Richard J. Baker Is Fatally
Hurt by Fall (Family
Asks For Body.
A message has been received by the
family of Richand J. Baker, a promi
nent El Peso building contractor, that
he had met death by an accident which
occurred Friday at the plant of the
Guanajuata Development company, at
Guanajuato, ilex., where he has been
employed for two years. In spite of
telegraphic appeals by the widow and
children, who live at 809 Myrtle ave
nue, no assurance of the disposition of
the body has been received.
Three telegrams told of the injury
to Mr. Baker's chest by a fall, of .his
critical condition, and the last of his
death at 11:30 Saturday morning. In
response to a message from the com
pany management stating that inter
ment would be attended to, the family
demanded that the body be shipped to
El Paso, or at least Juarez. But no
answer has arrived, either from the
mining officials or the American con
sul, who was also notified.
If no word Is received today the be
reaved family, the widow, two daugh
ters, and a son will depart tonight
for Guanajuato, a more than two days'
lourney. Grief at the death is being

increased by misgivings over the dis
position of the father and husband's
Erect Fort Bliss Buildings .
Of the El Paso contractors of a de
cade ago, few were as prominent and
successful as was E-ichard J. Baker.
Besides many minor building works,
residences and business houses, he was
chief contractor of the old Juarez smel
ter, and under government commis
sion erected the most of the Fort
Bliss buildings. He also built the
First Methodist church structure. His
greatest activities in El Paso occurred
from 15 to 20 years ago, for a num
ber of years under the firm name of
TVhitmore & Baker. Later Mr. Baker
engaged in construction work on the
Pacific coast in cities of Wyoming. Ore
gon and Washington. Also, he was en
gaged in construction work for Greene
Cananea properties, and was a minor
contractor in building the El Paso
Smelting company plant.
Mr. Baker has been engaged two
years as general superintendent of con
struction for the Guanajuato company.
At the time of his death he was erect
ing some aerial tramways. It has
been about a year since Mr. Baker vis
ited El Paso. His youngest daughter.
Miss Elsie Baker, received a letter
from her father last week, e.rranging
for her to visit him.
Many Relatives Survive. J
Mr. Baker was 57 years or age, born
In Pennsylvania. He came to El Paso
24 years ago. Surviving are the widow.
Miss Elsie, who lives at the family
residence; another daughter, Mrs. R. E.

New York, N. Y., July 11. The cot
ton market was very steady during the
first part of the session, the traders
being more and more influenced by
the strengthening- position of the new
crop. There seems to be no material
improvements in the conditions over
the entire belt and the daily develop
ments seem to induce nll lower esti
mates of the crop. The mercantile crop
l ronnrt sa.vs that the total crop Is irac-
tionally less than 12,000,000 bales indi
cated. The condition in Texas is not
satisfactory. A prominent authority in
the special report on Texas says the
plant is small but is generally doing
well, and that all sections -of the state
need rain and some need it badly.
Speaking of cotton mills in North Caro

Saxon mills, at Spartanburg, S. C, one
of the largest spinning districts in
the south, says there will be the larg

long hat pin from her hat and with a
thrpe nound indian club in her Iert
hand, she went to discover who was

man, apparently an American, wearing
a large light colored hat, a soft white
shirt and dark trousers. He was with
out a coat.

wanted .the girl stabbed at the man
witn the hat pin, sticking it into his
side. She also swung the Indian club
and smashed him on the -side of the head

ran down Arizona street. No trace of
him could be found by Mr. Scotton after
ha returned home with Mrs. Scotton.
