WILL CHECK THE GOVERNMENT Butchers, bakers and candlestick makers to say nothing of bankers, merchants and lawyers will oe snook lng from house to house this week, asking- the inevitable question, "Who lives here and are there any more at home like you?" The volunteer census is about ready to census. A list of the volunteers is being prepared today by the city engi neer's department ith the block assignments described in detail. More enumerators who have not yet volun teered -will be appointed by the general census committee and will be assigned to blocks in which to count the noses of the big folks, litle folks and servants, if any. Chairman Clayton has decided to overcome the modesty of some of the prominent "efts." who have failed to come forward and be counted among the willing workers, by volunteering lot them. The census, like death and taxes, is no respector of persons or personages and neither will be the volunteer census committee. More or less haughty bank ers who have been turning down over drafts for the past week until they feel equal to the task of chief heads man to the king of Siam, will be humbly knocking at front doors and re questing In modest tones for the num ber of occupants living under that par ticular roof. Ministers are to be slmi- J larly assigned. Real estate men will call on their tenants and lawyers will solicit census data from the humblest in their block. But it is all for a greater El Paso as a part of the "count us all" cam paign and dignity sever interferes with El Pasoans when there 4s work to be dono In the cause of civic greatness.

In part, their resolutions recite: "First, That it is not our aim in any manner to hinder or delay the construc tion of said Elephant Butte dam or anv tther government reclamation projectT That we earnestly recommend the con struction and completion of said Ele phant Butte dam. ''Second, That in our opinion chere is no need for the government to reserve all the water for said Elephant Butte project, as there will be plenty of water stored up during the .winter months above said dam to supply all the land lying 'below it for vl year or two at a tame without storing more. "Third. That if the reclamation ser vice of the United States deems it nec essary to Teserve all the waters of the Rio Grande (for said "Elephant Butte dam, then we urge the establishment by the government of power plants at suit able locations north of said Elephant Butte project by Trailding dams and using the waters" of the Rio Grande to furnrjh power to the farmers in the valley north of said dam. thereby recom pensing the people of the upper Rio Grande vallev fcr the -water of which they are unjustly deprived of by the action of the reclamation service of the United Stat ;s- This action on the part of tie ioverament would produce ample water"" ! purposes and at the same time woula not diminish the flow of water in the Rio Grande north of the Elephant Butte dam." MAYBEAY AND GANG -ABE' SENTENCED (Continued From Page One.; about ten years ago exceeded S5.000.000.

"The house will be in order or some body will get hurt," exclaimed the speaker angrily, bringing the gavel down with a resounding whack. "The galleries, which have not been saying a word, will continue that way. Of course the house will preserve order." Texas Matters.

With eyes glowing defiance and voice thun dering at his enemies with all the day's pent up bitterness, speaker Cannon made a vitriolic attack on the "hybrid house majority" at the annual dinner of the Illinois Republican association Saturday nlgh.- His face was worn from the force of the tcrriiic assault made upon him nr.d his oico h.ckcl its old ja ir ness and resonance. He was "Uncle Joe" In fighting trim. A startling statement made by the powers-shorn but defiant speaker was that the Republicans no longer have a majority in the senate. "My God," he cried, with great solemnity, "suppose this 150 pounds of common clay should drop dead tonight, -what would the newspapers and maga zines which make a profession of lying and slandering do then? My daughters, granddaughters, my sonmlaw would ba &orry. jsut tiie balance of the world would not have time to be sorry. There never was a truer word said than, Tet the dead bury its dead,' If that were not I Monday, true, then the world would be one vast house of mourning. "I know people who think they monopolize the wires from the earth up to the great white throne. They don't givo tho majority of us a chance. They have cure-alls, they think God and ono constitute a majority, forgetting that God alone is a majority and can do without their help. "We're thankful for Christian moral ity. Once In a while we find people who have a monopoly of all knowledge and therefore would be Indicted and prosecuted under the Sherman anti trust law. All who disagree with them are an anathema Some Are Cranks. "It's uncomfortable sometimes to live in a government by the people. There will always be some who are feeble minded, abnormal, insane, or to use a shorter and more common word are cranks. But we've got to have them. "There was a new majority made to day, ic consisted of the Democrats and a 15 percent slough from the Republican party. They destroyed the committee on rules. Then what did they do? A resolution was presented declaring the office of speaker vacant. Then what did these men who have been denounc ing my personality, these Simon Pure followers of senator La Follette do? Only eight of them had the courage of their convictions. The re sult was that while I was elected speaker by a majority of 26 last March, they refused to turn me out by a ma jority of 36. ' "That -was the way this Republican slough started out m its new alliance. And the Sunday papers will be out in the morning with stories about the end of Cannonism and czarism and perhaps a few of them will say what I said about the house being simply a govern ment by majorities. Keeps RepEblican Faith. "Thin combination abolished the com mittee on rules, which has after all the power simply to report to the house, al though some seem to think it is like the biblical example of 'let there be light and there was light. Tou in Washing ton know differently but the people In the country apparently believe the up lift magazines and the cowardly mem bers of congress who wrought such havoc today. I am thankful J. belong to the party of Lincoln and Grant and Garfield and Roosevelt and Taft and whenever -any charge is made upon it, whether from pulpit or magazine or Chautauqua circuit I will defend it. I would rather keep the Republican faith and fail than to march with men who would disrupt the Republican party and succeed. "Tho country believes we hav & ma" jorlty of 44 in the house, whereas we have none, nor have we a majority in the senate. But this oews is not given to the country by certain publicists. They suppress it and distort it and talk only about Cannonism and the defeat and rebuke of the czar today. "Some of us pray for the millenium.
