Keeps His Head in Moment of Excitement
Attending Street Car
The State. j
In Camp With the South. Carolina1
Kational Guard in the Ell Paso Patrol j
District on the Border, Sept. 11.? |
Lieut. A. D. Willis of Columbia, sec- j
end lieutenant of the Governor's
Guards of the Second regiment, has 1
keen a witness before the El Paso!
county grand jury which is investigat-1
ing the incidents in connection with '
the rioting by the strking employes '
of the El Paso street railway system!
oa Labor day. Lieut. Willis "was in
EH Paso on Labor day when the riot'
broke out and was passing through j
San Antonio street when a crowd was!
mobbing a motorman and conductor !
and was engaged generally in throw- j
ing rocks and other available matter
through the street car windows, cut- J
ting the trolley poles and cutting up as
only a mob can. The story of that riot1
has already been printed but every
or e says that the police turned their
basks while the rioters beat up the
"sctfba" motormen and conductorsj
and destroyed the street cars. All:
this was going on when Lieut. Willis 1
talked through the street. On hi?1
way down and in trying to get out
of the mob he was struck on the shin
fry a beer bottle thrown through the'
other side of a street car. Just at this
time some Texas rangers ran up and
ordered the crowd back and leveled
their guns? ready to back up their
commands. There was a crowd of
soldiers on the streets and some of i
the rangers or police called to any !
" ' 1- - il. ? '
officers in tne crowa to ma^e me
oldiers get- out of the way. Lieut.
"Willis, who was jammed in the hunch,
kappened to be the only officer and
ke commanded the soldiers to fall,
baok 'which they promptly did. At'
this moment two mounted policemen ,
?&me galloping up and arrested Lieut.
"Willis. The Texas rangers and tha
foot police called to the mounted police
to let the lieutenant alone as he
was assisting in quieting the dsturb&nce.
The soldiers w*ho had fallen
back on orders of Lieut Willis, seeing
bim under arrest and noting the dis-j
pute .between the mounted and dismounted
police started to crowd
around, whereupon Lieut. Willis told
tbe officers to oome with him out of
die crowd. They went down the
atreet and turned a corner and on understanding
the situation .promptly
released the lieutenant with profuse
apologies to him.
Saved the Situation.
Tfcere was much indignation among
other officers who witnessed the incident
and ft will undoubtedly result
In a shaking up of the police department.
A Michigan lieutenant lookeu
Lieut. Willis up and told him that it
as outrageous that he should have
been arrested and that but for his action
in ordering the soldiers back
from where the mob was beating up
the raotorman there might have been
bloodshed. Hf offered to do anything
in his power. This same position w*as
taken by scores of others and th?3
Texas rangers, it is said, said that
Lieut. Willis was assisting in restoring
,?r<ler when the mounted police
came up. Col. Holmes B. Springs has
taken the matter up and if Lieut.
Willis is not accorded the proper treatmeat
and full justice done in the matter
<he will probably take the incident
to the atteniion of Gen. Bell and asK
tor an investigation.
There has been a street car strike
in ER Paso for some time and the cars
have been operated by imported men.
Tb? strikers seized Labr day to vent
their indignation and stoned' cars full
of people, cut trolley poles, beat the
EKrtormen and conductors, while the
police stood idly by and looked on.
The affair has caused great indignation
and both the local papers have been
unsparing in their condemnation. A j
grand jury is investigating. \Several j
participants of the rioting are held I
in tail. The strikers appeared to |
have gone too far and public sympathy,
formerly largely with them, has
turned and is demanding that those
responsible be brought to account.
The street cars are being operated
with, policemen armed with shot!
The report of the grand jury is
expected to put the blame for the
affair where it belongs. J
Soldiers Called Back.
While the rioting was in progress 1
on Labor day Gen. Bell issued orders
lor all soldiers to be held in their |
camps. Labor day was a general holi"*

eral leave. Many had gone to El j
Paso but when Gen. Bell's orders
were issued the provost guard ran j
every soldier back to his camp and
'wasn't long about it. That afternoon j
no soldiers were seen on the streets
except a few officers.
Rie provost guard ifl very efficient
and no soldier disobeys orders. Then,'
are 90 of them on duty in El Paso and
they are armed either with police j
clubs or with rifles. They are drawn
from four regular regiments. They
do not interfere with civilians but
keep order solely) among trie eoi-;
A quartette from the First Kentucky
regiment came over to the Sumter
Guards of the Second South Carolina :
on Wednesday night and played and '
sang for them. Col. Springs, Lieut, i
Col. Allison and many of the offi-i
cers of the Second gathered in the J
mes? hall of Company A to listen to
th? songs of the men of the Blue;
Grass State. They played the banjo,!
the fiddle, the mandolin, the guitar :

were J. W. Richardson, C. H. Short,

"Down in the City of Booze" was a
favorite while the Palmetto q.uar- J

verse which told what the sons of
South Carolina would do for the
"Greasers" because we're from Caro-,

filled the mess hall and were gather-1'
ed in scores on the outside would
follow it with a mighty shout. It was !
a very enjoyable evening and there
will probably be more of them.
Speculation as to how long they are'
to fce on the border has been started
among the Palmetto boys by reason!
of seeing the long train loads of 'New j
Jersey soldiers passing through en
route home. The New Jersey boy9 j
were stationed in the Douglas (Ari-j
zona) district and some of them were
sent 'bade after being down a shorter
time eveii than the boys from South
Carolina. The New Jerseyites were in
jovial mood as they passed through j
El Paso homeward bound and they J

j men, however, will be taken care of
by the government while the men are

army appropriation bill including an
item of $2,0Cr0,000 for this service.
When a guardsman hereafter applies
for release under this dependent

letter sets forth that the government

MAXWELL PRESIDENT PROVES
FUTURE OF INDUSTRY IS SAFE
Walter E. Flanders GWes Yital
Statistics to Shew Great Field
Left for Motor Cars.
Frequently the fear is expressed that
the market is becoming glutted witk
automobiles, that the time is not far
distant when the supply will be far
ahead of the demand, and that the
great motor car industry ^ upon which
many thousands of persons are dependant
for support, will stagnate and
wither from its present proud eminence.
That such predictions are groundless
and are not based on the actual
conditions in this country, is the statement
of Waiter E. Flanders, president
and general manager or the j
Maxwell Motor Company, Inc., who j
backs up his belief with a series of!
vital statistics that are of interest to}
the entire industry. These statistics
show conclusively that the doubting
Thomases who are making dire predictions
of the future of the automobile
.are speaking without a knowledge!
of the real situation, or if they havej
that knowledge, they are ignoring the i
REASON FOR BIG PRODUCTION, j
"There is a very good reason for the
increased production in the Maxwell
factories," said Mr. Flanders.
"That reason lies in the fact
that there are at least' 3,000.000
owners of homes and 4,000,000
farmers in this country who are
not owners of motor cars and who.are
natural prospects. (This takes no acrwni-rii
nf Vi-nrlre^s of t1lOUS<.ndS Ot i
home renters who are well able to
buy the kind of a m^tor oar they desire).
There you have a minimum of
7.000,000 who will buy cars within the'
next four years. This means that 1,-1
"50.000 will buy er.ch year.
'We have in the United Siatea 15^
J 000 cities and towns of 500 or more:
population and in these cities and
towns are 5,000,000 home owners, of
vsfoom only 2^000,000 have bought
"There are 6^500,000 farmers in this:
country. Their average income last!
ear was $1,552. Of this number, |
.000,000 now own cars, while 1,500,000
are poor or illiterate. This leaves
| 4,000,000 farmers -unsold.
"Approximately 3,000,000 cars are j
I owned and in use in the United States, j
I The life of the average car is five;
j years. A man who has once owned a,
I car will never be without one. That j
statement will stand with but Isolated j

There is a good, healthy market foi
motor cars and there is no immediate

told us of the great enthusiasm engendered
among the young people in

He spoke of their methods of

that the responsibility of leadership
rested solely upon the young people
themselves. He was heard gladly.
Rev. J. W. Carson conducted a conference

The closing address was made by
Rev. J. W. Carson. This was an inspiring
appeal to the young people
from the view point of conservation in
the consecration of their lives and devotion
of their abounding energies to
the cause of Christ and suffering humanity.
He would have them say to
the church: "Use us or lose us." He
passionately plead for deeper consecration

young people need the church, and
the church needs the young people.
The conservation of both'is wrapped

"THE KISS OF HATE*
America's favorite stage sUr, Ethel
Barrymore, now a permanent member
of Metro's staff of stellar artists will
next make her bow from the screen
here in "The Kiss of Hate," a dramatic
story of Russian life. Wiss; Barrymore,
who made her debut in Metro
pictures in "The Final Judgment,"
won such a sweeping success in this
production, duplicating on the screen
the countless triumphs which have
been hers in the spoken drama, that
Metro concluded a contract with her
under the terms of which she receives
a higher price per picture than any
other stella artist now appearing on
Miss Barrymore's contract with
Metro calls for the production of at
J least four pictures a year for a term
I of three years, for each of which she
j is to receive the sum of $40,000, or
$480,000 in all.

This Condition in Kansas Points to
Five hundred country churches are
fcAan nVM?nfJio(nfid in Kan
8E1Q lO Ut>C UUVU
sas in the last five years. Many of
them -without local successors, have
been turned into stores or warehouses.
Others are falling into decay. Does
this condition indicate religious decline
in Kansas? Not necessarily.
The abandoned churches were the religious
misfits of a new community.
The system of consolidating schools in
central localities is to some, extent
duplicated in the consolidation of
countrj- chifrches. Cheap automobiles
also enable the farmer to go farther
to church than he once went; though,
to be sure the same invention not inJ
frequently enables him to dispense
with the church altogether.
The automobile temptation has turned
a good many former churchgoers
into (Sunday excursionists and pleasure
rders; and this phenomenon is
not confined to Kansas. Cases art
plenty, however, in which three local
churches have been consolidated into
one central cSurch, which has more
attendants than the three old churches
combined. What religion needs,
not only in Kansas, not only in the
West, but pretty much everywhere in
this country, is a higher voltage and
not more circuits; fewer feeble
churches and more strong ones; intensity
rather than distribution.
Blinds hanging by one hinge, broken
window panes and a congregation of
bats in a rural church do not always
signify religious decay.
