L. B. LOUIS ON
THE 8-HOUR LAW
Ring Officials Were
L. B. Louis, a prominent member o
the carpenters' union of LI Paso, the
largest laoor union in the city, discus
ses the eight hour law and ring of
f oals. as follows:
"With all the political education that
the general public is receiving at the
present time, it is almost incredible
that the ring's officials organ, being
posted upon the details and the eight
i our law, should have the effrontery in
its issue of last Monday, to saw that
this law "went into effect a few days
The fact of the matter is the Cen
tral Iabor union committee, knowing
that the ring officials were woefully
gnoring the provisions of this bill,
i ailed up the district and county at
torneys, requesting them to enforce the
iaw. This they have failed to do. Com--nent
as to why they did not is un
necessary. It-would be well for the la
boring men of El Paso to remember
t ese interesting facts.
During all this time, the eight hour
1,-w has beeri valid for many months,
but it is an established fact that the
i ounty and city officials of El Paso
lave not been interested enough in the
people s welfare and law enforcement
to have this law complied with, while
ts Tiolation has continued by both
i ounty and city officials. And, not
withstanding the fact that the Central
Labor union committee called their at
tention to the law, which was also
published in all three El Paso papers
m full, 'Old Kel" and bis ring officals
refused to take any notice of this law
until his attention was called to it by
tiie secretary of state or attorney gen
eral (anti-Colquitt officials) at Aus
tin according to his own statement.
"It is a fine compliment, indeed,
when our officials have to be repri
manded by the people for the non
enforcement of a law that It is tbeir
sworn duty to enforce. As a matter
or fact it was not the intention of Gov.
"olquitt for the bill to become a law,
but our chief executive, through ig
norance, inflicted his veto power too
late and the supreme court of Texas
iery properly put a 'recall upon that
"The eight hour law now being an
established fact, the people must learn
tfeey have got to look out after their
tun interest." '
Et PASO AHEAD OX RAIN;
BEHIND OX TE3IPERATURE.
El Paso has caught up with the de
ficiency in moisture for the year and
is now 0.16 of an inch ahead of the
average. The month of -June did the
work, when 1.27 inches felL This was
0 72 of an Inch more than the normal
and brought the total up to a point
that is above the average for the. first
six months of the year.
The city is behind on temperature,
however, an average of 1.6 degrees a
day since the first of January, or a
total of 297 degrees less than should
have been chalked up, if it had been

OW you'd better go down and
get everything packed up to
night. You won't have any
time in the morning. We'll be at Ply
mouth by five."
"At five?" Helen turned from the
railing, where she was watching the
faint glimmer of a distant light house
the first sign of land. "Why, War
ren, they won't put us off that early?"
"They'll put us off whenever. we get
there. I told you they weren't going
to dock. We're to be put off on a
tender the ship don't dock until she
gets to Hamburg."
"A tender is that the small boat
which comes out to meet us?"
"That's it. Now you hustle down and
get things into shape. I'll have a
smoke and be down a little latei." '
It was the last night of the voyage,
and Helen longed to stay up on deck.
Everyone was standing around 'watch
ing the faroff light and talking of the
extreme southern course the ship had
taken to avoid the icebergs, and the
time they had lost.
They all seemed imbued with the
restless anticipation that comes with
the sighting of land. Only the few
Ldndon passengers were getting off at
Plymouth, but those booked through
to Hamburg were equally excited.
Reluctantly Helen went down to the
stateroom to "pack up." She knew
Warren's "smoke" woiId end in a game
of whist in the smoking room, where
he spent most of his time during the
trip. But she had hoped that this last
night they would spend on deck to
gether. Because of the small stateroom she
had tried not to unpack many things,
but one article after another had been
needed during the trip, and now she
found the repacking no small task.
It was after 11 when, at last, she
was through, bathed, and in her berth.
But Warren had Hot yet come down
and he still had his things to pack.
She would gladly have done it for him.
f but he would never let her. Said he
could never find things when she put
At length there was a heavy step
down the passageway, and he threw
open the stateroom door.
"All through?" as he began to take
off his collar. 1
"Why, yes, dear, almost an hour ago.
It's nearly 12. isn't it? You know
you've everything to pack, and those
steamer rugs to strap up?"
"Xow, don't you worry about me. I'll
have plenty of time for all I've got to
do. I told the steward to rout me out
"But. dear," as he was rapidly mak
ing ready for bed, "you're not going to
leave everything 'till morning and
you'll have to shave, too;"
"Look here you're ready, aren't
you? Well see that you are and don't
go off forgetting half your things. I'll
attend to mine."
And he turned out the light and
climbed heavily into the upper berth.
It seemed to Helen thaf she had
hardly fallen asleep when the steward
pounded on the door.
Four O'clock, Sir.
"Bath ready, sir. Four o'clock!"
While Helen was dressing and befor
Warren came back from his bath, an
other steward knocked at the door.
"Luggage ready for Plymouth,
Helen opened the door and pointed
to her steamer trunk and bag. "These
are ready but Mr. Curtis hasn't quite
finished packing yet."
"He'll have to hurry, m'am," as he
dragged hers out. "Almost all the lug
gage Is off now."
"Oh, is the 1 tender here already?"
"She's been here for an hour. She's
'round on t'other side."
"Oh. Warren, ou'!l have, to hurry,"
was Helen's excited greeting when he
came from his bath. "The tender's here
already and they're putting on the
Warren grunted something under his
breath, but he began.-to hurry.
"Can't I help you? Isn't there any
thing I can do?" N
"Yes, just get out and let me have
what room there is."
Helen gathered up her hat and veil
and went oat into the passage to put
them .6n. She could hear Warrer. mov
ing hestily about.
"Luggage ready, m'am?" It was the
chief steward this time.
"I I think so," she faltered, and he
knocked at the stateroom.
"Luggage, ready, sir? Everybody's
on now, sir. She's ready to pull off."
The words struck tatror to Helen,
but Warren threw open the door with
a rough: .
"Well, if you put people off at this
outlandish hour you'll have to wait till
they get ready. Here, you can take
Through the open d.oor Helen could
see Warren thrusting things into his
suit case with more haste than she
had ever seen him exert. His hat was
on the back of his head and he was
unmistakably worried. She longed to
go in and help him, but feared he
would only roar at her to keep out of
the way. Suddenly he called:
Where the Sliawlstrap?
"Where's that shawlstrap?"
"Why. Isn't it there?" rushing In to
find him struggling with the big roll
of steamer rugs and coats and looking
desperately about for the shawlstrap.
"Where'd you put It?" he shouted.

"Why, dear, I didn't see It; you un
rolled the rugs."
"Yes, and I put it right there on top
of that, wardrobe."
Helen climbed up on the berth to
look on top of the wardrobe, but only
a life preserver was there. In the
meantime Warren was ringing wildly
for the stateroom steward swearing
under his breath.
Here the chief steward appeared
again at the door. "They're waiting,
sir. The captain says they'll have to
pull off in a moment."
'Well, they'll not go without us.
We're booked for London and they've
sot to land us here. It's the line's fault
for putting passengers off at this In
decent hour. Here, you!" as the state
room steward rushed up. "We put a
shawl strap on top of that wardrobe
what' did you do with it?"
"Sorry, sir, didn't see It, sir." and he
began a hurried search.
Now they were all searching Helen,
Warren, the room steward and the
chief steward. At any other time 'it
would have struck Helen as irresistibly
funny these four people falling over
each other in their frantic search for
a shawl strap in that tiny stateroom.
But with the tender waiting, and no
way to take the rugs and coats, the sit
uation was far from humorous.
Now the second officer came to the
door to find out what was the trouble,
and to say the captain could hold the
tendeisonly three minutes longer
"He'll hold her till we get on" -almost
shouted Warren, "or I'll raise -a
row at your London office that your
whole blame line will hear from!".
Then to the room steward. "Get. a rope
and rope up those rugs! No use look
ing for that strap!'
Off to the Tender.
The steward dashed out for a rope,,
and in a second two of them were-on
their knees tying up the rugs. The
chief steward caught up the restxof
the hand baggage and fairly swept
them down to the tender.
Although only a few of the passen
gers -were landing at Plymouth, many
of the others were up to see them off.

Already the sailors were pulling up
