Success in the senate for the time
extension bill, was conveyed to Phoenix
yesterday noon in a telegram from Sen
ator Mark A. 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.

All nations are today watching unhappy .Mexico,
.where bullets arc more potent than ballots, and
where the force of arms has replaced the consent of
the people in maintaining a form of government.
At the moment when universal attention is focused
on the land of revolution and chaos, the Arizona
Republican has made special arrangements with the
publishers of the latest and most readable book on
for the immediate distribution of this most re
markable book as explained below.
The Story of a Country Exploited for
the Benefit of a Few
The story of the evils which exist in Mexico has
never before been adequately told. All previous
attempts have been suppressed bv powerful in
fluences. Now, however, in THE TREE HIS
TORY OF .MEN ICO is given a complete descrip
tion of the conditions which exist a description
which will arouse a nation and compel reformation.
It tells, for the first time in detail, the actual condi
tions as they exist today in Mexico conditions of
which the American people have but a faint con
ception. It describes the state of rebellion and brigandage
which has prostrated one of the most productive
countries on the Western Hemisphere. It tells how
railroads have been destroyed; how mail and tele
graph facilities have been suspended: how mines
have been shut down, cattle allowed to stray un
branded, crops permitted to die unharvestcd, and
how civilization and peaceful pursuits have become
impossible until order has Ix-en restored by a strong
ted to plunder, confiscation of property, and wanton
shows why government is at a standstill, why chaos

the United States and other countries, who in times of
their future in Mexico.
More Absorbing than the Pages of Romance
THE TRUE HISTORY OF MEXICO contains the full history of this romantic and beautiful land from
the days of Montezuma and the Empire of the Aztecs to the present time. The early history of the country
reads like a book of romance in its account of the adventures and deeds of those who have led the st rubles
for and against the only Latin-American country which physically touches the Tinted States, lint,
better than romance, it chains the reader to the book because the talcs it recounts are not fiction, but ac
tual achievements.
The Story Told in Pictures
The book is superb in its illustrations. It contains (4
trations, and a map printed in colors.
These illustrations portray the great natural beau
ty of the country, scenes of fascinat ing historic in
