Will Build the Dam at Once.
The Times i» oleased this morning in being in a poei-
ticn to inform its reader, that the official order has been
given to go ahead with the work of completing the great
Elephant Butte dam. It hati long been desired by the
people of this section that the matter be settled quickly
and effectually, and now this has been done by the offi-
cial written order sent by Richard A. Ballinger, secre-
tary of the interior to the head of the reclamation de
The news is particularly gratifying in that it is ab-
solute and final and in that the' Importance of com-
pleting the Elephant Butte project is Set forth in Con-
vincing and unmistakable terms by Ballinger.
The secretary not only has ordered the reclamation
service to proceed with the work of completing the dam
at once, but calls the attention of the officials of the
reclamation service to the fact that the treaty between
Hie United States and Mexico makes it absolutely im
peratlve that the dam be completed at the earliest date
possible. Furthermore the secretary insists that the
Engle dam be given preference over any and all uncom
pleted reclamation projects.
The reclamation service is positively assured by the
secretary that the money for completing the dam will
be forthcoming as rapidly ,ib it is needed. This an-
nouncement dispels all doubt that the project will again
be held in abeyance because of lack of funds.
The official command to go ahead with the work on
the dam cornea at a most opportune moment, just as El
Paso is in the midst of an astonishing number of gi-
gantic undertakings, enterprises that are ever the true
signs of real genuine prosperity. It is the signal to
buckle down to real business and forge ahead as never
With the dam again tinder way and the assurance
that plenty of money will be promptly on hand to assure
its speedy completion, the business element of El Paso
can feel doubly encouraged. They now have an excel-
lent Incentive to impel them to carry to the point of
consumation all co-rttemptatScf projects f various kindt
and to plan still other projects. For the building of the
Elephant Butte dam marks El Paso's entrance into a
new era of prosperity and is the harbinger of the com-
ing of thousands and thousands of skilled farmers who
will take possession of the countless acres of nearby
lands and turn them from burning deserts of nothing-
ness into fields bloomlnn with nature's choicest products.

An Argument Against High Insurance Rates.

tiie regrettable matures afforded an object lesson ol
which the business men of the city should make good
use of ip combating the unji*t and high Insurance rates

out very suddenly and gained extraordinary headway,
would have consumed veryihing within reach of Ha

Cruelty to Animals.
Recently complaints about cruelty to animals have
become unusually frequent and some of the inatances
cited have been ao horribly contemptible and inhuman*-
that It appears difficult ;o find suitable punishment to
fit the crime.
In most of the cases dogs are being made the victim*
of Ihe crueiest kind of torture, principally by Iw-ing de-
prived of water after being penned up in cramped quar-
ter* to prevent them from wandering around the city's
streets. There is not the Slightest doubt but that El
Paso is subjected to unnecessary annoyance b.v the I
overabundance of dogs, stray ones at that and of mongrel j
fFixer. This is a nuisance that no community should j
tolerate particularly at a time of the year when the In j
tense heat' is almost certain to have its effect upon
dogs frequently driving them mad and incidentally sub-
jecting the public to the fearful danger of hydrophobia.
Vet there is always a proper manner In which dogs
can be handled so a* to avoid the nuisance to the pub i-
and at the same time preclude ail possibility of an-
necessary cruelty. The majority of the dogs wand-ring
about arc- of no worth whatsover and should be gathered
in and then be put to death, but by humane methods
The humane society should by all means look Into
tie matter and should take rigid steps to prevent any
and all cruelty. In their work they will receive the
support of all good citizens. The arrest made the
other day by the society charging a driver with un
mercifully beating a pair of males, w-us a commendable
set and I* an excellent start i.n enforcing absolutely
humane law- There is entirely too much cruelty of this
character going on, the drivers of wagons and irucks
seeming entirely oblivjotiB to th- intense cruelty of which
they are guilty.
Other forms of cruelty to animals frequently become
manifest and a campaign against such practices cannot
he made too strong. Every- inhiance of crueity should
In brought to the attention of proper authority and im-
steps should then he taken to prosecute and
'i houghtb-ssnes* Is generally Ihe cause of most
cruelly to animals and in such cases all that is needed
s to Impress upon th-- mind of the wrong-doer the awful
*k-kedness of his net. Yet there are many instances—
,i) fact ail t-w> frequent where Individuals resort to
11nelly not because they forget or fall to think-hut
fdmidy because they do not care whether or not they
inflict pain. The buffering of a poor dumb beast is
nothing to them. They are utterly callous and continue
relentlessly inflicting pain and torture upon helpless
Such Individuals deserve no mercy whatsoever. They
know and realize thoroughly what they arc doing. They
are the class of Individuals who will stoop to anything
no matter how base, for to the man who willfully and
knowingly will torture a dumb brute, there Is nothing
acred nor Is there anything too vile or debased for him
u perform. Such characters cannot be dealt with, too
cvei-ely lu no way should they b- spared.
Fortunately El Paso has not many such Individuals
and Incidents o extreme cruelty are the exception rather
than lb- rule. I.lui in anv event it i* well that the city
has a Immune society anti the activity of such a society
deseiving of all possible encouragement In order that
-veil the Uilltor act* of cruelty lie stopped. El l’aso
citizens are not only energetic and progressive hut they
Ilk) Wise possess a ueuMmvntnl trait that looks askance
upon anything that borders on the Inhumane.
