SHE IS CHEERED BY
THE GALLERY CROWDS
George Reiterates That He
Will. Adhere to His Pro
gram of Letting Her Take
the iOath of Office
Washington, Nov. 20. Georgia's
"grand old lady," Mrs. V. H. Fel
ton, first woman senator, was the
Btar member of tho cast in the
opening scene today of tho conven
ing of congress. Her effort to be
sworn in and Bit for . day was
forced over until tomorrow but In
all other respects she enjoyed n
thrilling debut as tho congressional
curtain was raised. And there was
good prospect tomglu that success
would crown her hope of taking
the oath tomorrow and becoming
" the first woman senator in fact as
well as by name, if only for a day.
The 87-year-old woman, a breath
of "lavender ana lace from the
old south," today was all but an
actual senator, occupying a seat
on the senate floor for hours,
where she was cheered by the gal
lery crowds and was the object of
congratulations by senators, repre
sentatives and officials who throng
ed about her informal leceptions.
ivied and Photographed
She was feted also by crowds
about the seriate and was photo
graphed and dined. Tired, but
huppyj tonight she was prepared
to renew tomorrow her plea for
on official place in tho senate.
, Of all senators, past, present or
future, Mrs. Felton as tho first to
appear today on the floor. Ac
companied by former Senator
Hoke Smith of Georgia, and wear
ing a black bonnet, fur coat and
white gloves, she arrived more than
an hour before the noon conven
ing hours. Soon she was "at
home," hanging up her bonnet and
coat in the democratic cloak room.
Hhaking out her silk dcss and lace
collar, she was given an absent i
senator's chair along side Senator
Harris, democrat, Georgia, and was
the cynosure of all eyes and the
lodestone of arriving senators, who
hastened to shake her hand and
offer best wishes. ....
Gallery Crowds Cheer.
Gallery crowds, largely com
posed of women overflowing into
tho 'halls, cheered and applauded
tho white haired woman, as, short
ly before the senate convened, she
was escorted to an ante-room to
receive a huge bouquet of 87 red
roses. Again the crowd broke into
a noisy demonstration ns she re
turned to her seat, where she re
mained through the brief session,
watching each ' move intently
through her gold spectacles.
Clasped in her lap, rolled in brown
paper, she held her commission, as
senator, received two months ago
by appointment upon tho death
02 Senator Thomas K. Watson.
All Pay Tr-.huto to Her.
'All in the senate puld tribute to
the firet woman member. She
was received by Vice President
Coolidge and nearly all senators,
republicans and democrats, as well
as officials and pages.
No disappointment wan mani
fested by Mrs. Felton when told
that no new senators could he
sworn in today, she apparently
nrrasuing aulckly what many vete
van lender for several days had
forgotten that the senate had to be
officially notified of tno cieaui or
a., senator before- his successor
could be received. And In accord
ance with unbroken precedent the
ftenata adiourned immediately out
of respect when informed of the
death of Senator Watson, putting
over the reception of all new sena
tor until tomorrow. Besides Mrs.
"Felton. awaiting to be sworn in
was her successor, Walter F
George, elected November T, and
KAvftr.il others.
Mr. George tonight reiterated
that he would adhere to his pro
gram of trlvine Mrs. Felton an op
portunity to be sworn in and sit
for a day. Although armed with
credentials and a commission su
perceding Mrs. Felton, ho planned
to defer their presentation ,uuin
TVortnusdav. Sennte leaders saiu
with the prospect, that no objec
tion tn this urogram would be or
fered, it appeared that Mrs.
ppltnn would be allowed to take
Vin nnth tomorrow and retire on
Wednesday, when Mr. George
would appear officially.

CUT IS MADE III
TAX BURDEN IN
STAH 1922
Total Will Be Reduced Ap
proximately Two Million
Dollars as Compared
With the Year 1921
Special io Tba Journal.
Santa Fe, Nov. SO. The burden
of taxation in New Mexico, for the
year 1922, will be reduced approx
imately $2,000,000, as compared
with the year 1921, it was an
nounced bji the state tax commis
sion today. Tills extraordinary
saving will be due, not only to tho
reduction in assessed valuations,
but also to tho fact that expenses
are being pared down, making pos
sible a substantial cut in tax levies.
Tax levies havo been fixed by
tho commission, and are being cer
tified for all the counties except
Guadalupe, Harding, Hio Arriba
and Santa Fe. The four counties
last named have not yet submitted
their rolls, a reassessment of all
valuations has been ordered by the
commission for Guadalupe county,
and is now being made.
Getting the property on the tax
rolls at its real value is the most
difficult and important problem
confronting tax officials and the
taxpayers, in tho opinion of J. L.
Saint, chief tax commissioner.
"Tho tax levies, which, we are
now certifying for the year 192 2.
are materially lower than those for
last year. If we could get all the
property In the state on the tax
rolls nt its actual value, we would
be able to reduce the new levies
about 40 per cent," Mr. Saint said.
A striking example of what it
has been possible to do in tho mat
ter of reducing expenses, is found
in tho county of utcro. In spite
of a loss of more than $1,000,000
in valuation, the total levy for
state and county purposes is 17. "4
mills, as compared with 27.10
mills for last year.
Ileal Kslute I'ndevelopcd
How real estate la being under
valued for taxation is shown In
B" rveys which have been made by
field representatives of the tax
commission, and tax experts of four
railroad companies.
The El Paso and Southwestern
system made the survey covering
tiio counties of Dona Ana, Hidalgo,
Lincoln, Otero and Quay. This
survey shows the real estate on the
tax rolls is assessed nt less than 50
per cent of its actual value, as in
dicated by sale and loan transac
tions. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa
Fe surveyed the counties of Her
nalillo, Curry, Gun'd.tlupo. Roose

Governor Groesbeck Is Con
sidering the Senatorial
Qualifications of at Least
a Dozen Men
Detroit, Mich., Nov. 20. Sena
torial qualifications of no fewer
than a dozen men prominent in the
public life of Michigan were being
scanned today by Governor Alex.
J. Groesbeck, seeking a successor
to Truman H. Newberry, who Sun
day tendered his resignation as
senator from this state.
The governor n lanwhlle an
nounced that he Intended to with
hold a decision until nil Interested
parties have had nn opportunity
to be heard and that he did not
propose to have Michigan repre
sented In the upper house of con
gress by a "figurehead." In these
words the governor took occasion
to put at rest reports that he might
appoint some one who could be
counted upon not to seek re-elec
tion In 1924, so thnt the chief exe-
cutive himself could make the race
for senatorial honor.
Although tho governor declined
to even intimate who had been un
der consideration already for Mr.
Newberry's seat, the names most
prominently heard today were
those of Charles B. Warren, nl
present American ambassador to
Japan former Senator William A1
den Pmlth of Grand Rapids: W. W
Potter, state fuel administrator,
and John S. Hnggertj;. Wayne
county republican lender. Later
today another name was advanced
thnt of Marion Leroy Burton.
President of the University of
Michigan. Mayor James Gotizens
of Pelrnit also was drawn Into the
speculation today.
NEWBERRY TQGA
WON'T BE GIN
TO FIGUREHEAD
IS
OBLIGATED TQ
Senator Bursum Says It
Must Aid Rio Grande Re
clamation Under Terms
Guadalupe-Hidalgo Pact
Under the guarantees of the
treaty of Guadalupe-Hidago, the
government of the United States is
obligated to deliver to tho owners
of water rights recognized ' under
that agreement, sufficient water
in the bed of the Lio Grande river
to supply all of those rights.
The obligation is fully as great
as that embodied in tho special
treaty with Mexico by which tho
United Slates agrees to deliver an
nually to tho people of Mexico,
without charge, one million feet of
water in the bed of tho Rio Grand
river for irrigation use. It appli
to New Mexico as well as '
Mexico.
This is tho opinion of United
State Senator II. O. Bursum of
New Mexico. The senator believes
that this fact may result In im
portant government action in the
reclamation of the Uio Grande val
ley in this state. As representative
of New Mexico, he Is Interesting
himself In the reclamation project,
which is one of great importance
in the development of the state.
Tho senator said last night:
"The latest thougnt with refer
ence to the control of rivers is that
tho government should construct
flood control dams In order to pre
vent destruction of property, and
also to keep a continuous flow in
the river beds of htrenms that are
International in character nnd
which incur international obliga
tions. "In this connection, if this policy
Is carried out. it will require at
least two flood control dams on
tho Upper liio Grande river near
the Colorado line. These dar.ir
will have the effect of storing flood
water so as to keep n permanent
flow in dry times. If this were
done by government expense, it
would greatly facilitate the proo- j
lem of reclaiming the Hio Grande
Valley and would lessen the bur- '
den of charge upon the lands re- ;
claimed. At the same time, i' '
would not mike an unreasonable
demand upon the government.
"In tho ease of the Rio Grande, 1
tho government by special treaty
is obligated to dellve' free of j
chnrge annually one million acre i
feet of water hi the bed of the
river for use on Mexican soli. Prac
tically all of the lands embraced
in the P.io Grande valley were en- :
titled to priority ri-rl.ts and o-."ner
ship of water si'mu'lNneonsly with
those of Mexico, ami the citizens of
Mexico who owned these lands
prior to aefiuisitlon by the United
Slates of the terrl'ory now em
braced in the state, of New Mexico
and who became citizens by virtue
of the treaty of Ouadahipe-Hidalgo
were guaranteed by the govern
ment the integrity of all their
rights, which Included, of couis''.
the waters from the Rio (Irande
for use in the irrigation of lands.
"Thereafter, tho water was di
verted for the reclamation of new
lands on the upper Hio Grande.
The waler in this part of the val
ley of the Kio Grande had failed
to furnish an adequate supply. The
stream can only be maintained per
petually by means of permanent
control dams. In view of the con
ditions of the treaty ol Guadalupe
Hidalgo, I conclude that it is us
much the duty of the rcovernment
to accommodate the citizens of this
state who now own th-ise, lands and
water rights and who are tho sue
citssors of those who owned them
at the time of the signing of the
treaty, as it is to deliver one mil
lion acre feet of water annually to
the citizens of Mexico under the
provisions of the special treaty
made many years later. There
fore, it is reasonable to expect and
to demand that the government of
tho United States take the neces
sary steps to deliver all the water
covered by the rights recognized
by the treaty of Guadalupe Hi
dalgo, so that it may be put to
beneficial use for the reclamation
of the Hio Gr.indo valley in' the
state of New Mexico."

that the board, having fixed wag

was also urged on tho ground that
the papers had not been filed in
