Says More Advertising and

Homeseekers rates and advertising
for this section is V. R. Stiles's receipe
for a greater El Paso and a greater
southwest. Given these two mediums
for bringing homeseekers to Ei Paso
and the surrounding section, and with
the vast areas of dry" farming territory
j at EI Paso's door, the former general
passenger agent of the Southwestern
route, at the business men's luncneon
today, said El Paso would grow to be
the greatest city in the state.
"What we need is the proper kind of
advertising and the right kind of rates
to bring people here," he said. "The

Comparing the country surrounding
El Paso to Colorado and Kansas, Mr.
Stiles showed how Colorado made use
of every natural resource, utilizing
every foot of ground and storing every
gallon of surplus water In reservoirs.
In Kansas, he said, the country had to
be settled three or four times before
it was made what it is. But finally the
people persisted and made the lands the
finest there was out of doors. "Right
at our very door," the speaker said,

Rio Grande Parking.
James G. McNary reported collections
for 5091 feet on Rio Grande street for
parking and paving and said others
were promised, there being some new
residents who had not been seen. He
said- "Owners of 535 feet have de
clined to pay; A. M. Robinson cannot
pay; Mary H. Allen declines to pay,
complaining she has not been fairly
treated. Lane and Conotsen, owners of
120 feet, declined, and Mrs. Jones, at
the corner of Rio Grande and Oregon,
did not havovthe monej'."
Continuing he said:
"Henry Pfaff has not paid but I am
inclined to believe he will. Mrs. Annie
Boone declines. Mrs. Pomeroy says she
will pay when actual work begins. It
is a real hardship on some people to
pay but the fact that so many have paid
shows they are deeply Interested. I be

"In the 5091 feet the city's property
is included. Owners of 250 or 300 feet
have refused to pay.

L,as Cruces, N. M., Feb. 10. David
I Guaderrama. son of Jose Guaderrama,
sr., who keeps a store at the smelter in
El Paso, was brought here from An
thony Tuesday night and is now under
arrest on suspicion of being implicated
in the mysterious aisappearance of Ig
nacio Pena, who disappeared Saturday
night. Guaderraona is a barber at An
thony and is a brother of Jose and Avi
llno Guaderrama, of Anthony.
Nothing has been heard from young
Pena since he left the dance at Anthony
Saturday night. It was reported at An-
! thony Tuesday that his body had been
found in the river near Anthony, but
this was found to be a" false report. A
search of the country surrounding tne
Anthony ford has been made and the
river dragged but nothing has yet been
found by which the body of the young
Mexican might be -located.
Sheriff Felipe Lucero returned to Las
Cruces but before he left, a number of
clue3 were discovered. At the river ford
evidences of a struggle were found near
the river bank and the marks showing
where a fight had evidently taken place,
were discovered by the sheriff. It Is re
ported that a pair of shoes upon which
mud stains were found had been discov
ered in a saloon at Anthony and also a
saddle and saddle blanket upon which
there were marks resembling blood
stains, were found in a corral there;
also the horse of William S. King which
disappeared the night of the dance.
Pena the young man who is thought
"to have met with foul play, was a wit
ness in a case which was brought
against David and Avilino Guaderrama
and Liberato Garcia some time ago for
alleged theft of alfalfa seed.

action be taken and that Mr. McNary
pay the parking bills from this fund.
