RECLAMATION OF GREAT ACREAGE WAITING UPON STATEHOOD Tremendous Irrigation Develop ment in New Mexico Held Up Chiefly Because We are a Territory.

Sulli van, the advance sheets of which have Just come from the press of the New Mexican Printing company, Santa Fe. Notwithstanding the magnitude of these it is stated by the secretary of the immigration bureau, based on ac tual correspondence of the office with Irrigation promoters, that the engi neer's report gives no Idea of the amount of reclamation work which will start In the near' future If New Mexico becomes a state. The report of Engineer Sullivan which Is a long one and' liberally illustrated shows an astounding In crease in the number of Irrigation projects in New Mexico during the past two years; shows an . equally mi prising number of such enterprises completed and in operation and an Increase In the number of applications for water rights. whluh U.majdng. To those who do not realize the vast strides made In putting vuaer on the arid lands during the past few years this report will prove an eye opener. "The work outlined and the acre age covered in the engineer's report Is rivaled in extent by that now in con templation," said Secretary Hening yesterday. "The beginning of work on many new enterprises is held up largely on account of the unsettled statehood situation.

I refer to bona fide projects (lacked by responsible men who are ready to do business. "The Immigration Bureau office Is receiving a great many letters from promoters of irrigation projects who say flatly that a state government will he the very strongest inducement for them to proceed with construction. There are several others reasons for delay; embarassment of a number of the big bond houses which handle Irrigation bonds, a merely temporary condition; caution in investments, due to general financial conditions; and the fact that water right matters have not been entirely adjusted, a reason which is being rapidly removed. .Ml these men say, however, ihat the ter ritorial form of government is the chief cause lor delay in starting their projects. It would be hard to esti mate what statehood means to New .Mexico in encouraging irrigation alone; and our admission this winter will result in tremendous increase next year in the amount of money ex pended on land reclamation in New Mexico." A Complete Hfxirt. The territorial engineer's report Is complete and detailed. It takes up every phase of irrigation develop ment, legal, technical and financial and describes every project under way or completed in the past two years with figures as to cost land re claimed and equipment. Especial at tention fs given to the big projects in Colfax coun'y, and none of the smaller enterprises are overlooked. In the inrtduction the engineer siays: Since submitting my' first report two years ago, matters pertaining to this department have progressed and mul tiplied extensively along all lines. Irrigation has been assisted by the ex tension of the Carey Act to the terri tory and the adoption of the District Irrigation law by the last legislature. Three years ago the territorial en gineer was questioned when he made the statement, that New Mexico would ultimately Irrigate two million acres of land; today he is criticised for his conservalsm. "Within the last two years there have been filed 485 appli cations for permits to appropriate water covering an Intended area to be Irrigated of over two million acres of land. This amount' Is, of course, In excess of what will actually lie developed from these filings, as the filings In many cases are larger than the water Bupply will warrant, rIbo several parties having made duplicate filings on several very large pro jects, however, within that time there have, been 40 Irrigation projects that have been completed; 30 projects that have one-fifth or more of their con struction work finished and 26 others that have been commenced. There is an estimated one-half mil lion erf "water horse power" that can be generated by waters of the terri tory, and in many places the fall Is so great in the streams, that a given amount of water will generate enough power to .pump several times that amount from the underflow. There have been 27 water power filings made within the last two years which contemplate the development of near ly one hundred thousand horse power. With the devertlng of the natural flow of the various streams, the con struction of storage reservoirs and the pumping of water from the under flow, combined with the economic and scientific use of the water, It Is evi dent, that New Mexico will eventually Irrigate an area greater than the com bined area of Delaware and Rhode Island. One of the largest opportunities for the development of water for Irri gation will be found in the storing of flood waters from various arroyos all over the territory, as large volumes of water come down these arroyos at In tervals and if these waters were stor ed, It would enable the development of ft water supply for the Irrigation of many thousand acres of land. The greatest development in Irri gation through actual construction work has been In the northern and eastern portions of the territory, there being very little construction work In the southern parts of the territory, excepting the United States Heclnma tlon Service projects known as the Carlsbad, Hondo and Rio Grande pro jects. The construction work, gener ally speaking, is being made In a more permanent and substantial man ner than in years past. A great cater ing is being made to reinforced con crete. Nearly all of the headgutes in the various projects are of either Iron or concrete or both, while the types of dams vary from solid concrete, to reinforced concrete, earth and rock fill. Practically all of the constructed diversion dams are of either rock fill or earth dams with reinforced con crete cores, the upper face of the dam being paved with either reinforced concrete or rock rip-rap. All the lat ter type of dams are provided with sufficient spillway capacity at other points. The major portion of the canals are in earth and unllned, however, there are a number of smuller projects in which the canals are being construct ed by having them either lined with concrete or carried In -pipe lines. Quite often the laterals are lined with concrete and generally all the canal outlets are of concrete or cast iron. On the whole the construction de velopment is tending toward a much Improved character. The Good Koads law passed by the last legislature has placed H great deal of extra work on ths department as the territorial engineer is the engineer of tho commission and under whom the supervision of construction work Is done. It Is a pleasure to note what has been done towards the construc tion of a system of highways in o short a time and the confidence the people have In our results, wherever we have worked. The territorial engineer has taken great Interest In this work and has taken particular care In getting com petent men to oversee the construction work, and that proper locations of roads are made, that plans of con struction pre best suited to each par ticular case. The account and expenditure of moneys Is particularly guarded. No account Is paid unless there Is n voucher for same which Is checked In the otrice of the territorial engine li the flood Hosds commission and by the territorial auditor. The results accomplished are very t Erwii jing. pot ohJr t- Hit' territorial engineer, but also, we believe, t.. the public. The lmKirtnnop of Statehood. In conclusion: With the coming f statehood and the adoption iff short but effective constitutional provisions. Insuring the appropriation of water with beneficial use as the basis, meas ure and limit of a right and priority of appropriation being recognised and supported with one of the best irri gation laws known, together with the Carey act. which applies to govern ment land; the District Irrigation law applying to patented lands: the sys tematic collection of hydrographic data; the adjudication of water rights a more scientific use of waters and the conservative appropriation of same, together with the advancement of the construction of good roads, there seems to be no reason why New Mexico should not develop very rapid ly along these llnes. E Will Halloran, Former Albu querque Boy, Believes Revo lutionists Will Make Good Some Day. That the revolution In Mexico Is pretty much at a standstill nt present, but that it may break out at any time with renewed vigor and with good chances for success. Is the statement made by Will Halloran, a former Al buquerque boy, who left Inst night for the Interior of Mexico after a brief visit' In" this city. Mr. Halloran Is a son of Ralph Halloran, and a sis ter of Mrs. O. N. Marron of Albu querque, and holds an Important ex ecutive position with the Sierra Mir ing company at Ocampo, being In charge of tho work at the Santa Eduviges mine, a gold und silver property. "I came to the United States via the west coast," said Mr. Halloran last night, "and had plenty of oppor tunity to observe the results achieved by the revolutionists as well as what It Is possible for them to accomplish. The Insurrectos are quiet at,the pres ent time, but If they obtain a suffi cient supply of arms and ammunition, President Dins will find himself sud denly in a very serious predicament. The chief trouble with the revolu tion is that it lacks organization. The sent of Insurrection for a time was at Guerrero, some eighty miles from Ocampo. When the revolution, advanced to Ocampo, the federal offi cials surrendered the town quietly and not a shot was flmd. The revo lutionists have the sympathy of near ly all the people and thousands of men are ready and willing to Join them, but are unable to do so because of the lack of arms, ammunition and provisions. If there were stat ed places where revolutionary sympathizers could enlist and where they could be furnished with arms and food, General Madero would soon find himself at the head of an im mense army. "The people are willing to 'rise up In arms,' but haven't any arms to rise up with. The revolutionists who are In the game, however, are In It to stay. They will never surrender. Surrender is certain death, as all revolutionists are shot Immediately after being taken. Naturally, the revolutionists prefer to .die fighting than to die with their hands tied be hind their backs." Mr. Halloran said that It Is his be lief that President Diaz and men nt the head of the Mexican government are beginning to realize In earnest that the laws of tho country, in sev eral respects will have to be modern ized and changed before the people will be satisfied. Ocampo, the mining camp where Mr. Halloran Is now located, Is In tho State of Chihuahua, in a very Inac cessible part of tho mountains. From Mlnncu, the noarest railroad point, the trip to Ocampo requires three days over trails on mules, und seven days In wagon over wagon trails. Mr. Halloran says that airships between Miniaca and Ocampo, capuble of car rylng passengers, would do a profit able business. IIACKBOXF, OF ItKltKIi MOVKMI'.NT nitOKF.X.

The back bone of tho revolution In Mexico ap pears to have been broken, accord ing to telegrnphlo advices to the state department from Henry Lane "Wil son, United States ambassador at Mexico City. Mr. Wilson says the revolutionists apparently have split up Into many small groups which probably can be disposed of easily. He says the revolutionary move ments In Cnlhunhtta, which has Scon the principal theater of war recent ly, practically have ceased. American Consul Ellsworth today t 'l;-graphed the Mute department that It Is evident the Mexican rebels have commenced operations near Cludad Porflrlo Diaz.

Uf TERRIFIC ROASTi FOR OUR ROADS b mm WORST HE ENCOUNTERED WERE NEAR ALBUQUERQUE Coast to Coast Pathfinder Has Interesting Account of Trip in Current Weekly Magazine. "Bernalillo county Is one of the smallest In New Mexico and Is said to be one of the wealthiest; but be It said as a mark of Its lack of en terprise, it presented the worst so called roads encountered on our whole tour.' This Is the highly disagreeable truth spoken by A. U Westgard, In the current number of Collier's, which contulns an account of the re cent coast to coast trip of the path finding ""Premier." The visit of this car to Albuquerque on Its way from New York to Los Anuulen will h t chiefly remembered of course be cause Harry Drum, of Chicago, Jour nullst abroad, carried off a bride from this city In the person of Miss Con stance Sellers. Westgard' article, Is Illustrated with various views along the route, Including one if the remarkable piece of road building down the La Hajada cliffs between here and Santa Fe; a view of a camp near Albuquerque and a scene In the White Hiver national foreBt of Arliona. Mr, Westgard sayi In part: Proceeding south from Las Vegas, we traveled through some exceeding ly rough country, steep climbs and rough wash-out roads with high cen. ters, to Old Bernal, a Mexican town and a conglomeration of adobe huts which offered quite a problem when it came to finding the main trail out of the village. We followed the rail road to Glorletn, from where we mnde a short cut up through Pledras Negras canon to Santa Fe. During the 137 miles from Las Vegas to San ta Fe we had melUonly one man who could speak English, the telegraph operator at Glorleta, and, by the way, he gav us wrong directions, which led us Into and out of some of the roughest trails ever traversed by an automobile. Hut for a bowing ac quaintance with Spanish, acquired during a residence of some years In the southwest, we would have had a hard tlme of It this day. In some parts there were, po , main roads; all trails looked alike and showed about an equal amount. of traffic, and many a false start was made at the fre quent forks where no one was at hand to glve directions, Sunta Fe, being off the main line of the railroad. Is not visited by tour lsts to the extent it deserves. It Is without question one of the most In teresting towns In America. Its old est house, built In 1530, Its narrow streetB lined with adobe houses. Its splendid old church and picturesque plaza, Indians peddling wood carried on the backs of burros, its Mexican restaurants, all lend a charm and pic turesqueness rarely met with . I had a conference with Governor Mills at the capltol, 'and discussed the matter of road Improvements with him and with the territorial engi neer. I found them thoroughly alive to tho Issue, and believe great Im provements will shortly appear along the route which we traveled. From Snnta Fe to Hernalillo we followed a territorial road recently constructed. It wag splendidly built In many zig zags down La Itnjnda mountain, a lava cliff; but across the sandy Had Lands beyond It was of doubtful value, being merely graded through loose sand, and where moisture la o scarce It will remain a heavy road until copiously saturated with oil. Albuq uerque is located In Bernalillo coun ty. It Is one of the smallest counties In the state, and Is said to be one of the wealthiest, but, be It said as a mark of Its lack of enterprise. It pre sented the worst so-called roads en countered on our whole tour. We were told harrowing tales of what we would find thirty miles be yond the city, at the nio Puerto. There would be two feet of water, muny dangerous quicksands, etc. Af ter leaving our pilot some ten miles out. we certainly did encounter plen ty of deep sand and a bunch of coy otes, on which we assiduously prac ticed shnrp-shootlng, but we crossed the Puerco river without knowing It was the river. There was no water whatever, merely a sandy wash and no quicksand, but we ran Into a lot of confusing trails. On reaching La gunn, a splendid specimen of Indian puebla, and the only one close enough to the Santa Fe railroad to be dis tinctly seen fr'im passing trains, we found that no gasoline was to be had, so we proceeded over what was noth ing more or less than a rotten road to Cuhero. fifteen miles distant and off the railroad. There we procured fifteen gallons of welcome gasoline. We now began to realize that the gasoline problem was becoming seri ous, especially after getting only one and a half gallons more at McCarthy's the last station on the railroad which j wP expected to see for another 360 miles. The country south of the Banta Fe I and north of the Southern Pacific , railroad In western New Mexico and eastern Arizona Is beautiful beyond description, and has the further and unusual charm of being absolutely new to tourists. Ours was the first automobile seen or a major part of (his section of our route. The first habitation south of McCarty's was El Itaneho del Ptiente lie Mnlnpals. located 60 miles south nt (he point of a lava lied some 10 miles wide and about 45 miles long. This lava bed is about 8 to 10 feet high, perfectly Mack,. And ull of deep crevices. Our road skirted this formation Its entire length; ' snd ' passed between It mid multloolornd sandstonsv clltfs, rising precipitously some 600 feet ab"e our heads. The distance between the ttrn formations varied from a few feet t. ! one-eighth of a mile, and the road-j bed was deep sand, caused by ubras- !. ions from the cliffs. This country ts romantically called by the Indians "Homansls." snd most appropriate ly it l named. We pitched our fouithl camp in this enchanted section, and the next day w,e reached Nations' , ranch, where we procured gasoline and were most hospltablv entertain- ed. j Into n Crater. i More rough country end badly ! washed roads to Salt Lake. This little I lake, locally called Luguna Sallna de Zunla, Is a unique natural phrnome- ' non. It Is located In a deep kettle : or crater, and is so anlty that it Is j said one can not even wade knee- I deep In It without holding on to stone 1 to keep the legs from bobbing up , like corks. It has two hollow cones , arising from Its surface, and thesn I are said to be bottomless. The sur- ! face of this lake covers about nine or ten acres, and on Its shores Is lo cated a small Mexican village, the i inhabitants being mainly engaged In j gathering salt for stockmen of the , region. It was. Indeed, a hard climb ( for our car out of this crater, but ours j had the distinction of being the first , ever seen In those parts. Shortly af- I terward we crossed the line Into Ari zona, and after a lot of hard going over lava-strewn roads we landed pretty tired at Sprlngervllle, a Mor mon settlement and headquarters of the forest service for the White river national forest reserve. We found a very fair hotel here and plenty of gasoline at fifty cents a gallon. The next day we climbed up through mag nificent pine forests, and ahove the timber line found tho old road, al most obliterated by snow twenty Inches deep; for eight mtles we plowed along, backed and forged ahead again, consuming four hours In covering the distance, working stren uously with a shovel all the time. T'p on re-entering the timber the snow disappeared, and at Cooley's ranch we had excellent quarters for the night. Upon arriving at White TUver Apache Indian agency, the agent, up on presentation of my commission as a special agent of tho United Stntea Office of Public Roads, kindly let me have five gallons of cleaning fluid, used In tho tailor shop; this was dandy 90-prnof gasoline, and made the car run like a colt. As this quantity was Insufficient to take us to the next gas oline station, we called at Fort Apache and from the officer on duty, by the use of the same persuasive documents employed at the agency, procured an other five gallons of cleaning fluid. We now met with a distinct surpr.se the roads were not only getting bet ter but really good. The country was growing wilder, tho road winding up and down deep gorges and crossing the White river and the Black river always, however, built on scientific grade. ' In this region the r were no houses whatever except a government ctatlon established t the Black river ford. Wild turkeys, ducks and moun tain cats were plentiful, and the scen ery was truly Inspiring. We struck the railroad again, this time a branch of the Southern Pa cific, at Hlce, and followed It for twenty miles to Globe,' a thriving copper-mining town. From here to Phoenix via Roosevelt Hum we again were out of touch with civilization, though we had an excellent govern ment roud tor one hundred miles. Passing of Gallant Soldier of Civil War and Prominent lllinoisan of Interest to the Veterans Here. The Onlena fiazette of (lalena, III., contains a notice of the death In Chi cago of Oeneral John Corson Smith, formerly of Onlena, and a distin guished veteran of the civil war, who had slnco been prominent in Illinois, holding for two tcrrnB the office of state treasurer. "General Smith was my captain in Company I, Ninth Illinois volunteers," said W. W. McDonald of O. K. War ren post, fl. A. R., "f this city yes terday. "He became major before leaving the state, was promoted to lieutenant colonel, and was brevet ted brigadier general by President John son for conspicuous bravery on the field of battle. He Is the elxlith mem ber of my old company to die during the past yeur, so, you see, the old boys are Jtolng fast." "He was a fine man," concluded Mr. McDonald, "As an examtdn of bis Integrity, while he was treasurer of Illinois a theft of some thousands of dollars occurred. Instead of look ing to bis bondsmen, Oeneral Smith paid tho entire sum out of hla own pocket and It came very near leav ing him n jioor man." Oeneral Smith served also ns lieu tenant governor In Illinois and was one of the prominent men of . the state. He was a great f.-nternlty man, being one of the Ave active members of the supren.t council of thirty-third degree Masons in Illinois, n Vetera n chief of the Masonic Veteran associa tion of Illinois, a member of the Royal Arch of Scotland and of the Knights of Rome and Constantlne, In which as past grand sovereign of the Imperii!1 council of Illinois he had the highest grade, that of the Knight of the (iriind Cross of Constantino and M.
