ROOSEVELT SEES
TROOPS MANEUVER
Goes Riding TTith Emperor
to Witness Military
Evolutoins.
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;

Roy E. 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." Before he
parted to speak, Mr. Welsh, who is
vice president ol xne noi rtauuuai
bank of Taylor, was presented with a
big bouquet' of flowers by his friends
among the Texasbankers.
After the adjournment the bankers
and their wives were taken to Mexico
on a special train of electric cars to
see the sights of the old town. The El
Paso bankers and business men accom
panied them as official- guides and ex
plained the quaint old places to thewis
itors from down state.

tron has 'anything to do with the agita
tion. 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.
