That Colfax county will attempt to make the banner exhibit at the big National Irrigation Congress which will be held at Albuquerque next September was evidenced by the size of the crowd and the enthus iasm of the meeting held at Springer last Saturday evening. The meeting .is called to perfect arrangements tor the exhibits that Colfax county win make at the Irrigation Congress, and to work up enthusiasm through out the county. Büt perhaps the prin cipal reason for the meeting was the wish of the Colfax county committee to induce the farmer throughout the county to make especial effort along all lines to get ready and pre y j'P f the exhibits. The meeting was addressed by some of the most noted men of af fairs in the territory, and by those at the head of the big irrigation con gress. Governor Curry being the chief attraction. Mr. Salazar, of Springer, was the first speaker of the evening, his ad dress being made in Spanish for the benefit of those who spoke Spanish only. Col. C. R. Twitchell, the sec retary of the congress gave a very forceful address, and outlined briefly the plan of the congress, giving something of its history. Mr. Ceo. H, Webster, the chairman of the CoJ fax county committee on arange mtnts,' was the next speaker to fot low Col. Twitchell. Mr. Webster stated that the committee wants every farmer, lumberman, miner, ranchman, etc., to make exhibits at the Springer fair, which will be the next county fair, and from the best of these, exhibits,' that exhibit which will represent Colfax county at Jhe big congress at Albuquerque will be chosen. Colfax county will have a building of its own, arrangements baring already been made for the MmDer ana the other material nec essary. In this building will be placed the Colfax county exhibit by itself. A sub-committee has been provided for, and this committee will visit the farmers and others of Col fax county and confer with them in regard to the exhibit of each, trying to induce every one who grows or produces anything to select their best. Mr. Webster further pointed out that a big exhibit would be a great advantage because' it will show eastern farmers what can be pro duced here in Colfax county, and, be cause of the large numbers who. will attend the fair from every state in the union, will show the world what we have and can do, thus increasing our chance for statehood greatly. Col. Hopewell, the chairman of the congress, spoke a tew words. tie stated that the heads of nearly all the departments of the government have signified their desire to a the congress. He stated that there' heard o( the but it :. exDected will be United states soldiers and . sailors and marines in attend SANTA FE AFTER C6W C. F. & I. Road May be Sold in a Short Time A party of Santa Fe officials re cently inspected the rolling stock and other properties of the Colorado and Wyoming railway, for the purpose, it is said, of reporting to the manage ment on the advisability of taking over the property. Since the officials made their visit, nothing has been ance at the congress, and that "Tama Jim" Wilson, the secretary of agri culture, has promised to give his ut most aid, as well as his presence, to the congress. The best received speaker of the evening followed, and great ap plause rang out time and again as his excellency, the governor, Hon. Geo. Curry, arose to speak next. Gov ernor Curry promised his utmost aid to the big congress, and stated that when the government officials, con gressmen, senators, etc., who will visit New Mexico next fall, have seen the development and. the resources of the territory; when they were made to realize that we have a population of over 400,000; that we have less criminals in our penitentiary in pro portion to our population than any state or territory; that fifty post of fices and thirty banks were establish ed in our limits within the past six months; and that during' the panic there wasn't a single business failure. The favorable impression which all these must produce, will in his that information will reach this city as soon as the intentions of the com pany are determined. The Santa Fe management had plans in view which would make the C. & W. a property of considerable importance. Whether this was to carry out the original plans of John C. Osgood and connect the various lines, or to utilize them in some other way is unknowi. It is said that ne gotiations had progressed far enough when the inspection was made for the deal to be put through if the Santa Fe wished to do so. The controlling interests in the C. Sc W., it Is said, were ready and willing to relinquish the road. Under the terms of the agreement the Santa Fit was to do the work for the Colors J Pre! and Iron company that is now carried on by the C. & W. The original plans of Osgood con templated a railroad system of con siderable proportions, but after build ing various stretches of the line the scheme was abandoned. In Pueblo the company has many miles of track on which work is done only for the C. F. & I. At other places the tracks extend to coal mines and other min eral properties. From time to time reports have come out that the sys tem would be constructed or some other line would take over the prop erty. The Santa Fe officials were not very reticent, however, about the plans which the company had to take charge of the road. Those who were aware of the officials' visit and the purpose have been looking for some announcement for a week past. WILL GIVE MINSTRELS TO REBURY ANARCHIST Fisher and Prof. Horton, of Califor nia. The way Springer handled the enormous crowds to the entire satis faction of everyone, and the most cordial maimer in which everyone was entertained, demonstrates that opinion,, result in admission to the Colfax county could not have a bet union. The other speakers of the eve- ter choice of a place for its annual nlng.were Mr. Richards, "Buffalo fair. Our sister city did herself Jones," A. C. Abbott, territorial su- proud, and the dance following tl perintendent of public schools, C. O. ; meeting was a most enjoyable affair. LOCAL TALENT WILL GIVE NIGGER MINSTRELS. ORGA NIZATION EFFECTED.

LOUIS, ROCKY MOUNTAIN AND PA CIFIC RAILROAD .COMPANY EXTENDING LINE. For some time there has been the rumor that the Swastika route, other-1 wise known as the Rocky Mountain road, would be extended this spring. Cimarron is greatly interested in this extension, and the following clip ping taken from the Denver Times may be an indication that the rumor is not without foundation William A. Tracy and Frederick A. Singleton of New York, representing the Fisk & Robinson company, are ' at the Brown hotel cn route to Ra ton, N. M., where they are going to inspect the properties of the St. Louis, Rocky Mountain & Facific company. I isk & Robinson is one of penses of the funeral will be met byt,lc large bond underwriting firms of the Free Burial society, a Jewish philanthropic organization. "The police have denied me the right of free speech within the city limits," said Miss Goldman, police will not bother me at the cem etery. I ave a right to 'go there. am not challenging the interference of the department, but I declare again, as I have declared a dozen times, that I am in Chicago to test the right of free speech and I will test it." Miss Goldman had expected to go to the cemetery in any case, she said, for the purpose of paying her respects to the anarchists who were hanged for the' Haymarket square riot in which many policemen lost their lives. Every time she comes to Chi cago she makes a visit to the monu ment erected to the dead anarchists. She calls it "Chicago's symbol of shame."

This com pan is becoming a formidable rival of the Colorado Fuel and Iron com pany and proposes to enter the steel business if sufficient iron ore can be secured. It is also the plan of the company to extend the railroad and ultimately make it a transcontenta, line. Charles M. Jones, president of tht New England National bank of Boa ton, and Charles H.
