Business Men Will Assail
the Present High Rates
and Ask for Reduction.
A meeting has been called by D. M.
Payne, president of the chamber of com
merce, for the purpose of protesting
against the higher insurance rates "for
El Paso as announced by the actuary -of
the insurance companies of Texas and
also shown by the coinsurance clause
which now appears in the fire insurance
The meeting will be held Friday after
noon at 4 oclock and will be for the
purpose of forming- an organization
among the premium paying citizens to
combat the effort of the Insurance com
panies to increase the rates in El Paso
over those in force in the past and to
saddle this elty with a part of the risks
in other cities of Texas, where the con
struction and physical conditions are the
cause of greater fire risks.
The agents of the insurance companies
in El Paso, while not actively Interested
in the movement, are in sympathy with
it and have expressed themselves "to this
effect. The plan, while not definitely
decided, is to protest to the state rating
board against the 5t) cent key rate as
fixed for El Paso and also against the
80 percent coinsurance clause which re
quires a property owner to carry insur
ance to the value of SO percent of the
value of his property or become liable
for the difference between the amount
of insurance carried and the 80 per
cent of the actual valtse.
t The protest will be filed with the state
rating board and it is probable that a
hearing wiir be ordered by this board,
to be held here.
Witnesses will be introduced to show
that the El Paso rating Is too high
and that the fire protection, construction
of the buildings and the inmiunitv of
the city from fire, deserves a lower- In
stead of a higher rate than has formerly
een in effect.

Tale Of the Hens and Man Charged With Theft
Comes a new one to El Paso.
It is from Springfield, Mo., where on
Easter morn four years ago, three ne
groes were mobbed and hanged to the
statue of the "goddess of liberty,"
standing on the public square, and also
where originated a noted criminal case,
in which the defendant was later clear
ed because he was charged In the in
dictment with committing an offence
"against the peace and dignity of state,"
rather than "against the peace and dig
nity of the state."
It is not "the tale of the kangaroo,"
but the tale of two hens, a man charged
with their theft, a suave and trusting
lawyer, and a ruling, that has not as
yet been copyrighted, by a justice of

W WEST LAKE PARK
.Supreme Court Has Import
ant Question to Decide in
Railway Damages Case.
ON SICK LIST
Washington, D. C, March 17.
Whether a husband may be considered
the "personal property" of his wife,
and whether the "Blow-Post law" of
Georgia is constitutional are two of the
questions at stake in the unique suit of
Mrs. Josephine King, of Georgia, against
the Southern Railway company, ar
gued today before the supreme court of
the United States. . It comes up at
time when the only bachelor justice of
the court, justice Moody, is too ill to
consider thu case.
The suit is for damages, arising out
of a railroad accident. In the autumn
of 1303, Mrs. King, her husband, A. O.
King, and her daughter, Miss Inez King,
were riding along a country road In
Georgia behind a mule. A high bank
obscured the view of the tracks of the
Southern Railway company just ahead
of them. As the mule got squarely
upon the track, a through passenger
train from Washington to lAtlanta
struck it and the buggy, killing King,
and injuring the wife and daughter.
Mrs. King got damages In the state
courts for injuries to her person. She
also sued on the death of her husband.
It is this suit which was argued here
today before the supreme court.
The Court Arguments.
In the lower court, the railroad com
pany contended that the recovery in
the stale court for Injuries to her per
son estopped Mrs. King from maintain
ing an action for the death of her hus
band. The circuit court of appeals for
the fifth circuit, in passing on the
judgment of Mrs. King for $3250 for the
death of her husband, considered the ar
gument by th railroad.
"The contention is made that the in
juries to the person of the wife and the
loss occasioned bj the death of her hus
band," said the court, "constitute a
single cause of action and that separate
actions willnot He. This contention
appears to be seriously made, but in the
practice and procedure of the several
states it would appear to be a legal
novelty without law or precedent. If it
be conceded that the deceased husband
was the 'personal property of the
