Patronize Home Industries
EL PASOANS should bear in mind that in purchasing El Paso made goods they
are benefiting thecity, encouraging local industries that employ local
workmen, who spend their wages right here at home.
Many thousands of dollars are invested by local enterprises, hundreds upon
hundreds of dollars are weekly paid out for El Paso labor and all this money
comes right back to the El Paso merchants.
Then again, these local enterprises pay taxes and assist in improving the city,
while foreign concerns contribute nothing to its upbuilding.
El Paso now has many factories and enterprises that are worthy of support.
They make good articles and sell them at a price as small as that paid for goods
cot made in El Paso.
The proper way to build up a town is to encourage home enterprise.

THE spirit shown by Richard Caples in c-rfering to buy from J. G. Kinsella the
land in dispute between W. J. Fewel and Kinsella, on condition that Maj.
Fewel carry out his announced intention of erecting an eight or ten-story
ImHaing, shows a snirit that is more than commendable; it is the spirit that ac
tuated the same man when he started a vnew era in building in El Paso by the
erection of his magnificent five-story structure on San Antonio street; the spirit
that has helped to make El Paso what, it is today; the spirit of a progressive man,
2. man who can bury selfishness behind a wish for the general welfare of the city
and his fellow beings. Contrast such actions, with those of the obstructionist and
the credit is still greater.
It is unfortunate that anything should have come in the way of the erection of
the building ts-Hch Maj. Fewel proposes, but fortunate in that it brings out the real
character of one of El Paso's leading men by opening the way for Mr. Caples's of
fer. As it is generally understood, Kinsella had' little to lose by tearing down a
rotten adobe wall and allowing Maj. Fewel to proceed with the erection of his
codem office building and a new wall. Each rr?an appears to have a deed for a
foot cf land lying between their pieces of property the two deeds overlapping as
it were and in the past any dispute was overcome by the use of a community
wall, but when Maj. Fewel wished the wall torn down, that he might erect another
In its place, a protest was registered on the ground that the tenant of the Kinsella
proterty would be damaged. Then the council condemned the wan, and Kinsella
Kt "forth his claims to all the ground and began the erection of a wall of his own,
declaring the courts must settle title to the property. Mr. Caples then came for
ward with an offer to buy Kinsella's claims to the foot of ground and donate it if
Maj. Fewel would erect the sort of building contemplated.
It is regretable that such a course is necessary; that there should be those
shortsighted enough to exercise obstructive tacticsfto prevent the erection of such a
bunding, but congratulatory that the city has such a patriotic and public spirited
citizen as Mr. Caples.
DonTt wait for a change of luck; change it yourself.

The Matter Of
THE matter of rates will be one of the first things to confront the city council
when it takes up the municipal waterworks proposition for solution.
It may be that a raise in the present rates will appear feasible. If this
Is tie case, the cormril will do well to give careful consideration to the proposition
of assessing the minimum charges against all consumers. This is the matter
which brought on the rate hearing before the master in chancery recently and it
would probably cause a protest again from owners of tenement houses, but it is
the fairest solution of the matter.
Persons owning homes or renting them are forced to pay the 90 cents mini
srtnn charge and as much more as is necessary to cover their water bills; to many
of these it is considerable of a hardship, for a man with a small yard of grass and
flowers often finds his bill amounting to several dollars in a month. His work
beautifies the city and makes it to the advantage of his neighbors as well as him
self, for a" beauty spot in a city is not only a joy to the owner, but to his neigh
bors as welL Then why put a premium on the people who have no grass plots;
-who do not try to beautify the city, by letting them off with practically no water
xrat, and raising the rates to the people who are already paying as much as they
Every housekeeper should afford to pay 90 cents a month for water. If there
are ten families in a south El Paso tenement, they should pay ten times 90 cents
or $9 instead of paying by the meter register, as the landlords ask. There does not
seem to be anything unfair in the proposition at all- If a man who occupies a resi
dence does not use his full minimum allowance, he must pay his 90 cents' anyhow,
thec why let off the people who live in the tenements? They may not use their
fnllsO cents worth, but it is worth 90 cents to them to have water for a month if
it is worth 90 cents to the man who has his little home on the northside or east
side or even in the suburbs.
By allowing the tenement residents to pay meter rates and forcing the north
side residents to pay the minimum with the meter rate applicable where they try
to have a pretty front yard it may be necessary to raise the minimum on these
ocople who help to make El Paso beautiful, the majority of them taxpayers, while
the occupants of the tenements, few, if any, taxpayers, will escape the burden.
It would be just as fair to allow the northsiders in a block to combine and nut
in one meter and pay the meter rate as it is to allow a dozen families in a south
nde tenement to demand a meter rate. Every domicile certainly ought to pay the
TrrrTnraTT-n rate; it is even worth considering wherther it would not be absolutely
just and right to charge each separate family the minimum rate; no matter
whether two or more families occupy thesame domicile or not.

FAKING APPRECIATED AS AN ART
NE of the features of the annual
convention of the Photograph
ers' Association of America,
soon to be held ir. Milwaukee, will
be an exhibition of all" the best pho
tographic work produced in the United
States during the past year. Arrange
ments have been made -which will en
able the association to make this ex
hibition thev mw notable display of
ihe products of commercial photog
raphy ever seen in America. In addi
tion to the exhibition, a school of day
light photography will be conducted,
in which the best photographers of the
country will give .working exposition
of the latest methods in the production
of fine phtographlc work.
There also -will be a school in which
photography under artificial light will
be taught by the best exponents of that
system in the country. It is intended
to have the Woman's Federation of
Photographers meet in conjunction with
the other association. This will be the
first regular meeting of the women
photographers of the country.
National Art League Proposed.
A movement is now under way for
the establishment of a national photo
graphic art league. A number of the
leading photographers of the United
States believe that too much of the
spirit of commercialism has pervaded
the photographic studio, and that there
are too few men in the business today
who are really in love with their work.
It is the aim of the founders of the
league to look the country over for
men in the business whose talents are
such that would justify the assistance
of the league in an effort to develop
the gifts they possess and to enlarge
the field of their usefulness.
It has been claimed by commercial
photographers that the possibilities of
their business are much interfered with
by the rise of amateur photography.
In some states, the photographers have
been making efforts to put' an end to
the competition of the amateur. In
Virginia, for instance, a law has been
enacted which places the license fee
for the privilege of taking pictures for
pay at $50 a year. The fines for viola
tion of this law are heavy, and even
imprisonment may result
Thus, when an amateur takes a pic
ture which happens to strike the fancy
of an acquaintance, he is estopped from
charging even the cost of printing a
copy of it. He must do it out of his
own pocket or not at all. It is claimed
by some that this law was enacted to
prevent injury to the business of the
professional. It is cited that many ama
teurs make a habit of developing films
for other amateurs for pay, while in
many small communities nearly all the
picture postcards are made by ama
teurs. One amateur photographer makes a
specialty of keeping a schedule of all
the weddings, luncheons, graduation
day exercises and other events, and
visits these functions for the purpose
of getting pictures. He makes no
charge for taking the picture, but takes
orders for prints made from it. In
this way, he has been able to make
considerable money. Another goes
about "kidnaping" children with his
camera. He catches them in all sorts
of attitudes and surroundings, and his
pictures have .a charm that makes them
sell well 'With" the parents and other
friends of the children.
In New York, an amateur photog
rapher engages in what he calls pho
tographic charity. He goes into the
very poor districts and takes pictures
of those who have none of themselves
and children, and who have no money
to pay for pictures. From these he
prints two copies, one to be kept in
the home itself, and the other to be sent
to the old home, wherever It may hap
pen to be.
Commercial photographers find many
ways of drumming up business. One
of them sends out a booklet in which
he advises women how to dress and
how to pose. He advises them to wear
very plain clothes, preferably with low
neck and short sleeves, as he says
dresses of this character never go out
of style, while the mpre ornate ones
may make a picture look ancient in
only a few years.
Color Photogrnpliy Practicable.
Rapid progress is being made by
commercial photographers in the ex
cellence of their work. New materials
and new methods have enabled them tp'
produce results which are fairly en
titled to recognition as works of art.
It is now believed that color photog
rahpy will soon be made generally
available. In England, a naw process
of color reproduction has been discov
ered, whereby a picture mar be taken
in the fiftieth part of a second. Un
der the older methods of color pho
tographj, it required more than 40 sec
onds to take a picture, and as a usual
thing it was dificult to get natural
poses in this way.

and daring which might be told of pho

Go to Los Angeles.
Three months ago Rupert and Mrs.
Ropars arrived in Los Angeles and took
modest apartments at 377 West Fourth
street. They remained there but a few
days and then moved into a handsome
little bungalow at 45th street and Cen
tral avenue. But in the mejmwhile the
news was sent out from Bismarck, N.
D., that Mrs. Rupert, the mother of
Wilbur R. Rupert, was lying at the
point of death and calling constantly
for the presence of her favorite son.
Wilbur Rupert saw this obscure item
and left at once for his parents' home
to attend the bedside of his njother.
As Rupert stepped from the train in
Bismarck he was arrested by a deputy
sheriff from Du Tage county, Illinois,
and a few days later was placed In a
cell in the Illinois jail.

it was said that the only man who

clad in asbestos clothing ventured far
into the crater of the great volcano

great interior furnace. Whoever has

The photographers who have sought
to photograph wild animals and birds
In their native haunts, are the heroes
of scores of hair-breadth escapes. There
are several notable nature -photograph
ers who have done much work in Afri
ca. One of the most famous, Dugmore,
has done much work by flashlight, get
ting pictures of lions and other danger
ous animals at close range in the dark.
Dugmore also took a photograph of an
infuriated rhinocerous at a distance
of 15 yards, when the huge animal ac
tually was charging upon him and his
camera. Just as the exposure was made
Dugmores companion shot the beast.
The Keaton brothers, who made the
moving pictures of the Roosevelt hunt,
have done much work In photograph
ing wild birds. This requires great
skill, infinite patience and abundant
physical strength. They have kpt still

Tngenions Plans Adopted.
Photographers often are very much
put to it to devise ways and means of
taking difficult pictures. A film of the
Hudson tunnlls was wanted. A large4
truck was loaded with mercury vapor
lamps and run through the subway as
the second section of the train to be
photographed. The aggregate candle
power of these limps was more than
50,000, and when the film was com
pleted, one could see the whole process
of subway travel, from the .boarding
of the train under the city of New
York to the arrival through the gates
at Jersey City. '
Photographing a flying bullet would
seem to be an Impossible feet, yet the
photographer has so perfected his sen
sitive plate that even a bullet may
seem to stand still while being pno-
tographed. Of course, no shutter is
fast enough to catch a bullet when go
ing at top speed, so the alternative is
taken of maintaining the camera with
the shutter open in absolute darkness.
As the bullet passes out of the gun.
It completes a circuit which makes a
very bright but snort-nveu eiectnc
It Is d-iring the immeasurably short
life of this spark that the impression
of the bullet, with all of the surround

plate. Shutters have been perfected
which will open and clpse in the thou

the photographic plate is able to see

in which faking is honorable and a
means of profit. "When the grandson
