It was the work of the delegates that "Unharmenized" them. Many re- publicans wanted to go the demo- crats one better and promise the aged fifty to sixty dollars per month. Convention A Success-- The republican state convention like the democratic was a success from every viewpoint. The auditor- ium was filled to capacity. There was plenty of oratory, lots of cheer: ing, and enough booing to keep things interesting. The old age pen- sion people domineered both garb- etdngs and constituted at least two thirds of those present outside of the delegates. In each instance they spent a good deal of time waving flags and singing songs about Mr. Townsend. The republicans will have contests for lieutenant governor and regents of the state university. The rest are unanimous. Their convention started Monday night with a meeting of the state central committee and ended Wed- nesday morning with a breakfast to the republican editors of the state at the Brown Palace Hotel, where they met and discussed the campaign with John Hamilton, national committee- man of the party. Penitentiary in Good Conditlon~ There is no doubt but that the Colorado penitentiary is in the best condition in its history, even though it is over-crowded. Roy Best, war- den of the prison, was in the city at- tending to the state assembly. In a general discussion of the prison, he said: "The prison is at its peak in pop- ulation. We have 1251 inmates. The capacity of the prison, with two hun- dred twenty-four cells, sleeping dou- ble, is eight hundred twenty-one. T~hat gives us four hundred thirty more than we could sleep within the prison walls. We have four hundred twenty odd men on the outside. We are building adobe houses at all of the prison farms to take care of them. We find the adobe house the best. I have one old Mexican who knows how to build them and I give him six helpers. He built me one house that would hold sixty men and another that would hold seventy-two and all it cost me was two loads of straw. "Of the 1251 inmates, they aver- age less than thirty years in age. We have a hundred and twenty who are under twenty years of age--just; kids. They are generally in for rob- bery and short checks. They are the hardest prisoners we have to handle. They are not old enough to understand prison discipline and are like any other set of boys, just obst- reperous. Pr~wever, we get along fine with them because when they treat us right we treat them right, and when they treat us wrong we go them one better. We have the last guess and then it is too late for them. "It is a crime and a disgrace to have them in the penitentiary. I be- lieve the Industrial School at Golden vnd the Reformatory at Buena Vista should be enlarged into vocational training schools and these boys should be kept there until they are taught not only how to earn a living.with their hands but with their heads. Take a boy this size and put him out with a five dollar bill and a suit of clothes that will shrink thirty per- cent in the first rain storm and what ,can you expect. They never should Hoffman.

Kepley home. those we have on the farm, we have the license plate factory,,the knitting machines, the soap factory, and s dozen other places where we can put men to work. They like it better. They are heartier and they sleep far better and there is less trouble when men are working. We average be. tween four hundred and four hun- dred fifty men on the outside all the~ time and we have only lost four men l thru escapes in the last year. The. record used to be from fifty to six-i ty a year. Nearly all of our outsidei men are in charge of life termers.1,~ We find that the average life termeri is just as reliable as can be, and heI is perfectly willing to refrain fromI trying to escape in order to be on theI outside of the walls. "As you know, we just about mov- ed a mountain and added four more acres inside the walls. This gives us plenty of room for shops wherein the men can work. What we need most is a cell house within the walls. If !the next legislature will give us the money we will build enough cell huoses within the next two years to take care of all of our men and take. care of them right." Investigating the Rel~ort-- I There is a general report to the effect that the federal government1 is negotiating a treaty with Old Mex-I ico that will give that country part of the waters of the Rio Grande riv- er in return for waters given this country from the Colorado river. Both rivers are tributary to lands in this country as well as in Old Mex- ico. T~ere has never been a com- pleted agreement between the two countries over the division of either of the streams. At the time the Ele- phant Butte dam was built on the Rio Grande, it was agveed that Old Mexico could get sixty thousand acre feet of water delivered just below E1 Paso, annually But Mexico con- tended that he was entitled to more water from the Rio Grande than just that sixty thousand acre feet. at There is a canal in operation the present time that flows from the l Colorado river thru part of the Ira-i perial Valley in California, into Oldi Mexico, and circles back into tlve Im-! perial Valley. The aU-American ca-! . . , i nal that is being constructed will i just ~bout put that canal out of busi_IT hess. Old Mexico is contending th~tt! with the completion of the all-Ameri- can canal there should be a treaty a- greed upon that settles the distribu. tion of the waters of both streams, to both countries. It is generally believed in Colorado and othert states depending upon the waters ofI these two rivers for .... thmr ~rr]gatmn .that such a treaty is under negotia- tion. While treaty negatiations arei supposed to be kept secret, the states involved are ]mghty interested" in the final outcome and for that rea-i son they are trying to get informa-i tion that will help them in, as far as pos~ible, becoming parties to the treaty, i ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENT OF SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 8 SAGUACHE COUNTY STATE OF COLO.
