WATER USERS CAN'T AGREE ON PLANS (Continued from 2age lO longer time within which to reimburse the government for the money spent in the development of the projects. C. H. Schenk, secretary of the South side Minidoka Water Users' associa tion, told the secetary that the diffi culties of the farmers would be solved and their dissatisfaction obviated If the payments on their project were ex. tended over 25 years or SO years in stead of, as sow. 10 years. He said that to repay the government in 10 ? early instalments 'would 'work hard ship among many of the farmers. He declared his association in every way was satisfied with the management of the Reclamation service. Hants t 'EdeCHte" Fanner. "Do you want to have your project turned over to yon?" secretary Lane asked. Mr. Schenk explained his negative answer by saying that he did not think that the community was able or ready to manage the project: that its mem bers must first be educated up to a point where they could undertake an efficient control. "That is the most modest statement that has been made at these hear ing's," secretary Lane murmured. A fhuckle went around. "We want a long period of payment." Mr. Schenk resumed. "That would largely solve our problem." Wb4k Complete Central. Mr. Rush representing the water users of the north side of the Mini doka project, stated that the water u-ers wanted to take over the com plete business management of tho i roject. Upon being questioned by representative Raker, of California, he stated that longer time on payments nould be given. He also complained that, as things are now. the project engineers can go ahead with construc tion whether the water users will or not "As long as the service has com plete charge, there will be complaints.'' he said. "Control should be divided up between the water users' associa tion and the service."

Earl B. Smith, of Yuma, Arizona, chairman of the executive board, of tha National Water Users' association, in which the local associations of some of the projects are included, while on the stand, outlined the force in the hands of the water users' association to collect payments. The associations report nonpayment of dues to the pro ject engineers and the water is shut off. Mr. Smith said that were the collection of payments for the govern ment placed in the association's juris diction, this same poyer would be em ployed in collecting them. Secretary Lane asked if this were not "high-handed." rRBSIDKNT RKMITS AX ARIZONA INDIAN'S FINE Washington, D. C. May 12. For the first time since entering the 'white house, president Wilson has exercised his authority to pardon or commute sentences of federal prisoners. Favor able action was taken on five cases which were sent to him by the depart ment of justice, the sentence in each case being commuted. In passing upon the petition of Richard Dickins. an Apache Indian, president Wilson was required to ex hibit a knowledge of intoxicating drinks. He decided that "tizwin" is not as bad as it sounds, and favored the Indian, who 'was convicted on charges of giving "tizwin" to another Indian on the Fort McDowell reservation, Ariz. Dickins was convicted in the United 8tates district court at Phoenix last May, and sentenced to SO days in prison and a fine of $100. The prison sentence was made retrocessice from the time of the man's arrest, so the president has only the fine to commute. Clemency was made on the recom- rw A A A t .. .4 Al . 4a.iS.v.. ..

PARRAL FALLS INTO HANDS OF REBELS Federal Are Marching to Chlbuahna, Accompanied by Most of the Towns people, Fleeing Prom the Rebels. Riding everything from burros to bicycles, 300 residents of Parral are moving overland with the federal gar rison of the Chihuahua mining town, peacefully occupied last week by the "Constitutionalist" forces. From Parral to Chihuahua city is a march of 200 miles, and suffering Of the townspeople is mingled with the comedy of their means of transporta tion, related refugees arriving here to day. The trip will require a week. Most of the refugees are residents who had declared themselves against the revolution, thus endangering their safety when the 1200 federal troops were withdrawn. v Fixating Bn Route. Aside from the trials on the women, and children during the long march, probabilities are that a battle will re sult before arrival at the state capital. Already rumors have gone back to Parral of fighting in which the many groups of Insurgents have begun- to harass the retreating federal column preliminary to an actual attack. A large portion of the column is of infan try, necessitating slow progress, while the Insurgents axe all mounted and easily proceed ahead. Gen. Antonio Rabago, military gov ernor and commander of the northern military zone, at Chihuahua city, has issued a statement explaining the sad den evacuation of the southern part of the state. He declares that the Parral garrison merely will augment that at the state capital, which is of no more than 600 men, while another strong column reported moving north from Torreon will retake Parral. American Brings Report. B. E. Leonard, a young American who Is master mechanic of a mine at Parral. arrived here Saturday night confirming the capture of the town by the "Constitutionalists." On a motor cycle he rode all the way to Chihuahua city, tneeting on the way half a dozen insurrecto bands, including that of Villa. All were mobilizing to cut off the federal retreat. "Also I passed the federal column on the march." he said. "There were 1200 infantry, cavalry and IS machine guns. But the insurgents have as many rapid firers captured recently from a supply train together with many brand new rifles and much ammunition. "There surely will be a light before the federals can reach the state capi tal. Parral was occupied before I left by 800 rebels under Gen. Monelova Herrera, who Is recognized as com manderinchief of the insurgents. There are about 4000 altogether in the district." TREE REIN IN SEIZING MUNITIONS Drastic measures are to be under taken by the United States army to break up the ammunition smuggling along the Mexican border. Orders were received by Gen. Hugh L. Scott, commanding the Second cavalry brigade, from Brig. Gen. Tasker Bliss at Fort Sam Houston, instructing the t-atrol officers not to hesitate to seize -ms and munitions of war not in the inda of customs or other public authorities or under a customs bond here there is reasonable ground to be lieve that an attempt is being made to ship .them to Mexico. ThlS is the result of the recent de cision of the United States supreme court that a mere shipment 'of arms and munitions of war with intent to take them into Mexico constitutes a violation of the joint resolution and proclamation, regardless of whether the shipment is part of a military expedition. RUSEK STORE AT JIMENEZ DESTROYED Chihuahua City, Mex., May 12. Refugees arriving here from Jlmencs say the large mercantile house of Marcos Rusek, in that place, has been saeked for the second time, and de stroyed by fire.

He 'was released Saturday eve ning and was rearrested Sunday. On Monday he was again reported to have been liberated. There is a rumor current in Jiiirnc that changes will be made in the civil offices there, and some of the present officeholders will be removed. Mayor Jose J. Flores has not been advised of any such contemplated move. Discuss ing It he said: "I would be very glad if they would remove me and put some one else in my place. I have been grant ed a leave of absence for 20 days, but not one has been named to take my place during my absence, and until someone is appointed, I cannot get the rest I need.

Three oil bearing strata are visible in the oatcroppingg if the Dayton and Artesia oil field, says J. F. Parker, who has returned from a trip of inspection, over the entire New Mexico field and says that the indications for a good, steady arcdaeing supply in the new field is moat promising. Tha firs oil stratum is 900 to 1000 feet below the surface.. This strata has been tested and the Brown well, which is owned by the Pecos Valley Oil com pany, is pumping 50 barrels a day. The outcroppings show that the second stra tum is 2000 feet down and ay belle T is that this and not the first or third , .will be the gusher producing strata, if one is developed in that field. This first and peoved strata will produce from 25 to 100 barrels a day by pumping. The second is down 2000 and the third is between 28M and 3000 feet down. The Doheny company, which is repre sented by C. R. Troxel, is preparing to sink a -well to the limit, I believe, m order to ascertain just what the field contains. This rig, a standard one, must have cost 16000, and I do not belieo that the Doheny people will ever stop at the 1000 or even the 2000 level, fur thev are after oil in quantities and are exploring the field for its total possi bilities. "The strange part of the Artesia-Day-ton field is that the wells that are now producing are original artesian, wells and not oil wells. J. M. Wyatt and Clarence Pickrell are having a well on their tract between Dayton and Artesia. reamed" out and the slush from this well will burn up three or four feet in the air when it is lighted. The area of the field is 300 square miles and then is oil in this section without a doubt. In addition to beinc a new oil producrng district, the section is one of the richest agricultural districts I have ever seen, not excepting the 1 Paso valley."
