In Mexico "Mr. Morton stated: VI have
been in Mexico for the last three weeks
and while there went to the extreme
southwestern part of the republic, down
over the Pan American railway as far
as the Guatemala border. The railway
runs through a country the fertility
of which surprises everyone who sees
it. The country Is a hot one but very
healthy and the best (looking people
and the best looking livestock I saw
was across the border.
"Any country that can successfully
produce cattle, cotton, corn, coffee, co-
coanuts and pineapples and all other
sorts of tropical fruits, Is bound to be
in demand by settlers. Land is cheap
and extremely productive.
"I found general conditions in Mex-
iro satisfactory and was much im-
pressed with the people and the good
will that prevails there."

A Eisiug Yote Taken at the
Luncheon Stevens
Starts Discussion.
That El Paso needs a new hotel was
ne unanimous expression, as mam-
fested by a standing vote, of the bus
ness men attending the Thursday noon
luncheon at the chamber of commerce.
As announced Monday by secretary
Kinne, the luncheon today was to be
marked by a discussion as to the needs
of El Paso. Horace B. Stevens was the
first to obtain the floor, and he re
marked, facetiously, it later developed, ;
that El Paso does not need a new ho
tel, giving as his reasons that It could
not be operated at a profit, and that
the summer months in West Texas were
too hot.
Start DiscuMsion.
Secretary Kinne immediately arose
and took exceptions to Mr" Stevens's
remarks, stating that the hotels in El
j Paso at present are unable to provide
iWnmmnrtiitinns for nn--icc r that

W. H. Tuttle was also "taken in" and
advanced reasons why a hotel should
be erected here at once. He stated that
traveling men were unable to obtain
suitabde sample rooms when in this city.
W. L. Tooley called Mr. Stevens's
bluff, and asked for a rising vote qa
the proposition. It carried unanim
ously. '
It developed after the luncheon that
Mr Stevens and secretary Kinney, of
the chamber of commerce, outlined the
discussion several days ago and then
memorized the speeches they delivered.
Out of Torrn Vinltors.

luncheon Included J. D. Schuyler and

Mexican Paper Criticizes
Him and He Says Tnere is
-a Plot to Discredit Him
and He Will .sxpose it.
Mexico City, Mex., April 14. The j
newly arrived American ambassador, j
,,
he is going to uneaJrth and expose it.
As yet he merely says:
"In due time the exact character o.
the intrigue, which is one not only
hostile to the embassy, but to the in
terests of the American government as
well, will be known."
it was a recent speech of the new am-
1 bassaclor tnat is me oasis oi -ue i-
l- ble. According to a dispatch sent from j
here to a New York paper, Mr. Wilson
is said to have "succeeded, as no other
diplomat before him, in exciting the
Latin blood of Mexico through a histor
ical reference to the empire of Charles
V of Spain, which, he said, enslaved
the bodies and souls of the people of
two hemispheres in the name of God,
and attributing to the Aztec and Toltec
blood in large degree the rise and de
velopment of Mexico's civilization."
Even the Americans present were
said to have received his words on these
subjects with great astonishment.
The Real Criticism.
The ambassador's words were criti
cised editorially by EI Correo Espanol,
a newspaper of limited circulation
among the Spanish residents here, and
this was made the basis of the story
telegraphed from Mexico City and re
published in New York.
El Imparcial, regarded as particularly
the representative publication of Mex
ico, as well as a number of lesser Mex
ican dailies, commended the utterances
of the new ambassador. As for the
Americans present, the reference passed
almost unnoticed. The entire speech,
which was a response to a toast, was
warmly applauded.
Wilson Not Sorry.
Of hi own words on that occasion,
Mr. Wilson -says:
"Mj- speech was intended as a com
pliment to the Mexican people and I
believe was so received by them. Only
a distorted imagination of malicious
intention will be able to discover any
purpose to offend or any absence of
courtesy.
"Since I arrived here, the Mexican
people and the vast majority of -he
Americans have been most courteous
and kind, but there seems to exist, as
yet undefined, but none the less active,
an intrigue, furthered by high interests
which did not welcome the coming of
the present ambassador. In due time
the exact character of this intrigue.
which is one not only hostile to the
embassy but to the interests of th
American government as well, will be
known.l
I stated to several persons that he was
! originally from Missouri.
Conducted Bnini Here.
Robbins first came to El Paso in the
early SOs, coining from Santa Fe, where
he was engaged in t-onGucting a "furni
ture business with his brother, A. D.
Robbins. The firm removed to El Paso
and the business was conducted here.for
several years. After he left that busl-
j and was a patron of the gambling
houses that flourished in the old days of
the city, according to a pioneer.
It Is said that Robbins was a native
of Virginia. He was at one time the pro
prietor of an eating house on the Santa
Fe railroad and was known to postmas
ter J. A. Smith, who, at that time, was
a mail clerk on, the Santa Fe. When the
local gambling houses were outlawed
Robbins followed the carpenter trade,
but as he grew older he left his trade
and during the latter years of his life
he had been acting as night watchman
for contractors, which -was his occupa
tion at the time of his death. He was
about 60. years of age.
Justire E. B. McClintock, who con
ducted the inquest, returned the verdict
"that the deceased came to his deatlf
by an accidental fall down the eleva?
tor shaft." '
The justice also says thai a half pint
bottle containing some whisky was
found abouta foot rrom the body.
Attics and close? are the breeding
places of many fires. An attic is gen

AMUSEMENTS.
GRACE GEORGE.
"A Woman's Way," which will be
presented at the El Pao theater next
Monday night, was written especially
for Grace George and. it Is said, fits this
young comedienne unusually well, al
though it is more dramatic than pieces
generally attempted by comedy aet-
resses. The wide range of Miss George's
capabilities, however, enables her fully
to rea.ize and completely exploit all the
possibilities of the role. Thework is
from tiie pen of Thomas Buchanan, a
young New York newspaper man, and
is the second piece he was attempted.
Seats are now selling at the Crawford-
"WIZARD OF OZ" AT WIGWAM.

other features of the opera appear. It
made an especial hit with the chil
dren last night. Two other pictures
will be shown.

The strength-giving properties of
Cardui are not the result of powerful

been proven to have a merit, that is
all Its own.
Cardui Is prepared principally from

and combined with other ingredients,
to form a scientific medicine.- that
