Analysis of El Paso's Spe
cial Census Shows Single
Men Exceed Women.
Kl Paso has known since the first
part of February that It has a popu
lation of 70.711 within the corporate
limits. Now comes from the bureau
of census at Washington an analysis
of that compilation of figures. The
report ii prepared under the super
vision of Kunnons K. Kllsworth, of the
bureau of census and arrived In 111
Paso Saturday morning from Wash
ington. One thing that th analysis
liows Is that there are .more men of
irarriageable age than women In Kl
Tlie summary of the report reads:
i:i l'aso is situated near the extreme
wisiirn angle of LU Paso county and
of ih- slate of Texas, on the north
bank of the lUo Grande. From lkli
until after the Mexican war, subse

ranch. 1:1 Pxso was first Incorporat

census in 1880, at which time the in
habitants numbered 736.

"In 1830 the City's population had
reached a total of 10,358 and during
the next decade It grew to 1M. The
census showed a population of 19,279,
and the special enumeration made as
of January IS, 1916, a total of 61,898.
In addition to the number of bona fide
residents enumerated at this special
census, there were within the corporate
limits of the city 7061 refugees, or
persons temporarily residing In Kl
Paso awaiting settlement of condi

coming of the railroads; while the con

tributed to its development into a
transcontinental and International rail

of the existence of excellent transport

the greatest addition to the population
occurred was that from 1900 to 1910,

latter part of this period of marked
expansion, namely in 190T, that the

Col. George Wythe Baylor, a pioneer
of Texas, with a record In the Civil war
and as an Indian fighter In the early
days. Is dead at San Antonio, aged S3
Col. Baylor is well known In EI Paso,
where he lived for many years before
going to Guadalajara, which was his
home for some time prior to the Madero
revolution. While living In El Paso
and after he went to Mexico, he was a
frequent contributor of early day rem
Inisceneea of the border to The El Paso
Colonel Baylor came to Texas as a
mere boy In 1847. A six weeks cam
paign against Comanches just prior to
his enlistment in the southern army
was the first extended service which
young Baylor saw. On that occasion he
was leader of a company of 33 fron
tiersmen, which Indicates that from the
beginning his powers of leadersihp
were recognizee!. He was sworn in as
first lieutenant of Capt. Hammer's com
pany in San Antonio in May, 1861, His
orother, John K. Baylor, was lieuten
ant colonel of the regiment. He went
with his company to Fort Clark, and
from there went to El Paso as his
.served at Y.l Paao.
Shortly after his arrival in El Paso
there occurred one of those strange in
cidents which marked the Civil war as
one of the most tragic In all history.
The first regiment of the union army
they were called upon to fight was that
to which his father had been attached
during his lifetime, the Seventh infan
try, and he and his brother had rela
tives and a large number or
friends In its ranks. Duty is duty, how.
ever, and neither side flinched. Though
there were 760 men in the union forces
and a little over 300 In those of the
Confederates, after a short struggle the
entire union regiment was captured.
Seen JolinMon Hie.
From this time Ccl. Baylor's ad
vancement In rank was rapid. After be
ing stationed for a short time at San
Augustine Springs, in New Mexico 'now
Coxs ranch), he received an appoint
ment from Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston
as his chief aide-de-camp and went to
join Gen. Johnston's staff at Bowling
Green, Ky. He remained on Gen. John
ston's staff until the latter was killed
at Shlloh. and his was the last! face
that the gallant Confederate leader saw
on earth. Col. Baylor regards It as one
of the greatest honors of his career that
It was his hands that held the head of
Gen. Johnston during his last moments.
" 1st Jin ill- Colonel.
After Gen. Johnston's death Jefferson
Davis promoted Baylor to the rank of
'Qiajor, with authority to raise a battal
ion of Texas rangers for service In the
southern cause. The battalion was later
increased to -a regiment and Baylor's
rank raised to that of colonel by presi
dent Davis's order. While tile regiment
was never raised, because of the com
ing of the close of the bloody struggle,
Col. Baylor retained his rank, and it
was a dispute over this that led to what
CoL Baylor regarded as the saddest
event of his life. It will be remembered
by old timers that It was Col. Bailor's
misfortune to kill Gen. John A. Whar
ton during a quarrel, and that he was
tried three times before lie was finally
acquitted after the war. Col. Baylor
declared that the whole truth about this
sad affair has never been told.
Soon after the civil war Col. Baylor
was commissioned by O. M. Roberts,
known as "Old Alcalde," at that time
governor of Texas, as second lieutenant

The beans were seized by the govern

Indians made a raid, and as a, result he
saw his first fighting since the close of
the war. One Mexican bad been killed
by the Indians and a party of Mexicans
went along with the rangers in pur
suit of them across the Rio Grande.
Overtaking the band at 11 oclock In the
forenoon, they fought with them until
dark, killing three of their number. One
horse killed -was the rangers' total loss.
It was shortly after this that CoL
Baylor had his first experience with
Victorio and bis bloodthirsty band of
Apaches The band had kilted 33 of
the principal citizens of the town of
Carrisal (near what Is now Villa Ahu
mada) in the state of Chihuahua. Mexi
co. A party of 15 had cone out against
the Indians, and had all been killed,
and a relief party of IS that had gone
out in search of the first party had also
met death at the hands of the Apaches.
The citizens of El Paso del Norte (now
Juarez) organized and asked CoL Bay
lor and his rangers to join their party
to go in pursuit of Victorio. Col. Baylor
consented, and when the two parties
got together the Mexicans wanted him
to take full charge of the expedition.
Col Baylor, however, objected that,
they being on Mexican soil, a Mexican
ought to command, whereupon an old
pioneer Mexican, Francisco Escajeda,
was made leader, and Col. Baylor served
as second In command. Nothing came of
the expedition, however, for, upon
scouring the neighborhood of the mas

had crossed over again into New Mexico.

Another expedition Into Mexico that
came to naught so far as the Americans
were concerned, but which was really
the beginning of the end for Victorio
and his band of Apaches, came soon af
ter this In, the meantime CoL Baylor
had been made captain of company A.
Texas rangers. With 20 rangers under
his command.- Col. Baylor joined Col.
Joaquin Terrazas, an old Indian fighter,
in Chihuahua. The United States army
sent Lieut. Parker -with GS Chlricauhua
Indian scouts also to join Col. Terrazas,
and 20 negro soldiers under Lieut. Man
ney. to aid In the campaign against the
Apaches. After following the trail of
the Apaches for some time, they suc
ceeded In locating them, but the Mexi
cans became uneasy because of the
presence of the Chlricauhua Indians In
the party and expressed the fear that
they would take part with Victorio if
the latter made a good showing in a
fight "For they are relatives," said the
Mexicans. On the other hand, they ar
gued if Victorio Is defeated the Chlri
cauhua Indians would want all tho sad
dles. For these, and'probably other rea
sons. Col. Terrazas announced that ht
had orders not to allow tho Amorlcans
to remain on Mexican soil, and so the
rangers and the United States troops'

cans, however, met Victorio at Tros

a treat number of them, nearly annihi

The final extermination of Vlctorlo's
band came about as the result . .' the
Apaches attacking a stage In Whitman

was Morgan, and a -passenger named
Cieiishaw. Col. Baylor wont to the scene

A GREAT change has come over
the central and eastern parts of
the sky, the constellations now
In the ascendant there being of a to
tally different character from that 01
those which throng around Orion. It
is a singular fact that a real differ
ence exists In the general nature of the
stars In the Orion neighborhood and
that of those In other parts of the sky,
so that astronomers group certain stars
presenting peculiar spectroscopic In
signia, under the name of "Orion stars.
In a broad sense they appear to be
younger than the other stars. Whether
the prevalence of white stars around
Orion produces an appreciable effect
upon the eye or not. It Is certain that
the constellations now occupying the
meridian and advancing up the eastern
slope of the heavens make a less daz
zling impression The light of their
stars seems more subdued and less
penetrating. They are the advance
guard of the summer stars, and their
softened rays accord with the charac
ter of the season, while the gem-like
brilliance of the winter stars repeats
the sparkle of the snow landscapes
spread beneath them.
Showers of "Shooting Star."
April is notable for one of the an
nual "showers" of shooting stars.
These particular meteors are known
as the Lyrlds because they radiate
from the little constellation Lyra,
which Is remarkable for the beauty of
Its chief star Vega, and which may
1 be seen rising In the northeast This
"shower" occurs during about three
I evenings, from April 20 to 22.
It would be well to await a little
later than the hours for which the
I chart Is drawn (9 p. m. for the first
of the month; s p. m. Tor tne middle,
and 7 p. m. for the end). In order that
the radiant point may be higher In the
sky. The Lyrid meteors are remark
able for the darting swiftness of their
flight The observer must not expect
to see m&ny of them; If he catches sight
of half a dozen in an hour be may b
well satisfied. Tf he traces their ap
parent paths backward he will find that
they all center about Lyra.
The pure whiteness of the star Spies !n
Virgo commands tho admiration of all bo
holders. In this respect 8 pica will be seen
to differ noticeably from Arcturot. In
Bootes, which lies far to tb north of Virgo.
Arcturus Is generally regarded as the bright-
est star north of the equator, although to
some eyes Veea seems to be its suuerlor.
Arcturus is often spoken of as the Star of
Job, being referred to by name In one of
the subllmest passages of the Book of Job.
Its color, in contrast with that of Spkta and
Vega, Is yellowish, and when near the hori
zon decidedly reddish. West of Areturus,
and nearly orerhead shines the Great Dip
per In Ursa Major The rlrele of the
Northern Crown (Corona) Ii now becoming

In the northeast Hercules Is rising, and be
