Mother Forgets Her 4-Year-Old,
Leaving Him on a Street Car
San Antonio is getting to be a real
modern little city. Another evidence
of the modernity of the'old town came
to light yesterday when a mother on a
Sap street car alighted on Houston
street and left, her 4-yearold boy sit
ting comfortably on one of the front
seats. <,. ...
Now in Houston, Dallas and other lit
tle old-fashioned Texas towns the
mothers always take their kids with
them when they get off the cars.
But this little chap wasn’t any more
worried over the situation than his
mother was. He sat up on the seat and
watched the choo-choo wagons chug,
and enjoyed the ringing up of the fares
hugely and apparently wasn't bothered
over anything when the conductor dis
covered him.
When the brass-buttoned man asked
the kid who he belonged to, the answer
was prompt, if rather vague.
“Mamma,” was the answer.

“Where is your mamma!” asked the
eon ductor.
The youngster waved his arm !n four
different directions with an air of final
ity peculiar to 4yearolds.
Not knowing what else to do with
him, the conductor turned the kid in
at the Traction company's office like

The kid took a distinct liking to the
inspector in charge and adopted him
on sight. He was a bright little fellow,
who had evidently been taught just
where he lived as a protection against
just such a contingency.
The inspector, who, by the way, is
somewhat of a Sherlock Holmes him

as the kid was left on the Sap car he
must live out that way somewhere. So

Last Month
The stork visited 119 homes in San
Antonio during July, according to the
reports on file in the office of the
health oepartment. The birth recorl for
the mouth is the largest showing ever
made in the city, the previous record
having been 103 births.
This number is expected to be mate
rially swelled, as it is customary 'for
many reports to reach the office dur
ing the first week following the end
ing of each month. The number of male
births during the month is given as 57
and females <52. Of the total births, 8

, H. Collard Denies Anti-For
eign Sentiment Exists.
J. H. Collard, of this city, who has
.pent a number of years in Mexico and
is well acquainted with conditions in
he republic, says that many American
newspapers are doing incalculable harm
>y publishing articles written under a
false idea of the real conditions that
Txist in Mexico.
“I am personally acquainted with
Hundreds of Americana in Mexico, and
1 think they will all bear mo out in the
itatement, that if there is any one
thing about which all Mexicans agree,
it is. that they need, foreign capital,
and will do everything in their power
lo disprove the very statements made
in the editorial referred to,” said Mr.
Collard yesterday. “In fact these and
similar stories always cause a smile of
Serision among Americans who have
been there for any length of time.
“In Mexico City, and among mem
bers of the American colony, you fre
quently hear such stories referred to as
pipe dreams.’ It is a strange thing

I 1 San Antonians Are Investors.
“There are in this city at the pres
ent time many gentlemen who have in
vested their time and money in Mex.
ico, and I doubt if one of them would
' agree to the statements made, and yet
a gentleman who has been there once
told me that it was ‘preposterous for
mo to contend 'that there was not a i
widespread anti-foreign sentiment there
among the miners.’ Now mining men
', know that if this were true we couid
never get our work performed, and yet
we have found that they have made the
best laborers in the world.
“The fact that certain papers in
Mexico have advised the American pa
pers to keep out of the political agita
tions now going on in Mexico does not
justify the statement that there is a
foreign sentiment there and to draw
such an inference is real funny. ‘We
have nothing whatever to do with their
political quarrels, and it is good advice
to any foreigner to tell him to keep
out of it. That there is one or two
papers there, that are prejudiced
against Americans is true, but to con
clude from this, that there is an anti
foreign sentiment all over Mexico is
ridiculous. In fact Americans in Mex
ico have frequently discussed this very
thing among themselves, and have de
plored the fact, that many of our pa
pers in the United States, have not bet
ter information on this subject.
“It has been told so often, and ao
persistently, that men who are not fa
miliar with the real conditions take it
for granted, and rush into print and
repeat the oft-repeated story, and the .
people suppose of course, it must be
; true.
“It is sometimes supposed that there
I is no anti-foreign sentiment among the
more intelligent Mexicans, but as a
■ gentleman said to me this morning,
‘ all the lower class hate Americans. ’
। He got his information from a printer .
| who had possibly set type there for
! about a year, and was willing to take
his testimony against that of men who I
have worked hundreds of men in the I
I mines for years.
' Makes Protest.
“As an American, I protest against ;
such statements being repented, for it ;
is no greater injustice to Mexico than
it is to those of us who are interested
I there. True, there is a strike there
now, growing out of a demand to place
Mexican boys under the tutilage of
American train dispatchers, but this
does not prove that there is any ‘anti
foreign sentiment’ there. The same
thing would occur here and has occur
red here over and over again where the ;
management of any great corporation j j
has tried to place incompetent men in I
charge of concerns." that involved the I
lives of the public. True there is. and I
has always been a sentiment there in I
favor of protecting natives against for I
eign capitalists, and we have had the ■ I
same sentiment here, and besides that I

we have put 'the sentiment into statu

570 IN JULI -
Fines Assessed by Recorder
Buckley Aggregated $3521,
Increase Over June,
With a total of 570 arrests and fines
imposed in the police court aggregating
: $3521, the police department was busy
I during July. The fines imposed by
Judge Buckley show an increase of
$779 as compared with those lodged
against defendants haled before the
corporation court in June.
The report of the workings of the
police department for the month was
completed yesterday afternoon by Jos
' Braden, clerk of the corporation court.
In addition to the cases tried in the
police court, 30 cases were transferred
to the county court and 14 to the juven
ile court. A decrease is shown in ths
। arrests of automobilists, indicating that
“scorching” is less indulged than here
tofore. But five arrests were made fo«
violations of the ordinance regulating
the speed of automobiles, as compared
with twelve for the previous month.
The arrests are classified as follows:
Disturbing the peace, 72; assaults, 41 j
affrays, 93; abusive language, 14; nuis
ances. 7; drunks, 98: vagrancy, 108|
stale meat, 1; thefts, 21; carrying
weapons, 9; miscellaneous, 111.
Of the eighty-eight millions of popu
lation of the United States, one-third,
speaking in round numbers, are found
in the thirteen original states.
