. The Reclamation Commission and the pres ident all declared for the measure. The Senate, with its usual eye to details, tacked some amendments to the bill in committee, and according to Mr. Smith's message, passed it shortly be fore noon yesterday: Following the St. Patrick's day ban quet, with all its culinary, oratorical and musical success, comes the period of accounts and auditings, and these show that the affair was quadruply classy. It "came out even" on the fi nances. To James P. Lavin goes much of the credit for the success of the banquet. He handled the tickets and personally sold ninety-five of them. The total paid attendance was 193. This was within three of the predicted number, wh'ch was 2t'0 even. Lavin is on the arrangements committee, together with T. J. Shaughnessy, C. J. McElroy, John O'Malley and Joseph Geare. The general committee consisted of Eugene Brady O'Neill, chairman, Mar tin McCauley, secretary, and George A. Olney, treasurer. The entertainment committee con sisted of William Michael Smith, Michael J. Foley and J. T. Whitney. From the fact that the 1914 banquet proved such an unqualified success, there is little question that the Irish men can hold another one next year; they may even form an association here. According to reports, Lavin has been asked to take charge of the or ganization of a post of Spanish War veterans here, just on the strength Of his success w ith the banquet.

The Regale Realizing that there will be hun dreds of people downtown tonight wiring to learn something of the res. di of the city election and that these returns will not be known un til late in the evening. Manager Cnckson of the Regale theater, 110 "!.' Kast Washington Street, made n special effort to secure a program t':- would appeal to those who had n V.v minutes on their hands in the ai'lcrni on or the evening. The result was that the t'niversal film service fi'iviisbed him an extraordinary "101" Pison photo-play Jn two reels en titled "The War of the Cattle Range." featuring William Clifford and Phyllis Oordon. This is un doubtedly one of the best offerings tl'.is company ever produced in two reels. "The Kyes of the Ood' of 1 liendship." is a Frontier drama that is bound to please. Kor comedy the Imp company presents "That Chines" Ijaundry," which is guaranteed to bring a laugh no matter which way the election goes. All in all it is a bill well worth while. Those Minstrels j This week the Coliseum is offering lone of "those entirely different" brands ' 'of amusement. It comes in Ihe shape I of the Nashville Students. The boys. ten in number, have scored the biggest ' hit yet. The act starts with a niinslrei , . firsi part, which is so comical it would t make a native of the stitne age laugh. Kour specialties follow in rapid fire ' order and Iiese are all eipially as good as the first part. Not only are the imembeis of the little company come dians, but musicians as will as lias been satisfactorily demonstrated both Ion the street and stage. A feature of the act is the last specialty in which hoop-rolling and manipulation are presented with a great degr-e of 'artistry. This particular part of tho I performance ought to be seen, as it i well worth the price of admission ' aione. The Nashville- Students will continue throughout the week, and if one may judge from the si.e of the house last night, business will bo ca- i paeity all week. Haft's Wigwiam "The Crip of Circumstances", an Ks sanay picwrc featuring Ruth Stoiie house an, Hryant Washburn, is the feature at the Wigwam today. This , picture is another real good one. An other good item of the program is the P.ithe Weekly, among the scenes of which is that of Hilly Sunday, preach ing during his recent great revival at Pittsburg. Picture or Villa's army driving the federals out of ojinaga arc- also shown. A good comedy called "And" is on Ihe program, whic h helps considerably.
