davr wlere she was standing at the time
he "was shot and killed. However, Miss
Blevins stuck to her testimony of the
previous day and declared emphatically
that she did see him.
It developed during the trial that Car
penter had, about four months prior to
me killing, asked for permission to stop
at the -ieadquarters Tanch over night
and his request had been refused bv Mrs.
Simpson. He had later called in the ab

and asked mow the women, were getting
Miss Blevins said that -she told him
then: "You certainly ought to know
how iwb have got along; you have taken
everything from us, even the team.
She declared that she thought Carpenter
her worst enemy and she did not con
sider him a gentleman, admitting that
her reason ior iimuwiiis ua ito f
of land troubles and of something he
had said about Simpson, but she aid. not
state what this was.
Throughout her testimony was evident
a deep feeling of hatred for Carpenter.
At noon court adjourned with Miss
Blevins still on the stand, the defence
having announced that they had fin
ished with the witness.
Dr. J. "W. "Visant, of Pecos, was placed
on the stand in the Carpenter case this
Afternoon. He testified that Bert Simp
son had died from a gunshot wound on
June 3, 1909, and said that there wer
three bullet wounds in the left breast,
near the nippli just over the heart.

yesterday afternoon, appears on. page 11.

The "Women's Charity, in giving back
the city and county work, and taking up
again its special tasl is making no sud
den or unpremeditated step.
For six months it has been apparent
to the women that they were face to
face with the cold, unalterable fact that
there was not enough public -money ap
propriated to them for the public char
ities. For six -months the question has
been discussed at their executive boards.
Twice before It has come to a vote.
Tho iwnrlr In fho five- rljv wan taken
only on trial. It was evident that the
ononey allowed by the city?65 a month
would be Inadequate to meet the needs.
The county work has not been satisfac
tory to the women, largely owing to tne.
conditions at the county hospital. The
women took the -work -with the hope that
the city -would realize its own great need
and that the county would establish hos
pital and workhouse conditions that
would make the permanent betterment
of pauper conditions effective.
Has Splendid Record.
The Charity has anade a plendfd rec
ord of -work accomplished on limited
money and limited city and county co
operation. But the women are not satis
fied. Money and cooperation are vitally
necessary to any progress in bettering
civic and county charities.
The Charity has been prompt, syste
matic, and effective, merciful and prac
tical. The poor have been helped to a
better nold on life, the community has
been hflped by the discouragement of
chronic beggars and paupers, and the
continual effort to put people on their
feet, and make them self-supporting and
self-respecting. i '
The Charl'ty Reports.
The Charity's reports have been min
ute, 'prompt, and complete. The Char
ity's economy las been the economy that
good women accomplish. They have a
special training In their lives in the
handling of money to (make it go as far
as possible and do as much as possible,
and a continual training in kindly thrift.
They learn It in their own homes.
The Charitj- has paved the way for a
United Charities, has prepared the
ground for a scientific and cooperative
effort By untiring devotion they have
brought a new spirit of charity into the
city. They have taught El Paso coopera
tion. In returning the workr tney gladly
offer their services wherever they are
Their record is wonderful and un
usual in that for seven years' disburse
ment of money entrusted to them and
seven years of efforts to give both wise
ly and mercifully, there is not a single
failure, not a vital (mistake or inac
curacv to be charged against them. Their
record is one of unvarying f r endliness
to every progressive step that the com
munity has taken.
Thanks to the Public.
The women of the Charity very grate
fully acknowledge the unchanging, gen
erous friendship that the people have al
ivays extended to them. They took up the
public charltj' with the earnest hope of
carrying it to a better day, and they
feel that they have succeeded.
El Pasoans Hold Luneheon
and Discuss the Campaign.
The first gun In the (campaign for
the conquest of the foreign mission
field and the world was fired today at
a noon luncheon given by 50 laymen of
the city at the Angelus cafe. Rev.
Thomas Semmes, an Episcopal minister
of Richmond, Va., was the principal
speaker ana ne outlined the plans for
the Laymen's Missionary movement,
whicli is to take tangible form here on
February 27, 28, and March 1, when a
group of 14 international missionary
evangelists -will conduct a series of in
terdenominational services in the Pro
testant churches of El Paso.
The luncheon -was the result of a
number of committee meetings which
have been held recently for the purpose
of organizing the laymen of "the city
in anticipation of the world wide mis
sionary movement among lajonen which
is to center in El Paso on the last two
days of February and the first -day of
March. J. j. Ormsbee, chairman of the
executive committee, presided t the
meeting, which followed the luncheon,
and Introduced Rev. Mr. Semmes, who
spoke briefly on the laymen's mission
ary movement as organized by J. Camp
bell White and as it is being conducted
under his guidance.
Stating that the original missionary
movement began more than 100 years
ago at the famous Haystack prayer
meeting in Massachusetts. Dr. Semmes
told how the laymen's missionary move-'
ment, the modernization of the original
missionary compaign, has resulted from
the celebration of the centenary of this
Haystack prayer meeting. "This same
J. Campbell White is the biggest man
in America," the speaker declared. "He
is the biggest man because he has the
biggesttwork in the world on his hands
and that is the conquest of tlie world
to Christ through the laymen's move
ment." ' f
At the close of his talk, Rev. Mr.
Semmes answered a number of ques
tions that were asked regarding the
Laymen's Missionary movement and
suggested that while the preachers
should enter into the work"; the real
campaign should be done by the lay
men and that laymen occupy the pul
pits of the Protestant churches on one
Sunday while the missionary campaign
was in progress.
A statement of the plan for financing
the convention was also made by chair
man Ormsbee. Each delegate to the
laymen's convention to be held In con
nection with the campaign was to pay
a delegate's fee of Si, which was ex
pected to raise almost half of the ex(-

New toocero Means
fi for El Paso
The Two-Kepublics Life In
surance Go. Is Something
All Business Men Should
It was predicted, some time ago, that
during the present year EI Paso would
begin the greatest and most substantial
growth in the history of the southwest
and the announcement made yesterday
to the effect that a life Insurance com
pany was being organized by Messrs.
B. F. McNulty. James A. Bordeaux, of
San Antonio; E. W. Hutchinson and E.
E. Perrenot, of Houston, and prominent
local business men, was perhaps not
looked upon by the general public as an
unusual great thing for El Paso. Never
theless, it Is the most important an
nouncement made in many months, as far
as the benefit to El Paso is concerned.
People who are not acquainted with the
benefits that we are to derive from this
enmnanv cannot ren.li mrim- ?. ,
In cold figures it means that within five j
yca-is una v:umyuJiy ivm nave in the
neighborhood of $3,000,000 of assets,
which is a very conservative estimate)
and it would be toying with figures to'
attempt to figure the amount of money
that such a company would bring to
This company was incorporated last
June and since that time more or less
work has been spent in organizing and
formulating plans for "The Two Repub
lics Life Insurance Co.," which means
so much to El Paso.
Another encouraging thing about the
new company is that thay propose to
keep the money at home, give us cheaper
insurance and at the same time make
their stockholders as large a dividends
as any old line company. The gentlemen
who arc working on the,organization are
not looking for a "soft berth," if there
should happen to be any, with the "Two
Republics Life Insurance Co." The gen
tlemen are among the most experienced
and most prominent insurance men in the
great southwest and after the company
has been organized, and should the
stockholders decide that the services of
these gentlemen were needed, they would,
of course, consent to remain at any po
sition the stockholders should decide
npon. At the same time they propose to
leave the company absolutely free to
select whom-it may for positions merit
should win. A lengthy article could be
written on the merits of a home insur
ance companj and the enormous amount
of money sent from El Paso and vicin
ity each year to companies that do not
leave or invest a dollar in El Paso or
the southwest. Suffice It to say that
it is expected that prominent business
men of El Paso will subscribe ,$100,
000 for stock. In a few weeks after
the organization of this company there
will be several times that amount of
money in El Paso. Prominent men of
New Mexico, Arizona, west Texaa and
Mexico will also be asked to subscribe
for stock until the capitalization has
reached $200,000, and a surplus of like
amount. The territory of this company
is the largest in the United States to
day. This company will have at least,
a radius of 600 miles that is not cov
ered by a local insurance company..
It is needless to state that these gen
tlemen have succeeded in securing the
cooperation of several of El Paso's best
known and most influential business
and professoinal men.
Messrs. McNulty, Bordeaux, Hutchin
son and Perrenot are making their
headquarters at the Sheldon, and would
be pleased to give any one further particulars.
