1LBTJQTJERQTJB CTTIIEN. PACK TTIRKal ARE ill PLANS FOR CONGRESS Work Is well Under Way and Will be Finished by Opening Day Without Fall. r Ths board of control la fast com pleting preparations for the Sixteenth national Irrigation Congress and In ternational KxpoBitlon which will oe held In this city September 1 to Oc tober 1, and ail will be ready for the appointed day. The congress will open promptly at thirty minutes after nine o'clock, Tuesday, September 29, and the daily sessions will be from that hour in the morning until 11 In the evening; with a m.d-duy recess of sji hour or o for luncheon, and two hours iu the evening for dinner. For the congress a, fine convention hs.il has been built by the city, and tt will be used as and kHown as the Armory building after the congress adjourns in October. This building was erected at a cost of $18,000 and represents one of the finest of its kind is the west. This hall will be used (or territoral conventions, re ligious conventions, etc., as well us (or an armory of the National guard. The building has a seating capacity of nearly thirty-five hundred, and in Tentllatien and acoustics it to Ideal. The grounds at Old Albuquerque, where the exhibits will be displayed, are rapidly nearlng completion ana the roads and walks are now being put into shape for walking by the spreading of crushed bark through out the grounds, which promises to make walking a pleasure. While Col. fax county 1ms a building of Its own which was erected at a cost of about $i,00, other counties will use space in the Casino, a hall of ample propor tions. The other states and territor ies will have the capacious Horticul tural hall. One of the most beautiful spots on the grounds will in all probability be Heldelburg. It Is at this place, under large spreading cottonwoods, that ths ladies and gentlemen may both sit down at small tables for rest and re freshment, flagons and steins and per haps a sandwich and a p'pe. It will be In the; cosy, German-like quarters that Milwaukee, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas City and Bl I'aso will foam and flow, not freely of course, but with a hospitable good cheer that will make the visitor's wel come a certainty. Possibly one of the most interest ing exhibits for which contributions are expected to arrive from all over the west as well as parts of the east, in the vry near future, will be the poultry show. It Is thought that In the neighborhood of 600 entries Will be sent here, some of which will rep resent some of the best chicken ranches in this part of the country. The cups and prizes offered for the best stock are well worth trying for and no doubt will be hotly contested. This show, if all signs be fulfilled, will be one of the attractive corners of the big park, and every man, woman and child who owns a bird that he is proud of Is invited to get In. There Will be no entrance fee for -this ex hibit and the quarters In which the stock will be displayed are most com modious and well ventilated. It Is In the irrigated valhya of the mountain west, peculiarly, that Is the home of poultry, and the local committee in vito all fanciers to bring their best blrdA, turkeys, geese, ducks, chickens, etc., bo as to make the show a good one, worthy of the beautiful prises of fered for the best specimens dis played. The Irrigated west promises to be well represented in the National Ir rigation con k ress. The story of ths reclamation of the desert by private enterprise will be told "by many old pioneers and representatives of the United States reclamation service, and the bureau of forestry will tell what the government Is doing. - Some of these addresses will be illustrated by stereopticon views which will be thrown upon canvas. Some of ths subjects which will be discussed dur ing the night meetings will be the lec ture of "Grand Canyon of Anions," by Nut M. ISrigham, which will be heard on October 3, and "Men Who Won the West," on October 4, both of which will be illustrated by stereop tican views. The United Slates gov ernment will be represented in the congress, besides bureau oflicers, ny Vice President Fairbanks, two mem bers of President Hoosevelt's cabinet and senators and representatives of the United States Congress. At least this Is the unofllcial promise. The bureau officers will be F. 11. Newell and C. J. Blanchard of the reclama tion service and Gifford P.ncliot of the bureau of forestry. These latter mentioned gentlemen will make tech nical addresses. Some of the mem bers of the diplomatic corps, stationed at Washington, will attend the con gress, unofficially. Who all, la not known as yet, owing to the fact that they are all busy with their official duties. However, all have become very much interested in the reclama tions of our western deserts by Irriga tion and all want to see and learn. Notwithstanding their good intentions of wanting to be present during the congress uncertainty reigns supreme as to their coming owing to the fact that their annual vacation Is almost at a close and many of them will not be able to decide until they see what im mediate duties are in front of them. Foreign governments, officially, will be represented as follows: France, II. Rene Taernier, chief en gineer of the department of publlo works and hydraulics. Chiie, Senor Carlos Camacho, chief of the seed test bureau of that gov ernment. Cape Colony (South Africa), O. A. Oosthuisen and J. A. Schoeman, em inent men of the science of irrigation and members of the parliament of their country. Canada, Hon. Sydney Fisher, min ister of agriculture, and probably oth er ofneers of the Canadian govern ment. Brazil, Senho L. Baeta Naves, civil engineer and government inspector of public works. Dr. E. McQueen May, chairman of the committee of foreign representa tion of the board of control of the Na tional Irrigation congress, has re ceived Information from the acting secretary of state of the appointment of Dl Ignaclo da Costa Duarte to rep resent Portugal In the congress and of the appointment of Luis V. Abad to represent Cuba. The Instruction from the kingdom of Portugal comes through the Amer ican minister at Washington, who was In Portugal three weeks ago. Delegates and visitors will witness, in addition to the Irrigation congress and the Industrial exposition and fair, a dally pageant of outside attractions. The secretary of war has promised to send from western posts battalions of cavalry and Infantry, who will come with all the panoply of war. Including camp equipage. They will perform dally the routine of camp life, con sisting of dress .parade, guard mount, band concerts, etc., and daily one ot the battalions will participate In a street parade. The cadets from the military schools as well as the United States lnd.an schools of New Mexl;o and Ariaona will share in thus pa rades. In the pageant tribes of Pueblo In dians will appear, coming for a stay throughout the congress and exposi tion and fair. They will come from Lag una, Cocliita, Sau Felipe, San Do mingo and other pueiilos. The chiefs will carry the famous slkks presented to their predecessors iJ 1'rtusldciit Abraham Lincoln during the Civil ar, more than Xiity ears ago, in this pa..ule. The parade will also in clude i epresentatives of the Pima tribes ut Arizona who will attend and participate in the lestivitics. All of the lnuians will wear the fantastic costumes of their raco Bi.a rid.ng In floats und making solteiy as weil as Navajo blankets uill be tue Indian women arrayed in all their fancy dress ui.d Jewelry. The vrnt promises to be a uotable picture of the "Van ishing Kuce." hollowing the Indians squads of cowboys will ride their bronchos. These inonurchs of the desert will at tend, attired in their working cos tumes, with lariat, spurs and other accessories necessary in the taming jf the broncho. They will, in addition to participating iu the parade, also g.ve exhibitions in broncho busting, horse racing, relay racing, etc. In Convention hall the Irrigation ode will be sang en the epeniitg day iiy a choir of over one hundred velces and on one evening the Gokdoxi Le gend will be rendered by a famous soprano who will be here expressly for the occasion. Although the name of the signer is withhold, it Is thought that the part will be sung by Mew Mexico's favorite songster. Miss Claude Albright, who Is now in Eu rope but who expects to be prese.it la time for the festivities this fall. So, with the regimental toands, the Mexican bands, the cadet bands, ths Indian school bands, the visiting bands from the citUs and towns of the west, the choir , of one hundred voices, the voices of talented women of the two territories, and the bands of the carnival amusement company which will give two performances dally, there will be plenty of mmlo and some to spare. All this Is costing the city a large sum of money, but money is no object at this time and everything possible is being dons In order that the event be one never to be forgotten by those in attendance as well as the citizens.

Event of the werk were not of a uniformly favor able charactrr. Uoth cotton and corn slioMtd soinu avU-r. oration us usual during August; and though no im portant di-cl.nc was experleuci-d, still it Is plain i hat tne earlier promise of theso two important crops will not bu realised, rlisiuVs there is tho risk ot damage- from curly fruit, made all tho greater by the lateness ot both crops. Another tell days of freedom from frost will save the bulk of these crops from harm, though in some sec tions It will be the first of October before all danger is passed. The fail .it Pennsylvania earnings during July of $3,4UU,ouA also excited unfavorable euaniteiit, although the less in net earnings was kesi down to about JKoo.uuu. Added to the reactionary aniptonis were the poor annual re port u Smelters" and the Morocjo incident. On the other hand, if gen eral business is quiet, .the prevailing tendency is utimisiakabiy towards In Creased activity. Hallroad earnings as a whole are showing smaller losses both gross and net each month, la May tko percentage of loss in grois was 19, in June Zi, in July 18 and la August only 16. September will prob ably show still better results, fer the number of idle cars is steadily de creasing, and the latest traffic reports are more encouraging. Conditions in tho iron trade are also improving, August being the best month ot'the year thus far. Tho most satisfactory feature, how ever, as far as the security markets are concerned, Is the improved de mand for bonds. This was bused al most entirely on the extraordinary ease of money and the prospects of Us continuairce. The demands for bonds came from good sources, such as in stitutions or those controlling large sums wf money, and was not specu lative in character, although a num ber of issues have already scored ma terial advances. A significant inci dent was the sale of JlU,0U0,tu 4 per tent Philadelphia bonds at 103 1-3, contrasted with the inability of New York to place 4 V per cents a year ago. Tko bond sales on the New York stock exchange In August amounted to $2,000,OVO, or Hi. 0U0.000 mors than a year ago, while the sales since January have duubled over last year and reached more thau 60u,i)U0,0U0. Prises ot stocks are now very high, the average for the active shares be ing the h.ghest this year and the highest s nee May, 1907. Some of the leading shares are selling at the high est figures on reuord, and it Is sato to say that the bulk of the losses suf- fered during the panic have been re covered. As the shrinkage from the high point in January, lsu7, to the lowest po.nt in December of tho same year amounted to about $3,&UU,0U0,UU0 it can be seen to what a tremendous extent the recovery has gone. It would almost seem as if it bad been too rapid to last, and thut the tempta tions lor profu-tuking were irresist ible. Tuat in the limited space of ten months seuur.ly values should -o fully recovered from an acute panic is pleasing evidence of our wonderlul recuperative abilities, but it strongly suggests the necessity of caution, .is well as the ues.iabil ly of a period of wailing until the stability of the rise has been fairly tested. Inflationary Influences are actively at work, and tliese are being taken full advantage of by the boldest, ablest and strongest Hft of mit-rtiirii Ihn "Street" llnj ttvr J Keen. These ta.rtie4 are still under the market and no one can tell how far tin y may be able tii push the up ward movement. If abie they will prolong it until they succeed in in ducing the public to lake surplus stocks off their hands, and at present there Is lilt.e in sifclu to interfere with lhc,r plans if the present com munity of luii rest which evidently exist can bu Held together. There is reason to surmise that important fiuancial plans are under way and that the present manipulation . part ly for the purpose of gloal.lig new se curely issues. This can only be proved by Lme. It is well to remember, however, tiiat this a-toiiishiiig reeoveiy has taken place during a period of acute dcpnss.on in business, when ra lroad and industrial profits suifered extra ordinary looses, and when divldeuls with tew exceptions were either re duced, passed or unearned. It inut bo admitted that such a tremendous advancu in prices under unfavorable conditions is incongruous and open iu serious doubt as to either its sound ness or its permanence. The explana tion ot such a violent rebound is not at all diflicuit. The American sp.nl of ic.-41.cncy had not a little to Uo with it. Previous panics have often been followed by marked recoveries when no fundamental derangements remained1, but tli.s rise surpassed them till in rap dity and extent. The O'J toljer disaster found our merchandise markets free from overproduction, this alone averting the demoralization of business which has often delayed recuperation after upheaval. Then the credit situation, which was chiefly re sponsible for the crisis, has woiiJ sr f ul y improved; und this not only pre vented further disaster, but enabled many crippled concerns to fully re establish themselves, liut far and be yond all these elements In recovery has been tho groat abundance and cheapness of money. Here is the matfic power which in the short space of ten months has added nearly $.)i', 000,000,000 to the value of our ee curlties In plte of unfavorable conll- tions. A hopeful spirit, markets free of surplus products, an Improved credit situation and good crop pros pects would have done wonders to ward recovery of themselves; still cheap money and plenty of tt out weighed them all in forcing the ad vance. Were it not for this fact It would be perfectly safe to assume that prices are now too high, ,.11 things considered, and are liable soon to descend to a lower level, but as long as tho money market remains iu its present coiid-lion it will vrobubly be difficult to bring about any very important reaction. The prospects are for continued I case in money for some little time to ci.ic. ciop d.iiiuiiu will be easily met and bus.inss requirements are moderate and tliiancul obligut. ns to bo met during tue next six months are such as can be easily provldi d for. bankers 'are in a veiy oonsci vatlve though hopefut mood, and only new flnttikclul proMi!iuls of the mo.-t ap proved character find ready support. Ausust insorporations were estimated ut only $43,000,0011, the smallest total in many months, and the total since January aggregated $778,000,000, compared with $1,219,000,000 the same time last year; another Illustra tion of tho severity of the panic There is a heavy accumulation of Idle funds not only at home but abroad. Gold is piling up in all the leading banks of the world owing to large productions and dull trade. Such con ditions, though the result of unsatis factory causes, work out the.d own cure, and are stimulating as regarls the future. Gold Imports this fall are not at all Improbable, since at present there is no other means of adjusting our International balances, which are running largely In our fa vor. Stocks may be too high, but as long as we are free from political scares or serious damage to the crops the eltuatlon will be favorable to active trading, especially If the market re mains under control of the present leaders, whose purpose Is to create a strong and active market.
