SHEPPMRD. IS

VISITJEHE
New Senator From Texas Is
Invited by Business Men
to Come to El Paso.
RAISING MONEY
FOR ADVERTISING
fefc
, E IT resolved that the mem
bers or the El Paso cham
ber of commerce assembled
at the weekly luncheon congratu
late Hon Morris Sheppard upon
his election to the United States
senate, and that we invite senator
Sheppard to visit El Paso at his
earliest convenience, as the guest
of our people."
This resolution was offered by'Zach
Lamar Cobb and unanimously adopted
by a rising vote of the business men at
luncheon at Hotel Sheldon Thursday at
noon.
Mr. Cobb, In presenting the resolu
tion, explained that El Paso had much
to sain by being friendly to "this great
man, senator Sheppard;" and that "the
adoption of the resolution will not
benefit Mr. Sheppard, for he is elected
to the senate for six years," but it will
benefit El Paso." He said El Paso
had grown past the small ways of the
email town; that it should take a big-,
generous stand.
"When El Paso pats itself in a posi
tion of antagonism to a great man like
senator Morris Sheppard, it cannot
hurt him, for he is too big to be in
jured by us or anyone of us. We must
take a big stand, a high stand and a
stand that will put the interest of El
Paso above any other interest on God's
green earth. When I was rn Washing
ton senator Sheppard said for me to
tell the people of EI Paso that he was
rea-dy to get out of his bed any hour of
the night to help El Paso in any
legitimate cause. I do not ask you to
take a stand on politics, l do ask you
to take the big. high patriotic stand
of adopting this resolution and I will
ask you to adopt it by a rising and
unanimous vote and to invite this dis
tinguished man and good- friend of El
Paso to come to El Paso, not to help
senator Sheppard. but for the good of
El Paso and the Elephant Butte dam."
The demonstration -which followed
was an old fashioned chamber of
commerce affair. There were cheers
for Cobb and for senator Sheppard
when the unanimous rising vote was
taken.
Progress of Soliciting.
Sanford B. Ricaby read a report of
the soliciting committee that is rais
ing the budget fund of $60,000 for the
work of xhe chamber of commerce, 'l ae
total amount raised was over $3700.
This was raised sinee Monday after-
nr when the committee started to
the hotelsand Woermea. ?
said. and the amount raised is mere
than double that which was raised
Trom the same sources last year. When
Mr Ricabv read the list the names of
the Paso Del Norte and the Sheldon
hotel were applauded, the Paso Del
Norte giving $120 and the Sheldon
5600. with a promise of another sub
scription from the Orndorff hotel.

Dr. Thomas Harwood, of Albuquer
que. N. M., was introduced by presi
dent V. R. Stiles, of the chamber of
onmmerre. and said that he had voted
for the Cobb resolution, although he J
was not a member or a citizen, because
he believed that anything that would
help El Paso would help New Mexico.
"Stranger's Impressions."'
Claiborm. Adams read a letter giving
"the impressions of a stranger" on El
Paso in which local institutions were
rapped and a number of humorous ref
erences were made to the fact that but
19 were present at the annual chamber
of commerce meeting.
E. L. Barrow, of the Klrby Lumber
company, was also introduced and
spoke as did Charles A. Russell, who
introduced F. L. Elliott, of the Clint.
Tex., News, and K. G. Schairer, or
Clint. Mr. Elliott said that Clint was
ready to do anything to upbuild the
city or county.
Adolph Hoffman suggested that im
migration to the El Paso valley was
necessary, as rich land and plenty of
water could not develop the valley
w'thout the right kind of people.
A Lively fleeting.
The meeting was the livest that has
been held by the chamber of commerce
in years. The grill room of the Sheldon
was crowded to capacity, and Mr. Stiles
announced that the next meeting would
have to be held , in the main dining
room. There were 51 present, which is
an increase of 35 over that of the last
meeting. Mr. Stiles kept things moving
in his live wire -way and announced
that directors' meetings would be held
Thursday evenings following the week
lv luncheons in order that suggestions
brought up at the luncheons could be
considered bv the board.
Plans are being made for an auto
trip to the upper valley Saturday by
the chamber of commerce. There will
be a barbecue at the Bailey ranch, near i

NEW MEXICO ASKS FOR
RATE READJUSTMENT
Santa Fe, N. M., Jan. 30. The state
corporation commission of New Mexico,
has filed with the interstate commerce
commission at Washington what is be
lieved to be the biggest and most far
reaching complaint ever filed before
that body.
The action complains of some 50,000
rates to and from New Mexico and at
tacks them under sections 1, 3 and 4,
of the act for the regulation of com
merce. Section 1, of this act, provides
that rates must be reasonable and just,
section 2, that no city or communltv
shall be built up at the expense of
another city or community, section 3,
that rates directly to intermediate
points shall not be more than to more
distant points.

SUNDAY AMUSEMENTS
LEFT TO THE CITIES
A'
TJSTIN. TEX, Jan. 30. The anti-
frat bill by representative Har
ris, of El Paso, . came up today
for consideration before the house
committee on criminal jurisprudence
and was referred to a sub-committee,
due to the fact that Mr. Harris has
received many requests from fraternity
men and others who want to be heard
on the measure. The bill will be set
for consideration at a date to be agreed
upon later.
Cities and Sunday Law.
The same house committee today re
ported favorably on the bill by repre
sentative Parks, of Dallas, giving cities
of 51,009 or over the authority to regu
late their own Sunday amusements,
with an amendment that any incor
porated city in Texas may take ad
vantage of the act.
Cattle Bill Reported.
The house committee on stock and
stock raising today reported favorably
on the house bill extending the scope
qf the livestock sanitary commission

It has the endorsement of the sanitary-
commission and also of the "lexas
Cattle Raisers' association and of Dr.
Allen, of the federal bureau of animal
industry.
Extra Session Certain.
An effort is being made to obtain
an early sine die sojournment of the
legislature. Representative Broughton
has obtained the signatures of 85
members of the house who favor ad
journing at the expiration of the con
stitutional limit of 60 days. -Ie will
offer a resolution to that effect. This
will force an extra session, as it will
be impossible to pass the general ap
propriation bills within that period.
Early Saloon Closing.
The senate judiciary committee re
ported favorably the early saloon
closing bill, and also a bill by senator
Vaughan to compel retail liquor deal
ers to file an annual report with the
controller snowing the ownership of
property and contributions mane for
any political purpose.
To Study State's Water Supply.
Senator Hudspeth today introduced

ttOR, the state to act jointly with the
federal government.
Governdr Sends Message.
The governor today transmitted to
the legislature a special message bear
ing on the penitentiary system of the
state. The message shows.that the re
ceipts of the system from January 20,
1911, to December 31, 1912, were $1,879,
698, and disbursements $1,840,925. It Is
shown that the present liabilities of
the system aggregates $1,578,069. The
report shows that during 23 months to
December 31. 1912, the state railroad
was operated at a loss of $50,103. The
governor makes a number - of recom
mendations. among them being the sale
of the state railroad, the creation of
the position of business manager and
also of purchasing agent, making it a
felony to inctie convicts to mutiny or
riot, and making it a penalty to
smuggle liquor into the prisons. The
message shows the loss to the cane
crop by a freeze was $285,302.
The State's Finance".
In a special message to the legisla
ture, the governor has given a detailed
statement of the expenditures in the
executive department from the time he
took charge as governor up to January
14. 1913. The statement shows that
from January 17, 1911 to August 31.
1911, there was expended in the execu
tive department $10,001, and $1309.11
on the mansion and grounds. From
September 1. 1911, to August 31, 1912.
there was expended by the executive
department $25,989.03, and $8704.80 on
the mansion and grounds, and from
September 1. 1912, to January 14, 1913,
the executive office spent $7071.52, and
and $640.95 on the mansion and grounds.
New Stock nnd Bond Law.
Gov. Colquitt does not favor the bill
which has been drawn to cover the rec
ommendation in plank 14 of the Demo
cratic platform, affecting changes in
the stock and bond law, which seeks to
make it easier for railroad cornorations
to build new lines and dispose of their
securities, so he Informed representa
tive Humphrey at a conference. The
bill will have to be drafted again and
an effort made to meet the objections
found by the governor. Mr. Humphrey
declares he is opposed to tampering
with the stock and bond law, still he
wonld like to see new railroads built.
Consequently a new bill is to be written
which may meet with the approval of
the governor.
The house .judiciary committee to
day reported favorably the bill which
seeks to amend the stock and bond
law. This bill provides for a revalua
tion of the property every five years
on the application of the railroad com
pany. Bills Favorably Reported.
The committee on constitutional
amendments in the senate has reported
favorably resolutions submitting the
Initiative and referendum and woman's
suffrage to the people.
The house committee on asylums has
reported favorably Burges's bill placing
(Continued on Page Two.)
and all New Mexico roads are made
direct defendants, although the total
list of defendants totals 71.
The complaint shows among other
things that the rates to Farwell, Texas.
are from eight to lour cents lower
than to Texlco, N. M., although the tn o
towns are only separated by an im
aginary line. Trinidad, Colo., and
Raton, N. M although only a few miles
apart, have rates which discriminate
against Raton.
The success of this case, said one of
the commissioners, would mean the
building tip of immense wholesale trade
ut of Albuquerque and would save the
state almost a million dollars a year
in railroad freights paid.
The action is regarded as so import
ant that the commission requests a
hearing before the full membership of
th inuitite commerce commission it

Senator Declares Measure Is

For Presidency.
THINKS THERE IS NO
DEMAND FOR CHANGE

JJ An attack on
C, Jan. 30.
the proposed
single six-year presidential
term, as a measure advocated by "as
pirants for the presidency," was made
In the senate today by senator Dixon,
chairman of the progressive national
committee, who declared he did not
believe there was any great public
demand for the proposed change in the
constitution.
"If the truth must be stated," he
said, "this resolution might better be
enlisted as a proposed amendment to
the constitution."
Wants Wilson to Benefit.
The senate took up the Works reso
lution proposing the amendment under
agreement to vote before the close of
the legislative day. Senator Paynter,
Democrat, offered a provision that
when the amendment should be rati
fied, the president in office should be
entitled to a six-year term. He de
clared no question should be left open
as to whether it applied- to president
Wilson.
"Wasn't It your understanding that
Mr. Wilson was elected for a four
year term?" asked senator Dixon.
Senator Paynter returned that the
amendment should be made so that it
would take" effect immediately, not
withstanding who might be in office.
Senator Dixon's retort was to suggest
that it be so changed that It would
not apply to president-elect Woodrow
Wilson. He declared that no amend
ment should be adopted to the con
stitution that -would prohibit the people
of the United States from exercising
their own judgment as to whether a
president should be reelected.
Wilson Faiom Single 'itrm.
Senator Marti ne, of New Jersey, de
clared senator Dixon could "leave
Woodrow Wilson out of the debate"
as Mr. Wilson had announced his sym
pathy with the Democratic national
platform, which endorses a single pres
dential term..
Senator Dixon declared he had heard
that the real author of the single term
plank in the Democratic national plat
form was "a man whose name began
with B and was not Beckham and de
manded, ot-jsanalar Martian. .whether
p Klasate-alectrwnsOh Ba - In' preeftfe
language limited himself to a single
term.
Senator Root objected to certain pro
posed amendments " declaring that
changing the federal constitution was '
so serious a matter that it should not
be complicated by the consideration of
the "personal interests of Wilson,
Roosevelt or Taft.'
An amendment authorizing the recall
of a president at any biennial election
was presented by senator Bristow.
Senator Bacon offered an amend
ment to reduce the proposed six year
term for a president to a single four
year term. It wag defeated, 42 to 25.
Wont "Weight BUI Amended.
In an atmosphere tnat was peppery.
manufacturers or
flavoring extracts j
and pepper appeared before the senate
manufacturers' committee to ask that
the "net weight bill' be amended so
as to permit "reasonable variations."
They produced samples to show that
it was impossible to manufacture glass
containers of precisely the same size.
"It seems to me a hardship and an
unreasonable additional cost to require
the man who sells peanuts at a ball
park to have the weight marked on
each package," declared senator, Oliver,
the chairman.
The senate adopted a concurrent
resolution for a memorial to congress
in favor of the Kenydn-Sheppard liquor
shipments bill, by a vote of 32 to 16.
The house had already adopted the res
olution. Encourage Rifle Practice.
A bill approved by the senate com
mittee on military affairs would per
mit schools and rifle clubs to secure
out of date army rifles for practice,
and appropriate $50,000 for practice
ammunition and for the carrying on
of shooting competitions under the
direction of the secretary of war.
The Page vocational education bill,
authorizing maximum appropriations
of over $14,000,000 for agricultural and
trade educational "work, was adopted
by the senate as a substitute for the
Lever-Smith bill, which has passed the
house.
Democrat Block Appointments.
The second skirmish between Re
publicans and Democrats of the senate
over president Taft's appointments re
sulted In the defeat of the Republi
cans. As a result the Republican lead
ers have less confidence in their ability
to break the Democratic opposition and
to force action upon some of the hun
dreds of pending appointments.
Senator Jack&on. of Maryland, has
introduced a bill proposing a plan of
federal cooperation with the states for
highway improvement. The bill would
authorize the government to pay one
half the cost of improving highways
used by mail carriers and would ap
propriate $10,000,000 annually for the
work.

the fur felt hat industry, was arguing
against the duty on raw material used
in the fur felt hat industry, an attendant

ALLIES PLAN SIEGE
BEFORE ADRIANOPLE
L'
ONDON. England, Jan. 30. Events
in the Balkan peninsula are mov
ing with such rapidity that the
world may soon be confronted, not with
the question of peace or war, but with
a catastrophe which "will lead Turkey
into a tremendous civil war.
Those who know the Ottoman empire
believe the rei-olt among the Turkish
troops on the Tchatalja lines was more
grave than was announced In the short
dispatches passed by the censor. Close t
observers or events in Turxey expect
that similar revolts will occur in the
Asiatic provinces, where the elements
opposing tl e young Turks are stronger
than in European" Turkey.
Concentrate on Adrlanople.
The plan of the allies so far as the
plenipotentiaries are informed is to
concentrate their forces on Adrlanople
immediately after the expiration of the
prescribed four days, following the
termination of the armistice, if the sur
render of that fortress does nqt occur
in the meantime. They believe that a
few days' bombardment bj; the big
siege batteries which now surround
Adrlanople will bring about its capitu
lation. The Balkan representatives declarfe
that all reports that Roumanla would
aid Bulgaria against Turkey are un
founded, and they add that if Roumania
should take advantage of the oppor
tunity to gain ber territorial claims
by force while the Bulgarian army is
engaged with Turkey, Bulgaria would
let her occupy the territory she de
mands. But as soon as the Bulgarian
army disposes of the Turks, the Bul
gars will turn their attention to the
Roumanjas and attempt to make them
pay dearly for this racial disloyalty,
which the Bulgarians consider 'would
be treason.
BULGARIAN GENERAL WARNS

and, with your irresistible movement t
forward, show the enemies and the
whole world that Bulgaria deserves
more respect-"
BULGARIAN THINKS BATTLE

Paris, Prance, Jtn. 30. The Bul
garian minister of finance, C Theodo
roff, who is on his way to Sofia from
the London peace conference, declared
today' that he regards, the resumption
of war between the Balkan allies and
Turkey as certain. "The first engage
ment probably will open next Wednes
day, he added.
BALKANS END ARMISTICE;
TURKS HAVE FOUR DATS' GRACE
Constantinople, Turkey, Jan. 30. The
Balkan allies today gave notice of the
termination of the armistice, the period
of grace of four days to start at 7
oclock this evening.
VETERANS PROTEST AGAINST
DESECRATION" OF THE FLAG
Boston. Mass., Jan. 30. A little party
of Grand Army veterans climbed Bea
con Hill and made "one more stand
for the old flag" this time to prevent
what they described as its "desecra
tion." Bills providing that only the Stars
and Stripes, except in cases of inter
national courtesy, might be displayed
in the streets of Massachusetts, arc
before a legislative committee. All are
directed toward the suppression of the
red banner, which appeared in the
Lawrence textile riots.
Prof. Ellen Hayes, of Wellesley col
lege, addressed the committee as a lay
defender of the red banner. "There
is no conflict whatever," she said, "be
tween the Stars and Stripes and tho
red flag, because they all must come
in time to what the red flag stands
for. The red flag is the flag of hu
manity and the flag of peace."
SUFFRAfcjETS START RIOT
AT DUNDEE. SCOTLAND
Dundee. Scotland, Jan. 30. Well or
ganized bands of suffragets raised a
pandemonium today during the ceremo
ny of conferring the freedom of the

had hardly risen to acknowledge the
honor, when shrieks of "traitor, traitor,'
filled the hall.
Stewards and policemen soon were
occupied in throwing the women out
of the building. Howls of, "you brutes,

marked the passage through the hall
of each group.

S PROBED
El Paso Attorney Gives
Facts to the Police Inves
tigating Committee.
SAYS 37,600 WHITE .
SLAVES IN U. S.
N1
EW YORK, N. Y Jan. 30. With
his evidence reduced to the mat
ter of fact form of a card in-
dex.
Samuel H. London, of El Paso,
Texas,
who has been seml-officially
connected with the department of Jus
tice at Washington, has laid before the
aldermanlc committee; which is inves
tigating police conditions here, the re
sult of his seven years' study of white
slave traffic
He called New York "the capital of
commercialized vice" and said that
with the assistance of 14 agents placed
at his disposal by the government, he
had carried on Investigations "from
Fairbanks, Alaska, to the canal zone."
He declared that his census in New
York revealed that there were 6100
men profiting from commercialised
vice in which 26.000 women were in
volved. He charged that the police
often aided the traffickers. He believed
that policemen were concerned in the
matter.
Mr. London has Just recently re
turned to New York from El Paso, to
supervise the publication of a book
which - embodies Ms studies In white
sMve trafl3& H nufde .these studies
while employed by the Jewish B'Nal
B'RIth lodge.
His card Index shows that there are
37,600 women in the United States en
gaged in this business who are paying
trioute to and supporting men. He
made no record of the women not sup
porting men. e aeciares tnat their
annual earning power is $195,520,000.
or an average of $5000 to $6000 each
per year These women, he says,
spend $78,208,000 a year for clothing,
rent and food, and the rest of the
money goes to the men who virtually
own them; thus the net amount of
money that goes to white slave own
ers in a year in the United States, he
declares, is $117,312,000.
Mr. London made a tour of Europe,
investigating the origin of the white
slave traffic there, while working for
the B'Nal B'Rith. He found that much
of the traffic originates in the province
of Gallcla, Hungary, a province where
the rabbi told him that 45 percent of
the births were illegitimate, and where
girls are reared for the purpose of be
ing sold into slavery.

motion to recommit the bill.
The house refused to recommit by a

county with $15,000 for buildings and
$5000 annually, was reported favorably
while a bill giving a state fair to Ros

(THIEVES REMOVE
ROOF FROM HOUSE
Chicago, 111., Jan. 30. Of all odd
booty of thieves shown in the police
records, the most curious was reported
today, when K. A. Williams, who lives
alone and works at night, complained
that thieves had stolen the rpof of his
house.
"If it rains or snows today, my fur
niture will be ruined," sighed Williams.
Williams's house is a one-room affair,
on which he had just placed a new roof.
The new timber evidently was regarded
a valuable asset by the thieves.

How to Insure
Your Poeketbook
Q To do that you simply make sure of getting the highest quality
for the most reasonable price. You yourself cannot be familiar
with the values of all the necessities you buy, and so you must rely
on what others tell you of the good points of the various articles.
q Insure your poeketbook by taking the word of the man who has
his all at stake the manufacturer himself. If he tells you an un
truth through his advertisement you will not continue to use his
goods, and his profits will fall off. In time his misleading state
ments to buyers will drive him out of business.
You can insure your poeketbook with the help of THE
HERALD get quality and price and convenience with small
effort Rely upon the advertisements of THE HERALD'S
advertisers. You can in that way put yourself out of the power of
unscrupulous manufacturers, and be guided to the stores of re
liable dealers. It pays in time, money, and trouble saved to read
THE HERALD'S advertisements closely and constantly every
day.

who supply Juarez. Other reports are

east of the town.
During the early hours of Thursday
the Juarez garrison was reinforced by
additional troops and artillery, includ
ing "El Nino," the big ship's cannon
which is regularly carried on a train,
between Chihuahua and Juarez to
guard work trains repairing the track
that the rebels keep destroying. The
arrival of the reinforcements is knows
to the rebels and may have an im
portant bearing on the contemplated!
third annual assault upon the town by
rebels.
Reinforcements Arrive.
Reinforcements reached Juarez at 4
oclock Thursday morning qn two troop
trains protected by two cannon mount
ed on fiat cars. The reinforcements
comprised about 400 troops of the 23d

The trains and cannon returned to
Villa Ahumada in time to disperse tbe
rebels under Caraveo. the federal

the two cannons into action and scat
tering the attacking force, killing
many, the federals claim.
The trains then proceeded to Juarez;
to the relief of the town. The officers
announced that the troop trains would;
go back at once, after it was learned
that there would be no attack upon
the town by Salazar's rebels. The two
trains are said to carry two machine
guns each, in addition to the two
cannons. During the engagement a
