Fairbanks and 'Five Cabinet
Officer. Will Attend Nation
al Irrigation Congress
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
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
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."

Wm. J. Bryan Has Been Advo
cating the Guaranteeing of
Deposits Since 1893.
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

panics as the one through which
we are now passing.
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

and lectures, which are referred

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.
