In Most Cases,' Same Ar
ticles Are' Cheaper Here
Than in Ciudad Juarez.
A narrow strip of -water separates
Windsor, Can., ana Detroit, Mich., the
same as with the two sister cities of
the southern border. Juarez and El
?aso. But only so is there similarity
Different peoples step daily over the
International lines, and varying indus
trial and commercial conditions pre
vail. But both El Faso and tDetroit are in
the United States, and for fiiat .reason
suffer' from the alleged cruelty of the
trust controled food markets, the big
trusts and all the little-brother trusts.
In this day of high prices for almost
everything worth having there has been
much written and said about the cause
of it all. Statistics have filled the pages
of eyery magazine, and newspapers
have carried bulky reports of officials,
Interviews with business men, howls
from consumers. Tet nobody has found
the real cause of it all and so the wise
ones say that there are causes, many
Statistics often are useless things,
often giving unfair Impression.' And
yet they are all that may be relied
upon. The Herald has compiled some
simple and wide ranged figures on
prices In Juarez and El Paso, adding
them ' to matter drawn ,up in the two
sister cities of the north, Detroit and
"Windsor., Nearly everything is cheaper
in the' Canadian city. But not so in
Juarez. Living, from food stuffs to
rent, in many ways Is more dear In
Juarez than Inhe Texas city.
The Detroit-Canadian figures were
drawn up to show the Americans what
the awful trusts have done to the "home
of the free." Tet, there are no trust!
in Mexico and still pripes are high. It
is very confusing.

With the lajpcal Players.
THE BIG SMOKE
Today is a national holiday in this,
the capital of the great southwest.
The Chicago club, of tne American
league, affectionately called the "White
Sox wherever baseball Is known, ar
rived on the Golden'-State limited today
at 12:40, a fast team on a fast train.
Thy came from Phoenix, where they
played the Phoenicians Tuesday, and
will remain here until the Texas &
Pacific train beats it for the east Thurs
day evening. --
Hugh Duffy, the -new Sox manager,
was riding herd on the outfit when it
arrived in El Paso from the Arizona
desert country. Comiskey had been
called back to Chicago.
But there are a sufficient number of
celebrities among the Sox squad to
make a Roman holiday with some to
spare. "Large" Ed"Walsh, touted by
Ted Sullivan as the greatest mouna
worker in the game when he is right;
"Doc" "White, the tooth carpenter of
State street, who quits the club regu
larly each year to pull molers, but
she,ws up in uniform when the grass
gets green on the south side park; Ed
Smith, who pitched here last year, and
others, many others.
Then there are the "war correspond
ents." Hugh Fullerton, Hugh Keough,
George Rice names that are familiar
to baseball readers: Fullerton is be
ginning his 15th season as a baseball
writer. In addition to his work as spec
ial correspondent for the Chicago Exam
iner, his stories of the Sox trip are
being syndicated by the Hearst papers.
He also writes a series of baseball ar
ticles for the American magazine.
'"Hugh E. Keough, who writes for the
Chicago Tribune under the name of "By
Hek," Is also with the Sox. covering
the game for the "Trib." Keough is

on their way from California to the At
lantic coast. Rice is one of the -steady
boys like Tom Andrews. It Is no trick
to balance a dollar, providing one has
the necessary iron man, on George's
wrist while he is writing his copy, he
is that conservative.

The personnel of the Sox parity which
arrived this morning is as follows: Mr.
and Mrs. George Bice. Mr. and Mrs.
Tom Kelly, of Iowa, who are guests of
the Sox party t on the trip; William
Veeclf, Tcnown to fame as "Bill Bailey,"
Hugh S. Fullerton, of the Chicago Ex

Louis Comiskey, son of Col. Charles

are: Barrows, Collins, Zeiger, Parens

Messenger, "Kruger, Block, Olmstead
Scott, Sutor, Walsh, Smith" and "Buck"
the negro trainer.
An El Pasoan who attended the world
championship games between the Tigers
and the Cubs said while he was there
that a charity association sent 50 tickets
to Chas. Comiskea, manager of the Chi
cago White Sox, asking him to take
some of them. Comiskey send a check
for the 50 and another check .saying
'Just tear up 50 more." '
T "WASX'T cold," said tho Wenth
whether it wns or no."
In reality, this 'morning, only
jBnt El Paso felt cold,' just the same, because EI Paso wore summer underwear, and In some cases straw hats.
So it must be altered someway, for instance, like this: It wns not cold in EI Paso yesterday and this morning;
It only felt cold.
