Berlin, Germany, May 11. Col. Theo dore Roosevelt, in company of emperor William, today -witnessed a mimic battle in -which 12,000 men of the Ger man military engaged, in the vicinity of Derwirtz. Together they rode over the maneuvering field of somo 20 square miles and observed the working out oV the army problem. The scene of the evolutions -was admirably adapted to bring out the resources of tli2 officers and men. When operations -were completed, all officers above the rank of major -who had taken part in the maneuvers -were assembled on Muehlenberg hill to hear the criticisms of the emperor and the umpires. When the comments had been made by the emperor, in a loud voice he called out: "My friend. Itoosevelt, X have been greatly pleased to show you scone of. our German troops. Tou are the first civilian -who has reviewed our srk1fl!fr? " Turning to the officers, he said: TV e 1 are honored todav in having here the distintruished colonel of the Hough Riders" Parting salutations were then ex changed and the emperor and imperial party left in automobile for Potsdam, while Mr. Roosevelt returned to Ber lin. YOTE TO PURCHASE WATERWORKS AXD AGAINST RAISING RATES The Ikree CTet objections to niunlcl- , in? oimerahln nut forward in the past , were The certain impairment or de r.trnction of the city's borrovrlnBT power (then very limited); grave donbt an to the DermantBcy and adenuacy of the mesa supply and sn to the fnture penna- J ncnt roarces of first quality water; po litical conditions that made municipal -waterrrorkx highly Inadvisable. All those conditions have been radically changed of late. The political condi tions no loacer make municipal owner ship a danjeerous experiment. The re port of experts fixes the mesa as the permanent and adequate sonrce of pure water. The proposed plar of resting upou the present plant itself rather than upon the credit of the city most of I the debt obllsatoafr, disposes of the other objection as to impairing the city's borrowing power." From the report of the second water committee, tjames R Harper, chairman. WACO GETS HEBREW UNIVERSITY; BUT LOSES CHRISTIAN SCHOOL Waco, Tex., May 11. After losing the Texas Christian university by the decision of the board at Dallas Tuesday night,, the city is partly reconciled by the announcement this morning that it will gain the Texas Hebrew university, which is the only one of Its kind in the south. The city has accepted the offer, donated a site and the bonus. It is re ported the Texas Christian school site is to be bought by another denomination In the. near future but details are lack ing.

Vance, assistant cashier ,of the Stock Yards National bank at Fort "Worth, is uere With the other bankers, rigged out in a white hat, white shoes and other habiliaments to match. M. L. Stith, of Fort Worth, repre senting the Burroughs Adding Machine company, and H. E. Watkins, of Dal las, representing the same company, are showing the bankers how to do it without counting on their fingers. A. J. Clarke, president of the Deming National banK, is here meeting the Texas bankers Benjamin Titus, prominent capitalist and- United States commissioner at Lordsburg, came down to the conven tion Tuesday. He is a well known old timer in the territory. P. Chamberlain, representing the E. A. Wright Bank Note company, of Philadelphia, is attending the conven tion. Mr. Chamberlain knows every city in the west and has ideas about them, too. At present he is making headquarters in Houston. W. H. Fuqua Is two things, president of the First National bank of Amarlllo, and a director of the Southwestern Surety Insurance company. He also is In El Paso and happy. One of the most interesting men at the convention is E. C. Bates, agent for the Southwestern Surety Insurance com pany. Mr. Bates used to be a law yer in New York city, and is a New Englander by rearing. On account of injury to his eyes he had to give up a large law practice. Arriving in Chi cago, he called on a large book con cern. "I want to go to Texas," he said. And a few months later was down here selling law books to lawyers. Since he had been himself a lawyer, he must have made a star book agent, but, anyway, that has nothing to do with insurance or banking. What he doesn't know about Insurance isn't worth knowing. H. HIrsch, of Corpus Christi, is doing some tail bootsing for Corpus at the convention. He is distributing souvenir (Continued- From Page One.) New York bankers knew conditions as they actually existed in tha west and south. The bankers applauded the state ment made by the New Yorker that the feeling which ouce existed between the north and south hai now passed and that the people of the entire country were united as one country under one flag. Encouraging Corn Growing:. The subject of the Boys' Corn club was taken up at the morning session. This club was organized at the sug gestion of the Bankers association at the last meeting, the association prom ising to raise a fund to be offered as prizes to the boys of the state raising the best grades of corn. Cato Sells, of the Texas State bank, of Cleburne, spoke on the need for such an organization in encouraging the growth of more food products In Texas. R. E. Legate, of the' National bank of Denison, al?o spoke In 1 favor of the movement and urged the members to pay their assesments of $1 each toward the establishment of a per manent fund. This suggestion was put in the form of a motion by president Dunlap and was carried by the conven- j tion. Resolutions favoring the Dili 01 lading bill which is now before congress wa? also passed by the convention be- fore the noon adjournment. Tnenday Session The Tuesday afternoon session of the convention closed with an address by F. H. Welsh, pf Taylor, Texas, on "Cotton and Cotton Exchanges."

He is not in the city and has not corresponded with the club. & It is hinted, however, that other pri vate irrigation projects in which- money is now tied up, afford the principal in spiration for the protest, although many people believe the dam will injure the development of the, upper end of the valley. The protectants assert that the dam "will be the death knell of irriga tion in northern New Mexico. I. Clapp, of HatcK, N. M., points to the fact that the government allows the use of as much as 1000 acre feet of water notwithstanding the dam. He argues that this allowance with the transfer of old water rights to new. enterprises would allow the construction of the "high line" ditch so much desired by Albuquerque. Clapp points to the fact that the lower valley has mortgaged its lands for $40 an acre, that the govern ment has already spent $400,000 and that filing has been .made for 180,000 acres for water rights,. anda treaty made with Mexico. For these reasons they fight. A Boycott Started. The outcome Is hard to predict but it Is thought that the men backing the protest have a majority In the club which will condemn the dam. Some favor only a protest to the government to release the upper valley.. Two cars of goods ordered from Albuquerque by merchants in the lower valley have alreaay been canceled as a result of the agitation. Friends of '"the dam say they have this town be hind them and that the mass meeting will surely result in an endorsement of the dam.
