In leading up to the motive which
the state claims caused the alleged
murders, Mr. Reed asserted that the
overpowering greed for money had
manifested itself In Dr. Hyde.
"With the purpose of adding to his
wealth, Mr. Reed said. Dr. Hyde made
love to women and then obtained mon
ey from them. The deaths of Col.
Swope, Chrisman. Swope and Jmes
Moss Hutton were dealt with in aet&::.
Charges that Dr. Hyde js responsible

Swope household, and that on three oc

show that Col. Swope was poisoned with
cyanide of potassium as well as strych

he was practically bled to death by Dr.
Hyde, who was indicted for negligently
killing Hunton by bleeding.

to testify as soon as he us is able to be
about, provided the case is not closed by
After prosecutor Conklin had read the
indictment, attorney Reed for the
prosecution objeeted to the presence
of Mrs. Hyde in the courtroom during
the making of the opening statement of
the prosecution. Judge Lathshaw ruled
that Mrs. Hyde and Mrs. Swope might
remain an the courtroom but all other
witnesses were excluded.
At the first mention of Mr. Reed ot
Dr. Hyde's alleged intention to exterm

torney for Hyde made a strenuous ob

case making such false statements."

Such testimony as they will give is

Prof. Martin's Statement,
Prof. Martin's letter to The Herald
El Paso. Tex.. April 1C, 1910.
Editor El Paso Herald:
A little later than this last year 7
took o?casiOT to writ.e ou a letter ex
plaining at least in part the causes
which operated in bringirg about the
unfortunate condition of affairs in the
public schools. You did not at that time.
I am sure, realize the truthfulness of
the contents, of the letter, nor see the
accuracy of my delineation of the ob
structing causes which have impeded the
educational progress of El Paso. Tho
letter was received in good spirit, how
ever, and I have thought many times
that I detected in your editorials a note
of evident sincerity of purpose. Of
course some of your views on education
are not entirely in accord with mine,
but this is to be expected and need not
prevent my speaking to you with candor
concerning an editorial appearing in
Saturday morning's Times.
The editorial deals with lhat part of
the mayor's message t-oncerning the
public schools, and is misleading to the
public, as indeed is tne mayor s message,
I do not think that the present deplor-
able financial condition of the schools
should be made the chief issue in the
campaign for better school administra- i

The main object of this letter, how
over, is to place before you some re
liable facts concerning the present finan
cial condition of the schools. The fig
ures that I shall give you may be de
pended upon. They are absolutely ac

the contrary is indicated, and may be

The public schools of this city havn
Issued registered warrants to the amount
of $1S2,324.7S, since July 1, 1909. Three
months of the session yet remain, two
of them, April and May, are what wo
call active months that is. months in
which full salaries are paid to the teach
ers, and in which the bill for supplies
and janitor service is large. These
active months have cost us thus far an
average of about $22,00Q.
The Year's Expenses.
The month of June is a vacation
month, and last year cost $13,703.18.
Calculating that the two remaining ac
tive months will cost us $20,000 each
and the month of June will cost ?12,000,
we have a .total . of $o2,00"0 yet to be
expended in the current fiscal year
which, ends on June 30. Adding this to
the $1S2.000 already expended, we have
a total of $234,000 expected expenditures
fof the current fiscal year. Now, there
was a deficit of about $22,000. (I say
about $22,000 for this Indebtedness; the
exact figures are not obtainable, but
this is a close approximation) on the
first day of last July.

Ministry of Mexico.
Mexico City, Mex.. April 18. Enrique
C. Creel, governor of Chihuahua, will
most probably succeed Ignacio Mariscal,
head of the department of foreign re
lations, who died Saturday of pneu
monia. Mr. Creel was formerly am
bassador to the United States and
stands high in diplomatic circles. His
appointment as successor is under con
sideration. The funeral services-of Ignacio Mar
iscal, which were held Sunday, were
attended by president Diaz, vice presi
dent Corral and other Mexican digni
taries. His body was placed in the
French cemetery beside the remains of
his wife, who died four years ago.
The deceased diplomat's political ca
reer started with his appointment to
the federal congress by the state of
Oaxaca, and was followed by his ap
pointment to the attorneyship of the
federal government and to the task
Of carrying out of the laws of for
feiture In connection with the church
property in 'the republic.
A Maximilian Notable.
So great was the confidence of presi
dent Benito Juarez in Mariscal thnt
during the Maximilian empire he sent
him to Washington to assist in hand
ling a delicate .situation growing our
of the violation of the Monroe doc
trine. Mariscal was born In Oaxaca, the
birthplace of president Diaz, of whom
he was a lifelong friend and adviser.
He was a member of congress when
the present constitution of Mexico waa
adopted in 1857. A few years later he
entered the diplomatic service of his
country and in 1S69 went to Washing
ton as first secretary of the MexlcaD
To the English Court.
He was made minister in 1872. He
was appointed minister to Great Brit
ain In 1874, having served as special
envoy to that country during the pre
vious year. Upon the election of Diaz
to the presidency in 1S7C. Mariscal was
made minister of foreign affairs, which
office he had continued to fill since with
the exception of a year during the pres
idency of Gen. Manuel Gonzales.
That Enrique C. Creel, governor of
Chihuahua, will be named to succeed
Mariscal as minister of foreign rela
tions, fc regarded here as probable,
though no official intimation on tho
subject has been given.
It U known that Creel enjoys the en
tire confidence of president Taft.
