The movement is immensely important, for it suggests the only practical way of meeting this problem except through the national bureau of immigration. Un der our peculiar labor laws it is impossible for workers to be brought into this country with specific employment promised them. We deliberately encourage the coming of men without work or prospects of employment. The average immigrant brings but a small sum of money with him and naturally his first instinct is to settle in the great centers of population at the seaports and try to build up his fortunes with the least possible delay. The spell of the big cities can never be broken for the majority of these people. Atihough they come from small villages or farms and have never been used to great cities, nevertheless the influence of a city like New York seems to bind them about and make it impossible to divert them to wider fields of opportunity where the need, for human labor is greater and the rewards proportionate to the results achieved. The railroads are beginning to take a broad view of this whole problem, and they see it is to their advantage to encourage in every possible way the building up and populating of the sections of this country distant from the seaports. After all, it is people that make any country, and every family of producers along a railroad is a tangible asset insuring a steady income to the road. This movement begun by the railroads should have the heartiest cooperation ef the United States government The scope of the national bureau of immigKi tion should be sufficiently widened to enable it to carr on a broad campaign of advertising, a campaign of education that would result gradualism sending the stream of immigrants away from the chief cities into the undeveloped regions of the south and west, where labor is at a premium and where opportunities for self advancement are limitless. This is a legitimate function of government and the whole nation would be benefited by the change. Within 50 miles of the center of Manhattan island dwell 7,500,000 people, or one-twelfth of the population of the United States. This is an average of 1000 persons to the square mile; if El Paso county were populated to the same degree of density, El Paso county would have 10,000,00d population. There are many counties in Texas having less than an average of one person to a souare mile. These figures show the possibilities of the job the railroad executives have set for ! themselves.

Under the former plan it would have been necessary to excavate to bed rock about 70 feet in depth a ditch 200 feet wide and 400 feet long before beginning work on the foundations of the dam. This foundation work alone would iave taken about two years and required the expenditure of $3,500,000 before the dam proper could begin. Under the revised plan, it will be possible to excavate only a narrow ditch across the river and build a low dam, to reach about 40 feet above the bed of the river. The water 'once being stopped and the underflow controled, it would then be possible to make the additional excavations on the down stream side of the dam and finish the big dam more leisurely with no danger of ruination in time of flood. The reclamation service estimates that the smaller dam cpuld be finished by the end of next year and the stored water in moderate quantity be made available for the farmers in this valley, if $1,500,000 in addition to the funds now in hand could be made available for expenditure between now and July 1, 1911. With the assurance that $750,000 would be available during the latter half of this calendar year, and $750,000 would' become available during the next calendar year, the reclamation service estimates that this initial portion of the big dam could be made ready for use In the time stated- There is money in the reclamation fund to do this work if the secretary of the interior, Mr. BaUinger, wills it. The secretary has the sole power and is solely responsible, and all that is necessary is for him to affix his signature to an srder apportioning this additional $1,500,000 to the liio Grande project. Rapid progress of work on the Rio Grande project right now depends more than all else upon the activity of Mexico in requesting that the treaty obligations be earned out to the letter without further delay. A strong delegation from this ralley to Washington within the next month or two might also help greatly. o - France is already beginning to be afraid of her airships.

To day Everyone in this section is talking of the copper boom that is bound to result from the erection of the new smelter here. Col. Masten, chief engineer of the Gulf, Rio Grande and Pacific railroad, and Col. R. M. Moore, ex-special agent of the treasury department, left this morning in a wagon for a long ride from Juarez to Batopilas, over the pro posed route of the new railroad. The United States court docket will show about 25 civil and 50 criminal cases for judge Maxey to dispose of, when he convenes court April 6. W. A. Morehouse plans to erect a modern office building on the corner of Oregon and Texas streets, to cost S20.000. The building will have a front age of 100 feef on Texas street and 92 feet on Oregon street- The collector's deputies seized" 63 head of cattle at Deming yesterday and six head at Ysleta this morning. The cattle had been smuggled over and the owners are unknown. F. F. Van Vleit of Monterey, Mex., is being sought by the police. The man ! secured a letter of introduction from consul Buford of Juarez to the proprie tor of the Tendome hotel on this side and then forged the consul's name to a j ?50 check on which he secured S5. Tom Karr is building a two story brick house on East San Antonio street, and Cristobal Aguirre is building a S200 adobe residence on the corner of El Paso and Second streets. Mrs. Murtell, who conducts a rooming house on North Oregon street, was dis turbed late last night by a burgler. She discovered a Mexican with his arms filled with men's clothinsr.

It is practically the only royal institu5 tion of France which survived the revo lution. Napoleon gave it a new home and revived it by his decree from Mos cow in 1S12. Its handsome theater, a treasure house of records, was burned in 1900, but was rebuilt with a govern menq appropriation. How It Is Governed. It is governed in a most pecuiar man ner. In fact, no one seems-to know exactly what Its code is. Its laws are rather a common law, which has grown out of tradition. When a promising young student graduates from the Con servatory, the national training school for actors, he may be employed at a yearly salary to play oiinor roles. After he has bc-en In the employ of the thea ter for several years, shows aptitude, and tnero is finally a vacancy either through death or retirement, he Is elect ed one of the "associates." As an as sociate he snares in the annual profits of the istitution, whicn are sometimes considerable, as the institution receives an annual subsidy of 50,000 francs from the government, and in addition re ceives the theater free of rent and taxes. One of the best features of the or ganization Is that actors cast for minor parts do not quit in disgust. They know that while thev may be playing the parts of -maids and men servants to- I day, tomorrow they may be cast for principal roles, as one play is seldom given more than two uaj-s in succes sion, and three days a week for the same play is the limit. By this means of rotating the actors and actresses the ensemble excelence of the casts""ls made easily the finest in the world. One reason why actors do not com plain of appearing in minor roles is that they are given a small extra stipend for every performance in which they take part. There is no laziness or "tein permental" illness there. When an actor has grown too old to do capable work he is retired on a pension. In the di vision of the annual profits the actors are ranked according to length of ser vice. Antipathy to Stars. One of the features of the Comedie Francaise which strikes Americans most forcibly is its uncompromising attitude in opposition to the "starring" system, which Is such an integral part of the stage In both England and America. And this antipathy to "stars" is well founded at the comedie. for its one experience- in that direction was fraught with much artistic and financial dis tress. The single exception was the great Rachel, who packed the theater to the doors every nijht that she appeared, bringing into the box office 10,000 francs upon each appearance all of which went into her own pockets. Qn the nights wliich the star did not ap pear, however, the theater was practical ly empty. On one occasion It is re corded that "Tartufe" and "Legacy," the two, masterpieces of Moliere and Mari vaux, were produced without the star and the receipts were 67 francs or $13.40. But Rachel had been elevated to the position of a star because inj:he opinion of her associates she was the greatest actress in the history of thj world. One oritic, Mr. Lewes, described her thus: "Rachel was the panther of the stage; with a panther's terrible beauty and un dulating grace, she moved and stood, glared and sprang." Discovered by American. It is not generally Known that the honor of discovering this great artiste belongs to an American. When Edwin Forrest was In Europe in 1S34 and 1835 he was asked by the manager of a Paris' theater to give his opinion of an actor of whom the manager expected much. At the conclusion of the performance Forrest said he thought the man only mediocre, but he added, "But that Jew ish looking girl, that little bag of bones, with the marble face and the flaming eyes nere Is (""loniarai power in her. FAEMIF&TOH PLANS BETTER ROADS parts, yearned win her laurels as a tragedinne, and so she enacted the ,role of Agrippiua in Racine's "Britannicus." At that time Francisque Sarcey, the greatest dramatic critic of France, was living, and in his review a few days later he wrote- "I shall not say that Mme. Plessy is mediocre. With her in telligence, with her natural gifts, with her immense authority over the public, she coulu not in any way be mediocre. She Is not, therefore, mediocrely bad She Is bad to an inespressionable de gree." A few days later he was calling at a friend's house, and seeing Mme. Ples sy in the drawing room, he tried to mide behind a palm, but she came straight toward him. and holding out her hand, said: "You are right; you might have told the truth more amiably, but it was the truth. I shall not again risk myself in a tragic part. I 'thank you." And with a bow, she walked away, leaving Sarcey stupified. Got's First appearance. All celebrities of the comedie have not received adverse criticism with such good grace, however, as, witness the case of M. Got, the immediate predeces sor of the lamented Coquelin, as the head of the national company. Got's first appearance as a member of the company was a pitiful failure, and two Election to Be Held April 5 to Decide the Liquor Question. Farmington, N. M., March 28. Active measures are underway to open a first class public thoroughfare from Farm ington west, down the San Juan river to the "hog back," a distance of some 25 miles. Roads generally In the county are in indifferent condition which, fact brings much complaint from motorists. Miss Hattie Locke, of Fafm'ngton, and Homer Norton, of Antolnto, Colo rado, were married at the latter place. The old Farmington brass band is re organized and rechristened the "1910 band" and starts out with splendid prospects. The Modern Woodmen gave a minstrel show to a packed house. Apricot trees are out in full bloom, while many peach trees are decorated with blossoms. J. C. Strawn, one of the station mas ters long in the service of the L. & R.

On Tuesday, April 5, will be held a city election, the main issue in which will be "wet or dry" and much local Interest is manifested.

The site selected for the new $100,000 hotel is very greatly superior to the old site, because it is on high ground with a wonderful view. An extensive sewerage system is being put in, and sanitary regulations will be strictly enforced during the season. Many new cottages are being built and the old ones repaired and modern ized. The project for a sanatorium for babies is going steadily forward. It would be a good plan both for the higher success of the resort and for the pleasure and profit of El Paso people, if every family having a cottage there would make it a point to spend at least one month at Cloudcroft, even though a trip be taken afterwards to California or the east. Cloudcroft ought to be a sort of summer capital for El Paso, and a few weeks of each summer ought to be spent there, even if the balance of the vacation be taken elsewhere. Cloudcroft belongs to the whole southwest The people of eastern Texas and o Arizona and New Mexico will receive benefit from it, but its chief support sfcemld come from EI Pasoans, for it is in fact our "roof garden."

And it was not long before the "bag of bones" arrived, but there was lots of work before she reached the top. M. Legouve. the author of "Adrienne Le couvreur," relates that on one occasion she worked with him for three hours over the reading of a single line in "Louise de Lignerolles " y Another of the greatest names asso ciated with the Comeddie Francaise was ' days later he read a scathing criticism by Charles Maurice, a ciever free lancer, who, if he were living today, -would be termed a pfess agent of the most vir ulent type. On the night after Got read the ar ticle he met Maurice and the latter said: "Well, young man. why have you not been to see me? In France, it is cus tomary for an artist to call on a writer to thank him for kindly criticism." Got, with the sting of the review still rank ling in his breast, replied: "The fact is, sir, I am poor and I have no money to pay the claque." The journalist never forgave the actor. He was ever after that Got's bitterest enemy. "Divine" Sarah. Another "bag of bones with a Jewish look," who has added, luster to the .comedie Is the incomparable Sarah Bern- narat, whose final enrolment under the banner of the 'Institution was accom plished only after great difficulty. Even the youthful Sarah's education was gained only after many trials, for she was expeled four times from a convent. When she had finished the prescribed course, capturing many prizes, she was undecided whether she wanted to be a nun or an actress. She finally decided on the latter pro fession and entered the conservatory, being engaged at the Theater Francaise In due time, but she was of such an obstreperous disposition that she had to leave after having slapped the face of one of the principal players. She became quite an eccentric personality and acquired a large following In the less Important theaters of Paris. She early showed a remarkable genius for the press agency end of her art, and she was the most talked of woman in Paris, even before she was reeengaged at the comedie, where she won distinc tion in spite of the fact that all the older members were antagonistic to her. She was aided in her fight for pre eminence by the fact that she had an extremely thin figure, while her chief adversary was Inclined toward embon point, which precluded the effective en actment of poetic roles. Coquelin's Work. The last of the really great figures t)f the Comedie Francaise died only a short time ago at the moment when he hoped to achieve Ttis greatest triumph in the title role of Edmond Rostand's latest play, "Chantecler" Coquelin, aine. Coquelin's engagement at the comedie was attended with an unusual incident. After graduating at the Con servatory, with first honor, he was as signed a part in a new play, but his joy was of short duration, for it was soon taken away from him and given i to the son or, an old actor.
