POLICE SAY BUT LITTLE ,
COCAINE SOLD IV EL PASO
With the possible exception of three
casts, there Is no unlawful selling of
cocaine by local drug store men, ac
cording to the police. It is stated that
the police are rigidly enforcing the
law governing the selling of that drug,
and where a violation is discovered it
is followed by an immediate arrest. So
phia Parada, who owns a place in the
lower part of town, was arrested by
the police some time ago on two
charges of unlawfully selling cocaine.
She was convicted in the corporation
court on the charges.
The police say that the unlawful sell
ing of cocaine is almost entirely re
stricted to those nersons who bring
the drug over from Juarez. In these
rases they state that it is very diffi
cult to ferret out the guilty persons.

Waterworks Superintendent Gives Up
Position; School Notices to Be
Put on Bulletin Boards.
Tucumcari, K. M-. Oct. 7. A. D. Pan
key, superintendent of waterworks of
Tucumcari, has resigned his position,
the resignation to take effect as soon
as a successor can be appointed. The
resignation is said to be the result of
a desire of Mr. Pankey to engage in
other business. A number of appli
cants have already arisen for the po
sition, it is said, but no action will be
taken in the matter of choosing a new
superintendent until next week. Dur
ing the last year, several miles of new
water mains have been laid, and about
50 additional water meters installed
with another 50 now on the way here
to be installed at once. Approximate
ly $1000 obtained from the sale of the
old wool scouring mill last month, will
be expended on the plant through
the purchase of a new boiler, negoti

Hereafter all public hauling must be
done by licensed draymen in Tucum
cari, an ordinance to this effect hav
ing been passed by the city "council.
The license on public drays was re
duced to ?5 a year in order to make it
easy for anyone to engage in this oc
cupation. The ordinance is said to be
the Tesult of much annoyance and even
loss through the employment of Irre
sponsible haulers. By the license sys
tem an easy track may be kept of any

J. F. Hofer, superintendent of the
city schools, was given the right by
the city council to erect permanent
bulletin boards at stated points in the
city on which to make announcements
of entertainments and other events at
the local schools. It is said that many
class entertainments take place -which
are of great interest to the general
public to whom great difficulty Is
found in notification. At the same
time it is felt that with the presence
and interest of the public, the schools
would be bettered.

street, has changed ownership, J. B.

WAS IT JUST THAT WAYT
Editor El Paso Herald:
You state in a recent iss,ue that the
government had supported all the de
nominational schools among the In
dians and afterward took crer those
schools and made them government
I know how hard It is for an editor
to get things down right, for he has
to write much In a hurry and cannot
titko timn to verlfv his statements. In
. thi3 instance, I am sure the memory
of your correspondent was at lauit,
for the history about those Indian
schools is this:
The government did not support any
denominational school among the In
dians, but the Roman Catholic schools,
the other denominations standing con
sistently for separation of church and
state, but the Catholics accepting such
support as their dootrine, as an
nounced recently by the Federated
Catholic societies in their session at
Louisville is, and always has been:
"All schools contributing to good cit
izenship are entitled to equal support
from the state."
This support from the government
to Catholic mission schools among the
Indians werrt on until Gen. Morgan
(who was a Baptist) assumed office.
He maintained that such support -was
contrary to the American doctrine of
separation of church and state, and
the support of Roman Catholic schools
only, while other denominations were
doing similar work, was showing par
tiality, and under his administration
the support was discontinued.
When Mr. Roosevelt became presi
dent he soon recommended that "the
government return to the support of
the schools among the Indians as for
merly." and it was done. Of course,
he did not say, outright return to
the support of the- Roman Catholic
schools among the Indians, for that
would have been opposed by many
thousands of Americans, and many
congressmen who voted for the rec
ommendation could not have afforded
to have supported it if their constit
uency had been informed.
Now. after the government had
gone on for years in its support of
sectarian Christian education, they
went through the form of -taking
over" these denominational schools,
