The association reaches from tho Canadian river to Kurt Worth, and Includes all the editors In that ter ritory, on tho Kanta Fo, Roc It Inland and Denver roads. The ut tendance was not large, becaiiHO of tho diffi culty of reiichlnK the convention town from the extreme ends of the district. While waiting for the change In railroads In Amnrlllo, tho visiting editors were entertained by an automobile ride ubout tho city, and were met here by a reception committer of Mayor DcLay and Judge Lancaster and Mr. J. M. Shn fer, editor of the Plainview Herald, and his wife, who came to accom pany the editors and their wives to the beautiful little city of Plain view. Tho members of tho association which Is the Northwest Texas Press association, had each received a tick et, through The con ttf r: of Mr. Av ery Tnrnoi), of the Banta Fe railroad, from. ArnMillo. ' to 'Plainview. and also inver the other linrs asldo from tho Santa Fo, from their officers. Mr. Turner nJ Mr. Ptowell, his as sistant, accompanied tho special train, which wh pluced at the dis posal of tho editors, In Mr. Turner's sped s car, and tho train left Ama- rlllo at a llttlo after 1 o'clock, and the run to Plainview was made in a little over Ihreo hours, arriving at its destination between 4 and 5 o'clock, From his special car, Mr. Turner showed tho editors und their ladies the new work beln done on the San ta Fo, near Canyon City. On eighty mlleg of the road near there, a mil lion and a half dollars are being ex ponded to cutting down grades, niuk Ing fills, straightening out kinks and curves, laying new ties and the heaviest Iron, and making the road bed ono to handle the large through California business of this company. A quarter of a million dollars of this sum Is being expended on the heavy work In tho canyon. Solid new cul verts and stone abutments or Iron bridges have been put In, and the work Is most substantial, and wna viewed with Interest by the editors. One of the most beautiful farm scenes witnessed on tho route, was the beautiful valley of the canyon, which Is all In cultivation, much of It in alfalfa, which was being har vested. Fine fields of wheat and oats were also wltnossod and farm ers were In the field working their corn or preparing the ground for later crops, and everything looked fine. The rldo to Plainview from Can yon was enjoyed. The farm land Is fine and reasonably well occupied. Many of the fields of corn were wit nessed, varying in height from knee to waist high, and of a good color, & Trust Co. FRANK B. SALTER, Cashier. CIIAS. T.

Tho towu of Happy was noticed to be a thriving new distrib uting point, with a bright future be fore It. Tulla is a fine llttlo city, tho county sent of Swisher county, with fine streets, and buildings above the ordinary, nnd It shows up finely from tho railway. When Iho editors arrived at Plnln vlew, it seemed that the entire city was out at tho depot, as a reception committee to meet them, and car riages and automobiles conveyed tho visitors directly to tho convention hall, owing to the lateness of tho hour. Here Mr. Armstrong assigned (hem to quarters. Tho citizens of Plainview had thrown their elegant homes open to tlin editors, and they were assigned singly or In pairs as desired to Iho homes of Plainview, where they were cared for during the convention like klns, queens and princesses. Nothing was . too good for them. s- The Convention was organized by the selection of Mr. A. W. Johnson as president and Edgar Proctor, of the lloyd Index, as secretary, and these gentlemen served through the convention. It was anuouneed that there would be a reception at the residence of Dr. J. li. .Wayland and the convention adjourned to attend the reception In the evening. After supper, a heavy ruin and hall Btorni occupied tho bo irds. ;. until it was thought the reception would bo call ed off, and few attended, although the doctor kept, open honee for tho vitiltlng editors and citizens and qulto a number amended. Uy the way, there had been plenty of rain In that locality, and It rained easily several times during tho three days the con vention was there, though not to Interfere with the meetings. It Is supposed that the weather clerk has special supervision over that beauti ful city, and country surrounding, and gives It water whenever it is needed. Tho sessions of the morning of Wednesday were held In the .skating rink but the later sessions were held In the Methodist church, as the link had to be prepared for tho banquet of Wednesday night. The uesslons were all enjoyable, and the discus sions entered into with a zest which showed the Interest the members had In the questions prepared for discussion, and everyone present was helped by the sessions, and the boys who were too busy to bo present woro the losers. Wednesday evening the banquet was held in the skating rink, and plates were laid for 1T) to bo seated at the tables. There were 110 seat ed, and it was one of the most, en joyable banquets tho editor of the Panhandle ever attended. It was by ticket of admission, and In addition to the visiting editors and their wives, and the Indies without has bands, the best citizens Of Plainview were present. Tho program as pre viously published In these columns was carried out, and the responses to toasts were all of a high order, and greatly enjoyed. The menu was elegant. Plainview had promised that tho crop of chickens which abounds in that locality would bo harvested, and we know It must have been, for It was in evidence at tho banquet, and at all tho meals ate by tho editors while In the city. The next, morning tho remainder of the program was carried out, and the election of officers followed, with the result heretofore published and though Amaiillo wai an applicant for the next meeting, Clarendon cap tured the plum. Aftor the ad journment of the association, the ed itors' were taken about the city nnd country for nn automobile ride, and witnessed the finest, country lying In the plains, with fine homes, and good crops, and. at 2 o'clock they took the train for Amarillo and their hohies assuring tho Plalnvlewlies that the visit at their fine little city and its hospitable people would al ways occupy a pleasant spot in the hearts of everyone who had attended. Plainview la Bltuated In the shal low water belt of the South Central plains. Water la reached In abund ance at from twenty to forty feet with tlireo dl.'.tlnct veins In that ills lame. All of the older homes hav their windmills, and have planted or chards and shado trees, and shrub bery, and Irrigated them from the windmills, and as a result, there Is much more ih.ide than In any oth city of the panhandle the editor has visited. The city has from 2,H0u to 2,5(10 Inhabitants, and has dmibli In population within the past six months, and U rapidly growing. She has six lumber yards, all doing a flno business, several banks, with as larg a combined deposit as Amarillo, She supplies lumber and other build Ing material to the plains for l BO miles south of the city, and Is a live business place. It wad tho editor's lot to bo as signed to the homo of Mr. and Mrs W. I). Joiner, In the northwest por Hon of the city. These good people are former Mlssouiians, having been In college work for many years. Mr Joiner Is secretary of the Hale County Land & Abstract Co., located In the Plainview Dank & Trust Co building, nnd Is a very fine, genial gentleman to meet. Mrs. Jolnor a refined and educated lady, and a most agreeable entertainer. Mr. nnd Mrs. Joiner have a most beautiful home elegantly furnished, and they surely made the stay of the editor of the.

He has been on the executive committee of the state association ever since and a delegate to tho na tlonal association since 1897, and treasurer of (tie Northwest Texas Press association for ten or eleven years. At this, the nineteenth ses slon of the association, he was again chosen for president. Ho is an en thuslastlc member o'f tho association and a good worker, and has done much for Iho association, and his election at this time, wns a great compliment. We give a picture of Mr. Johnson herewith. In the course of the descusslon of the various questions before the as sociation, several resolutions were A. W. JOHNSON, I'roiltlcnt Northwest Texas Association. Tress introduced and adopted. One on the anti-pass bill, and 'the unwarranted interference of tho legislators with i"!ie private right of contract between the railroads and the newspapers. Another regarding the government going Into tho printing business jis a competitor of tho newspapers, and another regarding the price of sub scription of the country weeklies, all of which resolutions the Panhandle endorses, nnd stall be governed by. Resolutions which in part express the feelings of every member of the association toward plainview and Its excellent people, were adopted, but every editor who enjoyed the open hearted hospitality of Plain view will agree that It was the hest that could be supplied, and set a mark for nil other entertaining cities In the future to strive for. The resolutions adopted, were as follows: Committee Report on Resolutions. We your committee on resolutions report as follows: That we aro pleased to most hear tily thank tho citizens of Plainview in behalf of tho association for their hearty welcome and untiring efforts to add to our pleasure and so hoB- pltably entertaining tho members in their homes, and also thank Dr. J.

Browning held, Tues day and Wednesday of this week, the first term of court in the county of Parmer. The county has heretofore been attached to Deaf Smith for le gal purposes and Its business has been transacted from Hereford. Tho growth of the towns and the settle ment of the country has given it In creased Importance and a few months ago It voted for organization as an Independent county. The race for the county site mado an Interesting contest and at first It was thought that eit?r Iiovina or Farwell would get the location. A "dark horse" In the shape of "Model-farm was brought forward shortly before the election and on account of Its more central location and.also on account of the fight be tween the other points It secured a sufficient number of votes to get the county seat. Parmerton Is the name which has been given the place now instead of "Model-farm." Parmerton Is at the Campbell model farm and Is two miles east of Bovlna. At present It has little more than a site for a town but it Is surrounded by a rich and rapidly developing country and will undoubtedly make a prosperous town. The term of court which put Par mer county and Parmerton officially on the list, had little business to transact. Several eases had been transferred back from Deaf Smith county and then were a few other civil cases'. The first grand jury for the county was empannelled, was In session a few hours and adjourned without finding any bills. The ses sions of the court were held in a temporary offlco which is about tho only building on the town property now. Besides Judge Browning and Dis trict Attorney Bishop, other mem bers of the bar who attended the first session of tho court were John P. Slayton and George W. Barcus, of Hereford; Maddrey, Turner and Boyce, of Amarillo. TEXIGO CONTRIBUTES TWO GAMES Texlco contributed two games to Amarlllo's list of victories in tho events Saturday and yesterday. Tho border city bunch has Borne good men in the line up and with the or ganization of the Amarillo team as It was shaped up In the two games makes an Interesting contest but there are several weak polntB and at times the playing was ragged. "Cap" Hutchinson did tho deliv ery work for Amarillo Saturday and the visitors got a few scattered bits but failed to connect them Into a run. Gallegos, the Mexican t wirier, for the visitors pitched almost an airtight game but Weber got a clean single that gave Amarillo the win ning score. Weber was In tho box yesterday for the locals and the visitors real ized on their opportunities to the extent of one run. After that they Amarillo fared better In the matter of hits yesterday and scored five runs. The two teams play the third game of the ser.es this afternoon. Amiuillo Against the Cowboys. Wednesday afternoon and Thurs day for a Fourth of July attraction, tho Cowboys returning from their victorious tour through the ..orth, will appear in Amarillo for three - .1 games. The Canyon team la expect ed to arrive here Wednesday and will play that afternoon. On tho Fourth Captain Hutchinson has arranged for a morning game ut 10 a. m. and an afternoon game with the Cowboys. It needs no explanation to insur that these game will bo interesting contests. For the line up In these games Captain Hutchinson has con siderably strengthened tho recent, organization. Gallegns, tho star Mexican pitcher, who has been icm with the Texlco bunch, has been signed with Amarillo and will ap pear In the Canyon games.

Dr. Wilson reports a widespread and Increasing interest in Texas throughout the Eastern states. Tho Bankers' excursion left considerable Texas literature in "Its wake, and people are beginning to sit up and take notice of the great Kmplro' of the Southwest. It is only tho ques tion of a llttlo ilme, Dr. - Wilson thinks, when Texas will bo drawing on these states for tho majority of her Immigrants as they iind they :an make more money with less work In Texas-than anywhere else in the union. Dr. Wilson will deliver a large number of lectures throughout the state during the next few weeks, Jn tho Interest of the Five Million club. He captured El Paso Borne weeks ago, where he was the moans of se curing a hundred subscriptions and there is no reason why this should not be done proportionately In other communities.
