ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN.
THE ALBUQUERQUE CITIZEN Published Dally and Weckl.-. By The Citizen Publishing Company "W. a SI IUlTiLtlt, President, wii.mam r. niuKiAX, Kdltor and Business Hanainr, THE TIN CAN PARTY After scvcnvl days of most strenuous effort, Danny nnd Friday pulled off the tin ran party nt the opera houw hurt night. Judging from tbe shout of e.Matle Joy with which the morning paper perforated the atmosphere, It wa n Krand success. The people were highly pleased with the vaudeville performance, of Little Danny and h' understudy. It wan withal a very entertaining affair and will doubt loss, .according to the morning paper, make the president feel like thirty cents. It does not matter t!vt there were only 250 or 300 voters In the nudlenc, the balance being made up of the many charming ladic of which Albuquerque can proudly boast; students from the university, led by their Impulsive and erratic presi dent; young boys from the city schools and a sprlnkllnq of business men. who could not get out of participation in the affair without acting real rude towards Uttl- Danny, whose lovable nature towards the people has been so often demonstrated. All It needed to be ,1 Krand sueceFS in the way of a tin can party was th" presence of Little Herbert, the late boy executive, who was unavoidably prevented from attending by his alhRi ance to the republican party and other matters of state. Little Danny was tickled. It was even more than he expected. He had scarcely slept for three nights and the amount of ink he used In advertising the affair cost money. He gaied longingly at the box oltice as ii" thought of what it might have meant could he only hae put It on at the popular prices, It), 20 and 1) cents. "It was not political," as the morning paper an nounced. The only reference to politics was the state ment that the president was a well, a prevaricator that's not calling him a liar, you know a dupe, an easy murk, a grafting, trading, vote-buying politician, and 9 few other choice nicknames. It must have made th president real angry. No republican was too little or too big to be Included in the awful burst of popular wrath. Little Danny even went further. He hail It nicely arranged in resolutions written before hand' to tell the president that he simply must talk with Gov ernor furry when he arrives and tell him to line up with the morning paper, or take the awful consequences. The Morning War Cry arranged to pay all telegraph ex penses to get this "hunch" into the hands of the presi dent at the earliest possible moment. It will undoubt edly be given full consideration. Then the music that was a part of the vaudeville show which was up to the standard. A number of solos by the second fiddle were rendered In a most pleasing manner. They made quite a hit. The theater was handsomely decorated, according to the morning paper, with lemon blossoms and labels from tomato cans. The only regrettable feature was the fact that the grand old American Hag was dragged into close contact with Llttl? Danny. Cut the tin can party is over. So is the Hagerman regime. So Is the Macpherson fake reform movement. Will Little Danny, after this benefit performance in the Interests -of the morning paper, now turn his atten tion to explaining a few of the things in which the peo ple of Bernalillo county are deeply Interested? Will ho -onilde In them the secret of how he forced that com- blne to dlwy up the county printing when he changed bo suddenly from a democrat to a republican? Will he kindly tell how the county commissioners came to give him that county printing without putting him to the trouble of bidding for It? Will he tell why every fake reformed got a good, fat Job during the recent legisla ture? Will he tell why a territorial auditor was named who admitted having appropriated to his own use $2,300 from the contingent expense account of the territory Will he tell why Little Herbert feared to appear before the house Investigation committee nnd explain that land deal? Will he tell how ho came to be a member of the bureau of immigration, and his man Friday, the secre tary? Will he explain why the majority of territorial otticeholders are democrats? Will he tell how he dis covered that the president of the United States was a liar? Will he tell how he founil that Theodore Roose velt waa a fool, a dupe, an easy mark and a dishonest politician? Will he tell how much t tii Interest J, J. Tagerfttaft. father if the deposed boy executive, now holds In the stock of the morning paper? Will he tell the amount he was paid for conducting the recent cam paign against the republican party? Will he tell where he got the authority for the statement that the peniten tiary books were burned? Will ho tell how It feels to find his own weapons employed against him? If Little Danny will tell a few of these things, hi.i part in the tin can party last night will not assume i much of the aspect of opera boufe. The people at large. Danny, would like to know. WHO IS TO; BLAME? Carlsbad Argus. Ex-Governor Hagerman is under a very deep obligation to the Koswell Hecord and the Albuquerque Journal for their loyal support. They were of great assistance in causing his retirement. Little Danny says that The Evening Citizen is en- tilled to a bouquet for making possible the tin can party by its gratuitous advertising. The Kvening Citizen W always ready to boost a good show. The reference to the advertising powers of The Kvening Citizen Is a con ccsMon uulooked for at the hands of tho morning paper. It la, however, the truth. As an advertising medium The Kvening Citizen has no superior In New Mexico and its patrons are well aware of the fact. Kather strango thnt with 1,500 people "packed and Jammed" into an opera house that will hold only 900, that Little Danny was only able to get 971 signatures to that set of "liar resolution" about Little Herbert. Re member. Danny, there are 20,000 people In Albuquer que. Why didn't you put them all in the opera house and have a good crowd? Twenty-one inches of snow fell in Trinidad--nine incites on Friday and twelve on Saturday and yet there are some In Albuquerque and the neighborhood who complain at the little Hurry which visited this sec tion. The temperature at Trinidad also went down to five degrees below freezing. How happy Utile Danny is tudaj. The morning paper, with tho assistance of a few leading democrat of the Macpherson type, has actually proved that the president is a liar. This will be very Interesting news in Washington, where a number of aider n have tiled to do the same thing A lilrmiugham Judge charged tin- maud jury that It is as much a violation of law to play golf on Sunday as it Is to fccll whisky. This caused the Washington Post to remark that the Judge's charge looks like put ting golf halls and high bulls In the same category. And now Danny has the temciily lo cmpaic e'. Mexico with Kansas. There It only one other compaii sou left. Danny, and The Citizen Is too polite to put ym next The ill ii o!,.-. .V M , Headlight is optimistic, us all newspapers should be. rew tiling i can do a town mor? harm than a paper which is always looking on the dark side, and proclaiming Incessantly the existence of evil moral, physical, political or financial, iiut here is tlw bright -uii.-hlny bit which caught The Citizen's atteu Iio. in lite list issue of the Headlight: "Melrose more piosoiious than ever before, only a few dij-grumic-d .tuple got discouraged and gave up ho pi when we lost the division which, should It have remain ed here, would only support a few more people. It is the farming and stock raising Interests that count, an 1 Melrose has the start and Is the best situated town on the cut-off; therefore Its permanency Is assured. Slay by Melrose, and It will stay by you." The Morninr War Cry has nt lat come out, rather lamely. In favor of that city hall bond Issue. Llttl? Danny Is w iking lip to the needs of the city n degree at a time Is it possible that Little Herbert, the. Isiy executive. expects to get Into political vaudeville? He ought to choose other lields than New Mexico, where Danny anil Friday have everything corralled. "The deed mid tho motive," wails the morning paper. Never mind about that, Danny; the president discovered the deed and the motive some time ago. Danny Is adding to the liar clt:b at Washington as fast as ho can, but he Is unable n- yet to put the presi dent In the Ananias club. Throwing a Ultlo Light on the Chmc. The boy executive Is still handing out political jobs, despite the fart that he Is out of olllce. Come out of It. Herbert. The ladies. "Cod bless 'em.' 'made a good showing last night. Little Danny Is popular with the ladles. And now that It is all over, does Little Dannv still admit that Herbert is "resigned?" There was a noticeable absence of republicans a1 the tin ran party last night. Is the morning paper fully convinred that Hager man has really resigned? 00X)00X)0000XX))00XXXX0X) IRRIGATION. THE PROBLEM 8 OF YESTERDAY AND TODAY j xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoxxcoxxxx The Dallas Texas, News, recently said: Irrigation is as old as tho hills. There have probably been long and dreary centuries during which sufficient moisture to raise crops could not be secured in most parts of the earth In any other way. Irrigation was extensively practiced in Kgypt as early as 2,000 ii. C, and In Meso potamia. Persia, India, China and other sections of the east in times of remote antiquity. The great canal of the Pharaohs, connecting I'eluslum with the lied sea, was an irrigating canal.. Hut the most stupendous work for this purpose produced by nny ancient race was un doubtedly the Immense reservoir at Yemen, Arabia, built to store water for irrigating the valley of March. The dam of the reservoir was two miles long and 126 foot high, and was so durably built that It was in opera tion for more than 2,000 years. , In many parts of the world crops of all kinds de pend so wholly upon artificial watering that even races which have small conception of scientific methods of agriculture turn instinctively to it. In this hemisphere the ancient Peruvians and Mexicans built lmmon.' aqueducts for conveying water to fields which were scantily provided with it. In Kurope today tho south ern peoples practice It quite extensively. The valleys of the Po, Adige, Tagus, Douro and other rivers are subjected to a very thorough and systematic irrigation. The wonderful productiveness of the soil of Lombardy is attributed directly to the careful and skillful distri bution of water by irrigation. The federal government now stands committed to a" policy of irrigation on a large scale. Kight new tow ns have been established, 100 miles of branch railroads have been constructed, and 10,000 people have taken up their residence in the desert. The whole arid region of the United States covers approximately 000,000,000 acres. One-tenth of this area is already partially irri gated. Enough was done long ago to prove conclusive ly that when these dry lands are more fully supplied with water they cun unquestionably be converted Into valuable and fertile farming fields. To this desirable end nearly a million dollars a month Is now being ex pended under the direction of the geological survey. In the meantime, our Texas solons have taken steps In the right direction, and have performed ac ceptable service In passing the drainage and cattle acta. Little by little we will wine around to a prac tical Irrigation policy, as the increase in population ,-nlarges the demand for room and for land to cultivate. x2oo&cooooo MONEY TO BE MDE FROM HIGH BRED GOATS XXX)00XKX)XOOOOOOOCK0000000 In the United States there are at present, it is es timated, about 2.000,000 goats, says an exchange. Nearly two-fifths of these are Angoras. The rest are of various Imported breeds, cross-breeds and mongrel mixtures. Many American farmers keep a few go--.ts with their sheep, It being a well known fact that dor.s will not so readily molest a flock containing a goat or two. The climate and soil of most of the states of th union are well tltted for the raising of goats, and as a goat costs for proper maintenance only abou: ono eighth as much as a cow, ana yields a surprising num ber and amount of products there Is little doubt that competent goat raising in this country, especially in the vicinity of large cities, would prove exceedingly remunerative. The chief things to be rem inhered in this connection are that good bleeds are .!;-iillal to success and that although the goal will .h-lve ul.n st anywhere and stand any amount of "old -t dns best on dry land and when kept reasonably v inn. Most people have the idea that the goat, to .1 well must be allowed to run more or less wild ami be always kepi In the open air. As a matter of fact, il idapts Itself to farm life and gives Its best results when prop erly fed and stabled. It soon becomes much attached to those who look after It and :W foilow it keeper about simply for the pleasure of !;.).; ;b him. 00X00COOO000000 $ WASTE OF THE WORLD g TO BE ITS GREATEST ASSET tOCIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOX)00000JO There is a big lield lor endeavor in the problem of how to use the waste of the world. The western fanner wastes almost as much land as he cultivates. The price of his acres requires that he must cultivate less acres with less waste-. There is a great waste in human effort because "the round man gets in the quare hole" and vice versa A better system of education must find where men belong. In a thousand ways we spoil almost as must us uc make. What a chance for Hie inventor's brain! Some day the mighty force of the tides, now use less, will be harnessed and the power thai is In them set to doing the work of men. Some day the currents of air that wander Idly over the earth's surface, doing no t.uk save that or the turning of a few wind mills, ill be tamed into submission and use. Some day the heat of tin; sun, o prodigally distributed, will be made to warm tli,; houses of men. Some day the resident forces ,,f el.-etrielty thai He latent will lift many a burden ( t,e -boulders of men an. I women in I little children. Some . i . i y all tins.- i;i,-.,i forces will be Mured up ready to be r. leased at the touch of a button. These power, of nature overllow in wealth, liy their surplus energy u,cy Kive hint of their ability and their desire t.i help ,S ,,ur t.Us. And we will never be tun lent until we gei ,, ih.n H eoming to us fiom them. And- Imm of all - tin: solution of how lo use their waste holds the key to belter living. l!ut in the mean time these advantageg must be saved for the peopl and not swiped tip by the capitalists. m The Cub's Corner : Wasn't Little Danny tickled? 0 What's the use of crying over spilt milk? O Yes, Little Danny dear. Herbert is "resigned." o Wanted Ity the Morning paper, a alr of large sized gum shoes. 0 "2:t." iMesn't it look familiar Danny? 0 "Paw" J. J.

We will now go out ami look at the sun-set and see if we can get some trace of Llttlo Herbert, Ihe "Wander ing boy tonight." 0 "It's funny." said Dill Foler. "that no matter how many a feller gits handed to him, he never loses his taste for lemons." O It is currently reported Unit Her bert has resigned.

Little Herbert, could not be present. 0 Society ( ircles are all agog over the report ,thut Utile Danny will soon give a lemon pi'.rty and will lie assisted III entertaining by Little Herbert, the bov executive. 0 The funeral was . a very pretty af fair and was robbed of much of its sadness by the absence of the chief mourner, who Indulged In silent grlrf at the executive mansion.

The following contribution, which was evidently Inspired by the "Wearing of the Can" which appear ed a few days ago In the Cub's cor ner, was sent to The Citizen by a reader from Pajarito. It made the Cub so Jealous that he crowded It out ot his corner: O, Danny dear, and did you hear. The news that's goin around, Hull Andrews hus had Herbert tired. And he Is homeward bound. His tale of woe It is the worst That there has ever been. And now he's back upon the shelf The deadest we have seen. O, I saw old Dan Macpherson. I'pon the corner stand. And he said, please tell me what has struck This most ungrateful land? When our little game of sham reform Had shut the people's eye T. Koosevelt he got onto it. And, so we lost our pie. ).

He reckoned without Hull. I WILL PAY THE BOY. Call a Messenger and Send Me Vcur Work.
