Socorro, N. M., July u. There Is much
pollUcal activity here, this being the
residence of the chairman of the Re
publican ,and Democratic committees.
TL O. Bursom, chairman of the New

as a man of jrreat power and consider

The chairman of the Democratic com

Jeffries In Oakland
Oakland, Cal., July 6. James J. Jef
fries arrived in Oakland this morning
In a private car. He was taken in an
automobile to a hotel and immediately
secluded himself, even declining to see
old friends who called to extend per
sonal condolences. Jeffries will leave
for Los Angeles tomorrow evening and
will go at once to his ranch. The big
fighter still shows the marks of his
encounter. His face is badly marked,
his lips swollen and cut, and his right
eye is almost closed. He walks with his
head low, indicating in every line of
his big body a feeling of sadness. His
spirit seems to be gone.
Jeff Is Surly.
Jeffries refused to answer the a- I
sertion of Muldoon and others that lie
was "all in" before he ever entered the
ring. Surly and taciturn, the big fight
er maintains almost absolute silence,
which his brother. Jack, and hisgfffflfe
are unable to break. Jefrries refuses'
to look at a paper, it is said, andfsnaps
angrilv at anyone who offers a word
of criticism of his tactics during the
fight. "My steam was gone; I knew it
in the fourth round: I tried to f igrTrv but
couldn't," he has said once or twice
since his defeat, but of the reasons
which led up to this condition, he re
fuses to talk. r

Humidity in the Air, Little
Breeze Stirring; Typical
"Back East" Night.
TUESDAY HOT AS
ANY THIS SUMMER
Whew, it's hot!
It was and Is hot. Even an absolute
void of clothing makes little difference.
It's hot in El Paso for the first time
While the delicate thermometer up
in the Southwestern building where"
the government weather dispensary is
located only showed 101 degrees as
Tuesday's maximum, even that was
pretty high. That point was reached
on official thermometers at 5 p. m. But,
of course, it was much hotter down in
the street,, and few persons live as high
as a skj-scraper. June D was the only
other day this year as hot as Tuesday.
The real test came last night. There
was little air stirring, an early even
ing wind subsiding into an almost dead
calm. Front verandas were occupied
by many sleepless ones, and sleeping
porches seemed little in advance of
Turkish bath rooms. Tho minimum was
reached at 5:30 Wednesday morning,
when the government glass read SI.
Last , night at S oclock It was 95: at
10 It was 93; at 12 it was 91; at 2
it was. SS; at 4 it was S6.
Old timers are saying that it is the
hottest night for a score of years, not
hot in degrees, but hot in feeling,
which, after all, is the only important
thing. Everybody blames it on the
"humidity in the atmosphere," because
it was cloudv and still, just like "back
east." But Col. Lane, the government
weather dopist, .pays that the humidity
is not so very high. It stood at 2C
this morning, still the weather last
night felt just like a "back east" night
sticky, hot, close.
While eastern cities are ' the thrall
of literally killing heat, dealing out
sunstroke and death. El Paso may be
considered fortunate. Not a single ca
lamity has been reported. Nothing has
been lost except the public's temper.
