There is quite an effort on foot to induce President McKinley to appoint Charles Daws, of Evanston, 111., to some other honor able office and when the present term of Comptroller-Eckels shall have expir ed to reappoint him, instead of making a change.

To the joint commission between the United States and Mjxico, having under consideration the equitable distribution of the waters of the Rio Grande and the proposed Interna tional Dam above El Paso, Texas. Gentlemen We the undersigned, president and directors of the Rio Grande Dam and Irrigation company, having been informed that the respec tive governments of the United States and Mexico are under a misapprehen sion as to the object of our enterprise and the claims we assert under our charter, in so far that it has been al leged that we claim the exclusive rignc to control all the waters of the Rio Grande at the point, Elephant Butte, New Mexico, where we propose to build our dam and reservoir, do hereby de clare for the information of the two governments before mentioned, and such action as they may deem proper relative thereto, that we do not claim the right to use all the water of the Rio Grande, but on the contrary recog nize the prior right of the people of the valley of El Paso, Mexican as well as American, to a prior use of said. waters ancl that we will use all reason able efforts to procure by territorial legislation of New Mexico, or federal legislation of the United States, or in ternational treaty between the United States and Mexico so as to secure as asrainst us the trior right of the people of the valley of El Paso, both Mexican and American, to the perpetual use of a sufficiency of water to fill yearly tha proposed reservoir contemplated in ine international dam above El Paso, and to provide a legal and practical remedy as against us, for both the people of the valley of El Paso in Mexico and the valley of El Paso in Texas as against " us should our company ever attempt to withhold water so as to prevent a sul- ficiency for the international dam and reservoir. In order that each of our projects m-y to on uctrammeled by the other, we request that you lay tnts communi cation before yo'ir re-pective govern- nm's at as ea lv a da'e as p"-acticab e. We are, g. ntiemen, very respectfully ours. The Ergl'sh company "dcl:red with ta.k.'' Ft t- e ie son that they Co :nt cons d r any sec aeti -n on th ir pa-t nerefsiry. 1 rey claim mere is nouon wa.;er in the Kio oraoue lor four such r s -rvoirs as th;y propose o b i Id. and that t,n- international eopl.-i are retd'pssy alarmed. Fui tnerm-if tr.e international dam s not bunt thev prcp.o-e to put in a dam at El Pa?o th-'i selves and run a anal down the Texas sid" as far as Fort Quitman, to tnat in either event th-. valley of the Rio Grande will be ir- . rigated. Moreover, an arrangement wi 1 be made, if possible, with the Mexicans ro that they can secure part terest in the waters stored by the lower dam. . Chief Engineir P. E. Harrounof the Homestead Irrigation company of Santa Fe says it is not so much a ques tion of water as it is a question of 6ilt. He is building a series of storage dams along the Rio Puerco, and savs he has solved the silt problem as far as his en terprises are concerned by building in tercepting dams in the river which are used as settling basins, the clear water being diverted into mountain side can yons through high line ditches. Mr. Harroun thinks a good deal as Engi neer Campbell does about the ability of the river to fill the reservoirs. Mr. Campbell does not anticipate any trouble from silt. He thinks it may in time form a bar at the upper end of the lake; but t he silt will deposit up stream instead of ruling in the res ervoir; and the deposit anyway will ha nothing to get alarmed over. The English company folks say they have only the friendliest feeling for the in ternational dam project, and would like to see it go ahead. Evening serenading has begun with the advent of May, and several groups of "young men were out with their mandolirs Saturday night tinkling sweet music to their dulcineas del Toboso, ar.d occasioning more or less corrosive remarks from the heads of households who wanted to sleep.
