GOMMITTEE TO LOOK INTO FRAZZLED FAIR FINANCES 4 Five Members of Executive Board Selected at Meet ing Last Night to Make Complete Investigation oi nu cms Ueticit btíU ürowíng. Y. Gloom In considerable quantities was Injected Into the already gloomy nilu ation surrounding the iinancial uffairs of thfe twenty-nfth. territorial lair when at the meeting- of the executive committee last niRht the fact devel oped that the deficit of the fair just closed haa grown from $1300 to J1800, and that there is a pretty good prospect for a still further increase when the bills are all in and all col lectible subscriptions collected and turned Into the treasury. Soon after the meeting was -aJled to order last night Secretary Sellers announced enough new bills to In crease the deficit to Í1600, and during the meeting an additional $200 crop ped out in an unexpected spot. This 1200 has been paid to the sheriff of Bernalillo county and the check has been cashed by that gentleman In re turn for one gaming license, good in the county, which has not yet been ta ken out. The two hundred was paid by the Fair association through Pres ident Greer, with the understanding that the check .was to be cashed If cer tain games operated by Lynch and others were allowed to run. The games were operated for two days with the understanding that Lynch et al were to pay the Fair association $300 foi the privilege. The license money whs put up with the understanding thnt the games were to be allowed to run. Th'(T gair.es were'closed down, and by the-sheriff, but not until fter be had cashed the $200 license check. Thu as sociation hopes to secure the return of the money, or failing in that to obtain one county gaming licen.se which it may be possible to negotiate for a con sideration. TTnder present condition, however, the sheriff has the money and the association has an additional $200 deficit. This, however, was but one gloomy Incident of last night's gloomy meeting. President XV. II, dreor cnlled the meeting to order shortly after 8 o' clock with nil but we or two members of the committee present. Mr. Greer opeqed the meeting by calling upon the chairman of the exe cutive committee, Mr. AV. T. Sic Crelght, of the Daily Citizen, to state to the meeting what rumors of mis management, etc., had been in circu lation in connection with the fair. Mr. McCrelght said he did not believe ho was In a position to make such a state ment, when Mr. Greer mentioned the fact that he had read of such rumors in Mr. McCreighl's newspaper. Mr. McCrelght replied with a motion that the chair appoint an auditing commit tee with power to Investigate all de tails of the last fair. This motion was seconded, when Mr. McCanna suggest ed that the proper procedure would be to first hear the report of the secre tary and then determine whether the services of such a commit tee w ere needed. Tilla suggestion prevailed and the motion was withdrawn. Xo rinal ltcpoit Hearty. The secretary slid he could not make a llnal report as there were no funds to pay remaining bills, as all bills were not in and iis all collections had not ; been made on subscription lie then read substantially the report of the ' fliKt meeting last week, w ith the addition of Mil which increased the deticlt by three hundred dollars. The reading of these bills occupied some lime, the secretary being fre quently Interrupted by members of .he committee with fci nests for Informa tion about some of the accounts, fine bill came in for board for the New Mexico mounted police for live days. President Greer stated that he had made the arrangement with the cap tain of the mounted police and that that arrangement called for board for the men, but for one day. The matter was passed over for future considera tion.' In this way some two hours were consumed, when the secretary passed to a reading from his check book of bills that had been paid. It was shown by this reading that the $2.000 deficit of last year's fair had been paid by the secretary out of this vear'n receipts, that nil purses, prizes, etc..' had been paid, that most of the bills for labor had been paid, includ ing $300 of the salary of the secre tary, and that some bills for adver tising and material had been met. This reading also brought to light that there are about $X0 of unpaid sub scrlptloos and that the Fair nsoc!a tlon'a balance in the bank Is just $14. Whim all outstanding subwriptiotii liavo been paid in, all bills thus far received and unpaid, added, the deficit for this year, added to the deficit for the fair of a year ago, leaves the asso ciation with a total deficit of some thing over $4,!00, or to bo exact J1.535. And if to this the gaming li cense check Is added, the deficit amounts to $4 "35. It was at this point in the meeting that the gloom became general anil all pervading. The secretary then passed to the reading of a general statement of re ceipts and expenditures. This state ment showed that approximately 13. 25 had been paid out for racing. $450 for Indians, $602.45 for cowboys; fruit exhibits, $450; Jeffries, $579.50; the mounted police, $121. The . soldier $706; advertising, $1,200; stenograph ers and clerks. $278; electric lights. $590; care of grounds, $408; base bail $1,859; ostrich. $550;. starter, $300; exhibit hall expense, $250; care oi track, $215; bands, $650. These are the larger items of ex pense and are approximate, the state ment of the secretary being Informal, lie went on Into the receipts showing $864 realized from concessions this year against $1,250 last year, subscrip tions $7.295 this year against $7,900 last year, entrance fees for races $569 this year against $1,300 last year; gate receipts $4,249.45 this year against $3,360.05 list year. At this point the secretary was ques tioned as to bar and restaurant privi leges in the fair grounds, developing the fact that the association received no. return from these privileges this year.whlch in past years have brought considerable sums. The secretary called attention to the fact that the showing for this yeai would have been much better had hr not heen required to pay the $2.60Q Jeflcit of last year, but the committee, facing its $4.500 deficit, could get no jreat comfort from this view of it. Suggestions were then made by sev eral of the committee ns to ways and means to wipe out the deficit. The matter of pro rating the bills yet un paid was brought up, but it was shown that this method could not be entertained, some of the bills having already been paid In full. An In vest igt'Miiim Nooileil. It was at this point that Vice Presi dent George Arnot came forward with the suggestion that brought forth the only dellnlte action resulting from the meeting. Mr. Arnot said that there was no use discussing plans for rais ing money to raise the deficit while the present rumors as to the manage ment of the fair were in circulation. He then went on to state the rumor which he said retlected directly not only on the officers of the association, but on the committee, and which must bo proven or disproved fully anil finally before any steps could be taken toward wiping out the deficit with any hope of success. He said that it was commonly reported that the fair had not been properly man aged, and that it had been run for the benefit of the Traction company. He said that within the day he had heard a rumor that the Traction com pany had received $500 for the use of the grounds. While he knew the ab surdity of the rumor, he believed that this and all other rumors of similar nature must be Investigated and wiped out before any move could be inad' toward paying the deficit, that the in vestigation must be full and complete and the report published in detail, so hat there could be no mistake as to ihe. facts; so that the subscribers to l he fair and the public generally could know whether or not the fair had been properly managed. Presi dent Greer said briefly that Mr. Ar not's suggestion was right, that an in vestigation committee with full (low ers should be appointed and that Us report should be full and public. Committee Appointed. P. F. McCanna then took the floor and said that since the Iden of the In vestigating and auditing committee seemed to be the prevailing one In the meeting, that he moved the appoint ment, or election of such a committee, lie named such a committee, leaving f.,ii ..( ,,r tr An Ills HHJiitT laiiunj -- ,t amendment was immediately offered, placing Mr. McCanna on the commit-' tee, which was unanimously accepted j by the meeting. The commiuee ut finally selected Is as follows: 1 A Macphersnn, charman; W. I. McCrelght, P. F. McCanna, Felix Les ter and R H. Hriggs. The committee is to first receive a full and detailed report from the sec retary, with all bills paid and out standing, and with power to examine Into all accounts, books and records. It is to report Its findings back to tti executive committee. In the mean time the officers of the association are to endeavor to collect outstanding subscriptions and to dev'ie ways r",1"1 means for raising the deficit. The committee Is expected to begin Its work at once and to make Its report, as speedily as possigji-. While the gloom somewhat gen eral and rather deep, it is not of snf-ficl-nt weight to cast any permanent shadow, over the association, for al ready the heads of the executive com mit'eo and the officers are at work to find a way out of the present difficulty and Into clear sailing, ami there Is no doubt that they will succeed. Plans were suggested last night, none of them very feasible, but all showing Fifty Years !m Standard (E1EAM To) A VJhW A Groam of Tarta? Powder pjlado From Grapas No Aium that there Is a determination to find a way out. Secretary Has Lottery Plan. Secretary Sellers came forward with the most elaborate filan suggest ed last night. He outlined to the com mittee a scheme by which 5.000 tick ets should be Issued to merchants, each worth one dollar', and that these tickets be given away with every pur chase of sufficient amount. When $5,000 had been sold, tiiere would be $4.500 for the deficit, and $500 re maining. This $500 would be award ed to the lucky man In the drawing. The plan looked good and a hopeful smile spread over the faces of some of the committeemen, when suddenly the still small voice of an attorney seated behind a desk piped up: "ou re like ly to get pinched for that; the govern ment won't allow lotteries." The hopeful smile vanished. There were other plans, but the committee deemed "it best to hold them ail in abeyance pending th unre port of the committee.
