"and I iippreelHte It all the more because It conies from my brother cattlemen. Although 1 live across the imaginary Hup that, makes the difference between Texas and New Mexico, my heart Is f ir Tonus always. I am a Texan. 1 can't help If.

"I nominate for treasurer," said J. If. Avery, in placing the nume of Lee Bivins before the meeting, "a man who Is thoroughly known not only In the Panhandle and in New Mexico but in the entire Southwest. Jfe has boon In the business always and has always done pood for the business." "There's no man more competent," added H. T. Ware, treasurer for sev eral years of the assorlation, In claim. Ing the floor to neeond the nomi nation. "o man can help the asso ciation more If Ii needs help and no man Is more willing to help when he can than Lee Rjvlns. He is a gen tleman, a money-maker, of untiring energy, broad and progressive. As an example of his spirit, he has built a residence here that Is a monument to tliln or any other state and his ranch property near here Is one of the finest that can bn shown. He makes things move along when he takes hold of them." By a unanimous vote Mr. Divlns -as made treasurer.

Judge Willis of Canadian, in a brief nddress which takes place with L. B. Walklns "Ole Brindle" apeech as one of the oratorical events of the convention, thanked Amarillo for the hospitality. "We all like to come to Amarillo," Fnld Mr. Willis. "There's a vlor, and a dash, and a go here that defies description. All the words In th" dictionaries and ency. elopedlas won't describe. Some of the people have been saying- that Ihere Is something about the atmos phere of theso highlands that makes that spirit here. Rut.no chemical analysis can show it and no magnify ing glass disclose It. It's just sim ply Amarillo. There Is a difference bitweu Amarillo and all other cities. Amarillo people know each other and they want to know everybody else. The ma uf the Kast may wrap around hansel fthe luxury of hU around himself the luxury of his tensleil in anyone but me and my chum and my chum's clium and his i hum, us four." but Amarillo shakes hands from Kansas City to the sea, Amarillo Is at home with the grand dukes, and prelates of the cities and is at home from the plains to tho Tfl rifle. What Holds Amarillo? " 'W hat holds up Amarillo?' you will hear II asked? Tho uncon querable will of her people and thn iindoiihtable spirit of her men and women. 'Will there he any fall?' 'Will there be any drop In Interest?' Not so. Amarillo Is destined to go on and go up, as she got the Santa 'o terminal as she got the Rock Island-Choctaw railroad, as she got Ihe union stockyards, as she got her street car line, as she built these churches. These mighty men will keep her up as they have started whether her location is the most for tunate or not. They built Kansas City In n piece of waste laud between the bluffs and river. Fort Worth Is on land nobody would have. So out here on the bald plains. men are building a city. "This Is the spirit of the West and you have entertained us accordingly. When we got here you took our la dies and gave them an automobile ride and you gave them a heautiful reception yesterday." Continuing with a wealth of eloquence, Judge Willis told of the entertainment here, and protested that of course they would come buck hern use they couldn't help It and wonldn't ir they could. The Contest. Then President George Slaughter callpd for nominations for places for the next convention and the contest was on. Judge J. NT. Browning In placing Amarillo In the 'race, said that ho could not say anything better In asking thn visitors to come bark than Judge Wlllla had Just said in J. P. MORGAN'S OFFICE. THE NEW IORK STOCK EXCHANGE. WAIL ST2EET, AMERICA'S FINANCIAL CENTER, WHICH IS TO BE INVESTIGATED, Recent utterances of Trealdent Roosevelt against stock gambling In Wall street and tbe special message, of Got ernor Hughe to tha New York legislature strongly Indicate that the searchlight is soon to b turned on the great financial center. When hla antl raelug Mils were defeated Governor Hughes Issued a pronunclamenbo agalmt atock gambling and called for an investigation that would lead to the prevention of tnegltiiniite atock transact lor s. In the right on the governor antl-raclng measures several senators cited Wall street as a greater gambling menae than tho raco tracks, and this argument seem to have stirred the governor to action against the bucket shops and atock gamblers.

Ware seconded fhls with an invitation to return and Mayor Miller urged the merits of the city. Then Ex-Mayor Hinkle of Ros well placed the valley town In the race in a speech that made every visitor want, to como to Roswell, whether they wanted to vote against Amarillo or not. Mr. Kt-mn of Ros well followed wilh a description of the elaborate entertainment. Roswell was ready to give the visitors and a statement of ndvaniagps to be. derived from the convention mere. Mr. Mc Pomadlo a cowman, of western New Mexico told tho aitdeq strength that the association would gam from placing the next meeting In the val ley town. Then W. B. Slaughter of Dalhart added welgnt. to the move ment by throwing his strenxtn to the valley town's Invitation ana stating that Dalhart would be In the race next year for the convention. Tho discussion had already waxed 'warm before the president put a motion for the vote. The voting finally began a litlle after 12 and continued with the results given above. Later On account of the ballots concluded at fi o'clock Thursday evening, a number of votes on both sides were discarded on technical grounds and Roswell secured conven tion by vote of 54 to 4S.
