A., 'Arizona to the Union during the and responses by foreign dele-1 next temon ' congress. -Roa-gates occupied the remainder i we" Record. of the forenoon session. The foreigners have an important part in the program, and their presence is giving much inter est to the work of the congress. A demonstration lasting sev eral minutes was made when the military band Bent here by the governmeht of Mexico played "Star Spangled Banner" at the opening of the session. The singing of the Irrigation Ode bv a chorus of 100 voices also aroused enthusiasm. By the rules of the convention all resolutions will be referred to the resolutions com mittee. It is predicted that an effort will be made to inject into the resolutions a criticism of certain features of the national administration's forestry policy and the regulation of the gov ernment domain. Nothing of a political nature, however, is likely to find favor. The exposition, which has brought together the finest dis play of irrigation products ever assembled in the United States, was formally opened this morn ing by Governor Curry, follow insr a oarade of troops of the Department of Colorado. In which Gen. Bell took part. Pueblo, Colorado, and Spo kane, Washington are making a vigorous contest for the next congress. In his address, President Goudy said in part: "Some people assert, now that the national reclamation has become a fact, there is nothing more for this association to do. I reply that the work of this as sociation will not be finished until all the flood waters in the arid and sem-arid section shall have been impounded for irri gation, power and other useful purposes. It will not be finished until we have worked out the great problem of saving our forests, and particularly the forests at the head-waters of our irrigation Btreama. Mr. Goudy expressed the opinion that the government will not long continue in the business of irrigation, and favor ed an irrigation district plan as a method of obtaining funds through loans for irrigation en terprises. He declared the as sociation could work for uni formity of irrigation laws. He favored co-operation with the general government for the ex- tension of geological survey work and for the control ofj forest reserves and other public lands. Adjournment was taken until ( six o'clock to allow time for the j opening ceremonies of the in dustrial exposition, noon session was The after- formal addresses, and no di9-f0ur cussion will take place until to-1 morrow. Just at the close of the morn ing session a telegram was read from President Roosevelt, ex- The Reward. Governor Hagerman was an honest conscientious official. He believed that "Roosevelt Policies" meant honest govern ment. He found the grosset corrup tion in every branch of the ter ritorial government and began cleaning house. The "machine" being in full control, was responsible for this condition and its only beneficiary. He removed dishonest machine officials and was commended by the president. The "machine" at once sought his removal. Andrews had at this time gained a foothold at the White House, although shortly before a prominent New Mexico Rough Rider captain was reproached by the president for bringing Andrews there, and was told by the president that he not want to meet such men. Andrews bad, however, dis covered the "$5,000,000 con spiracy against the president and his policies," and was also supposed to control New Mexico's vote in the national convention, and had. therefore, become one of the president's advisers. Andrew's assistance to remove the governor was needed. He was promised the re-nomination by the "machine" for his help. The "solid seventeen" in the legislature denounced, by resolu sion, the governor as corrupt for delivering deeds to the Pen nsylvania Develoyment Company under a contract made and partially completed by a former administration with W. II. An drews and his associates. Armed with the resolution of the "solid seventeen," and with the assistance of the "machine," that pure and incorruptible statesman, W. II. Andrews, who had made the contract, de nounced as corrupt, invaded the White House and Governor Hagerman was removed. Mr. Andrews, who made that contract, was re-nominated for congress by the "machine. " Roswell Record.
