Mr. Roosevelt by the members of the.
organization and -with due deference to i
honest difference of opinion, have ex
pressed the view which I still enter
tain that the solution of the direct pri
mary issue can be found In provisions
fcimilar to those of the Cobb biil."
Grlscom'u Comment.
In commenting- on president Taft's let
ter and the situation -which It discloses.
"Mx. Griscom gave out the following:
statement.
"The methods used to accomplish the
defeat of Mr. RooBevelt when his name
was before the state committee are now
clear to the public.
"I have not the slightest doubt that
the action of the state committee will
be reversed and that Mr. Roosevelt, if
his engagements will permit him to
accept will act as temporary chairman
of the convention and make the prelim
inary speech. As chairman of the New
Tork state committee, I shall cooper
ate with Republicans throughout the
state who believe it in the Interest ot
the party that this result be brought
about.
Mr. Taffs reply to my telegram dis
closes that the reports industriously cir
culated of a supposed conflict between i
the president and the ex-president on
New Tork state matters are baseless.
"The way ds now clear for the Repub
lican part?- of this state to take steps
which will warrant and secure success
at the polls in November. It is evi
dent that some of the socalled 'old
guard' are not seeking Republican suc
cess at the coming election; they wish
to perpetuate their control of the Re
publican organization at any cost to the
party."
Roosevelt's Statcwieiit.
Col. Roosevelt at Oyster Bay, after
reading the full text of president Taft's
letter, dssued the following formal state
ment:
"I am very glad to see president !

OIL INDICATIONS
GOOD AT SHAMROCK
J. A. Brent Says That His
Well Is Now Down 1200
Peet and Still Going.
J. A. Brent, who in company with
J. M. Duke is engaged in sinking a
well prospecting for oil at Shamrock,
formerly known as Camp City, N. M.,
says the indications for oil there are
1 good. Mr. Brent, who Is In El Paso se
curing some new drills and supplies,
says:
"We have sunk our well to a depth
of 1200 feet and have good indications
of oil. We are casing the welL At a
depth of 900 feet ,we struck a forma
tion known as Ellinite, -which was of a
thickness of IS feet. This is a sub
stance iwell knovn to oil men and while
It resembles mica, being transparent,
yet it will burn, while mica will
not.
"At the 1200 foot level, we struck
a hard shale and there has been some
gas which indicates to us that the oil
is below. We have contracted for the
sinking of the well to a depth of 2000
feet and, while we expect that we will
not have to go below 1600 feet to strike
oil, yet with our equipment, we can
go to a depth of 3000 feet.
"In the canyons leading to the claim,
there is oil shale and seepage and, af
ter breaking through this shale, there
is determined an- oil smell. Yet there
is nothing proven as yet.
"We have nothing,to hide and the re
port that we have been gobbling up
all land in sight is not true. I did take
up several claims when I first went up
there, but many others have taken up
claims and all the land has been lo
cated for a distance of 15 miles around
there."

Eapid Work of Clearing the
Southwestern Property
on Mesa.
A great change is taking place in
the landscape in the vicinity of the
Southwestern general office building.
i Almost overnight the buildings on the
1 road's property between Wall and Main
I streets running east and west and Stan
ton and Mesa, north and south, have
disappeared. All or the buildings hav
been wrecked except that on Mesa for
merly occupied by a cleaning and dye
ing establishment, and that building
will have been razed by "Wednesday
noon.
The improvement made by the leveling"
of the buildings is a revelation and
when the plot of ground is parked it
will be merely a continuation of beau
tiful San Jacinto plaza. The change
will make the general office building of
the Southwestern seem at least a block
nearer the center of things.
The curbing will 'be put down around
the plot as soon as the block is cleared
of debris, but the grass will not be put
down until next spring.
The only spot at variance with the
general parking scheme will be that
property of the G. H. railroad, which
extends from the southern border of the
Southwestern's property to the G. H.
tracks. If that road sees fit to park
, ii jjiujjeny, me scneme oi Deauty will
be complete. It is believed, however,
that the G. H. intends to erect an office
building on this plot and this belief
is borne out by the fact that it did not
cooperate with the Southwestern in its
scheme of improvement. Plans have
been drawn for the' building
"Work on remodeling the old general
office building of the Southwestern
road on Campbell street, to be used as
a club building for Southwestern em
ployes, win begin soon after September
1, the time set for the vacation of the
building by tenants. The contract has

ORIENT BUILDING
WORK IS PUSHED
Stflwell Hopes To Extend
Line to Pacific Coast
in Year.
Sari Antorrio, Texs, Aug. 23. Within
a year it is predicted that the Kansas
City, Mexico & Orient railroad will be
running through trains from Wichita,
Kas., to Topolobampo, a harbor on the
Pacific coast of Mexico.
From Wichita the line is in operation
as far southwest as San Angelo and
trains are running northeastward from
Chihuahua, Mex., to a station across the
Conchas river. Between these two ter
minals the distance is 365 miles and con
struction will be pushed with all speed
to through service from Wichita, Kas.,
to Chihuahua, from which point, the
road is finished for a considerable dis
tance westward.
construction is progressing rapidly j
iium oan angelo southward towards
Del Rio, where connection will be
made witlythe National Railways of
Mexico, building northward from Al
lende to meet the Orient at the Rio
Grande, where another international
bridge will be built.
Important traffic agreements will be
made between the Orient and the Yoa-kum-Hawley
interests, controlling the
Texas Central, the Mlsouri, Kansas &
Texas, and the St. Louis, Brownsville
and Mexico lines, by which combination
another through short line to the Citv
of Mexico is available.
The Texas Central line, of 281 miles
crosses the Orient a short distance
south of San Angelo. and through the
Katy connects with Brownsville, offer
ing a direct thoroughfare to the capital
or Mexico, over the newly completed in
ternational bridge at Brownsville It is
possible that joint deliberations between
the Orient and the Mexican North West
ern may result in the determination to
combine on one line through the Sierra
Madre mountains, one of the most dif
ficult routes on the American continent
The completion of the Orient will
open up a vast and fertile territory to i
uuiuHiaauon ana result in west Texas

success, and my mother brought me
the Cuticura Remediest insisting thrt

Mar Lee Chung Calls His Ac- j
quaintances Highbinders
and Smugglers.
Mar Lee Chung is making things live
h for his enemies. It is beiieved that
this fo-ish Chinee, who heaped indignity
on Mar Wing Kee bv pulling the latter s
cue and thus started a tong war, is re
sponsible lor the raid of a Chinese --m
bling den by the police Monday night, in
which nine ot the Celestial;, fell into
which nine of the Celestial
the htmds of the law.
Mar Lee Chung, to a casual observer,
iveess nvere the last thin" he was pos-
sesseu oi, out t-ne ponce Know uetter.
During the last tong wur, -when six of
Chung's enemies, including the nw or,
Mar Wing Kee. were arrested, Chung
lead the way into the midst of his ene
mies. with such running continents as,
"That's him; him highbinder, had son
of a gun."'
Chung asserts that the trouble started,
following his failure in business on
Broadv.ay, wheie he yas conducting a
Testaurant. His creditors, he avers,
agreed to settle with him at 50 cents or.
the dollar. He sayt he gave the mone
to Mar Wing Kee to effect the settle
ment, and that -when a settlement wita
Kee was made he found that the latter
had retained $G0 Or $70. In the dispute
which followed he admits that he pulled
his enemy's .pigtail and brought him to
earth. '
"Last two or three days,' continued
Chun jr. "me learn he say he kill me. Xo
care r money spend thousand, mebbe
two thousand dollars, get somebody chop
my head with hatchet."
Ohuiig carries further his little joke
and says that Mar Wing Kee is at the
head of a bunch of highbinders, which
accusation always makes the accusea
Chinaman very happy.
Chung goes further. Ue give3 the
names of the men he alleges are smug
gling Chinese into this countrj'. The
police have these names. Chun-- is still
in consultation with the police, and other
raids may be ex-pected to follow in the
near future. ,
The nine Chinese captured in Monday
night's raid, which occurred at 227 Ore

gaming, in police ccurt Tuesday after
