New Mexico motor enthusiasts have been much interested In a plan Just broached In Colorado to bid more vlg irously for the automobile tourist trade anj a plan which It Is believed will be much discussed by the New Mexico Automobile association mem bers, who believe that such a scheme may be followed here. The Denver Post says: Colorado Is to become the prom ised land for tho auto tourist. It Is to be made so by a bureau which came Into existence for the sole purpose of bringing the sightseeing autolst to Colorado, and then according to h'ni such treatment that not only will he come again, but ho will come again and bring others, until finally this state becomes a meeca for the motor ists of the country. ltepresentatives . of the Denver Motor club and a number of com mercial organisations of the state who have formed the bureau will pub. lish a 100-page book descriptive of the roads of the state, showing tho points of interest to the sightseer, the location of hotels, garages and auto repair shops, and such other Inform ation as will attract the motorist. ir Colorado. But the work of the bur eau will not tlop here. It is plaincl to bring Into the movement every commercial and automobile organisa tion In the state, as well as the rail roads and hotels. A central bureau will be maintained in Denver dur'ng tho tourist season and branches or ganized in every city, town or district in the state. Through the commercial organizations every section will tie asked to pledge Itself to keep In re pair its best roads during a period of at least three months in the yenr. According to the plans as already outlined, the motorist coming to Col orado for the summer will know liat here he will find good roads, that he will see the grandest scenery tho state affords, that tn every district he will find headquarters for autolsts whore the hotels and local attractions wl'l be pointed out to him, and' wheM, II he so desires, he can secure an escort who will accompany him to the ad joining district where a similar escort will be prepared to act as guide. Forty thousand copies of the guide book will be published this year n' a cost of $7,000, and distributed over the country. To help defray the cost of publication and distribution the slate Immigration bureau will con tribute $500, the ltocky Mountain Highway association $300 and the city of Denver $500.

ARM DENOUNCED IN MYSTERIOUS C TO GO BUT FARMERS BELOW HUGE STRUCTURE ARE SAFE Tremendous Mass of Masonry to Be Solid As Rock of Gibral tar; How $12,000,000 Cost Will Be Paid. (Special rorrmpondeae la Morning Journal Las Cruces, N. M May 10. Tues day, May 9, the El Paso chamber of commerce and the Mesilla Valley chamber of commerce ran a Joint excursion to the great Elephant Butte dam, 117 miles north of EI Paso. Some 250 ot the moM Influential and pro gressive business men of the Mesilla and El Paso valleys went on this ex cursion. The train left El Paso shortly after 8 o'clock and picked up passengers all along the route. There are now 400 men actually en gaged In excavating for this great dam. High water has retarded the excavating work lately, but other phases ot the work have gone on Just the same. Considerable time has been devoted to the enormous amount of preliminary work that had to be done before actual construction on the dam could be started. A branch railroad was constructed, from Engle to the dam; numerous wagon roads were built; a Btuall village for hous ing and caring for the employes has been erected -and other things that hove required much valuable time. With all this preliminary work dis posed of the engineers In charge of the work have started on the real work of constructing the dam tn dead earnest. This will be the largest artificial lake in the world. It will be forty five miles long, with a mean width of sixth miles. Tills enormous body of water will submerge 40,000 acres and have a capacity of 2,000,000 acre feet. It wili make the Croton reservoir louk like a mill pond and hold twice the amount of tho great Assouan dam of Egypt. A few people are afraid to live be low this monstrous body of water. The English company went so far ua to state that the dam was very unsafe and unreliable. The engineers who have charge of this work gained their positions through competition and are capublu of selecting a site and con structing a wall equal, if need be, to a mountain. The surrounding moun tains are pructicalty solid stono. The spillway will be X00 foet long, sq there will be no poKslhlo way for the escap ing water to affect the foundation. Tin re will bo 5,000,000 barrels of El I'asn cement used In the wall, and A laro cable, amhorod to a mountain on each tnd, will help support the weight. Anyone living below the dam when It Is completed can go to bed at night as safe us those who live above It. Who Will Pay the BUI Homescckers and land buyers every where arc pouring In questions about "who will pay tho bill?" This great project will cost nearly $12,000,000, and the money must como from some where. Thero nre 110,000 acres In Now Mexico, nearly all In tho Mesilla valley), 45,000 acres In the west cor ner of Texas, and 25,000 acres In Chi huahua, Mexico, an provided In a re cent treaty with the republic of Mex ico, wherein the United States guar anteed tho delivery of 60,000 acre feet of water In reparation for tho T.iextcan loss of IMo (irnnde water formerly utilized. Uncle Sam mado the Mexico treaty and will no doubt live up to his agreement. He expects to have all such outlays finally homo by the peo ple benefited, and In this case the following method will ho used: For ten years, beginning with the year the first crop Is ruined with water supplied through this system, an annual as sessment of $4 per acre Is to bo levied, so that nt the end of that period the project will bo owned by the people, The management will he placed In their own hands and the administra tive officers elected by them. Of course tho government will exercls official control to the extent of seeing that the agreement with Mexico 11 kept Inviolate. Can the farmer pay $1 per acre fol (en years and make anything on the Investment? Ycb. Yes. Lands In the Meslll.i valley are worth from $50 to $200 per acre. Under tho present Irrigation system the average return is $25 per acre net. Nearly every year tho water supply runs short about July, and all the crops that ma- tare later than that time aro dam aged. Under the Elephant Hutte dam system there will never be a crop failure from water shortage, and there Is every reason to expect that the lands will Increase their yield 50 ner cent. This being the case, the farmer's $4 will produce $10 or $15, besides enhancing tho value of his land. In addition to the larger and more certain yield, the farmers will be stockholders In the dam, If pres ent plans are carried out, tho water users will generate enough eloetric power to pay for the entire upkeep of tho system. When the great dam Is completed the citizens of these valleys will be the most favored people In tho west. Imagine one man standing on this great dam 200 feet above tho ground. Ho pulls a lever and fills all the can sis and ditches below with water, and 10,000 farmers o out In the morning and pull 10,000 levers and let this water (muddy water that carries 1.8 per cent of sediment) onto the crops ot alfalfa, corn, wheat, cantaloupes and orchards.
