REUNION IN PASS.
Annual Meeting of Pioneers ;
Association Is Held at
Hart's Old Mill.
"The men who built El Paso" gath
ered Monday afternoon at Hart's mill,
probably the oldest structure in EI
Paso, for the 11th annual get together
dinner of the EI Paso Pioneers' asso
ciation. The building in which they met was
built by Simeon Hart in 1S51 and its
thick adobe walls seem as strong as
ever. Nearly 100 men. guests and .nem
bers of the association, sat down to
table when the meeting was called to
order at 1 oclock by Cap. Hart. The 1
meal was lam in a room over lvw reet
long. It was a metal of El Paso's
younger days and included enchiladas,
tamates. sopaipias, chile, frijoles, beer
and coffee. And notwithstanding 'the
number of years their digestive ma
chinery has been running, the pioneers
ate until, as one of them remarked,
"they tasted the pine of the table."
3Infir Is a Guest.
Among the guests were mayor Tom
Lea and the city council, collector Zach

Smith, expostmaster, was chosen vice
president, taking the place of Lee Rob
erson. Herman Andreas and A. T. Sam-
worth were reelected treasurer ana
secretary, respectively. Tho new board
of directors Is composed of E. Krause,
Park Pitman, J. A. Buckler. L G. Gaal
and Lee Richcrson. Resolutions of
thanks to- the outgoing officers were
passed. Four members of the organi
aztion. H. A. Donnelly. S. H. Newman.
J. L. McAfee and C. C Black, died dur
ing the year and resolutions of regret
were spread upon the minutes of the
business meeting which followed th
Plan to Erect Club Honse.
Before the next annual convention Is
held the pioneers hope to have erected
a big club house on the acre ot ground
which Capt. Hart has presented to the
association. The ground lies close
the Santa Fe railway at the viaduct ;
and extends almost to the river bank.
Speakers yesterday urged the old
timers to work on the club house
proposition and Capt. Hart offered $500
toward a building fund. Although na
definite action was taken, it was in
dicated by the interest displayed that
a home for the pioneers will become
a reality this year.
Edward Knaezell was, teastmaster at
the dinner, aexican grls served and
at one end of which sat j(residentKne
zell and at the other end Capt. Hart,
who is honorary president for life. The
food was served on pasteboard plates.
Three Mexican cooks were kept busy
over a big range in an adjoining room.
When the meal was ended president
Kneezell introduced Capt. Hart, who
made the address of welcome. He told
the guests that the pioneers bade them
welcome. "This old mill." said the cap
tain, "is closed all the year except when
we pioneers come here and scare the
birds out, I wish you'd come and scare t
them out oftener. This buttdinc was
erected by my lather in 'SI and it is to
us a place of reverence for it typifies
the pioneer spirit We have an acre of
ground over there near the viaduct and
1 am eager to see a club house built
upon it. Letr establish a home, there
that we will bt proud of. Let's not have
people think that, even though our hair
is touched with white, we eannot still
do things. Of course, there are some
things we can t no any more line we
used to. but we suruely ought to be able
to build a club house. 'There are eight
or 10 former mayors of Kl Paso among
us, which shows that you can't die if
you belong to -the Pioneers' association.
Besides, only the good die first."
Judge J. It. Harper told the diners that
Kl . X.",1!:",, '.V.S-" "SS
bad made Bl Paso what It is today and
who will make it a grander Bl f'aso yet.
"They are the men who started this city
and they have seen it grow from nothing
to the chief ocnunnnity of the whole south
west. And they will make it grow greater
yet," he said.
"The views of the government, regarding
the pioneers," was asked of Zach Cobb by
Mr. Kneezell. Mr. cobb said he could not
speak for the government, but so far as
he, personally, was concerned the whole
view could be expressed in one sentence.
"I wish I was one of you." lie added:
"We have receired the benefits or your
work, for it is yoe who have paved the
way. It was yon who broke the trail and
to you "belongs the credit for what wo have
and are today. Tt'e -cannot too highly appre
ciate the work yon have done. I want to
cay that Capt. Hart desert es a big share
of the credit, for he has done more oT the
pioneer work than probably any other man.
And while I am speaking, let me not forget
to pay tribute to that grand old nobleman.

Knter City Officials.
Mayor Lea and aldermen J. P. O'Con
nor. John Fisher. R. B. Stevens and TV. G.
Jolly entered the room at this time,. Toast
master Kneexell told them he was sorry they
had not acrlved in time for Capt. Hart's
speech of welcome, wht-reupon the captain
stood up and said:
-Don't worry about that, 111 make an
other one," and he did. The mayor's voice
nearly broke with emotion as be acknow
ledged the, welcome and told the pioneers.
In a brief response, how he was proud and
glad to know them. He told them how be
came from pioneer stock and how the
memory of his father, who died recently,
made him revere the pioneers.
"Some of my warmest friends- are among
you." said the city executive.

wanted to come to 1 Paso until Hart's
speech was made. He convinced those 4to
delegates at that irrigation coacreas in
Osden that this was the place to hold their
next meeting and much of the credit for
the dam belongs to him."
William J. Moran, proprietor of the Labor
Advocate, addressed the pioneers, telllnK
them how pleased he a to be able to
attend another gathering of the association.
He paid tribute to the work done by them
in ftghtijig the early battles to make Kl

Following the dinner the pioneers went to
another room tn the mill and elected offi
cers for the ensuing year. President Knee

Col. Root Says All Prices
Are Quoted "Mex.," Ate
Mexican money and Mexico's mone
tary standard is in general use through
out China, Col. X. E Root, of the 16th
infantry, told the members of the
Men's club of the church of St. Clement
at the May dinner which was held in
the Sheldon grill Monday evening.
Col. Root spent three years in com
mand of the American troops in China
and made a careful study of the
economic system, the scheme of gov
ernment and the personal habits of
the Chinese people. He talked to the
men of the club for more than an hour
Monday night and was urged to con
tinue after he had concluded his series
ot interesting reminiscences of the
Chinese people and their customs.
1'ricea In Mexican Money.
"Mexican silver is used throughout
China although a new monetary system
has been put Ipto effect," said Col.
Root. "All prices are quoted in Mexi-
can money and. before the war, the
late of exchange wasTibout two for one
as it was in Mexico. At one time China
purchased a great quantity of Mexican
silver from the Mexican government
and it is still in circulation there. They

Li Hung Chang was one of the biggest
money changers in the country as that
is a most profitable business because
of the changing prices. He had agents
all over the country buying and sell
ing money. The foreign snops make

will pay you 5 1.20 or more lor a dollar,
depending upon the rate at the time the
money is changed.

In China they do not use our term

one "squeezes' as much as he thinks

boys and all of the others."
Opium Smoking Stopped.
Col. Root said opium smoking has
practically been stamped out in China
by the simple and -effective medium of
cutting oft the heads of the smokers.
This proves a sure cure, the colonel
declared. He said the use of cocaine
was being introduced among the Chi
nese 10 lane tne place of opium and
that "snow powder." as it is called, is
used extensively through the republic

said an America's was now doing mis
sionary work among the natives by
teaching them to smoke cigarets by dis
tributing iruantitles of cheap cigarets
throughout the country.
Shark Pins andilllnl Vrt Soup.
Col. Root described a typical Chi
nese dinner which he attended while in
China. This consisted of 21 courses
including bird nest soup which tasted
like soup made, from sea moss, buried
eggs which had been kept several
months, white wine served hot and

i Valley Needs Organization
for Marketing and More
"I am afraid the farmers li the El
Paso valley are pretty much like the
farmers of some parts of eastern and
central Texas there they have been
planting too much cotton: here they
have been planting too much alfalfa in
proportion to the amount of land in
cultivation. Diversification of crops
and the introduction of dairy farming,
hog raisins and poultry raising would
benefit the El Paso valley."
This is the way Prof. J. I QuicksalL
of the United States department of
' agriculture sized up the Kl Paso val
I ley situation Tuesday after a two days
tour of the valley in company with A.
G. Graham, local government demon
stration agent. Mr. Quicksall is dis
trict supervisor of this demonstration
work apd Is on the first of his official
visits, which will be made every six
weeks or oftener.
"I find the .farmers nere anxious to
I learn and in a receptive mood." said
1 .Mr. vtuicKsan. -we held a meeting
this afternoon at Clint with the fann
ers, at their own suggestion, and (
was extremely glad to see the Interest
they manifested. Our object is to co
operate with and show the farmers
what to do and we are always glad to
have them evidence such at spirit of
interest in the work.
Tenchlnc Ilojs and Girls.
"This farm demonstration work and
cooperative work is making rapid
progress throughout the United States,
and it is accomplishing a great good.
It deals with organizing the farmers
for growing, and marketing crons. Tt
J also teaches them how to get the best
cauiiz.. ne arc carrying it into the
schools and are accomplishing wonder
ful results with the boys and girls. We
are organizing cow clubs, corn clubs,
pig clubs, garden clubs, flower clubs
and then encouraging competition
among the school pupils. Prizes are
awarded at the nd ora season for the
best results. The girls generally take
to the garden work and flower grow
ing; the boys to pig raising, corn grow
ing and calf raising- I-ast year one
boy grew 40 bushels of corn on an acre
of land which adjoined his father's
corn field, where the father only grew
IS bushels of corn. Tlfc father was
immediately convinced of the value of
agricultural .instruction in the schools
and admitted that his boy in one year
had learned more Than he had ac
quired in a lifetime of experience about
growing corn. The children take an
interest In the work and they take
an interest in school as a result. In
stead of 'playing hookey they want to
i attend school.
ystcDi In Marketing.
"One of the important problems In
the Kl Paso valley is that of marketing
the crops. The farmers must be or
ganized so that they can deal intelli
gently with the commission men. Th'-
j commission men know when they will
need such and such an article and they
must place their orders in advance to
be sure of It. If the farmers of the
El Paso valley would organize and as
certain just how many acres they j
would have and about how many :
pounds of a particular product they
would be able to market, they could j
go to the commission mn in adance. I
arrange to market It. But when the
farmers work as individuals, and wait
until -their crops are ready for market j
before trying to sell, they invariably 1
find the market glutted with Imported
stuff, contracted ,by commission men
in advance. It is not wholly the fault
