Very respectfully. S H. Newman Of Course We Will. Publishers Herald: In your ad vertising columns appears the adver- tisement of tha National Guar antee Loan and Trust company, where in my name appe.irF.as pres'dent of the El Paso branch. 1 presume my elec tion to this position whs owirg to a belief entertained by the s ockholders in this city that there was a kind of relat;on existing between the business of buiTding and loan and that of life insurance and that, as I was recognized as somewhat of an authority on life in surance. I ought to ba posted on build ing end loan. Whether th's be true or not, I feel that my duty to the persons who elected me demand that I should not allow my name to be ufed in an advertisement designed to forward the interests of this institution after it has ceased to poetess my confidence. My experience with the National Guaran tee Loan and Trust company has not satisfied me that it is worthy of the support of El Paso people. You will therefore please remove my name from among those appearing in Its advertisement in your paper. S, ti. Newman, Mutual Life. Only One Bidder for a Great Railroad Sale. IT BROUGHT $53,500,000.
