Secralary Garfield Threatens to Sus

Washington, F> b. 15. J. Newell,
of the reclamation service, stated to
day that orders hud been issued to shut
down work on th«* Klamath irrigation
project, pending adjustment of differ
ences between the government ami the
settlers. This announcement follows
a decision by Secretary Garfield that
settlers must pay the annual mainte
nance charge of 75 cents per acre, be
ginning May 1 mxt. and must make
ten equal annual payments o f $3 each
per a re for the water right, the first
water payment falling due May 1,
Many settlers have announced that
they cannot pay $30 per acre for w ater,
but, as this is the actual proportionate
cost of building the project, the secre
tary cannot accept less. He requested
the Water Users’ association to inform
him what it is willing to do under the
circumstances, but as it lias not made
reply, he felt obliged to stop further
construction until satisfactory agree
ment is reached. The seitiers, under
the first unit of the project, which is
completed, will be lurnished water
tliia coming season, i f they pay the
maintenance charge, but, unless there
is a speedy agreement, construction of
the Clear lake reservoir will not be
carried forward and the second unit
of the project will remain undeveloped.
Meantime, Engineer Murphy, in
charge of the Klamath project, has
been called to Washington and w ill be
succeeded by W. W. Siccht.
F. W. Hanna, another reclamation
engineer, has been sent to resume the
preliminary woik of the Mulheur pro
ject and, if the Klamath controversy
is not adjusted, work may be concen
trated at Malheur.
ROBBERS SECURE $35,000.
Daring E.irly Morning Holdup Carried

this morning, was the work o f three

by the investigation of the railroad and
police officials today. So fur no tangi
ble clew to the identity or w hereabouts
of the robb. rs has been found, but it
seems probable that the men came to
Denver and are now hiding in this city.
The exact amount secured by the
robbers cannot be ascertained. It is
known, however,' that the registered
mail sack from Colorado Springs to
Denver was empty and that little of
value was in the Pueblo-Denver sack.
The sack from Portland, Colo., to Den

The robbery was remarkable for its
originality and-oaring. It took place
within eight mile of Denver, within
less than two miles of Fort Logan, the
United States military reservation,
and at a spot where habitations are
plentiful. Y et so thorough was the
work of the robbers and so well w'ere
their plans laid that they had fully an
hour and a half start of the officers.
Search of the vicinity of the hold-up
indicates thut a third man and possibly
a fourth were engaged in Hie robbery;
that a rubber-tired buggy was in wait
ing for the actual hold-ups and that
torpedoes and red signal fires were
used unsuccessfully in an attempt to
stop the train before the automatic
revolvers of the two men on the train
were used in doing this.

Mexico City, Feb. 16. Between 250
and 300 people were burned to death
and many others injured in a fire which
destroyed the Flores theater in the city
of Acapulco last night. The news of
the disaster reached here this after
noon, telegraphic communication with
Acapulco having been destroyed last
night and today, owing to the fact
that the telegraph office adjoining the
theater was destroyid and all wires
put out o f commission.
The Flores theater was a wooden
structure and last /light more than 1,-
000 people crowded i/ito it to witness
a special performance given in honor
of Governor Damian Flores, o f the
state of Guerrero. One o f the num
bers on the program consisted of a
series o f moving pictuYes. While the
operator was exhibiting these, a filn
caught fire and the blaze was quickie
communicated to some bunting which
had been used for decorative purposes.
In an incredibly short time the flames
spread to all parts o f the structure.
There were but three narrow exits
and the panic stricken audience rushed
to them, many persons falling to be
crushed to death, their bodies choking
