j U Done the First Split.
Chicago. June 9. The first plit
since the republican national commit
tee begun hearing 'contests was made
today when, after a hot discussion
end much objection, It was finally de
termined to divide the Louisiana rep
resentation, but even this Is considered
a victory for Taft, as it leaves hi
tnen in control of the state.
The fight has tautened the name of
"Lily whites" on the Taft men and
the term "Black and tans" on the al
lies. .So far as contests In the south
are concerned, the ' decision means
that Pearl Wright, a Taft supporter,
will be the sole dispenser of federal
patronage In Louisiana. Former Gov-'
ernor Warmouth of Louisiana Is furi
ous at the result When the commit
tee adopted the compromise resolu
tion he was asked to accept- It. "I
'lll bolt the convention first." he
aid; there can be no compromise
that I could accept; It Is Impossible."
Warnmouth says he will never en
ter an agreement with the black and
tans. The committee took adjourn
ment before going on with the con
tests, In ordor to allow Warmouth to
cool off. The compromise gives nine
votes from Louisiana to each side.

The board of directors of the Com
mercial club held their regular meet
ing last night and Indulged In a gen
eral discussion of future plans, and
j audited the bills against both the old
.organization and the new. The bills
presented against thfl old Commercial
oiub amounted to about 9186. Tha
expenses of the now club amount to
between J90 and 1100, so far. To
meet these diibursenients the treasury'
contains about 1170, realized from th
sale of the furnishings in the old
building, so thut very little will need
to be drawn from the funds collected
from members of tho present organi
zation. The expert "of the Pacific Monthly
company will be here Thursday and
en-,,tu'n tl,e mttcr of selecting a secro
tary to the pnbllclty organization will
be gone Into. Suitable quarters, more
easily accessible to the public than
the Commercial club rooms, will be
obtulned for the hendtiu.irtera of the
publicity campaign. ' .
Irrigation Scheme.
Probably the moat Important prop
osition -yet to come before the club is
a scheme, submitted Inst ntht, for an
I" mm'- for an
I ,mmNW ,rr,"ln V'M to Include
practically tho whole valley. The of
ficials of the club consider it favora.
bly, and the only obstacle In tha way
of an assured success la the difficulty.
If any exists, of getting tho farmer
sufficiently Interested. While the sit-,
uatlon Is peculiar here, !n a much as)
we have a habit of ruining excellent
crops without irrigation, no sensible
man doubt for an Instant that our
products, In addition to being mad
more valuable as to variety, would be
Increased several fold with Irrigation.
La Crando Will Celebrate,
The matter of celebrating ' th

and to say jhat (he members present
were enthusiastically in favor ot mak
