BIG MEETING
AT SPRINGER
DISCUSS PLANS FOR COUNTY
EXHIBITS AT NATIONAL
CONGRESS. GOVERNOR
CURRY PRESENT. GEO. H.
WEBSTER SPEAKS. DANCE
ENJOYED.
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

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.
Last Wednesday evening a num
ber of Cimarronites met at the Mat-
kin hall and formed an organization
for the purpose of giving a "Nigger
Mistrel Snow." Mrs. O. F. Matkin
has consented to take charge as mus
cal director, and Harry btcen was
chosen president of the organization
and instructed to outline an enter
ment, purchase music and do every
thing to get the home talent troupe
at work.
Cimarron has a number of very
promising artists in the minstrel and
vaudeville lines, and a number have
already promised to give the venture
their hearty support. It is the in
tention of the management to give
a regular Nigger Minstrel ana also
to intersperce it with a few mono
logues and dances. Every one who
takes an interest in amateur musical
productions are cordially invited to
attend the next meeting, the date of
which will be announced later.

LOOKS GOOD
TO CIMARRON
PROSPECTS OF ST. 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."

New York and they underwrote some
of the bonds for tlie St. Lbuis, Rocky
Mountain Taciiic company, which is
constructing a railroad across north
ern New Mexico, building coke
ovens, opening big coal mines and
prospecting for iron ore. 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. Newell, of Prov
idence, R. I., are accompanying the
New York parties It is understood
that they will inspect the propertie
of the company in northern New
Mexico, with the object of taking ad
ditional bonds if the outlook comes
up to expectation. The four men
took a trip over the Moffat road yes
terday, and are today calling upon
some of th; business men of Denver.
Tonight they will leave for the south, .
