Companies Say El Paso Is
G-oing to Like New Law;
If Not, Go to Mexico.
Austin, Tex., June 25. The insurance
hearing is over.
All day Friday, the representatives
cf the insurance companies presented
letters and figures intended to show
that the whole state is satisfied with
the law and the rates and that r. gen
eral reduction has resulted, the only
exceptions being El Paso. Orange and,
perhaps. Fort Worch.
Counsel for the companies suggested
that El Paso might secede from Texas
and move into Mexico if she did not
l like it, but he explained later that this
ias a joke, as he assured El Paso rep
resentatives that they would learn to
like the new system and that El Paso
would have a lower rate than she ever
had if bhe would improve fire protec
tion and individual risks as other cities
have been doing.
urdnv flfrer fllln an !mmwis(4 .,,- of
material -v. ith the board.
J Aside from the El Paso represeuta-
tives and a representative each from
Orange and Fort "Worth, nobody was
in attendance the last two days except
the half hundred insurance men, who
say they are not here to defend the
law, but to save their scientific rate
making system which unquestionably
has very much to commend In princi
ple, though in practice it has given El
Paso a severe shock.
The law is likely to be repealed by
the legislature, although it would be
better to retain and amend it. There 1
is no doubt that the legislature, and
not the companies, is responsible for
the requirement that rates become ef
fective January first this year. The
companies wanted the new rates and
schedules effective not before next year, j
but the legislature forced action In
this matter and must be held responsi
ble for much of the disturbance, haste,
errors and unreasonableness of the ap
plied rates and half cooked schedules.
The companies are undoubtedly mak
ing out a strong case for their side,
but they have had every advantage
in collecting data, for they have had
nearly 3 00 experts working oh matters
of which a layman is but superficially
All this matter is now of pnblic rec
ord, open to anybody's inspection but
naturally it takes experts to analyze
and interpret it.
It is believed by attorneys Sweeney
and Hudspeth that the majority of the
board will promptly grant a relief or
der, but what action the companies will
thereupon take is a problem.
A SLANDEE SUIT
Chicago, 111., June 25. Mrs. Mary A.
Lavender, who sued Rev. E. D. Craw
fordj pastor of the TVoodlawn Methodist
Episcopal church for $50,000, charging
slander, was awarded S4000 by the jury
which returned its verdict in judge
Siangan's court today.
Mrs. Lavender charged that Dr. Craw
ford accused her, to various persons, of
having been unduly intimate with John
D. Leek, a former pastor of Woodlawn
church, later at the head of the West
ern avenue M. E. church, but at pres
ent a business man. Dr. Crawford al
leged that Mrs. Lavender had confessed
to him and his talk concerning the case
was due to a desire to preserve the
honor of the church.

To Credence Given Report
of Revolutionary Tend-
encj of Troops.
Pekin, China, June 25. Strong con
fidence In the loyalty of China's modern
army is expressed by the officials of the
boar,d of war and the higher officers
at army headquarters here in Pekin.
These expressions, made apropos of
the reports fhat the new army may
prove an uncertain quantity in the event
of any serious disturbance in the
Yangtse valley or elsewhere, contain
nothing that would indicate doubt in
the minds of those voicing them.
That among the 180,000 men of the
new army there may be some few who
have read the revolutionary pamphlets
that from time to time find their way
into circulation they do not doubt, but
that the army as a whole contains any
thing worth calling a revolutionary
"element" they do not believe.
At "Wu-chang Gen. Chang-Plao has
the eighth division, of 12,000 men, and
Gen. Li-Yen-Hung has the 25th mixed

total of about 30,000.

Of course it -Is impossible to correctly
predict whether there will be any trou
ble on Sunday or not, but, judging from
present indications, there will not be the
slightest disturbances where the Ameri
cans would be concerned, and the most
seriow; trouble expected for Sundaywlli
be among the working class of natives,
who will necessarily ceae all labor in
order to celebrate the event in the way
they are accustomed to do.
It is probable that the Four C's com

for over Sunday, as there will not be a
corporal's guard at the plant on Sunday.
Since the additional soldiers arrived
here during the week, there has been
less excitement and considerable less
talk regarding conditions promised.
Quite a number of agitators have left
the city on foot for the smaller settle-

some demonstrations there.
The most frightened of all are the
