AND NEW MEXICO SUN 8IXTEENTH YEAR CARLSBAD, NEW MEXICO, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 21, 1008. NUMBER 14 YICE-PRESIDENT ACCEPTS IMITATION Fairbanks and 'Five Cabinet Officer. Will Attend Nation al Irrigation Congress SOME GOOD PRIZES SECURED Senator Penrose Offers Five Hun dred Dollars for Best Minerals Other Prizes Offered Washington. D. C, Feb. 13.- Vice-Preaident Fairbanks and five members of the president's cabinet will attend the National Irrigation Congress, together with several dozen departmental officials and members of con gress. This was made known today following an interview with the vice-president held recently by Col. VV. S. Hopewell, chairman of the board of control, and VV. H. Andrews, the New Mexico delegate. Col. Hopewell, assisted by Del egate Andrews, has Deen hard at work boosting the Irrigation congress in the national capital, with the result that he has se cured some handsome contribu tions for the prize fund. Follow ingare a few which he made public today: Senator Penrose, for the best exhibit of minerals, $500. W. H. Andrews, for the best exhibit of csttan, $100. H. 0. Buraum, for best exhibit of native chili, $100. Senator Elkins has promised a prize of $500 or more but has not yet decided on what exhibit. He also promises Colonel Hopewell that he would make a speech at the congress on matters of vital interest to the southwest and New Mexico in particular. The fact that the president and five cabinet members will come to Albuquerque during the big congress indicates how greatly .interest in New Mexico has been aroused by the delegation in Washington. There was not a New Mexican in the capital who did not have a good word to say for the territory and for the big congress. It is likely that by the time the congress convenes there will be a big delegation from this city ready to attend. As it now stands, the next Ir rigation congress will have the honor of entertaining more dis tinguished public men than any other congress ever before held. As a matter of fact there haa been a quiet plot on foot among the New Mexicans to secure the attendance of the president, and it is quite likely that if national affairs permit at that time Roose velt will be present when the congress convenes. Colonel Hopewell will not leave Washington for several days to come. He has a number of appointments with prominent officials and members of con gress and will secure a long list of prizes and exhibit before he finishes the task he haa under taken. . "I am going to stay here until I get everything in sight any how," said the Colonel at kin hotel last night "Wt are going to make the next Irrigation con gress the greatest one ever or know the reason why. "I have met with the most uni form courtesy and assistance on the part of the officials and oth ers whom I have met in Wash ington, and aid has been extend ed to me in every undertaking. I think that Washington has found out more about New Mex ico within the past few weeks than it ever knew before. Ev erywhere I go I meet with an earnest desire on the part of offi cials and congressmen to visit this territory and see the devel opment it has made. A whole lot of them will do so during the big congress, and I have a long list of names of prominent men who have said they will see ex hibits of the industry and devel opment of New Mexico from all parts of the territory at the big congress and all are anxious to view them."

The plan of guaranteed bank deposits has probably found fa vor among all classes of people and irrespective of political affil iation, more rapidly than any other public question. The new state of Oklahoma has already enacted a law taxing state banks, the fund thus accu mulated to be used in paying the depositors of any state bank that from any cause becomes unable to meet its obligations. A spe cial session of the Kansas legis lature has been called for the purpose of enacting legislature similar to the Oklahoma plan. The governor of Nebraska is considering the advisability of calling a special session of the legislature on account of the growing belief among the people that protection to bank deposi tors in the form of state or fed eral guarantees of their deposits will stop the hoarding of money, bring into circulation sufficient Stand High in importance among people of re finement.

Mr. Bryan has been an advo cate of a law guaranteeing de posits in state and national banks since 1893. The legislature of Ohio has adopted a joint resolu tion inviting Mr0 Bryan to ad dress its members in joint ses sion February 13, 1008, on the subject of guaranteed bank de posits. Mr. Bryan, in discussing the tariff question, insists that resi dents of the United States should be permitted to buy home nfade goods at home at as low a price as the foreigner can Uy American-made yoods abroad. He also insists that our govern ment should be by and for the people as a whole, rather than by and for the trusts, and ad ministered in the interest of a few beneficiaries of the trust I system. He believes that na tional legislation for the purpose of better regulation and control of interstate'eommerce and com mon carriers should supplement state legislation, and not be a substitute for state legislation. Mr. Bryan's paper, The Com moner, reflects his opinions each week on questions of public im portance and in its columns may also be found his magazine arti cles, public speeches, addresses and lectures, which are referred to in the daily press from day to day.

THE STAR PHARMACY TIIK fJtTAI.ITY HTOHK SALOON RESTRICTION Cardinal Gibbons Gives Views on Prohibition Favors High License as a Remedy Cardinal Gibbons, in an inter view on prohibition, says: "I am persuaded that it is practically impossible to put pro hibition into elf ct in a lurgo community and the best means therefore to promote temperance is to limit the number of saloontt by high licenses. In the country places I would suggest local op tion as a means for a suppres sion of intemperance if in tho judgment of a majority of the voters the sale of liquor should be entirely eliminated. Laws like those of prohibition, that are certain to be violated, are best not made, for their incessant violation draws upon them dis respect." Malaga News Items.
