Fight for Next National
Irrigation Congress is On
Puoblo Co!. Aug. 1G. Active inter-
est In the place where the Nineteenth
National Irrigation Congress will be
held in 1911 1b now being manifested.
Letters to Secretary Arthur Hooker
and to other officials of the eighteenth
congress that will meet at Pueblo
September 26 to 30 indicate this
So far there are eight entries: San
Francisco Chicago Charleston St.
LouIb Milwaukee Rochester Kansas
City St. Joseph and some Texas
San Francisco was a candidate lust
year at Spokane when Pueblo was suc-
cessful. Word received - at congress
headquarters here indicates that there
.will be a renewal of the attempt to se-
cure the congress and that San Fran-
cisco and California will come to
Pueblo In September with a strong
Rochester was also a candidate at
Spokane. The theory on which it en-
tered the lists was not because of Ir
rigation itself but a growing interest
typical now of the east with reference
to the work of the National Irrigation
Congress In the big development work
the congress accomplishes.
This is best illustrated in a letter
Secretary Hooker recently received
from Secretary Woodworth Clum of
the Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
"New York's principal interest In
the general plan of irrigation must
necessarily be confined to a financial
interest. It was upon this theory that
Messrs Russell and Robbins of Roches
ter appeared before the irrigation con-(
gress at Spokane last year and urged I
that Rochester be selected for the
congress In 1911. We hope to have an
active committee at Pueblo next September.
"Our work in New York is along the
line of Intensive 'arming of demon-
strating a manner of cultivating the
soil so that a greater productive value
may be enjoyed. The matter of irri-
gation enters into the problem in a
very limited degree. We have a hun-
dred thousand acres more or less of
swamp land and a great deal of up-
land that must be drained. This we
are trying to accomplish through a
campaign of education and if there is
any way for us to co-operate with you
I will be glad to be so advised.
"I promised you this: That if the
National Irrigation Congress will meet
in Rochester next year you will have
at your meetings men who control
the finances of the east and who when
convinced as to the reasonableness of
an expenditure will be valuable
friends for your organization and
staunch supporters of your policy."
Secretary Hooker also has a letter
from C. F. Garfield a landman of
Rochester who has previously attend-
ed irrigation congress sessions and
is familiar with the value of such a
meeting to any town. He says:
"Rochester has not given up the
idea of trying to secure the conven-
tion for 1911 and intends to be repre-
sented at Pueblo in September. We
believe that you thoroughly realize
with us that if the west is to continue
to secure money from the east for irri-

gress comes east the better off finan-
cially irrigation will be as a national
Kansas City and St. Joseph much
for the same reasons and aa well be-
cause they are in the great Mississippi
river basin where industrial matters
and manufacture and jobbing for the
great mlddlewest originate have their
eyes on this congress. Kansas City
is the home of Colonel F. W. Fleming
fourth vice-president of the ' National
Irrigation congress and while favor-
able to Pueblo at Spokane last year
said at the time that he hoped in the
very near future to see Kansas City se-
cure the congress. Effort is now be
ing made along this very line.
Milwaukee and the state of Wis-
consin are ambitious and for this rea-
son have picked strong delegations to
the Pueblo congress in September. The
Milwaukee News said only a few days
ago commenting on this fact: i
"The delegates will make an effort!
to induce the congress to hold its'
meeting next year in Milwaukee and 1
a special committee of Milwaukee I
boosters will probably attend this j
meeting this year for that purpose.
"A. J. Cobban a clerk in the office
of the secretary of state and a mem-
ber of the executive committee bf the
congress has secured assurances from '
the delegations of the states of Ore- J
gon Washington California Montana ;
and Utah that they will co-operate
with the Wisconsin delegation in try- j

ing to land the next congress for Mil-;
waukee. The congress usually has an j
attendance of 2500 delegates."
There is also the possibility of
Charleston South Carolina which sent
a fine delegation to Spokane last year
and St. Louis entering the lists. Both
have already put out feelers and will
probably come up strong at the Pueblo
As to 1912 Phoenix Arizona which
by that time hopes to have the great
Salt river project the Roosevelt dam
completed has already signified its
candidacy. There was some talk of
Phoenix for 1911 but President Fow-
ler of the congress who lives at
Phoenix said on a recent visit to
Pueblo that he did not believe his
town would be ready before 1912.
Doubtless there will be other en-
tries withif the next few weeks for
the sessions of the National Irrigation
congress are a prize eagerly sought by
